Cyrus had this to say about the book. We quote him in blue text below:
I have completed scanning the book, and can now make a test print. I paid the specified royalties to the copyright owner, and expect to receive a signed letter giving me permission to make 25 copies. The current number of requests has greatly exceeded that number, so, I will have to request permission to make additional copies (probably, no problem).
Will wonders never cease ?? Lee Erwin made a recording of the music from that book, and I think I have found a copy. Bought it tonight, on ebay. If the LP turns out to actually be the one in question, I will see if I can get permission to reproduce it, and offer a CD along with the book for anyone who wants it.
Will keep you posted. This is getting interesting.
