Hey folks: 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) was made to hum like a frigidaire refrigerator. Amazing stuff, especially the last track "Going Somewhere". One of my all-time favorites. Tons of loops and delay / harmonizer work here, almost hallucinogenic. The perfect soundtrack for a cross-country journey by night (and why not? I used this to travel to Toronto by night from Minneapolis on an all-night roadtrip to see T. Dream once...) Mr. David Torn: Polytown Looping in a power trio context. Heady metal indeed. I saw this band on the tour they did and Dave totally destroyed the concept that effects take the balls and raw edge off your music: his guitar tone was like a molten gold switchblade slicing through my cerebrum. And he actually made his guitar sound like water rushing through sewer piping at one point which made me laugh out loud. A real nice guy, too, as it turns out. Robert Fripp: 1999, Live in Argentina: The first three tracks are some of the most amazingly dense and monolithic yet emotionally affecting music I've heard yet, yet scary in an unknowable way. "The best way I know to make a hell of a lot of noise with one guitar." Indeed. See also "Threnody for Souls in Torment" off the RFSQ CD for the scariest dose of looping on the planet. I won't get into Eno now, though I could go on for a bit. Kiss - Love Gun Just kidding. Megadeth - Loop Bootleg Loops for hours. Also just kidding. I'll shut up now.
