This beautiful, legit reissue includes a gatefold sleeve!

One of the progressive hard rock classics of the early 70s German scene, this was the 2nd and final release by this German band, originally released on Brain in 1972....

Being a humongous fan of Gong in high school and discovering them just about the time that Daevid left and they imploded, my sorrow was great. But only a couple of years after they broke up they had the first (of what would be many, many) reunion, but this one was special as it featured the entirety of the 'classic' line up of the band that recorded Angel's Egg and You, which were keystone records of my listening at that time. Being a twerp kid and this being before the instantaneous internet told you...

"Inspired by the light, love and passing of our dear friend and inspiration, Daevid Allen."-Dave Sturt

Could it happen? Should it happen?
Daevid wanted it to happen, so, yes. It should.

"Featuring the voice of Daevid Allen on two songs and guest appearances from Steve Hillage and Didier Malherbehe, Rejoice! I'm Dead! is the 2016 release (and 28th album) from the enduring legend that is Gong.
Gong has entered yet another new phase in its four-decades plus journey with Rejoice!...

Some of you may remember Delia Gonzalez from "The Days Of Mars", her joint work with Gavin Russom, which is a great, modern day electronic music album that channels 1971-1975 but in an original way and think: Mother Mallard's Portable Masterpiece Co. (that's the main sound I hear), Klaus Schulze, Tangerine Dream, Manuel Gottsching.
After a very long time off and one solo piano album, she's back with this, a similar electronic album and one that is also hugely recommended by me if you like the 1st two..

"Peter Van Huffel’s journey through the combination of jazz and rock, alien to the fusion tradition of the seventies and the collage of the nineties, proceeds with yet another opus from the Gorilla Mask gang, as always inclusive of the mindblowing rhythm section of Roland Fidezius and Rudi Fischerlehner. “Brain Drain” is a mishmash of punk, metal, jazz, free i

"After the broad success of “Bite My Blues”, Canadian saxophonist Peter Van Huffel’s Berlin band Gorilla Mask is back with more music; not to cover the foot imprints of his previous work but going beyond a good number of steps. You can’t say anymore that this project consists of a mix of jazz with punk and metal – the kind of sonic assault heard on “Iron Lung” has an identity of its own, inc

"Gösta Berlings Saga from Stockholm, Sweden return with their sixth studio album. “Konkret Musik” contains 12 explosive tracks filled with experimental instrumental rock, showcasing a truly unique mix of progressive rock, synth minimalism and otherworldly melodies. Dystopian yet hopeful, maximal yet minimal: “Konkret Musik” will not leave anyone unaffected.”

The long-awaited fourth release by this excellent, modern avant/progressive rock band. This is highly recommended to everyone who has been following them since their first great release, Detta Har Hänt, as well as fans of dark-hued, instrumental rock, such as Guapo, Corima, Makajodoma, etc.

Equipment: Korg MS-10, Korg MS-20, Korg SQ-Sequencer, Korg Vocoder, Roland SH-01, Teac stereo tape deck.

Performed and recorded live in San Francisco, CA, USA 1982. Total running time, about 22 minutes.

"From an obscure tape release discovery, this 12" highlights the work of electronic music pioneer Joel Graham, a San Francisco based artist who self-released two cassettes in 1984/85. Originally recorded and performed live on pre-MIDI analog equipment in 1982 as an outline for a live p

Another very strong release 'rock/electric jazz/avant-progressive/call it anything' release from Rune Gramofon who are definitely on a roll these days. Then again, they have one of the most fertile contemporary scenes to draw on (their home turf in...

Here’s what YOU need to know: Le Grand Sbam is the latest from the amazing Lyon, France scene, and features two classically trained female vocalists + the great trio POIL + a vibraphonist/percussionist. Bang. Done!

Grand Sbam is a collective of creation, research and musical experimentation that defends living music in all its richness, complexity and universality. It brings together professional musicians from multiple and complementary traditions and practices (learned and popular, current and..

"The first few months of 1970 were tumultuous for the Grateful Dead. They had been all over the country, from the Fillmore East to Hawaii and back, by way of New Orleans and St. Louis. They had fired their organ player, fired their manager, hired a new road manager and recorded an album. By 8th March, they had already played 34 shows. As near as anyone can tell, the sessions for Workingman's Dead were 16 - 19th February and then 9 - 16th March, when the basic tracks were completed. What has come to be...

