      Wake up sleepyheads!

      I was poking around in the catalogue of copyrights and stumbled on the following entry in the musical compositions section:

      CANNIBAL JAZZ
      Words by D. Blanding, music by Leo Friedman [of U.S.]
      Chicago, Ill. North American Music Pub. Co.
      Jan. 15, 1920; 2 c. Feb. 2, 1920; E 472133; Donald Blanding, Rockford, Ill.

      Perhaps not a major discovery, but something more to add to Don's extensive resume.

      I wonder if it was a song which appeared in a musical revue he worked on...perhaps for the Art League of Rockford.

      Leo Friedman was a somewhat famous composer of his day.
