The Residents - The W B Album mp3 album
Commercial Album is an album released by the Residents in 1980. It is commonly considered a follow-up of Duck Stab/Buster & Glen. The album pares down the concept and structure of the average commercial pop song and reduces it to a one-minute redux. It contains a compilation of 40 such sixty-second vignettes.

Previously unreleased, legendary pre-Residents album, an accompaniment to RSD 2018's successful W B Album. A must for REsidents fans and collectors, who have long called for its official release. Recorded in 1971 in the hope of securing the group a recording contract, and sent to Warner Bros Records in early 1972, BS has become a cornerstone of The Residents' mythology.
The Residents singles chronology. String Module Error: Match not found" (String Module Error: Match not found). The Beatles play The Residents and The Residents play The Beatles" (1977). The Beatles play The Residents and The Residents play The Beatles (1977). Santa Dog '78 (1978). The Beatles Play the Residents and the Residents Play the Beatles" is a 1977 single by the Residents. The single, particularly the B-side, reflects the Residents' boredom with pop music and their tendency to perform deconstructionist covers, perhaps shown most notably on their album The Third Reich 'n Roll
The Commercial Album is another manifestation of The Residents' whimsical relationship with pop music and their interest in music about music. The album is a collection of forty one-minute commercial songs - their very own personal Top 40, or perhaps a collection of one-minute jingles: the music of commercials. The Residents teamed up with several artists, including their old friend Snakefinger, who not only provided guitar, but sings on Ups & Downs. The band also recruited Chris Cutler, who had worked with them on Eskimo, Fred Frith, Lene Lovich, Andy Partridge and others
Cut out the repetition and you can, therefore, fit 40 pop songs onto a 40-minute record. And that's exactly what the Residents have done on The Commercial Album, the title of which comes from the band's deduction that since pop songs only consist of one minute of music and most advertisements are about a minute long also, ad jingles are "therefore the music of America. Got it? Whatever the concept behind it, this album is not only weird in that special way that only Residents albums are, but it's also surprisingly musically satisfying.
