The weird thing is that the catalogue number does make it seem like it's from 1958 or 1959.

The year of release 1959 can't be correct, as one of the works on this album, Tom Dissevelt's "Intersection", was produced in early 1961. The album mentioned here is a compilation of mostly previously released material: Kid Baltan's single "Song of the Second Moon" (released not earlier than 1958, since the track on the B-side was recorded in April 1958), the EP Electronic Movements, composed by Dissevelt and produced by Baltan and Dissevelt (released not earlier than very late 1959, since the track "Syncopation" was recorded in November 1959), Baltan/Raaijmakers's "Pianoforte", recorded in May 1960 (the only work on this album which was not released before), and Baltan/Raaijmakers's "Mechanical Motions" (basically a remix made in December 1960 of Raaijmakers's electronic film music compositions "Achter de Schermen" and "Fuel for the Future", produced earlier that year). I have a review of this album from Dutch newspaper Het Vrije Volk from 23 June 1963, so I assume the release date must be May or June 1963.

I read this recently:Some canny YouTube user has tagged a track from The Fascinating World of Electronic Music as “acid house from 1958″, clocking up a quarter of a million views in the process – and, as it happens, they’re not too far off the money.Kid Baltan is the alias of Dutch artist Dick Raaijmakers, a cultural theorist, musical theatre composer, lecturer and engineer, whose whopping output stretches deep into the 2000s. Tom Dissevelt, meanwhile, started his musical life in big bands and orchestras – a similar situation to first-wave innovators like Raymond Scott, who composed the Looney Tunes music, and various members of the BBC Radiophonic Workshop.Raaijmakers and Dissevelt crossed paths working at Royal Philips Electronics, the Eindhoven-based workshop that would eventually churn out the first cassettes and compact discs. There, the pair started producing speculative electronic pop music, built out of layered oscillator tones and acoustic sound sources. Their labours produced 1957′s ‘Song of the Second Moon’ – a propulsive track based around treated Ondes Martenot noises, and arguably the first electronic pop record ever made.Baltan and Dissevelt’s music from this period was released in numerous editions and under different guises, but The Fascinating World of Electronic Music is the first release to pull their late 1950s compositions under one roof. The results – giddy, chirruping electronic pieces, arranged like pointillist dot paintings with a keen sense of rhythm – are still killer. Remarkably, much of these were also produced without any sort of keyboard or synth to hand. Raaijmakers’ legacy hasn’t been forgotten – Thurston Moore and Mouse on Mars are among those to have reinterpreted his work.

Great review & info for those thinking electronic music began in the 70's! Excellent.
