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 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...

"Terumasa Hino is the legendary Japanese trumpeter who has given us countless amazing sessions since the late 60s. His work in the 70s channeled the spirit of electric Miles Davis. This live album from 1973 isn’t plugged in but its searing with white...

Fabio Zuffanti is one of the most creative and also most busy of the younger Italian musicians who is creating new music with a foot in 'classic style progressive rock'. I thought that this was really astonishingly good; for whatever reason, it doesn't...

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!

Mini-lp sleeve reissue of the first album, from 1974, of this hard rock influenced Italian off-shoot of New Trolls.

"The Japanese jazz scene is finally getting the attention it deserves. Long written off as just a scene filled with copycats of American and European artists, jazz fans around the world are now discovering that there was some amazing music being...

This is a rare as hell, Japanese-only release, originally released in 1975 on the audiophile Three Blind Mice label.

This features piano and electric keyboards, guitar (by Kazumi Watanabe), bass, drums, and percussion. There are four tracks...

This Swiss band only released this one, very collectable lp in 1977. At that time they were a quartet of vocals, keyboards, sax & drums.This has a lot of long tracks & instrumental passages, & is generally dark & gloomy progressive. Maybe a little...

The 3rd & final album by this UK fusion outfit, led by guitarist Gary Boyle. This also features Zoe Kronberger & Frank Roberts- keyboards, Dan Brown-bass & Nigel Morris-drums. Hugh Hopper was no longer in the band, but one of his leftover tunes & perfo...

Mini-lp sleeve reissue of the second album by this Italian progressive band. "DNA (1972) revealed that their sound had matured surprisingly quickly, moving in a totally idiosyncratic direction. Actually, it's difficult to pigeonhole this music...it com...

Mini-lp sleeve reissue of the third and final album (in their original lifetime) by this Italian progressive band. "Without doubt, Vietato Ai Minori Di 18 Anni (1973) was Jumbo's masterpiece. With guests such as Franco Battiato and Lino Vaccina (from...

"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...

"...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...


Third & final of the original three Lard Free albums. Lard Free, led by Gilbert Artman, were a legendary, early progressive/avant/electronic instrumental group. Along with Heldon this is as close as the French came to "krautrock". This is probably my personal favorite of all of them, & I like all of them a lot! A classic!

"Chaotic heavy sound like as early German Rock. The original LP was released on Cobra in 1977. Featuring: Gilbert Artman (orgue, piano, arp synthetiseur, vibraphone, drums...

Classic, great, early and wild experimental avant/progressive rock band, led by drummer/composer Gilbert Artman, before he formed Urban Sax.

"The first solo album in 1973. Avant-Garde electric Jazz Rock!! The original LP was released on Vamp Records in 1973. Featuring: Gilbert Artman (drums, piano steinway, vibes), Herve Eyhani (bass guitar, arp synthetizer), Philippe Bolliet (all saxes), Francois Mativet (guitars) Reissue with elaborate miniature paper sleeve of the original LP (Full color...

Mini-lp sleeve release of this, the 2nd, and probably the best release of this group's E.L.P. - inspired albums that this very young Italian band released. A very nice fusion of keyboard-driven progressive rock and classical music.

Daniel Levin, cello / Matt Moran, vibes / Nate Wooley, trumpet / Peter Bitenc, bass

"The Daniel Levin Quartet has already shown on prior recordings that a change of conventional instrumentation in a jazz combo is enough to explore an entirely...

This is a limited edition, mini-lp reissue of a quite rare Italian progressive rock album that has never been generally available on CD before. Libra first came to attention opening up for Banco during their 1975 Italian tour, and this 1975 album was ...

First-ever reissue on CD, this is the band's second and best album and it include 3 bonus tracks as well!

"This band from Bergamo was formed around 1970, and had a long life that lasted until 1978. Their name means dawn in Spanish. The group derived from some 60's beat bands like I Condor, that included bass player Alessandro Zanelli and keyboardist Franco Orlandini (from Mat 65 and who later worked with Equipe 84 and Claudio Rocchi), and later changed name to Le Lunghe Storie, and along them...

Malibran were one of the most important & most visible of Italy's reviving Rock Progressivo Italiano scene in the 90s and into the early 00s.

It's hard to tell from the promo blurb if this set of rare tracks, which includes some very interesting covers, is the swan song release from them, or if they are still at it. It's been quite a long time since their last one, so my guess is that this is goodbye.

Either way, this is quite a good listen for fans of the classic Italian sound, most...

This Italian minor gem from 1976 - the 1st release on the Grog label - is quite scarse, rather unknown and has never been reissued before! The group was formed by ex-Garybaldi drummer Maurizio Cassinelli and the group was Franco Sandi (guitar, vocals), Marco Dondero (flute), Lucian Ottonello (guitar, vocals) Rino Loreto (bass) Maurizio Cassinelli (drums), but there are very high profile guests such as guitarist Bambi Fossati (Garybaldi), keyboardist Aldo De Scalzi (Picchio dal Pozzo), guitarist...

This was the wonderful 1st album that launched this amazing musician's career. A brilliant musician, composer and arranger, the closest comparison I might be able to make is that Albert is the French Frank Zappa, except that that really doesn't do him or his original music justice.
This is a brilliant album, with great melodies, musical surprises galore, brilliant orchestration, & much more. Highly recommended.

This was the fantastic 2nd album by Albert, which, like his first, was originally released on French Atlantic. A brilliant musician, composer and arranger, the closest comparison one can make is that Albert is the French Frank Zappa, except that that doesn't really do Albert or his original music justice.
Coming just two years after his first (the shortest time between albums Albert has ever managed - he works carefully and SLOWLY), this might have been slightly overlooked by folks. Don't make that...
