Mixed by Kurt Munkacsi and Philip Glass. Music published by Dunvagen Music Publishers, Inc. 1977 Virgin Records Ltd. Philip Glass: North Star. North Star stands in sharp contrast with Virgin's British art rock bands of the '70s. Where National Health and Matching Mole displayed principled mock jazzy expansion, Glass' brevity cuts his cyclical arpeggios and ostinatos at their peak of intensity. Philip Glass - North Star 1977.

I was not surprised to find out it was Phillip Glass, given the quality. Until that day, I will grudgingly settle for this version and leave to my imagination what North Star would sound like if performed well. Three of the pieces, actually, ARE available in a very good all-piano version. They are found on a disc of Glass's piano pieces played by Arturo Salteri called Circles. Etichetta: Virgin CDV 2085. Formato: CD, Album, Reissue. Paese: Europe. The music on North Star was originally written at the suggestion of Barbara Rose for the film, Mark Di Suvero, Sculptor, directed by François de Menil for Parrot Productions Ltd. In most cases, the titles of the selections refer to works by Di Suvero which appear in the film. For the purpose of making a record a certain amount of rearranging and remixing was necessary. Also, a different sequence was chosen in order to produce an independent and coherent listening experience. North Star CD, Album. Virgin, Virgin Japan. VJCP-23047. North Star 1977.
