Over the next eight weeks, I'll be featuring selections from the box set Cerebral Sounds of Brain Records 1972-1979, which came out in Spring 2017 but only landed with me this week. Aligned with the format of the collection, I'll play tracks randomly throughout the show, chronologically, from each of the eight discs, corresponding to the year of release, citing the album they originally appeared on. Tonight, from the first disc, recordings released in 1972.

Hey Professor Yaffle has been getting some great recognition in the UK right now & it's a very relaxing album. Thanks for the Skytone spin - that's their song inspired by a trip to Thailand
