Not a deal - great Hammond article.

Great read, Fleer. Thanks. Reminds me I saw Lee Michaels when I was a kid in a little KC Hall kind of place. It was just him and his drummer Frosty and they had 10 sun amps. two for the drums and 8 for the organ. Really loud and really good.. When I went to a dance in school  watching the horn spin and stop on the Leslie during Gimme Some Lovin was a big part of me wanting to play music. My dad just laughed when I told my dad I wanted to play drums. When I said  I wanted to play bass he just turned and walked away. So guitar was third choice. I dont think he wanted guitar. I just wore him out.

One mentioned in this article is the Telharmonium.  Researching that is quite interesting.

No recordings exist.  It was also the first music subscription service.

Good to see a shout out to the mostly-forgotten champion of the Hammond organ, Rosa Rio. 

Then there's Ethel Smith, who was in a class by herself:
