I think the recording is called "Great Occasions at Westminster Abbey".

Good luck!   Actually the Official Reed Organ Society web site is: http://sponsor.globalknowledge.nl/ros/ Do join the ROS list and ask the question, I am sure someone there will have the answer. If you get the answer privately, I would appreciate getting a copy as I would be interested also.   I am also forwarding your request to the Curator of the Organs at the Cath to see if he has any knowledge about it.   David

(back) Subject: 3 manual Hammond...yup yup! (X post) From: "Bob Scarborough" <desertbob@rglobal.net> Date: Wed, 19 Jan 2000 21:15:00   From the "ya wouldn't believe it until now" department...   As many know, I have an outsized collection of organ recordings of various types. Recently, I scored some almost-mint albums by famous TOrganists, Don Baker and Eddie Dunstedter. This was Dunstedter's first LP on Capitol (Capitol T1128, mono only), and, while I knew I had a rare, late performance by "Mr. Pipe Organ", I wasn't quite ready for what was on that = LP!   Most tracks were done on the much-heard Lorin Whitney Studios Robert = Morton 4m/24r theater organ, but some were done on a custom-built 3 manual HAMMOND! Added to this Ham are a vibraharp, celesta, a Krueger string = bass unit and a Solovox! A small snippet of this creation is on the album = cover reverse side showed, indeed, 3 manuals of "waterfalls", and two levels of drawbar bases! I had often though about doing just this little trick, but thought...nah!   I'll "wav" a copy of "Tea for Two", and distribute it through the normal "HamTack" channels. This is worth hearing. The extra flexibility of the third manual, as well as other tonal accoutrements, make this Hammond = truly interesting! Recording date isn't noted, but the release of the LP is = most definately well into the stereo era (Lorin Whitney hadn't upgraded to stereo until well into the '60s), and I'd put the date somewhere around = 1963.   Album credits say that the custom 3 manual Hammond was built by Jack Kirk, a name that rings a bell. Anyone else??   DeserTBoB
