P.F.M.'s brilliant first album from '71. If you don't own this album, this is one of the great Italian progressive/symphonic efforts of all time (beaten only by their 2nd!)

"On their first album of new material since 1991, The Well's on Fire is a return to form for Procol Harum. The band has shed most of the production gloss that dated The Prodigal Stranger and gets back to a beefier rock-based sound, resulting in their...

This is, essentially, Pip's only solo album, as all the other albums under his name were basically bands or collaborative projects. So, this was his show and he did somethings that people weren't expecting. If you knew Pip and his humor, you won't find...

While they last, this is $7.00 off the regular price!

Written by Gilbert Artman (Lard Free, Urban Sax), Quad Sax is a miniature distillation of the ideas of Urban Sax; 4 saxophones playingspacey, hocket- riddled music with some percussives...

"Legendary Japanese rock outfit Les Rallizes Denudés were formed in 1967 and incredibly, for a group that had only one official release (Oz Days Live, a double vinyl compilation release in 1973), played their last gig almost 30 years later in October...

First album by a UK proto-progressive outfit that was released in the fall of 1970. Their second album, Time Is, is a minor classic and this isn't as good, but if you want more by them and you dig that 1970 exploratory vibe...

Exact miniature replica of the LP, limited edition 1,500 copies. This 1968 album is about as far out as music got in the rock world at that time other than a very few other, more famous examples, so it's worth hearing for that reason alone. But beyond...

Decent, listenable, but still very bootleg-quality live recording by this short-lived classical rock trio. If you know and love them, this is worth your nickel, especially as the band plays well and it includes some unreleased material, a good essay...

First album in almost 2 decades from this Polish avant band. "Reportaz - established 1982 in Poznan, Poland by Andrzej Karpinski and Piotr Lakomy. The name and idea came from Karpinski who created most of the music and lyrics. The group has emerged fro...

This is a very good price on the limited edition, hard-bound book edition of this 2006 release by The Residents that includes a larger booklet than comes with the jewel box edition. Pretty wild and disturbing imagery and concept; the parental advisory...

"Making contemporary progressive rock, using the instruments and sounds of the golden era in progressive music, was the main idea behind the Retroheads concept. It started out as one mans dream about a band that could tribute the free spirits of the...

"Now here's a tribute album with a twist... Riley & Co. play the music of Thelonious Monk in a pianoless septet. Instead of having a pianist do a second rate Monk imitation, 4 horns and a guitar are used to reproduce Monk's inimitable piano voicings...

Third solo album by the instrumental force behind Mars Volta, this is the most 'band-sounding' solo album he's done so far, with most of Mars Volta appearing on it somewhere....

AKA 'two high guys making some noise.'
"The self-titled collaborative album between Omar Rordriguez Lopez (of The Mars Volta) and his late band mate, Jeremy Michael Ward, will come as something of a departure for fans of Rodriguez Lopez's vast...

This 1956 release finds Sonny with a great band, including my perennial favorite under acknowledged trumpeter Kenny Dorham plus pianist Wade Legge, bassist George Morrow and always excellent drummer Max Roach. This features a 27' medley of Charlie...

"Now in his mid-70s, Sonny Rollins plays with undiminished passion on this, his first new studio recordings in five years. Sonny, Please also marks a turning point in Rollins's life: his wife died in 2004, and he soon thereafter departed Milestone...

While they last, this is $6.00 off the usual price. And it's a great album.

I've been following the work and albums of composer and pianist Michele Rosewoman for 20 years, ever since hearing her album "Quintessence" and it blowing me away....

Led by bassist Jorge Lopez Ruiz, this 1972 session shows the influence that the jazz/rock and electric jazz had throughout the jazz world. This formerly quite rare (and soon to be rare again, as it is out of print) album has Argentinian musicians, far...

"Todd Rundgren's Utopia Live At Hammersmith Odeon 75 captures the iconic progressive rock band performing their first UK concert. While the concert recording has long been a fan favorite, it has never been commercially available until now."...

This is a very electronic, laptop-based rendition of this seminal classic and very adaptable work. Very spacey, low-key ambiance gives this a feel like Klaus Schulze and Radio Massacre International doing their version of this great piece! Beautifully...

