This German website is an excellent source of information and music... check it out.

http://grammophon-platten.de/page.php?540

Interesting article about an early Berlin Orchestra - very well researched...
"Georgi Vintilescu – the „Ragtime King“ from the Palais de Danse, Berlin"
His band was way ahead of the times... this style of music from 1911 is wonderful. Normally, I don't like most "dance" music from that era, but his is unique for the time period.

"The Gaby Glide" would be a great cylinder to own...

Thank you for the positive feedback! :rose: With this link you´ll find some more recordings of the "Palais de Danse" Orchestra: http://grammophon-platten.de/e107_plugi ... iew.34.0.2

Another good orchestra, now we are in the 1920s..., is the band of Efim Schachmeister from the Excelsior Hotel, Berlin: http://grammophon-platten.de/e107_plugi ... .view.40.0

Thanks for the links... where in Germany are you located? I have visited many times and love Germany. In fact I had a cancer treatment, which was very successful, in Munich...
