Robert Reed of Magenta and his various pals pays homage to his biggest influence & inspiration, Mike Oldfield.

“The Tubular All Stars are a collection of musicians who have either played alongside, or have been influenced by, Mike Oldfield, have come together to record some of Oldfield’s music. These include Barry Palmer, who sang on the European hit ‘Crime Of Passion’, Les Penning who played on the Christmas hit ‘In Dulci Jubilo’, and the original Tubular Bells producer Tom Newman...

Released on Rob Reed’s Tigermoth imprint, Rob’s been dancing around ‘re-dos and inspired bys’ of Tubular Bells for some time now and I guess he finally just decided to DO IT!

“The music from a brand new recording of Tubular Bells with over 35 musicians, many of whom played with Mike Oldfield including Rick Fenn, Phil Spalding, Alasdair Malloy, Steve Hillage, Jay Stapley, Les Penning and Jon Field.
The music, which is based on the original 1973 version, will be released as a double CD...

I was lucky enough to see these folks at ProgDay 2023 and they were really great. As a friend who also saw them there said, “It’s a ProjeKct band without using that name”, and I firmly agree. Fans of KC, Yang, Stick Men, etc will enjoy this!

“Saadet Türköz's Influences spread far and wide. Born in 1961, the singer grew up on the Bosporus where Europe and Asia meet. Her ancestors were nomads who migrated from Semey to Kazakhstan to East Turkestan from where they fled via India and Pakistan to Istanbul. But Istanbul, international city, modern metropolis and history-laden cultural crucible, is not the only place to be influenced.

Where did rock 'n' roll exactly begin? No one can definitively say, but certainly the proto rock/R&B tracks collected here have as much right to claim being the beginning as anything out there! Joe and band rock 'n' stomp 'n' burn!...

"Excellent, jumpin’ late 50s r’n’b from his pre-Tina days."

“Izear Luster ""Ike"" Turner Jr. (died 2007) was an American musician, bandleader, songwriter, arranger, talent scout, and record producer. An early pioneer of 1950s rock and roll, he is best known for his work in the 1960s and 1970s with his then-wife Tina Turner as the leader of the Ike & Tina Turner Revue.
A native of Clarksdale, Mississippi, Turner began playing piano and guitar as a child and then formed the Kings of Rhythm..

"The return of the thunder rider! Hawkwind co-founder Nik Turner teleports back to Earth for this album featuring guest appearances by Hawkwind alumni! Includes the emotional single "End Of The World" with former Hawkwind/Pink Fairies member Paul Rudolph, the spacey "Why Are You?" and other tracks that feature powerhouse violinst Simon House (Hawkwind/David Bowie/Third Ear Band). Turner plays saxophones, flute, sings and is a composer. While with Hawkwind, Turner was known for his experimental free jazz...

“Brand new album, now available on CD for the first time, from the legendary producer who has teamed up with the equally illustrious former Hawkwind member. This fearless Space Rock meets Motorick Komishe Psyche masterpiece first saw the light of day at Glastonbury 2017 and 2019, invited by snooker legend and prog rock obsessive Steve Davis to create an all star jam session hinged around Hawkwind founder Nik Turner and ably assisted by various ex members of Hawkwind and focused through the psychedelic...

Turning Point was the mid /late 70s band led by bassist Jeff Clyne, formed after he and keyboardist Brian Miller left Isotope after Isotope's first album (incidently, Brian had written ALL the material for that first Isotope album!). Adding vocalist Pepi Lemer, saxist Dave Tidball (saxes) and Paul Robinson (drums), they came up with their own jazz-rock sound and created two albums which are reissued here for the very first time and it's nice to such fusion obscurities once again visible and done so well!...

"By embedding both new age and noise-oriented electronic themes into his pastoral pieces, Turnquist unites disparate traditions and ideals, essentially employing sonic counterweights to construct 57 minutes that are as surprisingly dynamic as they are perfectly beautiful."-PITCHFORK (8.2)

“A whole batch of reviews ranging from enthusiastic to ecstatic, and I agree with virtually every word of them. Turrentine was an absolute master of his horn, with a blues feeling inherent, and absolutely natural, in everything he played. A most beautiful ballad player and a man capable of playing at length without ever flagging or becoming boring, he had a rich, full tone and a natural swing. In..

