Recently (2008), the Vox Continental used by John Lennon at the historic August 15, 1965, Shea Stadium concert, as well as the Beatles' August 13, 1965 appearance on The Ed Sullivan Show and on the studio recording of I'm Down, was auctioned for $182.500. The Analogues use another copy of this portable organ - used by the Beatles occasionally in the studio, for instance on She Said, Lucy In The Sky With Diamonds and by George Martin on Paperback Writer. Our good friend and recoding studio owner Rob sold his Continental - just before The Analogues started to perform The Beatles. We were baffled to find out that Rob was ingnorant of the fact that The Beatles had used this instrument frequently, and we were forced to redeem it from the new owner. Today, we have not one, but two Continentals.
