Subject: Song Fest - How many editions?
From: GUEST,Becky
Date: 21 Dec 00 - 01:50 PM

On Aug. 26, 2000 in the thread entitled "Title of Old Songbook" Joe Offer inquired about editions of the IOCA Song Fest, with the same subject line as this thread. (Perhaps someone can put that message before this one??) I found his message because I was about to start a thread asking about the book...

I've got my mother's 1944 edition. It's got a red cover and says "1944 Edition", but doesn't mention editor or publisher. In my mother's handwriting on a flyleaf it says, "Dick & Beth Best, 1.75, Olive Durrell Inc. Pub., 257 - 4th Ave., NY 10". It's got 133 numbered pages, including the index. First songs are IOCA Song and Abdullah Bulbul Amir, on page 100 are She'll Be Comin' 'Round the Mountain and The Ship Titanic. Last song is A Zulu King.

My mother must have acquired this book in 1945 or later, because she labelled it with her married name.

I was about to inquire because this 1944 edition does not include tunes for every song. Do later editions have tunes for every song?

Also, FYI, in my father's handwriting is this additional (penultimate) verse for "Fish Ball": The little man then went outside / And shot himself until he died.

But, sorry Joe, no 1960's "Fascinatin' Bitch".

Oh, I forgot to post the information I received in August from Roland Vinyard. Here 'tis.
-Joe Offer-
I am the IOCAlum Secretary, not the IOCA Sec, but the best person to start with nonetheless. There have been at least 4 editions of the Songfest. My own (2 staira above me, forgive my laziness) is, I'm sure, published later than '55. There was an editon published in the 70's that was different and we boycotted it. The Songfest was truly IOCA's songbook; it carried that songs that we were singing (in the 40's, at least). Many attempts were made to update it andn they never got far off the ground.Crown kept grinding out similar editions while we dallied. Then in the 70's they put out a different edition, one that had lots of new songs that none us us knew, that none us us sang or wanted to sing. It was not IOCA's Songfest any longer. So if you want something substantially new, look for that edition. Trace down Crown publishers (I've been told that they have been bought out, but are still traceable).
There is also a knockoff called "Songs for Swinging Housemothers" that I have, largely plageurized, but still different. It was published in the 60's.

Will Brown would be a good person to ask about the early issues. He probably has all of them, or knows who does - no email or phone that I know of). He was active in using it in the 40's and still does today.

Hope this helps. What is the interest in it now after all these years? IN IOCA, we have been getting regular recent inquiries about it, and for the past 20 years, none. Have we achieved cult status or something?

Roland Vinyard IOCAlum Exec. Sec.

Hi, That's my favorite old songbook. My first copy is a 1955 edition, yellow cover, now tattered with front cover missing, which I probably bought as a freshman in college -- about the same time I bought my D18 (1956) Martin guitar, which I also still have. I also have a 1955 "Song Fest Deluxe" with "300 songs -words and music - Plus 30 Popular Favorites," yellow cover (blue border, price $2.95) with plastic spiral (8 1/2 x 11 inch). I used to have 6 or 8 different copies, but have given all but two away to my children, etc. These were great for campfire singing. I still keep them at arm's reach for quick reference. Unlike the newer Rise Up, it has a line of music for each song, but unfortunately nothing about the author or origin.

Cheers, S. in Seattle

I also have the "Copyright 1948, 1955" edition, yellow cover with blue strips at the top and bottom, "seventh printing, 1959," which I, also, bought as a freshman in college, just starting to learn guitar (and I'm still just starting to learn guitar) in fall 1959.

It fell apart years ago, and I three-hole punched the entire thing, including the cover, so I could keep it in a binder.

Love the songs in what they thought was "darky" dialect. Useful for offending my children.

Peter.

