Web Extra: Silver Apples of the Moon
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.
