It is incredible that he is not on the list! One of the pioneers of moder keyboards who played with Nektar and Peter Gabriel! IMHO he is with Wendy Carlos one of the few keyboardplayers who understood the symphonic use of the different voices. Check out his arrangements of Dvorak's "Largo".

Ive been saying that all along, evidently his output is

I will be getting a scolding from Peter for being

what you think.

Larry was with PG on his first tour and album.  Great synth player.  I also bought Sequencer after hearing him with Gabriel. Had no idea he had produced so many recordings!
