Ako Doma - Ako Doma (special)
Ako Doma's music is a scoop of less known prog rock, but also has its impurities or its "new-culture" leanings. Despite that it isn't hard to get their works, it's on the other hand a bit hard to savor them completely, every spin taking you deep in...
Albion Band - Happy Accident (special)
"The Albion Band's 1998 release, "Happy Accident", is a marvelous album of contemporary folk-rock influenced by traditional English music. For the record, Ken Nicol, Joe Broughton, Neil Marshall, Gillie Nicholls, and Kellie While join the band's...
Allen, Daevid - Live 1963 (special)
Canterbury history lesson 101: Before Soft Machine and Caravan, there were the Wildeflowers. But even before the Wildeflowers there was the Daevid Allen Trio. This document of one of their very, very few performances, at the Marquee Club as part...
Allison, Mose - The Collection 2 x CDs (special)
Great price on a great collection of music. This includes 48 tracks from his 1st five releases. Lots of originals (including early original classics like "Parchman Farm" and "Young Man Blues"), but it's the covers that show where Mose was coming from...
Anti-Depressive Delivery - Feel Melt Release Escape (special)
A Norwegian band with a heavy take on progressive rock. Reminiscent of Sonambulist, but possibly even heavier!
"Once again we turn to Norway for a fresh take on an old sound. With amps turned way up, Anti-Depressive Delivery blend classic...
Art Zoyd - Le Champ des L'Armes (special)
"Electronic oratorio for 4 musicians surrounding the public and 5 video sources", I bet this is amazing to experience in the flesh. Less sure of how I feel it works as a CD alone; as has been the case with them for the last 20 years, it gets more...
At War With Self - Torn Between Dimensions (special)
"This new group is an instrumental power prog trio leaping onto the progressive scene. The project is the brainchild of guitarist/multi-instrumentalist Glenn Snelwar. Torn Between Dimensions, the band's debut recording, features Snelwar on guitar...
19-LE 1053 special
Aurora Project - Shadow Border (special)

Banco Del Mutuo Soccorso - Banco Del Mutuo Soccorso (special)
If you don't own this album, their debut, this is definitely one of the great Italian progressive/symphonic efforts. Dual keyboard classical Italian rock band with a fabulous, operatic singer, this is a classic.
Banco Del Mutuo Soccorso - Darwin! (special)
The 2nd album, & one of the best by this dual keyboard classical Italian rock band with a fabulous, operatic singer. This is one of the great Italian classical rock albums by one of the great Italian bands.
Banco Del Mutuo Soccorso - Io Sono Nato Libero (special)
This is definitely one of the great Italian progressive/symphonic efforts! Dual keyboard classical Italian rock band with a fabulous, operatic singer, this is their classic third album.
Barclay James Harvest - Revival: Through the Eyes of John Lees 2 x CDs (special)
This 1999 live album features songs both old and new and the line-up of John Lees and Woolly Wolstenholme in the front-line, so you know that the vocals, guitar and mellotron/keyboards are all going to sound right, along with Craig Fletcher-bass...
Barker, Nicklas - El Ultimo fin de Semana (special)
This is a totally surprise and a big thrill for Anekdoten fans who have been waiting a LONG time for a new release. This is a Spanish suspense film soundtrack by the guitarist/keyboardist/composer Nicklas Barker of Anekdoten, and while it has elements...
Barnabe, Arrigo/Paulo Braga - Ao Vivo, Em Porto (special)
Arrigo Barnabe is a Brazilian bandleader and composer who released 3-4 real classic out-rock albums in the 1980s that were comparable in some ways to Albert Marcoeur's first four. They were reissued on CD a few years ago, but are now long out of print...
Basie, Count - Basically Basie: Studio dates 1937-1945 : 4 x CDs in slipcase (due to size and weight, this price for the USA only. Outside of the USA the price will be adjusted as needed) (special)
Was there ever a more swingin' band than Basie's late 30s/early 40s group? If so, I haven't heard it! This has ALL of the the best material from this monster period in the band's existence.
Beck, Jeremy - Pause and Feel and Hark (special)
"Jeremy Beck has created a special kind of musical world; one which combines hope with a gentle sadness and nostalgia. It is the kind that you glimpse upon waking on a Sunday morning and seeing a steady rain in the garden, knowing that you can go right...
