"The trio of Sandy Ewen (guitar), Damon Smith (bass) and Weasel Walter (drums) issues forth a 78-minute CD containing nothing short of alien technique and structural disruption. The music offers complete modernist abstraction with teeth and urgency. It is the sound of extreme polyphony and counterpoint, veering radically from density to space, pinprick to roar within instants. The eight pieces here range from 4 to 17 minutes in length and each retain their own tight focus. There are no lulls. There is....

"New York City's long-reigning experimental electronics collective Excepter went through a period of great transition following their massive 2010 double album Presidence. Member Clare Amory died of cancer in 2011 and other members of the band relocated shortly afterwards. Familiar, the first work from the band after regrouping, finds the collective still incredibly strange, but moving their free-form electronics and Kraut/early-industrial-inspired sound closer to the realm of pop music. Opening track...

This is a little bit low-key, which might make it a little hard to immediately appreciate, but listen to it with your full attention and this will definitely charm. This band is a sextet of two guitars, accordion/piano, double bass, drums and...

Fantastic sounding, remastered, bonus-track laden, large booklet with rare photos designed by the great Phil Smee-studded, remastered version of Fairport's fourth album.

"For their fourth album, Fairport Convention released what is regarded by many as not only the best record in their history but also one of the seminal English folk-rock albums of all time. This was also the album that marked the transformation of the group from, essentially, a rock band that utilized folk music (in tandem with...

This is a recording of one of the greatest line-ups of this great band, recorded live, nearly a decade after they had last played together, and the concert that started their annual Cropedy Festival event.
Performing here are Dave Swarbrick, Richard Thompson, Simon Nicol, Dave Pegg, Dave Mattacks, Bruce Rowland with guest appearances by Judy Dyble & Ralph McTell!

"This is really a great find. The Full House lineup reunites, plus Rowlands (presumably on additional percussion~ Mattacks is on ...

Fantastic sounding, remastered, bonus-track laden, large booklet with rare photos designed by the great Phil Smee-studded, remastered version of Fairport's third album.

"Richard Thompson and Sandy Denny shine throughout this record, which is considered by some to be their Fairport peak together. The second album by a tragically short-lived Fairport Convention lineup. It seems top-heavy with Dylan tunes, three of them included, but they're done with such verve and freshness that they seem....

Fantastic sounding, remastered, bonus-track laden, large booklet with rare photos designed by the great Phil Smee-studded, remastered version of Fairport's second album, and their first with Sandy Denny.

"Sandy Denny's haunting, ethereal vocals gave Fairport a big boost on her debut with the group. A more folk-based album than their initial effort, What We Did on Our Holidays was divided between original material and a few well-chosen covers. This contains several of their greatest moments...

Showing its age a little bit, but this is overall a very listenable radio broadcast from 42 years ago!

"Live archive release from the British folk legends. From 1974 with the classic line up of Sandy Denny, Dave Pegg, Dave Mattacks, Jerry Donahue, Dave Swarbrick, and Trevor Lucas.
Recorded at the famous Long Island club My Father's Place. Sandy Denny had rejoined the band for this tour and the material was a mixture of solo material and songs associated with the band. The recording has a...

Note: New, sealed copy. Has very slightly dinged upper right corner. It's not too bad, just not perfect, so we knocked $10 dollars off.

First-ever vinyl reissue. This is a deluxe re-release from the master tape, in a hand-numbered edtion of 1000.
In the 40-page, lp-sized insert there is the usual Garden Of Delights detailed band history in German and English, a detailed discography, as well as plenty of cover and label reproductions, many poster repros, and photographs of the artists...

2014 edition, "remastered from original tapes by Peter J Reynolds in 2012". Included is a big booklet with some nice clippings from back in the day and an essay, as well as the single "In My Own Time / Seasons".

How to explain Family's 5th album (1971) 30 years later? Take a idiosyncratic vocalist, who, like Peter Hammill or Don Van Vliet you either grow to love or hate (Roger Chapman) combine his talents with a standard guitar-led rock format, but add a multi-instrumentalist who plays vibes....

François is, of course, best known for being in Magma for their 1st two albums and then forming Zao, one of the earlier and better French jazz/rock bands. This 1999 release was the firest of two by the band 'Faton' whom he named after himself(!)
The group is
Acoustic Bass – Thierry Colson
Drums – Olivier Bonny
Percussion – Charly Doll
Piano – Faton Cahen
Violin – Nicolas Krassik

"Another Time, Another Place isn't as immediately thrilling as Ferry's solo debut, but still is a great listen. The same core band that backed Ferry up on the earlier record stays more or less in place here. If, like Roxy over the years, this collection is a touch less frenetic at points in comparison to Ferry's earlier solo stab, the opening blast through "The 'In' Crowd" doesn't show it. Porter's guitar rips along as intensely as Phil Manzanera's can, and the whole thing makes Dobie Gray's original...

