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.
