Haha, perhaps, perhaps not. I was also a Sixties college student, but
managed to forget most of that ... it's one of the welcome parts of middle

Seriously, though, I was also influenced by those young composers, and even
had the good fortune to be at a school where Pauline Oliveros was giving
seminars. But Kevin's point about access to only a few recorded composers
back then is well taken. I bet we could name them, and even describe the LP
covers. It was so different from today, a great golden age of new music
when it's possible for PAE to have 700 entries (seven hundred! what a
wonderful, unimaginable burden!)
