“A Mountain Doesn't Know It's Tall. The title reflects the mood of this duo record of Fred Frith and Ikue Mori – playful, poetic, mysterious and open. The guitarist and the sound-artist have been working together for forty years. Live excerpts from their work are documented on Fred Frith's 3 CD box set Live at the Stone.

Great, great album and new, lower price as well!
Keep The Dog was Fred's all-star, late 1980's/early 1990's touring band, which played all over Europe and beyond, but strangely never released anything until 15 years later! The band at the time of these recordings consisted of
Jean Derome (saxes, flute, voice)
Fred Frith (guitar, bass, violin, voice)
Charles Hayward (drums, voice)
Rene Lussier (guitar, bass)
Bob Ostertag (sampler)

“The first collaboration (and for sure not the last one...) between Fred Frith and Susana Santos Silva, recorded live on August 27th 2021 at Motoco, Mulhouse, France.”

“The long-awaited follow up to their first release on Derek Bailey's Incus label and a kind of prequel, going back to the time when Fred was playing home-made instruments and John was using mouthpieces and duck-calls as much or more than alto sax; this was back in the New York glory days when 100 new ideas popped up somewhere every day, and these performances lie right at the fringe of what most people would accept as "music".
Anyone wanting to get back to one of the roots of what later became known..

Edgar Froese was and is the leader of Tangerine Dream. His solo albums during the 70s are different from but just as good as TD's work.

“Free music is free. It is the opposite of traditional, conventional music bound by various rules or by any kind of metric, tonal, harmonic, melodic, rhythmic, social or other system, as well as music that is beholden, restricted, schooled or unfree. In short, it's the opposite of any music we've known before. In free...

“A duo by Osamu Kitajima and Fumio Miyashita, formed at the end of 1971 when Osamu Kitajima returned from his trip to United Kingdom where he got influenced by the exploding psychedelic rock scene that was happening at the time.
After recording his debut under moniker of 'Justin Heathcliff', he got together with Fumio Miyashita of FAR EAST FAMILY BAND and FAR OUT. Together they worked on an amazing psychedelic / progressive rock album, with a folky, yet pastoral, mellow approach.” ...

“In 1969, I was commissioned to make all the music and organized noises for nineteen looped films to be run in the British Pavilion at Expo 70 in Osaka, Japan. The overall concept was to have all the films running in fixed positions so that the individual visitors would ‘mix’ their audio and visual experience by the speed and direction of their movement through and around the environment.

“Sublime, unique, sexy, and peculiar unreleased scores by electronic and jazz pioneer Ron Geesin, made for the films by maverick director Stephen Dwoskin.
Geesin made great music and worked with Pink Floyd. Dwoskin made odd films, most of them are in the BFI permanent collection. These superb unreleased soundtracks come from a fascinating, progressive, and important period in British film history. They represent an intriguing collaboration between the lively Ron Geesin from Scotland and the American..

A lost relic of the late days of the initial burst of American minimalism found and presented to the world! "Jon Gibson (b. 1940) is one of the less frequently mentioned pioneering composers of minimal music and is probably best known as a founding member of the Philip Glass Ensemble. Gibson also holds the unique distinction of having performed with Steve Reich, Terry Riley, and La Monte Young (as a member of the Theatre of Eternal Music), in addition to Glass, the four composers widely regarded as the...

"Editions Mego's 250th release continues its ongoing legacy of cross-pollinating and perverting various threads of radical 20th century music whilst concocting and propelling further ideas into the nebulous region where we all currently reside. With Ex Nihilo, Editions Mego resumes its enduring relationship with long-term collaborator and stalwart representative of the label's aesthetic with a new release from London's most charming deviant occupant, Bruce Gilbert (formerly of Wire, Dome, etc.)....

“Souffle Continu Records present the first vinyl reissue of Jef Gilson's Le Massacre Du Printemps, originally released in 1971. In 1971, the day after the death of Igor Stravinsky, Jef Gilson, and his Unit (Pierre Moret and Jean-Claude Pourtier) made this curious homage to classical music. It is jazz, contemporary, and electroacoustic music that the trio interrogate through a wild "noise" session evoking as much John Cage as Pierre Henry, John Coltrane as the Percussions de Strasbourg, the Art Ensemble...

