Soul Of The Machine- A Windham Hill sampler LP of New Electronic Music.
I found this mint vinyl copy at Half Price Books for a buck. The high quality sound and vinyl pressing sounds clear, dynamic and well balanced with a nice lower bass register, all typical attributes of recordings from Windham Hill Records. Soul Of The Machine was first released 31 years ago in 1987 and on the back of the album jacket they remind us that this release is "available on CD and BASF chrome cassette". This release is a collection of various keyboard and electronic artists so if you like this style of music be sure to pick up a copy for yourself. if you stumble across a vinyl version pick it up for sure or, maybe youI can find it on CD...or, cassette. 5 Stars.
