Post subject:  Request for a CD..

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)
Cuckoo Waltz
I'd Like To Teach The World To Sing (same arrangement as
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
Oklahoma (same arrangement as , Tom Meijer I believe again)
Viva Espana
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.
