A great CD compilation of bizarre, out-of-print records!

"INCREDIBLY STRANGE MUSIC is one of those CD coms that you don't want to miss. Bob Peck's SWEET 16 is reason enough to buy this CD. The Perry & Kingsley moog track is outer space beauty and the Kali sitar song at the end is mystical magic. Wonderful compilation of music you will never hear (or see) anywhere else... END"

"This is a compilation of oddball songs from some mostly rare albums from the '50s and '60s. All the songs come from the same person's record collection, and they have been transfered directly from the albums to CD. Some of the albums are rather worn out, so you can hear scratches on most of the songs here. But somehow that justs adds to the charm, like someone invited you to their house to listen to their old records. All the songs here are pretty strange, with 9 of the 13 tracks being instrumentals. The songs with lyrics are comedy songs, with the exception of Kali Bahlu's "A Cosmic Telephone Call", which a bizarre 11 minute recounting of a telephone conversation she had with Buddha(!). The instrumentals include guitar instrumentals, sound effects instrumentals, xylophone instrumentals, sitar instrumentals, percussion instrumentals, Moog instrumentals, accordian instrumentals and whistling instrumentals. This CD is a lot of fun, and it should appeal to fans of "cool and strange" music."

"You've just had a great first date with that special someone-- dinner or a movie. Things are really going well, and now you're back at your apartment, setting a romantic mood.... Put this CD on and see how your date reacts. Does he/she look oddly at you as Buddy Merrill's speeded-up guitar plucks out "Busy Bee" on the first cut? Do the synthesized farts and beeps on Dean Elliot's "Lonesome Road" upset him/her? And what reaction to the 6th cut, the absolutely indescribable "Up, Up & Away" by Rajput & The Sepoy-- a sitar classic that causes the strongest of men either to wince or to giggle? If your date is still there after all this, you've found a keeper: open-minded enough to put up with incredibly strange music and with someone who plays it with pride.
Read the RE/search book (available over there in the book section) that goes with this to really get the full effect of these completely bizarre selections. This is part of your EDUCATION, bunky...."
