This CD represents the first album by Terry Riley, originally released in 1966, as well as the first recordings Riley made using his two personal Revox reel-to-reel tape machines (or 'Time Lag Accumulators') later heard on his groundbreaking Poppy Nogood and the Phantom Band All Night Flight. In 1966, Terry Riley was performing hypnotic keyboard studies in his loft, and later, such venues as the Electric Circus. Reed Streams, Riley's debut record, offers a rare glimpse into his early trance music for keyboard and solo soprano saxophone. These highly desirable recordings, unavailable since 1966, have been digitally remastered from the original tapes." Reed Streams has been remastered from the original tapes.The 2 tracks from Reed Streams (originally issued on LP by the Mass. College of Arts label!) are: "Untitled Organ" (1964-66, 20:12) and "Dorian Reeds (1966, 14:56).
In addition, there is a psychedelic big-band adaptation of 'In C -- Mantra' under the direction of Walter Boudreau as recorded in 1970. 'In C,' the standard minimalist classic, can be heard here in all its electric, psychedelic glory.
