Capitol "G" Roll G-510 of 1933
By Jeffrey R. Wood

Capitol G-510 may be the very last Capitol "G" roll to have Capitol
arrangements.  I have Capitol A-2443 which has four of the same tunes
and they are all Capitol arrangements.  I also have Capitol G-511 and
the arrangements are by Imperial.  Both my rolls are recuts purchased
about 24 years ago from Ray Siou for $10 each!

 [ Historian Mike Montgomery wrote, "The assets of Capitol Roll &
 [ Record Company were purchased in 1933 by Imperial Industrial Company
 [ (Max Kortlander), and the final issues of Supertone rolls were
 [ produced for Sears by Imperial."  It's possible that the last A-roll
 [ arrangements were completed at Capitol in Chicago but the same songs
 [ in the G-roll arrangements were done later by J.L. Cook at Imperial
 [ in New York.  See the list of Supertone rolls at
