Anathema - Optimist: Earbook Edition Germany - Import, 3PC CD $104.99
Cale, John - Live At Rockpalast With DVD, 4PC CD $22.99
Even today, JOHN CALE is renowned for having been a member of The Velvet Underground alongside Lou Reed, Maureen Tucker and Sterling Morrison. Though less known to many fans are his early collaborations with avant-garde musicians like John Cage or La Monte Young. His solo works have always been a mixture of classical influenced avant-garde, orchestral works and dynamic, experimental Rock. He has worked as a musician, producer (Nico, Patti Smith, Happy Mondays, to name a few) and arranger. His collaborations with artists such as Brian Eno, Kevin Ayers or Little Feat are legendary. When he was invited for the Rockpalast-Festival on October, 14th 1984, he had just released the desolate masterpiece "Music For A New Society" (1982), "Caribbean Sunset" (1983) and "John Cale Comes Alive" (1984). Compared to the official live album, JOHN CALE's performance at the Rockpalast was far more intense, desperate and wild. He performed the songs with a very hard edge, sometimes even deconstructed them ("Heartbreak Hotel"), receiving a mixed reaction from the audience, that just has survived performances of Level 24, Huey Lewis & The News and Chalice. When JOHN CALE appeared onstage it nearly was 3 o'clock in the morning, the atmosphere in the hall was as tense and menacing as the concert that followed. Up to this day, this performance remains one of the most spectacular concerts in the history of the Rockpalast-Series. In sharp contrast to this performance you will find a second concert at Zeche Bochum from 1983. Here you will find the more introverted JOHN CALE: a man and his piano performing his all-time-classics, including an extremely expressive version of "Fear Is A Man's Best Friend". Altogether, this set perfectly represents the many facettes of the JOHN CALE in the early 80s - it is a historic document which stands the test of time. Boxset with 2 DVDs and 2 CDs, booklet with fotos and linernotes.
Carrack, Paul - Original Album Collection Vol 2 UK Import, 5PC CD $22.99
Limited five CD set from the British blue-eyed soul vocalist. After the success of the Vol 1 Box comes Vol 2 of the Classic Album Collection. Spanning from Old New Borrowed and Blue to 2013's classic soul themed collection Rain or Shine the box comes in a slipcase and contains five albums housed in mini LP type sleeves. Paul Carrack, the hugely respected singer-songwriter who is the voice of many of the landmark British pop songs of the past 40 years, released a stunning new album, Soul Shadows, on January 15, 2016. The record sees him at the absolute peak of his powers as a vocalist, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist. Paul Carrack surely deserves the latter-day title of the hardest-working man in show business. Soul Shadows came in the wake of Carrack's latest sojourn as featured vocalist and keyboard player in Eric Clapton's band for his UK and international tour, the result of their longtime friendship and mutual respect. The new album was the follow-up to 2013's warmly-received Rain Or Shine, which maintained Paul's recurring status as a staple of the BBC Radio 2 playlist.

Plus the non-Akkerman Focus releases, with a rejuvenated band helmed by Thijs van Leer, innovative as ever, creating new sounds like no other band can. A box of groundbreaking music to say the least.
Grateful Dead - Road Trips, Vol. 4 No. 5 Boston Music Hall 3PC CD $53.99
It was our great honor at Real Gone Music to issue all 36 volumes of Dick's Picks, The Grateful Dead's landmark live concert series; over the four and a half years it took us to release all three dozen titles, we sometimes felt like we were on the greatest Dead tour ever, every single show a classic! Well, our diligence in releasing Dick's Picks has had a "Ripple" effect, for now the band is entrusting us with releasing it's subsequent live concert series, Road Trips! Unlike Dick's Picks, which saw about two-thirds of it's titles go to regular retail in their original incarnations, NONE of the entries in the Road Trips series were offered to retail outlets outside of the Dead's own website. The Road Trips series was also a little different from Dick's Picks in that the early volumes assembled tracks from different shows on the same tour, while later volumes presented single shows. Since it worked so well with Dick's Picks, we are reissuing the last titles first, and we have enlisted the series' original designer, Steve Vance, to convert the original wallet packaging to customer-friendly triple-CD jewel cases. Another cache of brilliant live Dead, finally available in record stores!
Kayak - Journey Through Time: Complete Studio Album Collection Boxed Set, Holland - Import, 21PC CD $109.99
Limited 21 CD set from the Dutch progressive rockers. This box holds the band's sixteen studio album (including three double albums) and two bonus CD's with non-album tracks, rarities and demo's. One of the bonus CD's most remarkable items is 'Happy New Year', a Kayak demo dating from '74 or '75, that has never been released. There are several Kayak-related tracks like the singe 'Fluffy'/ 'White Walls' (1970) by High Tide Formation (with Pim Koopman, Ton Scherpenzeel, Chiel van Praag and Ron v.d. Werff). Then there's an outstanding collection of no less than eight home-recorded demos of previously unreleased material by Pim, Ton, Johan Slager and Carwin Gijsing under the name of Ten Ride Ticket. The Plan (with Ton and the Kay-ettes) are represented by their 1982 single If This Ain't Love/Hit Bottom. Finally we mention the version of 'I Want You To Be Mine' that in 1978 took Kayak to the USA Top 50. Worth mentioning is the fact that an empty wallet has included an for the yet to be released album Seventeen, which enables the true Kayak collector to really complete this unique album set. Albums have been remastered from the original studio master tapes.
Marillion - Misplaced Childhood (Deluxe Edition)(4CD w/ Blu-Ray) 5PC CD $54.99
As openings go, they don't come any more enigmatic than the one that ushers in Marillion's third album, 'Misplaced Childhood'.

The British Invasion contains 122 influential British tracks in all spread over eight CDs.

Bold new sounds and influences from overseas turned into a social and cultural phenomenon that transformed pop culture in the '60s. From 1964 to the end of the decade, American shores were invaded by British forces-designers, actors, singers and musicians-all armed with sophisticated style and accents and all of them marvelously and exotically "foreign." Dominating the airwaves were tunes from some of the greatest British rock and pop legends. Musical acts ranging from buoyant pop to harder-edged rock plus the most impressive guitar band in rock music climbed the charts and changed not only what Americans listened to, but also how we thought, dressed and lived. Time Life put together the essential music collection that celebrates this new sound that captured our hearts: The British Invasion.

Anathema - Optimist 2PC CD $15.99

Argent, Rod - Red House CD $16.99
Reissue of this 1988 album from the musician best known for his work with The Zombies and Argent. Rod Argent is an English musician, singer, songwriter, composer, and record producer. An uncredited internet pundit on the One Good Song blog, writes: "This comes off as a new age movie soundtrack, but a good new age movie soundtrack. It's mostly instrumental, and mostly done on synthesizers - even the drums sound like drum machines - augmented by occasional sax, guitar (Clem Clempson, ex-Humble Pie), or bass (Mo Foster, ex-Jeff Beck). Argent scat sings on "Salvation Song" and delivers fantastic soul vocals on "Helpless" and "Baby Don't You Cry". He'd been doing movie and TV scores for years at this point, and he really had the form figured out.
Atomic Rooster - Devil's Answer - Atomic Rooster CD $16.99
CD reissue. Atomic Rooster was an English progressive rock band originally composed of former members of the The Crazy World of Arthur Brown. Throughout their history keyboardist Vincent Crane was the only constant member and wrote the majority of their material. Their history is defined by two periods: the early-mid-1970s and the early 1980s. Their genre in music is difficult to define since they went through radical changes in very short times during the life of the band. However, their best-known era represented a more hard rock/progressive rock sound. This CD is a collection of the band's radio broadcasts: tracks 1-2 recorded in session for Mike Harding Show 26.5.70; track 3 recorded in session for John Peel 14.1.71; tracks 4-5 recorded in session for Mike Harding 22.3.71; tracks 6-7 recorded in session for Johnnie Walker 12.6.72; tracks 8-9 recorded in session for Johnnie Walker 7.12.72; tracks 10-12 recorded in session 16.10.81; and tracks 13-15 recorded in session for Live 27.7.72.

Big Big Train - Second Brightest Star UK Import CD $18.99
2017 release from the progressive rock outfit. The Second Brightest Star is a companion album to Folklore and Grimspound and features seven new songs (about 40 minutes) which "explore landscapes, rivers and meeting places and take the listener on voyages of discovery across the world and to the stars." In addition, the release will comes with a bonus selection of 30 minutes of music (named 'Grimlore') where songs from Folklore and Grimspound are presented in extended format. "The Second Brightest Star is the last album in a cycle of releases which started back in 2009 with The Underfall Yard album. Our writing over this period has focused on the English landscape, the people that work on the land and their folklore stories. The band will be moving on to different landscapes and subjects in future years as we play more shows outside of England. But we had a few more stories left to tell and wanted to bring them together on The Second Brightest Star.
Blake, Tim - Caldea Music II: Remastered Edition UK Import CD $18.99
Digitally remastered edition of Caldea Music II, the 2002 album by Tim Blake. Tim first came to prominence as a member of Gong, where his synthesizer experimentation and mastery was demonstrated on albums such as Flying Teapot, Angel's Egg and You. He would also join Hawkwind from 1979 - 1980 and from November 2007. After departing Gong in 1975 he teamed up with French lighting designer Patrice Warrener to form Crystal Machine, pioneering the use of lasers and synthesizers in a live setting. Blake's debut solo album, Crystal Machine, was originally released in 1977 on the French experimental label Egg. Tim followed this with Blake's New Jerusalem in 1978. Unlike his previous work, the album featured songs and the lengthy title-track would dominate the album's second side. Tim Blake joined Hawkwind in 1979 and remained with the group for just over a year before returning to France and moving away from music. In 2002 Tim recorded and released Caldea Music II, a work especially commissioned by the Caldea Spa centre in Andorra. The album saw Tim return to his purely instrumental roots, cited by some as a modern equivalent of his classic Crystal Machine album. Recorded once again at his Windmill studio, the album featured wonderfully evocative music and guest appearances by Christian Boule (Glissando Guitar) and Konan Mevel (Catalan Bagpipes, Flute).
Blake, Tim - Tide Of The Century: Remastered Edition UK Import CD $18.99
Esoteric Recordings are pleased to announce the release of a newly re-mastered edition of "The Tide of the Century", the 2000 album by Tim Blake.

