Cremona M-725
Cremona Roll M-725 Artists
by Bob Billings (070728 MMDigest)

David Ramey is offering copies of M-725 for sale.  It's a very nice blues roll, hand-played, and one every M-machine owner should consider owning.  Can anyone identify the artist(s)?

I stripped off everything but the notes in the attached files and just for fun I added A-roll instrumentation to the first two tunes.  The titles are below.