Bergamo, John - On the Edge (special)
Percussionist John Bergamo has worked most notably with Frank Zappa on some of his mid 70s albums and was one of Ed Mann's teachers (Ed also played with Frank). This old CMP title features great sound and utilizes the array of odd instruments, African...
Bernard, Will - Directions to My House (special)
Very fine Americana-styled jazz/blues/rock/whatever mix from 3 excellent players.

19-Power Age 008
Bigelf - Cheat the Gallows (special)
By my count, this is the fourth and latest album by this Los Angeles-based progressive hard rock/retro/stoner outfit. Led by keyboardist/vocalist Damon Fox, the band features tons of Hammond organ, Mini-moog, etc. etc. etc. The other musicians on...
Bjornstad, Ketil/Terje Rypdal - Life in Leipzig (special)
"A live recording from the Leipzig Opera House is the debut documentation of the duo of Ketil Bjørnstad and Terje Rypdal (working together since 1999). Material revisits pieces from Bjørnstad’s “Water Stories” and “The Sea” and from Rypdal’s...
Blossom Toes - Love Bomb: Live 1967-1969 : 2 x CDs (special)
While they last, this is $12.00 off the regular price!
This is a pretty great thing to see. The 1967 Swedish show has long been available in trading circles, but here it is sounding the best it can (reasonably good considering the age), made...
Blue Nile - High (special)
"Like a melancholic but problematic love affair, this album simultaneously comforts and distresses a wounded heart. In that sense it's most reminiscent of...well, er, basically everything else this band has produced. The dichotomy of exposing oneself to..
Bond, Graham - Live at Klooks Kleek (special)
Recorded over 40 years ago in 1964 at a tiny club, this was wild, radical, stomping music in its day and it can still be enjoyed now. This is where Jack Bruce and Ginger Baker first worked together (included is an early but not that different version...
11-Noble Rot 5022
Bonilla, Marc - EE Ticket (special)
This is the first album by guitarist Marc Bonilla who has played with a lot of different folks since this debut from 20 years ago (1991) and now, most notably with Keith Emerson in Keith's band (Keith appears here), Kevin Gilbert (who appears here) and...
Bostic, Earl - The EP Collection Vol. 2 (special)
This is long out of print, on the always excellent See For Miles reissue label. Alto saxophonist Earl Bostic was a master of his instrument, but he was somewhat underappreciated by jazz fans due to the string of popular R&B/jump blues hits he recorded...
Bowie, David - Lodger (remastered) (special)
"On the surface, Lodger is the most accessible of the three Berlin-era records David Bowie made with Brian Eno, simply because there are no instrumentals and there are a handful of concise pop songs. Nevertheless, Lodger is still gnarled and twisted...
11-Blue Note 262662
Braff, Malcolm - The Preacher (special)
This is a French-only Blue Note release by this Swiss-born pianist who leads a band consisting of fine if unknown French musicians on trumpet, bass, drums and percussion. It's recorded and mixed by Jan Erik Kongshaug at Rainbow Studios, so you know it...

Brown, Pete - Live (special)
"I've been out of touch with Pete since his Harvest days. Didn't think he was around anymore. So, I was surprised to see this release. I bought it with minimum expectations and was amazed at how good he sounds. Pete's voice, singing, and style has...
Bruce, Jack - A Question of Time (special)
Great price on this 1989 solo album by Jack, which features a bonus track not on the original issue.
"When this album was released by Epic in '89 it was announced as something like a big come back album, full of illustrious gueststars...
Bruce, Jack/Robin Trower - Seven Moons (special)
While they last, this is 1/3rd off the usual price! Well, this is a pretty great album if you love Jack and/or Robin and also a bit of a great surprise, even though they have worked together before. The tunes are all co-composed by Jack and Robin...
Bulldog Breed - Made In England (special)
Fun, extremely obscure psych/early prog British rarity, originally released on Nova.
"Amazing 1969 UK mod/psych/freakbeat rarity featuring soon to be members of T2 and The Flies. This is the first time it has been reissued officially on CD...
