I didn't feel that the moog had any trippy effect on Here Comes The Sun , I think it made Because feel a little bit more trippy. In Here Comes The Sun it mostly provides a more natural feel, except during the bridge which it almost feels out of place. I agree it does also give a new age sort of feel to Because , especially during its bridge. In Maxwell's Silver Hammer it also seems out of place, but I'm used to it there now so I guess it fits in.

A question for the experts: The new very little Minimoog Voyager achieves to produce the same range of sounds that the old one?

It's based on a Minimoog, which in turn was based on the original Moog but without all the patch cord stuff. I think they've updated it a little to allow Midi etc. Still eye-wateringly expensive though. If I was considering it I'd go for a cheaper emulator or synth instead – AFAIK there's nothing in a Moog that can't be achieved on other instruments, but there's a certain cachet in the name (which rhymes with 'rogue', incidentally).

Just to clarify: That larger of the two keyboards, in the top picture? That's actually a whole separate self-contained synth, a Polymoog I believe. It's not part of the that huge modular system (which is controlled by the smaller keyboard.) I'm just sayin'.

GEORGE: In fact, The Detroit Sound. JOHN: In fact, yes. GEORGE: In fact, yeah. Tamla-Motown artists are our favorites. The Miracles. JOHN: We like Marvin Gaye. GEORGE: The Impressions PAUL & GEORGE: Mary Wells. GEORGE: The Exciters. RINGO: Chuck Jackson. JOHN: To name but eighty.

The first Rock song to use a Moog was, seriously, a Monkees’ track by Mike Nesmith called “Daily Nightly”.  Micky Dolenz played it on their P, A, C & J album released in November, 1967.

I will play the game Existence to the End ;)

I like the Moog everywhere it appears on Abbey Road , but I’m also a nerd for synthesizers.

I guess the problem with the Moog on “Here Comes The Sun ” is: it´s very dry, what means no reverb or delay. That´s appropriate in the beginning when George plays it in the lower frequencies. But as George transposes the phrase in every repetition one octave higher he ends in the higher frequencies and then the sound misses some reverb or delay. It somehow doesn´t fit to the rest of the instruments.
