Baptism of Solitude
EEG turned me on to this album, and waxed somewhat poetically upon the work of mr. Bowles, who is currently an octagenerian (which gives me an excellent excuse to use that word in a sentence). I've put the album in her with the Laswell stuff because Bill does the sonic texture behind Paul's spoken word. I would relate this album in many ways to Dead City Radio by William S. Burroughs, but it has a much more thick and sensuous feel to it. Mr. Bowles' prose is delicious, ranging from inspirational to sinister, very much grounded in the Middle East. Mr. Laswell just puts in his own three cents in subtlety. The disc is available with or without an accompanying booklet, but since I don't have the booklet, I can't tell you what's in it, so caveat emptor.
