Derringer - Complete Blue Sky Albums 1976-1978 - UK - Import, 5PC CD $25.99
Limited five CD box. This release collects together music made across three short but prolific years, when the band Derringer released three studio albums plus two live albums. Rick Derringer first found fame aged just 17 in 1965, when his band The McCoys had a #1 hit in America with 'Hang On Sloopy', famously knocking The Beatles' 'Yesterday' off the top spot. Subsequently making significant appearances with Edgar Winter and Johnny Winter, as well as Steely Dan and Alice Cooper, and even squeezing in a solo hit with 1973's 'Rock 'N' Roll, Hoochie Koo', before deciding to put together his own band in 1976. Naming the band Derringer, the singer and guitarist was joined by bassist Kenny Aaronson, future Black Sabbath and Dio drummer, Vinny Appice, with the quartet completed by guitarist Danny Johnson. Going for a rockier, harder, less poppy sound than Rick's previous musical excursions, Derringer signed to Blue Sky Records, a subsidiary of Columbia Records, in 1976. This set includes the albums Derringer, Live In Cleveland, Sweet Evil, Derringer Live and If I Weren't So Romantic I'd Shoot You.

Hawkwind - GWR Years: 1988-1991 - UK - Import, 3PC CD $28.99
Three CD collection. The GWR Years 1988 - 1991 is comprised of all three of Hawkwind's albums originally released by the GWR label between 1988 and 1991 - The Xenon Codex, Space Bandits and Palace Springs. These recordings saw Hawkwind move into the 1990s with a trio of excellent albums recorded by slightly fluctuating line-ups. Alongside Hawkwind Captain Dave Brock and long-time member Harvey Bainbridge, The Xenon Codex would be the last album of the 1980s to feature Huw Lloyd Langton on guitar, whilst bass guitarist Alan Davey would come more to the fore within the band.
Jansch, Bert - Living In The Shadows - 4PC CD $46.99
Four CD set. Signifying a return to form that heralded one of the most prolific periods of his life, this special collection features some of Jansch's finest work. Living In The Shadows includes an extra disc of demos, alternate versions and never-before heard tracks, transferred from Jansch's personal tapes, alongside the three studio albums of the 1990s: The Ornament Tree, When The Circus Comes To Town and Toy Balloon. 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.

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.

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. Then what happened next would turn an otherwise brilliant night into legendary - Ian Paice, Tony Ashton Jon Lord (Paice, Ashton and Lord) took the stage for the first (and only time) since 1977. This release is a must for all Tony Ashton fans (obviously), as well as any fans of the original Whitesnake and Paice Ashton Lord.

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.

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.

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.
Jefferson Airplane - Nothing In Particular CD $15.99
The lost 1968 Dutch broadcast.
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.

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.

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.

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.

Weather Report - Sweetnighter - UK - Import CD $17.99
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.

DVD (NTSC/Region 0), Blu-ray/All Region pressing. The phenomenon now known as arena rock was born at the California Jam - and Deep Purple were at it's epicenter.

The Jam took place at the Ontario Motor Speedway in Ontario, California on a hot and sunny spring day on April 6, '74. The event attracted an enormous crowd of a quarter-million people and represented a baptism of fire - in more ways than one - for Purple's 'new boys', frontman David Coverdale and bassist/vocalist Glenn Hughes, who in '73 had replaced Ian Gillan and Roger Glover, respectively, to usher in the band's so-called Mk III line-up.

Coltrane, John - Trane 90 - 4PC CD $22.99
Like Parker, Ellington, Davis and Armstrong, Coltrane is a name that requires no forename prefix to identify it's owner as one of the greatest of all jazz icons. It's also a names that instantly conjures a sound: spearing, questing, earnest, deep and intense, that of a man who, in a recorded career of around a dozen years transformed not only his own music but much of the jazz landscape around him. His death, aged 41 in 1967, left an aching chasm at the heart of an art form and nearly fifty years after his passing his legacy continues to inform much of what is thought of as innovative within contemporary jazz. Even more unbelievably, a staggering nine decades have passed since the birth of this still controversial figure, a man whose music continues to generate passionate debate both for and against. Was Coltrane really the last true jazz innovator? Or did he, as some maintain, unhinge a Pandora's Box that has since proved impossible to close, resulting in a fragmentary collapse of the idiom?

Various Artists - Circus Days: Pop Psych Obscurities 1966-1972 / Var - Boxed Set, 6PC CD $33.99
Various Artists - Krautrock & Progressive Box Set / Various - 6PC CD $19.99
Six CD set. The year 1965 suffered an unexpected detour in pop culture: starting the explosion of psychedelia and the influence of Bob Dylan's poetry, rock, as an aesthetic movement, wanted to earn the recognition that genres such as jazz or classical music had. Due to this, many virtuoso performers and complex arrangements and improvisation were incorporated to rock's catalog. That's how psychedelic rock and then progressive rock came to be. Meanwhile in Germany, and influenced by both the English rock and by German avant-garde artists such as Karlheinz Stockhausen, a new way of understand rock music was born, with poetry inspired by outer space and a remarkable use of electronics and experimentation. This musical movement was dubbed by British press as krautrock. The Krautrock And Progressive Rock Box is the definitive album that illustrates both these cultural moments, with a range of artists that never before were compiled together. The Krautrock and Progressive Box is a work of unusual magnitude that will delight not only those experts in the genres, but any fan of rock music.

Band. - The Last Waltz (40th Anniversary Edition) - 2PC CD $19.99
Band. - Last Waltz (40th Anniversary Edition) - With Blu-Ray, Deluxe Edition, 5PC CD $59.99
Digitally remastered two CD edition and deluxe four CD + Blu-ray edition. This 40th Anniversary Deluxe Edition of the original soundtrack has 54 tracks, including the entire concert, as well as rehearsals and outtakes. Original soundtrack to the critically acclaimed concert film. The Last Waltz was a concert by The Band, held on Thanksgiving Day, November 25, 1976, at Winterland Ballroom in San Francisco. The Last Waltz was advertised as the Band.'s farewell concert appearance, and the concert saw the Band joined by more than a dozen special guests, including Bob Dylan, Paul Butterfield, Neil Young, Emmylou Harris, Ringo Starr, Ronnie Hawkins, Dr. John, Joni Mitchell, Van Morrison, Muddy Waters, Ronnie Wood, Neil Diamond, Bobby Charles, The Staple Singers, and Eric Clapton. The Band, more than any other group, put rock and roll back in touch with it's roots. With their ageless songs and solid grasp of musical idioms, the Band reached across the decades, making connections for a generation that was, as an era of violent cultural schisms wound down, in desperate search of them. They projected a sense of community in the turbulent late '60s and early '70s - a time when the fabric of community in the United States was fraying. Guitarist Robbie Robertson drew from history in his evocative, cinematic story-songs, and the vocal triumvirate of bassist Rick Danko, drummer Levon Helm and keyboardist Richard Manuel joined in rustic harmony and traded lines in rich, conversational exchanges. Multi-instrumentalist Garth Hudson provided musical coloration in period styles that evoked everything from rural carnivals of the early 20th century to rock and roll revues of the '50s.

