That is the Boom Boom Room's beat-up 1950's-era Hammond all the way.

I'm glad you like! I'm sad that the band broke up before getting a really good clean recording (and performance!) of those songs.

I realized that was the show where I screwed up the vocals on the chorus. Thom had in a rehearsal a day or two before changed the lyric to "got my soul in stone", but I was still singing it as "got my soul in chains" which was the first draft. You can hear him singing "STONE" loudly over me, as if to remind me of the new lyric... guess I coudn't hear him, sorry Thom.
