The composer, Billy McComiskey writes the following about the history of this tune:" Lori Anders, a New England piano accordion player, challenged me one night years ago saying, "See, that's why the piano accordion is better than the button box ... you can't play in Eb or Bb."
In response, Billy wrote The Flowers of Brooklyn in Eb and The Palm Tree in Bb.
The tune has been recorded by Laoise Kelly and by Jerry Holland. The transcription comes from Jerry's book, The Second Collection
