Missing April Orchestra Part IV.ii, Volume 41 by Bernard Estardy from 1982 [lossless]

A very short LP (prob. about half an hour) and with a mixed bag of sole-percussion, synthesizer styles, bits of baroque, and light-hearted fusion, the kind most of us can't tolerate much of.  Not too convincing in the direction of attempting to obtain the missing volumes definitively.  The track called "But where did my melody go" is really missing a melody.  That would have been unheard of in the early seventies AO days, when there was still a premium placed on excellence in composition.  Nor is there any irony, but I suppose there is a tongue possible in cheek in a later song called "It's not nothing, but almost" which in a way disappoints our modern ironic sense by being actually listenable (in a love boat) way rather than being really nothing:
