"Art is not a mirror - It is a hammer" - John Grierson
Anthony Moore / Dagmar Krause / Tim Hodgkinson / John Greaves / Chris Cutler / Lindsay Cooper / Peter Blegvad
Original Mix. Remastered and with new, amplified booklet of pictures and texts. Third in the definitive series.

A landmark in the history of European experimental rock, the third 'Cow' work, originally released on Virgin in 1975, represents the second act of joined forces between Henry Cow and Slapp Happy, and the first fully integrated appearance of Dagmar Krause. In Praise Of Learning is a unique piece of art, showing perfect unity of political content, with rock complexity, extended song form and free noise explorations. An impressive array of new compositions, including Tim Hodgkinson's masterwork 'Living In The Heart of the Beast' and Fred Frith's 'Beautiful As The Moon-Terrible As An Army With Banners'. An extraordinary set of music, performed by an amazingly rich line up: Dagmar Krause, Lindsay Cooper, Fred Frith, Tim Hodgkinson, John Greaves, Chris Cutler, Peter Blegvad, Anthony Moore, and guests: the great Mongezi Feza, Geoff Leigh and Phil Becque. A timeless classic!"
