discogs says :

"Part 1, (Side A) 1980-81
Recorded and produced by A Produce at Lantern Enclosures and various venues around Los Angeles.

Part 2, (Side B) 1982-83
B1-3 recorded live at Al's Bar 8/83, B4, 5 recorded at Program Studios, Hollywood.

"Scenes of Redemption" a book of poetry/prose containing the complete text of all the pieces on this tape plus other works was also available separately from Kennedy.

This tape, like all other Trance Port releases, comes packaged in a fold out cardboard sleeve with edition number stamped on it,and insert with release notes enclosed. Packaged by Independent Projects.

Originally released by Trance Port Tapes in 1983, licensed to Calypso Now. Tapes were manufactured in Switzerland with original cover material from the U.S.

How to spot the difference between the original US and the Calypso Now release: The original used tape of ferro quality (light brown), while Calypso Now used chrome tape (very dark brown). Covers were sent from US, numbered."

I own a chrome tape ...

Zero Kama, The Secret Eye Of L.A.Y.L.A.H., Permis de Construire, LP, 1988


“All instruments to be heard on this album were exclusively made from human bones and skulls by the hand of Zero Kama. They never have been used since the time of its recording, which took place at the Secret Temple of Laylah from 5th to 28th of May 1984 e.v. Remixed at Psychonaut Studio Vienna in November 1987 e.v., and dedicated to the symbol of Laylah, meaning night and death, as well as to its numerical equivalent, Oz, a goat or unrestrained sexual force of creation, thus showing the identity of the basic two opposite forces in this generous universe of beauty and strength, in which the Lovers may find ecstasy in Pan.
Who wishes to enter this world of darkness, in which the Great Goat dwelleth, may pass through the sigil of Oz given at the front of this Cover.”

side ZSide O : 1.Death Posture 2.Atavism Dream3.Night of Matter 4.Inoguration of the Pleasure Dome 5.Love Alway Yieldeth 6.Azure-lidded Woman [Pregnant Womb of Non]

Side OSide Z : 7.Hassan I Sabbah 8.Starlit Mire 9.Winged Eye Hadit 10.Love Alway Hardeneth 11.Town of Pyramids [Night of Pan]


Zero Kama was the musical project of Michael DeWitt. This recording had been released on his own label 'Nekrophile Rekords' on cassette in 1984, re-issued by french label 'Permis de Construire' on lp in 1988, on cd in 1991.
