Seek "My Baby Knows How" for Capitol A-Roll 2052
By Mark Forer

This nice Capitol A-Roll 2052 is in the process of being recut by John
Motto-Ros.  Problem is, a lot of the first tune (My Baby Knows How) is

John Motto-Ros, Matt Jaro and myself would like to know if someone out
there in MMD-Land has this roll (or any Capitol "A" roll of the same
era) that has this tune on it for recutting.

The window is closing on this run, and this is one swell roll that must
be preserved.  If you would like to loan John the roll or a different
roll with the missing tune, please email him as soon as possible at
John Motto-Ros <> [delete ".geentroep"
to reply].
