Seek Wurlitzer Style 150 Roll 13132
By Matthew Caulfield

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

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

If you have roll 13132 or a recording of it, can you tell me which is
