In the mid '80s, the owner of the LH585 "De Witte Merel" Jan De Coninck (†) released four cassette tapes of his Hooghuys organ. He recorded them himself, and although the inserts mention "super stereo", the quality is far from satisfying. Some tunes are even cut off at the end of one side.
Nevertheless, these cassettes contain an interesting repertoire, with arrangements by Charles Hooghuys (CH), Romain Charles Hooghuys (RCH), Marc Hooghuys (MH), August Schollaert (AS), AP (Arthur Prinsen), F.Stal (FS) and Jan Kees De Ruijter (JKDR).
