"Responsible for two of the strangest, most beguiling acid folk albums of the early 1970s, Jan Dukes de Grey have long been a legendary name on the prog/folk/psych collector circuit. When Cherry Tree reissued Sorcerers and the extraordinary...

An extremely good, previously unknown and unheard high quality live recording from Bert in Glascow in late 1974, from a period that is not considered his best period, release wise, but a period which probably should be re-evaluated based on the recorded evidence here!

"This recording is among the most providential archival discoveries of it's era. If you are a Jansch fan you should rate this as ESSENTIAL for several reasons. For me the most compelling is that it contains perfectly executed...

This is the beginning of their very interesting and influential phase, after their fairly unremarkable earlier recordings.

"Influenced by Roxy Music, David Bowie and Brian Eno, Japan's stylish synth-pop sound made them one of the more intriguing and successful artists of their time. Featuring David Sylvian on vocals, bassist Mick Karn, guitarist Steven Jansen and drummer Richard Barbieri."

Two musicians interested equally - as they put it - in "compact improvisations, bent towards the song form". Ikue has made the much maligned drum machine into an art-form Jauniaux is world-renowned for her vocal talents.

The third album by San Francisco's Jefferson Airplane, and for my money, probably their greatest album and one of the great West Coast psychedelic albums of the 60s.

This is an authorized release in the United Kingdom of a recording of the concert given on May 7, 1969 by Jefferson Airplane at Golden Gate Park in San Francisco. This concert was popularly bootlegged several times and this is the first time it has been officially released. It is a very, very good audience tape for the time period and shows the band at home in front of their hometown crowd and enjoying themselves. Whiles there are repeats from Bless It's Pointed Little Head, this has more later period....

"There is a massive amount of live Airplane material available and it becomes pretty difficult to sort it all out. I am a big fan of the Airplane, and to me this was a "must have"--a more casual listener probably would not feel the same way. The sound quality is excellent overall but not flawless. There are some glitches that were clearly left in because the performances are powerful and worth hearing even with some sonic imperfections.
One thing I like about the Airplane is the way they combined...

"Marty Balin, Paul Kantner, Jorma Kaukonen (vocals, guitar); Grace Slick (vocals); Jack Casady (bass) Spencer Dryden (drums). Additional personnel: Gary Blackman, Charles Cockey (vocals, guitar); David Crosby (guitar); Tim Davis (congas); Bill Goodwin...

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...

"Jefferson Airplane were less focused in 1969 than they had been in the Summer of Love two years before. Recorded at the Fillmore East, these performances find the Airplane coming off their most recent album, Volunteers, released a month earlier, with the band a lot looser (drug use aside) and fractured. The factions in the group were presenting themselves during performances, and this set is no exception. Guitarist Jorma Kaukonen and bassist Jack Casady connected and jammed like they would have been....

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...

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...

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...

"There's a mystical place out there in the stars most people can't even dream of these days, but way back when, Jon and Vangelis had a real knack for taking us there. From my first listening when this first came out on LP, I distinctly recall saying to myself,"That's it! That's the music of some distant world I've visited before in my dreams but couldn't put my finger on"."-W. Craig

Bassist Percy Jones came to everyone's attention via his amazing, totally distinctive work with both Brand X and his appearances on Brian Eno's albums.
One of the great, distinctive bassists of our time, Percy continues to work, but has never gotten the attention I think he has always deserved.
This reissues his second release under his name, which has been out of print for at least 20 years, and it is a unique and mostly (there are a couple of out of place, duff vocal tracks) very enjoyable....

“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...

"It even looks like something classic, beyond its time or place of origin even as it was a clear product of both -- one of Peter Saville's earliest and best designs, a transcription of a signal showing a star going nova, on a black embossed sleeve...

As I think I've mentioned before, I started my career in music retail in a store that sold a lot of metal, which wasn't something I was really familiar with or - honestly - particularly crazy about. This album, however, knocked my socks off from the...

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.

Henry Kaiser is one of the great improvising guitarists. His music has grown and changed over the 4 decades he's been making music, but whose work has always had big roots in the 60s psychedelic rock of his home in the San Francisco area.
Bob Bralove is a keyboardist who was the keyboardist for the Grateful Dead during their final 8 years of existence. So, obviously, they have a lot to musically say to each other here.
Henry told me that they worked with live improvising of guitar and piano...

"This is the sole album by one of the legendary groups of the Mexican rock scene, considered by many to be the best psychedelic record of the late 1960’s to come from anywhere in all of Latin America. The original album, was released by the Orfeon label in an edition of only 200 copies, hardly a recipe for great fame. What is clear to all who have heard it is that this is certainly a monster psych classic (c.1968/69), a great album (all songs in English) with heavy grooves, super fuzzified funky acid...

"Kaleidoscope were arguably the most eclectic band of the psychedelic era, weaving together folk, blues, Middle Eastern, and acid more often and seamlessly than any other musicians. The California group were formed under the nucleus of multi-instrumentalists David Lindley and Chris Darrow in the mid-'60s. Adding fiddle, banjo, and various exotic string instruments such as the oud and saz to the traditional rock lineup, Kaleidoscope complemented their experimental sounds with taut and witty (if lyrically...

Kampec Dolores are a Hungarian avant-rock band with lots of eastern European folk influences as well as more straight-forward rock bits and improvisational influences. The most immediately striking thing about the band are the pretty terrific vocals by Gabi Kenderesi. She, along with guitarist Csaba Hajnoczy, are the main forces within the group, but there are also strong contributions from Árpád Vajdouich-bass, Hu Grencsó-wind instruments and Tamás Ölueczky-drums....

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 &...

"For any art rock band, the fourth album means it's time for a self-styled masterpiece -- if you need proof, look at Selling England by the Pound or Fragile.
So, with Kansas, the most determinedly arty of all American art rock bands, they composed and recorded Leftoverture, an impenetrable conundrum of significance that's capped off by nothing less than a five-part suite, appropriately titled "Magnum Opus," and featuring such promising movement titles as "Father Padilla Meets the Perfect Gnat" and...

"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...

"This is a two-fer reissue of early '70s Japanese underground rock albums Love Suki Daikirai and Kirikyogen, featuring Kuni Kawachi & Flower Travelling Band. Recorded in 1970, the tone of Kirikyogen is cast in a shadow, and it seeps through the pores...

"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...

Kerygmatic Project was born in 1998, created by Samuele Tadini, Danilo Nobili and Marco Campagnolo, with the purpose of composing original music that recover in style and construction the great British progressive rock tradition of the seventies and eighties, renewed tradition with a new key able to embrace different styles, so as to constitute an original sound well recognizable. The Kerygmatic Project compositions are affected, in fact, from the contributions of various genres taken by rock, pop, jazz...

“Excellent 1976 private press acoustic album, self-recorded at various places in Colorado, and filled with beautiful finger style acoustic guitar, plus some atonal bottleneck slide, string scrapes and drones (at times, very Ry Cooder / “Paris, Texas” about six years before that soundtrack existed). Although almost completely instrumental, what lyrics there are tend towards the dark and the satiric. The obvious points of comparison are John Fahey and Leo Kottke, although Scott Key certainly has his own...

"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...
