Notes & Reviews:

"... of its time and still amazingly fresh... like nothing else I've ever heard" is how William Gibson describes The Nude Paper Sermon in the current issue of Signal to Noise. "...[S]imple but touching", "A wonderful piece" on "a wonderful record" is how Helix, Larynx Music and Wiretap are described by Sound Image-A Magazine of Aural and Visual Arts. These classic recordings of some of the most original and innovative works of the twentieth century have now been re-issued by Labor as a 2-CD boxed set.

American Record Guide, March / April 2013
Larynx Music, for voice, guitar, and tape, is a duo for soprano and guitar; Ms Ross does her best Cathy Berberian imitation as she commits vocal pointillism. Queens Collag, beside having a great title, is a found-sound piece composed with what was heard outside a Queens College campus window (Salzman taught there very briefly), along with amusingly interpolated bits of recorded "real" music. This is a work of standard musique concrete localized for the occasion. Anyone with interest in the period will find this release valuable, especially if they were in New York at the time.
