I OD on electronic music pretty quickly, but the old Columbia Lp with that piece really grabbed me. Great, deep bass too. Can stand up to repeated listening.
The challenge was finding lp's with undamaged grooves towards the center; the piece ends with that upward, shrill whistle into infinity.
Inner grooves not a good place for a passage like that!
I loved Octandre from that LP.
SFS has Amériques on American Mavericks, great sounding recording.
That and recent Debussy sound better than (almost) any other orch recording i have.
After hearing SFS's wonderful Adams disc, I'm very interested in the Debussy. I just wish I could download "Parfumes" from Iberia first. It's my favorite mov't but some play it sultry and loose and others play it pretty straight-forward. I prefer the former.
