Turns out the project, which, at its core, is just a duo featuring Burnett and Hubertus Winnubst, had plenty more on the way--about 93 more minutes to be exact. Earlier this week, Burnett dropped off Rachel Bazooka's debut release, Colorbl nd. It's a mommoth of a debut if ever there was one, clocking in at 97 minutes over the span of two discs.
Far as Burnett knows--and he'd know plenty, given his long history an area musician, producer, record store owner and, most recently, eight-track museum proprietor--it's the first ever double-disc debut from a Dallas band. Hell, by his recollection (and who are we to argue otherwise), it's only the fourth double-disc debut in history, behind debuts from Frank Zappa, Chicago and George Harrison--or so Bucks explains in an essay over on Unfair Park, where Robert's also posted a stream of the first disc's closing number "Carry Me Down." There, he goes on to say more about the disc, and it makes for a good read, actually. But Bucks doesn't offer up this pretty pertinent info about the other artists who say in and joined Rachel Bazooka in the studio, recording this monumental release, among them Young, Salim Nourallah and Paul Averitt.
After the jump, a stream and a free download of another of the Disc One's tracks, this one called "My Mirror."
