Originally released on the Turtle label, and making its first-ever vinyl reissue here, Flight must be considered one of Howard Riley’s most important documents. Recorded in 1971, the music represents a transitional period in Howard’s trio sound, this session also includes the input of Tony Oxley’s electronic frame and amplification and Barry Guy’s amplifier and foot pedal.

"...in the course of one improvisation we can use instrumental sounds traditionally association with music, or sounds....


"Recorded live in Munich in 1982 using two Prophet synthesizers and voice, this album is a reflection of Riley's ongoing interest in melding improvisation, electronic music, and the raga vocal stylings of his mentor, Pandit Pran Nath."

"His voice twists and curves in complicated arabesques, recalling Indian music, and especially the singing of Mr. Riley's colleague and teacher, Pandit Pran Nath, who is also associated with Mr. Riley's long-time friend LaMonte Young. The synthesizers create a...

Rimarimba was the project of Robert Cox from the UK who released several cassette and/or lp releases in the 80s. Until now, none of his work has been reissued; I have one of his original albums which I’ve treasured since I found it 35 years ago! His work as Rimarimba is a cross between systems music/minimalism and spacey/trancey sounds.
This is really superior stuff and if you sound intrigued, by the short description I gave it, you are going to love this!

“Möbius are known for being true to the original progressive rock philosophy, combining 60’s/70’s instruments with the old art of tape recording, adding their own touch of musical creative madness. The Norwegian trio delivers their second album “The 3rd Majesty” in mesmerising manner - a Hammond-driven progressive pearl which could just as easily have been released in 1971 as in 2020.
This epic record includes lengthy opuses - incorporating instruments such as tubular bells, theremin, a string...

"Drauf Und Dran is meant as a milestone and a guidepost, as a kind of musical peephole through the 'iron' curtain of what is familiar, perfected and conventional in music and into a sound universe that has officially only yet been explored cursorily."-Roedelius

“Hans-Joachim Roedelius is a pioneer in in the field of electronic music. He explains Drauf Und Dran: "The tracks released on this album originate from various creative periods of my career. They were recorded while I played Bösendorfer...

"180 gram vinyl pressing. Bureau B presents Flieg Vogel fliege by Hans-Joachim Roedelius, released by Sky Records in 1982. Flieg Vogel fliege (trans. "Fly Bird Fly") is the fifth installment of the "Selfportrait" series, with musical sketches and ideas...

"Originally released in 1991 on the Italian label Materiali Sonori. In classical music, "pp" (piano piano = pianissimo) is a dynamic indication of particularly soft music. And Piano Piano is a very soft, quiet album. Roedelius assumes the role of a...

“The first part of Hans-Joachim Roedelius's Selbstportrait (Self-Portrait) series was originally released under the title Sanfte Musik on Sky Records in 1979. Now, some forty years later, a new instalment has arrived in the form of an album entitled Wahre Liebe.
One of the initiators of the Berlin Zodiak Free Arts Lab in 1967, Roedelius went on to co-found Kluster/Cluster and Harmonia, unleashing a new and free form of music which, with the benefit of hindsight, can be considered a milestone in the...

"The long overdue reissue of Selbstportr�t III/Reise durch Arcadien closes a gap in the Roedelius oeuvre which his followers have long since had their eyes on. Those who found the self-portrait series irresistible had to endure a lengthy, impatient...

“During the legendary Forst years, Roedelius had a private workspace with a Farfisa organ, a Revox-A77 tape machine, an echo device and a synthesizer which he borrowed from the Cluster studio next door now and again. Here he experimented, practiced, allowed his imagination to flow, at any hour of the day or night, whenever he was not in the studio with Dieter Moebius and/or Michael Rother at work on new Cluster or Harmonia material.
Roedelius always let the tape run, in order to analyze the ideas...

"The eleventh solo album by German keyboardist Hans-Joachim Roedelius, originally released in 1986 on the small Norwegian label Cicada. If we can agree on 1969 as the year of Cluster's inception, then Roedelius needed a good 17 years to discover the...

"To anybody with the slightest interest in electronic music and krautrock Hans-Joachim Roedelius needs no introduction. As founding member of Kluster (with Conrad Schnitzler and Dieter Moebius; continued as Cluster after Schnitzler's departure) and...