Cale, John - Fear - Holland - Import CD $15.99
Cale, John - Fragments Of A Rainy Season - 2PC CD $15.99
Fragments Of A Rainy Season is the the first live John Cale album to feature him performing solo and "unplugged" - before that term became a mid-'90s buzzword. In contrast to the jaundiced punk truculence of Sabotage/Live (1979) or Even Cowgirls Get the Blues (1986), Fragments gives us Cale at his most melodic and moving, a mellowed and certainly a soberer man in a Yamamoto jacket and a lopsided haircut running through a selection of his prettiest songs. The album features incredible versions of "Paris 1919," "Dying On The Vine," "Chinese Envoy," cover versions of the Elvis classic "Heartbreak Hotel," his devastating treatment of Leonard Cohen's "Hallelujah" and a suite of Dylan Thomas' works "On A Wedding Anniversary," "Lie Still, Sleep Becalmed" and "Do Not Go Gentle Into That Good Night."
Canned Heat - Future Blues - Bonus Tracks, Expanded Version CD $15.99
Digitally remastered edition of this 1970 album from the blues rockers. Canned Heat approached their fifth studio album with great care following the disappointing sales of the album Hallelujah. Despite some great material the band had failed to come up with a hit to follow up the chart success of 'On The Road Again' and 'Going Up the Country'. They approached the songs on this album with great care and when they covered Wilbert Harrison's 'Let's Work Together' they were sure that they had another hit on their hands. The boogie and jams remained but they were now more concise. Henry Vestine had left the band and Harvey Mandel had joined as lead guitarist. The band with Mandel had caused a stir when they played the Woodstock festival among others in the summer of 1969. Sadly, Alan Wilson would pass away shortly after the completion of Future Blues. This edition of this great album features a true stereo version of the hit single 'Let's Work Together', as well as the long version that remained unreleased for years. First time U.S. release with all new mastering and liner notes.

Crippled Black Phoenix - Bronze CD $14.99
International dark rock collective Crippled Black Phoenix return with the towering new full-length 'Bronze'. On 'Bronze', Crippled Black Phoenix meld dark psychedelia, haunting post-rock, Victorian and Gothic influences, progressive tendencies and classic heavy rock into one of the most unique sounds in the world. 'Bronze' is more than just music; it teems with a dark sensuality and the simmering rage of people longing to feel; tearing themselves away from the modern dystopian nightmare at any cost. Epic tracks such as "Deviant Burials", "No Fun", "Rotten Memories", "Turn to Stone" and the haunting "Goodbye Then" are just part of the amazing onslaught 'Bronze' contains. Crippled Black Phoenix are the antidote to the tepid dross that modern music has become, and 'Bronze' arguably the most vital in their canon of true protest music against a world gone mad.

Additionally, legendary guitarist Alex Lifeson of Rush performs on two stellar tracks, with James LaBrie of Dream Theater contributing extraordinary guest vocals on two cuts. Emmett says, "Some might see this as a comeback record, but I'm really proud of the vitality the band generated. For me, it's always about the songwriting - how the melodies and sonic landscapes capture the storytelling."

Morse, Neal - The Similitude Of A Dream - Deluxe Edition, 3PC CD $27.99
The journey of Neal Morse has seen three decades of musical accomplishments, the latest being the inception of THE NEAL MORSE BAND. The Los Angeles born Prog-Rocker Neal Morse (Spock's Beard, Flying Colors, and Transatlantic) has forged many relationships over the years. The most compelling and fruitful efforts have been those with Mike Portnoy (ex-Dream Theater, The Winery Dogs, Twisted Sister, Transatlantic, Flying Colors, and more). As Neal Morse explains, "THE SIMILITUDE OF A DREAM is loosely and sometimes directly based on the book, Pilgrim's Progress by John Bunyan. The original title was The Pilgrim's Progress From This World To The That Which Is To Come; Delivered Under The Similitude Of A Dream, and it was originally published in 1678.

Queen - Queen On Air - CD $22.99
Queen - Queen On Air - (6 PC) CD $54.99
Two CD and deluxe six CD edition. Queen's meteoric ascendancy during the 1970s has been well documented. From their gloriously ambitious self-titled debut album of 1973 through to the album that put them in the superstar bracket, 1975's A Night At The Opera, and beyond, this unique group carved out a singular path as the most visionary, inventive and charismatic band of that epic decade. But there is another side to Queen's rise that has been largely overlooked. Between February 1973 and October 1977, the band recorded six radio sessions exclusively for the BBC. The twenty four recordings these landmark sessions produced include alternate versions of the debut single, unique takes of classic album tracks and even a radically reworked reimagining of one of their best known anthems that has never previously appeared on any Queen studio release. Now, for the very first time, all six Queen BBC sessions - meticulously restored by Queen engineer Kris Fredriksson and mastered by Grammy Award winner Adam Ayan - have been brought together on Queen On Air. Queen On Air is more than just a collection of rare recordings, it is a glorious snapshot of the growth of a legend.

Sun Ra - SUN RA Singles the Definitive 45's Collection 1952 - 1991 - With Booklet, 3PC CD $17.99
SUN RA Singles the Definitive 45's Collection 1952 - 1991 - Strut presents a new definitive collection of Singles released by jazz maverick Sun Ra during his Earth years, spanning 1952 to 1991. Released prolifically during the 1950s and more sporadically thereafter, primarily on the Saturn label, the 45s offer one-off meteorites from Ra's prolific cosmic journey, tracing the development of his forward-thinking "Space-Bop" and his unique take on jazz and blues traditions which sounded unlike anything else from the period. As with his LPs, most 45s were only pressed in small runs and were sold at gigs and have since become extremely rare and sought after. Only a small handful of copies of "Love In Outer Space" b/w "Mayan Temple" and "The Blue One" b/w "Orbitration In Blue" have ever been seen; some have only been discovered in physical form in recent years; some were planned and penciled in but allegedly never made it to vinyl (including "Saturn" and "Velvet" from the Jazz In Silhouette LP) and some appeared as limited one-off magazine singles and posthumous releases, including "Hell #1" aka "Out There A Minute." The set is the most comprehensive collection of Ra's singles to date. Sleeve note writers Francis Gooding and Paul Griffiths brilliantly illustrate the role of the single within Ra's career and break down each release with detailed track by track notes. Working with Sun Ra LLC and Sun Raarchivist Michael D. Anderson, Strut has also assembled the best possible master sources for each track.

Three CD set. For many, The Who has been the best British rock band that appeared in the '60s. With it's high-impact stage presence, Pete Townshend's intellect and above all, an exquisite repertoire, The Who can appear side to side with of the greatest: The Beatles, The Rolling Stones, Led Zeppelin and Pink Floyd. In The Many Faces Of The Who we explore the fascinating parallel world of the group: John Entwistle's solo projects, Roger Daltrey's collaborations, their influences, the originals songs that the band made covers of (such as the remarkable 'Young Man Blues' from Mose Allison) and also we celebrate their fantastic repertoire reworked by stars such as Ocean Colour Scene, Cast or the multi-talented Petra Haden, who performs only with his voice the full The Who Sell Out album.

2016 archive release. This is the one that has the Zappa online forums really buzzing!

Beach Boys - The Beach Boys: Pet Sounds Classic Album Blu-Ray $22.99
The latest addition to the acclaimed & award winning Classic Albums series tells the story behind the making of The Beach Boys ground breaking album Pet Sounds, which celebrates it's 50th anniversary this year. Pet Sounds was recorded in late 1965 and early 1966, about a year after Brian Wilson had withdrawn from playing live with The Beach Boys in order to concentrate on composing and studio work. While the rest of the band were out on tour, Brian Wilson worked in the studio creating multi-layered compositions with painstaking attention to detail utilizing orchestration, sound effects and unusual instruments. When the band returned from tour they went into the studio to add their trademark complex vocal harmonies. - The new direction of the music caused some consternation within the group and the program explores the band's relationship at this time as well as the creation of the music through interviews with all the surviving Beach Boys and others involved in the creation of the album. The US press didn't know what to make of the album at first, although it later became acknowledged as both important and influential. In the UK the album was immediately acclaimed and commercially successful, peaking at No. 2 in the albums chart and remaining in the Top 10 for 6 months. Pet Sounds is now universally regarded as one of the finest albums of the sixties and thoroughly merits it's place in the Classic Albums series.

