  • Hammond

    Not sure if this has been covered.

    but i'm seeing loads of hammond lp's at the moment
    all look dodgy but there's gotta be gold in there somewhere !!

    what i'm asking is .....
    can anyone recommend some of the players i should be looking out for as my knowledge is rather thin in that department.

    any help would be appreciated.
    Whats you're style ?

    Of the 'charity shop staples', and off the top of my head, Harry Stoneham, Big Jim H, Danny Hodgson (has a Portishead sample on it somewhere) all have their moments - I'm sure others will add more ...

              Jerry Allen eh? i came across an LP of his a few weeks ago and its has a decidedly odd bash at 'Sylvia' that slips nicely into the 'so bad its good' bracket, mostly for the bontempi-stylee drum machine...odd!!

                I'm sure that Lord Thames will have more info on this than be, but....

                Jerry Allen had more than a vested interest in the Hammond than most in that he also had 'Jerry Allens Organ Centre' (f'nar) or somesuch place selling the things. He is also responsible for the Gemini label, which for some unknown reason seems to the imprint that some of the material from Morgan Music (Barry's label ?) also came out on... certainly my copy of 'The Excursion' (an Allen project) is on Gemini rather than Morgan, as are all the other copies I've seen.

                His 'Sump'n Else' LP is worth it for 'Persian Fly' (comped on 'Get Smarter), and there is a nice little break on his 'Oscar Winners' LP.

                While we're on the Hammond tip, don't forget Ron Reeve and the mighty (and often discussed around here) Ad-Rhythm label.

                  Funny you should say that......( I can never resist a challenge)

                  Yes, Jerry Allen did run the Jerry Allen Organ Centre (can't remember where it was but I doubt it's still there - unfortunately he died in 1985).

                  Jerry had a hand in the Morgan label (the Morgan empire encompassed records, music publishing and the famous Morgan studios in Willesden Road), and was listed as one of its directors (along with founder Barry Morgan, Monty Babson, and Leon Calvert, although Barry always considered it to be his company).
                  The Morgan label later mutated into Gemini.

                  Jerry Allen was also involved with another label, Alamo which was specialised in organ music.
                  The best Alamo LP I have is 'The Hammond Set', on which he's uncredited, although his take on 'Sylvia' on 'The Hands of Jerry Allen' is very brave.

                  Other organists - Howard Blake's already been mentioned, but deserves to be mentioned again.
                  Also Andre Brasseur, Brian Dee and Don Hunt (check out Don H's solo on Bruce Forsyth's version of 'Lucretia MacEvil' - mindblowing&#33

                  Does Germany have more Hammond organists per 100 of population than any other country in the world? I think so.

                    Well this is it.
                    I'm living on the boarder of germany in holland and i'm seeing
                    loads of the stuff.
                    like i said it looks all rather duff.
                    and there's only so much you can listen to on ya portable without it slowing you down.

                    cheers for all the help anyway.
                    i'll post up anything half decent that i can scrounge from the bins.

                      Chris Waxman - 'Organ-ized' on Phase 4 is one tracker really, but the one track's a fast 'Mas Que Nada'. it's a retitled Klaus Wunderlich evidently
