VOD146.BR1/2 BILL RHODES: Recordings 1982-88

Bill Rhodes is a highly prolific and multi-talented artist/performer.
He is one of very few artists able to compose in orchestral and multi-instrumental perspectives.
 
Bill released his recordings between 1980 and 1983 with his progressive-rock-formation Everfriend on his own label "Jazzical Records".
 
While his Everfriend Recordings were mostly released on Vinyl between 1980-1983 ('Tropicshere', 'Sphere of Influence' and 'Shoot To Kill') with just one exception being the tape 'Key Essentials" from 1982,
his electronic/synthesist-Solo-Works as Bill Rhodes were primarily released on Tapes during the Mid to late 80's with the exception of Mind Break, a beautiful athmospheric Vinyl-release from 1985
 
In late 80's and early 90's  his music got on the Radar of Klaus Schulzes Innovative Communication Label and IC released a series of CD's covering his 80's works but in a digitally remastered and remixed form.
 
This compilation gives you a chance to listen to the original tape-Recordings with a nice natural and warm athomsphere and wonderful minimal/synth-Tunes integrating also other instruments such as bass, guitar, piano and more that enhance the diversity of his multi-instrumental compositions.
