In late 1974, India Navigation label owner Bob Cummins set up microphones in a New York City building’s storefront, documenting two short sets by the band with no alternate takes or additional cuts. These recordings became Alan Braufman’s debut album Valley of Search. Valley of Search has enjoyed a cult status and captures a unique and very alive historical slice of New York’s creative improvised underground.
