A COMPILATION…..

 

THE MELLOTRON ALBUM 

RARE 1993 CD  VP141CD /VOICEPRINT / US

 

The answer to a mellotron fans wet dream!

New tracks by the likes of Mike Pinder, Patrick Moraz, David Cross, Bill Nelson, Wooly Wolstenholme, Blue Weaver, a/o. 

If you love the sound of the mellotron , this will have you in audio ecstasy. 

The centerpiece of the sampler has to be "Mighty Tron" performed by David Etheridge. He begins with the intro to "Strawberry Fields Forever" (yes, gang, *that's* a Mellotron), and blends into "Nights in White Satin" for a bit. 

Then this compilation of his goes off into a very upbeat piece—nothing I recognize. It does sound a little like John Williams' "Star Wars Theme", though. 

Further on the intro to Genesis' "Foxtrot" album is played, and the grande finale is a thoroughly Mellotron-orchestrated "Strawberry Fields" intro (with choruses, strings, brass, whatever). I think it's the best track on the disc and certainly the most dramatic.

Edgar Froese /Tangerine Dream. Most older Tangerine Dream and Froese's solo projects included the Mellotron. 

The Mellotron made a very important contribution to music, creating everything from the melodrama that was Tangerine Dream to the depth that was the Moody Blues. As pointed out by Etheridge, the Mellotron also blazed the way to today's digital sampling technology.
