Cassiber ‎– "Beauty & The Beast" (Rē Records ‎– Re 0110) 1984

  Cassiber's best album,which doesn't sound like an improv Bow Wow Wow, and sounds better than any Heiner Goebbels album. It does have a more “out” version of Robert Wyatt's cover version of Chic's “At Last I am Free”; which is another of my funeral songs (the Wyatt version). I do however like the concept of doing covers of covers,of covers; kinda like musical chinese whispers,where the end version sound nothing at all like the original.
The album, as a whole, is more prog stained avant jazz filtered through Faust and Zappa than is considered healthy for any open mind 'that ain't so open that anything can fall right in'(Magazine 1978).

A1 Six Rays 4:04
