Release Date:03/31/2017;Notes:Limited triple 180gm red, white and blue colored vinyl LP pressing including digital download. Raymond Scott (1908-1994) was a renowned bandleader, composer and pianist from the 1930s to the 1950s. Many of his playful riffs, originally recorded from 1937 to 1939 by the Raymond Scott Quintette, are genetically encoded in every earthling, having been adapted by Warner Bros. Music director Carl Stalling in over 100 Bugs Bunny and Daffy Duck cartoons. (These themes were later featured in The Ren and Stimpy Show.) The rediscovery of Scott's original novelty jazz recordings led to a belated reappraisal of Scott's timeless and long forgotten genius in the 1990s. During Scott's career as a popular bandleader, there were reports of an alter ego - inventor, professor in the lab coat, electronic music pioneer. But little of this work received public exposure. That changed in 1997 with a reissue of Scott's 1963 Soothing Sounds for Baby (SSFB) trilogy. These albums, largely overlooked upon their original LP release, contained gentle, all-electronic sonic companions designed to calm and delight infants. In retrospect, however, Scott's pioneering and little-heard explorations of synthesized rhythmic minimalism and low-key ambience foreshadowed the subsequent conjuring of Terry Riley, Phillip Glass, Kraftwerk and Brian Eno. Most of Scott's works were performed on vacuum tube- and transistor-rigged music machines which he designed and built. Now, Music on Vinyl presents a new edition of MRI in a triple LP set, including full track notes, a historical overview, and newly designed covers. The package contains an 8-page booklet and printed inner sleeves.;Track List:1. Manhattan Research Inc. Copyright;2. Baltimore Gas Electric Co;3. Bendix: 'The Tomorrow People';4. Lightworks;5.