He would also join Hawkwind from 1979 - 1980 and from November 2007.
Bloomfield, Michael - Don't Say That I Ain't Your Man UK Import, 2PC CD $13.99
Two CD set. Mike Bloomfield was an American guitarist and composer, born in Chicago, Illinois, who knew and played with many of Chicago's blues legends before achieving his own fame popularizing blues music in the mid-1960s. Notably, he played a significant role in helping to launch the "electric" Bob Dylan, playing on most of the Highway 61 Revisited album and performing with Dylan at the 1965 Newport Folk Festival. He was ranked #22 on Rolling Stone's list of 100 Greatest Guitarists of All Time in 2003 and #42 by the same magazine in 2011. He was inducted into the Blues Hall of Fame in 2012 and, as a member of the Paul Butterfield Blues Band, the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2015. Don't Say That I Ain't Your Man: Essential Blues, 1964-1969 is an anthology that includes five songs from Bloomfield's original 1964 Columbia sessions produced by John Hammond. The remaining ten tracks move from his contributions to the Paul Butterfield Blues Band and Electric Flag, to his collaborations with Al Kooper, as well as some late-'60s solo material.
Bonnet, Graham - Live Here Comes The Night 2PC CD $15.99
Legendary rock vocalist Graham Bonnet is back with a new live album and home video captured during his acclaimed performance at Frontiers Rock Festival III in Trezzo (Milan, Italy) on April 24, 2016. - Accompanied by a stellar band featuring founding member Beth-Ami Heavenstone on bass, South American guitar sensation Conrado Pesinato on lead guitar, and Mark Zonder (known for his work with Warlord and Fates Warning) on drums, Bonnet masterfully delivered a thrilling "Best of" set which included songs from his stints with bands such as Rainbow, McAuley Schenker Group, Alcatrazz, Impellitteri, and of course his solo material too. - Bonnet says: "It's been a very long time since I last released a live video, 33 years to be exact, with Alcatrazz. Myself and the band were very excited to film and record our performance at the Frontiers Rock Festival for a live album and video and are very happy with the final result!"

Brecker Brothers - Heaven Detente - Holland - Import CD $15.99
Buckingham, Lindsey & Christine Mcvie - Lindsey Buckingham Christine Mcvie CD $15.99
2017 release. Longtime members of Fleetwood Mac, Lindsey Buckingham and Christine McVie have joined together to record their first-ever album as a duo. The Mac bandmates rediscovered their creative bond after McVie rejoined the group's lineup in 2014. The album offers what both partners see as the sensible - and long-overdue - culmination of a long-term partnership. "We were exploring a creative process, and the identity of the project took on a life organically," explains Buckingham. "The body of work felt like it was meant to be a duet album. We acknowledged that to each other on many occasions, and said to ourselves, 'what took us so long?'" "We've always written well together, Lindsey and I," adds McVie. "This has just spiraled into something really amazing that we've done between us." Tracked in Los Angeles, Lindsey Buckingham/Christine McVie serves as a de facto Fleetwood Mac album of sorts; although singer Stevie Nicks was not involved, the duo worked with Mac rhythm section Mick Fleetwood and John McVie, adding their distinctive "dynamic rhythmic engine" to the 10-song set.
Burdon, Eric & the Animals - Every One Of Us Holland - Import CD $15.99
CD reissue. The late sixties were the experimental years in 'pop' music, the years of flower power and psychedelica, the years of Jefferson Airplane and The Doors in the U.S.A. and The Move, The Animals and Sgt. Pepper in the U.K. The traditional two minute songs made place for stretched out tracks which could become up to a full LP sized 20 minute marathon. With Every One Of Us, originally released in 1968 on MGM records, Eric Burdon did his part in bringing music to a new level never heard before. Famous for many big hits in the mid 60's like 'House Of The Rising Sun' and 'It's My Life' Burdon, with Zoot Money on the Hammond, surprised the music world with this top psychedelic blues album.
Byrne, David - Live From Austin, TX With DVD, 2PC CD $17.99
David Byrne is a modern renaissance man - and that's not just a cliché. From the heady days as co-founder of the celebrated art new-wave group Talking Heads (1976-88) through his own constantly evolving and innovative solo music career, he has pursued his muse on many different artistic fronts. He's been the driving force behind a body of work that has been both intellectually daring and commercially successful... and he shows no signs of slowing down decades later. This show, captured on November 28, 2001, came on the heels of his hit single, Like Humans Do and the release of the album Look Into The Eyeball, which was another typically eclectic musical stew reflecting a variety of styles and influences, from Philly soul to a D.C. Go-Go inspired groove and his first-ever Spanish composition, Desconocido Soy. Critics at the time called it his best work in years, and his performance on the Austin City Limits stage shows why. Joined by Austin's own eclectic tango ensemble Tosca, Byrne takes us down many different musical roads in his ACL debut. Of course, besides the brilliant songwriter and performer that he is, he's also an accomplished performance artist, photographer, web journalist, film writer / director, composer of motion picture soundtracks, and founder of his own world music label, Luaka Bop Records. He also has a collection of Grammys, Oscars and Golden Globes on his mantel. His music may be complex and poetic, but he makes no bones about his ultimate intent: I want to move people to dance and cry at the same time. - Terry Lickona (Producer Austin City Limits).
Caligula's Horse - Tide The Thief & River's End Germany - Import CD $20.99
Can - Singles CD $16.99
Can were enormously influential on forward-thinking rock artists (their fingerprints are all over Radiohead, The Flaming Lips, Public Image Limited, Pavement, Mars Volta, The Jesus & Mary Chain) as well as crate dig hip-hop culture (sampled by the likes of Kanye West, A Tribe Called Quest, Earl Sweatshirt, Spank Rock), but one question persists: Where do you start? This unique document is the first time Can's singles have been presented together and shows the breadth of their influential career, includes cuts dating back to 1970, such as 'Soul Desert' and 'She Brings The Rain', as well as out of print single edits of tracks like "Halleluwah," "Vitamin C" and "I Want More" until the band's breakup in 1988. It also includes rare singles such as 'Silent Night' and a 7" cut of 'Turtles Have Short Legs' (originally recorded during the sessions for Tago Mago from 1971).
Captain Beefheart & His Magic Band - Trout Mask House Sessions 1969 CD $16.99
CD reissue. Zappa granted Beefheart unrestrained artistic freedom in making 1969's Trout Mask Replica, which ranked 58th in Rolling Stone magazine's 2003 list of the 500 greatest albums of all time. Van Vliet has been described as '... one of modern music's true innovators' with '... a singular body of work virtually unrivalled in it's daring and fluid creativity.' Although he achieved little commercial or mainstream critical success, he sustained a cult following as a 'highly significant' and 'incalculable' influence on an array of New Wave, punk, post-punk, experimental and alternative rock musicians. Known for his enigmatic personality and relationship with the public, Van Vliet made few public appearances after his retirement from music (and from his Beefheart persona) in 1982. He pursued a career in art, an interest that originated in his childhood talent for sculpture, and a venture that proved to be his most financially secure. His expressionist paintings and drawings command high prices and have been exhibited in art galleries and museums across the world. Van Vliet died in 2010, having suffered from multiple sclerosis for many years. The Captain had a notoriously sadomasochistic with some of his musicians especially during the recording of the album usually considered to be his greatest work Trout Mask Replica. Here, you can listen to some of those peculiar sessions for yourself!

Chilton, Alex - Baton Rouge 1985 CD $17.99
ALEX CHILTON - Baton Rouge 1985 - Klondike proudly presents the entire Louisiana Public Broadcast (WLPB) of Alex Chilton, live from the VFW Hall in Baton Rouge, Louisiana on September 27th 1985. With shades of Syd Barrett and other Anglophile figures, Chilton's adoption of obscure blues, R&B, soul and the American songbook provided an interesting and provocative return to form with 1985's Feudalist Tarts E.P. Here, Chilton's famed excesses are firmly denied, as he delivers a blistering set with all the Big Star trademarks firmly intact.
Clear Blue Sky - Clear Blue Sky: Remastered Edition UK Import CD $18.99
Digitally remastered and fully restored edition of the classic self-titled album by progressive power trio Clear Blue Sky, originally released on the Vertigo label in 1970. Clear Blue Sky came together in the late 1960s in Acton, West London. Comprising John Simms (guitar, vocals), Ken White (drums) and Mark Sheather (bass), the band came to the attention of musician and producer Patrick Campbell-Lyons (of the UK band Nirvana) in 1970. In a role as A&R man for Philips' "progressive" label, Vertigo, he signed the trio to the label and produced their self-titled album the same year. The release features an illustrated booklet, previously unseen photographs (courtesy of John Simms), an essay and interviews with John Simms and Patrick Campbell-Lyons and fully restores the albums original artwork.
Coryell, Larry - At The Village Gate CD $15.99
Larry Coryell unexpectedly passed away earlier this year right after our Real Gone reissue of his second solo album, Coryell, and with the renewed attention given to his monumental recorded legacy, we decided to move up our long-in-the-works domestic CD debut of his album At the Village Gate in order to expose this classic record to the largest audience possible. This is the recording where Larry really went axe-to-axe with Jimi Hendrix, who had passed away four months prior to the January 1971 gigs that formed the basis of this release; perhaps in response, Coryell formed his own power trio of his own composed of himself, drummer Harry Wilkinson, and bassist Mervin Bronson to play material that stylistically wasn't too far removed from the funk/jazz/rock of Jimi's Band of Gypsys. The result was a fan favorite that somehow has never been issued on CD in the U.S. (and came out overseas over a decade ago on a couple of lightly-distributed labels of suspect provenance). Coryell's Gibson 400 has seldom sounded as slashing as it does here, while Wilkinson's playing (aptly described as "busy" by Downbeat) is a cross between Mitch Mitchell, Tony Williams, and Buddy Miles; Bronson keeps things rooted when Coryell heads for the stratosphere. Which is often... this is maybe the most "heroic" of this underappreciated guitar hero's records. Mike Milchner's remastering captures every coruscating note, and Bill Kopp's liner notes feature an interview with drummer Wilkinson. One of the truly great jazz-rock guitarists, loud, free 'n' fiery.
Coryell, Larry's 11th House - Seven Secrets CD $16.99
2017 release, the final recording by legendary jazz fusion pioneers Larry Coryell and Alphonse Mouton in the reformed the Eleventh House. The late guitarist Coryell assembled founding members Randy Brecker (trumpet), long-timer John Lee (bass), the addition of son Julian (guitar) and the late Alphonse Mouzon (drums) to bring the rock and funk back to jazz again with a batch of eleven powerhouse tracks. The album is truly a group effort with Coryell relying on each member to contribute compositions to the new album (much like he did back in the 70's).
Cosmograf - Hay-Man Dreams UK Import CD $22.99
Dauner, Wolfgang & Flo - Elektronische Mythen CD $11.99
Davis, Miles - Cinema Of Miles Davis UK Import CD $15.99
UK collection. The Cinema of Miles Davis showcases superior examples of the use of the great jazz trumpeter's music in film. This edition includes his first complete score, sultry and improvised, for Elevator To the Gallows - Louis Malle's directorial debut starring the eternal Jeanne Moreau - which came in late 1957, a decisive time for Miles; marking the ending of his hard-bop period and anticipating the modal phase that would culminate in A Kind of Blue. With Parker and Dizzy Gillespie and Monk, Davis' music was central to the aesthetic of the Beat Generation so it is unsurprising to find it featured in documentaries on the life and work of both Jack Kerouac and Lenny Bruce. These iconic men of words considered their art to be a form of jazz with the latter referring to his voice as his "Horn". During the nineties, the Spanish director Pedro Almodóvar deployed powerful and ornate Gil Evans compositions, performed by Miles and inspired by flamenco, in High Heels and Flower of My Secret. Elsewhere, the incomparable Blue in Green appears in Sally Potter's passionate, Cold War meets the Sexual Revolution drama, Ginger & Rosa, while Miles' reading of the Eden Ahbez masterpiece Nature Boy, is heard under Mediterranean skies in Anthony Minghella's interpretation of Patricia Highsmith's The Talented Mr. Ripley.

