Liner, Listening & Album Notes:

A mix of spoken word (Yvette Mimieux) and tabla playing (Ustad Ali Akbar Khan). Hypnotic & intriguing.

Also listed as “Baudelaire’s Flowers Of Evil,” the vinyl version tracks are combined (instead of these “Pt.1” and “Pt.2” divisions from the digital/CD version of the album).
