"One of the lesser known Guru Guru albums originally released in `93 and re-issued in `07 on revisited records with remastering by none other than ex-Grobschnitt drummer EROC.
Well you can`t go wrong with the technical improvements as well as the one thing which is guaranteed with every Guru Guru album from Mani Nuemeier & Co: A wacked out musical experience with diversity and relentless energy. Divided roughly between vocal tracks and instrumentals, " Shake Well " contains a heavy dose of high...

"Our authorised reissue of early Wigwam leader Gustavson’s 2nd solo work from 1979 (originally on Kerberos Records) comes with a facsimile of the original printed insert plus new liner notes by Mikael Wiik and also a fresh interview with Gustavson himself.
As Jukka’s work with Wigwam attests, his music was always complex and demanding – but, it more often than not incorporated a totally infectious groove. On his second album Valon vuoksi (-79) he moved even further away from his earlier influences...

Bruce Haack, born on May 4, 1931, was one of the most musically and lyrically inventive children's songwriters of the '60s and '70s. Despite -- or perhaps because of -- his intended audience, his music was unusually expressive, combining homemade analog synths; classical, country, pop, and rock elements; and surreal, idealistic lyrics. Haack's innovations and desire to teach still sound fresh, making his music a favorite with fans of analog synths and esoteric recordings.
...Though he had little...

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...

"Steve Hackett's reputation was founded on his outstanding guitar playing with Genesis covering much of the 70's and encompassing Nursery Cryme through to Seconds Out. Having left the band in 1977, Steve build on the success of his earlier solo outing Voyage Of The Acolyte with a series of critically acclaimed albums that spawned a large worldwide following. Here we present Steve in concert in Nottingham, UK, filmed in 1990 performing a selection of his best known solo work."

"This is a great show...

2005 remaster with bonus tracks and new liner notes.

"Remastered this year at Steve Hackett's MAP studios by engineer Benedict Fenner, in direct collaboration with Steve. Spectral’s bonus material includes fascinating alternate studio versions of Every Day, Virgin and the Gypsy, Tigermoth and The Ballad of the Decomposing Man (featuring The Office Party). Also the 12” single version of Clocks released in Se

"Susanne Lewis and Bob Drake met in 1980 at a Denver recording studio where Bob was working as an engineer. They immediately discovered a musical kinship and have continued to play and record in various projects since, notably Hail, but also Denver legends Thinking Plague and 5UUs.
Their first LP (Venus Handcuffs, 1986) was recorded in an abandoned yoghurt factory, the second (Gypsy cat and Gypsy Bird, 1983) followed soon after. At about this time Bob got a job as a sound-effects engineer for a horror

Songs by Suzanne Lewis and Bob Drake, both ex-Thinking Plague - a punky cross between Syd Barrett's Pink Floyd and early Jefferson Airplane. This time, Bob Drake and Susanne Lewis are joined by some guests: Dave Kerman, Chris Cutler, Bill Gilonis.

"Since the release of their first album, the band has lost his vocalist Jocelyn Beaulieu who has a special voice in the range of Jon Anderson of Yes. Since then the sound and the music of the band change for a more in your face kind of rock, heavier, less retro-prog and more modern. I was a bit disappointed with the next two releases, it felt to me that the band has lost his sense for good melodies. It's clear that the voice of Jean-Francois Desilets doesn't have the same strenght of Jocelyn, but his...

Caveat: READ THIS: If you google this title, you will see lots and lots of people talking about what a botch job it is, including someone who bought it from us for $6.00, didn't check it for 2 years and then wanted their money back (I said 'no').

I don't know if they fixed it or the reported problems are wrong, but the DVD played fine in my computer and the entire concert was there on the 2 CDs as well (although seemingly in the wrong order). AT THIS PRICE, HOWEVER, WE WON'T TAKE RETURNS...

