"The Story is a duo comprising Martin Welham (leader of acid folk legends Forest) and his multi-instrumentalist son Tom. Having honed their melodic brand of psych-tinged acoustic pop for several years, they have at last prepared a full-length...

Great price on this title, which is a rare BBC live recording from later 1977, when the band were at the pinnacle of their mid-70s progressive rock sound that was still informed by the British folk of their original roots. Live in America? No. Really good

"A fantastic selection of some of the greatest Sufi singers of India. Styles range from traditional with harmonium, tabla and mrdanga (Abida Parveen, Wadali Brothers), to modern renditions of these ancient and beautiful songs presented by a younger...

"This superb blend of psychedelia, rural rock and acid-tinged folk was recorded in New York in 1969. The band had come together in Ohio earlier in the decade, rising from the ashes of bands named the Infinite Doorknob and Headstone Circus. Sugar Creek...

"When the Beatles/Stones/Moodys threw down their Magical/Majesties/Lost Chord gauntlet and topped the charts; garage bands everywhere scrambled and struggled with the new sounds. One such band to admirably answer the call was Summerhill. This cd...

"After two albums exploring the boundaries of jazz via the music of Thelonious Monk (Green Chimneys) and Charles Mingus (Peggy's Blue Skylight), ex-Police guitarist Andy Summers returns to original compositions with a new band that moves forward through..

This package includes all of the music originally released on two seperate albums as The Solar Myth Approach, Vol. 1 and The Solar Myth Approach, Vol. 2. A great bargain price on music that remains amazingly 'out' even 40 years later!...

"Synergy shows great creativity and inventive with Games; this album represents the acoustic and aesthetic transition of 70's - 80's electronic music, as well as the first applications of digital synthesizing. Some tracks are somehow catchy (like Delta...

"As a fan of Larry Fast from his "Sequencer" album, I was even more delighted to hear this album. His arrangements are expanded beyond the mere emulation of symphony orchestration through the use of analog and digital synthesis, which offers seemingly...

"There's a lot that's great and some not so great on this compilation. Great as in all the "Delta" titles, the Strausslike waltz "To the Edge and Back" (a rarity not on the regular albums), "Launch At Dawn" (another rarity) and "Metropolitan Theme"....

"Tamam Shud were formed after the break up of beat/R&B band, The Sunsets. The band was ostensibly a vehicle for singer and songwriter Lindsay Bjerre (whose burgeoning interest in the acid rock experience had precipitated The Sunset's demise). Bjerre ...

This was filmed in the USA when the band toured in support of their Rockoon album.

"First time I've ever seen this concert DVD.Not great,but fairly good. Show was taped on October 25,1992 at the Paramount Center in New York. Plenty of beautiful..

"Robin Taylor's '08 ofshoot is his first attempt ever to record an album full of songs (sung by two female vocalists). Among the fine players we find guitarist Michael Denner and drummer Bjarne Holm (both of MERCYFUL FATE fame), bassist Flemming Muus....

"92 album that shows Taylor in his most twisted and experimental shape. Wicked and dark electronical sounds with synths, fretless bass, tapes and diverse instruments. RIO kind of Art-Rock."

Robin Taylor: guitars, keys, bass, percussion etc....

"Taylor's 2006 release is an Art Rock album, that blends Kraut with avant-garde. Very atmospheric, repetitive and - not at least - humorous. A great variety of toy- and 'professional' keyboards go hand in hand with Karsten Vogel's saxophones, together...

"Adventurous and highly experimental avant-prog from Denmark. With Karsten Vogel (BURNIN RED IVANHOE, SECRET OYSTER) on saxes, and Hugh Steinmetz on trumpet - backed by other fine players and lots of electronics."..

"2003 release, and again, this is complex and improvised sounding avant-garde Art Rock style - with keyboards, samples and twisted acid guitars. Very moody - very dark - very ambient - very November ..."

"November is an adventurous disc from...

"2004 album by Danish composer and multi-instrumentalist Robin Taylor and long-time mate Karsten Vogel. A 7-tracker that contains progressive jazz/avant-garde music, filled with beauty. A coherent and impressive album that shows what progressive rock...

Another classic Taylor's Universe album. Trumpeter Hugh Steinmetz plays a key role in this landscape of rock, avant-garde and ambience. Beyond the limits of imagination. 9 tracks of desert soundscapes with lots of effected guitar and trumpet...

"Quite different from Taylor's earlier offerings; this time more calm, hypnotic and even ambient at times. Lots of keyboards, samples and sustained guitars."

Robin Taylor: guitars, keys, percussions etc.
Karsten Vogel: saxophones...

