2012 repress, originally issued pre-9/11. "Astounding 1975 Radio Bremen session from Germany -- never before released, by one of the greatest working bands in the history of European improvised music is offered for your consideration on Hunting The Snake. How can you lose? This all-star ensemble features Alexander von Schlippenbach on piano, Evan Parker on saxophones, Peter Kowald on bass, and Paul Lovens on drums and singing saw. A brilliant, previously unreleased 77 minute program from an under-documented powerhouse, in a luscious package featuring a gallery of period portraits by the great Italian photographer Roberto Masotti and a stunning cover painting by the legendary Michael Snow combine to make Hunting The Snake an unbeatable package for anyone interested in a peak period from one of the great European music ensembles of all time."
