This release captures two complete concerts held at the Seminole Indian reservation in Florida on May 23 and 24, 1969, three months after Live Dead and a month after the Midwest shows immortalized on Dick's Picks Vol. 26.

Show two starts with another half-hour but very different "Lovelight, " as Pigpen slowly turns up the heat, followed by the rare "He Was a Friend of Mine, " "Alligator, " and another "St. Stephen" (flying out of "Drums" for the only time during its 1968-1971 incarnation) among other treats.

Wakeman, Rick - The Burning CD $17.99
The soundtrack from the movie The Burning is on side two of this album, with side one featuring "The Wakeman Variations" on some of the same material. With the exception of the "End Title Theme," the soundtrack is unusual for Wakeman, including some eerie ambient electronics, a horror story narrated by Brian Matthews, and two tracks on which Wakeman doesn't play, one a country-rock tune featuring banjo and pedal steel guitar. The "Variations" are keyboard-led instrumentals more in the Wakeman tradition

The Rolling Stones' No Security tour ran from January to June 1999 through North America and Europe. It followed on from the colossal Bridges To Babylon tour and took its name from the "No Security" live album recorded on that 1997/98 tour. In reaction to the huge stadiums played on Bridges To Babylon the conscious decision was made to book smaller venues for the initial North American leg of the No Security tour. This latest addition to the acclaimed From The Vaults series was filmed at the San Jose Arena in front of an audience of a little over 30,000 (intimate by Rolling Stones standards!) at the end of the North American dates. Previously unreleased, it captures the band in top form playing a set that spans from mid-sixties hit singles up to the then current Bridges To Babylon album.

Davies, Ray - Our Country: Americana Act 2 - Digipack Packaging CD $14.99
2018 release from the former Kinks singer/songwriter. This release is the follow-up to his 2017 LP Americana. According to Davies, Our Country: Americana Act II "follows my journey across America; through endless tours not just to reclaim the Kinks' career, but to rediscover the country that offered me my earliest inspirations," Our Country: Americana Act II was preceded by it's first single and opening track "Our Country," a rootsy rocker about Davies' conflicted relationship with America. "This is my country/And I can't believe/That one day I'd want to leave these shores forever," Davies sings on the chorus. "The book [Americana] has got some song references in it and the songs are part of the narrative, so the trick was to get the record to stand up as a record as well as being part of a series," Davies says. "I think people that like the first album understand where it's going. [Our Country] is what happens when you get there."
Di Meola, Al - Elegant Gypsy & More (live) CD $15.99

Al di Meola is burning for his passion - the music. With 'Elegant Gypsy & More LIVE'; partly recorded on his very successful 'Elegant Gypsy 40th Anniversary'-US Tour in 2017, Al di Meola proves once again that jazz music tremendously 'rocks'.

Faithful, Marianne - Rich Kid Blues UK - Import CD $14.99
Digitally remastered edition. Rich Kid Blues is a studio album by Marianne Faithfull, recorded in 1971 under the name Masques and released in 1985. Produced by Mike Leander, who had produced and arranged much of Faithfull's Decca material, Rich Kid Blues is an intriguing album of spare, largely acoustic readings of folk/rock songs including several Bob Dylan covers, as well as songs by Phil Ochs, George Harrison, Cat Stevens, Tim Hardin, James Taylor and Sandy Denny. Marianne Faithfull had this to say about the 1971 recordings: "The record itself is very strange and ghostly. It's the voice of somebody incredibly high, probably on the edge of death. They always sound like that. Johnny Thunders sounds like that. Anybody who heard that record would have said, 'Well that's that. We'll never hear from her again'."

Godfrey, Robert John & The Enid - 70th Birthday Concert: Live At Union Chapel UK - Import CD $29.99
Grateful Dead - Anthem Of The Sun (50th Anniversary Deluxe Edition) - Ltd 2PC CD $24.99
Deluxe two CD 50th Anniversary edition. This double disc set includes two versions of the original album - one fully remastered from the original 1968 mix, and the other remastered from the more well-known 1971 mix. Both mixes of the albums were mastered by Grammy-winning engineer David Glasser from the original analog master tapes. The set also includes a bonus disc with a previously unreleased complete live show recorded on October 22, 1967 at Winterland in San Francisco, CA. The band's most experimental album, Anthem Of The Sun was an unprecedented mix of studio and live recordings stitched together to create a hybrid. Fifty years later, it remains a pinnacle of psychedelic music. It also marked a departure for the band, as they began to channel their creativity into longer jams on songs like "Alligator" and "Caution (Do Not Stop On Tracks)" - two live staples of the Dead's early days. "This is one the most thrilling albums The Grateful Dead ever produced, mixing portions of live recordings from the first six months of Mickey's tenure with the band, along with studio experimentations that would hint at where the Dead would go when they started recording to 16-track tape the following year."

