Happy birthday to Synth/Electronic Music trailblazer, Mort Garson

Mort Garson remains one of the great unsung heros of the synthesizer. Often going uncredited, or under a pseudonym, Garson released albums for Satanic Black Masses, songs for plants, hippie exploitation tie-ins, audio erotica, and a whole twelve part series dedicated to each sign of the zodiac. Unfortunately, and perhaps due to his anonymity, his name remains largely unknown today, which given the current interest in vintage synthesizer music, will hopefully soon change, as Garson’s records stand with the best of them. Dilla knew what was up
