Enjoy the Experience

Homemade Records 1958-1992

Published by Sinecure Books
Edited by Johan Kugelberg, Michael P. Daley, Paul Major. Text by Gregg Turkington, Will Louviere, Geoffrey Weiss, Evan LeVine, Rich Haupt, Douglas Mcgowan, Brandan Kearney, Mike Ascherman, Jack Streitman, Gabriel Mckee, Will Cameron, Eothen Alapatt.

Featured image, "Larry Voltz. The Last Rainbow. Houston, TX: [No label], 1981," is reproduced from <I>Enjoy the Experience.</I>Enjoy the Experience is the largest collection of American private-press vinyl ever amassed and presented, featuring more than 1,000 cover reproductions from 1958–1992. The musicians here range from awkward teen pop combos to pizza-parlor organists; religious cult leaders to Sinatra imitators. But this is not a novelty show: also profiled and discussed are some of the most highly regarded rock, soul, jazz, funk and singer/songwriter albums from the latter half of the twentieth century. Enjoy the Experience begins when the custom-pressed American record plant came into existence and ends, largely, with the birth of the CD. As such, it is a snapshot of America in the second half of the twentieth century and collates a bevy of tales and albums released by the brave souls who took the plunge and committed their musical vision to wax. Enjoy the Experience details a forceful American cultural experience that stands in juxtaposition to the mainstream even as its creators attempted to infiltrate it. With a wealth of full-color reproductions, an introduction by editor Johan Kugelberg, an overview by legendary record dealer Paul Major, along with commentaries, reviews and 50 biographies by noted enthusiasts and collectors, Enjoy the Experience also includes a download card for dozens of the greatest songs culled from the book.

Featured albums are: Norma & Dave Enman, Early In The Morning, 1970; Frank Cimmino, Dining at the Suburbian with Frank Cimmino at the Organ, 1977; Richard Kimble, Richard Kimble …In Action, no date; Marilyn Torch, Watch Me Crawl, 1986; Paul Carmello, A Toast To California, 1981; and Larry Voltz, The Last Rainbow, 1981.

Enjoy the Experience: Homemade Records 1958-1992

Enjoy the Experience: Homemade Records 1958-1992In the current issue of Rolling Stone, Sinecure's awesome new book on American homemade records gets a four-star review, while Spin writes, "People can create the most amazing things when no one else is telling them what to do. In the sumptuous new book Enjoy the Experience: American Homemade Records 1958-1992, editors Johan Kugelberg, Michael P. Daley, and Paul Major have collected more than 1,000 of the wildest, weirdest, sweetest, and coolest vanity vinyl covers, all of which were made to accompany music recorded and released by private individuals. Some of the music deserved to be heard by wide audiences; lots of it, if we're being frank, didn't. But in all cases, the unfettered personality evinced by the cover images offers a look at an alternate and previously hidden universe of American music." Featured images is the cover of Frank Vignola's Hi… I’m Frank Vignola, produced in Islip, New York by Banjazz Productions, 1979.
