Limited 180gm audiophile vinyl LP pressing in PVC protective sleeve. The influence Steve Reich had on the contemporary music can hardly be put into words. As one of the great innovators he started playing around with tape loops and created rhythmic and tonal effects while recording the sounds of rain, it formed the basis of his ambitious project called 'It's Gonna Rain'. The great depth and complexity makes this an outstanding song in his repertoire. The A side of the LP contains 'Violin Phase', featuring Paul Zukofsky. This masterpiece in the minimalist music is grand and epic. The two pieces were recorded live together under the title Live/ Electric Music.
