Mega Blowout Sale

Superb, newly remastered edition of this classic progressive album that features liner notes by Mark Powell, bonus tracks and excellent remastering. Basically these records have been given the same excellent job that Decca gave to the Caravan catalog b...

A few of you bought this band's great 2nd album, Sublimation. Now they have returned for their 3rd and best yet on Sensory. Unbelievably, intensely great instrumental technical metal trio from South Carolina. Just guitar/bass/drums playing with terrifi...

The final Beefheart album from 1982 from a version of the band who never performed a concert and which has a more stripped down sound (just 2 guitars, bass and drums).
Not my favorite of his works, but still fairly indispensable, when you are speaking of one of the most significant musicians of the latter half of the 20th century!
Includes one track not on the original albums and a nice essay by fan and expert Mike Barnes.

While they last, this is over 40% off the regular price!

This bootleg is simultaneously much more and much less than it appears to be.

First the good news: The opening 9 tracks are from the Avalon Ballroon, 1966. 4 of these tracks....

This is a nicely remastered reissue of the very first album by Captain Beefheart, which was originally released on Buddha in 1967. Also included are 7 bonus tracks from the unreleased second album from the Mirror Man sessions that were later re-recorded and used on Strictly Personal.

"With [Ry} Cooder supervising the music, the sessions proceeded more or less smoothly...Overall the music is still blues-based and almost commercial, but several of the cuts point to future directions, especially...

This is a nicely remastered reissue of the second album by Captain Beefheart to be recorded, in 1967, but which was not released until at least 5-6 years later, with misleading dates and information (no, it was not recorded at a band rehearsal one night in 1965, thank you very much!). Also included are 5 tracks from the unreleased second album from the Mirror Man sessions that were later re-recorded and used on Strictly Personal. Hence the name change to The Mirror Man sessions, as this comes as close...

This was the next to last Beefheart album and is an excellent late period one.
This is the version of the band that toured the heaviest - I saw them 12/2/80 on their final tour and they were excellent - and even appeared on Saturday Night Live in the late 70's! Some great stuff on this one.
Includes a nice essay by fan and expert Mike Barnes.

I've never understood what the problem is with the availability of this album; it was issued legitimately on CD and was available for a few years and then it was out of print on CD for a long time and quite rare for at least a decade. Then, for some reason, there was a legit lp version of it for a number of years and, then, finally, just a few years ago, there was a reprint of the CD and here it is.
Anyway, I shouldn't have to say much about this one, should I? After Trout Mask Replica, this is Don...

Yes, this is really only $7.00 now. While our limited supply lasts! Any and every Captain Beefheart fan should own this at this price. Period.

ATTENTION! ATTENTION! Unbelievable ARCHIVAL TREASURE alert! This 30' long DVD contains every scrap of material that exists in the archives of Beat Club/Radio Bremen, from the Magic Band's April 12, 1972 performance, which resulted only in one song ever broadcast - no one ever saw the remaining 25' or even suspected that anything else existed!...

"This is the powerful film of the sold out London Astoria concert which marked the return of Jan Schelhaas to the Caravan lineup. With Jan back in the band, the band recalled the halycon days of Blind Dog At St. Dunstans and Better By Far."

WHILE THEY LAST, this is over 50% off the regular price!
This title has been remastered from the original master tapes. This is the band's previously very hard to find debut from 1968, featuring the classic lineup (Dave Sinclair, Richard Sinclair, Pye Hasting, Richard Coughlin + Jimmy Hastings). It has their usual sound with a more psychedelic air. And fairly unbelievably dated sound effects as well! Includes both the stereo and mono versions of the album complete (some serious sonic differences, as...

This is a very nice anthology of Caravan's BBC appearances from their prime period. Only 25' of this is previously unreleased (a very good performance from 1973), but the previous CDs (such as Green Bottles For Marjorie, as well as others) that...

