Signed sheet music for Route 66... published in 1974 and as performed by The Manhattan Transfer. It's proof that the standards really do stand the test of time.
Sheet music signed "Bobby Troup" on page 2. 4 pages, 9x11¾, 1 sheet folded, front and verso. Sheet music for Route 66 for piano, guitar and voice as recorded by The Manhattan Transfer. Words and music by Bobby Troup. ©1946, 1973, assigned to Londontown Music in 1974. Distributed by Hall Leonard Publishing Corporation. Troup (1918-1999, born in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania) was probably best known for writing the hit Route 66, which became a hit for Nat King Cole in the 1940s. A Marine captain during World War II, he was the first white officer to be given command of an all-black unit in Jackson, North Carolina; he improved conditions for his men in what was then the pre-Civil Rights South. Troup was mainly a composer, songwriter and pianist. He released his own albums in the 1950s, but none of these was quite as successful as Route 66, which by then had become a standard. Troup also had numerous movie and TV appearances between 1950 and 1985, including a role as Dr. Joe Early on Emergency! (1972-1979). Lightly toned and creased. Scuffed and dented along spine and edges. Otherwise in fine condition.
