This one has moog,vocals (!) and cheesy sitar effects.Found a copy of this gem at Goodwill a few months ago.
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OhYK7hWVMe4
Here is one that has been heavily sampled,and is in fairly high demand.Yet to find a copy.

Love to get the EMI Studio 2 shown here.Never seen "Mirrors" either.They could get funky.


Everyone needs a complete run of "Persuasive Percussion" and "Provacative Percussion" records.

Hi Tim:

There used to be a very good Command Records/Enoch Light fan site, but it seems to be shut down now.
Fortunately, there is the Wayback Machine:
http://web.archive.org/web/20050519085051/http://www.enochlight.com/

Note the interview with Dick Hyman, it's a good one.

The Moog stuff actually isn't Dick's best work with Command. He played keyboards on almost every
record, and I like his Lowry Organ records a lot.
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=m9M_6gJQiME
and
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bwqoXBaSevo
(notice how that Lowry sound shows up again on the second Moog record)

He also did a pair of "just what is this soul music the kids are playing?" records which actually
have ... SOUL!
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pAVnqm_fMbs
and
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=95m1ukrs0ws
the album notes make sure to point out that Dick played all the keyboards using this newfangled rock
and roll technology called re-recording (overdubbing).

The other album was "Mirrors":
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_Wai1kCUT_4

After Command Records stopped making new records, Dick joined Enoch Light's Project 3 Records and
made an album of many overdubbed keyboards:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DGwWUn80lNo
and
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_i-1BRnXTD0
This was much more a 70's stoner rock vibe than the funky Command records.

There's a great compilation CD to be made of Dick Hyman's Command era. Every record has one or two
really good cuts, and some are all good. Dick did all or almost all of his own arranging, so the
sound and feel are different from the Lew Davies arrangements used on most of the other Command
records. He also did a jazz trio record for Command, just a straight jazz album.

Another Command artist who made some fantastic albums was Urbie Green, also Doc Severinsen. And
Count Basie made two Command albums, both co-produced by Teddy Reig. The other stuff runs hot and
cold, to my taste and most modern tastes. I like the jazz elements and expert playing, but when you
bring in a pile of strings and reduce broadway tunes to easy listening, I can't do that. But the
same guys who made the syrupy string "Movie Themes" albums also made "Big Band Bossa Nova" and the
"Persuasive Percussion" and "Provacative Percussion" series.
