Mega Blowout Sale

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...

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 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.

What is a 'Fission Trip', you ask? Why, let me tell you:
It's a band led by drummer Ian Wallace, with Mel Collins, (guest) Adrian Belew and other players.

"If you enjoy bands like King Crimson, Yes, or especially UK you owe it to yourself to pick this one up. Unfortunately I was only able to give it 4 stars due to the mastering; as this CD is loud. But as l doubt this sleeper will be remastered any time soon, don't let that stop you from picking this up."-K. Croteau ...

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!

"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...

"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

"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...

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.

"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."

“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...

"A reissue of Serge Gainsbourg's cult score for the 1968 French film Le Pacha. These tracks were composed by Serge Gainsbourg at the height of his '60s cool when he was briefly going out with Brigitte Bardot and the couple was on the verge of recording the infamous first version of "Je T'aime... Moi Non Plus" (1969). All the tracks here are arranged by famed arranger Michel Colombier, who had been responsible for some of Gainsbourg's best songs ("Bonnie & Clyde" and "Harley Davidson") and had also...


"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.

"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.

“Carlos Garnett was a reed player who was in one of Miles Davis' last 70s bands. Like a lot of backup musicans, he made some albums you may not know. Black Love is one, and you just GOTTA hear it.
The album is electric funk, with strong bass and great reed playing. The ideas stem from pretty...

“Carlos Garnett’s third album for Muse ‘Let This melody Ring on’ was recorded in 1975 and has a funkier edge than the first two. ‘The Good Shepherd’ is probably the best known track on the album a funky Jazz dance instrumental groove. ‘Senor Trane’ is a lovely modal jazz workout paying homage to the maestro saxophonist. ‘Panama Roots’ is an interesting near 10 minute musical journey to Carlos homeland. Prema sings on the swinging Jazz dancer ‘Samba Seranade’ which really cooks which also features a great...

"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...
