Terry Riley - Poppy Nogood and the Phantom Band All Night Flight Vol.1
Terry Riley and group opening third eyes in a live setting, 1968.
"The live recording of Poppy Nogood and the Phantom Band All Night Flight taken from a 1968 concert titled "Purple Modal Strobe Ecstasy with the Daughters of Destruction" is the perfect trigger for what anthropologist Jean Rouch called 'The Strange Mechanism,' the trance state which most of this decade's electronic music aspires to induce. The immediacy and the spectral filigree--the dervishes summoned during Riley's nocturnal concert--have been faithfully preserved on this CD." - Richard Henderson
