Sippican Cottage. Hammond It Up Again

Sippican Cottage has become the Intertunnel's appendix, mostly useless, flaring up occasionally, but dammit, someone has to be your go-to catchment area for Hammond organ music.

We would be remiss if we didn't include the song that's "the most played song in the last 75 years in public places in the UK," as well as the "most-played record by British broadcasting of the past 70 years."

Let's neck under the bleachers!

"One of sixteen vestal virgins who were leaving for the coast". Great song. I saw Procol Harum & King Crimson together when I was a wee laddie.

Hello again - I haven't called for a while (too busy ego-tripping on my own blog/s).

Glad to see you are still active.

I still sometimes think about your nearly-fatal scrape with the Lyme disease- e.g. when I published this:

I have since been publicly and messily sacked from that editing job! -

Anyway, for me the Hammond organ is this:

The long, hot summer of 1970, between finishing Primary School and starting High School.

I love this single - the rhythm playing is simply wonderful - especially the way they keep stopping and leaving a hole in the sound.

Hello Bruce- Long time no see. I'm still above the lawn, as we say. I've moved to the wilds of Maine from Massachusetts, though.

Awesome dub selection there.

I've been away from your blog -- I've missed your randomness and humor.

My loss.

Procol Harem.

I haven't thought about them. Well, I haven't thought about them in a long time.

Man.

Based on a Bach composition.
