Mega Blowout Sale

Great price on this early 80s classic; if you don't already own it, you have no excuse now!

Extremely influential 1979-1980 collaboration between Brian Eno and the leader of the Talking Heads (along with some guest musicians) and a lot of 'found vocalists' mostly taken from broadcasts by radio talk show hosts and evangelists. In pre-sampling days, it was a really radical idea...times have certainly changed! I remember when I worked at a record store there were people coming in every week to ask...

"With a six-inch pompadour, brocaded shirts, rhinestone shades, and a rhythmic, belligerent style of piano playing, Esquerita was the original Little Richard, years before Mr. Penniman tutti-frutti'd his way to stardom.

"If you enjoy the music of bands like Mr. Bungle, Farmers Market, Charming Hostess, and other great fusion bands along those lines, then you'll definitely want to buy this album." - Unearthed.com.

Not sure how this cool, wacky band ended up on The End, which is basically a metal label, but this is really good and features some great violin playing and a lot of Eastern European influences along with crunchy metallic guitars and much more!!

A very cool, odd, unique and unclassifiable band. This has over two hours of live concert footage and a production documentary. The entire running time is 160 minutes...

"During his lifetime, Kimio Eto was considered to be Japan's foremost master of the koto, the ancient 13-string instrument of his native land. He, like so many, was attracted to the koto by both its beautiful tonal qualities and remarkable versatility. In his youth, Eto studied the koto under the great master Michio Miyagi with his first composition for the instrument, Omoide, being published at just seventeen years. Eto would prove to be a prolific composer and a musician of both feeling and...

This is quite late in Gil's career, as he died less than four months after this show! This has Gil leading the 16 piece Laurent Cugny Light Orchestra on November 4, 1987 at the Theatre de la Ville in Paris as well as band rehearsals.

"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 ...

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...

Faust are a rightly legendary experimental German ensemble from the early 1970's. This is almost all of their two posthumous albums which feature the unreleased "Faust V/Faust Party 3" album and other lost recordings before they dissolved in the 70's.

This contains their great 1973 Top Gear performance and a substantial amount of extra material, and even two outtakes from their albums, all of which have never been released!
Despite it saying ‘BBC’, nearly all of this was recorded at Wumme during the group’s classic early 70s period and is like a great lost album by them and even includes their ‘lost’ sixth member, Arnulf Meifurt, who only appears on the 1st album and ‘Tapes’.

"At last, a well made film that captures the intensity, caprice, craziness and visionary beauty of Faust’s late ’90s performances, when, for a moment the core members of the original band were temporarily reconciled. Professionally filmed at the...

This 5 CD set contains all Faust's early classic albums, a John Peel session and unreleased early material.
The 40 page booklet is stuffed with unpublished photos, stills from super 8 footage of the famous studio at Wumme, and revealing interviews with many of the key players of the Faust story.
Included is:
Faust
So Far
Faust Tapes
71 Minutes
BBC Sessions (their great 1973 Top Gear performance and a substantial amount of extra material, all of which have never been...

Janet is a great, great, classically trained guitarist who plays a unique, personal music, usually for solo and/or prepared solo guitar. She's been quietly working for a long time and this, her third release, recorded with the equally great, great (but better, better known) Fred Frith will bring her a lot more attention, which she fully deserves.
Having had a rare chance to see her perform in the East (she opened up for Boud Deun at one of their final shows in 1998), the fact that the public at...

"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 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...

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!

“Ex-Tangerine Dream artist Christopher Franke released his second and third solo efforts simultaneously, following the successful Pacific Coast Highway. First, The London Concert, recorded live at London's Royal Apollo Theatre in October 1991. While three tracks are versions of pieces from Pacific Coast Highway, the material is mostly new, starting...

"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...

"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...

Gravity is one of Fred's most enduring & endearing works. It was his first post-Henry Cow solo album, and he recorded it with the backing of The Muffins on one side of the original album and Samla Mammas Manna on the other + Marc Hollander.
It's the closest thing to a progressive rock disc that Fred has ever released and it's a tuneful yet still avant progressive rock work. This is a classic and is highly recommended!

“1980's GRAVITY represented guitarist Fred Frith's first major break from.

"In 1996, at the end of a two year residency, Fred organised an event at L'Ecole Nationale de Musique de Villeurbanne in France involving as many of the students as possible, grouped according to their departments - early music, rock, African drumming...

Long time Waysiders will remember the limited edition box that we sold with the two albums of this concert a very long time ago. They may also remember the many concerts that Fred performed with this set up in that style in the late 70s/early 80s all over the world. I do.

“Concert recordings made at various venues in Japan in 1981 and released by Recommended Records Japan in 1982 in an edition of 1000. Out of print since, though highly sought after, it has now been transferred and remastered...

"This is a retrospective compendium of Fred's work over the last 17 years, with a lot of new material, perfectly put together and exceptionally listenable start to finish- an enlightening journey. It's my favourite of Fred's works in recent times. Close composition for electric and acoustic resources, tapework, concrete constructions, songs, sound effects and noise-art improvisations."
Guests included:
Iva Bittova, Tom Cora, Jean Derome, Haco, Tim Hodgkinson, Lars Hollmer, Rene Lussier...

This is the soundtrack to the film which followed Fred touring & playing in the late 80's, when he was actively on the road all the time. This functions as a sort of a 'best of' sampler, featuring many aspects of his work, some of which can be found on other albums, but most of which is only available here.
This includes many great players: Tom Cora, Haco, Zeena Parkins, John Zorn, Rene Lussier, Bob Ostertag, Lars Hollmer, Eino Haapala, Iva Bittova, Hans Bruniusson, Joey Barron, and many many others..

“With an all-star line-up that features Tenko, John Zorn and Christian Marclay (with guest Jim Staley on trombone), Technology of Tears started life in New York in 1986 as a dance commission by Rosalind Newman.
Fred took this opportunity to experiment with Henry Kaiser's brand new synclavier (the absolute state-of-the-art sampling and processing technology of the time - Henry had to take out a second mortgage on his house to buy it). It was the sophisticated sampling that fascinated Fred, and the...

"An instant Fred classic, ‘Happy End’ presents two, related, small-ensemble works for 6 and 7 musicians respectively - mostly strings of one sort or another, with percussion, flute, clarinet and electronics. Fred, violinist Carla Kilsteht and percussionist Willie Wynant play throughout providing continuity across the pieces, as the music constantly unfolds into new textures and dialects. Melody, harmony and rhythm are omnipresent, though not always obviously colluding, and the music moves with a...

''Written for a dance programme, this is Fred's hommage, in three pieces to the work and influence of John Cage, Earl Brown and Morton Feldman. Beautifully conceived and executed and full of minute and fascinating detail. Also an unalloyed pleasure to listen to; one of my favourites from Fred's recent output.''-Chris Cutler

“The long-awaited follow up to their first release on Derek Bailey's Incus label and a kind of prequel, going back to the time when Fred was playing home-made instruments and John was using mouthpieces and duck-calls as much or more than alto sax; this was back in the New York glory days when 100 new ideas popped up somewhere every day, and these performances lie right at the fringe of what most people would accept as "music".
Anyone wanting to get back to one of the roots of what later became known..
