Knew about this from a while back, and I'm thinking it was from Mefi... but maybe not. Anyway, thanks for the reminder, davebush.

You should probably link to the original source.

Jan Hammer is a strange and interesting guy. He's played with everybody from John McGlaughlin to Neal Schon and usually managed to be listenable. More power to him.

That is some serious camel toe right there.

Yep, these were scanned and uploaded by (synth module maker) Cynthia years ago. They're still awesome.

That is some serious camel toe right there.

A lot of that, I'm sure, is shirt.

Squeeee! Three pages into the first issue I find a full page ad for my dream machine, the Yamaha CS-80 (which may be the topic of an upcoming fpp)!

Incidentally, this has got to be the longest chain of "Via:" I've ever seen.

Dangerous Minds via Nerdcore via Der ModeBlob via Diagramsmusic via Guardian Music via Max Tundra via VividExpanse ...

Also this may be the thing to justify that iPad I've been looking for an excuse to buy.

Neat, thanks!

Apparently this beauty never made it into production. I weep.

This Bob Welch/Ampeg ad just insured I will never listen to Sentimental Lady again.

If it were my photos, I'd be claiming shrinkage.

I was all set to say "70s electronic music? if it doesn't have anything about Synergy, then it isn't!", but then I see the second cover on the list mentions Larry Fast.

So, carry on. Awesome post.

Thanks for posting this. It could be awesome to try to build some of the circuits they provide info for (if it's possible to track down the chips).

Fuck yeah, Roger Powell.
