"'The Raybeats went into Green St. Recording on June 4, 1982 with Philip Glass, Michael Riesman, and Kurt Munkacsi without really knowing what to expect. We wouldn't know what we had until thirty years later.' So begins the liner notes to The Lost Philip Glass Sessions, a set of seven songs by the instrumental neo-surf rock combo from New York City that arose from the no wave musical scene. The Raybeats' original line-up consisted of Don Christensen (drums), Jody Harris (guitar), Pat Irwin (guitar, saxophone, organ) and George Scott III (bass). New York City in the late-1970s and early 1980s was a place where the cross pollination of very different artistic streams was limitless. Three of these tracks feature keyboard arranged and performed by Philip Glass, and performances by Michael Riesman and the rest of the production team. The songs include 'Black Beach,' 'And I Do Just What I Want,' 'Pack of Camels' and a cover of the band's classic track 'Jack the Ripper.'"
