Paradigm Discs present a 40th anniversary vinyl reissue of Anal Magic And Rev. Dwight Frizzell's Beyond The Black Crack. It was originally released in mono, in an edition of 200 by Cavern Custom in 1976. Beyond the Black Crack was the concept of Reverend Dwight Frizzell, a musician, film maker, doctor of metaphysics and minister in the Universal Church of Life. Mentioned on the pivotal Nurse With Wound list, it remains a little known classic and one of the most unique listening experiences in modern experimental music.
Recorded between 1974 and 1976 in locations as diverse as factories, the pyramid opposite Harry Truman's grave site, as well as more "conventional" concert settings. Beyond The Black Crack is a dark, dizzying and exhilarating journey through free jazz, electronics and environmental sound, all shattered by Frizzell's radical tape editing.
This reissue has been remastered from the tapes. Includes a four-page booklet with photos from the time; Pressed at Optimal in an edition of 500 (numbered).
