Quick nostalgia review - The Complete Guide to Synthesizers, Sequencers and Drum Machines - 1985

You can find it on Amazon here. I also added it to the book thumbnails above.

"A quick review of a book that had colossal impact on me in 1985 as a young teenager looking to buy my first synth.

The complete guide to Synthesizers, Sequencers and Drum Machines by Dean Friedman.
I read it for hours each day, memorizing each word about the synths he goes through in the book.
I finally decided upon the Akai AX-80, pretty much because of his opinion in the book.
In 1987 the book disappeared, and now after 30 years I've got it back thanks to a member of a Facebook synth group.
It's so much fun going through this book again and many of the synths that were very new at the time the book was written has since became classics and the author was right in some of his predictions back then, and in some cases he was not.

If you have the chance to pick it up online or elsewhere I highy suggest you do so as it is so much fun to read. Even more so today than back then maybe.

The two tracks you hear in the background is from my album Those Days and you can find that on Bandcamp, Soundcloud (singles) and on all streamin platforms like Spotify and iTunes.
