The 1971 and 1972 masterpieces, which span Cooper's song-based and improvisation-based styles of the early 1970s, are presented for the very first time as the definitive double album, as Cooper originally intended them to be released. These historic sessions veer from the impeccable conceptual folk-rock artistry of "Places I Know" to the utterly singular, long-form "songmaking" deconstructions of the more radical "The Machine Gun Co." "Gorgeous, tender, moving… a work of art that experimented with the idea of music being one vast universe with song being its poetic and foundational heart--Cooper's greatest musical achievement." - Thom Jurek, Allmusic
