  1. Stephen Just browsing on here as I often do in my lunchbreak, I came across your introduction. It brought all sorts of memories flooding back. As a student in London in the late 60s (although not a music student I hasten to add - I wasn't good enough!) and one addicted to the organ in all its guises, I knew John Stewart well and spent many happy hours in his company at the Gaumont State and at other consoles in the South East.

The balanced swell pedals were set so high you needed double jointed knees to get your feet on them without falling off the bench!
