Subject: Lyr Req: Ive been thrown out of better Joints tha
From: Kenny B
Date: 15 Apr 18 - 03:25 PM

A song just came into my head and cant find it on YouTube or Google

My recollection of it comes from the Billy cotton bandshow era on steam radio

Chorus is roughly
"ive been thrown out of better joints than this x2
Ive been insulted by far better men
So it wont hurt my feelings if you throw me out again"

Better better than beeter !

Look up "Paramor."
There was a producer by that name
and he may have had the copyright on this title.

An online search pulled up something I could only look at in a "snippet"
on Google Books. It was an issue of Gramophone magazine
and it pulled up a paragraph from a review.
The Gramophone review title-checks the song
"I've been thrown out of better places than this"
calling it "very crude." No mention of author credit.

But they do mention that a vocal GROUP sings it,
accompanied by a small ensemble of musicians
led by one Pasquale Troise,
he of Troise and his Mandoliers. Mostly worked in England
although he was born in Italy. Died before 1960.

Keberoxu... thanks ....got that link and the writer composer but I don't think anyone has put it on youtube or posted the lyrics anywhere

I try and get a link to Roy Hudd who had an encyclopedic memory for those sort of things. Hes the right age to ask if he still has all his faculties
