The famous vinyl album has finally been examined. So it famous was. It was the album that started it all. Actually, I'm not sure what it started. But the album is a legend in the minds of dozens of people. It was arguably the most intriguing item in the very first suitcase ever dropped by the person we lovingly call the actor in the Iamaphoney videos.
The album cover had some annotations on the back. The words "Maclen Music" and "Lilli" were underlined.
There was a doodle in the bottom right corner of the back cover too.
But what about the record itself? Ah yes, that black vinyl disc inside. The person who found the suitcase, known as 65if2007, did not have a record player. Iamaphoney said, "It's time." But time went by. Ringo said, "Time Takes Time." 65if2007 proved that it does. Angry words were exchanged. Iamaphoney's credibility went into a free fall. More time went by. An online petition was created. The participants proved that an online petition plus one dollar will get you a double cheeseburger at McDonalds. 65if2007 walked away from it all, which prompted me to say for the 33rd time, "No one has ever been harmed by walking away from a conspiracy theory."
But 65if2007 graciously returned and offered to give the album to someone who could properly investigate it. The recipient, a moderator of the "Nothing is Real" discussion group received the album this week. I knew as soon as I saw the picture of the record itself that it was probably the standard U.S. issue of the "Magic Christian Soundtrack."
The label is identical to my copy. On the picture of Side Two, you can see the factory writing on the runoff groove.
My copy has "CURLPS 10008 TMC - RE3" which I believe is partially shown in the picture above from "Nothing Is Real." It appears that if this item has any significance, it must be in the annotations found on both the cover and the record label.
I listened to the mp3 files of the album and aside from some scratches in different places, the soundtrack was identical to mine.
I'm sorry to say, no revelation here. Oh well, I guess we can always go back to this item.