Bushman - Polyphonies From The Kalahari Desert DVD (special)
"They live in north of the Kalahari, in a semi-desert bush region, and they rarely travel outside their country. Even today, the Ju'hoan culture's polyphonies are closely tied to community life. Each community has its own repertories. Hand-clapping...
Bushman's Revenge - Thou Shalt Boogie! (special)
This normally sells for $18.00, but we've got a special on a limited number of copies for $5.00 off the regular price. Once those copies are gone, there will be other, identical copies still available and this will still rock and kick butt, but they...
Byrds-Preflyte 2 x CDs (special)
If you are an old guy, you undoubtably have a fondness for this great American band. This is very early stuff, but almost all of it is really fine stuff for the time.
"In those heady days before they knocked AM radio (and the British Invasion)...
Caesar, J.A. - Kokkyou Junreika (special)
Tokyo playwright, director and artist J.A. Caesar sprang to prominence in the early '70s largely through his work with Shuji Terayama's Tenjo Sajiki Theatre, specializing in vaguely sinister music reminiscent of a Hammer House Of Horrors soundtrack...
Camper van Beethoven - New Roman Times (special)
"In 2002, Camper Van Beethoven reunited for a nationwide tour on what seemed like a whim, occasioned by a closet-cleaning belated issue of a song-by-song cover of Fleetwood Mac's Tusk, an album they'd recorded as a joke back in 1987. The tour must have...
15-SPECIAL DERAM 8829522
Caravan - Caravan (expanded/remastered) (special)
WHILE THEY LAST, this is over 50% off the regular price!
This title has been remastered from the original master tapes. This is the band's previously very hard to find debut from 1968, featuring the classic lineup (Dave Sinclair, Richard Sinclair...
Carter, Regina - I'll Be Seeing You: A Sentimental Journey (special)
A great album, but you must remember that I *like* Granny music. If you have an appreciation for 'the great American songbook, this is a as good as anything released in that vein in the past decade!...
Blue Note 92547
Carter, Ron - Dear Miles (Mega Blowout Sale)
"With his tribute album to Miles Davis, bassist Ron Carter waxes nostalgic about the five years that he spent with the trumpeter's straight-ahead quintet, and about the worldwide mentoring that Davis provided for years afterward. Carter, who just turned..
Chapman, Roger - One More Time for Peace (special)
"I'm rather surprised that I'm the first one to review and even rate this record. It has been the weekly tip on a large German newspaper about 3 months ago. They were really enthusiastic about it, and - against normal operation - I can confirm their....
Circle - Telescope 2 x CDs (special)
I was going to say that this is the latest Circle album, but since their website states that this is 'aproximately' the 7th Circle album released in 2007, I am afraid I will cough and an 8th one will come out. This presents the band in full NWOFHM ("new w
Cobb, Arnett - A Proper Introduction (special)
Released on Proper, a great UK label who do an amazing job in terms of packaging, presentation and especially in terms of sonics. This is fun, jumping proto-rock 'n' roll/rhythm & blues, basic repertoire material. A great place to hear some of his best...
Coda - Sounds of Passion (expanded/remastered) 2 x CDs (special)
One of the better progrock albums from the 1980s - and one that has been unavailable for some time - is now available again in a greatly expanded form. This was their first album and their best. The leader is keyboardist Erik De Vroomen, who gives the...
Cohn, Al - Eight Classic Albums (remastered) 4 x CDs (special)
Eight great works, all of which came out in 1954-1960 by one of the great if under-rated by all except other musicians, bop/hard bop tenor man out there. Many of these feature his long time band mate Zoot Sims, and they were pretty much a perfect...
Coleman, Ornette - Something Else!!! (special)
This is the ground zero of modern jazz's recorded efforts of the last 50 years; if you want to hear another recording that had as much influence, you'd have to go back nearly 15 years earlier to Dizzy Gillespie and Charlie Parker's first recordings...
Collegium Musicum - Divergencie 2 x CD (special)
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]
Collier, Graham - Charles River Fragment (special)
"Melodically dark and strong, with roots in both the black American jazz and European composed music, all integrated into a personal statement of an incredible depth."-Erling Kroner, Jazz Special, Denmark
"A well-designed and strong...
