This instrumental number was on a mainstream rock release that was out in order for me to borrow and tape-record off of in the vicinity of 1986. Let’s say 88 at the absolute latest. Could’ve been around for quite some time before that.
Obviously I can’t easily Google it, since there are no lyrics for me to search on. Gonna be a bit difficult for me to describe it here either…
Minor key. Languid pace. Mildly techno-synthy but without percussive or space-alien stuff. Easy to imagine someone like James Bond or Top Cat driving slowly down the boulevard in a Packard Twin Six with this playing.
Here is a tiny excerpt, or pair of excerpts about 10 seconds each for a total of 20, which should be sufficiently abbreviated to be inoffensive vis-a-vis intellectual property concerns, but should confirm or invalidate anyone’s suspicions re: whether or not they know of which piece I speak.
