    The Great Stalacpipe Organ

    The Great Stalacpipe Organ, is it still the only organ made of solid rock?
    Has it led to a cavern-us movement of underground players,
    or has it become a global vault for the eternal crypts of concert players?
    Was the first forefinger bone from the left hand of Beethoven moved here?
    Is that a natural lime deposit, or was Amadeus Mozart moved in?
    The secrets of the caves in Luray, Virginia, USA, need to be revealed.

    Any interest in this rare and rarely played recording will find a reply.
    Right now, I'm going to search for news and comments from critics.
    Stone cold fingers on stone cold keys, sitting on a stone cold bench.
    This vinyl is as groovy as it gets.

    There is so much to read and hear, just clicking once on the first reference page.
    Despite heroic attempts to teach me how to upload, or download, a You Tube video,
    cutting and pasting is as good as I get.

    The first link is a five minute You Tube video by "TravelsWithCookie",
    that explains the history and shows video action in the cave.

    The next link is "Moonlight Sonata", or "Sonata in C# Minor", by Ludvig Von Beethoven,
    as played on The Great Stalacpipe Organ, with no video action, just a cover graphic.

    Accessing this You Tube page will show other compositions and players.

    It must be a wet and drippy, or rainy, mood all around tonight.
    The first artwork I finished in my new residence is about a rainy Lake Erie shore in the dark.
    Hey! Even though I put these up in members art, I can't just let these photos go.

    I recommend staring at the center of the painting and letting your eyes go,
    to see if it envelops you as the larger than eyesight scene it is.
    The close-ups are here to show the detail of the rain and background.
    The original is 30" wide and 26" tall.
    And outside in the city, the real atmosphere is minus sixteen degrees.
