LIE: The Love and Terror Cult

I know Will's against posting duplicates on this blog, but I figured I'd make an exception for this album. See this originally came out in 1970 in a limited run of 2,000 copies on a made up label called Awareness Records as "LIE: The Love and Terror Cult" (2144).

Producer Phil Kaufman later peddled the recordings around to other labels in hopes of getting a wider circulation, and eventually made an agreement with ESP-Disk who put out the album again in 1974 as "Charles Manson Sings" (ESP-2003).

As time went on more and more pressings of this started to appear, such as an Argentinian bootleg, a French issue with a different sleeve, and in 1987 the junk UK label stealing the label name of the original release, put out the most readily available reissue of the album on both cheap LP & CD.

And gradually as time went by and these tapes were pressed, repressed and bootlegged to high heaven, the quality started to deteriorate considerably.

That is why I'm choosing to post my rip of the original 1970 album, no mastering, no quality loss, nothing. Just as it was meant to sound when it was released. This pressings thick vinyl has kept the sound as pristine as it can, and I've ripped it first to wav, then converted it to high quality 256kbps mp3.

Cool, I posted the "White Album" way back when I started this blog so I just never got around to posting "Lie" by itself. I've got the vinyl but the only digital version I've had is the one included with the "White Album" so thanks for putting this one up and, by the way, great job so far Daniel!

That LP sounds great. Much warmer than the CD.

Here's "Charles Manson - Unplugged 9.11.67 Volume 1": http://www.mediafire.com/?wnh1mixncgw

It's compiled from the Melcher/Wilson stuff on "Psychedelic Sessions" but is much better quality.

Really good quality on the "Unplugged". Wish someone would give the entire "Psychedelic Soul" that treatment.

This has to be the BEST version of LIE I've heard (the vinyl clicks and pops notwithstanding.) Is there any way this can the original .WAV files can be uploaded to a bit torrent tracker for many more people to download and enjoy? I know a lot of people "poo-poo" on MP3 format and would prefer uncompressed rips. If not that is OK. I'm happy someone made the effort to rip LIE from the original with great quality.
