Individually, Jim O'Rourke and Christian Fennesz have been responsible for numerous legendary works that merge the traditional avant-garde with contemporary sensibilities. On It's Hard For Me To Say I'm Sorry these giants of experimental..

"Boasting two fine lead guitarists (including Rich Dangel, a longtime member of legendary garage band the Wailers), in their brief existence, this Seattle quartet shared stages with The Doors, Led Zeppelin and The Grateful Dead. Their sole album came....

"This superb collection of skewed psychedelic pop was produced by Buzz Cason (renowned for his work with Elvis Presley, Jimmy Buffett and others) and made by a Texan quartet. Originally released in May 1970, and billed as "a rock novella," it follows....

Waysiders of a certain age will remember John Foxx as the leader of early electro-wavers Ultravox for their 1st 3 (and most arty/best) albums. After leaving he made music a bit more pop oriented, so this very classy ambient release is a pleasant...

"An album so incredibly rare (only a single acetate exists), that many collectors have doubted the album's existence -- until now! The rarest, and I would dare to say best, folk/psych album from Peter Howell and John Ferdinando, musical brainchildren...

Satoko Fujii is an masterful Japanese pianist who is also ridiculously prolific, which dozens of releases, most of them Japanese-only, to her credit. She works in a pretty wide variety of jazz styles, from utterly free to scored big band and many...

Unique progressive rock in that Giltrap started as a folkie and still basically performs solely on acoustic guitar. The best music that you can use as music to a nice dinner party you will ever hear!

"Gordon Giltrap's "Fear Of The Dark" is...

As of this writing (12/2010), which is Gordon's brand new album, available in limited quantities at this special price. Many people rave about guitarists like Steve Hackett, Steve Howe and Anthony Phillips, but I think Gordon Giltrap is one of the most..

"This album recorded with Ray Burley has been completely re mastered and re packaged and is re issued with 2 bonus tracks. The stylish production includes several new pictures of Raymond and Gordon and informative booklet notes provided by Paul Fowles...

"A supremely talented 5-piece progressive hard rock outfit from Kentucky. Originally released in 1972 on the Bridges label. The band always tight and composed, storms through 7 finely-crafted self-penned songs with flair and originality."...

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...

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...

David and Birdsongs worked on this multi-faceted performance piece for several years, touring large theatres and getting some major press out of it.
Obviously it's not a strictly musical work, and the main audience is not intended to be Birdsongs fans, but there is some great music here and the overall effect of David's work with Birdsong's musical backing is charming and thoughtful.

"1001 Real Apes is a spoken word and music collaboration created by David Greenberger and Birdsongs of the...

Greer-Between Two Worlds $9.00 (special) "'Obscure artifact out of a local scene that produced cult music for a 15-year period; this is a powerful trip in a song-oriented 1970s British rock/hardrock style, with psych moves on the two long epics...

"Grindlestone brings together Douglas Erickson and Don Falcone. Their music as Grindlestone is built form manipulations of music performances and found sound — from construction work at Stanford University to an MRI. Don captains Spirits Burning...

"Here's a nice collection of music. Steve Hackett, erstwhile lead guitarist of 70's era Genesis, has pulled together material (some previously available, some not) from the mid-1980s. Following the one album and one tour of GTR (the prog super-group...

"Recorded at the end of Hackett's 1994 Italian tour, this is a live document of one of his classical guitar performances. Those who liked his releases Bay of Kings, Momentum, and A Midsummer Night's Dream will want to seek this out as well. Hackett...

"Hamadryad is a group of musicians all driven by the same passion: musical creation. Their music tastefully blends progressive and classic rock, with a touch of cinematic vision, taking the listener on a musical adventure. (In classical mythology...

"Those who claim that 1957 was a good year for the Newport are right on the ball: First of all, many great musicians were in the best of form; check out Basie's reunion with Jimmy Rushing, Lester Young and Jo Jones ( featuring Roy Eldridge and Illinois...

"Can an effective episode of Classic Albums be produced when its subject's creator has been dead for more than a quarter century? Perhaps surprisingly, the answer is yes. With Experience members Noel Redding and Mitch Mitchell, additional musicians on...


This is the fairly amazingly powerful and over-the-top release by the fairly amazing drummer Zach Hill, who is also one half of the shred/progressive/noise duo Hella. This has a large number of big names from the underground, such as Marnie Stern...

A 2007 release by one of the great songwriters and lyricists of our time, up there with Peter Blegvad, but much more prolific. "Viva Seattle Tacoma, Viva Viva Viva Sea-Tac; They've got the best computers and coffee and smack!"

A great collection of previously unreleased recordings from very early in his career that are presented here in excellent sound for lost, casually made recordings that are over 60 years old! This is what John Lee did best: A man, a guitar, his voice...

"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...

"Yes, I know giving things 5 stars is boring, and I don't do it all the time, but this album is easily worth it. You have a collection of the best tracks from something like 6 Ashley Hutchings and Albion Band CDs, with no real duds, all for an amazingly..