And they were just as good as ever, as you can hear on this extraordinary slice of vintage British head music.

In late October/early November, the album was released in Canada by Capitol Records. The Canadian track listing was almost the same as the UK version, except it included the hit "Do Wah Diddy Diddy" instead of "I've Got My Mojo Working". The record has been called "one of the great blues-based British invasion albums; it's a hot, rocking record that benefits from some virtuoso playing as well".

Mothersbaugh, Mark - Hotel Transylvania (Original Soundtrack) CD $14.99
Mountain - Flowers Of Evil / Live (The Road Goes On Forever) UK - Import CD $19.99

The first (a #35 LP) is split between studio tracks ("Crossroader," the title song and more) and live ones including a rock 'n' roll medley and their signature smash "Mississippi Queen."

Mountain - Live - The Road Goes Ever On CD $16.99
Digitally remastered edition of this 1972 release. Windfall assembled this outstanding live document of the original version of the band Mountain following their breakup. The album features a couple of tracks from their landmark performance at the Woodstock festival and the epic centerpiece of the album, a majestic extended version of 'Nantucket Sleighride'. Leslie West, Felix Pappalardi, Corky Laing and Steve Knight were riding their first wave of success with their first two studio albums when these performances were documented. This version of the band could flat-out cook and the extended cuts show that they knew how to jam with a sense of power and dynamics. The performances were mastered from the original tapes by Vic Anesini and the liner notes by Ralph Chapman place the whole project in the proper perspective. The album is fleshed out by an extended bonus performance of "Stormy Monday" that was culled from another early '70s festival performance.
Mr Big - Live From Milan - 2 CD/Blu-Ray CD $21.99
2CD/Blu-ray Following the release of their 2017 album, 'Defying Gravity', Mr. Big set out on a trek that took them all over the world to promote the new release in a live setting. Anyone who has ever had the distinct pleasure of seeing the band live knows that the virtuoso musicianship and incredible vocals are on full display in this setting. By this time, drummer Pat Torpey's battle with Parkinson s Disease had been made public, but Pat toured with the band regardless and sat behind the drum kit for select songs, while also providing background vocals, tambourine, etc. On other tracks when Matt Starr was taking his turn on the kit. Captured at a stop in Milan, IT, 'LIVE FROM MILAN' has a tracklisting that will surely satisfy long-time and newer fans of the band, and of course contains bass and guitar solos from the always entertaining and awe inspiring Billy Sheehan and Paul Gilbert, respectively. Sadly, this would be one of Pat Torpey s last performances with the band as he passed away from complications due to Parkinson's in early 2018. The set captures a special moment in time for the band and also serves as a 'greatest hits' of sorts as they hit on all their classic songs from the early albums as well as revered material from newer releases.

Released in April 1974, the album was the product of a series of recording sessions beset by power cuts, the result of industrial strife during the winter of 1973. Despite having to work around these difficult conditions, Exotic Birds and Fruit would prove to be another fine collection of material written by Gary Brooker and lyricist Keith Reid, featuring such classic tracks as 'Nothing But The Truth', 'As Strong As Samson', 'Beyond The Pale', 'Butterfly Boys' and 'The Idol'.

Ravenstine, Allen - Waiting For The Bomb CD $16.99
Eccentricity in music is tricky in that it's difficult to embrace it in moderation without it coming off as.overly & gratingly deliberate, or teetering.into full-blown novelty. Pere Ubu co-founder Allen Ravenstine's Waiting For The Bomb is a rare exception where peculiarity, nuance & genuine warmth align in such a way as to perch right on that edge & it is all the more evocative because of it.
Regal Worm - Pig Views UK - Import CD $21.99
Residents - Rmx CD $19.99
The Residents are fiddlers. Not fiddle players, just fiddlers. They like to play around and see different ways their songs could sound. They call this RMX. Some say RMX stands for "remix" but with The Residents, who knows? While the RMX concept is mostly associated with two album projects (The King and Eye RMX and WB: RMX), The Residents had also tinkered with individual songs. These were released as free streaming tracks on the band's official MySpace page (yes, they had one). In 2007 most of these tracks were collected in a compilation simply titled RMX, first made available on iTunes. Never before have this tunes been available on a physical release, so we are now glad to present you RMX as a CD including two previously unreleased rmx's! New cover artwork by Pore Know Graphics.
Rhodes, Happy - Ectotrophia CD $16.99
The first authoritative compilation of American dream pop artist Happy Rhodes, whose singular songwriting and 4-octave vocal range emanated from the pastoral confines of upstate New York in the '80s. Her melding of classical music influences with synthesizer and acoustic guitar, and her enchanting and idiosyncratic singing, are favorably compared to heralded English chanteuse Kate Bush. Fans of such artistic pop music would be remiss to overlook Rhodes's similarly remarkable and otherworldly sonic transmissions, traversing tales of dreamers, outsiders, lovers and other lovely and terrifying creatures born of a wellspring of wild creativity and bold imagination. Affectionately remastered from the original tapes, Ectotrophia gathers essential songs from Rhodes's mid-'80s salad days, many written when she was just a teenager - wildly ahead of her time and unafraid to bare her soul to regional audiences, the ectophiles who'd eventually coin an entire subgenre of pop music in her honor. Dive deep into ecto, with the woman who started it all!