Over 50% off the regular price!
2003 release by Caravan, who consisted of: Doug Boyle, Geoffrey Richardson, Jim Leverton, Richard Coughlan, Pye Hastings and Jan Schelhaas, with guest shots by Dave Sinclair and Jimmy Hastings.
This is in keeping with Caravan's last few albums, which means it is more intelligent pop songs with some Canterbury/progressive leanings, as opposed to being a Canterbury/progressive album. Having said that, there are a few really great moments here...

Essential, sometimes hair-raising, old time Americana. Deep digging into the 'old weird Amerca' archives and some deep listening.

"These tracks were laid down in 1935 and 1940, mostly re-recordings of their first hits from 1927-34 with a different record company. So the trio had more confidence in their talents, but perhaps less spirit, as another reviewer noted. Recording quality is a tad better than the earlier stuff, as another reviewer mentioned. But if you only want one Carter CD for your...

"Cartwright continues to astound...altogether foot-stomping and gregariously festive...but then again, we wouldn't expect anything less (5/5 stars)!"-All About Jazz

This is the second solo release by composer/saxophonist George Cartwright, best known as the leader of Curlew.
The Memphis Years pays tribute to Cartwright's five-year involvement in Memphis' well known music scene, and features some of that city's best musicians.
Cartwright collaborates with noted lyricist Paul Haines...

A recording of high importance between the Italian percussionist and the soprano sax master. Reissued after 25 years of obscurity, with a bonus track! [Felmay/Robi Droli]

Charisma was an obscure psychedelic rock/proto-progressive rock group from CT from the late sixties that had two albums on the Roulette label. This is the first of their two albums and is quite good release of early, exploratory music with lots of great organ and guitar work, among other tasty things.
First time ever on CD!

"Eric Clapton's new millennium has largely been defined by collaborations with friends, beginning with a duet album with B.B. King following through with a Cream reunion and closing with tours with his former Blind Faith running mate, Steve Winwood.
Clapton and Winwood did three concerts together at Madison Square Garden in February 2008 and the results were fruitful enough to spawn this double-disc album -- along with its accompanying DVD set -- and a moderately scaled 2009 tour...

This 1976 abum typifies all that was good and bad about fusion music by the mid 1970s. Stanley's chops are beyond belief and there is some good performances here - really good. There's also some fairly poor musical choices in a couple of spots. But the...

This was the second solo album by the Return to Forever bassist, released in 1974 when RTF were in their prime/peak. It's an all-star cast of young, hot, fusion kids playing their socks off: Stanley, Tony Williams (drums), Jan Hammer (keyboards)...

This is a return to the heavy, great, fusion work that gave Stanley his name in the first place. MUCH better than anything else he has done under his own name for 30 years!

"It has been somewhat of a frustrating run for fans of uber-bassist Stanley Clarke's legendary, genre-defining '70s work. After establishing himself as the world's premier four-string jazz-rock maestro with his work in Return to Forever and solo albums such as School Days, Clarke altered his focus by churning out middling...

Classic 70's spacey/symphonic rock albums which features leader Cyrille Verdeux's keyboards. This one has three additional keyboardists plus Joel Dugrenot, David Cross, Christian Boule, Gilbert Artman & more.

"After his experimental work on ''Delired Cameleon Family'' Cyrille Verdeaux would regather Clearlight in 1975 for a second album on Virgin, entitled ''Forever blowing bubbles''.By the time the official line-up consisted of Cyrille Verdeaux on piano/keyboards, Bob Boisadan on electric piano...

"While Clearlight were dropped by Virgin by mid-70's, there was no intention by Verdeaux to slow his project down. He was signed by the French label Isadora for the next album ''Les contes du singe fou'', which finds him supported by an almost brand new cast. Except for bassist Joël Dugrenot, who played previously with Clearlight, Didier Lockwood had replaced David Cross on violin, Yves Chouard (who previously played with Total Issue and Emmanuel Booz) was the new guitarist, Serge Aouzi was the new...

Classic 70s spacey/symphonic rock albums which features leader Cyrille Verdeux's keyboards. Here we get Didier Lockwood, Didier Malherbe, & more. This was their final release of the 70s.

