Archery is an album by John Zorn featuring his early "game piece" composition of the same name. The album was first released on Parachute Records in 1982 and later released on Tzadik Records with additional rehearsal takes, (tracks 1-3), as a part of the The Parachute Years Box Set in 1997 and as a triple CD set in 2001.[1]


The Allmusic review by Thom Jurek awarded the album 4 stars stating "The package, as with all Tzadik releases, is stellar, full of three inserts, production notes, and a replica of the original score. If you allow it to, it will change the way you listen to music -- and maybe watch TV, too.".[2]
