Hot Butter Popcorn
Musicor Records MS 3242
The song Popcorn was first recorded/released by Gershon Kingsley (Music To Moog By - Audio Fidelity AFSD 6226 - 1969). The song was re-recorded in 1971 by Kingsley's band First Moog Quartet. Stan Free, a member of that band, then recorded another version that is featured on this album.
Musicor spared no expense in producing this jacket. The popcorn image is printed and embossed on the cover. An actual theater popcorn box (complete box, flat) was then fixed to the cover.
The music is simple 70s electronic (moog). Free understood the limitation of the sound and created an album with a sense of humor.
