An Entropy Service CD, or even several?

I plan to put together several CDs containing performances from Entropy Service's immense original repertoire.

The first CD, "Entropy Service '75 Live!" (CAT-111CD), is now available!

CAT-111CD contains songs recorded at two Boston area performances late in 1975. The band is the later Entropy Service Quartet. The audio quality gets lousy in spots, and there are a few strange noises (you'd almost think it was recorded in a bar or a restaurant) , but the performances are wonderful!

The songs on this recording are:
· If I Could Sing Like Bing
· The Bird Song
· Endless Taxi
· Elizabeth
· When I Take My Sugar To Tea
· Sister Mary
· Wisdom Teeth
· Delayed Gratification (Waiting)
· Nobody In Town Can Bake A Sweet Jellyroll Like Mine
· Highland Road
· Stranger Twice Removed
· Tavern Boogie

To order CAT-111CD send a check or money order made out to Peter Langston for $18 ($15 + $3 packing & postage) to the Entropy Service address below. Be sure to include your postal address.


I also have a few copies of the original Entropy Service EP record (made from genuine vinyl!) complete with the original Entropy Service record cover (a museum-grade art piece in its own right). Send a check or money order for $13 ($10 + $3 packing & postage) made out to Peter Langston to the address below. Make sure you mention the Entropy Service EP and include your postal address.
