Klaus, a skilled and innovative sound engineer, eventually cast aside his trusted solo Hammond organ sound and became the inventor of the ‘Pop Organ Sound’ by, at first, the simple combination of three instruments: Hammond, Lowrey & Wersi. His “Pops” albums assured his place on the world stage. This release is a perfect opportunity for those who have never heard some of his early LPs to enjoy selected tracks from them, possibly for the first time.
