"Humbly engaged but never over-determined, Cheap Imitation remains John Cage's most devotional and enduring homage to a lifelong contract between the Maestro of Stony Point and Erik Satie. Composed when he was refused permission to use the arrangement for Satie's "Socrates" as the "accompaniment" to Merce Cunningham's choreography, Cheap Imitation is a tempered, harmonically rich and wryly simple melodic examination. originally released on lp in 1977. includes 32-page booklet with liner notes in italian, french and english."
