John Cage: Duet for Cymbal (from Cartridge Music, 1960) (19:17)
Christian Wolff: for 1, 2 or 3 people (23:36)
John Cage: Variations IV (31:46)
"Recorded by KPFA Radio on the 39th birthday of David Tudor, this historic concert with John Cage thundered through the halls of the sculpture court of the San Francisco Museum of Art before a capacity audience that included the late Darius Milhaud in his wheelchair and other Bay Area arts dignitaries. The volume levels were raucus and the medium of ..

"This double-CD set combines two of the key titles of Columbia Records’s legendary “Music of Our Time” series curated by David Behrman. Jeanne Kirstein’s recording of Cage’s early keyboard works remains a touchstone of Cagean interpretation...

Great set of two of John's performance on Rockpalast in 1984 (with his band) and 1983 (solo).

"Even today, JOHN CALE is renowned for having been a member of the Velvet Underground alongside Lou Reed, Maureen Tucker and Sterling Morrison...

John Cale's 2nd solo album, from 1972, and his first of two classics on Reprise (Paris 1919 followed next year), this is a odd, completely NON-pop release with strong elements of 20th century classical music and organized sound. Quite radical for 1972,...

Great to see this long unavailable underground rock/new music classic available again, after a long period of unavailability. When I was in High School and first bombarding myself with the 'secrets' of weirdo music, this 1970 recording brought together...

The Camberwell Now were led by Charles Hayward, the drumminng/vocalist mastermind behind This Heat, and was the band that he formed immediately after This Heat broke up. They were released an album and 2 EPs in their lifetime, and this includes all of...

"A double CD of 29 classic Can tracks (all remastered); serves as the perfect introduction to the legendary German musical pioneers."

Very early recordings, including some of their very first, all featuring Malcolm Mooney. While this is more of historical interest than being one of their greats, there is some really good stuff here, and this is a no-brainer for fans.

Recorded in 1972, this is one of my personal favorites by the band, as there is a bit more 'groove' in the playing (and drummer Jaki was always one of the great groove drummers ever).

"The follow-up to Tago Mago is only lesser in terms of being shorter; otherwise the Can collective delivers its expected musical recombination act with the usual power and ability. Liebezeit, at once minimalist and utterly funky, provides another base of key beat action for everyone to go off on -- from the buried...

"Originally issued in 1976. Flow Motion (1976) saw Can moving towards a somewhat more conventional style as their recording technology improved. 'I Want More' from Flow Motion became their only hit record outside Germany including an appearance on UK's...

There are a bunch of great Can albums, but this is *the* one for me. A timeless, beautiful, groove-classic. Glad to see that Jason agrees, and while I had never mentally articulated the 'oceantic' feel he mentions below, he's spot on, and I thank him for saying it for me!

"Damo Suzuki's final effort is Can's most atmospheric and beautiful record, a spartan collection of lengthy, jazz-like compositions recorded with minimal vocal contributions. Employing keyboard washes to create a breezy, almost oce

Recorded in 1968-1969 and released in 1969, this really is an album that was ahead of its time...

"Can's debut is the only full-length, proper release to feature original vocalist Malcolm Mooney, whose free-form ranting is matched by a raw...

Much to the shock of everyone (probably even themselves), Can reformed wih their original line-up (Holger, Jaki, Michael, Irmin and Malcolm Mooney!) for a single album in 1986. They even made a high profile appearance on Germany TV, which I saw! It's a...

1974 album, and their first without a dedicated singer finds the band regrouping. The sound is somewhat similar to the brilliant Future Days from the previous year, and while it doesn't reach nearly the same heights, it is still a really good album...

Recorded in 1970, and actually consisting of film soundtracks for arty films (none of which I've ever seen surfacing anywhere!), this finds the band in transition, with some tracks featuring original vocalist Malcolm Mooney and some featuring new...

The band's third album, which was originally a double album and which was originally released in 1971 is considered one of their greatest works. This was the 1st album to soley feature Damo Suzuki as the vocalist and he makes his presence felt here strongly. One of the greats by one of the greats!

"Tago Mago, the first album with Damo Suzuki on vocals, features the Can line up of Holger Czukay on bass, Michael Karoli on guitars, Jaki Liebezeit on drums and Irmin Schmidt on keyboards, and was...

This is an amazing archival find: 3 discs of previously unreleased material from the prime period of the band's existence: 1968-1977!

Originally released in 1976 as a double album of unreleased studio material, it all fits here on this single CD, giving you a good, all unreleased material overview of their work from 1968-1975. Lots of work featuring Damo or Malcolm. No one ever seems...

One and only album by this Italian classical rock band with tons of heavy organ and fuzzed out guitars. Great cover artwork! This is the remastered version with 4 extra bonus tracks taken from their earlier singles, but, even remastered, the sound of t...

One and only album by this Italian classical rock band with tons of heavy organ and fuzzed out guitars. Great cover artwork!

Sound on the 50' live show from 1981 is quite good for a 30 year old radio broadcast. The rest is pretty awful sounding.
So, this is:

This is pretty exploitative and horrible, but, still, some of you may not have this material and some of it is great. You get 'Electricity' and 'Sure Nuff 'n' Yes I Do' from Cannes, 1967, I'm Gonna Booglarize You from Beat Club (which is available...

