Gentle Giant/Three Piece Suite [Deluxe Edition] ....import CD + Blu-Ray $19.99

Gentle Giant/Three Piece Suite [Deluxe Edition] ....import CD + Blu-Ray $19.99

On September 29th 2017 Gentle Giant will release "Three Piece Suite."   Gentle Giant - Three Piece Suite is a specially curated selection of songs and compositions from the band's first three albums (Gentle Giant, Acquiring the Taste, Three Friends) presented in both 5.1 surround sound and stereo. There are nine tracks from the albums, plus a pre-debut song, remixed by Steven Wilson. The choices were determined by the limited availability of multi-track master tapes from the era. Only a few songs from each album are known to exist as multi-tracks, with the rest presumably lost.  Three Piece Suite will be available as a  two-disc digipak containing 96/24 animated Blu-ray plus CD and a single disc digipak CD.  Gentle Giant's Three Piece Suite includes the songs "Giant," "Nothing At All," and "Why Not" from the first album Giant; "Pantagruel's Nativity," "The House, The Street, The Room" from the second album Acquiring The Taste; "Schooldays," "Peel the Paint," "Mr. Class And Quality," and "Three Friends" from the album Three Friends completes the list of the original recorded material.  The band and Steven Wilson are including a previously commercially unreleased song "Freedom's Child" taken from the first recording sessions with legendary producer Tony Visconti.  The liner notes by Interviewer Anil Prasad include reflections from Gentle Giant's members about the writing and recording sessions.   Steven Wilson and Tony Visconti share their incredible observations about the early days of this unique collection of timeless music from one of progressive rock's most influential bands.  Tony Visconti recounts: "I was a very optimistic young man in 1970 ... I thought music like theirs would save the world from mediocrity. I couldn't wait to sink my teeth in it. I championed their cause by becoming sympathetic to the point where I temporarily joined the band for both albums. I modified their arrangements and pulled off some stunning audio effects that gave their sound more depth and immediacy. The band knew I was on their side. I remember there being a great feeling of camaraderie during the sessions."  Steven Wilson explains: "To create the new mixes, I used Logic as the software and Universal Audio plug-ins, which provide emulations of classic analog outboard effects, channel strips and old mixing desks ... I used these tools to clean things up and bring out some more clarity, detail and definition in some of the instrumental interplay. There was never a question of trying to outdo the original mixes, but offer different perspectives on them."  Tony Visconti continues: "In our own way, we've touched the ears, minds and hearts of thousands of true believers."  The band members, collectively, feel there are still good reasons its fans continue to enjoy Gentle Giant's music and why it continues to be discovered by new generations.  For fans of Gentle Giant Three Piece Suite is a must have. For fans of great musicianship and progressive rock this is an incredible insight into the earliest days of this legendary band.

The material performed is mostly from the 1969-1974 period, and most of it hadn't been performed live since the 1970s, although the songs were rearranged to suit the current line-up. Also included are some pieces from 1995 and onward, alongside new material. The title is derived from a song of the same name that the band has been playing in concert.

Esoteric Recordings are pleased to announce the release of a newly re-mastered & expanded edition of the classic 1970 album by Colosseum "Daughter of Time." Released on the Vertigo label in December 1970, the album was the band's third studio release and also heralded a line-up change within the group, featuring Jon Hiseman (drums), Dave Greenslade (organ & vibes), Dick Heckstall-Smith (saxophones) along with new recruits Dave "Clem" Clempson (guitar, vocals), Mark Clarke (bass) and the distinctive lead vocalist Chris Farlowe. Following on from the success of the album "Valentyne Suite," "Daughter of Time" was another fine album, spending five weeks in UK Top 30 charts. A classic early progressive rock album, "Daughter of Time" includes such classic tracks as 'Three Score and Ten, Amen,' 'Take Me back to Doomsday,' 'The Daughter of Time' and the band's interpretation of the Jack Bruce song 'Theme from an Imaginary Western.'

John Hackett Band/We Are Not Alone [Deluxe Edition] ....import double CD $20.99

Esoteric Antenna is delighted to announce the release of the wonderful new studio album by The John Hackett Band; "We Are Not Alone." Following on from the album "Another Life," prog flute player John Hackett presents an outstanding album by his newly formed band, featuring Nick Fletcher, Jeremy Richardson and Duncan Parsons. With a heady and eclectic mix of rock-solid song-writing, swirling mellotron and at times, free improvisation, the virtuosic flute and guitar performances shine through the memorable compositions. John's brother, Steve Hackett, makes a special guest appearance on harmonica on 'Never Gonna Make a Dime' which tells the true story of the family's brief move to Canada in the fifties. "We Are Not Alone" also includes a bonus disc, "Another Live," recorded at the Classic Rock Society in 2016 featuring live performances of songs from John's previous albums "Checking Out of London" and "Another Life." "We Are Not Alone" is a fine new album from a fine musician and his band.

Bodast/Towards Utopia ....import CD $17.99

Bodast/Towards Utopia ....import CD $17.99

Esoteric Recordings are pleased to announce the release of a newly re-mastered edition of the 1969 recordings by Bodast, the short-lived band formed in late 1968 featuring Steve Howe (lead guitar, acoustic guitar, bass), Dave Curtis (bass, vocals), Bobby Clarke (drums) & Clive Skinner (vocals, acoustic guitar). Originally known as Canto, the trio of Howe, Curtis and Clarke adopted the name Bodast (an abbreviation of their first names) after a few months. Later joined by Clive Skinner, the band recorded a series of songs at Trident studios in London, produced by Steve Howe's former band mate in Tomorrow, Keith West. Sadly, despite being hailed for their live performances, Bodast failed to see any recordings released during their existence. Over four decades on from the sessions, the tracks recorded by Bodast are fascinating, revealing a phase of Steve Howe's career prior to him joining Yes and enjoying global acclaim. The track "Nether Street" featured a riff later re-worked by Steve Howe as the basis of the "Wurm" section of the song "Starship Trooper" recorded by Yes. "Towards Utopia" features the original Keith West produced mixes of the Trident sessions, along with three bonus tracks by Canto recorded for Deep Purple's management company in 1968. The release features an illustrated booklet and an essay.

Esoteric Recordings are pleased to announce the first ever UK individual CD release of a newly re-mastered edition of the 1971 album by legendary musicians John McLaughlin, John Surman, Karl Berger, Stu Martin & Dave Holland. The product of a recording session in New York City in 1970, "Where Fortune Smiles" is one of the milestone albums to be recorded at a time when the divisions between the worlds of jazz and rock were less defined and albums such as Bitches Brew by Miles Davis and the work of Tony Williams' Lifetime pointed a new direction in music. Originally released on Pye Records' "progressive" imprint Dawn Records, Where Fortune Smiles was recorded fresh on the heels of John McLaughlin and Dave Holland's work with Miles Davis, John Surman's work with Mike Westbrook and The Trio (with Stu Martin) - original vinyl copies of the record now command large sums from collectors. This Esoteric Recordings edition has been newly re-mastered from the original Dawn master tapes and features an illustrated booklet which restores the original album artwork and insert and an essay by aficionado Sid Smith.

The Flock/Truth - The Columbia Recordings 1969-1970 ....import double CD $21.99

The Flock/Truth - The Columbia Recordings 1969-1970 ....import double CD $21.99

Esoteric Recordings are pleased to announce the release of a new 2CD anthology celebrating the fine American jazz rock band The Flock. Hailing from Chicago, The Flock was one of the most original groups to emerge on the late 1960s buoyant music scene. Along with their fellow Chicagoans Blood Sweat & Tears and Chicago, The Flock were highly original in their musical approach, successfully fusing jazz, rock, blues and even classical influences. The band recorded three singles in 1966 and 1967 before changing musical direction and recruiting virtuoso electric violinist Jerry Goodman to their ranks. With a line-up of Fred Glickstein (guitar, lead vocals), Jerry Goodman (violin), Jerry Smith (bass), Ron Karpman (drums), Rick Canoff (saxophone), Tom Webb (saxophone) and Frank Posa (trumpet), The Flock came to the attention of manager Aaron Russo, owner of Chicago's famous Kinetic Playground venue. Russo secured the band a contract with Columbia Records for whom The Flock recorded two excellent albums for the label, "The Flock" (1969) and "Dinosaur Swamps" (1970). Despite enthusiastic critical acclaim and patronage of established musicians such as John Mayall (who declared them to be the best band in America in 1969), The Flock sadly failed to fulfill their commercial potential and their classic line-up broke up in 1971, with Jerry Goodman joining The Mahavishnu Orchestra, but they did leave a recorded legacy of fine music. Truth - The Columbia Recordings 1969 - 1970 celebrates the music of this excellent band and features both of their Columbia albums in re-mastered form, along with six rare single tracks previously unissued on CD and six rare non-album session recordings from 1969 & 1970, including a re-recording of their early single What Would You Do If the Sun Died. The anthology features an illustrated booklet that includes a new essay with an exclusive interview with Flock guitarist Fred Glickstein.

Various Artists/Let the Electric Children Play: The Underground Story of Transatlantic Records [Remastered] ....import triple CD $24.99

Esoteric Recordings are proud to announce the release of a new deluxe 3CD which tells the story of the so-called "underground" era of one of Britain's great independent record labels of the 1960s & 1970s, Transatlantic Records. In the heady atmosphere of the late 1960s, the sea change in British popular music spearheaded by the Beatles experimentation on the Sergeant Pepper album and swiftly followed by the likes of Cream, Pink Floyd, Traffic, Family, Procol Harum, Jethro Tull and a host of groups and musicians who followed in their footsteps led to the album being seen as the medium in which "serious" musicians would explore and develop their craft. The apparently disparate genres of blues, jazz, rock, folk and even world music were fused together by many diverse acts all of whom were eager to be regarded as "progressive" in their musical approach. The so-called "underground" audience eagerly consumed this music, which sat alongside the social changes that were also taking place. In the UK the major labels established imprints such as Harvest, Vertigo and Deram to market music to this audience, inspired by the vision of independent labels such as Island Records. Another, smaller British independent label also swiftly tapped in to this new musical movement, Transatlantic Records. This proudly independent imprint, founded in 1961 by Nat Joseph, looked beyond its initial folk, jazz and blues output to sign a distinctly quirky and diverse roster of "underground" acts. Between 1968 and 1976 Transatlantic explored all aspects of the "progressive" and "underground" scenes; from the "heavy" groups such as The Deviants, Jody Grind, Little Free Rock and Stray, to the acts on the fringes of folk and rock such as Pentangle, Mr Fox, Alan Hull, The Humblebums, Gryphon and Carolanne Pegg, to jazz rockers such as Circus and Marsupilami. Featuring over three and a half hours of newly re-mastered music over three CDs, "Let the Electric Children Play" documents the fascinating story of a unique period in the history of one of Britain's most eccentric labels. This deluxe anthology also includes a lavishly illustrated booklet with new essay and artist biographies housed in a clamshell boxed set.

Widowmaker/Running Free: The Jet Recordings 1976-1977 [Remastered] ....import double CD $21.99

Esoteric Recordings are pleased to announce the release of a new 2CD anthology celebrating the British rock band Widowmaker. Formed in 1975 by former Mott the Hoople and Spooky Tooth guitarist Luther Grosvenor, also known as Ariel Bender. The original line-up of the band featured vocalist Steve Ellis (ex-Love Affair & Ellis), guitarist Huw Lloyd-Langton (ex-Hawkwind), Australian bassist Bob Daisley (ex- Chicken Shack) and drummer Paul Nicholls who had previously been a member of Lindisfarne. A few months after they had begun rehearsing at Emerson, Lake & Palmer's Manticore Studios in London, Widowmaker signed to Don Arden's Jet Records label. Their self-titled debut album was released in 1976 and featured guest musicians Bobby Tench and Zoot Money. After touring with Nazareth, they joined Little Feat, The Sensational Alex Harvey Band and Streetwalkers as support to The Who on their "Who Put the Boot In' series of stadium shows in June 1976. Following a US tour opening for the Electric Light Orchestra Steve Ellis left the band and was replaced by vocalist John Butler. This line-up recorded the final Widowmaker album Too late to Cry, released in 1977. Widowmaker disbanded soon after with Bob Daisley joining Rainbow (and subsequently Ozzy Osbourne's Blizzard of Oz and Gary Moore's band) and Huw Lloyd Langton eventually returning to Hawkwind. Running Free celebrates the music of Widowmaker and features both of the band's studio albums in their entirety on CD for the first time. The collection also includes the previously unreleased track 'Talk to Me,' recorded in January 1977. The anthology features an illustrated booklet that includes a new essay with exclusive interviews with Luther Grosvenor, Steve Ellis and Bob Daisley.

Atlantic Bridge/Atlantic Bridge [Remastered & Expanded Edition] ....import CD $19.99

Esoteric Recordings are pleased to announce the first ever UK CD release of a newly re-mastered edition of the 1970 self-titled jazz-rock album by Atlantic Bridge. Born of a time when jazz musicians crossed in to the world of rock music, Atlantic Bridge was a quartet featuring Mike McNaught (piano, electric piano), Daryl Runswick (bass, bass guitar), Jim Philip (flute, soprano sax, tenor sax) & Mike Travis (drums). All four musicians were seasoned players on the London jazz circuit, but sought to expand their musical horizons. Influenced by the experimentation of Miles Davis on his album Bitches Brew and by the work of British musicians such as Keith Tippett, Atlantic Bridge, led by visionary Mike McNaught, took compositions by such artists as The Beatles and Jim Webb and crafted a highly innovative album which also revealed the talents of Daryl Runswick (a respected bass player later to play with Elton John and The Alan Parsons Project among others), Jim Philip and Mike Travis. Originally released on Pye Records' "progressive" imprint Dawn Records, Atlantic Bridge now commands large sums from vinyl collectors. This Esoteric Recordings edition has been newly re-mastered from the original Dawn master tapes and features two bonus tracks taken from a rare maxi single (also released in 1970). The release features an illustrated booklet and an essay featuring exclusive interviews with Daryl Runswick and Jim Philip.

