Well , there you have it ! Those are all the Herman Avery wade rolls that I know of as of the present time, no doubt the list will grow in due course !
The catalogue number I have given for MOTOR RIDE , 300242 is the correct one , and not 300342 as given in a previous posting, also I have seen FAVOURITE INTERMEZZO MEDLEY issued in UK in two parts , but I can't recall on which label that was, may have been Meloto. Also if anyone has a SPARE copy of FAMOUS GERMAN MARCHES . or indeed any other March medley arranged by Herman Avery Wade , Please get in touch as I would dearly like to have another copy as my roll of FAMOUS GERMAN MARCHES is missing part at the beginning. Finally , out of interest , I mentioned earlier that a few of Herman Avery Wade's arrangements were issued in 58 note format for Orchestrelle and Aeolian Player organs. AWUNDA , ACORKA , BROADWAY 1912 , VICTOR HERBERT TUNEFUL MEDLEY as the ones known to me. I have a copy of
the Victor Herbert medley myself.
THAT's ALL from NOW !
Good Morning from a Sunny Hampshire .

Hello again. I've just spotted the " deliberate mistake" in my recent posting of Herman Avery Wade rolls !
The catalogue number of ASTUNNER Medley should read 300878 and not 300157 which is the number for AHUMMER.
Interestingly , Aeolian had previously issued an 88 note roll 82054 entitled HUMMER Medley Overture, composed by Meacham, presumably the same man who composed the famous piece AMERICAN PATROL.
Whilst I am the subject of catalogue numbers , I can add the following : MY HULA HULA LOVE Medley Two steo is 98675

Very interesting. That's about 90 titles - I've clearly a lot more collecting scope yet! I've checked the few I do have, though, and find I can add two more titles,...

A-Fizzy 302437 [its label hyphenated and capitalised as shown]

Broadway Fox Trot Medley 301949 [this appears to be additional to the Broadway 1912-1915 series - its first tune is "Mary's Li'l Lamb"]

And numbers for these...

AWINNA 99295
Passing Show 1915 302057

Just an update - I have managed to track down some info on Harry Derry and thought I'd post it here so Google will eventually pick it up. He seems to have been Dr. Henry Bromley Derry, christened 9 Sep 1885 in Stratford-on-Avon, married 27 April 1909 to Gertrude Powell, had a daughter named Aileen Gertrude Joyce Derry on May 11 1910, appears in the 1911 Census as 'Professor of Music', served in WW1 in the King's Own Regiment as the bandmaster listing his civilian occupation as 'organist'. He finished the war as a Sergeant, at some point during his life being awarded the Member of the Royal Victorian Order, and died 4 April 1954 in London.

A web search for "H. Bromley Derry" will reveal he had a veritable alphabet after his name, authored more than one book, served as organist at several distinguished chapels, and also composed music himself. A very accomplished fellow, indeed.
