Wide World Hits - The String-A-Longs

Black Is Black
Wide World Hits
The String-A-Longs
Atco SD 33-241

Here's an interesting "synth" album. I'm not a know-it-all when it comes to this type of music. So I couldn't begin to guess at the equipment used to create the sound. The only hint from the back cover is: ...electronic gadgetry and multi-track recorders.

The entire record demonstrates a primitive, almost oddball, electronic vibe.

The String-A-Longs brief wiki page.

It's been brought to my attention that this album is probably some sort of covers album as The String-A-Longs disbanded in 1965. Their wiki page doesn't mention this album.
