Review by snobb
SPECIAL COLLABORATOR Honorary Collaborator
2 stars Obscure recordings from the vaults,released in 2000 for a first time only. John Cale's early period musicianship (he doesn't sing, but play viola there) with great avant garde minimalist music names of mid 60-s.

All the album is one long composition (drone). Violin, Cale's viola, minimalist percussion and hardly recognizable vocals. Long composition,filled with slightly changing sound of two acoustic strings instruments, without intonations,dynamics,rhythm or any structure.

Interesting evidence of early minimalist (drones) music from mid 60-s, with John Cale viola sound signature. Has no relations with progressive rock music though. For Cale collectors only (or minimalist avant garde fans, but it's a theme for different site than PA).
