Eric DolphyMusical Prophet – The Expanded 1963 New York Studio Sessions (Iron Man/Conversations/unissued tracks) (3CD set) ... CD
Resonance, Early 60s. New Copy 3CD ... $24.99 29.99
A fantastic package that finally gives these recordings their proper due – one that takes the cuts that were issued on the albums Iron Man and Conversations (plus a million cheapo packages over the years) – and restores them to their original mono, right from the tapes – then adds in 85 more minutes of never issued material! The tracks here are a perfect balance of Dolphy in his final year – with some spiritual jazz currents, but still a strong sense of swing – with a fantastic lineup that includes Prince Lasha on flute, Sonny Simmons on alto, Clifford Jordan on soprano, Woody Shaw on trumpet, Bobby Hutcherson on vibes, Richard Davis on bass, and both JC Moses and Charles Moffett on drums – almost a who's-who of people who would go onto shape the face of jazz in years to come. Titles include "A Personal Statement", "Ode To Charlie Parker", "Iron Man", "Come Sunday", "Burning Spear", "Muses For Richard Davis", "Alone Together", "Love Me", and "Jitterbug Waltz" – plus a number of other different versions of tunes. 3CD set comes with a 100 page booklet – featuring photos, essays, and interviews with Sonny Simmons, Sonny Rollins, Nicole Mitchell, Henry Threadgill, and David Murray.

Bill EvansEvans In England – Live At Ronnie Scotts ... CD
Resonance, 1969. New Copy 2CD ... $22.99 24.99
Bill Evans at the end of the 60s – sounding really wonderful here in a set of unreleased live recordings from London! Bill's got the fantastic Eddie Gomez here on bass – who really gets plenty of space to stretch out on the long tracks that make up most of the set – and Evans himself is very well-recorded, with a strong ear for that sense of tonal color that makes just about every pianistic choice from this period feel so completely unique! Marty Morell is on drums – as ever, a master of understatement, which really lets us fall in love all over again with Gomez and Evans – and the set features 18 tracks all recorded at Ronnie Scott's club in Soho, in December of 1969 – titles that include "So What", "Very Early", "Sugar Plum", "Our Love Is Here To Stay", "Waltz For Debby", "Round Midnight", "Elsa", "What Are You Doing The Rest Of Your Life", "Turn Out The Stars", "Goodbye", "Re Person I Knew", and "Two Lonely People".

Grant GreenFunk In France – From Paris To Antibes 1969/1970 ... CD
Resonance, Late 60s. New Copy 2CD ... $22.99 24.99
Beautiful rare work from the late 60s years of Grant Green – a time when the guitarist was giving us some of his funk classics on Blue Note, and when he really seemed to be opening up his groove! That's definitely the case here – as the tracks aren't just funky, but also spin out at nicely long lengths – first on a set of tracks recorded for radio in Paris in 1969, with Green on guitar, Larry Ridley on bass, and Don Lamond on drums – working in a trio mode with a very different vibe than Grant's earlier work. Barney Kessel joins on second guitar on the tune "I Wish You Love", and other tracks include "I don't Want Nobody To Give Me Nothing", "Oleo", and "Untitled Blues". The second two thirds of the record are even more unbridled – and feature long live performances from the 1970 Antibes Festival – with a cool quartet that features Claude Bartee on tenor and Clarence Parker on Hammond. All tracks are well past the 10 minute mark, most pushing 20 – and titles include two versions of "Upshot", plus "Hi Heel Sneakers" and "Hurt So Bad". CD

Grant GreenSlick – Live At Oil Can Harry's ... CD
Resonance, 1975. New Copy ... $16.99 18.99
Late live work from the mighty Grant Green – cut at a time when the guitarist wasn't giving us nearly enough records as in his early years, and was also tending to record in a more polished setting! That's definitely not the case here – as the tracks are long, and the music is live – recorded with a very cool small combo that includes Emmanuel Riggins on electric piano, Ronnie Ware on bass, Greg Williams on drums, and Gerald Izzard on percussion – all really stretching out on the long tracks in the set! Titles include a massive 26 minute take on "How Insensitive", an 8 minute version of "Now's The Time", and a long medley that spins out for over 30 minutes – and which includes "Vulcan Princess", "Skin Tight", "Woman's Gotta Have It", "Boogie On Reggae Woman", and "For The Love Of Money".

