Unknown Rags & Ragtime Songs on Early "G" Rolls
by Robbie Rhodes (111112 MMDigest)

John Mottoros is preparing to re-issue two very early Seeburg style "G" 10-tune music rolls which have no labels.  The tunes on G-73 and G-100 are mostly rags and ragtime songs of 1912 and 1913.  Tom Brier and I have identified a few of the tunes:

G73-03 is "Frankie and Johnnie", arranged by the Leighton Bros.,
  (C) 1912 by Tell Taylor, New York
G73-05 is "Red Onion Rag", by Abe Olman, 1912
G73-06 is "Rag, Baby Mine", by George Botsford, 1913
G73-10 is "Down Home Rag", by Wilbur Sweatman, 1911 & 1913
G100-01 is "Flower Garden Ball" by Jean Schwartz, 1913

If you recognize a tune please send an email to MMDigest <> and to John Mottoros <> [delete ".geentroep" to reply]

Thank you,
Robbie Rhodes
