What's All This Then

Why should I care what this guy has to say?

The correct answer is that you shouldn’t. We’re all entitled to our opinions. Develop your own. I try to be sane and rational, but that may change with the level of caffeine intake. I’m just telling my stories in the hopes they may amuse and/or inform others. And... I Confess... I'm showing off my bitchen collection a bit.

Living Guitars Get Stoned

Living Strings. Living Voices. Living Brass. Living Marimbas.    Such are the released on RCA Camden, RCA's budget line named after the factory town in New Jersey.

Their MO was to take low rent orchestras, record them for cheap, rename them Living [something] and sell them for a bargain price.

I suppose they said the strings and other instruments we living so they didn't have to credit (or pay) the musicians who played them.

Here's a fairly odd one.....

Living Guitars Play Songs Made Famous by The Rolling Stones (RCA Camden 1971)

I gather the cover to be a representation of the slave trade so glorified in Brown Sugar.

On the back we get a picture of the palm tree Keith Richards would fall out of 40 years after this release.
