Recorded & mixed at the Big Apple recording studios, New York City.
Originally released in 1977.

"The music on North Star was originally written at the suggestion of Barbara Rose for the film, Mark Di Suvero, Sculptor, directed by François De Menil for Parrot Productions Ltd. In most cases, the titles of the selections refer to works by Di Suvero which appear in the film. For the purpose of making a record a certain amount of rearranging and remixing was necessary. Also, a different sequence was chosen in order to produce an independent and coherent listening experience. - Philip Glass"
