Vinyl LP repressing of this 1981 album from the Portland-based musician. Paul grew up around Portland and had a strong background in music and music theory. He built a PAIA synthesizer when he in junior high and developed a keen intuition into analog synthesis. Eventually he purchased a Mini-Moog and was very influenced by Alan Parsons, ELP, and Eno. Armed with more gear as time went on, Paul was offered an opportunity to record his own album which led to the Recording Associates sessions during which Vortex was born. 1000 copies were originally pressed and self-distributed by Paul. The LP takes many twists and turns with many tracks of sequenced pulsations, electronic drums, and rhythms reminiscent of the Sci-fi soundtracks mixed with a healthy dose of almost prog space/cosmic disco crossed with later-age Tangerine Dream. Features exact reproduction of the front and infamous back covers. Contains bonus insert with in-depth interview with Paul Nelson by Else Teicher.
