about

THE GALACTIC COLLECTIVE is a deep re-imagining of the best of Erik’s vast instrumental compositions written for Rocket Scientists, Lana Lane and his own solo albums over the years. Recorded on an amazing arsenal of classic analog synthesizers (including 6 Moog instruments), Hammond organ and an incredible Steinway model B grand piano at Cleveland Ohio’s prestigious Magnetic North Studio with engineer Chris Keffer and executive producer Dena Henry along with bassist Mark Matthews, drummer Nick LePar and choral vocal sections by Lana Lane and John Payne along with a suite of guest guitarists including John Payne, Mitch Perry, Mark McCrite, Ron Redfield and Freddy DeMarco, Liner notes by Michelle Moog-Koussa, Executive Director of The Bob Moog Foundation. THE GALACTIC COLLECTIVE is a must have for all fans of keyboard - oriented instrumental progressive rock.

This edition includes 21 tracks in total. We start with the 10 tracks of the original album plus the 4 tracks from the 30-minute "Echoes from the Collective" 30-minute EP disc that is included with the Definitive Edition DVD/2CD package. Then we also include 7 "standalone" versions of the tracks that crossfade on the original album. The standalone versions have the full, clean starts and endings so you can put the songs into your custom playlists without abrupt, clipped transitions.
