Missing Ampico Rolls Recut by Larry Givens
By Mike Walter

Hi all,  Michael Swanson was inquiring about some specific rolls
issued by Larry Givens but didn't have much luck finding additional
information.  I have a bit more info for him.

The Scarlatti Sonata in A Minor (NI-5) has a (1971) date below the
John Thomas Brooker name.  That may help in getting additional
information.  ( does list a few men named John Thomas
Brooker but I am unable to find additional info about them.  Someone
with current membership may have better luck!)

The roll of Ravel pieces played by Dimitri Tiomkin was also released by
Klavier Music Rolls and was given the number 40003.

I have copies of both rolls and the originals (if they're still around)
should both be scanned.  I don't know if the Powells are still amongst
the living, but if they are, they may be some people to contact since
Richard didn't get the original master rolls when he bought them out.

Best wishes,
Mike Walter
