"In 200041 after the invention of the turntable, the men are are made beautiful, They have disappeared body and goods leaving behind them only souls and angels. Fortunately, there are the industrial robots whose role and reason will be to replay forever the great..

This was a 1987 album and is the beginning of the band's heavy electronic influenced period. But a goodly amount of the acoustic instruments still remain; not a classic but still really good. The band is Patricia Dallio-pianos, keyboards, Gerard Hourbe...

Back in print and available for $12.00 less than before! "13 unpublished works combining electronic music and acoustic instruments. Includes pieces by Ryoji Ikeda, Horatiu Radelescu, David Shea, Jean-luc Fafchamps, Gerard Hourbette, Jean-Paul Dessy...

2011 soundtrack to the well known silent film.


One of the original R.I.O. groups. A mid 80's release that showcases their growing interest in electronics & in working with other artforms [dance, theatre, film]. With Theirry Zaboitzeff, Gerard Hourbette, Patricia Dallio, Daniel Denis. [In-Possible]

I will sum up all the stuff I say below in a few words: If you don't already own this, buy it. Period.

Art Zoyd's early and great works have been unavailable for such a long time that it's too easy to forget what a strikingly original and...

The latest from Art Zoyd is this double set in a handsome digi-pack that includes the 1:48' soundtrack to Fritz Lang's famous silent film, plus 2 additional tracks that make this CD weigh in at over 2 and a half hours of music. The current band feature...

Great to have this wonderful, classic and important RIO/avant-progressive title back and generally available.

Art Zoyd's early and great works have been unavailable for such a long time that it's too easy to forget what a strikingly original...

Newly reissued & remastered in 2002 on the band's own label. One of the original R.I.O. groups, later adding minimalism & electronics. This is one of their first albums that showcased their growing interest in electronics & in working with other artfor...

Possibly the only band to release two box sets in a row (small joke), this is a 2018 release.
The music is composed by: Gérard Hourbette with Jérôme Soudan and Kasper T. Toeplitz and is usually performed by five musicians on keyboards, samplers, pads & electronics. Most of the records are of quite short pieces, but a few pieces stretch towards the 8 and 9 minute mark.
It extends the electronic / soundtracky stylings of their last decade of work and could properly fit into the sound of today's...

Latest from AZ is this LARGE scale work for the band (Mireille Bauer, Patricia Dallio, Daniel Denis, GErard Hourbette & Emma Stephenson Poli) plus a ''orchestra'' of 13 guitars, 3 basses, 6 saxes, 4 trumpets, 3 trombones, tuba & 11 drums. Composed by G...

This is a 2017 release of a 1998 live recording.

The Artchipel Orchestra, led by conductor / arranger Ferdinando Farao, is a Italian big band (with 25 participants on this album) and Ferdinando is a big fan of the British jazz and jazz rock scene of the 70s, having previously covered tunes by Hugh Hopper, Alan Gowen, Robert Wyatt, Dave Stewart, Mike Westbrook & Fred Frith, among others.
For this, their third album, he has chosen to highlight the compositions of the late Lindsay Cooper. They band perform:
1. Half The Sky (from "Western Culture").

"Cold Waters is the result of a very short yet intense meeting between Jean-Hervé Péron (Faust) and Amaury Cambuzat (Ulan Bator). The duo met in the French countryside at Carina’s silk mill: two days, two mics, two friends and a dog…from hilarious to...

The incredible first album by this legendary Krautrock ensemble, remastered by Manuel Göttsching himself!
The incredible power trio (guitar, bass, drums) first effort from 1971 by Germany's Ash Ra Tempel has Manuel Gottsching (guitar), Harmut Enke (bass) and Klaus Schulze (drums - this is before he became a space music pioneer!). Great, over-the-top, psychedelic power rock.

"After a couple of aborted demo's Ash Ra Tempel decided to go to Hamburg and record an album proper, with the aid of...

This was originally recorded and released in 2000 and was one of two efforts by 'Ash Ra Tempel", which is the meeting again after quite some time of Klaus Schulze and Manuel Gottsching.

This one was always hard to find and while it isn't...

The very good, if somewhat overlooked fourth album by this legendary Krautrock ensemble, remastered by Manuel Göttsching himself!

