Pre-rock memories


"Dance to the Music,'' by JUDY ROBINSON-COX, at Alperts Fine Art, Andover, Mass. The increased interest in pre-rock, Great American Songbook music shown by older Baby Boomers these days, and even by the likes of  the pre-Baby Boomer Bob Dylan, shows how as you head into old age, memories from childhood tend to come flowing back.

The music referred to here is a song from "South Pacific,'' the  Rodgers & Hammerstein musical that premiered in 1949 and was based on James  A. Michener's book Tales of the South Pacific, which stemmed from his Navy service in World War II.
