5.0 out of 5 stars The Crayola/Krayola Lose a "C", Gain A "K", And Make A 360...... July 2 2011
By John H. McCarthy - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
For better or for worse, there have been many artists and bands over the years that will defy expectations when releasing their next musical project, Prince and Neil Young come to mind, creating confusion within their fan base. The Red Krayola were one of the first, starting with having to change the spelling of their name due to legal threats from Binney-Smith, the manufacturer of Crayola crayons. The artwork on their new album was minimalist compared to the psychedelic collage that graced their first, Parable of Arable Land, in fact the music within was also minimalist. Consisting of twenty songs, with little more instrumentation than guitar, percussion, bass, occasional piano and female vocals/chorus, jettisoning The Familiar Ugly and the Free Form Freak-Outs (although Track 9, "Free Piece" comes close), Mayo Thompson, Steve Cunningham and new drummer Tommy Smith offer a deceptively simple but quite arresting musical experience. Inventive song structures bring to mind many future innovators, like WIRE ("Say Hello To Janie Jones"), The ROACHES ("Music"), TALKING HEADS ("Save The House"), MEAT PUPPETS ("Sheriff Jack"), PAVEMENT ("Tina's Gone To Have A Baby", "Jewels Of The Madonna"), The FEELIES ("Green Of My Pants") and so on. The Digi-Book packaging, the informative booklet and the first time Remastering from the original tapes are all first rate. Still making vital music today, check out and enjoy the roots of a true original, Mayo Thompson......

Other fine RED KRAYOLA releases: Coconut Hotel, Live 1967, Corrected Slogans, Kangaroo, Soldier Talk, Black Snakes, Three Songs on a Trip to the United States, Singles. MAYO THOMPSON: Corky's Debt To His Father.

3.0 out of 5 stars are they serious? Sept. 14 2011
By Larry Gill - Published on Amazon.com
I was first introduced to the RK in the late 60s when a school friend lent me this lp. How bands like this get recording contracts is a mystery. Not only does it not make sense, they seem very inexperienced. I am all for free expression, but this seems to be the ultimate in free-form music, in other words, using creative freedom as an excuse for no talent. I applaud the efforts of Mayo and the boys to do an lp, but encourage and expect real music in the years to come.
