The Songs of Cole and Johnson Brothers by : Bob Cole : James Weldon Johnson : John Rosamond Johnson
“Late in his life; composer J. Rosamond Johnson (Lift Ev'ry Voice and Sing) submitted to his longtime publisher; E.B. Marks; a list of songs that would comprise a volume of his best early popular songs written with his pre-1910 partner Bob Cole and his brother; James Weldon Johnson (Autobiography of an Ex-Colored Man). That list was never put into print...until now. Featuring an introductionby Dr. Thomas Riis (Just Before Jazz) and several rare photos; this new compilation is the latest legacy offering from the Marks archive; which contains a rich heritage of turn-of-the-century African-American; and thus distinctly American; pre-jazz-era popular song.”
