I always loved this song by "? and the Mysterians".<br /> <br /> And I LOVE the semi-cheesy sound of the keyboard being used! Can anyone tell me what it is?<br /> <br /> 6

I always thought it sounded like a Farfisa - the cheesiest of cheesy organ sounds.

Great link. Thanks for posting!<br /> <br /> SO... I guess it's still a mystery as to what was really used on the song when it was recorded...?<br /> <br /> Another wonderful "cheesy" sounding organ I LOVE is the one used by The Animals on "House of the Rising Sun". I consider that keyboard solo to be the best in R&R history. It starts at 1:40 in the link below where Alan Price is playing a VOX.<br /> <br /> Who can tell me if the recording was done with the same VOX or one like it? <br /> <br /> 6

Eh.<br /> <br /> After years of fiddling with organs, I've found that I can get a crappy sound out of almost anything.

"Who can tell me if the recording was done with the same VOX or one like it?" <br /> <br /> <br /> It looks like "Alan Price performed the solo on a Vox Continental."

Keeping on track with older 60s keyboard tunes...<br /> <br /> I always liked the organ solo in 'Never My Love' by The Association.<br /> <br /> What keyboard does that sound like to y'all?

Can't answer your question on the keyboard, but what a GREAT tone!<br /> <br /> That song is my all-time fav slow song.<br /> <br /> 6

I&#8217;ve got a couple of Korg and Roland keyboard synths, and the funny thing is: They all have multiple patches named after these classic sounds, but they don&#8217;t give a single clue as to the original instrument name! One really has to be a student of this genre in order to understand the nomenclature.<br /> <br /> &#183;&nbsp;&#8220;96 Tears&#8221;<br /> &#183;&nbsp;&#8220;Rising Sun&#8221;<br /> &#183;&nbsp;&#8220;Pompeii&#8221;<br /> &#183;&nbsp;&#8220;Light My Fire&#8221;<br /> &#183;&nbsp;&#8220;Summer In City&#8221;

"That song is my all-time fav slow song."<br /> <br /> I'd put it in my top 3 with 'Whiter Shade of Pale" and "Whiskey Lullabye."

I just picked up a Farfisa organ model fast 2. In researching this organ I found a Farfisa web site which indicated that "96 Tears" was played on a Farfisa.

I still have a Farfisa Compact Mini that our church was throwing away. It has a slight phantom note that plays all the time but it is fun to play with.<br /> It sounds good though a Leslie.
