There seems to be a misprint on the site regarding the two Harry Partch pieces. There is a work entitled “Ring around the Moon” in several phrases, not “Ring aound the World.” Not incredibly informative, but interesting, as this CD should also be.

Sounds like a money-spinning racket to me – good collection of songs though.

I want to thank the English man who will recognize himself for sending the 1985, Oct 27, Göteborg, Konserthuset…
Great show indeed.

Still it’s true the poor sound quality sucks a bit, but as U. Utah Philips would say: It’s good, though!

The version of $29.00 is particularly cool…
