Chris Spedding/Songs without Words ....import CD $16.99

Chris Spedding/Songs without Words ....import CD $16.99

Between 1969 and 1972, Chris Spedding was a rock guitarist whose unique sound, style and musical literacy meant regular employment on the exploding British progressive jazz and jazz-rock scene.  Classic albums from the period by Mike Westbrook, Michael Gibbs, Frank Ricotti, Jack Bruce and Nucleus all feature the Spedding magic. Just prior to being voted 'No.2 Guitarist' behind John McLaughlin in Melody Maker's February 1970 jazz poll, Harvest Records asked Chris to make a jazz-rock album under his own name.  He did, but was unsure if this was the right direction for him.  The album was completed but shelved, at the artist’s request.  Now, 45 years on, re-edited by Chris Spedding and with a period bonus track, Songs without Words can at last take its place as a British jazz-rock classic.  This album, featuring the cream of the period's jazz-rock musicians, has been digitally re-mastered by Ron Geesin. The booklet features extensive liner notes, rare photographs and full recording details.

Howard Riley Trio/Angle + The Day Will Come (The Complete CBS Recordings) ....import CD $16.99

Howard Riley began playing piano at the age of 6 and was playing jazz by his early teens.  His lengthy career has seen him working with Jon Hiseman, John McLaughlin, the London Jazz Composers Orchestra and Keith Tippett, amongst many others.  Since establishing himself on the free jazz and improvised music scene, his work has broadened considerably to cover extensive solo piano, duos and trios.  The two albums on this CD were originally released on CBS Records in 1969 and 1970. They are now being reissued as one disc, in agreement with Howard Riley himself, who has always viewed these two records as being part of one larger, complementary piece.  Now reissued together on one CD for the first time, these recordings come with a CD booklet featuring full recording details, photographs and liner notes from Howard Riley.

Incredible String Band/Live at the Fillmore 1968 ....import CD $16.99

Described as one of the most engaging groups to emerge from the esoteric 1960s, the Incredible String Band was essentially the duo of Mike Heron and Robin Williamson.   Their sound was comprised of haunting Celtic folk melodies augmented by a variety of Middle Eastern and Asian instruments.  During the summer of 1968, the Incredible String Band played a remarkable concert at the legendary Fillmore East venue in New York. The concert was recorded by the venue's sound desk.  This is a 24-bit remaster, approved by the band, taken from that original 1968 concert tape.  The accompanying booklet feature extensive liner notes, including a note from Robin Williamson, recalling his memories of that period.

Martin Carthy/The January Man - Live in Belfast 1978 ....import CD $17.99

As the father figure and guiding spirit of the English folk revival of the 1960s, Martin Carthy was involved in the formation of at least three major English folk-rock bands; Fairport Convention, Steeleye Span and The Albion Band. Paul Simon and Bob Dylan also both cite Carthy as a direct influence. In June 1998 Martin Carthy was appointed an MBE in the Queen's Birthday Honours. He was named Folk Singer of the Year at the BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards in 2002, and again in 2005.  Despite a solo career spanning several decades, 'Untroubled' is the first ever official release of a Martin Carthy live solo album, and is released with Carthy's full approval.  This towering performance, recorded in FM quality, shows an artist who was a legend even then and whose brilliance is merely underlined with the passing of time.  Limited edition digipack includes booklet with extensive liner notes featuring reminiscences from Carthy himself.

Dr Strangely Strange/Kip Of The Serenes (Collectors Edition) ....import CD $18.99

Hux Records is proud to announce the re-release of this classic slice of psychedelic folk.  Based in Dublin, the Strangelies were friends and contemporaries of the Incredible String Band, whose producer Joe Boyd signed them to his Witchseason management and production company in 1969. This first album originally came out in mid 1969 on Island Records. Over the years, Kip has acquired a considerable cult status; in 2007 Record Collector Magazine proclaimed it one of the UK's 'hundred most collectable progressive rock records.'  Previous CD reissues of Kip have been of variable quality, but we have now set matters right with this special Collectors' Edition. Using the tape restoration skills of the Audio Archiving Company, we have re-mastered the album directly from the original stereo mixes and added four previously unheard bonus tracks, taken from the original studio sessions. Belying the age of the tapes, the sound quality is sparkling.  Music historian Adrian Whittaker, responsible for our well-received archive Strangelies release Halcyon Days, has put together a lavish accompanying booklet including a history of the band, new interviews with the band members, Joe Boyd and writer Iain Sinclair, full lyrics to the songs and many previously unseen photographs.

