    Since January 1992, the Knitting Factory has devoted the last Sunday of every month to John Zorn's musical gamepiece, Cobra. Each time, a different organizer brings in 12 of his or her peers to play. This album was recorded live at The Knitting Factory, in New York City, throughout 1992. These monthly impromptu jams were dated according to the month they were recorded. Jeff Buckley participated in April 1992's recordings.

Liner Notes on "Ulalume":

     We recorded the last performances for this album -- by Gavin Friday and Jeff Buckley -- on the evening of February 13, 1997. Jeff was moving to Memphis the next day. Allen Ginsberg, a friend of both Gavin and Jeff, came by to visit and ended up coaching Jeff. The result is a beautiful reading, full of innocence and discovery. Within a few months both Allen and Jeff would be gone -- events that I have not really accepted yet. They were both rare creatures of this earth and the memory of the two of them working together that night will remain with me forever. I miss them terribly. This album is dedicated to Jeff and Allen.
