BARKING PUMPKIN is proud to announce that ALL FUTURE PRODUCTS WILL BE DIGITAL, with special releases on CD FORMAT as that
technology becomes more available at the consumer level. This special disc will serve as an introduction to the quality
improvements made possible by the new digital equipment recently installed at the UTILITY MUFFIN RESEARCH KITCHEN (U.M.R.K.).

Side One includes two selections from “THE MAN FROM UTOPIA” LP (recently serviced to you in the analog format). These two
songs have been re-tweezed with the digital machinery.

Side Two gives a preview of the “LONDON SYMPHONY ORCHESTRA” LP which ships June 9th. We think you’ll agree that the change to digital at BARKING PUMPKIN marks the beginning of an exciting new era in experimental audio entertainment.

This three-track sampler is vital to completists:
The Man From Utopia Meets Mary Lou [Alternate digital remix with added reverb and a unique cold ending]
Cocaine Decisions [Alternate digital remix of the original LP edit with added reverb]
Mo ‘N Herb’s Vacation (Third Movement) Original LP mix with lots of digital reverb
The low number of grooves on this 45rpm 12″ record present this familiar LSO Vol. 1 LP track in best-ever sound quality.

Side 1:
The Man From Utopia Meets Mary Lou (medley) [Digital mix from The Man From Utopia album]
Cocaine Decision [Digital mix from The Man From Utopia album]

Side 2:
Mo ‘N Herb’s Vacation (Third Movement) [taken from London Symphony Orchestra - Vol.1]
