John Farrell's New Nickelodeon A-roll
By Bob Billings

John Farrell is pleased to announce the release of his next A-roll,
A-5.  If you liked his earlier rolls you won't be disappointed with
this one.  The tune list of A-5 is

1. Kansas City Kitty --  John's rearrangement of Fred Seibert's hottest
piano roll.

2. Black Bottom Stomp -- Jelly Roll Morton's famous tune given the
Farrell treatment.

3. Goin' About -- transcribed from Fats Waller's recording.

4. New Orleans Stomp -- a transcription of Don Ewell's recording
of this King Oliver tune.

5. Copenhagen -- a transcription of Joe "Fingers" Carr's recording.

6. Freshman Hop -- John's snappy arrangement of an attractive
little-known hot Jack Pettis number.

7. Never Swat a Fly -- adaptation of one of Vee Lawnhurst's most
inventive Welte rolls.

8. Carolina Shout -- one of James P. Johnson's most famous pieces
arranged by John.

9. Rattlesnake Rag -- John's transcription of another Joe "Fingers"
Carr recording.
