This is a repackaging of disc two - one of the discs of great stuff from the now long out of print Grow Fins box set, so it's utterly worthless if you own that and really good and worthwhile (and quite good sounding for 50 year old unreleased recordings) if you don't!

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...

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 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.

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...

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!

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 album was the first album to feature the 'real' Beefheart sound as we would all get to know it soon enough! The band is: Don-vocals & harp, Jeff Cotton & Alex St. Claire-guitars, Jerry Handley-bass & John 'Drumbo' French-drums.

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')...

The last 2 albums by the original Magic Band. The Spotlight Kid has long been one of my favorites, even though the band apparently hates it - bluesy & languid, while Clear Spot serves up some of his best-loved pieces.
A wonderful deal here.

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.

Charles Bobuck is Hardy Fox, who was one of the original Residents, but left sometime in the 80s. Now Hardy is releasing album (good ones!) under the name Charles Bobuck. Why? Dunno.

The first release (and sadly the only one) by this improvising group of established figures from the creative rock and improvised music scene in Britain. They've been together for a few years now, plays shows when circumstances permit, and it's great that they've finally documented something. This pretty quickly finds its feet, finds a groove and keeps.

"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...

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...

Excellent final release by the pioneers of electronic music in Germany. These two musicians are old enough to be your father or grandfather, yet here they are making new, interesting, cutting-edge music.

“The first ever reissue of Jean Cohen-Solal's Flûtes Libres, originally released in 1972. In a dreamlike fictive and windswept Brittany, hippy pirates and wild women more or less inspired by Gérard de Nerval fight it out in a theater, the magic of which brings to mind Cocteau, and where musical improvisation has an important role: this is Noroît, a cursed film which was never released in cinemas at the time (1976), directed by the great Jacques Rivette, where Jean-Cohen-Solal, his brother Robert and...

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]

Not your typical Italian progressive rock CD, this is pretty much unknown and definitely a BIG winner. A huge instrumentation consisting of guitars, bass, drums, percussion, xylophone, keyboards, trombones, trumpets, tuba, clarinets, saxes, flutes, string quartet and vocalists is used as needed. Highly recommended!
