I received an email requesting information about a CD. Does anyone recognise the CD from the track titles and where a copy could be obtained?
I am trying to track down a particular cassette recording of a street organ, and all the information I have is some of the songs that were on the cassette. I understand this is not much information to go on, but was wondering if someone may be able to point me in the right direction of a person or resource or something that would perhaps help me try and track down even just what organ it was on the cassette, as I don't even know that.
The cassette is one I owned many many years ago and has since been lost in the mists of time, but holds many memories for me and I would love to be able to own the recording again.
I am pretty sure the title was simply something along the lines of "Dutch Street Organ", and it had a black and white picture of the organ on the cover. Here are the songs I know for a fact were on the cassette:
Tulips from Amsterdam (pretty sure this was the very first track)
I'd Like To Teach The World To Sing (same arrangement as http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=t4qNawtj0V4)
Al Jolson Medley (arr. Tom Meijer) (I know this as I have since heard another recording which I recognised to be the correct arrangement)
Alexander's Ragtime Band (same arrangement as http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GXYLSy1KREs)
Oklahoma (same arrangement as http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vgNFLYPXN30 , Tom Meijer I believe again)
Over The Waves (not 100% sure on this one)
In The Mood
Land of Hope and Glory (Pretty sure this was the last song on one of the sides)
Although as you can see I have found the same arrangements on other organs for some of the songs, I would really love to actually get my hands on the original recording. It's a long shot but worth a try.
Thank you very much for your assistance.
