Ferrante & Teicher - Soundblast (The Sound of Tomorrow - Today) [Westminster, 1956] @320

This is for  flash strap, who recently posted some other great Ferrante & Teicher exotica.  This is NOT the crap found nestled next to Mitch Miller in your parents' stack of lps  - unless your parents were oodles more cool than most - but then they wouldn't have Mitch Miller albums, would they? And we're probably talking about your grandparents.  Sorry, I digress.

Anyway, per the ever invaluable Wiki , Steven Tyler of Aerosmith states that during the 1950s Messrs. Ferrante & Teicher practiced in the home of his grandmother Constance Neidhart Tallarico.  So maybe young Steven heard some of these songs when he went to visit Gram after school. Or not!

And c'mon, you can't tell me you don't love this.
