Identity of QRS 100465 played by Max Kortlander
By Jules Shaffer

Hi, folks.  I downloaded the MIDI file of Bob Pinsker's QRS 100465
"mystery" roll [040126 MMDigest], and while enjoying listening to
it (it's an excellent arrangement!) it occurred to me that I had
heard that song somewhere before.  Took me a while and some
head-scratching to recall exactly where I had heard it and what
the song is, but eventually I was successful.

I have it on a recording of Bill Black's Wurlitzer 125 band organ,
and the title of the song is "She Is The Sunshine Of Virginia."
It's from about 1916.
