201. An Die Prinzessin Die Aus Dem Maulbeerbaum Geboren Wurde
202. Der Todeskampf Am Maderospatch

Guitar, Voice – Masayuki Takayanagi (tracks: 2-1)
Piano – Masahiko Sato* (tracks: 2-2)

Recorded on January 16, 1976 at Nichi-Futsu Kaikan, Tokyo. Concert produced by Teruto Soejima, Keiki Midorikawa
"Beyond description", 4th date of 'Inspiration & Power vol.2'.

The original LP of this work was a duo with Takayanagi on A side and a duo with Sato on B side. But in the actual concert Midorikawa played a duo with Togashi about 40 minutes, and afterward he played a duo with Takayanagi and with Sato both about 20 minutes. The original LP didn't include the Togashi duo on, but Doubtmusic found a tape of Midorikawa - Togashi duo, and this 2CD set conveys all the performances that day as a complete version on a different tape, which was re-mastered, so the quality on this set is higher than the original LP.

Midorikawa's free improvisation that playing duo with each Togashi, Takayanagi, Sato is inventive and in consequence, each music is very beautiful. Those music are prime free-jazz that quietness and intensity seem like spindrift
