"The 1980-81 years were strange in that many progressive bands experienced a brief resuscitation of "progness" after dipping their toes into more accessible albums, before disappearing wholesale into the pop machine. Yes made Drama after Tormato, and...

This 1981 album is not the band's greatest hour, but it's considering the state of progressive rock in 1981, it is a solid, good album and for me it's the last good album they would make for at least 10 years. This excellent reissue includes 35'...

"Camel's classic 5th album from 1977 has been digitally remastered and expanded with the single version of "Highways To The Sun" and six songs recorded live for the BBC In Concert show. The enhanced packaging contains rare and previously unseen...

"The sound is clear, and the performance is excellent. They were certainly in the zone that night. This is the best Camel lineup since the original. Everything is good, but "Lady Fantasy" is superb...they completly nailed it. If Camel can continue to produce work like this, prog fans will truly be blessed."-Mark Wellman

"Camelias Garden are a very young band from Rome born around the singer and poly-instrumentalist Valerio Smordoni. Their music features lyrical atmospheres and particularly elegant vocal arrangements. The sound, between acoustic and vintage, reminds...

This is the second release by this 8 piece + guests band who get a very, very large sound that veers betweeen "The Grand Wazoo" type big band jazz/rock and a more chamber rock sound ala Five Storey Ensemble, Julverne, Aranis, etc. This gets a solid thumbs (and toes) up; highly recommended!!

"Strasbourg's eccentric and eclectic Zeuhl/avant garde/RIO "ensemble" (more like a small orchestra!) have produced a sequel to their 2011 "soundtrack" to an imaginary alien space invasion. The band has matured..

This is a reprint, on the band's own label, of their debut full-length release, which has been unavailable for some time now.
These copies are autographed!
Really superlative first full length from this French jazz/rock band. This French group from Strasbourg first came to attention 3 years ago with their self-released EP, which showed great promise.
But this new release really ups their game and presents this seven-piece instrumental group at the top of their (or anyone's, really) musical.

"Started as the so-called 'Krautrock Guerrilla' in 2012, six years later the Berlin combo Camera are releasing their fourth full-length album, Emotional Detox. Customarily associated with the likes of NEU! and La Düsseldorf it is time to allow Camera to break free of the krautrock tradition. For fans of nominative determinism, there can be few more apposite appelations than Michael Drummer. He is the catalyst, linking everything together as he crosses the soundscape of everything captured on Camera...

"Camera presents their third album, Phantom of Liberty. The beat hammers like the pulse of a pair of lovers on the run from a gang of racist thugs - the sound is manic, but from it speaks a seemingly insurmountable inner strength. This arch of tension is home to Camera. The Berlin band is rightly compared with icons of seventies Krautrock such as Neu! and La Düsseldorf, with a tight and driving sound, yet they are still somehow unpredictable. Hardly any other band understands how to mutate tiny musical...

Very good, modern duo playing a music that is modern but also a homage to Krautrock bands of the 70s in general and Neu! in particular. Nice stuff!

“Warehouse find of the last copies of this long unavailable 1998 release. The Pyramid Trio, led by Roy Campbell, has been on the New York scene since 1984. Ancestral Homeland is their first domestic release and it features the original line-up of Campbell (trumpet, flute, and percussion), William Parker (bass, percussion) and Zen Matsuura (drums). The music of this group is based on the music of the world, both composed and improvised. By encompassing African, Native American and jazz structures, the...

"CVB's self-titled third album generally differs little from II & III, continuing the blend of wistfully weird lyrics, any number of musical touches from all over the map and good-time vibes. The opening "Good Guys & Bad Guys" proves that much, with reggae, folk, country and more stewed together as Lowery plaintively sings about lawyers and the people in Russia and the like. From there on in it's another collection of generally short and generally fun ditties, but with a few more tweaks here and there...

Heavy progresive band, previously best known as a one shot, but here they are once more. This double CD, in a mini lp sleeve features one live CD from the band's early prime in 1972 (listenable sound, but NOT good sound) and a new live recording from 2...

Very early recordings, including some of their very first, all featuring Malcolm Mooney. While this is more of historical interest than being one of their greats, there is some really good stuff here, and this is a no-brainer for fans.

Recorded in 1972, this is one of my personal favorites by the band, as there is a bit more 'groove' in the playing (and drummer Jaki was always one of the great groove drummers ever).

"The follow-up to Tago Mago is only lesser in terms of being shorter; otherwise the Can collective delivers its expected musical recombination act with the usual power and ability. Liebezeit, at once minimalist and utterly funky, provides another base of key beat action for everyone to go off on -- from the buried...

There are a bunch of great Can albums, but this is *the* one for me. A timeless, beautiful, groove-classic. Glad to see that Jason agrees, and while I had never mentally articulated the 'oceantic' feel he mentions below, he's spot on, and I thank him for saying it for me!

"Damo Suzuki's final effort is Can's most atmospheric and beautiful record, a spartan collection of lengthy, jazz-like compositions recorded with minimal vocal contributions. Employing keyboard washes to create a breezy, almost oce

Much to the shock of everyone (probably even themselves), Can reformed wih their original line-up (Holger, Jaki, Michael, Irmin and Malcolm Mooney!) for a single album in 1986. They even made a high profile appearance on Germany TV, which I saw! It's a...

Recorded in 1970, and actually consisting of film soundtracks for arty films (none of which I've ever seen surfacing anywhere!), this finds the band in transition, with some tracks featuring original vocalist Malcolm Mooney and some featuring new...

The band's third album, which was originally a double album and which was originally released in 1971 is considered one of their greatest works. This was the 1st album to soley feature Damo Suzuki as the vocalist and he makes his presence felt here strongly. One of the greats by one of the greats!

"Tago Mago, the first album with Damo Suzuki on vocals, features the Can line up of Holger Czukay on bass, Michael Karoli on guitars, Jaki Liebezeit on drums and Irmin Schmidt on keyboards, and was...

Originally released in 1976 as a double album of unreleased studio material, it all fits here on this single CD, giving you a good, all unreleased material overview of their work from 1968-1975. Lots of work featuring Damo or Malcolm. No one ever seems...


“Originally released in 1977 on the great Music Gallery Editions, the debut, self-titled album from the Canadian Electronic Ensemble finally gets a reissue on CD, over 40 years after it was first put out.
Created by five musicians using the Ems Synthi A, the Arp Odyssey, the Roland Sh-5, as well as found-sounds, trumpets, and more, CEE is a testament to the history of analogue experimentation in Canada.”

Sound on the 50' live show from 1981 is quite good for a 30 year old radio broadcast. The rest is pretty awful sounding.
So, this is:
Commodore Ballroom, Vancouver, BC, Canada, January 17, 1981 radio broadcast
1. Nowadays A Woman's Gotta Hi

Decently good bootleg sound and a good show from Don, Eric Drew Feldman, Denny Wally, Jeff Morris Tepper and Robert Williams.

"Nuts and bolts first-the sound quality. It's actually pretty good/good, better than you might think from 1977 on a Paris, France stage. It's fairly crisp and clean but with a slightly "distant" sound to everything. If you've heard other similar live recordings--bootleg or legitimate--you've heard this kind of sound before. But if you don't mind the less than perfect...

Very good sounding radio broadcast from the very last few weeks of the final tour.

This is a repackaging of disc two - one of the discs of great stuff from the now long out of print Grow Fins box set, so it's utterly worthless if you own that and really good and worthwhile (and quite good sounding for 50 year old unreleased recordings) if you don't!
