Here is first recording published by Maestro David Torn. Unlike second Everyman Band album "Without Warning", it was never released as CD nor digitally yet for whatever reason. The debut of this American quartet is much wilder than second album, but Torn's atmospheric guitar explorations are already there. He went on to record further ECM albums under his own name, "Best Laid Plans" (1985, duo with percussionist Geoffrey Gordon) and crimsonish "Cloud About Mercury" (1987, with Mark Isham on trumpet, Tony Levin on bass and stick and Bill Bruford on drums), and as a member of Jan Garbarek Group (It's OK To Listen To The Gray Voice, 1985). Torn returned to ECM in 2oo7 with his fantastic band Prezens. All Fogel, Yaw and Suchorsky were members of Lou Reed band.
I am sharing this album as clean vinyl rip, each side of the LP is one track. Cover scans are included.

All a musician can do is to get closer to the sources of nature, and so feel that he is in communion with the natural laws. ∞
