Keys on Aoxomoxoa

Does anyone know who exactly plays what regarding keyboards on Aoxomoxoa? I'm a burgeoning Deadhead and I can't really differentiate Pigpen and Tom Constanten's respective styles. The organ on "China Cat?" The harpsichord on "Mountains of the Moon?" No idea.

Probably mostly TC... He's the one who could actually "play". Mountains of the Moon is definitely him.
Pig switched to playing congas around that time, see the Playboy After Dark clips on YouTube.

I don't know if you noticed, but on the credits, TC is listed as keys and Ron McKernan is listed as Pigpen. ( ... 0056-2.jpg) Definitely one of my favorite alltime records. You should seek out the original mix. It's a lot better, especially What's Become of the Baby, a piece I love.
