|Raymond Scott Three Willow Parkelectronic - Music From Inner Space 1961-1971 Limited Vinyl 3LP Set
The long awaited second collection of Raymond Scott electronica, Three Willow Park: Electronic Music from Inner Space, 1961-1971, features 61 previously unreleased recordings from the decade before Scott left New York to work in L.A. for Motown.
Most tracks were recorded on devices Scott invented, and his Motown Electronium is heard for the first time on disc.
The 3-LP/2-CD set serves as a companion to the Y2K collection Manhattan Research, Inc.
Many tracks feature hypnotic rhythms played by the Electronium—an invention which composed and performed using programmed intelligence.
That Scott produced beat-oriented proto-techno before the 1970s explosion of electronic music and rhythms on the pop charts is a significant achievement that should not be overlooked.
The LP and CD editions of Three Willow Park include extensive booklets with historical chronicles, photos, a timeline, family remembrances, track notes, and ephemera.
