Synthesizers Unlimited - Electric Bazaar (1974, UK, electronic) 
Friday, April 6, 2007, 06:19 PM - Music, - UK, English
Synthesizers Unlimited is a project by Anthony King of whom I don't know much. He performed Soul of the city on the album of Gunther Leonhardt (1971) and collaborated with John Matthews on Pots and Sides (1974).
He also made “Lost star” in the seventies, according to Vitalis on Scopia and you can find some work of King and Chris Vander (Magma?) on Workforce - Percussion Unit from 1980.
Connoisseurs can tell from the picture of the cover it is not an original copy. The typography is different. This is from a bootleg cd.

Jah Wobble - V.I.E.P. (1980, UK, new wave/electronic/dub) 
Friday, March 30, 2007, 06:35 PM - Music, - UK, English
Together with Betrayal, this is the best Jah Wobble lp/ep, to my taste. Totally weird.
I once wanted to do the Wobble version of Blueberry Hill at Paradiso's Latente Talente Show in Amsterdam, but the band didn't know where to begin. At the Debutistenfestival in S61, Roermond, the band did a better job, they saw it as a big joke (but I didn't know where to end).
Anyway, Blueberry Hill is different from the version on the Betrayal lp/cd and Blood Repression never made it to cd.



Side one:
1 Blueberry Hill [3:51]
2 Blueberry Hill (Computer Version) [4:19]
3 I Need You By My Side [3:34]
4 I Need You By My Side (Message From Pluto) [4:44]

Side two:
1 Sea-Side Special [7:37]
2 Something Profound [6:02]
3 Blood Repression [3:57]

Wolfgang Düren - Eyeless Dream (1980, DE, electronic) 
Wednesday, March 28, 2007, 06:40 PM - Music, - DE, English
Wolfgang Düren became more widely known to people as the chairman of Waldorf Music. Before founding Waldorf Music he partnered with Wolfgang Palm, the man behind PPG, and distributed his synths in the late seventies till the fall of PPG in the mid eighties. Later Wolfgang distributed the synths of Waldorf, Access and Novation with his company TSI.
While he was distributing or later in charge of building synths, he was also a musician. In the late seventies he recorded the LP "Eyeless Dream". This record featured many sounds of the early PPG wavetable synths that just have had become available to some musicians searching for a new kind of sound beyond the conventional synth sounds using filters and modulations as main building blocks to shape their sound. These very new sounds in electronic music made this LP an insiders favourite over the years. Today this rare LP is of cause not available anymore. (dueren.waldorfian.info)




Thanks to some Waldorfian's MP3 encoding of the LP and Wolfgang Düren's kind permission, these tracks are now available for free as 208 kBit/s variable bit rate mp3s.

Side one:
1 Eyeless Dream I [8:19]
2 Phila [9:51]

Side two:
1 904 [5:43]
2 Proton [9:19]
3 Eyeless Dream II [5:47 ]