✨✧ Wes MontgomeryBack On Indiana Avenue – The Carroll DeCamp Recordings ... CD
Resonance, Late 50s. New Copy 2CD ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Really fantastic early work from guitar genius Wes Montgomery – a series of live recordings from his Indianapolis roots – done at a level that's quite different than his bigger records of the 60s! Even at this early age, Wes is already a chromatic master – able to get sounds out of his guitar that are so different than most of his contemporaries – playing in a small combo mode on most tracks, but with less of the R&B influence than most postwar guitarists. Instead, Montgomery is pure jazz all the way through, but also without that too-clean tone that some folks were going for – just a great focus on color and open, honest tone – in the company of musicians who include Carl Perkins and Buddy Montgomery on piano, Mel Rhyne on Hammond, Monk Montgomery on bass, David Baker on trombone, and David Young on tenor. Those last two players only make a few appearances – as most groups are horn-less, which gives Wes even more solo space – on titles that include "Four", "Between The Devil & The Deep Blue Sea", "It's You Or No One", "Ecaroh", "Sandu", "Whisper Not", "Four On Six", "Mr Walker", "Round Midnight", "West Coast Blues", "Tune Up", "So What", and "The End Of A Love Affair".

✨✧ Wes MontgomeryWes Montgomery In Paris – The Definitive ORTF Recording ... CD
Resonance, 1965. New Copy 2 CDs ... Out Of Stock
Beautifully-recorded material by the great Wes Montgomery – some fairly open-ended tracks recorded for French radio in the 60s – with guest work from tenorist Johnny Griffin on a number of tunes! The core group here is great enough on its own – as Wes' guitar is backed by superb piano from Harold Mabern – who's really opening his flow at this time in his career, and makes for some really imaginative collaboration here with Montgomery – and the rest of the combo features tight rhythm from Arthur Harper on bass and Jimmy Lovelace on drums. The addition of Griffin is a nice surprise – especially as Montgomery wasn't often playing with tenor in a small group setting by this point – and titles include "Twisted Blues", "Blue N Boogie/West Coast Blues", "Full House", "To wane", "Jingles", "Impressions", "Four On Six", and "Round Midnight".

✨✧ VariousStrange Funky Games & Things – Solid Rare Grooves & Smoking Seventies ... CD
BBE (UK), 1970s. Used ... Out Of Stock
The brilliant return of one of our favorite funky series ever – filled with top-shelf rarities that represent the best of 70s rare groove and break tracks! It's been a long time since we last saw a volume of Strange Games, but this set shows that it's been more than worth the wait – as BBE have come up with a batch of tunes so great, they must have been working on this one for years! As with other volumes, the names are familiar, but the cuts are all surprisingly hard to find – and they're all hand-picked for their resonance with modern use of the material in hip hop and remix culture – an aspect that makes even obscure tunes echo with a strong familiarity because of a bassline or drum break! And as an added treat, the CD and vinyl both have the same number of tracks – an increasingly rare phenomenon these days – with titles that include "Love & Happiness" by Monty Alexander, "She's My Summer Breeze" by The Reflections, "Come Into My Life" by The Supremes, "LA Night" by Yasuko Agawa, "Looking Up To You" by Michael Wycoff, "Give Me Your Love" by Barbara Mason, "Inside Out" by American Gypsy, "You Are What I'm All About" by The New Birth, "Loving You" by Donald Byrd, "Porcupine" by Nature Zone, "Strange Funky Games & Things" by Jay Dee, "Do It Baby" by The Miracles, "California Dreaming" by Eddie Hazel, and "Reflections" by Bill Conti.

Pearl BaileyPearl Bailey Sings Porgy & Bess & Other Gershwin Melodies ... LP
Roulette, 1959. Very Good ... $0.99
A really wonderful take on Porgy & Bess and other Gershwin standards by Pearl Bailey – there's just something about her naturally rich, bluesy, husky tone on these tunes that's simply wonderful! The backing is often well measured, but, occasionally a bigger sound and chorus vocals kick in. For the most part Pearl owns this stuff, giving warmth and resonance lost on more showbizzy takes on the style and compositions. Titles include "I Got Plenty Of Nothin". "I Got Rhythm", "Summertime", "Lady Be Good", "A Foggy Day", "They Can't Take That Away From Me", "Bess You Is My Woman", "It Ain't Necessarily So", "Clap Yo Hands" and more. LP, Vinyl record album

