Cornelius Cardew

We Only Want The Earth

Label: MUSICNOW

Format: CD

Genre: Experimental

Out of stock

RESTOCKED, Long out of print, the tracks from this CD come from a rare collection of live recordings and studio sessions made between 1973-78. Plans to issue them on vinyl LP in the 70s never came to fruition (although small numbers of cassettes circulated). The original songs and arrangements are of the 70s and so reflect that time. Some people find it difficult to accept that revolutionary words can be set to beautiful melodies! Nearly 30 years later these unique tracks stand as a record of activity & many of the issues raised in the songs remain relevant today. Six tracks are Cardew compositions, other feature him singing or playing & all are testimony to his collective outlook & the broad canvas of his work on the 20th anniversary of his death.
