Her "Beauty in the Beast" album is wonderful.

Hi,

thanks for bringing this back to my attention - I was looking for it a while ago, but now I actually bought the vinyl record on Ebay :) . Oh, and of course the record is pre-"Wendy" (i.e. "Walter" ) ;) .
Don't forget to TURN ON THE SYNTHESIZER. Often this is the reason why you get no sound out of it. - ARP 2600 manual, 1971

There must have been some mistake on the listing, because all I can see is a box set at over $250 and individual cds for more than $50 apiece... Or one really low priced box set that sold immediatly!
Available for sale:
-Chamber of Sounds Jupiter III (mk1) & Jupiter T (mk1)
-The Complete DX7- Howard Massey (with original enclosed sounds on soft disks)

Hm, sorry 'bout that. When I looked, the individual albums were going for almost $100 and the box set was about $180.

No problem. IMHO, it's still way too high for some cds anyway...

Yeah...supply and demand I guess. Too bad there's something weird holding down the supply.

Hey, I don't know if you're still looking, but I literally just registered because I think I found what you're looking for.

Somehow I doubt that those archives have Wendy's permission...with my moderator hat on, I will leave the last post up for now but it is pushing the line on our rules.

It is a shame that she hasn't seen fit to make her catalog available as paid downloads.

She hasn't posted anything on her site since 2007.
I listened to Hatfield and the North at Rainbow. They were very wonderful and they made my heart a prisoner.
