Dick Hyman On The Moog Synthesizer - Strobo / Lay, Lady, Lay mp3 flac
Written-By – Dick Hyman. B. Lay, Lady, Lay. Written-By – Bob Dylan.
from the introduction to an interview with Dick Hyman conducted by Michael David Toth, published on Cool and Strange Music!, issue 1997. from Space Age Pop Music. Housed in a company sleeve, the record offers exclusive mono tracks that are not featured on the two aforementioned Hyman's Moog albums released the same year.
Hyman took the Moog by the horns and milked it for all it was worth on nine originals, including the monster hit single "The Minotaur" (which inspired Emerson, Lake and Palmer's "Lucky Man"). The first few tracks are in a pop-song mold, but they are pop songs composed as only a jazz musician with two decades of experience under his belt could.

Moog: The Electric Eclectics of Dick Hyman ends with "Evening Thoughts," an impressionistic track reminiscent of "Ebb Tide" by Earl Grant, on which the sounds of the seashore are conjured up on various keyboard instruments. Hyman writes about his intentions for each track in the liner notes. Moog features three bonus tracks from Hyman's next album Age of Electronicus; his recasting of James Brown's "Give It Up or Turn It Loose" is well worth the price of admission. Though this album could easily be tossed into the novelty or "period piece" category, it was not originally intended as that. Hyman recorded a showcase what this new instrument could do, and in the process made an enjoyable album. download (mp3 @320 kbs)
Tell me this guy did not get beat up in school because of his name! Yet, somehow he managed to survive and become a prolific musician, multi-keyboardist, and film composer. The Legend of Johnny Pot is cheesy, too, but the songs have a retro appeal. In fact, you’ll hear some sounds and grooves that would be right at home on some modern lounge electronica. The CD wraps up with Time is Tight, probably the cheesiest track on the album. It’s Mooged out, and would be at home on the next Austin Powers soundtrack.
Recorded on Valentine's Day 1969, and released that summer, "Lay Lady Lay" became one of Bob Dylan's biggest hits, checking in at No. 7 on the Billboard chart, and hitting No. 5 in the . Aside from the warm and inviting melody, and somewhat racy lyric, the record was also notable for a change in Dylan's singing style. One of the best was The Plastic Cow Goes Moooooog by Melvoin. Along with takes on songs by Cream, the Beatles and the Rolling Stones, we find this Moog'd out version of "Lay Lady La. Cheesy? If you say so, but frankly, some of us still dig those Moogalicious sounds, cheddar or not.