"This is a just a great album to listen to. Weird and wonderful music, executed with joy and precision. There's a lot of power in this music, but it's delivered with such frivolous confidence that you barely notice there's a giant in the room. And as...

"Have You Ever Been...? explores and celebrates the legacy of guitar rock icon Jimi Hendrix in grand TIQ style. At the peak of his creative powers in the late 1960s, Jimi Hendrix redefined the potential of not only the guitar but the entire genre of rock. Armed with an unprecedented combination of technical skills and compositional insight, he drew a blueprint that continues to challenge guitarists in particular and musicians of all stripes...

"Curiously, the Norwegian prog-folkies’ fifth album – their “first for (and with) children”– comes recommended to fans of Van der Graaf and Crimson, so it’s something of a shock to encounter a set of proglite Euro-ditties featuring an Oslo school kiddie choir. The title means Urban Wildlife but the three men dressed in squirrel, badger and crow outfits on the cover should’ve warned something gruesome was afoot. The band say the (Norwegian-sung) lyrics for the two school musicals here are attacking the...

“Norway’s most far-out and unique prog band is back! This album is not for the faint of heart. Like some great Babylonian harlot, the sinfully sweet sounds held within this record will deny no one, but they extract a great price! There will be no turning back should you proceed on this wretched path and cut your way through the thickets so green, for the path is fraught with danger and temptation. Proceed and you might find yourself sucked off, as it were, to a strange fairyland where every bush and...

“A band blessed with an abundance of ideas and spectacular musicianship, Fact And Fiction should have been the album that catapulted Twelfth Night to greatness… it is chock-full of exciting, stimulating and emotive material… there’s an aggression and sense of purpose that sets Twelfth Night apart from most of their predecessors.”-PROG Magazine – the Albums That Saved Prog.

Smiling At Grief was recorded at Woodcray Manor Farm Studios, Berkshire in November 1981, and released on cassette in 1982.

“TWELFTH NIGHT’s 1982 Smiling At Grief album was the first music released with new vocalist, Geoff Mann. With the 40th anniversary arriving in 2022, it was decided to celebrate Smiling At Grief by releasing a ‘brand-new’ version, by

"Few jazzmen from Portugal have the opportunity to play with foreign musicians like Portuguese trumpeter Luís Vicente. After collaborations with the brothers Théo and Valentin Ceccaldi, Johannes Bauer, Jorrit Dijkstra, Akira Sakata, Giovanni di Domenico, Jasper Stadhouders, Roberto Negro and Mette Rasmussen, among others, in “Live at Zaal 100” we find him in the company of the Amsterdam-based...

"In May 1972 Twenty Sixty Six And Then met first time and decided to found a band. Day and night they rehearsed and filed on their sound in their residence in Mannheim.
A journalist at that time wrote, "Dominating in their music is a dynamic, which is regulatory in the developing harmonies in the complex structured arrangements. When the musicians sometimes get lost in old hard rock stereotypes they kept enough distance to the sounds, to prove their intents with detailed inserted alienation." ...

This 70s, British, Canterbury-styled (and more) band, who released all their extent recordings on a limited, vinyl-only release in 2020 got a lot of attention due to the high quality of the music and just how hard it was to locate a copy! Finally it’s been released on CD with a nice, 18 page booklet with photos and information! Recommended.

“Sympathy for the Beast, the new album by Twink and the Technicolour Dream, is based on the wonderfully imaginative poetical works of Aleister Crowley, whose natural and intrinsic musical quality Twink and the Technicolour Dream have tried to intensify with their psychedelic musical drive, using sections of the original poems as lyrics for their songs or narrations for their musical backgrounds.

