From circa 1968 to 1972, there were a large string of albums played on Moog synthesizers. Many of them were versions of pop and classical songs played on that big modular beast. Most of this was pretty cheesy and dated, to say the least, but interesting. Walter (Wendy) Carlos' Switched-On Bach started it. And then you got albums like Gershon Kingsley's Music to Moog By, various other Kingsley albums, and albums from Frenchman Jean-Jacques Perrey (he also released a few albums with Kingsley as well). Not to mention Beaver & Krause. Pretty soon the Moog entered rock music. Simon & Garfunkle recorded "Save the Life of my Child" who I assume featured Paul Beaver on the Moog. The Beatles gave us Abbey Road in which several songs used the Moog. Then Emerson, Lake & Palmer really got serious with the Moog by going way overboard with Keith Emerson not only giving us the big Moog III-C, but several Minimoogs, and other assorted keyboards in his setup. But before that, some guy named Dick Hyman, who pioneered the use of the Lowrey organ released this album: Moog: The Electric Eclectics of Dick Hyman in 1969 on the ABC/Command label. The lunar module on the cover revealed that this album must have came out around the same time as the Apollo moon landing. Musically it's really cheesy, but that's what you expect from this kind of music. He also played the Lowrey organ. Although it's been a while since I heard this, the one stick out cut is "The Minotaur". Listen to this, and then listen to "Tank" off Emerson, Lake & Palmer's debut, and tell me that this particular cut did not have an influence on Keith Emerson's playing. A lot of the same synth sounds you hear on "The Minotaur", you hear on "Tank". Coicidence? While I don't say this album is a masterpiece, like many other Moog albums released from 1968-1972, this has its appeal and worth owning if you like this stuff.
