Bob James, a recent college graduate, brought ESP a master of a session he had produced, featuring Barre Phillips and Bob Pozar. He chose for the front cover a torn poster he had photographed on a visit to Australia. In 1974, having garnered several gold records, he returned to visit ESP on the ground floor at 290 West End Avenue, in New York City. Lounging in a swing back leather chair, he commented that he thought his ESP album was the best one he had ever made. - Bernard Stollman

Press Quotes
____________________________________________________________________________

"Lively and often humorous compositions." -- All Music Guide

"...rare indeed is a successful pairing of electronic and acoustic audio collage, much less in a mid-1960s jazz setting...Couple this with the fact that this is one of the most cleanly recorded items in ESP's catalog, and Explosions is a weighty historical artifact not to be missed." -- Clifford Allen
