As with the "Palladium Rag", the title of this piece reminds us of when Joe Morley led a troupe of 34 banjoists in the "London Palladium Minstrel Show" when the minstrel show was revived in the London Palladium in 1912, eight years after the closing of St James's Hall in 1904. During this time which harkened to the halcyon days when Morley played with the Moore and Burgess (former Christy) Minstrels, Joe featured as a soloist and dazzled audiences with some of his most impressive showpieces. The show eventually disbanded and Morley entertained the troops during the war in Alec Huber's concert party, "The Jesters". You can hear the piece played by the master himself (recorded after the war, as a duet with Olly Oakley) here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SIi4W-kZmaM
