I agree, Mark. That's kind of lame for any label, much less one like ECM. I guess this is their version of a minimal frills, mid-line priced album.

You've got me curious about this guy, and I am wondering what I should get for the first one, and where to get his albums. (it is funny to see all the different responses when one asks the "if I only get one album, which should it be" question...)
The Threshold of Silence (Umbra compilation): awesome spacemusic w/lots of guitar drones courtesy SiF, A. Baker, P. Bradley, Troum, etc. Glad I snagged one of the last copies from El Hypnos Store.
I've reccommended it before in the past but you should really check out his 3" on Locus Of Assemblage "Birds Are Smart But They Cannot Speak." I haven't heard to many people respond to this release but perhaps Forrest could comment on it if he has it?
As a teen I first read about Glass' "North Star" in a Rolling Stone book of reviews from '79. However I never subsequently saw or heard it despite being exposed to many other of his works (and later photographing him after a lecture!) It seems to have slipped off the radar. How do they compare?