Various Artists/Looking at Pictures in the Sky: The British Psychedelic Sounds of 1968 ....import triple CD $25.99

From Estoeric distributor Cherry Red - It goes without saying that 1968 doesn't have the same kind of cachet as 1967 - a year that, in musical terms, will always be indelibly associated with the Summer of Love, Sgt Pepper and the emergence of psychedelia. But although the major players turned away from the excesses of the previous year in favour of a back-to-basics musical approach, there were arguably a greater number of psychedelic records made in 1968 than during the preceding twelve months. Vital, lysergically-inclined 45s emerged from a whole host of younger groups, with The Factory, Mike Stuart Span, Fleur de Lys, The Fire, The Barrier, Boeing Duveen, Rupert's People and numerous others all releasing singles that have long been widely regarded by psychedelic collectors as genre classics. All these and more are gathered on Looking at the Pictures in the Sky, which provide a fascinating overview of the group scene in Britain (and Ireland!) in 1968, shining a light on unreleased gems, cult classics, choice album cuts, neglected B-sides and alternative versions. As with it's 1967 equivalent Let's Go Down snd Blow Our Minds, the four-hour, 78-track, 3CD anthology Looking at the Pictures in the Sky is housed in a striking clambox that contains a 44 page booklet crammed with biographical information and rare photographs of the featured acts.

Pentangle/The Albums: 1968-1972 ....import 7 CD Box Set $79.99

From Esoteric distributor Cherry Red - When they formed in 1968, Pentangle were hailed as folk's first supergroup, fusing elements of jazz and underground music and comprising the twin guitar/songwriting talents of Bert Jansch and John Renbourn with bassist Danny Thompson, drummer Terry Cox and singer Jacqui McShee.  Between 1968 and 1972, Pentangle issued six albums - five on legendary folk label Transatlantic and a swansong release on Reprise. Their debut, The Pentangle (1968), was hailed as a folk rock classic and charted in the UK at No. 21. Sequel Sweet Child (also 1968) was an ambitious double album coupling live and studio discs. Third LP Basket of Light (1969) was their most commercially successful, peaking at No. 5, fuelled by the success of lead track 'Light Flight.' Cruel Sister (1970) allowed Pentangle to reinterpret traditional folk songs. Reflection (1971), their last Transatlantic LP, was also among their most adventurous. Solomon's Seal (1972) proved to be their last album with the original line-up.  For the first time ever, these albums are available as a deluxe box set to coincide with the 50th anniversary of the band's formation. Each record has been remastered from the best available sources, referencing original tapes and vinyl where relevant. Each album has been expanded with a wealth of bonus material, including choice selections from contemporaneous solo LPs by Bert Jansch and John Renbourn, out-takes and live tracks. Across the package, there are an impressive 22 recordings which are previously unreleased.   Each album is presented in a miniature card sleeve replica of the original vinyl artwork. These are housed in an attractive box set alongside an 88-page book awash with rare images and over 20,000 words of sleeve-notes, which include: a Q&A culled from past interviews by author Mick Houghton with Bert, John and Jacqui; essays about each album by a variety of music journalists (Stuart Penney, Trevor Leeden, Nigel Cross, Colin Irwin, Lois Wilson and Jim Wirth); a lengthy chronology; and track-by-track details.   Pentangle's first three albums and three singles were produced by the legendary Shel Talmy (The Who, The Kinks, etc.) while Peter Blake designed the sleeve for Sweet Child (one of only three such commissions in the '60s). The band also enjoyed popularity in America and toured there. Alongside Fairport Convention and the Incredible String Band, Pentangle define folk's flowering in the late 60s, melding jazz, rock, traditional folk and other styles.

Pere Ubu/20 Years in a Montana Missile Silo ....import CD $19.99

From Esoteric distributor Cherry Red - Fronted as ever by David Thomas, Pere Ubu unveil their new album, 20 Years in a Montana Missile Silo, which opens the doors of the avant-garage to reveal the hardworking mechanics hammering away at the fundamentals of blue-collar rock. A three-guitar revision sees Keith Moline, Gary Siperko and Kristof Hahn (The Swans) expand the established orchestra of analog and digital synths (Wheeler, Gagarin), clarinet (Boon), drums (Mehlman) and Thomas' unique vocals. 20 Years in a Montana Missile Silo follows their 2015 release Carnival of Souls, which was widely praised by the media and used by cult series 'American Horror Story' in Season 4. David Thomas: "The new album is The James Gang teaming up with Tangerine Dream. The Chinese Whispers methodology we worked on the last two albums has been replaced by the Dark Room. Put musicians in a lightless room and by feeling one small section of an unknown object have them figure what it must be." The album was recorded and mixed at Suma, Painesville Ohio. Engineer Paul Hamann, and his father before him, have been part of almost every Pere Ubu album since 1976. Pere Ubu will be on tour with the new album later this year in the USA, with a full European tour and further USA dates in 2018.

Various Artists/One Way Glass: Dancefloor Prog, Brit Jazz & Funky Folk 1968-1975 ....import triple CD $24.99

From Esoteric distributor Cherry Red - One Way Glass is a very different kind of RPM compilation. Instead of the usual cross-section of Sixties collectables, this unique 3-CD set takes a fresh look at British music from the late '60s through to the mid '70s, with an eye on overlooked dance floor-friendly finds. The rhythmic backbone of One Way Glass lies in progressive rock outfits who - every so often - would emulate their jazz heroes and record funky sides tucked away on albums or B-sides. Many of these tracks (Jonesy, Hardin & York) have been known to collectors of Funky Breaks for years. Includes artists such as Colosseum, Second Hand, Paladin, Fat Mattress, Gravy Train, The Web, Pentangle, Jonesy, Edwards Hand, Bond & Brown, Crazy World Of Arthur Brown, Jody Grind, Juicy Lucy, Burnin Red Ivanhoe, Atomic Rooster, Soft Machine, Audience and many more.

Zodiac/Cosmic Sounds ....import CD $15.99

cosmic.jpg (25107 bytes)

From Esoteric distributor Cherry Red - A classic 1967 Elektra edition, conceived by label head Jac Holzman, who claimed that the success of the Doors was a primary inspiration for the project, the Zodiac's Cosmic Sounds is a concept piece based on the twelve signs of the Chaldean astronomical zodiac. It combines the music of electronics pioneer Mort Garson, performed on early moog synthesiser by Paul Beaver, and the words of Jacques Wilson, which would be delivered in Morrison-esque style by the Iranian-born folk musician, Cyrus Faryar, a man dubbed by Holzman "the Persian minstrel of Barham Boulevard." One of the earliest psychedelic / progressive concept albums, Cosmic Sounds is performed by members of the Wrecking Crew, the loosely affiliated assembly of West Coast musicians, who during the 1960s worked extensively with Brian Wilson, Phil Spector, the Monkees, Simon & Garfunkel; Carol Kaye: bass guitar; Hal Blaine: drums; Bud Shank: flute; Mike Melvoin: keyboards, Emil Richards: exotic percussion. Technicians of the highest pedigree. The producer on the Zodiac sessions was Alex Hassilev, a former member of the Limeliters vocal group. On one level, Cosmic Sounds is a psychedelic exploitation novelty album but there's a precocious quality, an understanding of the innate playfulness of psychedelia that places it alongside a handful of such hallucinogenic enterprises of the era as Mass in F Minor, I Love You Alice B. Toklas, and The L.S. Bumble Bee. Here, for the first time we hear moog on a rock album and, as observed by one critic, 'fuzz guitar straight out of a late '60s commercial for the ultimate airline for swingers.' The mood is enhanced by Abe Gurvin's bold period graphics and comes complete with the legend "Must be played in the dark."

From Esoteric distributor Cherry Red - 50 track 4 CD clam shell box set rounding up guitar supremo Chris Spedding's time with RAK Records between 1975-1980.

Disc 1 is his self-titled debut for RAK which featured the aforesaid 'Motor Bikin" plus the 'Guitar Jamboree,' 'Jump in My Car' and 'New Girl in the Neighbourhood' singles and was produced by Mickie Most. The second CD contains the "Hurt" album from 1977, produced by Chris Thomas, and which features the 'Get Outa My Pagoda' and 'Silver Bullet' singles. Pretender Chrissie Hynde guests on backing vocals whilst seminal session players Herbie Flowers, Clem Cattini and Ray Cooper provide the musical backing. "Guitar Graffiti" is disc 3, self-produced and featuring the 'Video Life,' 'Bored Bored' and 'Gunfight' singles (the latter as a bonus track). The final disc is the "I'm Not Like Everybody Else" album from 1980, once again produced by Mickie Most and including the single 'The Crying Game.' The booklet features detailed liner notes by '70s expert Phil Hendricks and comes with pictures of all the relevant singles. Each of the CDs comes in a card wallet depicting the original LP artwork. As well as being the "go to guy" for bands as diverse as Roxy Music, the Sex Pistols and the Wombles, Chris leads the reformed Sharks who also feature Sex Pistols drummer Paul Cook and original Sharks vocalist Snips who contributed co-writes on many of the tracks on this box set.

Rick Derringer/Joy Ride: Solo Albums 1973-1980 ....import 4 CD Box Set $21.99

From Esoteric distributor Cherry Red - Originally finding fame with The McCoys and their hit, 'Hang on Sloopy,' Rick Derringer worked with both Johnny and Edgar Winter, as well as Steely Dan, before going solo in 1973 for "All American Boy." Co-produced with Bill Szymczyk, who would later produce the Eagles, "All American Boy" features guest appearances from Joe Walsh, Suzi Quatro and Edgar Winter, and features his best known hit, 'Rock And Roll, Hoochie Koo.' The album also features 'Hold,' a song co-written with a then relatively unknown Patti Smith. The bonus tracks include mono single versions of 'Rock 'n' Roll, Hoochie Koo' and 'Teenage Love Affair.' Produced by Rick himself, "Spring Fever" followed in 1975, and includes a revisit to the aforementioned 'Hang On Sloopy,' as well as the Rufus Thomas classic, 'Walkin' the Dog.'   The album includes guest appearances from Chick Corea on Moog, New York Doll David Johansen on electric harmonica, as well as both Johnny and Edgar Winter. Mono single versions of 'Hang on Sloopy' and 'Don't Ever Say Goodbye' are included as bonus tracks. Forsaking a strictly solo career to form the hard rocking "Derringer" band from 1976 -1978 (available as "The Complete Blue Sky Albums 1976-1978: 5CD Box Set"), Rick returned to recording solo for "Guitars And Women" in 1979, co-produced by Todd Rundgren. Featuring drummer Myron Grombacher and guitarist Neil Geraldo, both from Pat Benatar's band, the songs range from pure power pop, not surprising considering Todd Rundgren's involvement, to near heavy metal with 'It Must Be Love' and 'Need A Little Girl (Just Like You),' written by Cheap Trick's Rick Nielsen. Rick saw in the 1980s with "Face To Face," which completes this four CD set. Forming a strong writing partnership with bassists Donald Kisselbach, the album includes a cover of Neil Young's classic 'My My, Hey Hey (Out Of The Blue),' and now includes a mono version 'Let the Music Play.' Presented in a "clamshell" style box, each album is presented in it's own card wallet miniaturizing the original LP jacket, plus a 16 page booklet featuring liner notes from Classic Rock and Rock Candy magazine's Malcolm Dome.

Klaus Doldinger & Georgio Moroder/The Neverending Story O.S.T. [Expanded Collector's Edition] ....import CD $21.99

From Esoteric distributor Cherry Red - Re-issued on CD for the first time in the UK, this is the soundtrack album to accompany the unforgettable 1984 classic adventure fantasy film "The NeverEnding Story." An atmospheric electronic soundtrack with tracks composed by leading German jazz composer Klaus Doldinger (famed as the leader of the band Passport) and electronic disco maestro Giorgio Moroder. This release also includes all the officially released remixes of the title track as sung by '80s heartthrob Limahl (ex-Kajagoogoo) and the extended version of Giorgio Moroder's 'Ivory Tower' that originally appeared as the b-side on Limahl's 'The NeverEnding Story' single. This single was, itself, an international smash hit reaching No.4 in the UK and Irish Charts, No.2 in Germany, Austria and Italy and No.1 in Sweden and Norway. On the "The NeverEnding Story" soundtrack album, as well as the hit title track, four other titles were Moroder's work; 'Swamps of Sadness,' 'Ivory Tower,' 'Ruined Landscape' and 'Sleepy Dragon.' These tracks all combine an upbeat 1980s melodic synth sensibility with serene and layered soundscapes that evoke the mysteries and myths inherent to the film's fantasy narrative. These Moroder compositions only formed part of the film's soundtrack in its English language version and this is the soundtrack album to the English Language version of the film. Even so, the majority of the music is by Klaus Doldinger and he had previous stellar form in soundtrack composition through his contribution to one of the most famous German films of all time, the 1981 German U-boat movie Das Boot. This limited edition black vinyl effect CD release is packaged in a miniature cardboard LP style sleeve with an exclusive six page colour insert.

