Recording information: Fillmore East, New York, New York (11/28/1968 - 11/30/1968); Fillmore West, San Francisco, California (10/24/1968 - 10/26/1968). These 1968 live recordings from the Filmore East and West are the definitive live document of San Francisco's...

"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...

We have a specific number of copies at $2.00 off the regular price. When we run out, it goes back to full price, so don't delay if you want this.

"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...

Yes, nowadays it's easy to laugh at the image of the long flowing hair of the Japanese man sitting tranquilly cross-legged on the floor, but remember that Kitaro was a founding member of the Far East Family Band in the 70s and an important part of the...

"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 ...

This is a nicely done, charming, period-piece release that has quite good sound considering the unreleased nature and age of the materials. Most people were not even aware of this band's existence! "Maneige fans are in for quite a treat with these long...

"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...

Yeah, I know what you all are thinking, but of the first wave of US rock and rollers, I would venture to say that Mr. Richard Penniman was the wildest and his music has held up remarkably well for being 55 years old since the earliest of these tracks...

"How's this for a group. Teddy Quintet leader and vibes, Booker Ervin on tenor, Booker Little on trumpet, Mal Waldron piano, Addison Farmer on bass and Ed Shaughnessy (who latter was really co-leader of Johnny Carson's Tonight Show band) on drums...

"Sunbeam Masters is a series of deluxe CDs celebrating some of the most enduring underground albums of the 1960s and 1970s. Manufactured to the highest standards, each is presented in a mini-LP gatefold sleeve, complete with a full-color booklet...

Two long-unavailable titles by this late 60s bluesman who did much to revitalize and reinvigorate the form. Recycling is a live album which showcases Taj's great command of the form and his willingness to do the the unusual, performing on just a guitar...

"Their best sounding live recording so far...A stunning set , a highly recommanded CD. This is live-music at it's best !"-rateyourmusic.com

Malibran are a current Italian band who play classical/symphonic rock reminiscent of Banco and other 70s Italian classics. This is a collection of unreleased materials from 1989 - 2002.

"Hard rock mixed with soft symphonic prog. The first album..

Christian Marclay was one of the earliest folks to make an art form out of the turntable, using the device as a tool to make suprising juxtapositions. Emerging from the unbelievably fertile late 70s / early 80s downtown improv scene (where I first...

This live album, recorded between May 2004-May 2005 isn't really a live album in any conventional sense except Frank Zappa's. In other words, it has been massively worked-on in the studio, but you still get the raw power of a live performance at its base.

"Jim McAuley's The Ultimate Frog is a two-CD collection of duets between the guitarist and four great musicians: Leroy Jenkins (violin, viola), Nels Cline (guitars), Ken Filiano (bass) and Alex Cline (drums/percussion). The result of these pairings is ...

Jackie's best known for his stupendous string of Blue Note titles from the early to late 60s and rightly so. But this earlier title from 1956 features a great band and is still a fine release at a great price...

Well, I made the Claudia Quintet joke mentally myself, so I suppose you can do so too. Having said that, it's really nice to see this released, from our friends in Estonia who run MKDK (who also released that great Phlox album a couple of years ago)...

The complete studio recordings (there wasn't very much, despite the relatively long stay that Coltrane had with Monk) of these two giants together. Both historically significant and, more importantly, musically significant! Includes a big booklet with...

Every year a bunch of synth-fans and musicians get together and celebrate the work of Robert Moog and his invention. This has some great footage of The Mahavishnu Project, Jan Hammer backed by The Mahavishnu Project, Keith Emerson & band, Jodan Rudess...

While they last, this is $6.00 off the regular price!

Massively hyped and really extremely good psych/folk album.

"First legit reissue of this album, one of the all time classic UK folk/psych albums, even better than Simon Finn!...

This packages the Slapp Happy and Henry Cow man's two best 'rock' albums from 1978 and 1981 together in one fine package. Fans of intelligent song-format albums and (to my mind) John Cale's better works will really love these. Glad to see that the two...

This normally sells for $17.00, 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, but they will cost $5.00 more!...

"Singer/guitarist Steve Morgen and company (bassist Rennie Genossa, drummer Bob Maiman and rhythm guitarist Barry Stock) originally hailed from Long Island, New York. Signed by ABC's short-lived Probe subsidiary, their 1969 debut Morgen teamed them...

"As evinced on his eagerly anticipated album, Morse's songwriting talents continue to evolve - as do his remarkable chops. Together with his steadfast collaborators bassist Dave LaRue and drummer Van Romaine, SMB continues to amplify the interactive...

"This New York-based sextet only released one album, combining The Beatles, rock, jazz and classical influences to create a haunting, lost classic. It sold poorly at the time, perhaps because its concept (it was based on the work of American poet Edwin...

The true story of a rock band playing Frank Zappa music around Europe. Life on the road for a no-budget band playing for the love of the music. Told by the band themselves through interviews and live footage featuring special guest performances by Jimmy.

"The first sparks of the Liverpool (UK) based band "The Muffin Men" was kindled with Roddie Gilliard. After listening to one of Zappa's albums in the late 60's' he was impelled to pick up his instrument. Ten year later he found himself studying at...

This is a fantastic price on a great set of what really is the best of the groups early, best known material from when they were pioneers of a cross between psychedelia and Tropicalia (a genre they helped to invent). This 1999 compilation, which is...

"We're An American Band -- MX-80's first studio album in over a decade -- is both hilariously depressing and morosely upbeat. The ground-breaking Bay Area quartet, known for its searing guitar work -- by founder Bruce Anderson -- and deadpan commentary...

OK bargain hunters and the Canterbury curious - this is for you. This is the two National Health albums that the band somehow managed to record during their (too short) lifetime; music that directly challenged the popular and critical tastes of their...

Network includes: Scen Olafson (vocals); Steve Topping, Keith More, Tim Crowther, Ian Aitken (guitar); Jan Hammer (keyboards); Algy Ward (bass); Steve Clarke (drums).

"L.N.C." was recorded in 1996 and features a more rock oriented sound from...

Ken Nordine was one of the pioneers of jazz and spoken word and his rich voice has graced commercials (such as the classic Levi's jeans commercial "And how are things in YOUR town?"). Here he is in his 80s and he's still got it...

I'm hardly a cinephile, but I found Peter Greenaway's films unusual and unusually odd art films of the 80s and 90s to be really great and fascinating. And, of course, Michael Nyman's wonderfully insistent, personal take on minimalism fueled all of...

Really excellent debut album from this young Seattle band playing adventurous, instrumental rock music; I'd say 'progressive rock', but they are young band and they play 'progressive' rock music, but if you think 'progressive rock' like Afuche, then...
