Don't miss two 'sleepers' - Rock-A-Bye Lullaby Mammy, a foxtrot played by Pauline Gibbs for US in Chicago. There's sometihng about the style that reminds me of some Bargy or mid-1920s QRS Charley Straight rolls - a lovely, shimmering, relaxed feel. The other is a great version of Yes! We Have No Bananas Blues, played by the 18-year-old Harold Hovel for the Vocalstyle company in Cincinnati.
As always, the latest rolls are on the main page of my website, http://www.pianola.co.nz
