Two and a half hours left to go Eastern, that'd be five and a half for you, HM...

Here's the "Melloman", a variation of the Mellotron using cassette tapes! A 2005 innovation, cool looking!

And here's the Melloman opened so as to display the innards.

Meanwhile:

Currently playing track:
Mangala Vallis - Asha (Coming Back Home)

I'm really enjoying the show, HM! A lot of stuff a haven't heard before that I like--that it itself makes for a great broadcast for me--plus familiar favorites, an excellent broth!

Currently playing track:
Cyrille Verdeaux & Clearlight - First Movement

This sounds great! I used to have it on vinyl. Sounds like a good remastering job has been done on it.

There's a version of the later part of that piece, the piano-dominated part, with Gabriel-esque vocals added, it's credited to "Clearlight" and it's the last track on the 1st disc of the 006 KALEVALA project. Don't know exactly how the contemporary Clearlight relates to the old.

God, I wish I'd kept my vinyl!!!!

Here's the 2002 Mellotron book by Frank Samagaio. It might be somewhat out of date as they've started making Mellotrons again since then, and software Trons have been coming out like the one you posted. I think you've already linked us to the new Mellotron book, the one by Nick Awde.

MEANWHILE, here's a link to a BBC4 Mellotron video. I haven't checked it out yet, but my friend says it features Peter Sinfield, Bill Bruford, and Rick Wakeman!

Currently playing track:
Harmonium - Depuis l`automne

All right!

An exquisite piece of music--and one of the great wraparound album covers!

Excellent vid Dan - wish there was more of it! Tony Banks (Genesis) spoke as well...quick little archival shot of a young Wakeman playing...there should be a DVD out there of this! Cool
