Summary

A strange velvet overstuffed chair is delivered to Jack's apartment. When he sits in the chair, sinking down through the soft cushions, he finds himself in a realm of pirates, sorcerers and three masted ships that fly the skies.

incredible rediscovery

When I first listened to this as a junior high kid, I didn't really understand or appreciate it. But I just listened to it again and I really, really understand it now. It's a wonderful story about the need to escape from a drab adult world. Author Meatball Fulton (Thomas Lopez) gave himself a challenge, I imagine, tones down his references to mysticism and instead relies mostly on images from popular fantasy (winged ships, floating islands) and surrealism (the black Mona Lisa with her mustache, glowing mushrooms that tell the future, a grand piano pulled by horses.) It's a wonderful escape, quite witty, and a masterpiece of sound engineering. I really love it now!
