    Originally released on CD in 2010 as part of the Special Edition FMP im Rückblick / FMP in Retrospect box set, here is an early, otherwise unavailable live set from Peter Brötzmann's Die Like a Dog quartet. Recorded the year after their self-titled debut, Close Up provides two mega-jams that extend the Ayler-ite excursions of the first record even further into the stratosphere. We're incredibly excited to be able to offer this addition to the limited Die Like a Dog canon.

"A previously unissued live recording of Peter Brötzmann’s quartet Die Like a Dog! At the 1994 Total Music Meeting. An excellent performance kicking off with Hamid Drake on tablas, then gaining in momentum and fierceness. For those who have recently crossed the quartet Hairy Bones (Brötzmann/Kondo/Pupillo/Nilssen-Love), go back to Die Like a Dog (Brötzmann/Kondo/Parker/Drake) and have fun comparing the rhythms sections’ styles. This is excellent fire music building between an interrogation and an assertion."—François Couture