Hammill's 6th album and I believe the first one released after the final dissolution of Van der Graaf. It is the closest thing to a 'concept' album I can think of by Peter, charting the decline and final dissolution (of course it is a sad story! it's a Peter Hammill album!) of a love affair.
When I was becoming a Hammill fanatic, this one was impossible to find; the only place it was in print (this is lp days, of course) was Israel, and with a lot of difficulty, I did finally procure myself a copy!...

While they last, this is a full 50% off the regular price!

Hammill's third solo album was recorded not too long after Van Der Graaf Generator imploded and released in early 1974. Like the excellent previous album Chameleon In the Shadow Of The Night, it's an excellent work that blends a very intense singer/songwriter esthetic with more avant/progressive tendencies ala VDGG. Has performances by all of VDGG here and there and even guitarist Randy California on one track. The final track, A Louse Is...

20 bit digitally remixed and remastered version with unpublished photos and new liner notes, of Herbie's wonderful, classic fusion album with Bennie Maupin, Eddie Henderson, Julian Priester, Buster Williams, Billy Hart, Patrick Gleeson and Buck Clarke...

"The follow-up to the breakthrough Headhunters album was virtually as good as its wildly successful predecessor: an earthy, funky, yet often harmonically and rhythmically sophisticated tour de force. There is only one change in the Headhunters lineup -- swapping drummer Harvey Mason for Mike Clark -- and the switch results in grooves that are even more complex. Hancock continues to reach into the rapidly changing high-tech world for new sounds, most notably the metallic sheen of the then-new ARP string...

"A remastered edition of the classic Psychedelic album “Western Flier” by HAPSHASH and the COLOURED COAT, Psychedelic graphic designers and darlings of London’s Underground scene Michael English and Nigel Waymouth. Being responsible for a series of legendary posters for artists such as the Jimi Hendrix Experience, Cream, The Crazy World of Arthur Brown, Traffic, Tomorrow, Soft Machine, Pink Floyd, The Who et al, Waymouth and English ventured into music after being persuaded to do so by friend, DJ and ...

"The man gets older, and the music just stays very good, or might even be a bit better. 7 really wellwritten songs, which all have a stamp of singer/songwriter to it, but also rather strongly folk inspired. It also flirts a bit with rock and has some very progressive moments to it. The lyrics are wellwritten, and the music including vocals are just so killingly chilled.
I got this album late in November 2013 and the first few listens didn’t blow me away to any great extent. It was good, it....

"Recorded during Steeleye Span Mark II's early days, this album -- the most advanced of the three that they recorded together early in their careers -- has a very different feel from the Steeleye work of the era. Hart (vocals, guitar, dulcimer, harmonium, psaltery, tabor) and Prior (vocals) are working with Sweeney's Men (whence Steeleye Mark I's Terry Woods came) alumnus Andy Irvine and Steeleye Mark I guest drummer Gerry Conway. The sound is mostly fairly spare, just Hart and Prior backed by Irvine on...

"Ad Hoc Records' new, four-panel digipack reissue of The Hat Shoes debut album will be especially welcomed by lovers of intelligent and thoughtful progressive music, with a hint of Romanticism.
Originally released in 1991, Differently Desperate is a studio offering of diverse avant-pop songs by a 'super-group' comprised of members Bill Gilonis (The Work), Catherine Jauniaux (Fluvial), Charles Hayward (This Heat, Camberwell Now) and Tom Cora (Skeleton Crew, Curlew). There's also a slew of well-known...

For those of you interested in European and especially Brit-jazz, Tubby Hayes and Ronnie Scott (who also appears here) are basically 'ground zero' in terms of a original, British jazz sound.

Charles Hayward is, of course, best known for his drumming and vocalizing feats with This Heat, Camberwell Now and Quiet Sun, but in addition to doing some improvising work, he has released a number of solo albums contsructed out of his excellent drumming, distinctive voice and single drones made from keyboards, melodica, etc. I saw him perform at RIO in 2009 and it was a real treat to finally see the great man behind the kit and in full voice. This is his first in quite some time and is a good one...

