Mister Johnson, Turn Me Loose is delightful song which moralises on the evils of gambling and the consequent fatal results in attempting to recoup losses by thievery. At least the unfortunate gambler could pursue his weakness in heaven! This transcription for recorder quintet, a tenor/bass affair, benefits greatly when accompanied by a vocalist.
Mister Johnson, Turn Me Loose was published by M. Witmark and Sons, New York, Chicago, San Francisco, USA.
A tempo of 80 crotchets/min. is suggested.
