Organ Sounds In Super Stereo - Alan Hawkshaw Plays The Philicorda [1972]




A nice & easy treat from the greatest British session organist.

Very rare and hard to find, this LP is a mixture of standards and 60s & 70s pop classics played by the Hawk along with his session legend friends Brian Bennett, Jim Lawless, Chris Spedding, Tony Carr and Danny Richmond.

Mariella is a Hawkshaw original and is a definite highlight, as are the versions of Spinning Wheel and My Cherie Amour.

There are also some great liner notes from the Hawk himself!

I hope you enjoy it!

  3. what an awesome album...Hawkshaw is at the top of his game here, almost channeling Walter Wanderley on some tracks. Thanks so much for sharing this rarity, which I've never seen before. Prime Hawk...