"This is the finest album from Michael Hedges, the man who is responsible for the greatest revolution in solo acoustic guitar playing since Leo Kottke. There are moments on Aerial Boundaries where it seems literally impossible that so much music is...

This is some of the fabulous recordings that the Jimi Hendrix Experience made for the BBC as they were starting out and then as they were getting huge.
Excellent mono sound from the original masters and great, happy, performances by the entire band. Some of the material is very unexpected and never recorded anywhere else and there's a lot of the well known pieces as well.
If I had to choose only one posthumous collection of studio recordings by Jimi, this is the one. Utterly essential.

"After only being available in heavily edited or bootleg form, Jimi Hendrix's complete performance at the Isle of Wight Festival (1970) was finally officially released some 32 years after the fact. Although Hendrix is plagued by equipment problems and audience expectations, and the entire festival had degenerated into something of a debacle by the time Jimi hit the stage as headliner, the sound is fantastic, the packaging and booklet are filled with great photos, and it is the entire performance...

Note that this has a neat but significant cut in the digipack. Also note that this is 20 great Hendrix tracks - his best, really - for $3.00. Seems hard to believe that there might be folks who don't have any Jimi, but if you don't, you absolutely need this. Do you have a niece or nephew who thinks Slash is the greatest guitarist of all time? Here's the $3.00 remedy. This has his major singles (yes, imagine an artist as revolutionary as Jimi having hit singles these days!) with a stack of majestic album...

This is a nice documentary with some great footage included, but what you and I are really getting this for (at least *I* am) is the really high quality, never-before seen performances from Miami Pop Fest ('68) and New York Pop Fest ('70)....

Now this is one of the great, oft-bootlegged Jimi shows. I remember getting a cassette copy of this from a friend 20 years ago with the words "THE SHOW" excitedly scribbled on the top of the tape! And he was correct. This is one of the finer shows of late period Jimi, doing songs from his upcoming "New Rising Sun" album, which, of course, he never lived to quite finish. Not sure why Experience Hendrix only released the second show of this date (although it is the best of the two shows), but this is a....

Wired on adrenalin and other stuff too, this is the Experience at an early peak, playing before the largest audience they had ever played for and determined to live up to the pre-show hype and break big in the US. They did. It's an amazing performance and the sound as remixed from the original multi-tracks is really state of the art live & loud 1967, with Mitch's fabulous drumming very audible.

"After Electric Ladyland, this is probably the Hendrix CD that I enjoy the most (I am only missing a few scattered studio releases). While it doesn't hold together as an album, being a compilation, it contains a lot of really incredible songs. The production throughout is fantastic, punchy and clear. Many of these tunes were unfinished studio projects post-Electric Ladyland, and as such a lot of them are very dense and complicated productions. Plentiful guitar overdubs abound, and some of Jimi's most...

The last of the Henry Cow albums on Virgin, this includes their amazing final BBC session; 25' of Henry Cow perfection, a small taste of the famous shows that they performed with Robert Wyatt and a lot of purely free improvisation or prepared free improvisation, which is what they were doing live at this time.
This has been out of print for a bit now and is always in demand, and it has been remastered by Bob Drake and sounds significantly better to my ears!

"Originally released in 197

This is high quality live Swedish radio recordings from Goteborg (1975 - with John Greaves) and Stockholm (1977 - with Georgie Born). The sound is great here; Bob Drake worked from the original 8 track and stereo 2 track masters and you can finally hear Tim's follow-up masterpiece to "Living in the Heart of the Beast", entitled "Erk Gah". There's also some nice improvisations and other tunes and Fred's never otherwise released "The March", which is a really great one as well. Highly recommended...

"Timely reissue of this late '60s folk/psych classic from husband and wife team Jerry Yester and Judy Henske. Yester had previously enjoyed an element of fame courtesy of his stint with The Loving Spoonful, but following the band's demise in 1969,...

"The band were co-led by Dominique Weeks and Cass Davies, two of the prime movers in London's underground music scene during the 80's, here joined by Catherine Jauniaux and Tim Hodgkinson. Though many fans have likened them to a melding of Harry Partch with The Residents, Het performed music which defies categorizing, other than to say that it was a unique and intense product of its time and place: Complex, highly percussive, primal, densely orchestrated, angst-ridden, artful,meticulously constructed and...

