Electronic Music
Vox/Turnabout, 1967

Killer album of three seminal early electronic pieces: Mimaroglu's Agony, Cage's Fontana Mix and Berio's Visage with the awesome Cathy Berberian.

Le Crabe Qui Jouait Avec La Mer by Rudyard Kipling, with Musique Concrete by Philippe Arthuys.
BAM, 1955

10" vinyl considered by many as the very first record of Musique Concrete, certainly the first issue from the Groupe de Recherche de Musique Concrete de la R.T.F. which later became the Group Recherche Musicale, or GRM in Paris.

Magic Egg Barrow Poets

I really should know more about the Barrow Poets, but for now, this is the record with the wonderful recital by Edwin Morgan of his poem The Loch Ness Monster's Song.
