ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Between 1983 and 1990, Dennis Carleton released 9 solo cassettes and established himself as a well known home taper in the Alternative underground music scene. His music was played on over 300 College and Public Radio stations, including WFMU in New Jersey, and CKLN in Toronto, Ontario. CKLN in Toronto and WAIF in Cincinnatti, Ohio both did two hour programs on Dennis's home tapes and sixties music.This is a collection of of the experimental music that was made during that time with a couple of live Lost Souls songs from 1960's thrown in for fun.

Kevin Loy

A solid jaunt through his home recordings
Though Denny Carleton has rather deep roots in the Cleveland music scene, a large part of his notoriety seems to come from the series of home recordings that he made during the 80s and early 90s. Aside from a few titles like Color With Crayons and Between A Rock And A Hard Place, most of these recordings have never been formally issued on CD. Think Tank addresses that, to some extent, by providing listeners with a compendium of music from those tapes, along with two live Lost Souls tracks (both of which are nice additions to their meager body of work). There are several songs from acoustic-based albums like Between A Rock And A Hard Place, but the better material is from his endearingly quirky albums like Color With Crayons. The instrumental numbers merit special notice, particularly "Nations I Have Never Seen", which starts off as a composed duet between Denny on guitar and Cecil Rucker on vibraphone, before it shifts into an increasingly free exploration between the two musicians. Surprisingly, the low-fidelity of this track, with excessive tape distortion, permutates the sound of the musicians, adding different tonalities and harmonic principles that both musicians probably never realized at the time of its inception (John Cage would have been proud, Denny). Of course, there are numerous other highlights, but the best thing that I can advise for any curious listener is to check this out for themselves.
