Requested: Zoom-Thin' Else from Bruno Spoerri, 1979









I believe this album was shared on a website long, long ago, or at least I vaguely recall seeing it there some 2-3 years ago -- surely an eternity in today's digital world in which people change phones every year and purchase new hardware every few months to the detriment of coltan miners and the 'african world war' still raging in the Congo and other parts of sub-saharan Africa. 

At any rate it's a fantastic little euro-fusion album featuring some perfectly bionic melding of synthesizers with fusionoid noodling -- close up of Lindsay Wagner's ear tuning in to the grooves... [and smashing the transistor radio to pieces?]  Notice that Bruno Spoerri was the producer, he has a long list of credits to his name.  His 1978 Voice of Taurus album is recommended for the electro-disco-prog-pop fan.

Those who are fans of Charlie Mingus (like myself in a long-distant past) will note the song B4 (Dreamline) is very much derived from seventies Mingus albums like 'Mingus Moves' as you can hear here on the plain internet archive upload:

  2. Great! As far as I remember Bruno Spoerri is/was one of the very few individuals who actually owned the EMS Synthi 100 beast.