"This 2003 package spotlights Dan Hicks (guitar/vocals) and his handpicked assemblage at a one-time-only gig at the Warfield Theatre in San Francisco on December 9, 2001, honoring Hicks' 60th birthday. In his trademark approach, the pacing is decidedly low-key, even as different aggregates of musicians come and go between practically every number. This gives each delivery a unique texture and allows for some inspired interaction. Early classics include the jug band-infused Charlatans side "How Can I Miss...

The last of Hillage's albums to strictly feature his progressive rock/post Gong sound. This includes the studio tracks that were left off of the new version of Live Herald, as well as two additonal tracks.

In the 80s and 90s, in DC, one of the great nights out you could see once every 10 months or so, was singer / songwriter / guitarist / bandleader Robyn Hitchcock with whatever group of musicians he was fronting at that time.

"Not all great composers are dead. Some of them even appear in public as rock musicians. Tim Hodgkinson is such a composer."-Michael Bloom/Boston Rock.

An intense fusion of contemporary classical music & rock energy. It is a unique form of electronic-but-acoustic music which has the excitement & spontaneity of improvisation, tempered by the rigor of structured composition.

Hogarth is best known as the frontman of Marillion, the Progressive Rock legends that he joined in 1989, following spells in The Europeans and How We Live. In recent years Richard Barbieri has been a core member of Porcupine Tree playing keyboards on all the band's albums since 1993 as well as releasing two solo albums.

There are millions of Billie Holliday comps out there, but this one is priced RIGHT and every one of them features Lester Young. So it is a great place to start.

"A Musical Romance gathers some of the most romantic songs Billie Holiday recorded with Lester Young, including "The Man I Love," "Time on My Hands (You in My Arms)," "I Must Have That Man," and "Who Wants Love?" Essentially a collection of some of the love songs featured on the excellent Lady Day: The Complete Billie Holiday on...

If you like this sound, this is every bit as great as you would hope it would be!

"Dave Holland is best known as one of the great jazz bassists of his generation. Pepe Habichuela is an awe-inspiring flamenco guitarist. The two of them together, with Josemi and Carlos Carmona on additional guitars as well as a pair of percussionists, prove to be a wonderful combination.
Holland brings his own experience to flamenco, subsuming himself in the genre, his bass imitating a voice on the glorious...

"Winding through the literally hundreds of titles in John Lee Hooker's catalog is a daunting task for even the most seasoned and learned blues connoisseur. This is especially true when considering Hooker recorded under more than a dozen aliases for as many labels during the late '40s, '50s, and early '60s. I'm John Lee Hooker was first issued in 1959 during his tenure with Vee Jay and is "the Hook" in his element as well as prime. Although many of these titles were initially cut for Los Angeles-based...

"When 'businessman' Bernie Besman persuaded a stammering, illiterate ex-cinema usher to cut a record in 1948, he kick started the 50 year career of America's most successful real-deal bluesman. That first record would sell a million after Besman sneaked his name in as co-author and leased the masters to the Modern label. Possibly that may have inspired Hooker's lifelong policy of recording for anybody and everybody ready to pay him off upfront, but it leaves collectors confronting a minefield of...

Wonderful compilation of this excellent Texas bluesman's best work. Lightnin' normally performed solo and due to this, he has a sound not too dissimilar to the other great solo electric bluesman, John Lee Hooker. One of the greats, imo...

This is subtitled "Songs by Hugh Hopper" and that's just what it is, as it collects tunes from the Voiceprint catalog of his songs and even includes a otherwise unavailable version of "Was a Friend" with Robert Wyatt singing!...

Truly a Canterbury supergroup. Some familiar and some new tunes. Is this a major, profound, Canterbury REVELATION? No, but these old friends are having fun and playing well on this professionally recorded early 90s live recording.
