Also a track from a CD it has taken me literally years to track down and buy a copy of -- but finally succeeded
'Tama' by Tonto's Expanding Head Band - very spacey  ;D
No I haven't lost it - they really did exist - a very early prog. rock / synth band - if anyone else out there remembers them please own up  ;D

I had never heard of them, but I see that the album 'Tonto rides again' is on grooveshark.

Hey thanks pluk - Sadly 'Tama' isn't on there but 'Aurora' is another good track  :)

My new fave music for classifying - although not new ....
The title music from the film Starman - just downloaded it the other day - perfect  :)

Yeah  ;D  Brilliant!
Except for my brother who also used to listen to them years ago - I've never known anyone else who's heard of them

I don't think I ever heard them, but I certainly remember the name - probably used to read it in Melody Maker or some such!  :D

Since you have the album, you can put it up there yourself.

Oooooh!!  Excellent! ;) <"making a leg">  Both of them have choral versions that are among the most beautiful works for the human voice, ever!  (Lux Aeterna & Agnus Dei, respectively [major senior moment])  You are obviously one classy dame of great discernment! :D

Thread resurrection!

Today I've been classifying galaxies to Francis Poulenc playing Perpetual Motion, followed by his performances of his friend Erik Satie's music.
The album is "Francis Poulenc Plays Satie and Poulenc" and comes highly recommended.

Galaxies and Satie/Poulenc go *really* well together  :)
