GUEST,John Hill Origin: Bluebell Polka (Jimmy Shand?) (41) RE: Bluebell Polka 19 Apr 01

It make be that a new copyright was taken out for Shand's 1953 arrangement. There was certainly a Frank Stanley writing tunes in the mid to late 1800's in the US. Whether its the same fellow I don't know. I'm curious as to whether the tune by G.W. Lovejoy published in 1873 in Milwaukee is the same one. If it is it predates all the rest. Have you looked at the link to the Little Pet Polka yet. I think you will agree that its not the same.