The band's fourth album, this is the first time since their self-titled first that you have the trio of Manuel...

Back in print after at least a decade of unavailability. This is a previously unreleased 1975 album, issued for the first time in the mid 1990's as a film soundtrack. For that reason, it's definitely not one of the classics, but it is still really good overall.

"In 1975 I was doing a series of concerts in France with Lutz Ulbrich, where we were presenting 'Inventions for Electric Guitar' and other compositions, which we developed together that year. In August, we were invited for two concerts in...

The second album by this legendary Krautrock ensemble, remastered by Manuel Göttsching himself!

Their 2nd album came out in 1972, & was quite a bit different from the first, as Klaus Schulze had split. So Manuel & Harmut enlisted some other...

The fairly insane third album where Timothy Leary, on the run from the Feds, ends up in Switzerland surrounded by happy hippies. Remastered by Manuel Göttsching himself!

Their third album was named after the LSD-laced soft drink that these guys..

The fifth album by this legendary Krautrock ensemble, remastered by Manuel Göttsching himself!

"The dubious reputation Starring Rosi has incurred over the years is, to these set of ears, altogether undeserved. The tightening of focus and....

This is a CLASSIC and was where I discovered the wonders of Manuel Gottsching!
The sixth album by Ash Ra Tempel, this was actually Manuel Gottsching's first solo album. Recorded at home with a Teac 4 track, & released in 1974, it's an absolute classic of echo'd, multi-tracked guitar trance/space-out wizardry. Three long, appropriately named tracks ("Echo Waves," "Quasarsphere," "Pluralis"). This belongs in the collection of anyone interested in space or trance music.

"Manuel played his...

"2015 live recording from the Supersense Festival in Melbourne, previously unreleased, featuring a supergroup of Manuel Göttsching, Ariel Pink, Oren Ambarchi, and Shags Chamberlain playing material from classic Ash Ra Tempel releases, 1972's Schwingungen (and 1973's Seven Up."

"Out of the blue -- I was invited to perform in Melbourne, Australia. It happened thanks to my dear old friend Mick Glossop, who made the suggestion to Sophia Brous, at the time the curator of a music-festival called...

Or, as that hipster Manuel has it on the cover, @shra...anyway, this is a pretty obscure release and is also a very good one from 1998 that hasn't been available in a long time. Grab it or regret it!

"Recorded during the first Japanese tour of the band in Osaka and Tokyo in February 1997, this double album is a rare document of the late Ashra with Manuel Gottsching, Lutz Ulbrich, Harald Grosskopf with the new signing Steve Baltes, who has since been in Goettsching's band . A perfectly oiled blend...

Totally professional, multi-camera live performance from June 8, 2012 in Berlin of Manuel Gottsching (guitar & keyboard), Harald Grosskopf (drums) and Steve Baltes (electronics) performing pieces from the albums Blackouts and Correlations.

This album, recorded in Berlin, and originally released in 1977 on Virgin, marks the first time Manuel Gottsching used the name Ashra (as opposed to Ash Ra Tempel). This was also possibly the first time that the term "new age" was used on a record! It'...

While it's pretty certain that Miles kick started the whole electric jazz-jazz/rock movement with In A Silent Way and Bitches Brew in 1969, there were other people working towards the same goals at aproximately the same time, some of them better known...

This 2-CD set features three live concerts recorded by the BBC in 1972, 1975 and 1976. The '75 and '76 concerts have never been released before in any form, while the 1972 show was available several years ago but since deleted. The first CD features the classic Whole World" band with Mike Oldfield on guitar whilst the second disc has ex-Police guitarist Andy Summers. The 8-page booklet includes extensive liner notes with an introduction by Kevin Ayers, full recording details and photographs...

"A reissue of Derek Bailey's Lot 74, originally released by Incus in 1974. Recorded at a private house in West London, the side-long title track is a masterwork: a twenty-two-minute, starkly personal, freely expressive, itchily searching re-casting of orders of rhythm and sound into a new, quicksilver kind of affective and musical polyphony. Never mind the guitarist's championing of "non-idiomatic improvisation", the poet Peter Riley gets the ball rolling in his identification of the various hauntings...

