Notes

An obscure artifact of early computer history, an uncredited and mostly anonymous 1960's vinyl LP record containing some of the very earliest synthesized computer music ever created and recorded. The first generation of proto-hackers at MIT (like Peter Samson) used the PDP-1 to build the world's first-ever videogames and create the first examples of computer music. The PDP-1X was a PDP-1 machine with a few advancements - it had paging modifications and twos complement arithmetic.

Album comes in a plain white sleeve.
