Despite being released in 1988, this album still sounds as innovative and inspirational as ever. Plus Bill added two 18+ min epic ambient excursions to this digital release in the form of Lost Roads Orchestral Site and Kingdom Come Ambient Site. This release should be a cornerstone of your Bill Laswell collection. Lance C McGannon
