I remember seeing the show, though I never played it. The music as best as
I can recall it, is a lot ricky-ticky stuff, not very far displaced from
Shep Fields and His Rippling Rhythm.

I am pleased to have brought my substantial and magnificent musicological
talents so as to shed light on Shep Fields and His Rippling Rhythm, the band
responsible for the cymbal smash (not crash -- that's something else). And
for future use, I know all four choruses of Saint James Infirmary, as well
as 135 verses of Mademoiselle from Armentiere, 134 of which are xxx rated.

If there is anything else I can do for you, please hesitate to ask..

Dan Leeson
