A fascinating new book about  the John Compton Organ Co Ltd is now available on CD in pdf format. Over a decade in the writing thereof, it is a full history of the firm, drawn from knowledgable experts and enthusiasts from around the world and turned into a readable history for the first time. It covers most aspects of the Compton company, from the early days, the church organs, the cinema organs, the concert hall organs and the electronic organs. It also includes details of the things they made in addition to pipe and electronic organs, such as Link Trainer Aircraft during WW2, Light consoles for theatres and even space heaters.

The book is initially being sold on e-bay, but there are daily restrictions as to how many can be sold in one day.
For anyone interested, just go to e-bay and search under - Compton Organs.

The first 20 books moved very quickly, so it may be that a bit of persistence is required
