"On Patrol in No Man's Land" is by three of the eary 20th century's most important composer/performers, James Reese Europe, Noble Sissile and Eubie Blake. This music, composed while the three were members of the all African-American 369th U. S. Infantry, Harlem Hell Fighters Band, was most often used as the finale of a show complete with lights and sound effects simulating battle. Even after Europe's untimely death, Sissile and Blake continued to perform this music with Blake using the piano to create the effects. This music is quite uncommon. WorldCat locates only three copies -- one in the library of Congress, one at Brown and one in England. It also has the great association of Europe, Sissile and Blake along with the Hell Fighters all of whom are pictured on the front in a panoramic photo with a further close-up of Europe. This copy has generally light wear but does have some stains and light scrapes on the front, which blend in with the sepia tone of the photographs, but are certainly there. Please see scans. ; Sepia-Toned Phots of Europe and Hell Fighter Band; 4to 11" - 13" tall; 4 pages