"A reissue of Derek Bailey and Tristan Honsinger Duo, originally released by Incus in 1976. Born in Burlington, Vermont, and conservatory-trained in the US, the cellist Tristan Honsinger moved from Montreal to Amsterdam in 1974, quickly linking with Han Bennink and Misha Mengelberg and opening a long and fruitful musical relationship with Derek Bailey. Recorded in 1976, Duo displays a performative musical approach already characterized by the lack of inhibition which would later endear him to The Pop...

This is a reunion album by original members of Il Balletto, the members who made their 1st album Sirio 2222.

Like that album, this has many psychedelic and even 60s rock influences, along with progressive hard rock and early proto-progressive elements.

Loud guitars, a rocking rhythm section and keyboards, along with vocals certainly influenced by 60s groups from beat groups onward and including guest vocals and keyboards by Gianni Leone!

Il Balletto di Bronzo are (rightly) remembered for making YS, one of the truly great 'one and done' albums of the Italian progressive rock movement of the early 1970s. This album consists of the demo tape - a primitive, 4-track recording, but...

New, digi-pack issue made from the tapes, of this well known group's debut album that isn't the one they are famous for, but is still a good one, for what it is.

"That is a plain warning for everyone out there that this 1970 debut by...

Ys, the 2nd & last album by IBDB, is one of the most loved 70's Italian progressive rock releases. It is a classical rock classic that has seldom been equaled, with great soaring vocals, terrific, heavy Hammond organ playing, a creepy atmosphere, and...

"Franco Battiato was an Italian pop singer who for a span in the 70s made a string of very experimental albums that fit very roughly in the vein of groups such as Opus Avantra or Pierrot Lunaire.
Battiato on all of these titles (and beyond) set out to create completely new musical forms, and evolved from strange pop and rock realms to systemic and minamalist music before returning to pop music."-Expose/Mike McLatchey.

"Franco Battiato is often heralded as Italy’s answer to Brian Eno. A quizzical composer / lyricist, Battiato turned pop music upside down in the early ‘70s with three classic LPs—Fetus, Pollution and Sulle Corde Di Aries—that formed a confluence of avant-folk sensibilities and analog electronics.

Originally released in 1971 on Bla Bla, Fetus predated the prodigious Cramps and Multhipla catalogues to become one of the first electronic records produced in Italy. With his trusted VCS3 synthesizer..

Battiato's music can jump from neo classical to Italian progressive rock (somewhere between Sensations Fix and Le Orme) to space rock like Gong and on to bizarre tape collages with narration. It all adds up to a fascinating and innovative album with mo...

Pollution from 1972 is the captivating follow-up to Fetus. Like its predecessor, the album features Baroque textures, motorik rhythms, weird tape effects and Battiato’s perfectly oblique vocals. Upon he

"Sulle Corde Di Aries was Battiato's third release and showed his fascination for electronic, minimalist and systemic musics. As such, it is quite similar to Pollution except much more electronic based and with a more definitive style. There are also a lot of modern classical strains coming through here and a great spacey feel again reminding me of Sensations Fix or Gong at times. A simply fascinating album."-Expose/Mike McLatchey.

1973’s Sulle Corde Di Aries is the third chapter in Battiato’s foray into esoteric pop. While the artist would venture further out into avant-garde terrain on subsequent releases, his early records...

Just in time for the reissues of "Romance '76" and "Trans Harmonic Nights" comes the first new music from Peter in something like 20 years! And it's good, capturing the sort of 'spare but still Berlin-school' vibe of his early classics!

"In October 2014 an idea suddenly came to mind. Although I had spent much of my life performing, recording and producing music, my attention over the immediately preceding years had been focused on the philosophy and psychology of human nature. It was a rewarding...

An important, long-time and key member of Tangerine Dream, Peter Baumann was with the group through mostl of their most important work.
This was his second solo album and was released not too long after he left Tangerine Dream. It's a fine work and it has been unavailable on CD for nearly 20 years.

"Peter Baumann's second recording does not fail to send one to new worlds both inner and outer and anyone familiar with his music will play it over and over. In my opinion Tangerine Dream never...