“After over two decades of musical collaboration and shared life, we are happy to finally present our first duo release. Recorded in intimate studio settings right before the pandemic, and then amended over the lockdown in our home studio.
Music is what brought us together in the first place, and it remains central in our shared life. We hope you enjoy our musical moments.”

Like the similarly obscure Sixty-Nine, Twogether were a keyboards/drums duo. This 1973 release is incredibly rare, basically unknown private pressing. Yet, as always, not only did Garden of Delights reissue this, but they include their non lp single. This is the complete recorded works by this band.

"The sound is astonishly dense and atmospheric thanks to the synthesizer they used. Well done and highly recommended."

A classic ESP release, recorded January 2, 1967. This is the second of Tyler's two ESP releases and is probably the more original and better of the two. Tyler was best known as a sideman to Albert Ayler, but this is an interesting album as it pits his alto sax against 3 string players: David Baker-cello, Brent McKesson-bass and Kent Brinkley-bass!

"This 1967 recording by the avant-garde saxophonist -- his second for ESP-Disk -- features Tyler on alto sax with accompaniment from David Baker...

"Highly inventive kraut / psych album (heavy on the “psych”) related to Eulenspygel. Originally released in 1975, “Sexphonie” offers a mix of acid-rock, hard-psych, polit-rock and progressive / folky sounds with some eastern influences. Great studio production and outstanding guitar playing courtesy of Teflon Fonfara (who once blew up Camel’s PA system with his tape and delay guitar effects!). Tyll was formed when Teflon was approached by Kerston Records with the intention of releasing a krautrock album...

"A reissue of Tyndall's Durch Die Zeiten, originally released in 1983. Having successfully released three albums, the Berlin-based electronic duo Tyndall fell out so badly with one another in 1983 that they ended up splitting the fourth album in two, taking a side each. Jürgen Krehan's half showcases his customarily nimble synth-pop, as well as several pieces influenced by classical music. Rudi Langer launches into celestial revelry on the other side, underpinned here and there by a driving beat...

"A reissue of Tyndall's third album, Reflexionen, originally released in 1982. The third Tyndall album is less experimental than the electronic duo's previous work from 1981 Traumland. The songs, featuring vocoder vocals, are more clearly structured into verses and choruses, the arrangements more considered. Stylistically, Reflexionen is a mix of synth-pop and electronic krautrock, at times not a million miles away from the early works of Andreas Dorau. More so than on their preceding instrumental...

"Tyndall's debut album, Sonnenlicht, originally released in 1980 on Sky Records. The two electronic sonic inventors Jürgen Krehan and Rudolf Langer founded Tyndall in the year 1980, naming their duo after a light scattering phenomenon in physics. Armed with an impressive array of instruments, devices, and home-made synthesizers, they created free and easy electronic music in the style of the Berlin School (Berliner Schule), much to the liking of the legendary Sky Records who released their debut album...

"A reissue of Tyndall's second album Traumland, originally released in 1981 on Sky Records. The electronic sonic inventors Tyndall pulled out all the stops for their second album. Armed with an impressive array of analog synthesizers, they unleashed the full force of their experimentalist ambitions, weaving synth pop, repetitive bass patterns, laminar sounds, and carefree melodies into a unique amalgam of the Düsseldorf and Berlin Schools. Traumland was released a year after their debut effort...

“In 1986 master trumpeter Freddie Hubbard was on stage at the "Fabrik" as a guest performer joining the trio of one of the leading pianists of contemporary jazz: McCoy Tyner, whose extremely powerful touch always added a highly energized percussive quality to his virtuous performance. McCoy Tyner passed away in March 2020. The recordings from 1986 (he was 58 back then) show him at...



Impulse! Is celebrating their 50th anniversary with several re-issues including a collection of “2-fers," two albums on one compact disc.

This includes the six Impulse albums:

“Also included as part of this collection, is a rare, previously unreleased recording of a jam session undertaken by members of John Coltrane's group in Munich in 1961, led by Eric Dolphy on bass clarinet and McCoy Tyner on piano. This unique and rarely heard recording also featured Reggie Workman on bass, Mel Lewis on drums.”...
