The aim of this blog is to introduce the readers to music that is out of print, commercially unavailable, released under a creative commons license, or with approval by the featured artist. The majority of the music posted here would be considered underground. Don't let that fool you into thinking that the music featured here might be any less enjoyable than that of the mainstream artists you hear on the radio, as this couldn't be further from the truth. Please keep in mind that the majority of the artists that appear on this blog, along with their respective record labels, are not wealthy and need your support. If you enjoy the material that you find here, please support the artists/labels by purchasing their material afterwards. If you are an artist/label that would prefer to have your material removed from this blog, simply leave me a comment, and I would be more than happy to promptly remove the offending post.

The Electric Moog Orchestra - Music From Close Encounters of the Third Kind

Someone requested this several months back. I was recently able to obtain a copy of this, and I'm all too happy to deliver it to you all. I've been on a bit of a moog synthesizer/library music kick lately, so I hope that those of you who visit this blog regularly aren't turned off by my recent ventures into these genres. Unfortunately there isn't much information to be found concerning this recording, or the Electric Moog Orchestra. That's fine however, because upon listening to this for the first time I realized that this is some of the finest freaked out moog synthesizer music that I have had the pleasure of listening to. What I do know about this album is that it was released in 1977 in the United States on the Musicor label. This is not the original soundtrack to Close Encounters of the Third Kind, which was performed by John Williams, but rather a re-recording using the aforementioned moog synthesizer. It includes the tracks "Space Symphony" and "Galactic Force" which weren't included on the original soundtrack.

Year of Release: 1977
Label: Musicor
Genre: Electronic, Experimental, Moog Synthesizer
Bitrate: 224VBR

Track List:
1. Main Title And Mountain Visions
2. Nocturnal Pursuit
3. The Abduction Of Barry
4. The Arrival Of Sky Harbor
5. Galactic Force
6. The Conversation
7. The Appearance Of The Visitors
8. Resolution And End Title
9. Space Symphony
