Recently attended the Toronto Mid-Town Record Show at Mount Pleasant & Davisville here in Toronto, and though I opted out of the early bird shopping frenzy I came out with some great new finds. Among some of those are Hugh LeCaine's "Compositions & Demonstrations 1948 - 1972.
This image was borrowed from the net... my scanner is down! This is an album of recordings by a Canadian pioneer of electronic music, and I can't listen to it right now either because it is still sealed! So check out the first synth ever I'll have to open it sooner or later.
I also picked up Action & Suspense form the Spectrum Mood Library series, #4. It is a little beat up, but it's better than not having it at all! Here is a link to an awesome track that is not on this record but gives you an idea what I am hearing right now...
Some more great stuff includes Jean Billboard's Galaxy Flash, a Yamaha electone synthesizer demonstration record that is like the Magic Organ in space... And is apparently played by Edgar Schlepper who is also Ed Vanguard who played in Warning, an amazing dark electro band from 1982 here is a link to WARNING
Also found This Konstruktivists album from 1985, here is a sample
I have plenty of new stock and am selling alot of cosmic and synth records at my weekly Saturday sales at 444-3 Dufferin Street, come and visit from 12 - 6pm, every Saturday starting June 9th.
