"From Kangsala, Finland, Tabula Rasa was founded in 1972 by guitarist Heikki Silvennoinen, drummer Asko Pakkanen, and bass player Tapio Suominen. During the band's run, Mikko Alatalo played the Peter Sinfield role as contributing lyricist, and unofficial member. They are considered one of the top finish...

This is an extraordinary vault-find. These approximately 40' long sessions have never been released before, not even bootlegged, and were not even known to exist.
They are released as individual (and quite beautiful) lps and most importantly, every one of these is great! Even the artists I was completely unfamiliar with, are great. Hugely recommended.

This is an extraordinary vault-find. These approximately 40' long sessions have never been released before, not even bootlegged, and were not even known to exist.
They are released as individual (and quite beautiful) lps, but the CD versions pairs up two sympathetic sessions together on one disc!
And most importantly, every one of these is great! Even the artists I was completely unfamiliar with, are great. Hugely recommended.

"The Tangent return to the world this year with their first new music since 2015.
The Tangent, the progressive rock group led by Andy Tillison, have announced the release of the first new music since 2015. Their new ninth studio album ‘The Slow Rust of Forgotten Machinery’ is set for release on 21st July 2017. The line-up for this album once again features Tillison on keyboards, vocals (and for the first time on a Tangent record – drums), Jonas Reingold on bass, Luke Machin on guitars and vocals...

This 1975 album was their seventh release and was recorded live in the Autumn of 1975 in the UK and France. This was an impressive document of the fact that they could do it all live, which was no small feat.

Back in stock and at a greatly improved / reduced price! If you didn't snab this before, you should now!
This vinyl-only release is the first new music from this great, legendary psych band in a while. When Tangle Edge first emerged - seemingly out of nowhere - and, being located in the far northern reaches of Norway, inside the arctic circle, one could actually say from out of nowhere(!) - with their first album in 1988, they were seen as the band who would simultaneously save progressive rock and...

"An expanded reissue of Telaio Magnetico's Live 75, including unreleased tracks from the super group's only tour in 1975. Telaio Magnetico was composed of Franco Battiato, Lino Capra Vaccina, Juri Camisasca, Mino Di Martino, Roberto Mazza, and Terra Di Benedetto. In the mid '70s, the Italian underground scene seemed to mature an existential priority of yearning toward a new psychological universe, with a firm idea to colonize an uncharted space of a necessary and infinite path of spiritual redemption...

This is the third studio release from one of the best Rock Progressivo Italiano bands currently out there at this time and the band is made even better by having on board ace-drummer Mattias Olsson behind the kit!

"As the preceding album, also in this case the title is a word game. The union of latin verb "ludere", that means 'the act of playing', with the italian article "il" generates a dualism between "il giocare" (the act of playing) and the verb "illudere", that means 'to deceive' or...

"Tetragon, successor of Trikolon, were founded in Osnabr�ck (Lower Saxony) in the spring of 1971. They released their first and only LP, �Nature�, in that very year. It came out as CD on Musea in 1995. At the end of 1971, Tetragon recorded in a Hamburg...

This is the 2nd full length release from this NJ based, modern 'progressive rock and more' septet and their first since hooking up with the label of one of the members of Coheed and Cambria, bringing them to the attention of a wider audience.
Their music is very 'song' based, but features some great playing and tons of cool tricky instrumental bits both within and outside of the sung sections of the songs. Very modern, extremely well done and complex, yet oddly accessible. Hugely recommended and....

"The meeting of three expatriate Hungarian musicians who had been touring with the Hungarian Philharmonic when they jumped ship and stayed in Germany, with three German musicians. An appealing 1973-styled blend of progressive rock with classical, jazzy and folky influences. Lots of classical pretensions and influences, with lots of flute. Vocals, flute, guitars, violin/viola/piano/organ, bass and drums. They shortly afterwards went on to work with Louis Hardin aka Moondog (!), but there doesn't seem to...

This Heat were a UK trio who were probably the closest that we've come to the original, groundbreaking Faust albums - a band that understood & used the studio as an integral part of their sound. Unlike Faust, they were (a) a great live act & (b) much more angry & 'committed'; there's no hippy/drug-isms here. This was their last release, & is their masterpiece; a massively ANGRY album, that was pretty much ignored at the time, but which has proven to be very influential as the years have gone by. As...

First-ever vinyl reissue, in a great, gatefold sleeve.

"Originally released in 1971 on Philips. This sole album of Hamburg's six piece is a crossover of progressive and jazz rock, notably with influences as wide-ranging as Blodwyn Pig (two covers as bonus tracks) and Curved Air. Long jammings by highly talented musicians, all blending into an unique sound with the distinct spirit of krautrock."

