    Black people in the South are not monolithic in their attitudes - we're talking about a ton of people in many different communities. Some are offended by it, I've seen some black folks fly it, wear it, etc.

    This fascinates me. So it's a beach party, right? Russ is there with some of his creations, along with George Michael, one of ZZ Top, Strawberry Switchblade, Elton John and Mike Read? Is everyone else seeing this? Who's the woman behind Russ, is that Madonna to the left and who's is the severed head in the sand?

    Strawberry Switchblade only really had a profile in Nov/Dec 1985 and early 1986, so I wonder when the decision to include them was made, as they would have been long gone by the time the album came out?

    It represents a lot of things to a lot of people. As a southerner I wouldn't fly one personally, but I wouldn't be so simple-minded as to assume it's only a racist symbol - there was much more at stake in the civil war than just the issue of slavery.

    soft machine might be my favorite band ever, so i'm very intrigued

    There is not much info on this. Asked a few friends. The three who are playing on the record worked at Paard. It's also recorded there.

    [QUOTE=AlanP;463898]at risk of sounding like a Philistine and with all due respect to those involved...is that Ptolomy Psycon sort after simply because it's rare?

    of course there's nothing that says you have to like something because someone else is willing to pay huge amounts for it, but aren't there some basic flaws riddled throughout that Azreal track? Three minutes of headscratching was enough for me.

    Probably mainly collectible due to its rarity, but I thought it was pretty spectacular when I first put it on, maybe because I found it tho>?

    Why do you have the confederate flag as your picture?

    So I assume there's some historical context or summat at play here as well?

    Also a member of the band did sell one on popsike, I think it is mentioned in a previous thread somewhere on here.
