Excellent compilation LP with works by LA avant-garde composer John Lafia. Gatefold edition of 400 copies. Active in Los Angeles' 1980-1986 underground music scene, John Lafia is best known for the hypnotic album 'Prayers', released through Barry Craig's influential, cassette-only label Trance Port Tapes. 'Life Is Short', 'A Promise', 'Dream', 'Hidden Things', 'Spaghetti Western', and 'Escape' come from that release. This compilation also features tracks from subsequent Trance Port releases: 'Queen Of The Nile' from 'LA Mantra II' and 'The Moth' form 'Phantom Takes'. John's 'Odyssey Girls' appeared on the seminal 1983 spoken word LP 'English As A Second Language'. 'The Confession,' a collaboration with legendary producer Ethan James, was released on 1986's LP 'Voices From North America'. While recording this music, Hollywood-based John also dreamt of making his own films.
