This fascinating – and extraordinarily rare – 2LP set from Melos (MLP 6001, US pressing, blue labels, mono) features the only commercial recordings, pressed in very limited numbers, of the enigmatic pianist Allen Tanner (1898-1987), who enjoyed a prominent career in Europe between the World Wars and who was the lover of the Russian artist Pavel Tchelitchew, whose portrait of Tanner graces the cover, and later of the poet Charles Henri Ford. These remarkable recordings were made in New York City circa 1967 and have never been re-issued in any format.
