Incredibly Strange

The name says it all.

The Now Sounds Of Today (Columbine)

The year and location of this record are ambiguous. However, apparently, this is apart of a series of recordings where a songwriter would submit their work through mail order to have their works performed by a professional singer. The singers on this compilation are ones named Marie Bain, Kay Weaver and Ralph Lowe. The women […]

Jackson White, MD: Deep Relaxation

I’ve had like a million of these mind control/relaxation/meditation records, but for some reason I like this one better than most. Maybe it’s the guitar accompaniment.

Ford Lile: Track of the Scarab

Masaaki Hirao

Asian Elvis dude smiles pretty for the camera. Great version of Little Richard’s “Lucille”. I honestly can’t tell if he’s singing it in broken english, or Japanese, or both.