NTSC & PAL/Region 0. Finally we are proud to announce the eagerly-awaited DVD production of Starmus - Sonic Universe, a release of the sensational musical collaboration between two legendary names: Brian May and Tangerine Dream. Brian May had been for decades the great guitar player, arranger and co-singer with one of the greatest rock bands of all time: Queen. Tangerine Dream came from a complete different angel of the musical world. Being the first band ever using Moog sequencer rhythm live on stage, being called the early masterminds of ambient sound and highly acclaimed Hollywood film composers for many years, Tangerine Dream have set more than one landmark in musical history. Now here is the result of a very unusual concert of the two legends at the Starmus Festival on the Island of Tenerife. In June 2011 this festival was held in the honor of the 50th Anniversary of Juri Gagarin's first spaceflight. Among the guests you could witness Neil Armstrong (first man on the moon) in one of his last public appearances and Buzz Aldrin (second man on the moon), Alexei Leonow - first man stepping out of his capsule into space, Jim Lovell and many more. The first track of the DVD - "Supernova" - integrates original, real star sounds - something very special. Prof. Garik Israelian, astrophysicist and founder of the Starmus Festival captured these unique sounds. Can you imagine how the sun sounds in space? Get an idea of this sound when listening to "Supernova." Enjoy with this release the highlights of TD's musical career in combination with Brian May's unique guitar. Dedicated to Edgar.

10cc - I'm Not In Love: Essential 10Cc UK - Import, 3PC CD $13.99
Alcest - Kodama CD $13.99
Alcest - Kodama - 2PC CD $38.99
"Kodama" the fifth album from Blackgaze pioneers, Alcest, marks the French duo's ferocious return to the stylistic maximalism of it's early albums while continuing the band's relentless pursuit for new sounds and fresh ideas. "Kodama" is the Japanese word for 'tree spirit' and 'echo' and from the album's structure and dynamics to it's cinematic sound, "Kodama" indeed 'echoes' Alcest's 2010 classic, "Écailles de Lune". But this is no simple back-to-the-roots album: the band has more punch, rhythm and organic feel than ever before. While clearly influenced by bands like The Smashing Pumpkins, Tool, Dinosaur Jr, Grimes and The Cure, "Kodama" ultimately reveals itself as Alcest's 'Japanese album', drawing substantial inspiration from Japanese art and culture. Originally triggered by Hayao Miyazaki's anime film "Princess Mononoke", "Kodama" picks up on the fate of it's protagonist and, at it's core, deals with the sensation of not belonging; of living in between worlds, be it city and nature or the physical and spiritual one. Duality is also crucial for the visual approach of the album, realized by French graphic designer duo Fřrtifem. Paying tribute to Japanese illustrators like Takato Yamamoto, the visuals portray contrasting elements like nature/urbanity, youth/death, femininity/animality and combine poetic elements with darker ones that were not present in Alcest's earlier works.

Bevis Frond - It Just Is CD $21.99
Digisleeve including booklet. Digitally remastered edition. Released in 1993 It Just Is was dedicated to one of Nick Saloman's favorite guitarists Ollie Halsall. This beautifully poignant album is stripped back similarly to the earlier Bevis Frond releases with Nick going solo. Playing everything on the record, the hard hitting 'Desperate', 'What's It All About' and 'Can't Stop Lying' are notably more downbeat whilst the psych pop of 'Dreamboat Sinking' and 'Day One's lyrics make "this album for the dedicated Frond obsessive more than anyone else" (Allmusic). The Bevis Frond is a British group whose range covers hard edge to melancholy vintage indie rock to poetic, classic-rock songcraft. Nick Saloman is the band's frontman and songwriter. They have recorded many singles and albums on various independent labels.
Bevis Frond - Sprawl - Bonus Tracks, 2PC CD $21.99

Vocals here were provided by Ade Shaw, Dean Carter and Mick Donovan along with Current 93's David Tibet guesting with spoken word on the spiritual 'Right On (hippy dream)'. Hypnotic 12 minute psych piece 'Awake' is interspersed with instrumentals and the grungy guitars of 'The Puller' are offset by Aldridge's strings. The tenth studio album release in less than a decade since and Sprawl - once again - demonstrates Nick's immeasurable songwriting power. The Bevis Frond is a British group whose range covers hard edge to melancholy vintage indie rock to poetic, classic-rock songcraft. Nick Saloman is the band's frontman and songwriter. They have recorded many singles and albums on various independent labels.
Bevis Frond - Superseeder CD $21.99
Digitally remastered edition. Released on Nick Saloman's label Woronzow in 1995, The Bevis Frond's Superseeder arrived after Sprawl. At this point, Nick began releasing albums annually compared with his earlier recordings that would see multiple releases per year. Soaring and melodic rock workouts prevail with a notably strong rhythm section making this record another favorite. Eastern tinged opener 'Superseded', 'I Can't Cry' and 17-minute 'House Of Mountains' are exemplary workouts whilst the garage-punk of 'Dolly Bug' takes a different tone as do 'Golden Walks Of London' and 'Queen Of May' which have more traditional British influences. Playing many instruments on the record, Nick continues here to work with his live band with Andy Ward on the drums, Adrian Shaw on bass and guest second guitarist Bari Watts returns (tracks 6 & 12). The Bevis Frond is a British group whose range covers hard edge to melancholy vintage indie rock to poetic, classic-rock songcraft. Nick Saloman is the band's frontman and songwriter. They have recorded many singles and albums on various independent labels.
Biosphere - Departed Glories CD $14.99
Brand X - Live In Rochester 1977 CD $18.99
Brand X - LIVE IN ROCHESTER 1977 - Brand X are unfairly best known as Phil Collins's side project when he wasn't singing and playing drums for Genesis. This is of course true but they were so much more than that. The interplay between bassist Percy Jones and guitar player John Goodsall has seldom been surpassed, which is why the band have become synonymous with the concept of jazz fusion. This record catches them one evening in Kent. While the rest of the music industry was paying lip service to punk rock, Brand X were doing what they did best; playing a blistering set in front of a rabidly enthusiastic audience.

Cactus - Black Dawn CD $15.99
They were called "The American Led Zeppelin" back in 1970. Tall words, indeed, but Cactus - Carmine Appice, Tim Bogert, Jim McCarty and the late Rusty Day (who died in 1982) - came out only months after their Brit counterparts, only to flame out brightly after four albums (Cactus, One Way Or Another, 'Ot 'n' Sweaty, and Restrictions) before 1973 even started. Now, four decades later, the band that made such an impression with their loud blues-edged hard rock madness?the band that influenced the likes of Van Halen, Joe Bonamassa, David Coverdale, and Kid Rock... The band that foreshadowed heavy music itself?are back. This time, Carmine and Jim (along with ex-Savoy Brown lead singer Jimmy Kunes, harmonica player Randy Pratt; and bassist Pete Bremy) are providing the lusty macho soul. Kunes' leather-lunged pipes atop this hot 'n' nasty blues-metal machine made some quality head-first rock 'n' roll. BLACK DAWN is the band' newest studio album; a compelling step into the future upon a bridge firmly built in the past.

