This will be part one of my FMU record convention scores.
This was on my want list for pretty much EVER. When I
found it for $5 buried between crappy freestyle records I
almost shat myself. For real, those who know this record
and how awesomely rare it is can understand why i freaked
out. Just look at Ebay and it's $200+ pricetag...
First of all, Little Scotty is a blues legend. Somehow Peter
Brown squeezed a 4-song disco 12" out of him. Of all the P&P
related records, this has to be the most fucked up, and
thats saying a lot. (anyone remember Sweet Naomi's
drugged-out off-time rap 12"?) The track everyone will
know is "Shout at the Disco", mainly because it has a
famous breakbeat that all the djs want... But let's
talk about the track "Acid Freak". The title says it all.
Its a total Love-inspired super psyched-out and just insane
song. Pretty heavy acid rock- but the song falls apart at
the end. The drummer suddenly starts to play off-time
right before the song ends. The guitarist tries to catch up
but it doesnt work. Its the most insane thing I have ever
heard. It just makes no sense! Why would Peter Brown
keep the take??? Any sane man would scrap the song
and try again. A total trainwreck, and a total AWESOME

damn, thought i could've had this one here.
not quite $200+, but still too expensive for my budget. also, i noticed the labels are different colors. is one more rare than the other? and i'm dying for some sound clips as well...

yeah the yellow label and maroon labels are different pressings. Patrick Adams is a maniac, as we all know. he pressed up records whenever he felt like it. i am sure the yellow and maroon press both came out around the same time. i asked the famous dealer Ray at the FMU convention. (hes the big guy with all the records and 45s behind the table). he told me it was an original. plus it has a Masterdisk stamp on the matrix, which is a giveaway. i have over 40 Patrick Adams/Peter Brown/-related records, and i always come across different color schemes. its a mystery!

ps: i checked the ebay auction. it probably only went for $89 because the record had a warp. I wouldnt pay $90 for a warped record, would you???!?!?!
