Magnetic Eyes

Jeff Phelps - Magnetic Eyes

Magnetic Eyes, an album I composed, performed, and recorded in 1985, was done on a Tascam Portastudio 244 in one of the bedrooms in my house at the time. The equipment consisted of a Fender Rhodes suitcase electric piano, a Roland SH-101 monophonic synthesizer, an Elka piano/clavinet, an early Boss drum machine, a Radio Shack stereo microphone, an alto sax, and my sister's flute. During the project I added a Korg Poly 800 synthesizer, one of the 1st affordable synths capable of playing 8 voices at once (or 4 if layered). It was used on about half of the songs. I also had words for one song (On The Corner) that were written by my wife, Paula, as well as a great poem (Wrong Space, Wrong Time) written by Vicki Anderson (Reece) that I adapted to a song of the same name.
