Doctor Evil's Laser - The Lost Finale (LSP)


No artwork

Get Flash to see this player.

Description
This finale song was to have mirrored the intro piece using a variant of its patterns but also referencing the band's history with a stylistic nod to earlier work. Initially was to have wound up this particular album but never got past the demo stage...... probably because the band didn't keep their eye on the ball. Know the album?

Hmmm ...
It's nice ... but I've no idea what it is!

Has a kind of 70s big production feel to it, but that's as far as I've got.

Thanks Rebsie!
This band - if band is the proper word to use - was indeed put together in the 70s (5 points there!) and carried on into the 80s as well. They often used a rather grand orchestral style in some of their pieces.

Glad you liked it, and you get a 5 point bonus for being the first to comment!! :o)

Cheers,
Doug

Wow!
Has an 80's sound to my ears. Unfortunately, that's the era I'm most unfamiliar with as I skipped most of it. So, of course, I haven't a clue as to the album...

But this is really nice...big and majestic!

Be well friend!
Doug Somers said 4281 days ago (December 1st, 2007)
The 80s kind of slid by
for me as well. These musicians did release new albums into the 80s, so like Rebsie, you collect points too!

Thanks for your comments - like that majestic adjective!
Keep well,
Doug

tricky one
Its not something by Tangerine Dream or Mike Oldfield? Like the orchestral feel of it?
Check out my latest song called Out of Reach
Doug Somers said 4281 days ago (December 1st, 2007)
No, but I have to admit that when I listened to the guitar
in the last repeat, the sound is very much like Oldfield. I can get the TD references too. Close, but no cigar my friend. Thanks for the comments!

Actually reminds me of
The opening of the Floyd's Atom Heart Mother in a way - minus the orchestra. But I have a feeling I'm way off base.
Check out my latest song called mixer 2
Doug Somers said 4281 days ago (December 1st, 2007)
That's a Pink Floyd album I don't know
But, take consolation that you're right - you are off base. :o)
Thanks for stopping by!

Although not too far off in a way.....
There is a connection, so you are producing some warmth in your guess.

Doug Somers said 4275 days ago (December 8th, 2007)
Parsons produced Floyd
Or at least some of their work like Dark Side of the Moon. So the influence is there. Good call.

Mystified said 4281 days ago (December 1st, 2007)
yeah...
Now here is one that I might know! (oooh...it's a miracle!)

I have to agree with SmokeyVW and The Alan Parsons Project.
I had a roommate in college who introduced me to their music...though she only had a couple of their albums.

I'm guessing this one is from I Robot, if it is Alan Parsons.

'Whoever' it is...I like it! :D

Epileptic Gibbon said 4281 days ago (December 1st, 2007)
I have to admit
that I was veering towards Steve's suggestion of Tangerine Dream. But I sense a move towards Alan Parson's Project. That would make sense too. It might also explain why some people are mentioning Pink Floyd given the Alan Parsons connection.
Check out my latest song called Fiddler Off the Roof w/Komrade K & Caroline
Doug Somers said 4273 days ago (December 9th, 2007)
All true
Tangerine Dream is another great group but your AP leanings are on the mark.

Thanks for coming by!

Peter Bauckham said 4281 days ago (December 1st, 2007)
I still trying
to guess - It does remind me of The Alan Parsons Project's ealier stuff - perhaps 'I Robot' - But your notes make me think 'Eye in the Sky' which was a little later I think...

to go along with Alan Parsons Project as well. Which album? boy i can't remember, it's been so long.

terrific piece

Doug Somers said 4271 days ago (December 11th, 2007)
Yes, it has been a long time
since this music was kicking around. Your guess nailed the group in one go, so the memory can't be too foggy. :o)
Glad you liked this piece!

Alan Parsons!
I'd bet a dozen Tim Horton's butter tarts it's Alan Parsons! Sounds like Sirius, but there's a real touch of Pyramid here too - one of my fav albums. Is it from Eye In The Sky?

Excellent piece of music, Doug. I can almost hear Chris Rainbow singing vocals over this.

Okay, Al Parsons, Eye In The Sky. That's my final guess.

but don't know the album.
You have surpassed yourself with this track, its brilliant. I would have to say that this is your best compostion and production track that you have submitted so far. Very well done Doug, I'm impressed.

Great guess. It references the finale of I Robot but also contains later elements too.

Very nice-
but I haven't a clue. I saw a few guesses for Alan Parsons, which I'm not that familiar with, but would lean towards as a guess :)
Doug Somers said 4275 days ago (December 7th, 2007)
Gotta mention
that I love your burning question icon. Very cool.

Going with the flow on the guessing can't hurt.....or can it??

Anyway, glad you enjoyed this one.

Cool track, Doug.
Cool track, Doug. Must have been fun to plan out and record. It has a definite rock-opera feel to it. Maybe 'cinematic' would be a better word.

Hi John
Sorry for the late reply - busy times around the holidays. Glad you liked this one. It didn't take too much planning for this since the early Alan Parsons music was fairly well burned into my grey matter during university. It was just a matter of sitting down and letting the music out. I'm working with my son Mike on a remix which is nearly done, but it has been a little slow going due to Christmas preparations for me and end of term papers for him.

BTW, I'll be getting Ivory for Christmas and am really looking forward to trying it out.

Hope all is well with you, and thanks again for stopping by and leaving your kind remarks.

All the best, and Merry Christmas!

Love it
The keyboards are incredible in this song! Very spooky....... I love it.... You might want to build this one out more. Too short LOL!
Check out my latest song called Perfect Stranger (with Gaylen75)
Doug Somers said 3825 days ago (March 1st, 2009)
Definitely too short
and yet I don't have an inspiration for what I would do with it. Maybe some day.... I know that the build for some of the groups of that era could go on for a long time. I don't play guitar well enough to wail away in a solo for a few minutes. Anyway, thanks for the strong vote of confidence on this one and should I ever get back to it maybe you'd be up to a collab and help me develop this more?

Thanks again for your kind remarks.

I don't know what might be happening but try again later and see if the problem had anything to do with something wrong at the MacJams server end of things. If you are still really stuck let me know and I can shoot it over to you via YouSendIt.
