Found it for a buck. My copy plays better than it looks. I thought it was commercially obscure, but checking out the chart numbers, this was a big hit on the Command label. Lp dates February, 1969, charted on Billboard's Jazz Lp chart, Soul R&B album chart, and the Top Lps chart from May through December, 1969. It spun off a hit single, "Topless Dancers of Corfu"/"The Minotaur," on command 4126, and the B-side charted in mid-1969 on both the Soul 45s chart and the Hot-100.

I get this guy, Dick Hyman, confused with Richard Hayman. (Like Bruce Springfield and Rick Springstone....)

Space age lounge. Playful and silly and dated. Great fun. Great stuff. He offers plenty of variety, sometimes even backed by a "robot instrument" and even gets kind of adventurous at times, the sound sometimes foreshadowing elements of electronic music from the future, and not just in the obvious ways. Moog fans will want this.

Great fun album I just found today on a chilean pressing (not-gatefold) from 1969.

I've mixed this album with techno, beatmatching The Minotaur with a Hawtin record.
For actual humans. And they danced.

BOLD music. Kinda druggy.

Most listeners of electronic music and "techno" probably aren't as passionate about the movement as I am and therefore may not see it this way, but I feel this was a hugely pioneering effort that quite possibly could have fueled the fire that became (much later) "techno". The fact that robot drum beats comprised the foundation of the best tracks and repetitive basslines (ostinatos by any other name) dominated the tracks are the reason that lovers of techno oughtta check this album out. Live keyboard work does not keep this from being "techno" either - a fact that was proven later - by many "house" artists and early "techno" pioneers. And even live drums on a couple tracks just widened the scope of the artistic aspects of this album. Lovers of music should be able to enjoy this too, as it is not so entirely "electronic" in nature. The synthesizer is in fact a very expressive MUSICAL instrument, contrary to the folklore of decades of synth-haters who claim it to be too robotic and not musical. Check this album out and feel the diversity of its approach. Very electronic yet so live and organic. In other words - VERY COOL!
