Help identifying a Manzarek keyboard
« on: March 09, 2021, 06:40:16 PM »
I was rewatching a clip of the Doors on Youtube playing Crawling King Snake in their rehearsal space for an Australian TV program.  Ray is playing his Gibson and Piano Bass but next to him was a keyboard I'd never noticed before or seen in any other Doors pics - it's not his Vox, although it appears to have reversed color keys, nor is it his RMI, Rhodes or Hammond. 

Here's a link with some times when you can notice, barely, the keyboard.  The last shot of it you can briefly see a logo on the back but I can't make it out.  Perhaps I could see it better on the DVD release it originally appeared on.

So weird...I just happened to go on Reverb.com, clicked on keyboards and the big banner photo at the top was a pic of the exact keyboard I was asking about.  After poking around I found out it's a Farfisa Professional.   

Now, does anyone know what LA Woman song it may have been used on if at all?  Texas Radio or Hyacinth House?
