FS: New Wurlitzer 150 Roll "Beach Boys & Elvis"
By Brian Wenzinger

Hello Everyone,  I realize it's late in the band organ season, but
I'm re-offering a newly arranged Wurlitzer 150 style band organ roll,
roll 14525, the "BBE" roll offered earlier this summer.  This roll is
a compilation of Beatles, Beach Boys, and Elvis songs (BBE), arranged
by Rich Olsen and recut by Play-Rite.

This roll was arranged for me with no real thought to selling copies,
but while Play-Rite had their perforator available, I thought I'd offer
a few copies for sale.  The BBE roll will have limited availability
since I don't plan to continue in the roll selling business.  I had
46 copies made, I have 37 left to sell and that'll be it.

I nudged Rich to push the envelope a bit to give my organ a workout
resulting in ten great arrangements.  The tune list is below and I've
provided some links to YouTube with three of the tunes playing live on
my Wurlitzer 146A (excuse my lack of video skills and the less than
perfect organ tuning).  A few folks have the roll and the feedback has
been very good.

All I can say (or warn) is this roll will work your organ pretty hard.
These arrangements have lots of notes and there are many sustained
chords.  This roll may be too much in spots for some organs, so if you
purchase the roll and have any problems I'll be happy to refund your
money in full within 30 days if the roll comes back to me in resaleable
"used" condition.   So far, there have been no takers on refunds.

I'm offering the BBE roll for $60.00, which includes USPS Media Mail
shipping in the continental USA.  I have all the rolls sitting in my
home so they are ready to ship today.  You can contact me at my email
address and phone number below.  (I'm in the MBSI and COAA directories
as well.)

Wurlitzer Style 150
Roll No. 14525 - The BBE Roll
 1. Surfin' Safari
 2. Love Me Tender (Waltz Tempo)
 3. I Wanna Hold Your Hand
 4. Surfin' USA
 5. Hound Dog
 6. Here Comes The Sun
 7. Surfer Girl (Not a Waltz tempo but close)
 8. A Hard Days Night
 9. When I'm Sixty Four (Waltz Tempo)
10. Viva Las Vegas

A video is worth a thousand words, so sample these songs from the
roll.  I'm sure the BBE roll will sound much better live on your organ!

An extra thanks to those organ owners who convinced me to bring the
BBE roll back to the market after testing and critiquing it over the
past few weeks.
