Misc. Comments

One of the most popular and financially-successful songs ever published. Used by Kern and Hammerstein in their musical, Show Boat (1927).

(4 minutes 54 in the eponymous recording ("After the Ball plus highlights from 'Vaudeville'") made by Joan Morris and William Bolcom for Nonesuch Records and first released on a 1974 LP.)

Published by Schott in 1917 or 1918 in a violin/piano arrangement, "Nach dem Ball: Blumenwalzer für Violine mit Pianoforte", rev. by Hugo Hartmann (see Hofmeister's Monatsbericht (1918), p.4).
