Does anybody have/know of an arrangement of the waltz “Fascination”?
You mean this one?
Yes, they’re out of print now. They were called “Pops for Harp” and they were probably the first pop collections of harp arrangements. I’m not sure of the original publication date (my copy has lost the front matter), but it was long enough ago that they had Peter Max type psychedelic cover designs.
This was way before any of the harp companies got into the publishing business. Her daughter, Laura Lou Roth, has talked about having them reprinted but I don’t think anything ever came of it.
They were nice arrangements, showy but not terribly difficult. Good working gig stuff.
I think that’s correct, but I’m not totally sure. It seems to me that there may be a couple more, but my copies no longer exist as separate entities, since the comb binding gave up many years ago. If I can track down all the pages I’ll let you know.
I think the date for the first book must be 1970 or later, since ‘Day by Day’ is in there because ‘Godspell’ made it popular at the time, and there’s a reference to the play on the page, if I remember correctly.
