Product Description

From the Label

"Meredith Monk, one of America's most brilliant and unclassifiable theatrical artists...has amazed music composing scores notable for their incantatory ostinatos and for the way she makes herself and other vocalists chant, wail, sigh, moan, exclaim with rapture and call to one another like birds in flight."

4.0 out of 5 stars Vintage Monk December 20, 2004
Format:Audio CD
I first bought this album on an LP issue. It is a fascinating look (listen) at Meredith Monk's early formative years. She was just then perfecting the extended vocal techniques which continue to typify her style. The recording is not the best but the ambience is that of the loft in which it was recorded. This is a must for Monk fans but worth a listen even if you are not a die hard fan.
