Organ Music - Dick Leibert Playing the Radio City Music Hall Organ, Hits to Keep Forever - 1964 RCA LP Vintage Vinyl Record Album

Throughout the nineteen-forties, nineteen-fifties and well into the sixties, the organ, as a musical presence was ubiquitous. It was part of the soundtrack for an entire generation. Huge console organs such as the one at Radio City Music Hall, here played by Dick Leibert, were known for their rich sounds, as well as the incredible range of tones and effects that could be produced by a master such as Leibert.

On this record, Leibert interprets twelve songs that were world-wide hits. It would be hard to find anyone, even now, 45 years later, who was not familiar with most of these tunes. These are songs from theatre productions and movies, and were all immensely popular and known intimately by millions. Some of the tunes are light, such as Dominique and Java, but just listen to the magnificent gravitas of the theme from Exodus, or the nostalgic reveries of songs such as Days of Wine and Roses, Moon River, and September Song.

Put this record on, settle back comfortably -- and let Dick Leibert escort you back in time as he demonstrates the power of the Radio City Music Hall Console Organ ... an organ, as the liner notes say, "... giant in sound and size. Its mighty steel and wood pipes - ranging in size from thirty-two feet high to half the dimensions of a pencil - are housed in numerous chambers constructed above the stage and throughout the mammoth theatre. Some of the pipes are a full city block apart! From his console in the auditorium, Leibert triggers and blends these remote sounds into unusual combinations of beauty and power. He also has at his disposal, located remotely in the recesses of the theatre, a wide variety of instrumental effects -- ranging from tom-toms, chimes and xylophone to tambourines, castanets, glockenspiel and grand piano."
