about

1981

Chemical Playschool 1 & 2 dates back to the very beginning of the Legendary Pink Dots.
When LPDs decided to make their first tentative wave from the great ocean of artists just wanting to be noticed, they produced 2 cassettes. "Only Dreaming" had the songs plus a few mangled interludes; "Chemical Playschool " was one long
disturbing trip clocking in at an hour. Parts of that trip are reproduced on CP 1 & 2
("Stars on Sunday", "Redeemed" and others).Also in the pot was a large part of the promotional cassette which EK left in record stores around Europe ("Primer"-written in cyrillic script).
In fact CP 1 & 2 is a compilation of the first year of LPDs.
Beware, much of it appears elsewhere (Legendary Pink Box, Kleine Krieg,Dots on the Eyes,Premonition). It is also not for hi-fi enthusiasts (primitive equipment, the occasional tape "drop-out").
The original run with handmade covers was just 25 copies ,all sent to Eurock in the US .The master tapes were then accidentally erased but cassette copies were found.
This remaster comes from second generation cassettes found stuffed in a box.The music has been painstakingly enhanced and clarified but sound quality is inevitably flawed.The sonic overhaul is respectful- there was no desire to turn the work into something that it isn't.
