NOTES

The AGP celebrates its three-year anniversary with a series of transcriptions of the long out-of-print ReR Quarterly, produced by Recommended Records. Released at irregular intervals of no less than three months, the series continued through three volumes of LP releases, before switching to the CD medium for a fourth volume starting in 1994, and then ending in 1997. Each volume except the third consisted of four issues containing a magazine and either an LP or CD of music. A pair of CDs with selected tracks from the first two volumes were released in 1991, but those are now also long out of print. A complete track listing for the series can be found at the wikipedia article on the series.

The tracks in these four installments run the gamut from electroacoustic music to free improvisation to poetry recitation to avant-pop. Many of the artists participated in the protest movements of that time and were devoted partisans of a revolutionary ethos. Most of the tracks were recorded and produced on a shoestring budget, but even so the sound quality is often excellent. And even in the more primitive recordings, the range of timbres explored can be quite striking.

AGP141-144 contain all of the out-of-print tracks from volume 1, issues 1-4. The rest of the tracks from these installments have been released on a sampler CD that is available from ReR Megacorp for a very reasonable price. The LPs trancribed for these installments are excellent pressings in excellent condition, with negligible surface noise or tracking distortion. Included is a PDF file with scans of the pages from the magazine describing the music on the four issues of volume 1.
