The latest compilation from the consistent Soul Jazz camp celebrates some of the far-sighted, space-obsessed pioneers of electronic music. It boasts not only cuts from synthesizer-doodlers of the '60s and '70s, but also "mid-'70s proto-new age gurus and 1980s, DIY-era guerilla artists. It's packed with thrilling curiosities and eccentric - but still fantastic sounding - tracks from artists that all but a handful of knowledgeable collectors have forgotten. While some may be familiar with Beverley Glenn-Copeland, few will have heard the musique concrete experiments of Tod Dockstader, the deep space synth-scapes of Tim Blake, or the ensemble antics of Mother Mallard's Portable Masterpiece Group, the world's first all-synthesizer band, which was put together with the assistance of Robert Moog.
