I just picked this up today from the $1 bin. Did not really think it was going to be that good, but for $1, to listen to a tune called Computer Samba while having a beer! why not..??
I was blown away from track #1 Cobra.
Then I started reading the notes on the Lp jacket, this guy a a synth wizard who loves funk! you can tell that he did lot of late 70's cop shows soundtrack, the breaks, the hooks, ..it was a great buy. If you like jazz, funk and synth sounds, this record is for you. Hopefully my review was helpful.

Superior synthy jazz-funk LP from Canada.
Easy to assume it's a dreadful heavy metal album from that cover!
UK LP has 'Freedom' instead of 'Hanglider' for some reason.
Also available on cassette.
