The first ever reissue of Dorothy Carter's 1978 folk/psych/drone masterpiece. A truly unique album, Waillee Waillee's essence sits in Dorothy's mastery of the dulcimer; it's shimmering notes fully enmeshed with the cavernous drones of Bob Rutman's bowed steel cello. The core of this album, Dorothy's only with a full band, lies in the contradiction of traditional psych-folk idioms and the minimal avant-garde, referencing Laraaji and Henry Flynt as much as Karen Dalton. The master tapes for this recording were fortuitously discovered in Rutman's Berlin studio, many, many years later. Remastered by Jeff Lipton at Peerless mastering, the LP version is packaged in a tip-on jacket and includes a 12 page booklet with unpublished manuscripts, drawings, photographs, and sheet music of the songs from the album, as well as extended liner notes from friends and family of Dorothy Carter, including notable musicians such as Laraaji, Bob Rutman, and Alexander Hacke (of Einstürzende Neubauten).
