Captain Beefheart & His Magic Band – It Comes To You in a Plain Brown Wrapper (soniclovenoize reconstruction)
Beatle Bones ‘n’ Smokin’ Stones! Dig some deep Captain Beefheart audio fan fiction (or something) via the great Albums That Never Were blog. 
"This is a reconstruction of the unreleased 1968 double-album It Comes to You in a Plain Brown Wrapper by Captain Beefheart & His Magic Band. Originally scrapped with half of the material re-recorded and infamously ‘psychedelicized’ for the album Strictly Personal and the other half released as 1972’s Mirror Man, this reconstruction attempts to cull all the originally intended material for the double album that was supposed to be their sophomore release, more successfully bridging the gap between 1967’s Safe As Milk and 1969’s Trout Mask Replica.”

"I wouldn’t call myself a synaesthete in the sense that Nabokov was. But I’ll talk about a sound as being cold blue or dark brown. For descriptive purposes, yes, I often see colours when I’m listening to music and think, ‘Oh, there’s not enough sort of yellowy stuff in here, or not enough white.’"

The Strangest (and Funniest) Moments From Bob Dylan and the Band’s Basement Tapes Sessions
Oh man, the Basement Tapes are one of my favorite things ever. So obviously I’m excited about the forthcoming official Basement Tapes box! In anticipation, I banged out this little thing for Pitchfork, highlighting just a few of the delightfully weird moments captured during the sessions. There may be even more of these moments to enjoy — there are a bunch of un-bootlegged tracks that the compilers have unearthed, amazingly enough.
One thing I noticed that is not included (as far as I can tell) on the official box set is a groovy little instrumental jam that appears on the Tree With Roots set. Here it is! I assume it’s not on there because Dylan himself is most likely not playing here (I think it’s Manuel on harmonica). Not earth shattering stuff by any stretch of the imagination, but I can’t get enough of that basement noise.

Alice Coltrane Turiyasangitananda - Divine Songs (1987)

A happy b-day to the dearly departed Alice Coltrane. I believe this is getting reissued sometime in the near-ish future, but if you can’t wait, here are the mp3s via the Flashstrap blog. The cassette’s title is no lie — this is truly divine stuff.
