Both Sides Identical - Demonstration Record
R. A. Moog Company, Inc. Trumansburg, New York 14886
Microgroove; runout groove has: RDM 100-MONO - WC-6-67
Notes from the Moog Archive:
Wendy agreed to produce that record for R. A. Moog, Inc. I believe that (s)he was working for Gotham Recording at the time. Wendy came to Trumansburg. The two of us sat around a table and wrote the narrative together. Then she went back to New York and did the rest, either in her own studio or at Gotham.
I think that it's very good. We were very happy to have it, and to be able to GIVE it to prospective customers. We NEVER sold it.

Notes from Wendy Carlos.com:
Bob realized he needed an effective demonstration disk for his company's new customers. As a struggling young composer with few funds, I was able to "barter" my time and skills in recording, composing, and assembling a professional Moog demo LP, toward the purchase of additional synth components. Bob asked me to fly up to Trumansburg to work with him on the script, then I rushed back to assemble something for the Fall 1967 AES Convention. Fortunately I'd saved a lot of amusing brief "learning pieces" that Summer which came in handy to show off what these new instruments could do. It was an enjoyable project, part of a flurry of work completed in a few short, hectic years.
