|Complete Moving Sidewalks|
The packaging is cool and it comes with a booklet containing a write up by former Texas Psych Group Member Bill Bentley. Paul Drummond gets a "thanks" in the Credits. Maybe he allowed some pictures from his "collection" to be used. We all know how Paul likes to go around Texas posing as this intrepid Author, working on a book, obtaining copies of photographs from the old folks for his collection. He then, it seems, Copyrights the photos in his name and even has the balls to call his collection the Paul Drummond Collection. Anyway, thanks Paul for the picture. This just shows what a tool you really are Paul. Control, control, control... Whatever...
The sound is good but is a little loud. I only had my pre-amp at 25% volume and these tracks came BOOMING out of the speakers. They don't sound compressed to shit though. It sounds good. I just wish that *they* would have allowed me to control the volume more with my own stereo. That's the idea right? I guess the thing to do is buy the vinyl version and rip it to CD. It's a lot of trouble though and this isn't exactly the 13th Floor Elevators. Still, the CD's sound good but they are LOUD.
But, I am going to go on record stating that this collection is essential for fans of the genre. Buy it! Maybe this will move Billy Gibbons to release that fabled second album by the 'Sidewalks.
