Release Info: EMIL RICHARDS-NEW SOUND ELEMENT "STONES", LP, 1966, USA
Booted a little while back in an edition paired with Hal Blaine's wild "Psychedelic Percussion" this drop dead staggering proto-electronica classic from a fellow session drummer in circulation around the same time as Blaine comes on in a technicolor blaze of absurdist electronic merriment and just doesn't let up. Tom Dissivelt, Perrey & Kingsley, David Vorhaus and Mort Garson are the best frames of reference here, with Dissavelt's classic "Electronic Music" LP under the Electrosoniks moniker being the most accurate touchstone for the wildly percolating and cartoonish tuned percussion and electronic popcorn zipping around the stereo field here. Utterly and completely essential.
