 CD Review: OHM: The Early Gurus of Electronic Music 1948-1980
Its purpose is to serve as an introductory primer to the history of electronic music, a single resource that brings together work from most every field, location, technology and period.
The variation and history is almost overwhelming as the music is created for a variety of reasons and through a variety of means.
Purists may complain of omissions (usually due to legal reasons) and that 15 of the tracks are edits, but the 3 discs are filled at nearly 74 minutes apiece, are in rough chronological order and definitely serve as an introduction.

 OHM : the early gurus of electronic music : 1948-1980
There are exceptions, mostly from those pieces which cleave closest to popular music, such as Raymond Scott's "Cindy Electronium" (1959) with its effervescent rhythm or Laurie Spiegel's "Appalachian Grove I" (1974), based on pre-Civil War fiddle music.
Holger Czukay, best known for his work with the group Can, is represented by a tape collage, "Boat-Woman-Song" (1969), which combines a droning pedal chord, a chanting women's voices and a sample (as it would be called now) from a choral work by Pierre de la Rue.
The linear notes are informative without pedantry and the design of the slipcase (including a translucent sleeve printed with a schematic of the wiring inside a theremin) is perhaps the most striking I've ever seen.

 Comments for Hooker, John Lee, The Legendary Modern Recordings 1948-1954 - WWW Music Database   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-26)
From the beginning of his career, {Hooker} recorded prolifically, sometimes for several labels at once, sometimes under a number of pseudonyms.
That makes his discography a bit difficult for the collectorto sort out, but if you want just one document of his early years, this is the anthology of choice, containing 24 sides from 1948 to 1954 thatwere issued on the Modern label.
These, more than any other, are the recordings that did the most to establish the {Hooker} protoype -- theoveramplified electric guitar, the moody boogies, the stomping foot rhythms, performed without a rhythm section (some sides featureaccompaniment by {Eddie Kirkland} on second guitar).

This is a somewhat hybrid work in which a female vocal trio acts in the manner of a present-day Greek Chorus embodied here by Salvation Army girls wandering about the stage and playing tambourine, bass drum and cymbals while narrating the events of the story.
The music is quintessentially American, tuneful, colourful and superbly scored, often alluding to some forms of popular music.
The music again abounds with catchy tunes, lively rhythms and many orchestral niceties; and is also often redolent of popular music of its time.

 Photographs from the Golden Age of Jazz: Gottlieb's Life and Work
Bartle collected international music magazines in which he read that jazz was America's greatest contribution to the arts, and he shared his interest with Gottlieb, often bringing along Louis Armstrong and Duke Ellington records when he visited.
Nevertheless, he was able to obtain memorable results because he knew the music, the musicians, and what he wanted each photograph to show.
By photographing Kenton's reflection in a broken mirror, Gottlieb created a visual translation of Kenton's "shattering" music, which was described as discordant, unconventional, and loud.

 George 1948 - About the Music
We thought it would be nice to show a few comments and reviews people have made about George and his music.
I learned that George is afflicted with Lou Gehrigs disease and had been creating his music using a Yamaha keyboard until he lost more and more movement, and finally using only one finger, was continuing to create music with his computer.
His music - in the electronic/dance genre - is interesting, appealing - very listenable.

 resistance is futile   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-26)
Music, for me, is inseparable from its history.
One reason is that sometimes music can be overwhelmed by associations attached to it after the fact, yet the ability to hear the music as if it were new is sometimes essential to making a recording interesting again.
As the dates in the subtitle reveal, those who think "electronica" was invented by the Prodigy couldn't be more wrong.

It’s also a remark that knocks the conceptual wind out of this set: Calling composers such as John Cage and Karlheinz Stockhausen gurus of electronic music seems too narrow and obvious after Eno’s provocative claim.
What we end up with instead is a solid beginner’s guide to the historical avant-garde side of electronic music.
From there, it’s just fill-in-the-dots: If you like the snippets of what you hear, you’ll want to seek out labels like Alga Marghen and Lovely Music who have been keeping the full-length versions of this stuff in print for years.

 DVD Review : Kiss Me Kate (1948): Music and Lyrics by Cole Porter: Film Music on the Web CD Reviews December 2003   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-26)
Cole Porter's 'play-within-a-play' Kiss Me Kate, based on Shakespeare's The Taming of the Shrew, opened on Broadway in 1948 and it was one of the first musicals to have over 1,000 performances.
In the M-G-M production, Miller was particularly memorable in the number 'It's too darn hot' (a song originally written for a fl male performer in the original 1948 stage version) and here rightfully, if less effectively, restored to the correct character (who himself was transformed into a white British butler in the film!).
For those Cole Porter fans who are content with just an audio realisation of this musical, I can enthusiastically recommend the EMI 2 CD set (CDS 7 54033 2 in UK; CDCB 54033 in USA) released in 1990 starring Josephine Barstow and Thomas Hampson.
