  • Is there a scan or source available so that this text can be validated? Thanks, Mattisse (talk) 12:01, 25 October 2010 (UTC)Reply[reply]
    • I am unaware of one. The book I used is available in many libraries. I can send you photos of the pages if you cannot locate it.--Longfellow (talk) 13:55, 25 October 2010 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Something published in 1984 is unlikely to be available, however, the editor's sources for that edition could be obtained very easily. I'd be willing to set it up, and show where to look for a scan, we could eliminate any errors in later editions and it is more convenient than users sending each other images; which is still no use to the reader. cygnis insignis 14:29, 25 October 2010 (UTC)Reply[reply]
  • It is available in many libraries. However, if there are better sources available then of course they should be used.--Longfellow (talk) 14:47, 25 October 2010 (UTC)Reply[reply]
The sources they give should be a good start, you might browse through the openlibrary site - it usually sorts results by "read online". I'm happy to set up whatever you find. Does the text have underscores, btw? cygnis insignis 14:59, 25 October 2010 (UTC)Reply[reply]
They reproduce original sheet music held in various collections, mainly The Raymond Mander & Joe Mitchenson Theatre Collection. This collection is not online.--Longfellow (talk) 21:17, 25 October 2010 (UTC)Reply[reply]
