In The Toyshop
This tune is great fun in a ragtime set.
The tune is reported to come from a recording of a barrel organ and was introduced to the Ship session at Sidmouth in the 70s by Roger Edwards and Martin Ellison.
There are rumours of a third part. Does anyone know it?
It was featured by Flowers & Folics in the 70s and is of the same ilk as Woodland Revels, Bill Bailey, See Me Dance The Polka, Mickey Mouses Son And Daughter etc.
Strangely enough, we played "In the Toyshop" (along with Mickey’s Son and Daughter, which I’ve just posted) at a local session only last week!