Esoteric Recordings are pleased to announce the release of a new re-mastered and expanded edition of the album Psi-Fi by SEVENTH WAVE. Released in 1975 by Gull Records, Psi-Fi was the second album by SEVENTH WAVE, initially a studio project which was the brainchild of musicians KEN ELLIOTT and KIERAN O'CONNOR (previously with the pioneering group Second Hand). Psi-Fi followed on from the acclaimed Things to Come (released the previous year) and was the result of many sessions at Chalk Farm Studios in London. Unlike the previous Seventh Wave album, Psi-Fi saw keyboard player / vocalist Ken Elliott and percussionist Kieran O'Connor were joined in the studio by such guests as keyboard player HUGH BANTON (of Van Der Graaf Generator), vocalists ROB ELLIOTT and PEPI LEMER and bass guitarist STEVE COOKPsi-Fi was another ground-breaking album and was critically acclaimed upon it's release, being very much ahead of it's time, proving inspirational to a new generation of musicians. The album has now been re-mastered from the Gull master tapes and includes two bonus tracks; the single versions of Manifestations and Only the Beginning (Part 1) (previously unreleased on CD). This new edition of Psi-Fi restores the original album artwork and features an essay by Malcolm Dome and exclusive interviews with Ken Elliott, Hugh Banton and producer Neil Richmond
Seventh Wave - Things To Come Expanded Version, Remastered, UK - Import CD $20.99
Esoteric Recordings are pleased to announce the release of a new re-mastered and expanded edition of the album Things To Come by SEVENTH WAVE. Released in 1974 by Gull Records, Things To Come was the brainchild of musicians KEN ELLIOTT and KIERAN O'CONNOR (previously with the pioneering group Second Hand). The conceptual album was recorded at Chalk Farm Studios in London and was the result of many hours of meticulous overdubbing, with Ken Elliott playing an arsenal of keyboards and utilising the latest synthesiser technology of the day (in addition to providing vocals), whilst Kieran O'Connor played a multitude of percussion. The finished work was truly ground-breaking and in hindsight was very much ahead of it's time, proving inspirational to a new generation of musicians. A stunning work of technical complexity, Things To Come was critically acclaimed and led to Seventh Wave becoming a fully-fledged touring band that would include HUGH BANTON (of Van Der Graaf Generator) among their ranks. The album has now been re-mastered from the Gull master tapes and includes a bonus track of the single version of Metropolis (previously unreleased on CD). This new edition of Things To Come restores the original album artwork and features an essay by Malcolm Dome and exclusive interviews with Ken Elliott, Hugh Banton and producer Neil Richmond.
Shankar, Ravi - Rough Guide To Ravi Shankar CD $15.99
Pandit Ravi Shankar, a Bengali cultural catalyst if ever there was one. When people say that India colonized the Western mind, much of it was of his doing, and when it came to getting people to pay heed to the wonders of Hindustani music, nobody ever surpassed Ravi Shankar - India's best-known sitar player opened the breach through which many others poured. Through his influence, this missionary, pioneer and experimenter changed the face of contemporary Western music. Blessed with a highly cosmopolitan background and a flair for adaptability, he was the right man in the right places at a rightly receptive time. Of worldwide influence, Ravi Shankar has managed to enter the non-Indian consciousness and vocabulary in a way that only a select pantheon have.

Tangekanic - Hotel Can't Afford It CD $15.99
Tangekanic, the hybrid band featuring members of The Tangent and Karmakanic who play songs from both bands' repertoire have recently completed a live "bootleg" style recording of one show recorded at the New Jersey proghouse in the USA last October. The album, "HOTEL CANTAFFORDIT", features material from both bands' more recent output rather than a procession of golden oldies, so tracks from Karmakanic's "Dot" and The Tangent's "The Slow Rust Of Forgotten Machinery" dominate the proceedings. Not only that but while on the tour, the band wrote a new song together, this being a piece they wrote in reaction to the third concert massacre in recent years at the Harvest Festival in Las Vegas, USA. This track is also on the new live album. The song "Sanctuary In Music" featured a 30 second silence as part of the music and was described by many people as "the loudest part of the festival". Tangekanic will release a powerful (non-perfomance) lyric video of the song, complete with it's silence, illustrated by photos sent in by the bands' supporters on the theme of "My sanctuary in music". It will be first posted on the Tangent's Facebook group at www. Facebook. com/groups/alltangentmembers and the guys & gals at Prog Mag have kindly offered to share the video too Jonas Reingold - Bass Guitar Andy Tillison - Keyboards & Vocals Luke Machin - Guitars & Backing Vocals Steve Roberts - Drums Goran Edman - Vocals.

