The Residents - The Warner Brothers Album

Front and back cover of "The Warner Bros. Album".

" The Warner Bros. Album" was recorded from 1970 to 1971 by The Resdents (who at the time didn't have a name). It was sent to Warner Bros. Records because they thought that if they signed Captain Beefheart to the label (One of The Residents biggest influences), they had a chance of getting a record deal. In 1971, The Residents got a rejection slip addressed to "The Residents", since they didn't have a name. Hal  Halverstadt wrote that he gave it "an A for Ariginality".