"Who's Next, known as one of the greatest rock albums of all time, was actually the most disappointing failure of Pete Townshend's career. A much more vast and grandiose project called "Lifehouse" had been envisioned, but Townshend couldn't pull it all together, and finally settled for a meager best of Lifehouse collection which was called Who's Next. Pete never finished Lifehouse as a rock opera, but the music remains.
In 2000, he decided to make a decent production of the songs. The result is a...

Baptiste is a rising star of the French jazz scene and has had a few albums also released internationally. He's a great pianist with some superficial similarities to Keith Jarrett (although I don't think he yells at the audience), but he's definitely...

A very special price on Trower's latest album. I saw Trower about two years ago and he really is one of the last of the old-style guitar gods. Gods don't always have to show off their powers and that's very true on this release. It's a relatively laid...

"This is a just a great album to listen to. Weird and wonderful music, executed with joy and precision. There's a lot of power in this music, but it's delivered with such frivolous confidence that you barely notice there's a giant in the room. And as...

"This cd is a showcase for the younger McCoy Tyner's compositional and improvisational styles. It captures this master musician at a crossroads between the harder core modal music that he had been recording with John Coltrane a few years earlier and...

One of my very favorite compilations these days is this circa 1946-1951 collection of be-boppers, proto r'n'b rave-ups, big hornmen and jump swing. This is a fine, fine collection that highlights the great music that Central Avenue in Los Angeles...

"Finally gathered in one place, here are all five volumes of this groundbreaking series of British psych and freakbeat compilations, in a numbered, limited edition. Boasting no fewer than 82 classic tracks, the set spans established classics by...

Great, wide-ranging collection of music from Cuba. This casts a huge net across what we think of as Cuban or Latin music, some of it being what you would expect and much of it being hugely suprising.

"Part of Luaka Bop's Cuba Classics series...

Fantastic heaping helping of blues from Motor City, 1938-1954, Detroit wasn't as famous of a blues town as you might expect from all the talent there and this collection gives you the very best from that city during the time period.

An amazing price on this 14 track/14 artist anthology of women guitarists. Definitely a good number of names that guitar fans have heard of: Wu Man, Sharon Isbin, Patty Larkin, Memphis Minnie, Mimi Fox, Kaki King, Ellen McIlwaine, Badi Assad, Alex...

If you love/follow jazz of the 40s, you eventually end up here, if you didn't start here: with an appreciation and understanding of how the Hispanic (mostly Cuban, but others as well) residents of NYC mixed with the emerging boppers in the 40s and came...

Uncle Steve is once more trying to expand the horizons of some of his little charges... This is an excellent 14 track album of traditional music from Latvia, from the former Soviet Union. "The songs collected here, played on traditional zither, bagpipes..

Great price on this 3 CD box of just marvelous blues performances by some of the greatest names who were still alive and kicking at the time they were recorded; it doesn't get much better than Misssissippi John Hurt, Son House, Skip James, Muddy Waters...

"A lot more interesting than the first volume. From the odd spoken word pieces by Ken Nordine and Del Close, to the creepy Christian puppetry of Marcy and the odd transfiguration of nursery rhymes into a horror soundtrack on Les Baxter's "Terror" it...

While they last, this is $6.00 (1/3rd off) the usual price!

This is a collection of interpretations of songs by various Italian artists of works by Stormy Six. There is almost no information about this album on the web and what little there is...

Fine compilation (with a sprinkling of previously unreleased material as well) from the Vanguard catalog of 1960s and 1950s recordings. The set is divided into 3 sets: "Folk Blues", "Delta & Country Blues" and "Urban Blues". Some (not all, but a good...

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, proto-rock 'n' roll/rhythm & blues, basic repertoire material.

"Great compilation of 40's big band...

"Violeta de Outono┬┤s seventh studio album, "Volume 7" brings a totally renewed sound, featuring Hammond Organ and analog timbres. Recorded live in the studio, this album introduces new members Fernando Cardoso (keyboards) and Gabriel Costa (bass) along...

Doc Watson with just an acoustic guitar and his voice, captured very early in his career in 1962-63. This is great American roots music, pure and simple.

For more than 50 years, Mike Westbrook has been composing and releasing albums of his unique take on 'jazz'. An exemplary and distinctive composer, he is one of the true pillars of what we consider the 'Brit-jazz' sound and he is still going strong and releasing good work!
He was also one o

A great album available for $10.00 (over 40%) off the usual price, while these copies last!

Originally released 20 years ago and then immediately deleted, I've had this for years and am very happy to be able to offer it. Recorded live directly...

When I went to London in 1977, I saw the Mike Westbrook Brass Band play on the street and they were amazing. I came back from that trip a huge fan and tried to find as much as I could by this great British composer and musician - one of the original...
