Home-brewed kosmisch ascension of the highest order from stay at home synth explorer and minimalist composer J.D. Emmanuel with his self-proclaimed career high watermark - 1982 privately released LP Wizards. With a hefty dose of Terry Riley's influence checked, Emmanuel lays down softly lapping organ arpeggios and slowly developing, expansive sonic vistas - a third-eye opening experience processed with that retro-yet-ageless straight to tape compression that only adds to nostalgia of the halcyon days of early synth exploration where anything was / is possible. With recordings of this ilk somewhat ubiquitous and varying in quality (bar Terry Riley's Dervishes pieces) save the yourself the time of scouring Discogs as this is the one you're looking for.. (NM/NM).
