During the production of this video, which features the first half of a live concert given by BRIAN SHARP in 1984 at the BBC Playhouse, Manchester WurliTzer, it was announced that he had passed away in January 2016. This concert was the only time that he ever played or appeared at this organ. The second half of the concert [Pedal, Percussion & Pipes Vol 4] features him playing the Kawai organ. Both parts of this concert, during which he shows his inventive musicianship and sense of humour, are respectfully dedicated to this ‘one of a kind’ theatre & electronic organ artist. It was an immense loss to the popular organ world.

MSS Studios started selling organ recordings and books in 1996. In 2005 we took over the organ ‘arm’ of Audicord, who had previously taken over Amberlee Records. In 2011, I started to review CDs & DVDs for Organ & Keyboard Cavalcade Magazine.
