Moog!

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.

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.

Wow! I can't believe I found this album( "Moog; Claude Denjean and the Moog Synthesizer" )on the net! This is the record that got me hooked me on Electronic Music as a kid. Hokey as hell I know, but I love it. Does anyone know if this recording is available on CD? If so,from who? Did Mr.Denjean do anymore of these Moog Synthesizer records? If so,are these also available on CD? Just seeing that album cover brings me back to 1970. Thanks for this Electronic "blast from the past"! (06-06-2002)

The Moog has, and always will rule... but with the exception of this album... pure dreck... a Horrid example of 'Moog Music' (06-01-2002)

Someone mentioned "Moogworld" internet radio. It's for broadband connections, since the music is a 56k stream (too much for a 56k modem without alot of skipping).

I run a very similar Internet radio station called "Synthstream" that should work with any dialup modem! Check it out here:

If you like records like Moog! by Claude Denjean (which is in our playlist!) you'll like Synthstream. Enjoy! (05-27-2002)

My dad bought this back in about '72 after he heard it demo'd through a big Klipsch/Macintosh high end rig.

I spun the old LP the other day on my system for my 15 month old and she stood there in awe for a minute, then loaded her diaper during the bass of "kiss him goodbye". (05-15-2002)

I've got a copy of this album on vinyl. Its ace, the best Moog based album by far. I agree with P.Webb this album should be re-released, it's a classic. (03-15-2002)

Rick (Rif5150@yahoo.com) says:
Impressive. Very impressive. I first got interested in Moog by way of Wendy Carlos. Great stuff. I've always enjoyed experimenting with synth sounds. Some of my original music albums have these on tape. Some is tonal and some is atonal. Write if interested. (03-14-2002)

The selection isn't complete, but it's pretty damned good. And if you have any files moogworld doesn't have PLEASE supply them to him. I've given all the Tomita albums, some Perry, Kinsgley and a bunch of other stuff, so should YOU!!!!!!

moog afficionados... check out my site www.condsc.com for the latest installment of my vinyl project that features a rather rare track by harry breuer and jean-jacuqes perrey from the album 'the happy moog'. what a find! any way... revel in the squelches reminiscent of perrey's 'moog indigo' days over a freaked two minute romp.

cheers. (12-18-2001)
