Pinhas, Richard - The Single Collection 1972-1980
15-CAPTAIN TRIP 535
The good news: this collects all the material that was released by Richard Pinhas either under his own name or his various guises: Schizo (his pre-Heldon band), Heldon, THX. Some of this material is unbelievably rare and some of it is quite fantastic. The bad news: Some of this is simply 'single edits' of tracks off of things that are on lp and CD and a fair amount of this was made using vinyl sources, as the tapes could not be located. For my money, the Schizo tracks are pretty great and very interesting, hearing Richard play Telstar is kinda fun, and there is one 7 minute, otherwise unavailable Heldon track (circa Agneta Nilsson) that is fantastic, but I can't say that this is 'essential'; if I thought it was, *we* would have released it! Limited edition of 1,000.
