La Monte Young - voice, sine waves
Marian Zazeela - voice
Jon Hassell - trumpet
Garrett List - trombone

Just started listening to it. Mesmerizing.

Since The Well-Tuned Piano has gotten so rare and pricey, here's a good alternative: Terry Riley's The Harp of New Albion. I see the works as being similar in that they both used alternately-tuned pianos.

True, but they're different tunings. La Monte's piano was modified, each key has only one string.

There is a free recording of WTP available as a podcast. It's called "no such program." I was able to download this podcast as an MP3. Not the best format I know. But I listen to it frequently.

We are happy to announce that this edition contains a 52-page booklet, which includes La Monte and Marian’s essays on their works and a major essay by their senior disciple Jung Hee Choi.
