Analog Days Discography

Ok, after getting through about half of the book, I started wanting to type up the full discography at the back with links to youtube where possible to get a better feel for what a lot of this music actually sounds like (I’d only listened to maybe a tenth of this, if that much, previously). Not all of the albums are fully represented on youtube, and in some cases there’s nothing at all for a specific artist. Wendy Carlos in particular is very protective of her copyrights. If you like any of this music, you are encouraged to buy the CD and support the artist.

The authors included these artists, songs and albums in the discography based on their use of the Moog, Buchla Box or Arp synthesizers.

    Very cool! I’d just returned the book to the library and was very annoyed with myself for not making a copy of the discography. Like you I’ve only listened to about a 1/10th of these artists.

    Thank you for taking the time to put of this list.

  2. Glad to be of help.
