First time on CD for this long-lost New Wave classic by the eclectic synthpop duo EBN-OZN (AKA Ned Liben and Robert Rosen). Features the massive radio and MTV hits "AEIOU Sometimes Y" and 'Bag Lady (I Wonder)". This album combines a wry sense of humor with clever arrangements, catchy melodies, World Beat rhythms and a guest appearance from Tito Puente! Wounded Bird. 2006.
A fantastic synth pop treasure!!!!!

"EBN-OZN are best known for "AEIOU Sometimes Y" and "Bag Lady", but they're lone album "Feeling Cavalier" is a fantastic synth pop treasure with lots of other great songs besides the two they're best known for, such as "Stop Stop Give It Up" (which was another single, but didn't have a video. I think it was only issued as a promo though.), Kuchenga Pamoja, Video D.J. and a crazy, but fun cover of Rockin' Robin, just to name a few. EBN died in 1998, but I don't know where OZN is now. I guess he's still involved in the film business, but he doesn't have an official site or anything. Anyway, "Feeling Cavalier" is an album that every 80's fan and/or synth pop fan shouldn't be without!!!!!"

"I am glad to have finally added the digital version of this to my collection. I had the original vinyl back in the day and I loved it's quirky subject matter and classic 80s synth pop sound. Ned Liben (EBN) was the composer who sculpted the synth sound. I believe that he went on to work with Scritti Politti and, sadly, died in 1998 of a heart attack. I was a member of the Kurzweil K2000 User Group back then and one of the other members was close to him and his wife. He said that they had mastered a digital version of the album for release and it was just a matter of time before it became available. Well, I am glad to finally own it.
The only reason that I didn't give this a 5-Star rating is because I really wish that it included the remixes of "Bag Lady" and "AEIOU and Sometimes Y."
Enjoy and relive the memories..."

"I bought "Feeling Cavalier" by EBN-OZN because I had a vague memory from back in the 80s of the song "AEIOU Sometimes Y".So I did a search and found it, ordered it at a fair price I thought.I really enjoyed "AEIOU Somtimes Y" and there is another gem on it called "Bag Lady(I Wonder)".These two songs are a real piece of work, the other songs are just filler. Overall I am not dissapointed with my purchase"
