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.

Beware -- this is actually a very low quality CDR. The packaging, however, is very nice, with a printed gatefold and wraparound sticker cover, resembling the original LP issue. When you hold the printed CDR up to the light, you can see right through it, as though it were invisible. Disappointing. The sounds seem fine, yet somehow thin. Let's hope a future vinyl reissue occurs.
