"possibly the most ridiculous / covetable experimental-music edition that’s crossed my foldable iceberg table since it was relocated earlier this year - four lps in their own individual sleeves, tucked into a cloth-bound / embossed box along with a signed, 36-page 12” x 12” book by / about the belgian outsider artist / musician baudouin oosterlynck ...
