This record is so weird in a wonderful way... :-D

The title is a nod to the improvised nature of the recordings - Arthur Russell arranged the tracks so the rhythm would change every 24 bars.

Once again, Arthur Russell made a crypto-house/disco that makes almost no sense-but Larry Levan caned this record at the Paradise Garage. Levan was always driven by 'disco' that didn't quite make sense, and thus his love of Russell's extraordinary records.
