I did a lot of work on these and they are finally coming out after many years of chipping away at the story... LPs dropping in November, digital in the weeks leading up.

Landry is a Louisiana native who co-founded the Philip Glass Ensemble and worked with Laurie Anderson, David Byrne, Robert Wilson, Paul Simon, and many others. These three (or four) LPs grew out of the conceptual/experimental art scene that Landry was a part of in Lower Manhattan upon his arrival there at the tail end of the '60s. They've been woefully out of print for decades and these authorized, remastered reissues (with liner notes by me) are the definitive versions.

A fresh pressing of his LP Fifteen Saxophones, which Unseen Worlds previously released and I also worked on/wrote the essay for, should be out some time in the next year.

So this is three records, right? And David Lee is on two of them?

Correct! One two-LP set and two single LPs. David Lee is on two of the three albums.

Very nice work, these look great. Always regret not trying to stop by his studio in Lafayette all those years I lived there.

Yeah, he definitely would've welcomed your visit!
