Doc's Record and Vintage

Vinyl LP pressing. Visionary composer Raymond Scott was a pure genius largely known thanks to the massive recycling and adaptation of his music for cartoons. "Powerhouse" the title track of this beautiful collection is one of his best-known compositions for Warner Brothers animated cartoons. Scott's Quintette recorded "Powerhouse" in New York on February 20, 1937. The first use in a cartoon occurred in the 1943 Looney Tunes short "Porky Pig's Feat" and since then, you can count hundreds of apparitions, versions, and quotes, from Bugs Bunny to The Simpsons via Kronos Quartet and Don Byron's versions. In other words: a true classic piece of music beyond time and genres.
