“Written, programmed, recorded and produced throughout 2019/20 by Ed Wynne in Blue Bubble Studios by the sea, this exploratory and diverse musical adventure comprises seven new tracks spanning 45 minutes. Inspired by the Scottish hills, valleys and beaches surrounding his studio, Wynne feels that lockdown in a strange kind of way has provided space for the Earth to breathe for a while and for people to rediscover it's resonant healing frequency.

“The CD "Life Is Almost Wonderful" was only sold at concerts by the duo they played together back in 2002 in Belgium and Netherlands. If they had set out to be invisible, Coyne and Croker couldn't have planned it much better. But they were two artists not bothered about record company deals, distribution and other practical matters. Never mind, the main thing is this marvellous acoustic album.
Although "recorded by post" (Croker sent the basic guitar tracks and Kevin improvised the lyrics on top)...

“The brand new 6th studio album of the celebrated formation with numerous new guests! The excitement was great when in 2017 "Terra Circus", a new studio album by the Electric Family, was released after a break of 10 years. The resounding success of the album also led to live concerts all over Germany. Even then, the band promised that it wouldn't be that long before the next studio album. Promise kept! After only three years, "Echoes Don't Lie", the 6th studio album by the Electric Family will be...

“Asmus Tietchens is a sound artist and composer from Hamburg, Germany. He got interested in Musique Concrete by listening to a German radio programme when he was 10 years old. In 1965, at the age of 18, Asmus started experimenting with tape loops and turned them into musical collages. Soon, the use of synthesizers was added. In 1980 his debut album Nachtstücke was released, produced by Peter Baumann of Tangerine Dream. This was soon followed by a series of albums of electronic pop music for the Sky...

“Two years before their Billboard chart topping Virgin Beauty album, Ornette Coleman and Prime Time, his mutant funk-fusion outfit, here perform an extensive set including Song X, Dancing In Your Head, Turnaround, In All Languages and Kathelin Gray.
This 2CD set was recorded at Live Under The Sky, Yomuri-Land Theatre East, Tokyo..

A previously unreleased, studio, big-band session with nearly 2 dozen players! One piece is nearly 30 minutes long and there are 3 other tracks that range from 10 to 19 minutes!
Can you say LOST TREASURE?

“In the post World War II era, dozens of young African Americans in South Central Los Angeles found their way to careers in music. In a community facing challenging social conditions and with little to no outside support, they would become artists, supported by the best that their...

“The definitive edition of Free Form Patterns. This had been released once before on CD in the U.S. on an excreable sounding disc by the hit-and-mostly-miss Collectables label. Those familiar with the older CD will find the sound of this new issue a revelation for sure, it sounds as if you're sitting in on the session. Conversation snippets between Hopkins, the band and the producer on the bonus discs add a heightened sense of realism. The first disc has the original album plus one bonus track...

A collaboration between Blegvad (singer/songwriter with a number of fine albums to his credit as well as some avant-garde leanings, having been a member of Faust, Henry Cow and Slapp Happy) and (Mr.) Andy Partridge (leader/principal songwriter of XTC, one of the great pop bands of the last 2 decades).

"There seem to be some several things missing from music these days, one of which must surely be imagination. Given the sharp upturn in control and flexibility offered by the recording equipment an

“The 1989 classic album newly cut from masters approved by Andy Partridge, pressed on 200g super-heavyweight vinyl in new gatefold sleeve”

One of the smartest, best and most distinctive pop bands of their time. Highly recommended. Their ninth album.

“Alan Wakeman is a British saxophonist and clarinettist who has been active since the 1960s. He is associated with Mike Westbrook, Paul Lytton, Soft Machine, and Graham Collier."

"The list of dramatis personae tells its own story: the cream of British jazz of the period assembled to play a series of imaginatively conceived compositions by Wakeman that move between inside and outside playing, swaying majestically between the exposition of powerful, Mingus-like themes that dissolve into...

