The Douglas Brothers – 2002 R.F.D.

R.F.D. (Rural Free Delivery) was developed in the 1890s so rural dwellers wouldn’t need to trek to the nearest post office to pick up their mail.

“2002 R.F.D.” is naturally a rural rendition of the ever-reliable “Theme from 2001: A Space Odyssey,” aka “Also Sprach Zarathustra” by Richard Strauss.  A disappointing recording of this tune is seldom found.

Note the tag line for the label, Another Record Company:
“Just What The World Needs!”

    Beautiful!
    It also makes use of stereo imaging in a way that would make Enoch Light proud.
    Wonderfully horrid!
