THE RESIDENTS AND RENALDO & THE LOAF Title In Limbo

CD album | gg200
The fourth step in our Renaldo re-issue programme and this time we have a very special item for you: Title In Limbo is an album that was recorded with The Residents in San Francisco in 1981.The bands played a very experimental jam session together and went back to these recordings 2 years later, in 1983. Title In Limbo finally came out in November of that year on vinyl. 1998 saw the first complete CD release as a numbered limited edition on Ralph America, copies of which are scarce and now collectors’ items. But that CD differed from the vinyl in that some tracks had short fade ups applied to them which did not truly reflect the original release. So we are excited for the first time on CD to now offer this album re-mastered with all tracks fully restored to their originally recorded states. Also included is a booklet with rare photographs and of course the lyrics for all the songs. In this case, all Klanggalerie can say to you is: Buy or die. Tracklist: 1. Intro: Version 2. The Shoe Salesman 3. Crashing 4. Monkey & Bunny 5. Mahogany Wood 6. Sitting On The Sand 7. Africa Tree 8. Woman's Weapon 9. Horizontal Logic 10. The Sailor Song 11. Extra: Version. Price: € 16,-/copy incl worldwide shipping.

“Title In Limbo” is a highly creative, varied, & wonderfully twisted collaboration between San Francisco based avant pop/ art project The Residents, and British avant-pop meets wonky (off) world music two piece Renaldo And The Loaf. (...) As collaborations go this is one of the more effectively quirky & odd I can think of, and as an release it has a very special place in my heart as I first heard when I was getting into the Residents back in the mid 1990’s. Also due to it’s sound use & time period it’s very much up their with great Residents albums from the 80’s like The Commercial Album, and the two Mole albums- but as I said early-on it does have it own distinctive sound with-in the bands discography.
