This was the final album by the Peter Green-led version of Mac, which by this time featured a 3 guitar, bass, drums line-up. I think that Mac, along with Cream and the Jimi Hendrix Experience were THE great triumvirate of 60s 'blues influenced'...

"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....

"Focus has never been one for clever album titles and the rather pedestrian title to this album is no different. I don't know this for sure, but I assume this is the band's 8th studio album. The lineup for this one is the reformed new millennium Focus...

"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...

The Fucking Champs are pioneers of the style of progressive technical metal later picked up and further 'techicalized' by the likes of Canvas Solaris and Blotted Science, although TFC had more of a sense of humor, their sly, knowing wink at...well, at...

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...

Great price on the long, long, long out of print SACD version of this title. The first 'real' Genesis album, and an early (1970) classic of symphonic/progressive rock. This is a hybrid SACD, so if you don't have a SACD player, you can still play it on...

This has some of the earliest (and for me, as a confirmed bebopper, some of the very best) work by this very famous, very popular tenor saxist. I have an extensive collection of early Getz and even I was missing stuff that's on this set!

Now this is pretty fascinating and also it's in surprisingly high quality sound. This is the 'home demos' that Giles, Giles & Fripp worked on to get themselves their contract with Decca Records, as well as the demos that they worked on during the...

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...

Recorded live in (where else?) St. Louis, MO on 10/8/02 by Gjerstad-saxes, Flyvind Storesund-bass and Paal Nilssen-Love-drums.

Pretty good bootleg-sounding recording of a great band at their peak and doing material not on their 2 studio albums. For fans only, yes, but fans will be very pleased by the existence of this album...

"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...

OK bargain hunters and those who have not yet visited the Planet Gong - this is for you. All of the music on this out of print compilation sounds fine and for those of you who want to dip your toe into the madness of Gong, now you can see what all the...

You already know I am a bebop fanatic. I scored this great title a few years ago (paying $20.00 for it and happy to get it at all), but it's out of print and quite rare, selling for $60 and up when it can be found.

"At long last the historic...

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...

"The music of the Gourishankar - is the music of northerners, who are living on the joint of Europe and Asia, near the Ural Mountains. The musicians of the band call their music "The music for mystical dancing in the opium saloons", Up to this day...

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,...

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...

Second release by a young, avant-garde/progressive rock trio consisting of Jeff Cedrone - guitars, keyboards, synthesizers, electronics, John C. Miller - synthesizers, electronics, tapes, Stephen Zieminski - drums, percussion, mallets. It's definitely...

"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...

While they last, this is 45% off the regular price!

Great to see this classic/ basic repertoire progressive rock title available again! All of their albums are really good to great & worth owning. This was their fifth and final and most...

While they last, this is $10.00 off the regular price!

This is something that only a few will be interested in, but those few will really enjoy this. Tomas is an exquisite Argentinian guitarist who has played with with Astor Piazolla and even has..

Unique band who veer madly from power pop to Cheer-Accident or Cardiacs- styled 'new progressive'. All of their albums are frustratingly boundary shifting (or refreshing in their refusal to toe any one line).

"Inspired equally by jangle pop and..

Percussionist Trilok Gurtu comes from a long line of respected Indian classical musicians, but he's best known for his genre-blending fusions of world music and jazz. Crazy Saints is one of his most complex and challenging releases to date, enlisting t...

"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...

Hahn was the guitarist with John Handy's acclaimed group of 1964/65, which was kinda ahead of it's time in it's stretched out pieces and faint electric touches (Hahn's guitar and violinist Michael White's work). Michael White also appears on this 1967...

This is the second release by masterful Dutch fusion guitarist Richard Hellebeek, who you should know from keyboardist Lalle Larsson's tremendously great, last album Nightscapes.

Nearly 10 years ago, Richard made his first solo album, which...

"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...

"The album is the result of a collaboration between Mick Karn and Yoshihiro Hanno. If the British bassist's signature fretless sound dominates throughout, this is nonetheless the Japanese techno artist's project first and foremost. Hanno composed...

Even lower price on this great title, while they last!
Seriously needed reissue of the first of the two Arista albums (the only records released during the band's lifetime) by the band I & many others consider to be the greatest US symphonic band of

"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...

*PLEASE NOTE - In addition to the cut out mark, these copies have cuts and bruises on the outer sleeve of the package. Inner digipacks appear to be fine. Still a killer deal on this excellent set! The Experience may have gone out in a mess...

"The discs contained in this boxed set entitled Rockin' the USA Vol.2 cover the period April 1969 through to July 1970. During that fifteen month period, Jimi disbanded the original line up of the Experience, played possibly the world's most famous....


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...

Six great albums, all of which came out in 1955-1961 by one of my favorite pianist and composer of that era, a west coast-based player who never got the credit or acclaim he deserved.

You get: Meditations, High Hope, Hope Meets Foster...

This is subtitled "Songs by Hugh Hopper" and that's just what it is, as it collects tunes from the Voiceprint catalog of his songs and even includes a otherwise unavailable version of "Was a Friend" with Robert Wyatt singing!...

"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...

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....

"I only knew this Italian band by name but they surprised me very positively with this compilation CD with songs recorded between 1992 and 2002. The musical brainchild is multi- instrumentalist Fabio Zuffanti, he mentions in the booklet: "These songs...
