Thanks for more Gershon Kingsley!

Now that we're on the subject of Gershon Kingsley, does anybody know if the double LP he recorded years ago God Is A Moog is Library material or not?

I'll take my answer off the air. Thanks to anybody who can spread enlightenment.

     God Is A Moog seems to be a commercial release with two older albums—Shabbat For Today and The 5th Cup—on a bonus disc. As far as I can tell, he only did four Library LPs: This Golden Ring and three sides for Europhon (including ELP 548).

     I'm just getting into Kingsley and really enjoying his music. If you grew up in the USA in the late 70s/early 80s, I'm sure you are familiar with "Popcorn." It was everywhere. Below is a cover version by Guy Boyer. Kingsley also worked a lot with another Library regular, Jean-Jacques Perrey.

     Check out Gershon Kingsley's bio: h++ps://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gershon_Kingsley. He fled Nazi Germany for Israel and then, years later, joined his parents who managed to emigrate to America. He returned to Germany after a few decades where he produced the Library albums. He is still alive and in his late 90s.

Yes, I'd read Kingsley's bio a while ago. I was so impressed I made a copy for his file, just so I could read it again later.

Thanks for ripping Pop Corn, btw. Pop Corn always goes down well on dateless Friday Nights  :)

Yep, just me and my cat, a wool cardigan and the smell of moth balls and quiet desperation.
