Totally agree, this is essential listening! I saw some John Carpenter fan on Amazon bitching about how terrible it was and how he thought "it was an actual JC CD and he got ripped off blah blah blah....."

Clearly the man had no freakin soul and I know I am going out on a limb here but even as a huge fan of the films and music of Mr. C., there are some tracks on here that I prefer to the original..heresy I know!

Sure you must have already posted the P.L. records they did as well....the covers of Kraftwerk and Pete Shelley are similarly essential.

I have the Splash Band CD on my to buy list as it is pretty soon as I do, I will post a 320 rip for everyone.

Here is a rip of the Philadelphia Experiment track for the poster above:

I forgot to ask...I was looking for the 2009 post of Georges Rodi's 'Actual 2' on libraryhunt...with the magic of google reader I brought libraryhunt back to life and went back to the post and the mediafire link is dead..boohoo.

Is there another link for this album?

Here it is Saucer peep!

Many thanks for the Georges Rodi link Dirkson, your kindness is most appreciated!

His 'Space' and 'Spaciology' albums seem to be minor cosmic disco holy grails and it is suprising no library related blog has posted them yet though with 'Space' fetching a 100+ Euros I guess it is not that odd!
