Partch, Harry - The World of Harry Partch 180 gram vinyl lp (due to size and weight, this price for the USA only. Outside of the USA, the price will be adjusted as needed)

SKU 10-Sony 751492
This was an album that I heard early (it was a high school favorite) and it stressed in my little, developing musical brain the idea of being a successful musical eccentric. Harry Partch lived the life; he invented the theory (43 tones to the octave), wrote the music, built the instruments, trained the musicians and made some really great music. This is his best sounding release that was made during his lifetime - and unfortunately, for me, Partch's works died with him for the most part; if you don't have Harry doing the vocals, you don't have the *real* thing. Originally released on Columbia Masterworks in 1969, this has 3 amazing works, recorded really well. Never available on CD, but this will do just fine, as long as you have a turntable. Personally recommended.
