5.0 out of 5 stars The original and still the best. 23 Mar 2010
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Although a lot of water has passed under the bridge, I can still remember the first time I heard the Moog synthesiser. It was the "Switched-on Bach" album on vinyl. I then heard the Perrey and Kingsley recordings and the "Moog Plays the Beatles" album. The sound was so new and exciting I bought these albums and still have them. The inevitable happened and the synthesiser found its way into pop music, and in the hands of pop musicians became far less exciting and more hum-drum and ordinary and in some cases downright dull. It is therefore great to see these original recordings released on CD so that those who are unable to play vinyl recordings can experience these truly great performances. I now wait with keen anticipation for the "Moog Plays the Beatles" recording to be released on CD.

5.0 out of 5 stars More than I hoped for 12 April 2011

I actually have two of the original vinyl albums so I knew what i was buying. The CD has both those albums and more so its excellent value. This is a great look into the early production of electronic music which is fun and imaginative.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fun early synth album(s) 15 Sep 2011
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I owned three of these four albums on vinyl (The In Sound From Way Out!, 1966; Kaleidoscopic Vibrations, 1967; and Moog Indigo -- horrible pun (especially as it doesn't work -- "Moog" rhymes with "vogue"), great album -- 1970), hence my purchase of this compilation (as an MP3 download). They're cheesier than disco -- indeed, they're cheesier than a 500g bag of Cheese Puffs -- but that's part of what makes them such fun to listen to, in these days when we've all heard the much more sophisticated synth sounds of such as Jean-Michel Jarre, Wendy Carlos, Keith Emerson et al.

Such a pity that I can't determine what the first of the Jean-Jacques Perrey albums is, nor what year (I've guessed 1969) and that there are several errors in the ID3 tags, such as incorrectly tagging all tracks as "2006" (in fact, the first CD's tracks were 1966 and 1967, the second 1968/69 and 1970, the third 2001) and as by "Perrey and Kingsley" (the second lot were Perrey only, the third Fatboy Slim and Eurotrash) and the composer as "unknown" (most of the tracks on CD 1 were written by Perrey and Kingsley and on CD 2 by Perrey, except of course ones such as "Moon River"). I've corrected all of them in my downloaded copy, and also renamed the files to my preferred scheme of "<disc #><track #> - <title>.mp3" so that they sort correctly.

Still, it's great to hear this music again. Here's hoping that someday soon, we will see the re-release of two more early classic albums, Dick Hyman's "Moog" and Marty Gold's "Moog Plays the Beatles".

Format:Audio CD
Amongst the most sought after records of 60's electronica, until now virtually unobtainable. Is this truly pioneering music that would influence everyone from Kraftwerk (?), Stereolab et al through to the Fat Boy himself; or just 60's Kitsch based on flying saucers and re-worked classics, using the "new" technology ?
Who cares ! It's the "Out sound from way in" or the "In sound from way out" Either way, it's a must have set of classic albums that would set you back at least 120 to buy the originals.
A contender for box set of the year surely.

5.0 out of 5 stars Back to the future 7 Dec 2002
By anomj7t7 - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Ever notice how things that were made specifically to appear futuristic(like any average episode of "Star trek" for instance)end up seeming a million times more dated than anything else from that particular era? Well add this album to the list.And thats not at all a bad thing...the irony of the whole thing is a work of art in itself.Such warm and fluffy feelings of nostalgia coming from music that upon its initial composition was intended to evoke visions of the future.Electronic music has come a long way since the days of Analog...but when you hear that opening synth riff from "The savers" you'll find it hard to believe it's over 30 years old (despite the "Georgy girl-ish" melody of the main body of the song).Sure there's some throwaway tracks here,but that's more of a complaint to be lodged against the original albums from which this compilation was made from...It's this compilation in fact,which inspired me to give it five stars, based on the music alone I still would have given it four stars.This compilation is incredibly economical being that it contains 4 original albums by Perrey and or Perrey and Kingsley! The remix stuff by Fat boy slim or whatever is pointless of course (as is 95 percent of that kind of dance junk anyway) but who cares? This album is for all those people who were born before the 1970s and are still asking the question "It's the 21st century already! So where are all the flying cars and robot maids?" And are just a little bummed about it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Not for everyone, but probably for you 6 Nov 2011
By Jay L. Rudko - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
My first exposure to the music of Perrey & Kingsley was when a friend turned me on to "The In Sound From Way Out" back in 1966.
I was blown away by what could be done with tape, synthesizers (then a very new concept), and this interesting little instrument called the Jenny Ondioline. It was this same instrument, by the way, that carried the melody in Kai Winding's version of "More", back in 1963. The early synthesizers could only produce one note at a time, and were incapable of producing the multi-layered sounds that today's instruments can. So you can imagine how painstaking the task of recording, assembling, and splicing everything together to produce these songs.

This set puts, in one place, all of the recordings Jean-Jacques Perrey and Gershon Kingsley did for Vanguard Records. The first two albums, "In Sound" and "Spotlight On The Moog: Kaleidoscopic Vibrations", appear in their entirety on disc 1 of this three disc set. Both sound totally amazing here, the best I've ever heard them. I had a copy of "The Essential Perrey & Kingsley", but this blows that one away sonically. Also, the last track on "Kaleidoscopic Vibrations" was switched with something that had been previously unreleased. On this set, it's fully intact. All tracks, with two exceptions, are essentially novelty tunes. All the "beeps, pwaa-pwaas", and similar electronic effects, along with movement of sounds speaker to speaker, are there. The two exceptions take a more serious approach without all the fancy effects. Those tracks, "In Sound"'s "Visa To The Stars", and "Kaleidoscopic"'s "Pioneers Of The Stars" (the track that was replaced on "Essential"), are fitting end tracks for these albums. "Visa" is very reminiscent of the Kai Winding track mentioned above.

The second disc puts two solo albums by Perrey together for the first time. These albums, "The Amazing New Electronic Pop Sound of Jean-Jacques Perrey", and "Moog Indigo", follow in the tradition of the two albums collaborated with Kingsley. I'm not getting into track-by-track descriptions here, because you gotta hear 'em for yourself. The only one I'll mention is the final track from "Moog Indigo", which is called "Passport To The Future". This track, incidentally, was covered by The Ventures as "Skylab". This track is another fitting finale to the album, again more straightforward than the other tracks preceding it. In my earlier days, (Jeez, I'm making myself sound old), I used to send tapes to friends with music and narration on them, and the track I generally ended the tapes with was "Passport". It just worked!

The third disc in this set, which I must admit I haven't listened to, features remixes of several tracks by such "artists" as Fat Boy Slim and Eurotrash.

In summary, this is a set that you should listen to if you have a sense of humor and really want to hear what your stereo can do. Electronic music can really task a system's grasp on reality, since no one knows exactly what these sounds should sound like. But it's a fun listen, and I recommend it highly.

4.0 out of 5 stars A good collection. You're not going to get popcorn, tough... 13 Aug 2008
By steve_of_the_jungle - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I bought this collection, it's quite exhaustive and a good item for those who want to go back to this period from time to time. I do agree with the mention that it's gonna be tough to listen to it straight through. It's not that it's slow, I can listen to Music for Airports all day, it's that some of the structures become grating after a while.

Still, I recommend it, especially at this price.

One big disappointment is you're not going to get "Popcorn", by Kingsley. It was quite a hit in itself (although most are more used to the Hot Butter version), and it being missing here is disappointing. I guess it wasn't a Vanguard recording, as it isn't on any of the collections I can see.
