This was featured in the guidebook "OBSCURE SOUND REVISED EDITION". This is a self-released album by Fredi Alberti, a German cellist who was a member of Pan Ra's first album, an ethnic music project that represented the music of the mythical Atlantis continent. He is a unique artist who is still involved in a number of artistic activities, including installations with his wife, painter Rosi Alberti, in a project called Atelier Alberti, and he has a great talent and sense of style. The first time I saw this, I was very impressed with the quality of the work. A1, in which the primitive rhythms of percussion and the ethnic sounds of stringed instruments take us to the third world; A2, in which the finely plucked cello sounds resonate meditatively; B2, in which the cello and Gibson guitar weave a Can-like krautrock sound; and many others, which are quite psychedelic and the idea is ethnic in nature. The 7-page booklet pasted to the jacket in place of artwork contains collage art drawn on stave paper, which seems to be the concept of each song, and gives a glimpse of how the music itself is linked to the total art. Side A is 45rpm, side B is 33rpm.
This is a dead stock unused item. The sleeve and booklet surfaces have light and fine staining/partial fading due to age. There is a thin scuff caused by the paper inner sleeve. There is a half-beat skip in the first half of A1, but this is similar in all copies and may be due to the master source or the pressing.A1: Untitled
