Garden of Delights

Typically thorough reissue on Garden of Delights of the exceedingly rare (only 150 made) self-released 1969 album by a trio of organ/piano/trumpet/vocals, bass and drums. Obviously very influenced by The Nice and perhaps to a lesser extent early Soft M...

Rare, self-released symphonic-oriented progressive rock featuring guitar, flute, organ/mellotron/electric piano, bass, drums & vocals. ''Overall, Troya's sound was melancholic and lyrical -- classical influenced progressive folk rock, comparable to ban...

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."

First ever CD reissue of this heavy rock album 1975, reissued with an 11 minute bonus track. "Raw and hard-edged blues-rock from the German-speaking part of Switzerland. The original LP is a very rare collector's item. The band was living in England at...

This obscure group made an excellent album in the garage-underground-progressive" genre way back in 1971. Vinegar could be ranked along with Mammut as one of the most important examples of such bands. For your amusement, here's a closer look at their f...

Previously unreleased live recording in quite good sound for the time period (April 28th, 1973) by this band who started their life as a cross between Krautrock and spacerock, but, by this time, had metamorphosed into a more hard-rock/progressive style...

"Virus, from the Bielefeld area in Westphalia, were the best and most famous local progressive group in the early seventies. In 1970, they won the well-known competition in the Recklinghausen Vestlandhalle – still under their old name of Man’s World....

"This CD edition has been provided with two bonus tracks, which are now to be heard on a Virus CD for the very first time. The 32-page booklet leaves nothing to be desired."

"For their second album, Virus changed radically, in both band...

A reissue from the master tapes (and with two bonus tracks thrown in as well) of an extremely rare underground German lp from 1971 that included Eddy Marron (going under the classic nom-de-plume of 'Ed Ugly-Ugly'), who later was in Dzyan. Marron plays...

Waniyetula are best known, if at all, for releasing an album in 1983 that has been compared to mid 70s symphonic greats like Yes, Grobschnitt, etc. at a time when there wasn't a lot of that coming out on the marketplace at all! These studio and live re...

"Xhol’s sound was a mix of jazz-rock and psychedelia. The band from Wiesbaden and former Xhol Caravan stood out for their pretty lengthy improvisations holding barely any vocals. The band became quite well-known with their two LPs released on Ohr...

Xhol were one of the earliest Krautrockers, releasing their 1st (this) in 1969, which is reissued on vinyl for the first time in over 50 years! A must own for fans of Krautrock, these guys were unknown & undiscovered until the recent Krautrock revival & are still underappreciated.
Includes an insanely massive LP-sized 68-page deluxe booklet, with hand numbering on the back cover.

Now the band is perfo

Well, this is really something - and who else would bring us a German rarity like this but Garden of Delights? Xhol were one of the earliest Krautrockers, releasing only 2 albums in their lifetime. A must own for fans of Krautrock, these guys were unkn...

"Yggdrasil from Munich named themselves after the world ash or yew tree of the Germanic tribes and played progressive rock of a calmer nature, with flute, violin, and English lyrics. They are hardly known, as their own LP, recorded in the Robert...

A very full & lush symphonic rock styled album, heavy on the keyboards, from this five piece of vocals, guitars, synths/piano/organs/mellotron, bass & drums. Having formed in 1971, they finally got their shot at immortality in 1977 with this, their one...
