This color, 8X10, publicity photograph has only light wear in the bottom margin. Near fine. Dee Mullins was an unusual country singer in Nashville in the 1960's and 70's.

Handy Brothers Music Co., Sales Promo for Minstrels

Publisher: New York, Handy Brothers Music Co.: ca. 1930

Seller ID: 16055

Condition: Very Good


Small (3 1/2 X 6) sales promo from Handy Brothers Music Co. This sheet is of interest bacuse it is aimed at minstrel shows and features aneclectic mix of music, including the spiritual (Oh Death Where Is Thy Sting), Hokum (Who Broke the Lock on the Hen House Door), and Rock (Shake, Rattle and Roll). If Shake, Rattle and Roll is the famous rock song, then this Promo has to date from the 1950's. However, I suspect that this is a different song that was more connected to minstrelsy and that the Promo is from the 1930's. This is still an odd grouping of songs, connected to the Handy publishing hou... View more info
