Well, I honestly didn’t think the OF was the place I’d ever post this link.
This is my father, playing the Civic Theatre Wurlitzer in Auckland NZ, in 1958 just a few weeks after I was born. One take, recorded on a four-track reel to reel Phillips machine and a single condenser mic sitting in the middle of the stage.
The old man was a massive George Wright fan but, clearly no slouch in his own right when it came to pedalling a Wurly.
A great shame he never got to play the Wanamaker store organ and some of the other great installations around the States.
