JE Many historians consider this to be the first true rock-n-roll record ever made though this is the subject of heated debate.
Despite their incredible influence, the discography of the band is quite short—they only recorded four full-length studio albums. Roky Erickson, the legendary guitarist of the band suffered from paranoid schizophrenia, which caused his career to take many twists and turns.
Eventually he was able to get effective treatment and the band was able to reunite in Erickson passed away on May 31, The Beatles famously recorded this album in a rush. They had only four songs recorded by the time the deadline was nearing and had to record seven songs in one day — a process that took nine hours and 45 minutes. Both mono and stereo versions are rare and valuable, but the stereo version fetches the highest price. The original UK version of the album featured a graphic of a white speaker with soundwaves emanating from it, set on a bright orange background.
The cover design was scrapped, replaced by the photograph of a loudspeaker in the middle of a desert that new wave fans are familiar with, but not before a few were printed with the old design. It goes without saying that these copies are extremely rare. There were only 16 copies of the second pressing of this compilation album.
As you might expect, this led to a tense legal battle that lasted several months. By the time Elvis Presley made Speedway , he was nearing the end of his acting career. The film was not well received by critics or at the box office. Rumor has it that only copies were printed. The agent assigned his case is played by none other than the beautiful starlet Nancy Sinatra, and the pair quickly fall for each other.
When it became clear that Capitol and EMI wanted no part of the record, which featured an overdub of philharmonic strings done by George Harrison himself, the Beatles decided to put it out themselves. The record was later given a proper release in , nearly half a century after it was recorded.
They can go for up to 5 grand. Bernie Taupin, who collaborated with John on many of his biggest hits was credited for penning the lyrics, though Elton John would later admit that John had written the song by himself. He gave Bernie the credit to help him get his first publishing royalties. If you think you may have a copy lying around somewhere, now would be the time to start digging. Though met with critical acclaim, neither the single or the LP sold particularly well at first.
Did you think classical music would be left off of this list? Record companies would often enlist the help of relatively unknown artists to provide the album art for their classical and jazz releases.
This particular album cover was drawn by a certain starving artist that was destined for stardom. His name? Andy Warhol. There are only seven known copies of this record in existence. Half soundtrack, half dialogue recording, this record was scrapped when Herman Wouk, writer of the novel on which the critically-acclaimed film was based, threatened to never allow the studio to use his work ever again if they released the album.
Wouk was furious at what he saw as blatant theft of his intellectual property, since the B-side of the record was a recording of the climactic courtroom scene, lifted verbatim from his novel.
Columbia agreed to halt the release of the album and destroy all copies. A few employees filched some copies before they were demolished — there are rumored to be close to a dozen that survived.
There were 25, copies of this single pressed. In a story that since become punk legend, the Sex Pistols terrorized their label so badly that they were dropped six days after signing the record contract in a publicized ceremony in front of Buckingham Palace. The very limited Australian edition on translucent vinyl is said to only have 50 of its kind — though only a small handful have surfaced over the years. The song references the assassination of Martin Luther King and the civil rights movement, but Bono says he could have better fleshed out the lyrics.
According to him, the Edge and producer Brian Eno convinced him that keeping the lyrics vague would allow the song to resonate deeper with non-English speakers. Rumor has it that Olivia Newton-John hated the way she looked in the picture printed on the front of the disc so much that she had the record company stop the pressing. Sometimes it appears as a melodic instrument played on the keyboard while other times it adds to the dense textures of percussive effects sprinkled throughout the album.
The Doors , Strange Days. Release date : October 9, Manzarek recounts in his own book about the Doors the session with Paul Beaver, who was demonstrating an endless variety of sounds to the group, had trouble going back to reproduce them again. So the band would stop Beaver when they heard something they liked and record it. No singles were released from the album that featured the Moog.
Release date : November 11, The record is a lot of fun because the Monkees succeeded in using some of the most spacey sounds they could conjure within the context of a pop song. Single, Vanguard Release date : December 9, This is an early single release from the marvelous Kaleidoscopic Vibrations album February , the electronic pop collaboration between Jean Jacques Perrey and Gershon Kingsley.
LP, Columbia CS Release date : January 27, This album was another great blend of Moog and rock, using the rock song format with a mix of tastefully crafted electronic music. Paul Beaver was a busy guy in Some of his most interesting work for the movies may not have actually made it onto a soundtrack record release at the time. A case in point is the Moog music he did for the John Boorman film Point Blank , the background musical score for which was copyrighted September 12, Beaver provided electronic sound effects and music.
I have heard a reissue of the original soundtrack but have not been able to confirm that an LP of this music was actually released in The Moog is used extensively throughout the film for music and effects. If I am ever able to confirm that this soundtrack was released in , it would surely make the top ten list of first Moog recordings.
