Solution - Live in Oenkerk en Middelburg (1972, NL, Canterbury) 
Sunday, October 22, 2006, 06:09 PM - Music, - NL, English
Another self made cd with old live recordings of a dutch band.
Abroad not so well known Solution did a reunion concert this year.
They only played 1 1/2 songs of their first lp, the best one.
Here are 1 3/4 ;-) numbers of the first and two good ones of the second lp. Fever is not live, it is from the second lp and was left out on the cd re-issue.
Divergence is more well known in the version of Focus, called Tommy after the writer and sax player Tom Barlage.
Koan, though credited to Solution on their lp, is mainly The Koan of Big Jim Sullivan (alias Lord Sitar), available on his Sitar Beat cd. Pentangle also recorded it, available on the self titled cd as a bonus track.



1 Divergence [5:41]
2 Koan [9:28]
3 Trane Steps [7:59]
4 Fever [4:08]

Christopher Scott - Switched-on Bacharach (1969, US, popular electronic) 
Saturday, October 21, 2006, 09:35 AM - Music, - US, English
After the huge success of Walter Carlos with Switched-on Bach, a lot of Switched-on albums were produced. Finally there was an idea what to do with that expensive Moog toy. Here is one with a wink to the original.



In Japan this lp is re-issued on cd.

Side one:
1 The look of love
2 Alfie
3 Walk on by
4 This guy's in love with you
5 Wives and lovers

Side two:
1 Do you know the way to San Jose
2 What the world needs now is love
3 I say a little prayer
4 The April fools
5 What's new pussycat

This one you got as flexi disk with the Dutch new wave magazine Vinyl.
Almost each issue included a flexi.
The coming days I will post some more.



This track "Untitled" later appeared as "Sleep" on the B-side of "One Man's Meat".

Not shared anymore. Complaints received.

BBC Radiophonic Workshop - Doctor Who (1963, UK, electronic) 
Wednesday, October 18, 2006, 07:41 PM - Music, - UK, English
Very early electronic work for the mass.
Written by Ron 'did I write that' Grainer, but the sound was created by Delia Derbyshire and that was what made the tune famous.
There is a documentary about the BBC Radiophonic Workshop: Alchemists of Sound.



My copy is from 1964 and on the other side there is "This can't be love" by Brenda and Johnny; does anybody know why?

Not shared anymore. Complaints received.

Space - Carry on, Turn me on (1977, FR, electronic/disco) 
Tuesday, October 17, 2006, 11:50 PM - Music, - FR, English
Another commercial electronic record.
Space is mainly Didier Marouani and better known for their hit Magic Fly.
You can see the video of that song on http://www.space.tm.fr/videos-en.php with in the background the alpha version of Winamps Milkdrop visualization.
The cover is a still from this video.



Watch the drummer impersonating a rhythm box.
See the stand up synthesizer bully.

Pinker Tone - Louie Louie (1982, electronic/synth pop) 
Monday, October 16, 2006, 05:32 PM - Music, - ??, English
Nothing is known about Pinker Tone, the more is known about the song.
You can read everything you never wanted to know about Louie Louie and were afraid to ask at The Louie Louie Pages.



I don't think Pinker Tone has anything to do with the Spanish band The Pinker Tones.
