Wonderful album! Careful: on my copy the needle runs on the label on side E.

With the addition of the bonus tracks this upgraded issue of this seminal Cecil Taylor LP can be fairly judged as definitive. The understated packaging leaves the focus exactly where it should be--on the music. The LPs (on opaque vinyl) themselves sound wonderful--certainly an improvement over the original US pressing on Freedom (I can't speak to the many non-US pressings of this material) though it should be noted that the sound quality of the bonus tracks is lower than the rest--this is no fault of the pressing, but is due to limitations in the source recording. Now long out of print grab a copy of this before it eventually shoots up in price when people realize the just how scarce this issue is. I don't know the pressing size, but it can be fairly surmised that it was rather limited as were the other pressings on Revenant. That it appeared on Revenant, the label of the late John Fahey, is apt.--two American iconoclasts together for the first and last time (metaphorically speaking of course).
