Nurse With Wound List

"With Floury Hand (Sketches) is exhilarating listening (and viewing), and in a world now without Lars, poignant and bittersweet." – Dave Lynch/All Music Guide...

LONG LONG LONG out of print, we found 9 copies hiding in the shelves. Nothing other than the two Cuneiform titles is in print by Lars now, so don’t delay...

Lars I think we all know from his over 30 years of great work solo, with Samla/Zamla/Von Zamla, while Yuriko is a Japanese violinist who participates in Lars' Global Home Project group.
Issued only in Japan in a limited edition of 500 copies, this has duos for keyboards/accordion and violin. Almost 30' long and chock-full of melodies

The 1st & I think by far the best of two by this fusion/free jazz supergroup, with Hugh Hopper-bass, Elton Dean-alto & saxello, Keith Tippett-piano, electric piano & Joe Gallivan-drums, drum synths.
Somehow I managed to see these guys when I went to London in 1977 and seeing these early heroes of mine was something I nearly could not have imagined ever happening!
This combines Canterbury-ish jazz rock with the more outward bound stylings of Elton & Keith. This has been out of print for many...

The 2nd and much more obscure release by this free jazz/fusion supergroup, with Hugh Hopper-bass, Elton Dean-alto & saxello, Keith Tippett-piano, electric piano & Joe Gallivan-drums, drum synths.

Reissued once before on CD, but unavailable for...

Freshly remastered from the master tapes and issued on CD from the master tapes for the first time, this was the second solo album by Soft Machine bassist and composer Hugh Hopper. This was Hugh's second solo album and his first solo album after leaving..

Originally released only as a limited edition in the early 1990s, and out of print for over 5 years, Meccano Pelorus was Hughs fourth album and the first release under his own name since the 1970s! Featuring his great FrangloDutch band (Patrice...

This puppy was Hugh's third solo album, originally released around 1978, and a really hard one to find. I remember being thrilled when I scored a copy in London in 1979. One side is solo multi-tracked basses, recorded at home, while the other was live with band (Elton Dean-saxes, Mike Travis-drums, Jean-Pierre Carolfi-keyboards, and Jean-Pierre Weiller-bass; so two basses!) in Bordeaux, France, 3/20/74.
This is very much a 'home-made' album; the home recordings are very cool, but they include a...

Hugh Hopper-bass guitar, Simon Picard-tenor sax, Steve Franklin-keyboards, Charles Hayward-drums...

This is subtitled "Songs by Hugh Hopper" and that's just what it is, as it collects tunes from the Voiceprint catalog of his songs and even includes a otherwise unavailable version of "Was a Friend" with Robert Wyatt singing!...

"I got a message a few months ago from Hugh Hopper's wife Christine. She reported that since Hugh's passing, she's been struggling with finances. Of course she's also struggling emotionally, as she misses him terribly, but the gist of her message...

"This is the final of a ten part series curated by the late Mike King, which cherrypicks some of the best and most intriguing items from Hugh Hopper's archive. Until he died a few years ago, Hugh Hoppe, probably best known for his work with Soft Machine, was one of Britain's most versatile and innovative bass players, and this multi album set confirms what a sad loss to both jazz and rock his passing was. Vale Hugh. Vale Mike."

This was the album that Richard and Hugh were working on in 1983, when both their fortunes, and the fortunes of their type of music was undoubtedly at their worst.

This is a record of songs - some written by Richard and some by Hugh and is...

This is the ninth of a ten part series compiled by the late Mike King. This is five edited versions of Facelift, performed by Soft Machine, presented in varying sonic quality (although all are at least decently listenable for insane fans, said the insane fan). They are hard edited to play into each other.

2. Le Bataclan, Paris 6/25/69 5:28

"Hugh Hopper is ever the surprising chap, always trying new, different musical avenues. Here he's having a go with that atmospheric kind of ECM type jazzy thing, where nimble creation and diversion, mix and clash, with instrumental textures and breezy...

In the early/mid 00s, Hugh started working with his computer and started cutting up and putting together music in the new technological version of how he did it starting in 1963, when Daevid Allen showed him what a tape loop was. He made two full...

