HENRY KAISER Tributes, Vol. 2 (2008)

More rarities from Henry Kaiser spread across many tribute and various artists collections. Also, some choice unreleased nuggets, including an unissued live track from Henry Kaiser's Grooves Of Mystery, a previously unreleased Henry Kaiser Quartet cover of Captain Beefheart's "Alice In Blunderland" (hear it below) and an unreleased Plunderphonics outtake duo with John Oswald. A lot of cool friends and performances, too. You can imagine a fusion of Steely Dan and Mahavishnu Orchestra on "Dance Of The King Of The World of Maya" by HK & PegLeg (Scott Colby, Allen Whitman, John Hanes). There's a Richard Thompson cover by Crazy Backwards Alphabet (HK, John French, Michael Maksymenko, Andy West), and a collaboration with John Schott for The John Fahey Tribute Album. Some of HK's best, if obscure, work.
