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

Solution - Live in Oenkerk en Middelburg (1972, NL, Canterbury) 
Sunday, October 22, 2006, 06:09 PM - Music, - NL, English
Another self made cd with old live recordings of a dutch band.
Abroad not so well known Solution did a reunion concert this year.
They only played 1 1/2 songs of their first lp, the best one.
Here are 1 3/4 ;-) numbers of the first and two good ones of the second lp. Fever is not live, it is from the second lp and was left out on the cd re-issue.
Divergence is more well known in the version of Focus, called Tommy after the writer and sax player Tom Barlage.
Koan, though credited to Solution on their lp, is mainly The Koan of Big Jim Sullivan (alias Lord Sitar), available on his Sitar Beat cd. Pentangle also recorded it, available on the self titled cd as a bonus track.



1 Divergence [5:41]
2 Koan [9:28]
3 Trane Steps [7:59]
4 Fever [4:08]

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.

This track "Untitled" later appeared as "Sleep" on the B-side of "One Man's Meat".
