Description
Here's a much older synth, a WurliTzer from 1928. Recorded when I was in college, at Loew's United Artists Theater in Louisville. Friends were bringing the old girl back to life after she had been flood damaged 30 years earlier in 1937. The ornate rococo theater still exists as the Louisville Palace. Alas, the Wurly was broken up in 1978 and parts wound up a pizza parlor in Georgia and in various church organs.

One not like others - Organ sounds GOod tremolo is healing ! for when they pass the offering plate and carry it to the balcony where some usher hopefully will not attempt to pilfer anything from the plate.

You've done well to keep a copy of this. Smooth playing of a beautiful tune, and good to hear the distinctive tones of that organ!

WurliTzer may be dissasembled but it’s spirit lives on.

Ghost Music
The legacy from the silent films perhaps... All the music from the silents, played by the orchestra during the film from the pit... ghostly sounds from the past. Splendid.

Tragedy
...The sentiment behind this lovely song, and the destruction of the 1928 organ. At least you have a recording of how this instrument sounded. So pleasant to hear it here.
