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".

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.

Supersister - Live in Baarn & Meerlo (1971/1972, NL, Canterbury)  
Sunday, October 15, 2006, 07:28 PM - Music, - NL, English
Again not electronic, but a self made cd. This time with live recordings of Supersister, made by Dutch broadcast company VPRO. Some singles are also included.

Two recordings are made at Midsummer Pop Festival in the village of Meerlo, Limburg, the south of the Netherlands. A small two days and a night festival, with all Dutch bands except for one unknown English act: Genesis. Great show.
Oh yeah, and there was Nico, she sung in the middle of the night, so I couldn't sleep.



The major and brass band of Meerlo opened the festival, the boy scouts did the entrance, the horse club the surveillance and the dog shit on my sleeping bag. All very innocent, you could buy all kind of drugs (including cocaine and heroine) all over the place. The festival had to stop halfway the second day because of the heavy rain and thunder.
In Venlo 2001, they showed a documentary of this festival, here you can read about it (in Dutch).



The photos on the cover are taken on another gig Supersister did in 1971 in the Youth Centre S61 in Roermond (also in Limburg, guess where I come from). I don't remember who made them. I developed the negatives and glued some test prints in my school agenda.

UPDATE:
I found a photo negative where I wrote 'Supersister 9 april 1972, photographer: Tabe Jorritsma'
