    In looking back at this pre-MIDI era and considering where we are now, staggeringly obvious become the true effects of Dr. Robert Moog's lifelong efforts to make electronic music more accessible.

    There is an introspective quality to Personal Space.

    As ever with compilations of almost-lost treasures such as this, it is the certain out of time quality that is its greatest attribute.

    There's a paragraph of informative text for each track, along with sleeve and label scans, to place all of this enjoyable oddness into some kind of context.

    A fascinating trawl through the post-Talking Book period where black pop first embraced electronics. [Aug 2012, p.109]

    Fans of all those cold-wave reissues, here's a nice warm wave of funky-ass basement studio soul. [Jun 2012, p.159]

    As an insight to a world within a world of black American music, Personal Space elicits interest. As a compilation, it fails to sustain it very long.
