“Raymond Scott was definitely in the forefront of developing electronic music technology, and in the forefront of using it commercially as a musician.”—Bob Moog

He was the musician behind most cartoons, and was widely featured in Looney Tunes and Merrie Melodies. The Simpsons, Animaniacs, and Ren & Stimpy all did homages to him. His music had crazy titles like Dinner Music for a pack of Hungry Cannibals, In An 18th Century Drawing Room, and Powerhouse. He was the bandleader behind Perry Como, and gave unique sounds for the early experiments of Jim Henson, which led to future success with Sesame Street. He made thousands of hours of recordings of experimental electronic music.

For this album, The Bran Flakes, The Evolution Control Committee, and Go Home Productions were each given access to the archives of the Raymond Scott estate, and each mixed 50 years of material into 6 compositions. Then all three worked on Powerhouse.

Raymond was incredibly ahead of his town, and his music still swings and grabs today. On the other hand, most of the electronic experimentation wasn't great -- Raymond recorded lots of material seeking good stuff. He never got around to filtering through it all. These three teams have done that, and introduce some great new material, mixed in with some of Raymond's more famous material.

Hillbilly Hostess in Haunted Harlem is a great one to sample, for the curious.

Highly recommended. This is my favorite CD purchase of all time.

I'm an old guy I don't like re-mixes, I like the originals ... BUT ... I love this!
Job well done, it's fresh and new but stil firmly rooted with its samples in the original, Scott himself dabbled in electronic music, I'm sure he would have liked it too.

The one issue that sticks in my craw is the lack of 'oomph' in the mix. If ever there was a time to compress the daylights out of it, you would think it would be on a project like this, but they don't. The result is that it sounds 'thin', it's not because the samples are lifted from discs from the 30s, the bas never really kicks, the drum don't shake the floor.

That said, I'd still recommend it.

Raymond would love this and only be envious that he couldn't have done it with yesterday's technology. It keeps the Scott legacy alive into the 21st century.
