Now Playing: Francesco Lavagnino "Lost Continent" OST

Steve Zahradnik of SEICHE dropped by to say that of the original LP, only 50 copies had the color cover; the rest came in plain white sleeves. The Seiche update below has been amended with this data.

Garage guru G.G informs me that the WAILERS' swansong LP Walk Thru The People exists in Mono, but only as a promo. Stock copies are all stereo.

In case there was any doubt, I can now verify 100% that the 45s from DAMON's classic private press trance beast Song Of A Gypsy are MONO mixes and thus unique versions different from the LP. As the old adage says, the rockinger a track is, the better it will sound in mono, and the 45 only mix of "Poor Poor Genie" is quite possibly better than the LP version. On the other hand, the flipside's downtempo "Don't You Feel Me" gained nothing from the 45 mono mix. The other 45 from the LP (with a non-LP composition even) is of course likely to be mono too, though I don't have it on hand. Seems a bit late do to mono mixes in 1969-70, but some people did.

Via Klemen B's interview with Grand Theft/Bluebird I have now received confirmation of the Acid Archives theory that Bluebird picked up "Cantaloupe Island" from the live set of local Pac NW heroes Daily Flash. Word on the supposed unreleased Bluebird album from the early '70s remains unclear, however.

I finally located the complete (I think) promo package for Capitol's amazing and classic documentary LP "L.S.D" from 1966. The kit consists of a printed outer folder, a letter about the LP, a few pages about Larry Schiller and the project, and three photo prints, two of which appear on the LP sleeve, but the third one is unique and shows Allen Ginsberg and a Capitol big wig listening to the recordings while cracking up; perhaps the bad trip of poor 'Brian' was on.
