Remastered from the Original 1/4" Analog Tape Masters by Longtime Producer David Fridmann with the Band's Wayne Coyne and Michael Ivins
The Flaming Lips have pushed the envelope and bent boundaries for more than two decades with the band's Grammy-winning music and ground-breaking concerts. In 2018, Rhino and Warner Bros. Records will celebrate Oklahoma's most famous freaks with an ambitious reissue program, kicking off with remastered editions of the joyous weirdness the band recorded for Restless Records between 1984 and 1990 before signing with Warner Bros. in 1991 including Hear It Is (1986), Oh My Gawd!!!...The Flaming Lips (1987), Telepathic Surgery (1989) and In A Priest Driven Ambulance (With Silver Sunshine Stares) (1990).
Expanding and evolving on the mind bending mélange of their trailblazing debut, the Lips' second effort, Oh My Gawd!!! finds the fearless band mining the psychedelic aspects of their sound even further. And the group's ever ambitious nature begins to really reveal itself here as well with Ummagumma era Pink Floyd, Mountain, and even Blue Cheer becoming clear influences. It's home to such seminal showpieces as "One Million Billionth Of A Millisecond On A Sunday Morning," "Maximum Dream For Evil Knievel," and "Prescription: Love."
Remastered from the original 1/4" analog tape masters by the band's longtime musical foil and producer, David Fridmann, with help from the Flaming Lips' Wayne Coyne and Michael Ivins.
