That's the ticket! As nice and clear as the "Home, Sweet Home" side was, it wasn't something I would want to attempt.

"Toronto Jig"...different story altogether! Very neat piece, well played.

Geez, I hope we have a copy of the sheet music...

We do! I shall be generating tab tonight!

Composed by Sir Arthur Sullivan

Greetings from Toronto. Yes, very crisp and clearly not Sullivan's Toronto Jig.

I have found Zonophone mis-titled their recordings from time to time. Check the site's other two Oakley recordings, of TJ. Both properly match performance to title. Still in doubt? Check the sheet music too.

This is Poppies and Wheat by Geo H. Hucke.

The Arthur Sullivan of Toronto Jig is not the same as Arthur Sullivan of Gilbert and Sullivan.

Well! I guess I'll download Poppies And Wheat...
Thanks y'all!

This is getting pretty funny as well as compli-ma-cated.  Next someone will tell us that the Toronto in the title is not the one in Canada. It's in Bolivia. Or Albania. Or Laos.

"Toronto Jig" is the only published piece from the Gilbert and Sullivan operetta "Thespis". The work was a burlesque and most burlesque town they could think of was Toronto, known for its bawdy and unapologetically brusque 'in your face' nature, as it is today...frontier town that it is, tucked deep in the wilds of Canada.

Arthur Sullivan published many, many works under his 'nom de plume', "Arthur Sullivan", typically used for his works written for banjo and didgeridoo (often in duet).

I could go on...but the rest is so well known that it is hardly mentionable...*

*Yes, I'm kidding. Toronto is indeed in Boliva and is a burgeoning metropolis. "Toronto" means "cold and damp" in Bolivian.

It's actually called 'Toronto Dig' (am kidding....) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wJrprK8yz64

This is all just Too Too and Utterly Utter. 

Dammit, I should have signed that nonsense, "B. Gibbs"
