30th anniversary 24 bit HDCD remaster. Sixth 'studio' album (more than half of it is live, actually) and back in reinvigorated form with John Wetton, Bill Bruford, David Cross and bad Bob Fripp! Includes the amazingly great tune "Fracture", which is worth the admission price alone. But you also get a bunch of other great stuff too, including The Great Deceiver. So, a must own.

This was the sixth 'studio' album (75% of it is live, actually) and back in reinvigorated form with John Wetton, Bill Bruford, David Cross and bad Bob Fripp, who puts in one of his finest ever performances, as does everyone else!

Great deal on two full length concert recordings from one of the best English bands of the progressive rock era. This is filled with interesting improvisations and hot playing. Listening over 40 years later I can still relate to the reasons that made this band one of my huge favorites at the time.

Originally released in 2000, this is now available from Robert's own label. This shows the influence of metal and 'current alternative' bands more than any of their previous works and got generally bad reviews when it was first released.

“Two CD collection, a history of King Crimson featuring many extracts and tracks appearing on CD for the first time.
Originally available only at concert venues on King Crimson's sold out European 2016 tour. Much sought after by fans, hence more widespread release.

“This on-going tour box series continues the opportunity to present King Crimson's music in slightly unexpected ways and, hopefully, to shed some new light on the band and it's music along the way and includes about 2/3rds material not previously released on CD!
For this 2021 compilation, and perhaps appropriately for a band that has sported a three drummer line-up seated at the front of the stage since 2014, disc one features tracks which showcase KC's rich history of drummers and percussionists...

Throughout much of the 1970s, King Crimson were one of my very favorite bands and the short-lived band with John Wetton & Bill Bruford was their apex for me. I loved their work and I loved their improvisations, which were adventurous and interesting...

"The Power to Believe, originally issued in 2003 is King Crimson’s final studio album, to date. Drawing in part on material issued on the 2001 live mini-album Level 5 and the 2002 studio mini-album Happy With What You Have to be Happy With, the album represented the final statement from the double duo which had recorded and toured from 2000.
It was produced by Machine with post-production work by David Singleton and Robert Fripp allowing for the inclusion of additional elements and edits prior to...

"When the Double Trio line of Fripp, Belew, Levin, Mastelotto, Bruford, and Gunn wanted to develop new material at the end of the THRAK-era in 1997 they broke down into smaller groups, a process which Fripp dubbed fraKctalisation.
This resulted in a series of different groupings which were called The ProjeKcts – resulting in a series of releases now gathered on the Heaven & Earth boxed set.
When the individual players regrouped as King Crimson the band was now a double duo consisting of...

Special price! Albert King was one of the great electric bluesmen. This 1969 Stax album has him performing songs associated with early Elvis, most of which Elvis adapted from their original, blues roots anyway, so it's a good fit and King brings...

Guitarist and vocalist Albert King is one of the major influences on modern blues and rock guitarists – his style has influenced players from Eric Clapton to Otis Rush to Stevie Ray Vaughn.
He played guitar left-handed, without re-stringing the guitar from the right-handed setup; this "upside-down" playing accounts for his difference in tone, since he pulls down on the same strings that most players push up on when bending the blues notes!
This is a relatively short (30’), very high quality....

"20 of his best tracks collected here. This is actually a collection of his singles (he made only singles until 1969 - any albums before then were just collections of singles) from 1966-1974, which is considered to be his best period. Obviously since...

"In the early 1970s, B.B. King was basking in the glow of crossover success, with his brand of soulful blues reaching all audiences, not just African-American ones. In this 75-minute radio broadcast from October 1, 1972, his stinging guitar runs through a mix of old and new classics, from his mid-'50s R&B hit "Everyday I Have the Blues" to Leon Russell's "Hummingbird." Other highlights include the standard "Rock Me Baby" and his biggest hit, "The Thrill Is Gone." It's presented here in its entirety, with...

"Prolific drummer/composer Dave King is well known for his propulsive work in a number of different bands. From The Bad Plus to Happy Apple to Halloween, Alaska, each group has its own sound and approach, but all are approached in a steadfast manner. These groups are all serious units of focused players who are completely dialed in, honing a solid band sound and identity. It is King s attraction to a strong group concept that led to his creation of his Trucking Company band and his increasing focus...

This is a new group by the drummer of The Bad Plus and it's quite a lineup: Erik Fratzke - guitar, Dave King - drums, Adam Linz - bass, Chris Speed - tenor saxophone. Very cool to see the under-valued Chris Speed land this high profile gig and the...

“Ray Davies travelled to Los Angeles in April 1969, to negotiate an end to the American Federation of Musicians' ban on The Kinks from performing in the US. The group's management quickly made plans for a North American tour, to help restore their standing in the states. Before their return, the band recorded their next album, Arthur (Or the Decline and Fall of the British Empire). As with the group's previous two records, Arthur was grounded in characteristically English lyrical and musical hooks. A...

"2018 release from the prog rock supergroup, arriving 13 years after the band's much-loved debut Picture back in 2005. The album sees John Mitchell (It Bites, Lonely Robot) and Pete Trewavas (Marillion) teaming up once more, with Craig Blundell (Steven Wilson) on drums and John Beck (It Bites) guesting on keyboards.
Recorded at the end of 2017, writing began at the end of that Summer. "We actually began the writing process in late August" says John Mitchell. "Pete had a few tunes and so did I, and...

Like Raymond Scott at around the same time, Kirby's music was unusually virtuosic and quietly avant-garde. Conditionally tremendously recommended.

"John Kirby led a most unusual group during the height of the big-band era, a sextet comprised of trumpeter Charlie Shavers, clarinetist Buster Bailey, altoist Russell Procope, pianist Billy Kyle, drummer O'Neil Spencer, and his own bass. Although Shavers and Bailey could be quite extroverted, the tightly arranged ensembles tended to be very cool...

“Previously unreleased recording from the legendary multi- instrumentalist Roland Kirk. Kirk's influence and following reaches far beyond Jazz. Hendrix idolized him and it's easy to see why.
His appetite for ripping up the rulebook has brought kudos and admirers from all sides, giving him a status and respect that ensures an unearthed, never before
