Helo all!

Today's mystery LP-under-the-cassettes should be relatively easy to ID -- any guesses?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 1/30/18 12:03pm JtotheK:

Is it a Lawrence Welk LP? Hi Tony. Hi everyone.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 1/30/18 12:04pm steveo:

Greetings, Tony. Coincidentally, Matt WW just played a Sandy Denny track.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 1/30/18 12:04pm Sem:

Greets from out here to you over there, Tony. Hello, JtotheK.

In for the Hiss! Release the Hinds!
Avatar Tue. 1/30/18 12:05pm Tony Coulter:

Hey, hey, hey, JtotheK, steveo, Sem, & Listener J!
Avatar Tue. 1/30/18 12:07pm Tony Coulter:

steveo has obviously recognized today's mystery LP, and has even offered up a clue. Anyone care to make a guess?

Oh, and no, it's not Lawrence Welk .. or even Lawrence Whelk.
  Tue. 1/30/18 12:10pm Dean:

Don Felder's Lawrence Welk tribute album, Heavy Metal Accordion?
Avatar Tue. 1/30/18 12:11pm Tony Coulter:

And Dean is our winner!

Er, no, he's not. (Heya, Dean!)
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 1/30/18 12:11pm steveo:

Available on Discogs starting at £1.50 (for a CD)

this tape sounds great

Greetings, Psychspaniolos!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 1/30/18 12:14pm chris:

hi, Tony and friends. thanks to steveo's hint, i was able to find the FC album on discogs: what we did on our holidays. i honestly never would have found it otherwise.

also, tape hiss! yay!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 1/30/18 12:14pm JtotheK:

@Dean - did you just come up with a premium idea? I like the idea of a tribute album done in the style of Welk!
Avatar Tue. 1/30/18 12:16pm Tony Coulter:

Hey, Chris! You are our lucky winner! You win a free trip to Flumdiddle!!
Avatar Tue. 1/30/18 12:17pm Tony Coulter:

And here's the Fairport album, for those who don't know it: www.discogs.com...
Avatar Tue. 1/30/18 12:18pm still b/p:

I took the clue and looked and found it immediately with first search for FP albums. Conveniently answered? Yes. Satisfyingly through process or personal memory straining? No. Maybe I should've gone outside and flagged down a driver or two to describe the art and ask them, so it would seem like more active and intense effort.
Avatar Tue. 1/30/18 12:19pm Tony Coulter:

Ha! Heya, still b/p!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 1/30/18 12:19pm steveo:

i should have waited on the hint but I can't resist a coincidence
  Tue. 1/30/18 12:19pm Dean:

@JtotheK: I wouldn't be surprised if there were a heavy metal accordion album out there somewhere...
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 1/30/18 12:20pm steveo:

(also I'm pretty sure the F in WFMU stands for Fairport)

Tony! Coulter!

N! i! c! k! S!
Avatar Tue. 1/30/18 12:24pm still b/p:

Sometimes internet aid questionable, sometimes internet good: found a Macbook Air computer sitting in a yard down the street recently, in the grass just a reach off the sidewalk. IT was so unusual a lfind that I doubted the property owner would've lost or left it there without fast recovery, so I took it home after my errand. Called a friend who has Mac products to get a power cord. Eventually it powered up; with the names that appeared on the screen, I Googled my way to a likely local connection and phone number, talked to Mom whose son had lost the computer and other goods to a car-break. Dad and sone came to my place to retrieve. So back in his hands same day I found it.

i would like to donate my free trip to Flumdiddle to you, still b/p. you deserve it more than i.
Avatar Tue. 1/30/18 12:28pm Yvang:

Ok it's a Faiport Convetion Sleeve, no?
Avatar Tue. 1/30/18 12:29pm still b/p:

Sweet! What currency and what shots do I need?