Marian Segal & Jade/Fly On Strangewings: Anthology ....import triple CD $27.99

From Esoteric distributor Cherry Red - In the pantheon of rare folk rock albums from the genre's golden era of the early Seventies, Fly on Strangewings by Jade is a bona fide classic. Largely ignored on its release on DJM in 1970, the album is now widely acclaimed, which has led collectors and connoisseurs to consider Jade's main singer and songwriter, Marian Segal, as a much-overlooked talent. Fly on Strangewings is now treated to a deluxe 3-CD edition which finally tells the full story of Marian Segal's musical career. Compiled and annotated with Marian's involvement, this new package offers a second disc of early recordings of Marian with fellow Jade member Dave Waite, while disc three brings the story more up-to-date with solo and Marian Segal Band recordings. Disc One re-presents the classic Fly on Strangewings album with seven contemporaneous bonus tracks, two of which are previously unissued. Before becoming Jade, Dave Waite and Marian (or Marianne) Segal were a duo, playing the university circuit and in London clubs at the height of the Swinging London era. Their music was a fusion of British and American folk, but already contained many original elements, including superlative vocals, in the vein of Sandy Denny and The Strawbs. This period is remembered on disc two, recordings which have been out of print for a decade. Four tracks are previously unissued. Disc three includes two historic mid '70s recordings with Jeff Wayne (of War of The Worlds fame). The albums include a host of session talent from the 1970s including Dave Mattacks, Herbie Flowers, Clem Cattini, Pete Sears, John Wetton, Chris Spedding and Terry Cox as well as sweeping string arrangements by Phil Dennys (Rodriguez).

Colosseum/Valentyne Suite + The Grass Is Greener [Remastered & Expanded Edition] ....import double CD $21.99

Esoteric Recordings are pleased to announce the release of a newly re- mastered and expanded edition of the classic 1969 album by Colosseum, "Valentyne Suite."   Originally released in November 1969 housed in a striking sleeve designed by Marcus Keef, "Valentyne Suite" was the first release on the progressive imprint Vertigo and spent nine weeks on the UK album chart, peaking at number 15. The album featured the "classic" Colosseum line-up of Jon Hiseman (drums), Dave Greenslade (organ & vibes), Dick Heckstall-Smith (saxophones), James Litherland (guitar, vocals) & Tony Reeves (bass).  "Valentyne Suite" is arguably the finest album by the band, featuring such outstanding tracks as 'The Kettle' (with a distinctive riff later sampled by Fatboy Slim), 'Elegy' and 'The Machine Demands a Sacrifice' (with lyrics by Pete Brown). However the album's focal point was the three part 'Valentyne Suite' which earned the band critical praise and is now regarded as a milestone in early progressive rock.   This newly re-mastered and expanded reissue includes a bonus track of 'Tell Me Now' (recorded at Lansdowne studios in April 1969) and a bonus remastered CD of the US and Canadian album "The Grass Is Greener," released on the Dunhill label in 1970. The album featured some material featured on "Valentyne Suite," albeit remixed and featuring new member Dave "Clem" Clempson (guitar, vocals), who replaced James Litherland in the group. The album also featured a series of songs unreleased in the UK such as 'Jumping Off the Sun,' 'Lost Angeles,' 'Rope Ladder to the Moon' (written by Jack Bruce & Pete Brown), and a version of Ravel's 'Bolero.'  "Valentyne Suite" remains one of the band's seminal releases, a fine combination of rock, jazz and blues.  The Esoteric Recordings edition also features a booklet that fully restores the original album artwork of both "Valentyne Suite" and "The Grass is Greener" and features a new essay.

Esoteric Recordings are pleased to announce the release of a newly re-mastered & expanded edition of the classic debut album by Colosseum "Those Who Are About to Die Salute You."  Colosseum came together in 1968, the brainchild of virtuoso drummer Jon Hiseman and saxophonist Dick Heckstall-Smith (who had played together in the Graham Bond Organisation & John Mayall's Bluesbreakers). Teaming with bass guitarist Tony Reeves and keyboard player Dave Greenslade, the line- up of the band was completed with the recruitment of guitarist and vocalist James Litherland.  Recorded in the winter of 1968, "Those Who Are About to Die Salute You" was a stunning debut album and was one of the first successful attempts to fuse jazz, blues and rock. Featuring such classic tracks as 'Walking in the Park,' 'Beware the Ides of March,' 'Those About to Die' and 'The Road She Walked Before,' "Those Who Are About to Die Salute You" reached number 15 on the UK album chart and remains a seminal album in the development of what would be known as progressive rock.  This Esoteric Recordings release is newly remastered and includes three bonus tracks recorded at Pye studios in London in November 1968. The release fully restores the original album artwork and features an illustrated booklet with new essay.

Various Artists/Noise Reduction System - Formative European Electronica 1974-1984 ....import 4 CD Box Set $35.99

From Esoteric distributor Cherry Red, the sequel to last year's critically acclaimed, strong selling 'Close to the Noise Floor.'  Journey into the origins of electronica in Europe - from early techno and electro to synth-pop, industrial, ambient and noise experiments.  Includes artists from Germany, France, Netherlands, Italy, Spain, Austria, Switzerland, Belgium, Portugal, Russia, Finland, Sweden, Norway, Denmark, Romania, Slovenia, Latvia, Yugoslavia and Greece.  62 tracks across four CDs in a 52pp hard-back book format. Over 9,000 words of artists' sleevenotes and introductory essay by Dave Henderson (Sounds/Wild Planet/MOJO).  From figureheads (Cluster, DAF, Yello, Klaus Schulze, Vangelis, Front 242) to underground outsiders.  Part primitive rave, part synthesiser excess, part history lesson!  A year in the making, Noise Reduction System reaches out into the European mainland, taking in tracks from key figures on the electronica cassette label underground alongside early releases by ground-breaking innovators.  Enthralled by the mysterious synthesiser and inspired by the DIY ethos of punk, a quiet revolution took place across Europe in the late 1970s and early 1980s. From Norway to Greece, the microchip and the affordable synthesiser inspired artists for whom guitars, drums and bass had become old hat, and in home studios and art spaces across the continent electronic musicians began to stretch the boundaries of sonic experimentation. Some wanted to dance, some to relax and others to confuse and confront - all are represented here.  Noise Reduction System explores every corner of this chapter in our musical history via over four hours of futurist, modern and sometimes challenging music. And who better to tell this story than the artists themselves - Noise Reduction System features sleevenotes from artists and their biographers, unseen photographs and an introductory essay by Sounds and Wild Planet legend Dave Henderson.

The music within the set was evocative and beautifully revealed a different side of Rick's musical nature.   The trilogy was prepared for a German record company that quickly ceased operations, making original copies hard to find. This welcome reissue is presented as a three disc digipack and has been newly remastered. The set includes a booklet with a new essay.

Esoteric Recordings' imprint Cocteau Discs, dedicated to the work of Bill Nelson, are proud to announce the release of a deluxe two disc digi pack limited edition of the classic collection "Chance Encounters in the Garden of Lights."  Originally issued on Bill's Cocteau label in 1987, the double set featured two distinct works; "The Angel at the Western Window" and "The Book of Inward Conversation." In his note for the original release Bill Nelson declared; "The music presented on these two albums marks the consolidation of several years of musical and philosophical practice. Almost every piece was conceived during moments of intense stillness or 'magical vacuity.' Of all the music I have made, this is, perhaps, the most personal and yet the least demonstrative."  "Chance Encounters in the Garden of Lights" has now become a highly regarded collection of beautifully evocative ambient music in the prolific discography of Bill Nelson. Long out of print, this Cocteau Discs re-mastered limited edition presents this wonderful double album once again, restoring the original artwork in the collection in a deluxe digipack set.  It also features 21 bonus tracks drawn from the 1988 CD edition and a rare limited edition EP included with the very first LP pressing of the double album.

The album saw Tim return to his purely instrumental roots, cited by some as a modern equivalent of his classic "Crystal Machine" album. Recorded once again at his Windmill studio, the album featured wonderfully evocative music and guest appearances by Christian Boule (Glissando Guitar) and Konan Mevel (Catalan Bagpipes, Flute).  Unavailable for many years (and highly sought after by collectors), "Caldea Music II" has been newly re-mastered and features a booklet with a new essay and fully restores the original album artwork.

Esoteric Recordings are proud to announce the release of a newly re-mastered and expanded edition of the classic gold selling 1976 album by Barclay James Harvest, "Octoberon." Originally released at the end of October 1976, the album was a big selling release for the band achieving Silver disc status in the UK and Gold in Germany, their first breakthrough album in that territory.  The album struck a chord with the record buying public thanks to tracks such as 'The World Goes On,' 'Suicide?,' the epic 'Ra' and 'Rock n' Roll Star' and its popularity continues to endure.  This Deluxe edition includes two CDs and a DVD, and features a new re-master of the original album mix, along with stunning brand new stereo and 5.1 surround mix of the album.

Clear Blue Sky/Clear Blue Sky [Remastered Edition] ....import CD $18.99

Esoteric Recordings are pleased to announce the release of a newly re-mastered & fully restored edition of the classic self- titled album by progressive power trio Clear Blue Sky, originally released on the Vertigo label in 1970.  Clear Blue Sky came together in the late 1960s in Acton, West London. Comprising John Simms (guitar, vocals), Ken White (drums) & Mark Sheather (bass), the band came to the attention of musician & producer Patrick Campbell-Lyons (of the UK band Nirvana) in 1970. In a role as A&R man for Philips' "progressive" label, Vertigo, he signed the trio to the label and produced their self-titled album the same year.  "Clear Blue Sky" is now a classic of the era, a fine example of muscular progressive rock that belied the fact that the trio were all eighteen years old when the album was recorded. This Esoteric Recordings edition presents the album in its entirety on CD for the first time (as all previous editions omitted the final part of the track 'Birdcatcher' for reasons unknown).   The release features an illustrated booklet, previously unseen photographs (courtesy of John Simms), an essay and interviews with John Simms and Patrick Campbell-Lyons and fully restores the albums original artwork.

Second Hand/Death May Be Your Santa Claus ....import CD $18.99

Esoteric Recordings are pleased to announce the release of a newly re-mastered edition of the classic 1971 album by Second Hand, "Death May Be Your Santa Claus." Second Hand was one of the most original British progressive rock bands to emerge in the late 1960s, albeit a group for whom commercial success was elusive. First coming to prominence in 1968 with the album "Reality," Second Hand were unfairly overlooked thanks to record label intransigence and a near fatal line-up change which occurred soon after their debut was released. By the early 1970s the band had earned a cult following in the UK and Europe, and guided by their producer and mentor Vic Keary, they recorded their second album at Chalk Farm studios in 1971 with a line-up of Ken Elliott (organ, mellotron, piano, vocals), Rob Elliott (lead vocals), George Hart (bass, violin, vocals) and Kieran O'Connor (drums). Death May Be Your Santa Claus was the result of limited studio time, but intense creativity, a truly stunning example of progressive / psychedelic rock worthy of anything recorded at that time by Arthur Brown, Hawkwind or even Van Der Graaf Generator. Despite such excellent quality, the album failed to sell in large quantities due to the limited distribution and resources of the Mushroom label. Now highly acclaimed and with original LP copies rarely surfacing or changing hands for high sums among collectors, this Esoteric Recordings edition is most welcome. The release features three bonus tracks, a booklet with essay and exclusive interviews with Ken Elliott & Vic Keary and fully restores the album's original artwork.

Carolanne Pegg/Carolanne Pegg [Remastered Edition] ....import CD $18.99

Carolanne Pegg/Carolanne Pegg [Remastered Edition] ....import CD $18.99

Esoteric Recordings are pleased to announce the release of a newly re-mastered edition of the classic self-titled album by vocalist and violinist Carolanne Pegg, originally released on the Transatlantic label in 1973.  Carolanne Pegg first came to attention as a member of the progressive folk-rock group Mr. Fox, who recorded two acclaimed albums for Transatlantic Records. A highly versatile fiddle player, she ventured forth as a solo artist in 1973, recording one of the most original folk influenced albums of the era, a fine, sometimes dark, example of acid tinged progressive folk rock. Recorded at Rockfield studios, "Carolanne Pegg" featured guest musicians such as Albert Lee (guitar), Dave Peacock (bass) - later of Chas & Dave, Alan Eden (drums) & Michael Lavelle (cello). In addition to the fiddle, Carolanne also played harmonium & guitar, but arguably the high point of her talents was her unique and evocative vocal style.   Featuring stand out pieces such as 'A Witch's Guide to the Underground,' the epic 'Fair Fortune's Star,' 'Man of War' and 'Winter People,' the album is a truly original work. Now highly acclaimed and with original LP copies changing hands for high sums among collectors, this Esoteric Recordings edition (which has been re-mastered from the original master tapes) is most welcome.  The release features a booklet with essay and an exclusive interview with Carolanne Pegg and fully restores the album's original artwork.

Principal Edwards Magic Theatre/The Works 1969-1971 ....import 3 CD Box Set $23.99

From Esoteric distributor Cherry Red, few groups epitomised the spirit of the late 1960s and early 1970s like Principal Edwards Magic Theatre. A collective of musicians, dancers, poets and sound and lighting engineers, based around the music of Root Cartwright, the group produced one of rock's first forays into multi-media presentation and found themselves championed by, and recording for, the great John Peel.  This set brings together both albums recorded for Dandelion Records - Soundtrack and The Asmoto Running Band - plus five recently unearthed BBC session tracks, unreleased demos and a fantastic live recording made at London's Hampstead Theatre in September 1971. Together, those unreleased recordings shed new light on this most intriguing of groups, and point towards the direction a third Principal Edwards Magic Theatre album might have taken.   Recent years have seen a revival of interest in PEMT, including lengthy pieces in both Record Collector and Shindig! magazines. Their musical eclecticism, blending rock, folk and classical elements with wit and invention, warrant the consideration of all serious aficionados of such things.