Best loved and noted to date for his genre blending and high quality dub-centric productions, in Magnetic, Gaudi has shown us another aspect of his musical self, other ranges in his musical landscape and he has done it with an all-star cast of supporting musicians.

Haslinger, Paul - Halt & Catch Fire (original Soundtrack) CD $24.99
AMC's hit series 'Halt And Catch Fire' captures the rise of the PC-era during the early 80s and the technology revolution. Nominated by Vox as the best show in 2016, it's "a potent look back at the earliest days of the internet that also glimpsed, through some hazy curtain, the world we live in right now." Acclaimed for it's exceptional soundtrack by former Tangerine Dream musician and award winning composer, Paul Haslinger has created a period-appropriate synth score that admirably sets the mood and tone of the bygone era. Revisiting his time in the pioneering electronic band during the mid-80s, the Austrian composer writes with a uniquely knowledgeable yet less overtly nostalgic ear that keeps the show's current audience in mind. Acknowledging the time in which the series itself has been created alongside when the show is set, Haslinger's bold and innovative scores have seen his Hollywood career escalate over the last two decades. The man behind the music for Blow, Resident Evil and Death Race has become one of the industry's most sought after composers.

Mr Big - Defying Gravity Deluxe Edition, 2PC CD $13.99
DEFYING GRAVITY deftly showcases that patented MR. BIG blend of crunch and melody, from the freight-train ride of opening cut "Open Your Eyes" to the harmony-laden wonderment of "Damn I'm in Love Again" to the grateful/wistful nostalgia of "1992" (recalling the days when the band was flying high atop the singles charts with their international #1 smash "To Be With You") to the barnburning slide-blues closer, "Be Kind." Overall, DEFYING GRAVITY is prime evidence that the only thing MR. BIG remains tethered to is their ongoing pursuit of achieving creative excellence. Original members Eric Martin (singer) (lead vocals), Paul Gilbert (guitars), Billy Sheehan (bass) and Pat Torpey (drums) reunited with producer Kevin Elson (who was behind the boards for the band's 1989 self-titled debut, 1991's LEAN INTO IT and 1993's BUMP AHEAD) for an intensive six-day recording session in Los Angeles.

Ono, Yoko - Approximately Infinite Universe 2PC CD $15.99
There's a fury at the core of Yoko Ono's 1973 rock opus Approximately Infinite Universe that was not apparent on previously recorded efforts. Ono has always been a master of turning pain and sadness into art, but here, there's a clenched-fist intensity that sets it apart in her deep, unparalleled catalogue. Ono is angry. She proved that one can carry a boundless love for humanity and still be furious - furious at male/female relationships, at war, at your partner. Meanwhile, on a sonic level, Ono ups the ante on the more centered rock-n-roll sounds she approached with 1971's Fly. The album is one of the most traditional-sounding rock chapters in Ono's sprawling catalogue. There are moments here that absolutely rival Jersey legends the E Street Band ever dared tread. Approximately Infinite Universe is an essential and progressive piece of Ono's output, both in the advancements she made as a songwriter/conceptualist, and as a solidified statement of her staunch feminist role within the very male-dominated mainstream rock ghetto of the mid-1970's.
Ono, Yoko - Feeling The Space CD $15.99

It's liner notes parody adult advertising, giving the telephone numbers, birthdates and vital statistics of the male band members. (John Lennon appears as "John O'Cean", with his number listed as "Not for Sale").
Ono, Yoko - Fly 2PC CD $15.99
What you hear on Fly is Yoko Ono's disarming combination of opacity and visceral, personal transparency in full bloom. It's one of the most unbridled, most captivating soul albums ever made. And that's right where she wants you: vulnerable, wide open to any-and-everything, ready to have your world tipped onto it's head. She's a master of spinning your head around. First, you get the Bar Band from Hell of "Midsummer New York" to kick things off. It's about the last thing you'd expect from Ono coming off Plastic Ono Band. But here you are, listening to Ono channeling Elvis. Why am I all of a sudden bopping along to it? At 16-minute-plus, the tranced-out, motorik-inspired boogie "Mind Train" is rough-and-ready for your next basement get down. Movement and perspiration required. Then, we have the absolutely gutting blues of "Don't Worry, Kyoko (Mummy's Only Looking For Her Hand in The Snow)." Full of ache and raw emotion, the song is a love note, a plea for forgiveness, to her estranged daughter Kyoko shot across the universe on a flaming arrow. Ono follows this stampede of emotion with the self-referential torch song "Mrs. Lennon," a wounded song that gets right into the Universal Loneliness. And so here you are. You're devastated. You're exhausted. You're exhilarated. And you're only 1/4 of the way up the mountain that is Fly. Dig deep, traveler, it's worth the climb.

Panka, Peter - Peter Panka's Jane Live At Rockpalast-Bonn 2004 2PC CD $22.99
Peter Panka's Jane Live At Rockpalast-Bonn 2004 - Of the eleven albums that Jane released on Brain between 1972 and 1982 alone, more than two million copies were sold. Cult status albums like their debut "Together" (1972), the successor "Here we are" (1973) or "Lady" (1975), "Fire, Water, Earth & Air" and "Live At Home", both released in 1976 and characterized by powerful organ driven melodic rock, are classified in German rock history as mile stones. The live recorded album "Live At Home" even became the bands' bestseller receiving the "Golden Brain Label" from the record company in September 1977. This era is characterized by tours throughout Europe, TV performances, permanent radio presence and sold-out concerts. - To fit the nostalgic occasion at the "Krautrockpalast" in December 2004 Peter Panka's Jane played a colorful best of program with the most important and popular tunes of their career. Indispensible alongside songs like 'Fire, Water, Earth & Air' or 'Daytime' were, of course, both outstanding compositions of the band, the wonderful dreamy 'Out In The Rain' and the vigorous piece 'Hangman', a classy boogie rocker with an orgiastic guitar solo. The concert at the Bonn "Harmonie" ends with the ballad 'So, So Long', a number which today - after more than twelve years and many Jane shows later - almost sounds like a farewell to singer and drummer Peter Panka.

But their greatest line-up broke up in the late 1960's, and where not to reform for nearly 30 years. And when they did, the results were generally deemed to be pretty unsatisfactory. However, as early as 1982 the two prime movers teamed up with original chanteuse Nico, for this historic album which was recorded during a live show at the Bataclan club in Paris, on January 29, 1972, and was originally broadcast on French TV. The concert marked the first time since the breakup of The Velvet Underground that Reed, Cale and Nico were on stage together. Get ready for a little slice of history.

Various Artists - Gotta Get Up: Songs Of Harry Nilsson 1965-1972 UK Import CD $14.99
UK collection. Bookended by his daughter Annie's recording of the title track and Andy Williams' version of 'Remember (Christmas)', this release in Ace Records' highly regarded Songwriters series celebrates the one and only Harry Nilsson. It's one of the great paradoxes of contemporary pop music that Nilsson, one of the most talented and respected American songwriters of the 20th century, is primarily remembered for his stone classic recordings of two songs written by others: Fred Neil's 'Everybody's Talkin' and Badfinger's 'Without You'. Gotta Get Up aims to remedy that by spotlighting two-dozen Nilsson songs from the years 1965 to 1972, including several of which he made no official recordings. Among the highlights are 'Cuddly Toy' and 'Daddy's Song' performed by Nilsson champions the Monkees, Al Kooper's harmony-filled recording of 'Mournin' Glory Story', Canadian folkie Tom Northcott's version of Nilsson's autobiographical '1941' and the MFQ's Phil Spector-produced 'This Could Be The Night', one of Brian Wilson's favorite records.