"From their first live performance in 1972, it was seven years before Tibet released their sole lp. By the time of their lp, they were a six piece: Klaus Werthmann (vocals), Deff Ballin (keyboards), Dieter Kumpakischkis (keyboards), Karl-Heinz Hamann...

This is the only surviving live document of Jukka Tolonen's mid 70s supergroup:
Jukka Tolonen-guitar
Pekka Pöyry-reeds
Esa Kotilainen-keyboards
Heikki Virtanen-bass
Esko Rosnell-drums
and has never before been released or heard since it's original broadcast over 40 years ago!

This was the fourth solo album by the great guitarist of Tasavallan Presidentti (and sometimes Wigwam, in their early days), playing a progressive rock tinged fusion or a fusion-centric progressive rock.
For Hysterica, Jukka enlisted the help of the great Pekka P�yry on alto & soprano sax and flute, Esa Kotilainen on organ, clavinet and synthesizers, Heikki Virtanen on bass and Esko Rosnell on drums and percussion; Pekke Pohjola plays bass on 1 track.
This is pretty great, classic mid 70's style.

This is an extraordinary vault-find. These approximately 40' long sessions have never been released before, not even bootlegged, and were not even known to exist.

This was Jukka�s second solo album, and was recorded in late 1973, while he was still playing with Tasavallan Presidentti.
This is a quite lovely, �summer sun-shine filled� instrumental jazz/rock album with folk overtones!
Jukka performs on electric and acoustic guitars, acoustic piano, moog and tabla and heavy hitters from the Finnish jazz and electric jazz scene appear here.

This was the 3rd album by the great guitarist of Tasavallan Presidentti (and sometimes Wigwam), playing a progressive rock tinged fusion with folk music overtones.
This was recorded in August 1974 and released at the end of the year. The band is:
Jukka Tolonen-guitars and piano
Esa Kotilainen-Moog, clavinet, keyboards
Pekka P�yry-saxes and flute
Heikki Virtanen-bass
Esko Rosnell-drums
plus guests on one track.

A quite wonderful first release by the guitarist who was still playing in Tasavallan Presidentti at the time this was recorded. All instrumental and featuring Jukka performing on electric and acoustic guitars and electric and acoustic piano, and also...

Features a staggering 26-plus-minute bonus track previously only available on CD, plus an entirely unreleased track. Includes an extended version of one of the original album tracks. Scores of previously unseen ephemera adorn the lavish inside gatefold and inner sleeves. Includes download code with added...

This archival release by Sweden's rightly legendary Trad Gras och Stanar is revelatory and, imo, is the single best record by them. The final culmination of the musicians from Parson Sound, Harvester & International Harvester, this excellent quality for the time period. archival release is the stoner/pounding id classic you would want it to be! Highly recommended!

"The long-awaited new album from the legendary pioneers of transcendental psychedelic rock music and DIY culture in general. Tack För Kaffet (So Long) is a tribute to the deceased band members and dearest friends Torbjörn Abelli and Thomas Mera Gartz. It becomes something of a farewell show for the old Träd, Gräs Och Stenar because all the old and new members, including founder Bo Anders, Torbjörn and Mera, and Reine Fiske (Dungen, The Amazing), are all contributing to this album. The sounds were...

This reissues an insanely rare 1973 album on the insanely rare Futura label. Traveling were a keyboard trio led by Yves Hasselmann. His piano & Hammond organ workouts are comparable to a lighter Dave Stewart or Mike Ratledge, while the rhythm section provide decent support. His vocals are also pleasant & fluent. For folks who dig the trio Hammond keyboard sound of bands like Collegium Musicum, 69-era Softs, Egg & Canterbury-style bands.

"A symphonic prog band that defined Flamenco progressive and were the foremost Spanish progressive band. These guys, at times, remind me a lot of King Crimson in their early days, yet were a genre in themselves. With poetically styled songs, gorgeous flamenco guitar, and a very Spanish sound, Triana are a must to try, being a very important progressive band. Any of their first four El Patio, Hijos Del Agobio, Sombra Y Luz and Un Encuentro are all worth the find."- Gibraltar Encyclopedia of Progressive Rock

On their third, Atlantide (1972), there is a shift in personnel, as their guitarist and drummer left. Original members Joe Vescovi (keyboards & vocals) and Arvid Wegg Andersen (bass & vocals) remain. The guitarist is not replaced, but the new drummer is Furio Chirico, soon to amaze the world with Arti E Mestieri!
So, they became a keyboard/bass/drums trio and were obviously now influenced by ELP. This album and their 4th and last one soon after, reflect that sound.
