Salvador Dali RETURNS to Innerspace!

I’ve wonderful news, dear friends! Some of my long-time readers may recall that in August of 2012, due to financial struggles I had to part with a magnificent piece of music history – a rare copy of Salvador Dalí’s opéra-poème, Être Dieu. After discussing the piece with a fellow music lover, I revisited the market and as luck would have it, found what is likely the very copy I sold in 2012 available for purchase and at a very reasonable price. I wasted not a moment and placed my order, and today it arrived home safely!

For those not familiar with this ill-fated opera, the title translates to “Being God.” The six-part work features Dalí as God, Brigitte Bardot as an artichoke and Catherine the Great and Marilyn Monroe doing a striptease. (Because dadaism.)

Être Dieu suffered an astonishingly tragic history. It was originally published in an extremely rare 3LP box set by DCD, a small Spanish label with only 28 other releases to its name. It was re-released in a 3CD box published by German label Eurostar who subsequently went out of business, and there are few-to-no known performances of the work. Worse still, Dalí painted “Self-Portrait” (1972) to mark the composition of the opera, but the painting was auctioned by the United States Customs Service after being seized after Colombian drug lords tried to use the painting to launder money. (Salvador seriously couldn’t get a break!)

But a few copies of Eurostar’s deluxe edition survived. This edition is packaged in a blue velvet box set with a metallic gold engraving of Dalí’s signature, as well as a 326-page book containing scans of the original handwritten script, notes, and libretto in English, French, German & Spanish.

While Dalí, himself experienced great misfortune with this work, I am happy to report that good luck has come at last with its return to the Innerspace library.

Special thanks to the fellow listener out there who planted the seed of desire for me to reclaim this lost objet d’art!

The Ultimate Avant Garde Collectible from Salvador Dali

I have wonderful news!  After bringing my broken Denon DP-60L to a hi-fi guru I learned that the tonearm is NOT broken – all I need is a new cartridge!  I need to raise the funds for it, so I am offering for sale an incredible collectible for fans of the weird.

This jawdropping collectible is a brand new copy of Salvador Dali’s lost opera, Etre Dieu – a rare velvet bound 3 disc set with a 326 page book. The opera is a six-part work and features Dali as God, Brigitte Bardot as an artichoke and Catherine the Great and Marilyn Monroe doing a striptease.  The book contains notes and libretto in English, French, German & Spanish.

It doesn’t get much more avant garde than this!

I have just opened the shrinkwrap on this treasure which was released on a German label 20 years ago just before they disappeared.  It is long out of print.  The last two copies that sold on the internet went for over $100 each. The discs have never been played. I’m only asking $60 for this mint copy.

These photos are the actual copy you will receive.

Message me to make it yours and to help make my turntable work again!  Thank you.

UPDATE!  The item has been sold and a cartridge is on its way!  Stay tuned, I’ll report in 2 weeks when the turntable is back in action!
