All Day - York Pop Music Project (1973)

This LP was recorded by Students at York University in 1973.  Some of those involved went on to become highly important and influencial names in experimental music, jazz, contempory classical music, etc... Most notably, perhaps, Trevor Wishart and Steve Beresford. Only 100 copies of this LP were pressed, most copies  being given to those involved and sold to other students at the university, etc.... The style of the music here is very varied, as is the quality, but it's certainly not without historical and musical interest. This was also the first release on the York Electronic Studios label, best known for a couple of Trevor Wishart LPs, but also for the extraordinary (and highly sort-after) 'Electronic Music From York' 3LP box set.  Many of those involved in this LP also contributed to Electronic Music From York set,  and also Trevor Wishart's 'Journey Into Space' LP.
