Explore the hit songs of the 1930's, 40's and 50's in this noteworthy collection of vintage sheet music. Swing to the cool rhythms of Glenn Miller with "Moonlight Cocktail"; dance to the popular jazz tune "Ballin' the Jack"; sing along with Arthur Godfrey to "A Marshmallow World"; and join the chorus to Al Dexter's hit country tune "Pistol Packin' Mama." Please note that while the music is complete in these items, many of these pieces are in a condition that we generally avoid in other types of ephemera -- e.g. with tears, spine separation, chipping, signatures, etc. However, this is common for sheet music and it is obvious from their condition that these items were "well-loved" and we offer them with as clear a condition summary as possible.
