ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
As a collector of automatic music recordings for 45+ years and record review editor for the Musical Box Society in the 1960s and early 70s, I heartily recommend this CD for anyone who likes American “nickelodeon”
music, and especially for anyone who would like to hear the difference
between several different brands and models of coin pianos and orchestrions playing different brands of rolls.

The nice variety of instruments includes a very early Wurlitzer Pianino, Link 2E (piano, mandolin attachment and xylophone), Empress Electric style Y (which includes the instrumentation of a Coinola X with xylophone and drums), Coinola C-2 (playing O rolls on piano, mandolin, a
rank of solo flute pipes and drums), Cremona G (with flute pipes), Seeburg KT Special (piano, xylophone, mandolin and 9 other percussion > instruments), and Seeburg G. The instruments are restored and regulated
properly and tuned well. The acoustics are just right---bright enough to add life to the sound, without too much reverberation.

The generous total of 35 tunes on the CD include a good variety of ragtime (“Funny Bones Rag,” “Barbed Wire Rag,” “Reindeer Rag,” “Bohemia”
and over a dozen more), blues (“Ain’t Much Good in the Best of Men,”
“Sobbin’ Blues” “Blame it on the Blues” and others), fox trots (“Somebody Loves Me,” “Where’s My Sweetie Hiding” and others) and misc.
tunes that don’t fit into the other categories (“Grandpa’s Spells,” “King Porter Stomp,” Sugar Foot Strut,” “Cubanola Glide,” “Oceana Roll,” etc.).

If you’ve wondered what makes different brands and coin pianos and orchestrions, sound vastly different from each other, this recording gives you a good start. It also shows you the nice variety of music available on various types of coin piano music rolls.
If you would like to own one coin piano or orchestrion, it will also help you to decide which type you like the best. I have no vested interest in promoting the CD, but I’ve enjoyed playing it numerous times, and our friend John Motto-Ros deserves credit for the nice job he
did in making some fine music available.

A CD that will take you back 100 years
There are very few recordings available that capture in hi-fidelity stereo the unique timbre and turn-of-the century feel of the automatic instruments ubiquitous to the last century like this recording does. Each track is of high quality, and represents each instrument with a jolly tune indicative the "speakeasy" days. I heartily recommend this CD!

Regs and Blues
Wow. Nice to hear a clear recording without a lot of machinery noise in the background. This CD really captures the melody and the mood of the teens and 1920s.

A time capsule to a bygone era
As a novice and a new enthusiast in the mechanical music realm, it was nice to finally find a CD that presented the "best of all worlds" so to speak. A very nice selection of Nickelodeons and Orchestrions are presented on the CD with DYNAMITE music playing on them. I dare anyone not to tap their foot when listening! The selections played on the Cremona-G are just plain FUN! I've played this CD for a couple friends who had no idea these types of instruments and music existed. And it's time to let the re-education begin. This is the true music of the roaring twenties; it could be heard in countless dance halls, restaurants, and soda or ice cream parlors. A great era of America's past lives on every time someone new hears this music for the first time. Trying to listen to all these instruments in person would be next to impossible for most, but on this CD they sound as if they're right in your living room. The sound quality is excellent and captures every note, nuance, and percussive instrument in astounding clarity. Purchase this CD now for yourself and maybe a friend too! It will instantly become one of your favorite CD's.