How We Live - Dry Land Remastered, UK - Import CD $20.99
Digitally remastered and expanded edition of the 1987 album Dry Land by How We Live. How We Live was formed in 1985 by vocalist and keyboard player Steve Hogarth and guitarist Colin Woore in 1985. Both musicians had previously been in the new wave band The Europeans. Signing to the CBS imprint Portrait Records, Dry Land was the band's sole album. Issued in 1987, the album was a fine collection of melodic and imaginative rock music that, despite featuring some excellent songs, somehow failed to make any commercial headway. By 1988 a disillusioned Steve Hogarth was considering abandoning music when he was invited to replace Fish as vocalist in the Progressive Rock band Marillion, where he reached a wider audience. The song "Dry Land" would later be recorded by Marillion on their album Holidays in Eden and was also a Top 40 hit when released as a single. Dry Land was reissued briefly on CD and is now sought after by Marillion collectors. This new expanded edition of Dry Land has been newly remastered from the original Portrait masters and includes the bonus tracks 'English Summer' and the 12-inch remix of 'All the Time in the World', both originally issued as 12-inch singles in 1987.

Karn, Mick - Three Part Species CD $13.99
Kitajima, Osamu - Benzaiten CD $15.99
Psychedelic Sounds International present a reissue of Osamu Kitajima's Benzaiten, originally released in 1976. Benzaiten is world music and ethno sounds with an obvious Japanese origin, meeting progressive rock and psych rock. The result is a captivating piece of melodic and deeply atmospheric music that paints pictures of life in ancient Japan. If Pink Floyd were Japanese, their music might have sounded like this album. The frequency of the arrangements on Benzaiten is reminiscent of what English prog bands created in the early to mid '70s, just with a different ethnical approach. Benzaiten is even a more progressive effort than anything most British bands have ever managed to fabricate and is still utterly natural and vivid concerning the flow of the music. All participating musicians here are professionals and their performances are tight and still passionate. The sound is warm and vivid and the song structures are wide open and welcoming. Electronic elements in the percussion section add some oddity to the whole musical picture. The cool aspect of Benzaiten is the rocking guitar which keeps the whole album together. Must be the Japanese equivalent to German acts like Amon Düül II, Embryo and Guru Guru.
Led Zeppelin - Complete BBC Sessions - 3PC CD $22.99
Three CD set. Nearly 20 years ago, Led Zeppelin introduced BBC Sessions, an acclaimed two-disc set of live recordings selected from the band's appearances on BBC radio between 1969 and 1971. The Complete BBC Sessions is an updated version of the collection that's been newly remastered with supervision by Jimmy Page and expanded with eight unreleased BBC recordings, including three rescued from a previously "lost" session from 1969. In addition, the set includes extensive session-by-session liner notes written by Dave Lewis. For the first time ever, it provides accurate details and notes about all of the band's BBC sessions. Musical highlights on this new collection include the debut of a long-lost radio session that has achieved near-mythic status among fans. Originally broadcast in April 1969, the session included three songs: "I Can't Quit You Baby," "You Shook Me," and the only recorded performance of "Sunshine Woman." Also included are two unreleased versions of both "Communication Breakdown" and "What Is And What Should Never Be." Separated by two years, the performances vividly demonstrate the young band's rapid evolution over a short period of time.
Leimer, K. - Re-enact CD $15.99
2016 release from the founder of Palace Of Lights. Following a few years of back-catalog recovery, K. Leimer has completed work on his first solo album since The Grey Catalog. These ten new tracks follow an emergent arc, a refinement of the techniques he has used since Permissions. Highly tactile, with an emphasis on subharmonics, Re-enact sketches an antediluvian soundstage of deteriorating fragments scattered among still-recognizable artifacts. This multitude of points-of-collapse in textural, timbral, harmonic and rhythmic relationships, continually folds in on itself to reveal moments of inner coherence and cognition. Embedded throughout with a wealth of digital and analog detail, Re-enact sets a new post-ambient direction for Leimer's work.

Marillion - F.E.A.R CD $15.99
British rock band Marillion, founded in 1979, have, over the course of 17 albums, become one of the most commercially successful neo-progressive rock band of the 1980s and are still one of the most outstanding representatives of their genre. As the first of their peers, Marillion have started to embrace the potential of the Internet for both their commercial approach and to interact with their audience. They have sold more than 15 million albums. This, the band's eighteenth studio album, features 5 brand new tracks - consisting of 17 parts - and the feeling within the band themselves is that they may well have produced their best ever work. Marillion has certainly not mellowed with age: Whilst the album title itself is certainly provocative, it's not meant to be offensive. The title itself features as a line in the track "The New Kings" and is delivered as a plaintive falsetto. Steve Hogarth said, "We've used 'F E A R' as a title with some relish, but only as it shows that we haven't shied away, but it's said with sadness. There are two basic impulses behind human behavior: Love and Fear, and all the good stuff comes from love".

Mercury, Freddie - Messenger Of The Gods - 2PC CD $17.99
2016 two CD set. Freddie Mercury was a man of many talents and many different sides. The songs he wrote for and with Queen filled stadiums around the globe and have rightly gone down in history, but he also embarked on a solo career that took him from the clubs of Munich and New York to the great opera houses of the world. All the different sides of this iconic musician can be found on Freddie Mercury: Messenger Of The Gods: The Singles. From his debut solo single 'I Can Hear Music', released under the name Larry Lurex, through the dance floor-influenced solo anthems of the '80s and up to his collaborations with legendary opera singer Montserrat Caballé including the timeless 'Barcelona', this is a journey through the career of a unique talent. Messenger Of The Gods is completed by two posthumous singles, 'In My Defence' and 'Living On My Own' (No More Brothers Radio Mix), the latter of which became Freddie s first solo #1 and was the biggest selling European single of the year in 1993.
O.S.T. - Man Who Fell To Earth / O.S.T. - CD $21.99
Two CD release. Original soundtrack to the 1976 motion picture released to coincide with the 40th anniversary of the film's release. While David Bowie didn't contribute any music to the film, the soundtrack features the work of John Phillips of The Mamas and The Papas fame (who composed specifically for the film), and Stomu Yamash'ta. This is the first audio release of the music. Though an album was promised on Bowie's then-label RCA in 1976, it never materialized for a variety of reasons. That story is explored in the 48-page hardcover book that accompanies the deluxe two CD release. Paolo Hewitt and film editor Graeme Clifford provide the liner notes.

Pavlov's Dog - House Broken - Live 2015 - 3PC CD $38.99
Pentangle - Finale CD $17.99
'Finale' was recorded live during the innovative folk band's 2008 tour - their first in 35 years and sees the original line up (Bert Jansch, John Renbourn, Jacqui McShee, Danny Thompson and Terry Cox) revisiting classic repertoire. In February 2007 the original members of Pentangle - Bert Jansch, John Renbourn, Jacqui McShee, Danny Thompson and Terry Cox received a BBC Radio 2 Lifetime Achievement Award from Sir David Attenborough. On 29th June 2008, marking the 40th anniversary of the recording their monumental live album 'Sweet Child' at the Royal Festival Hall, they returned to the very same venue to begin their first British tour since 1973. As Robin Denslow wrote in his review of the show for the Guardian, it was "an emotional, at times nervous, evening that was far more than an exercise in nostalgia, both because they are now even finer musicians than before, and because their sophisticated, quirky fusions sound as in tune with the current acoustic scene as with the more chaotic hippy era". Formed in swinging '60s London, Pentangle were one of the most exciting and innovative groups in the world, genuinely pushing boundaries and exploring new musical avenues. Simultaneously stars of the underground and darlings of the mainstream, they enjoyed an unprecedented degree of worldwide success for an acoustic band and their influence and musical impact is still revered and relevant today. The beautifully recorded and packaged 2CD set captures the band in a series of scintillating performances.

