This is the incredible Thomas Dolby and one of his earlier works following his involvement with bands previous. This also was the first record I ever purchased by Dolby. His tracks were all over modern rock radio back in 1982 specifically 'She Blinded Me With Science' and 'One Of Our Submarines'. The tracks were so different from anything else, well, outside of Planet P which I bought roughly at the same time. Eventually, as most of us know, 'She Blinded Me With Science' went on to become an MTV favorite and achieve a peak #5 position with the Billboard Top 40 back in the late spring of 1983.
All of the songs from this LP are extended versions of the originals. I have decided to use the tracks from the 1999 CD compilation release '12X12'. The only track I recorded from this LP was 'Airwaves'. I hope to hear your feedback regarding it, as I was beside myself in making the decision not to record the entire mini LP. Perhaps some of you will like and or dislike that. Let me know and I can go back and record it in full. All the art is from my copy of the vinyl. Thanks!
