Mort Garson - Plantasia (1976)

Is it Earth Day yet? No? Well regardless, Mort Garson make's sure you've got Mother Nature in mind 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. As written clearly on the cover, this record is dedicated to plants and the people who love them, and boy do I love plants.
     Armed with nothing more than a Moog Synthesizer, the Juilliard graduate Mort Garson delivers a stellar performance filled with groove infused-nougats of musical genius. The ever-considerate, Canadian-born Garson gives you the option to play the record for your plants (to help them grow, believe it or not) or for yourself. Woof. You gotta love that versatility.