Suzanne Vega - Lover, Beloved: Songs From An Evening With Carson Mccullers CD $14.99
Suzanne Vega celebrates the remarkable life of another distinguished writer, Carson McCullers, with the release of the new studio album inspired by the novelist entitled Lover, Beloved: Songs from an Evening with Carson McCullers. The songs, which she co-wrote with longtime friend and theatrical collaborator Duncan Sheik, richly capture the essence of McCuller's insightful words and forward-thinking philosophies on gender and love. "I feel that McCullers' ideas and thoughts are very modern," Vega says, "and she incarnates them in a way that other authors don't. She tried to live them and paid a price for it." In songs like "New York Is My Destination," "We of Me" and "Lover, Beloved," you can hear the signature cool detachment of Vega's singing and revel in the characteristically incisive observation of her lyrics, many of which deftly draw on McCullers' own writing. But the songs' elastic melody lines, loping rhythms, idiosyncratic instrumentation (including clarinet, harmonium, banjo, ukulele, trombone and accordion), and surprising arrangements (by guitarist extraordinaire Gerry Leonard, who also produced the album) are like nothing we've heard from Vega before.

The concert took place in a stunningly beautiful location within the framework of the SOUNDLab concert series. This special concert was the first official big concert for the three remaining TD members to perform live within the new period of The Quantum Years, the period Edgar Froese, founder and head of Tangerine Dream until his death in January 2015, still had the chance to introduce in Australia in 2014. Thorsten, Ulrich and Hoshiko chose a series of well-known and popular TD tracks, but also came up with many new arrangements and some very new tracks from their Quantum Key EP. Enjoy listening to a great live concert in Poland in a special atmosphere and with a wonderful audience. Dedicated to Edgar.

"The result of this process is a record that I truly think the intention of is special" he says of the album. "I 'found' gas to put into the tank and am glad I did. I think the intention, the theme, and the participation of everyone involved allows this album to act like a fulcrum between the past few years and what I intend to do next with the symphony. I am very proud of it and everyone involved." Devin comments: "Transcendence, like every record I've done prior, is an extension of what's been going on in my world, represented in a new batch of songs. I'm 44 years old now, and this is where I have been over the past two years since Z2."

Traveling Wilburys - Traveling Wilburys, Vol. 1 CD $16.99
Digitally remastered edition. The Traveling Wilburys Vol. 1 is the Grammy Award winning debut from The Traveling Wilburys (George Harrison, Jeff Lynne, Tom Petty, Bob Dylan and Roy Orbison) featuring the worldwide hits "Handle With Care" and "End Of The Line". The Traveling Wilburys (sometimes shortened to the Wilburys) were a British-American supergroup that recorded two albums, the first in 1988 and the second in 1990, though Orbison died before the second was recorded. George Harrison first mentioned the Traveling Wilburys during a radio interview with Bob Coburn on the Rockline radio station in February 1988. When asked what he planned to do as a follow-up for his Cloud Nine album, Harrison replied: "What I'd really like to do next is... to do an album with me and some of my mates... a few tunes, you know. Maybe the Traveling Wilburys... it's this new group I got: it's called the Traveling Wilburys, I'd like to do an album with them and later we can all do our own albums again." "Wilbury" was a slang term first used by Harrison during the recording of Cloud Nine with Jeff Lynne. Referring to recording errors created by some faulty equipment, Harrison jokingly remarked to Lynne, "We'll bury 'em in the mix". Thereafter, they used the term for any small error in performance and the term was used again when the group were together. Harrison suggested "The Trembling Wilburys" as the group's name; instead, Lynne suggested "Traveling", with which the group agreed.
Traveling Wilburys - Traveling Wilburys, Vol. 3 CD $16.99
Digitally remastered edition. With Roy Orbison's unexpected passing shortly after their debut, the Wilburys would continue as a foursome and release their second album, whimsically entitled The Traveling Wilburys, Vol. 3 featuring the singles "Inside Out", "She's My Baby" and "Wilbury Twist". George Harrison first mentioned the Traveling Wilburys during a radio interview with Bob Coburn on the Rockline radio station in February 1988. When asked what he planned to do as a follow-up for his Cloud Nine album, Harrison replied: "What I'd really like to do next is... to do an album with me and some of my mates... a few tunes, you know. Maybe the Traveling Wilburys... it's this new group I got: it's called the Traveling Wilburys, I'd like to do an album with them and later we can all do our own albums again."

Mark, Vince, Tim, and Carmine were in California in July recording an album of Led Zeppelin covers. Mark said, "Basically, we rearranged some songs - we're doing a lot of their stuff Vanilla Fudge style.

Various Artists - Let It Be: Black America Sings Lennon Mccartney & Harrison UK - Import CD $13.99
2016 collection. The highly anticipated second volume of songs by John Lennon, Paul McCartney and George Harrison is no less potent than 2011's Come Together. The compositions of Lennon, McCartney and Harrison were no less appreciated by their black American peers than they were by their fellow pop and rock acts. Here are 22 reinterpretations of Beatles classics that frequently take the songs in new directions, but never lose sight of the original intention of the writers. We welcome back a few artists from Come Together but the majority of acts here have not been featured previously. Four of the songs are reprised from the previous volume and offer a really fascinating comparison as they are heard here in very different arrangements. While many familiar names are on board there are some who you might not expect to hear covering a Beatles song.
Various Artists - Many Faces Of The Beatles / Various 3PC CD $12.99
2016 three CD set. Music Brokers presents a new volume in the series that has revolutionized the music industry: The Many Faces. This time it's The Beatles' turn, the greatest band of all time. CD One is dedicated completely to the years when Pete Best was The Beatles drummer (before Ringo Starr). CD Two is a tribute to their songs, and includes versions by stars such as Ike & Tina Turner, John Denver and Marmalade (who reached at # 1 in the UK with their version of 'Ob-La-Di, Ob -La-Da' and that is included in The Many Faces). CD Three is a fascinating tour through the originals versions of songs that The Beatles covered on their early EPs and albums. Includes songs like 'Anna', 'Twist And Shout' and 'Money (That's What I Want)'. The Many Faces Of The Beatles is a wonderful trip through the world of The Beatles, an album to collect and to treasure.

Digitally remastered edition. On this extraordinary 1989 album, legendary keyboard player teamed up with an Italian singer named Mario Fasciano. Recorded on the Isle of Man, the album contains eight Neapolitan songs and it is the result of a prodigious concurrence of a number of talented artists that somehow reached a propitious zenith of creativity here, on this album. Exotic, Mediterranean, evocative, timeless, classic and classical, and wonderful are a few of the adjectives used to describe this exciting release. Rick's signature piano playing and Mario's warm Jon Anderson-like voice weave a web of medieval fantasy. This is an unjustly overlooked record which fans of Rick Wakeman are certainly sure to enjoy.

Blue Oyster Cult - Secret Treaties SACD $27.99
Secret Treaties is the third studio album and final part of the powerful early '70s trio of albums by Blue Öyster Cult.

