Mega Blowout Sale

One of the most essential and quintessential West Coast (meaning San Francisco) psych bands of the 60s, this is an excellent quality early/prime period release. The sound is quite excellent for what these are and the age that these are - a bit hissy...

An excellent live album, released only in the USA, which was recorded on May 3 & 4, 1968, when the band were in their absolute prime after releasing my favorite by them, After Bathing at Baxter's, and highlighting material from their upcoming, also...

The first release includes a different lineup than the 'famous' version of the band. It is still a very good, early psychedelic release.

"Marty Balin, Signe Toly Anderson (vocals); Paul Kantner (guitar, vocals); Jorma Ludwik Kaukonen (guitar)...

While there were other albums released under the Jefferson Airplane name, this is really the final album by the classic band. The five bonus tracks are fantastic, recorded live in November, 1969 at the Filmore East!

"This is Jefferson Airplane at its peak, political and trippy, at the end of the Sixties. Before their legendary squabbles would, finally, make them implode, they managed one last great album, and here it is. Each of them seem to have hit their stride, Kantner's writing...

Higly recommended! Killer, monster price on this wonderful set! I just love early Tull, so it's a real thrill for me personally to be able to listen to this professional recording of their concert in front of 600,000 people at the Isle of Wight 8/30/70...

Blind Willie Johnson's rightly famous instrumental (with wordless vocal accompaniment "Dark Was The Night" is considered one of the great pre-war blues guitar performances, because it genuinely is. There is very little music that is emotionally deeper...

“This live concert, broadcast over Swiss, features the Thad Jones/Mel Lewis Orchestra at its prime. The remarkable all-star group includes two first trumpeters (Snooky Young and Al Porcino) and such soloists as trumpeters Richard Williams, Danny Moore and Thad Jones, trombonist Jimmy Knepper, Jerome Richardson on soprano, Jerry Dodgion on flute and alto, baritonist Pepper Adams, pianist Roland Hanna, bassist Richard Davis and tenor great Joe Henderson whose short stint with the band was long enough to...

First widely available and legit reissue of the material by this early 70s progressive rock band from the UK. They have since had a complete reissue of everything done, but you can sample what they do for a very low price here! Now basically forgotten...

"About half of this two-record set (now on 1 CD) features Janis Joplin with Big Brother & the Holding Company in 1968, performing songs like "Down on Me" and "Piece of My Heart." The rest, recorded in 1970, finds her with her backup group, Full Tilt Boogie, mostly performing songs from I Got Dem Ol' Kozmic Blues Again Mama! Joplin puts herself out on-stage, both in terms of singing until her voice is raw and describing her life to her audiences. Parts of this album are moving, parts are heartbreaking...

Great, archival, professionally recorded set of Janis along with her original band, a star-crossed, pivotal San Francisco psychedelic band, who were quite cool in a truly psychedelic, 1967/68 way, and who had the fortune of a star-singer as a integrated member of the band, and the GREAT mis-fortune to be in the way when the powers that be decided that she was the star and that 'those hippies' were holding her back. They weren't holding her back; they were her most sympathetic accompanists and here is a...

Don't think I can't hear you saying, "Jesus Christ, he's fucking selling JOURNEY", because I can!

Listen, if you don't know this album, you really don't know what you are missing. This is the 1st album by Journey and it features Gregg Rolle...

"Wonderful new reunion album from Hans Lundin and Roine Stolt that recaptures the flavor of their first 3 albums from the mid-70s. If you first instinct is to ask yourself what the difference is between this release and a Flower Kings disc you should know that all the material was written by Hans Lundin. Roine is the guitarist but it's pretty much Lundin's show here. Drums are handled by Morgan Agren (ex-Zappa) and Jonas Reingold of Flower Kings plays all basses. This is pure Kaipa in execution - loads...

"According to composer, arranger, and multi-instrumentalist Eyvind Kang, the idea for Narrow Garden had haunted him since the middle of the 1990s. This wide-ranging musical statement on the various notions of love (and in particular, courtly love]...

The first album by Kansas, originally released in 1974. Their unique blend of pure, complex progressive rock and American-style hard rock/bar rock was very identifiable as theirs in 1974, and it still is. This is newly remastered with new liner notes &...

"The third album by Kansas, was originally released in 1975, along with their second, Song For America. This is one of their most progressive rock albums and also features pretty dark lyrical content. Their unique blend of pure, complex progressive....

This was the band's last 70s album and contains the classic line-up of the group, not for the last time, but one of the last times.


The second album by Kansas, originally released in 1975. This is probably their most 'progressive rock album', with the long Incomudro (also found on the Proto-Kaw album) one of the highlights. Their unique blend of pure, complex progressive rock and A...

