Notes & Reviews:

An unprecedented collection of recordings charting the earliest years of one of the world's most personal and exciting renaissance women-composer, singer, performance artist, playwright, film director, auteur and visual artist Meredith Monk. From her very first solo vocal performance in 1965, and her remarkable duo recordings with Don Preston through to her songs and ensemble performances from the mid 1970's, this compilation brings together Meredith at her edgy, surprising and exploratory best. Meticulously chosen by Meredith from her personal archives, this is a fascinating document of music that was to open up a whole new world to several generations of forward-looking musicians.
