Subject: RE: Goodnight Irene Origin
Just a small aside....

On my wall hangs a framed copy of the sheet music of "Goodnight Irene" bearing the picture of Frank Sinatra!

The authorship is given as "Huddie Ledbetter & John Lomax", the date is not shown but the publisher is Leeds Music Ltd and the price was 1 shilling (5p) which would date it to 1946-52, as that was the price of a single sheet of music at that time.

If I every get around to destroying the frame, I'll check the date.
