  • About This Album

    This seminal, album-length work from 1970, performed by the young Philip Glass Ensemble, debuted on CD in this 1994 edition. Said Rolling Stone, "Glass' early works have long been cult classics ... Now, they've finally been released on CD—and they've lost none of their raucous power."
