Where are the likely retail outlets for this disc? Do they have neon signs that contain "25¢"? Perhaps -- the music on the disc is coupled with (so to speak) sounds of a man and woman gradually reaching a sexual climax. At least most of them do -- the third track, set to the "Danse bohème" from Carmen, sounds a bit more like a plumbing repair demonstration CD at the beginning (the couples recorded on the five tracks are apparently different in each case). On the plus side, some of the music is a bit unusual in the role it plays here, and you may find it useful in setting an unusual mood. The ice-skating ambience of the third movement of the Tchaikovsky Symphony No. 6 (track 2) might turn the trick when combined with certain vodka brands. On the minus side, the album as a whole clocks in at just over 50 minutes. With the entire Ravel Boléro of course included (supposedly he was really depicting a sawmill), that leaves just about nine minutes each for the other four tracks -- good enough if, like George Clinton's paramour, all she wanted was a quickie, but not a full exploitation of the CD medium. And since exploitation is what this is all about, despite the rather creative half-human, half-violin creature on the cover, that's a shame.
