Some may believe that George Harrison was a somewhat underrated Beatle, but he really was one of the more sophisticated members. His ashes were cremated in a traditional Hindu service in India, which went hand in hand with his beliefs as a human - love and peace, I guess.
Upon its release back in 1969 the otherworldly Moog soundscapes of 'Electronic Sound' went down like a bucket of cold sick with your average Beatles fan, and marked the end of their short-lived avant off-shoot label Zapple. But Harrison's work here is visionary and like Morton Subotnick's 'Silver Apples of the Moon' released the year before, should be considered pioneering electronic music.

Appreciable for its historic contribution to the recording industry and avant guard "muzak". You can't sing along, there are no songs, rhythm or danceable beat. But you can experience the dawn of the Moog Synthesizer, a programmable instrument that could play itself. Remember, this was made before the days of computers back in 1969. This album is an experiment, and to be honest, an endurance test. If you "liked" John & Yoko's UNFINISHED MUSIC series, then you will intellectually enjoy this album.
