“Title of the album refers to the disappearance of the 331/3 rpm microgroove vinyl/stylus format. This recording was issued in the last days of the LP and was conceived of then as an investigation into the effects (both negative and positive) of “Western” recording technology on the world’s few remaining, at the time of recording, ancient pre-industrial cultures.”

Reissue on CD under the same catalogue number in 1994.

All informations taken from the sleeve and reproduced here are part of the record as a pure conceptual artefact (a man-made object taken as a whole). In fact all recordings were performed and “assembled by” the artist himself and subsequently all other credits mentioned on the text sleeve – also written by Michael Snow – are completely fictional.
