Claude Denjean —
Moog! ... LP Phase 4, 1970. Near Mint- Gatefold ...
Claude Denjean's always been one of our more favorite moogy artists, and this LP's a really nice batch of 60's covers done in a very moogy way, with little or no backing behind them. Tracks include "Venus", "Raindrops Keep Fallin On My Head", and "Everybody's Talkin'". Nice version of "Nights In White Satin", too. LP, Vinyl record album
One of the most memorable Esquivel albums, and perhaps the first record that really let him hit his fantastic mix of off-beat orchestrations and spacey electronicized production! The arrangements are splendid, with echoey piano lines in the front that seem to trail off into the stratosphere. Behind them, the orchestra swings in a tight rocket-fueled way, soaring and dipping to match the oddly arranged piano lines. Titles include "Playfully", "That Old Black Magic", "Speak Low", "It Had To Be You", and "Night & Day". Plus, the cover's got a groovily attired model, hanging out in a very green lunar scene!

(Living Stereo pressing with deep groove. Cover has some wear.)
