    In a Persian Market was a great favourite with the UK theatre organists from way back when it was written. I've heard some of my friends and colleagues play it in concert on pipes, and on electronics, as many of the theatre organists migrated to Hammond as the electronic organ gained popularity.

    Can you give us a link to the recording you have? Or email it to me?

    If you type in a persian market organ into youtube you'll get a variety of examples. Like my good friend Howard Beaumont playing it on Kawai SR6. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Hd6KWJJvMdg He swings it a bit! Or the great Reginald Dixon playing it in 1936! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YIm34YKPqgk Or maybe Klaus Wunderlich really swinging on Hammond! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YIm34YKPqgk
    It's not what you play. It's not how you play. It's the fact that you're playing that counts.

      Thanks Andy,

      In fact it‘s the version of Klaus Wunderlich I‘m surprised. Does not really sound so much like his typical Wersi area ...
      The link you mentioned should probably be: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EtIISpSWbC4

      Ok, well, so i have hundreds of titles of the artist who played it, but not much that sound like this.

        Klaus played Hammond for years (I think he started in the 50s) before he moved over to Wersi in the 70s.
