Radio Discordia 028: Charles Manson - Live At San Quentin

An hour of songs and improvisation recorded at the California Medical Facility (CMF) at Vacaville in Manson's jail cell, 1983. Cover art apes the Beach Boys' "Pet Sounds"

Inside cover sleevenotes: "Mr and Mrs America - You are wrong. I am not the king of the Jews nor am I a hippie cult leader. I am what you have made me and the mad dog devil killer fiend leper is a reflection of your society...Whatever the outcome of this madness that you call a fair trial or Christian justice, you can know this: In my mind's eye my thoughts light fires in your cities."

From the sleevenotes: "Due to the unconventional nature of this recording a conventional tracklisting is unsuitable. Track separation is provided at regular intervals to enable the listener to locate a particular segment."

01 Boxcar Willie And Big Bad Joe
02 Television Mind
03 Marylin Monroe Was My Childhood Shame
04 Instrumental
05 And As I Told You On This Chord Once Before
06 So As The Hour Goes On That I Will Spend With You
07 I Got A Tough Bastard Child Want To Become Into A Samurai
08 So Today Has Been A Good Day
09 My Name Is Sam McGee
10 Take Me To The Summer Road
11 My Feelings Begin To Grow
12 And I'd Like To Say Hello To Some Of My Friends
13 So The Mood Was Broken
14 [Bonus Song] Look at Your Game Girl

[The last track is a professional recording made before Charles was incarcerated for the 'Manson Family Murders' it is included here in juxtaposition to his prison tapes. This is done to display the stark contrast between different periods of his life. Upon hearing the last track on cant help but wonder what kind of contributions to the music world Charles could have made had his life continued on the path that didnt lead to life in prison.-ED]
