For Collectors Only. Skip Heller. Boulder Theatre USA. They cited that it would be too expensive to print both covers, and thus only the Amendment version was made available. Over time, and with the popularity of the album, the uncensored cover was released in Canada on CD and Cassette. On April 18, , Rhino Records released a limited edition gram double vinyl version of this album. There are two primary versions of this album both with the different album covers. One with the original album cover and a version with alternate album artwork known as the Amendment Version , which was released on CD, Cassette and Vinyl.
Initial versions of both the original and Amendment versions of this album included the liner notes in a separate booklet titled Novena , a term used in Catholicism for a prayer to be repeated nine times during the day. Ritual de lo Habitual has nine tracks, which is unlikely coincidental. Later versions of this album incorporated the Novena booklet into the regular album packaging and displayed them as traditional liner notes.
Within the booklet is an essay from Perry titled To the Mosquitoes that touches on the album cover controversy. The essay is as follows:. We have more influence over your children than you do, but we love your children. Most of you love them too, very much. Consider them when planning the figure. Oh, mother, father, your blindness to our most blessed gift, NATURE, leaves us with the overwhelming task of correcting your utter mess. It also proves that you are no judge of art, nor of beauty.
We learn from you how to become ideal adults? Or maybe they are too painful to speak about? I used to wish sometimes that I was a black man, I listened to the way black people spoke when they spoke about freedom, justice and human rights. And in the way they spoke, I was sure they were speaking the truth.
At the same time there was a faint buzz spreading to all of us the suggestion that the black man was not to be treated equally. For this I envied the black man because it game him a passion for his living and a cause to die for. Do you have children? Do you see yourself in them yet? Do they do whatever you tell them to, or do they question authority? Do you take the time to explain things to them, or do you blame the rest of the world for their mistakes?
I used to wish sometimes that I was a woman. A woman is the most attractive creature nature has to offer a man. Why then is is such a shame to see her unclothed? I feel more shame as a man watching a quick-mart being built. Despite this early success, Sebastian's father did not want his son to have a musical career and instead encouraged his interests in history and Renaissance art.
Sebastian graduated from Haverford College in and studied abroad in Rome and Florence in preparation for a foreign service career, although he was still interested in the harmonica. On the ship back to the United States, he met and was encouraged by Broadway composers Rodgers and Hart, and some time thereafter decided to make the harmonica his career. Sebastian began his harmonica soloist career in the late s playing nightclubs and cabarets, where his repertoire initially included swing music.
Because very little classical music had been written for the harmonica, Sebastian painstakingly transcribed and adapted suitable works that had been composed for other wind instruments or for violin. Between his club dates, he rehearsed for three hours a day and worked on his transcriptions.
As each new adaptation was complete, he added it to his repertoire, until within a few years, his sets consisted solely of classical music. He refused to compromise by playing "swing" versions of the classics, and even turned down a Hollywood contract because he would not have control over the musical selections he would play. Despite Sebastian's nightclub success, he aspired to perform in a concert setting which his contemporary Larry Adler had already accomplished , and to have the harmonica accepted as a serious instrument by classical music critics and the concert-going public.
In order to achieve his goals, Sebastian had to overcome the prevalent view of a harmonica as a "lowly" instrument with little musical value. Following this breakthrough, Sebastian transitioned from nightclubs to the concert stage. From the s through the s, he toured extensively throughout the U. He performed in a wide range of settings, including appearances with major orchestras, community concerts staged at local churches and high schools, and other stage productions such as a revue produced by Vincent Youmans.
He also frequently appeared on radio, including performances with the NBC Symphony Orchestra and a fourteen-week series of solo programs over the Blue Network, and later on television. The program was billed as his "debut" in a positive New York Times review by critic Ross Parmenter , even though by then he had already performed as a soloist with a number of major orchestras, and in had given a previous recital at the Town Hall with Virgil Thomson and Leonard Bernstein.
Parmenter noted that Sebastian, rather than trying to hide the fact that the harmonica was a "small-toned" instrument, made its sound "smaller than need be by the way he envelops it in his hands" and that he worked for "subtlety and poetry within a small dynamic range. In , Sebastian was one of five American musicians invited to visit West Germany as guests of the Federal Republic of Germany; this marked the first time a foreign government had acted as host to American artists. He toured internationally throughout the s and s, including appearances in Europe as well as the Far East and Africa.
He appeared not only in major cities such as Seoul and Tokyo, but also in less traveled areas such as Okayama, Japan, where he was enthusiastically welcomed by children studying harmonica as part of a program to re-establish music education in local schools. Sebastian, who was self-taught, studied and incorporated techniques used by wind instrument players in many ethnic traditions, in particular learning from Mexican pipe players how to hold air in his cheeks, and practicing yoga to improve his breathing technique.
He also drew from the works of impressionists such as Debussy and Ravel , thinking them "ideal" for transposition to the harmonica. He avoided the works of romantic music composers such as Schumann , Brahms and Chopin because he felt that "[the harmonica] does not have the lush, sentimental tone that is so necessary in 'romantic music'.
The harmonica can be plaintive, pastoral, ascetic, gay, whimsical— but never 'romantic' in the true sense of the word. I have therefore kept to the wealth of music I believe better suited to the instrument. Durand claimed that it "would never authorize a performance for the harmonica," even though it had previously authorized harmonicist Larry Adler to record Debussy's "Clair de Lune".Vinyl Rarity With Insert And Still In Shrink Wrap.
