Just a note that I've updated my website tonight with 110 new scans. Some great stuff here, including rags, blues, handplayed, arranged, hot foxtrots, and some nice classical and reproducing stuff too. Too many great ones to list. Don't overlook two of Laurel Pardey's best rolls, a lush arrangement of 'Two Cigarettes In The Dark' and a delightful romp through 'Who's Afraid of the Big Bad Wolf?'. Also an ultra-rare roll of Henry Lange's 'Chopiano', recorded by prominent 1920's Australian barrister and talented amateur pianist Maurice E. Price, the complete 3-roll Welte Licensee set of 'Moonlight Sonata' played by Paderewski, Roy Bargy doing 'Railroad Blues', and much more.
Also, by special arrangement I'm proud to present the Gordon Raspin rollscan collection. Gordon hails from Hobart, Tasmania and has scanned over a thousand rolls using a custom modified flatbed scanning arrangement. Gordon's scans can be downloaded in bulk in a single zip file and I hope to add them to my main database tune-by-tune as time permits. Currently you can access the download link from the 'SITE NEWS/ADDITIONS' section of my main page, and my newest scans, as always, are listed at the bottom of the page and in the site's main search database.