"When David Greenberger first embarked on what has become a life-long journey, drummer Chris Corsano was not yet five years old! In 1979, after graduating from art school in Boston, Greenberger took the job of activities director at the Duplex Nursing Home, an all-male elder care facility in Jamaica Plain, Massachusetts, and began collecting the stories, poems and music reviews of its aged patients for what became his Duplex Planet project, an undertaking that would eventually encompass nearly 200 issues...

"Greenslade had split up in 1975 but Dave Greenslade had already written in effect a new album of music and he was ready to make another album. Assembling a cast of stellar musicians he recorded "Cactus Choir" which was released in 1976 to worldwide critical acclaim.

"Dave Greenslade's first solo album is a big improvement over the last several records of his former band Greenslade. Not only is Cactus Choir comparable in quality to earlier Greenslade releases like Bedside Manners Are Extra, it...

Dominique Grimaud has long been involved in interesting, experimental rock in the French music scene (on Guigou Chenevier's solo albums, with Video Aventures and with the legendary, early 70's group Camizole!
!
“Dominique Grimaud makes you listen to the The Beatles, The Rolling Stones, Pink Floyd, and many more artists from the 1960s, like you never hear before. The title says it all: 19 Feedbacks. French multi-instrumentalist and sound-experimentalist Dominique Grimaud dives into his adolescence...

“Following his seminal release Sand in 1977, Swedish experimental composer Ragnar Grippe worked on various art and performance commissions, often returning to Stockholm during the summer months to focus his efforts on his compositional practice. It was there at the famed EMS Studios where he began employing the Buchla synthesizer and the facilities multi-tracking capabilities as new instruments to map his mining of sound and movement.
During the late 1970's, Grippe formed a creative collaboration....

“First ever reissue of this ultra-rare acetate from 1972, Grit's self-titled album. Featured in Hans Pokora's book with the maximum scale rarity. Psychedelic hard-rock with furious drumming and stunning lead guitar by this unknown until now London based band.
Includes the four tracks from the original acetate (taken from the master tape) plus two bonus tracks taken from lo-fi, crude rehearsals: "1000 Miles" (a Grit original) and a killer demo version of "Mineshaft".
Born from the ashes of a...

Legit reissue from Brain / Universal. Many consider this, their fourth studio album,to be one of their main classics.

"Grobschnitt were one of the crop of German bands that fell into the Krautrock category, mixing progressive rock influences with improvisational elements and humour to create a very compelling brand of music. The irreverence was evident in their music, but not at the cost of technical and compositional proficiency. All the musicians were masters of their instruments, and created...

Beautiful, new replica edition of this great, classic German symphonic rock release. The band's fifth album, and one that a good number of people consider to be the greatest live progressive rock album ever made!

"The German group Grobschnitt were one of the more famous bands from the classic 70's Krautrock era. They had a long and varied history that spanned over 20 years and were quite popular in their native Germany. Their music was characterized by theatrical sequences, space rock jamming...

"Tired of the rock format and excited by the freedoms promised by electronic music, Harald Grosskopf quit Wallenstein, a conventional rock band, in the mid-'70s to turn his attention to electronica. Grosskopf thus became the first drummer to specialize...

"Harald Grosskopf played drums on the early Klaus Schulze albums and recorded thirteen albums with Ash Ra Tempel. His solo works, 1980's Synthesist and 1986's Oceanheart, are outstanding releases of the German electronic music scene.

Long-time Waysiders will remember us having this on vinyl on the Soviet Melodiya label (the only label allowed within the USSR). Now you can get it in a much, much better pressing!

"Bureau B presents a reissue of Sven Gr�nberg's Hingus, originally released in 1981. Sven Gr�nberg is a famous musician for film and theatre in Estonia - an old hand in the field of electronic ambient music. In 1974, whilst still a music student, he and H�rmo H�rm founded Mess, a progressive rock band. Gr�nberg was the..

Georges Grunblatt was an early member of Heldon, appearing on Allez Teia.
This rarity, which came out on French Polydor in 1980 and which has never-before been reissued in any format, is his only solo work, and is very much in the Heldon vein musically (in a kind of post-Allez Teia trippy vein) with lots of Heldon tie-ins. This appears to be a legit reissue as best as I can tell. Recorded at Ramses Studio in 1977, the engineers were Jean-Louis Rizet and Richard Pinhas.
And look at the credits.

The first vinyl reissue for this somewhat obscure title and a beautiful cover, originally released on EMI/Harvest in 1972.

"This band with a strange name and an unusual line-up is still less-known to many italian prog experts, yet their only album is surprisingly good and has very interesting moments. The weakest point is the singer's voice, squeaky and monotonous and with some spoken parts to connect the musical themes, but musically the band is competent and the album reveals some jazz-rock...

