This fantastic find has been unearthed from the vast personal archive collection of a former journalist who wrote the society and music review pages for the News Of The World throughout the sixties and seventies. It is now highly sought after...
Basil's name was included on Nurse With Wound's infamous 'list' [available with original copies of their first LP] and subsequently became a collectable artist for fans of underground music and the avant-garde... if they could only find the records! Now's your chance to own his rarest LP.

Basil's name is now familiar with those interested in the pre-history of British electronic and experimental music. His music has recently been documented and re-released by Trunk Records, albeit in a form much truer to his original vision, under the title Quantum.
Hampered by record company interference, his music was decades ahead of its time and as such it is only with the musical landscape of today that it can start to be appreciated.

Worlds Within Worlds [Parts I & II] is his first concept album, having abandoned earlier work with his big band. It is a British commercially released LP like no other before it, a truly unique effort. Basil's spiritual and philosophical motivation for creating sound had no match in Britain outside of academys and universities which specialised in electro-acoustic music at the time.

Worlds Within Worlds essentially combines traditional instruments with wildlife sounds and the amplified noise of insects, in what one would be inclined to call a 'musique concrete' avant-garde style. Tape is painstakingly spliced, edited, looped and manipulated to create a whole new world of utterly alien yet beautiful soundscapes. In hindsight, these sounds now clearly anticipate the subsequent ambient experiments of Brian Eno [who writes the sleeve notes for its follow-up Worlds Within Worlds 3/4], as well as a generation of today's electronic artists such as Aphex Twin.

Recorded in Denham (UK), July 1971

Basil Kirchin: arranger, orchestrator, producer
Unconfirmed line-up: Evan Parker: soprano; Derek Bailey: guitar; Frank Ricotti: marimba, organ.

Sleeve condition:
The front laminated picture sleeve has some slight 'foxing' and age spots evident only to its edges. It otherwise easily qualifies for an EX+ grade with a perfectly legible spine, secure flipbacks and a bright and vivid print with no fading or blemishes to the text.

Vinyl condition:
The vinyl is housed in a period EMI catalogue inner, with unmarked and clean boxed EMI Columbia labels, FACTORY SAMPLE stickered to one side for promotional use. It is in perfect MINT condition; visually there is nothing to suggest this record has been played more than once, if that!

A real holy-grail for the adventurous music fan and record collector. Do not miss!
Condition : This item is in Excellent condition or better (unless it says otherwise in the above description). We buy items as close to Mint condition as possible and many will be unplayed and as close to new as you could hope to find.
