'Walkin the Baby Home'
By George Bogatko

This is an addendum to a previous posting regarding "Walking the Baby
Home."  It is the same as the current posting on my WWW page if you
click on the icon.

Nickelodeon Toe Tappers has been temporarily withdrawn from distribu-
tion while the tape is re-edited to replace certain material with new
material.  This re-editing has been prompted by the receipt of informa-
tion from Nan Bostick informing me that the central motif of "Walking
the Baby Home" is the same as that of a currently copyrighted song by
Mr. Daniels, her great uncle.  The song, "Chlo-e, Song of the Swamp"
has a first copyright date of 1927.

I have decided to remove "Walking the Baby Home" from the tape.  It is
close enough to "Chloe" to be called an arrangement, but I don't want
to be known as merely an arranger.

Having spoken to several people about this, I've come to the conclu-
sion that Ms. Bostick's letter was not adversarial, but rather a kind
warning.  I'm afraid I have over-reacted to Ms. Bostick's letter, and
wish to publicly offer her an apology.  She meant well, and I took it
wrong.  Once again .... open mouth, stick in foot.

 [ It's a great performance, George.  Maybe a show producer will want
 [ to use it for "mood music", and you'll be famous overnight !  :)
