NOTES

AGP147 is the second of two featuring the remarkable Polish tuba virtuoso (yes, you heard me), Zdzislaw Piernik. This man makes his elephantine instrument dance in ways I would never have thought possible. The result is in places more like electronic than acoustic music. There is some amazing stuff in both of these installments, so do not miss them.

The LPs transcribed for AGP146 and AGP147 are among the rarest to be included in the AGP--in three decades of foraging for used LPs, I've never seen copies of either of them at any price. They have been provided through the generosity of Mark Ellison. The LPs are both . The LP transcribed for this installment (ISPV 102 on the German ProViva label) is in excellent condition, with only occasional bits of tracking distortion during some of the more explosive attacks.

The installment includes a PDF file with scans of the notes on both LP covers, including a handsome photo of the artist himself.
