Ben Cotton Jr., Singer's Journal

 

 

 

 

 

Subscribers to Henry de Marsan's Singer's Journal received an new installment of the latest songs each month. Once Ben Cotton Jr. began performing with the American Team, de Marsand gave over a full page of the Journal to print lyrics from some of their best material.  The American Team performed in the UK for several years.  When they returned to the States all four - Burt Wayne, Lovely, Birdue and Ben Jr - died of tuberculosis, presumably contracted in England.
