Subject: RE: info on spanish fandango
There seem to be more than one song/tune with this title.

Levy has one entry (undated):

Title: Spanish Fandango
Composer, Lyricist, Arranger: na
Publication: Baltimore: Carr's Music Store, n.d.
Form of Composition: rondo
Instrumentation: piano

There are also some notes on the web, by John Fahey which contain the following information.

A) FANDANGOS
1. "Spanish Fandango" by Hohn Dilleshaw and the String Marvel, 1930
2. "Spanish Rag" by Herschel Brown, 1930 - a distant variation of (1)
3. "Spanish Fandango" by Bill Boyd and his Cowboy Ramblers, 1938 (sweetened' pop version of (1)
4. "Spanish Fandango" by Mississippi John Hurt, 1966. Arguably a distinct, unrelated piece, just to confuse us all.

Hope that's some help.

Cheers!
