The three albums that Bobby Brown shared between 1972 and 1982 are known quantities inside and out of private press collector circles. In part because the albums (particularly his first, The Enlightening Beam of Axonda) are not extraordinarily uncommon, in part because the music each contains covers an emotional and spiritual terrain that is quite simply alien or otherworldly.
RVNG is ecstatic to share a new communication from Bobby with The Enlightening Beam of Bobby Brown. Available in limited edition cassette and art book, the Beam features a recording of Bobby and RVNG’s Matt Werth’s exchange at last year’s multi-dimensional residency in Berkeley, California, The Possible, along with original compositions from Kaitlyn Aurelia Smith and Austin Cesear performed and recorded on that same day.
Bobby will perform in NYC for the first time ever tonight — Tuesday, October 6 — at Commend (172 Forsyth). Entry and green tea are free.