Waters, Roger - Is This The Life We Really Want? CD $14.99
2017 release from the rock icon. Roger Waters, the creative power and songwriting force behind Pink Floyd, presents Is This The Life We Really Want ?, his first rock album in 25 years. The album is produced and mixed by Nigel Godrich (Radiohead, Paul McCartney, Beck, U2), and includes 12 new Roger Waters musical compositions and studio performances. Roger Waters' last studio album, 1992's Amused To Death, was a prescient study of popular culture, exploring the power of television in the era of the First Gulf War. This long-awaited follow-up, Is This The Life We Really Want ?, is an unflinching commentary on the modern world and uncertain times, and a natural successor to such classic Pink Floyd albums as Animals and The Wall. The musicians on Is This The Life We Really Want? are: Roger Waters (vocals, acoustic, bass), Nigel Godrich (arrangement, sound collages, keyboards, guitar), Gus Seyffert (bass, guitar, keyboards), Jonathan Wilson (guitar, keyboards), Joey Waronker (drums), Roger Mannning (keyboards), Lee Pardini (keyboards) and Lucius (vocals) with Jessica Wolfe and Holly Proctor.
Westbrook, Mike - Live 1972 UK Import CD $19.99
Young, Neil - Decade CD $19.99
Two CDs. Digitally remastered edition. Decade is a compilation by Neil Young, originally released in 1977 as a triple album.

It peaked at #43 on the Billboard Top Pop Albums chart, and was certified platinum by the RIAA in 1986. Compiled by Young himself, with his hand-written liner notes about each track, Decade represents almost every album from his career and various affiliations through 1977 with the exception of Four Way Street and Time Fades Away. Of the previously unreleased songs, "Down to the Wire" features the New Orleans pianist Dr. John with Buffalo Springfield on an item from their shelved Stampede album; "Love Is a Rose" was a minor hit for Linda Ronstadt in 1975; "Winterlong" received a cover by Pixies on the Neil Young tribute album from 1989, The Bridge; and "Campaigner" is a Young song critical of Richard Nixon. The track "Long May You Run" is a different mix to that found on the album of the same name, featuring the harmonies of the full Crosby Stills & Nash before David Crosby and Graham Nash left the recording sessions.
Zorn, John - Midsummer Moons CD $15.99
Blue Cheer - Vincebus Eruptum SACD $28.99
Many have drawn a line from '70s metal back to the thunderous rocking blues of late-'60s Blue Cheer. Bands engaged in experimental rock, garage, stoner rock and grunge owe a debt to this San Francisco group, too; they exploded onto the charts in '68 with this #11 LP and their hit spin on "Summertime Blues. Blue Cheer originally formed in 1966 in San Francisco, California as a sextet. This early line-up did not last though as numerous members departed soon after. Vocalist and bassist Dickie Peterson (R. I. P) then reformed the group with guitarist Leigh Stephens and drummer Paul Whaley, in the process becoming the dynamic trio it is now known as today. According to research, the group's name was taken from a potent form of LSD that was derived from a laundry detergent (supposedly called "Blue Cheer"). In 1968 Blue Cheer released their first album, "Vincebus Eruptum" (some say the title is Latin for "controlled chaos" or "conquering explosion" while others say it is a nonexistent term). On this album Blue Cheer radiates extreme decibels of noise by turning up the volume to maximum capacity on their monolithic wall of Marshall amplifiers. " Their sonic assaults-which also include "Parchman Farm," "Rock Me Baby," "Doctor Please" and more-come through with stunning clarity on this hybrid SACD, available now in a limited, numbered edition! Audio Fidelity.
Dylan, Bob - Times They Are A-changin' SACD-Hybrid $39.99
Limited Mobile Fidelity SACD hybrid pressing. Immediately distinguished by the you're-either-with-us-or-against-us messages of the landmark title track, Bob Dylan's The Times They Are A-Changin' sounds an unmistakable clarion call on behalf of progress and it's unstoppable advancement. One of the Bard's trademark songs, it remains a timeless anthem with a clear sense of common purpose, a musical line in the sand that helped unite various social movements and multiple generations. The reverential 1964 record feeds off the opening tune and it's unmistakable sentiments, marching forward to confront racism, poverty, injustice, and upheaval in a stark, immediate manner unlike few albums before or since. Marking a shift from the looseness and comedy that pepper the preceding The Freewheelin' Bob Dylan, The Times They Are A-Changin' skirts any attempt at humor, sarcasm, or goofiness in favor of utmost seriousness and severity. Seemingly anticipating the dark events surrounding President Kennedy's assassination and the turmoil that followed, Dylan eliminates with conjecture and disguise. Akin to dispatches from the typewriter of literary icons John Steinbeck and William Faulkner, his songs give voices to the voiceless, challenge cultural precepts, upend traditional beliefs with rapier wit and truths, and underline tragedies swept under the rug. As correctly relayed by Dylan expert and cultural critic Greil Marcus, "[The record] forever fixed Bob Dylan in the popular imagination: the protest singer, the young man 'able to see through metal' (again, from Chronicles), to see through the lie and find the truth, then to hammer the truth into words and send them out with a voice that would never break."
Procol Harum - Salty Dog SACD $39.99
Limited numbered hybrid SACD from Mobile Fidelity. Mastered from original master tapes. Procol Harum stood apart for it's aptitude to blend classical figures with rock motifs without coming across as self-indulgent or contrived. Graced with commanding mood pieces, the group's 1969 album - appointed with evocative artwork that pays homage to the Player's Navy Cut logo - exhibits the band's distinctive talents and genre-jumping breadth with an idyllic fusion of performance, composition, and sound.
Spirit - Family That Plays Together SACD $28.99
The Family That Plays Together was originally released in December 1968. On this, the second Spirit album, the group put all of the elements together that made them the legendary band that they were. More than it's predecessor, Spirit, their self-titled and surreal debut, The Family That Plays Together displays the band's ability to play beyond the genre of psychedelic rock. Jazz, rock & roll, and even classical elements combined to create one of the cleanest, most tasteful syntheses of it's day. The group had also improved measurably from their fine debut album, especially in the area of vocals. The album's hit single, "I Got a Line on You," boasts especially strong harmonies as well as one of the greatest rock riffs of the period. - The album's title was inspired by the stepson-stepfather relationship between guitarist Randy California and percussionist Ed Cassidy. The album cover was shot at the Sunset Highland Motel, located at 6830 Sunset Boulevard in Hollywood, California, just across from Hollywood High School. - Spirit's songs covered about every subject under the sun. The first half of the recording is a wonderful and seamless suite, and taken in it's entirety, one of the greatest sides on Los Angeles rock. The SACD includes some excellent bonus tracks. "So Little to Say" is one of Jay Ferguson's finest compositions ever, and the jazz-inspired instrumentals such as "Fog" and "Space Chile" showcase pianist John Locke as one of the most inspired and lyrical players in the rock idiom. All in all, a classic album and a true landmark. - Tracks such as "It Shall Be" and "Silky Sam" demonstrate the ease with which the ensemble can incorporate jazz into their idiosyncratic form of rock, while "Jewish" and "Aren't You Glad" show the band's competence in exploiting both world music and jam rock.
Spirit - Spirit SACD $28.99
Stealers Wheel - Stealers Wheel SACD $35.99
'Stuck in the Middle Top-Ten Hit Single in the UK and US! FM Radio Classic Stuck in the Middle Immortalized in Quentin Tarantino's Reservoir Dogs! 'K-Billy's Super Sounds of the '70s weekend just keeps on truckin'...' The short but legendary recording career of Stealers Wheel is defined by the pinnacle reached with it's first two albums. Listening to this extraordinary debut effort it's easy to hear why many thought Gerry Rafferty and Joe Egan's Stealer's Wheel would become the UK's answer to Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young. The duo's distinctive style is in full evidence, marrying ultra-catchy hooks and melodies to thoughtful lyrics and gorgeous vocal harmonies. As a band, Stealers Wheel was already disintegrating even as it was being formed. Players were being shifted in and out of the lineup right up to the recording sessions for this debut record, and leader Gerry Rafferty split from the band before the LP's official release (see the vintage video for 'Stuck in the Middle' below, with Egan miming the lead vocal in Rafferty's absence!). However, as 'Stuck in the Middle' streaked up the charts in the US and the UK, peaking at #6 in the US, Rafferty came back and the band eventually became Rafferty and Egan with backing players in the studio and on tour. Songs from Stealers Wheel's stellar first pair of LPs have gotten steady airplay since they were released, and of course Gerry Rafferty's breakout success with his solo album City to City shined a bright light on his earlier efforts. Stealers Wheel became an indelible element of pop culture for new generations when maverick director Quentin Tarantino built a major set piece of his own debut Reservoir Dogs around the infectious hooks of 'Stuck in the Middle.' The scene is as grisly as it is unforgettable and of course it's set up brilliantly by Steven Wright's voice as the world's dryest DJ Format: SACD, Hybrid, Stereo, Remastered:

And a 40-page booklet full of liner notes and archival photos. You also get previously unreleased bonus tracks, and all these albums have been newly remastered from the original tapes: I.O.U. (1982), Road Games (1983), Metal Fatigue (1985), Atavachron (1986), Sand (1987), Secrets (1989), Wardenclyffe Tower (1992), Hard Hat Area (1993), None Too Soon (1996), The Sixteen Men Of Tain (2000), Flat Tire (2001) and Then! (2003). These albums, many of which have been out of print and very hard to find for years, include one intriguing composition, ethereal track, dazzling fusion rocker and daredevil guitar passage after another.

Ashley, Robert - Crash - 2PC CD $24.99
Ashton Gardner & Dyke - Ashton Gardner & Dyke CD $16.99
Digitally remastered and expanded edition. Ashton, Gardner and Dyke were a power rock trio, most popular in the early 1970s. They are best remembered for their song, "Resurrection Shuffle", a transatlantic Top 40 success in 1971. Their debut album is a markedly different beast than fans of their former bands, the Remo Four and Creation, might have expected. Heavily influenced by the trio's shared love for jazz-rock, it's nine songs are moods as much as music, only occasionally stepping out into something instantly recognizable - distinctive covers of the Bee Gees' "New York Mining Disaster 1941" and Mose Allison's "Young Man Blues" are highlights. But the album peaks with it's closing track, "As It Was in the First Place" a lengthy Ashton adaptation from the classical "Adagio from Concierto de Aranjuez." With an arrangement borrowed from the Modern Jazz Quartet's own interpretation of the piece (among Tony Ashton's idols, few were more significant than MJQ's John Lewis), Ashton and Roy Dyke had already had one stab at the track, recording it with producer George Harrison during the last days of the Remo Four. The new version completely rewired that earlier performance, and stands as one of the pinnacles of British jazz-rock. The single "Maiden Voyage" offers another, while the group's sense of humor is well-evidenced by the similarly titled and themed pieces "Billy and his Piano Without" and "Billy and His Piano With."
Atomic Rooster - Devil's Answer - Atomic Rooster CD $16.99

Their genre in music is difficult to define since they went through radical changes in very short times during the life of the band. However, their best-known era represented a more hard rock/progressive rock sound. This CD is a collection of the band's radio broadcasts.

