The Bomb:


I want to write more about this amazing Terry Riley album...but I don't want to spoil the fun of the first time listening experience. Let me just say that cd 1 of this release is my favorite Terry Riley recording. I hope you enjoy it.

Cd One is a theme that Riley was commissioned to create for a Philadelphia disco night club and is a feast of moog, tape loops, and plunderphonics.

Cd Two is an excerpt from an all-night live concert that Riley was performing on November 17, 1967. This particular concert was attended by the owner of the disco night club who was so impressed that he commissioned the theme heard on cd One. See how it all works out?

I have a few Terry Riley albums; yet these two "tracks" have eluded me. Great to finally have a chance to listen to them.

The RS links are dead too as well. What, it couldn't live for three years? :)