Simultaneously with Roxy Music, Mr Roxy Music released a number of solo albums.
For my money,some of them were pretty decent (if you are a big fan of Bryan) and some of them were quite good.
This one, his fifth, and written and recorded when his wife ran off with Mick Jagger, is possibly the best of all of them; heartbreak can do that to you!

Bobby Few-piano and vocals, Raymond Dumbe-bass and Noel McGhie-drums. Bobby's a great pianist, but he seems to want to be a cabaret singer on this album. "Jazz pianist Bobby Few was raised in a neighborhood in the Shaker Heights section of Cleveland, O...

"Composed as the soundtrack to director John Grierson's landmark 1929 documentary film Drifters, Field Music's fifth effort, 2015's Music for Drifters, is the group's first all-instrumental album.
A silent film, Drifters documents the difficult, often treacherous lives of a group of North Sea herring fisherman. Fittingly, David and Peter Brewis, the brothers who make up Field Music, grew up in Sunderland, a city located on England's east coast in close proximity to the North Sea.
While Field...

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 troupe's third release and their first to be based around a single, unifying theme. Very funny, smart and even a bit touching.

Firesign's fourth album and a classic of comedy/not comedy. And at a fantastic price. Learn all the lines like I did in High School and dazzle/bore your friends! This picks up exactly where "Don't Crush" left off, with the familiar sound of...

This is the expanded version which comes with the bonus 3" CD!
"One of the Flaming Lips' greatest strengths is how vividly they express emotions. For most of their career, they've focused on capturing wide-eyed wonder, unbridled glee, and the occasional poignant moment, but The Terror proves they're just as good at channeling despair. Embryonic hinted at this darker shift, but here it comes to a head: sparked by Wayne Coyne's separation from his longtime partner and Steven Drozd's struggles with...

"Though it may seem like a quaint, family-friendly entry into their iconic discography, the Beatles made major waves with the release of their eighth album, Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band, in 1967. With wildly intricate and far-out production that wowed listeners, and possible references to drugs and counterculture to freak out the establishment, the proto-concept album would become a major influence on psychedelic music for decades to come. Looking to revisit this landmark album, Oklahoma's...

"In 2005 Chris Funk (the guitarist of The Decemberists) and his family moved into their new home in the historic Mississippi neighborhood in Portland, OR. He would play various instruments on his porch during hot summer night which caught the attention...

"Anyone who saw the Flecktones in their early days probably told you that it was an amazing experience, and a big part of that praise undoubtedly focused on the group's improvised jams. With Victor Wooten sometimes playing two basses simultaneously and Fleck wandering through the audience picking cosmic banjo lines, their shows were spectacles to be enjoyed for the simple thrill of hearing virtuosos play music that was mind-boggling but somehow utterly accessible. ..
The concert was recorded with...

"...the 1977 debut album by the Canadian Progressive Rock group FM. The band began life in 1976 with CAMERON HAWKINS (Synthesisers, Bass, Vocals) and NASH..

FM were a pretty great Canadian progressive rock/art-rock trio who released a number of good works in the early-mid 1970s, who gradually got less and less interesting, and who eventually gave it up in the 80s.

This is the first new FM album in over 25 years!

"Transformation is a very apt title for Canadian Prog veterans FM, for not only has their music transformed numerous times over the years, so has their line-up. Joining bassist/keyboard player...

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...

"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...

"The Festival Rock y Ruedas de Avándaro (also known as the Festival de Avándaro or simply Avándaro) was a historic Mexican rock festival held on September 11–12, 1971, on the shores of Lake Avándaro near the Avándaro Golf Club, in a hamlet called Tenantongo, near the town of Valle de Bravo in the central State of Mexico. It has been compared to the American Woodstock festival[3] for its psychedelic music, counterculture imagery and artwork, and open drug use."-Wikipedia

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

"This is another excellent effort by Chico Freeman, who is heard on tenor, flute and bass clarinet. The instrumentation varies on each selection during the LP, which also features trumpeter Wallace Roney, pianist Clyde Criner, bassist Cecil McBee, drummer Billy Hart, and Jack DeJohnette on drums and piano. Other than Thelonious Monk's "Jackie-ing" (Monk had recently passed away), the repertoire is comprised of originals by Freeman, McBee and Criner. Even if none of the songs individually caught on, they...

"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...

"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...

"This album, the ninth (and most recent) volume of the John Noise Manis-curated Gamelan of Central Java, is a collection focusing on vocal works and sung poetry. Most of the pieces feature the solo vocals of Nyi Cendaniraras, although several feature...

"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...

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"...

"Drummer from Calabria, Roberto Genco recorded and privately released his only album, Beyond the life (Oltre la vita) in 1977.
With an excellent technical and recording quality, considering it's a private production, the LP is in the jazz-rock style, and contains five long tracks with English lyrics, sung by Genco himself, helped from very good musicians like guitarist Giorgio Cocilovo and sax and flute player Hugo Heredia. A very nice record, sadly little known..."-Italianprog.com...

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.
