But the Skids still are better!

The last post of Pandora's Music Box 1983 recordings.
One of the best bands in Europe at that time. A shame they didn't really made it in the UK and USA. Listen to this performance, live they are even better than in the studio.

Arno Hintjens - vocals
Jean-Marie Aerts - guitar
Serge Feys - synthesizer
Rudy Cloet - drums
Ferre Baelen - bass


5 songs, 18'26"

Barclay James Harvest - Live (1974, UK, symphonic rock) 
Saturday, September 15, 2007, 06:27 PM - Music, - UK, English
For the Mellotron fetishist.
I personally prefer these live versions. In the studio BJH could polish the sound and use symphony orchestras, which made the already mellow songs too sweet. Live they had to perform the music with keyboards (mellotron!), guitar, bass and drums. That made the sound rougher.

Les Holroyd: Bass guitar, Rhythm guitar, Vocals
Stuart Wolstenholme: Mellotron, Electric Piano, Moog, Vocals
Mel Pritchard: Drums

The Moog Machine - Switched-On Rock (1969, US, electronic) 
Tuesday, August 28, 2007, 06:46 PM - Music, - US, English
The Moog is played by Kenny Ascher, arrangements are done by Alan Foust and Norman Dolph produced & tuned.

Some liner stuff:
The amazing thing about all the sounds is not that they are done one voice at a time, but rather one finger at a time. The silly machine only plays one note at a time and the temptation play a chord must be overcome... you only get the lowest note if you press more than one key. Improvisation is difficult but far from impossible if you redefine the problem.
We, being faced with the limitations of the Moog as far as chords are concerned. built a gadget called the Protorooter that structures chords above the note the keyboard is playing to alleviate the problem somewhat.
Compared with the old cut-and-splice way of making electronic music, the Moog is a tune boon. As great as we feel the Moog is for making music in the light of what is possible and what Mr. Moog is no doubt cooking up, the Moogs of today are like the Kon Tiki. It takes quite a bit of physical tuning and set-up time to achieve the sounds, though once tuned they go down very quickly.

Moog himself is quite a guy, too. Most cooperative, and now has a weekly emissary to New York to touch up any fixits and keep everyone up on the new discoveries. Moog really made quite an invention — and how appropriately space-age his name is! How bland would be the "Jones" or the "Irving Spidor-sha" as a nickname for the gadget. If he ever comes to town for a lecture, go listen.
There is nothing like inventing a synthesizer to give you expertise in its use.
