"Gershon Kingsley's " Popcorn " is one of the worlds most recognisable tunes ...not bad going for a man who penned the track in two minutes.! ! ..... It was recorded in 1969 for Kingsley's solo album " Music To Moog By " http://www.virginmegastores... which saw Kingsley pioneering the use of Dr. Moog's early synthesizer.....Hot Butter released a more up-tempo version of Popcorn in 1972 . This became an instant hit across the world, and has the distinct title ot being The Worlds First Commercially Successful "Synthesizer" Record, WOW !!......Just as the name Moog is connected to Synthesizer...so too is Kingsley to Electronica......N.B While nearly 100 cover versions of Popcorn have been released over the years( i have 37 ),the funniest if not most impressive, has to be by a bearded man with a rubber-band..."

"Another clip from a film recorded in the sixties and found in the archives of the Dutch broadcasting company. What else is buried in there and might show up at some time. A collector in Holland taped this from a jazz show of recordings done mainly in the late fifties or early sixties. The Thelonnious Monk quartet plays Rhythm-a-ning in 1961 with Charlie Rouse on tenor, John Ore on bass, and Frankie Dunlop on drums."
