"The Story of Rip Van Winkle may seem incredible to many, but nevertheless I give it my full belief, for I know the vicinity of our old Dutch settlements to have been very subject to marvellous events and appearances...' In addition to his work on the debut albums by DOT and Misty Dixon, David Tyack follows his solo debut with an album based upon Rip Van Winkle, the short story by Washington Irving. Where Am Deister drew comparisons from Tortoise to Faust, Can and even Debussy, Rip Van Winkle takes its inspiration from a classic work of American fiction. Rip Van Winkle, an idle fellow from the Dutch settlements goes into the Catskill mountains, where he falls into a deep sleep. When he awakes, he finds that those he once knew have passed away, and that his country has undergone major political and social change."
