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?...

“This is Julian Cope with members of Spiritualized, playing heavy, psychedelic punk! Wah-wah-ed up to the max, these - mostly lengthy - pieces groove along with a swagger and abandon that is rarely heard of these days. Herein, Copey rolls together his longtime love affair with the hallowed Stooges/Velvets/MC5 trio along with a new found love for all things proto-metal, particularly the 3 founding fathers of HM; Blue Cheer, Black Sabbath and Grand Funk Railroad. I dare say our OTT Japanese friends like...

"With this record from 1972, Brainstorm, led by future Guru Guru stalwart Roland Schaeffer, established themselves as one of Germany’s premier bands. Their complex Krautrock, based on strange harmonics (thanks to Schaeffer’s enthusiasm for Jimi Hendrix...

The great third album (of 3 great ones and then a number of not so great ones) by this Swiss band who operated in Germany and are thought of as being a 'krautrock' band and who actually were in terms of the music and the spirit, if not actually of German nationality. There have been multiple editions of this album and I don't know what the story is, but this is the best-sounding version that I know of; everything flowed just as nicely as it did in that patchouli-scented, blacklight-illuminated room in....

"Three old hands out of Soft Machine, Gong and Henry Cow stretch already flexible musical material into one shape after another, then tie it in knots and generally have a fun with it. High quality recordings combined with seat-of-the-pants playing keep the tension high, underpinning a richly labile music, full of shape and colour that is constantly in motion. Compiled from recent concert recordings in Berlin, London and Tel Aviv, this clutch of extended songs should be to the taste of anyone familiar...

"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..

"2016 archive collection or rare recordings from the British rocker best known for his flamboyant theatrical performances, powerful wide-ranging operatic voice and his 1968 #1 hit "Fire". Brown has been lead singer of various groups, most notably The Crazy World of Arthur Brown and Kingdom Come, followed by a varied solo career as well as associations with Hawkwind, The Who, Jimi Hendrix, Klaus Schulze, and Frank Zappa. Though Brown has had limited commercial success, he has been a significant influence...

"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 the first ever CD release of the 1973 album by the legendary lyricist, poet and musician Pete Brown.
Famed for his lyrical contributions to the music of Jack Bruce, both for Cream and for Bruce’s solo work, and also as a Poet and performer in his own right, Pete Brown rightly stands as one of the legendary figures of the Beat and Rock Generation of the 1960s and 70s.
Following his work with the band Piblokto! and with musician Graham Bond, he recorded "THE NOT FORGOTTEN ASSOCIATION”..

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...

“Warehouse find of the last copies of this long unavailable 2000 release. Jumping Off The Page is a studio recording by the quartet of Rob Brown (alto sax, flute), Roy Campbell (trumpet), Chris Lightcap (bass), and Jackson Krall (drums).”

"Alto saxophonist and flutist Rob Brown is often featured in the context of other leaders' recordings as an inventive improviser who has enough of the early AACM in him to stretch time, space, and harmonic ideas, and enough of the late-'50s hard bop tradition...

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.

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.

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

“This is intelligent fusion -- intricately crafted, high energy, and technically impressive.
Bill Bruford has distinguished himself from the majority of rock musicians with a consistent drive to experiment and challenge himself artistically. He composes innovative tunes with subtle rhythmic twists, often in odd meters, and his drumming is always musical and very precise.
This is the third studio release of the fusion group that he assembled in 1977. Gradually Going Tornado attempted to further..

This is the soundtrack to a TV broadcast that was the second of only two performances that this version of the band (including Annette) made(!!) at Oxford Polytechnic, England, on March 7th 1979. Performed by Allan Holdsworth-guitar, Dave Stewart-keyboards, Jeff Berlin-bass and Bill Bruford-drums, with wonderful singer Annette Peacock guesting on a couple of tracks, this is 8 songs/43 minutes long, taken from Feels Good To Me and One of a Kind.
For my money, Bruford were one of the very last...

Taken from a radio broadcast by the touring-band version of Bruford: Dave Stewart-keyboards, John Clark-guitar, Jeff Berlin-bass and Bill-drums. Spirited, live, edgy ("aproximate", says Dave Stewart) versions of tunes from the great 1st two albums Feels Good To Me and One Of A Kind.

