Harry PartchIt's been gratifying to see the increasing number of quadraphonic and other multi-channel recordings from the 1970s that are being reissued in the hybrid SACD format. (Kudos to PentaTone, whose dedication in this area has been exemplary). Since now seems to be the right time for reassessing early explorations of surround-sound, it would be nice to see Sony reissue on SACD the unjustifiably out-of-print four-channel LP, The Music of Harry Partch (Columbia MS 7207), which featured Harry Partch and the Harry Partch Ensemble in hypnotic performances of Castor & Pollux, Barstow, and the spectacular Daphne of the Dunes, delivered with fantastic playing and spacious sound.
