A reissue of a stupidly rare Japanese psych/heavy album, originally released on Japanese Vertigo in 1972. They were a short-lived offshoot of Strawberry Path.

"This is the complete concert from April 19, 2006 in Tilburg, Holland, and it features solid camera work and excellent sound. The song selection is very good; it emphasizes some of the best material from last spring's strong double-CD, "Paradox Hotel" (9 of the 17 tracks), with the other tracks cherry-picked from earlier releases (two each from "Stardust We Are," "Space Revolver," and "Adam & Eve," and one each from "Unfold the Future" and "The Rainmaker"). So it's not a "greatest hits" live collection...

"Do you think free jazz has to be completely inaccessible and humorless? Enter the Flying Luttenbachers. This reissue of the cassette originally released on the band's own ugEXPLODE label is the only recording of the original Luttenbacher lineup, which...

This film is sort of a mess, structurally, but the footage is fantastic. It's 80' of live footage. 35' of it is professionally shot film from about 1973 (location unknown to me) and then footage from 2002 in the USA. At $6.00, even if you just want the 35' of 1973 footage, it's an amazing deal!

"This Focus DVD contains excellent vintage material from 1973. And these are all the best pieces from the band (Focus III period), only "Answers? Questions! Questions? Answers!" is missing. The summit...

"Released nearly 25 years ago in a very limited pressing, Folk Studio A's debut has quickly become one of the most rare and sought after lp's coming from Italy.

We are aware that many collectible rarities can be musically very thin, but this is not the case of this stunning masterpiece. Following the footsteps of the British folkprog revival they delivered a shiny little gem that can be easily put on the same level of giants like Mellow Candle, Tudor Lodge, Fairport Convention, Pentangle...

The world's greatest Chilean Krautrock band. The world's only Chilean Krautrock band, but, seriously, these guys are quite great!

"Follakzoid began seven years ago as a trance experience between childhood friends Diego, Juan Pablo, and Domingo from Santiago, Chile. Heavily informed by the heritage of the ancient music of the Andes, the band has learned to integrate this influence with contemporary sounds of their times, creating a rich yet minimal atmosphere. IIIÂ is a four-part minimal...

This 2011 release of two albums reissued (Transluncence" and "Drift Music") and one new album ("Nighthawks") which features the interesting and unlikely pairing of John Foxx (original leader and brain behind Ultravox's early, great period) and Harold...

"This is the kind of album that keeps us 70's rock fanatics on the never-ending quest to discover the elusive "lost masterpiece". FRACTION-"Moon Blood" LP (1970) is without a doubt one of the earliest examples of stoner rock. Blending elements of brain damaged psyche with bombastic drumming and absolutely over the top vocals, FRACTION immediately grabs the listener and virtually crams a hit of acid down their throat. Well, not quite... But FRACTION is the epitome of 70's drug damaged garage rock, and had...

"Stunning heavy psychedelic rock from 1971 by three virtually unknown Mexican groups! Four tracks from the amazing hard-driving and funky EP by Los Papos (released by Orfeon in 1971); four previously unreleased tracks by Los Free Minds, and the only two extant songs by Polvo, an amazing heavy psychedelic rock group from Nuevo Laredo. Los Free Minds was a Mexican Psychedelic Rock trio, formed in 1970 by Jorge Aguilera (guitar, vocals), Jesús Perez [El Jali] and drummer Ernesto Ontiveros. Although invited...

Features such excellent players as Steve Coleman, Cecil McBee, Billy Hart, Jay Hoggard, John Purcell, Bobby McFerring and more!

"This indespendible progressive jazz album is finally available on CD! I'm ordering it today, 'cause it is KILLER! What a shame that when Elektra dumped the Musician label that this and other fine jazz music got locked away for nearly 25 years!"-Dale Summers

'When the Beatles released Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Heart's Club in 1967, they raised the bar for recording groups. Most bands under recording contract had to enlist aid to make higher quality recordings. This was the Fugs answer to Pepper.
Richard Alderson, Warren Smith, Arthur Jenkins, and others helped to ochestrate these songs into full prodution numbers. Beside the recordings of the songs, several comedic dialog selections are interspersed within the tracks, as well as given their own titles.Some of..

"Impossible to find jazz/soul/funk monster by Fusión, issued in Chile in 1975 by ALBA (ALD-041)—a fulsome combination of funk, electric jazz, and soul, with Latin roots. Bassist Enrique Luna had lived and studied art in New York, and knew first-hand...

This lists for $99.98, but we have a limited number of copies with a tiny (I mean tiny) drill hole through the UPC.

"Over three albums, the GHS Trio has established identities away from the bands they have fronted or worked as sidemen. Frank Gambale's electric guitar work with Chick Corea is well-known; Stu Hamm has been a reliable electric bass guitarist since his time with the Steve Vai or Joe Satriani; while drummer Steve Smith's exploits with Journey, his Vital Information, ensemble or his legit jazz groups is well-documented. This collection is dubbed a best-of package, but is more an overview of what the combo...

"Hailed by fans and critics as a symphonic gem, the project of keyboard player and vocalist Angelo Santo Lombardi has taken the world of Italian prog by storm, adding influences of Italian prog giants as Banco, PFM and Orme with the keyboard wizardry of Keith Emerson.

