- Band Organ Videos 165 Rolls
I am assured that these organs are playing the music you hear. However there is no evidence and I suspect the pictures are still shots.
This video was made by Jim Kenney at Joe Hilferty's shop before the organ was delivered to Don Neilson's place. Joe Hilferty is a restorer in York, Pennsylvania, who does work for Glenn Thomas and also for Donald Neilson, Sr., a collector who has a huge public collection in Norristown, Pennsylvania. Jim Kenney is a man connected with Neilson and who spends a lot of time at the Neilson collection.
There are two versions of Bombasto, it properly belongs as tune 1 on roll 6530. But for years was missing on the only known copy of this roll. A Dutch arranger Tom Meijer was paid to made an arrangement of Bombasto for use on new copies of 6530. Later the original Wurlitzer arrangement was released from the John Maxwell collection when Mr. Maxwell died.
This clip may be playing both versions one after the other and is probably being played too slowly.
These organs probably play 180 style rolls which are as rare as the organs.