@ Yvang: yep! It's "What We Did On Our Holidays" ... but it's already been ID'ed ... so I'm fresh out of grand prizes.
Avatar Tue. 1/30/18 12:32pm Yvang:

Ooops! I missed the previous comments...
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 1/30/18 12:33pm steveo:

and thus the purest correctness
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 1/30/18 12:35pm steveo:

this reminds me a lot of an organ my grandmother used to have with a "glissando bar"
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 1/30/18 12:37pm steveo:

is the organ type listed, Tony?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 1/30/18 12:38pm steveo:

(for Contrasts)
Avatar Tue. 1/30/18 12:39pm Tony Coulter:

@ Steveo: nope: for keyboards, it just sez organ and synth
Avatar Tue. 1/30/18 12:45pm Tony Coulter:

Assuming it even is a keyboard synth -- which, on reflection, maybe it isn't.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 1/30/18 12:49pm steveo:

thanks for checking Tony -- true that
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 1/30/18 12:50pm steveo:

it's past my lunchtime but I can't bear to leave John Hinds
Avatar Tue. 1/30/18 12:50pm Tony Coulter:

Sadly, the cover of "Contrasts" makes me think of Kenny G (the evil one, not FMU's own)
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 1/30/18 1:05pm steveo:

I just searched and found the type of organ my grandmother had. A Thomas Californian 263. I used to think all organs had a glissando bar. Here's a PNG image. goo.gl... For Arpeggio, you would hold one or more keys on the actual keyboard and then only those tones would sound when you ran your finger across the buttons on the bar.
Avatar Tue. 1/30/18 1:11pm Tony Coulter:

I think I've diddled on organs that give you automatic arpeggios. And *maybe* ones with a glissando bar -- that sounds like fun, actually, so you'd think I'd remember.
  Tue. 1/30/18 1:11pm Dean:

David Schafer did a Kenny G-ish (FMU's own) take on Kenny G (the evil one) with "Forever in Love Forever."
Avatar Tue. 1/30/18 1:12pm Tony Coulter:

The cassette on now is the red one on the left -- that's Kalle Laar on the cover.
Avatar Tue. 1/30/18 1:21pm Tony Coulter:

Of course, it says "Kalle Laar" right on the cover -- but well, you know, just in case you forgot your spectacles....
Avatar Tue. 1/30/18 1:35pm Tony Coulter:

Note the Zorn-esque duck call action here.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 1/30/18 1:40pm Sem:

Head down in work, but listening along w/ enthusiasm and gratitude.
  Tue. 1/30/18 1:41pm Electric Chair:

Is A Music Machine/Homemade Instrument theme
happening?
Avatar Tue. 1/30/18 1:41pm Tony Coulter:

@ Sem: Glad to hear it, Sem! Was wondering if the tape on now had cleared the room.
Avatar Tue. 1/30/18 1:43pm Tony Coulter:

Heya, Electric Chair!

This is live improv, mostly featuring guitar and percussion.
Avatar Tue. 1/30/18 1:52pm Tony Coulter:

By the by, percussionist Takashi Kazamaki has recorded with Takehisa Kosugi, of Taj-Mahal Travellers should-be-fame ... and also Danny Davis of the Sun Ra Arkestra.
Avatar Tue. 1/30/18 1:54pm Tony Coulter:

That's Kazutoki Umezu (Dr. Umezu) on sax
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 1/30/18 1:59pm Ike:

Been listening!
Avatar Tue. 1/30/18 2:00pm Tony Coulter:

Heya, Ike! Glad your ears are here (and still on your head too, hopefully).
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 1/30/18 2:05pm steveo:

Had to go out, but I'm back now. Sorry I missed the room-clearing tape.
Avatar Tue. 1/30/18 2:05pm Tony Coulter:

Apologies to the inhabitants of Yokohama -- just corrected the spelling of your fair city.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 1/30/18 2:06pm Ike:

Why, I never heard of such a crazy thing. Of course my ears are still on my head. I may need to FedEx out my nostrils and septum out for some work, though.
Avatar Tue. 1/30/18 2:16pm Tony Coulter:

Another mistake on my part: NMA (the label that released this Ernie Althoff tape) stands for New Music Articles, not New Music Australia. That'll teach me. www.rainerlinz.net...
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 1/30/18 2:18pm chris:

whatever the label, this stuff is excellent!

I'm really enjoying the Ernie Althoff piece. Thanks for introducing me to him!

Hola, Listener Bob! Glad you're enjoying the Althoff...

Re Hapunkt Fix: More like, tape collage and electronics using records and radio....
Avatar Tue. 1/30/18 2:48pm Tony Coulter:

By the way, the cover of this Hapunkt Fix cassette is an actual East German visa.

Two of Passport's albums--their first two--feature West German passports. Whether actual or not I'm not so sure.
