Mega Blowout Sale


What a guitarist! What a band! (Just Terry Bozzio-drums and Tony Hymas on keyboards! That's all!)
After a long time away, Jeff came back with this one in the late 80s; I remember seeing him do the song "Sling Shot" which is on here with this band...

"This is as fine a modern guitar record as you are ever going to hear."-Thom Jurek

"There and Back, Jeff Beck's first new studio album in four years, found him moving from old keyboard partner Jan Hammer (three tracks) to new one Tony Hymas (five), which turned out to be the difference between competition and support. Hence, the...

"Jeff Beck has never shied away from following trends, at least as far as the musical styles he uses to back up his signature guitar sound. Back in 1969, in a sleeve note on Beck-Ola, he noted that he hadn't come up with "anything totally original,"...

The 2nd of the three 'fusion' albums released by Beck in the mid 70s, while in thrall to the Mahavishnu Orchestra, which was a surprising but very satisfying path for a 'rock' guitarist to go down. And he did it with class and style. A classic!

"Released in 1976, Jeff Beck's Wired contains some of the best jazz-rock fusion of the period. Wired is generally more muscular, albeit less-unique than its predecessor, Blow by Blow. Joining keyboardist Max Middleton, drummer Richard Bailey, and producer..

" This album, as said by many other reviewers, is one of Jeff Beck's best, and is one of guitar's best as well. You Had It Coming pushes musical boundaries like none before it. People usually turn their heads when I tell them it's techno oriented, but...

This was recorded in 1977 and is Jeff's most over the top jazz-rock fusion blowout. It features tunes from Blow by Blow, Wired and Jan's The First Seven Days. A classic of over the top mid/late 70s fusion.

This is a solo synthesizer/keyboard release; the closest to space music as Bedford ever got!

"David Bedford was originally commissioned to write Great Equatorial as part of the celebrations surrounding the renovation of the room containing the...

David Bedford, Kevin Ayers, Robert Wyatt, Mike Oldfield, Lol Coxhill. Can you imagine?...

“Written in 1970 on a commission from The London Sinfonietta for a 'Third Stream' concert, THE GARDEN OF LOVE is scored for a "classical" quintet, rock group with vocal solo, and "six beautiful dancing girls". The essential idea is clever. Composer David Bedford starts with a melodic germ which is only heard in fragments throughout the aggressively ugly eighteen minute instrumental beginning section. After...

"A raw, powerful, intimate live document of the Bryan Beller Band 2010 touring lineup playing a 45-minute set at The Baked Potato in Los Angeles, plus two bonus tracks from other shows. Rick Musallam (guitar), Griff Peters (guitar), Mike Keneally...

"An up-close-and-personal 4-camera document of the Beller band's one-night-only 2010 show at the Baked Potato in Los Angeles, featuring the Wednesday Night Live lineup. Special features include between-song dialogue not present on the CD, additional....

The debut by Big Brother, when Janis was just a member of the band and not THE STAR; originally released by Mainstream, it wasn't until later, when Columbia reissued it, that the 'featuring Janis Joplin' was added!

Recorded in December of 1966, it has a weak production, but it's still an accurate record of early psychedelia.

"Avant-lovely"-Philadelphia City Paper. Unique and spiritedly fun taste by a new band who fuse pop and even new-wave sensibilites with more out structures and who include some notable players here, including the great Peter Zummo!...

While drummer Art Blakey introduced up and coming musicians to the public via his long-lived group The Jazz Messengers, and there are many fine records and line-ups to choose from, his mid 50s early period is one of my favorites. Dig!

"The very first edition of Art Blakey's Jazz Messengers was unfortunately short-lived, and as excellent as they were collectively, it was the beginning of a trend for the members of this group to come and go. Unbeknown to Blakey at the time, he would become a...

"Recorded live for FM broadcast in the spring of 1969, this superb set captures legendary jazz drummer Art Blakey putting his band through their paces on a series of incendiary extended tracks. Featuring the young Woody Shaw on trumpet, as well as Carlos Garnett (tenor saxophone), George Cables (piano), and Scotty Holt (bass), it's presented here in its entirety, with digitally remastered sound, background notes, and images."

A very good relic of a half century ago, finding Steve Winwood in wonderful voice and everyone else in very good to great form. If you want to appreciate this album even more - and also appreciate why it only lasted 6 months - be sure to watch the Ginger Baker documentary "Beware Of Mister Baker"!

"Blind Faith's first and last album, nearly 50 years old and counting, remains one of the jewels of the Eric Clapton, Steve Winwood, and Ginger Baker catalogs, despite the crash-and-burn history of the...

"Fifteen tracks covering the pioneering blues-rock guitarist's '60s work, which was by far his best and most influential. Bloomfield worked with a bunch of bands during the decade, and the compilation flits rather hurriedly from his contributions to the Paul Butterfield Blues Band and Electric Flag, to his collaborations with Al Kooper, as well as some late-'60s solo tracks. Collectors will be interested in the first five songs, which date from previously unreleased sessions produced by John Hammond in...

