    This is great listening!
    And, the lighting is awesome!

    FWIW, I LIKE the ’80s lighting — Works well to compliment the showmanship of the organist and the music he’s playing. I think more organ concerts should use this type or lighting. Some pyrotechnics wouldn’t hurt either (provided it’s well put on & supervised by experts) — KISS theatrics accompanying theater organ! YEA!! That’s the ticket!!

    Yes, this was taken from a 90’s VHS of Robert. It’s used here with full permission of Wolfe Productions.

    This was taken from the VHS tape wasn’t it?
    I can tell by the sound quality and the 80’s style lighting in the video. Also Robert looks so young!

    ok here;s a tricky one for any of you eggheads…has any one seen the latest Sky Movies Showcase which was shown before the Harry Potter half hour specials?
    The guy who does the narrating is doing my head in as I want to know his name – and its NOT Michael Gambon. It sounds like a scots actor..

    Can any one help as the staff at sky are lost too….