Brown, Arthur - Arthur Brown's Kingdom Come (Manchester Free Trade Hall Live 1973) CD $16.99
Though Arthur Brown never released another recording as commercially successful as "Fire", he worked with a varied group of musicians on projects called Strangelands, Puddletown Express, and (briefly) the Captain Beefheart-influenced Rustic Hinge, before releasing three albums with his new band Kingdom Come in the early 1970s. The stage acts for all three albums featured a wild mix of special effects, dramatic costumes and colourful theatrics, which were sometimes controversial. Brown had declared when Kingdom Come was formed that the intention was to create a multi-media experience and the band always followed that policy. The concepts, the music and the theatrics proved very popular on the university circuit but proved too way-out for a mainstream audience. This album captures Arthur Brown and Kingdom Come at their live pinnacle and shows them at their blistering best on stage in front of a wildly enthusiastic audience.

Jansen, Steve - Extinct Suite CD $16.99

Fast forward to 2007, after many years collaborating with artists such as Richard Barbieri, Yukihiro Takahashi, Ryuichi Sakamoto, and Bernd Friedmann, Steve released his debut, solo album Slope.

Not a remix by any means, some familiar passages are woven together with additional pieces to create a suite of instrumentals lasting over 55 minutes as one single track. Written, performed, produced and mixed by Steve Jansen. Personnel: Steve Jansen - piano, synths, sampled instruments, string arrangements, sound design; Additional contributors: Melentini Toila - trumpet; Seigen Tokuzawa - cello; Thomas Feiner - background vocals; Stelios Romaliadis - flute; Giorgos Varoutas - guitar treatments.

His inspiration for the newly added parts on Oxygene 3 was not to go back in time, but to add a sense of "now" to his iconic piece of work. Plunging into the environment of Oxygene with it's highly original dark, moody and at times quite upbeat musical language, Jarre references some of the music from his entire body of work on Oxygene 3. It s a state-of-the-art recording, embracing both classic and modern ways of music production.

Jazz Passengers - Still Life With Trouble CD $14.99
Jethro Tull - An Introduction To CD $8.99
Jethro Tull - Jethro Tull - The String Quartets CD $16.99
A massive treat for Jethro Tull fans and classical aficionados alike: The String Quartets is an album of classic Jethro Tull repertoire, imaginatively arranged for Classical string quartet with the flute, guitar and vocals of songwriter and producer Ian Anderson. For some time, Ian (Jethro Tull frontman and virtuoso flautist) and John O'Hara (keyboard player with Tull and Anderson) had discussed the prospect of a specially conceived album of classic Jethro Tull repertoire orchestrated for a string quartet. Ian and John first saw the Carducci Quartet at the London Symphony Orchestra's LSO St Luke's and, mesmerized by the group's symbiotic relationship which results in their playing as one single musical organism, Ian invited them to take part in the recording. Two violins, a viola and a cello make up that perfect combination of instruments that is the string quartet. Composers such as Beethoven, Bartók and Britten have written for it, and Anderson's music is reborn in this format. With judicious additions of flute, acoustic guitar and mandolin along with a few vocal sections, this album offers Tull fans the opportunity to enjoy familiar melodies and songs within the styling and traditions of Classical Music.

Leimer, K. - Closed System Potentials CD $15.99
Following the RVNG reissues of A Period Of Review and Artificial Dance, Closed System Potentials, recorded in 1979 and originally released in 1980, finds it's way back to CD. In their review of A Period of Review, Pitchfork said, "These pieces most closely evoke the work of Roedelius and Moebius in Cluster: meditative, wistful, lovely, giving off gentle glimmers of light. In trying to think if the closest American corollary for this set, the possibility emerges that Kerry Leimer is one of the lone examples of American kosmische music, that elegant hybrid that falls somewhere between the Velvets-style mesmerism of Can in the early '70s and the placid tones of new age music that arose in the next decade. It's a sound that applies to mid-'70s Cluster, Ash Ra Tempel, Popul Vuh, the second side of Kraftwerk's Autobahn, and others."

Marino, Frank - Juggernaut RM, With Book, UK - Import CD $18.99
Digitally remastered edition of this 1982 album from the legendary guitarist. Includes 16 page full-color booklet, new essay about the making of the album, enhanced artwork and previously unseen photos. For Frank, despite his reputation for endless soloing, the goal was always about crafting songs that had meaning and weight. Nowhere is this better demonstrated than on the Juggernaut album. Recorded and released in 1982, the record showcases Frank in spectacular form, setting out a stall that solidly welds his penchant for blistering hard rock and memorable songs. The title track alone is arguably his greatest triumph, fusing a rock solid riff with a synthetic dusting of melody.
Marino, Frank - Power Of Rock N Roll RM, With Book, UK - Import CD $18.99
Digitally remastered edition of this 1981 album from the legendary guitarist. Includes 16 page full-color booklet, new essay about the making of the album, enhanced artwork and previously unseen photos. Released in 1981 and once again self-produced, The Power Of Rock And Roll was a triumph, seeing Frank setting fire to convention with a collection of hard hitting, no nonsense rock that sounded like a defiant call to arms. It also signaled other major changes; splitting with long time management Leber-Krebs and cementing the appointment of his brother Vince Marino, on rhythm guitar, as a full time member of the group. Sharper, infinitely more focused and taking no prisoners, the eight tracks are veritable firecrackers, making good on his intent to deliver a record that, by all rights, should have catapulted him to sizeable success beyond his cult appeal.
Marino, Frank & Mahogany Rush - Live Bonus Tracks, RM, With Book, UK - Import CD $18.99
Digitally remastered and expanded edition of this live album from the legendary guitarist. Includes two bonus tracks plus 16 page full-color booklet, new essay about the making of the album, enhanced artwork and previously unseen photos. The commonly held belief about Frank Marino, leader of Mahogany Rush, is that he was motivated by the dead spirit of Jimi Hendrix. This was a misquote taken from an early interview which persisted throughout his career and, to a degree, still dogs his activities to this very day. Of course it was pure hokum and a myth utilized to successfully advance his presence in the market place. Harnessing a wealth of strong material the band recorded several dates on their 1977 world tour in order to compile a comprehensive selection of choice cuts. Of course Frank's guitar is the prominent instrument showcasing incredible fluidity and aggression as well as an obvious nod in the style of Jimi Hendrix, but as a power trio the dexterous support of bassist Paul Harwood and drummer Jimmy Ayoub makes the recordings all the more arresting. We've added two bonus tracks taken from the bands performance at the 1978 California Jam II festival held in front of an impressive 350,000 fans.
Marino, Frank & Mahogany Rush - What's Next RM, With Book, UK - Import CD $18.99
Digitally remastered edition of this 1980 album from the legendary guitarist. Includes 16 page full-color booklet, new essay about the making of the album, enhanced artwork and previously unseen photos. Amazingly this was Frank Marino's seventh studio album in almost as many years, an accomplishment made even more impressive by the amount of live work that he had stashed under his belt. Marino had become a notorious road dog, playing everywhere and anywhere, helping to establish him as one of the great showmen of the era. What's Next was an important milestone in Frank's career, not only because the music was getting far more precise but because the band had expanded to a four piece after years working as a power trio.

2017 release. 50 Years of Blonde on Blonde was recorded live at the CMA Theater located inside the historic Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum located in Nashville, TN in May 2016. The album was mixed by Grammy Award-winning Ted Hutt and Ryan Mall. "Fifty years is a long time for a place like Nashville, Tennessee. Time rolls on slowly around here like flotsam and jetsam in the muddy Cumberland River. But certain things have accelerated the pace of our city. And certain people have sent the hands of the clock spinning. Bob Dylan is the greatest of these time-bending, paradigm-shifting Nashville cats," says Ketch Secor, the primary vocalist of the Old Crow Medicine Show. "By deciding to record his newly found rock n' roll voice in 1966 Nashville, Bob swung the gates of country music wide open; so wide, in fact, that 50 years later there was still enough of a crack left for Old Crow Medicine Show to sneak it's banjos and fiddles through the gates with string band swagger."

Osi - Blood CD $13.99
Pacific Gas & Electric - Pacific Gas & Electric Holland - Import CD $15.99
Partridge, Andy - Powers UK - Import CD $13.99
Reissue of this 2010 experimental release from the former leader of XTC. CD in jewel case with 12 pages of sleeve notes and illustrations by long-time Ape House sleeve artist Andrew Swainson. A Long time ago, in a library far away, (well, Swindon, actually), a shy schoolboy who loved books but was a slow reader, borrowed three science fiction books per week. He didn't read them. Instead, mesmerized by the covers, he imagined his own stories to match the cover paintings which he stared at intently for hours. Richard M. Powers had been the principal artist, illustrator among illustrators and guide to unleashing Andy Partridge's imagination among the stars and galaxies. Andy's response was to record a sort of soundtrack to the paintings which had been so inspirational to him. The resulting album conjures, via 12 enigmatic pieces - akin to a virtual Musique concrete (with the computer/editing process replacing the more cumbersome scissors/tape method) - a musical accompaniment to the variety of alien landscapes which Powers illustrated so profusely. It also works as a standalone album of experimental music.
Pell, Axel Rudi - The Ballads V CD $15.99
Even if you are not attending the mighty School of Rock, you know one of those bloody emotional moments when the lead guitar sings it's way through the solo and the chorus comes back while you are flying on the wings of heaven. Or something else. We all need a little bit of silence sometimes, just to stop from being part of this crazy world we live in. One of the finest moments on this ballad compilation is the new song "On The Edge Of Our Time", being one of the best ballads he's ever written to date. But the climax of "The Ballads V" is without a doubt the fascinating new song "Love's Holding On". Singer Johnny Gioeli is joined by Bonnie Tyler here! There are 9 more songs, of course, pretty much known from his previous albums (e.g. Neil Young' "Hey Hey My My " and Deep Purple' "Mistreated") which wraps up another classic, dynamic and high-quality Axel Rudi Pell album. As one fan from Israel said on Facebook: "If there was justice in the music business, your ballads would be as big as the Scorpions one."

