Pressed on audiophile-quality 180-gram vinyl at RTI from lacquers cut by Chris Bellman at Bernie Grundman Mastering using the original analog album master, this meticulously and faithfully reproduced edition will mark the first official hi-fidelity vinyl reissue of this groundbreaking electronic album since its original release in 1970. Sonically adventurous, Moog Indigo is a kaleidoscopic array of sounds delivered with imagination and a playful sensibility. Perrey's approach blends funk, lounge, and the avant-garde in a meticulously arranged tapestry of Moog, tape loops, and ondioline. An absolute must-have for vintage electronica heads, space-age pop enthusiasts, producers, audiophiles, and all fans of adventurous pop music.

Despite this, every Moog Indigo song is densely created. By this I mean, there is no filler. It is great (at time hilarious) listening from beginning to end. It possesses an authentic 60s sound of experimentation with no programmed drums of today.
My further advice however, is to stay away from Perrey's latest efforts with Dana Countryman. I find Countryman has kind of hijacked Perrey and added his own nerdy goofyness to Perrey's latest CDs. If you google Perrey's website it is the Countryman stuff that is being promoted. The new stuff just sounds too polished, programmed and rip-off-ish.
Moog Indigo is a great CD. With my order I also purchased "The In Sound From Way Out!". This CD was even better! (It also made 4 years prior to Moog Indigo.)
The other important track that links to the future is Jean Jacques Perrey's classic "E.V.A" track which is perhaps the MOST SAMPLED song of the last decade! He wrote that 30 years ago by cutting and splicing magnetic tape (old fashioned sampling) and then you have all these Hip-Hop (House of Pain, Gangstarr, Pharcyde, Lord Finesse, Dj Krush) heads sampling his tracks over and over!
I know I get funny comments when I take this CD to work but it's strangely connected to everything else, much like a GIANT loop! If you know your Hip-Hop history and DON'T have this one...you better check it!
My personal favorite is "Gossipo Perpetuo," it correlates exactly to how I feel life is today.