"This King Biscuit Flower Hour recording of their Valentine’s Day show in 1989 at the legendary Tower Theater in Upper Darby PA charts their prestigious career and marks their return as a driving force in American rock music. As their third live recording, it is a proud companion to Two for the Show from 1978 and 1992’s Live at the Whiskey affirming the second of three chapters that make up the history of Kansas (so far).
“Pennsylvania discovered Kansas long before any other state in the Union,”...

"Paul Kantner's debut solo album actually was credited to "Paul Kantner/Jefferson Starship," the first use of the "Starship" billing, predating the formation of the group with that name by four years. Kantner used it, extrapolating on the name of his...

"As lead guitarist for late '60s US psychedelic visionaries Spirit, Randy California needs no introduction to serious rock fans. This tremendous live set was recorded for the LA radio station KPFK in September 1972 -- the same month his wild solo debut, Kapt. Kopter and The (Fabulous) Twirly Birds, appeared -- and also features Larry "Fuzzy" Knight on bass and Spirit's legendary Ed Cassidy on drums. It captures them in blistering form on several cuts from that album, and features rare and wild....

Karuna Khyal's album Alomoni 1985, originally released on Voice Records around 1976, is widely acknowledged as years ahead of its time, preceding other Japanese underground experimental outfits such as Fushitsusha and White Heaven by almost 20 years...

"Quah -- Jorma Kaukonen's (guitar/vocal) solo debut effort -- was recorded and issued shortly after the dissolution of Jefferson Airplane in 1974. In contrast to the sonic indulgences of Grace Slick's Manhole or Paul Kantner and Jefferson Starship's Blows Against the Empire, Kaukonen retreated back to his folk-blues roots along with vocalist Tom Hobson -- who contributes to "Blue Prelude" and "Sweet Hawaiian Sunshine" -- to create this intricate acoustic masterwork. From the highly original artwork...

"Recorded and released after a two-year stint in Europe, Until marks alto saxophonist Robin Kenyatta's American debut as a leader, after sideman tenures with Sonny Stitt, Bill Dixon, and Archie Shepp. For anyone (of the few) who followed the rather obscure reedman's career, this set -- originally released on the Atlantic jazz subsidiary Vortex and produced by Joel Dorn -- is indicative of the restless nature of Kenyatta's career on his own records: he was not only interested in, but attempted to play...

These are perfect versions of the now out of print hardbound version of this great history of the great Impulse label. Due to the size and weight, these will ship to you via media mail separately from the rest of your order. If you live outside of the...

One of the greatest and most distinctive sounds in 'world music', this is four long tracks recorded live at the Royal Albert Hall, London, on June 28, 1994.

"The late Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan is universally recognised as one of the great voices...

"Ali Akbar Khan was one of the greatest musicians of the Indian subcontinent. A man completely absorbed in the music of the classical tradition that he inherited, and that he helped popularise in the west. In 1955, after years of training and performing in India, he made his first trip to the west at the invitation of the famous violinist Yehudi Menuhin. Khan arrived in New York City and performed in a festival of Indian culture at the Museum of Modern Art, that featured the dancer Shanta Rao and the...

Ustad Vilayat Khan was one of the most important figures of the twentieth century in north Indian classical music. He was, as Ravi Shankar put it, along with himself and Ali Akbar Khan, one of the original Three Musketeers, of Indian musicians who had conquered the west. Vilayat Khan's was a personality shaped by the conviction that it was destined to leave its mark on the world. He would not have been happy with just being the greatest sitarist; he had to be amongst the all-time greats of Hindustani...

"Heralded as one of the greatest live blues albums ever recorded, this set catches the singer-guitarist as his star was in ascent: in 1964 playing Chicago's answer to Harlem's Apollo Theater--the Regal. King's performance is visceral. He sings so hard that gravel flies even in his clearest high notes. And his trademark single-note guitar lines are sharp and steely, matching his voice with trembling vigor. He offers early hits like "How Blue Can You Get," "Worry, Worry," and "You Upset Me Baby" to what's...

"In the early 1970s, B.B. King was basking in the glow of crossover success, with his brand of soulful blues reaching all audiences, not just African-American ones. In this 75-minute radio broadcast from October 1, 1972, his stinging guitar runs through a mix of old and new classics, from his mid-'50s R&B hit "Everyday I Have the Blues" to Leon Russell's "Hummingbird." Other highlights include the standard "Rock Me Baby" and his biggest hit, "The Thrill Is Gone." It's presented here in its entirety, with...

Guitarist Kaki King started as a 'tapping guitarist', ala Michael Hedges, Preston Reed and (early) Richard Leo Johnson. She somehow got herself signed to SONY for a very short while, appearing on The Late Show and the like, although she was quickly...

"Kingfisher Sky is a new Dutch ensemble put together by former Within Temptation drummer Ivar De Graaf along with classically trained vocalist Judith Rijnveld. Ivar left Within Temptation to pursue other musical interests. His collaboration with Judith...

