Description: Music For Movie-Palace Organs
Ann Leaf, Gaylord Carter, organs

Few wonders of the movie palace brought more shivery pleasure to audiences (or caused more breast-beating  among crusaders for Culture) than the Mighty Wurlitzer. Part one-man band, part symphony orchestra, part sound-effects department, the Wurlitzer was one of the most versatile instruments ever devised by man. This expertly chosen selection of popular tunes and accompaniments to some of the blockbusters of the time showcases the dual functions of the Wurlitzer at the height of its popularity-as a dispenser of culture to the masses and a soundtrack to their dreams.

Strike Up the Band; You Do Something to Me; The Son of the Sheik; You Were Meant for Me; Orphans of the Storm; Jeannine, I Dream of Lilac Time; For Heaven's Sake; My Romance; Great Day; Charmaine; Intolerance; The Phantom of the Opera
