The entire cover: because the image is cover art, a form of product packaging, the entire image is needed to identify the product, properly convey the meaning and branding intended, and avoid tarnishing or misrepresenting the image. Copies made from it will be of inferior quality, unsuitable as artwork on pirate versions or other uses that would compete with the commercial purpose of the original artwork
Bley was a long-time resident of the United States. His music has been described by Ben Ratliff of the New York Times as "deeply original and aesthetically aggressive".
It doesn't seem right to use the term avant garde in relation to a tune as downright pretty as Annette Peacock's "Mr. Joy," which kicks off this often maligned early-'70s Paul Bley effort. Sometimes this term is assigned for life just because it was used at the time of the recording. This philosophy would be one of those concepts in which the actual sound of the music is deemed irrelevant. What it actually sounds like when.
Recorded live by Annette Peacock and Paul Bley on the 6 April 1969, 2 June 1969 and 3 November 1969 at the Philharmonic Hall, Lincoln Center except "Mr. Joy" and "I Belong To A World That's Destroying Itself" which were recorded at Century Sound Studios. The live tracks were mixed by David Baker and Paul Berkowitz, the studio tracks were mixed by Brooks Arthur
