From WFMU's Beware of the Blog:
Quote:
composed by L. Ron Hubbard himself, with help from Scientology session men Chick Corea, Stanley Clarke and Nicky Hopkins.

Somewhere in my stack of vinyl LP's, I have a "soundtrack" for Battlefield Earth (the book, not the movie!!) I bought it before knowing the background behind his whole deal.

The music sounds like it was created on one of those little 20-key Casio keyboards, and written by a fourth-grader.

That's some deranged stuff there. You could scare Xenu away with that music, or at least irritate your base Thetans.

I think it's fascinating that you can read all manner of Scientology literature and never get any indication that 'ol El-Ron has been dead for 30 years.

Wait... what!? No no, he's just moved on to another earthly vessle.

Oh, and I'm going to declare that music dreadful without bothering to listen to it. I might be missing out, but based on his other *cough* works, I'm just going to chalk it up to statistical probability.

El Ron is never dead if we keep him in our hearts.

Aw, just like my grandpa.

Only replace "heart" with "locked kitchen cabinet."

The cover is different but some of the tracks sound familiar. I'm afraid to listen to it again.

Now I understand why Scientologists are always complaining they're posessed by anguished spirits.

God Damn, Chick Corea and Stanley Clarke. I love RTF, especially Hymn to the Seventh Galaxy. That LP is fll of the most amazing, intense music. Why did they have to let LRH steal their souls.

Well well well, it looks like the blog post and the associated MP3 files have been "disappeared"...

Who could've seen that one coming?

I emailed Station Manager Ken about this and he said that particular blog entry was never intended to be permanent, to pre-emptively avoid any trouble from Scientology.

I'm just sorry that many of you will never get to hear its multifaceted, synth-heavy delights.
