These were the dubplates/reference acetates used by Peter Zummo to OK engineer Paul Gold's cut of Lateral Pass, in his New York studio. Sleeve comes with the 'Salt Mastering' stamp. Side A of the vinyl is on one dubplate, side B is on another (package of two dubplates in total–each dubplate/acetate has one blank side). Tracklisting and durations are the same as on the finished record. Can be played on all turntables.
#20 in The Wire's Top 50 Archival Releases of 2015.
The Wire, Issue 371, January 2015.
"Beautiful, weightless music, miraculously open, loose and inviting. Like Russell's World Of Echo LP from the same era, this music is as natural as breathing, and once heard, almost as necessary."
- The Wire, Issue 364, May 2014.
"The music itself is a beautiful melding of acoustic timbres with a repetitive flow, maintaining a lyric narrative that is absent in the work of a lot of the current minimalist fashionistas. Ruyle's tabla work sparkles over the thrashing rhythms of Ahmed's percussion, while the rest of the ensemble chants a seamless liturgy throughout. Lateral Pass is a lovely testament to Arthur Russell's influence and Zummo's penchant for modernity."

"This year's most beautiful record."
