Witold Lutoslawski - Trois Poèmes D'Henri Michaux (1966)

Continuing with our series of recommendations, rarities, bonfire musts, etc.

Heard this in 1980 - Mike Green (Boat Of, Miss High Heel, mid-70s Fans, Wyfe, Her Hair Jelly, etc.) had the album vouchsafed in his peerless archive. (Prob. even better than Eb.er's.)

One listen, and socks were blown off. Feet badly burned. Neurons fused...
