Notes

Presented as a 144-page small hardback book with a CD inside each cover.

A compilation of Scott's electronic music intended for advertisements or to showcase his inventions, selected after his death from the thousands of disks and tapes in the Raymond Scott archive at the University of Missouri-Kansas City libraries.

As much of the music here was never intended for release, several versions of some tracks are included. All is explained within the book.

I just purchased the Music On Vinyl re-issue. The sound is good. I would like to know how the sound is on the Basta 2001 press though. Did anybody make the comparison?

Raymond Scott ‎– Manhattan Research Inc. How would I explain this lp?... it's like a mixture of Ken Nordine, Aphex Twin and The Residents BUT it's not because it's the genius of Raymond Scott !
Stunning!

Just love these crazy adverts with bleeping analogue squelching melodies.
A sound stealing paradise.
