Seek "Honey Moon March" as 88-Note Piano Roll
By Andrew Barrett

I have been listening to a great CD with a Welte Wotan and three other
orchestrions on it.  One of the tunes it played was "Honey Moon March"
from 1894.  (Note: I am not talking about "Honey Moon RAG" by James
Scott.)  I don't know who composed this tune but it was a great
arrangement and the Welte sounded just like a band organ (but a little
less harsh or loud), since it had no piano and has bells and brass

After playing the tune at least 5 times over again on my CD player,
I took a liking to the tune and wondered if and where I could purchase
an 88-note piano roll of it to play on the player piano when it's
finished.  Any help would be appreciated.  By the way, were orchestra
bells original to the Welte Wotan, or were they an add-on?  Also, where
could they fit them into the case?  (It must be a tight fit!)

Happy New Year (early)
