Aside from the obvious appeal of the cover art, this is a very strong collection of quirky/funny/weird synthesizer music from some of the biggest names in library music. Tracks like "Round Up", "Movin' Along", "Ergon" and "Three D (A)" are pure pop synth bliss. "Technischer Bewegungsablauf" is perfect for turning up way too loud on your stereo. while "Keystone Capers (2)", "Children's Carnival" and "Jolly Pranks" are playful little gems that beg to be listened to again and again. 15 years on from it's original release this compilation still has massive appeal and rightly so.

For those who are interested, the pictures included in both Volumes 1 and 2 are by Bunny Yeager who photographed more beautiful ladies than I've had hot dinners. Below is a shot of Bunny and some more of her work. Enjoy.
