"Silver Swan Rag" Recut by Frank Adams
By John Phillips

Hello, MMD.  I was interested to read Marc Sachnoff's posting about
"Silver Swan Rag".  I purchased a recut of this rag from Frank Adams'
Automatic Music Roll Co. about twenty years ago.  As Marc indicates,
it is a very pleasant piece of music -- I have just dug it out and
played it again.

I also, at the time, bought a number of Frank's Recordo recuts.  They
were, and still are, of high quality, cleanly punched on very good
roll paper.  My recollection is that "Silver Swan" cost me about $10,
plus postage to Australia.  Surface mail was still available then,
unlike today, so the transportation costs were not ridiculous.
