The first album by this German band, recorded in Fall & Winter 1971, & originally released on Pilz. One of the few purely symphonic rock-styled German bands of the early 70's.

"Wallenstein play a sort of spacey symphonic rock on their debut...

This is the 1st solo album by the wonderful and wonderfully talented bassist and singer/songwriter Ellen Andrea Wang, known to most of you as the leader of the Norwegian band Pixel.

This is really nothing like Pixel, but you can certainly...

First album by this Crypto band. This is their first album, recorded in late 1973 and presents a very simple, stripped-down approach, with many tracks consisting of only simple electric keyboards (Crumar organ, Wulitzer electric piano, Eminent...

"The Pop-Liisa and Jazz-Liisa broadcast session series presents previously unreleased and forgotten gems from the biggest names of Finnish prog and jazz of the 1970's
Never bootlegged and known up until now only to a few faithful servants (and largely thought to have been lost for ever), these sessions offer a hitherto unrivalled look into the state of Finnish jazz and progressive rock between the years 1972-1977. Imagine if the sessions recorded by John Peel had only recently been discovered, and...

Weather Report emerged directly out of Miles Davis' electric experiments (co-leaders Wayne Shorter and Joe Zawinul both being particpants on his Bitches Brew album).

For me, their first 4-5 years were by far their best and this line of the band..

This real rarity of symphonic rock from the 80s was first reissued by Laser's Edge, very early on in their career!

"Werwolf were named actually after the famous band Steppenwolf, which drummer Peter Besting liked a lot at the time (around 1970) .Original crew included also Hartwig Kugoth on guitar and Peter Lorenz on bass.
The band hailed from Olpe and was rehearsing regularly at Besting’s newly built house in Wenden since 1972. Around mid-70's they were joined by Jurgen Goeckler on keyboards.

It's great to see this, the very first album album by Mike Westbrook and band, available again. This 1967 masterpiece - one of the earliest Brit-jazz masterpieces, imo, features an amazing lineup of UK jazz talent: Mike Westbrook-piano, John Surman...

"LP version. This is the third solo album on Rune Grammofon by Norwegian experimental guitarist Stian Westerhus. With The Matriarch and the Wrong Kind of Flowers, Westerhus not only challenges and stretches the limits of his instrument but also comes...

"The return to light of a true gem by modern jazz master Kenny Wheeler. Flutter By, Butterfly was recorded in 1987 and originally published by Soul Note in 1988. Wheeler's visionary musical concepts develop through the interplay of this stellar quintet...

Fourth & final studio album by the 'original' line up of Jukka Gustavson, Pekka Pohjola, Jim Penbroke & Ronnie Osterberg. Most of the tunes are by Gustavson & so reflect his sensibility; definitely not a bad thing! This is as close to a Canterbury album as you can get outside of the UK in 1974!

"Considered by many as Wigwam's most ambitious work, Being was originally released in 1974. The album was partially remixed and remastered in 2001, and this latter version is considered superior by the...

Mastered from the original tapes by the fine Finnish label Svart, this is a high quality, classy package AND it includes a reproduction of the original inner booklet that came with the vinyl version.

Their 3rd album, & for my money, probably their best. The 1st 2 sides of the album are especially wonderful, organ-driven, song-oriented progressive, like the best of Caravan from the same period (1971). Warmly recommended!

"The swan song of Wigwam’s legendary first lineup (Pekka Pohjola, Jukka Gustavson, Ronnie Österberg, Jim Pembroke). The group recorded a series of shows in 1974 and built this live double LP from the cream of those recordings. Featuring a wild 17-minute jam arising from a cover version of The Moon Struck One by The Band, a live rendition of Pekka Pohjola’s solo number Nipistys and many other memorable moments.
The Svart reissue features not only the original liner notes by Tapio Korjus but also new...