Ron Geesin/Biting The Hand: BBC Radio Broadcasts 1969 - 1975 ....import double CD $25.99

A genuine 'one-off' with a dizzying range of work, Ron Geesin's name will be familiar to many rock fans through his collaboration with Pink Floyd. Geesin worked with the band on their 'Atom Heart Mother' LP, co-writing the side-long title track of that record.   One of Britain's leading avant-garde composers and performers, Geesin began his musical career in 1962, as a member of a jazz band, and is still going strong today, working on new projects into 2008.  This double CD, compiled and re-mastered by Ron Geesin himself, features a comprehensive collection of his BBC radio session recordings, most of which have never been released before now.  The accompanying 12 page CD booklet features extensive liner notes by Ron Geesin, along with his comments and recollections of each session and rare photographs from his own archive.   "Bearing witness to Ron Geesin on stage is an unforgettable experience. He stomps around roaring strange poetry and nearwords. He blows into petrol cans and draws the audience and the events of the evening into him. He plays "amazements" on the piano and a bizarre neo-banjo. He plays on the walls, the floor, chairs, the atmosphere - and the audience. Description is really superfluous." - John Peel    "Nobody will ever know what Geesin is, but this collection offers you, and me, a chance of finding out." - Ron Geesin

Davy Graham/From Monkhouse To Medway 1963-1973 ....import CD $19.99

Davy Graham was one of the most eclectic guitarists of the 1960s and, with his eclectic mixture of folk, blues and jazz, was considered to be the catalyst of the British folk scene.  His legendary 'Angi' single was released in 1962 and would prove hugely influential on a generation of British folk-blues guitar heroes. But Britain was still in the pre-Beatles world of 'Light Entertainment' and Davy Graham, ahead of his time, couldn't get arrested. So closet guitar buff and radio/TV star Bob Monkhouse stepped in and funded a demo acetate which resulted in Davy's first album deal.  Now restored from a sole surviving copy, those tracks are heard here for the first time, along with a folk club set recorded in stereo from Davy's 'wilderness years' in the early '70s. The release of this CD now adds numerous otherwise unrecorded titles to Davy's unique legacy.   The accompanying booklet include extensive liner notes by renowned folk journalist Colin Harper, and an interview with Bob Monkhouse.

Incredible String Band/Across The Airwaves ....import double CD $24.99

Incredible String Band/Across The Airwaves ....import double CD $24.99

The Incredible String Band was arguably one of the most engaging groups to emerge from the esoteric 1960s. Basically the duo of Mike Heron and Robin Williamson, their sound was comprised of haunting Celtic folk melodies augmented by a variety of Middle Eastern and Asian instruments.  In the late 60s, the ISB became major players on the burgeoning underground scene, sharing bills with the likes of Pink Floyd at London’s UFO club and acquiring cult status with the cognoscenti after the 1967 release of their album, ‘5,000 Spirits Or The Layers Of The Onion’. John Peel soon became a big fan and was quick to get them to record sessions for his BBC Radio 1 shows.  The Incredible String Band adopted an adventurous approach to their BBC radio sessions, using them to try out new, non-album material or radically rearrange older songs, encompassing a remarkable variety of instrumentation and genres.  This double CD contains 13 previously unreleased recordings and has been compiled and released with the full co-operation of the band.   The accompanying 24 page booklet includes rare photographs, comprehensive liner notes and a full BBC sessionography, plus an additional note from Mike Heron and lyrics to several of the featured songs.

