    I forgot that the song is from 1979 - but it might as well be from the 80s, just down to the way it sounds (sorta like how I associate Lisa Stansfield's first hits with what I hate about 90s production, even if they were technically still part of the 80s).

    Hmm, did they have pre-production prototypes? English Settlement was released in early 1982, recorded in 1981, and the DX7 was released in 1983...

    You are right!!! So sorry - I am mistaken! I was referring to the Prophet 5 synth, which has its own influential, storied history!

    Hoffmanites always feel that any 80's production techniques sounded "dated." Strangely, none of them have ever made such an accusation toward the music of Canned Heat.
