This soundtrack is one of the group's best known works to the general public and also one of the most influential in general (Zombi, anyone?)

'The term "soundtrack" is at times used loosely, and this is the case here. While Tangerine Dream's music of course appears in the movie (which happens to be a little gem itself), the album is reworked quite a bit, and stands very much on it own. In spite of this, or perhaps as an uninteded result, the 1981 "Thief" album is the best soundtrack TD ever made...

“A superb collection of rare early tracks from electronic pioneers Tangerine Dream! Features 2 tracks from the '60s psych-rock band that preceded Tangerine Dream, The Ones, plus rare tracks from the early '70s era of the band when they were at their most adventurous, composing epic pieces that clocked in at over 10 minutes each such as "Asteroid Agenda" and "Overture!"”
1. The Ones - Lady Greengrass (7" Single 1967)
2. The Ones - Love of Mine (7" Single 1967)
3. Oszillator Planet Concert..

“David Janssen is best known for his work as Ted The Loaf in Renaldo & The Loaf. When the band split up in 1987 after The Elbow is Taboo, Janssen took a long break from music until his return in 2006 as The Darkening Scale. After the first two solo albums under this name, he started a new collaboration with Sylvie Walder as The Tapeworm Vessel. This project produced three albums, the first one being Twelve Atmospheres which is now available on CD for the first time. It was originally released in 2008...

“This previously unreleased album by the Horace Tapscott Quintet was unearthed from master tapes in the Flying Dutchman archives. Recorded in 1969 and was intended to be a follow-up album to the classic 'The Giant Is Awakened' which was released that year.
The iconic pianist and composer Horace Tapscott was one of the most unique and important figures in LA’s jazz worl

“Silvia Tarozzi and Deborah Walker have emerged as one of the most interesting duos in contemporary improvised music. First introduced to Unseen Worlds through their performance on the Philip Corner recording "Extreemizms: early & late", Tarozzi and Walker elevated recent recordings, Eliane Radigue "Occam Ocean 3", Pascal Criton "Infra", and Tarozzi's own "Mi specchio e rifletto" to greatness. Their finely tuned sound makes even the most adventurous tones compelling.

"One of the most captivatingly versatile pianists to emerge from Polish music academia in recent years, Grzegorz Tarwid is as influenced by Brian Eno’s earliest ambient adventures and the eclectic rhythmic hustle of the ultra-hip Ugandan Nyege Nyege scene as he is steeped in the traditions of East European and Scandinavian jazz. Initially honing his chops under the tutelage of Polish piano maestros such as Wojciech...

Third album by this relatively well known Finnish progressive rock band with fusion flourishes. This is from 1972. Their singer is kinda a love 'em or hate 'em kinda singer. I have actually grown to be fond of him in a odd way, but he's definitely odd!
This includes two bonus tracks that were only released on a single in the same period as well as new interviews included.

“On Lambertland they moved more into progressive fusion realms, sounding like a cross between mid period Traffic and...

“Tasavallan Presidentti, along with Wigwam, were Finland’s top export act in the days of the first wave of progressive rock in the early seventies. Svart Records have, in co-operation with the band members, prepared new editions of these classic records on, for the ages.
Originally released on Love Records in 1974 and subsequently licensed to many foreign labels, Milky Way Moses was Tasavallan Presidentti’s last album of the classic seventies era, the band ending their career for the time being not...

“In 1973 progressive rock group Tasavallan Presidentti's career was going forward on a high note: the band had in 1972 released the critically acclaimed album Lambertland with their new vocalist Eero Raittinen, and the following year the band embarked on a successful UK tour.
In 1974 things would take a downward turn which ended in the band splitting up, but what this compilation offers you is a snapshot of the year 1973 when everything still seemed possible. The band were returning home from the...

“Tasavallan Presidentti's 1st incarnation with vocalist Frank Robson performed their last studio session at YLE Broadcasting Company in Helsinki, 1971. This session was, however, completely buried by time and forgotten, until Svart Records accidentally stumbled upon an archival copy.
This studio session recording from the autumn of 1971, found from the archives of the Finnish Broadcasting Company, is a sensational discovery in many ways. It is a studio live session which the band recorded just before..

“‘Cheerful’ starts out with Lindsjö’s clean guitar tones riding on Strid’s rhythmically probing structures. Küchen’s sax starts out inquiringly with clean tones which increase in intensity, reaching full skronk by the 2 minute mark and blazing through to the end of the piece. ‘Grinning’ finds the group dynamics more active early in the track, with the trio quickly establishing their relationships and direction. Lindsjö hits the overdrive pedal shortly after the initial passages, while Strid provides a....

"The long-running improvisers who trained their expressions at the improvisation performance site believed in the new possibilities at the end of the improvisation and gave a name of "super improvisation". There, improvisation and composition melt at unlimitedly high dimensions, and the unified world is expanding. Super supernatural composition that super transformation improves.

Great to see a second release from this excellent Polish band who ply the avant/progressive new music waters with a thoroughly original sound and who burst on the scene with their fine debut, Parts Of The Entirety.

This new one was professionally recorded live in front of an audience and it consists of all new compositions.

As before, the band consists of guitarist, composer and arranger Grzegorz Lesiak, tenor saxophonist Tomasz Piqtek, bassist Lukasz Downar, and drummer Krzysztof...

This is a compilation of live performances of mostly improvised materials by a large number of musicians as guests. Don’t start here, but if you are already aware of how great these guys are, it’s very worthwhile!

“A grand reunion of sorts in Berlin on the first day of November, 1996. Under the auspices of Free Music Production, Cecil Taylor, the great pianist and one of the premier musical minds of the 20th century, joined forces with his early comrade, drummer Sunny Murray, for a set of improvised duets.

“This may be the straightest record Cecil Taylor ever recorded, but it is far from uninspiring. Despite its hopelessly gauche cover -- one can only presume Taylor had no say-so in the choice of artwork used -- Taylor's approach to three Cole Porter tunes with a trio and three of his own with a quintet is a lively combination, and one which, in lieu of his..

"Capturing the groundbreaking Cecil Taylor Unit's second set at the Power Center, Michigan State University at Ann Arbor, on Thursday, April 15th 1976, this document was recorded for broadcast on WCBN-FM's Jazz Alive program.

Fred Taylor is a Seattle-based drummer who released this album on vinyl privately in 1981.

In addition to Fred there are 11 other players who play on one or more pieces on this album, but the basic line-up for most of the album is piano/Fender.

This is a beautifully packaged and presented album of a bit noisy and extremely cool ambient music. This was recorded in a single live performance in Madison, WI in 2006.

“Journeys are often recounted as though composed of a starting point, a goal, and an intervening distance-when that is often only half the story. What of the path between the destination and the point of origin, dotted with sights one didn't take in and courses that strayed from the known path? The return can be more circuitous, full of sideways steps and stop-offs at the distracting attractions once passed by on the way. Divagate provides the final segment of the trilogy begun by Gregory Taylor with...