Ritratto di Ballerina is the logic follow-up to its predecessor, while being more complex, compact and with a slightly harder edge. Quality standards remain unchanged, while the...

"This is a live concert over KSAN-FM, S.F. from 1972. Featured are Merl Saunders-organ, Jerry Garcia-guitar, Bill Kruetzmann-drums, and John Kahn-bass. The remastered sound is very good--one of the best of this type I've heard. Every instrument including the bass (which is often muddy sounding) can be heard, The six page booklet has an essay on the music and the gig, along with a few photos.
Garcia loved to play--and when not with his other band (Grateful Dead) he played with a number of friends and.

It's just unbelievably wonderful to see all these unspeakably rare UK jazz titles sneaking out legitimately and remastered. Black Marigolds was recorded in 1966, very early for Argo by the pianist for the very well known (in the UK) Don Rendell/Ian Carr..

"There is absolutely nothing subtle about Salt Lake City noisemongers, Gaza. On their second full -length offering, 2009's He Is Never Coming Back, the group is all about growls and screams, and extreme metal music that instantly jumps between sludge metal and near-grindcore. For extreme metal that reeks of cold, hard reality -- heck, just take a gander at the album's title -- Gaza are a supersonic blast to the noggin, especially such sludge-speed-sludge-speed (get the idea?) ditties as "Bishop"...

Definitive edition remaster of this release, which sounds great! After two fantastic albums in a row and tons of touring, it's the obligitory live album!
Recorded in England 2/73, and featuring spirited takes on tracks from both Nursery Cryme and Foxtrot.

After In A Glass House, Giant and their record label made a concerted effort to 'break the band' in the USA, and the band toured here constantly. Signing with Capitol, they released 3 great studio albums that gave the band a slightly more rockified and...

A troubled 1978 release and the next to the last for the band. Not utterly without merit and there are some really clever parts here and there, but you really can hear the desperation set in. For fans only.

Possibly their most popular album and certainly a great one! I believe it was their highest charting album in their career in the USA. Highly recommended.

JSP Records are the best label overall I've encountered who work in the field of releasing CDs of old jazz and blues recordings. JSP's releases typically undergo extensive (and very expensive) careful and tasteful manual cleanup, and they have become rightly renowned for the highest possible sound quality considering the source material. These releases all come packaged in full jewel cases (no little paper sleeves here) and have full personnel and reasonable liner notes. Highly...

Gibson is a long time performer of avant music (who else played in the premiers of "In C", "Einstein On The Beach" & "Drumming"?) who has spent over 25 years in Philip Glass' ensemble. This reissues his 1st album (originally released on Philip Glass' Chatham Square label in the 1970s) as well as some unissued material.
The original tracks were two long compositions: Visitations I - II, that Gibson describes as 16 multi-track-textured environmental soundscapes. The music presents several layers...

If you like Ethiopian pop music, Gigi, who is a fine vocalist (and also the wife of Bill Laswell) is one of the bigger names to emerge in the 00s from the scene.

This features modern production and dance grooves, married to the unusual scales...

Now this is pretty fascinating and also it's in surprisingly high quality sound. This is the 'home demos' that Giles, Giles & Fripp worked on to get themselves their contract with Decca Records, as well as the demos that they worked on during the period of their contract.
There is plenty of material that is essentially just (sometimes significantly better) alternates of the Giles, Giles & Fripp album, but it gets especially amazing as the disc progresses, as the band adds singer Judy Dyble, multi...

"Former Pink Floyd guitarist David Gilmour is not prolific. Rattle That Lock is only his fourth solo studio album (though it follows his late band's final album, The Endless River, by only ten months). Gilmour recorded some 35 songs for this set, some dating back 18 years. Trimming them to ten couldn't have been easy. Titled for John Milton's second book in Paradise Lost, Rattle That Lock is structured as an informal song cycle to reflect the sometimes random, sometimes weightier thought processes of a ...

"For over forty years Gordon has enjoyed the well-deserved reputation as one of Britain’s greatest guitar players. He made his first recordings in the 1960s as folk artist, but by late 70s he had crossed into the Progressive Rock genre. A trio of albums on the Electric Records label earned Gordon much praise and an ever-increasing fan base. In 1979 he released the album “The Peacock Party” for PVK Records, (also re-released on Esoteric this month), a highly successful project. 1982’s “Airwaves” was his...

Gordon Giltrap is an acoustic guitarist who, during the 70s, managed to cross-over into the progressive rock arena, where he made a few well liked and distinctive releases of the era, with some great personnel involved as well.

"A newly remastered and expanded edition of the classic album “LIVE AT OXFORD” by GORDON GILTRAP. For over forty years Gordon has enjoyed the well-deserved reputation as one of Britain’s greatest guitar players. He made his first recordings in the 1960s as folk artist, but..

"Guitar legend Gordon Giltrap and keyboardist Oliver Wakeman (following his years of touring with the classic progressive rock band YES) release their debut collaborative album 'Ravens & Lullabies'.