Schenker, Michael - Fest: Live Tokyo International Forum Hall A with DVD, 3PC CD $21.99
35 years have passed since the legendary MSG concert Live At The Budokan. Like a miracle Michael Schenker returns to Japan with his past original singers from the '80's to celebrate the Michael Schenker Fest with Gary Barden, Graham Bonnet and Robin McAuley at the amazing Tokyo International Forum. 5000 fans witnessed an anthology moment of quintessential hard rock music of the highest caliber. It's a miracle that after all these years, something like this took place with the original band members of MSG. Being able to go back to those days and celebrate the music is an exciting experience for the band, as well as for old and new fans. To being able to re-experience, and for the new audience to get a feel of what it was like, is incredibly enjoyable. For Michael Schenker it was an amazing feeling to have all of his MSG Family from the '80's performing together and especially with Graham Bonnet, who he never got to play any concerts after their Assault Attack album that was originally released in 1982. Fortunately, being able to have the participation of original MSG members such as Gary Barden, Chris Glen and Ted McKenna being part of it, and somehow, to perform with Robin McAuley and Steve Mann again as well, was pretty awesome for Michael Schenker.

Summers, Andy - Triboluminescence UK - Import CD $14.99
2017 release from the veteran British guitarist. Triboluminescence is the follow up recording by Andy Summers to his 2016 release Metal Dog. In this release, Summers once again delves into the deep exotic textures which characterized Metal Dog saying that part of his quest is always to find fresh if not alien sounds that avoid all the standard electric guitar cliches. If Summers takes a position on his music, he proves it with the disparate exotic threads and lyricism heard on the tracks of Triboluminescence - generated from non-standard tunings hammered guitars in tandem, looping, baritone guitar, terz guitar percussion and fretless bass and cello. Summers plays all instruments on the album apart from cello by Artyom Manukian
Sun Ra - Thunder Of The Gods - Wallet CD $14.99
Years after Herman Poole "LeSony'r Ra" Blount "left the planet" he's still trying to reach us, to wake us up and to change our destiny. Sun Ra and the Arkestra weren't a traditional studio band, and every star in the vast galaxy of their discography reflects this. The origins of these records can be hard to pinpoint at times, but when it comes to Thunder Of The Gods, it's a bit easier.

As LeRoi Jones wrote, "Sun Ra was only musician in my mind, not just because of his otherworldliness of the tale, but the sensuous outness. I knew Ra, with his (then titled, the name changed continuously) Myth-Science Arhestra, would bring, which I felt give a material life to the text".

Various Artists - Many Faces Of Jimi Hendrix / Various 3PC CD $12.99
2017 triple CD collection celebrating the music of guitar legend Jimi Hendrix. We start Disc One with Hendrix playing with Curtis Knight, a little-known Harlem artist, who had his own band, The Squires, in which Jimi played for a while. Next, we find Jimi playing with rock and roll pioneer Little Richard on the track 'I Do Not Know What You've Got But It's Got Me'. Then, we meet Noel Redding and Mitch Mitchell, bass player and drummer of Experience, the trio with whom Hendrix became a superstar, guided by the hand of producer and manager Chas Chandler. We can hear Mitch Mitchell playing with Bruce Cameron, a fantastic guitarist with a style very reminiscent of Hendrix. We also include in The Many Faces the band Cork, that Noel Redding created along Corky Laing (from Mountain) and with guitarist Eric Schenkman from the Spin Doctors. The second CD of The Many Faces consists of recording sessions prior to Jimi's rise to stardom, some alongside saxophonist Lonnie Youngblood, others with the very same Experience (a brilliant version of the song 'Red House') and also with Little Richard's band. Finally, on CD 3 we immerse ourselves in Jimi's repertoire, his fantastic songs, songs that sometimes have ended up being eclipsed by the fact that he was a guitar God. These recordings are performed by artists who in many cases have Hendrix's music as a starting point for their own career.

They succeed in triumphant fashion on Ballet, the second collaboration between Cuong Vu and Bill Frisell.
Wakeman, Rick - Simply Accoustic with DVD CD $16.99
CD reissue. Here with just a grand piano, Wakeman manages to roll thirty-plus years of music into an entertaining and quite rewarding trip down memory lane in front of a live audience. He gives forth with arrangements of his work from every point in his career, from his time with the Strawbs ("A Glimpse Of Heaven"), his days as a marathon session musician (David Bowie's "Space Oddity," Cat Stevens' "Morning Has Broken"), his various stints with Yes and ABWH (a lovely version of "Wonderous Stories" and a medley of "The Meeting" and "And You And I") and high points from his solo career in the bargain. Wakeman intersperses these performances with stories of how the songs and pieces were written, and he is a natural racounter and howlingly funny at times. If the music thing doesn't work out, he'd make a killing doing stand-up comedy in the Catskills! All told, Simply Acoustic is a concert recording that makes you wish you'd actually been there.

This trio of works represents quite different facets of Jansch's talent; where Circus is a bluesy, late-night sounding party, Ornament is altogether more subdued, drawing on Maggie Boyle's bodhran, flute and whistles to creative a sound that is nothing if not celtic. Toy Balloon falls somewhere in the middle, with that feeling of intimacy that is so Bert. Despite these apparent contrasts, the unifying element is of course, Jansch's guitar. There is an ease about these albums that suggests a musician that has found himself very at home-"just a simple soul", to quote the man himself. The real draw here for many Jansch fans will be disc four: unreleased tracks (including - let joy be unconfined! - one with John Renbourn), as well as alternative takes of familiar songs from the '90s period. Chosen specifically for their contrast to the studio versions, these tracks are often more stripped-down or without the embellishment typical of the era. Mostly recorded at Bert's home studio, this unheard and unreleased collection, transferred from Bert's own DAT tapes, has a intimate quality that is incredibly moving.

Ashton, Tony & Friends - Live At Abbey Road - With DVD, 2PC CD $22.99
Deluxe two CD + DVD edition of this live release from the British musician. Includes musical appearances from Jon Lord, Ian Paice, Bernie Marsden, Micky Moody, Neil Murray, John Entwhistle, Zak Starkey (Ringo's son), Zoot Money, Chris Barber and others. As you might expect given that it was recorded at Abbey Road, the sound quality is absolutely first rate. The concert itself was a magical event and this release captures the vibe perfectly. It all starts in earnest when Ewan McGregor introduces the main man himself and Tony Ashton and his band perform their set. Following on from the Ashton set we get the reformed version of the classic late 70's / early-80's formation of Whitesnake AKA Company of Snakes (Jon Lord, Ian Paice, Bernie Marsden, Micky Moody, Neil Murray, with Stefan Berggren handling David Coverdale's duties). These guys dish up a set of crowd-pleasing favorites from yesteryear that really give the old aficionado's in the audience exactly what the doctor ordered.

This release is a must for all Tony Ashton fans (obviously), as well as any fans of the original Whitesnake and Paice Ashton Lord. Fans of Deep Purple should enjoy this and general fans of British rock/jazz/blues should appreciate it.

Bowie, David - David Live (2005 Mix) - Remastered, 2PC CD $17.99
Digitally remastered two CD edition. David Live is David Bowie's first official live album, originally released by RCA Records in 1974. The album was recorded in July of that year, on the initial leg of Bowie's US Diamond Dogs Tour, at the Tower Theater in Upper Darby, PA, a suburb of Philadelphia. The album catches Bowie in transition from the Ziggy Stardust/Aladdin Sane glam-rock era of his career to the 'plastic soul' of Young Americans. While the cover featured a picture of Bowie in his latest soul threads - baggy trouser suit complete with shoulder pads and braces from October 1974 - the music was recorded in July of that year when he was showcasing his two most recent studio albums of original material, Diamond Dogs and Aladdin Sane, as well as selected favorites from Ziggy Stardust and earlier.
Bowie, David - Diamond Dogs - Remastered CD $13.99
Digitally remastered edition. Diamond Dogs is the eighth studio album by rock icon David Bowie, released on 24 May 1974 on RCA Records. Thematically, it was a marriage of the novel Nineteen Eighty-Four by George Orwell and Bowie's own glam-tinged vision of a post-apocalyptic world. Bowie had wanted to make a theatrical production of Orwell's book and began writing material after completing sessions for his 1973 album Pin Ups, but the author's estate denied the rights. The songs wound up on the second half of Diamond Dogs instead where, as the titles indicated, the Nineteen Eighty-Four theme was prominent.
Bowie, David - Live Nassau Coliseum '76 - 2PC CD $17.99
Two CD edition. Reissue of this live set from the rock icon originally released as part of the 2010 Special Edition reissue of Station To Station Recorded live at the Nassau Coliseum Uniondale, NY, U.S.A., 23rd March, 1976 during his Isolar Tour 1976 in support of Station to Station.
Bowie, David - Station To Station - Remastered CD $13.99
Digitally remastered edition. Station to Station is the tenth studio album by rock legend David Bowie, released by RCA Records in 1976. Commonly regarded as one of his most significant works, Station To Station was the vehicle for his performance persona, the Thin White Duke. Musically, Station to Station was a transitional album for Bowie, developing the funk and soul music of his previous release, Young Americans, while presenting a new direction towards synthesizers and motorik rhythms that was influenced by German electronic bands such as Neu! And Kraftwerk. Blending funk and krautrock, romantic balladry and occultism, Station To Station has been described as "simultaneously one of Bowie's most accessible albums and his most impenetrable". Preceded by the single "Golden Years", it made the top five in both the UK and US charts.
Bowie, David - Young Americans - Remastered CD $13.99
Digitally remastered edition. Young Americans is the ninth studio album by rock icon David Bowie, released on 7 March 1975 by RCA Records. The album marked a departure from the glam rock style of Bowie's previous albums, instead showcasing his mid-1970s interest in African-American soul and R&B music. Initial recording sessions for Young Americans took place in Philadelphia with producer Tony Visconti and a variety of musicians, including guitarist Carlos Alomar, to become one of Bowie's most frequent collaborators, and singer Luther Vandross. Bowie drew influence from the sound of "local dance halls", which were blaring with "lush strings, sliding hi-hat whispers, and swanky R&B rhythms of Philadelphia Soul." Later sessions took place in New York, and included contributions from John Lennon. Bowie would call the album's sound "plastic soul", describing it as "the squashed remains of ethnic music as it survives in the age of muzak rock, written and sung by a white limey".
Byrds - Boston Tea Party - Canada - Import CD $33.99
Chicago - Chicago II (Steven Wilson Remix) - Remix CD $15.99
Digitally remixed - by Steven Wilson - and remastered version of this 1970 release. For the first time, a stereo remix from the 16-track multi-track tapes made it possible for Steven Wilson to bring out elements that were muffled or submerged in the mix. The result is a new stereo version of Chicago II that boasts clearness, punch and definition that it didn't have before. Chicago II yielded some of the group's most enduring hits, which came from Pankow's suite "Ballet For A Girl In Buchannon," emulating the form of the great classical composers from a pop perspective. The album peaked at #4 on the Billboard charts. With the success of Chicago II, radio went back and discovered hits on the earlier Chicago Transit Authority album.

