ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
If your looking for authentic Carousel music for your themed event or just for casual listening, "Katy Lou" is the gal for you. "KATY LOU" is a delightful Wurlitzer Style #153 Duplex Orchestral Organ. This type was used on three-abreast carousel's, in open dance pavilions, skating rinks, and other amusement areas. "KATY LOU" is painted in a myriad of bright colors with beautiful desert scenes on the facade. The scroll work is hand carved and painted in the colors of the flowers and cacti of the desert and the bright blue of the southwestern sky. Decorative screens in front of the louvers and bar-bells depict a native American scene, and a lonely wagon trail disappearing towards the distant mountains. Raised panels on the side wings are adorned with picturesque Saguaro cactus, Joshua trees, Ocotillo and Yuccas. Other panels sow quiet desert and mountain scenes. The machine was made by the Wurlitzer Company of North Tonawanda, New York. It has 54 Keys and plays from paper rolls of music. The organ was used for many years in the Midwest in an amusement park and then had been stored for years until Paul Eakins,a pioneer in collecting automatic musical instruments, purchased and painstakingly restored it. The scroll work was carved by hand and the badly damaged and punctured screens were replaced with stainless steel screens. Many hours were spent in completely restoring the machine, along with the voicing and turning of the pipes.
The songs on this CD feature the most famous songs played on Carousels. From "Over the Waves" to "Barnum and Bailey's Favorite", there is a mixture of military marches, sentimental favorites, and toe tapping songs that explain why this type of music is called "The Happiest Music on Earth".

Katy Lou Anticipation!
I am anticipating the arrival of my Katy Lou CD. I will be utilizing this CD for our church carnival, and I can assure you that our church members and children will love this CD. I already love to hear the samples on CD Baby. Ironically, my 3 year old daughter's name is Katie. I plan on doing more than our carnival with it. Thanks for having this available. -Jessie

I bought this CD for a 'themed' event, The carousel music on this CD is fantastic! ITwas everything i needed and expected it to be. These tunes are all the ones you've heard for years at amusement parks. If yo close your eyes you can almost believe you're back at those parks. Great!

I ordered katy Lou on monday she arived at my house on thursday in perfict shape.
The sound qualty is as clear as if the organ its self was here in my livingroom cranking out her tunes.
All thats missing is the 36 galoping horses and 2 chariots cercaling me.

Back in the 1970's I stumbled on this recording as an LP and loved it. I have used it for my children's dance classes and performances. I wore it out and then lost it in many moves. I was so happy to find it again here at CD BAby. It is a fantastic recording of nostalgic sounds and music that will enable my students to be introduced to history and music they are unfamilar with, but I know they will love it.