Incredible String Band/Tricks Of The Senses: Rare And Unreleased Recordings 1966-1972 ....import double CD $24.99

One of the most engaging groups to emerge from the esoteric 1960s was the Incredible String Band. Basically the duo of Mike Heron and Robin Williamson, its sound was comprised of haunting Celtic folk melodies augmented by a variety of Middle Eastern and Asian instruments. Tricks Of The Senses is a double CD compilation of unreleased or rare Incredible String Band material from the Witchseason and Island Records archives, and represents a fascinating alternative history of the band. ISB's Robin Williamson and Mike Heron were fully involved in this project from the start, and were both impressed by the quality of the material that was unearthed.  The opening track here, Leadbelly's 'Relax Your Mind,' is taken from the band's own 1966 rehearsal tape, and is the source of the earliest surviving two-man ISB material. 'Lover Man' (with Danny Thompson on string bass) is an unreleased song from the band's second album, 5,000 Spirits. 'All Too Much For Me' & 'The Iron Stone' are outtakes from the band's Wee Tam LP. The remainder of disc 1 features previously unreleased recordings from a 1968 US radio session. The second CD starts with 'Penwern', an instrumental which was not used for the 1969 Be Glad film soundtrack for which it was originally recorded. 'El Ratto' & 'Long Long Road' are both previously unreleased recordings from the ISB's 1970 song & dance extravaganza, U, which was performed at London's Roundhouse Theatre.  'All Writ Down' is an alternative stereo version, featuring an additional verse. 'Queen Juanita' is a previously unreleased outtake from the band's I Looked Up album. 'Poetry Play # 1' is a previously unreleased 1971 recording. The final two tracks are outtakes from the Earthspan sessions, recorded in 1972. The accompanying 28 page booklet features exhaustive liner notes, including a detailed story about the background to this project. Also featured are several rare photographs and full lyrics to many of the songs.

John Martyn/The Battle Of Medway: July 17th 1973 ....import CD $17.99

For John Martyn, 1973, when this concert was recorded, was a year of serious transition, both musically and in terms of moving once and for all away from the folk club scene and into the college and concert circuit.  'The Battle Of Medway', released with the full approval of John Martyn, captures him in blistering form, on one of his last ever solo acoustic folk club gigs.  Famed for the late-night cool of his '70s studio albums and the explosive live shows of the same era, John Martyn forged a unique path through the accepted forms of folk, jazz and rock, bringing electric power into the folk clubs and soulful balladry into the colleges.  While Live At Leeds, recorded in 1975, has long defined the man's sound during his breakthrough years on the college circuit, little has survived of his path-finding years in the folk clubs - until now.   Recorded in July 1973, in ambient stereo by club organiser Geoff Harden at Medway, Kent, in between the releases of Solid Air and Inside Out, this is the sound of John Martyn - on one of his determinedly last ever folk club gigs - frightening the living daylights out of anyone who came there expecting 'The Wild Rover.'

Matching Mole/On The Radio ....import CD $18.99

Matching Mole/On The Radio

Robert Wyatt formed Matching Mole in 1972, shortly after he left Soft Machine and just before launching his solo career. Matching Mole bore some similarities to his later work with Soft Machine. In fact, Wyatt came up with the name 'Matching Mole' as a subtle pun on the French translation of 'Soft Machine' - 'machine molle.'  Matching Mole released two great albums in 1972, before Wyatt disbanded the group and set out as a solo artist. But it is this Hux compilation which Wyatt now describes as the definitive Matching Mole album.  'On The Radio' is a compilation of rare BBC recordings, including 3 John Peel studio sessions and a live concert. The band includes Dave Sinclair (ex Caravan), Phil Miller (Hatfield & The North and National Health), Bill MacCormick and Dave MacRae.   This special 'digi-pack' format features an original cover photograph by Robert Wyatt, who also compiled the running order. The accompanying 12 page CD booklet features extensive liner notes by Matching Mole bassist, Bill MacCormick, plus rare period photo's and comprehensive recording details.

Pentangle/One More Road & Live 1994 ....import double CD $24.99

Recently honoured for Lifetime Achievement at the BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards, the legendary status of the original Pentangle is beyond question.  Less known, though, are the great albums made by the reconstituted Pentangle between 1984-94.  Built around original members Jacqui McShee and Bert Jansch, with guitarist Peter Kirtley, drummer Gerry Conway, and Nigel Portman Smith on bass, the group created a magical sound all of their own.  This double CD brings together the highlights from this Pentangle line-up; Their final studio album, the epic 'One More Road', with their swansong, 'Live 1994.' These discs capture the band performing old favourites and overlooked gems with a fantastic new energy.  As Bert Jansch recently said of the 'One More Road' album; "It more than holds its own against the classic albums made by the first line up."  Both CDs have been digitally re-mastered and are now reissued together on CD for the first time, with the full agreement of the band.  The accompanying 20 page booklet features extensive liner notes, including interviews with the band, plus an additional note by Jacqui McShee, lyrics to many of the featured tracks and rare band photos.