IMPORTANT: THIS IS A PRE-ORDER OF THE LIMITED EDITION of this massive and beautiful box set. These are due to arrive around November 15 and we will ship your order as soon as we have them.
PLEASE DO NOT ORDER ANYTHING ELSE ALONG WITH THIS PRE-ORDER, as the rest of your order will be delayed. Thank you.

"Tangerine Dream are one of the true pioneers of electronic and ambient music, and the albums they recorded for Virgin Records between 1980 and 1983 remain classics of the genr

“An addendum to Makaya McCraven's critically-lauded 2018 release, the "Universal Beings E&F Sides" presents fourteen new pieces of organic beat music cut from the original sessions, prepared and produced by Makaya as a soundtrack to the "Universal Beings" documentary film.”

Tracks 1, 5 & 11 recorded August 29th, 2017, at H010 in Ridgewood, Queens, New York. Featuring:
Brandee Younger - harp
Joel Ross - vibraphone
Dezron Douglas - double bass
Makaya McCraven - drums

“Raymond Scott is best known as the composer of famous tunes that pop up throughout Warner Bros cartoons. In the late ‘Thirties, his celebrated Raymond Scott Quintette was a huge commercial success, a singular ensemble playing a unique and unmistakable style of jazz, full of whimsy and bravura. By the late ‘Forties, he had become an electronic music pioneer, both as an instrument inventor and composer. His music is everywhere these days, not just cartoons. For example, Lizzo’s recent hit “Tempo” samples...

“In late November of 2018, long-time collaborators (& life-long Los Angelenos) Carlos Niño & Miguel Atwood-Ferguson flew to Chicago to participate in the album release performance of Makaya McCraven’s Universal Beings. Just 11 months prior, Carlos & Miguel were part of recording the ‘Los Angeles Side’ of Universal Beings at Jeff Parker’s house in Altadena, California, and this performance in Chicago would be the first time that all of the musicians reunited to re-learn and perform the music they’d...

“This is an album I have dreamed of for decades. I've experimented with this kind of sustained harmonic shifting and drone but never come close. This is what organs are built for but very few composers have the courage to explore the unique possibilities they create.”–Stuart Maxwell

“The new Sarah Davachi record is an 80 minute, 17 track double album meditation on impermanence and endings, framed by minimalistic organ études and careful harmonic layering. On two tracks the artist’s own vocals...

Nicole Mitchell flutes, electronics

“Shimmering columns of light will guide you, a grand synesthesia riding on a kaleidoscope, oscillating between hushed moments, where sound unfolds the firmament, unfurled like a cloak upon the shoulders of the real world. Listen: this is not a “track”, a circular appendage looped around a spindle and activated by some muscular stone on stylus. Too many people bled for the diamond there, too many questions remain...

The only live album of the B-52’s in their great, very early prime. Total fun.

"We opened for the Talking Heads at the Berklee Center in Boston just six weeks after our first record was released. We were a little scared of the audience so we kept our heads down and focused – and we danced like mad when there was a break! Ricky was so fierce on the guitar – so intense – it was all so raw and live and we loved it."

“In May 2018, Jaimie Branch took up a month-long residency in the shipping container-turned-recording studio at Pioneer Works, an arts center down the street from her home in Red Hook, Brooklyn. She called up Jason Nazary, and he rolled by the studio loaded with acoustic drums, electronic triggers, modular FX unit, synths, sequencers, and a myriad of processors. Branch engineered the sessions, and brought her rig to the table: trumpet, synths, delay/looper pedal, auxiliary percussion, and a Roland TR08 drum

“Less overtly adventurous than its predecessor, Empyrean Isles, Maiden Voyage nevertheless finds Herbie Hancock at a creative peak. In fact, it's arguably his finest record of the '60s, reaching a perfect balance between accessible, lyrical jazz and chance-taking hard bop. By this point, the pianist had been with Miles Davis for two years, and it's clear that Miles' subdued yet challenging modal experiments had been fully integrated by Hancock. Not only that, but through Davis, Hancock became part of...

