Well, I Didn't Know I'd Be Playing A Cathedral

You know a fitting way to send you waddling off towards the weekend? A little slice of pipe organ. You may have craved to have an afternoon soundtracked as if it were a Charlie Chaplin vignette, and I am here to help you see it through.
I cannot supply much information about Mr. Knaus, but I can tell you that some descriptions of his 10" organ work on Ebay include such praise as "RARE LP" and "GREAT COVER ART." This one does have great cover art. It was recorded on an old beast of a pipe organ that once was housed in "a large Chicago theatre." It's new home was the Trianon Ballroom on the south side, and that's where this was recorded. There's a housing project there now, but they say that if you listen real close, late at night when the blanket of midnight has draped the skyline, you can still hear the ghost of old Bill Knaus making his pipe organ harumph and chirp its way through old timey classics. Note: there's a slight chance that Mr. Knaus might still be alive, and if that's the case, I apologize for that last sentence.
