Barry Forgie - Anything which isn't on Mindbender
« on: July 23, 2019, 05:18:18 PM »
Stringtronics' Mindbender is surely one of my favorite library records of all time, and in particular Forgie's work on the first 6 cuts on the A-side. I'd like to dig more into the work of this relatively obscure composer. So I'm primarily requesting two of his LP's that I found.

The first one is Combustion, released 1971 on Southern Library of Recorded Music (MQ/LP 9008) and Peer International Library Ltd. (PIL 9008), then reissued in 1972 by the Spanish label Olympo (L-61). These don't seem like they're too hard to come by and a rip from either of these issues would do fine. Discogs: https://www.discogs.com/Barry-Forgie-Orchestra-Combustion/master/361641

The second one is Exotica from 1979. I'm seeing a single issue only (Southern LRM, MQ/LP 51) and high prices so this one might be tougher to find. Discogs: https://www.discogs.com/Barry-Forgie-Orchestra-Combustion/master/361641

I'd also gladly take anything else by this composer, even if it's just a few tracks on a compilation, as long as it isn't just Mindbender stuff because I got all that already.
