Product Information

Audio CD featuring Yamaha Tyros, Clavinova and Nord C1 organ 

 
Running time 73':30"
 
"In June 1973 I joined the staff of Sheffield’s largest music store - and so began a journey that would bring me, forty years later, to produce this CD. In the 1970s arranger keyboards hadn’t yet been invented and the electronic organ was enjoying a period of enormous popularity that, looking back, now seems impossible to imagine.
 
My first BBC broadcast followed later that year - by which time I had set my sights on becoming a demonstrator for the Hammond Organ company - following in the footsteps of my personal heroes of the time. Fate, however, had other plans and, in 1980, I became part of the Yamaha story just as the company launched a range of instruments that would turn the musical world on its head and propel the name Yamaha to the very forefront of the industry.
 
I found myself on the roller-coaster ride of a life-time as Yamaha and Panasonic (in the form of the ‘Technics’ organ brand) battled it out for supremacy. Innovation followed innovation as each strove to gain the upper hand - and it is with gratitude to them that, today, as I finish this recording, I remember the days when what I have just produced with a couple of keyboards in my ‘home studio’ would have taken days of expensive time in a huge sound-proofed studio and an army of technicians. 
 
To mark my (first) forty years as a musician I’d like to take you back in time - starting with a collection of brand new recordings, made using a mixture of Yamaha and Nord instruments, before stepping back through the years to include some of my favourite tracks from the early days. I hope you will enjoy them too."
