Coliseum (1902)...Edward A. Marshall

This is a 6/8 march that suits the banjo well with a nice bass solo that repeats in the final section an octave higher. I could find no information on the composer or any other of his compositions. The score and midi are in the library...Steve.…See More

"The trio sounds like a rip off of the trio in Botsford's 'Grizzley Bear', maybe Weidt hinted that he was 'lifting' a few things when he called this 'Hodge Podge' ?"

Joel Hooks replied to Joel Hooks's discussion Clifford Essex Spanish Guitar Footstool Knockoff

Rob MacKillop replied to Joel Hooks's discussion Clifford Essex Spanish Guitar Footstool Knockoff
