Great—listened twice already. And with poignant backstory—really superb quality track.

Loved it! great story behind the track! Huge fan as well. My favorite was and still is Keith Emerson!
Excellent track!

Thank you a lot Steven!
Keith Emerson was my next favourite and again it was my brother who introduced him to me (Pictures at an exhibition) and he still is one of my “giants”!

well done. i still remember when my uncle introduced me to DP -himself a huge hendrix fan- he wanted me to hear Ritchie Blackmore but i was more intrigued by Jon Lord (i think it was Child in Time)

I had a lot of guitareros around me worshipping all the “fastest”, “loudest” and best players and no one could understand my love for keyboards.
Child in time still gives me goose bumps! The tune and the organ sound are like an “ear tattoo”!

Yeah, he was my first “best organ player in the world” too. It was surpsiingly affecting when I heard that he died. Thanks for the nice memorial.

Thanks a lot for stopping by!

“It was surprisingly affecting…” is very well said! I hadnĀ“t heard for decades new music of Jon Lord and the news about his dead touched me the way you described it!

Thanks again and all the best!!!

I’m a lifelong Jon Lord fan and saw him perform live on a number of occasions. The tragic thing about Jon’s untimely demise was the fact that after his departure from Purple he wrote some beautiful classical works including “To Notice Such Things’ which turned out to be his most poignant work. Who knows what he would have gone on to create if life had not dealt him such a cruel hand. Yours is a really nice tribute to a great musician of our time. Respect to you.
