Barcode: 0090771808219

Catalog no.: MH0008082

Item ID: 468820

RELEASED FOR BLACK FRIDAY, 2018. FIRST COME, FIRST SERVE! Recorded in 1973, these solar guided improvisations of unbridled cacophony were originally rejected by ABC/Impulse, due to sounding way too unusual! 'Crystal Spears' (or 'Crystal Clear' as mentioned on the tape box) subsumes a cathartic brawl between Minimoog and Yamaha combo organ, with percussionists providing tonal textures, and plaintive oboe colliding with roaring electronic keyboards. Pressed on ORANGE VINYL, this special release comes with liner notes by Ra-ficionado Brother Cleve! A poster is also included!

Also available: CRYSTAL SPEARS (CD).