General Franco Lee EzuteOnye Kata Obia ... LP
Get/Bongo Joe (UK), 1989. New Copy (reissue)... $22.99
General Franco is alive and well – at least General Franco Lee Ezute, as the sound of his work on this record is so vibrant, it will keep his legacy alive for decades! The rhythms move fast, the guitar dances along at a similar speed, and Franco works with his Harmony Kings International Band in a really lively mode – brightly grooving, with a strong sense of resonance between everyone on board! The album features four long tracks – and the album's one of the group's most obscure, as it was only issued on the tiny GET label at the end of the 80s, when the scene was shrinking a bit. Titles include "Azuka Ego", "Late Ali Chukuma", "Onye Kata Obia", and "Olise Nekwu". LP, Vinyl record album

4 In 3 + 1Eat It – It's Still Good ... CD
Croatia (Croatia), 2016. New Copy ... $2.99
The group's got an unusual name, but it's a fitting one too – given that they're a trio, but with a Hammond organ that follows its usual role of working on keyboards and bass! The plus one in this case is Mario Bocic on tenor – who joins the unique Croatian/American combo for this album – often doing a great job of echoing the tones of the guitar of Davor Dolezal and organist Joe Kalowitz – an American player living in Zagreb! All group members seem to have a strong resonance in colors, and are driven nicely by the spaciously romping drums of Borku Rupena – on titles that include "Eat It It's Still Good", "Donna Lee Is Pissed Off", "Outline", "Dance Of The Vales", and "Peacefully".

Alvin LucierRicochet Lady – Trevor Saint ... CD
Black Truffle (Austria), 2019. New Copy ... $15.99
A really beautiful piece by composer Alvin Lucier – one that continues his longstanding legacy of sonic exploration, but with results that are maybe a bit more beautiful than ever before! "Ricochet Lady" is a composition for solo glockenspiel – a long-spun minimal piece that has the instrument performed next to a wall – so that the resulting sonic vibrations start to stimulate the instrument as it's being played – almost creating a sort of feedback in the glockenspiel, but at a level that's completely acoustic overall! The piece was composed for percussionist Trevor Saint, who performs it here in four different spaces – each of them a bit different, which makes for a very different sort of resonance on the instrument in each recording. Very beautiful! CD

Mobb DeepMurda Muzik ... CD
Loud, 1999. Used ... $4.99
The last album from Prodigy & Havoc's classic run in the 90s – still with the distinctively raw, now legendary street style of the early to mid-period Mobb Deep – with appearances by Nas, Raekwon, Big Noyd, 8-Ball, Lil Cease, Lil Kim and more. In their prime, Mobb Deep had a way of giving tried-it-true street rap a deeper emotional resonance than many of thier peers – without compromising on the grit or headnodding vibe – and there's plenty of prime material on Murda Muzik. 17 tracks in all: "Streets Raised Me", "Let A Ho Be A Ho", the classic "Quiet Storm" (plus a remix with Lil Kim), "Thug Muzik", "Murda Muzik", "It's Mine" with Nas, "The Realest" with Kool G Rap, "Can't F– Wit" wtih Raekwon & more.

Van MorrisonAstral Weeks ... LP
Warner, 1968. Very Good+ ... $49.99
Van's debut album for Warner Brothers and a pretty radical departure from anything he'd done before – breaking all kinds of new ground for his own most creative work and helping pave the way for all kinds of hauntingly poetic rock, folk rock, and singer-songwriter records to come! It doesn't take more than a few seconds of opening title track, with Morrison's rawly passionate voice and spiritually yearning lyrics, to know this is a pretty remarkable creative leap from pop leaning sound of "Brown Eyed Girl" and other preceding efforts – , and it gets even more far out from there both lyrically and instrumentally! It's almost folk jazz, arrangements wise, with flute and largely acoustic instrumentation, a really spontaneous feel to the sessions, and always hypnotic, seemingly stream of consciousness vocals by Van. As loose and spacious as the sound is, the emotional resonance is pretty heavy, and sequenced as a cycle: part one In The Beginning on side 1 and part two Afterwards on side 2. A stunner! Titles include "Astral Weeks", "Beside You", "Cyprus Avenue", "Sweet Thing", "Slim Slow Slider", and "Madame George". LP, Vinyl record album