Travis, Theo & Robert Fripp - Between The Silence UK - Import, 3PC CD $25.99
Between The Silence is a specially priced three CD set comprising three complete concerts recorded in 2009 and 2010. Evocative Soundscapes and inventive improvs collide in the most wondrous of ways. Travis & Fripp has proved to be one of the most enduring of Robert Fripp's many duo projects - all the more remarkable given that both musicians are consistently involved in other projects. For Fripp, a renewed King Crimson has been a primary musical enterprise since 2014, while Travis has in recent years recorded and toured with David Sylvian, Steven Wilson, Soft Machine and more. Most of the music featured is new to CD, with only two tracks having appeared in different/edited form on the album Follow. As ever the music produced by Travis & Fripp remains wonderfully difficult to neatly categorize - sometimes quiet, but never to the extent that it could be described as 'ambient' - improvisational, but not in such a manner as to call it 'jazz' - using electronics, but not resulting in music that could be described as 'electronica.' It is, nonetheless, music that has touched a great many people - both in concert and as presented on discs - with this release marking the duo's fifth recorded relea

Wakeman, Rick - Amazing Grace - With DVD, 2PC CD $17.99
Deluxe CD + DVD pressing. 2007 release, a stunning set of interpretations of devotional Christian music. Rick Wakeman's interest in music began at an early age and it was originally thought that a career as a classical pianist lay in store for Rick and a spell at the Royal College Of Music would seem to support this theory. Unfortunately Rick preferred playing in bands and appearing on the lucrative session circuit than studying as a classical pianist and decided to leave the Royal College of Music or was perhaps gently pushed in that direction depending on whose story you believe. Whatever the facts one thing is certain Rick Wakeman was in heavy demand playing sessions for some of the biggest names in pop music at this time (Late sixties/early seventies) and as such played on many hit singles including records by Brotherhood Of Man, Cat Stevens, T. Rex and also played on the David Bowie single Space Oddity. Around this time Rick also decided to join the British folk rock band the Strawbs and it was with this band that Rick first caught the attention of the band with whom he is most closely associated... Yes.

The result is an exciting new context for Zorn the performer. With special guest Ikue Mori creating moody electronic soundscapes, the music is as hypnotic as it is exhilarating. Three pieces of sonic voodoo for the 21st century!

Humble Pie - Official Bootleg Box Set Vol 2 UK - Import, 5PC CD $32.99
Five CD set. Hot on the heels of last year's Humble Pie's Official Bootleg Box Set Volume 1 comes the Official Bootleg Box Set Volume 2, collating rare and previously (officially) unreleased live shows that were illicitly recorded between 1971 and 1981. Whilst every effort has been made to produce the best possible audio, limitations in the material drawn from various, non-standard, and un-official sources means that the quality may not be up to the standard usually expected. All tracks have been included for their historical importance, and to present an anthology of Humble Pie live on stage from 1971-1981. The Official Bootleg Box Set Volume 2 is a raw testament to what this band did best; playing bluesy, gutsy, soulful hard rock, live on stage. Drawn from a variety of mainly audience recordings that have previously only been available as "under the counter" pirate releases, this is an honest, often unforgiving, tribute to a classic and much missed '70s super-group.

These live performances were captured at the height of the band's power, in 1967 at the Whisky A Go-Go, LA and 1968 at the Carousel Ballroom, San Francisco. They burned brightly for two years and then egos ripped the group apart. The Whisky performance took place just one week after they opened for Cream at the Fillmore West. The Carousel Ballroom show is comprised of the best performances from the 4 shows they did that night.

Three CD set. Cherry Red are proud to announce an expanded edition of The Butterfly Ball And The Grasshopper's Feast. After leaving Purple in 1973, Roger Glover was asked to compose music to the illustrated book of the same name by William Plomer and Alan Aldridge. His first major project since leaving Purple, Roger was able to enlist many top names to help him realize his vision, including Glenn Hughes and David Coverdale, then both in Deep Purple as well as Elf's Micky Lee Soule and Ronnie James Dio. Not included on the original vinyl LP, the single 'Little Chalk Blue' featuring future Uriah Heep singer John Lawton is also featured on CD One.

