    Excellent piece.

    "Many effects were created by "mistreating large white cabbages", as the sleeve notes explain. "The results were highly realistic and we even had some coleslaw left for dinner."

      In 1977, they released the Death & Horror sound effects record on black vinyl that turned translucent blood red when held up to strong light.

      WHAAAT?

      This was one of the first records I ever bought and I never knew that.

      "The Electronic Swamp" "Lunatics Laughing" and "The Mad Gorilla" were my favorites.

        It's not quite right, that - most BBC records turn red when held up to the light, a known quirk of records pressed by Pye. But they also did a proper blood-red vinyl pressing too as a limited edition, which I think is what the author was getting confused with.

            Interesting article. Where's the bloody music to accompany it, BBC?

              Was this not to do with the amount of black dye added to the vinyl?
              Were Pye 'skimping'?
              It's also a common feature of Transatlantic pressings, which were probably pressed by Pye now that I think about it.
              And Dawn pressings, of course, which was a Pye sublabel.
              And probably many more...
