THE MELLOTRON BOOK
Frank Samagaio's book about the Mellotron IS NOW
I just picked up mine (3/15/02) at a nearby Barnes and
Noble. "The Mellotron Book" is also available from the following web
ArtistPro - Amazon -
Barnes and Noble
|Pictures (many from this web site, plus some archival)|
|Interviews with Mike Pinder, Rick Wakeman, Ian
McDonald, Wooly Wolstenholme, Tony Visconti, David Kean, and others|
|A history of the instrument and a list of the sounds|
|A recording list|
|Many pages by regular contributors to the Mellotronists
It's a short book and will be a quick read (somewhat along
the lines of Vail's "Vintage Synthesizers" in layout/format), and it's great
that Frank was able to capture the thoughts of some of those 'tron users who are
familiar to many of us.
