Sand - Golem and the other LPs
Quiet Sun - S/T
Eno on the early Roxy Music albums and possibly some of the early solo records?

what am I missing? I love the sound of this thing, help me find other examples. I'm sure I'm overlooking some obvious ones.

Derek Bailey
Solo Guitar (1971)

Derek Bailey plays VCS3 on a few tracks.

so are there any "destroy" entries in that RYM list or is the presence of this instrument pretty much a guarantee of quality?

also, that Tonto's Exploding Head Band record is so good, I thought it was only Moog but I guess not

You definitely must hear that album.

iirc, it’s only on one track (“The Squirrel And The Rickety-Rackety Bridge”) and it’s not particularly great...or at least, for me, it didn’t live up to what I imagined Derek Bailey playing a VCS3 would be.

sleeve are you into Sensations’ Fix? Cold Nose by Franco Falsini (on that RYM list) is really nice.
