Keyboard veteran Rick Wakeman narrates the history of what Jean Michel Jarre
called "The craziest instrument you could imagine" - the Mellotron. Featuring plenty
of sound clips including the first ever 'tron on record and interviews with Paul McCartney
and other musicians such as Mike Pinder, who worked at the Mellotron factory
before going full time with The Moody Blues.
