RILEY, TERRY - PERSIAN SURGERY DERVISHES (2LP)


"By the early 70s Riley had come to feel that scores were a distraction. Faithful interpretation of an already written piece was a deviation from the true purpose of making music, which was spiritual quest. Fortunately, some of those live performances, personal journeys towards a state of transcendence, were captured on tape. Persian Surgery Dervishes, issued initially on the French label Shandar, features two such concerts for electric organ and reel-to-reel delay, one recorded in Los Angeles on 18th April 1971, the other in Paris on 24th May 1972." (label info) Comes in gatefold sleeve, with liner notes by Julian Crowley. Edition of 1000 copies
