Oden Fong – Invisible Man – 1986

I think this was Oden’s last solo album but I can’t be sure as the information avaiulable is not very good. Oden was originally with the band Mustard Seed Faith who had at least one Jesus Music album in 1975. As I said before, the information is scant and I actually believe there was more than that one album. This album from Oden is a great Pop album and though I missed it on the 80’s it is on my MP3 players regular rotation now. The album credits list a Rob Watson on keyboards but I don’t know of it’s the Daniel Amos Rob Watson.

  1. This is from Rob.

    “No – I’m pretty sure Oden did all his own keyboards. I seem to recall he had a Linn-9000, and I think it had midi sequencing. The keys on the track sound kind of like a D-50, and I didn’t own one of those back then.”

    Oden IS referring to this Rob Watson but Rob doesn’t recall doing anything.

    Here is the text from the album. “Keyboards: “Invisible Synths” (“Waiting For You” & “Faith/Action” – Rob Watson and Oden)”

  2. More from Rob.

    “OK – I hear my Prophet V on “Waiting” a bit – but it sounds like Oden did the high zingy stuff on the intro. “Faith…” I hear my Aries 300 on bass. It wasn’t sequenced (no midi on it) – but funny, I can’t visualize the sessions. “

  3. Oden did an album called Come to the Children in 1979 which I picked up new in Vinyl here in Australia – still one of my favourite albums of all time, but I guess it doesn’t quite make the cut for the 80’s

    1. We dabble in the 70’s and “Come to the Children” has a great sound. Stay tuned it will show up 🙂
