Looking for Lyrics to Old Music?
By David Haibach

I searched the MMD archives, and I do not believe this was ever
mentioned before; so I am passing this along.

For those of you looking to identify old tunes, or maybe find the
lyrics to some of those old non-word rolls, try the Parlor Songs

This is one fantastic site, where you can not only search the music,
but also see the sheet music for the old tunes, hear them on your
computer, and read a lot of information about the composers, publi-
cists, and their lives.  Parlor Songs has been around since 1997;
yet it has taken me this long to discover it.

  [Rick Reublin and his partner, Bob Maine, do an amazing amount of
  [background research for each song they post in their themed monthly
  [installments.  But a notice posted on the site says that the May
  [2007 issue will be the last installment for a while, giving them
  [time to revamp.
