Pump it up ...

An Overall caprice

I assume you've been following the organ vs. synth discussion on the Procol Harum mail-list. Here's my  commentary (one picture is worth a thousand words) 

It's a Victorian pump organ (the two pedals you see work a bellows to supply air) they were almost always very ornate, made out of expensive woods like walnut & cherry, and a surprising number of homes had them in America (well, they couldn't very well put one of the CDs from the box set on, now could they?)
