• NEW REMASTERED 180 GRAM VINYL LP EDITION OF THE CLASSIC AMBIENT EXPERIMENTAL WORK BY THE LEGENDARY TERRY RILEY
• WITH FULLY RESTORED ARTWORK & ILLUSTRATED INNER BAG WITH ESSAY BY SID SMITH
Esoteric Recordings are pleased to announce a new remastered 180 Gram Vinyl LP edition of the wonderful ambient and experimental work by composer Terry Riley, “A Rainbow in Curved Air”.
One of the great modern musical works, Riley composed this influential piece utilising tape loop recording in 1967, performing every instrument himself.
A pioneer of modern music, Riley’s all night performances of his work were ground breaking experimental events and influenced composers such as Philip Glass. Released as an album in 1969, “A Rainbow in Curved Air” brought Riley to a wider rock audience. The British band CURVED AIR took their name from this work and PETE TOWNSHEND of The Who was inspired by Riley’s music to create the seminal songs “Baba O’ Riley” and “Won’t Get Fooled Again”. “A Rainbow in Curved Air” remains a highly influential creation.
This ESOTERIC RECORDINGS 180 gram Vinyl reissue has been remastered from the original tapes and was cut at Abbey Road Studios. It fully restores all original album artwork and features an illustrated inner bag with new essay by Sid Smith.
N.B This title is released 25th May and will not be dispatched before this date.
