A great archival release from Garden of Delights, this captures the band live at a High School gymnasium on September 23rd, 1971 as recorded by Radio Bremen, not long after the release of their 2nd album, Embryo's Rache. This catches them sort of in be...

The definitive edition of this is studio album from 1972, with Christian Burchard-percussion, Edgar Hoffman-soprano sax/violin, David King-bass & Sigi Schwab-guitars. On it you can hear them between their early Krautrock phase & their soon to be fusion...

2004 release from this long lived German band who continue to make really good records and really were the ones who invented the idea of being a 'world music band' years before anyone else, by going to 'exotic' locales and touring the world, jamming wi...

Embryo are famous for their excursions into world music and collaborations with musicans from all over the globe, but this, their very first album, originally released on the Ohr label, is a stone classic Krautrock album.
This includes 2 bonus tracks from the same basic period, which adds nearly 30' of playing time to the album! If you don't already have this, then you need this one.

Rache was a the second Embryo album, originall released in 1971. This moves away from the psychedelic krautrock sound of their first and into more original territory. This includes 2 bonus tracks.

This is a real favorite of mine and has been out of print on CD for many years, so it is a great pleasure to see it available again!
After recording several albums in the early 1970's, from late 1971 to late 1972 Embryo recorded two albums of jammy rock/jazz fusion, which their then current label refused to release because they thought that the band's 'rock' output had more commercial potential. So the band sold the rights to Brain, who put them out and where they were rightly greeted as classics!...

"The seventh Embryo LP, recorded in the summer of 1974, has a distinct funk touch. The title has nothing to do with surfing or surf music but refers to the musicians' traveling from gig to gig. "Surfin" is often considered one of the weakest and most...

Christian Burchard (voc, vib), Roman Bunka (voc, g), Butze Fischer (dr), Michael Wehmeyer (key), Uve Müllrich (b). Nearly all never-before released live recordings!

"From 1975 until 1978, Embryo played at the Vlotho ”Umsonst und draußen” festival every year. Their concert from July 1977 on the sports ground, figuring as festival site, in front of about 26,000 people was recorded professionally by Ulrich Wilkening, operating the soundboard.
The recording has been preserved till this day....

Never-before heard or released live show by Embryo, which finds them still in their rock/jazz-rock phase and this is great. Excellent live bootleg sound; it won't win any awards, but it's perfectly listenable and it smokes, with some really fine...

A GREAT idea and pretty sympathetic to each other's style, although I think this generally sounds a little closer to Embryo than NNCK. Includes a 24 page booklet. "New York mavericks No-Neck Blues Band and Munich-based Krautrock band Embryo explore the...

This was the band's third and final release and was released only on cassette in an edition of 79 copies, amazingly enough. This is live recordings from 1980/81 and includes a long interview with band member Michel Meyer. Another great, thorough G.O.D....

"Emtidi have become known mainly through their LP "Saat" which was released on the Pilz label in 1972. Back in 1970, a very small edition of their firstling, called simply "Emtidi", had appeared on the small Thorofon label. While there is to be heard...

"Being in Berlin at the time, they soon caught the attention of of the enthusiastic Rolf-Ulrich Kaiser who signed them up for his 'new German folk music label" Pilz. The album Saat was a truly progressive folk masterpiece, with the beautiful 'English' vocals of Dolly Homes and occasionally the contrastingly Teutonic voice of Maik...

Hmmmm...Eno, Moebius & Roedelius...that would make this.... The second of two releases by Cluster and Eno, released in 1978, this follows onward from their classic first album. Nice to have this classic spacey/ambient album generally available again. This was recorded when Eno's star was at its zenith.

"The famous lost Exmagma album finally on the loose! What a long strange trip it has been... As one of the hand-selected chosen few who own a tape copy for a couple of years, it’s as much a great joy as it is a relief to live to see a proper (though 3 decades delayed) release of the masterpiece of one of the most inventive Krautbands and one of Konrad Plank’s best ever production jobs.
If you’ve ever seen the band on stage you knew that the problem with the two Exmagma releases always was...

Exmagma were a mostly instrumental crazy German jazz/rock trio of Thomas Baluff (organ & piano), Andy Goldner (guitar, bass, alto sax) and Fred Braceful (drums).
They recorded two albums, including this very rare and quite strange 1st album (this one) that I never saw until it was reissued many, many years later. This one had elements of fusion, but was really quite whacked, and which got them on the Nurse With Wound List.
By the way, their original name was Magma, and then they found out about..

They recorded two albums, including a very rare and quite strange 1st album and their 2nd (this one), more progressive fusion album, which I've always been extremely fond of, and which, 'strangely', was only released in France (and on Richard Pinhas' Urus label to boot)!

NOTE: New, sealed copy. Has very slightly dinged upper right corner. It's not too bad, just not perfect, so we knocked $10.00 dollars off.

"The first LP of Faithful Breath, ”Fading Beauty” from 1974, has meanwhile become a classic of symphonic rock and can definitely be recommended. In 1977/1978 they recorded their second album ”Back on my hill” - again including the mellotron - which was released only in 1980, on the Sky label. The long track on the flip side has been played in keeping...

Faust are a rightly legendary experimental German ensemble from the early 1970's. This is almost all of their two posthumous albums which feature the unreleased "Faust V" album and their recordings before they dissolved in the 70's.

This contains their great 1973 Top Gear performance and a substantial amount of extra material, and even two outtakes from their albums, all of which have never been released!. If you don't have the box set already, then you need this! [ReR]

The classic 1st album by Faust. Upon its release in 1971, it really looked and SOUNDED like nothing else. Intelligent and crafty use of the studio in a way that no one else in rock other than Frank Zappaa was doing (and it sounds nothing like The Mothers).
While I actually *enjoy* some of their other works more, none of their other albums were as radical and shocked the scene as much as this one. As the man in England who owns the label would say, "recommended!"

This is a beautiful reproduction of the strikingly amazing-looking first edition of the first Faust album. A clear disc inside a clear sleeve with a silkscreen, as well as a clear insert with print! Nothing like this was ever seen before Faust did it; as a English friend of a friend once said when talking about iconic avant-garde releases, "Faust was FIRST, mate!"

"Faust's new album Fresh Air differs in several respects from its predecessor, Just Us. The recordings were made at Jean-Hervé Péron's rehearsal studio in Schiphorst in northern Germany, hypnotic pieces with the kind of noisemaking the band is known for. For the new album, Péron and Werner "Zappi" Diermaier were looking for communication with musician friends and the audience. The tracks were recorded in changing ensembles at changing locations in the USA (during a tour in 2016). In these community...
