A friend asked me yesterday if I remember the hit Pop Corn, I said, sure it was in the charts in 1972.
What I did not know was that Hot Butter's Popcorn was a cover version....

Here is the original by the French Gershon Kingsley from his album Music To Moog By from 1969.

Gershon Kingsley was born in Germany. He later relocated to the USA.

Indeed, he has some solo releases, as well as those by "The First Moog Quartet" and as a duo of "Perrey-Kingsley".

They're all rather cheesy but interesting from historic perspective. However, an interesting part is that Gershon also made a foray into the world of Space Music with his 1986 album "Much Silence". In 1990, this album was re-released as "Anima". However, both versions are pretty rare these days.

I have a track of his on the "Cruisers 1.0" compilation. I don't remember it standing out. I haven't listened to it in years.
I'm downloading some of his music right now. I'mm curious...

Thank Artemi for the tip,
Much Silence I like, nice minimalistic piano with synth background, a bit of Eno/Budd atmosphere maybe even Tim Story, I found a sealed LP copy, with punch hole Sad at least it's new.
The CD will tough to find, it also came out on Relativity Theory in '86.

The HOS Cruiser 1.0 has 4 tracks by him on it, I don't have that CD.

The history of popcorn:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Popcorn_%28instrumental%29

Including the fact that even Jean-Michel Jarre (as the Popcorn Orchestra) covered it.

I have a number of Perrey-Kingsley CD's after searching for ages for some tune recorded of off medium wave radio in the early 70's when I stumbled upon an LP with some electronics cover, the sister of a friend of mine gave me to use as background music for a short Dutch "hoorspel" (Radio-play).
This was "Incredible Synthesizer"
http://www.discogs.com/Perrey-Kingsley-Incredible-Synthesizer/release/1231645

The 3CD "Outside Sounds From Way In" is a very comprehensive collection of their finest work.
http://www.discogs.com/Perrey-Kingsley-The-Out-Sound-From-Way-In-The-Complete-Vanguard-Recordings/master/329588
It's a special 3-CD re-issue of the original 4 LP's:
The In Sound From Way Out
Spotlight On The Moog
The Amazing New Electronic pop Sound of Jean Jaques Perrey

Marcel.

Very charming!

Actually, I have wondered every now and then who made that song, without ever taking the time to do some research...

Did anyone find this one - even more charming:

I like the original version better than the Hot Butter cover...

And I also saw that it was claimed as the first electronic song on YouTube, which, of course, it is not.

Because that would be 'Song of the Second Moon' by Tom Dissevelt and Kid Baltan (Dick Raaijmakers) from 1957!
