“The artists alone decide what you will hear on their ESP-Disk."

And, for a limited time, you can get those sounds cheaper...with the ESP-disk Summer Sale, which runs through Monday, August 9th. Includes the Albert Ayler "Holy Ghost" box set, nine CDs plus book, for $40.00, a slew of CDs for $6.50 and $9.00, even some vintage vinyl (I almost wrote "even a seal" from the 70s commercial for the clothing stud kit: "Seven free patterens; patterens like owl, mushroom, star, guitar, male-female symbol, even a seal!" Yes, the announcer couldn't pronounce 'patterns'...)

(From Alan Roth's "Inside Out In The Open," an hour-long documentary on DVD, included in the sale)
