Unreleased sessions from original tapes! Minimalist composer Terry Riley premiered his work 'In C' in 1964, a big influence on minimalism in contemporary composition and on subsequent works by composers like Philip Glass, Steve Reich and John Adams. 1967's 'A Rainbow In Curved Air' and its companion piece 'Poppy Nogood And The Phantom Band' -both mixing repetition, electronics and tape-manipulation- were often performed in marathon, trance-inducing performances, and Riley was regarded a cult musician in avantgarde rock music circles. This LP presents two radio sessions recorded 1975 in Cologne, newly remastered from the original tapes for optimal sound. Terry Riley: organ, Don Cherry: trumpet, tambura. Limited to 300 copies.
