Orange Lake Drive's Transcend LP from USA, 1982 [+ reups of Didier Bonin by request]
Some very smooth US-style fusion from this band, typically eighties in sound but with some great passages well worth hearing for fans of the genre. Information on this release here. I recall so well Tom Hayes saying he hates drum machines-- I hate them too, but what I hate still more is the loud end of beat claps you hear in these eighties fusion records... Probably after watching one too many old MTV videos in which artists clapped in unison in those old grainy colors...
I'll post the last track which possesses the advantage of being brief in addition to the quality of beauty.
