Gulliver's Travels - 1968

Now this one is an odd artifact. With the Rolling Stones' manufacturer Andrew Loog Oldham at the helm, this is theoretically a conception slice of the nominal Gulliver. In use, this doesn't truly go away at all. What we have instead is a really earlier instance of what might now be considered sampling or a mash-up. The results are ever intriguing, if not ever amazing. This LP includes oodles of unlicensed harvesting from lot of period records, including the Small Faces, the Lovin' Spoonful, the 20th Century Fox fanfare, oodles of catalogue simple listening, and a piece of the Zodiac. It's heavily for me to still see away what was was created for the album and what was brought in from elsewhere as I oasis's heard every freaked away album from 1967-1968.

What we're left with so is the sonic travel itself, and it's pretty pleasant. We'll hurl musicianship out the window and concentrate on aspects more that we'd feel at with contemporary electronic DJs. The album tracks are inconceivable to make away, with simply the album sides marking a recess in the music, as contemporary mixture albums are limited by CD duration. It's sort of humor to hear to just to make away what you can know and what you can't. The album is like an extremely lysergic K-Tel mixture of oddities. Even among the uncontrolled experiment of the 60's, Gulliver's Travels is something else so. Giving this a hear is kind of like presenting yourself with a sonic quiz. Let's view how you do.
