Nurse With Wound List

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...

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 it was out of print on CD for a long time and quite rare for at least a decade. Then, for some reason, there was a legit lp version of it for a number of years and, then, finally, just a few years ago, there was a reprint of the CD and here it is.
Anyway, I shouldn't have to say much about this one, should I? After Trout Mask Replica, this is Don...

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')...

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...

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.

The one and only album by Chillum is actually the third and final album by Second Hand. Second Hand were having an audition for a guitarist and the tapes were rolling while he jammed with them. The music was determined to be good enough to release...

Until they imploded (which didn't take very long, actually), San Francisco's Chrome were a cool and punky blend of crazy sounds, noise, psychedelic guitar excess and raw energy, coming across like a mix of The Stooges and Hawkwind....

"Tracks recorded by Helios Creed and Damon Edge in '79 and '80, during the Half Machine Lip Moves and Third from the Sun period, but never released. About this era Helios recently wrote: 'We were into Iggy and the Stooges, and punk shows started...

"Apropos Cluster (1990) was released in Coralville, Iowa, in deepest provincial America. Youthful enthusiast Russ Curry (sic) set up the Curious Music label on his own initiative to release this very album. Emboldened by the spirit of the independent...

Cluster 71 is the first album by Cluster and the least known of their early clasics. It is reissued here with the original cover art in a digipack. It's been reissued a zillion times, but no matter which edition, it's a great release...

"Formed in Germany in 1971 when Hans-Joachim Roedelius and Dieter Moebius left Conrad Schnitzler's group Kluster, Cluster can be counted among the most important protagonists of the electronic avant-garde. Some credit them with having invented ambient music, others as pioneers of synthesizer pop, while to others they are firmly embedded in the Krautrock universe. There is some truth in all of these notions. Although Cluster and "rock music" are seldom mentioned in the same breath, their early works in...

So, so glad to see this classic German title reissued and available again!

This is the first of the 2 albums that the duo of Hans Joachim Roedelius & Didier Moebius recorded for the Brain label. From 1972, it uses primitive synthesizers, electronic junk, guitars, basses, homemade boxes & more to achieve a true and utter masterpiece of early electronic sound. I can not recommend this highly enough!

"After Curiosum, the last Cluster album to be released on Sky, Roedelius and Moebius turned their attention to solo work. It was not until the early 1990s that Cluster returned to the electronic music stage with Apropos Cluster and One Hour. The duo...

This is a document of two modestly well recorded shows by Cluster in a very early and later early prime: 1972 and 1977. Don't start here, but essential and quite worthwhile for fans.

The two authorized recordings presented on Konzerte 1972/1977 vividly conjure up the atmosphere, perhaps even the magic, of a Cluster performance back in the day. One took place in 1977 during a science fiction festival in Metz (France). The other dates back to an earlier show in Hamburg's Fabrik venue. Cluster...

"Cluster's hiatus between Curiosum and Apropos Cluster in 1990 lasted for almost 10 years. Roedelius and Moebius spent this time developing their individual musical characteristics in a series of solo albums and collaborations which they released with...

Originally released in 1976 and their last as a duo before recording their two famous albums with Brian Eno, this has been relatively difficult to find for some time until now.

"The fourth full-length album by legendary German electronic music duo Cluster, originally released on Sky Records in 1976. Sowiesoso follows on from their most highly-acclaimed album, Zuckerzeit (1974). Michael Rother's influence was clearly audible on the latter, Cluster already having recorded two albums with him under..

These shows from Cluster's 1996 US tour are shockingly great and up to par! Recommended if you don't already have these recordings!

"This release consists of tracks from Purple Pyramid's 1997 CD First Encounter Tour 1996, reworked and reselected.

Nice to have this classic spacey/ambient album generally available again. This was the first collaboration, recorded when Eno's star was at its zenith, between him and the great German electronic duo. I remember my first record store job, around 1978...

Recorded live in 97,this is a new release by Marian Vargas well known classical rock trio, that is totally in keeping with their 70s sound; no digital drum updates, no unwanted pop songs. This is the real deal! Performed solely on Hammond organ, with b...

