I may be one of the only people who feels this way, but I bought this version of the LP and saw the tour (Ohio University) and believe the LP and the tour were a major waste of my hard earned cash. PS, I love Neil Young YMMV 2EHO.

Although this album has pretty good reviews here on this page it is one of the most underrated albums I know of. If someone else, say an unknow odd weirdo,
would have made this album and made 1000 copies it would have been a collectors holy grail.

Absolutely amazing New Wave Synth Pop!

This album is full of vocoder vocals, big electro basslines & sweeping synths.

Around this time (1982), Geffen were into New Wave. They had just released Berlin's major debut "Pleasure Victim" EP, and this Neil Young LP fits in a similar style.

While this is all very strange, what I find MORE bizarre than an album almost full of Neil Young singing through a vocoder are the tracks placed A1 & B1.

They are NOT vocoder synth pop tracks. Oh no. Not at all. They are straight up 70's MOR rock.

So did Geffen ask Neil to make these two more, shall we say "traditional" songs to appeal to radio stations?

Who knows. All that is for sure is that anyone who bought this LP on the strength of hearing A1 & B1 would be in for one hell of a shock when they got home.

Fans of Minimal Synth / Electronic New Wave check this LP out. Very cool.

The label in the images shows 5:09 as the running time for Sample and Hold but the listing itself says 8:04. Likewise, the label says 8:08 for Like and Inca whereas the listing says 9:45. Can we get a correction?

The vocoder used on this CD is the Sennheiser Vocoder VSM201.

If only all the old school rock legends had done a full-on vocoder LP, the world would be a much better place ; )

My copy of this has the same catalog number as the US press above, GHS 2018. But it contains the song Transformer Man, both on the album itself, and on the label and sleeve.
