St-Bertrand-de-Comminges, this unusually sited organ (in a corner, rather than along a side or end wall) dates from around 1550, by an unknown organ builder. It has three manuals and pedal and is built on five fluted pillars carved with secular scenes of rural life.

This long unavailable CD set of the Bach Organ Works, by the incomparable Wolfgang Rübsam, is now available for download on AmazonUK! HIGHLY recommended.

Something totally different from 1952. This is Reg Dixon and the Tower Lounge trio at the Tower Ballroom, Blackpool, with The Blackpool bounce. If this doesn't get your toes tapping, I don't know what will!

David Rhodes plays "Orchids in the Moonlight", on the Mighty Wurlitzer theatre organ of the Tower Ballroom, Blackpool.
The song was featured in the 1933 movie "Flying Down to Rio" which is noted as being the first screened pairing of Ginger Rogers and Fred Astaire. The song was also recorded by Rudy Vallee and The Platters.
