Re: [aloha-donblanding] Re: Blanding musical program
Congratulations on finding the Hula Moon program, and the Tropic
Topics program for that matter.
Now all you need is the one for Dream Girls!
This past 4 months has been especially difficult for me and I have
not kept up with transcribing the material from the Star-Bulletin.
Earlier this week I finished reading both 1925 and 1953; the next
batch will be from 1954.
Among the piles of S-B stuff I have a number of articles about Hula
Moon, Tropic Topics and Dream Girls. I believe the articles contain
extensive lists of cast members and program details.
I will try to get started again on transcription, and organizing the
material into easily accessible binders and a database. My plans
were sidetracked by the illness and death of a close friend and now I
have some 30 boxes of collectibles from her estate to inventory and
sell. My living room looks like a warehouse, and just now I'm not
even sure where my Blanding files are!
But I will try.
Here are the songs from the two musical programs that I have.
Blanding collaborated with R. Alex Anderson on both shows.
TROPIC TOPICS REVUE, June 3-4, 1925:
Deep Sea Fox Trot - music by Anderson
Spinster's Son - lyrics by Blanding, music by Anderson
Girl of My Dreams - lyrics by Blanding, music by Anderson
Aloha Land - words and music by Anderson
I'm a Derelict - words and music by Anderson
Artist Song Girls - words and music by Anderson
Song of Types - lyrics by Blanding, music by Anderson
Golden Shower Girl - lyrics by Blanding, music by Anderson
HULA MOON, May 2-4, 1928
Overture - music by Anderson
Hula Moon - lyrics by Blanding, music by Anderson
Haole Hula - music & lyrics by Anderson
The Rocking Chair Fleet - lyrics by Blanding
Why Kihi-kihis Swim Home - lyrics by Blanding, music by Anderson
Medley from Tropic Topics - music & lyrics by Anderson
Song of the Lei - lyrics by Blanding, music by Anderson
Good-Bye, Honolulu - music & lyrics by Anderson
Choosing Her Twosing - lyrics by Blanding, music by Anderson
My Flower of the Rainbow - lyrics by Blanding, music by Anderson
So Anderson did indeed completely write Haole Hula, as history
states. I wonder what happened to some of the other songs through the
passing of time.
- Thanks Keith
I was wondering for a long time about Haole Hula. It was too much like
something blanding would write.
