Claude Denjean - Moog! (1971, FR/CA, popular electronic) 
Saturday, November 11, 2006, 06:18 PM - Music, - CA, - FR, English
Space versions of popular tunes, mostly moog, some guitar, bass and drums. In my search from which country Claude Denjean actually is coming, I stumbled on a page of Nationaal Pop Institute (NL, now 'Beeld en Geluid') where it states that he arranged three lp's with songs of Annie M.G. Schmidt sung by Conny Stuart. Very Dutch.
Here I found the answer where he is coming from.
Denjaen made two other moog records: Open Circuit and Moods. All on Phase 4.



Side one:
1 Na Na Hey Hey Kiss Him Goodbye
2 Nights In White Satin
3 Sugar, Sugar
4 Raindrops Keep Falling On My Head
5 House Of The Rising Sun
6 Everybody's Talkin'

Side two:
1 Venus
2 Come Together
3 Bridge Over Troubled Water
4 Lay Lady Lay
5 United We Stand
6 Proud Mary

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.