These sort of 'unauthorized critical analysis' DVDs are mostly really vile, and this one is sort of too, but Don Vleit is such an important musical figure (sez I) and the true story/history has been shrouded in myth for so long that this is actually wo...

"When it comes to musical eccentricity, no one has ever come close to the often strange and sometimes downright weird sonic achievements of the loosely connected Frank Vincent Zappa and Don Van Vliet. The fact that this pair of unconventional musicians...

The final Beefheart album from 1982 from a version of the band who never performed a concert and which has a more stripped down sound (just 2 guitars, bass and drums).
Not my favorite of his works, but still fairly indispensable, when you are speaking of one of the most significant musicians of the latter half of the 20th century!
Includes one track not on the original albums and a nice essay by fan and expert Mike Barnes.

This bootleg is simultaneously much more and much less than it appears to be.

First the good news: The opening 9 tracks are from the Avalon Ballroon, 1966. 4 of these tracks: Tupelo, Somebody In My Home, Evil, Old Folk's Boogie all appeared on...

While they last, this is over 40% off the regular price!

First the good news: The opening 9 tracks are from the Avalon Ballroon, 1966. 4 of these tracks: Tupelo, Somebody In My Home, Evil, Old Folk's Boogie all appeared on the now out of print, incredible Revenant set, Grow Fins, but the other 5 tracks have long been known to exist, but have never been seen or heard before: Down In The Bottom, Don't Start Me To Talkin', The Sun Is Shinin', St. James Infirmary, Harp....

This is a nicely remastered reissue of the very first album by Captain Beefheart, which was originally released on Buddha in 1967. Also included are 7 bonus tracks from the unreleased second album from the Mirror Man sessions that were later re-recorded and used on Strictly Personal.

"With [Ry} Cooder supervising the music, the sessions proceeded more or less smoothly...Overall the music is still blues-based and almost commercial, but several of the cuts point to future directions, especially...

"I got the new MONO reissue of the SAFE AS MILK album and it sounds incredible - so much better than the stereo mix. Much more tough-sounding - really worth getting."-Henry Kaiser (from a private email that I hope he won't mind me sharing too much!)...

This is a nicely remastered reissue of the second album by Captain Beefheart to be recorded, in 1967, but which was not released until at least 5-6 years later, with misleading dates and information (no, it was not recorded at a band rehearsal one night in 1965, thank you very much!). Also included are 5 tracks from the unreleased second album from the Mirror Man sessions that were later re-recorded and used on Strictly Personal. Hence the name change to The Mirror Man sessions, as this comes as close...

This was the next to last Beefheart album and is a very good late period one. This is the version of the band that toured the heaviest and even appeared on Saturday Night Live in the late 70's! Some great stuff on this one.

This was the next to last Beefheart album and is an excellent late period one.
This is the version of the band that toured the heaviest - I saw them 12/2/80 on their final tour and they were excellent - and even appeared on Saturday Night Live in the late 70's! Some great stuff on this one.
Includes a nice essay by fan and expert Mike Barnes.

I've never understood what the problem is with the availability of this album; it was issued legitimately on CD and was available for a few years and then went out of print and was quite rare for at least a decade and a half.

But now, FINALLY, it is reissued and available again!

Anyway, I shouldn't have to say much about this one, should I? After Trout Mask, this is Don and band's stunning achievement and it's very similar and also utterly different. Unlike TMR, no one ever listened to...

The 1st of the 3 albums Don made when he "came back" from the wilderness after the Tragic Band debacle in the mid 70's. With John French, Bruce Fowler, Eric Drew Feldman, Jeff Morris Tepper, Art Tripp & others!

A great price on this title, that usually sells for at least 50% more (check Amazon.com & see). This was the 3rd album recorded by Don & crew, but the 2nd to be released (after the much more significantly 'straighter' Safe As Milk from 1967). This 1968...

Pretty good sounding audience recording of the 3rd to the last performance by The Magic Band.

"autumn 1980 through january 1981 captain beefheart and the magic band promoted their latest album, doc at the radar station, with a tour in europe and the states. however, as don hadn't performed live for well over a year and a half, it took a while before he found the right groove. after a terrible first week, the group came into shape (also because last-minute member richard snyder 'fell in place')...

Yes, this is really only $7.00 now. While our limited supply lasts! Any and every Captain Beefheart fan should own this at this price. Period.

ATTENTION! ATTENTION! Unbelievable ARCHIVAL TREASURE alert! This 30' long DVD contains every scrap of material that exists in the archives of Beat Club/Radio Bremen, from the Magic Band's April 12, 1972 performance, which resulted only in one song ever broadcast - no one ever saw the remaining 25' or even suspected that anything else existed!...

The last 2 album by the original Magic Band. T.S.K. has long been one of my favorites, even though the band apparently hates it - bluesy & languid, while C.S. serves up some of his best loved pieces. Now o/p in the US & a great price on 2 lps complete ...

So, there is all this bullshit and fake obscurity about The Residents. We all know that.
Charles Bobuck is a fake name for (I think) Hardy Fox, who was one of the original Residents, but left sometime in the 80s.
This is him performing some of those tunes today.
Note: we list this under “C” just like we list Jethro Tull under “J” and Muddy Waters under “M”; it isn’t his name.

“New arrangement and new vocals crack open altered interpretations of favorite Residents standards. Charles.
