"ESP edition of Albert Ayler's "Bells" LP was a special one that a tune (Bells) was included on A side only, B side had no groove. ONJT + plays 2 version of "Bells". Suddenly the sound of explosion come at us, it seems they emphasize their virile phase of ONJT(+). Albert Ayler's pastoral melody and savage sound of ONJT(+) make exquisitely beautiful contrast. Play it as loud as your audio system and neighbors permit.