Various Artists/Spaced Out: The Story of Mushroom Records ....import double CD $21.99

Various Artists/Spaced Out: The Story of Mushroom Records ....import double CD $21.99

From Esoteric distributor Cherry Red, Mushroom Records was founded in London's Chalk Farm district in 1970 by producer Vic Keary, an experienced industry veteran who'd spent most of the 1960s working as Maximum Sound Productions.  Over the course of three years, Mushroom issued a dizzying variety of records, embracing a broad range of music styles from prog rock (Second Hand, Chillum) to singer-songwriters (Simon Finn, Andreas Thomopoulos), traditional folk (Callinan-Flynn, The Liverpool Fishermen), Indian music (Pandit Kanwar Sain Trikha, Nitai Dasgupta), avant garde jazz (Lol Coxhill) and world music (Les Flambeaux). And in Magic Carpet, Mushroom hosted a group who reflected most of the above genres on one album.  Spaced Out is the first-ever compilation to tell the story of Mushroom from its roots in the psychedelic era and its evolution across the early 1970s. With a foreword and involvement from label boss Vic Keary, this double-CD set reveals how Mushroom epitomized the excitement and diversity of the progressive era.   While Disc 1 offers a cross-section of Mushroom's eclectic output, the second CD dips back into Mushroom's pre-history with an exhaustive mix of music overseen by Maximum Productions. From swinging London tunes by Tuesday's Children to mod classics from The Attraction, psychedelia from future Mushroom act Second Hand, as well as Felius Andromeda and Denis Couldry, funky soul from Mel Turner, several femme pop rarities (Angelina, The New Faces, The Carolines) and post-Mushroom curios from the likes of Andromeda, this is the ultimate tribute to this cult British label.  Artwork comes courtesy of noted designer Phil Smee, whose impressive collection of Mushroom Records ephemera is reproduced in the booklet. And the sleeve-notes by Grapefruit's own David Wells finally tell the story of this hitherto undocumented chapter from the underground scene.

Eric Stewart & 10cc/Anthology [Deluxe Edition] ....import double CD $19.99

Eric Stewart & 10cc/Anthology [Deluxe Edition] ....import double CD $19.99

From Esoteric distributor Cherry Red, Eric Stewart is most known for his tenure with the Mindbenders in the 1960s, and 10cc from 1972 to 1995.  In 1968, he became a co-owner of Strawberry Studios in Stockport, where he developed skills as a recording engineer and record producer. His involvement in Strawberry was instrumental in the eventual formation of 10cc.  Stewart has collaborated with Paul McCartney on three of his albums recorded between 1982 and 1986. He has also recorded three solo albums and released Viva La Difference in 2009.  This 2-CD compilation brings together tracks from all his solo albums and some tracks from his period in 10cc for the first time. Compiled and co-mastered by Eric, these two discs showcase the talents of one of the UK's best producers and writers. Some of these tracks are available on CD for the first time.   The set contains a new essay on the albums by Mojo's Daryl Easlea who has spoken at length to Eric about these records. Eric has just released his autobiography.

Miles Davis/The Cinema of Miles Davis ....import CD $15.99

Miles Davis/The Cinema of Miles Davis ....import CD $15.99

From Esoteric distributor Cherry Red, The Cinema of Miles Davis showcases superior examples of the use of the great jazz trumpeter's music in film. This edition includes his first complete score, sultry and improvised, for Elevator to the Gallows - Louis Malle's directorial debut starring the eternal Jeanne Moreau - which came in late 1957, a decisive time for Miles; marking the ending of his hard-bop period and anticipating the modal phase that would culminate in A Kind of Blue.  With Parker and Dizzy Gillespie and Monk, Davis' music was central to the aesthetic of the Beat Generation so it is unsurprising to find it featured in documentaries on the life and work of both Jack Kerouac and Lenny Bruce. These iconic men of words considered their art to be a form of jazz with the latter referring to his voice as his "Horn."  During the nineties, the Spanish director Pedro Almodo'var deployed powerful and ornate Gil Evans compositions, performed by Miles and inspired by flamenco, in High Heels and Flower of My Secret. Elsewhere, the incomparable Blue in Green appears in Sally Potter's passionate, Cold War meets the Sexual Revolution drama, Ginger & Rosa, while Miles' reading of the Eden Ahbez masterpiece Nature Boy, is heard under Mediterranean skies in Anthony Minghella's interpretation of Patricia Highsmith's The Talented Mr. Ripley.

Eric Gale/Eric Gale - The Definitive Collection ....import double CD $19.99

From Esoteric distributor Cherry Red, this Definitive double CD Collection is the first- time Eric Gale's CTI, Columbia & Warner Brothers repertoire has compiled together on one package.  Eric Gale has put his stamp on over 500 recordings, working with a who's who of Pop, Soul & Jazz from Jimi Hendrix to Aretha Franklin.  Eric Gale recorded eleven solo albums, and was the pivotal player in the jazz funk super group Stuff, two tracks of which are featured on this package.  This collection includes four tracks from his only CTI Records album "Forecast" which featured jazz heavyweights Bob James on piano, Idris Muhammad on drums & Hubert Laws on flute.   After the CTI album Eric signed with Columbia and released two of his greatest albums "Ginseng Woman" and "Multiplication." 'Sara Smile,' the Hall & Oates classic is given the Gale treatment on the "Ginseng Woman" album and creates his own reggae influenced jazz classic.  After leaving Columbia Eric signed with Warner Brothers and released the albums "Blue Horizon" and "Island Breeze" and tracks from those albums are featured on this package.  Also check out Lois Wilson's sleeve-notes, which gives you a great insight to the guitar legend that is Eric Gale.

Various Artists/Night Comes Down: 60 British Mod R&B Freakbeat & Swinging London Nuggets ....import triple CD $23.99

From Esoteric distributor Cherry Red, Night Comes Down continues RPM's ongoing pedigree in creating bespoke Sixties compilations of rare British music aimed at discerning collectors.  This three CD box set follows previous collections Looking Back (2011) and Keep Lookin' (2014), which ran the gamut of musical styles which emanated from the UK, diverse and yet united in their dancefloor appeal, from the discotheques of the day to nouveau Mod clubs in the 21st century.  Many tracks make their official debut on CD, including rarities by The Gnomes Of Zurich, Kevin 'King' Lear, Dominic Grant, The Shadrocks, The Reaction, Al Saxon, The Hammers, etc. In addition, 'Cypress' by The Truth is a previously unissued variant of Donovan's 'Hey Gyp.'  Familiar names (The Spencer Davis Group, Laurel Aitken, The Moody Blues, Arthur Brown) are joined by cult favourites (John's Children, Mickey Finn, The Bo Street Runners) and relative unknowns (Five's Company, The Second Thoughts).  Across the three CDs, Night Comes Down charts the development of Beat music in its various guises, from the gutsy yet jazzy R&B which opens Disc 1 through to horn-laden Brit soul (Norma Lee, The Brothers Grimm), fuzz-laden freakbeat (Favourite Sons, The Tomcats, The In Crowd), femme pop (Twiggy, Twinkle), and groovy loungecore (courtesy of Mark Wirtz and Les Reed's British Lion Orchestra).   Disc 3 reflects the influence of psychedelia, as swinging London became multi-coloured, with assorted treats from The Alan Bown, The Mike Stuart Span and The Spectrum, with some unlikely mod-ish discoveries by "hairy" bands such as The Deviants and Fat Mattress.  Anyone who tried to purchase every 45 captured on Night Comes Down would have to set aside several thousand pounds!  The deluxe clamshell package includes a weighty booklet full of illustrations, with a 12,000 word sleeve-note comprising a detailed summary of all 87 tracks on offer.

Ralph McTell/All Things Change - The Transatlantic Anthology 1967-1970 ....import double CD $22.99

From Esoteric distributor Cherry Red, one of the most accomplished and enduring British singer/songwriters to emerge from the 1960s club circuit, the young Ralph McTell signed his first publishing deal with Essex Music, who then brokered a recording contract with Nat Joseph's folk-oriented Transatlantic label in the summer of 1967.  Over a three year period, McTell cut a trio of albums for the label before assembling a fourth and final set, Ralph McTell Revisited, that consisted of re-recorded or re-mixed material, with the release initially being conceived as a story-thus-far introduction for the American market.  A double CD anthology featuring every track that McTell cut for Transatlantic, All Things Change chronicles an extremely productive period of his career that saw him record much of his finest, most vital work with the aid of rookie producer Gus Dudgeon, arrangers Tony Visconti and Mike Vickers and musicians ranging from legendary session drummer Clem Cattini to C.O.B. mainman Clive Palmer.  Featuring a 16-page booklet and a new essay on McTell's early career, All Things Change includes the original, superior version of the timeless classic 'Streets Of London,' a previously-unissued, orchestra-free recording of 'Eight Frames A Second,' the rare non-LP single 'Summer Come Along' and the first-ever CD release of the Revisited album.

Matt McGinn/The Road to Aldermaston - Complete Transatlantic Recordings 1966-1969 ....import double CD $22.99

From Esoteric distributor Cherry Red, Although he died forty years ago, the reputation of Matt McGinn endures and even expands. Having left behind a dazzling legacy of more than five hundred songs, the life's work of the man dubbed "Scotland's Woody Guthrie" by Tom Paxton was commemorated in 2004 with a concert that was staged in New York on Broadway, where Pete Seeger suggested that "...if there's a human race here in hundreds of years, people alive then will still be singing his songs."  One of the key figures of the folk revival in Scotland, McGinn was a prodigiously talented singer/songwriter who moved effortlessly between ribald humour, topical novelties, good-natured parodies, children's verse, tender love songs and heavily politicised protest material.  This two CD anthology represents his four-year spell in the late Sixties with leading folk label Transatlantic, for whom he recorded a quartet of albums that contain many of his best-loved and most enduring songs - including 'Coorie Doon' and 'Three Nights and a Sunday,' both of which would be included alongside the likes of Woody Guthrie, Leadbelly and Bob Dylan in the Smithsonian's Top One Hundred Folk Songs of the 20th Century.  This double CD offers Matt McGinn's entire output for the legendary Transatlantic Records for the first time.  Taken from the original master tapes, many of the tracks have never been released on CD before.

Various Artists/Milk of the Tree: An Anthology of Female Vocal Folk & Singer-Songwriters 1966-1973 ....import triple CD $25.99

From Esoteric distributor Cherry Red, over the course of four hours and sixty tracks, Milk of the Tree focuses on the music made in the late Sixties and early Seventies in both Britain and North America by either female solo artists or acts with featured female vocalists. Along the way, we encounter San Franciscan psychedelia, LA folk rock, Swinging London pop-folk, electric folk, progressive folk and even folk club folk as well as (of course) a plethora of singer- songwriters (including various ladies of the Canyon) from the movement's golden age.  As well as featuring most of the leading figures from both sides of the Atlantic, Milk of the Tree includes many performers who received little attention at the time but who now have a cult reputation amongst collectors. A significant number of tracks were unreleased at the time, while the set also includes the first-ever appearance by pioneering female rock duo Emily Muff, two American girls who were based in England during the period in question but failed to land a recording contract.  With a 44-page booklet crammed with rare photos and details of the various acts featured, the clambox-housed Milk of the Tree is not only a fascinating social document but, we hope, a hugely entertaining snapshot of a particular time, place and frame of mind that produced some enduring, spellbinding music.

Glenn Hughes/Feel [Remastered & Expanded Edition] ....import double CD $17.99

From Esoteric distributor Cherry Red, Glenn Hughes' fourth solo album, "Feel," was originally released in 1995, and found the singer veering towards more pop, soul and funk than the hard rock that he's often better known for. Former Guns N' Roses and Velvet Revolver drummer Matt Sorum guests, and the album also sees a welcome collaboration with his Hughes Thrall partner, Pat Thrall.  This two CD edition includes a re-recording of Deep Purple's 'Holy Man,' originally recorded for the "Stormbringer" LP, plus exclusive acoustic versions of 'From Now On' and 'Lay My Body Down,' plus live versions of Deep Purple's 'You Keep on Moving,' 'Gettin' Tighter' and 'Stormbringer.'  The expanded booklet features liner notes by Classic Rock magazine's Malcolm Dome based on new interviews with Glenn.

From Esoteric distributor Cherry Red, Glenn's fifth solo album, "Addiction," was originally released in 1996, and unlike the more pop, soul and funk sounds of his previous record "Feel," "Addiction" sees the singer returning to a much harder rocking sound. Guitarist Marc Bonilla performs, co-produces and co-wrote nine of the ten original songs.  This two CD edition includes live versions of Trapeze classics 'Way Back to the Bone,' 'Coast to Coast' and 'Your Love Is Alright,' as well as live versions of Deep Purple's 'Gettin' Tighter,' 'Stormbringer' and 'Burn.'  The expanded booklet features liner notes by Classic Rock magazine's Malcolm Dome based on new interviews with Glenn.

