Tommy Mandel Albums

A click on the cover here takes you to a Spotify Playlist of the Album

Collection of the less cringeworthy songs I wrote, recorded and sang in the 80s over synths and live instrumentation.
(credits at bottom of page)
Synth-strumentals recorded direct to DAT from LinnSequencer and lots of synths. Pet Sounds or Pet Shop Boys?
Psychedelic Travelogue recorded at SongShop Studios early 80’s. Hilly Michaels drums. Zenobia co-vocals. Tom Morrongiello guitars. Wayne Vlcan co-produced. Jean Petrucelli exec. producer.
More synth-strumentals! Some good ones!
Some of these appear on InnerCities Records’ 2019 vinyl release, Mello Magic.
The first 7 here are a song cycle featuring great vocalists like Joe Cerisano, Pete Hewlett, Marianne Faithful, Zenobia, Jeff Southworth & Frannie Faith Southworth.
More Synth-strumentals, as the gear got fresher, sampling took off, and mistakes were learned from.
Synth-strumentals and Atmospherics!
Solo Piano.
Meditation music in the style of George Winston, Wilhelm Reich, and George Washington.
