Editorial Reviews

Repressing. Two CD release containing both volumes of Morgan Fisher's groundbreaking releases: The first volume released in 1980, followed 20 years later by VOLUME TWO. In '80, overwhelmed with concepts for potential releases, Fisher decided to see how many of these ideas he might be able to squeeze onto just one album. Rather than performing everything himself, he invited 50 musicians he admired to send in tracks of up to one minute in length. They responded with unanimous enthusiasm, and MINIATURES was born out of Morgan's precise editing and sequencing of these tracks, providing a unique snapshot of the cutting-edge music of the period and achieving legendary status amongst those who cherish such creativity and individuality in the process. Featuring artists as diverse as the Residents, Robert Fripp, XTC's Andy Partridge, Pete Seeger, Robert Wyatt and the Pretenders' Martin Chambers, as well as cover artwork contributed by Ralph Steadman, 113 tracks. Cherry Red.

Format: Audio CD
As the producer of Miniatures, I appreciated the great comment from Mr. 50! Your review was regarding a download version, but of course this listing is for the current double-CD version, which includes all the original sleeve notes and more.

The track listing here (as of August 1, 2012) is completely inaccurate - Disk 1 does not have 12 tracks, it has 53 tracks (in 12 groups); Disk 2 does not have 98 tracks, it has 60 tracks. I have informed Amazon. Here is the correct listing:

MINIATURES 1:
1. Ollie Halsall & John Halsey - Bum Love
2. The Residents - We're A Happy Family + Bali Ha'i
3. Roger Mcgough - The Wreck Of The Hesperus
4. Morgan Fisher - Green And Pleasant
5. John Otway - Mine Tonight
6. Pete Challis & Phil Diplock - My Way
7. Robert Wyatt - Rangers In The Nights
8. Stinky Winkles - Opus
9. Mary Longford - Body Language
10. Andy 'Thunderclap' Newman - Andy The Dentist
11. David Bedford - Wagner's Ring In One Minute
12. Fred Frith - The Entire Works Of Henry Cow
13. Maggie Nicols - Look Beneath The Surface
14. Joseph Racaille - Week-End
15. The Work - With Wings Pressed Back
16. Neil Innes & Son - Cum On Feel The Noize
17. Herbert Distel - Toscany In Blue (Last Minute)
18. Lol Coxhill - An End To The Matter
19. Ken Ellis - One Minute In The Life Of Ivan Denisovich
20. Steve Miller - Alice
21. Norman Lovett - John Peel Sings The Blues Badly
22. Patrick Portella - Serrons Nous Les Coudes
23. George Melly - Sounds That Saved My Life
24. Robert Fripp - Miniature
25. Andy Partridge (XTC) - The History Of Rock'n'Roll
26. Phantom Captain - Breather
27. Ron Geesin - Enterbrain Exit
28.

Format: MP3 Music
I am STUNNED to see this wonderful obscurity from 1980 available here. For those unfamiliar with it, a gentleman by the name of Morgan-Fisher invited about 50 creative-types (mostly Brits, but a few American artists such as The Residents and 1/2 Japanese make the cut as well) to submit an audio piece for this compilation; the only stipulation was that the piece should be no longer than 60 seconds in length. From the well-known to the virtually unknown, musicians, composers, visual artists, and performance artists turn in such a wide variety of vignettes that it's impossible to categorize the contents except to say that the results are generally interesting, unusual, and often funny. My favorites are George Melly performing an excerpt from Kurt Scwitters "Ur Sonata" and British art-punk band Metabolist doing an amazing (and much too brief) piece entitled "Racing Poodles".

This comp is highly recommended for anyone into avant-garde spoken-word/music expressionism, but I must offer one caveat here: because this is only available via download, you will miss out on the EXTENSIVE liner notes that accompanied the original vinyl release, and in some cases, those notes provided a crucial context for understanding what the artist was doing (such as in the above-mentioned piece by Melly). For this reason, I can only give this a 4-star rating.
