I enjoyed the NIck-Nack although I found the vocals a little over the top

October Country said...

Never heard of this band but I like what I hear
Can't get enough of obscure US prog -
Thank you!

Well my friend,
here's a sweet summer treat that I'm very happy to finally share with everyone
(and a significant upgrade to the tired old crappy-sounding rip that's been recycled everywhere)

by The Open Window (Peter Schickele, Stanley Walden & Robert Dennis)
1969 on Vanguard ...and still never released on cd anywhere
Ripped from my excellent condition LP and Strongly Recommended to all!

1. Wild Bill Hickock Rides Again
2. At the Wedding
3. 4:00 A.M., June; The Sky Was Green
4. Soldier's Song, From The Last War, For The Next
5. The Girl From Tarentum
6. Italian Symphony
7. Piece By The New Guy
8. Piano Concerto No.1 In G Major
9. The Priests Of The Raven Of Dawn
10. Curtan Call ("Circus")

……… ………
(WAV files - sounds completely Killer - this is the one!)

……… ………
(320 mp3)

...from the back cover:

Happily, the boundaries are shifting.

The Open Window has been described by reviewers as a chamber-rock-jazz trio, a pop-classical ensemble, and a folk-rock-raga group, and all the names fit, except that they leave out the honky-tonk piano rolls and Russian chants.

These three musicians take it all apart, and when they put it back together again, it's something new: a batch of songs, non-songs, and sort-of-songs ----- music that will engage your mind and your toe and anything else you leave exposed to it.

...some of the songs have footnotes in parentheses, here's the important ones:
2. At The Wedding (A large one, with all the relatives, some of whom come from as far away as Odessa and Brest-Litovsk)
4. Soldier's Song, From The Last War, For The Next
(The words were made up by German soldiers retreating from Russia during World War II)
[lyrics translated: It's all over, It's all gone, Three years in Russia, And nothing makes any sense.]
5. The Girl From Tarentum (Lyrics by Gaiuss Naeveus, translated by Jack Lindsay)
9. The Priests Of The Raven Of Dawn (William Blake's poem "London" was written in the 1790's, but there's no need to update it, or to pretend that its not about, say, New York. The refrain is taken from "The Marriage Of Heaven And Hell")

Our warmest thanks to the friends and acquaintances of
Wild Bill Hickock.

Enjoy my friend!
Happy summer good vibrations to you :)

Hello,October Country.
Thanks a lot for your kind sharing.
I will enjoy "The Open Window " very soon !!!!!

Shige said...

Hello,again,October Country.
Is your WAVE file a real one ?
My audio checker told it a fake WAVE file (all tracks,unfortunately...)

October Country said...

Hello Shige, yes the file is real and working
(just checked it myself)
Definitely give it a try regardless of what the audio checker
may say...
...cause you need this slab of goodness brother!
But let me know if there are any problems and I'll sort 'em out

Shige said...

Hello,again,October Country.
Thanks a lot for the reply.
I believe in your words.
In fact ,I was told that my lossless file was a "fake" although it was a real one some years
"The Open Window " is a real gem.
Full of interesting ideas and inspiration ...just like a toy box .
I hope to get the original vinyl someday.
Share us here when you find something interesiting ,again,please.

October Country said...

That's great Shige! Very happy to share...I really love this lp, and it continues to grow on you over time, revealing layers of richness and complexity...
like a time-traveler
...was thinking about it, and these files maybe weren't originally WAV (I had them exported from Audacity as WAV files) that's what the checker might be picking up on?...oh well, either way, it sounds great!
So glad to share the goods with everyone -
good vibrations unearth hidden treasures of the past -
