Sven B. Schreiber (sbs) This is a terrific RIO gem - one of the many published in the 80's by Chris Cutler's label "Rē Records". "News from Babel" emerged from the remains of "Henry Cow", comprising former members Lindsay Cooper (music, woodwind, keyboards), Chris Cutler (lyrics, drums), and Dagmar Krause (vocals), with the addition of Zeena Parkins (harp, accordion). "Letters Home" from 1986 is more song-oriented and less experimental than the band's 1983 debut album "Sirens and Silences / Work Resumed on the Tower", and in my opinion one of the best contributions of composer Lindsay Cooper to the RIO genre. Dagmar Krause appears here on two tracks only, the remaining vocals are performed by Robert Wyatt, Sally Potter, and Phil Minton. Favorite track: Heart Of Stone.
