No, I've had it for decades, probably picked it up at a thrift store or library sale. Funny thing is I didn't realize what it was until I spun it and heard the familiar tune familiarly performed.

Wedged somewhere between the Beaudoin and the King Crimson I wouldn't mind hearing Gidon Kremer's Kremerata Baltica recording of Vladimir Martynov's "Come In!" It's sappy, but in a good way.

Cripes, I'm so sappy I'd settle for the Adagio right now.

I dunno, this tune seems pretty slow. I mean, if it was released in '77 it sure has taken a long time to get here.
  Fri. 5/16/14 4:04pm Clay:

You should talk up the ramp of every song until the lyrics come in unless there are no lyrics, then just talk all the time. People love that. Music isn't so important as your personality.

Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 5/16/14 4:19pm Caryn:

@Clay: I love one of the directors' other work, but it's a choice between the doc or Scorcese on the other channel, and Marty wins.
Avatar Fri. 5/16/14 4:20pm Mark Helsten:

I missed the Kurt talky bit. Damn work getting in the way of my radio experiences!!

I'm gonna watch that rush doc! caryn, which scorcese?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 5/16/14 4:21pm Carmichael:

Nice choice, Caryn. I loathe Rush more intensely than Doug Schulkind loathes Paul Simon. Loathe wars!!
Avatar Fri. 5/16/14 4:21pm Kurt Gottschalk:

oh, all's i said was that rush is awesome because they're canadian.
Avatar Fri. 5/16/14 4:23pm Mark Helsten:

The Rush doc is fascinating actually. I am Canadian though. Not a Rush fan, per sey,... it is just a really well done music doc. I would say the same about some kind of monster (metallica) and the Anvil one though. Judge me on that.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 5/16/14 4:25pm Carmichael:

Now that I think about it, SCTV's parody Wide World of High Voices was more spot on than I knew at the time. Geddy Lee, Neil Young, Slim Whitman, etc ... Although the Bee Gees aren't from Canada.
  Fri. 5/16/14 4:25pm Dean:

@MArk Helston .... that's the spirit! Gotta run KURT GREEEEEAT SHOW!!!!! Love ya!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 5/16/14 4:27pm common:

@ mark: i liked all those docs!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 5/16/14 4:27pm Caryn:

@common: good ol' mob Scorcese (recent Scorcese has been really disappointing to me). But before that, there's also a new British comedy on that I'm going to check out to see if it's any good. Every review I've read has compared it to either Monty Python or League of Gentlemen, so I think my expectations have been raised a little too high, but who knows? It might be alright.
@Mark H: I think the documentary directors are good. I liked their Metal Evolution series. I just doubt the quality of the documentary can make up for my lack of interest in Rush.
Avatar Fri. 5/16/14 4:28pm Kurt Gottschalk:

cya, clay!
  Fri. 5/16/14 4:28pm Dean:

I was thinking Burkhard Stangl, maybe, a detour from Polwechsel. This is pretty spectacular.

Bye friend Caryn!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 5/16/14 4:31pm Caryn:

@common: I wonder if I should blame Scorcese's recent lousiness to his choice of DiCaprio as his "muse". I think both can do great work, but put together, the results tend to always be disappointing.

Departed was good, but that one with Mark Ruffalo (who I love) was complete garbage. shelter island, I believe. blech.

eh, not a patch on the original.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 5/16/14 4:37pm Caryn:

@Mike East: "The Departed" has been the best of their collaborations, but even that was not as good as the Korean original, and thus was disappointing. But the other 3-4 films they've made together? Ugh. Some good acting performances, but generally a big mess.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 5/16/14 4:37pm Mike East:

right, cecile. I'm google impaired apparently.

Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 5/16/14 5:20pm CockTails42:

this mingus piece might be an early example of jaz musicians using the "studio" and overdubbing as compositional devices?
Avatar Fri. 5/16/14 5:22pm Kurt Gottschalk:

right? 1962! what were the beatles doing then, huh?
Avatar Fri. 5/16/14 5:23pm Cecile:

As I learn about music, I understand now why a lot of people disdained rock until it started to grow up a little. I didn't agree with it, but compare Mingus to Patti Page, and well...
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 5/16/14 5:24pm CockTails42:

Mingus had previously edited tape, like on Tijuana Moods and Ah Um but the intent there was simply shortening solos etc.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 5/16/14 5:25pm davex:

Interesting point, Cecile!
Avatar Fri. 5/16/14 5:25pm Kurt Gottschalk:

i love fahey's tape collage stuff as well, although that might be a couple years later.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 5/16/14 5:26pm CockTails42:

safe to say (almost?)no one else in jazz was doing tape collage in 1962….the next example may be RRKirk's Rip Rig and Panic, 1965.
