Though Recommended Records stopped pressing vinyl decades ago, they've released this limited edition beautifully packaged LP of electroacoustic improv with Dimuzio, Cutler, Frith and Custer.

Cutler, Chris / Thomas Dimuzio / Fred Frith
Golden State - 12" Vinyl LP - Gold Vinyl

Cutler, Chris / Thomas Dimuzio / Fred Frith: Golden State   - 12
Label: Recommended Records    
Released in: Great Britain    

"This is a Limited Edition of 1969 numbered copies, pressed into 180 gm virgin vinyl and rather extravagantly packaged. The music was recorded in California in 1999 with guest Beth Custer (clarinet) on one track and carefully mastered by Tom Dimuzio in wide frequency, solid footprint, broad compass stereo. Though we waved goodbye to vinyl decades ago, we felt this release was made to be an LP - a CD just wouldn't be the same, sonically, visually or ontologically. And of course we took advantage of the exaggerated dimensions and physicality to make it a thing visually to savour. Off the groove, Dimuzio, Cutler, Frith and Custer do what they do and you get a ringside seat."-Recommended Records
