Canadian Synth Pioneer Bruce Haack Remembered with 'Electric Lucifer Book II' Reissue
Published Jun 11, 2014Bruce Haack passed away in 1988, but the Canadian synth trailblazer is not forgotten. His album Electric Lucifer Book II will be reissued on August 5 through Telephone Explosion Records.
The album was made close to a decade after Haack's 1970 album The Electric Lucifer, but it remained unreleased until well after his death. It finally came out through German label Q.D.K. Media in 2001.
The cover artwork (above) is different for this Telephone Explosion pressing, although the tracklist (below) is the same. At the bottom of this page, hear the low-key vocoder track "Stand Up Lazarus."
The pre-order price is a reasonable $13 for a vinyl copy. It's available right here.

2. Ancient Mariner
3. Stand Up Lazaras
4. Hookin for the Honey
5. Just a Song at Twilight
