Tom Dissevelt-Fantasy in Orbit,LP,1963/7,USA

Some of the earliest electronic recordings were produced, in the late-1950s and early-60s, by Netherlands-based composers/keyboardists Tom Dissevelt and technician Kid Baltran (born: Dick Raaijmakers). Their 1957 debut album, Song Of The Second Moon, included the groundbreaking electronic composition, "Sonik Re-entry". Although they continued to collaborate on an album, Glas in 1958 and a seven-inch single, "Electronic Moments" in 1959, Dissevelt had replaced Baltran with another technician when he recorded his 1964 album, Fantasy In Orbit.
Dissevelt's subsequent solo compositions were compiled and released as Intersection: Orchestra And Tape Electronics. As of 2003, Dissevelt was working on a CD overview of Dutch popular and applied electronic music from 1956 to 1966. ~ Craig Harris, All Music Guide

THANK YOU for posting "fantasy in orbit"! i found a copy of this lp a couple years ago, and the music is really fun, but my copy skips and it is too painful to listen to. can't wait to hear the music without the skips. and of course, it is wonderful that you are bringing this obscure but excellent record to wider attention.
