bravo Nick, this is one on a list of albums that I want to listen, many thanks
thank you Nick to gives me the chance to discover more music of A R Penck, but my conclusion is that personally I'm really not touched by his music. Even Jeanne Lee that is amazing in most of her recordings is not really shinning on this performance in my opinion. I can suggest to all the people who have listened this lp to compare this version of "going through" with the one recorded few years later on the album of Billy bang "Live at Carlos 1" or on the fantastic live posted some years ago by Kinabalu (?)http://inconstantsol.blogspot.fr/2008/03/billy-bangs-fire-within-live-nyc-1985.htmlBoth versions are shorter than this one but the energy is completely different... It is just my opinion.
forgot to say one positive thing about A R Penck. I like two of his recordings posted by Nick: "Live Konzert Basel" and "Don't Freeze Yourself to Death..." here Jeanne Lee is simply fantastic, the 1F link is still active here:http://inconstantsol.blogspot.fr/2014/04/jeanne-lee-dont-freeze-yourself-to.html
Thanks a lot, Nick!
I can say that I regret to have written negative comments about A R Penck. All the TTT posted by Nick or Kinabalu invited me to listen more carefully to his music. Sure he is not an accomplished musician but he have the feeling to create interesting bands and with him, a certain atmosphere is created, it is perhaps in this way that his music can be received.

Just got the word on Penck in the Boston Globe. All about his art, not one word on his music!Maybe some more Penck music will show up for us fans.RIP
This one I've also missed in 2017.
Thanks so much for the re-up.Correct Silence was right when he said that a certain atmosphere is created on A.R. Penck's recordings. I find that on Side A of this one there are certain moments of not only a lyrical, but a slight spooky vibe. And actually I like the version on Side B more than on Billy Bang's own recording, maybe because I found Bang's too be just slightly too refined, and the one on this recording is rougher and more spontaneous.
