Patrick Williams - Threshold (1973)
When I went to see Frank Zappa at the Civic Center Music Hall in Oklahoma City on 8 October 1975, there was incredible music playing before the show, so I walked over to the soundboard and asked what was playing and it was "Threshold" by Patrick Williams. I went out and bought the album as soon as I could!!!

Recorded at Cabaret Voltaire's Western Works Studio and Produced by 23 Skidoo, Stephen Mallinder and Ken Thomas for Fetish Records in July 1981.
One of the greatest tracks of all time!!!

Jimmie Spheeris - The Dragon Is Dancing (SIYS Extended Edit) (1975-2010)
Featuring Chick Corea on electric piano & mini moog.
Believe it or not, this gem of a song had never been uploaded to the Internet, so I posted it to Youtube. This is an extended edit that keeps intact the nice harp ending that segues into the beginning of the next track Sighs In A Shell.

Morpheus - That's Evil Man (Take A Trip) (Freakout Overture / Club Mix) (1992)
I own this vinyl EP, but no longer have a working turntable, so I searched for years to find this song online with no luck. Finally, I found a rare copy of the promo CD on eBay and now finally this can be heard online.
I selected what I believe is the best version, the "Freakout Overture / Club Mix" to share here.
