List of Columbia-Capitol Blues A-Rolls
By Richard Riley

With the help of Matt Jaro, Bart Off, John Motto-Ros, Bob Billings
and Bob Pinsker I have compiled a list of all known recut Columbia
and Capitol Blues A-rolls.  Counting the Jazz Waltz roll, there are
48 rolls known to me at this time.

It is possible that a few rolls I do not have are in collections,
original or recut.  I have info on 49 rolls that are missing or
unknown.  Following is a list:

  Columbia 1549, 1642, 1647, 1651, 1661, 1679, 1697, 1704, 1719,
  1725, 1729, 1741, 1750, 1753, 1759, 1764, 1792, 1801, 1806, 1812,
  1823, 1835, 1843, 1851 and 1855.

  Capitol 1877, 1886, 1894, 1902, 1914, 1924, 1931, 1939, 1945, 1980,
  1996, 2006, 2010, 2036, 2043, 2044, 2051, 2056, 2125, 2286, 2336,
  2372, 2384 and 2402 the last in 1931.

All you A-roll guys, check your collections for the above numbers.
I will soon have a complete listing of all known rolls available with
a short intro and analysis and sorted by roll number, issue date,
title, composer and pianist.  If you would like a copy I will need
your postal mailing address.  Thanks to all.
