That's a heck of an unnecessary thing to lug around! Now, I've seen retro bands disguise modern keyboards as Vox Continentals and such. I helped a guy do it once. It was just some 90s rompler in a red Tolex covered box on chrome "Z" legs. It was roomy enough to accomodate most keyboards of the day. It doubled as a case.

Hello again, my imaginary friends. :wave:

Today I bring you two albums that influenced me as a wee lad. I ripped these off the original vinyl a couple of weeks ago and thought that MAYBE you all might be interested.

The first one is "Knuckles O'Toole Plays the All Time Greatest Ragtime", originally released in 1956, although this copy is a re-release from 1966, on the Grand Award label. This album is partly to blame for my interest in piano as a kid (not to mention that my dad could play and we had a real player piano), and also contributed to my obsession with ragtime as a teenager. Please excuse the pops and clicks, I didn't treat it well way back when. :cry:

The second second blast from my past is pure exotica cheese, from "Lonely Harpsichord: Rainy Night in Shangri-la". What this album MOSTLY did was to scare me, what with it's rolling thunder and dark, moody harpsichord. Haunted house central, I tells ya! Anyway, I didn't have the original copy, so I went out and bought one of the 'Bay. Lulz. Here ya go:

I also ripped a couple of Tomita albums that I can't find on CD (at a reasonable price), but they're so badly scratched that I'm not sure I want to keep the results. Shame on me for not taking better care of my albums.

enjoy!

My ex used to bitch about that on older recordings, apparently they didn;t explain to him during his degree in jazz studies that there was a point in time when stereo was still quite novel and everyone in the studio was bombed, probably the recording engineer had stormed out by that point saying "I don;t have to listen to this shit" and then someone found the pan control, had a big toke and then was like "wow, man".

Indeed. I played the guitar long before I got my first Rhodes. I guess it'd be about 25 years now.

:thu: Righteous. Lately I've discovered a smallish regret that I never learned to twang the gee-tar. I never cared too much about it till I taught myself the rudiments to show my son. Occasionally I quite enjoy quietly plinking on a box guitar. And it would be a useful skill for writing teh pops muzix.

A while back I picked up a cheap Strat copy to use as a parts donor so I could try making one of these:

1970 white funk hornz band. Jimmy Carter liked them very much, I'm told.
Sorry if the EQ is crummy. If anyone wants it done better, let me know.

Glad you likey! I'll put the other 3 sides up, if you wish.

Ya know, now that I think about it, that might have been released in the late 60's. I'll have to look on the albumn.

¿which one is teh white?
Well, maybe they aren't all of purely Aryan stock... :lol: But I refer to the type of musix. What would you call it?
