“Bohemian Rhapsody” on a 1905 Organ

In this case, it does what it says on the tin…

It’s creepy and wonderful. ¬†Cronderful, if you will.

    Ok, that is highly bizarre to me that it’s arranged for player organ. Kudos to the guy responsible for maintaining this thing such that it all works and is in tune (for anyone who has been to House on the Rock, you know what I’m talking about).

    I wonder if anyone has ever manged to make player (piano/organ) rolls that have a decent “feel”, that aren’t all perfect–that have a little syncopation. Potentially it has to do with how the punched roll is made–if it’s computer assisted, you’d think it would be possible to “unperfect” it in some way.

    And in conclusion, here’s my favorite cover.

      Yeah, I can’t imagine the amount of time and energy this guy puts into crafting the playing sheets but also doing the upkeep on this organ. Jeez louise.