Hard Stuff/The Complete Purple Records Anthology 1971-1973 ....import double CD $21.99

Hard Stuff/The Complete Purple Records Anthology 1971-1973 ....import double CD $21.99

From Esoteric distributor Cherry Red, when Purple Records was first set up in 1971, it was by no means a mere vanity label to release Deep Purple product, from "Machine Head" until the end of the decade; it also set out to nurture and discover raw talent too. The label would eventually become home to debut solo releases from Jon Lord, Roger Glover, David Coverdale and Glenn Hughes, as well as early releases from Yvonne Elliman and Ronnie James Dio with Elf.  One of their earliest signings was a hard rock band called Bullet, featuring guitarist John Du Cann and drummer Paul Hammond, both formerly of Atomic Rooster, having played on "Death Walks Behind You" (1970), and "In the Hearing Of" (1971), as well as the hit single 'The Devil's Answer.' They were joined by Quatermass bassist John Gustafson. After only one single, they discovered a US band already called Bullet, swiftly changing their name to Hard Stuff.  Hard Stuff issued their vinyl debut in 1972, with "Bulletproof." Kicking off with the single 'Jay Time,' the album also includes an exclusive co-write with Purple label-mates Ian Gillan and Roger Glover on 'Monster In Paradise,' originally written for Quatermass. The original 10 track LP is now augmented with the Bullet 45, 'Hobo' b/w 'Sinister Minister,' plus 'Jay Time' and the non-album B-Side 'The Orchestrator.'  After touring Europe, unsurprisingly often as support to Deep Purple, Hard Stuff recorded their second platter, "Bolex Dementia," at A.I.R. Studios and De Lane Lea in Wembley. Taking on a funkier direction than the previous record, "Bolex Dementia" has now been enhanced with the very rare single, 'Inside Your Life' b/w '(It's) How You Do It!'   The booklet includes an essay by Classic Rock's Malcolm Dome, based on interviews with the band's John Gustafson, and Deep Purple's Roger Glover.

Fandango with Joe Lynn Turner/The Complete RCA Albums 1977-1980 ....import 4 CD Set $26.99

From Esoteric distributor Cherry Red, Fandango originally formed in 1976, when singer Joe Lynn Turner hooked up with guitarist Rick Blakemore, bassist Bob Danyls, with Abe Speller on drums, creating a prolific song writing partnership with keyboard player Denny LaRue. They were discovered by RCA Records whilst playing the local clubs in the tri-state area of New Jersey, New York and Connecticut, the same scene that gave the world Twisted Sister.  Between October 1977 and March 1980, Fandango released four solid albums through RCA; "Fandango," "Last Kiss," "One Night Stand" and "Cadillac." According to Joe Lynn Turner's official biography, Fandango were, "a band described as an eclectic mix of R&B, pop, country, jazz and melodic rock."  Despite some high profile slots opening for, among others, The Allman Brothers, The Marshall Tucker Band, The Beach Boys and Billy Joel, Fandango missed making a significant mark on the US charts. It was shortly after the release of their fourth and final album that Joe Lynn Turner received the invitation from Ritchie Blackmore to join Rainbow for 1981's "Difficult To Cure." The singer would help steer Rainbow through some major success in North America, with hits such as 'I Surrender,' 'Street of Dreams' and 'Stone Cold.'  Following Rainbow's split in 1984, Joe Lynn Turner would go on to front Yngwie J. Malmsteen's Rising Force, Deep Purple for their "Slaves And Masters" album, the Hughes Turner Project with Glenn Hughes, as well as a prolific solo career.  Also included in this 4 disc set are mono-radio versions of the tracks 'Last Kiss,' 'Late Nights' and 'Blame It on the Night,' and the booklet includes a new essay from Classic Rock's Malcolm Dome based on new interviews with singer Joe Lynn Turner.

O.R.k./Soul of an Octopus ....CD $15.99

2017 release. Following on the heels of 2015's captivating Inflamed Rides, the members of the powerful collective O.R.k. - lead singer Lorenzo Esposito Fornasari, Porcupine Tree bassist Colin Edwin, Marta Sui Tubi guitarist Carmelo Pipitone and King Crimson drummer Pat Mastelotto - were primed to deliver an even more potent statement for their sophomore offering. Coming off of a triumphant tour of Europe and South America, they were charged to take things up a notch. And so it was with Soul of an Octopus, their second recording and RareNoise debut. This one finds the four kindred spirits dealing in even deeper waters. "After Inflamed Rides we did around 30 shows in Europe, Argentina, Chile and Mexico this year," says Fornasari. "That definitely helped us to reign in our sound and get to a more focused mutual vision. So all the pieces from the new album represent an honest and effective picture of who we are as O.R.k. right now."

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.

Magnetic is the exciting new album by London based music producer / musician Gaudi, which features a choice selection of sounds from the catalogue of internationally respected experimental label RareNoiseRecords, as well as direct contributions by several top caliber musicians from the worlds of rock, jazz and electronica. The making of Magmetoc truly was a creational challenge, even for a man who has been working to dissolve musical boundaries for over 35 years. The initial idea of the project was to compose an album of entirely new music using sounds from the RareNoise catalogue as his 'orchestra of musicians.'  Over the course of its development it grew though into a full spectrum artistic interaction with a further array of international music giants, some of which Gaudi has worked in past with.

Jamie Saft/Loneliness Road ....CD $15.99

Jamie Saft/Loneliness Road ....CD $15.99

2017 release. Over a career now spanning nearly thirty years, Jamie Saft has established himself as one of the visionaries of contemporary American music. As a composer, pianist and keyboard innovator, and collaborator of music icons such as Bad Brains, Beastie Boys, the B-52s, Donovan, John Adams and John Zorn, he has been fearless in his pursuit of spiritual elevation through music that both seeks to embrace the whole American canon, and also transcend it, by seamlessly assimilating genres, traditions, idioms and timelines. His collaboration with London based progressive label RareNoise, now dating back to 2012, reflects this polymathic approach, as can be gleaned from listening to the array of path-breaking, irreducible recordings he released with them: among these, one of the most successful was a piano trio collaboration with jazz giants Steve Swallow and Bobby Previte, The New Standard. In Loneliness Road, the follow-up album to that acclaimed 2014 release, the trio of Saft, Swallow and Previte are joined on three tracks ("Don't Lose Yourself," "Loneliness Road," "Everyday") by singer Iggy Pop.

On the heels of his acclaimed 2016 recording, Cuong Vu Trio Meets Pat Metheny and his 2014 collaboration with electro-acoustic pianist-composer and Director of the School of Music at the University of Washington Richard Karpen on their Ellington-Strayhorn tribute That the Days Go By and Never Come Again, trumpeter-composer Cuong Vu joins forces with guest guitarist Bill Frisell on Ballet, a tribute to renowned composer-arranger Michael Gibbs. With regular Vu 4Tet bassist Luke Bergman and drummer Ted Poor, the four exchange ideas in the moment in a collective fashion on the expansive opening track, "Ballet," which gradually morphs into a kind of quirky, dissonant blues waltz featuring brilliant solos from Vu and Frisell. Regarding this exhilarating Vu 4Tet project, Vu says, "This was a very collective/equal opportunity effort, so we just played and dealt with the cards collectively as they were dealt. I think it just comes down to the collection of players and our individual aesthetics coming together and trying to find a common goal/language." They succeed in triumphant fashion on Ballet, the second collaboration between Cuong Vu and Bill Frisell (their first was Vu's 2005 ArtistShare album Mostly Residual).

Bill Brovold & Jamie Saft/Serenity Knolls ....CD $15.99

2017 release. Jamie Saft has been a significant presence on RareNoiseRecords since the label's inception. Now, on Serenity Knolls, he stakes out some completely different territory. An intimate duo project with guitarist Bill Brovold, a former member of such New York no-wave bands as the Rhys Chatham Ensemble, the East Village Orchestra and the Zen Vikings, it features Saft alternating between playing dobro and lap steel on a set of 12 ambient type tunes with a distinctive heartland undercurrent to them. An accomplished keyboardist-composer who has been widely acknowledged for his work with various John Zorn projects, including The Dreamers, Electric Masada and Moonchild, the Queens native and current resident of Kingston in upstate New York has nonetheless has maintained a longstanding relationship with the guitar. As he explains, "I've played guitar since I was a youth as well as bass guitar, so this isn't something new for me at all. In fact, my guitar playing is featured on many of my albums such as Breadcrumb Sins (Tzadik), Sunshine Seas (RareNoise) and Black Shabbis (Tzadik) as well as being prominently featured in my original score for the Oscar nominated film Murderball."

Alternately calm (the 12-minute "Jimma Blue") and crushing ("Mongrel Mangrove," "My Heart Is Somewhere Else" and the blistering title track), Summa stands as another powerful manifesto against complacency by the renegade trio. Moster does appear as special guest alongside celebrated Hungarian electroacoustic composer Balint Bolcso on the expansive 12-minute track "Partir," providing a bridge to the first album.

The fire and fury of '60s free jazz and the tumult of electronic rock tinged experimental music is on full display on this new powerhouse offering from four cutting edge Oslo based musicians collectively known as Reflection in Cosmo. With Kjetil Moster on saxes, Hans Magnus Ryan on guitar, Stale Storlokken on keyboards and Thomas Stronen on drums, these four kindred spirits strike a tumultuous accord on their self titled debut on RareNoise Records, which represents Moster's followup on RareNoise to his edgy avant jazz collaboration in 2014 with the Hungarian power trio Ju. At times recalling the ferocious intensity of the late '80s free jazz quartet Last Exit (Peter Brotzman, Sonny Sharrock, Bill Lawell, Ronald Shannon Jackson), this potent Norwegian outfit pushes the envelope with Moster's blowtorch intensity on baritone and tenor saxes, Ryan's wailing electric guitar work, Storlokken's crunchy, distortion laced keyboards and Stronen's thunderous drumming.

Miriodor/Signal 9 ....CD $17.99

Miriodor/Signal 9 ....CD $17.99

"Metaphorically, we could say that Miriodor is a planet, with aliens communicating in their mysterious ways with planet Earth," says Miriodor's keyboardist, Pascal Globensky. In that sense, the long-lived Montreal band's ninth album, entitled Signal 9, could simply be considered the ninth set of musical messages from that exotic heavenly body.  The Miriodor discography has been building strength upon strength with each successive album. The band combines jazz, classical, rock, and international influences for an arresting, idiosyncratic sound that eludes description but remains immediately identifiable as Mirodor.  Picking up where the most recent coded message from planet Miriodor, 2013's Cobra Fakir, left off, Signal 9 arrives like an invitation to an otherworldly voyage. Each track marks another twist and turn in a journey across strange, captivating landscapes populated by creatures, crafts, and constructions whose like has never been glimpsed outside the band's idiosyncratic ecosystem.  Globensky, drummer Remi Leclerc, and guitarist Bernard Falaise have expanded Miriodor to a quartet with the addition of bassist Nicolas Lessard as a full-time member. Accordingly, the band works like a one eight-handed, four-brained organism here, operating more organically and collectively than ever.  And while Miriodor often forges some of their heaviest sounds to date over the course of Signal 9, the album is also loaded with off-the-wall humor and some beautiful, contemplative melodic moments. The combination makes for some crafty contrasts, frequently flipping back and forth drastically from one mood to another multiple times within a single composition for a jarring-but-thrilling effect.  Once you return to your everyday life after emerging from the alternative universe of Signal 9, the whole album seems like some kind of fever dream you've just emerged from. But the big difference is that it's a dream you're eager to leap right back into again.

Cheer-Accident/Putting Off Death ....CD $17.99

putting.jpg (11413 bytes)

Bands, like the human beings that comprise them, are mortal. Against all the odds, in the face of an unstable record industry that never embraced their restless experimentation, Chicago avant-rock pioneers Cheer-Accident have survived to release their 18th album, Putting Off Death. More than 30 years after first joining forces, fellow eclecticists Thymme Jones and Jeff Libersher have faced down the inevitable and returned with a new set of songs that's as unpredictable, exploratory and viscerally compelling as anything they've released over the course of their erratically evolving career. The music is action packed and filled to the brim with living, breathing humanity. The band's continuing hunger bleeds through in the music's immediacy. As Jones says, "There's still something to prove."  The band's third release for Cuneiform follows in the elusive, meandering trajectory of their earlier work, which is always instantly identifiable if never quite definable. They've managed to conjure a unique collage of intricate prog, lush pop and experimental noise, drawing on hugely disparate influences without ever settling on a sound that could be definitively traced to any of them in isolation. Meaning that they always did and continue to, sound like no one but themselves.

The Great Harry Hillman/Tilt ....CD $17.99

The Great Harry Hillman/Tilt ....CD $17.99

Switzerland doesn't produce many musical acts compared to other European countries, but the ones that do emerge are always of the highest quality. The Great Harry Hillman is a quartet from Lucerne, a lakeside city in the center of the country. About the name: Harry Hillman was an American athlete who won three gold medals at the 1904 Summer Olympics. That the hurdler Harry Hillman deserved his own band became apparent when exactly 105 years later The Great Harry Hillman came into being. Performing a sort of undefinable post-jazz which represents the jazz and creative music of today, we all feel quite that Harry Hillman would be pleased.  The Great Harry Hillman's music combines jazz, rock, and improv into a subdued, layered, yet thrilling sound that will appeal to fans of bands like Radian or Tortoise, as well as modern jazz artists like Mary Halvorson.  Tilt comes in a specially band-designed and put together package, which is quite splendidly wonderful!

