Loved this album in the early 90's and have not listened to it in years! I met him when he wrote some music for Alesis to demo ADAT's at Namm.... If I recall, he ended up starting a company that made ringtones on cell phones possible, or something like that. Brilliant guy.

“… Zoom it. Vacuum it’”

Favorite use of “vacuum” in a song lyric.

Thanks for posting!
I do admire his work.

This is probably my favorite of Dolby.

Love that album - I sang “Blinded Me With Science” and “The Ability to Swing” in my first casino band in Reno!

At a Dennis Chambers clinic (a looong time ago) I recall him mentioning this album. I think he played on a track or two.