"Deluxe remastered reissue of Barney Wilen's 1972 album Moshi, featuring additional artwork and a 20-page booklet of rare pictures, sheet music, and the original liner notes.
Includes a bonus DVD (packaged with exclusive artwork) of Caroline de Bendern's 1971 film à l'intention de Mlle Issoufou à Bilma, documenting this amazing African journey. Limited edition of 1000."

This album was recorded during an extended journey in Africa in 1970 and 1971 with a team of friends and musicians - the...

"The first new recordings from Windy & Carl in more than three years."

"Of the immeasurable legions that blogged and tweeted and pretend-hand-wrung about Kim Gordon and Thurston Moore of Sonic Youth filing for divorce a few months back, only...

Norma Winstone was the voice of adventurous British jazz of the late 60's and early 70's, appearing on classic releases by Neil Ardley, Kenny Wheeler, Azimuth, John Sevens, John Taylor, Kenny Wheeler and many others. She has a terrific voice and...

"Get ready to jump on your chair, dear �progsters�, because we can not imagine any different reaction upon hearing The Winstons� debut record, a 100% Italian trio despite their name and the kind of music here proposed.

Their genre in itself is hard to classify, but that definitely has its reference point the in the Canterbury progressive rock scene and in artists such as Soft Machine, Gong, Caravan, Henry Cow, Kevin Ayers and so on.

This is a power trio of multi-instrumentalists who hide...

"Apparently, Witth�ser+Westrupp came into being at the Essen "Podium" folk club where Walter Westrupp worked as a DJ. Bernd Witth�ser was already known as a protest singer, Westrupp was playing in a skiffle band, and when the two met they realised...

"Beautiful, exact-repro double vinyl in gatefold sleeve of this German duo's fourth and final album, originally issued on Kosmische Musik in 1973. It features a variety of live material from the years listed, including early folk pre-dating their...

"An exceptional recording, dating from September 1974, featuring a band that has never released an album up to now. Robert Wood, an English vibraphonist, guitarist and singer, is a veteran of the jazz scene, free jazz, jazz and experimental rock having played with Alan Silva, Don Cherry, Gong, Marc Bolan, Sam Gopal, Kent Carter, Bernard Vitet, Lard Free, Christian Vander, Fred Frith and Yannick Top. He spent the majority of his career in France. Woodlands was formed in 1973 with Olivier Didier...

First-ever vinyl reissue of this classic, total art-punk/art-damage title.
When Henry Cow fell apart in the summer of 1978, the main players in the band dispersed. Fred Frith left England to settle in NYC for a good number of years, getting...

Frank Wright on tenor
Noah Howard on alto
Bobby Few on piano
Muhammad Ali on drums

"This is the free jazz record that everyone wants. Its long, mythic history is shrouded and whispered about because of it rarity. Church Number Nine was recorded on March 7, 1970, but remained buried until it was released in 1973 on the Calumet label, a Parisian venture that instantly evaporated into thin air. Only 300 copies of the album made it into circulation; the rest were apparently destroyed....

Excellent, fun and rockin' progressive hard rock with great flute leads, reminiscent of heaviest early Tull (Benefit) with a female vocalist. If this sounds like your thing, this is your thing! Recommended!

"The Dresden heavy retro band WUCAN began their quick ascent in 2014. Everything began with their first EP "Vikarma," released in November 2014 on Metalizer Records. This release, which quickly sold its first 500 vinyl copies, received many positive reviews. With all of this praise WUCAN...

This is an extremely high-quality vinyl version of this great album on snazzy gold vinyl. Includes download coupon for the digital version of the music.

"The missing links in my life's work, no less!" � Robert Wyatt...

"�Different Every Time (Benign Dictatorships)� is the second vinyl volume compiling of the works of Robert Wyatt curated by Robert and biographer Marcus O�Dair. This album brings together the best of Robert�s collaborations and guest appearances including some very special oddities and rarities available here for the very first time."

"Disc 2 ("Benign Dictatorships") is the jewel of the pair in that it collects some of RW's collaborations with a wide range of other artists, from around the world. G
