"There must be a story to this one, but I can't figure out what it is. Released as a CD on Flexidisc ( not the format, but a label run by Jack Dangers of Meat Beat Manifesto), this album claims to contain electronic music recorded by high school kids in 1968, 1972 and 1973 with one track at the end from 1984. It seems to be a reissue of an LP released by Recorded Publications Company from Camden, New Jersey, which was, in fact, an imprint that would manufacture vinyl records for school bands. My husband assures me that this was a real thing, and that his high school band recorded such an LP (he played the trumpet, of course. I was more of a French horn girl) in the late 1980s. It's possible that Dangers made all of this music himself and grafted a believable concept onto it. It's also possible that a high school had an electronic music lab, made an LP for the kids and parents to keep as a souvenir, and this was a Creel Pone style small-run reissue for fans of outsider electronic music." - Bleak Bliss
