What's the Tony Conrad quote on the inner sleeve? It's unreadable in the pictures. Thanks!

A much talked about recording. Historically significant? No doubt! Good sound quality? Definitely not!

Quite famous for the ensuing controversy between La Monte Young and Tony Conrad about “authorship”, the release of “Inside the Dream Syndicate Vol I: Day of Niagara” by the venerable Table of the Elements label is probably not its most essential. True, this is one of the earliest documents on American minimalism (1965) and it has dense layers of abrasive drones but unfortunately this overall sounds like an awful bootleg. And yes, there’s a bump at 9:03 on the CD! If you want to hear much more relevant and better sounding stuff from the same era, go for Tony Conrad’s Early Minimalism 4-CD set: among other things it contains the original “Four Violins” recording (1964) and it kicks ass!
