I hereby nominate 1960's & 70's moog master Mort Garson for inclusion in the archives. Early in his career he released a series of moog-based albums that explored the darker possibilities of the instrument. I regret that I do not know much about the man, but here follows the first four tracks from his masterwork Black Mass Lucifer.

Seconded. Seconded.  Here's a wikipedia article: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mort_Garson and http://www.spaceagepop.com/garson.htm

Garson's follow up to Black Mass Lucifer goes under the name Ataraxia and is called The Unexplained - Electronic Musical Impressions of the Occult

That's a good album too.

Wozard if Izz (feat. Nancy Sinatra) and especially Electronic Hair Pieces are pretty awesome too.

How early in his career was it anyway? He was born in 1924, and by the midsixties he had already played with Doris Day, The Sandpipers, Mel Torme, written a no. 1 hit (for Ruby & the Romantics) and conducted tons of easy listening albums .

Find a fly and eat his eye

... and I'm all for his inclusion, of course.

...from around '67 on. His career apparently didn't get started until around '63 or '64.
 
I just noticed there's another thread open here wherein Garson's album The Zodiac: Cosmic Sounds is being pushed for inclusion as a seperate artist...

I guess you're right, he started late (but the no. 1 hit is from 63, and the Doris Day and Mel Torme albums are from 64-65)

definitely yes for this one,  from that era it looks closed to Nik Raicevic's electro acid craziness.

thanks