This is an extremely high-quality vinyl version of this great album with a heavy and totally stunning gatefold sleeve that cost a fortune to produce; I gotta say that it came out beautiful! It includes a download coupon for the digital version of the...


“The official reissue of super-rare and fabled prog-rock/library/synth album L'Univers De La Mer by French composer Dominique Guiot.
Written, composed and played by Dominique Guiot with his Mellotron, Minimoog, clavinet, organ, and guitar, L'Univers De La Mer draws its inspiration from deep sea exploration, oceanic creatures, and underwater kingdoms.
The 12-track album navigates organically through diverse mutations of the prog-rock and synth kind, from scenic meditation pieces...

"Swedish multi-instrumentalist Rikard Sjöblom is pleased to announce his new album under the Gungfly moniker, ‘Alone Together’. It follows an extremely productive past few years, whether it be working with English progressive rockers Big Big Train, or taking the lead with Gungfly.
Rikard comments: “I started writing these songs about a year ago but then it took some time to get started with the production because I had two tours lined up, one with Big Big Train in November and then opening solo for...

"The fourth studio album from Rikard Sjöblom (Big Big Train, Beardfish) in his Gungfly guise.
Rikard comments, “Musically, what can I say? This is Prog, but I want to be free to move in whatever direction the music wants to go and I happily go exploring where it wants to take me. Even though there are a few softer songs and sections, most of the album turned out to be a rocker; a collection of hard rock songs with lots of tricky parts, some heavier moments and some downright jazzy elements too!”

"You might know Rikard Sjöblom as the mutli-instrumentalist madman behind the microphone of the now-legendary Beardfish, who sang about everything from personal loss to dreams of sneaking into the backstreets of some sleazy '70s disco club. Wielding his keyboard like an 88-key progressive rock machine gun and a shoulder-slung guitar much in the same manner, Sjöblom truly was the face of the band. Beardfish came to an end in 2016, leaving room for new solo endeavors for Sjöblom.
With the same array...

An excellent sounding period recording from their 10/25/70 performance at the Essen Pop & Blues Festival. This is just after their great 1st album UFO was released, and captures them at an early, heady peak; imagine the furthest out that a power trio could've gone at this time and with the equipment available, and you have Guru Guru as heard here.
This is by the original trio: Ax Genrich, Mani Neumeier and Uli Trepte. Magnificent!

This is a high quality, beautiful, official, gatefold version of Guru Guru's stunning debut, released by the original label!

"Two very different musicians from the wide range of the jazz spectrum, Mats Gustafsson and Craig Taborn played together just once, for the 2015 edition of the Ljubljana Jazz Festival, and that explains the chosen title of this LP. The meeting seemed improbable, but in what concerns improvisation, if the protagonists are committed explorers of spontaneity anything can happen, even the most extraordinary music. That was the case – the...

Great first album by the fine keyboard man of Wigwam, & the man pretty much responsible for their "Being" album. This 1978 release was his first after leaving Wigwam, & it is a richly orchestrated progressive classic, featuring a 12 piece band + guests.

"Our authorized reissue of early Wigwam leader Gustavson’s solo debut from 1978 (originally on Love Records) comes with a facsimile of the original booklet plus new liner notes by Mikael Wiik and also a fresh interview with Gustavson himself...

3rd solo album, from 1981, by the former keyboardist of Wigwam who contributed so much to their sound up to Being. This has a pretty good sized band, & includes Pekka Nylund & Seppo Tyni on guitars.
Kinda a progressive/fusion sound with vocals; it's very obviously the work of the man who wrote/co-wrote many of those great Wigwam tunes, as you can hear it in the melodies he does here.

"Our authorised reissue of early Wigwam leader Gustavson’s 3rd solo from 1981 (originally on Ponsi Records).

"Our authorised reissue of early Wigwam leader Gustavson’s 2nd solo work from 1979 (originally on Kerberos Records) comes with a facsimile of the original printed insert plus new liner notes by Mikael Wiik and also a fresh interview with Gustavson himself.
As Jukka’s work with Wigwam attests, his music was always complex and demanding – but, it more often than not incorporated a totally infectious groove. On his second album Valon vuoksi (-79) he moved even further away from his earlier influences...

"The notion that Jochen Irmler and Gudrun Gut would one day merge the best of their two worlds was never quite to be expected. We hear Irmler's meandering, wistfully psychedelic organ sound, seeming to come from a different era. And we hear Gut's...