Sally Gates – Guitar
Matt Hollenberg – Bass VI
Kenny Grohowski – Drums
Trevor Dunn – Bass on “Everybody's Dead, Dave”

“Titan to Tachyons is a new trio led by guitarist Sally Gates (ex Orbweaver, Gigan), backed by the powerhouse rhythm section of Kenny Grohowski (Secret Chiefs 3, Brand X, etc) and Matt Hollenberg (Cleric, John Zorn). Instrumentally depicting the realms of surrealistic sci-fi, the band make use of angular and experimental passages, juxtaposed by fluid grooves and..

A Italian trio of vocals/keyboards, bass/vocals and drums.

“Midnight Lullaby is the latest album from guitarist/composer Julian Curwin. In essence a collection of dark lullabies, it is a subtle blend of jazz, classical, film music and latin sounds. The album features an all-star ensemble of pianist Stu Hunter (The Migration, Tina Harrod, Moniker), bassist Lloyd Swanton (The Necks, Ambon, The catholics) and percussionist

This is a live recording of Phideaux Xavier (acoustic guitar, bass, piano & vocals), Steve Unruh (of Resistor and Samurai Of Prog) (acoustic guitar, violin, flute, vocals) and Valerie Gracious (piano and vocals), recorded live on July 13, 2019.
One disc is all songs by Steve and one disc is all songs by Phideaux and this works out really nicely and has a sort of ‘unplugged’ vibe to all those Phideaux songs we know well!

Second album of aggressive electric jazz, instrumental prog and funky basswork.

“Guitarist Bon Lozaga (Gongzilla, Gong) bassist Ryan Martinie (Mudvayne) and drummer Mitch Hull once again worked with producer Jamie King (Between The Buried And Me) and a cast of guest players to create their new release.
"Glint" is another instrumental driven album with many flavors and even features violin and a full horn section on several tracks, expanding the bands signature sound of fusion, metal...

“Subversion Through Jazz examines the beginning of the British progressive jazz (BPJ) movement from 1956 to 1964, attempting to identify and plot the progress of its coming into being. This eight-year period of inception was set against the backdrop of two specifically relevant world events: the failed Hungarian revolution in 1956; and the Cuban Missile Crisis, a potentially apocalyptic nuclear standoff between the United States and the USSR in the Gulf of Mexico in 1962. Like many art forms in the UK...

Stan Robinson - Tenor Sax
Ian Carr - Trumpet
Coleridge Goode - Bass
Trevor Tomkins - Drums

Recorded at University College London on the 14th March 1966. For a previously unheard, unprofessionally recorded tape, this is absolutely much more than listenable and enjoyable!

“It has proven quite a challenge to pinpoint the exact venue and date of this concert. The origin

"Music mastermind Jan Zehrfeld certainly does not shy away from difficult musical experiments. This has always been a fundamental principle of Panzerballett. After the success of the last album X-Mas Death Jazz, one was left wondering if it could possibly be topped and justly so. The extremely talented drummer Sebastian Lanser had set the bar very high with his intricate drum arrangements. That being said, Jan Zehrfeld came up with a new and crazy plan: to bring together and collaborate with not just one...

Masami Akita : noise electronics, percussion
Mats Gustafsson : flute, fluteophone, baritone saxophone, live electronics and percussion
Balazs Pandi : drums, percussion

“On the all-too-rare occasions when Japanese noise legend Masami Akita (aka Merzbow), Swedish saxophone aggressor Mats Gustafsson and blistering Hungarian drummer Balás Pándi converge, listeners know to brace themselves for a brain-rattling sonic assault. Each of these men alone had long been established as among the....

“Over the course of its previous four albums, UK punk-jazz outfit WorldService Project carried its keen-edged, window-rattling irreverence across the globe, casting an eviscerating glance inward while spreading its message of chaotic compassion to the scattered remnants of the former British...

