Is this really a 1977 issue ? I am asking because my copy does include poster which is quite rare.

Hi there,

I'm wondering if there are experts in this release to answer a little question. I have to records of this release (?). One is exactly hitting the indications for this release: It's the one with a non-glossy gatefold with exactly the printings, etchings etc. that are mentioned here.
The other release differs in the following points:
A) Labels: 1. Matrix: Only machine stamped BLPS 19019 A (/B), not crossed out.
2. "Bellaphon" is not framed, but "GEMA" is framed and printed in thinner letters.
3. "Seite 1 (/2) is printed in slightly thicker letters.
B) Glossy laminated gatefold sleeve with the first sleeve is just a thin single layer cardboard (so it's flexibel; other sleeve is a glued jacket).
C) Some differences in printings on sleeve:
1. Inner of gatefold right side: No "Hallelujah takes no responsibility." and no "Stereo x 606" (at the bottom 90° turned).
2. Back of sleeve: No "Bellaphon, BLPS 19019, Stereo" printing.

I hope my explainations are understandable and sufficient for you to contribute some hints or at least speculations to that case. Thanks a lot in advance, I would be glad to give more information to get clear about that release.
Best regards,
Pornowirt

The B-side was and still is pure magic.
In the 70's they were blamed to be "commercial"
because we had CAN and NEU and other great
bands, too. Hard to understand, but in these days
there was so much wonderful music around that
a masterpiece like this record could be neglected.
Almost like in the late70's/early 80's, when a lot of records
drowned in the sea of good music.
A sea of good music, when will we ever find it again?

I sure have my share of albums certain to drive your neighbors crazy, and this is one of them. OK, the first two cuts, "Black Sand" and "Places of Light" won't drive people crazy. They're nice, early '70s organ-driven numbers, with the latter featuring Dawn Muir speaking poetry, with Joel Vandroogenbroeck giving great organ work. Then the rest of the album. I'm not kidding when this piece ("Brainticket", divided into two parts, actually one part split in two because of the LP) is basically one fuzzed organ riff, disturbing sound effects and Dawn Muir under one bad LSD trip. 1960s flower power albums always emphasized pleasant acid trips. The Doors, I am certain, recorded many a song under a bad acid trip, but nothing as extreme as what Brainticket has done here. Little wonder two warnings are included on the album: "After listening to this record, your friends won't know you anymore" and "Listen only once a day to this record, your brain might be destroyed". They aren't kidding either. I understand this album was banned in several countries. You'll either like it or it will drive you nuts. I like it, but I'm afraid of cranking it too loud in fear of neighbors or passers by hearing this.
