Solid gold reissue of Raymond Scott's timeless classic Soothing Sounds For Baby Vols 1-3 gets given a fresh vinyl press across three slabs of wax, a pivotal set of recordings from 1964 that acted as the blueprint for the 70s output of Brian Eno, Kraftwerk and Tangerine Dream!!!
For those who haven't been paying attention, original copies of Soothing Sounds For Baby have been trading hands for stupidly high prices for years now - if you can find them. Released as three individual LPs back in 1962, Music On Vinyl put them together and gift us all with a three vinyl package for the music’s 55th anniversary. If it wasn’t obvious enough from the title, each track is a meditative exercise in ambient electronics up there with the very best sound scientists who set out to explore these sounds.
A true minimalist workout by an artist who was so far ahead of his time that over forty years later people are discovering and falling deeply into his charming, truly forward-thinking sounds.
