Artist Track Album Label Comments Special
 
Set 1: the old radio show portion of the evening. (Listen to this set: )
The Haunting Hour  Murder Wears A Strange Mask   Options Originally broadcast sometime from 1944 - 1946 - probably 1945.  (no label)  We don't know what year it was originally aired, the exact date of the show, or even who was in any of the episodes -- no records were ever kept.

This episode: an innocent couple goes to a masquerade ball -- where Death just happens to be a guest.

Woman: "Oooooh, you must be a real magician!"
Death: "Yes, madam, I'm a successful stockbroker -- same thing."
 
 
 
 
Mic break between Sets 1 & 2. Background music played during it: (Listen to this set: )
Les Chakachas  Love is like a Violin (track 4)   Options Arriba!  RCA International  Phat, sentimental sound. Feels like it's the slow song at the record hop.   
 
 
Set 2: inside the temple of Terry Riley: live at Theatre Edouard VII 10 November 1978. (Listen to this set: )
Terry Riley  (untitled) (track 1) (Listen: )   Options The Last Camel In Paris  Elision Fields  We hear the entire live concert - a live interpretation / reinterpretation of his work Sri Camel. Notes apply to the entire work: quiet start, then gradually gets under way and we find we're inside the temple of Terry Riley...stately and warmly trance-like, even psychedelic, best at low to moderate volume.

A good write-up is found here.

Les Chakachas  Love is like a Violin (track 4)   Options Arriba!  RCA International  Phat, sentimental sound. Feels like it's the slow song at the record hop.   
 
 
Set 3: from deep, quiet & rumbly to psych - but at least it takes almost an hour. (Listen to this set: )
Oren Ambarchi  Fever, A Warm Poison (track 1) (Listen: )   Options In The Pendulum's Embrace  Southern Lord  Very spare and slow, slow and deep tones vary over time, occasional guitar, best on CD.   
Roy Montgomery  Lazy Boy (treatment) (CD 2, track 4) (Listen: )   Options Inroads: New And Collected Works  Rebis  Dark and quiet synth fades up to slow and heavy music.   
Earth  Engine Of Ruin (track 4) (Listen: )   Options The Bee Made Honey In The Lion's Skull  Southern Lord  Dark-ish but also golden chords, western feel at times.   
Yellow 6  You Can't Be Everywhere He Said (Edit) (track 19) (Listen: )   Options The Wire Tapper #19  The Wire  Delicate and warm, instrumental, psych / rock ballad, almost like The Lost Patrol. The CD was included with The Wire magazine.   
Spacious Mind  Distant, Oh So Far...Better Go Right Away (track 1, faded up at -17:30) (Listen: )   Options Pickin' Berries 'N' Playin' Blues  Goddamn I'm A Countryman  Calm and warm psych rock with more active periods. From a concert recorded live at Trastock July 23, 2006.   
Scenic  The Spheres (track 8) (Listen: )   Options The Acid Gospel Experience  Hidden Agenda  Easy and warm psych rock with a big and resonant sound, even a romantic feel, also reminds me of The Lost Patrol, magnificent.  ***

Les Chakachas  Love is like a Violin (track 4)   Options Arriba!  RCA International  Phat, sentimental sound. Feels like it's the slow song at the record hop.   
 
 
Set 4: quiet, airy, and quiet. (Listen to this set: )
Musicians of Sekolas Tinggi Seni Indonesia  Ketawang Puspa Warna (track 6) (Listen: )   Options Gamelan Of Central Java III: Modes And Timbres  Felmay  Delicate, relaxing, warm, light and airy, religious.   
Machinefabriek  Porselein (track 1) (Listen: )   Options Dauw  Dekorder  Quiet, soft but with sharp plucked string, slow, airy.   
Grouper  Wind And Snow (track 10) (Listen: )   Options Dragging A Dead Deer Up A Hill  Type  Back to old Grouper sound, instrumental, slow, fairly spare, beautiful in its way.  ***  
 
 
End of show mic break. Background music played during it: (Listen to this set: )
