Trower, Brooker, Wilson and Derrick; good shots
of the band's instruments that can be seen in action here
Note that there's no piano visible; whereas in this shot the drums are the 'ghost' element.
Paramounts in performance: a great rarity ...
if not a fantastically composed photograph.
We are reasonably confident that no picture currently displayed at BtP rivals this acreage of elegant curtain
Detail from the above ... Robin Trower in front
of a small amplifier; Gary Brooker sings into an upright microphone that
stands, Jerry Lee-style,
at the right-hand end of the keyboard: this is the Hohner Pianet that Gary speaks of rather disparagingly here ... although this instrument does
appear to have something underneath it, where you'd expect to see a sustain pedal mechanism.
Larry Pennisi advises: there are two models of
the Hohner Pianet, the Model-T (Tolex) and the Model-N (Natural).
The letter refers to the finish of the keyboard but there are other differences in them as well. The Model-T has passive electrics
and has little rubber "stickers" to pull the tines. The Model-N has a pre-amp and specially treated leather "stickers"
to pull the tines. The T is slimmer and more robust since it was designed for live performance.
