Album: Space Experience
Label: Columbia

Year: 1972
Designer: not listed

Artist: not listed
Grade: *** stars

Musically this album is a good example of uber-lounge; John Keating using a Electronic Music Studi. VCS3 synthesizer to stomp through a mixture of then-popular hits and his own atmospheric compositions.  The album is certainly listenable; you can see a review at:, but the album cover showcasing an uncredited NASA photo, is simply spectacular.  

Anyone know which space flight it captured and who the astronaut was ?


  1. The photograph was taken during the Apollo 9 mission. The astronaut is David Scott.

    1. You can always count on someone knowing. Thanks Graham.
