Gay 90's Village "Big Top Carousel Band Organ"
By Matthew Caulfield

Does anyone know what organ is playing on the 1960's LP record
recorded at Paul Eakins' Gay 90's Village, Sikeston MO, and titled
"Big Top Carousel Band Organ"?

I have, or had, a copy of the record, but can't lay my hands on much of
what I had, since packing and moving north.  There is a posting on eBay
for the record and, from the list of tunes, I can't tell where the
music comes from.  And I'm always alert for leads to lost music rolls!

Years ago I thought Paul Torin owned a lost music roll, judging from
two tune titles on a recording of his band organ, "The General."  But
no, Paul (or the record company) had simply mis-identified two of the
tunes on the roll.
