In history of reproducing piano rolls I talk about different companies that made piano rolls & reproducing piano rolls at the turn of 20th century. I cover companies such as Duo-Art, Welte-Mignon, Ampico A & B and many others. I cover story of Vorsetzer, a machine with wooden fingers that played the piano, reproducing the sounds of great masters like Paderewski, Saint-Saens, Hofmann & many, many others. Even if they are no longer with us their spirit lives on in these reproducing piano rolls played by their ghosts. Genius never dies my grandma said in Latin: "Dignum laude virum, Musa vetat mori" Goddess Musa does not allow noble & what's or who is immortal to die. Find out about technical aspects of Vorsetzers, Piano-Players, Player-Pianos. It's not the same. Music is art, research this kind of music more in depth.

Wow!!! Great book or should I say 3 books in one!!! Mr. Jan Paul Lary Lubek is the cream of the crop to say the least. He wants to prove Rocky Marciano's record should be changed to 50-0, because one exhibition fight in Rio De Janeiro, Brazil should have been registered as a pro but because of Rocky's legal obligations to his manager Al Weill he was bit allowed to fight this bout to be in the records book + Al would demand his 50% of the share or else: sue the crap out of Rocky. Rocky said Al was good manager but he was not a very nice guy. Sometimes when Rocky was punching the boxing bag instead of thinking of his opponent, he would imagine Al's face on the bag & hit it. The book also talks about Rocky's other exhibitions around the world. In his second book, Lubek gives compelling evidence on George Reeves death in either as suicide or murder & even because he played Russian Roulette. The George Reeves Project is trying to change George's death certificate from suicide to just death by gunshot because there is ample evidence supporting murder & suicide versions & even if all they people who were alive at the time of his death were alive today not much would have been or could have been done. In Lubek's third book he talks about the history of the reproducing piano rolls, on its history, technical aspects how they work. He claims original 1904 Freiburg rolls are the best & reproduce the pianist best with the slightest touch on the keyboard. It is as if the original piano masters &virtuosos like Paderewski, Hofman, Saint-Seans, Levin, Debussy were brought back to life & playing in the present. Their ghosts have been exercised.
