DIGIPACK EDITION

"Karyobin" is a crucially important album in the history and development of freely improvised music. Originally studio-recorded in February 1968 and issued as an Island Records LP later that year, it was remastered and re-released on CD by Chronoscope in 1993. Fine as the music was, both of those issues suffered from less than ideal sound balance, particularly of the bass and drums. Now, just in time for the fiftieth anniversary of the album's recording, Evan Parker's favourite sound engineer, Adam Skeaping, has worked his magic and corrected the balance. In addition, Martin Davidson has removed unwanted clicks and noises—including one caused by Yoko Ono ringing the studio's doorbell! The end result is that the album sounds far better than ever before.
