David Robertson (who has posted on this forum as "Ozdoc") and I, both longtime members of this group, have been working for more years than we care to admit on a big, beautifully photographed hardcover book that pays tribute to vintage keyboards.   Electric pianos, Hammonds, combo organs, Mellotrons, Clavinets, Pianets, the Minimoog, and many others.  The book, "Classic Keys: Keyboard sounds that launched rock music," is being released late next month, and is available now for pre-order on Amazon and leading book sites world-wide. https://www.amazon.com/Classic-Keys-Keyboard-Sounds-Launched/dp/1574417762/

Want a preview?  Check out the book description, sample pages, "famous player" endorsements and other info at ClassicKeysBook.com.  And if you want to keep in touch with the latest on the book, Like us on Facebook, @ClassicKeysBook .

We look forward to hearing your reactions to our labor of love.

Alan (and David)