Shawn Phillips/At The BBC ....import CD $18.99

Shawn Phillips/At The BBC ....import CD $18.99

Shawn Phillips is one of the most fascinating and enigmatic musicians to come out of the 1960s singer/songwriter boom. He remains on the periphery of mainstream rock, despite selling hundreds of thousands of albums and singles since he first came on to the scene.   Once famously described by the late rock impresario Bill Graham as "the best kept secret in the music business," Shawn has collaborated with the good and great - from Stevie Winwood and Eric Clapton, to Donovan, Tim Hardin and Bernie Taupin. He was cast to play the lead in the original production of Jesus Christ Superstar, but had to pull out due to his other music commitments. He has also written soundtracks for and starred in movies.  Phillips is a fascinating and enigmatic musician. His refusal to shape his music - which crosses between folk-rock, jazz, progressive, pop, and classical - to anyone else's expectations has allowed him to hold onto a large and dedicated cult following, without ever achieving the stardom that his talent would merit.  These previously overlooked BBC radio sessions, recorded for John Peel and Bob Harris, reveal Shawn Phillips' breathtaking versatility, from stunning solo acoustic balladry on the '71 session, to full on jazz funk workouts on the '74 session, on which he collaborates with the English band, Quatermass.  This CD, released with the full approval of Shawn Phillips, has been digitally re-mastered by Ron Geesin. The accompanying 16 page full colour booklet features extensive liner notes, including an interview with Shawn, plus several rare photographs.

Pip Pyle's Equip' Out/Instants

Pip Pyle was a key figure in the Canterbury Music scene. In fact, as a founder member of Hatfield And the North and National Health, he deserves mention as one of the greatest progressive rock drummers. In 1994, his band, Equip' Out, performed a live show in Paris which is now released here for the first time. This particular line-up (Pip Pyle, Elton Dean, Patrice Meyer & Paul Roger) only ever did a handful of gigs.

The Silkie/You've Got To Hide Your Love Away ....import CD $19.99

The Silkie/You've Got To Hide Your Love Away ....import CD $19.99

The Silkie are best remembered for their hit cover of the Beatles song 'You've Got To Hide Your Love Away,' which made the U.S. top ten in 1965. The Silkie gave the song a somewhat more pop-folk treatment, complete with male-female harmonies, its prospects were boosted by a Lennon-McCartney production credit. The Beatle connection didn't end there, as they were also managed by Brian Epstein.  The Silkie was a quartet of Hull University students: Mike Ramsden (guitar & vocals), Sylvia Tatler (vocals), Ivor Aylesbury (guitar & vocals) and Kevin Cunningham (bass).  Three of the Beatles were involved in the Silkie's cover version of 'You've Got to Hide Your Love Away.' Paul McCartney contributed vocals and guitar, George Harrison added percussion via guitar taps and tambourine, and John Lennon did most of the producing, although McCartney is sometimes credited as co-producer with Lennon.  As Mike Ramsden later reminisced: 'It was really Paul's arrangement of John's song. The bit at the beginning on guitar is Paul. George Harrison turned up, tapping on the back of the guitar and going "sssh." John was with an engineer in the control room, producing the record. We had six hours with three Beatles and Jane Asher, who was opening the beer. John was so chuffed that he rang Brian Epstein and said, "Listen, Brian, we've just made a No.1." He played the song over the phone and Brian said "Well done." '  This CD reissue of The Silkie's album also includes their singles as bonus tracks. The accompanying booklet features extensive liner notes, photographs and full recording details.

