heres one of my very favourites,if youve never heard bley ,this is a great place to start.
this is boromirs rip of the original vinyl, i have the freedom double album reissue which also includes live 'blood' in amsterdam from the following year.
but this single disc version ,(now pretty rare) is absolutely essential.
at the time this was recorded ,the conventional pno.,db and drum
format ,had largely fallen out of favour with the avant guard.
weve searched hard to assertain its availability,without luck the reissue on black lion from 10 years or so ago is pretty much out of print.
i like this better than closer and barrage from the same period.
i cant find a review of this (even in the all music guide) no doubt about it though this is one of his BEST, from the period.
