Seek Piano Rolls by "Cow Cow" Davenport
By Larry Schuette

Some years ago, I remember QRS offering a reward for "Cow Cow Blues"
played by Charles "Cow Cow" Davenport.  YouTube has a bunch of his
music, including "Cow Cow Blues" coming off a record that Davenport
made in 1928 for Brunswick.

Just wondering if there is a piano roll or re-cut out there of "Cow Cow
Blues" played by Cow Cow, or any other roll for sale that is played by
Cow Cow Davenport.
