TVD Radar: Mort Garson, Plantasia vinyl reissue in stores 6/21

VIA PRESS RELEASE | Brooklyn label Sacred Bones today announced the first official Plantasia reissue in 40 years, partnering with Discogs to help drive awareness for this cult classic album featuring “warm earth music for plants and the people who love them.”

Released in 1976 by unsung electronic hero Mort Garson — whose work made Bob Moog cry — the story goes that you could only get a copy with the purchase of a Simmons mattress. It was the kind of album that few people knew about, even fewer people heard, and almost no one owned. Thanks in part to the record’s rarity, its subject matter, Garson’s cult status, and that downright bizarre sales strategy, Plantasia slowly developed an alluring aura.

The Discogs Database & Marketplace made it clear that this album was in high demand from the Discogs community. Discogs is confident based on the community intelligence that a much larger audience would love to add this record to their collection and will support Sacred Bones with a multitude of marketing elements to amplify the excitement around Plantasia within the massive Discogs user base.

In addition, Discogs is excited to offer the first-ever cassette version of Mort Garson’s ‘Mother Earth’s Plantasia,’ released by Sacred Bones Records and exclusively available via Discogs. Limited to 250 copies, cassettes will be delivered by release date, June 21.

Sacred Bones and Atlas Obscura will also be co-presenting a Plantasia listening experience and workshop at Brooklyn Botanic Garden on June 18. More details on that event will be revealed soon.
