Re: terry riley's organ, Hammond looping

according to Bob Moog in an article by Freff, Riley used a Farfisa when "In
C" was presented along with "Switched-On Bach" at a press luncheon.
According to Peter Forrest, Riley later used a Yamaha YC-45D. An 
organ, indeed, and most un-organish in many respects. I use a YC-30 (the
single manual version) for looping and processing (like Eno did, too).