Guess Who - So Long Bannatyne CD $15.99
Digitally remastered and expanded edition. The Guess Who proved they could weather a significant personnel change with 1970's triumphant Share The Land. The 1971 follow-up, So Long, Bannatyne saw the band branching out, embracing more eclectic and less polished and commercial material, much of it with a considerably darker hue than the band's earlier material and heavily influenced by John Lennon's visceral Plastic Ono Band. A fascinating lyrical continuity emerges that reveals a band and it's principal writers burdened by success, cynical, tormented; the result being a kind of ad hoc concept record centering around themes of desperation, anger, disillusionment and resignation, topics frontman Burton Cummings would continue to explore throughout the rest of The Guess Who's lifespan.
Hensley, Ken - Rare & Timeless CD $11.99
"Rare & Timeless" is a new anthology, curated and driven by Ken Hensley himself. Not only has he compiled the anthology with the Heep and Hensley fan in mind, he has also recorded two new compositions for the anthology along with an exclusive re-record. Backed with a raft of rare/unreleased tracks and his take on the classic Uriah Heep hit, 'Lady in Black.'

Humble Pie - Back On Track / Live In Cleveland - Expanded UK - Import CD $20.99
Their 11th studio album, Back On Track, has much to offer fans of classic Humble Pie as much as fans of classic, blues-based hard rock. Produced with Andy Jackson, famed for his work with Pink Floyd, the album also features guest appearances from Zoot Money on hammond organ. The album was recorded at Jacobs Studios near Farnham in Surrey, as well as David Gilmour's famed houseboat Astoria Studios, between December 2001 and January 2002, and released the following month. 16 years on, Back On Track remains a worthy addition to the Humble Pie catalog. Going back a further 12 years, Jerry Shirley and Humble Pie were touring with a line-up featuring Charlie Huhn, Wally Stocker and Sean Beavan, with a set heavily peppered with Performance: Rockin' The Fillmore classics including 'Four Day Creep', 'Stone Cold Fever', 'I Don't Need No Doctor' and 'Hallelujah (I Love Her So)', as well as a cover of The Babys' 'Head First' and 'Fool For A Pretty Face' from the Pie's On To Victory. Captured at the legendary Agora in Cleveland, Ohio on January 12, 1990, this mid-west venue is evidently a stronghold of Humble Pie fans, if the audience reaction is anything to go by. With plenty of rare pictures, and a new essay with Malcolm Dome based on interviews with Jerry Shirley, HNE are pleased to add this set by a legendary band to their extensive catalog.
Jethro Tull - Heavy Horses CD $15.99

Kaiser, Henry - Deep Unreal - Canada - Import CD $25.99
Beautiful, mysterious, complex, and surprising - the guitar playing mirrors what it is like to enter the alien world below the ice. Each sonic incident has its counterpart below the ice, but not all of the guitarist's companions are his everyday scientific dive buddies. Imagine Conlon Nancarrow in a Day-Glo drysuit, Pete Cosey strapping on his midnight blue tanks, Robbie Basho with paisley fins, as Jerry Garcia gazes through a prismatic ice mask: Henry's ghostly companions, on a mission to go deep and unreal.

Pacific Gas & Electric - Are You Ready - Holland - Import CD $17.99
Digitally remastered edition. 1970's Are You Ready? was released at the end of the Flower Power era. Their masterpiece is their sole gospel-funk-psychedelia hit, 'Are You Ready?' which is to this day a song that most casual rock fans remember. Some of the other songs are closer to average period blues-rock workouts, like 'Miss Lucy' and the live cover of John Lee Hooker's 'She's Long and She's Tall,' though the group original 'My Women' finds them getting into a slow blues-funk groove with graceful style. The four-part, 17-minute 'PG&E Suite' is typical of the highs and lows of many such psychedelic rock experiments of the late '60s. With their classic hit 'Are You Ready?' the album is a true psychedelic monument.
Pineapple Thief - One Three Seven CD $13.99
Pineapple Thief - What We Have Sown CD $13.99

Reininger, Blaine L - The Blue Sleep CD $17.99
2018 release. The Blue Sleep is a studio album by Blaine L. Reininger, the Colorado-born composer and founder member of avant-garde music group Tuxedomoon. Written and recorded by Blaine in 2017, the album was mixed in his adopted hometown of Athens by noted electronic music producer Coti K. Like most of his previous solo projects, The Blue Sleep combines vocal songs with atmospheric instrumental tracks, three of which ('Lost Ballroom', 'Jacob's Ladder' and 'Odi et Amo') were written for Caligula, a theatre production. "These days the music plays me," explains Blaine. "The unifying principle behind the songs on Blue Sleep is the method of composition. I apply fine old aleatory techniques - John Cage, William Burroughs, Tristan Tzara - and filter these through my instinctive knowledge of melody and harmony. Lyrics are generated algorithmically (I work with programs which assemble phrases according to mathematical rules) and then edited by me, with phrases suggested by the random output. That's pretty much my modus operandi in the 21st century."
Savoy Brown - You Should Have Been There CD $15.99
Rock/blues at it's finest. Originally given a limited release in 2004, this "Savoy Brown (featuring Kim Simmonds)" live album, recorded in Vancouver, Canada, now gets a full national release.

