The Electronic Concept Orchestra - Moog Groove (1969)


I found this little gem for 50 cents at this little resale shop near my house! Like many times before, it was the cover that caught my eye, then the word "moog", and finally the songs. I'm really getting into the moog sound lately - really groovy! Makes me wish I had some orange or green shag carpet and big throw pillows all over the floor. I'm definitely going to have to look for more albums with the moog sound!

1. Aquarius

I ripped a Lawrence Welk album from 1956 that contains much of the same personnel as his Christmas album from the same year. The record is not featured on another blog or commercially available. The record also contains songs from another interest of yours based on several "celebrity vocals" postings. (However, it does not feature "celebrity vocals" as such.)

Despite the less than pristine condition of the album, the vintage variations of now classic songs demand to be heard. I was able to clean the files to a reasonably listenable form.

If you are interested, I would like to provide a link in a comment and ask that you evaluate it for a possible feature on your blog.

I look forward to your response in a comment.

Thanks for your all your shares.

As long as you are going for the 70s style, don't forget to do your walls in "Navajo White."

All apartment walls were done in Navajo White and all appliances were "Avocado Green."

Gotta keep with the times.

Thanks for the great posts

The only problem with the early days of the Moog was that they (the producers) thought this was a sound unto itself.

Most of the early Moog albums featured heavy Moog and only light accompaniment. This made it sound like a college physics class project.

Later the Moog was used along with rich orchestrations. This is when it stopped being a "modern, hip now" kind of instrument, and became a respected part of the band.

Keep up the god work.
