Nice comp. I don't know too much about these vintage moog albums, but your comp is a nice introduction to the variety of stuff out there. Thanks.

Yes it is tremendous. The whole album can be found here:

He has made a bunch of other albums but I don't have any of them.

thanks for that!

by the way, are you into koji kondo at all (composer of a lot of nintendo music such as mario bros. and zelda), or anyone of his ilk (whatever that may be)? i've been looking for some downloadable albums but haven't had any success. i figured you might be into this stuff what with the strong melodies and such.

I actually found another Mort Garson album, which you may notice that I have posted. Also, I have been able to track down Koji Kondo's (wonderful) music from Zelda Ocarina of Time. I probably won't post it if it's still being sold in stores so I'll look into that, but even if it is I can send it to you via email. Shoot me one if you're interested:

Somehow, I knew before I played it what the unknown tune in your mix was. I have no idea how I knew, but I did. So, I clicked play and there was one of my favorite tunes ever ever ever!

Dick Hyman: Alfred the King of Disco. This was a toss away tune on an old disc Organ Magic; A Reader’s Digest Boxed Set. It is one of the coolest tunes I have ever heard. It is the most played tune I have along with, believe it or not, Kate Bush's, A Deal With God; Air's, Alone in Kyoto and Erik Wøllo's Prism.

Go here to learn more about this amazing piece of organ music:

As for your mix, it is great except for Alfred the King of Disco. Only because whenever I hear it I have to move!

Anyway, thanks so much for all the great tunes.

Thank you very much Crimson Crow. I thought I'd never figure out what that song was. I'd imagine I originally got it off the space age pop website and completely forgot where it came from. Thanks again!
