HP3002 – Price includes postage
The complete solo tracks of Granada organist, Dudley Beaven, recorded by Decca just before World War 2. The 3 manual, 8 rank Wurlitzer in the Granada was installed under-stage and had a particularly ‘direct’ sound in the auditorium that was popular with the public and recording engineers alike.
The album includes 3 tracks by the Granada Three – Dudley Beaven on organ with Harry Farmer and Leo Rae playing piano.
These tracks were transferred from 78 rpm records by Wayne Ivany, who also wrote the liner notes. The digital processing was by producer Steve Ashley using professional restoration software.
