Editorial Reviews

Utilised in genres as disparate as modern and traditional classical, folk, techno, Chicago blues and even heavy metal, the repetition of a single note or chord of fixed pitch - otherwise referred to as a 'drone' - serving as permanent focus in a given opus, has graced as many compositions as it has influenced others. This compilation serves as a much anticipated but never before compiled guidebook to the finest examples of the use of drone throughout the age of magnetic tape, albeit in forms outside those loosely labeled 'modern music'.

By Charles Horton on March 12, 2013
Format: Audio CD
An absolutely amazing and totally absorbing project. Obviously a labor of love for the compilation producers, unfortunately not identified.

The attention of focus on the rather obtuse subject matter and the terrific choice of incredibly diverse material makes for the most interesting and culturally complex (in the best sense) album set I've ever come across.
Attention never broke through the 2CDs.

Growing up in the 60's & 70's, I was familiar with many artists and music contained herein, but many not - especially the fascinating older recordings. My 17-year-old son was equally involved in listening and loved hearing the origins that so influenced later bands of which he is familiar.

Great liner notes by Alan Clayson (compiler?), who makes a compelling case for the Roots of Drone music picks.

All in All, a superb and eye-opening collection. Highly recommended.

Great comp although I don't understand why Edie Sedgwick is on the cover. And buying an MP3 of 4'33" by John Cage seems like a ripoff. I can make my own blank MP3, right?
