Something about 1975, something of a cusp. That record wouldn't have been the same if made in '74 or '76 (pulled either way by the causal and retrocausal influences of the 60's and 80's).

catching up a bit… I have been arguing that the School of Music here at the U (that is UMN twin cities for you outlander folks) should move away from the Western Canon (were we are B- at best) and move toward music and culture - games etc being the core of my argument. There is a lot of good scholarship and training that we could do not that front.
