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.

Had a couple albums by these guys when I was a kid and liked them a lot. Thank you!

Gadzooks! That is some great stuff, I'd never heard of Ferrante & Teicher before.

I'm going to try walking around with this on my iPod and see what kind of adventures unfold...

Thanks Holly!

I still feel very leery about these dudes. Far too many dollar bin albums of theirs have passed me by. If I know find them to be great I'll feel like a fool for passing on all those disks. Perhaps I should remain oblivious if only so as to not add more regret to my life.

I bought a vinyl copy of this back in the 80s, so I thank you for making this available in digital form. Also worth hearing is "Ferrante And Teicher Blast Off" and "Denizens Of The Deep".

Great upload!!
Thank you very much!
Do you also have their ''Hi-Fireworks'' LP?

Thanks for posting this! I've been looking for this one for a while!!

I posted a song from another of their prepared piano wackouts, Dynamic Twin Pianos, on my blog last year: "Alternating Current."

I recently found a copy of another one, Heavenly Sounds in Hi-Fi. Luckily, that one's available on MP3 as Heavenly in Hi-Fi. For whatever reason, they replaced the great cover of the original with a totally crap one, and one of the song titles is slightly wrong.
