The first vinyl reissue of Flow Goes The Universe, released only on CD in 1992 and regarded as one of Laraaji's greatest works!
Born in 1943, New York-based new age/ambient legend Laraaji is still active today.
Born in 1943 in New York City, Laraaji is a living legend of new age/ambient music. After seeing him perform in Washington Square Park, Brian Eno invited him to participate in Ambient 3: Day of Radiance, the third installment of Eno's Ambient series, which was released in 1980.
After that, he has collaborated with various artists such as John Cale (Velvet Underground), Harold Budd, Bill Laswell, Pharaoh Sanders, Haruomi Hosono, Audio Active, etc. He released his masterpiece "Flow Goes The Universe" only on CD in 1992, and this is the first vinyl reissue!
The album was recorded at studio sessions and live concerts in Tokyo, Osaka, New York, and the Lake District in England, and was edited by guitarist Michael Brook, who is known for his collaborations with Brian Eno, Robert Fripp, and David Sylvian.
For this reissue, Stefan Betke, who is also known for his work with Pole, did the cutting for this album, which is regarded as one of Laraaji's best works.
The LP is housed in a gatefold sleeve redesigned by David Coppenhall based on the original design.
The liner notes include a rare interview with Laraji by Andrew Parkes.
