BELL BOTTOM TROUSERS Sheet Music Santly-Joy Copyright 1944
Sheet music published in 1944 by Santly-Joy of New York entitled, BELL BOTTOM TROUSERS.
Words and music written by Moe Jaffe, the song BELL BOTTOM TROUSERS enjoyed great popularity during World War II and is said to be one of Jaffe's, who composed more than 250 songs, best known works.
Tony Pastor and His Orchestra released its recording of the song in April 1945, and within a few short weeks, the recording reached Billboard magazine's best seller chart lasting 15 weeks on the chart. Many popular big band artists recorded the song, including Guy Lombardo.
The sheet music measures 9" x 11 ¾” and is in good condition for vintage paper other than discoloration and browning, with no rips or tears. The name of a previous owner is written in ink on the front. Would look great framed!
BELL BOTTOM TROUSERS is a great World War II song. Like many big band music recordings at the time, the song about a young girl and a sailor in love but separated by war, reached the battlefront and was a metaphor for the way of life that American soldiers were fighting to preserve.
