This is what I meant in my piece on Don Cherry. His openness to look for new things, has often lead to abuse of his name for the sake of selling impopular music.
This reissue on CD brings us electronic music of the early days, which is more technology-driven than musically inspired. The only thing I hear are blips and squeacks and whooshes and peeps. It is unclear where the contribution of Appleton ends the one of Cherry begins, but it is in any case not really succesful.
