"The first ever reissue of Mouvements, originally released in 1973. An impossible to find artifact from the Swiss underground avant-garde scene of Geneva, originally released as a private boxset limited to 150 copies in 1973, only sold at art galleries. A unique, instrumental mix of free-jazz, classical, psych-rock, folk, improv, kraut, funk, and musique-concrete with tape effects. In the late 60s, musician/guitar player Christian Oestreicher, "a savage in the era of twist and free jazz", met artist and...

"Continuing with their reissue campaign of the Toby Robinson's Pyramid label catalog, Mental Experience now present Temple's self-titled release. Probably the most "rock" sounding of all the Pyramid titles, Temple were an ad-hoc outfit born out of several late-night sessions at Dierks Studios (where Toby was working at that time), involving local friends of Toby and other musicians from adjoining studios, among them Zeus B. Held (Birth Control). Temple played a kind of heavy, dark psychedelic krautrock...

"First ever collaboration between Edward Ka-Spel (from The Legendary Pink Dots and Tear Garden) and Steven Stapleton (from Nurse With Wound). It's been years they both wanted to work together and Bisou Records made that happen when they offered them a side on this split LP. The other side is the first musical meeting of Colin "the master of drone" Potter and French sax player Quentin Rollet (The Red Krayola, Mendelson, Nurse With Wound, Prohibition, David Grubbs, Thierry Müller, Ilitch). That first take...

This is a legit, reasonably good sounding, live bootleg recording, sanctioned by Richard & released for Record Store Day. Three of the tracks were never officially recorded by Heldon in the studio. The sound is meh. The music is terrific!

"All tracks side A are unreleased versions and have never been edited before. Color vinyl; Edition of 1000.
Richard Pinhas, the founder of '70s legends Heldon, is one of France's best known experimental musicians and is a key figure in development of rock...

"A reissue of Tyndall's Durch Die Zeiten, originally released in 1983. Having successfully released three albums, the Berlin-based electronic duo Tyndall fell out so badly with one another in 1983 that they ended up splitting the fourth album in two, taking a side each. Jürgen Krehan's half showcases his customarily nimble synth-pop, as well as several pieces influenced by classical music. Rudi Langer launches into celestial revelry on the other side, underpinned here and there by a driving beat...

"A reissue of Tyndall's third album, Reflexionen, originally released in 1982. The third Tyndall album is less experimental than the electronic duo's previous work from 1981 Traumland. The songs, featuring vocoder vocals, are more clearly structured into verses and choruses, the arrangements more considered. Stylistically, Reflexionen is a mix of synth-pop and electronic krautrock, at times not a million miles away from the early works of Andreas Dorau. More so than on their preceding instrumental...

Very rare, electronic music, originally available only on cassette, from a very unlikely musician to be working in this vein. If you heard this with no further information, you would assume it's from the late 70s or early 80s and was released on Sky Records back then and was possibly even the work of one of the Cluster guys!....

"Dennis Young is best known as the percussionist of the New York band Liquid Liquid, which is known for their piece "Cavern" from 1983, which in turn became very well....

"Music For Installations is a collection of new, rare and previously unreleased tracks. All of the material was recorded by Eno for use in his installations covering the period from 1986 until the present (and beyond). Over this time he has emerged as the leading exponent of generative music worldwide and is recognized as one of the foremost audio-visual installation artists of his time.
Musician, artist, thinker, activist Brian Eno first came to international prominence in the early '70s as a...

A new Ronin release is always, always cause for excitement at chez Wayside and this new one is no exception to their unique greatness what-so-ever! Highly recommended!

“Awase, a term from martial arts, means “moving together” in the sense of matching energies, a fitting metaphor for the dynamic precision, tessellated grooves and balletic minimalism of Nik Bärtsch’s Ronin.
Six years have passed since the last release from the Swiss group. In the interim, trimmed from quintet to quartet size...

The 4th album from the band that I consider to be possibly the finest Italian progressive rock band of the 1970's, & certainly a band in the top tier of all early 1970's progressive bands worldwide! Area combined jazz/rock/stolen ethnic music (mostly from Eastern Europe and the Middle East)/the avant garde and more. Superb playing from all (vocals/organ, guitar, electric piano/synths, bass & drums).
While everyone shines, the vocalist, the late Demetrio Stratos is rightly one of the legends of...

