    Fascinated by the orderliness of sounds and machines, Raymond Scott composed and produced his innovative, eccentric, electronic music for commercials, films and his own amusement in the '50s and '60s. In assembling this overview of Scott's oeuvre, this lavish double album writes an important chapter in his life and career, defining his place in electronic music's history.
    The research that went into this project (in large part by Jeff Winner and Gert-Jan Blom), is lovingly mirrored in the remarkable 144-page full-color hardbound book that houses the two discs. There are rare photos and documents, numerous interviews and essays, and nothing is superfluous. The overall effect of the entire package is to create a portrait of a unique, creatively driven artist.

  • Critic Reviews
    Spin (9/00, p.185) - "...69 love songs to commerce and the space age....The music is both archaic and 'tres moderne'..."
    The Wire (6/00, p.57) - "...Scott's flair for invention suited an age for car batteries, electric-powered toys and bright new chemical products. By using it to bring a gloss and sparkle to prevailing notions of progress, he helped drag electronic music out of the laboratory and into the home..."
    Mojo (Publisher) (6/00, p.101) - "...Comprises generally abstract [electronic] experiments; space-age ad jingles...sonic experiments with tape loops and new instruments, or bleepy soundtracks for futuristic theme parks....A work of art in its own right..."
