New remastered 180 gram vinyl lp edition, with fully restored artwork & illustrated inner bag with essay by Sid Smith.

A pioneer of modern music, Riley’s all night performances of his work were ground breaking experimental events and influenced composers such as Philip Glass. Released as an album in 1969, “A Rainbow in Curved Air” brought Riley to a wider rock audience. The British band CURVED AIR took their name from this work and PETE TOWNSHEND of The Who was inspired by Riley’s music to create the seminal songs “Baba O’ Riley” and “Won’t Get Fooled Again”. “A Rainbow in Curved Air” remains a highly influential creation. This ESOTERIC RECORDINGS 180 gram Vinyl reissue has been remastered from the original tapes and was cut at Abbey Road Studios. It fully restores all original album artwork and features an illustrated inner bag with new essay by Sid Smith.
