"Out of all the solo albums the members of Yes recorded in the mid-70s, Anderson's remains the most bizarre, and arguably the best. Personally, it's my all-time favorite Yes solo album, though for those more rock-oriented or less tolerant of Anderson's spacey vocal and lyrical approach, Chris Squire's Fish out of Water will probably fill that slot. Olias is a concept album that renders the mythic themes of Noah's Ark set in space. Olias features Anderson at the height of his lyric-writing; heavily...

A super-duper deluxe edition of the 1970 art rock classic debut album by Barclay James Harvest.

"Features an additional 33 bonus tracks drawn from new 5. 1 surround sound and stereo mixes from the original multi-track master tapes, BBC radio sessions from 1968 and 1971, and non-album singles along with the 1968 short film Mr. Sunshine.
The set also includes a lavishly illustrated 68-page book with previously unseen photographs and an essay by BJH specialists Keith and Monika Domone...

Third album by this British group that came out of the English progressive movement of the 60's. Their music combines elements of The Moody Blues, to whom they are always compared, but also the more mellow parts of early King Crimson and Genesis. This was their 3rd album, released in 1971 and is yet another strong symphonic rock contender.

“This expanded edition of “…Other Short Stories” comprises 40 tracks and features the original UK stereo mix re-mastered from the original master tapes and...

2016 deluxe 3 disc set of this classic 1974 release by BJH, which includes (a) a new re-master of the original stereo mix, a new remix from the original multi-track tapes, revealing new details and sounds and (c) 5.1 and hi-res files.
Includes a illustrated booklet, many photos and seven bonus tracks!

"The sound they came up with is beautiful, timeless, and very powerful. Shorn of their orchestra, and having to rely on keyboard player Woolly Wolstenholme's amazing ability with the Mellotron...

2016 deluxe 3 disc set of this classic 1977 release by BJH, which includes (a) a new re-master of the original stereo mix, a new remix from the original multi-track tapes, revealing new details and sounds and (c) 5.1 and hi-res files.
Includes a illustrated booklet, many photos and six bonus tracks!

2003 remaster with 5 bonus tracks, this reissue was coordinated by Mark Powell and the booklet was designed by Phil Smee and includes lots of great photos and information! Originally released October, 1976. "BJH bring to mind so many influences yet rem...

"Esoteric Recordings are proud to announce the release of a newly re-mastered and expanded edition of the classic gold selling 1978 album by BARCLAY JAMES HARVEST, “XII”. Originally released in September 1978, the album was another big selling release for the band achieving Silver disc status in the UK and Gold in Germany.
The album struck a chord with the record buying public thanks to tracks such as ‘Berlin’, ‘In Search of England’, ‘Nova Lepidoptera’ and more, and its popularity continues to...

This release includes a CD of a new stereo remix, and a DVD with a new 5.1 surround sound mix along with the original 1978 mix, all taken from the original 1978 analogue tapes.
This album, originally released in 1977, established (ex Yes, King Crimson, Genesis, National Health) drummer Bill Bruford as a (very) credible composer and bandleader. For me, this is one of the finest fusion albums to have come out of the UK.
In addition to Bill's excellent playing, there is Dave Stewart on keyboards...

This release includes a CD of a new stereo remix, and a DVD with a new 5.1 surround sound mix along with the original 1979 mix, AND an outtake of Five G, all taken from the original 1979 analogue tapes.
Follow-up to the superb debut by Bill Bruford and featuring the same band: Bill-drums, Jeff Berlin-bass, and Dave Stewart. This is a slightly more conventional fusion album than Feels Good To Me, but it suffers not a bit for that, as this 1979 album is one of the best late-period straight-ahead fusion..

“Chimpan A, are the electronica inspired prog duo comprising Robert Reed (Magenta/Cyan/Sanctuary) and former singer Steve Balsamo (Jon Lord/Eric Woolfson/Superstar). The Empathy Machine is the follow up to their self-titled debut album in 2006.
"We’ve been working on this album now for an amazing 14 years, since the original album back in 2006," Balsamo tells Prog. "It's been different," adds Reed. "Usually you look back on a record with some regrets over time. We’ve been able to park the record for..

