This three CD set is of previously released material found on three different albums: One Down, Secret Life, and Into The Outlands. See their individual listings for additional reviews.
One Down was originally released in 1982. The edgy experimentation is very enjoyable to listen to.
Secret Life consists of 12 tracks from 1979 - 1985 and is a great example of Laswell/Material's early work.
Into The Outlands was recorded live in Osaka in 1987 with Shankar, Aiyd Dieng, and Ronald Shannon and consists of two songs each lasting over 20 minutes. You need to love percussion to appreciate these tracks, and I do!
This is a fantastic purchase for Laswell lovers.
