Filmusic Roll Artist Jesse Crawford
By Tom DeLay

Famed theatre organist Jesse Crawford also recorded a half dozen
or so POP rolls for Filmusic.  I have his recordings of "Tripoli,"
"Desert Nights," and "I'm Forever Blowing Bubbles."  Any piano
the latter is played upon had better have very good repetition!
One can easily imagine it being played on a Fotoplayer.

Chauncey Haines continued to be active as a touring theatre organist
well into the 1970s.
