Mega Blowout Sale

The second album by Kansas, originally released in 1975. This is probably their most 'progressive rock album', with the long Incomudro (also found on the Proto-Kaw album) one of the highlights. Their unique blend of pure, complex progressive rock and A...

"This King Biscuit Flower Hour recording of their Valentine’s Day show in 1989 at the legendary Tower Theater in Upper Darby PA charts their prestigious career and marks their return as a driving force in American rock music. As their third live recording, it is a proud companion to Two for the Show from 1978 and 1992’s Live at the Whiskey affirming the second of three chapters that make up the history of Kansas (so far).
“Pennsylvania discovered Kansas long before any other state in the Union,”...

"Paul Kantner's debut solo album actually was credited to "Paul Kantner/Jefferson Starship," the first use of the "Starship" billing, predating the formation of the group with that name by four years. Kantner used it, extrapolating on the name of his...

"As lead guitarist for late '60s US psychedelic visionaries Spirit, Randy California needs no introduction to serious rock fans. This tremendous live set was recorded for the LA radio station KPFK in September 1972 -- the same month his wild solo debut, Kapt. Kopter and The (Fabulous) Twirly Birds, appeared -- and also features Larry "Fuzzy" Knight on bass and Spirit's legendary Ed Cassidy on drums. It captures them in blistering form on several cuts from that album, and features rare and wild....

Karuna Khyal's album Alomoni 1985, originally released on Voice Records around 1976, is widely acknowledged as years ahead of its time, preceding other Japanese underground experimental outfits such as Fushitsusha and White Heaven by almost 20 years...

"Quah -- Jorma Kaukonen's (guitar/vocal) solo debut effort -- was recorded and issued shortly after the dissolution of Jefferson Airplane in 1974. In contrast to the sonic indulgences of Grace Slick's Manhole or Paul Kantner and Jefferson Starship's Blows Against the Empire, Kaukonen retreated back to his folk-blues roots along with vocalist Tom Hobson -- who contributes to "Blue Prelude" and "Sweet Hawaiian Sunshine" -- to create this intricate acoustic masterwork. From the highly original artwork...

"This is a two-fer reissue of early '70s Japanese underground rock albums Love Suki Daikirai and Kirikyogen, featuring Kuni Kawachi & Flower Travelling Band. Recorded in 1970, the tone of Kirikyogen is cast in a shadow, and it seeps through the pores...

"Recorded and released after a two-year stint in Europe, Until marks alto saxophonist Robin Kenyatta's American debut as a leader, after sideman tenures with Sonny Stitt, Bill Dixon, and Archie Shepp. For anyone (of the few) who followed the rather obscure reedman's career, this set -- originally released on the Atlantic jazz subsidiary Vortex and produced by Joel Dorn -- is indicative of the restless nature of Kenyatta's career on his own records: he was not only interested in, but attempted to play...

Kerygmatic Project was born in 1998, created by Samuele Tadini, Danilo Nobili and Marco Campagnolo, with the purpose of composing original music that recover in style and construction the great British progressive rock tradition of the seventies and eighties, renewed tradition with a new key able to embrace different styles, so as to constitute an original sound well recognizable. The Kerygmatic Project compositions are affected, in fact, from the contributions of various genres taken by rock, pop, jazz...

“Excellent 1976 private press acoustic album, self-recorded at various places in Colorado, and filled with beautiful finger style acoustic guitar, plus some atonal bottleneck slide, string scrapes and drones (at times, very Ry Cooder / “Paris, Texas” about six years before that soundtrack existed). Although almost completely instrumental, what lyrics there are tend towards the dark and the satiric. The obvious points of comparison are John Fahey and Leo Kottke, although Scott Key certainly has his own...

"In the early 1970s, B.B. King was basking in the glow of crossover success, with his brand of soulful blues reaching all audiences, not just African-American ones. In this 75-minute radio broadcast from October 1, 1972, his stinging guitar runs through a mix of old and new classics, from his mid-'50s R&B hit "Everyday I Have the Blues" to Leon Russell's "Hummingbird." Other highlights include the standard "Rock Me Baby" and his biggest hit, "The Thrill Is Gone." It's presented here in its entirety, with...

