Feature

Friday, December 24, 2010

Another pick by the National Recording Registry this year is Morton Subotnick's Silver Apples of the Moon, the first album of all-electronic music. Released in 1967, it found favor with electronics geeks, as well as legions of stoners who soaked in its mind-blowing sounds.

The Sounds of American Culture, our series highlighting works in the National Recording Registry, receives production support from the Library of Congress.

I think soothing sounds for baby (1964) was the first all electronic music album.
