I have an O-roll rollography in the makings -- a draft of which can
be found at http://www.rickcrandall.net/article80.php with an update
coming in the next week or so as more collectors cooperate by sending
me photos of their labels.
So far approximately 30 collectors have contributed along with the
files from Frank Himpsl, Paul Gottschalk and recut roll info from John
Malone (Play-Rite) and the assistance of Don Teach and Art Reblitz.
The update has about 630 O-rolls catalogued (over 5000 tunes from QRS,
US Music, Columbia, Capitol and Clark) out of an estimated 1250 rolls
If you have O-rolls with incomplete tune lists or just a roll number
or just one or two tunes identified, let me know I can probably
reconstruct your tune into.
The complete rollography of all 933 Phonoliszt-Violina rolls ever
produced by Hupfeld can be found at
And the Encore Banjo Rollography of all 261 rolls originally produced
for the Encore (1800 tunes) can be found at
with information from original Automatic Music Co. books and records.
