The Byrds – Byrdmaniax

The Byrds - Byrdmaniax DS487p front

Although Allmusic doesn’t give it a great review, i  like it. It should be noted that if you know the stereo mix then you’ll find say the quad mix is quite different. It didn’t do too well in the charts in the USA, so that’s possibly why the quad version was only released in Japan.

To me this sounds like they played a stereo tape into a reverb unit then encoded the result….

The Firesign Theatre – Everything You Know Is Wrong

9 May

The Firesign Theatre - Everything You Know Is Wrong CB046 frontLink

Welcome Seekers…… everything you know is wrong! What can I say to entice you to give this a spin? How about real gas music from Jupiter. Or characters such as daredemon Reebus Cannibis, Gary the Seeker, “Happy” Harry Cox or Nino Savatte the Mindboggler. At last the hole truth! Interestingly the LP cover crops the flying saucer on the right while the Q8 label is uncropped. The saucer appears to be escaping its two dimensional domain. You may too. Beware repeated playing may cause unpredictable long term side effects. I would like to leave you with this closing thought. “You know a cave just really is a hole on its side Ray.” Enjoy CB.
