SAM BAKERS “At Home” (Albert’s Basement)

Is there anything musically redeeming, or even entertaining, about a sound collage splicing audio samples for the duration of a whole tape? After listening to Sam Bakers debut release “At Home”, I’m of the opinion there is not. Side B starts with studio laughter. Maybe Sam Bakers is convinced we are in on his joke. Or maybe he’s laughing at those of us who don’t ‘get’ him. Well keep laughing, Sam. If he’s lucky in 200 years someone might find this piece of 2deep4u b.s. and mistake it for genius.
