Garden of Delights

Irish Coffee are from Aalst in Flanders, the Dutch speaking northern part of Belgium. They are regarded - and quite right so - as the best progressive band of their country. Already in 1971 the band released their one and only LP. It was copied and...

An extremely rare 1974 jazz/rock album featuring saxes, keyboards, guitar, bass and drums that I had never even heard of before. In addition to the original album, almost 40' of unreleased live stuff has been added in. The live stuff is only of pretty....

A legitimate reissue of this great spacey, psychedelic album from 1972. A duo perform, & the final result is lots of guitars, flute, electric piano and old synthesizers & percussion plus some additional instrumentation, & lots of creepy spoken recitation. This is a CLASSIC!

"Kalacakra's blend of mantras, blues, folk and stoned psychedelia gained Crawling To.

"Langsyne from Barmen played some sophisticated English-language psych-folk with a large variety of partly exotic instruments like the psaltery, koto, glockenspiel, banjo, flute, slide guitar, or the Jew's harp. Their only LP was released in 1976, as...

"Live from Gevelsberg (Sauerland) played art-rock with flute; without the nerve-wracking breaks often heard in this genre, but rather harmonious. In 1974, they released a 7" single and recorded an LP which, however, didn’t come out at that time. Only...

"The six musicians from Oberhausen released their only LP in 1978. Symphonic rock. The LP "Fly away" was released in two different covers: initially (and that’s the version of this CD) with the legendary bull-headed creature from ancient Crete and, subsequently, with a rather plain airplane. The overall circulation was 1000 copies. The six musicians from Oberhausen played symphonic rock in the style of early Genesis or Yes, which, at a time when punk rock hit the scene, was a bit outdated and bound to...

Previously unreleased live concert in fantastic sound, recorded September 2, 1974 by Radio Bremen. Missus Beastly went through a lot of stylistic and personnel changes during their career, and this set of very, very good and much more 'out' jazz/rock d...

First-ever vinyl reissue of the third Missus Beastly album. After their great, self-titled, Gorilla-adorned, Germany jazz/rock classic second album, there were a lot of changes in personnel, with more and more overlap with the musicians of Embryo, but the quality of the band and their work remained high.

"Dr. Aftershave and the Mixed-Pickles was Missus Beastly�s third album, which once more presented some mostly instrumental, solid jazz rock. It was at the same time the first album to be released.

Hot damn, I've been waiting for a legit release of this on CD for about 15 years!! This is a great jazz-rock album from 1974, with a line-up that includes two reeds, keyboards...

"An inventive progressive fusion band, with a notable debt to Kraan, Aera and nods to Munju, Missus Beastly and Secret Oyster."-The Crack In The Cosmic Egg

"Morpheus from the Warburg and Kassel area played instrumental jazz-rock, also called fusion. They released their only LP ”Rabenteuer”, which is meanwhile very expensive, in 1976.
They re-united again later, and in 2002 they performed at the well-known Herzberg festival, almost with the original line-up. Their very relaxed CD, ”For a...

"The group from Winnenden near Stuttgart started as Nyrvana Pancake and released a very good psychedelic 7“ single in 1973. In 1974, they shortened their band name into Pancake, and instead of psychedelia they now played symphonic rock. The first...

"Pancake from Winnenden near Stuttgart in Suabia emerged from their psychedelic predecessor Nyrvana Pancake in 1974 and now played progressive rock with clear symphonic tendencies. With changing members they released three LPs with self-written tracks...

"Panko from West Berlin - not to be confused with the much later GDR band Pankow - are somewhat reminiscent of Xhol Caravan or the early Embryo. They mostly presented long jazzy instrumental passages dominated by the transverse flute and alto saxophone, temporarily interrupted by mainly English vocals and some follies.

The band existed from the late sixties until the end of 1972. During their lifetime, the group didn't release anything, although they would have had the potential to do so....

“Pentagon was the first group on the small Munich label German Blues and Underground, which later on also released the two Siloah records. Their 7” single was supposed to be followed by an LP, but it never got beyond the dubplate/acetate stage! A music cassette, however, was released, the simple cover of which was used for the LP cover, too.

This is the sort of thing that Garden of Delights do so delightfully well; this is a previously unreleased album by a basically unknown outfit from 1975 who were a local, underground / experimental German outfit. But not only do you get the album, which was never released anyway, you get 20' of bonus live tracks. Yow.

Typically thorough and well done Garden of Delights release of an exceedingly obscure and rare stoner folk album from 1970, with a history of the band, rare photos and documentation and more.

It came out as CD on Musea in 1995. At the end of 1971, Tetragon recorded in a Hamburg studio five long tracks in their well-proven style for their second LP, the release of which, however, failed.

Thors Hammer came from Copenhagen, the Danish capital. Their music was a jazzy progressive rock with English lyrics. Their one and only LP was released in 1971 and holds the sad record of being the most bootlegged LP in Denmark. Until now it can be found as CD editions on three illegal labels (Walhalla, Crystal Emporium Productions, and Won-Sin), and as an illegal LP reprint. All these editions were made up very poorly. This is the first legal lp reprint."

“Tin Pan Alley were founded in Baden-Württemberg in 1978. They played progressive rock in the style of the early 1970s. The band’s mastermind was their singer and bassist, Ernst Sinn.
In 1981, they went to the Ege-Sound-Studio in Bad Schussenried, which was also used for recordings by acts like Anyone’s Daughter, Kraan, McOil, and Eric Burdon. That’s where Tin Pan Alley recorded four tracks (45’) as a demo tape they subsequently sent to about 15 to 20 labels. The attempts, however, were not...
