Keystone Music Roll Company

Popular WORD ROLL Selections

All of Keystone's popular rolls will have the words printed right on the roll!! Even some of the rolls that never had words will become WORD ROLLS. We believe that the words have to be on the roll to really enjoy and identify with these early tunes. The song's 'Lyrics' are just as important as the 'Music'. Try some --SING!!!-- You will never buy those wordless rolls again.

2646International Rag (Berlin) -Artist: Malvin Franklin12.00
This is one of Irving Berlin's early (1913) hits. Originally produced without words and meant for the Stoodard Ampico. We have restored this roll to be better suited to the later Model "A" system and have added the WORDS !!!
2971April in Paris (Duke) -Artist: Edgar Fairchild12.00
One of the best ballad performances available -with words.
51734Poor Butterfly (Hubbell) -Artist: Andrei Kmita12.00
This is the un-issued extended version of this song. According to the notes written on the stencil. This roll was destined to be a word roll with two verses and multiple choruses. The song became a smash run-away hit in 1916, so Ampico believed everyone knew the words, and in a rush to capture sales, they issued the roll without words and without the repeats. We have restored the roll as intended.
52683Memories (van Alystne) -Artist: Andrei Kmita12.00
Another big hit from the 1915-16 era, restored and with words.
53794China We Owe A Lot to You (Ager) -Artist: Arden & Franklin12.00
Another lost roll from 1917. A perfect example of a roll that without the words would just be another pleasant fox trot BUT with the lyrics WOW !! This roll is certainly not for the politically correct.

71853Dinner Music No. 17 All The Things You Are; Heaven in My Arms; All in Fun; That Lucky Fellow17.00
We found this original master stencil here at Keystone. According to the notes written on it, the original title was to be "Very Warm For May Selections". This show was Jerome Kern's & Oscar Hammerstein's grand return to Broadway in mid-1939. Upon opening, one critic wrote, "Very Warm for May, not so hot in June". The show closed after 59 performances. Aeolian decided to re-name the roll as a Dinner Music roll. The songs did catch on in spite of the dismal show. "All The Things You Are" becoming on of Kern's most remembered tunes. ALL the lyrics are wonderful.
