LIMITED EDITION 12-INCH SINGLE ON "POP CORN YELLOW VINYL" EXCLUSIVELY FOR RECORD STORE DAY!
Almost 50 years since its original release, the instantly-recognisable futuristic sound of 'Pop Corn' is back on "groovy popcorn yellow vinyl", exclusively for Record Store Day 2018!
Originally recorded in 1969 for 'Music To Moog By' by Gershon Kingsley and the Moog, the ground-breaking experimental album was a major influence on future electronica artists.
The newly remastered tracks feature the original stereo hit single A-side, its non-album B-side plus rare mono mixes prepared for American AM radio.
Both album and single were released on the pioneering Audio Fidelity label, famous for releasing the world's first stereo record in 1957. In 1972, 'Pop Corn' was covered by Hot Butter, which featured members of Gershon Kingsley's First Moog Quartet band and was a hit all over again, reaching No. 9 on the American Billboard chart, No.1 in Australia for 8 weeks, No. 1 in Switzerland for 10 weeks, No. 1 in Norway for 6 weeks, No. 1 in Germany and No. 5 in the UK. Similar success followed throughout the rest of the world, including France where it achieved almost 1 million single sales.
Charly Records are proud that 'Pop Corn' will launch a whole series of official, original Audio Fidelity singles and albums, beginning with a replica of the long-out-of-print rarity 'Music To Moog By' in June 2018.
From the original Audio Fidelity 1969 press release: "Audio Fidelity Records. believes Gershon Kingsley is a true genius and a worthy creative compliment to the electronic wizardry of Robert A. Moog, the creator of the Moog Synthesizer."