“Stunning second album from this eclectic Dutch progressive band. Kingfisher Sky is masterminded by the husband and wife team of Ivar de Graaf (drums) and Judith Rijnveld (vocals). The band's lineup has changed a bit since Hallway Of Dreams but the...

Long time Waysiders will remember us carrying (and selling!) a lot of these back when it was originally released on lp-only in 1986. It was a really good one then and it's still a really good one now.

Synthesist Bernd Kistenmacher seemingly came out of nowhere in 1986 with this album of Berlin- style electronic music that was basically the best thing that Klaus Schulze never made.

"It was Klaus Schulze's 1976 album Moondawn that altered the trajectory of Bernd Kistenmacher's life when he.

This is 10 remastered CDs in an opulent package at a stupid price ($1.80 per disc)!

Paul is St. Elmo's Fire's guitarist. This is the 1st ever issue of his Frippertronics style opening set that Paul would use to open Elmo's gigs, using analog synths, electric guitars, effects & more. Charming.

Released on Proper, a great UK label who do an amazing job in terms of packaging, presentation and especially in terms of sonics. This is important, basic repertoire material. A great place to hear some of his best stuff and at a amazing price...

While they last, this is a full $10.00 off the usual price!

Long awaited - at least by me - second studio album by this terrific African band from Congo, who blend traditional Bazombo trance music with heavy amplification. The band features....

"All I can say is that sometimes when you have anticipated something for a long time you can become afraid that it can't possibly live up to your built up expectations. No fear this time. The lost album is indescribable. What a treasure to hear Kooper and Bloomfield together again! After wearing out copies of Super Session and Super Session live on Vinyl, 8 track, cassette, and CD, to actually hear this new material was like the closest thing to time travel that I expect to ever get...

Influential and legendary German Krautrock/Jazzrock band formed around Hellmut Hattler, Jan Wolbrandt, Jan Friede and Johannes Pappert in 1967. Originally playing a hybrid of free jazz (influenced by the likes of Pharaoh Sanders and Frank Zappa) the members lived communally and worked on tightening up their sound, as well as other art projects, for close to five years before recording and releasing their jazz/psychedelic debut album under the name Kraan (meaning ‘faucet’ in Dutch). The balance of the 70s...

Performers include: Steve Lacy, Peter Herbert, Wolfgang Reisinger, Marcus Weiss, Philippe Racine, Paulo Alvares, Bernhard Lang, Christof Kurzmann, Philip Jeck.

"This look at the tensed balance between composition, improvisation, and performance..

All previously unreleased duets recorded between 1982-94, & featuring the soprano sax master with Derek Bailey, Bobby Few, George Lewis, Steve Potts, Roswell Rudd, Masahiko Togashi, Mal Waldron & others.

"Lambert Hendricks & Ross are still regarded as the finest jazz vocal group of all time: Their fame comes from their pioneering of vocalese; wordless vocals imitating instruments and they achieved this in an astonishing style that has never been surpassed. The EL edition is full of rarities, restored and reissued on compact disc for the first time including numerous superb pre-LHR recordings involving Dave Lambert Singers and Annie Ross and three LHR live tracks from a 1958 radio broadcast; including a...

"The New Yorker critic Whitney Balliett once said her tiny wisp of a voice "would scarcely reach the second storey of a doll's house", while jazz critic Leonard Feather described it as "a voice in a million". Blossom Dearie pursued a singular career...

A major label modern blues recording by the best living slide guitarist (with a absolutely gorgeous tone) that *I* know of.

He's really a live performer more than a studio performer, but this is probably his best studio album or darn close.

Jerome was a founding member of the very fine Quebecois band Maneige, writing and performing on their 1st two albums, which were some of the band's highlights. For the last 30 years, he's been doing soundtrack-type work, and it reflects that, but it al...

2005 release by this talented musician and producer.
"If you had ever wished that Lanois would abandon lyrics and vocals and paint an album with melodies and textures, Brian Eno style, then 'Belladonna' will have you in raptures. It's a complex...

"The twelve part BBC Series, Lark Rise to Candleford, on prime time Sunday nights has attracted nearly 12 million viewers each week. The album includes several pieces of music from the programme, including the theme music. The main man behind the...

One of the very first (maybe *the* first) CD release on the late, great AYAA label was by this mostly instrumental Swiss trio of tenor sax, bass and drums. 20 years later, here they are again, now with a guitarist and a couple of guests on a few songs...

Pretty swinging jazz/free jazz quintet date from the late, great CMP label, so you know it is well recorded! This features Lauer on tenor and soprano saxes, Puschnig on alto saxes, Bob Stewart on tuba and Thomas Alkier on drums. Bob holds down the low ...