Marillion - F.e.a.r SACD $21.99
British rock band Marillion, founded in 1979, have, over the course of 17 albums, become one of the most commercially successful neo-progressive rock band of the 1980s and are still one of the most outstanding representatives of their genre. As the first of their peers, Marillion have started to embrace the potential of the Internet for both their commercial approach and to interact with their audience. They have sold more than 15 million albums. This, the band's eighteenth studio album, features 5 brand new tracks - consisting of 17 parts - and the feeling within the band themselves is that they may well have produced their best ever work. Marillion has certainly not mellowed with age: Whilst the album title itself is certainly provocative, it's not meant to be offensive. The title itself features as a line in the track "The New Kings" and is delivered as a plaintive falsetto. Steve Hogarth said, "We've used 'F E A R' as a title with some relish, but only as it shows that we haven't shied away, but it's said with sadness. There are two basic impulses behind human behavior: Love and Fear, and all the good stuff comes from love". SACD

Russell, leon - Leon Russell And The Shelter People SACD $27.99
Leon Russell's accolades are monumental in a number of categories, from songwriting to session playing, to his solo work. Leon Russell and the Shelter People is the second solo album by the singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist. This 1971 gem shot to #17 on the Billboard album charts. This recording is a prime example of Russell's instrumental dexterity and ability to produce some energetic rock & roll. Poignant and expressive tracks such as "Of Thee I Sing," "Home Sweet Oklahoma," and "She Smiles Like a River" all lay claim to Russell's soulful style and are clear-cut examples of the power that he musters through his spirited piano playing and his voice. His Dylan covers, "It Takes a Lot to Laugh, It Takes A Train To Cry" and "A Hard Rain's A Gonna Fall" are especially strong and have him sounding so forceful, they could have been his own compositions.

King Crimson - Great Deceiver: Live 1973-1974 Boxed Set, 4PC $54.98
KING CRIMSON / GREAT DECEIVER: LIVE 1973-1974 - The Great Deceiver is a live 4CD box set by the band King Crimson, released on Virgin Records in 1992. In 2007, it was reissued as two volumes of 2 CDs each. The track listing on the volume 1 CD 1 lists 11 tracks, incorrectly listing The Talking Drum and the abbreviated "Larks' Tongues in Aspic, Part Two" from the Pittsburgh show from CD 1 of the volume 2 set. - The box set features live recordings of the band from 1973 and 1974. All recordings feature the lineup of Robert Fripp, John Wetton, David Cross and Bill Bruford. Jamie Muir, who left the band in early 1973, is not featured on the set. The band's 1974 concert from Providence, Rhode Island is presented in it's entirety on CDs One and Two; this was the second-to-last live concert ever performed by this incarnation of King Crimson. - Many of the recordings on this album are band improvisations. "The Law of Maximum Distress" appears in two sections, as the tape ran out in the middle of the song. Much of the missing material seems to be used on "The Mincer" from Starless and Bible Black. As Robert Fripp notes in the CD jacket, "Most live recording follows the policy of two machines in use simultaneously to meet an eventuality such as this. We learn."

Ash Ra Tempel - Le Berceau de Cristal CD $17.98
1975 live performance from Manuel Gottsching & company.
Asia - British Live Performance Series CD $14.98
ASIA - British Live Performance Series - Recorded in 1990 in Nottingham, England, the album finds the group in epic form. Founder members John Wetton, drummer Carl Palmer and keyboardist Geoff Downes link with guitarist Pat Thrall to present a live greatest hits, from the three major singles - "Heat Of The Moment," "Only Time Will Tell" and "Sole Survivor" - from their first album through to later highlights "Go" and "Voice Of America". With the help of label boss David Geffen and manager John Kalodner, the band would become one of MTV's biggest stars then, and a classic rock staple now. This show captures Asia at their best - in concert, where their virtuoso musicianship can be best appreciated. No studio trickery is needed to recreate the music for which the band is rightly known. Defiantly rock-based anthems like "Time Again" and "The Heat Goes On" that had illuminated the sterile, electronic '80s remained relevant in a new decade. As Carl Palmer put it, this was - and is - "English rock with a technical side - sophisticated rock mixed in with melodies and singles."

Barre, Martin - Back To Steel - Digipack Packaging $16.98
Beck, Jeff - Loud Hailer CD $16.98
2016 release, the first studio album in six years from the iconic British rock guitarist. Loud Hailer combines fluid fretwork with topical lyrics to make a powerful statement about everything from the love of power, to the power of love. Loud Hailer, which is another name for a megaphone, is a suitable moniker for an album that isn't shy about speaking it's mind. The two-time Rock and Roll Hall of Famer explains, "I really wanted to make a statement about some of the nasty things I see going on in the world today, and I loved the idea of being at a rally and using this loud device to shout my point of view." To help him write the 11 tracks on Loud Hailer, Beck enlisted two fierce young females from London - singer Rosie Bones and guitarist Carmen Vandenberg. Beck produced Loud Hailer with Filippo Cimatti, who also works with Rosie and Carmen. In addition to the core trio, the album also features drummer Davide Sollazzi and bassist Giovanni Pallotti, who were both recruited by Cimatti. Bones lends her powerful voice to nine of the 11 songs on Loud Hailer, which is then rounded out by two signature Beck instrumentals.

Buchanan, Roy - Genius Of The Guitar: His Early Records UK - Import $19.98
EU-only two CD collection. During the early 1970s, Roy Buchanan was feted as the greatest rock guitarist the world had ever known. This superb CD from Jasmine takes a step back into his early career where he spent many years scuffling as a guitar slinger in numerous bands and doing a substantial amount of session work. Collected across this 44 track set are examples of his dynamic guitar contributions to a bevy of national, regional and downright parochial recording artists including Dale Hawkins, Bob Luman, Freddy Cannon, and Danny and The Juniors. As well as all that there a couple of singles released under his own name plus a couple or more tracks where the jury is still out as to the identity of the guitar player. Outstanding guitar work is what this CD is all about and although these early recordings don't quite give the full picture of his exemplary talent for improvisation and creativity that would come in the 70s, they certainly show the signs of it developing, and tracks such as "The Jam (Part 1 and 2)" demonstrate his dynamic and original guitar sound.
Burroughs, William S. - Let Me Hang You CD $12.98
Twenty years ago, William S. Burroughs was asked to record an audio version of his favorite parts of Naked Lunch. Longtime associates and producers Hal Willner and James Grauerholz produced several sessions, and they recruited a team of world class musicians to help. Famed for their Naked City involvement, Bill Frisell and Wayne Horvitz contributed their genius, as well as Eyvind Kang, just to name a few. The recordings were then abandoned and collected dust on a musty shelf, as forgotten as a piece of rancid ectoplasm on a peepshow floor. Let Me Hang You is a collection of depraved genius straight from the godfather of punk's very own mouth. If chills and thrills are what you seek, then look no further - here is the bible of freakdom, recited by the pope of the underground... Now, pull the chair from underneath you and see what happens!