Clive Palmer was only in the Incredible String Band for one album before departing, and to most rock and folk fans vanished off the radar screen after leaving the ISB. However, the guitarist-singer did surface in the early 1970s as the leader of C.O.B., an acronym for Clive's Original Band. On their first album, Spirit of Love (1971, CBS), the C.O.B. trio was completed by multi-instrumentalists and singers John Bidwell and Mick Bennett, with some other musicians (including Ralph McTell) lending a hand on...

"Having made landmark recordings with Miles Davis, formed pioneering fusion bands Dreams and Mahavishnu Orchestra, and made several fine solo albums, by 1978 Billy Cobham was firmly established as one of the world's leading jazz-rock drummers. This superb set was taped for radio broadcast by WXRT-FM at Park West, Chicago, Illinois, on March 4, 1978, and finds him supported by his recently formed Magic Band, consisting of Charles Singleton (sax, reeds, guitar), Ray Mouton (guitar), Alvin Batiste...

Long, long, long out of print album (the first of two, this came out in 1992) by this Dutch musician who performs on electric and acoustic guitars, piano, synths, drums, percussion and electronic percussion. Almost completely instrumental, there are a ...

This includes over 25' of previously unreleased music; "October Ferry" and "Forest Path to the Spring".

"Day of the Dead: A suite based on Malcolm Lowry's writings is one of the most successful fusings of spoken word and jazz on disc. While...

A iconic mid 60s John Coltrane album that deserves every singe gram of eminence it has gained in 55 years and counting. If you don't own it, this is a must. Period.

"One of the most important records ever made, John Coltrane's A Love Supreme was his pinnacle studio outing, that at once compiled all of the innovations from his past, spoke to the current of deep spirituality that liberated him from addictions to drugs and alcohol, and glimpsed at the future innovations of his final two and a half...

Fine compilation of his Atlantic work; I mean, he deserves a 5 CD box, but if you want to hear a good sampling of his 1959-1962 era work, this is a fine set....

"Arguably John Coltrane's finest all-around album, this recording has brilliant versions of "Afro Blue" and "I Want to Talk About You"; the second half of the latter features Coltrane on unaccompanied tenor tearing into the piece but never losing sight of the fact that it is a beautiful ballad. The remainder of this album ("Alabama," "The Promise," and "Your Lady") is almost at the same high level."-AllMusic

Very good, early 60s FM broadcast sound.

"When John Coltrane played Pennsylvania State University on January 19, 1963, he was about a year into his stint as leader of what's been canonized as his "classic" quartet. With McCoy Tyner on piano, Jimmy Garrison on bass, and Elvin Jones on drums, WDFM's broadcast of performances from this concert presented almost 70 minutes of imaginative improvisation. Besides Coltrane's own "Mr. P.C.," the program...

Late & great period 'Trane, recorded May 1966 and featuring Pharoah Sanders, Alice Coltrane, Jimmy Garrison and Rashid Ali on two album length tracks.

"Now this was a daring project. By 1966, the once controversial November 1961 Village Vanguard sets, featuring a then-new Coltrane quartet along with Eric Dolphy, were Coltrane canon, a place of beginnings, a point where Coltrane transcended into his "new thing" and let the world know what kind of sounds he was working on (this is best heard in.....

"While I've owned all of John Coltrane's Atlantic and Impulse recordings for going on 15 years, it is only recently that I've sought to complete my collection of his various albums on the Prestige label, many of which have been recently remastered...

"Bill Connors will always be best known for being the original guitarist with Chick Corea's Return to Forever, preceding Al DiMeola. After making one classic album (Hymn of the Seventh Galaxy), Connors left RtF and has had a lower profile ever since, spending some time exploring acoustic guitar.

On 2004's Return, Connors is back on electric guitar but playing post-bop jazz rather than fusion and with a tone closer to Kenny Burrell than to DiMeola. His nine originals sometimes have catchy grooves..

