Monumental masterpiece in the minimal / experimental, scrap that, entire musical canon since day dot, Terry Riley's '71 LP A Rainbow In Curved Air. Terry's visionary use of overdubbing, infused with his love of Indian raga (and psychedelics) created a potent, mind-expanding voyage through rapid-fire organ patterns created a work that has sent cataclysmic shockwaves through culture and music ever-since. I'll resist my strong fan boy urge to endlessly go on about this one. That cover too. HUGE. (UK press, Vinyl + Sleeve VG++).
