FS: John Farrell's Latest A-roll Release A-7
By Bob Billings

Another John Farrell A-roll is now ready to go.  A-7 continues the
great music John arranged before he died.  Here is the tune list.

1. Pelican Stomp (A hot Cleo Brown number that will light the place up.)
2. Dogtown Blues  (A good slow blues.)
3. Fats Waller Medley #1  (Tunes from the piano roll:
  1. Hold My Hand
  2. Don't Let It Bother You
  3. There's Honey on the Moon Tonight
  4. Sing An Old Fashioned Song
4. Jingle Bells
  (Not your traditional version.  This sleigh has a supercharged engine!)
5. Ballin' the Jack  (Nice Farrell treatment.)
6. Shake That Thing  (In the Jimmy Blythe style.)
7. Whitewash Man
  (A lively tune from the 'teens that will get your foot tapping.)
8. Fascination
  (Farrell's version of a James P. Johnson tune.  Slower but very nice.)
9. Tack Head Blues
  (A very good medium tempo version, another foot tapper.)

The roll is as long as a standard 10-tune roll.  John let the music
determine how long a tune is, so some of these are longer than the
usual nickelodeon tune.  The price is $75 plus $10 shipping via Media
Mail.  If you need the roll before Christmas we can ship UPS or FedEx
at additional cost.
