Recorded and mixed at Tactical Sound, Jan.-Feb. 1982.

"This record represents two aspects of the music for Alan Greenberg's film "Land Of Look Behind". The first side presents material developed from the location recordings made in Jamaica during filming. The rhythm patterns for "Confusion In Belief" and "Testimony And Honor" are based on the Nya Binghi, with vocal material being drawn from monologues that appear in the film. The second side is comprised of a remix and new arrangement of music used in the film. The voices on "Gun Court" again coming from the location recordings. Also used in the film are "Districts" and "Field Characteristics" from "Closed System Potentials"."

Pressing sounds awesome. I found a used copy at the shop today and I’m glad picked it up. Lush but sparse (and suggestively melodic) ambient/electronic. Every song is a whole vibe. The album cover spine on mine says “09V | 2016”, which I guess distinguishes it from the 2017 reissue?
