1977 saw the first Space album, Magic Fly, which led the way in European electronic disco music.
Later that same year came Deliverence, a superb follow up which demostrated that Magic Fly was no one off hit.
The openning track, Prison and the closer, Deliverence, are vocal tracks, while the remaining 4 are instrumental, including interesting titles such as Let Me Know The Wonder and Baby's Paradise.
The 6 bonus tracks are of the same high standard, they are Inner Voices, Space Media, Tender Force, Robots, On The Air and Deeper Zone.
3 are from their 4th album Deeper Zone, while the other 3 come from, well I don't know !
If you like electronic music Space are up there with the best of Wendy Carlos, Tomita, Vangelis, Rick Wakeman and Jean Michel Jarre.

A brilliant album, every bit as good as Magic Fly - the bonus track based on J S Bach's Air on A G String is just about the ultimate in chill-out listening.

HASH(0x8b9c7054) out of 5 stars Discover "SPACE"! 7 Feb. 2009
By Mario A. Nunez - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
"SPACE" was ahead of its time. SPACE was a French electronic music band from Marseilles, active from 1977 through 1980. In Europe, they have staged returns with on-stage "remake performances" since 1992. They are currently considered as one of the most notable artists of the short lived space disco music scene (a variation of Hi-NRG Disco and part of 70s Eurodisco) and early pioneers of the Eurodance electronica subgenre.

Space was founded in 1977 by Didier Marouani (also known as Ecama), Roland Romanelli, and Jannick Top. The first three albums -- Magic Fly, Deliverance and Just Blue -- were an immediate success (they sold over 12 million records all over the world). The album Magic Fly, which is widely considered to be their best work, was released in audio cd in 2001, 24 years after its original release. Since the band was signed in the US by Casablanca Records (or Giorgio Moroder and Donna Summer fame), many of their songs feature the same back up singers as those songs produced by the "fab" producer duo of Giorgio Moroder and Peter Bellotte. Although Didier Marouani left the band in 1979, the other two members Roland Romanelli and Jannick Top released in 1980 the album Deeper Zone under the name of Space. Then Space officially split up in 1981.

SPACE's music is ethereal, and with an Euro feel similar to contemporaries Kraftwerk (but not with their musical and lyrical references to industrialism and the souless modern age) and is full of melodic and self-referential movements, reminiscent of classical music's "leif motifs". Their music seamless blends orchestral arrangements and electronic effects, complemented by a heavy disco base drumming elegantly in the background, and guitar base and "wa-wa" riffs. Sparse vocals tiltillate the ear but do not overwhelm the instrumental focus of their pieces.

My favorite album is "Deliverance", with its Dali-esque cover of a naked woman floating in the desert (the original album opened up to a tryptic showing the car only partially viewed as a Rolls Royce).

I recommend this album to any fan of 1970's dance music, but specially to those who like elegant instrumentals with full orchestration and rich, layered sound (á la USA Connection's "Beautiful Bend" or Jumbo's "Turn On To Love").

HASH(0x8bb924e0) out of 5 stars Magic Fly Very Good, Deliverance Even Better! 22 May 2010
By J. Thompson - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Space debuted with Magic Fly, European electronic disco music, in 1977 and it certainly caught my ear, in particular the instrumental tracks that make up the vast majority of the album.
Later the same year came Deliverance and to my mind it surpassed the first release.
The vocal tracks are very good, Prison and especially the haunting title track.
Let Me Know The Wonder and Baby's Paradise are slower paced Rick Wakemen sounding efforts and very enjoyable too.
Running In The City and Air Force are faster tracks which work very well.
My copy has 6 bonus tracks, all from the 1980 Deeper Zone, missing here are Mixed Up and Love Starring You And Me.
The outstanding selection here is On The Air, a co write with a certain J.S.Bach and the rest is OK as well.
Recommended for fans of electronic music everywhere.
