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.

Anarchic System - Pop Corn (1972, FR, electronic) 
Wednesday, September 27, 2006, 06:12 PM - Music, - FR, English
A vocal version of this well known tune by Gershon Kingsley.
Tomorrow more about Pop Corn and Kingsley.

I bought this single for two euro in a little restaurant in Amsterdam: Latei. This a place at de Zeedijk 143 which not only is a restaurant, but also a second hand shop. Everything you see, including the furniture, you can buy.

The Sound of Criss Cross - Classics Moog Indigo (1973, FR, electronic) 
Saturday, September 23, 2006, 07:40 PM - Music, - FR, English
The coming weeks I try to upload an electronic record every day.
Electronic for me means synthesizers, sound effects, weird noises.
Once a week an lp, the other days singles.

Today I start with an lp with popular classic melodies performed by an orchestra and an arp synthesizer, not a moog as the title might suggest.



Side 1:
1 L'Arlésienne (Ouverture) [2:47]
2 Sonate XI [2:39]
3 Le Tambourin [2:31]
4 Le Barbier De Séville (Air De Figaro) [2:31]
5 Danse Norvégienne N° 2 [2:46]
6 Guillaume Tell (Ouverture) [2:28]

Side 2:
1 Sonate Pathétique (Adagio Cantabile) [3:38]
2 Marche Turque [2:14]
3 Habanera (Extrait De Carmen) [2:44]
4 The Fifth Season [2:40]
5 Badinerie (Extrait De La Suite En Si Mineur) [2:16]
6 Symphonie N° 40 [3:21]

All arranged by 'Johnny Glider'.
More odd than good.
