    "MUSIC AND FOLKLORE" is a weekly radio program heard on station KPFA, Berkeley, America's only listener-sponsored F M radio station. The program is devoted primarily to the presentation of exotic music - African, Indian, West Indian, Flamenco, Balinese, etc. Occasionally guests are interviewed on the program. These guests might be foreign students from the cultures of which the music hails; they might be local experimenters in the fields of quasi-ethnic or concrete music; or they might be a mythological "authority" such as Dr. Sholem Stein or the multi-ethnic "Jocko". Most of the materials for this recording were taken from various programs in the "Music and Folklore" series.

  8. Various / Charles Collingwood - Eleven Presidents Speak: Every President From Cleveland To Eisenhower: Actual Voices From Their Famous Speeches

    2 For Sale from $2.50

    Copyright 1956 by General Electric.

    "Not For Sale - A Columbia Transcription Production"

    This release was not sold, according to the label, and appears to have been a complimentary promotional item used to sell Hotpoint's "Hi-Vi" television range around 1956. Much of the material was sourced, again according to the label, from a Heritage 12" long-playing album entitled "If I'm Elected" (H-1201), although some of the recordings of FDR, Truman, and Eisenhower are credited to Tony Schwartz of Legend Recordings, Inc.

    Charles Collingwood's linking narration provides a background for clips taken from recordings, some on early acetate discs and even wax cylinders, of Presidents going as far back as Grover Cleveland (in his second campaign for the White House of 1891). Cleveland's voice is followed by that of William McKinley, who was President until his assassination in 1901.

    The label appears to have listed the Presidents out of order (see photo for Side A), as it places Taft before Theodore Roosevelt. Roosevelt, who was President from McKinley's assassination until 1908, was succeeded by William Howard Taft, who was President from 1909-1912, after which he became the only American President to also hold the position of Chief Justice of the Supreme Court. The order has been corrected for the track listing.

    The sleeve notes are by author Irving Stone, perhaps best known for his book "The Origin", although he is credited on the sleeve as author of "Men to Match My Mountains", published by Doubleday & Co., New York.

  14. John Cage / David Tudor - Indeterminacy: New Aspect Of Form In Instrumental And Electronic Music

    8 For Sale from $37.00

    Includes booklet.

    Late in September in 1958 I was in Stockholm in a hotel. I set about writing the present lecture which I was obliged to give a week later at the Brussels Fair. I recalled a remark made years before by David Tudor that I should make a talk that was nothing but stories. The idea was appealing when he gave it to me but I had never acted on it. A few weeks before, in Darmstadt, Karlheinz Stockhausen had said, "I'll publish your Brussels talk in Die Reihe." I replied, "You'd better wait and see what it is I write." He said, "No matter what it is, I'll publish it." My intention in putting 90 stories together in an unplanned way is to suggest that all things, sounds, stories (and, by extension, beings) are related, and that this complexity is more evident when it is not over-simplified by an idea of relationship in one person's mind. Most of the stories are things that happened that stuck in my mind. Others I read in books and remembered, those for instance, from Kwang-Tse and Sri Ramakrishna. The 2nd, 15th, 16th, 46th, and 75th stories are to be found somewhere in the literature surrounding Zen. David Tudor: piano, whistles, tape machines, and amplified slinky.

    David Tudor plays material from his part of the Concert for Piano and Orchestra (1957-58), using tracks from the Fontana Mix (1958-59) as noise elements where these arae notated in Concert

    There are 2 different sets here. One has Blue/Silver record labels and the "INDETERMINACY' on the box front is Red. The other has Red/Black record labels and the word "INDETERMINACY" on the box lid is Grey. (cortical)

  16. Jack Kerouac Featuring Al Cohn And Zoot Sims - Blues And Haikus

    4 For Sale from $225.00

    The art-soaked, kicks-filled life of Jack Kerouac produced three records, and the second one Blues and Haikus found him in the studio with post-bop saxophone mainstays Al Cohn and Zoot Sims. While the record only sporadically attains the heights of its rather lofty ambitions, it remains a fascinating document, for it illuminates Kerouac as an artist of beautiful if problematic vision, vindicates Cohn and Sims as a pair of true pros, and brings great perspective to the mindset and milieu of the ‘50s American hipster.
