This goes back a few years, probably the late 50ties, early 60ties but I recall reading a liner note where Paul Despond describes a situation in which he was in a tent in Afganistan and a nomad walked by, playing the notes from Our of Nowhere on his flute. As I recall, he immediately jotted the notes down.
Does anyone else recall this, or is it just my imagination?
