Claude Denjean demonstrates his Moog skills on this Phase 4 Stereo Spectacular.
Some guys take a traditional record, throw in a few notes from their Moog Synthesizer, and call it a Moog album. Not Claude Denjean. The Moog takes center stage in this 1970 London Records release, in all its raw beauty.
Electronic music never quite "made it" into mainstream culture -- that's probably because it took so much work to produce these albums. For all its wizardry, the mainframe-sized Moog could only produce one sound at a time. Artists like Claude Denjean recorded track after track, probably sitting up late into the night hunched over Moog keyboards and sixteen-track tape machines.
Sounds like these might seem ordinary in today's world of digital sound manipulation, but I try to imagine how radical and exciting the Moog must have seemed in the 60's and 70's before everyone had MIDI cards and polyphonic Korg synthesizers.

Everything You Always Wanted to Hear on the Moog, Music To Moog By
I am willing to transfer your old Moog LP's or cassettes to Stereo CD's at no charge. I simply want to rebuild my library.
I am also seeking Enoch Light recordings under Command and Project 3 labels, plus any London Phase 4 Movie Spectuculars under Stanley Black.
I have a home studio with a direct drive turntable, and a professional mastering deck and a PC editing suite.
I have also been archiving LP's and cassettes into 48 khz - 20 bit PCM, with scanned jacket covers as BMP files and line notes as RTF text files for sometime. The safety discs can be later re-opened and converted into CD audio or future PCM formats with no loss of quality.
