"Dove" - on Viscount RBX-850
YouTube Published on Aug 6, 2012 by organfairy
"This used to be an ordinary home organ. But I converted it into a portable model that sits on a stand. It's now so lightweight that I can carry it under one arm. But if you look what's inside this late 1980's organ you can see why: Two circuit boards, a small transformer, two rows of thin plastic keys, and some rubber buttons. That's it.
I have had it for twelve years and while I rarely used it as a lead instrument it found it's way into many of my recordings.
This musical item is one of the few examples I have where the Viscount plays both melody, bass, and rhythm. The song is called Dove and I have been told that it was a hit for an Italian singer that called herself Moony. The other parts of arrangement is played on Yamaha HE-8 organ and Roland JX-8P synthesizer. I recorded it in 2003 on my Fostex 8-channel tape machine."
