    Notes

    Album produced September 1977 through April 1978.

    Recorded at the Synergy Studio and at House of Music, West Orange, New Jersey. Mixed at House of Music - first mix in Studio B.

    Originally Mastered at Sterling Sound, N.Y., April 26, 1978.

    Equipment by: (Old friends) Moog Music, Oberheim Electronics, 360 Systems, Musitronics, Eventide Clockworks, The Synergy System. (New friends) PAiA, Russ Hamm Guitar Synthesizer, MOS Technology (KIM-1). Apple Computer Corp., Aphex Systems, Loft Modular Devices.

    This album was recorded using only electronic music devices. Finally guitars… sort of.

    This album was originally released as Passport PB-6000 in 1978 as a clear vinyl LP distributed by Arista Records. It was later distributed by Jem/Passprt Records also as a clear vinyl disk with slightly altered cover artwork. Other labels distributed in non-US territories. DJ copies and occasional manufacturing runs were pressed on traditional black vinyl making the black disks less comon. Cords was issued in a limited run on CD in 1986 as Passport PBCD-6000.

    This new CD reissue is taken from the original analog studio mixes done in the spring of 1978 and does not contain the limiting or frequency rolloffs necessary for the original LP mastering. Audio refinements and corrections that current digital technology permits have been used to further reconstruct the sound of the original studio mixes. Though the transfer is the best possible at this time, some evidence of the original analog source is audible at times.

    Digital audio preperation by Larry Fast at the Synergy Studio, June, 1997 using Macintosh-based Digidesign Sound Designer II and Masterlist CD software. Additional DSP work including noise shaping and redithering to 16 bit audio performed using C1, Q10, Renaissance Compressor and L1 DSP plug-in modules from ks Waves Ltd.; and DINR from Digidesign.