Besides those tracks, we get to hear Kim Simmonds, a master guitarist, extend on the blues "Where Has Your Heart gone", an eleven minute opus! The original sleeve notes from Kim are included with almost sixty minutes of music. This CD is a must for new and old fans alike.
Schulze, Klaus - Virtual Outback CD $20.99
Re-Release of the high acclaimed album Virtual Outback (originally released 2000 as part of the strictly limited and long exhausted 5-CD-boxset Contemporary Works II). Virtual Outback was just one single track: the elegiac 65 minute The Theme: The Rhodes Elegy, one of the most favourite of many Schulze fans. The bonustrack is from a filling work for the Chinese mass rally China Millenium on the occasion of the turn of millennium 200/2001. After Klaus' delivery the chinese government said: NO - WAY! First Klaus used the old Mao song, devided by cutting and transposing, and second he used an ethnic sample from Mongolia. That wasn't possible too, due to the fact that Mongolians are a minority in China. The Chinese government stated: either you respect all minorities or no one. Another pearl from the huge Schulze Cosmos.
Smalls, Derek - Smalls Change (meditations Upon Ageing) CD $15.99
THE ROAD OF ROCK is a rocky road, and no one's life exemplifies that more thoroughly than that of Derek Albion Smalls who celebrates his 75th birthday with a hoped-to-be triumphant return to at least one of the echelons of the rock firmament.

2018 release. Sonar's fourth release Vortex reflects the sound of surprise. After three uncompromising quartet albums exploring the edges of minimalist groove, the Swiss group has partnered with renowned guitarist, composer and producer David Torn for it's RareNoise debut. The band, comprised of guitarists Stephan Thelen and Bernhard Wagner, bassist Christian Kuntner and drummer Manuel Pasquinelli have long been celebrated for combining the visceral power and dynamics of art rock with a minimalist aesthetic. Their previous album, 2015's Black Light, attracted significant media and musician attention. Legendary avant-guitarist Henry Kaiser took a particular interest in the group and was determined to pair them up with Torn for their next album.

Stern, Leni - 3 CD $15.99
Stivell, Alan - Human / Kelt - UK - Import CD $26.99
Sun Ra - Bad and Beautiful CD $16.99
Bad and Beautiful is an album by the American jazz musician Sun Ra and his Arkestra. Recorded in 1961 in New York City at the Choreographers' Workshop, 414 W. 51st St., the album was the second to be recorded in New York by the Arkestra after leaving Chicago, but would remain unreleased until 1972. The album is considered to represent an important transition between the big band approach of the Chicago recordings, and the more 'outside' approach of Ra's smaller bands recorded later in the decade:'Aside from "Exotic Two," the tunes are split between standards (apparently the last ones the group would record until the '70s) and blues originals, but there are indications of the direction the Arkestra would take throughout the '60s. "Search Light Blues" has some interesting percussion accents finding their way into the arrangement, and "Exotic Two" alludes more clearly to the percussion-heavy sound that dominated many of the '60s recordings. Sun Ra plays piano exclusively on this recording, and Gilmore gets lots of room to shine. A significant transitional LP, this is probably the last "inside" record the Arkestra would record as they forged new sonic paths into the mid-'60s.' Sean Westergaard, All Music Guide
Tangerine Dream - Quantum Gate / Quantum Key EP - 2PC CD $18.99
Expanded two CD edition of Quantum Gate now including the excellent Quantum Key EP, bringing together Edgars' vision as a two CD set for the first time. It will be presented in a digipack packaging complete with an 8-page booklet. The group has written over 100 studio albums and were led by Edgar Froese, who developed an instantly recognizable synth-based instrumental music based on a meditative musical experience that came to prominence in the '70s and '80s. The Quantum Key EP preceded Quantum Gate and both delivered an updated, contemporary development of their trademark sound: sequencer-driven electronica covering a wide range of moods and atmospheres from ambient soundscapes to energetic, upbeat moments. The Quantum Years material began as a concept and series of musical sketches by Froese before he passed away in 2015. Remaining band members Thorsten Quaeschning, Ulrich Schnauss and Hoshiko Yamane worked together to realize Edgar's visions and expectations of a conceptual body of work that attempts to translate quantum physics and philosophy into music.

Young, Neil - Roxy - Tonight's The Night Live CD $16.99
Live archive release from the rock icon. Roxy - Tonight's The Night Live is one of the most sought-after recordings from his vast archives.

