Johnson dedicated Fine and Dandy to his friend A. A. Holthaus. The cover of original sheet music shows a chocolate-box dandified young lady with an enormous hairdo and bonnet to match. It is a lovely little two-step written in AABBACCBB form with a 4-bar introduction whereby the AABBA- and CCBB-strains are in the major keys of C and F respectively. Here exactly the same form and keys were used for his Cloud Kisser (1911) - those that enjoyed that piece will certainly enjoy this!
Fine and Dandy was published by Arnett-Delonais Co., Chicago, Illinois, USA.
A tempo of 150 crotchets/min. is suggested.
