Silver Apples of the Moon

 Another pick by the National Recording Registry this year is Morton Subotnick's Silver Apples of the Moon, the first album of all-electronic music. Released in 1967, it found favor with electronics geeks, as well as legions of stoners who soaked in its mind-blowing sounds.

This story was produced by Ben Manilla for BMP Audio.
