ED2012 Comedy Review: Barry Morgan’s World Of Organs (Strut & Fret And Liblab Music)

ED2012 3/5 Reviews ED2012 Comedy Reviews

Dare to challenge Barry Morgan’s unsurpassed passion for his organ and you will undoubtedly lose. Here he presents a detailed lesson about his instrument, adding some excitement by over-dramatically demonstrating the many sound effects that his 1981 Hammond Aurora Classic can produce. The character’s jewel heavy, ring clad fingers match his extravagant theatrical manner and appearance as he demonstrates his adoration for the organ through exaggerated facial expressions and cries of amazement. Although definitely comical in places (and a very good advert for the organ), this show peaked too early for me and lost its impact towards the end. Having said this, you can’t fault Barry’s enthusiasm for that instrument…
