I wonder if any band organ owner has Wurlitzer Style 150 roll number
13132? In my style 150 roll catalog, tune 10 of roll 13132 is listed
as "Across The Hot Sands," which is how the original Wurlitzer label
reads. Ref. http://wurlitzer-rolls.com/150catalog/150index.html
But Farmingdale, New York, band organ fan Gary Bovee, who knows a lot
about those rolls, says that tune 10 is actually "I'll Take Her Back
If She Wants To Come Back."
"Across The Hot Sands" is a 1921 march-two step by George L. Cobb.
"I'll Take Her Back If She Wants To Come Back" is a 1924 fox trot by
James V. Monaco. Roll 13132 was issued in 1925.
I've checked with Doug Hershberger, who manages the Wurlitzer
perforator and roll masters at the Herschell Carrousel Factory Museum
in North Tonawanda, New York, and he doesn't have the roll or its
If you have roll 13132 or a recording of it, can you tell me which is
the correct title for tune 10?
