Mort Garson – The Wozard of Iz (1968)

Mort Garson – Electronic Hair Pieces (1969)

Mort Garson – Black Mass (Lucifer) (1971)

This is one of Mort Garson’s electronic Moog babies, Lucifer. ‘Black Mass’ was suprisingly released in 1971 on MCA, not sure how Mort got MCA to approve that title.
The concept of this album shows the Moog delivering sounds sinister and exciting to a degree the lurid horror films of the day never matched. All the titles related to occult phenomenons and themes, and seemed to focus mainly on the darker side of occultism. With it’s breakbeats galore, intense synthesizer, hip original themes, this was really a unifying concept. An occult Moog-album! The man behind this recording was a somewhat obscure solo artist; Mort Garson.
I find the listen quite playful and it makes me laugh knowing that this was ‘dark’ for the time. Digging deeper and years earlier there are ‘darker’ albums. This is nonetheless a great document in the history of the Moog synthesizer that is often overlooked.