Jones, Wizz & Ralph McTell - About Time UK - Import $27.98
Kaiser, Henry - Nazca Lines Canada - Import $26.98
This album consists of 22 freely improvised solos on 18 different acoustic guitars. In the past 5 years, Henry Kaiser released seven solo discs that consist of long (70-80 minute) electric guitar solos. In this latest release, he explores the short solo guitar format, with solos wherein the mind of the listener can hold the beginning, middle, and end of the musical stories in one mentation. In the tradition of Derek Bailey's 1975 classic album IMPROVISATION on the Italian CRAMPS label, these solos are short virtuoso expressions of extended guitar language and technique. More significantly, they are expositions of many new approaches to musical narrative. Akin to short story format, as opposed to novels, the improvisations are concise, otherworldly, and surprisingly electric-sounding for being played on acoustic guitars. Imagine Henry Kaiser, Derek Bailey, Robert Peter Williams, Morton Feldman, Robbie Basho, Joseph Spence, Toru Takemitsu, Karlheinz Stockhausen, D'Gary, Teta, and Masayuki Takayanagi sitting around a campfire for a crazy acoustic guitar jamboree, that is then transfigured through a sonic-kaleidoscope, inter-dimensional, space warp, and you can begin to guess what this recording sounds like.

Miller, Steve - The Joker Live CD $11.98
The Joker Live in Concert by Steve Miller Band - It's been a little over 40 years since the Steve Miller Band released their much-heralded record, 'The Joker,' and now the band is marking that milestone with a special live album. Released in 1973, 'The Joker,' fueled by it's chart-topping title song, became Miller's commercial breakthrough. For the next decade he became one of rock's most reliable hit-makers, with songs like 'Fly Like an Eagle,' 'Jet Airliner' and 'Swingtown.' When several friends and colleagues reminded me that it was the 40th birthday of The Joker album, I smiled-and started playing the whole album's songs live again," Steve Miller said in a press release. "And at the end of the last tour realized we had a great new record that we wanted to share with our fans. We hope you like it as much as we did playing and recording it."
Miller, Steve - Wide River CD $11.98
Steve Miller was a mainstay of the San Francisco music scene that upended American culture in the late '60s. With albums like Children of the Future, Sailor and Brave New World, Miller perfected a psychedelic blues sound that drew on the deepest sources of American roots music and simultaneously articulated a compelling vision of what music-and society-could be in the years to come. Then, in the '70s, Miller crafted a brand of rock 'n' roll music that was polished, exciting and irresistible, and that has dominated radio through today. Hit followed hit in an endless flow: "The Joker," "Livin' in the USA," "Take the Money and Run," "Rock'n Me," "Fly Like an Eagle," "Jet Airliner," "Jungle Love," and "Abracadabra" among them. To this day, these songs are instantly recognizable when they come on the radio-and impossible not to sing along with. When the often overlooked Wide River was originally released in June 1993, it was Miller's first album in five years and turned out to be his last album for seventeen years, until 2010's Bingo! A return to his definitive '70s form, the self-produced album was recorded with his regular touring band and features all of Miller's vintage bluesy pop/rock signatures.
Monkees - Instant Replay - Deluxe 50Th Anniversary Ltd. Ed., Original Master Recording $17.98

Despite having already quit the group, Peter Tork makes an appearance on this album by playing guitar on "I Won't Be the Same Without Her."

Porcupine Tree - Lightbulb Sun CD $14.98
Porcupine Tree - Signify CD $14.98
Residents - Daydream B-liver CD $19.98
Daydream B-Liver was released by The Residents' Fan Club UWEB in 1991. It's an assortment of music from the years 1971 to 1991. The oldest material is a recording of a live show at The Boarding House in '71. The Residents were assisted by Snakefinger for the event. Then there is three tracks from the Stars & Hank Forever sessions that were not used on the original album. Daydream In Space was recorded by the band especially for this compilation. It is a nod to Sun Ra and Barry White. Dog Glue is an unused snippet from the Baby King music used on The King And Eye. The 1990s are represented by music from the Freak Show and Cube E sessions, including a live rehearsal for a German TV show. The song that gives the album its title (apart from it being part B of Liver Music) is a cover version of The Monkees' hit single of the (nearly) same name. As a bonus, we have included the Special Almost Dance Mix of Hit The Road Jack, a song that The Residents recorded in 1987 as a follow-up to Kaw-Liga. This version has previously never been available on CD. Comes with a new front cover by Pore No Graphics.

Sea Level - Sea Level / Long Walk On A Short Pier CD $16.98
Having put out Sea Level's second and third albums, we're now polishing off their Capricorn album catalog by releasing the first and last albums on a single CD! Sea Level had begun as a Allman Brothers spinoff, with three members of the mid-'70s ABB (keyboardist Chuck Leavell, percussionist Jai Johanny "Jaimoe" Johanson and bassist Lamar Williams) leading their proto-jam band mixture of jazz, blues, and rock on the debut record, which was highlighted by such instrumentals as "The Rain in Spain" and "Tidal Wave" as well as the Leavell organ showcase "Grand Larceny." And though the band had changed quite a bit between the first and fourth record-Jaimoe and drummer George Weaver had left, and guitarist Davis Causey, saxophonist/keyboardist Randall Bramblett, and drummer Joe English had joined-the band maintained it's superb "level" of musicianship, even though Long Walk on a Short Pier didn't come out in the U.S. for 20 years due to contractual problems with Capricorn. Both albums have been out of print on CD for over a decade and command huge prices on the reselllers' market; they appear here with notes by Scott Schinder featuring exclusive quotes from Chuck Leavell himself!
Security Project - Live 1 UK - Import $21.98
The timeless music of Peter Gabriel finds new life with The Security Project. Members of King Crimson, Shriekback and Gabriel's original band take these classics and give them new wings for the 21st Century. Added to the pedigree of these players is the voice of Brian Cummins.

These immaculate arrangements show a live band brewing something deep from these original musical recipes. The Security Project tours worldwide. A West Coast tour starts in May and an East Coast one in October.

Smyth, Gilli - Mother Remastered, UK - Import $21.98
Esoteric Recordings are proud to announce the release of a newly re-mastered edition of the classic 1978 album by Gong member GILLI SMYTH, "Mother". Comprised of recordings dating as far back as 1972 (some featuring Gong), "Mother" is arguably one of the finest albums in the wider Gong family. Described as "A psychedelic, spacey invocation of motherhood, an examination of gender roles and reincarnation", the album was mostly created in Mallorca by Gilli Smyth's then-partner and Gong visionary, Daveid Allen, who also played on the album. The album also saw guest appearances from saxophonist Didier Malherbe, bassist Christian Tristch and drummer Pip Pyle among others. Featuring the customary Daevid Allen touch of imaginative edits and sound collages, "Mother" is a joy from beginning to end. This new, official release has been newly re-mastered and includes a booklet with liner notes by Gong archivist and expert Jonny Greene.

