Ingenuity In Sound - Buddy Cole

The Breeze And I
Ingenuity In Sound
A New Sound Technique For Dual Hammond Organ
Buddy Cole
Stereo Workshop Series
Exploring Uncharted Patterns Of Sound
Warner Bros. 1442

This album is one of a series of "stereo workshop" LPs WB released featuring abstract cover graphics printed on foil. The design suggests, to me, that there might be some abstract, conceptual or experimental music on the disc. But that has not been the case so far (I've found three or four samples in the series).

That let down aside, this Buddy Cole album is a very good early 60s light space age pressing that seems to be made more to compete with the sound that was coming out of Command records at the time. The engineering is excellent, the stereo separation is well done, the sound is rich and you'll find a number of your favorite lounge titles on the track list.