Bubblemath/Edit Peptide ....CD $17.99

Bubblemath/Edit Peptide ....CD $17.99

Fifteen years in the making, Minnesota eclectic prog / avant-pop / art-math quintet Bubblemath's sophmore sequence, Edit Peptide, provides a worthwhile wait with its non-formulaic formula of lively textures, wacky and virtuosic musicianship, hypnotically robust vocals and charmingly astute attitude. Blending in-your-face intricacy with eccentric experimentation, dense and poppy harmonies, symphonic vibrancy and tongue-in-cheek foundation, Bubblemath are clever and musicially intricate, but despite their loyal adherence to high information-density compositional constructs, they make serious and seriously quirky music that doesn't take itself too seriously and allows the fun to shine through.  The current Bubblemath line-up came together in 1998 and released their 1st, 2002's Such Fine Particles of the Universe. Then came mostly silence. Naturally, they recognize that having so many years between albums could be - as Kai Esbensen jokes - "[an] advantage or a detriment. Maybe both!"  Ultimately, the lengthy hiatus did prove positive, though, as it allowed "all five of [them] to become better musicians" who are capable of yielding a more striving, unpredictable, and colorful collection. They couldn't be prouder of it!  It's not often that a band releases a new album after such a long hiatus, let alone something that exceeds expectations beyond fans' wildest dreams. Somehow, though, Bubblemath has done just that with Edit Peptide. By conducting so many divergent styles, refining their songwriting and compositional skills, and most of all, sticking to their guns when it comes to crafting highly challenging and adventurous, but also quite hypnotic and welcoming, tunes, the quintet proves just how perfectly a band can fuse the familiar and the fresh.

Weather Report/Heavy Weather ....SACD $27.99

Weather Report/Heavy Weather ....SACD $27.99

"An all-time classic...Zawinul, Pastorius and Shorter at their zenith!"   Heavy Weather remains the touchstone - and easily the best-selling album by the pioneering jazz-rock fusion band Weather Report.  Formed in 1971 and continuing until 1986, the group's creative axis was keyboardist/composer Joe Zawinul and saxophonist/composer Wayne Shorter.  Borrowing tinges of earthtones from Cannonball Adderley's sanctified small groups of the 1960s and watercolors from the 1969 Miles Davis album In a Silent Way, Weather Report's musical palette could be as unpredictable and changeable as a New England spring, and as electrifying as a sudden thunderstorm.   Recorded in 1977, Heavy Weather added dramatic new tonal colors, from Zawinul's electronics to the innovative fretless electric bass pulsations of Jaco Pastorius. The music ranged from Zawinul's catchy crossover hit single "Birdland" to his haunting tone poem "A Remark You Made," and from Shorter's stately "Harlequin" to the rocking undertow of Pastorius' "Teen Town."

Santana/Lotus ....double SACD $35.99

Santana/Lotus ....double SACD $35.99

"...one of the greatest live albums ever recorded and one of the supreme achievements in guitar playing."  Lotus is a 1974 live album by Santana, recorded at the Osaka Koseinenkin Hall, Osaka, Japan in 1973. It was originally released in 1974 as a triple vinyl LP in Japan only. The first U.S. release was in 1991 as a 2-CD set. It features the "New Santana Band" and combines that group's jazz and spiritual influences. Some of the band's biggest hits are performed, such as "Black Magic Woman" and "Oye Como Va," but it is the extended, intense instrumentals that are the order of the day such as the breathtaking "Incident at Neshabur," "Every Step of the Way," and "Toussaint L'Overture."   Carlos' superpowered guitar is mesmerizing, the entire atmosphere is otherworldly, beautiful, modern jazzy and most of all, electrifying. His guitar tone is perfect, each solo has a central rhythmic and melodic structure that was used to express in a moment what can never be repeated. The greatness of Lotus is its ability to take all of Carlos' beautiful melodies and expand them each into a whole new creation.  Santana fans know there are "several different Santanas." This was the MILES Santana, the COLTRANE Santana. This is scary and amazing music played with so much mind-numbing passion. Carlos' guitar speaks notes on this recording that are nothing short of amazing. He manages to imbue a vibration that cuts right through your soul. Even on the familiar hits, the jazz fusion makes its way into the notes and Carlos delivers a new message. Lotus is basically Carlos Santana's "A Love Supreme." This was the top of Santana's spiritual-fusion era. Lotus is the Live Santana album that gives other Live albums a bad name. Amazing, breathtaking, emotional, spiritual...and it rocks!  Mastered by Steve Hoffman and Stephen Marsh at Marsh Mastering.  SACD Authoring: Stephen Marsh at Marsh Mastering

Spirit/Spirit ....SACD $27.99

spirit.jpg (14819 bytes)

Spirit's 1968 debut album spent more than six months on the Billboard album charts and received heavy airplay on underground FM radio. Their music was part of the core, essence, and heartbeat of the hippie, psychedelic, counter culture movement. The album is timeless... as fresh today as when it first appeared.  The band could play more styles than almost any other group. On "Spirit" they unveiled a melange of rock, jazz, blues, folk-rock, and even a bit classical and Indian music. Guitar prodigy Randy California is a clear standout, but the other band members are superb as well: John Locke's shimmering keyboards, Mark Andes' subsonic wall of bass, and Ed Cassidy's precision drumming. Big credit has to go to lead singer Jay Ferguson, whose phrasing is always just right with a wonderful spontaneous feel. The Marty Paich string arrangements are sublime.

Spirit/The Family that Plays Together ....SACD $27.99

Spirit/The Family that Plays Together ....SACD $27.99

"Every song is a riveting study in music without barriers."  Includes the hit, "I Got a Line on You" and FIVE bonus tracks!  The Family that Plays Together was released in December 1968. On this, the second Spirit album, the group put all of the elements together that made them the legendary band that they were. The Family that Plays Together displays the band's ability to play beyond the genre of psychedelic rock. jazz, rock & roll, and even classical elements combined to create one of the cleanest, most tasteful syntheses of its day. The album's hit single, "I Got a Line on You," boasts especially strong harmonies as well as one of the greatest rock riffs of the period.  Ed Cassidy's Spirit songs covered about every subject under the sun. The first half of the recording is a wonderful and seamless suite, and taken in its entirety, one of the greatest sides on Los Angeles rock. The SACD includes some excellent bonus tracks. "So Little to Say" is one of Jay Ferguson's finest compositions ever, and the jazz-inspired instrumentals such as "Fog" and "Space Chile" showcase pianist John Locke as one of the most inspired and lyrical players in the rock idiom. Tracks such as "It Shall Be" and "Silky Sam" demonstrate the ease with which the ensemble can incorporate jazz into their idiosyncratic form of rock, while "Jewish" and "Aren't You Glad" show the band's competence in exploiting both world music and jam rock.  The album's title was inspired by the stepson-stepfather relationship between guitarist Randy California and percussionist Ed Cassidy.  All in all, a classic album and a true landmark.

Blue Cheer/Vincebus Eruptum ....SACD $27.99

Blue Cheer/Vincebus Eruptum ....SACD $27.99

Rock & Roll had grown louder by leaps and bounds during the '60s, but when Blue Cheer emerged from San Francisco onto the national rock scene in 1968 with their debut album, "Vincebus Eruptum," they crossed a line which most musicians and fans hadn't even thought to draw yet. The album features a heavy, thunderous blues sound, which would later be known as heavy metal. It also contains elements of acid rock, grunge, experimental rock, blues rock, stoner rock, and garage rock. A commercial and critical success, "Vincebus Eruptum" peaked at #11 on the Billboard 200 Albums chart and spawned the top-20 hit cover of Eddie Cochran's "Summertime Blues."  No band could summon so much thunder with just three people. "Vincebus Eruptum" is still the Blue Cheer's album to own. It was their simplest and most forceful musical statement.

Grand Funk/All the Girls in the World Beware!!! ....SACD  $27.99

Grand Funk/All the Girls in the World Beware!!! ....SACD  $27.99

A pop/rock mainstream hit album... includes the hits "Some Kind of Wonderful" and "Bad Time."  All the Girls in the World Beware!!! is Grand Funk Railroad's ninth studio album.  First there was the heavy metal power trio, then the powerful hard rock quartet and after years of loud, in-your-face rock albums and tours, Mark Farner, Don Brewer, Mel Schacher and Craig Frost went into the studio and made an album that has a lot more R&B combined with good ol' rock and roll and way ahead of its time.  The album's combination of high-gloss production and the band's energy resulted in a few impressive hits: "Some Kind of Wonderful" is an exuberant, organ-drenched soul song that highlights the group's strong harmonies while "Bad Time" mixes a delicate, string-laden melody with a pulsing beat from the rhythm section to create a one-of-a-kind power ballad.  All the Girls in the World Beware!!! has many inventive moments. The seven-minute "Good & Evil" is fascinating for Brewer's strange, processed lead vocal. "Look at Granny Run Run" is sheer, goofy fun and "Memories" is a serious stab at out-and-out balladry.  The album's artwork included taking the faces of the band members and manipulating them onto the bodies of famous body builders Arnold Schwarzenegger and Franco Columbo. The center spread art is a Neal Adams illustration of the buffed band surrounded by a crowd of female fans.

Deep Purple - From The Setting Sun (In Wacken) To The Rising Sun UK Import Blu-Ray $25.99
Double Blu-ray/All Region edition. Contains two best-selling video releases. From The Setting Sun... (In Wacken): Recorded and filmed in Wacken 2013, Deep Purple performed a unique concert, throwing away all their usual stage routine (and sometime arrangements). During this concert, Deep Purple left their "safe zone". That is why this concert is the one that represents a feeling of improvisation and electricity similar to the band's classic years - more than many other live releases by the band... To The Rising Sun (In Tokyo): If Wacken shows Deep Purple's performance in front of a huge rock audience, playing as if they had to leave all their habits behind, the Tokyo show 2014 is presenting Deep Purple completely at ease with their history and themselves. On the very same venue where the band has written rock history with the album Made In Japan, Deep Purple went on stage without nostalgia and with the attitude of a band that is physically led by the music. Song after song, Purple play a flawless show going back and forth in time. Deep Purple's many sides are at their best here: the energy but also the groove, the great solo moments by Don Airey and Steve Morse. The soft sides and their energetic heavy counterparts.

Wakeman, Rick - Other Side Of Rick Wakeman With CD, 2PC DVD $18.99
Rick Wakeman, the prog god of the keyboards as you have never seen him before. As Clint Weiler writes: "Rick Wakeman in an up-close and uproarious stand-up performance filmed live in front of a studio audience.

Various Artists - Let The Electric Children Play: Underground Story Of TransatlanticRecords Deluxe Edition, RM, UK Import, 3PC CD $24.99
Esoteric Recordings are proud to announce the release of a new deluxe 3CD which tells the story of the so-called "underground" era of one of Britain's great independent record labels of the 1960s & 1970s, Transatlantic Records. In the heady atmosphere of the late 1960s, the sea change in British popular music spearheaded by the Beatles experimentation on the Sergeant Pepper album and swiftly followed by the likes of Cream, Pink Floyd, Traffic, Family, Procol Harum, Jethro Tull and a host of groups and musicians who followed in their footsteps led to the album being seen as the medium in which "serious" musicians would explore and develop their craft. The apparently disparate genres of blues, jazz, rock, folk and even world music were fused together by many diverse acts all of whom were eager to be regarded as "progressive" in their musical approach. The so-called "underground" audience eagerly consumed this music, which sat alongside the social changes that were also taking place. In the UK the major labels established imprints such as Harvest, Vertigo and Deram to market music to this audience, inspired by the vision of independent labels such as Island Records. Another, smaller British independent label also swiftly tapped in to this new musical movement, Transatlantic Records. This proudly independent imprint, founded in 1961 by Nat Joseph, looked beyond it's initial folk, jazz and blues output to sign a distinctly quirky and diverse roster of "underground" acts. Between 1968 and 1976 Transatlantic explored all aspects of the "progressive" and "underground" scenes; from the "heavy" groups such as The Deviants, Jody Grind, Little Free Rock and Stray, to the acts on the fringes of folk and rock such as Pentangle, Mr Fox, Alan Hull, The Humblebums, Gryphon and Carolanne Pegg, to jazz rockers such as Circus and Marsupilami.

Barreca & Leimer - Dual Mono 2PC CD $18.99
Dual Mono is the third Barreca Leimer collaboration. The process used for producing Dual Mono was designed to destabilize established habits and predilections in favor of responding to the music in at least subjectively new ways. It was also designed to reduce the illusion of control, to become more responsive to and accepting of unpredicted outcomes, and to give the music-as much as possible-a voice less tampered with. Each piece for Dual Mono was authored by only one of the participants, the other receiving MIDI data and being limited to revoicing the composition. With a general goal of maintaining a result that was somewhat, though not purely, minimalist in sympathy, each piece was then assembled in it's final form by the originator, now limited to controlling relative levels, crossfades, editing and processing. The final fifteen pieces that span two CDs embrace a range of emergent, generative and traditional forms that express a calm, informed ambience amid unsettled, shifting soundscapes. Of an earlier collaboration, Textura stated "the sheer density of sound presented in representative settings such as 'Loess', 'Talus', and 'Oram' is incredible, and one comes away from Field Characteristics convinced that the claim regarding the hundreds of sounds involved in the recording's presentation is clearly fact, not hyperbole."

CD reissue. Mike Bloomfield was an American guitarist and composer, born in Chicago, Illinois.

Taken from two weekends worth of jam concerts at the Fillmore West in February 1969, this album makes features performances by Nick Gravenites, Mark Naftalin, John Kahn, and Snooky Flowers (among others), with cameos from Taj Mahal and Jesse Ed Davis.

