Iron Butterfly, "Butterfly Bleu," 1970. Very creepy sound.

Favorite use: "Rocky Mountain Way."

Can you imagine how much cocaine Peter Frampton's sleazy managers used as "payola" to get those influential 70s dj's to ram that awful music down the impressionable throats of teen age America? That song is so long and boring you'd need some drugs to sit through it.

I don't know if Pink Floyd actually used it, but on one occasion when I was catching my buddy's band, the guitar player had one hooked up and applied it amazingly on a cover of Pigs (Three Different Ones).

- Kraftwerk used this through many of their albums (Trans Europe Express, The Man Machine, Computer World)

- Neil Young used it extensively on his Trans album (except for the 1st and last songs)

- ELO used it a lot on Out of the Blue (e.g. Mr. Blue Sky)

Sorry, but in the case of Trans-Europe Express and The Man-Machine, I think you are confusing vocoder and talk box.
I do not think a talk box has been used in any of these albums.

I think that was a vocoder.
