Mini-LP sleeve CDs

"First CD compilation of recent seven-inch and twelve-inch records by the enigmatic Wendy Gondeln, mixing electronic music, sawed violin, and Martian intelligence into a thoroughly spicy and utterly confounding goulash. Featured collaborations include Tim Berrescheim, Norbert Möslang, JB Slik, Wolfgang Voigt, and Michael Wertmüller. Projections also includes some of the art installation projects for Albert Oehlen works of recent vintage, such as "Alarm," composed by Wertmüller, well known among other...

"Remastered & fully restored from the BYG master tapes. Lavish illustrated booklet reprints the original lp sleeve, inserts & lyrics."

Being a humongous fan of Gong in high school and discovering them just about the time that Daevid left and they imploded, my sorrow was great. But only a couple of years after they broke up they had the first (of what would be many, many) reunions, but this one was special as it featured the entirety of the 'classic' line up of the band that recorded Angel's Egg and You, which were keystone records of my listening at that time.

This is where the seeds of Gongzilla were sown, as the band features: Bon Loazaga-guitar, Hansford Rowe-bass, François Causse-percussion and Pierre Moerlin on drums, with Mike Oldfield and Didier Malherbe also appearing in guest roles!
“By the late 1970s percussionist Pierre Moerlen had taken over the leadership of Gong and had steered the band away from psychedelic space rock and took the band into a jazz rock direction, one in which the band excelled. After recording several albums with...

"This band with a strange name and an unusual line-up is still less-known to many italian prog experts, yet their only album is surprisingly good and has very interesting moments. The weakest point is the singer's voice, squeaky and monotonous and with...

Great to see this classic/ basic repertoire progressive rock title available again; I believe that this lovely mini-lp sleeve version is the only way it is currently in print!
A British group originally influenced by Renaissance & English trad folk music, they moved from a unique krumhorn/bassoon filled folk/prog blend firmly into the progressive rock camp while still retaining elements of their earlier sound on this one.
I think that Red Queen is probably their greatest work; a unique combination..

"Sometimes plenty can happen in three years; sometimes plenty can happen in a matter of days. When Jan Hammer recorded Maliny Maliny at a club in Munich on August 30, 1968, the keyboardist had no idea that, in three short years he'd be at the...

Staffan Harde, guitar
Lars Sjösten, piano (3, 5, 6)
Lars-Urban Helje, bass (2, 3, 5), percussion (6)
Bengt Berger, drums, percussion (3, 6)

"Based on the tiny Swedish fishing island of Smogen, guitarist Staffan Harde created a wholly unique and wondrous approach to his instrument, documented assiduously on hand-made reel-to-reel tapes and this lone LP from 1972, which features Harde solo and with small groups. His accomplices included pianist Lars Sjösten, bassist Lars-Urban Helje...

Packaged in a beautiful mini-lp sleeve! "It's so cute", all the comrades will squeal! Expanded with bonus tracks taken from the Henry Cow box.

This was Cow's final studio album for Virgin, & is considered by many folks to be their greatest achievement, with Dagmar fully integrated into the band.

Packaged in a beautiful mini-lp sleeve! "It's so cute", all the girls will squeal! Expanded with bonus tracks taken from the Henry Cow box.

Their great first album, this features very strong playing & compositions coupled with a "lightness" of sound unlike any of their other albums; the closest Cow ever got to sounding like Hatfield & The North!

Packaged in a beautiful mini-lp sleeve! "It's so cute", all the girls will squeal! Expanded with bonus tracks taken from the Henry Cow box.

Their 2nd album featured the addition of Lindsay Cooper's bassoon/oboe, giving them sort of a proto-Univers Zero sound (Cow were first). One side of composed music and one side of (mostly) improvised music with studio work. There was a period in my life when this was one of my most listened to albums!

Packaged in a beautiful mini-lp sleeve! Expanded with bonus tracks taken from the Henry Cow box & elsewhere.

The final Henry Cow album, & along with their first, this is my favorite of their many great works. This stuff is the ultimate in humanly impossible to play works, but there they are playing it!

One side of Tim Hodgkinson's composerly insanity (no wonder he gave up composed music for the improvised life! How does one top this?) and one side of Lindsay Cooper's fine works. Fred....

So great to see this little-known but quite excellent 'one and done' Dutch band, who were somewhere between progressive rock and jazz/rock, get a 'deluxe and delightful', tip-on mini-lp sleeve, carefully remastered from the master tapes, first-ever CD...

The latest Hostsonaten release; Hostsonaten is headed by Fabio Zuffanti, who is responsible for so many good, Italian prog releases: La Maschera di Cera, L'Ombra Della Sera, Finisterre, projects under his own name, and Hostsonaten!

I have long prided myself in the bargains we find for our customers. One of my early bosses in the record store biz used to proudly point at the (really good) selection he had of cheapie discs and say, "I have the best 'Record Hell' selection anywhere!"
Well, he DID, but WE DO NOW!
But even with what we've always got, this is a particularly fantastic buy of the latest release by a particularly fantastic band, and you really should pick this up. Period.

"...multi-instrumentalists Toby Driver and Mia Matsumiya lull you into a dream state with a small cavalcade of instrumentation, plying an almost noir sensibility at once moody and contemplative, bristling and demure. An unclassifiable masterpiece."


This 2003 Kenso release was previously available only in Japan and only at a very, very high price; we debated bringing them in, but I just didn't want to have to list them at $40.00, so we passed. Luckily, they've just been issued in Italy by Vinyl Ma...
