Superb, remastered edition of this classic progressive album that features liner notes by Mark Powell, bonus tracks and excellent remastering. Basically these records have been given the same excellent job that Decca gave to the Caravan catalog by the same team.
Bonus tracks are:
Another night (single edit)
Piano piece (previously unreleased demo)
Lunar sea (live at the Hammersmith Odeon 4/14/76)
Song within a song (live at the Hammersmith Odeon)

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 and Andy Latimer score again with a masterpiece called Rajaz, which is one of their best releases with beautiful melodies and great guitar work, and with first rate musicians that understand and complement Latimer's musical vision, among them the excellent Ton Sherpenzeel on keys, himself the talented prog rock ex maestro of Dutch band Kayak."

"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!

“This is the first solo album by the founder of the UK band Nirvana, Patrick Campbell Lyons.
Originally issued on the Sovereign label in 1973, “Me & My Friend” was the first solo album by the writer, vocalist & producer who had recorded five albums under the Nirvana moniker (including three with writing partner Alex Spyropoulos). “Me & My Friend” featured all the hallmarks of Campbell Lyons’ work for Nirvana, making for a charming album.
Original vinyl copies of “Me & My Friend” now attain vast...

Remastered, 2005 edition in mini-lp sleeve. "Another excellent Italian one-shot...However, this album surely ranks in the upper echelon of the Italian heavy progressive albums, closest stylistically to perhaps Alphataurus or Semiramis. Campo Di Marte's album is filled with monstrous fuzzed-out guitar riffs, but also has a definite classically influenced side, as for every heavy moment there are also generally pleasant passages with piano,, flute and horn. The melodies are, as usual for Italian bands...

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

Another excellent performance in fine audience sound from this series!

“Live In Brighton 1975 is the second in a series of Can live concerts available in full for the first time. Originally recorded on tape, these carefully restored live albums will comprise the entirety of each show in the format of a story with a beginning, middle and end, with Can's performances taking on a life of their own. The band's line up for this legendary 1975 performance features all four original members...

This was actually a little bit of a revelation to me, because even though I absolutely do consider myself a Can fan (man!), my interest in their albums basically ends after Soon After Babaluma, as I always felt that their albums went from being kinda magnificent throughout before then to being quite spotty.

And I still do think that, but apparently Can as a live band remained a very strong force longer than they did on record! This is a very good recording both sonically and in terms of...

Can live during the time that they were recording Tago Mago in excellent form and with very good & balanced sound (a bit ‘flat’, but it’s a TV broadcast from 1970 for goodness sake!).

“Can, live from Soest, Rockpalast, Germany in November 1970 This remarkable set is the earliest full concert recording of the mighty Can.

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!

“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.”

It was Serge Rahoerson, one of the musicians he had met in Madagascar at the end of the '60s and who had played on his first album Malagasy. Rahoerson announced that he was in Paris for a few days.