A great price on a great 1st release by guitarist Jeff Barsky of Silver Spring, MD who gigs in the Washington, DC area and beyond as Insect Factory. I've seen Jeff present his guitar and pedalboard magic at a number of shows and he always brings some...

"Vanguard gave us a magnificent gift this year,with this issue of a complete unknown session by the very great Nehemiah "Skip" James (1902-1969),the most original master of the country blues. Born in Bentonia (like Jack Owens),Skip gave to the blues...

"This project has been wrongly seen as my next solo project - this is in fact the second Jazz Warrior record which unified a group of musicians to commemorate the bicentenary of the abolition of slavery by the british house of parliament. It would be...

"This is a beautifully packaged and thoughtfully programmed compilation of recent live recordings of songs across the span of Jethro Tull's sizeable catalog. Their origins as a blues band with folk leanings made them a welcome alternative to the power...

"Although post-Group Scene band Flowers were gaining increasing popularity in late '60s Tokyo, founder and guiding light Yuya Uchida was becoming increasingly frustrated that cult status was not translating into commercial success. Watching a rehearsal...

"Jono el Grande is a self-taught composer, musician, conductor, painter, and prankster and remains an outsider on the far margins of the Norwegian experimental music scene. He released his debut mini-album Utopian Dances in 1999, a collection of absurdist instrumentals recorded at home using not much more than a workstation synth. 2003 saw the release...

Their second album. "Karcius is an instrumental group aiming at playing a mix of progressive rock and fusion jazz music. Four instrumentalists created the band at spring 2001: Dominique Blouin on bass, Thomas Brodeur on drums, Simon L’Espérance on guit...

Outstanding price on this collection from the albums pianist Wynton Kelly recorded for Vee-Jay between 1959-1961. Featured are Sam Jones, Paul Chambers (bass), Philly Jo Jones (drums), Lee Morgan (trumpet), Wayne Shorter (tenor sax).

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: Guitar & keyboards
Mel Collins: saxes & flute...

"20 of his best tracks collected here. This is actually a collection of his singles (he made only singles until 1969 - any albums before then were just collections of singles) from 1966-1974, which is considered to be his best period. Obviously since...

So, I am in the middle of reading John French's book about the Magic Band ("Through the Eyes of Magic") and one of the things it is giving me an appreciation of is the guitarwork of the original two guitarists in the Magic Band, Doug Moon & especially...

"2008 reissue of perhaps the rarest album on Ember Records. The band had already taken their collaboration as far as their individual musical tastes would allow and had split before it was released. Further, due to an "offensive hand signal" inside...

Jeffrey sent me this CD out of the blue; I'd never heard of him, even though he's a homeboy from Baltimore. This is an album of electronic space-music and it's a good one. He's definitely influenced by the classics, but he also has a more modern sound ...

"Sequentaria is Jeffrey Koepper's third solo release. This release features Jeffrey Koepper's exploration of analogue sequencer styles and atmospheres. Jeffrey Koepper has been releasing excellent electronic music since 1985 in various groups and collabor

Microtonalism is hard! And they do it. It's odd to hear this without Harry's own instruments, but this is a strong performance of stuff that must basically be nearly impossible to transpose for string quartet...

This album has some of Fela's most politicized lyrics and it also has a weird history, as it was released in several forms. This has 3 songs produced by Bill Laswell when he was hired by the label to 'popularize' Fela's sound and some typical 80s hired...

"There were three great beats in the 70 s: Fela Kuti s Afrobeat, James Brown s Funk, and Klaus Dinger's NEU!"-Brian Eno

This collection of 70s works by Fela and the great Africa 70, includes 3 long tracks totalling 45' and includes one of his...

"This meeting of the minds and bands of Afro-funk creator Fela Anikulapo-Kuti and American vibist and R&B/jazz innovator Roy Ayers is a collaboration that shouldn't work on the surface. Fela's music was raw, in your face politically and socially, and...

Seun is the son of Fela Kuti and the music he makes here, on his debut album, is hugely in the Fela tradition, even using Fela's amazingly great 1980s band Egypt 80. If you are a fan of classic Fela or great Afro-pop, Seun is a more than worthy son to...

"This is an exciting display of 6 string prowess that really isn't classical, yet will inevitably become a classic. It is an amazing tour de force worthy of the California Guitar Trio. The efforst here focus on composers and players who are heroes to...

One of the very first (maybe *the* first) CD release on the late, great AYAA label was by this mostly instrumental Swiss trio of tenor sax, bass and drums. 15 years later, here they are again with a fine second album, and what I said about their first ...

"In October 1998, Liquid Tension Experiment reunited at Milbrook Studios in upstate New York to record our 2nd album. A few days into the sessions, John Petrucci's pregnant wife went into premature labor - leaving myself, Jordan (Rudess) and Tony...
