Ryhs Chatham - An Angel Moves Too Fast To See: Selected Works 1971-1989
Typically great commentary from the top-notch GLOWING RAW blog, so I'll leave the rest up to him,
other than to say that Chatham, along with Branca, formed the baseline that Sonic Youth built from. On second thought, I won't say that . . . because, as much as I love Sonic Youth, such statements only diminish the music of Rhys Chatham. So, do yourself a favor, check out the Glowing Raw blurb, and listen to this album.
