Elsa Popping - Delirium In Hi-Fi (1957)



Elsa Popping is actually Andre Popp from France. Why he posed as "Elsa", I don´t know. It´s nearly impossible to desribe this album, you´ve got to hear it for yourself to believe it: half speed recording of trombone, vocals, vibraphone, three flutes recorded at double speed, vocals with time delay, piano and guitars recorded at half speed with tremolo effect, backwards vocals, bassoon solo with tape echo, hiccup-like sounds played backwards, and on, and on, and on. Very experimental stuff, you see. And now put yourself in a delirium and listen to Elsa...

Elsa Popping = Hell's a-Poppin' (English language saying; it means, roughly, that exciting things are happening)

Hi,
It may be related with that great and delirious movie called HELLZAPOPPIN from 1941 by H.C. Potter.