This is an extremely high-quality vinyl version of this fine album, and, of course, the extremely eye-catching cover artwork looks just wonderful in this larger size. Plus, it's the Blue Cranes, so we pressed it on beautiful, translucent blue vinyl!...

"If ever there were a manifesto for 1970s rock, one that prefigured both the decadence of the decade's burgeoning heavy metal and prog rock excesses and the rage of punk rock, "This Ain't the Summer of Love," the opening track from Agents of Fortune, Blue Öyster Cult's fourth album, was it. The irony was that while the cut itself came down firmly on the hard rock side of the fence, most of the rest of the album didn't. Agents of Fortune was co-produced by longtime Cult record boss Sandy Pearlman, Murray...

The band who basically invented the idea of 'thinking man's hard rock/heavy metal'. One of the great hard rock bands of all time and that's no lie! This is their classic first album and includes four never-before released demos!

The band who basically invented the idea of 'thinking man's hard rock/heavy metal'. One of the great hard rock bands of all time and that's no lie! This is their mega-classic third album - generally regarded as their greatest - and includes 5 bonus tracks

The band who basically invented the idea of 'thinking man's hard rock/heavy metal'. One of the great hard rock bands of all time and that's no lie! This is their mega-classic second album and includes four bonus tracks!

"Blossom Dearie is one of the most brilliant and attractive singers in jazz (the Astrud Gilberto of serious jazz). She formed Blue Stars Of France at the outset of her career in the early 50s and the band enjoyed an immediate American hit with their...

"After the breakup of Deep Purple in 1976, guitarist Tommy Bolin wasted little time beginning work on his second solo album, Private Eyes. While it was more of a conventional rock album than its predecessor, Teaser (which served primarily as a showcase for his guitar skills and contained several jazz/rock instrumentals), it was not as potent. The performances aren't as inspired as those on Teaser or even those on Bolin's lone album with Deep Purple, Come Taste the Band, although there a few highlights...

Really nice set of ambient-ish electronic music with influences from minimalism, soundtracks, "Another Green World" and more. Richard has been doing this for a LONG time and it really shows.

"A founding member of N.Y.C.'s electronic music scene, Richard Bone started his career by writing music for off-Broadway theatre productions (using homemade processors), and has worked with neo-legendaries Lenny Kaye and Reeves Gabrels.
He has composed original music for award-winning cable and broadcast.

The complete lineup: Polly Bradfield-violin, Andrea Centazzo-percussion, Eugune Chadbourne-guitar, Tom Cora-cello, Toshinori Kondo-trumpet, LaDonna Smith-violin, Davey Williams-guitar, Jack Wright-sax, John Zorn-reeds. Hard to believe all this talent w...

While they last (and if there is any cosmic justice in this sad, ol' world, 'while they last' won't be long), these copies are a full 50% off of the regular price!

This reissues a stupidly obscure, really quite good, early jazz/rock/kozmigroov...

While they last, this is $8.00 off the usual price.

A very weird album, originally released on Polydor in 1970 and basically unheard of since. Pretty wild fuzz guitar, bass, drums, with Victor himself performing on vocals and steel drums! Huh?...

Brainville (mk 1) was Daevid Allen-guitar and vocals, Kramer-keyboards/bass/guitar, Hugh Hopper-bass, Pip Pyle-drums. It's amazing to see this document released, especially as I was at this gig in NYC at the Knitting Factory! (I just happened to be in NYC visiting family at the time, but how was I going to pass up a chance to see this??).

"Brainville was the band formed by Daevid Allen, Hugh Hopper and the late Pip Pyle all revered musicians within the Canterbury Scene. The band have built up a..

Very good quality radio broadcast from March 30, 1978 from Stockholm, Sweden.
The line-up is
Peter Robinson-keyboards
Mike Miller-guitar
Percy Jones-bass
Morris Pert-percussion
Chuck Burgi-drums

Three LENGTHY songs are here: Earth Dance (17'), Access To Data (12') and Deadly Nightshade (28')!

Well worth it for fans. For those who don't know with the band, start with Livestock.

Robin Lumley-keyboards
John Goodsall-guitar
Percy Jones-bass
Phil Collins-drums

The good news: This captures Brand X in their early prime, from around the time of their 1st album and with all the fury and fire they had in that period. And in really good 'live and smokin' sound, as this was recorded for a radio broadcast.

The bad news: the radio broadcast was 25' long and that's all that is here.

So - half a great album. And something you'll have to decide if it's wo

Second studio album from 1977, this is even better than their excellent first. The best fusion band of the mid/late 1970's? Well, they were certainly tied with Bruford for that crown. Drummer Phil Collins, monster bassist Percy Jones, guitarist John Go...

"This is one of Abdullah Ibrahim's most colorful band recordings. With a 12-piece group that includes altoist Carlos Ward, trombonist Craig Harris and bassist Cecil McBee along with some lesser-known names, Ibrahim performs eight folklike originals that..

