A mood
Alison Travers had a few years of musical prominence during the 1920s, when various piano and vocal compositions and orchestral suites by her were published. After receiving a good musical education, she went to live in the middle of the Malayan jungle without even a piano. There she wrote down as best she could the melodies which came to her, and on returning to London she had various dances published. It was Leslie Boosey, of the publisher Boosey & Co, who suggested she try ballad-writing. This she did most successfully with ‘A Mood’, whose words were written by Edward J Macdermott, the manager of the Finsbury Park Empire.
