Here's some of the recordings that got me into looping big time:
Steve Tibbets: Safe Journey
The only recording I've ever heard where an electric guitar (or acoustic)
made to hum like a frigidaire refrigerator. Amazing stuff, especially the
track "Going Somewhere". One of my all-time favorites. Tons of loops and
delay / harmonizer work here, almost hallucinogenic. The perfect
