This is the original UK release of Absolute O'Brien, on the Medical Records label. I believe that Medical Records was formed specifically for this album, probably by Richard O'Brien and Andy Leighton. A U.S. release by Oglio Records followed a few months later. Please keep in mind that the shade of magenta used on the covers and liner notes of this album is a VERY intense color, which does not reproduce well at all on computers (technically speaking, the color is well outside of the RGB gamut of computer monitors). So the actual CD will look rather different from above. For more information, refer to the overall album notes.
As of this writing in 2009, the CD has been out of print for some time though the U.S. release is still available direct from Oglio for $1.00 plus shipping (which I can only really interpret to mean that they're desperate to get it out of their warehouse). It is also available digitally in MP3 form from Amazon MP3 Downloads.

|Angel In Me - 5 minutes 19 seconds (662x360, 30 fps, 45.0 MB). Richard O'Brien appears in this 1998 music video to promote his Absolute O'Brien album. The Angel In Me song was originally performed for his Disgracefully Yours stage show, and he appears here in full costume as Mephistopheles Smith. During the sidewalk scene, keep an eye out for various U.K. Rocky fans walking through the crowd in their lingerie.|
