About this Item

The scarce La Monte Young reel-to-reel tape of which a handful exist, as it was withdrawn after the first few dozen subscribers were sent theirs. Young produced this hour-long original tape composition, which was to be played at 71/2 ips (inches per second) as meant or slower or faster. As one of the first dozen subscribers this one arrived, as did apparently a dozen or two more, but less than forty were produced and Young then withdrew permission suddenly. Another story has it that forty were originally made but a box of 25 were found dumped in the rain in Canal Street, at which point further production was stopped by the composer. Blindstamped with LMY’s name at head of tape, this is crucial. contained in original Marian Zazeela-designed box with her offst litho drawing and titling inside box cover, but without the blue drawing on acetate which functioned as quasi dustjacket,but which didnt come with this as it was one of the first twelve subscriptions, according to the editors on the phone (in 1968).
