Bobby Bradford: cornet
Glenn Ferris: trombone

Recorded live on Sunday, May 13, 1979 at 8:30 pm, Century City Playhouse, 10508 West Pico Boulevard, Los Angeles, CA.

“This well recorded and mastered session features Golia, clarinetist John Carter, cornetist Bobby Bradford, and trombonist Glenn Ferris – all in tip-top form. Carter is especially irrepressible, pouring out torrents of notes with a fleetness and ease that’s...

Personel: Alex Cline (d), Bobby Bradford (t), Ken Filiano (b), Vinny Golia (sax)

"Here is an item in Vinny Golia’s discography that gives a global sense to his life as an artist. Before being a musician, Golia was a painter. A very particular...

“The disc begins with, "That Was For Albert 10," Golia's tenor wrapping around Bradford's smearing trumpet for a repeating fanfare over the free range drums of Cline and the rambling pulsations of Filiano. Suddenly, the band contracts into "straight" time playing, just ahead of a dual solo by the two horns. Bradford finally breaks loose for a few laps around the field before Golia erupts with a massive tenor solo full of long lines broken up by well-timed screams.
"Otolith" has a vaguely...

Recorded in Houston in 2014, but never released before now, this is three (established and up and coming) masters of free music / free jazz.

"Empiricism in the west" is a revelation, two amazing wind players - saxophonist, clarinetist and flautist Vinny Golia and saxophonist Urs Leimgruber - in a series of free improvising duos pushing their instruments into unusual and captivating territories.
The aim of this luxurious collaboration is to obtain a synergy of the sounds of all the instruments, keeping in mind all that the technique involves: circular breathing, search for dissonances, multiphonics, exaltation of acoustic dynamics...

"A supremely talented 5-piece progressive hard rock outfit from Kentucky. Originally released in 1972 on the Bridges label. The band always tight and composed, storms through 7 finely-crafted self-penned songs with flair and originality."...

"Gorgeous officially licensed US edition of this amazing mystical cosmic mind journey. Sergius Golowin is a Swiss author. In 1973 he got sucked into R.U. Kaiser's Cosmic Courier vortex and recorded this masterwerke. Over three long tracks Golowin provides spoken voice. The bed of music is provided by the Cosmic Jokers - Jerry Berkers, Klaus Schulze, Jurgen Dollase, Witthuser and Westrup, and Jorg Mierke. A melange of Mellotron, flutes, electric and acoustic guitars, and a variety of percussion.....

One of the progressive hard rock classics of the early 70s German scene, this was the 2nd and final release by this German band, originally released on Brain in 1972. Reissued over 15 years ago for the 1st time, that reissue has been out of print for...

"First CD compilation of recent seven-inch and twelve-inch records by the enigmatic Wendy Gondeln, mixing electronic music, sawed violin, and Martian intelligence into a thoroughly spicy and utterly confounding goulash. Featured collaborations include Tim Berrescheim, Norbert Möslang, JB Slik, Wolfgang Voigt, and Michael Wertmüller. Projections also includes some of the art installation projects for Albert Oehlen works of recent vintage, such as "Alarm," composed by Wertmüller, well known among other...

Wendy Gondeln - violin, electronic treatments, and more
Mats Gustafsson - piano mate, saxophones, and live electronics
Wolfgang Voigt - editing and mix (track 3 and 8)
Martin Siewert - guitar and lap top guitar (track 1 and 7)

“In 2018, Mats Gustafsson provided raw saxophonic material for the elusive Wendy Gondeln, who sometimes applied a scalpel, sometimes a pneumatic drill, to rework, remix, reimagine all the Swede's squeaks, pops, blats, and tones. In some places, Gondeln adds....

“Gong’s 2nd album for Virgin Records has been remastered from the original Virgin masters for the very first time by the original producer, Simon Heyworth, and has been expanded with a previously unreleased concert recorded in Roanne, France on 17th August 1973 plus the single version of “Other Side Of The Sky” and 3 rare out-takes.”

The first of the Radio Gnome trilogy, which for many people stands as Daevid's crowning achievement. A great version of the band:
Daevid Allen-guitar/vocals/glissando guitar
Gilli Smyth-vocals..

