1. Product Details

If you purchased a snake plant asparagus fern peace lily or what have you from Mother Earth on Melrose Avenue in Los Angeles or bought a Simmons mattress from Sears in 1976 you also took home Plantasia an album recorded especially for plants. Subtitled warm earth music for plants... and the people that love them it was full of bucolic charming stoner-friendly decidedly unscientific tunes enacted on the new-fangled device called the Moog. Before Brian Eno did it Mort Garson was making discreet music. Julliard-educated and active as a session player in the post-war era Garson wrote lounge hits scored the 1969 moon-landing and plush arrangements for Doris Day and garlanded weeping countrypolitan strings around Glen Campbells By the Time I Get to Phoenix. But as his daughter Day Darmet recalls: When my dad found the synthesizer he realized he didnt want to do pop music anymore. Garson encountered Robert Moog and his new device at the Audio Engineering Societys West Coast convention in 1967 and immediately began tinkering with the device. My mom had a lot of plants Darmet says. She didnt believe in organized religion she believed the earth was the best thing in the whole world. Whatever created us was incredible. And she also knew when her husband had a good song. Novel as it might seem Plantasia is simply full of good tunes. This release marks the first official re-issue of the long sought-a er cult classic. Hearing Plantasia in the 21st century it seems less an ode to our photosynthesizing friends by Garson and more an homage to his wife the one with the green thumb that made everything flower around him.My dad would be totally pleased to know that people are really interested in this music that had no popularity at the time Darmet says of Plantasias new renaissance. He would be fascinated by the fact that people are finally understanding and appreciating this part of his musical career that he got no admiration for back then. Garson seems to be everywhere again even if hes not really noticed just like a houseplant.