Delaney & Bonnie & Friends - Motel Shot - Expanded Version CD $19.99
Though they never achieved the popular success enjoyed by some of their peers, Delaney & Bonnie Bramlett spearheaded the roots-rock revolution of the late '60s and early '70s along with The Allman Brothers and The Band, turning away from the exoticism of psychedelia towards music "rooted" in blues, country, and soul. Witness the fact that the "And Friends" that played with the pair included Eric Clapton, George Harrison, Leon Russell, Dave Mason and Bobby Whitlock... out of Delaney and Bonnie's various aggregations arose Derek and the Dominoes and Joe Cocker's band for the legendary Mad Dogs and Englishmen tour. And for Motel Shot, the duo's fourth studio album and their third for Atco/Atlantic, the circle of "friends" included Cocker, Whitlock, and Mason, plus appearances by Duane Allman, Gram Parsons, and John Hartford among others!
East of Eden - New Leaf CD $17.99
Prog Temple present a reissue of East of Eden's New Leaf, originally released in 1971. East of Eden had an unexpected top ten UK hit with "Jig-A-Jig" in early 1971. By that time they had undergone various changes in personnel and musical approach, though they were still led by violinist Dave Arbus (who guested on The Who's "Baba O'Riley" the same year). New Leaf was originally issued that November and found the band in fine form with a mixture of progressive and more laidback material. It makes a welcome return to CD here, together with background notes and images.

Giltrap, Gordon - Last Of England - UK - Import CD $17.99
2017 release. The Last Of England is an innovative album that crosses several styles from prog to folk rock to pop to classical in the unique style that Gordon has developed and honed over his career. Gordon Giltrap became a household name with his crossover and breakthrough in 1978 and over the past 40 years he has played his music in pretty much every kind of venue from the grandeur of Birmingham's Symphony Hall to small halls where he relishes the challenge of where audiences are "up close and intimate". Gordon has teamed up with keyboard player/producer Paul Ward who has a sizeable number of music production credits under his belt including a Christmas animation with David Jason and a drama mini series starring Martin Kemp, to produce his new album.
Goldberg, Barry - Street Man / Blast From My Pasts - UK - Import CD $13.99

Barry Goldberg'S career began in the early '60s playing with the likes of Howlin Wolf and Muddy Waters. In 1965 he played keyboards for Bob Dylan at the now legendary Newport Jazz Festival when Dylan went electric. In 1967, along with Mike Bloomfield he formed The Electric Flag.

Haslinger, Paul - Resident Evil: The Final Chapter - O.s.t. CD $15.99
Hayward, Charles & Gigi Masin - Les Nouvelles Musiques De Chambre 2 - Remastered, Reissue CD $16.99
Digitally remastered edition. Following the reissue of the entire recorded output of South London-based experimental act This Heat and it's successor, Camberwell Now, Modern Classics Recordings holds the lens up to a special split album created by one of the driving forces behind those groups - drummer Charles Hayward - in collaboration with Italian musician Gigi Masin, whose looping, rhythmic, electronic compositions have seen his cult following grow in his four decades as a recording artist. Originally released on Belgium's Sub Rosa label in 1989, Les Nouvelles Musiques de Chambre Volume 2 is a split LP on which Masin's eight tracks occupy side A and Charles Hayward's long-form piece (at 21 minutes long), "Thames Water Authority", occupies side B. Geography may have separated the two artists, who each recorded their pieces in isolation from the other, but there's a commonality to their approach. Previously, Masin had released the inspired 1986 album Wind, while Hayward's music had long been influenced by the landscape and society of London and the UK. For this album, the label challenged the two musicians to write about the waterways of their respective cities, Venice and London. For Masin, that meant describing the human interactions related to the Italian city's famous landmarks. "Places, faces, memories... that's what most of the people love to find when they travel to Venice - some kind of magic that's deep in the city," he writes in the new liner notes accompanying this re-release. For Hayward, it meant describing the physicality of water, the "densities and energies" as he puts it, and the politics of it too. Writes Hayward: "Water was being privatized at the time, the profit margin had been factored in, cost-cutting was implicit, people were being poisoned. Water was a political thing; it still is."
IQ - Wake: Expanded Edition - UK - Import CD $20.99
Digitally remastered and expanded edition. The Wake is the third studio album by the British neo-progressive rock band IQ and was released in 1985. It entered the UK album chart on 22 June 1985. It is the only album by IQ to enter the UK album chart. The cover art is by lead singer Peter Nicholls. Most of the characters in the image are original, but the central character is based on Rae Dawn Chong wearing clay face (and body) paint as Ika in the film Quest for Fire (1981). However, according to Nicholls, many of the band's fans misinterpreted this as a self-portrait, since he wore extensive stage makeup at the time.
Jansch, Bert - Live In Australia CD $24.99
Digitally remastered edition. There is something quite special about a live album - provided you can get over the envy at not having been present(!) It can sound a lot better than the gig itself without the risk of one's toes being trodden or a shower of a fellow reveler's beer. Certainly a Bert Jansch gig was a treat however you experienced it, especially when he was at the top of his game, as captured on Downunder: Live In Australia. Eschewing the familiar stalwarts of previous live sets, this memorable recording saw Jansch debut two new (at the time) songs; 'Downunder' and 'My Donald', as well as 'Little Max' which never had a studio outing (but will feature among the recently discovered home recordings in Earth's 2017 Living In The Shadows collection). There is a warmth about this recording which echoes that of Live at The 12 Bar, recorded three years before. It's mostly just Bert and his guitar, with the welcome addition of intuitively placed flourishes of bass and percussion. This ambience is heightened by Brian Pyle's sensitive remastering, bringing a real intimacy to this enduring collection of songs.

Kirke, Simon - All Because Of You CD $14.99
Kofi Baker's Cream Experience - Live In Bremen - 2PC CD $17.99
Led Bib - Umbrella Weather CD $15.99
Easily the most adventurous and audacious outfit on today's UK jazz scene, Led Bib has built a reputation over the course of seven albums for expansive improvisations and treks into genre defying music of throbbing intensity. For their RareNoise Records debut, the five - piece group from London continues pushing the envelope on Umbrella Weather. Fueled by the muscular drumming of ringleader Mark Holub and the intense fuzz bass lines of Liran Donin, further tweaked by atmospheric washes and crunchy keyboard action from Toby McLaren and sparked by the pungent twin alto saxes of Peter Grogan and Chris Williams, Led Bib stakes out a unique spot in the musical terrain that falls somewhere between the realms of John Zorn, Ornette Coleman, Charles Mingus and Eric Dolphy.
Lee, Albert - Black Claw & Country Fever CD $16.99
2017 collection from the British guitarist. This was originally a German release with a collection of late-'60s material from Albert Lee's groups Black Claw and Country Fever. This release finally sheds some light on this era in Alberts history. As the Black Claw and Country Fever sessions have always been shrouded by apocrypha and mystery. There were two bands, with the same members who went by both names. The only difference between them in 1969 was the Country Fever vocalist was Albert Lee, and the Black Crow vocalist was Chas Hodges. To make matters more confusing there was another Country Fever in England in 1969, and Lee played with them in live settings. While some of this gets ironed out by the liner notes, two things are certain: the first is that Lee played guitar and/or sang on everything here and that all of the material with the exception of his two solo singles - the title track and a cover of Bob Dylan's "Too Much of Nothing" - was recorded in 1969. As for the music itself, there are a hell of a lot of Dylan covers here, and they were all recorded just after Dylan himself released them: "Lay Lady Lay," "Tonight I'll Be Staying Here With You," and a great cover of the Dylan/Richard Manuel classic "Tears of Rage." The Band is also referenced outside of this cut by the inclusion of a cover of "Across the Great Divide." Other covers include tough, rollicking reads of "Six Days on the Road" and "Rocky Top.", all highly sought after. The production on this CD sounds contemporary still and the integrity of the performances wears as well or better than the Byrds' attempts at country-rock and still astonishes with it's sheer verve and virtuosity. For anyone interested in hard country and alt-country, this is an essential addition to the collection.
Leimer, K. - Grey Catalog CD $16.99
2015 release. The Grey Catalog departs from Leimer's typical obsessions with understatement and homogeneity to range freely across rhythmic, melodic and disassembled forms. Incorporating percussion, electric guitar and bass as well as found sound, digital and analog synthesis and sampled instruments, The Grey Catalog spins off multiple intimations of musical forms. Compiled over a two-year period, as diverse as the pieces are, they are also related by a shared generative technique and a shared library of voices and processing. Track selection for the final 15 was made from more than 30 pieces, and curated with the input of Matthew Werth, Paul Dickow, Greg Davis and Ron Schepper. The result is an album of highly personal music, restless and shifting forms, with melodic passages drawn over sets of self- regulating sources and shaped by chance.
Leimer, K. - Permissions CD $16.99
2012 release. Permissions is somewhat of a collaboration with Taylor Deupree, given that the 12k head is credited with "additional voices, post-production, edit, mix, and mastering." The detail isn't insignificant, either, as Permissions largely collapses whatever stylistic differences might normally separate 12k and Palace of Lights recordings. Arranged into concise song-like structures, the material exemplifies the concentration on fluttering micro-sound textures, electro-acoustic sounds, and field recordings that's shared by the two creators and often captured on a typical 12k release. Listed sans titles on the CD cover as simply Permissions 01-16, the settings function like snapshots that cumulatively provide an in-depth portrait of Leimer's range. The mood is generally laid-back, meditative, and explorative, but the elements drawn upon are not only pastoral in nature as industrial sounds surface, too. Despite their brevity, the pieces are often striking, such as the fourteenth, which gracefully augments a series of percussion accents with a rising ambient wave, and the sixteenth, which finds minute guitar plucks resonating against a crackling mass. Permissions offers a compelling document of Leimer's artistry.
Lord, Jon - Before I Forget: Expanded Version - Expanded Version, UK - Import CD $17.99
Digitally remastered and expanded edition. Before I Forget was originally released on Harvest Records in June 1982, when Jon Lord was moonlighting from tinkling the ivories in Whitesnake. Originally making his mark with the Artwoods and then playing keyboards with Deep Purple, Lord also enjoyed a series of significant side projects. Following Deep Purple's split in 1976, Lord joined Whitesnake for their 1978 debut Trouble. Before I Forget features an impressive cast of supporting musicians, including Whitesnake's Bernie Marsden and Neil Murray on guitar and bass respectively, drumming legends Ian Paice (Deep Purple and Whitesnake), Cozy Powell (Jeff Beck, Rainbow, Whitesnake, MSG & Black Sabbath) and Simon Philips (Judas Priest, Jeff Beck, MSG, Mike Oldfield and Toto). They're joined by the singing talents of Vicky and Sam Brown as well as Elmer Gantry, and topped off with appearances from Boz Burrell, Simon Kirke and Mick Ralphs courtesy of Bad Company. The original eight track album is augmented by the 7" edit of the single 'Bach Onto This' plus the b-side 'Going Home', as well as an outtake from the album, 'Ravel's Pavane'. Booklet contains contemporary photos from the release of the album and liner notes from bassist Neil Murray.

