Tom Dissevelt and Kid Baltan - Song Of The Second Moon

First released in 1957 under the name of Electrosonics and then re-released in 1968 under the name of the 2 composers mentioned.Very early primitive electronic experimentations!
Surpisingly forward sounding stuff, considering the time period - very abstract, not dated sounding at all. Recommended space.

A1 Kid Baltan Song Of The Second Moon (2:49)
A2 Tom Dissevelt Moon Maid (3:12)
A3 Kid Baltan The Ray Makers (7:22)
A4 Tom Dissevelt The Visitor From Inner Space (3:07)
B1 Tom Dissevelt Sonik Re-Entry (2:35)
B2 Tom Dissevelt Orbit Aurora (3:00)
B3 Tom Dissevelt Twilight Ozone (5:25)
B4 Kid Baltan Pianoforte (5:05)

Oh yeah, this is one of my faves.

...And you should know, this same music, slowed down as much as 50% in some cases, was used as the backing music for the Boris Karloff "Tales of the Frightened" albums.

There's also a second Tom Dissevelt album with very similar music, called 'Fantasy In Orbit'.