Guitarist Kaki King started as a 'tapping guitarist', ala Michael Hedges, Preston Reed and (early) Richard Leo Johnson. She somehow got herself signed to SONY for a very short while, appearing on The Late Show and the like, although she was quickly...

“Stunning second album from this eclectic Dutch progressive band. Kingfisher Sky is masterminded by the husband and wife team of Ivar de Graaf (drums) and Judith Rijnveld (vocals). The band's lineup has changed a bit since Hallway Of Dreams but the...

Possibly England's greatest accordionist, this is a completely solo album. No tricks, no studio work. Just a man and his various squeezeboxes.

"In 1988 John Kirkpatrick recorded this solo album. It is an amazing album with the predictable talent of performance. There is a lovely atmosphere and mood on this album.
There are some great song choices here. All the tracks are Traditional except for a piece from Sue Harris, and three from Sally Turner. All of course arranged by Kirkpatrick...

“Eero Koivistoinen is one of the mainstays of jazz in his part of the world, a true elder statesman. Finland has some of the best trained musicians around who are completely aware of the jazz legacy, versed in modern harmony and ways of thinking. The album Hati Hati is what I consider a real hard-core contemporary jazz recording, without any concessions to popular culture or some of the excesses of the musical period we live in. There is a palpable sense of honesty, thought, experience and commitment...

"Svart Records continues the Eero Koivistoinen reissue program with this 1971 super-rarity. With Vesa-Matti Loiri, Seija Simola and Eero Raittinen on vocals. Koivistoinen’s children’s music album Muusa ja Ruusa was based on the poems of Kirsi Kunnas and released by the book publishing company WSOY. Although some of these songs were revisited in the 2000s on the Ville ja Valle album, the original album has never been reissued in any format. The moods on this 1971 range from pastoral calm to the...

For his 70th birthday, the great Finnish saxist Eero celebrated with this 2016 recording of him collaborating with the fantastic UMO Jazz Orchestra (which he was a co-founding member of, over 40 years ago! The results are fantastic.

"The saxophonist and composer Eero Koivistoinen, who turned 70 this winter, is going through an exceptionally creative phase in his career. Koivistoinen celebrated his birthday together with the jazz orchestra UMO (Uuden Musiikin Orkesteri, New Music Orchestra), which..

"The soundtrack to the 1962 motion picture directed by Roman Polanski. The music was written by the brilliant young Polish composer and pianist Krzysztof Komeda. It is arguably one of the most effective scores in cinema history; understated jazz that compliments the picture's sharp monochrome cinematography and the tense minimalism of the script and brings to the film another emotional dimension.
Also included here are two pieces composed and performed by Komeda for "Two Men And A Wardrobe" and...

Released on Proper, a great UK label who do an amazing job in terms of packaging, presentation and especially in terms of sonics. This is important, basic repertoire material. A great place to hear some of his best stuff and at a amazing price...

"On the Thirteenth of October of 1927 one of the great geniuses of jazz, was born. Now over 90 years (!!!!!!!) Konitz releases his first album with Impulse.
A wonder, a bliss, with a rhythmic basis of scandal, Kenny Barron on piano, Peter Washington on bass and Kenny Washington on drums. A dream.
He not only sounds good but also sounds cool and different, he even sings ... Genius and figure to the end. What can be said, only that it is a total and complete wonder."-Manuel Grosso Galvan

While they last, this is a full $10.00 off the usual price!

Long awaited - at least by me - second studio album by this terrific African band from Congo, who blend traditional Bazombo trance music with heavy amplification. The band features....

"All I can say is that sometimes when you have anticipated something for a long time you can become afraid that it can't possibly live up to your built up expectations. No fear this time. The lost album is indescribable. What a treasure to hear Kooper and Bloomfield together again! After wearing out copies of Super Session and Super Session live on Vinyl, 8 track, cassette, and CD, to actually hear this new material was like the closest thing to time travel that I expect to ever get...

“Boris Kovacs was born in Vojvodina, the multi-ethnic region of what was then Yugoslavia. He studied accordion and saxophone, going on to teach himself many other instruments. On this record he plays mainly soprano saxophone, leaving Jasna Jovisevic to take alto and bassclarinet. Like pianist Slobodank Stevic, she was classically trained, as was bassist Sinisa Mazalica. The drummer, Boris' son Lav Kovac, is celebrated for his very different playing in Howling Owl and with a variety of eastern bands...

