He's Been A Long Time Gorn!

Album: Music Hall Classics (1904)
  • This R.P. Weston solo composition was published by Francis, Day & Hunter of London in 1904, and according to comedian and theatre historian Roy Hudd in the Spring 1985 issue of Theatrephile, it has a curious genesis. One of Weston's early collaborators went out to buy some manuscript paper, met some friends, one thing led to another, and he didn't reappear in the office for three weeks, when he said with a wave "Hello Bob, I've got the paper!" >>
