Thread Name: Lyr/Tune Req: Yiddle on Your Fiddle Play...Ragtime
Subject: RE: music hall songs - Yiddle on The Fiddle
I bought some 78s on Saturday, one of which was "Solomon's trombone" (no composer/writer) sung by Harry Hargreaves, "Comedian". It sounds so much like "Yiddle on the fiddle" it'sa hard to believe it's not connected; but whether it's by Irving Berlin or just a parody, I don't know. Any ideas?
