During a house renovation in Mill Valley a couple of years ago, a stash of reel-to-reel tapes and 45s was discovered beneath the floorboards. Caked in grime, the collection found its way to nearby resident Jack Dangers of Meat Beat Manifesto, whose own large sound archive included several records released by the owner of the collection: Henry Jacobs. "The Weird Wide World..." is a deluxe DVD / CD set featuring recently discovered lost recordings of Henry Jacobs, a 12 page full color book full of photos and essays on the recordings and a DVD containing an hour and a half of experimental animation originally broadcast on San Francisco public television in 1970. Humor, audio collage and animation mixed into one historic package. For more info, see Important Records.
