“Really solid local garage rock. What makes it slightly unusual and above-average is the lack of slow material. Too bad Collectables, in typical Collectables fashion, butchered the cover picture.”

“Celebrated Chicago frat-garage LP that's also one of the real rarities of the local mid-1960s LP scene. For those who find the North-East preprock LPs too lowkey this is the remedy - a solid party mood similar to the Raider's best albums with some Stones thrown in. The tape splice in "Mary Lou" derives..

"`Light & Dark’ is Radio Massacre International member Steve Dinsdale’s fifth solo studio album, and represents a continuation of the somewhat lighter (dare we say `commercial’?) style of his solo music. The running order and length was designed for possible vinyl release, but when this proved impractical, the concise nature of the album still suggested itself as an advantage, and although more material was available Steve was keen to maintain a collection of pieces that could comfortably be listened to...

"Recorded over the late summer of 2008 on digital 8-track, New Church is Steve Dinsdale's first foray into solo recording after over 15 years as part of Radio Massacre International. The 47-minute album demonstrates a more concise approach than his...

A solo release by one of the members of Radio Massacre International. This moves outside of the Berlin-style they are known best for, but it still fits in the realm of spacey electronic music and it's a winner; the 45' whizzed by so fast that I had to...

In addition to their many albums, RMI have also released a number of very limited edition CDRs. The musical and sound quality of these releases is excellent; as good as their regular releases, but do remember that these are CDRs in simple, flat...

Vincent Dionne is a Quebecois percussionist who, along with Michel-Georges Bregent, released two very excellent drum/electronics albums in the 1970s. This is a compilation of his two solo albums (Destinations and Parade) from 1988 and 1992...

“Jeffrey Alexander has always been into the cool, the weird, and the darkness. He has apparently been heavily dabbling in what the band’s bio describes as “the higher dimensions of cosmic free-rock” since I last hung out with him. I consider him a kind of scholar of outsider and avant-garde music; over the years, he’s run Secret Eye Records, been a member of Jackie O’ Motherfucker, Black Forest Black Sea, and managed to find a way to always remain genuinely excited about creating and performing music...

A new release by Discipline is always a major event. Together since 1987 (30 years!), releasing their first album in 1993, and arriving as a MAJOR force on the modern progressive rock scene with their 1997 release, Unfolded Like Staircase, which is, imo, a modern classic of the symphonic rock sound.
They remain one of the defining and most reliable of the US bands making this music, and this one, celebrating 30 years of the band's existence and only their fifth studio release, is another great one...

The NEW news:
“This iconic album from 1997 has been remixed from the original multi-tracks by Terry Brown of Rush fame. Terry mentions that this album is in his top 5 non-Rush albums. Mastered by Peter Moore.

The OLD news:
An absolute masterpiece of dark symphonic progressive by this US quartet of vocals/keyboards/violin/alto sax, electric & acoustic guitars bass & drums. This is as good of a symphonic release as you will ever see in the 90's. Recommended highly to anyone even...


“All of District 97's critically-acclaimed "Screens" album performed live at Europe's prog rock mecca, Boerderij Cultuurpodium, in October 2019. A brand new song recorded in quarantine-'Divided We Fall'. A wide variety of additional live material spanning D97's back catalogue and covers ranging from John Lennon to Yes. A rousing unreleased live performance of '21st Century Schizoid Man' featuring John Wetton, as well as collaborations with other artists such as Dave Kerzner and Fernando Perdomo. Two secret

“Screens is the NEW STUDIO ALBUM by the established and pro-active band District 97. The band will be touring the world in support of the album throughout 2020. The band has already been praised by many Prog fans and artists alike, after touring with the late John Wetton and performing Bill Bruford's music at his shows.”

“This is the fourth studio album from District 97, and the first since the dual departures of original members, bassist Patrick Mulcahy and keyboardist Rob Clearfield. I can't...

This has the tremendously talented District 97 performing the King Crimson songbook, with John Wetton singing and the band playing their asses off on a surprising and cool selection of tunes.

"All in their twenties, the four young men are currently a top tip on the Swiss jazz scene. District Five have taken time over their debut album, the antithesis of short-term project culture. Now, with Decoy, they do justice to the album’s title, throwing us a seductive bait.
The aim behind the album is to transcend conventional jazz and...

The project was conceived by Guido Bellachioma (music critic, director of «Prog Italia» magazine and of the Progressivamente Festival since 1993) and Davide Pistoni (multi-instrumentalist and uniquely talented composer), who developed and worked on the ideas together, right up to the final mix, obtaining a full-bodied and nuanced sound. Around them they gathered...

“The debut album from Swedish heavy progg band. THE DIVINE BAZE ORCHESTRA follows the path of long time legends URIAH HEEP, KING CRIMSON and a slice of MAHAVISHNU ORCHESTRA with their 10 tracker that's filled with charming guitar leads and heavy organ / mellotron sounds. Raw, spontaneous and plenty of that lovely 70's retro feeling, unfortunalety hard not to be compared to new bands like WICKED MINDS and BLACK BONZO.”

This is all three of the Capricorn Dixie Dregs releases, which, in my opinion, definitely constitute their best work:
Free Fall
What If
Night Of The Living Dregs

They had three still decent ones later for Arista as ‘The Dregs’, but these three here are the great ones. This is US electric jazz/rock 101 and belongs in every collection of 70s fusion.
All three albums here are complete and reissued on BGO, who are one of the better outfits doing reissues, especially in terms of...

"Odyssey is the definitive compendium of solo trumpet music by Bill Dixon, as compiled by the artist. Dixon (1925-2010) was known primarily for his small and large ensemble masterpieces of the decades between Intents and Purposes (1967) and Tapestries (2009). While he appeared infrequently in solo performances, he was continually evolving in studio through these years a remarkably nuanced and powerful solo music -- especially during the mid-1970s, as a counterpart to daily work with student orchestras...

In 1988, when nearly no one was paying any attention to him, progressive music or much of anything else, Jakko M. Jakszyk headed a group including Peter Blegvad, Gavin Harrison, Dave Stewart and Danny Thompson, among others, that released a much enjoyed album on Antilles, by the few that noticed it under the name of Dizrhythmia.
Now, nearly 30 years later and with his profile much higher as the main singer in the new King Crimson, he's back with a new one! And many of the original participants are...

Here’s something a little different and also very good and interesting: Endtroducing.... was possibly the first album ever released comprised solely of samples Shadow found by visiting record stores and buying old vinyl, which is reflected on the cover art.
He put it together using a very minimal amount of equipment (partially due to the fact that the technology wasn’t as advanced as now and partially due to choice) and went for a very moody, low-key sound.
On its own merits, it’s a good work and.

When Dockstader died in 2015, it appeared no new music from him would be released. The discovery of over 4,000 sound files found in his computer archives prompted an exhaustive examination that led to the 15 works premiering on this album.
