Editor's note: I thought this was another Middle Eastern record sans the dancing girls on the cover but I am sorely mistaken. The Emperor is actually a huge organ. A Mortier Organ to be precise and apparently these things are room-sized monsters from the golden era of the organ craze. That said, it's just an ordinary recording with nothing special to offer other than the fact it's a Mortier. That should be enough for somebody.
