Notes

Recorded between February and October, 1972. All songs published by Rondor Music.

Instruments:
Custom built Hammond C-3 Organ, RMI Electric Piano & Harpsichord, 2 x Mini-Moog Synthesizer, Mellotron 400-D (Brass/Strings/Flutes), Mellotron 400-D (Vocals/Sound Effects/Vibes), Steinway 9’ Grand Piano, Frequency Counter, Custom Mixer.

In addition to the above instruments a Thomas Goff Harpsichord and ARP Synthesizer were used. All sounds put through two Steoreo Leslies, Fender Duel Showman Amp & two JBL Cabinets. Also used a custom built Oscillator, Fuzz & Wahwah Pedal and Binson Echo Unit. The organ on ‘Jane Seymour’ was recorded at St. Giles, Cripplegate.

Hymn at the end of ‘Anne Boylen’ which is 'The Day Thou Gavest Lord Hath Ended'.

This album is based around my interpretations of the musical characteristics of the wives of Henry VIII. Although the style may not always be in keeping with their individual history, it is my personal conception of their characters in relations to keyboard instruments.

- Rick.