“This album showcases Barre's unique skills as a musical arranger, blending original compositions with songs from the Tull catalog! CD comes packaged in a digipak with 2 rare bonus tracks!”

“Martin Barre has produced his own solo albums away from his work in Jethro Tull, but AWAY WITH WORDS is by far his finest offering to date. A deft combination of classic Tull tunes (rearranged) and his own compositions, the music is a guitar-lover's extravaganza, plus mandolin, bouzouki, flute and other...

Angelica Sanchez - Piano (left channel)
Marilyn Crispell - Piano (right channel)

“Two pianos sounding in tandem can feel – given that the instrument belongs to the percussion family – like a kind of 176-key gamelan, an atmospheric orchestra ringing and resonating and radiating in unity. In that way, the music of How to Turn the Moon by pianists Angelica Sanchez and Marilyn Crispell vibrates with a special, luminous quality. In composing all the pieces for this album, Angelica was inspired...

In 2018 their debut album "From the Lake" was and the follow-up album "Into the Sea" was relea

Latest release from the very good, long-lived Chilean instrumental power-trio, with a definite King Crimson influence.

"The current band Tryo aims at supplying a modern and mainly instrumental Progressive rock of quality. Intense King Crimson-like passages alternate with heavy jazz-rock fusion sequences, the whole being linked with nice intimist passages. The electric band (Guitar, bass and drums) then leaves space to an acoustic trio with many instrumental possibilities. After four brilliant...

Debut CD from a 64-tone just-intonated electric blues band led by Jon Catler, who has been working microtonally for decades and decades and has most famously performed with LaMonte Young's ensembles.

"Willie McBlind is a psychedelic electric Delta blues band led by Jon Catler, the world's leading Harmonic guitarist, and Babe Borden, known for her ability to sing any pitch, combining forces in this band to present a dynamic and powerful stage show. Willie McBlind is a band that can satisfy true...

"“Invention, it must be humbly admitted,” as Mary Shelley humbly admitted in her introduction to her 1818 novel “Frankenstein,” “does not consist in creating out of void, but out of chaos.”
Not out of void, but out of Tokyo, Sundays & Cybele have created “Chaos & Systems,” the monstrously overwhelming new album that could well serve as the band’s mission statement.
After (loudly) announcing their intentions on 2015’s ear-popping “Heaven,” the initial impression of “Chaos & Systems” leads one t

J. Frank Wilson had only one hit, but it was a huge one! With his band the Cavaliers, he brought Wayne Cochran's teen-death melodrama "Last Kiss" to the upper reaches of the American pop charts in the fall of 1964 — a million selling record subsequently covered successfully by Wednesday and Pearl Jam. During the fall of 1964, the charts were dominated by the British Invasion, particularly the Beatles, so it was quite a feat for Wilson & the Cavaliers to scale such great heights. Inevitably, such sudden...

“In February of 1969, Johnny Winter signed with Columbia Records for a record sum of $500,000 and gained worldwide fame seemingly overnight (even though his recording career started in 1959). An ensuing rush to cash in on Winter’s fame resulted in countless hodge-podge compilations of his pre-Columbia recordings with inferior sounding dubs and mixes. The compilations were also devoid of any unifying theme or chronology for the material except that Johnny Winter had something to do with the recordings...

“By the time 1966 ended, many of the groups in Texas that started out playing British Invasion and folk-rock music, were now immersing themselves in the newly emerging psychedelic music. The five groups that comprise this album reflect the changes that occurred during this period and four of them even changed their names to sound more psychedelic. The Nomads became Smoke, Carrols Mood became The Sights And Sounds, The New Imperials became The Front Page News, and The Boys became The Remaining Few....

