Title: Mount Vernon and Fairway - Instrumental ?
Post by: pmugghc on December 07, 2022, 04:32:50 AM
Wasn't there a release of the Fairy Tale music in instrumental form, without the narration? I think I have all the CDs and compilations, but I can't find this.

a new 30-second longer mix is included in SOS, track 7 disc 6

it adds a short "intro" of radio noise,
a false start and instrumental portion on Back In Bed,
the "wind" sound effect (what is that anyway?) intros I'm The Pied Piper rather than Radio Kingdom,
and Magic Transistor Radio adds an instrumental portion also

I havent listened to the new box yet (likely waiting to pick up a physical copy first) and I havent heard the Fairytale in a while (and Im not even sure if I have listened to the instrumental version), but Im going to make an assumption that the wind sound effect is (played on) a Moog synthesizer. Slightly off-topic, but does anyone know why some people pronounce it as Mowg when its clearly spelled Moog? Thank you in advance.

Bob Moog the inventor of the Moog synthesizer pronounced his name that way

Thanks, guitarfool. I didnt know that, but Im still surprised he pronounced his name that way, defying my expectations.  ;D

I think Mowg isnt quite right. What I recall hearing is more Moag. Or, the name of the stooge with a hard stop. Super picky, I know.  ;D

No, youre right though (and Im also super picky about everything so I get it  ;D). I should have thought a little more about the pronunciation before asking.  :)

It's a Dutch/German name, and double Os are pronounced differently than in English.  One can Anglicise the name, or not.  Bob Moog didn't.

Hi Joshilyn, thank you for the historical/lingual background. You learn something new every day.  :)
