Richard Reimann - Mouvements

Private Press

Wow!!!! Here we have one of the rarest Swiss record, or rather a box, a beautiful box including one lp and a booklet with several lithographies signed by Richard Reimann.
This box is nearly impossible to find, only 150 pieces were privatly pressed by the artist in 1973. We are offering the n° 130. Just a little number of people aware of this gem, and most of them are from Switzerland.
The good surprise of this box is also the music. The lp contains some incredible tracks from trippy jazz groove, insane drama psych beat coloured by magnetic tape effects, to weird avant garde and outsider progish experiment... Check the soundclip!!!
This object is unique, unclassifiable, impacted by a real odd creativity and rare as hell...
Only few copies are known in Switzerland, that's all!!
Record has just some superficial hairline marks, it plays excellent!!
The booklet is in superb condition, the box shows minor wear on the front cover, otherwise, in solid condition.

Rare lp composed and arranged by Pierre Cavalli. Brass section is lead by Benny Bailey and strings section by Eugene Tiel. The sound engineer is Stephen Sulke!!!! I sell the original Swiss first pressing on Tell Records, much rarer than the italian issue on Joker.