John Tchicai/Cecil McBee/Garrison Fewell/Charlie KTribal Ghost ... LP
No Business (Lithuania), 2013. New Copy ... $22.99
The set's got a really beautiful sound – one that comes from the ringing guitar tones of Garrison Fewell, and the twin reeds of John Tchicai and Charlie Kohlhase – each of whom plays in a different channel of the recording! This approach gives the record a great sense of space from the start – as Tchicai plays tenor and bass clarinet, and Kohlhase plays alto, tenor, and baritone – with Fewell's guitar bridging the space and creating a resonance that really holds the whole thing together. And if that's not enough, the album's got some sublime bass work from Cecil McBee – often very subtle and soulful – plus just the right touch of drums from Billy Hart. The set's proof that they do still make 'em like they used to – at least in terms of spiritual avant sessions – and titles include "The Queen Of Ra", "Tribal Ghost", "Dark Matter", and "Llanto Del Indio".

BBE (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy 3LP Gatefold ... $24.99 34.99
A fantastic collection of Ethiopian funk – rare singles from the late 60s and early 70s – all brought together as an amazing illustration of a time when the scene was really on fire! The music here has this incredible resonance between ancient and modern – local and global – as older instrumental modes and singing styles get inflected with drums, basslines, and horn parts that are strongly influenced by American funk and soul – all at a level that makes for one of the most mindblowing mixes of music you'll ever hear! The "stompers" in the title is very well-chosen – as many of these grooves are maybe even more floor-shaking than conventional funk – with a different rhythmic structure than American styles, but an end result that's even more powerful overall. Titles include "Ewnetegna Feker" by Hirut Bekele, "Endiet Zengeshiw" by Selomon Shibeshi, "Alkedashim" by Birkineh Wurga, "Hasabe" by Teshome Meteku, "Mela Mela" by Seifu Hohannes, "Sigibgib Joroye" by Tilahun Gessesse, "Fikrishin Eshaleyu" by Getatchew Kassa, "Alagegnhwatem" by Muluken Melesse, "Ene Yewodedquat" by Tamrat Molla, "Felagote" by Bezunesh Bekele & Bodyguard Band, "Temeles" by Hirut Bekele & Alemayehu Eshete, and "Teleyeshign" by Merawi Yohannis.

Hat & Beard, 2018. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A great reworking of the photographs of Janette Beckman – an artist who captured some of the earliest days of hip hop in black and white images – which are then expanded here by new color contributions from a range of various artists! Beckman's photographs of hip hop have been presented previously in a few great books – but this unusual remix project really expands the scope – as the images are augmented by contributions from Futura, Lady Pink, Crash, Lee Quinones, Revolt, Todd James, and many others – very much with the mashup style promised by the title! The addition of graffiti and other urban styles to the photographs is great – and comes off even better than you might expect, with a vividness that will give these images resonance for more decades to come. Softcover, in full color throughout. Book

✨✧ Dave DouglasSpark Of Being – Soundtrack ... CD
Greenleaf, 2010. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
The first entry in Dave Douglas' Spark Of Being trilogy – and a really striking record that marks the project as a compelling standout in his career! There's definitely a soundtrack approach to the music here – lots of rich textures and tones, shifting on a sonic landscape that's somewhat different than Douglas' more familiar jazz modes, yet which still has some of the spontaneously creative elements you'd expect! Dave plays laptop in addition to trumpet – and DJ Olive supplies some similar sonic elements too – in addition to other instrumentation from Marcus Strickland on tenor, Adam Benjamin on Fender Rhodes, Brad Jones on Ampeg baby bass, and Gene Lake on drums. Despite the acoustic elements, there's a strong resonance from the electric parts – which often have these deeply spooky tones – and titles include "Observer", "Spark Of Being", "Creature Three", "Chroma", "Is It You", "Three Ring Circus", and "Split Personality".

Wadada Leo Smith is really on fire here – on a record that feels a lot more like something from the early 80s underground than some of his earlier work – from the lineup of performers, right down to the overall sound of the set! The group's very heavy on guitars – and features work from Michael Gregory Jackson, Henry Kaiser, Brandon Ross, and Lamar Smith on the instrument – often criss-crossing and weaving these beautiful sonic textures – powerful, but never too noisy, and augmented beautifully by some surprisingly thoughtful bass work by Bill Laswell – whose at his most subtle and collaborative here. The rest of the lineup features Pheeroan AkLaff on drums and Adam Rudolph on piano – and Wadada's trumpet really soars to the skies on the longer tracks, which include "Ornette Coleman's Harmelodic Sonic Hierographic Forms – A Resonance Change In The Millenium", "Ronald Shannon Jackson – The Master Of Symphonic Drumming & Multi-Sonic Rhythms Inscriptions Of A Rare Beauty", and "Ohnedaruth John Coltrane – The Master Of Kosmic Music & His Spirituality In A Love Supreme".

