Harry Partch: Enclosure 7
I ordered it at Amazon but it was "Usually ships within 1 to 3 weeks." I hope it will arrive. Many items of Enclosure series are already out of print ...

There's a new Partch album announced:
 
Plectra and Percussion Dances

An Evening of Dance Theater
 • 1-8) Castor & Pollux (14:58) A Dance for the Twin Rhythms of Gemini
 • 9-12) Ring Around the Moon (9:20) A Dance Fantasm for Here and Now
 • 13-20) Even Wild Horses (24:03) Dance Music for an Absent Drama

This new recording marks the first complete performance of Harry Partch’s major cycle in three parts, Plectra and Percussion Dances. On the original 1953 recording, Castor & Pollux, was missing three movements, and the finale, Even Wild Horses, was missing its tenor saxophone part.
 
The virtuosi of Partch give us revelatory interpretations of these stunningly original scores. Also included is a 7 minute spoken introduction, given by the composer in 1953 on the occasion of the broadcast premiere of this work.

I’ve become completely addicted to this

It’s early Partch, he made a recording with poor sound, this one seems more satisfying to me.