“Djabe is one of the finest Progressive / Jazz fusion bands working in the world today. They are also known to a wider audience outside of their native land thanks to a series of collaborative albums and live appearances with the legendary solo musician and ex-Genesis member STEVE HACKETT, who also appears on this album.
DJABE features Tamas Barabas (bass guitar), Attila Egerhazi (acoustic and electric guitar, percussion), Áron Koós-Hutás (flugelhorn, trumpet), János Nagy (keyboards) and Péter Kaszás..

“In 2016 the celebrated Hungarian group DJABE and acclaimed solo musician and former Genesis guitarist STEVE HACKETT spent a few days on the magnificent island of Sardinia. Near the Nostra Signore di Tergu cathedral they built a temporary recording studio in the priest’s house. The recordings went well, the artists were deeply inspired by the surroundings.
The 3-day long improvised session was put into shape by Tamás Barabás, who later in Budapest produced a whole album from the multitrack tapes to...

"The album is the result of an improvised session that took place in a church on the island of Sardinia between the musicians from one of Hungary's most acclaimed jazz groups, Djabe and acclaimed guitarist Steve Hackett.
The collaborations between the band and the former Genesis guitarist and acclaimed solo artist began in 2007. Steve Hackett has appeared on the concert stage with Djabe performing both Genesis and Hackett solo material and Djabe compositions. This album is their first collaborative...

After In A Glass House, Giant and their record label made a concerted effort to 'break the band' in the USA, and the band toured here constantly. Signing with Capitol, they released 3 great studio albums that gave the band a slightly more rockified and accessible face, without losing a whit of the complexity of their earlier work.
Free Hand was their seventh album and was the middle one of that trio and it is one of many extremely fine works in their catalog. It rocks like hell and incredibly...

Audiophile 24/88.2 recording and stereo/multi-channel mix. Playable on any CD player.

"I have probably listened to a track from this album or the whole album every week since 2007. The CD travels with me to audio dealers and hi-fi shows. The recording is crystalline and showcases the magnificent cymbal prowess of Paul Motian who keeps rhythm like no other drummer. The recording highlights the fantastic fingerwork of Gordon Grdina on his electric guitar, and especially on his oud. And the...

“A rather excellent album by Fripp and The Grid who have worked together frequently over the years. It begins as pure guitar drone, drifting into pleasant ambient, and by Leviathan the drums begin to appear in mix, approaching Fire Tower this has turned into blissful downtempo dub-techno, and so it continues to the end. Very much one long composition cut up into 9 parts, an album that deserves attention and to be listened to all the way through (just like good old progressive music, be it house or rock).”

“Following the tremendous success of 2017’s ‘The Night Siren’ (charted at #22 in Germany, #28 in the UK), legendary former Genesis guitarist Steve Hackett will release his new studio album ‘At The Edge Of Light’.
The album which features ten songs, sees Steve unite a vast amount of styles ranging from guitar driven rock to epic orchestration, from world music to the reflective and atmospheric all brought together in Steve Hackett’s unique style.
Hackett will present the album live as part of...

“Jakko Jakszyk had a life-changing moment when he saw King Crimson playing Watford Town Hall on the 15th July 1971. Hearing the band that night instilled in the 13-year-old Jakko a determination to become a professional musician, setting him off on the road to what has been by any definition a remarkable career.
2020 sees the release of Jakko Jakszyk’s latest solo album, “Secrets & Lies” featuring King Crimson bandmates, Robert Fripp, Gavin Harrison, Tony Levin, and Mel Collins. Containing ten...

“Jethro Tull - A (A La Mode) [The 40th Anniversary Edition] Collection Expands The Group's 1980 Album With Steven Wilson's Newly Remixed Version Of The Original, Plus Unreleased Studio And Live Recordings, And A Remixed Version Of The Slipstream Video Collection

After completing its acclaimed folk-rock trilogy in 1979, Jethro Tull returned a year later with A, an album that introduced a different sound and a new line-up. Originally intended as a solo record by the band’s founder Ian Anderson....

