becoming totally obsessed with these records. to summarize the website below, this person has been releasing anonymous records under a plethora of different names since the 90s. They are not put into conventional distribution channels, instead they are mailed randomly with no return address, dropped into thrift stores, left in dumpsters, etc.
this could be read as a gimmick if the tunes weren't so good, but they are.

anyone else into this stuff?

Oh hi... didn't see this thread! The Terry record is probably my favorite (what a vibe!), Jim Collins a close second. Love the box set (CC/Boots/Snake)... admittedly kind of lost track after that (the Arian Sample and Roundtree records were impossible to find and tbh the mp3s didn't inspire me to want to spend a lot of time or money on them). Had no idea he was churning out lathe cuts at such a pace, for instance. Any advice for post-box listening?

yay thanks for posting!
the two "cosmic jazz" records (Life Lives, Zelda Rising) are v. different but worth a listen
the 10-single box is probably the most impressive post-3LP-box thing, so check that too
I really REALLY like the first track of the Wallace Drury record and some of the (newish) TSA one. Deep Thoughts and Fusetron have copies. but in general the newer stuff is a bit more downer/lonesome, not quite the ecstatic trance vibe of the 1st two like you mention.
I chopped the Snake & Remus album into separate tracks after I ripped it and it is really damn good, I keep coming back to that one as well

oh and apparently all those lathe cuts were found by one person in a Chicago thrift store, one copy each...

Wwwwwoowww. This dude's devotion to obscurity is impressive.
