John CageLollipops – 25 Year Retrospective Concert/Indeterminacy/Double Music/Cartridge Music/Fontana Mix (3CD set) ... CD
El (UK), Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy 3CD ... $19.99
An excellent collection of early work by John Cage – and a set that's maybe not nearly as sweet as you'd guess from the "lollipops" in the title! The box is worth it alone for its presentation of the 25 Year Retrospective Concert – which brings together 1958 performance versions of important early works, including "Imaginary Landscape No 1", "Six Short Inventions For Seven Instruments", "First Construction In Metal", "She Is Asleep" (in quartet and duo version), "Sonatas & Interludes", "Music For Carillion No 1", "Williams Mix", and "Concert For Piano & Orchestra", which was new at the time. The package then goes on to include "Double Music" by Cage with Lou Harrison, the spoken word/piano statement "Indeterminacy" done with David Tudor, and key early readings of "Cartridge Music" and "Fontana Mix".

Fred Frith/Nicolas Humbert/Marc ParisottoCut Up The Border ... CD
Rogue Art (France), 2020. New Copy ... $15.99 16.99
One of the most revolutionary albums in years from guitarist Fred Frith – and a set that really returns to the sonic genius of his important records of the 70s! The format is quite unusual – as the music combines live performance with reworked sounds that were recorded for the 1990 film Step Across The Border – cut up and used in various ways, as referenced by the title of the album – while Frith plays endlessly effortlessly creative sounds on the guitar, plus a bit of bass, organ, and piano too. Nicolas Humbert and Marc Parisotto handle the larger sonic landscape and do the cutting up, based on core recordings done decades ago by Jean Vapeaur – and there's a sense of imagination and wit to the recording that shows us that the core spirit of Frith is alive and well!

✨✧ Pierre HenryPolyphonies (12CD set) ... CD
Universal, New Copy 12CD ... Out Of Stock
A fittingly massive collection of works by one of the most important electronic composers ever! The 12CD Polyphonies features material chosen and remastered by Henry himself specifically for this box set in the months before he passed away, so he's pretty well in charge of his legacy here. It's made up of compositions from as early as 1950 and as late as 2016, brilliantly showing how vital Henry was throughout the decades – with 9 of the 29 pieces previously unreleased – and includes "Chroniques Terriennes" (2016), "Etudes Transcendantes Pour Un Piano Imaginaire" (2015), "Grande Toccata" (2006), "Gymkhana" (1970), "Pleins Jeux" (2008), "Kyldex" (1973), "Une Tour De Babel" (1988)"La Reine Verte", Rock Electronique" (1963), "Histoire Naturelle" (1997), "Facies" (1960), "Le Livre Des Morts Egyptien" (1988), "Fragments Pour Artaud" (1970), "La Noire A Soixante" (1961), "Deuxieme Symphonie" (1972), "Spatiodynamisme" (1953), "Concerto Des Ambiguites" (1950) and more.

✨✧ Meredith MonkKey ... CD
Lovely, 1971. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Haunting early work by Meredith Monk – recorded in 1971, and performed by a small group of vocalists – all working with Monk in an incredible presentation of her new ideas for voice! The music is already at a place that's light years ahead of most – clearly marking the singer as one of the most visionary artists of her generation – as important as Philip Glass or Steve Reich – even though the more personal presentation of Monk's music never got her into the concert hall repertoire as much as her contemporaries. Meredith plays electric organ, jews harp, and sings – and the piece is one long work that covers the entire album. CD

✨✧ Terry RileyRainbow In Cologne ... CD
Be! (Germany), 1971. New Copy 2CD ... Out Of Stock
A fantastic addition to the catalog of Terry Riley during his most influential years – a set that features two long, extended organ performances by the minimalist – both on a par with his best records of the time! The similarity in title to Riley's classic Rainbow In Curved Air album is no surprise – as the sound here is very similar, and he performs a stunning 61 minute version of that song on the first CD in the set – one that's more open, more expressive, and more compelling than even the studio take – as Terry layers his lines on organ in a really beautiful way! CD2 features and equally wonderful version of "Persian Surgery Dervishes" – almost 50 minutes in length, and done at a level that shows how important individual examples of performance were amidst the minimalist canon!

Stockhausen/Pierre Schaeffer/Pierre Henry/etcAdventures In Sound ... CD
El (UK), 1950s. Used ... $6.99
An amazing collection of experimental sounds from the European scene of the postwar years – key electronic and musique concrete recordings from some of the most important composers of the 20th Century! The package is a great introduction to this important stretch in music – and features recordings that are every bit as mindblowing now as they were over 50 years ago – really revolutionary sounds and tones that went onto have an undeniable impact on modern music, yet which still sound even more amazing here in the original source recordings. Includes "Poeme Electronique" by Edgard Varese, "Voile D'Orphee" by Pierre Henre, "Diamorphoses" and "Concret PH" by Iannis Xenakis, "Studie Nr 1" and "Gesang Der Junglinge" by Karlheinz Stockhausen, and "Cinq Etudes De Bruits" by Pierre Schaeffer.
