"The first live DVD release of Oliver Wakeman (with a CD of the same live recordings), the oldest son of Rick Wakeman (Yes), one of the best keyboard players in the history of progressive rock. "Coming To Town - Live in Katowice" DVD - an extraordinary...

"Live performance with the Philharmonic Orchestra in 1975, plus documentary of the tour featuring recently discovered footage. This spectacular 94-minute concert was recorded live with the Melbourne Philharmonic Orchestra in 1975, at...

"Esoteric Recordings are pleased to announce an official release of Rick Wakeman's live concert with the Orchestra Della Svizzera Italiana, in Lugano, Switzerland on the 2nd July 2009, where he performed strictly on the grand piano.
This event was the perfect setting for Wakeman s classically inspired compositions to be performed, including The King Arthur Suite, Journey to the Centre of the Earth and Catherine Howard . With an orchestra conducted and arranged by Guy Protheroe, the Lugano concert...

"This DVD features Rick Wakeman in an up-close and uproarious stand-up performance filmed live in front of a studio audience. The ‘Grumpy’ rock legend, composer and raconteur exposes a host of hilarious anecdotes and unknown escapades experienced...

"Gastank was an English television show that aired between 1982–1983 in the United Kingdom on Channel 4. Hosted by former Yes keyboardist Rick Wakeman, the show featured a mix of interviews with 1970s musicians and impromptu performances where the guest artist would join Wakeman and his house band in playing re-arranged versions of their classic songs, or entirely new pieces created for the show.
The format was very informal, with the setting likened to a bar where Wakeman would interview the guest...

I'm a big Weather Report fan of their earlier period, although after a certain point, they lose me a little bit (but then again, most fusion going into the late 70s loses me a bit). But this is an wonderful archival release (released for the very first...

All I can say is, "oh, my, god". This stupendous DVD, probably filmed in mid 1971 and recorded for Beat Club TV (only a very small portion of the set was broadcast in August, 1971) features a great line up of Weather Report (Alphonze Mouzon-drums, Dom...

This represents in my mind the very last great era of this great band.

"By September of 1978 Weather Report's headlining status afforded them the opportunity to play a very long set amounting to two hours in length. Given the previous year's success with the poll winning "Heavy Weather" album one might have expected them to concentrate on this more or less exclusively, but instead, fans were treated to material from right across the bands career and solo spots by everybody. "Black Market" opens...

This is a live, high quality, black and white pro-shot, *rockin'* and *sweaty* performance by one of the greatest of the original jazz/rock bands, recorded at what is for me their absolute peak.
There's no information on the box at all, but this is obviously from the master tapes. I did a little digging and I am fairly certain that this was recorded September 25, 1972.
The band is the same band that did their brilliant "Live In Tokyo" release:
Eric Gravatt - Drums
Dom Um Romao...

When I went to London in 1977, I saw the Mike Westbrook Brass Band play on the street and they were amazing. I came back from that trip a huge fan and tried to find as much as I could by this great British composer and musician - one of the original...

This is two shows of previously unreleased material by one of the greatest rock band of the 1960s. The 1977 Kilburn show was filmed by Jeff Stein for his great Who film "The Kids Are Alright" and a bit of it appears in that movie, but this is the complete concert performance, remixed and remastered in surround sound. This was the last-ever performance by The Who with Keith Moon.

The second show is of lesser quality but even better, as it captures them during their absolute peak years (1965-1970).

Excellent collection of rare live stuff, promo films, tv appearances (lip synced and actually live), etc etc etc. fro the earliest days in 1965 to when I stopped caring. For me, this is worth it for their 1967 appearance on Beat Club alone, where they...

Anyone who knows me knows that I just love the Who's music from the 1960's to the early 70's. This fantastic document captures them 8/30/70 in front of over 600,000 people just a bit after their absolute peak of their powers, but while they are still t...

"After the impressive debut album released in January 2016, a quick return return by The Winstons – Enrico Gabrielli / Roberto Dell’Era / Lino Gitto – was expected… but not on such a short notice! The trio’s critics and audience response has been unexpected indeed, and generally extremely positive: seems like the band’s mix of Canterbury (Soft Machine in the first place) and psychedelic sounds (The Doors and The Beatles among all) contained in The Winstons’ self-titled debut record was actually very...

Another case where I suppose this doesn't really 'belong' here, but look: Despite making a few cheesy records, Johnny was an unbelievably masterful blues/rock and slide guitar player, especially in the period mostly covered here (the early 1970s) and...

You get both the audio and the video of this performance. Good idea! "Praise be to Pink Flag for pushing the boat out on this one: film-maker Tom Gidley's record of Wire's Triptych Festival gig at Tramway was a big outlay, but one viewing of the goods ...

The latest in a huge, ongoing number of project by drummer/bandleader Tatsuya Yoshida. They are a all-improvising group and this features a pretty amazing, modern Japan Rock all-star lineup: Tatsuya Yoshida : drums (Ruins, Koenji Hyakkei, Korekyojinn, etc