Meijer, Lavinia - Glass Effect - 2PC CD $14.99
The Music of Philip Glass
Moebius - Musik Fur Metropolis CD $17.99
Dieter Moebius (1944-2015) was one of the most important protagonists of avant-garde electronic music in Germany. He was a founding member of Kluster/Cluster (with Conrad Schnitzer and Hans-Joachim Roedelius) and Harmonia (with Michael Rother and Hans-Joachim Roedelius) and worked with several artists such as Brian Eno, Conny Plank, Mayo Thompson, Hellmut Hattler, Asmus Tietchens, Mani Neumeier, Arno Steffen, Jürgen Engler, Jean Hervé Peron, Zappi Diermaier, and Chris Karrer. In 2012, Dieter Moebius was invited to perform music to Fritz Lang's legendary silent film Metropolis (1927). For this purpose, he produced pre-arranged tracks and samples to be treated with effects and combined during live improvisation according to the dramaturgical setting of the film. His impressive work reveals it's full power and depth in combination with the images from the film. It was his plan to create an album-length version of this music for release. Unfortunately, Dieter Moebius passed away on July 20, 2015 and was not able to complete the project. With the help and support of Dieter Moebius's widow Irene and two longtime musical partners, Tim Story and Jon Leidecker, the Berlin musician Jonas Förster finished the remaining work and completed the production.

Two disc (CD + NTSC/Region 0 DVD) pressing. 2017 compilation from the iconic British band led by Roy Wood (and later featuring future ELO leader Jeff Lynne).

Pinhas, Richard - Reverse CD $17.99
Richard Pinhas, leader of French space-rock pioneers Heldon in the '70s, has been prolific since returning to the form in the '90s. He has collaborate with Merzbow, Yoshida Tatsuya, Oren Ambarchi, Barry Cleveland, and Wolf Eyes. "Changes in my life really influenced this record," Richard Pinhas tells of his new album Reverse. "The wife of a friend of mine offered to read my Tarot cards... I don't believe in it - I am very materialist, not financially but in my philosophy - so it was very strange that in the year that followed I lost my two parents, broke up with my girlfriend, lost my flat, and moved to Nantes. So the album was done in this confusion, in this chaotic state of having lost all these things." Reverse's dark experimental noise and long repetitive tracks have an intimidating first impression. But listening to the whole 50 minutes leaves one feeling purified. Pinhas even says this album "fixed" and "resurrected" him: "It was a healing process for me to make this album. To get rid of all the negativity that occupied my brain." The main process of the album production was one of construction, with Pinhas and Oren Ambarchi (guitars, "dronz") forming the skeleton. After the initial sessions in Paris, they threw out everything except their own parts and then started searching for "the right parts. Not a drummer, but the drummer, not a bass guitarist, but the bass guitarist." He enlisted the talents of Arthur Narcy (drums), Florian Tatar (bass) along with Masami Akita (analog synths), his son Duncan Nilson-Pinhas (digital synths), and William Winant (percussion). Reverse reflects Pinhas's keen interest in Kabbalah. "Ketter" is an unknowable realm and the music reflects this. We catch traces of elements traversing the spectrum while the whole retains it's own mystery. Pinhas's immediately recognizable tone is tempered by Narcy's unique drumming style. "End" reflects the "reverse" of the album title, as sounds double back in on themselves whilst Narcy, frantic on the cymbals, pounds the drums themselves with military precision. "Nefesh" is the first level of the soul, the track's percolating sounds depicting such a pneumatic birth. "V2" brings to mind both Thomas Pynchon's Gravity's Rainbow (1973) and David Bowie. It sounds like the aftermath of an enormous futuristic electrical malfunction still lingering over a vast cityscape. Cover art by Yann LeGendre.

Riley, Terry - Rainbow In Cologne - 2PC CD $27.99

Roach, Steve - Spiral Revelation CD $16.99
The sound of life, interconnected and unfurling. The spiral - a visual symbol of eternity - is a reoccurring metaphoric theme in Steve Roach's pioneering electronic work. Interpreted into musical form, these six spiraling sonic experiences offer a living activation that connects with a sense of the infinite. Roach's long history and love of analog sequencer-based styles reveal a continuing, evolving awakening within Spiral Revelation's 63 minutes. Using only analog and hardware instruments to focus the mind's ear upon a filigree of intricate patterns woven with a direct hands-on approach, the artist sculpts and caresses sound into being in real time. An emotional through-line brings life to these pieces as the unfurling of time's windings connects to the vivid present and illuminates with anticipation a life-affirming future. A masterful expression of an artist who has infused his soul into the art form of electronic music.
RPWL - Plays Pink Floyd's The Man & The Journey - With DVD, 2PC CD $20.99
Deluxe CD/DVD live release from the German prog rock band. For more than eighteen years RPWL have been an important element of the global artrock scene now and they have long become an inevitable presence on the stages of the world. For their 2015/2016 History tour, RPWL have come up with something very special: Pink Floyd's legendary first concept show of 1969 was entitled The Man And The Journey. It is a true classic that, however, never managed to make it's way onto a sound carrier. RPWL have now revived that show - in the inimitable way that made RPWL famous themselves. But that's only the first part of the story: RPWL bring along a brand new live release that contains the very The Man And The Journey show, filmed and recorded during a performance at de Cacaofabriek in Helmond, Netherlands. The recording showcases a band in top form that brings the unorthodox set to life with playful lightness. RPWL take the audience on a trip through a human's life. From getting up in the morning, going to work, all the way to nightmares and a lot more: in the first part of the show the band lays out the regular course of a person's day. The second part, though, consists of the dreamlike spiritual contemplation of all the things that happened in the first part. In the process the musical implementation proves extremely imaginative: during "Work" all kinds of utensils create sounds - even a toolbox is made to come to life musically. On songs like "Nightmare" - the song that later became famous as "Cymbaline" - the band amazes with fascinating ensemble playing. The improvised solos do not only show the individual virtuosity of the respective band member in breathtaking manner but they also demonstrate the degree of ease with which the band manages to master the atmospheric, dynamic and sound-related hurdles hidden in this extraordinary example of psychedelic music. The magnificent and perfectly embedded visuals further enhance the artistic experience: they beautifully accompany the band as well as the audience on this journey through the early works of Pink Floyd.

White, Snowy - Released CD $16.99
2017 release from the veteran rock guitarist. Since the late 1960s, Snowy and his characteristic guitar-playing have made their mark on tasteful blues rock. Whether as a member of Thin Lizzy (on the albums Chinatown and Renegade), working with Peter Green (Fleetwood Mac), as an indispensable tour musician for Pink Floyd and later Roger Waters, or as a highly-respected solo artist, Snowy has always remained true to his love for excellent, handmade music. Over a period of two years, Snowy worked on Released at home in his studio. Mostly on his own... for the first time in his long and distinguished career. The result - 13 tracks that move between blues and rock, and show off his elegant guitar style which has enthralled fans the world over. If you're talking beautiful guitar tones, nuances and mature articulation, then that is Snowy's guitar-playing down to a T. The opening track, the instrumental 'Opening Peace', gives a nod to one of Snowy's great idols: "Every guitarist is influenced by someone, and in my case it was Peter Green. The association works perfectly, and the track is airy and atmospheric". The album however is not just "happy go lucky". White has seen and experienced a lot over the course of his eventful life, and this is reflected in the thoughtful 'Wrong Side Of The Tracks' and 'It's Always Love-That Breaks Your Heart' or the almost nine minutes of 'Out Of Control', in which Snowy gives himself the time and space to express his emotions. For 'Blues On A Borrowed Guitar', Snowy rang his old pals Kuma Harada (bass), Max Middleton (keys) and Jeff Allen (drums) and recorded the song in a spontaneous session - on a borrowed guitar, naturally. His White Flames colleagues - Juan van Emmerloot (drums) and Walter Latupeirissa (bass) - joined him on a second session in Holland, resulting in the two tracks 'Life Full Of Lonely' and 'Everything-It's Alright'. And everything is alright for Snowy White. An unassuming gentleman who is happy with his life and his career - even if he never quite received the adulation other guitarists with his skills enjoyed. Released is a mature, beautifully balanced and multi-facetted album by a true master of his art.
