Nurse With Wound List

This is the 1st of two collaborative albums that paired Hugh the composer with vocalist Lisa. Both of the albums they made are pretty good with Lisa's lyrics and vocals set against Hugh's compositions and programming. Also appearing are Hugh on fuzz...

This is the third of a ten part series compiled by Mike King. He's enlisted Hugh's personal archive, as well as the archives of friends of Hugh's. Mike says, "I've been tasked with compiling a series of CD releases celebrating the life and legacy of...

This is the ninth of a ten part series compiled by the late Mike King. This is five edited versions of Facelift, performed by Soft Machine, presented in varying sonic quality (although all are at least decently listenable for insane fans, said the insane fan). They are hard edited to play into each other.

"Hugh Hopper is ever the surprising chap, always trying new, different musical avenues. Here he's having a go with that atmospheric kind of ECM type jazzy thing, where nimble creation and diversion, mix and clash, with instrumental textures and breezy...

In the early/mid 00s, Hugh started working with his computer and started cutting up and putting together music in the new technological version of how he did it starting in 1963, when Daevid Allen showed him what a tape loop was. He made two full...

The second of two albums made by Kramer (who was still riding high with his Shimmy-Disc label as well as with his release by Bongwater), Hugh Hopper and Damon Krukowski (of Galaxie 500 and Damon and Naomi) on drums. 1997-style modern, whacked-out....

Philippe Besombes is a French electronic musician of the 70s and this reissues four of his works from the 70s, both solo and with his group Hydravion.
The two solo releases, Libra (1975) and Ceci Est Cela (1979) have both been previously released on CD by MIO, but they have been out of print for a decade. These include the bonus tracks that were on the MIO releases. The two by his 'electronic rock band' Hydravion [Hyrdravion (1977) and Stratos Airlines (1979)] have never been reissued on CD before...

First-time available on CD for this instrumental progressive/jazz-rock German quintet with Kraftwerk connections, of all things. I remember seeing this in the record shops, but I must admit that this is the first time I ever got to hear it - and...

This is packaged in a beautiful *thick* mini-lp sleeve and is a limited edition of only 300 copies!

The 1st ever reissue of a frighteningly rare 1969 album by the musicians of Parson Sound (who, it should be remembered, never released anything during their lifetimes, so that this is the first music that anyone outside of those who saw them perform ev...

This Swiss band only released this one, very collectable lp in 1977. At that time they were a quartet of vocals, keyboards, sax & drums.This has a lot of long tracks & instrumental passages, & is generally dark & gloomy progressive. Maybe a little...

The second of the two full length albums recorded by White/Chance's original (and greatest) band (and their only recordings, except for the tracks on No New York. For pure adrenalin, Buy Contortions has this beat, but I think I like this one a little more.

"Thanks to the support of ZE records and visionary fan president Michael Zilkha, James got to make his really primitive disco album, just as he had made the sick debut Buy the Contortions. These records not only had the sound, they had the...

A long out of print CD of an amazingly hot show by the 1980s King Crimson makes a welcome return. This is the best material by this band that I've heard...

Beat was the second release by the 80s King Crimson, which featured the powerful lineup of Robert Fripp, Adrian Belew, Tony Levin and Bill Bruford, all of it sympathetically remixed and expanded by Steven Wilson. This isn't one of the most essential albums in the cannon, imo, but it's a good album and this is the best version you can get of it.

"Beat is the 11th release in the acclaimed King Crimson 40th anniversary series. The classic album has been mixed for 5.1 Surround Sound from the original..

(In)famous, bootleg-quality, originally import-only live CD by the 'Islands' version of King Crimson, recorded live in the USA, just before the band collapsed in February and March, 1972.

This is a recording of the Power to Believe tour, recorded in Tokyo on April 16, 2003. Previously available only via mail order from the KCCC.

This has two shows: Live in Japan, April 16, 2003 and Live in London July 3, 2000.

"King Crimson is and will always be a live band first and foremost. I first saw them over 30 years ago and have been amazed each and every time I have seen them..

"This mini-album of mostly short tracks, including one hidden unlisted track, is more song-centered than other Crimson releases, and acts as an appetizer for the full-length studio album, The Power To Believe (2003). Happy With What You Have To Be...

30th anniversary 24 bit HDCD remaster! Fifth studio album and back in reinvigorated form with John Wetton, Bill Bruford, David Cross, Jamie Muir and bad Bob ripping out some amazing guitarwork! "Larks' is the first of a studio trilogy that encompassed...

Yes, the previous four studio albums were anywhere from very good to amazing, but this album signaled a new beginning and the emergence of a band that was one of the great, far-reaching groups whose influence is still being felt to this day and which...

Yes, it's overkill, but it's kind of magnificent overkill, as it includes every recording there is by this band and much more. Read below to see what is included in this insanely deluxe set. The live performance DVD is beyond revelatory, as is the...

$2.00 off the already low price, while they last!

This is a great sounding live release taken from a single night in the middle of the band's tour in November, 2015 from the surprising band reunion that gets nothing but very high marks from everyone who has seen it (they haven't come to my neck of the woods yet, so I am sadly not one of them!) and it's always nice to see new music from a seemingly fully engaged Robert Fripp and company! And it's a genuinely LIVE, live album!
Robert Fripp...

Their underrated third album and my 2nd favorite acid album back in the day (along with Soft Machine's Third [FACELIFT, dude] and We're Only In It For The Money; I guess I was into scaring myself!). "The black abyss where jazz and rock meet", it was...

This reissues on DVD two previously released shows that were only released on video tape in the 1980's. This has the 80's version of KC (Robert Fripp, Bill Bruford, Tony Levin and Adrian Belew) recorded live in France, 1982 ("The Noise") and Japan, 198...

This is the six disc version.
Ever since Robert Fripp re-formed King Crimson and started touring, this is the set that all the fans who saw and were blown away by the shows (and those that couldn't attend the shows) have been waiting and waiting for.
Robert Fripp: Guitar & keyboard
Mel Collins: Saxes & flute
Gavin Harrison: Drums
Jakko Jakszyk: Guitar & voice
Tony Levin: Basses & stick

30th anniversary 24 bit HDCD remaster. Sixth 'studio' album (more than half of it is live, actually) and back in reinvigorated form with John Wetton, Bill Bruford, David Cross and bad Bob Fripp! Includes the amazingly great tune "Fracture", which is worth the admission price alone. But you also get a bunch of other great stuff too, including The Great Deceiver. So, a must own.

This was the sixth 'studio' album (75% of it is live, actually) and back in reinvigorated form with John Wetton, Bill Bruford, David Cross and bad Bob Fripp, who puts in one of his finest ever performances, as does everyone else!

Great deal on two full length concert recordings from one of the best English bands of the progressive rock era. This is filled with interesting improvisations and hot playing. Listening over 30 years later I can still relate to the reasons that made...

Great deal on two full length concert recordings from one of the best English bands of the progressive rock era and beyond. Fascinating to hear the Bath, 1981 show when they were still calling themselves "Discipline" and hadn't made the name-change to King Crimson yet and despite the official designation of the sound as "fair", it's a perfectly listenable bootleg recording. The 1982 show is a professionally recorded 8 track recording and captures this band at a peak.

Originally available only at concert venues on King Crimson's sold out European 2016 tour. Much sought after by fans, hence more widespread release. The Elements tour boxes were devised specifically for the King Crimson tours but have since gone on to great success with fans with both 2014 and 2015 editions becoming firm sellers.