all tattered and torn, 78
Once I was happy but now I'm forlorn, like an old coat
that is tattered and torn, 16
Once I went in swimming, where there were no women, 70
Once in the dear dead days beyond recall, 109
Once there were three fishermen, 46
One time in Alexandria, in wicked Alexandria, 112
Oola had a cousin from the wild and wooly west, 80
Orleans, Beaugency, Notre Dame de Clery, 141
Out on ol' Smoky, ol' Smoky so low, 25
Over hill, over dale, as we hit the dusty trail, 98
Peace I ask of thee, O River, peace, peace, peace, 31
Rich gal, she wears the best perfume, 42
'Round de meadows am a-ringin' de darkies' mournful song,
152
Row, row, row your boat, gently down the stream, 142
Scotland's burning, Scotland's burning, 141
She promised to meet me when the clock struck seventeen,
48
She'll be comin' 'round the mountain when she comes, 5
Sing a song of cities; roll dat cotton bale, 80
Sister Lucy, she wears a low-necked dress, 150
Sleep, my child, and peace attend thee, 106
Soft o'er the fountain ling'ring falls the southern moon, 109
Soldier, oh soldier, a-comin' from the plain, 32
Some think the world is made for fun and frolic, 82
Spanish is the lovin' tongue, soft as music, light as spray, 23
Speed, bonnie boat, like a bird on the wing, 95
Steal away, steal away, steal away to Jesus, 153
Sweet and low, sweet and low, wind of the western sea,
107
Sweet Eveline, (sweet Eveline), say you'll be mine, 102
Sweet the evening air of May, 143
Sweetly sings the donkey at the break of day, 144
Swing low, sweet chariot, comin' for to carry me home, 146
T'ain't my brother, nor my sister, but it's me, oh Lord, 154
Take this hammer, (huh!) carry it to the captain (huh!), 27
Talk about Jerusalem morning, Yes, good Lord, 151
Tell me why the stars do shine, 66
That's where my money goes, to buy my baby clothes, 69
The fish, it never cackles 'bout its million eggs or so, 115
The fox went out on a chilly night, 10
The frog he would a-wooing go, m-m, m-m, 39
The horses run around, their feet are on the ground, 20
The keeper would a-hunting go, 22
The massa love wine, the miss love silk, 42
The other night when I came home, drunk as I could be,
102
The Pope, he leads a jolly life, jolly life, 58
The prettiest gal that ever I saw was sucking cider through
a straw, 16
The shades of night were falling fast, 73
The ship goes sailing down the bay, good-bye my lover,
good-bye, 132
The sons of the prophet are brave men and bold, 56
The woman stood at the churchyard door, woo-oo-oo, 31
The year may have more than one season, 77
There are theories and systems of skiing, 76
There is a house in this old town, 49
There is a tavern in the town, in the town, 37
There was a little Dutchman, his name was Johhny Vor-
beck, 68
There was a ship that sailed upon the lowland sea, 128
There was a wee cooper wha' lived in Fife, 97
There was a youth, a cruel youth, 8
There was an old woman in our town, 43
There was once a maiden named Gretchen Pumpernickle,
60
There were three crows sat on a tree, 26
Three blind mice, three blind mice, 143
Three little chillun, lyin' in bed, 40
Til kona kom der en ung student, 92
To the Lairds of Convention 'twas Claver'se who spoke,
97
True love may be a blessing but it never was to me, 69
Tu n'est pas maitre dans ta maison quand nous y sommes, 87
'Twas a cold winter evening, the guests were all leaving,
64
'Twas eighteen hundred and sixty one, 127
'Twas Friday morn when we set sail, 128
'Twas only an old beer bottle, floating on the foam, 116
'Twas the night that Patty Murphy died, I never shall for-
get, 106
Underneath the takeoff every Sunday morn, 78
Vo Luzern uf Weggis zue, 93
Walking at night along the meadow way, 92
We are climbing Jacob's ladder, 147
We don't have to march with the infantry, 103
We had some chickens, no eggs would they lay, 70
We have a dear old father, to whom we dearly pray, 61
We have a system of skiing that's grand, 76
We were forty miles from Albany, forget it I never shall, 20
Well, come along boys, and listen to my tale, 119
Well met, well met, my own true love, 18
Well you wake up in de mornin', hear de ding-dong ring,
23
Went up on the mountain, 138
Were you ever in Rio Grande? Away, Rio!, 129
What shall we do with the drunken sailor, 134
What's the use of wearing braces, 99
When I was a bachelor I lived all alone, 43
When I was a little lad, and so my mother told me, 130
When I was 'prenticed in London, 50
When I was young I used to wait, 47
When Israel was in Egypt's land, 153
When Joseph was an old man, 53
When Pa (four times), when Pa was a little boy like me, 63
When the old year makes its exit and we usher in the new,
75
Where are you goin', my good old man?, 21
Where hast thou been since I saw thee, I saw thee?, 94
Where the Tuscan sun is warm and bright, 108
White coral bells upon a slender stalk, 142
Who did (four times), who did swallow Jo, Jo, Jo, Jo, 52
Why shouldn't my goose, 142
"Will it go around the chalkstone?" called the belayer look-
ing up, 57
Won't you bring back, won't you bring back Mrs. Murphy's
chowder, 82
Ye gentlemen and ladies fair, who grace this famous city, 15
Y'heave ho! My lads, the wind blows free, 126
You and me know that old hollow tree, 103
You can dig my grave with a silver spade, 154
You can easily tell she's not my mother, 71
You can take a silver dollar and drop it in the ground, 72
You get a line and I'll get a pole, Honey, 45
You got to jump down, turn around, 46
You ought to see my Cindy, 137
Young folks, old folks, everybody come, 50

The 1955 revision ("New Song Fest") has been reprinted a number of times, the last I saw was the 16th printing in 1966.
It dropped "Ain't it grand to be bloody well dead," Zulu King," and some others.
