EXOTIC MOOG (LTD ORANGE LP)
An ode to the Moog - first ever reissue of the 1969 Martin Denny album. Limited edition of 1500 copies on orange coloured vinyl for RSD 2020.
Exotic Moog is the glittering grail for both Martin Denny collectors and Moog fans. There really is nothing else like it, and the LP is very much in short supply. The Moog in this case is one of the earliest synthesizers, which is more like a wondrously imaginative computer from a 1950s science fiction film than the more "realistic" synthesizers of today. Mostly because of the Moog's difficulty and sharp differentiation from traditional instruments, Moog records of the late 1960s tend to be disappointing musically. That is okay, however, because the camp value can be extraordinary -- the various beeps, clicks, and sprongs take even such warm tunes as "Spanish Flea" into the cold depths of space. Fortunately, the exceptional Exotic Moog ranks highly musically, almost on a par with the incredible work of Moog pioneer Jean Jacques Perry. Get this oddity if you can. The Inventor of Exotica/Cocktail Music goes Electronic/Moog. First time ever reissued. Originally released in 1969. "Exotic Moog" starts off our reissue campaign of Martin Denny classics coming out in 2020. Colored Vinyl. Audiophile pressing at RTI. Limited to 1500 copies. [info sheet from distr.]
