MOOG BREAKBEATS

As a tribute to Robert Moog, the recently deceased inventor of the modern synthesizer, SRI (Sonic Reclamation Industries) offers you some rare, ripped from out-of-print vinyl, late '60s-early '70s funky fun: a free download album called "Moog Breakbeats" available

here.

It includes the Les Baxter song The Beasties Boys sampled for "Intergalactic," one tune featuring Herbie Hancock (on piano), appearances by Enoch Light, Martin Denny,
Herbie Mann, Hugo Montenegro and many others. Blast off! And thanks again, Bob.

UPDATE 6-16-07: back on line!

I love you!! First I sit around and collect old vinyl and listen to it with my friends. Then I get a little older and discover Napster. Years pass inside some sort of digital mirage that passes for reality born of musical isolationism. Eventually I find ripped vinyl on the web. all is well once again. Thnx ;)

My gawd you have John Keating's Space Experience on vinyl - the very first record I bought when I was 12 years old. I could not remember the name of it but could visualise the cover. WOW

Thanks

Lovely. BUT, you need "I walk the Line" sung by the Switched on Moo-g. Uhm, and maybe some switched on Buck Owens. But that aside I really dug it.

Fantastic! A fitting tribute to Bob Moog. Some great tracks I'd have never heard otherwise. Thanks!

I have a copy of the MOOG GROOVE album that's badly worn out from overplaying. It was great to get part of it back again, in pristine condition. Would love to see the rest of it posted.

There are tons of great old MOOG records you just can't get anymore. Moog Power, Ragnarok.. the list is endless. More of the same, please!

Great stuff - thanks for posting it. I'm having trouble with the Les Baxter Rachmaninoff piece though. I've tried downloading a few times and it plays back garbled - is the mp3 encoding messed up? All the other songs play fine...

Not sure what the problem is with Les Baxter. It plays fine on my home computer, but not on my work one. I actually re-recorded it off the vinyl again so if it's still not working I don't get it. Maybe try another computer if you can - buy a friend a beer or sumthin to use their comp.

Great to hear from you-all, thx. Anonymous said, "There are tons of great old MOOG records you just can't get anymore. Moog Power, Ragnarok.. "
I do think Hugo Montenegro's "Moog Power" did come out on CD. But, yes, Moog CD reissues are a drop in the bucket.


"Tragoedia" - I've got that in the archives somewhere. Pretty interesting, tho def. not pop, more in the avant/abstract noise bag.
