Peter Sjardin - Changes (1982, NL, psychedelic)

Cassette recording of a never released lp for Universe (L54) by Peter Sjardin (Group 1850). 25 Test pressings were made in a white sleeve. The last 7 minutes are missing, they didn't fit onto the compact tape... So there still remains something to long for.
Peter solo on the 'organiser'.

1 Changes [8:59]
2 Weather report [10:17]
3 Night of the frogs [3:26]

Side two:

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]

Kurtis Blow - Christmas Rappin' (1979, US, rap) 
Tuesday, December 11, 2007, 06:06 PM - Music, - US, English
This was the first Hip-Hop song released on a major label. Kurtis recorded this with the help of producers Robert Ford and J.B. Moore. They took it to Mercury Records, who signed Kurtis to a 2-single deal, under the condition that If both singles were successful, he would get an album deal. This was the first single, and it did very well. The second single was "The Breaks," and it became the first rap song to be certified as a gold record, selling over 500,000 copies. Kurtis got the album deal and became the first rapper signed to a major label. (www.songfacts.com)



Side one:
1 Christmas Rappin' [8:12]
2 Do It Yourself Rappin' (instrumental) [7:37]

Side two:
1 Nervous (vocal) [5:23]

Urbanus - The Scratchin' Zwaantjes (1984, BE, scratch/fun) 
Wednesday, December 5, 2007, 06:21 PM - Music, - BE, English
Around 1983 scratching was a hype. Every artist who was old fashioned had now the chance to become modern again by making a scratch hit. You could expect a record to make this movement a bit ridiculous and at the same time making some money. Kris Kastaar did this, using samples of the popular Belgian comedian Urbanus, who also made the cover.

The Assembled Multitude (1970, US, muzak) 
Sunday, November 11, 2007, 08:29 PM - Music, - US, English
Why this lp is made is a mystery to me. Tom Sellers had a hit with Overture from Tommy. And here he covers in the same way more pop tunes with his Assembled Multitude. Wanted to sell his own two songs included on the album? Then the choise of the other titles is somewhat strange: not really middle of the road, but the way he treats them is.
I love the sound of the trombones. And you can't ruin I Want You (She's So Heavy), not even the Beatles themselves, nor George Benson could do that.
Rhino (who else) sells this record, but only in Windows Media Audio format. ???
Why the &^%$ in WMA?



Side one:
1 Overture from "Tommy" (A Rock Opera) (Peter Townshend) [2:27]
2 Woodstock (Joni Mitchell) [2:14]
3 Where the Woodbine Twineth (Tom Sellers) [2:36]
4 Ohio (Neil Young) [2:07]
5 Singalong Junk (Paul McCartney) [1:46]
6 MacArthur Park (Jim Webb) [3:32]

Side two:
1 The Princess and the Soldier (Tony Hazzard) [2:31]
2 Twenty Four Hours from Tulsa (Burt Bacharach - Hal David) [2:31]
3 While My Guitar Gently Sleeps (George Harrison) [4:08]
4 Mr. Peppercorn (Tom Sellers) [2:29]
5 I Want You (She's So Heavy) (John Lennon - Paul McCartney) [4:19]
