Silberberg inscribed Lumb'rin' Luke to his esteemed friend and collaborator, Mr. Jos. W. Standish.. Luke himself is depicted not particularly flattering as a long-legged, skinny Negro cartoon figure on the cover of the original sheet music This delightful cakewalk itself is in AABBACCB form with a 4-bar introduction and a 12-bar interlude between the C- and B-strains whereby the AABBA- and CCB-strains are in the major keys of F and Bb respectively. A must have composition for ragtime recorder ensembles who love their tenors and basses.
Lumb'rin' Luke was published by M. Witmark and Sons, New York, Chicago, San Francisco, USA.
A tempo of 88 crotchets/min. is suggested.
