Subject: RE: E-Music Recommendations

From: "David Bivins" <david@...

Call "Other Music" in NYC. They actually have a web site too:

They always have copies of Subotnick, etc. on vinyl, and they are very much
into experimental electronic music--both popular and obscure. They carry
many tiny labels, so you're bound to find something interesting. Be
careful--some of the employees are much less intelligent than others. I mean
to the point where you ask them about a record that's in their hands at the
moment and they say "Uh, I don't think we carry that." Um, right. Other
employees have excellent recommendations.