“A live N.Y.C. radio broadcast by Bill Bruford and his band in July 1979, The Bruford Tapes features material from his Feels Good to Me and One of a Kind albums. Although the mix is shaky, the playing is not. Bruford..

“Earthworks' sophomore lineup of Bill Bruford (drums), Patrick Clahar (saxes), Mark Hodgson (upright bass) and Steve Hamilton (piano) has produced an effort worth every penny to jazz and fusion fans alike. Although fans of traditional jazz may find more progressive efforts a bit harsh to the ears, this release takes Bruford back to his roots in jazz and will certainly appeal to even those that claim to be "purists."
Absent are the electronic keys and chordal drums prevalent in earlier Earthworks...

“How great to watch Bruford explain how he creates drumming riffs and patterns. His insight about his left hand technique, and what that has meant to him as a musician, was particularly valuable. A real treat to watch him drum up close, and to watch the King Crimson footage. The interview of Steve Howe concerning Bruford's contribution to YES was dead-on. Nice video.”

“Being a big fan of Neil Peart's expansive drumming dvds, I was a little edgy to find out this Bruford DVD was only half an...

This 1977 release was the first release by Bill’s jazz outfit that, with varying personnel, saw the majority of his work for 30 years!

“When Bill Bruford issued the first Earthworks album, it was the freshest thing in jazz in a decade: fun, lively, modern. Today it sounds occasionally dated but still wears well, due to the strength of the compositions. This is my second copy so I am not disappointed, but then I am more likely to listen to rock music than jazz, so I'm not put off hearing aspects...

“When Bill Bruford emerged from Yes, his reputation as a drumming legend was firmly established. He then went on to refine and expand his individual technique and style with King Crimson. His solo career, while not as commercially successful as those bands, has also been impressive. His explorations with Allan Holdsworth continued to carry the fusion torch with dignity.
Never one to rest on his laurels, Bruford continued to search for different contexts in which to express his musical and percussive..

“Percussionist Bill Bruford (best known for his work with King Crimson) and pianist Michiel Borstlap (who has collaborated with Wayne Shorter and Herbie Hancock) stretch the boundaries of both jazz and progressive rock.
As much as a duo of piano and drums might seem a limited vehicle for creating music, the talent and sheer brilliance of these two musicians proves all the skeptics wrong. There are no limits to human imagination and creativity, which are evidently present here.
This music needs..

Percussionist Bill Bruford (best known for his work with King Crimson) and pianist Michiel Borstlap (who has collaborated with Wayne Shorter and Herbie Hancock) stretch the boundaries of both jazz and progressive rock in this concert video, recorded during a pair of 2002 performances in Holland. Bill Bruford/Michiel Borstlap: In Concert in Holland features these master musicians improvising on a set of 12 songs; selections include &Game of Chess," &"Two Left Shoes," &"Peacock Strut," &"Mister B.B.,"...

"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...

"David Buddin’s “Canticles” CD is an electronic music realization of the instrumental parts for a six movement chamber work featuring soprano voice. The music is vigorous, dissonant, rhythmically complex and exhilarating. Influenced heavily by the thrust of the Western classical music tradition, Buddin is a modern musical maverick in the lineage of radical, iconoclastic American composers like Charles Ives, Carl Ruggles, Elliott Carter, Ralph Shapey and Milton Babbitt. The timbral character of this...

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."

Roberto Cacciapaglia made two amazingly great, space / minimal albums in the late 70s / early 80s.

This is his latest, released in 2014, which is still systems music, but it is more 'romantic' sounding and performed on solo piano ala some of Phillip Glass' piano works.

It's good. It isn't fabulous (at least not for this old minimalist), but we have a tiny number of copies at a relatively very low price for fans and completists.

Back again ONE LAST TIME. 50% off the regular price, while they last! This really is it, I think for this one at this price....

This is a pretty great, very, very rare album from Italy. Using a lineup of acoustic piano, electric bass and drums, this has the sound of a jazz trio playing progressive rock. The music swings at points but there's too much 'trickery' and stop/start-ness going on for this to really be considered a jazz album. As Bill said when we were working and this was playing....

