I rarely brag about a find on EBay, but this is something special. This is sheet music from the ultra-obscure 1951 musical revue that took its title from Matt Weinstock’s “My L.A.” The production — note the name of Larry Gelbart — had a lot of problems and closed after four performances. How this music ended up in the UK is unclear, but its arrival is eagerly anticipated at the Daily Mirror HQ.
Selections also appear on the CD “Sammy Sings Fain Again.”
What a find! What a great talent. I was reminded of his writing ability by his marvelous article that you published about Bob Hope. I never realized that he wrote jokes for Hope. It was a “small world” in those days. It would really be nice of someone did strp up and produce his piece about L.A
Thanks for sharing this important piece of history.
