Tuxedomoon - What use (1980, US, new wave) 
Thursday, November 16, 2006, 06:06 PM - Music, - US, English
What I can see on www.berlinwerk.de the 5th release of Tuxedomoon. 'What use?' is taken from their album 'Half mute'. 'Crash' is beautiful music to watch beltways by and recorded with a little help from members of The Sleepers.

Gil Trythall - Country Moog (1970, US, electronic/country) 
Wednesday, October 25, 2006, 06:17 PM - Music, - US, English
It was Berend Dubbe of Bauer who draw my attention to Switched on Nashville.
According to him this is gabber country.
Very funny and it's amazing how Mr. Trythall could make these sounds with a Moog synthesizer.



By the way, Bauer does a concert with the Metropole Orchestra in Paradiso, Amsterdam, on the 14th of November 2006. If you have the chance, go and see them, they are superb. From an earlier performance you can watch the video's Blissfully Up and I'm No Prototype on YouTube.

Mechanical Man (1978, US, electronic/new wave) 
Monday, October 23, 2006, 06:11 PM - Music, - US, English
Mechanical Man really is Devo.
I think these are demo sessions, maybe even a real release of Mechanical Man before they called themselves Devo.
And put on the market with a cheap sleeve that says Devo when they became well known.
A collectors item these days

2 - Blockhead

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.

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

Electronic Concept Orchestra - Moog Groove (1967, US, electronic) 
Sunday, October 8, 2006, 04:30 PM - Music, - US, English
The Electronic Concept Orchestra made three albums: Moog Groove, Cinemoog and Electric Love. All containing Moog versions of popular songs. I got Moog Groove from Feddo (thanks), my mate in old psychedelic music. It is a pressing from 1969.
I think The Electronic Concept Orchestra was not a real orchestra, it was Robin McBride as director, Eddie Higgins on Moog and other keyboards and a bunch of studio musicians.



My lp is a bit scratchy and the noise reduction software works more on the synthesizer than on the clicks. So I post mp3's that I've downloaded a while ago.

Side one:
1 Aquarius
2 Oh Happy Day
3 Hey Jude
4 Both Sides Now
5 Grazing In The Grass

Side two:
1 Feelin' Alright
2 Penny Lane
3 Atlantis
4 Rock Me
5 Windmills of Your Mind
