I thought you would like to know about "Piano Rolls"--they are slightly out of order but quite rare so wanted to re-post these!
This is an unusual item and will be added here along with all the other records, only because the “format” is so different than all the rest. This is another QRS Music Player Piano Word Roll-Rare vintage songs come from these formats. This rare one is “Gentle On My Mind” # 10-210. Played by Dick Watson. 1967 release on Glaser Publications, Inc. A number one hit and a Gold Record for Glen Campbell when he released this song. This was also Glen Campbell’s signature opening song when he had “The Glen Campbell Goodtime Hour” on Television. It is made in the U.S.A. The Tempo on the roll is set and marked at 75. This is an original QRS Player Roll. This one was purchased at an Estate Sale and is in excellent condition. The box is also in great shape and is also the original red casing box. This is the third one that I now own of these player piano rolls that are Glen Campbell songs!

The credit is given to Glen Campbell. This comes in the original red box. The number is 10-372. On the player roll which is “white”, it has Rudy Martin stamped on it and says Tempo 90.
