The Pop Corn Man is an amusing rag and obvious fun-piece. It is in AABB-ACCA form with a 4-bar introduction which also serves as the coda. The A-strain is of a surprising, at least on first hearing/performing it has to be said, 18 bars while the other strains are of the more usual 16-bars duration. The A-strain has a pair of bars imitating a steamboat whistle as also in the C-strain whereby the ante is upped somewhat by the 2nd and 3rd tenors, the corny pop people in this number, "popping" on the 2nd and 4th quavers. The 1st tenor will delight having all the melodies - just the job for flying fingers and capacious lungs!
The Pop Corn Man was published by Jerome H. Remick & Co., New York & Detroit, USA.
A tempo of 80 crotchets/min. is suggested.
There is also a tenor solo version of this item.
