THE ZODIAC - 'ARIES - The Fire-Fighter' (Elektra EKL 4009) May 1967
'Cosmic Sounds' was a completely original album of pioneering electronic music by Mort Garson who composed, arranged and conducted all tracks with lyrics by Jacques Wilson. Ex MFQ member Cyrus Faryan provided narration.
Each song focused on the signs of the zodiac with album opener and moog/psych rock cross-over 'Aries - Fire-Fighter' an instant winner. Infact the moog and weird sound effects dominate the whole LP. Of course, this strangeness could only have happened in the late 60s.
Astrology has become a religious force in our time.
And in this extraordinary album, the ancient signs of the zodiac
are hauntingly evoked in a celestial fusion of poetry, music and electronic effects.
This is the love sound of the future.
