Berio: Sincronie and Laderman: Stanzas [Desto DC7129] an LP released in 1971

Here we have one of the LPs that will be filed under 'Misc 20th Century' at the local used record palace. Because there are two composers (and two different performers), there isn't a handy alternative place to put this. A lot of people pass up that section, but I've found quite a few nice records in that group.

Berio's piece was premiered in 1964 and Laderman's was written in 1959.

Desto was a very interesting small US record label which functioned primarily between 1964 and 1982. 

I certainly hope you will only use this transfer at home, because according to the label, that's why it was manufactured.
