In Seventh Sojourn, The Moody Blues used, besides the Mellotron, a similar keyboard called the Chamberlin; both were created by Harry Chamberlin. The newer device simulated orchestral sounds more realistically and easily than the Mellotron. Seventh Sojourn reached #5 in the United Kingdom, and became the band's first American chart topper, spending five weeks at #1 to close out 1972
For Team Baldwin: On this day, October 12, 2009, part 2: "The middle son in Philippe de Clermont's brood of three male children, Baldwin had been made a vampire in Roman times and had been Philippe's favorite. They were cut from the same cloth--fond of war, women, and wine, in that order." A DISCOVERY OF WITCHES. Music: the Rolling Stones, Sympathy for the Devil. From Deborah Harkness.
