3.1 How The Music Below was Produced

This music has been produced from original midi files made from scanned Wurlitzer 125 and 150 paper rolls. As Wurlitzer paper rolls do not contain the full information necessary for playing correctly unless used on a real organ, I have added the omitted information using musical instruments with sounds similar to those of a real Organ. For details see How to Play Wurlitzer Band Organ Music Rolls.

This music is in mp3 and ogg formats, both are good quality audio. This can be only a sample of the available Wurlitzer 125 and 150 rolls, there are well over 250 more.

The Wurlitzer Music Roll labels are not genuine.