Influential and legendary German Krautrock/Jazzrock band formed around Hellmut Hattler, Jan Wolbrandt, Jan Friede and Johannes Pappert in 1967. Originally playing a hybrid of free jazz (influenced by the likes of Pharaoh Sanders and Frank Zappa) the members lived communally and worked on tightening up their sound, as well as other art projects, for close to five years before recording and releasing their jazz/psychedelic debut album under the name Kraan (meaning ‘faucet’ in Dutch). The balance of the 70s...

This is pretty damn great (but subtlely and quietly so, so don't expect it to shout its greatness at you!), very far-sighted jazz from 1957-58 that combines cool and even shadings of Jimmy Guiffre style 'quiet' with rigorous composition informed by modern classical (what would shortly later be called 'Third Stream'). Conditionally hugely recommended!

"He was not as well-known as Phil Woods or Tony Scott, but the Philadelphia-born alto saxophonist-clarinetist and educator John La Porta was one of...

All previously unreleased duets recorded between 1982-94, & featuring the soprano sax master with Derek Bailey, Bobby Few, George Lewis, Steve Potts, Roswell Rudd, Masahiko Togashi, Mal Waldron & others.

“Make a list of your top ten 70s Peruvian prog bands, and Laghonia cannot fail to be at the top, while their fans unanimously agree that they reached the zenith of their musical powers with this incredible work, their second album. The first track 'Someday' is included on the 'Love, Peace and Poetry' Latin American psych comp, and I think anyone who's heard it will agree it is one of the classics of early 70s psych-prog.
The album is from 1971, and is not psych in the sense of late sixties psych, but..

Rachel Anne Warren - vocals, keys
Jonathan Badger - acoustic and electric guitars, oud, mellotron, piano, vocals, balalaika, concussions
Really great, edgy, electro-pop duo project from the under-recognized Jonathan Badger (who I knew, of course) and Rachel (a really fine singer from Baltimore who I didn't know before this project)

"Lake Mallory is the musical hybrid born of the wildly diverse sensibilities of Jonathan Badger (Cuneiform, MT6, High Horse) and Rachel Anne Warren...

"Lambert Hendricks & Ross are still regarded as the finest jazz vocal group of all time: Their fame comes from their pioneering of vocalese; wordless vocals imitating instruments and they achieved this in an astonishing style that has never been surpassed. The EL edition is full of rarities, restored and reissued on compact disc for the first time including numerous superb pre-LHR recordings involving Dave Lambert Singers and Annie Ross and three LHR live tracks from a 1958 radio broadcast; including a...

"The New Yorker critic Whitney Balliett once said her tiny wisp of a voice "would scarcely reach the second storey of a doll's house", while jazz critic Leonard Feather described it as "a voice in a million". Blossom Dearie pursued a singular career...

"These rare recordings made between 1970-1973 are now available on CD for the first time. Transferred from the original master tapes this recording finds saxophonist and free-jazz legend Byard Lancaster playing his trademark sound in a live setting. At times the music is very wild and free, at other points it is quiet and melancholy. Musicians include: J.R. Mitchell - percussion, Calvin Hill - bass, Paul Morrison - electric bass, Lester Lumley - conga, Sid Simmons - piano and Joe Hunter - bass."

"Originally recorded and released in 1979, this recording finds jazz musician Byard Lancaster in a solo setting playing on a variety of instruments that includes piano, flute, piccolo, bass clarinet, voice, soprano and alto saxes and percussion...

Jerome was a founding member of the very fine Quebecois band Maneige, writing and performing on their 1st two albums, which were some of the band's highlights. For the last 30 years, he's been doing soundtrack-type work, and it reflects that, but it al...

"The twelve part BBC Series, Lark Rise to Candleford, on prime time Sunday nights has attracted nearly 12 million viewers each week. The album includes several pieces of music from the programme, including the theme music. The main man behind the...

One of the very first (maybe *the* first) CD release on the late, great AYAA label was by this mostly instrumental Swiss trio of tenor sax, bass and drums. 20 years later, here they are again, now with a guitarist and a couple of guests on a few songs...