Reissues a 1981 double. Varga has added a lot of additional keyboards, & the sound is less straight-forward classical rock. Pretty good, but not the best by this band. [Bonton]

Originally released on Ultima Spiaggia in 1976, this was the first of two brilliant albums this composer and keyboardist released.

The minimal masterpiece and always the rarest Faust artifact from the 70s. A fantastic work. Hugely recommended to fans of minimalism.

"Violinist, composer and filmmaker Tony Conrad started his career in New York in the early 1960s. As a member of the Theater of Eternal Music (a.k.a. the Dream Syndicate) alongside John Cale, La Monte Young, Marian Zazeela and Angus MacLise, he participated in now-legendary and often legendarily loud drone performances with many pieces having no beginning and no...

This is a heavy one, with a lot of metallic edges mixed with the acoustic elements. Not really reminiscent of King Crimson in any way to my ears, but a good album.

"'Sign of the Crow' is the eagerly awaited 6th studio album from the David Cross Band featuring ex-King Crimson violinist David Cross with Jinian Wilde (voice), Paul Clark (guitar), Alex Hall (keyboards) Mick Paul (bass) and Craig Blundell (drums). Progressive rock at its very best."

"Two members of the groundbreaking mid 1970s King Crimson line-up unite on a fascinating album length exploration of a melody - composed by David Cross and Robert Fripp - that emerged as one of the key themes on the King Crimson masterpiece, Starless...

Early German jazz and beyond supersession, recorded in 1967 for SABA, who eventually went bust and reappeared as MPS. Wolfgang Dauner-piano, prepared piano, Jean-Luc Ponty-violin, Gerd Dudek-tenor sax, clarinet, Eberhard Weber-cello, Jürgen Karg-bass...

This is the first time that this long unavailable album, originally released in 1972 has been released on CD. It's really quite a supergroup of (mostly German) jazz and jazz/rock personnel: Wolfgang Dauner-keyboards, electronics, Larry Coryell-guitar...

Gatefold, legit reissue of an album recorded in 1969 and originally released by Wolfgang himself in 1970 and then later licensed to and released by Brain in 1972!
The band is:
Wolfgang Dauner-piano, organ, flute
Siegfried Schwabb-guitar
Eberhard Weber-bass, cello
Fred Braceful & Roland Wittich-drums

Proto-kozmigroov, with major psychedelic and soulful moves and great, grooving, double-drumming! Comparable to, and absolutely as good as Brian Auger's work of the same era.

"They were exciting years, when Miles Davis used to drive through New York in an open sports car listening to Stockhausen's tape manipulations, and when Kraftwerk and Can in Düsseldorf and Cologne developed their own special style of Kraut rock. Experimentation with electronic music, and research into all its possibilities, were very exciting, but could be extremely frustrating too, especially under live conditions. "There were no instructions, no one who could help you to find the different sounds and...

Nice, mostly mellow improvised session by Elton, Hugh, Vince (drums) and Frances (keyboards - mostly piano, but even accordion at times). Not an earth-shaking release, but if you are a fan of Elton or Hugh's work (or even Vince and Frances), you will...

Begun as an Italian jazz rock band in the '70s featuring Fiorenzo Michele Bonansone (keyboards, cello, vocals), Marco Di Castri (guitar, sax), Furio Di Castri (bass) and Enrico Grosso (drums), Dedalus released two albums in 1973 and 1974.

In 2003 Bonansone decided to revive the spirit of Dedalus. Assisted by two classical musicians and a drummer with a thing for funky and African rhythms, he released "Nomos Apache Alpha" as the Bonansone Dedalus Group.

'A prog rock tribute with punch'-John Fordham, The Guardian

"Moritz R®, Kurt Dahlke aka Pyrolator, and Frank Fenstermacher have met in the studio after 25 years and recorded a new album. One can claim that Der Plan was one of the most powerful German bands during the time of musical departure at the beginning of the 1980s. Der Plan was always more than a band: a kind of three-headed Renaissance man, for whom visual art was just as important as music.
The Ata Tak label, founded by the three members, was one of the first continental European indie labels and...
