“When It’s Lamp Lightin’ Time In The Valley” a popular song with words and music by Joe Lyons, Sam C. Hart and The Vagabonds. The cover has an Art Deco illustration by Sydney Leff, one of the most famous and most prolific of sheet music illustrators, who depicted the moon-June-spoon romance of the Jazz Age through sheet music illustrations for hundreds of popular songs. Leff leaned heavily on images of swaying palm trees under an inviting moon and flirtatious flappers who hinted at erotic possibility. He once said “I knew where to put the moon and the stars … and made sure the ladies’ gowns were very up-to-date.” Classic vintage music ephemera and collectible, from the heyday of popular music.
