So, the LP under today's cassettes should be a little easier than usual to ID, given that most of it is showing. Can anyone name it? Hint: It's the back cover.

Does the glove imply that the compilation, eh, bears examination?

@ βrian: You could be on to something. It is a surgical glove.

OK, one more hint about the mystery LP jacket -- one that almost gives it away: the band was an offshoot of The Nice.

And remember, it's the back cover.

or as richard thompson says "good things happen to bad people, but only for a while".
Avatar 12:38pm
Scraps:

I haven’t heard Jackson Heights, but I know the singer, Lee Jackson, and I laughed at a review of Jackson’s singing abilities: “Jackson's vocals are horrendous which is much more noticeable on soft acoustic numbers. At best he sounds like an asthmatic Roy Harper doing a Bob Dylan impersonation.”
Avatar 12:41pm
Tony Coulter:

Yeah, I remember reading that somewhere too! He is a pretty mediocre singer.
  12:47pm
Dean:

I dunno. I'm sampling his singing on King Progress, and it's not so bad, not at least as rock vocalists go. There's a Jorma Kaukonen kinda thing going on, though JK taps the folk vibe much better.

Speaking of Jorma, I picked up a box set of Hot Tuna records recently and I learned upon playing the first record, a live outing, that it was recorded in a venue about three blocks from my home. That space is now an auto body repair shop.
Avatar 12:53pm
Tony Coulter:

"Live from the Auto Body Repair Shop Three Blocks from Dean's House" -- I've got that one.

Tony Coulter:

Funny how of the contributors to this tape, Merzbow ended up being the breakout star. There's no real good reason for that, I'd say. Not that I don't like him....
Avatar 1:00pm
Tony Coulter:

I guess, tho, that he really kept at it, and released a zillion things. Persistence pays off.

listener james from westwood:

Yeah, I'd have thought the Riff-O-Matics' sound would've caught on more.
Avatar 1:07pm
Tony Coulter:

As far as I know, the Riff-O-Matics never recorded an album -- just some compilation tracks.
Avatar 1:15pm
Tony Coulter:

At the risk of sounding like a creepy letch, may I point out that the vocalist of Candidate is quite a looker. Here they are on French TV: www.youtube.com...

Heya, Cecile!
Avatar 1:21pm
Tony Coulter:

I'm just struck by the fact that the members of experimental/underground bands from the U.S. usually look like people who never leave their basement, whereas their European equivalents often look like fashion plates. The male member of Candidate is quite a looker too.
Avatar 1:24pm
βrian:

Among my college ilk, to describe someone as "hale and hearty" implied they were essentially drop-dead gorgeous.
Avatar 1:25pm
βrian:

Or perhaps that's "hardy."
Avatar 1:27pm
Cecile:

There is still more of a fashion/dress up culture in Europe and even on the US East Coast than in the Midwest. And we dress up compared to parts of the West Coast. My friend from Seattle who used to live here still marvels at how dressed up people are here compared to Seattle.
Avatar 1:28pm
βrian:

"Dress-up" would be a party theme in Wisconsin.

Cecile:

This Candidate could be re-issued. It's a perfect snaphot of how the B-52s, Slits and Au Pairs had such a huge impact.
Avatar 1:30pm
Tony Coulter:

This tape has not been reissued, but Candidate's somewhat later vinyl EP has been: www.discogs.com...
Avatar 1:31pm
Cecile:

Yeah, it would, Brian.
I scandalized some people back in '81 when I said blue jeans would not be allowed at my wedding. That was my only request. My husband had to loan a friend a leisure suit. I figured that they could wear jeans anywhere, but if I wanted to get that dressed up, they should respect that and do the same
Avatar 1:32pm
Cecile:

Aw bummer, Oasis isn't on there.
Avatar 1:39pm
Tony Coulter:

Plus, it's a different version of "Strange Girl," so, there's no overlap with the tape.
Avatar 1:44pm
Cecile:

Yeah, both sides of the tape should be reissued.

Our cat is named Wednesday after the Addam's family character. We didn't pick the name, but it's apt. Still, I call the cat "kitten" > "kitchen" > "chicken" and variations thereof: "kitchen window," "chicken liver." She responds to all names.