Mats Gustafsson – alto, tenor and baritone saxophones
Jason Adasiewicz – vibraphone and balafon

"Discussing this impending studio date, the indefatigable saxophonist Mats Gustafsson and intrepid vibraphonist Jason Adasiewicz decided to compose new pieces for one another. The resulting tracks – which also include a hallucinogenic arrangement of “Timeless,” dedicated to its composer, the recently deceased guitarist John Abercrombie – show a markedly different side of both musicians. Quiet, at ..

Ken Vandermark, reeds
Michael Snow, piano

"Although he is best known as a groundbreaking experimental filmmaker, one of the architects of structural cinema, and visual artist, Michael Snow has been active as a musician since the 1950s. In Greenwich Village of the 1960s, his loft was the site of concerts by Cecil Taylor and other paragons of free jazz, and Snow’s film New York Eye and Ear featured a soundtrack by Albert Ayler’s group and starred its members.
A brilliant keyboardist and..

Fred Lonberg-Holm, cello
Amphibians of the Everglades, noises

"Never one to shy away from unusual projects, cellist Fred Lonberg-Holm set out into the mosquito-infested swamps of Florida’s Everglades in search of a host of amphibious collaborators. In the night air, he bowed and plucked in conversation with the environment, especially the vocalizing frogs, which seemed to take him on as an exotic member of their own.
Impeccably documented by the experienced soundscape artist and field..

Beaver Harris, drums

"Of all the never-issued-on-CD items in history’s dustbin, A Well-Kept Secret is perhaps the most egregious. The beautiful studio recording, made under the watchful ear of über-producer Hal Willner, was first issued o

Steve Lacy, soprano saxophone and Japanese bird whistle Steve Potts, alto and soprano saxophone Irene Aebi, cello, violin, voice, bells Kent Carter, bass Oliver Johnson, drums Originally released in 1979 as a double-LP on Hat Hut, Stamps was Steve Lacy’s first for the legendary Swiss label, and it remains one of the strongest statements of what he termed the “scratchy seventies.”
With the classic lineup of Lacy’s soprano saxophone, Steve Potts on soprano and alto sax, Irene Aebi on cello...

"Acclaimed pianist Gwilym Simcock follows a sustained period of touring with legendary guitarist Pat Metheny with a brand new collaborative project. Combining Simcock's formidable skills in composition, arrangement and improvisation with the lyrics and melodies of Welsh/Bajan singer-songwriter Kizzy Crawford and an ensemble drawn from leading Welsh chamber orchestra Sinfonia Cymru, Birdsong tells a story through music inspired by Carngafallt. Carngafallt is part of the Welsh rainforest territory and home...

No indication where these recordings are from, but they are very, very good quality (as in professional, minus a couple of generations) from and I will guess that they are professionally recorded shows from either Winterland or The Fillmore.
Nothing that Cream fans don't already have live versions of, but this is still pretty great!

Good quality off-air BBC broadcasts from 66-68 and the 1967 Stockholm show.

"Extracts from this were released as a 7" record on Incus as Incus EP1 AMM - At The Roundhouse
This is the first release of the complete concert
Recorded live in quad-sound at the International Carnival of Experimental Sound, London, August of 1972. This CD is encoded with ProLogic to allow playback in four channels, but will also play on a normal CD player."

"Second album from this Brazilian prog band. Mar Assombrado's style fits right in with a lot of Brazilian prog artists. Their sound features a strong does of symphonic keyboard sounds bolstered with beautiful flute and aggressive guitar and violin leads."

To say that the guitarists of the Kalahari Desert community in Botswana featured here have a unique technique is not subject to argument. See the below video!
And that's not just one eccentric; that's the way folks in this area play guitar!
Fascinating and joyous stuff!


“I got a right to say FUCK YOU!!!” is how the new album from veteran guitarist Marc Ribot’s trio Ceramic Dog starts off, with Ribot howling in anger at corruption, tyranny, life in general, and nothing in particular. If you’ve got a serious case of outrage fatigue, Ceramic Dog’s explosive cocktail of balls-to-the-wall abandon, chameleonic disregard for style constraints, political commentary, and absurdist humor is just the shot in the ass (or kick in the arm?) you might need. In fact, Ceramic Dog’s new...