"In 1966, famed lead guitarist Rod Prince (later of Bubble Puppy) re-wrote the 13th Floor Elevators' song 'Tried To Hide' as 'All Night Long' and released it with the Bad Seeds as their third single. They were the number one band at the time in Corpus Christi. Although 'All Night Long' would beat the Elevators' 'Tried To Hide' (on International Artists) to the market, the Bad Seeds disbanded in the summer of 1966 and other renowned Corpus bands would follow in their footsteps, most scoring top ten hits...

"The best known girl group in Texas during the late 60s was The Heart Beats of Lubbock. They made it to Hollywood for a Battle of the Bands contest on the Paul Revere and Mark Lindsay hosted TV show, Happening '68. The Heart Beats shut down all the other male groups and won the Battle of the Bands on nationwide TV. Considering that no one in the band was older than 17, this was quite an accomplishment.
All seven recordings by The Heart Beats are included on this album, along with other great female...

“From 1965 to 1967, McAllen was the happening scene for some of the wildest music to emanate from Texas in the 60's. The label that played host to these bands was Jimmy Nichol's Pharaoh Records and this album contains the best the label had to offer.
Contains in depth coverage on the McAllen bands with rare photos, radio charts, and interviews, making this album a journey to pharaoh's valley that can't be missed. Ninteen track compilation with songs by The Cavaliers, The Headstones, Christopher And...

“In the 60's, Abilene, Texas had a thriving music scene. Bands enamored with the British Invasion sound of The Rolling Stones, The Yardbirds, and The Beatles formed in droves. The top band in Abilene was The Chevelle V, whose best known track, 'Come Back Bird' employed the British slang for 'girl' and the beat of The Yardbirds' 'I'm A Man.' The other popular Abilene bands, such as The Livin' End, The Continentals and The Coachmen, comprise the other recordings on this album, making this the most....

"Long recognized as two of the best garage bands from Michigan, The Unrelated Segments whose 'The Story Of My Life' has appeared on Rhino's Nuggets box set and The Tidal Waves who scored a number one hit with 'Farmer John' are the main focus of this compilation of Detroit garage bands. All of The Unrelated Segments and The Tidal Waves material are included on this CD, in the finest sound quality yet.
The other Detroit area bands, while nearly forgotten today, released a fine batch of recordings...

“The Troyes exploded onto the music scene with 'Rainbow Chaser' a regional smash hit that climbed to number 3 on the top 40 in September of 1966. Sensing a new phenomenon, famed bandleader Ray Anthony (who already had smash hits with 'Dragnet' and 'Peter Gunn') signed the group to his new rock label Space Records. His faith in the band was so big that nearly two albums worth of material were recorded at United Sound (Detroit) in 1966 and 1967. Unfortunately, only two singles were issued and the rest of...

“After releasing the “Psychedelic Moods” album, in October of 1966, Mark Barkan envisioned another psychedelic album for his next release. It was to be performed by a Greenwich Village band called “Inner Sanctum”.
The theme of the album was to be a psychedelic journey into the various psyches of the mind. The trip started with a journey into the past (The House Of Yesterday) then covered the inner workings of the mind (ID) then the descent into madness (Hydro Pyro) hallucination (Purple Floating)...

“While releasing only three singles in the early 1970's, Seompi's mystique has continued to grow through the ensuing decades. Three posthumous releases issued in the late 1990's only added to Seompi's aura—even though two were off speed and the third has been long out of print. This was the status quo for the past couple of decades until now with the release of "Guns In The Skies". Starting off with the hard rocker "AWOL" and then spacing out with the fourteen minute unreleased opus titled "Synergy....

"The Outcasts (of San Antonio) whose signature song 'I'm In Pittsburgh (And It's Raining)' has been covered by numerous neo-60s bands and is just one of their 12 great recordings on Route 1966, and all of them have been re-mixed from the original four track masters for the first time.
These recordings reflect the short-lived era, when the Farfisa or Vox Continental was a mainstay for a rock and roll band from Texas, just before the psychedelic music craze got underway, led by The Psychedelic Sounds...
