VCSR - Tape #4 vinyl lp (due to size and weight, this price for the USA only. Outside of the USA, the price will be adjusted as needed)

Really, all you need to see to know you want this is the front cover, color 'snapshot' from the late 70s of 4 bearded guys facing each other with their mounds of analog gear and a certain segment of our vinyl-buying public will want this for sure. Vinyl only; no CD release known or planned.

"For fans of: Klaus Schulze, Popol Vuh, Cluster, Bitchin Bajas and kosmische musik from the back catalogs of Ohr, Sky and Brain. Never before released archival material from Chicago's answer to Germany's 70s kosmische/electronic scene!"

'VCSR existed between 1978 and 1984. They weren't a band or a group so much as it was a collective. They never had an official release but recorded over 60 reels of tape from which cassettes were mixed down for their own use or to give to friends. They were to be the first record on the Waxx Traxx label with Al Jourgenson producing but that never came to be.
Tape #4 is one of these raw reels recorded in 1979 and 1980. There are overdubs but no edits or redos, it was live onto tape and then maybe a second pass to add leads, etc. Many of the reels are live onto one track only. This was done before they had a mixer. Most of these reels are now in Washington state and some are here in Chicago and some are not accounted for. Instruments used: Arp-2600, Korg MS-20, Rhythm Ace, Yamaha & Farfisa organs, guitar, ElectroComp synthesizers and various other keyboards and effects'"-Bil Vermette.
