Wild stuff! Hans Werner Henze juxtaposes a number of different sound groups – including the Gunter Hampel Free Jazz Ensemble, Fires Of London, Philip Jones Brass Quintet, and the percussion of Stomu Yamash'ta – and he throws in some vocalizing by baritone William Pearson. The piece is a symbolic journey to the place of Natascha Ungeheuer, a fictious "siren of a false utopia", who "promises to lead the leftist bourgeois to a new kind of security, which will permit him to preserve his revolutionary clear conscience without taking an active part in class warfare." Clearly the German postwar conscience had a big part in the composition of this piece, but if you forget the dated politics, there's some nice noisy moments – and great percussion by Yamash'ta. (Cover has tape along the top seam and a cutout notch.)  © 1996-2017, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Near Mint - (minus)

  • Black vinyl that may show a slight amount of dust or dirt.
  • Should still be very shiny under a light, even with slight amount of dust on surface.
  • One or two small marks that would make an otherwise near perfect record slightly less so. These marks cannot be too deep, and should only be surface marks that won't affect play, but might detract from the looks.
  • May have some flaws and discoloration in the vinyl, but only those that would be intrinsic to the pressing. These should disappear when the record is tilted under the light, and will only show up when looking straight at the record. (Buddah and ABC pressings from the 70's are a good example of this.)
  • May have some slight marks from aging of the paper sleeve on the vinyl.
  • Possible minor surface noise when played.

Additional Marks & Notes

If something is noteworthy, we try to note it in the comments — especially if it is an oddity that is the only wrong thing about the record. This might include, but isn't limited to, warped records, tracks that skip, cover damage or wear as noted above, or strictly cosmetic flaws.
