- 1993 UK CD A CARROT IS AS CLOSE AS A RABBIT GETS TO A DIAMOND
Insert says COMPILATION AND
SLEEVENOTES BY SIMON HOPKINS 1993 - tracks from Virgin's 5 Albums and 1 EP
('82 ``OCEANDS'') to which some lunatic has edited in short snatches
of other stuff (mostly spoken like ``APES MA'') at the start of most
tracks to create a sort of ``TROUT'' feel to it but effect is
pathetic. Compilation of 19 tracks. ``OCEANDS'' cut from the '82 EP
appears in digital form for the first time. The CD itself is an art-CD
featuring an alarming close-up of Don Vliet's 1974 moustache.
No, I'm not going to scan that "alarming close-up" of Don's mustache. I'm sorry the
scan of the cover is bad, but so is the album.
