European Band Organ Recordings
By Matthew Caulfield

There are six interesting cassette recordings of European band organs
listed currently on eBay.  Search "fairground organ" to bring them up.

One is of a Richter, mistakenly called a "Gebruder" because of the
cassette's wording "Gebrueder Richter."  (Funny how that term sticks
out and leads Americans to ignore the real name of any company that
uses Gebrueder in its name.)

Another is of a Wrede.  Anyway, look for yourself, if interested.

Matthew Caulfield

 [ Bruder means "brother", and Gebrueder is the plural: "brothers".
 [ Confusion arises if an organ is simply called a Bruder, because
 [ sons and grandsons and cousins owned these competing firms:
 [  Ignatz Bruder (Ignacius Bruder, founder of the Waldkirch industry)
 [  Gebrueder Bruder ("The Brother Brothers", the sons of Ignatz)
 [  Wilhelm Bruder Soehne (the sons of Ignatz' son, Wilhelm)
 [  Ignaz Bruder Sohne (the sons of Ignatz' son, Ignatz II)
 [  Alfred Bruder (great-grandson of Ignatz)
 [ Geneology from "Waldkircher Dreh- und Jahrmarkt-Orgeln", by Herbert
 [ Juettemann, Waldkircher Verlag, 1993.
