If Earl Von Bye was in Star Wars he would be Obi-Wan Kenobi. Jedi Knight: a shining example. Master: to some. Hero: to others. General: the highest rank. Crazy Old Wizard: hes been called that! Old Man Preaching Hokey Religions & Ancient Weapons: hmmm yes, vinyl records and SL1200's! Damn Fool Idealistic Crusader: yes especially this! We like to poke fun at old "Obi-Von Bye", but consider: That "old man" defeated the first Sith Lord in over 1000 years, went toe to toe with a droid general, the galaxy's badest bounty hunter, not to mention 2 more Sith Lords, one of them being the most powerful that ever lived, you may have heard of him: Darth Vader! The Verdict: More powerful than you could possibly imagine!
EVB has named this set after his hero and idol. His tribute to an unsung hero. Indeed those who know EVB will attest that he lives by a code like a Jedi and even exibits similar traits to his hero: Humble confidence, quiet strength, boundless courage. He is wise, calm, calculating. A deep thinker, maybe too serious at times. Dry sense of humour? Yes that too! This set was recorded entirely with vinyl records on only a pair of Technics SL1200's...An elegant weapon for a more civilized age. Please enjoy the story and journey you are about to hear. Let the Force surround you, penetrate you and bind the Galaxy together. Oh and one last thing: You don't need to see his identification, these aren't the droids you're looking for, you can go about your business, move along...May The Force Be With You, The Drunken Monkey
