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...

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 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!

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...

So, I saw this young band from Chicago at a house concert a couple of weeks ago. They were very good and very cool and the show I saw was the 1st show of a 2 month tour all the way across the USA and back.

They don't sound anything like it...

Lorraine Bailey – vocals, keys, alto saxophone, flute, synth bass
Jack Bouboushian – vocals, guitar, organ, microphone
Bill Miller – drum kit, percussion
Matt Puhr – bass

Crown Larks are an excellent Chicago band who play a cool unique progressive rock with heavy psych influences. I stumbled upon them a couple of years ago and they impressed and I was a instant convert!

"2014 album from the reunited British Prog Rock band. Curved Air features original members Sonja Kristina and Florian Pilkington-Misa with classic era guitarist Kirby Gregory. They are joined by violinist Paul Sax, keyboardist Robert Norton and bass player Chris Harris. NORTH STAR is the band's first album featuring new studio material since 1976. The full length CD features a mixture of re-recordings, cover songs and seven new original songs."

These are Ivor's very first recordings from the late 50's and early 60's, reissued for the very first time. 28 tracks of stories, songs and prose. Has a nice 12 page booklet of photos and notes by Mark Powell, who also oversaw this reissue.

"Out of all the bizarre performers championed by John Peel, Ivor Cutler stands as one of the most curious and endearing. To a neophyte, his work may not, initially, seem that noteworthy. He reads stories and poems -- there is little distinction between the...

"Link Davis was probably the foremost Cajun fiddler of his generation. He not only excelled in the old timely tradition he was raised in, but was a hit artist in the Jazz influenced western swing field. He certainly prefigured what was to become...

IMO, this is the last really good Miles Davis album and it followed a number of not very good ones and was followed by more not very good ones. Of course the label sat on it for years before it finally came out. Is it unbelivably brilliant? No, but...


This album rather gently began the electric period of Miles' career. Herbie is on half the tracks playing electric piano, while Chick is on the other half on electric piano. 1968 and you can early the earliest traces of rock and funk in his music here....

When Miles stopped making music in 1975, he went out on (one of his many) career high notes, as this great show attests. Excellent radio broadcast/soundboard sound.

"On his tour of Japan in early 1975, Miles Davis presented some of the most...

"The cover image alone for this 1968 release speaks loudly and clearly of something different: it looks like some weird rock record. And while it's not exactly that, Miles in the Sky hints loudly at something new, an upstart sound that would upset jazz...

"Nefertiti, one of 1967's most interesting collections of music, is a landmark album and unquestionably one of the finest efforts by Miles and his superior cast of players. The album is a rarity for the group in a few ways- Miles does not contirubte a...

Of all the great, crazy-ass albums Miles released in his drug-addled but musically brilliant 1970s period, there was nothing as crazy or as utterly confoundingly brilliant as On The Corner. Completely inspired by Sly and the Family Stone and...

"In 1963, Miles Davis was at a transitional point in his career, without a regular group and wondering what his future musical direction would be. At the time he recorded the music heard on this CD, he was in the process of forming a new band, as can...

"In a very short time, this has quickly become one of my favorite Miles Davis CD's. This is unexpected in that this CD is from a time when Miles was transitioning band members without a whole lot of stability. The album has...

"May 1967 was the beginning of an amazing burst of studio creativity for Miles Davis; the first recordings in that burst are on this album. Sorcerer is even darker and moodier than its predecessor, Miles Smiles. (And even for a Miles Davis album...

One of the most instantly recognizable voices of jazz of the 50s, 60s and beyond. She influenced lots of indie rock bands' female vocalists with her youthful style.

When Blossom Dearie first emerged as a solo artist she was already unique in many ways. Straightaway there was that voice - kittenish, intimate, coquettish and understated where so many other jazz divas were straining to belt out every song. With the fascinating 1957-58 albums 'Give Him the Ooh-la-la' and 'Once Upon a Summertime'...

Yes, that's her real name that she was born with. One of the most instantly recognizable voices of jazz of the 50s, 60s and beyond. She influenced lots of indie rock bands' female vocalists with her youthful style.

"It is hard to listen to Blossom Dearie and not fall in love with what she does. As a singer and pianist she is the very definition of charm, playful sophistication and understatement. When she sings, she distils the beauty and meaning of the lyric. No unnecessary adornment or displays o

NOTE: These are new copies, but they are not sealed and there is a sticker on the front of the 'paper wallet' holder, and there may be a small amount of bending with the paper wallet.

"The Decemberists belatedly embraced their indie pop sensibilities (or at very least their fondness for R.E.M.) on 2011's The King Is Dead, and were rewarded with a number one chart placing and the group's greatest commercial success to date, leading some to wonder if Colin Meloy and his bandmates were going...

Begun as an Italian jazz rock band in the '70s featuring Fiorenzo Michele Bonansone (keyboards, cello, vocals), Marco Di Castri (guitar, sax), Furio Di Castri (bass) and Enrico Grosso (drums), Dedalus released two albums in 1973 and 1974.

In 2003 Bonansone decided to revive the spirit of Dedalus. Assisted by two classical musicians and a drummer with a thing for funky and African rhythms, he released "Nomos Apache Alpha" as the Bonansone Dedalus Group.

One of the very greatest progressive hard rock bands (yes, progressive; just listen to Jon Lord's organ work!) of the early 70s! This is really where it all begins for them, imo.

Classic, early, heavy, heavy progressive hard rock from the BBC's archives in 1970 and 1972. Lots and lots of Ritchie and Jon Lord, but, really, lots and lots of everyone.

"Led Zeppelin's fourth album, Black Sabbath's Paranoid, and Deep Purple's Machine Head have stood the test of time as the Holy Trinity of English hard rock and heavy metal, serving as the fundamental blueprints followed by virtually every heavy rock &...

One of the very greatest progressive hard rock bands (yes, progressive; just listen to Jon Lord's organ work!) of the early 70s, captured at their peak, live in Japan in 1972. Yes, this is where "Smoke On The Water" comes from, but honestly, it's one...

"Previously unheard material recorded on a quarter track tape machine at Alex Campbell’s home on August 5th 1967, captured just one month after Sandy recorded All Our Own Work. Unknown to exist for decades until a cassette turned up recently, Strawbs’...

Nicely done remaster with four bonus tracks.

"With Like an Old Fashioned Waltz, Sandy Denny expands on the more polished moments that her previous work, Sandy (1972), had suggested. The tone throughout most of the record is melancholy and personal, with gentle piano, rich strings, and barely a trace of her British folk roots. "Solo," one of her best songs, opens the album with a sense of apprehension and yearning, while cuts such as the beautifully vivid title track, the longing "At the End of...

"Rendezvous is Sandy Denny's last album, and although it's somewhat uneven in quality, I think it's fitting that this should be her last. The mood is stately, solemn and the sadness she can voice so well has a darker hue than usual.

On side one, the best tracks are the jazzy "Gold Dust" and the beautiful "One way donkey ride". Side two is the strongest side I think, starting off with the gorgeous "I'm a dreamer", followed by the masterpiece on this album, which is "All our days". I would have...

Nicely done remaster with five bonus tracks.

"Sandy Denny's second post-Fairport solo offering, produced by (then-future) husband Trevor Lucas, is a beautiful blend of the traditional style with which she is most often associated and a slightly more lavish sound that would become more prevalent in her later work. Lucas does an excellent job of balancing the two and creating an exquisite backdrop for Denny's gorgeous songs and majestic voice. Nearly every track has the radiance and timelessness of...