"11 unreleased compositions by Hans-Joachim Roedelius produced between 1990 and 2001. All of them are pearls of electronic deepness that show another side of the man that lives in the little Lower Austrian town Baden. His famous ultra-sweet piano melodies

Tom Rogerson's life as an improviser began when, as a toddler, he would clamber up onto his family piano stool and try to emulate his sister's playing. Now releasing his second solo album, a collaboration with Brian Eno, he feels that his musical life has come full circle: "I remember smashing out C Major chords again and again and really loving it. It's the same as what I do now, funnily enough, I've come back to it". After stints playing jazz in New York, a delipadated fenland hotel and in noise rock...

"Take Root Among the Stars", quoting the words of the great science fiction writer Octavia Butler, here is Roots Magic's third installment for Clean Feed. Cut by the Italian quartet, here and there augmented by a couple of special guests, historical wind player Eugenio Colombo and vibes maestro Francesco Lo Cascio, this new album comes as a further step into the borderland between Deep Blues and Creative Jazz.
The new repertoire includes reworked tunes by Skip James, Kalaparusha Maurice McIntyre...

There are a lot of younger guitarists mining the 'American primitive guitar' esthetic right now, some of them adding very modern things to it and some of them playing it rather straight. Of all these (very fine) players, I have yet to hear one who nail...

“Jack Rose is remembered and reveared for his innovation in contemporary guitar music. His influence had only just begun to take flight before his unexpected death in December of 2009, right before the release of what sadly was to be his final album, Luck in the Valley. Still, his music and influence, much like his person, bold, hearty, and rooted in traditional American music continues to be a source of reference for guitarists and musicians carrying traditional American music into modern times.”

“First new album (vinyl-only except in the ‘Solo Box II’) from Michael Rother (NEU!, Harmonia) in 14 years! “

Guitarist Michael Rother is a very important part of some of the most exciting and influential music to emerge from the exciting and influencial German Krautrock scene. He was a founding member of the hugely influential Neu!, played for a short while in Kraftwerk (between their first and second album) and joined forces with Cluster to form Harmonia. After Harmonia disbanded in 1976, he started a solo career and this 1982 release was his fourth.

"After issuing his classic third album...

“In June 2020 Michael Rother packed the trunk of his car full, making sure to include a selection of his favorite instruments and other effects, and set out on a trip from Bevern-Forst, where he has lived on an old farm since 1973, spending a half a century writing momentous pieces of music history, at times solo, and at others in collaboration with other artists (Hans Joachim Roedelius, Dieter Moebius, Brian Eno et al.)
His two-day drive took him to Pisa, but it was not a vacation. Rother will stay..

“Rough & Wojtyla Featuring Richard Pinhas is Rough & Wojtyla's second album.
Richard Pinhas, the founder of '70s legends Heldon is one of France's best known experimental musicians and is a key figure in the fusion of rock with electronic music. Drones are supported by a tentative jazz drum beat and Pinhas's guitar. In perfect harmony, the three musicians don't take themselves seriously. They saturate their sonic world with long abstruse silences, before returning more furiously into the barely...

Nearly 30 year old 'new old' stock, from the back of our warehouse! Even though these are cheap, it really is (a) great and (b) long out of print. A great, lost Cuneiform release, never on CD and not likely to ever be on CD!

Since everything old is new again, and since we've been selling a lot of vinyl recently and I was poking around in the back of the warehouse, I found these brand new, still sealed, perfect copies of Cuneiform #13, which was never reissued on lp or CD; you can buy mp3s of it...

This copy is new and sealed and perfect EXCEPT that there is a crease to the jacket. Not too bad, but enough that you get more than 25% off of this copy!

This is the English language version of the 1973 album Contaminazione.

"The classical influence behind RDM became even more apparent on Contaminazione (1973), vaguely based on parts of Bach's harpsichord pieces, this is a consistently convincing album of this type."-Scented Gardens Of The Mind.

"...In 1973 a fifth member was added, keyboard player Franco Di Sabbatino, also from Pescara, like Pino Ballarini, and briefly with Il Paese dei Balocchi. With their sound enriched by the...

