Jon Gibson – Two Solo Pieces


Jon Gibson
Two Solo Pieces
Chatham Square Productions, 1977 LP

Side A. Cycles (1973) – 22:49

Included in a relatively recent collective post on John Davis’ Tonal Bride, this achingly beautiful LP deserves its own post. Side A, ‘Cycles’ alone… ah nevermind, this sums it up.

    I think there might be a problem on side B. track. It cuts off after about 6-7 minutes. Thanks again for an amazing site.

    Cloaks covering Jon Gibson ?
    What’s that about …

    I was looking at the reissue CD information, and then saw that the cover is cropped. The off-white border with the script on it is gone from the original vinyl issue. The new artwork looks more like something Jason Kahn would release on his Cut label …

    The printing and media look the same too !

    As for the Cloaks cover job, Jefre posted the track back in September:
