U. S. Highball
(as recorded in 1958)
"Gate 5 Ensemble" of Evanston, Illinois, conducted by Jack McKenzie
The inscriptions that are printed on the cover are from the text of the piece. Since my scanning technique is still in it's infancy, if you can't read them they are as follows, proceeding clockwise from the upper left:
"It's the freights for you, boy!"
"Praise the Lord"
"That's another bad hump this side o' Cheyenne. 'Tsa bitch."
"I can stand everything but the jerks."
"Stay out o' Denver, Mac!"
"May God's richest blessings be upon you"
"Let 'er highball, Engineer!"
"Going east, mister?"
At this point you might want to take a look at "The Garlic Highball", which is our audio-visual mini-documentary on this piece, with a poster, music clip, and spoken commentary from Partch himself.
