Conceptionland and Other States of Mind - 1972


These tracks were on the playlists of hip radio stations back when. I remember hearing one track that went like this; "When the tie is tightly tied we dip the tie in the tie-dye dye!" By the way, one radio station DJ dropped the needle on the wrong track and so got busted by the FCC! Link in comments.

Conception Corporation - Complete Conception


The Conception Corporation was an American comedy ensemble consisting of Murphy Dunne, Howard R. Cohen, Ira Miller, and Jeff Begun. They recorded three albums (one of them unreleased) between 1970 and 1973, and made the "underground television show" Void Where Prohibited by Law (similar in concept to Ken Shapiro's Groove Tube productions), which was shown in Chicago and Los Angeles in 1971. Carol Androsky and Lynne Lipton were part of the recording ensemble and members. I was too young to appreciate these guys and their publisher Rhino Records. Link in comments.

Supertramp - Take The Long Way Home - 1979


This tune was the hit on the BREAKFAST IN AMERICA album. It was played all summer long - in my college town, anyway, and ran a little long at 5:08 just the way DJ's like it. Discuss...
