1973 Debut Album on Vinyl LP!

The debut album by the Pyramids was inspired by the group's visit to the Lalibela monastery in Egypt and was recorded in Yellow Springs, Ohio in early 1973. Drawing on the teachings of Cecil Taylor and the influence of John Coltrane, combined with a barrage of intense percussion, the album evolves over several long-form pieces.

Initially only 500 copies were pressed and sold to friends and followers in the local area.
