Omega Four, The
Use It Or Lose It
The Omega Four were a groovy Hammond organ instrumental 4 piece outfit playing all the classics from the world of KPM along with the best in Hammond featured bands since. From Booker T & The MGs via Brian Auger, through to the James Taylor Quartet and right up to Corduroy. With many of the tunes being used for popular TV programmes in the 60s and 70s, the band got a reputation for being a TV theme band. This was entirely unintentional but rather just an affirmation of the classic tunes the band loved. Featuring the cream of Edinburgh musicians including former Groove Tunnel Hammond player, Rod Spark, the recordings featured here were originally intended only for the ears of prospective horn players prior to auditioning them. Luckily, events conspired to bring these recordings (warts and all along with chatting which gives an insight into the world of The Omega Four) into the public domain and allow everyone to enjoy. Many of your favourite TV themes are represented along with other classic Hammond grooves. Perhaps with a little persuasion we could get the band to come back to repeat some of their legendary and most groovy performances.
