The Newfeld-produced The Medium is the Message is not to be confused with the John Simon-produced 1968 LP, The Medium is the Massage, the title of which is taken from the McLuhan book of the same name. Simon’s collage–usually best remembered for a parrot squawking the title phrase over and over–is well worth a listen also.
