5 stars Odd and compelling piece. I first heard this in 74 when a teenager. I had found it at my local record library and was magnetized by the sleeve: otherwordly kind of prog image; oddly De Chirico hinting at parallel worlds. It seems it was first written for BBC Dance Worshops by a New Yorker called or calling himself Burt Alcantara; might be his real name but there are no photos or useful bios anywhere online I can find. Anyway New York and BBC Dance Workshop seem solid info. Beyond that it is all as mysterious as the music which is electric, compulsive, and totally coherent altho at times it feels as if the man just sat down and played it all in one go with no rehearsal no forethought or plan. 44 years later I still find it exactly as I did aged 16. Mysterious. Beautiful. Mildly unnerving; enervating. Any lover of prog/electronic music must hear this and I would surmise they will be captured straightaway and knowledge of this will never leave them. I am a fan of this album. Any other recording of Alcantara I can find is a Ballet Rambert opera called Tutti-Frutti and the second half of an album named Napalis [KLlyLrkXTvg in YT takes u there].... beyond that enigma .... like the music here
