Boomkat Product Review:
Brace yourself, this is every bit as foolhardy and preposterous an undertaking as the title suggests. In 1971 electronic arranger and academic Gil Trythall was commissioned by a particularly adventurous record company exec for this frankly insane album of Nashville hits, reconfigured for the Moog synthesizer and a host of other old fashioned electronic goods. The inevitable sequel arrived in 1973 with a similarly starry tracklisting of country chart toppers and standards, and here for your listening pleasure and convenience both volumes are compiled onto a single disc. 12-bar shuffles like 'Kansas City' get a thorough trouncing at the hands of Trythall's bank of electronics, while Johnny Cash's 'Folsom Prison Blues' works out rather well, boasting some charming Jetsons-esque space-age sounds and an inadvertently creepy vocoder sound. The slow jams often come off most favourably, in particular the Jimmy Webb all-time classic 'Wichita Lineman'. The sound design is skilfully rendered (synth strings in particular), but some of the phrasing on the bloopy reworking of the vocal melody is a bit tepid... what am I even saying? You know full well what all this sounds like. You'll probably want one.