One of the progressive hard rock classics of the early 70s German scene, this was the 2nd and final release by this German band, originally released on Brain in 1972. Reissued over 15 years ago for the 1st time, that reissue has been out of print for...

This beautiful, legit reissue includes a gatefold sleeve!
This album has an interesting history and is sort of the band's 1st and 2nd album simultaneously.
Trauma was originally recorded and released in 1970, but the band was unhappy with the work and soon after re-worked and re-recorded the album with English lyrics and a harder 'progressive hard rock' sound with nice organ and guitar work.
This album is best known for the 13' title track, which is a heavy, psychedelic mix of Guru Guru and...

“Gong’s 2nd album for Virgin Records has been remastered from the original Virgin masters for the very first time by the original producer, Simon Heyworth, and has been expanded with a previously unreleased concert recorded in Roanne, France on 17th August 1973 plus the single version of “Other Side Of The Sky” and 3 rare out-takes.”

The middle disc of the Radio Gnome trilogy and filled with classics. The band is Daevid Allen-guitar/vocals/glissando guitar, Gilli Smyth-vocals, Steve Hillage- guitar, Tim Blake-synths, Didier Malherbe-saxes, Mike Howlett-bass & Pierre Moerlin-drums...

This was the second Gong release and the first one that actually sounds like Gong-the-band soundtrack for the film "Continental Circus" by Jérôme Laperrousaz.
The band is:

“Gong’s debut album for Virgin Records has been issued for the very first time from the original Virgin masters and remastered by the original producer, Simon Heyworth, and has been expanded with a previously unreleased concert recorded at The Bataclan in Paris in May 1973 plus 5 rare out-takes.”

The first of the Radio Gnome trilogy, which for many people stands as Daevid's crowning achievement. A great version of the band:

The 2nd post-Daevid Allen release by Gong, and I think most people would agree that it is the best of them. A fantastic album of mallet-percussion driven fusion, headed by an amazing all-star cast: Mireille Bauer/Benoit Moerlin-vibes/marimba, Mino Cinelou-percussion, Allan Holdsworth-guitar (one of his classic 70's performances), Didier Malherbe-sax & flute, Pierre Moerlin-drums & percussion and Francis Moze-fretless bass. Highly recommended.

Being a humongous fan of Gong in high school and discovering them just about the time that Daevid left and they imploded, my sorrow was great. But only a couple of years after they broke up they had the first (of what would be many, many) reunion, but this one was special as it featured the entirety of the 'classic' line up of the band that recorded Angel's Egg and You, which were keystone records of my listening at that time. Being a twerp kid and this being before the instantaneous internet told you...

No, this isn't the reunion show album, this is a compilation of 14 tracks taken from prime-period Daevid Allen-led Gong, from Camembert Electrique through Flying Teapot, Angel's Egg and You. Stupid cheap price if you want to sample this great 70s...

Daevid wanted it to happen, so, yes. It should.

“Following the passing of visionary & founding member, Daevid Allen, whose importance was celebrated on 2016's 'Rejoice! I'm Dead!' album & the forging of their own creative vision on 2019's 'The Universe Also Collapses', Gong continue their upward trajectory in 2023 with 'Unending Ascending'.
The album is a return to relatively shorter songs, an eclectic eight-song cycle that forms a pan-galactic suite, veering between the ecstatic, apocalyptic, meditative & catchy, often within the same song.”

The first 'Gong' album is really an early Daevid & Gilli album from 1969, after they were forced to leave England, & settled in Paris. Kinda folky/psychedelic in a genuine 1969 way. You can hear the embryonic Gong sound here and a lot more as well.

“Excellent debut album from Gilli Smyth's San Francisco based band This is very good indeed, my basic belief that all the Gongsters are currently producing some of the best work of their careers is completely reinforced by this release.
Gilli of course has long been the mistress of spoken delivery, and her inflection and timing just get better and better, as it should. It's a skill or craft, just like playing any instrument, and she has been practising it for a long time - this is her at the top of...
