Product Description

Product Description

„X The first album from the pioneering duo of Jean-Jacques Perrey and Gershon Kingsley, recorded in 1966.

„X Allegedly the recording involved 275 hours of work and several miles of tape. These electronically modified sounds were combined with electronic sounds from oscillators, tone generators, and feedback loops to produce something approximating pop music.

„X All electronic musicians, from Stereolab to Timbaland have a debt to these early electronic experiments.

HASH(0x8e89c4a4) out of 5 stars Really Way Out! 9 Aug. 2000
By A Customer - Published on
Format: Audio CD
I heard this album 20+ years ago. I was able to pick it up in vinyl. But when I found out it was re-released on CD, I had to jump at the chance to own it.
If you like earlier synthesized music such as Switched On Bach, (the original version,) then you'll love this.
Unlike a lot of the music from this era of synthesizer infancy, this CD is really cool! It's not just a bunch of funky sounds and wierd noises jammed together. Created in a painstaking manner with an early synthesizer and recorded with natural sounds, it's fantastic!
If you like any type of electronic music, then this MUST be a staple to your collection.
Enjoy it! I know I will.

HASH(0x8ea1330c) out of 5 stars A Trip Back...From Way Out 19 Aug. 2000
By A Customer - Published on
Format: Audio CD
All you need is this CD, a studio full of kids, a truckload of toys, and you've got all you need to do your own version of the 1960's kiddy-TV show, "Wonderama." Lord knows, this album brought back memories of being a PopTart-fueled youngster planted in front of the idiot box on a 1960-70 suburban NY living room rug, watching Sonny Fox/Bob McAllister.
I dare you not to recognize at least *one* song on this album. TV stations often used snippets as the audio portion of a "bumper" (what you see on tv between when a progam cuts to commercial and when the commercial begins).
If, however, you are not into 60's style experimental electronic music, you might find yourself saying, "Oh my God, I thought I'd *finally* forgotten that song twenty years ago! "
The rest of us however, will find ourselves wearing a wistful, nostalgic smile.

HASH(0x8f1ac0e8) out of 5 stars Hello, kidhood! I love this album, but here's a better buy: 13 July 2001
By Steve Dallas - Published on
Format: Audio CD
I also loved the off-the-wall, electronic magic of this album on Uncle Zeb's Cartoon Camp in Tulsa, but cannot recommend this album to buy when such a superior value exists elsewhere on this site. Click "all albums by Perrey and Kingsley" over at the left, then select "The Essential Perrey and Kingsley", which contains this entire album, plus another 14 ear-tickling tracks, for only 72 cents more. That's the album I'm ordering now.

HASH(0x8e6a9dd4) out of 5 stars Excellent Moog of the Era! 7 Mar. 2005
By K. Brown - Published on
Format: Audio CD
Of Gershon Kingsley's Moog-Work, I would by far pick this collaboration with Jean-Jacques Perrey over Kingsley's "Music to Moog By" any day. While Stan Free's one man band "Hot Butter" is still my top pick of Moog music from the 60s-70s era, "The In Sound from Way Out" is one delightful & kitschy listen.

Where Stan Free did straight musical Moog covers of popular music, Kingsley & Perrey become playful with sound effects acting as musical notes; everything from cartoonish computeresque buzzings to Space-Age bleeps to a junilant baby's giggle. If you're one of the many folks these days who like to throw retro-martini parties complete with smoking jackets, shriners' caps, Hawaiian grass skirts, bowling shirts and bongos, than I can say without a shadow of a doubt that you have found the perfect soundtrack for your fiesta. Don't delay! This album is way-hep!

HASH(0x8f1c4588) out of 5 stars For me, this has always been the Acme of Space Age Pop. 14 May 1999
By A Customer - Published on
Format: Audio CD
I'm delighted to discover this album is back in print. Alumni of SUNY Buffalo from the mid-1980s (and assorted hangers-on, such as myself) might remember many of the selections from this album, as they were frequently featured as part of "The Barnyard In Orbit" on low-power station WRUB-AM. (Of course, this was in the days of vinyl, and the album was a slightly-scratched thrift-store discovery, but the songs remain the same.)
By the way (if Amazon will allow me to point this out) another CD that's also available here, THE ESSENTIAL PERREY & KINGSLEY contains this album (THE IN SOUND FROM WAY OUT) in its' entirety, *and* an additional 14 tracks. (One of them, "The Savers," went on to become the original theme for the game show "The Joker's Wild" during its' original network run. Another, "Baroque Hoedown," you'll recognize if you've ever been to Disneyland. Many others are strange and bizarre cover versions of songs you'll recognize.) THE IN SOUND FROM WAY OUT is a sentimental favorite, but THE ESSENTIAL PERREY & KINGSLEY is a better value at more-or-less the same price.
