"When they came to RG Jones, my equipment was already there,” adds Tarney. "This included a Roland Juno 60 that provided the song's main theme and which I still use, as well as a UMI computer system that a friend of mine put together, and which Vince Clark also used. That's what I used to drive the instruments"

Queen - A Kind Of Magic (most of the album made using UMI)
