"Live at Carnegie Hall captures Stevie Ray Vaughan on the supporting tour for his second album, 1984's Couldn't Stand the Weather. The Carnegie Hall concert was a special show, since it was the only time Vaughan and Double Trouble added the brass section from Roomful of Blues to augment their sound; in addition, the concert featured guest appearances from Stevie's brother Jimmie and Dr. John. There might have been more musicians than usual on-stage, but Stevie Ray remains the center of attention, and...

"Stevie Ray Vaughan's second album, Couldn't Stand the Weather, pretty much did everything a second album should do: it confirmed that the acclaimed debut was no fluke, while matching, if not bettering, the sales of its predecessor, thereby cementing Vaughan's status as a giant of modern blues. So why does it feel like a letdown? Perhaps because it simply offers more of the same, all the while relying heavily on covers. Of the eight songs, half are covers, while two of his four originals are...

His last album released in his lifetime and some consider it his best!

"Live Alive is a magnificent double-length showcase for Stevie Ray Vaughan's guitar playing, featuring a number of extended jams on a selection of most of the best material from Vaughan's first three albums, plus covers of "Willie the Wimp," "I'm Leaving You (Commit a Crime)," and Stevie Wonder's "Superstition." The album may not be exceptionally tight or concise, but then again, that's not the point. The renditions here sound less polished than the studio versions, with Vaughan's guitar tone bitingly...

"It's hard to overestimate the impact Stevie Ray Vaughan's debut, Texas Flood, had upon its release in 1983. At that point, blues was no longer hip, the way it was in the '60s. Texas Flood changed all that, climbing into the Top 40 and spending over half a year on the charts, which was practically unheard of for a blues recording. Vaughan became a genuine star and, in doing so, sparked a revitalization of the blues. This was a monumental impact, but his critics claimed that, no matter how prodigious...

“One would be hard-pressed to name a rock album whose influence has been as broad and pervasive as The Velvet Underground & Nico. While it reportedly took over a decade for the album's sales to crack six figures, glam, punk, new wave, goth, noise, and nearly every other left-of-center rock movement owes an audible debt to this set. While The Velvet Underground had as distinctive a sound as any band, what's most surprising about this album is its diversity. Here, the Velvets dipped their toes into dreamy..

A fantastic record ignored.
"Simon! Let's drop the price 60% and make them go away so I don't have to think about all the mistakes I make here and you don't either!"
"OK - good idea!"

Viscera Crash are a quintet of two cellos and two..

"This tenth recording from the now legendary quartet reminds listeners that, while smooth jazz often gets better press, there are still fans of honest to God inventive electric fusion who will eat up this type of powerfully rocking and energetic project. Bassist Baron Browne joined the core trio of Steve Smith (drums), Frank Gambale (guitar), and Tom Coster (keyboards) in 1998, and provides a rollicking bouncy energy throughout on tunes like the feisty Herbie Hancock ode "Soul Principle" and the '60s...

I recently watched Down By Law, a great film by Jim Jarmusch, which stars Tom Waits and his buddy John Lurie from The Lounge Lizards. Waits' "Jockey Full Of Bourbon" is the music in the opening scene, and it reminded me to revisit this album. We were able to get some copies for a low price, so here it is...

"With its jarring rhythms and unusual instrumentation -- marimba, accordion, various percussion -- as well as its frequently surreal lyrics, Rain Dogs is very much a follow-up to...

"Tom Waits, as usual, has produced another classic. It should be noted, however, that "Real Gone" is a really gritty, avant-garde effort. The sonic texture of the album is akin to some of the tunes on "Bone Machine" with a tinge of the sweaty grit of...

"Remastered edition of RICK WAKEMAN’s 2003 live album with the New English Rock Ensemble, “In the Nick of Time”. Featuring a band comprising ASHLEY HOLT (vocals), ANT GLYNNE (Guitars), LEE POMEROY (Bass), TONY FERNANDEZ (Drums) and ERIK JORDAN (Additional Keyboards) ‘In the Nick of Time’ was an excellent live album that saw Rick and his band perform many classic tracks such as ‘No Earthly Connection’, ‘Catherine Parr’, ‘White Rock’ and ‘Wurm’, alongside the title track from the recently recorded album...

"A volcanic display of free jazz intensity from this New York group co-led by dual drummers Marc Edwards (Cecil Taylor, David S. Ware alumni) and Weasel Walter (Flying Luttenbachers, Behold . . . The Arctopus, etc.) and featuring saxophonists Darius Jones and Elliott Levin, bassist Adam Lane and trumpeter Forbes Graham. This isn't your grandma's free jazz - this stuff is violent, dense, fast and powerful at all costs, pushing the idiom headfirst into the future. Fans of Albert Ayler/Cecil Taylor/Peter....

"Hot on the heels of 2006's "Revolt Music", this release goes even further into free jazz hell!!! Almost 80 minutes of smoldering, burning, raging free jazz featuring a cast of legendary east coast musicians including Sun Ra Arkestra leader Marshall Allen! Firestorm is an intense and musically assaultive release of killer, balls-out free jazz that will appeal to those who long for the most bombasic works of Broetzmann, Ayler, Takayanagi and Cecil Taylor! This release reveals many shades of intensity and...

