Hostsonaten - Springtides (A Collection of Rare & Unreleased Tracks 1992-2002) (special)
"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...
Hutchings, Ashley/Albion Band - No Surrender 2 x CDs (special)
"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..
Insect Factory - Air Traffic Control Sleep (special)
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...
Ithaca - A Game For All Who Know (special)
This is a very famous rarity. It is a little bit overhyped, but it's still a really good album for the most part, and this version is by far the best sounding and best presented available. "1972 UK private pressing megararity from the same band that ma...
James, Skip - Rare and Unreleased (special)
"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...
Jazz Warriors - Afropeans (special)
"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...
Jefferson Airplane - Bless It's Pointed Little Head (expanded/remastered) (special)
Includes 3 bonus tracks, recorded from the same series of concerts."Paul Kantner (vocals, guitar); Grace Slick, Marty Balin (vocals); Jorma Kaukonen (guitar); Jack Casady (bass guitar); Spencer Dryden (drums). Liner Note Author: Jeff Tamarkin.
Jefferson, Blind Lemon - The Complete 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)
"This album contains all known surviving Jefferson recordings. For blues lovers, having a complete Jefferson set is like having the complete works of Shakespeare. Jefferson's powerful tenor voice and freakish guitar technique would be reason enough...
Jenkins, Karl/Mike Ratledge - Movement: Music for TV and Film (special)
Exactly what it says. For the hardest of hard-core fans.
Jenkins, Karl/Mike Ratledge - Some Shufflin': Music for TV and Film (special)
Exactly what it says. For the hardest of hard-core fans.
Jethro Tull - Living With The Past (special)
"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...
Joe with Flower Travellin' Band - The Times (special)
"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 - Melody of a Muddled Mason (special)
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...
Karcius - Kaleidoscope (special)
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...
Karcius - Sphere (special)
Exciting new band from Montreal. Karcius are an instrumental quartet blending progressive rock and fusion with an emphasis on the former. The music tends to balance guitars and keyboards with a little bit of a tilt in the favor of some gorgeous guitarw...
Kawachi, Kuni - Kirikyojen (special)
Special while they last! 50% off the regular price!
"After the release of the Challenge album in 1969 by the proto Flower Travellin' Band, Yuya Uchida brought in Kuni Kawachi, organist and leader of The Happenings Four. They spent the early part..

King Crimson - Live In Toronto 2 x CDs (special)
$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!
King Kong - The Original 1933 Classic (special edition) 2 x DVDs (special)
What does King Kong have to do with 'out music'? Well, other than the pretty cool score by the legendary Max Steiner, it has nothing at all to do with music. Still...some of you I would suspect had similar upbringings to your narrator here and spent...
King, Albert - The Very Best of Albert King (special)
"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...
King, Denny - Evil Wind is Blowing (special)
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...
Kitaro - Mandala (special)
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...
Knocker Jungle - Knocker Jungle (expanded) (special)
"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...
Koepper, Jeffrey - Momentium (special)
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 ...
Koepper, Jeffrey - Sequentaria (special)
"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
Kronos Quartet - Harry Partch: US Highball (special)
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...
Kubisch, Christina/Fabrizio Plessi - Tempo Liquido (special)
First CD reissue of legendary collaboration between Christina Kubisch and Fabrizio Plessi.
"The performance started with a four-channel ambient sound that continued throughout the whole performance. Since I had no sampling possibilities at...
Kubisch, Christina/Fabrizio Plessi - Two and Two (special)
"During her 25 year career, Berlin based sound artist Christina Kubisch has pioneered the creation of site-specific sound and light environments, sound sculptures and sound installations. The roots of her abstract sound realities began in the intense...
Kuti, Fela - Army Arrangement (special)
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...
Kuti, Fela - Music is the Weapon of the Future (special)
"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...
Kuti, Fela/Roy Ayers - Music of Many Colours (special)
"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...
Kuti, Seun - Many Things (special)
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...
LAGQ - Guitar Heroes (special)
"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...
Land, Harold - Six Classic Albums plus Bonus Tracks (remastered) 4 x CDs (special)
One of the greatest (not the best known or most heralded, but greatest!) of the west coast late 50s/60s saxophonists. This has material from his best known period, 1958-1961, and includes his classic, best-known release, "The Fox", among other treasures..
Lapouge, Jean - Hauts Plateaux (special)
A great price on a great disc; anything that has ties to Noetra is going to be of interest and at this price? Snap it up!
Nice to see these later solo works by the leader of the great chamber-rock/ECM-styled band Noetra appear. This is from 1993...
Lard Free - Unnamed (special)
Out of print for years and at a great price!
"Great lost recording in 1971 and 72, before the first album. High quality sound! Francois Mativet (guitare), Philippe Bolliet (sax tenor, clarinette), Dominique Triloff (orgue), Robert Wood...
Larsen Rupin - Contredanses (special)
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 ...
Lasting Weep - 1969-1971 (special)
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...
19-Magna Carta 9060
Liquid Trio Experiment - Spontaneous Combustion (special)
"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...
Little Richard - The Collection (special)
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...
Little, Booker/Teddy Charles - Live: The Complete Concert (special)
"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...
Magic Mixture - This is the Magic Mixture (expanded/mini-lp sleeve/remastered) (special)
"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...
23-Bamboo Box 001
Magical Power Mako - Hapmoniym 1972-1975 : 5 x CD box set (Special)
A cool MORE THAN $30 off the regular price! Hard to beat that!
"The epitome of a cult artist (and a favorite of Julian Cope), the enigmatic Magical Power Mako (aka Makoto Kurita) has been sporadically releasing albums in his native Japan since 1974. This lavish numbered, limited edition 5CD set collects jams taped by him between 1972 and 1975, and comes complete with a full 12-page booklet. Encompassing psychedelic folk, Krautrock, electronica and fuzz guitar, the music's effect is frequently...
Magma - Uber Kommandoh 2 x CDs (special)
OK bargain hunters and the Kobaian curious - this is for you. This is the final two "real" Magma albums of the 1970s; Udu Wudu and Attahk here complete as they were originally issued, with a track from "Live" thrown in for fun, although they are not...

Mahal, Taj - Recycling the Blues & Other Related Stuff/Oooh So Good 'n Blues (special)
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...
Malibran - In Concerto : Official Bootleg (special)
"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 - Strani Colori (special)
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..
Marclay, Christian - dj TRIO (special)
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...
Mars Volta - Scab Dates (special)
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.
