    Sheer synthetic brilliance by a duo who superseded Kraftwerk's more synthy based music by years. Way ahead of their time and well recorded by yesteryears standards. The creative tones that where squeezed out of the primitive gear has got to be on par with their fellow synth guru's Tomita and Carlos but no classical mimicry which gave the release a fresher musical appeal.

      In addition to production invites from the likes of Stevie Wonder, the T.O.N.T.O project influenced a wide range of musicians of all colours and creed. From Stevie Wonder to Parliament/Funkadelic, from a US perspective, this was a highly influential album, opening up the possibilities while being released just as the Funk sound of the 70's was forming. This marriage led to some of the most prolific music of the era.

        Atlantic reissued this on cd several years ago. Can't recall exact year - 2007 or something like that. I was working in a record shop at the time and the boss ordered a few in. We put 'em out for £4 each as it was part of a budget series.
        A week later he told me he'd tried to re-order and was told that Atlantic didn't have permission to reissue it so they were all pulled. My boss said if he'd known he would have ordered several boxes the first week we had 'em.
        After that they very quickly went up to £40 and more on Amazon. I thought I saw them on Discogs as well but can't find it now.

          "Jetsex" anticipates the trippy middle section of Kraftwerk's Autobahn by three years.
