John Philip Sousa Music on 15.5" Regina Discs
By Knowles Little

Hello MMDers,  I am assembling a complete collection of the music of
John Philip Sousa that was arranged on 15.5-inch Regina / Polyphon
music box discs.  I now have 14 of the 15 discs that I know of.  The
missing one is 1580, El Capitan Waltzes.  If anyone has the disc
I would like to either buy it, or photograph it to complete my project.

Of possible interest to you, below is what I believe to be the complete
list.  If there are others, I would like to know this, too.

1212 Washington Post, The - March - Sousa
1217 High School Cadets, The - March - Sousa
1257 Liberty Bell, The - March - Sousa
1266 Beau Ideal, The - March - Sousa
1293 Directorate, The - March - Sousa
1305 Manhattan Beach March - Sousa
1434 King Cotton - March - Sousa
1469 El Capitan - March - Sousa
1521 Stars And Stripes Forever, The - March - Sousa
1580 El Capitan: Waltzes - Sousa
1582 Bride Elect, The - March - Sousa
1673 Charlatan, The - March - Sousa
1719 Hands Across The Sea - March - Sousa
1787 Man Behind The Gun, The - March - Sousa
1867 Invincible Eagle, The - March - Sousa

Please contact me if you have the disc or know of Sousa arrangements
for 15.5-inch Regina other than the ones above.
