What Year Is This Again?

The calendar says 2008, but the new releases bin says "1970s, baby."  For some reason, a whole bunch of old new music CDs have reached John Schaefer's desk lately and on this New Sounds program, we'll sample some of these recent reissues from the 70s and 80s.

Listen to pianist "Blue" Gene Tyranny's "The Intermediary" along with selections from hard-rocking chamber quartet Birdsongs of the Mesozoic (containing Mission Of Burma's Roger Miller and Martin Swope.)  Their new retrospective - "Dawn of the Cycads"- packages all of the band's 3 recordings for Ace of Hearts.  There's also music from the mid-70's Fripp & Eno, "Evening Star," that has been cleared of its tape hiss.  Plus, music by Terry Riley and more.
