Dale Rose Tune Req: Spanish Fandango (42) RE: Spanish Fandango 24 Jan 01


There are many other good recordings out there ~~ Bill Boyd, Bob Wills, Etta Baker, just to name a few. As for lyrics, I have never heard of such, but that doesn't mean that there aren't any.

In sheet music I turned up five versions, none of which appeared to me to be the original, with 1877 the earliest date given.

One at Levy ~~ as a rondo by B. Carr, published by Carr's Music Store, Baltimore, no date given

American Memory Search (LOC, Duke, Brown) search, turned up four versions, with information I found given below:

for banjo, by John Magez, published by R. H. Rose, Boston, 1877

arranged for guitar, by W. L. Hayden, published by W. L. Hayden, Boston, 1878

J. T. R., published by John Church and Company, Cincinnati, 1882

arranged for the banjo by S. S. Stewart, published by S. S. Stewart, Philadelphia, 1884 (Now what instrument arrangement would you expect by S. S. Stewart?)