"Issued for the XLV Biennale di Venezia with support from The Institute For Contemporary Art, New York, Mudima Fondazione per l'Arte Contemporanea, Milan, Italy. All John Cage excerpts are from John Cage's "Silence and One Year from Monday," recorded at 222 Bowery in New York City, December 1968 and March 1969, courtesy of Giorno Poetry Systems.

"Digitally remastered edition of this 1974 album from the groundbreaking Alt-Rock icon and former co-leader of the Velvet Underground. Comes housed in a miniature LP sleeve. This solo album was released in 1974, six years after John Cale left the foundational punk band he cofounded, the Velvet Underground. It's moody ballads and edgy pop tunes include such standout tracks as "Ship of Fools" and the album's title track."

"Helen of Troy is a collection of adventurous musical compositions by John Cale that probe the border between pop and avant garde art song. Phil Collins joins Cale's backing ensemble that also includes Brian Eno and Chris Spedding."

Digitally remastered edition of this 1975 album from the groundbreaking Alt-Rock icon and former co-leader of the Velvet Underground. Comes housed in a miniature LP sleeve. John Cale teamed up with several luminary British art rockers on the 1975 album Slow Dazzle that ranges from classic rock and roll on tracks like "Guts" and "Dirty Ass Rock 'N' Roll" to his chilling, gothic version of "Heartbreak Hotel."

2004 studio album which is produced by Tony Levin. Tony is just the producer this time around, and doesn't actually perform on the CD, so this album just concentrates on the trio and their work. And, of course, the band always has one or two covers of well known pieces and this time it is the "Riders" medley: Ghost Riders In The Sky turning into Riders On The Storm! This also includes a video, that is watchable on your computer.

"Cab Calloway was a gloriously outsized manifestation of all that was frantic in the first full flowering of prohibition-era jazz. Dressed with all the flash of a brand new Cadillac, leading a crack band who could swing and sway with both abandon and...

The Camberwell Now were led by Charles Hayward, the drumming/vocalist mastermind behind This Heat, and was the band that he formed immediately after This Heat broke up.
They were released an album and 2 EPs in their lifetime, and this includes all of them in complete, chronological form, plus a track from a sampler.
Their sound was very informed by the This Heat esthetic, with more creative usages of drones than before and some incredible basswork.
While they didn't always quite...

Their follow up to Raindances, with the same killer lineup of Peter Bardens, Andy Latimer, Mel Collins, Richard Sinclair and Andy Ward. "As a life long Camel fan, I am used to certain quarters criticising Camel's change of style for this album. Sinclai...

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...

Neil Campbell (classical and acoustic guitars, bass guitar, harpsichord, harmonium, synthesizer, glockenspiel, baby vibes, wind chimes, sea drum, shouts and handclaps)
Jon Lawton (percussion programming, shakers and handclaps)
Laurence Cocchiara (violins)
Helen Maher (accordion on track 10)


Lovely and engaging, very orchestral progressive music featuring Neil's classical and acoustic guitars with a full band sound.
We've carried Neil's work for years and he always does...

“Warehouse find of the last copies of this long unavailable 1998 release. The Pyramid Trio, led by Roy Campbell, has been on the New York scene since 1984. Ancestral Homeland is their first domestic release and it features the original line-up of Campbell (trumpet, flute, and percussion), William Parker (bass, percussion) and Zen Matsuura (drums). The music of this group is based on the music of the world, both composed and improvised. By encompassing African, Native American and jazz structures, the...

"CVB's self-titled third album generally differs little from II & III, continuing the blend of wistfully weird lyrics, any number of musical touches from all over the map and good-time vibes. The opening "Good Guys & Bad Guys" proves that much, with reggae, folk, country and more stewed together as Lowery plaintively sings about lawyers and the people in Russia and the like. From there on in it's another collection of generally short and generally fun ditties, but with a few more tweaks here and there...

Fifth great album by this world-class, progressive, technical metal, math-rock instrumental quintet. Using guitars, multi-keyboards, bass and drums, their sound is somewhere between Behold...The Arctopus, The Fucking Champs, Gordian Knot and 1980s King...

This is a repackaging of disc two - one of the discs of great stuff from the now long out of print Grow Fins box set, so it's utterly worthless if you own that and really good and worthwhile (and quite good sounding for 50 year old unreleased recordings) if you don't!

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...
