“Long the only known compositions of their kind, the Ravenglass series has for several years been the object of one of the most intensive research efforts ever made by occultists and outsider musicologists. Recently this research uncovered one more such compilation. A deranged and unsophisticated music, made by a man at the end of his rope, ‘Mind at the End of Its Tether’ is unconventional in form, consisting of entries and notes recorded in the margins of newspapers, on the backs of used envelopes, on train tickets, library slips, blank telegram forms, so that the effect is vague, scattered, confused, bewildering."—Sacred Phrases
