The Synthesizer - Featuring Dick Hyman at The Moog

The Synthesizer
Featuring Dick Hyman at The Moog
Command ABC Records RSSD 968

This Command/ABC label set features two discs are sandwiched into a standard single jacket rather than a book-fold jacket.

Packaging may have been down scaled because many of the tracks are repacked from earlier Hyman albums including Moog: The Electric Of Dick Hyman (1969) and The Electric Eclectics Of Dick Hyman (1969). And a few tunes, like the one I posted as a sample as best as I can tell, are available only on vinyl.

From the back jacket: "Re-produced for Two-Fer's by Don Thorn".  I'm not sure what that means in terms of what may or may not have been altered from the original release(s).

Reissues or not... great stuff from the early years of the moog.
