Here's a blast from the past. Vince will remember this one, in fact he might even remember selling me the LP in 1970 - as It was bought from Southern Organs!

Jackie Brown is playing the Farfisa 6050, the largest spinet in the Farfisa range at the time. It had the usual fizzy Italian sound, and Jackie was adept at getting the best out of it. Not the easiest of organs to register and play, sound changes sometimes took a lot of effort and tab pushing!

Here's the link, You can download or stream the individual tracks.



It's not what you play, it's not how you play. It's the fact that you're playing that counts.
