“A Soul Ascends is a majestic, deeply moving sonic suspension drawn from the essence of Roach's visionary ambient/electronic music. A vast and intimate holding-the-space of heart-centered serenity and compassion, the album couples the body to the eternal flow of a vaporizing weightlessness - back to a divine nothingness, the Tabula Rasa where everything began. The expansive, lush timbral embrace has an undeniable connection to the DNA of Steve's classic-era Structures from Silence and Quiet Music...

"Big Star type Pop-jangler w/ rockin' pulse & a Byrds-ian edge, catchy slide-work on the great "they live by night" -track; private-press from N.Y.C.; w/lyrics-insert” –

"STUNNING !!! These guys should have been MEGA HUGE! super talented, quirky, non conformist. Hard to pigeon hole them too. If you like the The Who, The Damned, Graham Parker & The Rumour types you will most certainly enjoy this. I know I did!!!”—Hector Pascal

“A third collection of previously unreleased recordings by this late 1960’s British psychedelic band fronted by Peter Dunton, who went on to form the legendary band T2. Dunton was a key figure in UK psychedelia, founding or playing a key role in many important bands. In brief, here’s Dunton’s pedigree: Neon Pearl (1967), Please (1967) and (1969), Flies (1968), Gun (1969), T2 (1969-1972), and Infinity (1969-70).
This release follows on from two other superb albums of unreleased music by Please, "1968...

This is new old stock of this 1981 self-released electronic / free jazz / contemporary music album. This is something that I remember from the days of NMDS, although I never actually heard it at the time.

“[This] covers the self-released early-80s Electronic Free Jazz / Improv diversions of one Robert Aaron - the New York "Jazz Musician" / James Chance sideman who was recently arrested in connection to Philip Seymour Hoffman's death.
That aside, let's focus on the music: issued via Aaron's..

CD version includes 7 bonus tracks.
Hard rock with some bits of blues and 1971-style progressive rock touches.

“Previously unreleased second album from Pluto, whose first is highly collectible. Mixed by the band from original master tapes found in the Morgan tape stores. The band includes members of Dry Ice and The Foundations.”

This is the first ever reissue of this very sought after and very good Dutch jazz/rock album from 1974. The band only made two records and both have been some of the most requested items to appear on CD for DECADES!
Unconditionally recommended to fusion fans of the early period of the music.

“Sireena Records has spent nearly 10 years releasing these two special albums on CD! A lot of jazz rock friends from all over the world kept asking about it, but all inquiries with the then SCOPE record.

“Steve Hillage is releasing nine previously unreleased tracks of his recordings during an a capella echo guitar jam session in addition to 5 tracks from the session previously only available in the ‘Searching For The Spark’ box set.
The recordings are part of a series of archived tapes liberated from deep storage by Hillage for the box set, and this tape was labelled 'Wata Trip! 1973'. It was recorded when Hillage was 21, living in the Gong communal house in Sens, France with Miquette Giraudy, as...

“Box O' Todd is a collection of (radio broadcasts of) early Todd shows. Each disc is a different show representing a different year.
The first two shows in the set find Todd backed by The Hello People and there's just as many songs of theirs as there is of Todd's. The third and final show is an early performance with Utopia recorded shortly before their first album was released.
The performances are top notch and the sound quality is generally very good. This is a must own for anyone who loves..

As Weasel said to me, this one “is a ‘70s Miles record on steroids; some of the craziest shit Henry has done in a long time.” He also said: “The Flying Luttenbachers return with yet anoth

Beautiful, hand-numbered, white vinyl edition of 500, curated by Lydia Lunch!

If you didn’t know anything about this album, you would probably associate it with one of the series of albums released on/associated with the composers featured on INA/GRM or a musique concrete tape composer of the late 50s....

“I think there are a lot of people who associate my musical output with either gutbusting displays of extroversion or blistering virtuosic overload. With “Curses”, I wanted to deal more..

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.

“E-Musikgruppe Lux Ohr is a kosmische Musik group from Turku, Finland. Their music is a mixture of ‘Berlin School’ style of sequenced space travels, electro-acoustic improvisations, and krautrock with melancholic and psychedelic moods.

Benoit was the keyboardist for Magma from 1975 to 1978. Additionally, he released a few solo albums in the mid/late 70's, of which this was the first. A keyboard/Moog-dominated record that at times gets amazingly heavy in a wild screaming synthi fusion way and at other times is very wonderfully atmospheric. It is perhaps comparable in timbre and tone to Jan Hammer's best work post Mahavishnu. Some of the material is solo and some features some unbelievably great guests.
If you are a fan of 70s music..

This is the greatly awaited fourth release by this group from Lyon, France, part of a very vibrant and exciting French scene that is currently churning out amazing bands and records!

"First CD of this French band that has recently opened for Magma at Bourg les Valence. A superb recording, heavily influenced by Magma (sound, compositions & spirit). Very much recommended...

BBI is Philippe Bussonet on bass (Magma's magnificent bassist since 1995, as well as one of the powers behind One Shot), Jean-Claude Buire on drums (drummer for Offering in the late 1980s) and Laurent Imperato on guitar (a founding member of Xaal, although he had left by the time they started recording.
This was Philippe's side-band before co-forming One Shot and this studio work was recorded in 1996, but never released until now. They are a power trio that mixes the most 'rock' aspects of One Shot...

Released by the always excellent Soleil Zeuhl label and given who appears on here, you won't be surprised to learn that this is a mostly excellent and very entertaining take on the music of Christian Vander.
All tracks previously unreleased and available elsewhere! Well done and huge fun for Magma/Zeuhl fans.
