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 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...

"A quartet from Turin that was formed in the second half of the seventies, playing their instrumental jazz-rock all over northern Italy. The brothers Luca and Enrico Morandi had previously played in Assoluto Naturale, a band closer to progressive rock...

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...

"Giuseppe Frippi's current solo project were conceived as an opportunity to explore some intense and intimate musical tendencies which were somehow attenuated in the previous collective work, that in this new context can rise out with all their...

"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"...

"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.

Gentle Giant's 2nd album, and, for the time it was released in 1971, an extremely adventurous rock work (and one with a stupendously ugly cover!).

I remember getting this around 1973/74 and reading the liner notes and devouring the following: "It is our goal to expand the frontiers of popular music at the risk of being very unpopular. We have recorded each composition with one thought - that it should be unique, adventurous and fascinating. It has taken every shred of our combined musical and...

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.

This reissues the band's fifth, possibly greatest & rarest work, as it was not released in the USA. This was their first without Phil Shulman, and the sound points towards the more 'definitely rock-yet-really-challenging' sound that they went for after...

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.

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...

"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...

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]

This is now out of print!
Extremely high quality footage of Gong, finally released for all to see!

"At long last the simply wonderful Gong DVD from the French Television vaults is now available to buy. The material on the DVD features two distinct periods of the bands history with the earliest footage coming from an in the studio performance filmed in 1971 for French television. This is a rare outing and a rare line up of the band which during this session featured Daevid Allen, Gilli Smyth...

Daevid Allen's final Gong recording. This is a seriously great new work by the current line-up of Gong. Does it sound like "You"? Well, yes and no, but what it mostly sounds like is Daevid with a bunch of young, energized musicians, including Kavus Torabi (Knifeworld, Guapo), Dave Sturt (Jade Warrior) and others, all of whom bring great playing & writing and fresh blood to both. Highly recommended to anyone who loves this band; you won't be disappointed!

The enduring legend that is Gong - the...

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...

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"...

Alto saxophonist and (perhaps more lastingly) fine composer Gigi Gryce went into teaching by 1961, leaving music behind, but he also left behind some great albums and some great, classic tunes.
On this set you get:
When Farmer Met Gryce (1954)
Nica's Tempo (1955)
Jazz Lab (with Donald Byrd) (1957)
Modern Jazz Perspective (with Donald Byrd) (1957)
Sayin' Something (1960)
The Hap'nin's (1960)
The Rat Race Blues (1960)
Reminiscin' (1960)

The fifth Guru Guru album, and the final one with the great guitarist Ax Genrich, was their first on a major label and finds them mellowing out a bit, at least compared to Hinten and maybe working a bit more in the 'typical Krautrock' (if there was such a thing) vein. Still lots of guitar splaying by Ax.
Never before on CD, this is remastered and includes an entire, never-before seen or heard bonus disc of the band recorded live at the Krefeld Festival in 1973, in good, not great sound, but it's a...

A really fine album of piano and drum duets from a somewhat unlikely pair!

"The debut Brian Haas & Matt Chamberlain album Frames features 11 instrumental compositions that spiral through the tempered scale. A through-composed work for piano and percussion, it was written entirely by Haas, the internationally renowned pianist and founder of Jacob Fred Jazz Odyssey. Now based in Santa Fe, Haas wrote Frames as a suite, equally influenced by stride piano masters Earl Hines, James P. Johnson...

"Defector is Steve Hackett's highest charting album in the UK (No.9). Released in 1980, it featured the same band as Spectral Mornings. The deluxe edition features a new remaster of the album along with a CD of Steve Hackett's set at the Reading Festival in1980. There is also a DVD which features a pseudo 5.1 Surround Sound Up-mix derived from the original stereo masters."
