MOOG ! Claude Denjean and the Moog Synthesizer

Moog - Claude Denjean

Yes indeed – here we have a nice one – I have seen this sitting unloved and untouched for the past couple weeks on my local thrift-shop shelf of discarded plastic – not really wanting to pick it up due to over-exposure of cheese-coated early synth-disasters – stupid or what – turns out to be nothing short of a true-classic – and 50-english-new-pece well spent ..

The track listing is a real mix of late 60s poppers played to fine effect by a deep-full-on monster-moog sound.   

From the meandering-filter-sweep heaven that is “Everybody’s Talkin'”, a disco-romp-workout of “Na na hey hey kiss him goodbye”, a psychedelic-drug-fest of “House of the Rising Sun, not forgetting a creepy bass-driven “Come Together” – an excellent samplers delight of 1970 synth wig-out…

Hunt and buy !!

  1. no argument on this one – a true classic! – i actually have two copies of it: the UK Decca version and a gatefold edition on London records, made in canada.

    and guess what? i found a decent copy of the Jeff Love ‘Close Encounters’ album just this very morning.

  2. I gather he has 2 other LPs out also on Decca (Phase 4) – need to get hold of them for sure …

    Jeff Love is the man – picked up his ‘Latin with Love’ the other day – nice …….

  3. i have two other denjean albums – Open Circuit (1973) and Moods (1977). I also have Latin With Love. i am completely out of control with this vinyl thing.

  4. Tell me about it – I think I might sell off all the rare old punk, glan and disco – and replace all the stuff on the shelves with dog-eared thrift shit ..

  5. […] In The Still Of The Night 27. Rose Murphy – I Can’t Give You Anything But Love 28. Claude Denjean – Come Together 29. Derek Cox and his Trio – […]