The album which features a return for Gordon to his rock roots following a 30 year absence and Oliver's first recorded works since his departure from both Yes and Strawbs. The album has been recorded and mixed by 'Threshold' guitarist Karl Groom (who also mixed the Yes 'Live In Lyon' record which...

"Double Vision / In Vision features Gordon Giltrap and Raymond Burley, each an accomplished guitarist in his own right, playing together in a series of seamless, masterful duets.
This concert collection includes two intimate, full-length performances, as well as an introductory interview with each artist. This DVD captures two specially filmed performances of Gordon Giltrap and Raymond Burley.
Although both artists have completely different styles, they manage to blend both styles together...

Jimmy Giuffre was a swing-era jazz veteran when, starting in the mid/late 50s, he began forging a new, very quiet sound that was, in its own quiet way, just as radical as Ornette's revolution and which paved the way for Americana-jazz, the Claudia Quintet and the entire ECM school!
This features:
Jimmy Giuffre l - clarinet, tenor and baritone
Bob Brookmyer - valve trombonist
Jim Hall - guitar

As you have probably noticed, this group featured no piano, bass or drums, which was..

I saw this great Richmond group whose members also play in other great better and less known ensembles such as Fight the Big Bull, OMBAK, No BS Brass Band, Bio Ritmo, etc. in May, 2010. Led by guitarist and composer Scott Burton, the band also features...

Lol Creme and Kevin Godley got their start with the classy and possibly 'too smart for their own good' pop band 10cc. Then, at the height of that band's fame, they split off on their own & made three fabulous and infamous releases, which mingled their...

"This is a great Gong reunion album. It was released in 1995 from a progressive rock festival in 1994. Most of the "original" members from the Radio Gnome Invisible days are here. The only major missing persons are Steve Hillage and Pierre Moerlen (who was a late comer anyway). This double CD is about 110 minutes long. It is basically the Radio Gnome Invisible trilogy played in order, starting out with few songs the prequel Camembert Electrique.
But, it isn't a stale reproduction of the albums....

Good fusion album with Pierre Moerlin, Mirelle Bauer, Hansford Rowe, Benoit Moerlin + guests Mick Taylor, Allan Holdsworth, Bon Lozaga, Franois Causse & Darryl Way. [Virgin]

I remember being a huge Gong fan, having discovered them just as Daevid was leaving the band, and seeing this in my local shop around Christmas, 1977 and buying it and being really really in love with this raucous, punky take on Gong. And recorded live and sounding great. And who could forget Daevid's cover imploring me not to pay more than $3.50 but "....better to rip it off if you can!" Middle class white boy I am, I paid more AND I didn't rip it off.
Planet Gong was Daevid Allen, Gilli Smyth....

Modern pop from the vocalist of Doves, with a definite emphasis on experimentation within the form.

"Odludek, the solo debut from Doves' Jimi Goodwin, makes up for what it lacks in consistency of tone with a pioneering spirit that both mocks and celebrates the digital age. Genres be damned, Goodwin is at his heart a world-weary Brit-pop songsmith in the vein of Elbow's Guy Garvey, and there is some of that to be found here, but for the most part, Odludek's ten largely disparate tracks play like...

"Recorded live at a museum in Bochum, Germany on March 14, 1989 and released as an LP the following year, Sonic Fiction was the first of many recordings to document the alternately subtle, restless, delicate, and rigorous interaction between German...

Before she was the femme fatale of the west coast psychedelic scene in the Jefferson Airplane, Grace fronted another fine California psych band, The Great Society. They never really had much of a chance, as the band broke up in 1966, but this surviving...

This is the 1st two albums by keyboardist Dave Greenslade's early 70s progressive rock band.

"Dave Greenslade (keys) and Tony Reeves (bass) formed Greenslade in 1972. The two had previously played together in Colosseum and they recruited Dave Lawson (Episode Six) as vocalist. For a drummer the group added Andrew McCulloch (King Crimson, Crazy World of Arthur Brown) and their self-titled album was released the following year. A considerably prolific band, they released two more albums in 1973, the..

"Sometimes, when the rhythm section is really cooking and everybody is together, this feeling of euphoria comes over you." Johnny Griffin.

"This is a fine continuation of Griffin's work from the late 1950's into the early 1960's. The sound is uniformly good ... clean and fairly crisp. The booklet (as usual from Real Gone Jazz) lists titles, dates and personnel. Griffin's style has been called muscular, hard-drivng, and relentless, and for once those terms apply. The albums included are:...

"2009 archive release from the British Blues greats. In September 1976, The Groundhogs were a four piece adding second guitarist Ric Adams to bolster the sound and allow Tony McPhee more space to develop his amazing guitar runs. This Swedish gig was...

"Live classic British rock from The Groundhogs including previously unheard & unreleased rare material from the Crosscut Saw tour in 1976, featuring tracks from that album plus favorites from the Split (1971) & Solid (1974) albums including a 14-minute 'Cherry Red'. Includes 12-page booklet with liner notes & b&w photos."

"I'm glad to see a live cd of the groundhogs that isn't full of their "standards". this was recorded in 1976 and covers tunes from my favorite release "solid", "crosscut saw"...
