The White Room of Confusion

I've just searched and re-searched the blog archives and apparently I have never featured anything by The KLF let alone their 1991 seminal album The White Room. I'm not having that.

The only explanation I can offer is that I've tried before but gave up as the track list on the CD seems to different to what is coming out the speakers. It is the KLF after all. I remember being somewhat confused at the time of purchase.
The internet was not around then to offer an explanation which is namely The UK CD release (JAMS CD006)'s sleeve lists it as a 9-track CD, however the disc only has 8 tracks. Track 4 "Church of the KLF" is on the end of the track 3, moving all other tracks up a number. The sleeve also states the album is 45:05 long but in fact it is only 43:43 long. Wish I'd known that back then.

I think I've got it sorted but if not please bear with me.
Mad as a box of frogs - but in a good way

The KLF - Last Train to Transcentral

The KLF - Justified and Ancient


  1. I was working in our Price when this cam eout. It was one of those records that some people bought on the strength of the Justified and Ancient single with Tammy Wynette, but then returned it after hearing the album version! One of my colleagues was a KLF anorak and was horrified that anyone would do such a thing!

  2. I've always wondered if KLF got their idea for The White Room album from the song "White Room" by Cream on their album "Disraeli Gears".

    1. Wheels Of Fire not Disraeli Gears. A pedant writes.

    2. I stand corrected. Wheels of Fire it is.