The album's final track "Walk On" would not appear until the release of On The Beach, in July 1974. Young would be the first artist to christen the stage at what would become one of the world's great clubs, The Roxy Theater on the riotous Sunset Strip, right next door to the already infamous Rainbow Bar & Grille. Close your eyes and you'll be right there in that dark, smoky, 500 capacity room in West, L.A. on a hot summer night in 1973. Tonight's The Night would go on to be named one of Rolling Stone's 500 Greatest Albums Of All Time, and universally praised for it's dark honesty and unapologetic raw delivery.

Jansch, Bert - A Man I'd Rather Be (Part 1) - UK - Import CD $49.99
Limited four CD book-back packaging. Comprising Bert's seminal 1960s output (alongside his only album as a duet with Pentangle bandmate John Renbourn) this four disc set covers an era that forged creative paths for everyone from Neil Young to Johnny Marr. Bert's first studio albums capture his most prolific period - these four albums were written, recorded and issued in just two years; a testament to not only Bert's abundant musicality but to a time for music that was changing - excitedly - from minute to minute. From Bert's masterclass in elegant, melodic, one-man-and-his-guitar fingerpicking on his self-titled LP, to the beginnings of something altogether more exotic on Bert and John, these records are nothing if not a remarkable insight into the changing face of folk music at the time. For those unfamiliar with Jansch's oeuvre, this is a real treat; you won't find a more comprehensively produced collection. A Man I'd Rather Be includes all the original liner notes (from both Keith de Groot and Bert himself) as well as new ruminations from Bill Leader (who recorded much of Jansch's nascent work) as well as never-before seen photographs by the illustrious Brian Shuel. For those in the know, this is a chance to revisit these extraordinary albums, revel in new insights and add some - perhaps more listenable LPs - to sit alongside their love-worn originals.

Commander Cody & Lost Planet Airmen - Berkeley Baby Live CD $15.99
In 1972, my friend Freddie Herrera opened a small nightclub in San Francisco. It was a hip joint where I met and worked with Elvin Bishop, the Pointer Sisters and Dan Hicks and His Hot Licks. We were practicing our double live album for Warner Brothers and had a decent recording company (Wally Heider) and we used the Keystone Berkeley as out trial balloon before heading out to London and Hammersmith early the next year. This was John Tichy's last gig and he went off to R.I.P. to become a famous 'perfesser' while we worked Ernie Hagar in on steel guitar. The end was near for the Lost Planet Airmen but we went down swinging. George Frayne "Commander Cody" Nov. 13, 2017

The combination of the band with an almost complete new line up, and a new record company seems very promising and will hopefully open new doors for us!" Kayak was founded in 1972 by keyboardist/composer Ton Scherpenzeel. Often compared to contemporaries like Yes and Focus, the band quickly developed their own style of symphonic rock that was rather concentrating on songs than elaborate solos and long instrumental passages while Kayak never shied away from including epic, longer tracks and captivating, dramatic arrangements. Throughout the years, Kayak has seen many line-up changes with Ton Scherpenzeel now being the only original member and leader of the band.

Nazz - Evolution: From Woody's Truck Stop To Nazz CD $15.99
Woody's Truck Stop came together in Philadelphia, in late May 1966. As young teens, drummer Bob Radeloff and guitarist Alan Miller had been active in a folk group that played in the local area. Miller and Radeloff soon were adding drummer Artie Heller and bassist Carson Van Osten to form a group of their own, heavily inspired by electric blues acts like the Paul Butterfield Blues Band and the Blues Project, as well as Chess blues artists and British blues-rock groups like the Yardbirds. Inspired by a variety of British Invasion groups, from the omnipresent Beatles to cult favorites the Move, Todd Rundgren and his Woody's Truck Stop colleague Carson Van Osten formed The Nazz in 1967. Taking their name from an obscure Yardbirds song, The Nazz were arguably the first Anglophiles in rock history. Compilation of late-'60s demos, alternate takes and unreleased compositions of Todd Rundgren and his early cult band, The Nazz - Songs include Hello It's Me, Open My Eyes and Some People, with unreleased tracks Forget All About It, Only One Winner, Magic Me and others - With only three LPs recorded in their existence, this collection delivers the goods to satisfy the tastes and curiosities of the hard core fanbase.

