As wonderful as ever, 19 Sep 2010
Like John Shuttle (above) I too bought this on vinyl as a French import. However, I still play my original copy. I have bought many CDs as a convenient alternative to my (extensive) vinyl collection. For some reason I have not followed this route with Mr Riley, somehow the organic feel of vinyl delivers the essence of his music, whereas many of those 12" albums remain in storage (in guest room and off site) I have 'In C'; 'Rainbow in Curved Air'; 'Shri Camel'; 'Happy Ending' (music composed for the film "Les Yeux Fermes" and the title which is the subject of this review 'Persian Surgery Dervishes' to hand in my listening room. As the quality of my music reproduction gear has improved over these many years I keep returning to these albums with never diminishing pleasure; they retain the ability to feed my soul and uplift me in a way that very little other music can.
