Residents - A Nickle If Your Dick’s This Big (1971-1972) pREServed Edition (expanded / remastered) 2 x CDs

SKU 21-NRT 999
This is very interesting, as it is the most complete set of recordings that you can buy (now or ever!) of the pre “Meet The Residents” recordings by the group.
There is a lot of interesting stuff here and it also shows you that, somehow, between these only slightly earlier recordings and the recording of “Meet The Residents”, they made a huge leap in what they were able to accomplish on their recordings.

“Released on CD for the first time, this set captures the group's earliest work - two legendary album length demo tapes and three live recordings made under the direction of their mentor, The Mysterious N. Senada, between the Springs of 1971 and 1972.
Packed with non-songs, poetry, mutant cover versions, sonic experiments and ambitious suites, 'The Warner Brothers Album' and 'Baby Sex' set the groundwork for all that was to follow in the studio, whilst the three live recordings show the group - then a large, rambling collective rather than anything resembling a band - exploring the live-show-as-performance-art space they continue to inhabit to this day.
This is must-hear material for both fans of The Residents and those interested in post-hippy, pre-punk DIY avant-garde experimentalism.”