All instrumental, with the exception of the song "The Soul of Patrick Lee", Church of Anthrax was the perfect melding of the experimental genius of two unique musicians. Hard to categorize, the album was recorded a year prior to it's release by Columbia in February 1971 and actually preceded Cale's first solo album. This Esoteric Recordings release has been newly remastered and features a booklet that fully restores the original album artwork and includes a new essay.

Captain Beefheart - Buddah Years - Holland - Import CD $15.99

Captain Beefheart & His Magic Band - Just Got Back From The City CD $16.99
The word 'genius' is very much over-used by music journalists, and there are a very few people within the rock music genre who are actually deserving of the term. Don Van Vliet, better known by the soubriquet of Captain Beefheart, is one of those few. Eccentric to the edge of insanity, and legendarily brutal to his musicians, he released a string of records from the mid-60s until he retired from the music business in 1982, disappearing with his wife into the desert to be a painter. This is a collection of previously unreleased recordings from 1965-67, which includes demos for such perennial favourites as 'Yellow Brick Road'. Truly, they don't make music like this anymore, and I seriously doubt that they ever will.

Colosseum - Those Who Are About To Die Salute You Expanded, Remastered, UK Import CD $19.99
Digitally remastered and expanded edition of the classic debut album by Colosseum.

The album featured the "classic" Colosseum line-up of Jon Hiseman (drums), Dave Greenslade (organ and vibes), Dick Heckstall-Smith (saxophones), James Litherland (guitar, vocals) and Tony Reeves (bass). Valentyne Suite is arguably the finest album by the band, featuring such outstanding tracks as 'The Kettle' (with a distinctive riff later sampled by Fatboy Slim), 'Elegy' and 'The Machine Demands a Sacrifice' (with lyrics by Pete Brown). However, the album's focal point was the three part 'Valentyne Suite' which earned the band critical praise and is now regarded as a milestone in early progressive rock.

Cooper, Alice - Paranormal 2PC CD $14.99
Deluxe two CD edition includes bonus live CD. 2017 album from the veteran shock rocker. Paranormal is Alice Cooper's 20th studio album, his first album of original material in six years. It's a weird and wonderful collection of guitar-driven delights and produced by long-time collaborator Bob Ezrin (Pink Floyd, Deep Purple), and featuring guests like ZZ Top guitarist Billy Gibbons, U2 drummer Larry Mullen, Deep Purple bassist Roger Glover, as well as a highly anticipated mini-reunion of the original Alice Cooper band members. Paranormal is full of surprises and riveting turns. In keeping with his passion for the unexpected, the singer decided to steer clear of writing another concept album like 2011's Welcome 2 My Nightmare, and focused on creating an explosive collection of unforgettable standalone songs. On Paranormal, Alice Cooper and Bob Ezrin go back to their roots and create the raw garage sound that fans loved and still love.

In addition to the 12 new tracks on "Paranormal", the singer has included a bonus disc of his current band playing killer live versions of some of The Coop's greatest hits, such as "No More Mr. Nice Guy," "Billion Dollar Babies" and "School's Out."

Galahad - Quiet Storms CD $16.99
Quiet Storms is a 2017 Galahad album with a difference. As the title suggests, Quiet Storms shows a more mellow and at times pastoral side to the band's output containing almost none of the bombast and heaviness of the previous three studio albums, instead the majority of the songs and their arrangements evoke a more laid back, spacious and introspective atmosphere.

Hot Tuna - Live At New Orleans House UK Import CD $14.99
CD reissue. Hot Tuna is an American blues band formed in 1969 by guitarist Jorma Kaukonen and bassist Jack Casady during a break from Jefferson Airplane while Grace Slick was recovering from throat surgery. The band played several shows around San Francisco before Jefferson Airplane resumed. Their early repertoire was derived mainly from Airplane material and covers of American country and blues artists. The band's name came from someone Kaukonen refers to as a "witty wag" who called out "hot tuna" after hearing the line 'What's that smell like fish, oh baby,' from the song "Keep On Truckin'". This album is taken from concerts recorded at New Orleans House, Berkeley in September 1969. It was originally released as the band's debut album Hot Tuna in 1970 and has become affectionately known as the "breaking glass album", because of the sound of breaking beer glasses which can be heard during "Uncle Sam Blues". Some tracks include Will Scarlett on harmonica.

Hughes, Glenn - Way It Is Expanded, UK Import, 2PC CD $17.99
Glenn Hughes' reissue programme for Purple Records continues apace with the release of his 1999 solo album, "The Way It Is". Produced by Glenn Hughes & Michael Scott, as well as featuring original material written with guitarist JJ Marsh, the album also includes two versions of Jimi Hendrix's 'Freedom'. Glenn Hughes originally came to prominence in Trapeze, but major success for the band was curtailed in 1973 when Glenn joined Deep Purple for "Burn", "Stormbringer" and "Come Taste The Band". When Purple split in 1976, Glenn's first post-Purple LP was the solo "Play Me Out", released in July 1977. Glenn would go on to collaborate with Pat Thrall in Hughes/Thrall, Rainbow's Joe Lynn Turner in the Hughes-Turner Project, and with Tony Iommi in Black Sabbath and the self-titled "Iommi" albums, plus a healthy solo career, that continues to this day. This 2CD edition includes a live concert recorded at London's Astoria 2, and features versions of Trapeze classics 'You Are the Music', 'Coast To Coast' and 'Your Love Is Alright', as well as an extended medley of Deep Purple tracks plus the song 'Gone', co-written with Black Sabbath's Tony Iommi. The expanded booklet features liner notes by Classic Rock magazine's Malcolm Dome based on new interviews with Glenn.

Innes, Neil - Off The Record CD $16.99
Digitally remastered edition of this 1982 album from the Rutles/Bonzo Dog Band/Monty Python member. After working with Python's Eric Idle on Rutland Weekend Television, Idle moved to the United States, and Innes went on to make a solo series in 1979 on BBC television, The Innes Book of Records, which ran for three seasons and contained a few of Innes' previous music compositions along with new ones written for the show. Off The Record is the fourth solo album by Neil Innes and was released in 1982 featuring songs from the second and third BBC television series of The Innes Book of Records.

Legg, Adrian - Lost For Words CD $16.99
Adrian Legg is a virtuoso guitar player -who, according to Richard Chapman - is "impossible to categorise as a player"- who brings electric approaches to acoustic playing. Legendary guitar virtuoso Joe Satriani says he is "simply the best acoustic guitar player I've ever heard. I don't know anyone else who can create such a cascade of beautiful notes... Adrian plays like he's got hammers for fingers." This, his fifth album, was originally released in 1986 and showcases his remarkable talents. We truly cannot recommend this record highly enough.

Manzanera, Phil & Lucho Brieva - Corroncho 2 CD $16.99
The second album by Phil Manzanera and artist and sculptor Lucho Brieva, Corroncho 2 continues the adventures of the two Corronchos. The Spanish speaking concept album tells the story of two hapless compadres from the Caribbean coast of Colombia - 'Corronchos' - who go on a road trip to 'the promised land', specifically Queens, in New York. Mistakenly turning right instead of left from Cartagena on the Caribbean coast, the 13 tracks document their incident-strewn adventures, as they navigate through the countries and cultures of South America, shining a light in their irreverent and humorous way, on the many issues of the Latino man, Love, Death, Politics and Dancing.

Mayall, John - Rock It In The Pocket CD $14.99

Mazurek, Rob - Mother Ode CD $14.99
2014 release. In July 2013, a few months after the passing of his mother, cornetist Rob Mazurek performed solo at the Corbett Vs. Dempsey gallery in Chicago. Mazurek is one of the highest profile figures in contemporary creative music, leading bands like the Exploding Star Orchestra, Skull Sessions Octet, and Starlicker. On this occasion, he brought a box filled with various implements - his cornet, naturally, but flutes, bells, books, maracas, apples, and little electronics. This box became an inexhaustible resource as he pulled new soundmakers from it and performed a profoundly intense dedication to his mom, culminating in a durational event that found him shaking the remaining contents of the box over his head until he could no longer hold his arms aloft. It was one of the most moving musical happenings that anyone at the gallery could remember, and Corbett Vs. Dempsey have taken the opportunity to release it as a CD. Often, such potent live events don't translate to a recording, but on Mother Ode, the emotional impact of Mazurek's dedication appear just as vividly, a deep mourning of death rubbing elbows with a joyous celebration of life.

Moore, Thurston - Sonic Street Chicago CD $14.99
2014 release. An epic outing on electric guitar, recorded in November 2013, as part of an evening of music and film at the Art Institute of Chicago. The CD features a single magnificent improvisation, ranging from brittle, delicate passages to full-throttle flame-throwing. Performing an accompaniment to James Nares's brilliant film Street (2001), Thurston Moore played with his back to the screen, letting the sounds and images converge and diverge of their own accord. The result was an extraordinary stand-alone live recording that shows Moore at peak power, one of the most confident and original guitarists of his generation. Cover artwork by Nares.

Nelson, Bill - Chance Encounters In The Garden Of Lights UK Import, 2PC CD $21.99
Deluxe expanded two CD edition of the classic Chance Encounters in the Garden of Lights. Originally issued on Bill's Cocteau label in 1987, the double set featured two distinct works; The Angel at the Western Window and The Book of Inward Conversation. In his note for the original release Bill Nelson declared; "The music presented on these two albums marks the consolidation of several years of musical and philosophical practice. Almost every piece was conceived during moments of intense stillness or 'magical vacuity'. Of all the music I have made, this is, perhaps, the most personal and yet the least demonstrative." Chance Encounters in the Garden of Lights has now become a highly regarded collection of beautifully evocative ambient music in the prolific discography of Bill Nelson. Long out of print, this Cocteau Discs remastered limited edition presents this wonderful double album once again, restoring the original artwork in the collection in a deluxe digipack set. It also features 21 bonus tracks drawn from the 1988 CD edition and a rare limited edition EP included with the very first LP pressing of the double album.

Nico - Behind The Iron Curtain CD $16.99
Nico was a remarkable woman. Except, of course, she wasn't called Nico at all. She was born Christa Paffgen in 1938 and went through her teenage years in the ruins of post-war Berlin. At 16yrs old she became a model, and a few years later she appeared in one of Fellini's most acclaimed movies, following which she acclaimed the status of a true icon of the Beat Generation. In 1965, she became involved with Rolling Stones guitarist Brian Jones and she made her first album a year or so later. But her reputation only really began when Andy Warhol invited her to join the legendary Velvet Underground. Her solo career proper began in 1968 and she released four more albums over the next 17yrs. Her singular deep voice, often only accompanied by herself on harmonium, became highly critically regarded. This record, Behind the Iron Curtain, is a concert recorded by Nico for "Pandora's Music Box '85" at de Doelen Concertgebouw, Grote Zaai (Great Hll), in Rotterdam, the Netherlands on October 9, 1985.

Poco - Live At Columbia Studios UK Import CD $14.99
CD reissue. Poco are a Southern California country rock band originally formed by Richie Furay, Jim Messina and Rusty Young. Formed following the demise of The Buffalo Springfield in 1968, Poco was part of the first wave of the West Coast country rock genre. The title of their first album, Pickin' Up the Pieces, is reputedly a reference to the break-up of The Buffalo Springfield. This album was recorded in front of an audience of mostly family, friends, and music company executives from Columbia. The band had just released the studio album From the Inside, which introduced Paul Cotton in place of Jim Messina. Cotton's contributions on electric guitar signify that Poco was headed in a more commercially rock-oriented direction. The set list is made up of material from the new album, with four more from Deliverin', and The Buffalo Springfield's "A Child's Claim to Fame" as part of a medley that also includes "Pickin' Up the Pieces. "

Raspberries - Pop Art Live 2PC CD $21.99

Savoy Brown - Witchy Feelin' CD $14.99
Blues is not for the faint-hearted. Since the genre first drew breath, it's greatest practitioners have embraced the darkness, spinning tales of hardship and death, hellhounds and devilry. If the sleeve of Witchy Feelin' suggests that Kim Simmonds, too, has a tendency towards the macabre, then Savoy Brown's iconic leader is happy to confirm it. "Blues has always dealt with themes of the Devil, witchcraft and so forth, and I've always written along those lines. At least three of the songs on Witchy Feelin' have that hoodoo vibe..." Released in 2017 on Ruf Records, Witchy Feelin' proves the Devil still has all the best tunes. From the thrillingly brittle guitar riff that opens Why Did You Hoodoo Me, we are in the hands of a master, with Simmonds reigniting the seismic vocals and searing fretwork that established Savoy Brown as linchpins of the '60s British blues boom. "On this album, I tried my best to get my voice in it's power zone," he explains. "I'm a baritone singer. I like listening to singers I can relate to, such as J.J. Cale, Mark Knopfler, Tony Joe White and Tom Rush. For my guitar playing, I still get inspiration from Otis Rush, Buddy Guy and all the Chicago players I grew up listening to back in '63... but I always listen to new music too." Recording alongside Pat Desalvo (bass), Garnet Grimm (drums) and engineer Ben Elliott, Simmonds leads us into a world of dark nights, wild weather, women and whiskey: all perennial themes given a modern twist by this ageless bluesman. "The songs on this album have been two years in the making," he reflects. "I tried to write songs that had a personal point of view yet can be relatable to everyone. On Vintage Man, I wrote about being the type of guy who doesn't change as he gets older. I wrote about the power of love on Why Did You Hoodoo Me. And with Guitar Slinger, I wrote a song about seeing a great guitar player in an old country bar - as I did when I first saw Roy Buchanan in '69."

