Evening in Torpor

Evening in Torpor was an album recorded as a student project at Fredonia State University in around 1981 by Al Garzon
and Paul Reimer that Natalie Merchant and Rob Buck, along with other people, were a part of. In 1988, Al released the album
without the permission of the performers on the album in the hopes of profiting, and a lawsuit was filed.
There are some truly interesting things on the album. Definately worth a listen.
