Seeing The Unseeable: The Complete Recordings Of The Flaming Lips 1986-1990
The Flaming Lips have pushed the sonic envelope for more than two decades as part of the Warner Bros. roster, but that's not the beginning of their story. Oklahoma's most famous freaks got their start on indie imprint Restless Records, and their gleefully weird output for the label has just been reissued on SEEING THE UNSEEABLE: THE COMPLETE STUDIO RECORDINGS OF THE FLAMING LIPS 1986-1990. The six-CD boxed set includes their albums 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), all remastered from the original 1/4" analog tapes. SEEING THE UNSEEABLE is also packed with rare recordings originally released as b-sides, flexi discs, and on compilations, as well as the “Mushroom Tapes” demos for the band's final Restless album.
