Keyboard Study 2/Initiative

LP (Item 796829) BYG/Actuel (France), 1969 — Condition: Very Good+

A rare session on BYG/Actuel – not jazz, but avant classical work, featuring two striking modern pieces! Side one features Terry Riley's "Keyboard Study 2" – performed by pianists Gerard Fremy and Martine Joste. Side two features Pierre Marietan's "Initiative 1" – performed by GERM, the Groupe D'Etude et Realisation Musicale, featuring a lineup that includes piano, cello, trumpet, violin, bass, and voice.  © 1996-2020, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Cover has a moderate amount of stuck on paper along the bottom 4 inches.)

Very Good + (plus)

  • Vinyl should be very clean, but can have less luster than near mint.
  • Should still shine under a light, but one or two marks may show up when tilted.
  • Can have a few small marks that may show up easily, but which do not affect play at all. Most marks of this quality will disappear when the record is tilted, and will not be felt with the back of a fingernail.
  • This is the kind of record that will play "near mint", but which will have some signs of use (although not major ones).
  • May have slight 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.

Of all of John Cage's work the stuff that still stands up extremely well for us is his prepared piano compositions.
