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.
