Seek 15.5" Regina 1550 "Chilkoot March Two-Step"
By Bill Wineburgh

I have a request for a recording of "Chilkoot Two-Step", Regina
15-1/2-inch disc No. 1550, from a lady who is putting together an
exhibition for the National Park Service in Alaska.  Can anyone
who has a copy of this title either record it (video, like YouTube,
or audio only) or loan me the disc to be recorded for her.

Thanks in advance.

 [ Chilkoot March Two-Step (C) 1897 by Alfred Roncovieri, Director
 [ American Concert Band, San Francisco, Calif.  Band arr. publ. by
 [ Sherman, Clay & Co., San Francisco, Calif.
 [ At --
 [ San Francisco Call, Volume 77, Number 88, 8 March 1895
 [   The fact that San Francisco has to-day a band of 100 pieces,
 [   which is in size second to but one that ever visited or rendered
 [   any numbers in this country, is purely the result of the local
 [   enthusiasm.  When criticisms were being made to the effect that
 [   San Francisco was "jay" in all its particulars and in all its
 [   habits, Mr. Roncovieri said: "I will bet any reasonable amount
 [   of money that I can pick up in San Francisco a band of 100 pieces
 [   -- equal in size to that of the famous Gilmore band -- and produce
 [   in this city music such as has not been heard in this city, and
 [   prove by the production that it is not in any sense a "jay" town.
 [   If it was "jay" at all it would certainly be "jay" in music."
 [ At 
 [   [early 1884] A "jay town", it may be explained to the unversed
 [   reader, is a community where unappreciative ignorance prevails,
 [   and where business is consequently pretty bad.
