Sweetly magical instrumental fantasia of flute, Optigan, twangy guitar and church bells - Magical Mystery Tour goes to the Haunted Mansion in 3/4 time.
Jonah's Song is an instrumental piece heavily informed by the unique sonic vocabulary of the Optigan, a home entertainment device from the 60's & early 70's that used discs of Optical film on which were recorded instruments and sound effects that were played on the keyboard of the organ-like body of the instrument. Along with sampled flute and surf guitar carrying the main theme forward, it paints a charmingly innocent and wistful mood which reflects the sweet nature of the beloved old cat for whom the song is named.