The 2nd post-Daevid Allen release by Gong, and I think most people would agree that it is the best of them. A fantastic album of mallet-percussion driven fusion, headed by an amazing all-star cast: Mireille Bauer/Benoit Moerlin-vibes/marimba, Mino Cine...

The 2nd post-Daevid Allen release by Gong, and I think most people would agree that it is the best of them. A fantastic album of mallet-percussion driven fusion, headed by an amazing all-star cast: Mireille Bauer/Benoit Moerlin-vibes/marimba, Mino Cinelou-percussion, Allan Holdsworth-guitar (one of his classic 70's performances), Didier Malherbe-sax & flute, Pierre Moerlin-drums & percussion and Francis Moze-fretless bass. Highly recommended.

No, this isn't the reunion show album, this is a compilation of 14 tracks taken from prime-period Daevid Allen-led Gong, from Camembert Electrique through Flying Teapot, Angel's Egg and You. Stupid cheap price if you want to sample this great 70s...

"Inspired by the light, love and passing of our dear friend and inspiration, Daevid Allen."-Dave Sturt

Could it happen? Should it happen?
Daevid wanted it to happen, so, yes. It should.

"Featuring the voice of Daevid Allen on two songs and guest appearances from Steve Hillage and Didier Malherbehe, Rejoice! I'm Dead! is the 2016 release (and 28th album) from the enduring legend that is Gong.
Gong has entered yet another new phase in its four-decades plus journey with Rejoice! I'

"This two-disc compilation provides a sketchy glimpse into the bizarre world of Daevid Allen and Gong. It features rare snippets from 1960s pre-Gong recordings, radio sessions, studio outtakes, and concert recordings from the '70s, as well as assorted...

“Following the passing of visionary & founding member, Daevid Allen, whose importance was celebrated on 2016's 'Rejoice! I'm Dead!' album & the forging of their own creative vision on 2019's 'The Universe Also Collapses', Gong continue their upward trajectory in 2023 with 'Unending Ascending'.
The album is a return to relatively shorter songs, an eclectic eight-song cycle that forms a pan-galactic suite, veering between the ecstatic, apocalyptic, meditative & catchy, often within the same song.”

“Gong’s 3rd album for Virgin Records has been remastered from the original Virgin master tapes for the very first time by the original producer, Simon Heyworth, and has been expanded with a live concert recorded live at Hyde Park in London in June 1974 plus an Alternate Version of “A PHP’s Advice’ and a rare version of “Where Have All The Flowers Gone?’”

The conclusion of the Radio Gnome trilogy, & probably the band's crowning achievement along with the very different Camembert Electrique. The...

“I've heard other old-school Gong fans rave about how good this live CD is. Show took place at the Sesi Theatre in San Paulo, Brazil on November 20, 2007.
Thoroughly enjoyed the rocking "Radio Gnome Invisible", the awesome eleven-minute epic "Fohat Digs Holes In Space" (going back a way's, there), "Oily Way", the incredibl

“Excellent debut album from Gilli Smyth's San Francisco based band This is very good indeed, my basic belief that all the Gongsters are currently producing some of the best work of their careers is completely reinforced by this release.
Gilli of course has long been the mistress of spoken delivery, and her inflection and timing just get better and better, as it should. It's a skill or craft, just like playing any instrument, and she has been practising it for a long time - this is her at the top of...


Some of you may remember Delia Gonzalez from "The Days Of Mars", her joint work with Gavin Russom, which is a great, modern day electronic music album that channels 1971-1975 but in an original way and think: Mother Mallard's Portable Masterpiece Co. (that's the main sound I hear), Klaus Schulze, Tangerine Dream, Manuel Gottsching.
After a very long time off and one solo piano album, she's back with this, a similar electronic album and one that is also hugely recommended by me if you like the 1st two..

"A work nearly five years in its evolution, In Remembrance is Delia Gonzalez's first major project since she ended her collaboration with Gavin Russom to focus on her fine art career. Beginning as a set of 16mm films of ballet dancers accompanied by solo piano compositions, Gonzalez found inspiration for the piece in inspiration itself: In Remembrance celebrates the creative spark and clarity that make art possible in its hypnotic music and visuals. Her four piano pieces were influenced by spiritual...

For a short time, while they last, this 2015 release is $10.00 off the regular price!
