Comments: Or maybe another 10 altogether... Also many fine things added from years before including China - The Sonic Avant Garde, Faruq Z. Bey's "Ashirai Pattern", Panicsville's "Imperfection of the Organism," Digital Intervention, Brigitte Fontaine... Hell, we've just added Archie Shepp's "Attica Blues" now in 2005... Too much music, not enough time...
