Hang-Over Blues, is a Cobb food-and-drink number preceding its musical antidote namely Water Wagon Blues (1919). Subtitled as a Jazz Fox-Trot, it is characterised by an 18-bar opening strain and the extensive employment of notes inégales. Its form is AABBACC with a 4-bar introduction whereby the AB- and C-strains are written in the major keys of G and C respectively.
An all tenor/bass affair, the bass voices are reminded not to overwhelm the tenors in this recorder sextet.
Hang-Over Blues was published in The Tuneful Yankee by Walter Jacobs, Boston, Massachusetts, USA.
A tempo of 150 crotchets/min. is suggested.
