Ampico Piano Rolls Recut by Larry Givens
By Larry Norman

Wow -- what a fantastic article on Larry Givens and the Ampico rolls
recut by him!  Thank you, Alan, very much.  I enjoyed it as I got into
the Ampico piano and rolls in the 1980s and I have quite a few Larry
Givens rolls and always wondered about this subject.  I bet everyone
would be delighted if you would write a few more articles about Larry
Givens and also about [his business partner] John Gourley, too!

Would it be possible for you to scan all of those roll catalogs and
put them up on the MMD?  I have never seen one and would love to have
a chance to look them over.  Thanks in advance.  I bet all the other
roll collectors would love to see them as well.  Also Terry Smythe has
a web site dedicated to roll catalogs and I bet he would also love to
post them on his web site.

Again, thanks for the article and please write the next chapter.  I and
all the other Ampico, Duo-Art and Welte roll collectors would love more


Larry Norman - from the blue ridge mountains of Virginia.  A few snow
flurries, but no big storms as yet and even a few days up in the 70s.
