  • Klaatu - 3:47 EST

    First album from Canadian progressive rock band Klaatu, which was released as a self-titled debut in the U.S. (not 3:47 EST) as Capitol felt the title was too obscure. Rumours abounded that Klaatu were secretly "The Beatles" performing under a pseudonym.

      Not unusual to feel that way. Sometimes a long rest and then a revisit works wonders.

    I have it on LP, but it damn sure isn't mint. That's what happens when you buy abused, er, I mean used.

    I have a copy but haven't listened to it in a decade or more. Might be a chore finding it. I know Larry/Astrotoy doesn't remember this story but I bought my copy from him probably 20+ years when he was selling records years ago on Audiomart IIRC.

      I remember when that came out back in the '70's. After finding out it wasn't really the Beatles, I wrote it off as a scam. Never heard it to this day.

        Myles, don't remember that. Thanks for the memory jog. HP had the EMI pressing on his list, maybe the Capitol pressing on an early version. I just played my rip of the EMI pressing a few days ago. I had forgotten it begins with "Calling Occupants of Interplanetary Craft", which the Carpenters covered - some 40 years ago.
