Firstly,it is wonderful that some of Connors' earlier pieces are being made available again and,hopefully,to a wider audience.
He has always stubbornly ploughed his own furrow with truly idiosyncratic results.
A bit like Derek Bailey,he seems to treat the guitar as a 'found object',discovering new approaches to its sound-making function.
I think these pieces are exquisite,but judge for yourself. I think Blind Willie McTell would have understood the impulses behind these pieces and I will look at Rothko's dark paintings with a fresh perspective.
