That's funny! My mother came home with a second-hand copy of 'Electronic
Music', as a result of which I've always had a soft spot for 'Oklahoma'. :-.

Is this the 'Electronic Music' LP which features Mimaroglu's 'Le Tombeau
d'Edgar Poe'? That was an early 2nd-hand listen for me, too... Yet
surprisingly, he seems to be an unknown name even to many educated

Twang twang....

If the Glitter (ahem indeed) is 'Rock 'n' Roll Part 2', may I recommend the
synthesised version by the (original) Human League as a suitable
replacement? No? OK...
