Music To Moog By

Otherwise known as, 'Music to seduce beautiful girls by'. Give it a try today.

This beautiful Audio Fidelity release showcases Gershon Kingsley's considerable skill with the Moog synthesizer, covering such popular tunes as "Nowhere Man", "Scarborough Fair", and "Paperback Rider" (sic) along with six of Kingsley's original compositions.

In the 60's, an expensive stereo system, a bottle of wine and a record like this one were all you needed to properly secduce a member of your favorite sex. Sheila Benow, the artist who designed the cover art on Music To Moog By, must have known this -- yes, those are nipple flowers growing out of the Moog (click the picture for a closer look).

I don't know how many people actually used records like this in their intended fashion, but I'm single, I like wine, and I have a nice stereo system, so if you're an available female and you'd like to try it -- drop me a note.

Songs:

Twinkle, Twinkle (MP3) A psychedelic version of Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star. Just what you need when the LSD kicks in.
Paperback (MP3) Actually, it's the Beatles' Paperback Writer, misidentified on the album jacket.
Nowhere Man (MP3) Kingsley gets a little crazy on this Beatles hit, but what the hey? Live a little.

Hey this is actually quite good!! Kingsley probably deserves more credit than he gets for being a talented musician, and has had some influence on electronic music in general. Plus the BEASTIE BOYS ripped off one of his album covers for that "In Sound From Way Out" CD. Really, compared to just about anything else here, this is actually good! (10-14-1999)

Regarding the nipple flowers . . . those have got to be the YUCKIEST nipples photographed! Now I understand just the concept of a picture of a nipple on an album cover is pretty exciting, particularly in the days when Barbara Eden had to cover her belly button on "I Dream of Jeannie," and I do appreciate the artful cropping of the photos (especially the one under "BY"), but the nipples themselves look more like pimples, or rashes. Actually, they remind me very much of the pamphlet my pediatrician used to give me every year after administering the tine test for tuberculosis. If you tested positive, the marks left by the four tines on the skin inside your forearm would react by swelling and spotting . . . JUST LIKE THESE NIPPLES! But, again, just that Sheila Benow had the audacity to use nipples in this fashion is TITilating enough! (08-08-1999)

Anybody got a line on a Gershon Kingsley album called "Gershwin is alive and well and living underground?" I will pay for a minidisc copy of "Rhapsody in Blue" Also, on Columbia Masterworks from the early 70's, "Everything you ever wanted to hear on the Moog but were afraid to ask for" Thanks (07-05-1999)

Rick Fry (rickfry@lightspeed.net) says:
Not so much interested in this album. But, the one I am looking for is one he did with a guy named Perry. Kingsley was on the Moog and Perry played an instrument called the Jenny Ondioline. I could have sworn they are the ones that wrote the music that Disney used in their Main Street Electrical Parade for a lot of years. (02-23-1999)

(12-09-1998)

Captain Beyond says:
"Music To Moog By" is NOT available on CD, but the delightful "Gary Coleman Rolls Tinfoil Into Little Balls" is available, for the first time, on CD. This digitally mastered recording loses some of the resolution of the original analog issue but is close enough for those who could care less. (12-09-1998)

Joanne says:
So...Is Music To Moog By available on CD? Or any other form? I don't think we have any Salvation Army stores around here! (12-05-1998)

Captain Beyond says:
Did you know that moog spelled backwards is goom? Coincidence? I think not! (12-01-1998)

Jennifer (jnavarro@sfsu.edu) says:
My comments are this..... how can I get a copy of this? My husband and I live in the Bay Area and have been searching like crazy for a copy, but with no success. If anyone can help, please let us know. We would be so grateful. Thanks... (11-29-1998)
