Wild Bull

LP (Item 3191) Nonesuch, 1968 — Condition: Very Good

A landmark early recording from Morton Subotnick – and a piece of music that really pushed analogue electronics forward from the previous academic generation! Subtonick's style here is much more freewheeling – with almost an improvisational feel at times – sounds and noises that are quite bracing at times, mixed with more subtle elements from time to time. Like Subotnick's Silver Apples Of The Moon, the album features one long composition – stretched out into many shades and spaces, with poetic inspiration that definitely comes through in the music – even though it's quite dark and spooky at times!  © 1996-2021, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Cover has edge and surface wear.)

Very Good

  • Vinyl can have some dirt, but nothing major.
  • May not shine under light, but should still be pretty clean, and not too dirty.
  • May have a number of marks (5 to 10 at most), and obvious signs of play, but never a big cluster of them, or any major mark that would be very deep. Most marks should still not click under a fingernail.
  • May not look near perfect, but should play fairly well, with slight surface noise, and the occasional click in part of a song, but never throughout a whole song or more.
  • This is clearly a copy that was played by someone a number of times, but which could also be a good "play copy" for someone new.

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.

Nice 1968 recordings of works by Cage and Lukas Foss. The Cage "Concerto For Prepared Piano" is performed by Yuji Takahashi on a prepared piano, as the main soloist with a larger ensemble. The sound is as you'd imagine from Cage's prepared piano stuff, with lots of cool off-kilter piano ... LP, Vinyl record album

Nonesuch, 1986. Sealed
A totally great, totally cool little record – one in which experimental musician Scott Johnson uses his guitar to trigger a set of spoken phrases! The approach is somewhere between early Steve Reich tape experiments and Frippertronics – as Johnson makes these great loops of sound that ... LP, Vinyl record album
