Ma Tiger Lily

Album: Aunt Hannah (1900)
  • This coon song from the 1900 musical comedy Aunt Hannah was written by Clay M. Greene and composed by A.B. Sloane. As might be expected, extant contemporaneous recordings are of poor quality; they include one by Arthur Collins and another by The Peerless Orchestra.

    Unlike the show, which closed after a mere 21 performances, "My Tiger Lily" has stood the test of time. >>
