One of my absolute favorites. This movie and soundtrack changed my life. Eddie and Flo are out of this world. They are some of the most incredible vocalists ever. The entire movie is genius. It all makes a lot more sense when you watch it on LSD. The color schemes, special effects, and overall content was made to be your personal guru that will hold your hand and take you for a wonderful trippy ride. The more abstract songs melt your brain into space pulling on tiny brain impulses. Then as a new scene unfolds you are emotionally toyed with, going from hilarious to almost insane

I currently don't own this. Do you guys think Universal will ever release this? There is a gap in the numbering. I can get a Ryko copy for $80, but hate to spend that if Universal is going to release it soon. If Ryko was able to get it released, I don't see how Universal can't?

Thank you slime! I went ahead for the $50 buy it now with free shipping. Said near mint, and seller has a great feedback rating. Didn't feel like getting in a bidding war over the other one. Thanks again!

Thanks again for taking the time to research those slime! I took the buy it now for $50 with free shipping right after you posted it. The bidding on the other one ended at $60 with $3 shipping, and it was a BMG Music Club copy. I retrieved my copy from the PO Box literally a few hours after the auction ended on the other copy . The seller even included that little insert that was under the shrink wrap in the original purchase. The book is in excellent condition, and the discs don't even have any light scratches or fingerprints at all.

Just seeing these pictures I remembered on thing I've always wanted to ask (or a request), so I took my copy and opened the booklet. The thing is that it has some printing problems, so there are 2 pages on which the final lines are missing. Can you help me ans write me down those two lines (just to know it and have it finlly complete)?

the places are:

~ page 14., bottom of the page: "Frank and Tony still did..." (the rest is missing)
~ page 15., bottom of the page: "everyone came back home in the States for sev-" (the rest is missing).

So 2 lines missing, altogether - can anyone help me? Thank you!

Here you go balint.
~ page 14., bottom of the page: "Frank and Tony still did not agree on how the film should be sequenced and it was during this"
~ page 15., bottom of the page: "everyone came back home in the States for sev-eral weeks and the 35mm film deep into post-production, attention turned"

i think it's alright, reminds me of Uncle Meat in how it mixes a little of everything. In terms of his orchestral stuff I'm all about Yellow Shark personally, it's a shame that never got a vinyl release.
