Robert ByrneElectric Hair ... LP
Evolution, Late 60s. Very Good ... $5.99
One of the best versions of the Hair soundtrack you'll find on moog! Robert Byrne's cut some fine albums in his time, but on this little gem, he really grooves it hard with Galt MacDermot's funky score – using all the cool changes in the songs to riff out some great work on the moog. There's a great little combo backing him up, and they've got some tight rhythm that works well in juxtaposition to Byrne's moogy musings. Titles include "Hair", "Three-Five-Zero-Zero", "Easy To Be Hard", "Walking In Space", "Be In", "Frank Mills", and "Donna". LP, Vinyl record album

Lalo SchifrinRock Requiem ... LP
Verve, 1971. Near Mint- ... $7.99
A bizarrely baroque session – one that's a requiem "for the dead in the Southeast Asia war", and which takes the form of a hippy-dippy mass. Lalo's at the head of the group – leading musical performances by the likes of Tom Scott, King Errison, Mike Melvoin, Howard Roberts, Dennis Budimir, Emil Richards, and other LA studio hipsters, as well as a vocal performance by the Mike Curb Congregation, and lead singer Alexander Saint Charles. The whole thing's a lot more gospel hip than rock, and it's really a lot more like the kind of album you'd catch Galt MacDermot or David Axelrod recording than Schifrin. Titles include "Final Prayer", "Offertory Verse", "Sanctus Benedictus", "Agnus Dei", and "Introit". (Jazz, Now Sound) LP, Vinyl record album

TartagliaTartaglian Theorem ... LP
Capitol, 1968. Very Good ... $0.99
Sweet and dreamy instrumental pop from John Andrews Tartaglia – an arranger we only know from a few late 60s sides at Capitol Records – all of which are pretty great! Tartaglia's got a style that's still heavy in mainstream 60s easy modes, but borrows a fair bit from the generation of Galt MacDermot and Jimmy Webb – an approach that's initially straightforward, but which has some very nice dark corners – a bit in the mode of Nick DeCaro's work from the same period! A few tracks here feature a bit of moog, but even when there's no electronics, the instrumentation seems to hint at them – thanks to some very inventive orchestrations. Titles include "Poto Flavus", "America", "Like To Get To Know You/Give A Damn", "Wichita Lineman" and "I Am The Walrus". The album also has a version of "Abraham, Martin, & John" which pairs the voices of The Blossoms with a Moog! LP, Vinyl record album

Terminal BarbershopHair Styles ... LP
Atco, 1969. Near Mint- ... $6.99
One of the grooviest of the "Hair" tribute LPs, and an excellent batch of funky tracks from Galt MacDermot's classic score. Terminal Barbershop is really just a group of funky studio musicians that includes Jimmy Owens, Joe Farrell, and Pat Rebillot, and they play with a nice tight pop groove on tracks like "Air", "Walking In Space", "Frank Mills", and all the other big hits. LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has a cutout notch and some sun bleaching along the top.)
