CD: Skinner Residence Player Organ at Elm Court
By Karl Ellison

Dear MMD,  Please take note of the recently released recording
"1929 Skinner Organ -- Opus 783 Residence Player Organ at Elm
Court, Butler Pennsylvania", now available from JAV Recordings
(www.GreatOrganCDs.com) or 1-888-572-2242.

This 2-CD set contains a voluminous 63-page insert (with complete
articles, e.g. "The Player Organ And It's Technology", and "Skinner
Organ Rolls" by Nelson Barden, etc.), and is alone worth the purchase
price.  The 975 pipe instrument has been fully restored by the
Thomson-Allen Company.

The rolls played are classical and are interesting to hear.  Featured
rolls are Skinner #: 506, 574, 762, 518, 602, 524, 508, 543, 577, 715,
536, 590, 517, 595, 603 and 793.  There are also as many pieces played
live by organists Chas. Heinroth and Ken Cowan.

I highly recommend this CD set to anyone interested in roll-operating
instruments.
