One Response to “Alvah Sulloway Sheet Music and Theater Program Collection”

  1. Judith Blumenthal Says:

    Jack Ellis and Charles Tobias wrote “I Can Get It For You Wholesale” in the twenties. Jack Ellis was my uncle, the lyricist. I Can Get It For You Wholesale was performed at every Ellis family gathering, with my uncles playing mandolin and singing. Over the years they added more lyrics which I only have on a cassette of a family party. I do have a Xeroxed copy of the sheet music taken from the original. It’s great to see the song listed here.
