Was at the local goodwill today and came across this record. I had no idea what it was, to be honest I just bought it for the great sleeve - who wouldn’t want a record with some old timey composer in front of a synth system? Turns out the musician is a fucking legend. She was one of the developers of the Moog synth, composed music for Tron, A Clockwork Orange and The Shining, won three grammy awards not to mention undergoing transition in the 60s. So anyway, a round of applause for Wendy Carlos!

@syrinx That record is absolutely legendary for its role in legitimizing synthesizers as serious instruments. Great find!

@roadriverrail Right? I had no idea what it was, but after a little research I feel very good about the 99 cents spent on it
