Paul Eakins Collection in New "Golden Age" Book
By Art Reblitz

Dear Group:  My new book "The Golden Age of Automatic Musical Instru-
ments" includes a chapter devoted to the pioneer collectors.  The
studio picture of Paul Eakins, with his Mills DeLuxe Violano-Virtuoso
and original Seeburg H appearing on Gary Moore's "I've Got a Secret",
appears in this chapter.  I obtained permission from CBS-TV licensing
in June 1998 to reprint the picture in the book.

The Eakins Special orchestrion does not appear in this picture.
Rather, the orchestrion is the Seeburg H that is currently in the
Roenigk Collection.