FMP/Be! (Germany), 1979. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
The "invented instruments" here are pretty darn cool – so much so, it's almost impossible to tell what they're comprised of from the recording! Hugh Davies is clearly using stringed elements at some points, if not many points – but it feels as if the guitars, cellos, or other instruments have been ripped apart, then reassembled with percussive, bowed, and resonance elements – so that they're used more in a way that generates non-melodic improvised sound, with almost electro-acoustic results! Phew – that's a bit of a mouthful on our part, and the obtuseness of our words is just a way of saying that the whole thing's like nothing you've ever heard – and warrants a deep listen for full understanding. Titles include "Shozyg Sequence", "Salad", "Spring Song", and "Music For Bowed Diaphragms". LP, Vinyl record album

Freddie was way more than just a blues guitarist, as his style here was a definite precursor to funk – hard, heavy, and with the kinds of little tricks that would be taken up a lot by other players in the funky 45 era. Tracks are all nice, and titles include "San Ho Zay", "Side Tracked", "Wash Out", "In The Open", "Heads Up", "Just Pickin", and "Swooshy". CD

In fact, there's a sense of darkness here that may even go beyond – this unusual sense of resonance that's not entirely in On-U territory, but not far off either – although turned maybe towards music that would have more of a crossover appeal to more conventional listeners of Jamaican sounds!

✨✧ Sun RaDiscipline 27-II (with bonus track) ... CD
Saturn/Corbett vs. Dempsey, 1972. New Copy Gatefold ... Out Of Stock
One of Sun Ra's greatest albums of the 70s – recording during the same sessions that yielded the famous Space Is The Place record for Blue Thumb, and done with a very similar feel – an expansive configuration of the Arkestra in peak form! The range of expression is really incredible – from the spiritual soul jazz of "Pan Afro", to the lightly grooving June Tyson vocals of "Neptune", to the extended suite "Discipline 27-II", a stretched-out spacey number with vocal "dramatizing" by Ra, Tyson, Ruth Wright, and Judith Holton. That track's a particularly great one, with the kind of spiritual resonance behind the spacey approach that rarely comes through as strongly on other albums – but the whole set is wonderful, and judging how reminscient of it some of the best, similarly-minded underground jazz is decades later – the whole thing is an amazing testament to how strong Ra's influence is today. Reissued here on CD for the first time ever – with a bonus "Untitled Outtake". CD

✨✧ VariousRoots Of Salsa Vol 2 – Classic Latin Tunes Become Salsa Hits (with bonus CD) ... LP
Grosso! (Spain), Late 40s/1950s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A great little series that goes way deeper than the salsa you might expect from the title – as the approach here is to pick tracks from many years before, but which still have strong resonance with the pride and power of the Latin scene of the 70s! The collection includes lots of tracks that might come as a real surprise – some larger orchestra material, tracks by trios, and other Latin styles that aren't normally associated with the spirit of salsa – which usually seems to draw most from the descarga years, and the small combos to emerge in the 60s. Instead, this series traces the music much farther back – and includes loads of hard-edged cuts that resonate surprisingly well with later salsa dura – including many records that you might have otherwise passed by! Tracks on this second volume include "Tumba Mabo" by Conjunto Niagara, "Fania" by Estrellas De Chocolate, "Hay Craneo" by Tito Rodriquez Y Los Lobos Del Mambo, "Sujetate La Lengua" by La Sonora Matancera, "Nadi Se Salva De La Rumba" by Trio Matamores, "La Familia" by Jose Curbela, "Llora Timbero" by La Orquesta Siboney, "Micaela Me Boto" by Chappotin Y Sus Estrellas, and "El Paso Del Mulo" by Conjunto Colonial.

