Editor's note: I wouldn't say that the fingers are necessarily flying here but they certainly are doing magical things with a grand instrument in one of its more whimsical forms: the electric Hammond Organ. Oddly enough this guy recorded under two different names (see cover notes) and neither one seemed to be overly successful. Which is too bad because I like this persona of his.