"Dinah Washington was one of the greatest jazz singers of all time and this compilation is a snapshot of her at the peak of her powers in the mid fifties period of rendition between blues and jazz. It is a fantastic introduction to the artists work....

"This is a splendid example of the young Dinah Washington. It's recorded live at Birdland on the Symphony Sid radio program. The sound is excellent for what it is, the band (Wynton Kelly, Percy Heath, Art Blakey, Jimmy Cobb, Ed Shaughnessy, etc) are...

"This was Waters second solo album after leaving Pink Floyd. His first "The Pros And Cons Of Hitchhiking" was a big disappointment to me and I did not really care for it. "KAOS" would fare a bit better, but still suffers from Rogers rather maudlin writing style and the lack of his former cohort David Gilmour as a musical partner. "KAOS" is a concept album about a wheelchair bound boy who can receive radio waves through his head. The story unfolds through his correspondence with a DJ at KAOS radio station...

"When dissected carefully, The Pros and Cons of Hitch Hiking becomes a fascinating conceptual voyage into the workings of the human psyche. As an abstract peering into the intricate functions of the subconscious, Waters' first solo album involves...

"The shifts in Weather Report's personnel come fast and furious now, with Narada Michael Walden and Chester Thompson as the drummers, Alex Acuna and Don Alias at the percussion table, and Alphonso Johnson giving way to the mighty, martyred Jaco Pastorius. It is interesting to hear Pastorius expanding the bass role only incrementally over what the more funk-oriented Johnson was doing at this early point -- that is, until "Barbary Coast," where suddenly Jaco leaps athletically forward into the spotlight...

This is the 2003, remastered, digipack version of their classic second album. Weather Report grew out of Miles Davis' early electric jazz/rock experiments in 1969-71. Weather Report formed in 1971, and 1972 album had them adding guests (something they almost never did) on a number of the tracks that originally made up side one, while sice two has the great lineup of: Joe Zawinul-pianos and synths, Wayne Shorter-saxes, Miroslav Vitous-acoustic and electric bass, Eric Gravatt-drums and Don Um Ramao....

Weather Report grew out of Miles Davis' early electric jazz/rock experiments in 1969-71. Weather Report formed in 1971, and this was recorded by a great version of the band (for they were a band always in transition) and this, their fourth studio album, was the album that saw Alfonso Johnson replacing founding bassist Miroslav Vitous (although both appear on the album).

This was the band starting to head in a more electric and 'popular' direction, but it's still one of their very best. This is...

"Right from the start, a vastly different Weather Report emerges here, one that reflects co-leader Joe Zawinul's developing obsession with the groove. It is the groove that rules this mesmerizing album, leading off with the irresistible 3/4 marathon...

A great price on a classic, early, vital electric jazz/jazz-rock album. Still a great listen nearly 40 years later!

The Who are my favorite English rock band of the 60s. Hands down. But some of their recordings don't show them at their best. Like some other of my favorites (I think of Soft Machine during Robert's tenure), some of their best recordings and performances during their best period were their BBC recordings. Especially Keith's unbelievable drumming. And here they are! YOW!!

Surely you already own this, one of the greatest live rock albums ever made? You don't? And here it is in a hugely expanded version, which sounds fantastic. AND IT’S NOW SO INEXPENSIVE!

"The Feb 14, 1970 Leeds show which provided The Who with their first official live album is widely regarded by collectors as not only one of the group's finest-ever shows, but one of the greatest live shows in rock history.
The original album included only 35 minutes of the 120 minute show, and was still one

Surely you already own this, one of the greatest live rock albums ever made? You don't? And here it is in a hugely expanded version, which sounds fantastic. And it really is one of the greatest live rock albums ever!

In the eyes of this gigantic Who fan, this is the band's final masterpiece - flawed, but still an ambitious masterpiece and it has some brilliant stuff on it.

"Pete Townshend revisited the rock opera concept with another double-album opus, this time built around the story of a young mod's struggle to come of age in the mid-'60s.
If anything, this was a more ambitious project than Tommy, given added weight by the fact that the Who weren't devising some fantasy but were re-examining the roots..

Tons of otherwise unavailable live material from the bands prime (and even after their prime, but still really good) and a few studio tracks we all already know too. But at this price, any half respecting Who fans NEEDS this if only for the definitive psychedelic era version of My Generation from 1967. But there's so much more great stuff here!

"Like the film itself, the soundtrack to the Who's Kids Are Alright documentary is frustrating even as it pleases, since it falls short of being.....

This is one of the GREATEST psychedelic/pop albums of the 1960s, and this is the excellent remastered version with a zillion great bonus tracks and a great booklet. The Who were in their prime in 1967, and this is FILLED with amazing moments. As my old...

The fourth album in four years by The Who and is one of the great achievements of rock in the late 60s and the album that broke the band into superstar status worldwide.
This is one of the great art-rock albums of all time and, nearly 50 years later, is still a stunning achievement; if you haven't played this one in decades, it's even better than you remember!
Absolutely recommended; this belongs in any rock collection.

