The recorded dreams of Dion McGregor are among the most
remarkable audio artifacts ever. By turns (sometimes simultaneously)
hilarious, bizarre, poignant, macabre and charming, these singular somniloquies
recorded in the '60s by McGregor's songwriting partner and roommate
Michael Barr leave a vivid impression in the mind of the listener.
The Further Somniloquies is the sequel to Dion McGregor Dreams
Again (Tzadik 1999) and The Dream World of Dion McGregor
(Decca 1964). For more information about Dion's life and recordings,
visit the American
Song-Poem Music Archives where you will find a brilliant
biographical account by McGregor archivist Phil Milstein.
