Alice B TOKLAS

Can anyone shed some lights on this record where Robert Rich is credited? Do you think this the same Robert Rich? It does sound in his older style...
If you enlarge the pic, you'll see his name on the cover with a sound sample...

According to Discogs, Alice B Toklas is the label, Dimension 16 is the catalog number, 1979 Foundation For The Black Arts is the artist, the track is "The Other Side of Twilight," and Robert Rich is credited with having written the track.

There is a track "The Other Side of Twilight" on Robert's album Numena which you may have seen as Numena/Geometry when it was reissued by Hearts of Space.

Either this is an artist (1979 Foundation For The Black Arts) covering Robert's track, or else 1979 Foundation For The Black Arts is some weird venture Robert took part in, in which he was credited as part of that group name.  I don't know but I'm guessing the former (a cover of Robert's track)

I actually own a copy of Numena, which i haven't played for a long time. It is in the cd player right now and sure enough the opening track "The other side of Twilight" is the same track. Very nice !!
I suppose that's a chance to own a version on vynil to compare :) Still a rather odd and interesting edition....