“...Contemplation was recorded in 1960 and has Lateef fronting a stellar ensemble that includes longtime collaborator Barry Harris on piano, Nat Adderley on cornet, Louis Hayes on drums, and Sam Jones on bass. While the title of the session may be associated with Lateef's more Eastern-themed albums, Contemplation is an album of straight-ahead, blues-based hard bop. The deep evidence is that Lateef, a great multi-instrumentalist, restricts himself to blowing tenor here. The set opens with "Hazing," an...

"On December 10, 2007, Led Zeppelin took the stage at London’s O2 Arena to headline a tribute concert for dear friend and Atlantic Records founder Ahmet Ertegun. What followed was a two-hour-plus tour de force of the band’s signature blues-infused...

This is the 2014 remastered / expanded edition of Zep's iconically iconic second album, done by Jimmy Page.

"With the 2014 release of deluxe editions of Led Zeppelin, Led Zeppelin II, & Led Zeppelin III, the band will launch an extensive reissue program of all nine of its studio albums in chronological order, each remastered by guitarist and producer Jimmy Page. Led Zeppelin will also open its vaults to share dozens of unheard studio and live recordings, with each album featuring a second disc of..

Nice reissue of the two very good albums released in the 70s by one of the greats of the Welsh band Man, after he left Man for a solo career / new band called Iceberg.
If you were British at a certain time in the 70s, these two intelligent rawk albums very well might have been one of the main soundtracks of your youth...

“Furry Lewis was the only blues singer of the 1920s to achieve major media attention in the 1960s and '70s. One of the most recorded Memphis-based guitarists of the late '20s, Lewis's subsequent fame 40 years later was based largely on the strength of those early sides. One of the very best blues storytellers, and an extremely nimble-fingered guitarist right into his seventies, he was equally adept at blues and ragtime, and made the most out of an understated, rather than an overtly flamboyant style.”

NOTE: These copies have a top seam split, so we are blowing them out!

Limited edition blue, black & white vinyl in a beautiful gatefold sleeve!

Libra were an Italian progressive rock band who strangely enough signed to Motown in the early 1970's, releasing one album that just disappeared (who looks for progressive rock on Motown?).

Years later they reappeared with this, their 2nd and final album, which was the somewhat-to-extremely Goblin-esque sountrack to a Mario Bava...

"Although Dave Liebman had recorded a few unaccompanied saxophone records before, The Distance Runner was his first live CD in that format. Switching between soprano, tenor, and wooden flute, Liebman is mostly heard in a thoughtful and lyrical mood...

"While listening to saxophonist Dave Liebman's 2006 release, Back on the Corner, it's pretty darn hard not to think of Miles Davis' groundbreaking early-'70s fusion period. And there are obvious reasons for this: firstly, Liebman actually played with Davis at one point (appearing on Davis' 1973 release, On the Corner), another Davis sideman plays throughout the album (guitarist Mike Stern), and lastly, two of the compositions were penned by Davis himself. Joining Liebman and Stern is renowned sessionman...

It has been my great pleasure to have known and to have been friends with keyboardist, composer and general musical mover & shaker Erik Lindgren for nearly 30 years.
He is a great person and also a really fascinating musician who combines great love for some very disparate musical genres into a unique end result. This is a great and fascinating listen; I doubt that most will love everything, but there is plenty here for basically ANYONE. Which is what makes this release (and Erik) so great!...

Erik Lindgren is a founding member of Birdsongs of the Mesozoic and he is also one of the word's experts on garage and garage/punk rock of the 1960s. On this album, he manages to combine his love of classical music, garage rock and whatever you want to...

Suddenly there are a good number of really great spacerock bands out there and Litmus is absolutely one of the best of them. This is the second album by this UK spacerock band heavily influenced by Hawkwind's classic early/mid 70s albums. This thing...

Let me tell you something; in the early to mid 70s, in Washington, DC, there was no band that more people didn't agree was one of the unheralded greats than Little Feat! Founded by guitarist/singer/composer Lowell George upon his exit from the Mothers...

Let me tell you something; in the early to mid 70s, in Washington, DC, there was no band that more people didn't agree was one of the unheralded greats than Little Feat! Founded by guitarist/singer/composer Lowell George upon his exit from the Mother of Invention. Did any other band combine such songwriting smarts with boogie? I don't think so!
This was the last album released by the band during Lowell George's lifetime. I don't think it's their best, but it's a very good album.
