Thrift store find here in SF circa 99/2000. I have two more of these that I’ll get up as soon as I can.
If I remember correctly this one is by far the most zonked…..loads of cosmic synth workouts!

    I love those Saturn “mystery” Lp’s…you never knew what you were going to get when you bought them (always after an Arkestra show..)

    Thanks for that one..

    many thanks for this fantastic album – the best among those recorded in 1970 in egypt.i have my own copy for over 30 years, however the sound quality and the quality of lp material isn’t great. however last year, in 2009 circa october, british label art yard re-issued “horizon” on cd with a lot of extra music.
    i am looking for this extra material, but so far without any luck. this is how i found your blog. please continue your excellent free jazz/avant-garde jazz posts as this one and bergman/borgmann/brotzmann – ride into the blue.

    best regards.