This set expands the legendary group's 1979 album with Steven Wilson's newly remixed version of the original, plus studio outtakes, an entire unreleased concert recorded in 1980, and more. Stormwatch is the twelfth studio album by the progressive rock group Jethro Tull, released September 1979. It is considered the last in the trilogy of folk-rock albums the band started with Songs from the Wood in 1977 and continued the following year with Heavy Horses.
It was the final album to feature the classic...

Tull’s first and there is some great stuff here, even if much bluesier than what was to come.

"With a legendary career spanning nearly five decades, KANSAS has firmly established itself as one of America’s iconic classic rock bands. This "garage band" from Topeka released their debut album in 1974 after being discovered by Wally Gold, who worked for Don Kirshner, and have gone on to sell more than 30 million albums worldwide. The band is currently comprised of original drummer Phil Ehart, bassist/vocalist Billy Greer, vocalist/keyboardist Ronnie Platt, violinist/guitarist David Ragsdale...

Stephen Wilson mixed edition of the 1st album by the 80s comeback album by this seminal group, which blew a lot of minds back then. There isn't so much extra on the CD itself (some alternate mixes). The DVD contains the new and 30th anniversary mixes in high-res stereo a 5.1, hi-res mix. Additionally there's the preliminary rough mixes of the album in the original order and three tracks video tracks filmed for the BBC's OGWT (too bad they couldn't get the two pieces they performed on "Fridays" - I...

Note: This is my personal opinion: Not even Robert Fripp can polish the sonic turd that is Earthbound and make it sound 'good'. Still, the Summit Studios stuff is quite good quality and there are bonus tracks which are better than most of what was originally on the album.

"The thirteenth release in the King Crimson 40th Anniversary series.
Earthbound was originally issued in 1972 and marked the final statement by the band's Islands-era incarnation.

This is the HUGE box that someone, somewhere, will get bludgeoned to death by his or her angry spouse with. Talk about a selling point!

"Limited to a single pressing run, Starless offers an in-depth overview of King Crimson's celebrated mid-1970's live line-up at its most exploratory.

Few bands have offered as much variety in material from night to night, and King Crimson's propensity for improvisation and fondness for playing its newest material - often unreleased on record at the tim

“When a band as good as Magenta make it through to their 20th anniversary, it is a real cause for celebration amongst the prog rock community. When Robert Reed and Christina Booth talked through the Magenta band concept back in 1999 – eventually leading to the release of their debut album Revolutions in 2001 – even they would not have envisaged the twists and turns they would experience over the next two decades.
The 20th anniversary concert took place at Arlington Arts Centre, Newbury, Berkshire...

"Magenta follow up 2017's much-praised 'We Are Legend' with a brand new studio album 'Masters of Illusion'. The 60 minute album consists of six songs, including the 17 minute title track.
The album’s theme is based around the lives of six famous horror actors of the 1950s and 1960s.
Lyricist Steve Reed: 'My brother and I are both huge fans of the classic Hammer and Universal horror films. I remember as a kid watching the horror double bills on Saturday nights on BBC2 with great fondness. We...

Two musicians from the glory days of Tangerine Dream meet up and capture some of the old magic, but not in a retro way.

“Neuland started the way many long overdue projects do: with Paul Haslinger and Peter Baumann asking themselves, "Why isn't there anything out there like this?" In their case, that meant a deeply immersive debut album that's respectful of their roots in Tangerine Dream but exists on it's own astral plane.
Far more restless than most ambient records, the pair's self-titled...

2016 deluxe 3 disc set of this classic 1981 release from Genesis' original guitarist, which surprised everyone at the time because (1) It's mostly an electronic music album and (2) despite the fact that it's completely different than anything else he ever did, it is a really great one.
This includes: (a) a new remix from the original multi-track tapes, (b) early mixes and demos of the album and (c) 5.1 and hi-res files.

"I've been working hard finishing the new Sanctuary IV album, but needed a break to clean the musical pallatte, so I really wanted to do something different. At the age of 8 I had two albums for Christmas, "The Sound OF Music" and "Tubular Bells". The latter defined my musical path. That Christmas my brother had Jean Michel Jarre "Oxygen" as his present.
Over the years, and especially of late, I've realised how much of an influence that electronic music has been to me over the years. From Jarre...
