A couple of lost proggy and surprisingly funky early 80s albums by keyboardist Tony Carey – his Explorer and Yellow Power LPs – together in cool 2LP gatefold set from Medical Records! Just a few years earlier, Carey was playing with Ritchie Blackmore in Rainbow – but the sound of this solo material is a world away! It carries a bit of a late era Euro disco vibe – mixed with some starker, more walloping sounds that are more indebted to new wave. It's got hypnotic keyboard grooves, compelling beats and cosmic atmosphere to spare – the kind that'll be welcome to connoisseurs of artists as varied as Giorgio Morodor, Alexander Robotnick, John Carpenter and Devo! Explorer is the slightly sparer record and Yellow Power is the more polished one -which features alternate versions of the majority of the Explorer songs and some completely different titles, too– and it ultimately serves as a more fleshed out version of the preceding LP. Both were recorded in 1982 at Hotline Studios in Frankfurt. Really cool, mostly instrumental grooves! Explorer includes "Enjaw J", "Transit To Nowhere", "Megawar", "Blue Fusion", "No. 8", "No. 14", "Rabbits" and more. The Yellow Power LP includes "Hai Samurai", "Tojo", "Queen Of Scots", "Blue Fusion", "Peking Duck", "Radio Tokyo", "Dynamite" and more. (Limited edition of 1000 hand-numbered copies. One record is green and the other is baby blue.)  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Medical, Early 80s. New Copy
Very cool, very spare work from this UK duo from the early 80s – kind of a homemade take on electro pop modes of the time, but with a dark sound that's pretty striking all the way through!

Finders Keepers (UK), Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy 2 LPs
A beautifully trippy duo who work here mostly with electronics – but who use the instruments in very organic ways that are almost acoustic!

Luaka Bop, Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy 3 LPs Gatefold
Grooves unlike anything else you've ever heard before – the rightly legendary musical legacy of William Onyeabor, one of the most enigmatic talents to come from the African scene of the 70s!