"Pharaoh Overlord steer an exceedingly singular course on their forthcoming album, Zero. Augmented by Antti Boman (Demilich) and Hans Joachim Irmler (Faust), the psychedelic supergroup (consisting of members from Circle) have taken their oeuvre to a whole new psychiatric plateau on their ninth studio album. Libido-driven arithmetics do not apply on these aberrant tracks. Zero provides an offbeat rock implosion, with its sonic realm contorting inwards like a sapient voice muffled by the gentle void of...

"Dividing his time between Brooklyn and London, veteran drummer Jeff Williams is in the midst of an exceptional run of albums on the Whirlwind Recordings. ‘Lifelike’ features alto saxophonist John O’Gallagher, a fiery presence on Williams’ first two Whirlwind releases, tenor saxophonist Josh Arcoleo, pianist Kit Downes and bassist Sam Lasserson and guest trumpeter Goncalo Marquez.
’Outlier’, in 2016, showcased his working UK quintet in a set hailed by All About Jazz for its “imaginative...

"A previously unreleased album from the late Hedy West - one of the finest folk singers of her generation. 'From Granmaw and Me' draws upon material learned from Hedy's maternal Grandmother - Lillie West - songs that had migrated from Britain to the USA during the 17th and 19th centuries.
American singer-songwriter Hedy West belonged to the same generation of folk revivalists as Joan Baez and Judy Collins. Her most famous song "500 Miles" is one of America's most popular folk songs. She was described..

"This is the missing link in the Nick Drake story."-Joe Boyd

"A deluxe, limited edition 196 page hardback book with 2 CDs. 'The Tide's Magnificence' collects together the complete poems and songs of Molly Drake, mother of Nick Drake.
This sumptuously produced book is sure to be sought out by collectors.
The Tide's Magnificence is a beautiful full-colour 196 page hard back book containg 79 poems written by Molly Drake from 1935 until her death in 1993. With 26 songs across two CDs...

"Odyssey is the definitive compendium of solo trumpet music by Bill Dixon, as compiled by the artist. Dixon (1925-2010) was known primarily for his small and large ensemble masterpieces of the decades between Intents and Purposes (1967) and Tapestries (2009). While he appeared infrequently in solo performances, he was continually evolving in studio through these years a remarkably nuanced and powerful solo music -- especially during the mid-1970s, as a counterpart to daily work with student orchestras...

"Over the course of a decade, Bang on a Can founding composer Michael Gordon has collaborated with the world-renowned Kronos Quartet on a series of provocative works that have sought to stretch, bend and otherwise reshape the boundaries of modern classical music. Clouded Yellow assembles these works for the first time, perfectly encapsulating the breadth and complexity of this long-standing creative partnership.

Clouded Yellow features four pieces written for Kronos by Gordon: the title track...

Charlie is best known as the bassist of Knifeworld, but he has a lot of music and styles up his sleeve.
The Divine Abstract is his first solo album and on it he plays acoustic, electric & classical guitars, Fender VI, acoustic & electric bass guitars, sitar & pipa.
He's joined by a huge array of guest musicians
Katharine Blake: treble & sopranino recorders

New, remixed, remastered and hi-res / 5.1 edition of the first solo album released by the bassist of Yes when the band took a break after the Relayer tour.
It's one of the best two (and maybe the best) of the solo albums released by the members of the band, imo.

"Deluxe box set including two CDs, two DVDs two seven inch singles and a 180gm vinyl LP pressing plus a 36 page book. Digitally remastered and expanded edition of Yes founder Chris Squire's legendary 1975 solo album Fish Out Of...

"Sanctuary III is the third part of Rob Reed's musical homage to Mike Oldfield. Its really quite amazing how he's nailed the sound down perfectly.
Everyone knows that Rob is a fine keyboardist but the ongoing surprise is that he's quite an accomplished guitarist.
He plays all the instruments on the album except drums which are covered by Simon Philips, recorders by Les Penning, and Tom Newman on bodhran.
There are female wordless vocals which just drive the Oldfield connection home.

"Soul Jazz Records’ new Space, Energy and Light is a collection of music by early electronic and synthesizer pioneers (from the 1960s through the 1970s), mid-1970s proto-new age gurus and 1980s guerrilla D-I-Y cassette-era electronic artists, spanning in total over a near 30-year time frame. All of these artists used electronic advancements in music technology as a means of exploring not only space and the idea of the future, but also of looking inwards to the soul and of creating music in harmony with...

