Iola, the song, was an early Johnson contribution to the Indian Music genre prevalent and fashionable in during the ragtime years. He joined such worthies as Kerry Mills and his Redwing (1909) DBE 327, Percy Wenrich's Silver Bell (1910) and Vincent C. Plunkett's Pretty Little Rainbow (1919) just to mention a few. In 1910 he wrote yet another, Silver Star - Song (1911) proving the popularity of this craze. In keeping with the lyrics the song has a pretty tune. This is a very easy piece for recorder players but a few voices, the great bass in particular, have quite some bar counting to do.
Iola was published by Jerome H. Remick & Co., New York & Detroit, USA.
A tempo of 80 crotchets/min. is suggested.