"As it ably says below, this is the real thing, friends.
Not only is this one of the greatest live soul albums ever released, it also reveals a rougher, rawer, and more immediate side to Sam Cooke that his singles only hinted at, good as they were. Working with a merged band that included guitarist Cliff White and drummer Albert "June" Gardner from Cooke's regular touring outfit and saxophonist King Curtis and his band, Cooke brings a gospel fervor to these whirlwind versions, which are fiery...

Incredible, atmospheric, fantastically beautiful, animated film. Highly recommended, but not for kids!

"A dark and creepy film about family relationships directed by Henry Selick of Nightmare Before Christmas and James and the Giant Peach fame, Coraline is based on the haunting book Coraline by Neil Gaiman. Coraline is a teenager who has just moved to an old house in the middle of nowhere with her writer parents and she is bored, bored, bored. Her only companions are an annoyingly talkative boy...

Duets for piano and banjo may not seem all that exciting, but when you are dealing with genre-breaking virtuoso musicians like Corea and Fleck, the instruments used by them are really rather irrelevant; what’s important is their huge imagination and abilities!

"The sophomore effort from the extraordinary drummer Sebastiaan Cornelissen featuring an all-star lineup - guitarists Alex Machacek, Mike Otram, Susan Weinert, Richard Hallebeek; keyboardists Gary Husband, Scott Kinsey, and Steve Hunt; and bassists...

"Larry Coryell revisits familiar territory after taking a bit of a downward spiral of career misdirection and personnel changes going back a few years.
The Eleventh House, now defunct, and Coryell re-evaluating his direction, records Back Together Again with ex-Eleventh House drummer Alphonse Mouzon, while retaining John Lee on bass as well.
No horns. No keys. Just good funky rock fusion also featuring capable guest guitarist Philip Catherine.
All players are on top of their game, and...

This is a really good collaboration from hugely talented folks who you would not expect to work together, but, actually, if you think about it, make total sense to work together.
This is the expanded deluxe edition that comes as a 68 page booklet that contains the liner notes and pictures. Housed inside of the back cover, is the CD. It also includes three bonus tracks.

"Musicians separated by age, style, and demographic, Elvis Costello and the Roots are nevertheless natural collaborators...

This is a really good collaboration from hugely talented folks who you would not expect to work together, but, actually, if you think about it, make total sense to work together.

"Musicians separated by age, style, and demographic, Elvis Costello and the Roots are nevertheless natural collaborators bound by wide taste, insatiable appetite, and fathomless record collections. This is particularly true of Roots drummer/de facto bandleader ?uestlove, the musical omnivore who is the band's most...

2008 solo album by the founder and leader of The Strawbs. This is a very good album of folk-rock that sounds an awful lot like the Strawbs.

Solo album by the leader of The Strawbs, which was originally released in 1972 and fatures some great musical guests like Roger Glover, Rick Wakeman, Jon Hiseman, Dave Lambert and others.

"Recorded between Strawbs projects in the early 70's...

This reissues an excellent early tape loop/processing album from 1980. You would never guess that the sounds here originate from Lol's soprano sax. A lost classic of ambiance/processing!

"Cherry Red generously gave Morgan musical carte-blanche..

Cherry Red is delighted to announce the first release for the rejuvenated Turpentine Records, the label founded by the late singer-songwriter/author/artist Kevin Coyne. Nobody Dies In Dreamland is a collection of songs recorded in 1972, prior to the...

Situated on the latter side of the progressive decade, Crack The Sky managed to escape wider attention in the 1970s thanks to a series of ill-managed mishaps. The release of their 1976 album Animal Notes would suffer the same fate as its predecessor gaining critical approval, but poor sales. Meanwhile, the band would amass a loyal following, sharing bills with the likes of Supertramp, ELO, Rush, Foreigner, Boston, Zappa and Be-Bop Deluxe.
Their legendary appearance in Long Island in 1976 provides a...

The entire output (two albums) that were originally released on the Vertigo Swirl label, digitally remastered for the first time from the master tapes. A 5 piece of Angus Cullen-vocals, John Heyworth-guitar, Peter Jennings-keyboards Kevin McCarthy...
