Brilliant statement coming from a piano technician, huh?
Working on a set of keys got delayed for far too long. First is was that Friday grand piano damper job, then Saturday, umm, kinda went by. Oh yeah, ordering flowers for P's funeral, a run to the dump, the bank, a tuning at the art association...time just gets used up.
So Sunday rolls around and I find that I have an incredible amount of catching up to do on the key job. Aside from a fun little jaunt to do some antique and junk shop browsing, the entire day was spent in the workshop. And I needed motivation to keep working along.
What better than some upbeat music. What did I choose? The first selection was Enchanted Carousel.
One of these recordings, I believe it is Enchanted Carousel is of a 165 band organ reproduction built by Verbeeck Organ Manufacturing of Belgium. The only info I came across was that it replaced a Seabreeze Wurlitzer 165 after that organ burned.
Anyway, both recordings are a great deal of fun and kept me 'at it' rather than bemoaning the time involved.
And...while I was in that kind of mood, I ordered a calliope recording!
