This album seeks to pay homage to the "concept LPs" that appeared in profusion during the rather exciting years of the fifties and sixties. For many of us, these early recordings developed our love for theatre organ—especially in locales where organs were but a memory or in rural areas where they never existed. And oftentimes, the cover art became an integral part of the listening experience—and certainly endeared the album’s "concept" to the listener.

The music Renwick has selected is not of one musical era, but each piece fits in the genre of quiet time for theatre organ. The selections showcase the organ’s tonal resources in a somewhat different way than musical programs based on the majestic "rise from the pit" method of album composition.

So put on your smoking jacket, pour a martini, and have Charles hold your calls. Take an engrossing trip into the magic of late night music—THEATRE ORGAN AFTER HOURS.  --John Clark McCall, Jr.
