Rob is the leader and main composer of the very excellent Wei Zhongle. This solo album features him as a 'multi-dimensional multi-instrumentalist sings ethereal folk ballads with a voice defiant of taditional Western tones."

"Black vinyl LP in electric mango jacket with UV gloss coating over opalescent grey portrait, includes IARC obi strip and dome pattern inner sleeve. LP insert contains lyrics and credits with doodles by Rob Jacobs."

Vinyl version in very groovy gimmick sleeve!

This is an extremely high-quality, vinyl version of this great album; it came out beautifully! It includes a download coupon for the digital version of the music. Limited edition, one time-only pressing of 500 copies, but 200 went directly to the band...

Janel and Anthony burst upon most folk's consciousness with the release in 2012 of "Where Is Home" on Cuneiform. But they have been working as a duo for a very long time, and this reissues their 1st album, recorded in 2006 and released by the group...

"In December 1979, two Art Ensemble Of Chicago members -- Joseph Jarman and Don Moye, along with the great South African bassist Johnny Dyani -- gathered together under the name of Black Paladins. Inspired by the words of the great black poet Henry...

"Considered as the first piece of electronic music to accompany a ballet, Totentanz is the arrestingly abstract and mightily expressive result of Warner Jepson’s experiments with tape and Don Buchla’s groundbreaking synthesizer, the Buchla 100. Totentanz, originally self-released in 1972, reveals a composer relieved of convention.
In the 1950s and 1960s, Jepson was part of an informal circle of Bay Area artists that included Pauline Oliveros, Terry Riley, La Monte Young, Morton Subotnick and Steve ...

Jody Grind was an early British progressive / proto-progressive quartet who recorded two excellent albums in 1969/1970 for Transatlantic. This is their 2nd and it includes a bonus track.

"By the beginning of 1970, Jody Grind had settled to a new line up of Tim Hinkley, guitarist and vocalist Bernie Holland and drummer Pete Gavin. Recorded in the early months of 1970, the band’s second album, “Far Canal” was a fine work. The quality of material such as ‘We’ve Had It’, ‘Jump Bed Jed’ and...

"Trost present Schraubenlieder, unreleased songs by Sven-Ake Johansson and Alexander von Schlippenbach from 1988, recorded by Radio DRS Bern."

I saw Chuck Johnson perform about a year and a half ago and he was really teriffic. He was doing the post John Fahey thing, except he was doing it on an electric guitar (not just an electric guitar, but a Fender Telecaster) and making it work and carefully also using pedals to give what he was doing it's own flavor and bite.
This new one is really different from what I saw, but it's of equal quality and guitar heads will enjoy another release from what seems to be a pretty endless seam of...

Glenn is one of the pioneers of the wave of acoustic players who emerged post-Takoma Records in the 90s. He’s always a great listen!

“The Giant Who Ate Himself And Other New Works For 6 & 12 String Guitar is Glenn Jones at his most vivid, exploring memories old and new through beautifully woven threads of melody. His unparalleled skill and creativity exhibits the mastery Jones possesses of his craft, further cementing his position as a pillar in American Primitive guitar music. Recorded in New....

"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 of Fevergreens, an album that drew upon classic progressive rock, film music, easy listening, and a variety of pop idioms and featured a nine-piece...

Extremely good, modern Scandinavian progrock, with a lot of inspiration from the good ol' days.
The band released four cassette-only compilations; the first 3 of which were releawed on a double lp, which gained a LOT of attention and this, their fourth and most recently cassette release came out in 2017, but is getting a 'proper' release now.

"Years ago I failed to give proper attention to Scandinavian bands, but after all the marvelous music that came from that region, never made that...

"Minne was the fourth LP by Joy Unlimited from Mannheim; it was recorded in 1974 and released in 1975. It is, as its forerunners �Schmetterlinge� and �Reflections�, a ballet work with progressive music, this time sung in Middle High German. With every...

"Their second album "Schmetterlinge" (Butterfly) was an odd album for the Pilz label, originally released in 1971, a complex and ambitious conceptual rock ballet suite performed by a larger much more multi-instrumental ensemble. It ran a wide gamut of...

"Issued in 1972, Jumbo�s debut album � at the time it was a pseudonym used by songwriter Alvaro Fella � saw the light on an important record label, Philips, following the release of two 45rpm�s by Lucio Battisti�s Numero Uno.
