interim post: Lee Erwin-scored short

I know, I know, I haven’t posted any video here in a few weeks. To keep you happy, here is a 1929 Mack Sennett short co-starring Carole Lombard that I just uploaded to YouTube. It has a score by Lee Erwin, which he performed and recorded on his ersatz theatre organ, comprised of three early digital keyboards stacked on a rack — Roland Juno, Yamaha DX77, Emu Emax sampling keyboard — plus a full organ pedalboard custom-wired to an old Moog. He plays it like a theater organ, but doesn’t necessarily try to duplicate theatre organ sounds. There is so little of Lee’s playing for comedy shorts available, I thought this was worthy uploading and posting. Enjoy!
