And to my ears, there's nothing like a full-bore Hammond being
driven by Jon Lord from Deep Purple. Nobody, but nobody gets that
angry, hulking, growling sound from an organ like Lord.

Speaking of Tomita....on his "Bermuda Triangle" album (mine is on
blue vinyl......) he included an encoded message that required
someone with a Tarbell cassette interface to read. I never had the
necessary equipment, and it's always bugged me as to what the
message was. Has anyone here ever decoded it?

I'm not familiar with Subotnick. What is his style? Is it more like
Carlos, Tomita, or Fast? Or, something completely different?
