Barry Forgie, Roger Roger, Nino Nardini & A Mawer — Mindbender – Stringtronics ... CD 9.99

An incredible album that's as evocative as its title – one that blends together strings and electronics into a sublime suite of sound library grooves! The album was masterminded by the lesser-known Barry Forgie – and also features work by other sound library talents Nino Nardini and Roger Roger, both of whom contribute some tasty Afro-styled grooves to the set! The overall feel is like the some of the best European soundtrack work from the time – with lots of lush instrumental passages, laid out with undercurrents of funk in places you wouldn't expect. Great stuff overall, and with tracks that include "Mindbender", "Ballata", "Hunted", and "Dawn Mists" by Barry Forgie; "Undercover Girl" and "Freedom Road" by Anthony Mawer; "Tropicola" and "Afro Samba" by Nino Nardini; and "Safari Park" and "Perdition" by Roger Roger.  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Dual Planet (Australia), Late 70s. New Copy
Very cool electronic sound library work – heavy on moog and guitar with effects – and spinning out at a level that reminds us a lot of the coolest spacey electronics from the French scene of the 70s! The tunes are all put together by Teisco, from instrumentation that's relatively spare ... CD
