Here is an odd release by Randy Lewis who's musical career is a bit of a mystery.
He was part of a team staffing the generic Desitrek Recordings studio in Portland Oregon throughout the 80's.
Relatives/partners credited were Lindsey Lewis and Jan Lewis suggesting the Janrandy Music production logo.

The EP was released privately on RL's own label, Heat Warps records with catalog number 002 but searching for 001 or 003 brings up nothing.

The cover is a flimsy folded piece of paper with the disc slipped in requiring an additional sleeve to keep it all together.

The pressing is a 7" running at 33 rpm, an odd EP format from the early 70's carrying ~16 minutes of music.
The poor pressing combined with low speed was more practical than HiFi quality.

Finally the music is surprising for a US release back in 1981.
The 7:44 long title track is made up from three tracks distinctively influenced by Ashra, Jarre and Schulze's Mirage.

Mechanized man on the B side is a TD influence of Cloudburst flight.

Researching the release I found one cassette involving Randy Lewis as publisher in the form of a Christmas songs from 1986 played on (very) digital synths by 3 other guys sounding like a Geoff Downes progressive keyboards style.

Reciently heard, and bought, both CDs by a band called Eccentric Orbit. It's prog rock with one foot in the 70s , and they're taking up most of my listening time. You can check them out at
