What our staff has to say: “Wild one recorded in Indiana from a former Cincinnatian. Originally released in 1973, but in this case utilizing the art used on its 1976 reissue. Birchall came from a classical background, which the initial art maybe more aligns with, but this record (as hinted by the reissue art) more so aligns with the private press synth music coming out at the time, similar to someone like Nik Raicevic. Rules.” – Jon
Reissue, originally released in 1976. Soave dusts off in limited edition the psych/synth album by Doctor Steven T. Birchall recorded in 1973 in Indiana, U.S.A. with the following equipment: VCS-3 (The Putney) by EMS, Ampex MM-1000 16 trk, dbx noise reduction, SpectrasSonics Console, Studer A80 Recorder, Eventide Clockworks, Instant Phaser, Cooper Time Cube, EMT Reverb. The absolutely penetrating high tones of the opening track “Music Of The Spheres” announces that you are on board. Perhaps its best to say in the mind of Birchall who aims to go beyond those “normal” boundaries that can be called reality. It is a new world of music that still amazes after half a century. A higher stage of truth projected into the cosmos. Cover art by Earl. E. Hokens. Edition of 400.
