Diamanda Galás - Faust. Eros. Tod (1982/1988)

Hello Again,

Moved by the astonishing example set by Mutant Sounds (and that of the many other admirable shareblogs), I've decided to post a handful of rarities myself. Interested parties should find these to be sufficiently difficult to obtain.

Please note the word "handful" - maybe 50, tops. We all have other things to do.

Some, as with this first post, have been ripped from albums I own. A large chunk of the series will be comprised of recordings I copied from Rudolf Eb.er's personal archive while rehearsing with OHNE in Aarau, Switzerland in 2002.

(I make no bones of it; Mr. Eb.er's aesthetic judgments have proven exquisite time and again. Bravo, sir!)

There'll be no schedule. I'll upload when I've extra time.

Rapidshare only - no bitching, please. If you find these to your liking, make copies for your friends. Or, find a way to have them legitimately issued, re-released, banned, etc. Just get off your arse and make something happen.
