"Perhaps the most influential recording in the history of electronic music, Song Of The Second Moon is far more than an historical curiosity. For the very first time electronic music was conceived as popular music, an incredibly listenable mélange of jazz and concrete stylings. Composed by Dutch Philips Research Laboratories employees Tom Dissevelt and Dick Raaijmakers (Kid Baltan) between 1957 and 1961, Song Of The Second Moon's dynamic and playful futurism would inspire legendary figures from Jean Jacques Perrey to Glenn Gould. For its premiere reissue we present the rare stereo version of the album with a multitude of outtakes, alternate and mono versions. 20 tracks, all original recordings. Remastered from the original Philips/Limelight master tapes in 2012. Twenty page full color booklet with exclusive liner notes and rare photos."
