Sounds of the Junk Yard

Loud whooshing noises open the album giving the impression of perhaps waves crashing. The noise is in fact that of a blow torch! This interesting collection recorded by Michael Siegel enlightens the listener on the sounds of a 1964 Junkyard in Warren, Pennsylvania. Liner notes include information on what each sounds is.