Skid Row/Live And On Song ....import CD $17.99

Skid Row/Live And On Song

Skid Row was formed in Ireland in 1967 by bassist & songwriter Brush Shiels. The band also featured Phil Lynott on vocals, the 17 year old Gary Moore on guitar and Noel Bridgeman on drums.  Phil Lynott left after recording the band's debut single, and went on to form Thin Lizzy. The band continued as a trio, with Gary Moore, Brush Shiels & Noel Bridgeman. Eventually, Gary Moore also left, and went on to become one of rock music's most acclaimed guitarists.  Skid Row recorded two ultra-rare singles in 1969. These were only ever released in Ireland, on the independent 'Song Records' label. Phil Lynott was the vocalist on the A side of that first single. It is his earliest and rarest recording. The B side was sung by Gary Moore, who also handled vocal duties on the A side of the second single.  All 4 sides of both singles are now released here on CD for the first time. Also included on this CD is the group's powerful live show, recorded in London by the BBC in 1971. This recording captured the band at the peak of their improvisational powers as a concert act.  From psychedelic-influenced beginnings, the classic Skid Row sound developed as a combination of breezy country ballads, Cream-like heavy blues, angular King Crimson-ish high-volume prog rock and an overriding fascination in finding a Brubeck/Coltrane influenced, rock-based fusion entirely their own.

The Six album is widely regarded as a great record, but as the critic Duncan Heining says in his liner notes to Soft Stage, this CD is actually even better. This concert was the fifth by this incarnation of Soft Machine, with Karl Jenkins joining Mike Ratledge, Hugh Hopper and John Marshall, adding his considerable skills on woodwinds and keyboards, not to mention his talents as composer. This performance also showcases the exceptional Hopper-Marshall rhythm section. 'Slightly All The Time', from the pre-Fifth days, is almost unrecognizable. The rest of the set is a mixture of compositions, mostly bearing only minor resemblance to the originals, from Fifth and Six

Soft Machine & Heavy Friends/BBC In Concert 1971

This is a live session recorded for the BBC at London's Paris Theatre on March 11th 1971. John Peel introduced the concert as being by "Soft Machine and Heavy Friends". This is a unique recording in that, for this BBC session, the band augmented and fragmented and performed with other great jazz musicians, including Ronnie Scott on tenor sax. The accompanying 12 page colour booklet includes brief notes from Robert Wyatt, Hugh Hopper and Elton Dean, who all recall their own memories of this recording. Also featured in the booklet are further extensive liner notes and band photographs.

Soft Mountain/Soft Mountain

Legendary Soft Machine veterans Elton Dean and Hugh Hopper joined forces in 2003 with wildly creative keyboardist/composer Hoppy Kamiyama and master drummer, Yoshida Tatsuya to create Soft Mountain. Their debut recording is now released here for the first time.   Elton Dean & Hugh Hopper are well known amongst jazz rock fans. In addition to forming half of the 'classic' Soft Machine line-up (with Robert Wyatt & Mike Ratledge) they have also worked with Brotherhood of Breath, Keith Tippett & Long John Baldry's Bluesology (Dean) and Stomu Yamashta, Kevin Ayers & Isotope (Hopper).  Soft Mountain named themselves after Hoppy Kamiyama, whose name translates into 'God Mountain' in English. Hoppy has made about 200 CDs over a nearly 24 year career, so it's hard to say which is the greatest and most influential recording by this musician, who practically invented the modern concept of the keyboardist/composer/producer. Tatsuya Yoshida was without doubt one of the most important drummers on the Japanese scene in the final decades of the 20th century, having spearheaded at least half a dozen of that country's most important groups, including Acid Mothers Temple & The Ruins.  This limited edition digi-pack features a liner note from Hugh Hopper.  Total running time: 58.40.   Recorded 10th August 2003 in Tokyo, Japan.

Bridget St. John was one of the first artists to be signed to John Peel's Dandelion label in 1969.  She recorded 3 albums there before she was signed to Chrysalis Records in 1974. All of those original records have recently been reissued on CD, to wide acclaim.  Throughout the late 1960s and early 1970s, Bridget made many unique recordings for BBC Radio, mostly for John Peel. None of those recordings have ever been released on CD until now.  Compiled by Bridget herself, this double CD features the best of her BBC radio concerts and sessions, including her very first Peel session, recorded in 1968. Several of these songs are released here for the first time.  This double CD set is packaged in a lavish full colour digipack with an accompanying 20 page colour booklet featuring extensive liner notes, an interview with Bridget, plus several rare photographs from Bridget's own archive.  The tracks are a mixture of solo and band recordings, and three songs (disc 2, 14-16) are duets with Kevin Ayers. These CDs have been digitally re-mastered by Ron Geesin (who also produced Bridget's second Dandelion LP in 1971).
