Hi all, I need some assistance in finding someone who has an original
copy of Ampico roll no. 214681, "Mine", by George Gershwin, played by
Rickenbach & Carroll. I am looking to find out the lyrics between
Refrain #1 and Refrain #2.
I have a recut copy of the roll, but, alas, the original sheet music
for "Let 'Em Eat Cake", from which the song was taken, does not include
these elusive lyrics. The only other thing that comes to mind is that
Ampico sometimes inserted an "interlude" on occasion, but this section
sounds too melodical for that. Thanks for your assistance!
[ It sounds to me like a proper verse. Maybe it was cut before
[ the show opened so it wasn't published in the sheet music.
