Dave Haibach asked in yesterday's MMD whose Wurlitzer 165 band organ
was recorded by Klavier Records. I believe that Robbie was right about
the later  recording being a different organ.
"Catch The Brass Ring," Volume 1, was originally released in 1975 as a
vinyl LP record. I believe Volume 2 was dated 1978, but I assume that
these were recorded at the same time. I have LP Volume 1, which shows,
in black-and-white, organ #3124 "from the collection of David Q.
Bowers" (sic) -- the 165 now at Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk, Santa Cruz,
California (since 2007). This photo is likely shown on Volume 2 as
According to retired music roll mogul Ray Siou, the Wurlitzer 165 band
organ actually used for these recordings [Vol. 1 and Vol. 2] was #3358,
which was then owned by John Malone, of Play-Rite Music Rolls, Turlock,
California. The organ was sold to Arnold Chase in Connecticut in 2006
(and is shown in the July, 2012, COAA "Carousel Organ").
"Catch Another Brass Ring" was released as a cassette and CD in 1990.
Again according to Ray Siou, the organ recorded was Wurlitzer 165 #3378,
then and now in a private collection in Wisconsin (the "prominent
Midwest collection" mentioned in the liner notes).
Incidentally, I agree with Dave that these are all very fine recordings.
