WOW!! Thanks for the tip. I have been wondering when this was coming out. I wrote a small article on Martin Denny's "oddities". Albums that he did that swerved past the exotica realm. I also noticed a piece on Les Baxter by James Call and an article on Arthur Lyman by our very own Otto Von Stroheim. I can't wait to get this!!!

Right now, it's in select retail outlets in L.A. -- but rapidly expanding to other cities.

The buzz has started, and early interest is picking up on both coasts.

The P.O. Box went up today, for mail orders ... and the online ordering service should be up any time now.

Go to the board and contact Brian Chidester for more information.

Late to the party here, but just got mine and it's awesome. For what it's worth, if anyone's straddling the fence on this purchase as I was for a while, I'd say go ahead and take the plunge. It's great stuff.

I'd like to float a question out there (knowing it might just float indefinitely and never get answered, which would be OK too...): what's behind the title, "Dumb Angel"? I think I'm somewhat tuned into references and indirect meanings, but this just leaves me wondering. Which may be what it's supposed to do.

The title Dumb Angel comes from the original working title that was given to Brian Wilson's SMILE album.

Dumb Angel Gazette #4 is Highly Recommended for anyone into Beatnik, Surf and Exotica Music!!!!!!!!!

Cheers and Mahalo,
Jeff

The cover looks like the issue I got last year, which I loved. Is #4 a new issue?

Ahh -- thanks! I've enjoyed the recently produced and released SMiLE CD, but didn't know that bit of background info.

Now, I guess my next step is to ponder, in which sense should I understand "dumb" here -- "mentally dull" or "without speech"?

I think that's just something that'll have to be left up to interpretation. Ambiguity being an aspect of art.

Thanks again.

They are numbered right on the front of the issue. Note that I am not talking about a "new" issue here -- I resurrected this thread because I only just got this issue (#4) which has been available for a while. And besides, I figured discussion of this publication deserved a "bump" here, it's so excellent.
