Perlee Organ Books
By Jack M. Conway

Hi group,  I continue to be amazed at the power of the Internet,
the expertise of MMD members, and the willingness to help.  Thank you,
Hans van Oost, Ingmar Krause, Michael Woolf and Robbie Rhodes for the
information that you have provided for the Perlee Organ Books.

Please understand, Ingmar, that it was not my intent to exclude anyone.
That is why I sent the request to MMD.  When I ask for help I seek
inclusion not exclusion.

 [ In reality, I forwarded Jack's request to Hans van Oost, so that
 [ we would have some answers before publishing in MMD.  I'm glad
 [ that the discussion followed, because we all learned a lot!  :)
 [ -- Robbie

As far as the book numbers are concerned, they are mine and not the
manufacturers.  The reason that some of the titles were missing is that
they were titled in English, Spanish, or otherwise were obvious to me
what the tunes were.  If there is interest, here is a list of the other

 1. My Fair Lady Medley book 1
 2. My Fair Lady Medley book 2
 5. Land of Hope and Glory - The British Grenadeers
 7. La Paloma (The Dove)
15. The Young Ones
16. Orgelman (Organman)
17. Blauue Danube Wals (Blue Danube Waltz)
18. Keokeok Wals (Cuckoo Waltz)
21. Colonel Bogey March
22. Daisy Waltz

In looking at song #25 again it might be "Gliick auf. wals."  It has
two dots similar to an umlaut over what could be two ii's, or a u with
an umlaut.  There is also a period after the auf.

I am transferring this information to computer labels and will place
them on the back of the organ books for me and the next owner.

Thanks again to this wonderful group.
