This was the first US issue of the album that was originally released in the UK in 1974.
All the sounds were made with the instruments listed above; however, in parts of Ruins and Linguaphonie, the bassoon, alto, voice and drums were recorded at half or double speed.
Bittern Storm over Ulm acknowledges its debt to O. Rasputin’s ‘Got to Hurry’ by the Yardbirds.
For many things other than the record we would like to thank Charles Fletcher, Jack Balchin, D.J. Perry, Ray Smith, Lol Coxhill, Henk Weltevreden and Geoff Leigh.
Recorded at the Manor Feb./Mar. 1974.
Dedicated to Robert Wyatt and Uli Trepte.