"In 1973 Sun Ra and Arkestra established base in Variety Recording Studios in NYC to record an album for the Impulse! jazz label; depending on who you ask, this album was to be either titled Cymbals or Symbols. Half of this set eventually surfaced on the astro black market, but we've gone back to the original reels to bring you Cymbals as it was meant to be heard and paired with a second disc (Symbols) of unheard material from the 1973 sessions. Hear Ra's Baroque soundscapes, electrolytic clusters and...

One of the great 70s Ra releases, this is one of the few that came out on Impulse in the early 70s that was not a reissue. I've owned the lp for years and have waited and waited for a CD issue. Here it is!

"One of a handful of albums Sun Ra released on the legendary Impulse! label in the early '70s, Astro Black provides a comprehensive picture of where the Arkestra was around the time, drawing to the end of their ultra-free period and beginning to investigate more traditional jazz forms, and even.

"Pennsylvania native Keith Kenniff's output as Goldmund has established him as one of the preeminent composers of minimal piano-based ambient music alongside peers like Hauschka, Dustin O'Halloran, and even Ryuichi Sakamoto, who himself once described Kenniff's work as "so, so, so beautiful". Hyperbolic as it may sound, Goldmund's newest collection Occasus may be his most exquisite yet. Where his previous recordings trod faithfully and sincerely on paths of dimly lit, polaroid-esque nostalgia, Occasus...

"Daytime Viewing (1979-80) is an extended narrative song, based on a casual analysis of daytime television drama and the audience phenomena such programming addresses. The piece explores the use of fantasy as a survival mechanism against loneliness, illustrating the human compulsion to inflate the mundane to mythological proportions. A central female character weaves tales, using threads of personal experience and the idea of TV as friend, as mantra, and as transformational window between imagined....

"Maria Monti's 1974 LP Il Bestario is a rare item even in its native country. Monti is an Italian singer and actress with a noteworthy career, performing as a cabaret singer in the '60s, an ambitious avant-garde folk artist in the '70s, and starring in films by directors such Sergio Leone (Fistful of Dynamite) and Bernardo Bertolucci (1900) all the while. In addition to lyrics by the infamous poet Aldo Braibanti, Il Bestiario features arrangements and synthesizer from legendary avant-garde composer Alvin...

"The Creation's only LP, cut from the original mono masters for the first time since 1967. Producer Shel Talmy masterfully captured every bow scrape, tom rattle, and mod growl before the UK quartet imploded after two brilliant, but short years. Originally issued only in Germany, We Are Paintermen collects the Creation's first three singles and adds a handful of period covers culled from the band’'s raucous stage show. Pressed on heavy-weight pink vinyl to make even the most seasoned collector nerd sweat."..

First-ever vinyl issue of a classic late 80s classy-pop release!

"Martin Newell spent the '80s being compared to Robyn Hitchcock, XTC, and other lesser-known '60s-influenced pop maestros, so it was poetic that XTC's Andy Partridge would produce this Newell solo album. The result isn't a stretch from Martin's days as The Cleaners from Venus or The Brotherhood of Lizards. The production is cleaner than on Newell's home recordings, but the songs are as melodic and adventurous as ever. If one's...

"In August 1988, Spacemen 3 embark on one of the strangest events in the band’s already strange history. Billed as “An Evening Of Contemporary Sitar Music” (although consciously omitting the sitar), the group would play in the foyer of Watermans Arts Centre in Brentford, Middlesex to a largely unsuspecting and unsympathetic audience waiting to take their seats for Wim Wenders’ film Wings Of Desire. Spacemen 3’s proceeding set, forty-five minutes of repetitive drone-like guitar riffs, could be seen as...

"Pholas Dactylus is one of the many interesting Italian one shot bands. Their single album Concerto delle Menti was released in 1973. They have a dark and ominous sound, rather reminiscent of the first tracks on Banco's masterpiece Darwin". The album consists of one 50 minute composition with complex musical structures, time changes, etc. The album starts with a two minute spoken intro before the music sets in. About halfway through the composition, there is a short, but interesting part with a free rock...
