Doc Severinsen and The Now Generation Brass - Doc Severinsen's Closet (1970, US, Big Band) 
Monday, October 31, 2011, 04:52 PM - Music, - US, English
I mainly bought this lp recently because it includes a big band version of The court of the Crimson King. The rest of this record is also not bad, big band wise.
It reminds me of the Quincy Jones lp Walking in Space: the music ranges from trippy to kitschy.
The recording contains covers of the Beatles and Beach Boys as well.
I wonder how it managed to escape from my attention for 40 years...



Side one:
1 The court of the Crimson King [7:31]
2 Bottleneck [3:14]
3 Surfer girl [2:44]
4 Give me just a little more time [2:57]

Side two:
1 Footprints of the giant [9:42]
2 Power to the people [2:55]
3 Abbey road medley [6:06]

Gershon Kingsley - Much Silence 
Thursday, March 18, 2010, 01:31 AM - Music, - US, English
After a very long time, finally a real music upload again. I do it more or less to get some attention (at least I hope getting it) for my new travelers site. See the banner on the right, look at the cute creatures, can you resist clicking on them?

About the share:
This is not the happy and cheerful sound Kingsley made in cooperation with Jean-Jacques Perrey. On this record just slow piano pieces or, as he calls it, electronic New Age music. If you listen very carefully, you can sometimes hear bits of Popcorn, although in a much slower tempo.
Not For Sale, as the back cover states.



Side one:
1 Illumination [5:17]
2 Beyond destiny [5:36]
3 Quiet descent [6:59]
4 Infinitude [5:07]

Side two:
1 Eternal moment [5:56]
2 Rim of vision [5:30]
3 Much silence [3:37]
4 Reconciliation [4:34]

Burnt Noodle - Next Exit (2006, US, psychedelic) 
Tuesday, May 12, 2009, 12:55 AM - Music, - US, English
Paul Lamb sent me a cd of his band Burnt Noodle. A real gem. Very nice 1969 improvisations, based on well composed songs. Most tracks start with a song and ends in a long improv. Listen to it. I can hear influences of Jimi Hendrix (Electric Ladyland), Amon Düül II, Doctor John the Night Tripper and Ginger Baker's Air Force.
There are even videos on YouTube: Jim Meets the Space Aliens and Day by Day.



1 bipolar [6:01]
2 day by day [5:24]
3 on & on [10:54]
4 road flick [8:35]
5 uncap your brain [6:32]
6 jim meets the space aliens [14:54]

I wish more people would send me cd's like this one...

Fashion - Product Perfect CD (2008, UK/US, new wave) 
Sunday, November 23, 2008, 11:38 AM - Music, - UK, - US, English
In an old post I gave up hope to ever get the first fashion lp on cd. To my surprise Luke James, the singer of the band, mailed me a couple of weeks ago that he was releasing this cd.



There are different (single?) versions of Fashion and Bike Boys on the cd.
You can buy it from his MySpace page http://www.myspace.com/fashionlukesky for only $10 + $2,50 p&p.
He lives in California now, the lucky bastard.

1 Product Perfect [3:51]
2 Die in the West [4:13]
3 Red, Green & Gold [4:49]
4 Burning Down [3:33]
5 Big John [2:01]
6 Hanoi Annoys Me [2:56]
7 The Innocent [2:30]
8 Citinite [5:22]
9 Fashion [2:53]
10 Don't Touch Me [2:59]
11 Bike Boys [5:27]
12 Technofascist [3:39]

A rare tracks cd has soon to be followed, as a cd with brand new songs will.

Walter Murch - THX 1138 (1970, US, not electronic) 
Monday, January 21, 2008, 12:45 AM - Music, - US, English
This is *not* the official soundtrack of Lalo Schifrin.

I recorded the sound of this first movie of George Lucas on my tape recorder with a microphone near the tv speaker when it was broadcasted on television, around 1973 I think.
I listened to this beautiful futuristic soundscape again and again. Till my tape recorder broke and was replaced by a cassette deck.

Some years ago THX 1138 came out on dvd, and it had a special feature: the soundtrack without the actors voices. A pity was, that also the voices of the electrogod and robocops were removed, which were essential for the atmosphere to me.
So I made my own mix where I brought back the voices of the cops and godmachine. I divided this mix more or less into the chapters of the movie.



Another extra on the dvd were comments from Walter Murch you could jump to during the film. I extracted these explanations, removed the ehh's and ahh's, added some sound references and included them too.

Jerry Goldsmith - Logan's Run (1976, US, electronic) 
Tuesday, January 1, 2008, 02:50 PM - Music, - US, English
Not many shares last weeks.
The work it takes is not in balance with the fun it gives anymore. So don't expect a lot of new stuff the coming months.

This post consists of audio rips from the electronic parts of the movie Logan's Run. A lot of the score contains synthesizer sounds. I converted the ac3 to mp3 and made up the titles at my own discretion.
According to the Internet Movie Database, Jerry Goldsmith is the composer. He used the ARP 2500 and did also the music for The Twilight Zone, Planet of the Apes, Star Trek, Chinatown and The Boys from Brazil.



1 Opening Titels [2:26]
2 Ride to Arcade [0:19]
3 Carrousel / Runner [5:29]
4 Circuit [0:31]
5 Cubs [0:29]
6 Debriefing [7:08]
7 Ride to Cathedral Plaza [1:22]
8 Love Shop [1:58]
9 Surrogation [6:36]
