This unique collaboration was originally released in 1971 and saw Cale (fresh from his ground-breaking work as a member of the Velvet Underground and now finding his feet as a solo artist) and Riley (noted for his highly influential works “In C” and “A Rainbow in Curved Air”) create a work of atmosphere and uniqueness. All instrumental, with the exception of the song “The Soul of Patrick Lee”, “Church of Anthrax” was the perfect melding of the experimental genius of two unique musicians. Hard to categorise, the album was recorded a year prior to its release by Columbia in February 1971 and actually preceded Cale’s first solo album.
This Esoteric Recordings release has been newly re- mastered and features a booklet that fully restores the original album artwork and includes a new essay.
