The one thing not mentioned in the two fine comments is the obvious contribution in the lyrics by the wonderfully warped mind of Mr. Ian Dury. Credit where credit is due, King of the Blockheads!

How many 12"s are as tidy and effective as this one? All three tracks do it proper- "Glad To Know You" has the slightly effete Jankel sound down perfect, total grooving track; "3,000,000 Synths" is a mind-blower of early electro, a great precedent for 80s electro and important historically (alongside Cat Stevens' "Was Dog A Doughnut"); and "Ai No Corrida" is another amazing period mover, that despite the great Quincy Jones' interest, couldn't be beaten by the cover QJ did on "The Dude". Slightly geeky stuff, but all the better for it; this 12" is very much a reflection of the time, but the tracks all still work marvelously, for listening or dancing.

3,000,000 Synths was the 'B' Side cut on the U.S. 12". But make no mistake, this was an early prototype electronic funk
track that was released in 1981 on the flip side to the club hit
"Glad To Know You". Not many people know of this record
yet it does remain one of the earliest known examples of the
electronic music revolution.
