David Ramey is offering copies of M-725 for sale. It's a very nice blues roll, hand-played, and one every M-machine owner should consider owning. Can anyone identify the artist(s)?
I stripped off everything but the notes in the attached files and just for fun I added A-roll instrumentation to the first two tunes. The titles are below.