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...

"This live outing from Brown's seminal 1970 J.B.'s lineup features Bootsy Collins, Clyde Stubblefield, Fred Wesley, Maceo Parker, Bobby Byrd, and many more. While it's a cut below Love Power Peace in documenting this lineup live, Brown and his band...

This is 74 classic, early-period singles by Mr. Excitement himself. This has it all in one place! God-damn!

"Pete Brown is perhaps best known for being lyricist on the classic songs co-written with JACK BRUCE for both CREAM and Jack’s solo albums. In addition Pete is a respected performer in his own right, having performed with the band’s BATTERED ORNAMENTS and PIBLOKTO! in the 70s and fronting his own band, The Interocetors. PHIL RYAN has had a respected career as keyboard player for legendary bands such as EYES OF BLUE, MAN and NEUTRONS, along with a spell as keyboard player in PIBLOKTO! with Pete Brown...

Pete Brown is best known as Jack Bruce's lyricist, having penned many of Jack's (and Cream's) great lyrics. Based on that success, he formed Battered Ornaments and then, when they imploded, he formed Piblokto!
This is their 2nd album, from 1970. This is one of those bands that I never heard at the time and, actually, had always assumed kinda sucked. It wasn't until many, many years later that I actually heard them and I was wrong. BOTH of the two albums by Piblokto are pretty much uniformly great...

This is a compilation of some of Brubeck's early work, including his earliest recordings, on which I think you can hear a bit more of his influence from Milhaud, with whom he studied.

"Since Dave Brubeck recorded often in the decade or so this..

This was the follow up to the enormously successful "Time Out" album (the 1st jazz album to sell 1 million copies!) and it's great and it's also where many non-musician type folks first learned about time signatures.

"Unlike most sequels, Time...

While they last, this amazing set is $11.00 off the regular price!

Hot damn! This is 3 full discs of Jack's BBC recordings, most of which have not be legitimately released before! You get: (the incredible) 9/18/71 show done for the Harmony Row tour with Jack, Graham Bond, Chris Spedding, Art Themen and John Marshall, the 8/10/71 and 6/26/78 sessions with Jack, John Surman and Jon Hiseman, the BBC TV show by the Bruce/Carla Bley band from 6/6/75 and the 4/14/77 session by Jack, Hughie Burns

I don't know why this great band lasted such a short time - they made a studio disc and then did some touring (I saw one of the shows and it was great), which resulted in this double live album. This has been available before, but has been hard to find for some time now and it is good to have it back!

"This recording chronicles the live performances of Bruford Levin Upper Extremities from 1998. The disc showcases the band's unique blend of jazzy modes with Crimson-esque textures and...

I don't know why this great band lasted such a short time - they made a studio disc (this) and then did some touring (I saw one of the shows and it was great) and then nothing. But we can play this and remember what might have been/should have been a...

"When Earthworks Mark I first appeared in 1987, its looser improvisational approach mixed with considerable technology made perfect sense, given Bruford's early 1980s work with the technology-heavy King Crimson. But while Bruford had been working with...

"Often cited as the ultimate Tim Buckley statement, Goodbye and Hello is indeed a fabulous album, but it's merely one side of Tim Buckley's enormous talent. Recorded in the middle of 1967 (in the afterglow of Sgt. Pepper), this album is clearly inspired by Pepper's exploratory spirit. More often than not, this helps to bring Buckley's awesome musical vision home, but occasionally falters.
Not that the album is overrated (it's not), it's just that it is only one side of Buckley. The finest songs on...

Fun, extremely obscure psych/early prog British rarity, originally released on Nova.

"Amazing 1969 UK mod/psych/freakbeat rarity featuring soon to be members of T2 and The Flies. This is the first time it has been reissued officially on CD...

Long out of print on CD, this is a mid 50s classic of the cool sound, with a GREAT quartet and remarkably subtle interplay between Burns and Farlow.

"Due no doubt to the amount of energy he expended as a composer and arranger in virtually every American mass culture medium, Ralph Burns' legacy as a pianist is extremely small. Therefore, this Leonard Feather-produced small-combo session for Period, divided originally into two ten-inch LPs, should give us some insight into the nuts-and-bolts of...

"The Sensual World is the sixth studio album by Kate Bush. The music is deep and lush, atmospheric and aural. She took four years to make this album when it was released in 1989. The instrumentation and backing singers are sublime. It is a deeply...

"Donald Byrd (born Donaldson Toussaint L'Ouverture Byrd II) was one of the most consistent trumpeters to come out of the fertile Detroit jazz scene that emigrated to New York in the mid-'50s. Byrd possessed a beautiful, round, brassy tone often applied with intriguing ideas in intoxicating displays of exquisite jazz showmanship.
Echoes proudly presents the entire WBCN-FM broadcast of Donald Byrd's appearance with The Blackbyrds at the Jazz Workshop in Boston on September 4th, 1973."
