Long-awaited US reissue from Caciocavallo contains full lyrics and two fold-out posters of artwork reproduced from the original vinyl box set. A must have for true fans of the Dots.

It's really sickening when people are selling theirs for an outrageous price. The Dot's cd's are not rare nor are they out of print. The reissues sound so much better than the old copies, why the hell would you pay over $40.00 for an old used copy or $45 new? Go to Soleilmoon records website or Strange Fortune's website, they carry all of the Dot's cd's, brand new and they're much cheaper too.

When it comes to stinging social satire and "bite," gloved in synthesized psychedelica with a crooning three octave voice, only Pink Floyd could hope to hold a candle to "The Prophet"- Edward KasSpell and his Legendary Pink Dots.

The Legendary Pink Box, as is the band, are imports from Amsterdam. When it comes to music, you will never hear any Dots selections in the piped Muzak of the local Lenscrafters or Wal-Mart. European bands are superior in sonics and social sting to American Casey Kasum drivel. (Of course, I exclude Negativland's lawyerfests from the above comment:)

From simple bouncy melodies to churchy hymnal music, to grandiose Owsley Acid freakout music...The Prophet's lyrics and singing come out slugging with gloves off, right from the first song. Join him as he explores and reveals the soft and maggoty underbellies of life. He looks into the lives and thoughts of "window whores" in Amsterdam, a street tramp in a German rail station, a young girl committing suicide by drowning. Peer into the life of a hopeless junkie as his dealer girlfriend drives him to suicide. Dare to consider the autistic child hidden away by others until he masturbates, to the amusement of all.

Hardly Muzak fare! There are topics that we like to pretend do not exist in our plastic culture. "Make it flush the mess away. Tell it God is dead...then make it pray!"

"The Blessing" attacks Catholic sexual mores. Whereas something considered sinful and debased before marriage becomes a "clean thing" after marriage. The happy mother tells the bride that she must now "Take it willing, take it proud!"

"Haubtbanhof" chronicles the life and death of a street alcoholic. As his "Inebriated evening spits a path to nausea night," his only joy is menthol cigarettes.
