History of the Mellotron | NAMM 2020


Published on Jan 20, 2020 Under the Big Tree

"Richard Chamberlin, son of Harry Chamberlin, inventor of the Mellotron, tells us stories about the early days of the Chamberlin (predecessor to the Mellotron). We discuss the impact of the instrument on rock and pop music in the 60's and 70's, and the original intended audience for the instrument.

As an added bonus, a French musician named Frederic plays the intro to the seminal Genesis song "Watcher of the Skies" on the Mellotron."
