The 2021 Wurlitzer 150 Roll Project
I am pleased to offer you five spectacular Wurlitzer 150 rolls!
The music you hear in that video is from a brand new Wurlitzer 150 roll featuring music from popular movies, musicals, and well-known melodies you remember! Newly arranged by Mikey Mills, this roll is sure to quickly become a favorite of yours.
This is just one of five showstopper rolls you will be sure to want to add to your roll collection!
It is imperative to act quickly - this project will sell out
Here it is! The roll with all songs you know and remember. All of the music on this roll was written long after the last Wurlitzer band organ left the factory - but brings a whole new sound out of your band organ! Included are hits from Broadway, the silver screen, and wonderful songs made famous by Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin, and Nat King Cole. Remember that wonderfully hilarious movie "It's a Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World?" How about the old stage musical "How Now, Dow Jones" - which "Step To The Rear": now a popular college fight song comes from! Who could forget Doris Day singing the sentimental waltz: "Que Sera Sera" or the immortal Frank Sinatra crooning "New York, New York"!
This roll is an absolute must for any Wurlitzer band organ owner! Once copies are sold out - this may not be cut again for a long time.
"The lucky dozen" rolls - never before heard early music!
It was said for years that music from the ragtime era never made it onto band organs. That is simply incorrect; what is true is that original rolls dating from the ragtime era still existing are extremely rare!
All of this music comes from early short tracker frame rolls dating from about 1910-1914. Wurlitzer had not yet introduced the long 10 tune roll frame that became the standard from 1916 and beyond.
Originally, this music did not originally have registers. During the early era, trumpet organs such as the style 150 were king and special effects in the counter melody section can be heard in this music. To make use of registration, the music was edited through MIDI not modifying the rare original rolls.
Why one dozen tunes per roll? Because you deserve more of this wonderful music!
Wurlitzer gems from the 20's and 30's
13123 and 13214 have never been recut in their entirety - newly discovered and offered to you here! These are terrific rolls with that great Wurlitzer peppy, bouncy sound! These mid 20's and 30's rolls are often considered the best arranged. John W. Tussing was the arranger during this period of time, Tussing being a family heavily involved in the band organ world of the 20th century.
