Frosty The Snowman
By Craig Brougher

George Bogatko as usual, has outdone himself again. This is, without a doubt, the most melodious, captivating, rythmic "Gotta-Get-One" version of the snowman song that I have ever heard. It is so original, it's like a transformation from black and white to color--cinemascope 3D (snowy picture and all, of course). The happiest song I ever heard, frankly. It just bubbles with fun. Well, this'll whet your appetite. It's hopefully coming out also on an orchestrion roll of the "O" format sometime, and really demonstrates what a wonderful invention the "O" roll orchestrion is. Live music on live instruments. The drum parts alone are masterful. He plans to issue this, along with a number of other totally rearranged familiar Christmas tunes in CD format and intends to use my own orchestrion. So keep tuned. There isn't anybody who won't love this! You may like it even better than a live band. Talk about potential! After the CD, you'll want an orchestrion.
