Hammond Organ Film


Joe Muscara

Recommended Posts

Someone in the Hammond Yahoo! group bought the original film and transferred it to digital. I think the part about 'how it seems like families aren't as close as they used to be' is funny.

The rotation was pretty entertaining. I wonder if it bugged him.

I think the sound really sucks on the Chord Organ. Wonder how many of those turkeys they sold... I don't know about you, but the last thing I wanted to do as a kid was to hang out at the house and play hymns with my parents...

 

But If you really want one finger playing, buy a Mellotron.

Love it! Reminds me of the one-manual Lowrey Genies they sold at the mall store where I first took lessons as a kid. I must confess, there is still an appealing uniqueness to the sound.

Yes! And actually kind of profoundly ironic and ironically profound... ;)

Seriously, in our present culture and technology, you hear people worrying the same thing, and blaming it on the internet, or cell phones, or video games.

 

Thanks for posting this Joe. I find it quite poetic and thought-provoking.

"Mrs Brown loves to unwind after a long day of kitchen chores by playing sounds that feature the string tone.." (a tone that makes me want to shoot myself in the head)..

 

This hammond chord organ was our first family organ.. I was probably 4-5 when we got this, and my Dad played it very well.. after a year or two he graduated to a Hammond M3 which sat in my parents living room until about a year ago..

 

Some of the tones were awful.. BTW there were leslie reverb speakers and leslie speakers hooked up to these Chord organs and they didn't sound to bad..

Every single thing I have ever hated about electronic organs - all served up in one tidy package. Thank God for the Barbara Dennerlein clips at the end to purge my ears!

Whenever you find yourself on the side of the majority, it is time to pause and reflect.
