Who knows what we might find in there.
Alexander von Schlippenbach 

Good news: www.destination-out.com is now selling complete downloads. In the past, these keepers of avant-jazz’s odd and obscure relics has dolled out free MP3s just a few at a time. Anyone who followed the site closely had to wonder “Where do they find all this crap?”

I still don’t know where they manage to find it, but now they are selling some of these rare and forgotten albums in their store.

As of this writing there only two albums (more to follow), but they are two very curious finds nevertheless. Schlippenbach trio’s Elf Gagatellen features Evan Parker, Alexander von Schlippenbach, and Paul Lovens. Touch the Earth - Break the Sheels features Wadada Leo Smith pitted with Peter Kowald and Gunter Sommer.

Whoah. Good luck finding those at a flea market.
