Thanks very much Nick. I'm hearing this with new ears.

This showing up on Herb Ailbert's imprint at all was surprising back in '76. Then again, they did record and publish Ornette...

Probably the the best of THE RE's output for recorded sound. I also love the succinct, relative brevity of the pieces offered here. I'm relly looking forward to comparing to the rip that I have. Thanks for the post.

This album had a very long-stay in the cut-out bins; really wasn't thought of very-highly in its' time...,but times change,don't they?

I first got to know this through this blog, and now have a Brazilian pressing, with a cover in Portuguese. I´m not sure how many of these would have been produced, but the sound quality is very good. The music is exceptional, with an edge and bite which seems quite distinct from most of the other ensembles of the time - AEOC, Human Arts Ensemble, Black Arts Ensemble, and so on. I love the music these different groups created.

Excellent, sounds much better !!

Can anybody do a re-up of their 2005 Genoa anywhere but RapidShare ? All the parts have extraction errors (on multiple PCs / OS so it would be great if I could get it all

Thanks in advance
