One of Reich's early masterpieces, "Drumming" employs the composer's trademark phasing technique and functions as a transitional piece between his early, more formal work and the less structured compositions that would follow.

Outer sleeve Very Good, with some minor splitting and chipping to the edges, light soil, and a faint dampstain to the heel. Inner sleeves toned, one with a small split, Very Good plus. Records are about Fine, with a few faint, shallow scratches, and play properly.

Score printed from Reich's holograph musical annotations and instructions, accordion folded in self wrappers, printed on the versos only. Very Good, with light toning to the edges, nicking to the wrapper edges, and a tide mark to the lower front wrapper.