✨✧ VariousRoots Of Salsa Vol 3 – Classic Latin Tunes Become Salsa Hits (with bonus CD) ... LP
Grosso! (Spain), Late 40s/1950s/Early 60s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A great little series that goes way deeper than the salsa you might expect from the title – as the approach here is to pick tracks from many years before, but which still have strong resonance with the pride and power of the Latin scene of the 70s! The collection includes lots of tracks that might come as a real surprise – some larger orchestra material, tracks by trios, and other Latin styles that aren't normally associated with the spirit of salsa – which usually seems to draw most from the descarga years, and the small combos to emerge in the 60s. Instead, this series traces the music much farther back – and includes loads of hard-edged cuts that resonate surprisingly well with later salsa dura – including many records that you might have otherwise passed by! Tracks on this third volume include "Me Voy Pa Pinar Del Rio" by Orquesta Riverside, "La Jicotea" by Rosendo Ruiz, "Suena Tu Bongo" by Roberto Faz, "Guaguanco A Todos Los Barrios" by Conjunto Estrellas De Chocolate, "Guarare" by Noro Morales, "Pao Pao" by Monchito & His Mambo Royals, "Pa'Chismoso Tu" by Rene Touzet, "Aprietala En El Rincon" by Cheo Marquetti, and "Arinanara" by La Orquesta Casino De La Playa.

✨✧ Duke JordanSolo Piano – One For The Library ... CD
Storyville/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1993. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Not one for the library in a "please be quiet" sort of way – and instead, a nicely strong-toned set of solo work from the great Duke Jordan – still very much at the top of his talent here in the early 90s! There's a resonance to the piano that's really wonderful – maybe a bit more echo than you'd hear on some of Duke's trio recordings – which both has the pianist folding back on himself, and emphasizing the strength of his choices on the keys – almost always inherently rhythmic, even on the ballads. The set has a good number of Jordan compositions – including "No Problem", "Flight To Jordan", "Night Walk", "Two Loves", "Parisian Hop", and "Jor Du" – alongside versions of "Lush Life", "Three Little Words", "Yesterdays", and "The Way You Look Tonight".

✨✧ Louis SclavisRouge ... CD
ECM (Germany), 1991. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Louis Sclavis has always been a reedman who can make his instruments slide in alongside a wide variety of settings – a bit like John Surman at times – with a shift in phrasing and tone that often seems to create more resonance with other instruments in a performance than you're likely to hear from a more conventional saxophonist! Here, Sclavis displays those qualities wonderfully – playing a variety of clarinets and soprano saxophone – in a quintet that also includes violin, bass, drums, piano, and a bit of keyboards – used mostly to illuminate his own compositions, which always seem to have this painterly approach to sound. Titles include "Reflet", "Nacht", "One", "Face Nord", "Rouge/Porquoi Une Valse", and "Yes Love". CD

Actress X London Contemporary OrchestraLageos ... CD
Ninja Tune, 2018. New Copy ... $8.99 13.99
A pretty moody little collaboration between electronic wizard Actress (Darren Cunningham), and the London Contemporary Orchestra – both working here in a way that's quite unlike other records of this nature we've heard in the past! At first, we were maybe guessing that the set would have a Cinematic Orchestra vibe – but the Actress presence really shapes every sound from the start, even the rich acoustic elements of the larger lineup – often creating these unnerving sounds and shapes that make it feel as if Cunningham is battling the whole ensemble by himself! Other times, things are more subtle – with a resonance between electric and acoustic that's completely haunting – and titles include "Hubble", "Surfer's Hymn", "Chaos Rain", "Chasing Numbers", "Galya Beat", "Momentum", "Voodoo Posse Chronic Illusion", and "Audio Track 5".

Remko SchaMachine Guitars (clear vinyl pressing) ... LP
Etats-Unis/Superior Viaduct, 1981/1982. New Copy (reissue)... $23.99 25.00
A totally unique album of electric guitar-generated sounds – created in the same generation as the experiments of Glenn Branca and Sonic Youth, but born out of a completely different energy altogether! The title here should be taken at a completely literal level – as the album features guitars played by machines – a different range of sabre saws, ropes, bars, or brushes – all brought into contact with the strings of one or more guitars, then set loose to make this beautifully cyclical music! Because of the resonances of the instruments, there appears to be some shifts in the sounds – so that the music isn't entirely repetitive, and instead has these surprising variations that seem to come from the interaction of the elements. Titles include "Thrash", "Switch", "Shake", "Throb", "Stroke", "Sweep", and "Slam". LP, Vinyl record album
(Limited edition of 500 – on clear vinyl!)
