UK free jazz guitar icon in unreleased solo material remastered from the original reel-to-reel recordings recorded in London, 1974, Bailey playing mostly electric guitar. Previously unreleased recordings, remastered from original reel-to-reel tapes. The music on this CD came to light when, during preparations for the reissue of Derek Bailey's Lot 74 - Solo improvisations (incusCD57), Karen Brookman discovered tow reel-to-reel tapes stored along with the original album masters. They turn out to contain previously unreleased recordings, apparently from around the same time as the sessions for Lot 74.' Ffrom the CD notes.
"Even for a man who always said that he preferred music in a state of flux, these performances' refusal of any of the traditional means a musician might use to pin down the material he's working with is truly astonishing. The commitment to an approach where, at every moment, any element of the performer's vocabulary could be brought into play places the highest demands on the player's inventiveness and his capacity to construct phrases with distinct individual characters and proportions."-Alex Ward