Sun Ra - Cosmos CD $16.98
Expect to find contradictions here, contrasting shapes that butt against each other, prodding the complacent listener like a gadfly to travel with the sounds, to release, to explore. My Music, notes Sun Ra, will at first frighten people. My music represents happiness, and people aren t used to that yet. Cosmos is Sun Ra s philosophy embedded in plastic, courtesy of Inner City Records. It is an unprecedented look at the inner and outer worlds of sound; a magic mixture of the exotic and the mundane, the supernatural and the material, the solar wind beating against the rings of Saturn and the gentle spring breeze blowing a nearby oak tree. If nothing else, it is a voyage. To the stars. To the cosmos. To the edge of the universe. Beyond the unknown. -Eric Kriss
Sun Ra & John Cage - Complete Performance: John Cage Meets Sun Ra - Digipack Packaging $16.98

Surman, John - Morning Glory CD $16.98
At the time of it's original release in 1973, Morning Glory, seemed a surprising departure for saxophonist John Surman. It seemed to owe more to the music being made by Miles Davis, Weather Report and Tony Williams' Lifetime in the USA or Ian Carr's Nucleus and Soft Machine in the UK than it did to the often abstract, free but determinedly acoustic music that Surman had pioneered up to that point. Hindsight tells another story. Morning Glory stands as both a consolidation of his work to date and, like the solo Westering Home, it offers a signpost for his work in subsequent years. Surman chose his partners for the recording very carefully, drawing from his friends and trusted collaborators. In particular, Terje Rypdal on electric guitar and John Taylor on both acoustic and electric pianos allows for an expanded musical palette. The rhythm section of Malcolm Griffiths on trombone, Chris Laurence on bass and John Marshall's chattering drums lay down a remarkably elastic rhythmic counterpoint. All of these musical signatures would become even more evident in his later recordings for ECM. Re-mastering from the original master tapes supervised by John Surman.
Surman, John - Westering Home CD $16.98
Fledg'ling are very proud to bring Westering Home to CD. Westering Home was originally released in 1972. John Surman plays everything on the album, drawing together many of the threads of his earlier recordings with the possibilities offered by technology (and his own prodigious musicality). "I took a break from being on the road. This was just around the time when mono had become stereo, and then - in a flash - multi-track recording became possible. I was fascinated by the possibilities of, say, three bass clarinets on different tracks improvising together. Plus I had a curiosity about 'radiophonics' and tape manipulation and Pierre Henry's musique concrete. So it was in that spirit that I started work on what was to become Westering Home." Surman was born in Tavistock, North Devon. He initially gained recognition playing baritone saxophone in the Mike Westbrook Band in the mid-1960s, and was soon heard regularly playing soprano saxophone and bass clarinet as well. Surman developed a fearsome reputation as a prolific collaborator and session musician, before recording a series of albums under his own name beginning with the eponymous John Surman in 1969. His relationship with ECM Records has been continuous from the late 1970s to the present; Surman has recorded prolifically for the label playing bass clarinet, recorders, soprano and baritone saxophones and using synthesizers, both solo and with a wide range of other musicians.

Tubes - Young And Rich / Now - 2PC $19.98
The fact that these two albums, their second and third releases, were out of print for years is eloquent testimony to the fact that The Tubes are one of the most underrated bands of the '70s. This was a band that blended disparate strands of Album-Oriented Rock into a vision all their own. Salacious Zappa-like satire? Check. Over the top theatricality a la Alice Cooper? Check. BOC-like hard rock? Check. Even avant-garde, Beefheart-ian atonality cropped up in unexpected places. Yet underneath all the pomp and circumstance this San Francisco group was still just a bar band, and it was these radically different stylistic directions that held back these records from widespread commercial success even as they rewarded those listeners that hung on for the ride. Whether live, with the various personas adopted by Fee Waybill, or in the studio, The Tubes approached each song as a conceptual art piece; such songs as "Don't Touch Me There," "Slipped My Disco," "Cathy's Clone" and "God-Bird-Change" attest that they damn well pulled it off. One CD wasn't enough to hold these records; we've given them each their own disc, and added liner notes by Gene Sculatti drawn from a new interview with drummer Prairie Prince along with the original inner-sleeve art. Essential '70s artifacts whose vision remains vital and relevant.
Twenty Four Hours - Left-To-Live Italy - Import $21.98
TWENTY-FOUR HOURS is a modern Italian band led by keyboardist-singer Paolo LIPPE. The quartet performs a brand of music that can be defined as quite close, in spirit more than in form, to PORCUPINE TREE. Following in this its main inspiration, "Oval Dreams" elegantly and convincingly blends airy guitars with linear rhythm lines and energetic themes. PINK FLOYD and OZRIC TENTACLES could be mentioned here as well. Still not convinced ? Even if one tells you that one of the tracks is called "Twenty-Four-Pink-Hot-Tentacles" ?? There are also two cover versions on this album revealing two other major influences: VAN DER GRAAF GENERATOR's "Darkness - 11/11" and THE BEATLES' "Mother Nature's Son". This piece of work finishes stylishly with "The Bastards", an almost 20-minute epic-suite ! The fifth rendition by TWENTY-FOUR HOURS, "Left-To-Live - A Meditation On Past And Present Perfect Crimes" (Musea, 2016) is an ambitious classic concept-album, the achievement of a quarter of a Century of existence. The lyrics are asking the question of our collective reaction, if there was only one day left for Mankind. What will be remembered of our stay on Earth ? How would we then judge our acts, sometimes questionable, a few hours before the end ?... For once, the Italian musicians decided to leave the artistic side to an independent producer, Andrea VALFRE (LE ORME), also responsible for some of the arrangements. The result is an impressive masterpiece !

Winter, Johnny - I'm A Bluesman UK - Import $22.98
Reissue of this 2004 album from the blues guitarist. His first album of new material in almost eight years was certainly very much in the straightforward blues-rock mold, emphasis on the "blues" over "rock." The songs here are a mixture of originals, contributions from past and present sidemen. A fantastic collection of good-natured blues-rock, and the acoustic "That Wouldn't Satisfy" that provides inspired moments. Winter's slide guitar on this track is simply superb. Johnny Winter was an American blues guitarist, multi-instrumentalist, singer, and producer. Best known for his high-energy blues-rock albums and live performances in the late 1960s and 1970s, he also produced three Grammy Award-winning albums for blues singer and guitarist Muddy Waters. After his time with Waters, Winter recorded several Grammy-nominated blues albums. In 1988, he was inducted into the Blues Foundation Hall of Fame and in 2003, he was ranked 63rd in Rolling Stone magazine's list of the "100 Greatest Guitarists of All Time".
Winter, Johnny - Woodstock Revival 10 Year Anniversary Festival 79 CD $16.98
Johnny Winter, live at Woodstock Revival, 10 Year Anniversary Festival 1979 on 8th September 1979. There have been several high profile anniversary reunions for Woodstock 10, 25 and 30 years after this iconic event first took place, but one of the most interesting occurred when many of the original musicians converged on Long Island's Parr Meadows in Brookhaven, New York to celebrate the tenth anniversary. Unlike later events, this was a true reunion for many of the musicians who played the 1969 festival. Johnny Winter was undoubtedly one of the main attractions and festival high points and the combination of Winter with Bobby Torello and Jon Paris makes for immense impact both on the ears and the memory banks. Klondike proudly presents the entire original WBAB-FM broadcast of Johnny Winter live from Woodstock Reunion 1979, at Parr Meadows, Brookhaven, New York on Saturday 8th September 1979. Professionally re-mastered original broadcast with background liners and rare archival photos.

The album features performances of songs from a range of Young's albums, including last year's The Monsanto Years, 1990's Ragged Glory, and 1970's After the Gold Rush. The audio was captured during Young's 2015 tour with The Promise of the Real, fronted by Willie Nelson's sons Lukas (vocals/guitar) and Micah (guitar, vocals). The tour included Young performing solo and with the band for a full electric show. A new take on some of Young's most beloved songs, Earth features the live recordings, along with added musical overdubs, as well as sounds of the earth, such as city sounds like car horns, sounds of insects, and animal sounds from bears, birds, crickets, bees, horses, cows - creating a very strange, yet beautiful atmosphere. "Ninety-eight uninterrupted minutes long, Earth flows as a collection of 13 songs from throughout my life, songs I have written about living here on our planet together," says Young. "Our animal kingdom is well represented in the audience as well, and the animals, insects, birds, and mammals actually take over the performances of the songs at times."
