"...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..

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

This is a exploitation...

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...

Fred Frith: Electric Guitar, Organ
Jason Hoopes: Electric Bass, Double Bass
Jordan Glenn: Drums, Percussion

“With their second album the Fred Frith Trio with Jason Hoopes (Bass) and Jordan Glenn (Drums) continues to explore the dimension of the guitar trio. "Closer to the Ground" is all about sound, mood, texture, ideas, and atmosphere. Playful, intimate, and bound together, the Fred Frith Trio reminds us of what listening is all about.
With a lifetime of experience across almost...

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."
Guests included:
Iva Bittova, Tom Cora, Jean Derome, Haco, Tim Hodgkinson, Lars Hollmer, Rene Lussier...

"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.

"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. 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...

This is the sixth in a series of recordings which aims at documenting the most significant aspects of the gamelan tradition of Central Java. Again the repertoire is that of the court of Surakarta whose unmistakable style has for centuries been the insp...

Edge of Tradition is the seventh CD in our series dedicated to the gamelan culture of Central Java and the musicianship of the players - all from the Surakarta conservatory - is again impeccable. The CD offers the listener a fresh and surprising encoun...

"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...

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.

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...

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.

When Chick Corea was just a struggling pianist who was trying to establish his post-Miles solo career, he 'rented' himself and his brand new band, Return to Forever, to Getz for a tour, telling Getz that he came prepared with music for Getz to play.
So, what came out was a tour with lots of Stan's tenor playing over Chick's tunes and a great, modern band (Stanley Clarke! Tony Williams!!) and a definite early electric jazz vibe.
An anomaly in both Chick's and Stan's career, but a very happy one.

Just $3.00 per CD!
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...

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...

"Gorgeous officially licensed US edition of this amazing mystical cosmic mind journey. Sergius Golowin is a Swiss author. In 1973 he got sucked into R.U. Kaiser's Cosmic Courier vortex and recorded this masterwerke. Over three long tracks Golowin provides spoken voice. The bed of music is provided by the Cosmic Jokers - Jerry Berkers, Klaus Schulze, Jurgen Dollase, Witthuser and Westrup, and Jorg Mierke. A melange of Mellotron, flutes, electric and acoustic guitars, and a variety of percussion.....

"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]

The first of the Radio Gnome trilogy, which for many people stands as Daevid's crowning achievement. A great version of the band:
Daevid Allen-guitar/vocals/glissando guitar
Gilli Smyth-vocals
Steve Hillage-guitar
Tim Blake-synths
Didier Malherbe-saxes
Francis Moze-bass
Laurie Allen-drums
perform fun songs all obviously influenced by a huge intake of marijuana. One of my three favorites by the band.
"Look up in the sky! Teapots that can FLY!..."

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....

"A work nearly five years in its evolution, In Remembrance is Delia Gonzalez's first major project since she ended her collaboration with Gavin Russom to focus on her fine art career. Beginning as a set of 16mm films of ballet dancers accompanied by solo piano compositions, Gonzalez found inspiration for the piece in inspiration itself: In Remembrance celebrates the creative spark and clarity that make art...

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...
