About this album

From Ray Lynch’s website:

“Deep Breakfast was possible because I had already done The Sky of Mind and new technological tools had become available. One part of my character had been summarized and expressed in the previous work and I was ready to do something different - something more energetic and less “controlled”. I didn’t “plan” or prefigure the album as a whole (I never do this). I simply started writing pieces which were interesting or moving or fun, or any combination of the above and when I had enough pieces I spent a fair amount of time sequencing them until they seemed to work together. Deep Breakfast eventually went platinum (mainly through word-of-mouth, so it took a while), and it generated a lot of fan mail. Hearing from so many different kinds of people telling me how much the music meant to them was both empowering and sobering. And to some extent, it helped set the stage for the next album, No Blue Thing.”

All music composed, arranged, and produced by Ray Lynch except “The Oh of Pleasure” which was co-written by Lynch & Tom Canning.

* Ray Lynch: keyboards, piano, guitar
* Tom Canning: keyboards on #2
* Beverly Jacobs: flute
* John Strauss: viola
* George Horn and Fantasy Studios: mastering

Deep Breakfast was a hit when it was released on stations that played new age music. The music makes extensive use of Yamaha DX7, a synthesizer that is great at making bright, clean sounds. The combination of pleasurable sounds and melodies makes Lynch’s music easy to get into.

    Oh wow! Yeah, this really brings back some memories! So exciting to see and hear it here. x2 to my brother Monteiron83. He really is my brother, and I remember the tape well. It was white with purple ink and was one of the best inspiring music to listen to growing up. Thank you! :D

    My dad had the tape cassette with this when i was younger. I had this music in my head for at least 15 years. This stuff is what made my music taste what it is today. Amazing, in ways ahead of its time...thank you for your inspiration! :)

    My mom bought this album in a little store on Vancouver Island in the late 80's and I fell in love with it. Was watching the "B" movie "Jennifer's Body" and recognised a little piece of one of the songs in the movie!! So glad to have it brought back into my life!!!
