✨✧ John Cale & Terry RileyChurch of Anthrax ... LP
Columbia, 1970. Near Mint- (reissue)... $16.99
An avant pop/offbeat classic from John Cale and Terry Riley! We'll be fast to admit that Cale's solo stuff don't always float our boat – but this collaboration with minimalist composer Terry Riley is nothing short of an amazing. It's an album of mostly long modal instrumental tracks (with one vocal one) that grooves along in a spacey funky way. Riley plays piano, organ, and soprano sax – and Cale joins in on bass, guitar, viola, and harpsichord. The two of them groove together in these totally cool tracks that build and build, with minimal lines repeating over and over in endlessly fascinating groove – in a way that touches on a weirdly funky mode! The cut "Ides Of March" has the potential to be dancefloor groover in the jazz dance scene, and there's lots of other great tracks like "Church of Anthrax", "The Protege", and "The Hall of Mirrors at the Palace of Versailles".

✨✧ Tony Conrad and FaustOutside The Dream Syndicate – 30th Anniversary Edition ... CD
Table Of The Elements, 1973. Used 2 CDs ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
The first-ever full album of music from Tony Conrad – issued in the early 70s after years of Conrad's secret input to the global avant garde – including some key years in New York, where he influenced John Cale and a generation of others who rose to greater fame! This set really has Conrad breaking out with a boldness right from the start – moving away from the arty underground, and trying to hit some more creative interplay with the more adventurous rock scene – which, in this case, includes strong work on the record by the young Faust – who turn out to be a perfect vehicle for Conrad's ideas of minimal sound progressions and tonal textures! Each side of the record features one long track – with heavy drums at the core, ala Faust – mixed with guitars, violin, and other waves of sound – almost in a pulsing space that recalls Cale's work with Terry Riley, or which is a more serious take on modes that Can was experimenting with too – although with a starkness and darkness that really lives up to the cover image. Titles include "The Side Of The Machine" and "The Side Of Man & Womankind". CD
