From Alex Ball.
This was a very special opportunity indeed, and I really hope you enjoy it.
In a nutshell, I got hold of an E-mu SP-12 from the 80s and then discovered that a friend, Andrew Ward, has some of Phil Collins and Mike Rutherford’s original floppy discs for it that are part of his Genesis equipment collection.
Chris Poacher leant us a floppy drive and I fired up the discs, possibly for the first time in over 30 years. In this video, we find out what I discovered!
