Silberberg was an accompanist with the Victor Talking Machine studios and also accompanied the likes of Vess Osman and Brooks and Denton. I've included a picture of him with Brooks and Denton. I couldn't find a score for this tune and had to work from a transcribed midi.  There is a recording by Olly Oakley in the music archives but my arrangement differs from Oakley's playing as I wrote the arrangement before listening to the recording. It's another barnstormer of a tune and I've set the midi tempo to 'Oakley speed' which I'll admit is a bit too challenging even for my aging fingers! It's well worth a look and listen. The score and midi are in the library..Steve.

Nice work Steve.

The G.L Lansing "English Tuning" arrangement, for solo & 2nd bjo, also in G, was published in the US by M Witmark & Sons in 1902. (found recently in an obscure library collection). 

At Oakley tempo the two banjos started sounding like a dogfight, so playback tempo is reduced a bit (MM =118 vs 124) .

Hi Shawn, thanks for your kind comments, It was interesting to be able to compare my arrangement with that of Lansing's and see that we were more or less following the same thread.....Steve.
