Hell yes, this is what I talk about when I say I love The Residents. Their '70s stuff is just awesome. I wouldn't say "amazing" (even though it IS amazing how they can make such insane music with anything that isn't musical instruments), 'cause none of this is TOO epic, you know. But it still kicks ass in so many ways.
Baby Sex is the last of the pre-Santa Dog recordings. The album's cover did cause some serious controversy, since it could very well be considered child pornography. For that reason, it's obviously not available anywhere. The image you see here is just some random band photo.
The first side is great from start to finish. "We Stole This Riff", as the title implies, stole the main riff from Tim Buckley's "Down by the Borderline" and included some noodly guitar solos and somewhat interesting lyrics ("we'll steal from you! FUCK YOU!").
"Holelottadick" is a parody of Led Zeppelin's "Whole Lotta Love", and it's crazy as all hell.
"Baby Sex" is my least favorite track on the album. It's not really a song, it's some ominous stuff playing in the background while a woman reads a sex story about a man and his daughter. It's kinda gross, so I won't get much into it.
"Deepsea Diver Song" is so nice. It sounds so much like a folk song, it's just really sweet. The same with "Cantaten to der Dyin Prunen" (which has a riff that's almost identical to "You Yesyesyes" in Fingerprince).
"King Kong" is a neat Frank Zappa cover. It's the only instrumental song on the album, and it has some great guitar solos by Snakefinger.
Side two is where it gets freaking amazing. "Somethin' Devilish" and "The Fourth Crucifixion" aren't THAT great, but they surely are interesting: they're excerpts from The Residents' first-ever performance at the Boarding House in San Francisco.
"Hallowed Be Thy Ween" is one of my favorite pieces of music ever. It's divided into five parts, but it doesn't really matter, 'cause they're all so jumbled together by random sounds and noise, along with some poetry and weird instrumentation. It also includes a studio version of "D is for Doorknob", and it sounds lovely. "Kamakazi Lady" also makes an appearance (I was quite surprised to hear it, since I had heard Residue Deux before I knew about this).
In the end, Baby Sex is a great experience, even though it's FAR from recommended for beginners, and it might just scare them away. Try listening to Duck Stab or Meet The Residents first, and then you may be ready for this.