Great price on a appealing trio set performed on violin (Ric Sanders, known for his long tenure in Fairport Convention as well as for his short but tasty tenure in Soft Machine), guitar (Vo Fletcher) and percussion (Michael Gregory). This has a wide...

"This slice of classic Californian acid sunshine pop, originally recorded in 1969, is finally available on CD again."

"A surprisingly good CA-sounding melodic harmony psych trip, instantly likeable and strong enough to hold your attention for...

"This is the third of three CDs compiled from a two-night (July 10 and 11, 1973) stand at Keystone Korners in Berkeley. These recordings have likewise yielded a pair of additional volumes -- all of which stem from the original Live at Keystone (1973)...

Out of print for years and at a great price!

Yochk'o first came to attention as a member of Magma, and then as a founding member of Zao. After leaving Zao, he made a number of notable solo albums, of which these are two. Adama & Ima are both...

"Superb live recordings (dated July 18 and July 20, 1970) captured in France at the Antibes-Juan Le Pen Jazz Festival. Archie Shepp and the Full Moon Ensemble (featuring Clifford Thornton on piano and trumpet, Beb Guerin on bass and Claude Delcloo...

"SHOW-YEN is a Japanese band led by guitarist-composer Yasuhiro NISHIO, that has existed as an instrumental trio since 1998. Its other members are bassist Hiroaki FUJII and drummer Masanobu TONOMURA. Their eponymous concept-album (2003) is actually...

This is the very surprising 1997 regrouping (after their last recordings together - a single - almost 20 years before) of the original trio of Peter Blegvad, Anthony Moore and Dagmar Krause.

Great, clever lyrics combine with catchy, more-than...

In May, 2000, hot on the heels of their excellent (if a bit over-produced) reunion album Ça Va, Slapp Happy embarked on their first ever tour of Japan. The original trio of Dagmar Krause (vocals), Peter Blegvad (guitar, vocals) and Anthony Moore (piano...

While they last, this is $8.00 off the original price! Third release by this interesting group who combine modern classical with rock and post-rock.Third release by this interesting group who combine modern classical with rock and post-rock. Funnily...

"Recorded in Los Angeles over four months in 1970, this double album is one of the most personal and involving statements to have emerged from California's psychedelic underground. Backed by a fine band including Daryl Dragon (later to find fame as...

The 2nd of 2 albums by this studio project.
"A curiously fascinating album drawn from tape collages and samples, built in the studio by tape wizard Rik Rue and musician Shane Fahey (of the Australian band the Makers of the Dead Travel Fast). Fahey...

Now out of print. Final copies.
Decent sounding (but unfortunately not as good as it could have been as it was not made using the best available source tapes) document of an entire gig by the short-lived quintet lineup (Hugh, Mike, Robert, Elton...

These are the famous (& rather famously disowned by all participants) Giorgio Gomelski deomos from April, 1967, which represent the only recordings by the original quartet formation of the band other than their single: Daevid Allen-guitar, Kevin Ayers-...

Very interesting, but really, really poor sonic quality release by the Ayers/Ratlege/Wyatt trio featuring five tracks from the Concertebouw 12/10/67, one wild organ solo from the month before and the entire show from Col Ballroom in Davenport Iowa from...

Special while they last! This is $6.00 off the usual price! Toti is a Spanish guitarist who was fronting the experimental early 70’s group OM (band which actually accompanied Pau Riba on his legendary Dioptria album). After OM, he released some solo...

TONS of extras on this(see below). IMPORTANT: These are cut-out copies and all copies are cut. Some are heavily notched and some are notched more 'lightly', but all are definitely marked. Even so, this is a great price on a great set.

Fourth album by this Quebecois rock/fusion outfit who knocked a lot of folks' socks off at Nearfest 2002. Led by monster bassist Antoine Fafard, this is a bit heavier than their earliest works, as the band have essentially turned into a power trio of...

"Recorded live in 2006 at the Crescendo Festival in France, this new Spaced Out Enhanced CD contains their memorable first concert in Europe during the Unstable Matter Tour in 2006. With 4 Studio albums, one live DVD, this new Live CD is a great way to...

"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...
