This is the kind of album that just keeps me going. When a friend played this for me earlier this year, I almost fell off my chair when I heard it from beginning to end. It's so beautifully and wildly progressive but in a pop dimension, with an electric California nuttiness, sunny and crazy, that is utterly beyond compare.
When I thought about posting this copy, which is from an Asian bootleg CD, I looked at the back and realized with a shock the LP seems to have 10 tracks, not the 9 on the CD. And in fact it seemed suspiciously short as an album, less than 30 minutes. So the explanation has to be that a track was left off and can only now be found on the LP or anyone who actually copied it. I wonder if Tom Hayes in particular knows anything about this.
Note that earlier this year, the LP sold for 390 USD. Now I believe this album is just fantastic, but I don't think I would ever pay that much for one record. Especially since someone I trade with might someday get a copy of a CDR for nothing.
How did these kids write these songs with so much creativity and originality back then? Btw the songwriter for all the music is Leon D. Nahat, presumably his nickname was Ilian.... And whatever happened to Leon Nahat, like Karlos P. Steinblast from prognotfrog?
"hey Denise, my lovely sister
all the boys want to be your babysitter
so lift yourself and continue to shine
and tell all the boys to wait in line!
I'll be there to help ya
and find the one who will make you happy
and don't go jumpin' for the kid named Sammy...."
Incredible. No, of course, don't go for that kid named Sammy (?Snappy)
