This contains their great 1973 Top Gear performance and a substantial amount of extra material, and even two outtakes from their albums, all of which have never been released!
Despite it saying ‘BBC’, nearly all of this was recorded at Wumme during the group’s classic early 70s period and is like a great lost album by them and even includes their ‘lost’ sixth member, Arnulf Meifurt, who only appears on the 1st album and ‘Tapes’.

"The Bureau B label breaks into new territory and presents a newly-recorded album by Krautrock legends, Faust. "There is no group more mythical than Faust." Thus wrote English musician and eccentric Julian Cope in his classic of the genre...

When Wayside Music started, I bought something like 250 of these from an overstock dealer and was selling them for $2.00 each for years and years!
Nice to have this old friend from the past back once again at a bargain price (with the passage of 40 years, at the equivalent of the same price, actually!), and it’s also a little bit weird too!

Faust are a rightly legendary experimental German ensemble from the early 1970's. This was the last album to be released in their lifetime and the 1st to.

"Faust's new album Fresh Air differs in several respects from its predecessor, Just Us. The recordings were made at Jean-Hervé Péron's rehearsal studio in Schiphorst in northern Germany, hypnotic pieces with the kind of noisemaking the band is known for. For the new album, Péron and Werner "Zappi" Diermaier were looking for communication with musician friends and the audience. The tracks were recorded in changing ensembles at changing locations in the USA (during a tour in 2016). In these community...

“For the first time ever this lost "last" album recording, Punkt gets a deserved and necessary standalone release.”

"The band called it 5½, fans referred to it as the 'Munich album' and for almost fifty years it's been the missing chapter in Faustian mythology. Now for the first time, the German iconoclasts' previously unreleased fifth album sees the light of day as Punkt . . . Punkt is Faust at their most unhindered, untethered and unstoppable.

"Pierre Favre: The percussionist as poet; the drummer as soundscape painter; the composer as storyteller. Singing Drums was Pierre Favre's first percussion ensemble. A title which sets the agenda: the search for a voice for drums. Hardly any other drummer has worked as consistently with drumming and percussion ensembles as Pierre Favre. Pierre Favre worked with his new ensemble with Chris Jaeger, Valeria Zangger and Markus Lauterburg for five years on this repertoire. Although most of the pieces...

Excellent reissue on Esoteric, overseen by Mark Powell, by singer/songwriter Bill Fay, who released two albums for Deram/Nova in 1970/71 and promptly dissapeared after they came out to total bafflement of the public at large. Why do these belong here? ...

Not mentioned ANYWHERE in the hype for this record is the fact that the great Alan Rushton and the even greater Ray Russell are a big part of this release, as they have been for all of Bill's albums for FIFTY YEARS!

“The great Bill Fay returns with the third album in the celebrated second phase of his recording career.
"21 years ago, Colin Miles of See For Miles records dropped a pebble in a pond." says Fay. It was Miles who, on a gut instinct, reissued Bill Fay's albums for Deram - records...

“Bill Fay has always sung about attempting to understand the most universal questions: those of nature, spirituality, humanity. His songs are "calming hymns for another chaotic time", he says.

"With the kind of humouristic approach characteristic of all things Italian, drummer Francesco Cusa turned the band he founded to play jazz standards into a project dealing, through his original compositions and orchestrations, with the search of the existing possibilities to «re- evoke an epoch and transpose it into the contemporary». And here are the first consequences, maintaining the...

Janet is a great, great, classically trained guitarist who plays a unique, personal music, usually for solo and/or prepared solo guitar. She's been quietly working for a long time and this, her third release, recorded with the equally great, great (but better, better known) Fred Frith will bring her a lot more attention, which she fully deserves.

Mark Feldman: Violin

"The New York violin virtuoso Mark Feldman presents a new solo album, a portrait of the artist now, some twenty-six years after his first solo CD. Sounding Point contains six of his own compositions as well as one piece each by Sylvie Courvoisier and Ornette Coleman. Coleman's 1987 Peace Warriors is one of three pieces in which Feldman skillfully employs overdubs."