Excellent collection of rare live stuff, promo films, tv appearances (lip synced and actually live), etc etc etc. fro the earliest days in 1965 to when I stopped caring. For me, this is worth it for their 1967 appearance on Beat Club alone, where they...

The Who's quite amazing 1971 studio album was (and is) played too much on classic rock radio, but that doesn't make it any less of a tremendous feat. It's also their most progressive rock oriented disc, what with Pete's use of keyboards and Terry Riley...

This is an extraordinary vault-find. These approximately 40' long sessions have never been released before, not even bootlegged, and were not even known to exist.
They are released as individual (and quite beautiful) lps, but the CD versions pairs up two sympathetic sessions together on one disc!
And most importantly, every one of these is great! Even the artists I was completely unfamiliar with, are great. Hugely recommended.

"The Pop-Liisa and Jazz-Liisa broadcast session series...

This digitally remastered, two-on-one CD presents both mid 1970's albums that Tony cut with the "new" Lifetime for Columbia. Believe It was from 1975 and MDL was from the next year. Both records include Tony on drums, Allan Holdsworth-guitar (fresh...

This 1993 album was Cassandra Wilson's Blue Note debut and set the stage for the bulk of her career.
One of the best jazz vocal and most influential jazz album of its decade, it features uncluttered and well thought out arrangements, each one well suited to the song chosen and each one well fitting her dark voice.
She was also one of the earliest truly jazz vocalist to cast beyond the 'great American songbook' and use a personal & eclectic batch of great songs that reflect her interpretation of...

An unusual and adventurous tribute to Miles Davis, in all of his facets and periods.

"The New York Times recommended it as one of several releases in 1999 that adults would really enjoy and they are absolutely right. Ms. Wilson has taken Miles Davis' music and put her own stamp on it and the result is beautiful."-Elizabeth Hendry

"2017 release from the British singer, songwriter, and musician. To The Bone is his expansive, brilliant fifth solo album. It is the follow up to 2015's Hand. Cannot. Erase. (one of Rolling Stone's best albums of 2015). A gloriously dynamic modernist pop record as imagined by the UK s biggest underground artist, To The Bone is Steven Wilson's hat-tip to the hugely ambitious progressive pop records of his youth (think Peter Gabriel's So, Talk Talk's Colour...

This album has a long and complicated history. In April, 1976, saxist Gary Windo, who was working part time for Nick Mason of Pink Floyd as a mechanic for Nick's car collection, was offered the opportunity to record a album at Pink Floyd's brand-new studio. He would be offered this opportunity as a 'test', to allow the engineers to test, with real musicians, the over-all systems and sound.
Between the years 1976-1978, as time allowed, Gary and a number of other musicians, including Pam Windo-piano...

"2009 release from The Wishing Tree, an acoustic side project from Marillion guitarist Steve Rothery and British vocalist Hannah Stobart. Nearly 10 years after their debut album, the duo are back with a new collaboration, co-written by Steve and Hannah, with Steve playing all instruments except the drums, as well as producing and engineering it. Rothery and Stobart are joined by Paul Craddick who plays the drums, on material which Rothery describes as a cross between Portishead and Alanis Morissette....

"Swapping out his rhythm section, Andrew Stockdale proves beyond a shadow of a doubt that he's the mastermind of Wolfmother on Cosmic Egg, creating a second record that is essentially a replication of the first, equally enamored with all the thick, heavy rock of the '70s, specifically Sabbath and Zeppelin, tempered with a little bit of Jack White caterwaul. All the sounds remain the same, but the songs have changed: with the occasional exception, such as the Stripes-ian salute "White Feather," Stockdale....

“WOLFMOTHER has hit the mark and obliterated it! The crunchy chords; the distortion; the somewhat muffled drums; the vocals out front: it has the ingredients that made their predecessors huge. If you're into that 60's and 70's hard rock sound that was coined by bands like Jo Jo Gunne, Spirit, Spooky Tooth, Jethro Tull, Black Sabbath (with Ozzy), and Pink Floyd, then you will love this album!”

Rich Woodson is a self-taught composer and guitarist who grew up on hard rock and heavy metal in Nashville, TN and San Antonio and Austin, TX. His major musical influences are Tim Berne, Frank Zappa, Watchtower (the 1980's Austin metal band, who invented the technical metal subgenre) and composer Charles Wuorinen.
This debut CD, performed by a crack band, comprising Rich on guitar, Aaron Stewart-tenor sax, Peter Epstein-soprano sax, Mat Fieldes-acoustic bass and John Hollenbeck-drums, is a bold and...

This is a really great album, although I didn’t appreciate it as much when it was first released, because I was a TOTAL fan of Slow Crimes by The Work, and only half that band appears here.
Having said that, as time has gone on, I’ve grown more and more to be aware of what a splendid performance is captured here AND ALSO to appreciate what a utterly slaying performance Chris gives on drums!
And now with the CD issue of this, Udi made what I always thought of a not very good live recording sound...