"The masters of Italian progressive hard rock formed in Rome in 1971. Io Come Io (1972) was an even better work (than La Bibbia) with crisper production. The interplay between wah-wah guitar and fuzz bass all over the place is simply incredible. The slightly baroque melody lines (like those of Bach) are played with such force you'd hardly recognize these classical sources. This may be the best hard rock or heavy progressive album to come out of Italy...."-Scented Gardens Of The Mind.

"The only recordings (from 1970) by the forerunners of great Krautrock band Eulenspygel; this material is from their transitional phase, as they made their weird way from beat/r&b to psychedelia; long tracks sung in English, all from the original mastertapes.
A great German group. One of the most oft-requested older Garden of Delights titles. This wonderful edition contains an LP-sized 12-page insert. Limited to 1000 hand-numbered copies."

"Tales From Outer Space", the tenth studio album by RPWL, the subtle art rockers from Freising, entered various charts, reached a remarkable 49th place in the German album charts and successfully put science fiction at the centre of seven great songs. This was followed by a fantastic tour in April 2019 from Glasgow via Warsaw to Basel, France and Germany with many full and sold out houses.
But most important for the band was the enthusiastic feedback from the fans, who unanimously spoke of the "best..

Martin Rude (Sun River) and Jakob Skøtt (Causa Sui) team up for a genre-defying record that was recorded during an exceptional session on March 3rd, 2020. Martin brought his double bass, acoustic and baritone guitar into the studio of Causa Sui, where Jakob's drums were already miked and prepped by soundwiz Jonas Munk, freshly tuned from the new Causa Sui recordings.
The music they played ranges from sprawled out pre-fusion electric jazz to psychedelic folk ragas. After the sessions, the hours of...

I would basically agree with everything in the review below about this excellent and raw early progressive album, although I don't really think they sound so much like Tull at all - maybe a bit like This Was era, but just a bit...

Really pleasing and pleasant, while still musically vigorous combination of rock, jazz (especially John Hollenbeck) and progressive elements with systems music composed for a 12 piece ensemble. If reading the previous sentence makes it sound like this is your thing, then this is your thing!

"On Reflections, Philipp Rumsch explores the reduction of sound and its alteration through compositional parameters, the use and gradual overlaying of repetitive structures of rhythms like patterns or grooves...

“Following the February 1975 release of their classic second album, Fly By Night, Rush embarked on a massive American tour. The remarkable show captured on this set had especial significance, as Cleveland was the first US market the trio ever broke.
Broadcast on the local WMMS FM, it is presented in its entirety here, it includes numerous tracks from Fly By Night, as well as a superb cover of Larry Williams classic Bad Boy. Its a vital document of the band at their early best, and is presented here...

About 20’ of great music!

“The George Russell Sextet caught in a rare live recording from a concert held at Music Inn, in Lenox Massachusetts on September 1, 1960. George Russell's kaleidoscopic sound conception takes shape through the collective interplay of a brilliant tight band featuring George Russell himself on piano, Al Kiger (trumpet), Dave Baker (trombone), Dave Young (tenor sax), Chuck Israels (bass), and Joe Hunt (drums). A great example of challenging modern and yet swinging jazz...

"Like a message in a bottle, carried round by the ocean streams for decades, Henrik Rylander's album Från En Obestämd Plats I Rummet has floated around in the space of Swedish underground music. Höga Nord Rekords pulls the cork and unfolds the message that is a piece of music that was ahead of its time, sounding "now" 20 years after its first release in the late nineties. This album is a well-kept secret even for the most initiated music lovers in Sweden. The music, influenced by Flying Saucer Attack...

There was an amazingly high number of great albums being released on ECM during the 1970s and this is one of many beautiful, enjoyable classics. This 1978 release features his post-Odyssee group of Terje Rypdal-electric guitar, keyboard, synthesizer, Palle Mikkelborg-trumpet, fluegelhorn, RMI, tac piano, ring modulator, Sveinung Hovensjø-basses and Jon Christensen-drums, percussion. Not as powerful as Odysee (nothing is!), but as great in a different way.
