Lol Coxhill - Ear Of Beholder 2xLP
Radiation Deluxe Series present a reissue of Lol Coxhill''s Ear Of Beholder, originally released in 1971. Ear Of Beholder is one of the most beguiling and adventurous records of the 1970s, which is saying a lot as that is a musical decade marked by groundbreaking creativity. Originally released on John Peel''s Dandelion label, Lol Coxhill''s sprawling double album debut is an avant-garde jazz masterstroke that features Robert Wyatt and much of the Whole World group, Kevin Ayers''s backing band at the time (of which Lol was a member). Ranging from straight-up feedback to re-workings of standards, outdoor recordings to spoken word, improvisation to vaudeville, Ear Of Beholder covers more ground in two LPs than most artists do in a lifetime. Difficult, adventurous listening from one of British jazz''s most brilliant innovators. 180 gram vinyl; Comes in a gatefold sleeve.