Pinhas, Richard - Rhizosphere CD $16.99
Richard Pinhas is one of the most important French electronic space rock musicians. Following five albums with his band Heldon, he released his first solo record in 1977. Backed by Heldon's congenial drummer Francois Auger but no longer bound by the group dynamic, he explores his freshly purchased Moog modular system in search of new sounds. It marked a departure into new realms. "We don't need new technique: everybody has a technique. We need new sounds. Trying to find new sounds is difficult." Finding new sounds is the task Pinhas set for himself on Rhizosphere. On four of it's five tracks, Rhizosphere presents just the 25-year-old Pinhas and his synth alone together, a melding of man and machine that gradually becomes an expansive, outward-bound journey. The only other human being on Rhizosphere is drummer Francois Auger, who accompanies Pinhas on the title track. The escalating arc of it's 18-minute run plays like a moonbound rocket-trip, with pulsing synth and roaming percussion made all the more otherworldly by the decision to filter Auger's cymbals through an AKS modular synthesizer.

Residents - Ghost Of Hope CD $15.99
Residents - I Murdered Mommy CD $19.99
The Residents' soundtrack to a never completed CD ROM game. The 1990s saw The Residents release a series of groundbreaking CD-ROMs. Freak Show was followed up by interactive album Gingerbread Man and then role playing game Bad Day on the Midway. All of these stood head and shoulders above the drivel which increasingly clogged the CD-ROM market and all featured Residential music as an integral part. I Murdered Mommy would have been no exception. Inscape, the company which had released Bad Day, had some reservations with the proposed concept, "an interactive game based on the fantasy life of an emotionally abused 13 year old boy" but as the previous title had sold well they green lighted the project. Unfortunately, shortly after this the aforementioned mountain of inferior titles plus the limitations of the medium (poor capacity) caused the bottom to drop out of the market and Inscape went with it. Musically, all that was left of IMM were some "sketches." In 2004, The Residents took those sketches, fleshed them out and released them in a very limited edition on CD. This re-issue is the first time these music pieces have been made available again. Remastered for this re-issue.

As opposed to an alien alter ego, this time he wrote songs "about a human being, two feet on the ground, heart pumping, with emotions, dreams, and hopes. That seemed to be the direction I really was yearning for." He referred to it as an 'internal artistic rebirth' and collaborated with Red Hot Chili Peppers drummer Chad Smith, Deep Purple bassist Glenn Hughes and producer Mike Fraser. It was recorded in Los Angeles and San Francisco, with Satriani abandoning progressive elements of his last two albums and utilizing a more straightforward, accessible sound he termed "pure rock and soul."

Umphrey's McGee - It's Not Us CD $15.99
It's Not Us is the most vibrant, mature expression of that growing studio prowess yet. The evolution of the songwriting is a reflection of life lived, of confidence gained. Life is relentless, and so deserves a relentless soundtrack. For a band that is influenced by everything, there is clearly no fear to tread anywhere. The musical colors are pushed around with a fluidity that is both niche and accessible. From vulnerable, stripped down acoustic ("You & You Alone") to ferocious, blistering rock ("Dark Brush"), It's Not Us encapsulates a diversity that you rarely find in a single band. It's all over and it's all here. It's quintessential Umphrey's.

Wood, Ron & Ronnie Lane - Mahoney's Last Stand - Original Motion Picture CD $15.99
Zorn, John - Urmuz Epigrams CD $17.99
With The Urmuz Epigrams Zorn returns to his roots, using the recording studio as instrument to create an intensely personal suite of compositions in the style of his legendary File Card compositions and Zoetropes. Dedicated to the visionary Romanian writer Urmuz whose small, scattered body of work predated Dadaism by decades, The Urmuz Epigrams is a suite of surrealistic miniatures more akin to philosophical aphorisms than actual music. The pieces are presented here in two iterations, as a set of "rare 78rpm records" complete with surface scratches and limited dynamic range, and as a modern reconstruction of same with the full blown studio sound presented in all its perplexing glory. Some of the craziest music in the Zorn catalog!

Spirit - Clear SACD $27.99
Limited SACD hybrid edition. Digitally remastered and expanded edition including four bonus tracks. Clear is the third Spirit album, written largely around the time of their work on the soundtrack to the 1968 film Model Shop. Clear has several moments of brilliance that prove what a revolutionary band Spirit were. Coming off of the success of The Family That Plays Together and the hit single, "I Got a Line on You," the group entered the studio with Lou Adler once again in the producer's chair. The album contains many high points, like "Cold Wind," "So Little Time To Fly" and the awesome original release closer "New Dope in Town." "Dark Eyed Woman" opens the album with promise, and it is indeed one of Spirit's hardest-rocking studio performances. Randy California's inspired guitar solo is one of the finest performances of the period. California is indeed the rock equivalent of the cool, progressive jazzman of the '50s. Clear includes four bonus tracks: both sides of the 1984 single, the song "Fuller Brush Man" and a piece entitled "Coral," which was on the Model Shop original movie soundtrack and is present here in an elaborately produced version. This is Spirit, at the height of their powers, with Jay Ferguson still in the fold. Their music is different from anyone else, at times a little Jazz, Rock and Roll, and a fusion of other styles. Hard to believe this was done in the '60s.
