I'm writing this review from memory, as I last listened to the CD two weeks ago. My memory may not give me the privelidge of remembering EVERYTHING, but I do remember that this recording made the tranfer to CD just fine. The sound is quite clear, and sounds dynamic enough.
If you are a fan of 70's progressive rock, this CD should be on your list of things to get. Timo Laine plays a 360 Systems guitar synth, which is really a "controller + interface" that is used to play an Oberheim SEM based synth. If you're a fan of vintage analogue synthesizers, you'll find lots of great sounds on this CD.
The songs are well thought out and the performance is very good. Nice songs, nice sounds... what more could you ask for?

This great prog rock sound of the 70's is back in print and more affordable via Amazon.ca - better than half the current price here - but how long will it last?

So glad to see it back again as my vinyl is toast.

Symphonic Slam, just like Rush, Saga, and FM, was another progressive rock band to come out of Canada. While those other bands I mentioned are pretty well known by prog fans (particularly Rush), Symphonic Slam seemed to have ran through the cracks. They were a Toronto based band lead by Finnish born guitarist and lead vocalist Timo Laine, with keyboardist David Stone and drummer John Lowery, making them, like Rush and FM, a progressive trio. This is Symphonic Slam's debut, originally released in 1976, and in fact was originally released on a very major label here in the United States: A&M (yes, that label that was ran by Herb Alpert and gave us the likes of Styx, Supertramp, Rick Wakeman, the Carpenters, the Strawbs, Herb Alpert & the Tijuana Brass, of course, and many others). I own the A&M LP of Symphonic Slam. While Rush tended more to the metal and stadium rock end of the prog spectrum, FM had a more high tech, almost new-wavey prog sound, and Saga had a more modernized, often mainstream approach, Symphonic Slam, as the name suggested, often tended to the symphonic end, with hard rock elements. Timo Laine's vocals tended to be in the typical '70s hard rock style as well. Not only did he played guitar, but he played this ingenious contraption called the 360 Systems Polyphonic Guitar Synthesizer. 360 Systems was apparently a Los Angeles based company who had the idea of using six synthesizers, one for each string of the guitar. The result? A lot of the album sounds like polyphonic synths were used, but wasn't (yes, polyphonic synths did exist in '76 which was new technology then). Also David Stone used regular string synths, piano, and even some Mellotron. This album is not the most complex prog rock you'll ever hear, and some songs like "I Won't Cry" and "Modane Train" are rather straightforward.Read more ›

I had the opportunity top see Symphonic Slam way back when in Toronto - opening for The Strawbs, if I recollect. The group has good airplay on CHUM-FM and getting to see the group in concert was a treat. Timo Lane was one of the first to use a guitar synthesizer and did a great job of exploring this new medium, as you can tell from this release. Great album for your progressive rock collection