Philippe Besombes is a French electronic musician of the 70s and this reissues four of his works from the 70s, both solo and with his group Hydravion.
The two solo releases, Libra (1975) and Ceci Est Cela (1979) have both been previously released on CD by MIO, but they have been out of print for a decade. These include the bonus tracks that were on the MIO releases. The two by his 'electronic rock band' Hydravion [Hyrdravion (1977) and Stratos Airlines (1979)] have never been reissued on CD before...

This set, which includes THREE ALBUMS of previously unheard live recordings from 1967-1969 by the band that grew out of Pärson Sound and turned into Trad, Gras Och Stenar and perfectly exemplified the mind meeting of Terry Riley with The Velvet Underground, is just a great as you would hope. Recommended.

"Silence present a five-LP box set featuring International Harvester titled Remains. The box contains their debut album from 1968 Sov Gott Rose-Marie and Hemåt from 1969, along with three full...

The 1st ever reissue of a frighteningly rare 1969 album by the musicians of Parson Sound (who, it should be remembered, never released anything during their lifetimes, so that this is the first music that anyone outside of those who saw them perform every heard!). This combines the trance/drone/psych/ minimalism/hippie rock with a bit more of a hard rock/Hawkwind edge - which is pretty amazing as Hawkwind weren't even around then! Includes a well done booklet with lots of photos & notes, as well as a bonus

The second, final and definitely much more whacked album of the two by this (acid) folk/progressive trio who released this to complete indifference on Transatlantic in 1971. Derek Noy wrote the material, sang lead and played guitar, trumpet, trombone and 'zelda chord', Denis Conlan played drums and Michael Bairstow played flute, clarinets and saxophones. There were also some excellent and at times really odd orchestrations. Three long tracks here. Wonderful to see this reissued legitimately and rather...

(In)famous, bootleg-quality, originally import-only live CD by the 'Islands' version of King Crimson, recorded live in the USA, just before the band collapsed in February and March, 1972.

Note: This is my personal opinion: Not even Robert Fripp can polish the sonic turd that is Earthbound and make it sound 'good'. Still, the Summit Studios stuff is quite good quality and there are bonus tracks which are better than most of what was originally on the album.

"The thirteenth release in the King Crimson 40th Anniversary series.
Earthbound was originally issued in 1972 and marked the final statement by the band's Islands-era incarnation.

Yes, the previous four studio albums were anywhere from very good to amazing, but this album signaled a new beginning and the emergence of a band that was one of the great, far-reaching groups whose influence is still being felt to this day and which...

Yes, it's overkill, but it's kind of magnificent overkill, as it includes every recording there is by this band and much more. Read below to see what is included in this insanely deluxe set. The live performance DVD is beyond revelatory, as is the...

This five song CDEP with two old songs (and - uh - 3 new ones) was originally released officially only in Japan in 2002. It makes its 'outside of Japan' debut here! I haven't kept up with KC in recent years but I was surprised how great most of this was..

“King Crimson Live at Summit Studios is a live album of radio session recordings by the band King Crimson. The album was recorded at Summit Studios, Denver, Colorado, United States, 12 March 1972. The performance was notable for the absence of the band's trademark Mellotron, resulting in an unusual setlist and the inclusion of two lengthy collective improvisations.
The liner notes to Live at Summit Studios were written by drummer Ian Wallace, who discusses the Denver show and chronicles his ...

All the below is nice to read, but here’s what you need to know: This previously lost soundboard cassette recording, which only emerged in late 2017, is the single best sounding live example of Jamie Muir’s short tenure with the band!

“It’s remarkable, from this distance in time, to imagine that a band with four chart albums (and an official live bootleg) in its history and the reputation such entailed, could embark on a UK tour, with a completely new line-up featuring just a...

This is a great sounding live release taken from a single night in the middle of the band's tour in November, 2015 from the surprising band reunion that gets nothing but very high marks from everyone who has seen it (they haven't come to my neck of the woods yet, so I am sadly not one of them!) and it's always nice to see new music from a seemingly fully engaged Robert Fripp and company! And it's a genuinely LIVE, live album!

Mel Collins: saxes & flute...
