Product Details
Performer Notes
  • Firesign Theatre: Phil Austin, Peter Bergman, David Ossman, Philip Proctor.
  • Producers: Gary Usher, Firesign Theatre.
  • Reissue producer: Bob Irwin.
  • Recorded in 1968. Originally released on Columbia (9518).
  • All tracks have been digitally remastered.
  • When Firesign Theatre graduated from free-form FM radio to the album format, they brought a lot of their radio experience with them. This included a thorough knowledge of media and the willingness to skewer anything and everything. Album opener "Temporarily Humboldt County" takes square aim at America's shoddy treatment of its aboriginal peoples, and scores a bulls-eye, with not a wasted word. "Beat the Reaper" is a funny game-show spoof. Much of the rest of the album drifts into less notable territory, with many references to the drug culture and being "hip" and "groovy." There's a lot of great wordplay, but quite a bit of the material doesn't date very well. ~ Sean Carruthers