Schulze, Klaus - En=trance RM CD $20.99
Schulze, Klaus & Solar Moon System - Ultimate Docking 2PC CD $22.99

Splinter - Place I Love CD $16.99
Apparently, when The Beatles' musical partnership fell apart in a farrago of bitterness in 1970 and 1971, George and Ringo tried to buy Apple Records from the other two. And when that brave plan failed ignominously both ex-Beatles started their own record labels. The first was George with Dark Horse records, which slightly peculiarly, didn't actually feature George's Dark Horse album. What it did include was this remarkable debut album by South Shields duo Splinter. They released 5 albums, but this -their debut- was the one which garnered the best reviews, and even spawned a hit single. Singer Bill Elliot had a Beatles connection going back to 1971, when he sang lead on John Lennon's song 'God Save Us'; a fundraiser for the Oz magazine obscenity trial, which is now one of the most collectable releases on Apple Records.

Stewart, Eric & 10CC - Anthology UK Import, 2PC CD $19.99
Two CD set. Eric Stewart is most known for his tenure with the Mindbenders in the 1960s, and 10cc from 1972 to 1995. In 1968, he became a co-owner of Strawberry Studios in Stockport, where he developed skills as a recording engineer and record producer. His involvement in Strawberry was instrumental in the eventual formation of 10cc. Stewart has collaborated with Paul McCartney on three of his albums recorded between 1982 and 1986. He has also recorded three solo albums and released Viva La Difference in 2009. This compilation brings together tracks from all his solo albums and some tracks from his period in 10cc for the first time. Compiled and co-mastered by Eric, these two discs showcase the talents of one of the UK's best producers and writers. Some of these tracks are available on CD for the first time.

Various Artists - Take What You Need: UK Covers Of Bob Dylan Songs 1964-1969 UK Import CD $14.99
A compilation of cover versions of Bob Dylan songs recorded by British artists in the 1960s. "Take What You Need" gives a unique perspective on Dylan's compositions, with the choice of songs starkly contrasting to those recorded in America during the same period. This collection runs the gamut of musical genres from folk to country rock, taking in singer-songwriters, rhythm & blues and pop. Several extremely rare cuts make their official CD debut here, notably tracks by the Fairies (their cover of 'Don't Think Twice' was the very first British Dylan cover), Julie Felix, Boz and Cliff Aungier. The sleeve note contains a detailed track-by-track commentary by Elektra Records and Sandy Denny biographer Mick Houghton.

Various Artists - Twin Peaks (Music From The Limited Event Series) CD $18.99

Wakeman, Rick - Simply Accoustic With DVD CD $18.99
CD reissue. Rick Wakeman is an British keyboardist, songwriter, television and radio presenter, author, and actor. He is best known for being in the progressive rock band Yes across five tenures between 1971 and 2004 and for his solo albums released since the 1970s. Here with just a grand piano, Wakeman manages to roll thirty-plus years of music into an entertaining and quite rewarding trip down memory lane in front of a live audience. He gives forth with arrangements of his work from every point in his career, from his time with the Strawbs ("A Glimpse Of Heaven"), his days as a marathon session musician (David Bowie's "Space Oddity," Cat Stevens' "Morning Has Broken"), his various stints with Yes and ABWH (a lovely version of "Wonderous Stories" and a medley of "The Meeting" and "And You And I") and high points from his solo career in the bargain. Wakeman intersperses these performances with stories of how the songs and pieces were written, and he is a natural racounter and howlingly funny at times. If the music thing doesn't work out, he'd make a killing doing stand-up comedy in the Catskills! All told, Simply Acoustic is a concert recording that makes you wish you'd actually been there.

Asia - Alpha SACD $28.99

Dylan, Bob - Another Side Of Bob Dylan SACD-Hybrid $39.99
Limited Mobile Fidelity SACD hybrid pressing. The ever-evasive Bob Dylan never explicitly stated exactly what represented the another side of himself referenced in the title to his second 1964 record. Yet the whimsical moods, hallucinogenic prose, humorous angles, transparent mistakes, and noncommittal themes give a pretty clear idea at what the Bard hinted as he emerged from being labeled as a reluctant generation spokesperson and folk savior after releasing two highly intellectual, socially pioneering sets replete with protest songs. Dylan needed to take a breath, step back from the drama, and reevaluate his surroundings. The uninhibited joie de vive is discernible in the rattling piano lines on 'Black Crow Blues', seemingly subconscious ramble of the hysterical folk rhyming of 'Motorpsycho Nightmare', bluesy dream sequencing throughout' I Don't Believe You', and intentionally out-of-tune yodeling during 'All I Really Want to Do'. On a majority of the prized set, Dylan let's his guard down, but does so in clever manners that speak to his surrealist imagination and biting wit. He possesses the rare ability to make planned strategies appear spontaneous, to challenge audiences with stinting wordplay and minimalist melodies that provide a deceptive false security.

Dylan, Bob - Freewheelin' Bob Dylan SACD-Hybrid $39.99
Limited Mobile Fidelity SACD hybrid pressing. It's the album the ignited sea changes in pop culture, music, songwriting, poetry, and the social consciousness. It's the creation of a 22-year-old visionary still years away from casting a jaundiced eye to the media. It's the sound of change, the feeling of ground shifting beneath one's feet, and the entrance of an entirely new way of thinking. This is the very finest, most transparent digital stereo edition of The Freewheelin' Bob Dylan ever produced. Never before has the resonance of his nylon guitar strings, fingerpicked notes, shivering harmonica fills, or plainspoken timbre possessed such clarity, openness, body, or realism. Exponentially surpassing the potential he demonstrated on his debut, Dylan became a mirror of the concerns, issues, and feelings confronting the nation. Writing and singing with penetrating honesty, observational wit, moral conviction, and scathing emotion, he digs into the madness of war ("Masters of War," "A Hard Rain's A-Gonna Fall"), hypocrisy of segregation ("Oxford Town"), urgency of civil rights and freedom ("Blowin' in the Wind"), and multiple angles of unrequited love ("Girl From the North Country," "Don't Think Twice It's All Right") with a literate astuteness and depth that, nearly 50 years later, still leave audiences slack-jawed. Satire, absurdist humor, and traditional blues also pepper the album, which rests upon graceful melodies and sparse, poignant patterns. Viewed as protest songs, love songs, folk songs, or talking blues songs, the material on The Freewheelin' Bob Dylan remains amongst the most astonishing and imaginative ever committed to tape. It deserves-as much as you deserve-a fidelity that makes as closely intimate as possible the music's connection with you. You deserve this edition.

Dylan, Bob - Highway 61 Revisited SACD-Hybrid $39.99
Limited Mobile Fidelity SACD hybrid pressing. It's title references the road that spans North Minnesota to the Mississippi Delta, and the formative blues, country, and roots sounds connected to it's existence. The highway also lays claim to towering musical myths and deaths, many tied to the blues lexicon and narrative. All figure prominently on the revolutionary beacon that is Highway 61 Revisited, the 1965 set that overturned rules, upended preexisting limits, and utterly changed everything in it's path. Ranked the fourth-greatest album ever made by Rolling Stone, it's reach, power, and content boggle the mind nearly five decades after it's release. Teeming with organic energy, palpable voltage, and countless textures, the disc faithfully recreates the dimensions, vibes, and events associated with the six days Dylan and Co. Spent at Columbia's Studio A. Everything from the soundstages to dynamics, instrumental separation to balances, resonates with enormous might and insightful perspective. Recorded amidst a time of unfathomable turmoil and frustration that witnessed Dylan booed by fans, labeled a traitor, and call into question his work, Highway 61 Revisited roars and snarls, jabs and criticizes. It's bonfire of cynicism, fury, indignation, and absurdity forever transformed rock, what it could mean, and what it could do. Supported by a thundering, commanding band that included guitarist Mike Bloomfield and organist Al Kooper, Dylan hopscotches between tempos, moods, and melodies. The symmetry of the songs references a scattered hybrid of R&B, blues, folk, soul, gospel, vaudeville, and garage rock pieces that Dylan assembles in the shape of a brilliant, brain-teasing aural puzzle. At it's core, Highway 61 Revisited is about experience, reality, and the cruelties and truths that lie outside soporific safety nets and bourgeois ideals. These reasons - and the bold musicianship, ace performances, inimitable sonics, and vast lyrical expanses - are why the album means as much today as it did in the mid-1960s. Akin to Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band and Dark Side of the Moon, this is an album that everyone needs to own and hear in the best-possible fidelity. Don't delay.

Flying Burrito Brothers - Gilded Palace Of Sin SACD $35.99
The Gilded Palace of Sin is the first album by the country rock group The Flying Burrito Brothers, released in 1969. It continued Gram Parsons' and Chris Hillman's work in modern country music, fusing traditional sources like folk and country with other forms of popular music like gospel, soul, and psychedelic rock. The Gilded Palace of Sin is listed at number 192 in Rolling Stone magazine's 500 Greatest Albums of All Time.

On the occasion of it's 20th anniversary, the band releases the long-awaited concert movie A New Dawn. It documents the last stop of the tour in support of the Wanted album and that evening the Bavarians played in their hometown of Freising, Bavaria in October 2015. The show is an elaborately assembled combination of elements of a rock concert, a multimedia event and a play. This was the first and only time that the mammoth-production was brought to the stage. In addition to the musicians themselves the cast comprised around fifty actors and extras.

Cale, John - Live At Rockpalast With DVD, 4PC CD $22.99
Even today, JOHN CALE is renowned for having been a member of The Velvet Underground alongside Lou Reed, Maureen Tucker and Sterling Morrison. Though less known to many fans are his early collaborations with avant-garde musicians like John Cage or La Monte Young. His solo works have always been a mixture of classical influenced avant-garde, orchestral works and dynamic, experimental Rock. He has worked as a musician, producer (Nico, Patti Smith, Happy Mondays, to name a few) and arranger. His collaborations with artists such as Brian Eno, Kevin Ayers or Little Feat are legendary. When he was invited for the Rockpalast-Festival on October, 14th 1984, he had just released the desolate masterpiece "Music For A New Society" (1982), "Caribbean Sunset" (1983) and "John Cale Comes Alive" (1984). Compared to the official live album, JOHN CALE's performance at the Rockpalast was far more intense, desperate and wild. He performed the songs with a very hard edge, sometimes even deconstructed them ("Heartbreak Hotel"), receiving a mixed reaction from the audience, that just has survived performances of Level 24, Huey Lewis & The News and Chalice. When JOHN CALE appeared onstage it nearly was 3 o'clock in the morning, the atmosphere in the hall was as tense and menacing as the concert that followed. Up to this day, this performance remains one of the most spectacular concerts in the history of the Rockpalast-Series. In sharp contrast to this performance you will find a second concert at Zeche Bochum from 1983. Here you will find the more introverted JOHN CALE: a man and his piano performing his all-time-classics, including an extremely expressive version of "Fear Is A Man's Best Friend". Altogether, this set perfectly represents the many facettes of the JOHN CALE in the early 80s - it is a historic document which stands the test of time. Boxset with 2 DVDs and 2 CDs, booklet with fotos and linernotes.

Carrack, Paul - Original Album Collection Vol 2 UK Import, 5PC CD $22.99
Limited five CD set from the British blue-eyed soul vocalist. After the success of the Vol 1 Box comes Vol 2 of the Classic Album Collection. Spanning from Old New Borrowed and Blue to 2013's classic soul themed collection Rain or Shine the box comes in a slipcase and contains five albums housed in mini LP type sleeves. Paul Carrack, the hugely respected singer-songwriter who is the voice of many of the landmark British pop songs of the past 40 years, released a stunning new album, Soul Shadows, on January 15, 2016. The record sees him at the absolute peak of his powers as a vocalist, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist. Paul Carrack surely deserves the latter-day title of the hardest-working man in show business. Soul Shadows came in the wake of Carrack's latest sojourn as featured vocalist and keyboard player in Eric Clapton's band for his UK and international tour, the result of their longtime friendship and mutual respect. The new album was the follow-up to 2013's warmly-received Rain Or Shine, which maintained Paul's recurring status as a staple of the BBC Radio 2 playlist.

Grateful Dead - Road Trips, Vol. 4 No. 5 Boston Music Hall 3PC CD $53.99
It was our great honor at Real Gone Music to issue all 36 volumes of Dick's Picks, The Grateful Dead's landmark live concert series; over the four and a half years it took us to release all three dozen titles, we sometimes felt like we were on the greatest Dead tour ever, every single show a classic! Well, our diligence in releasing Dick's Picks has had a "Ripple" effect, for now the band is entrusting us with releasing it's subsequent live concert series, Road Trips! Unlike Dick's Picks, which saw about two-thirds of it's titles go to regular retail in their original incarnations, NONE of the entries in the Road Trips series were offered to retail outlets outside of the Dead's own website. The Road Trips series was also a little different from Dick's Picks in that the early volumes assembled tracks from different shows on the same tour, while later volumes presented single shows. Since it worked so well with Dick's Picks, we are reissuing the last titles first, and we have enlisted the series' original designer, Steve Vance, to convert the original wallet packaging to customer-friendly triple-CD jewel cases. Another cache of brilliant live Dead, finally available in record stores!

Kayak - Journey Through Time: Complete Studio Album Collection Boxed Set, Holland - Import, 21PC CD $109.99
Limited 21 CD set from the Dutch progressive rockers. This box holds the band's sixteen studio album (including three double albums) and two bonus CD's with non-album tracks, rarities and demo's. One of the bonus CD's most remarkable items is 'Happy New Year', a Kayak demo dating from '74 or '75, that has never been released. There are several Kayak-related tracks like the singe 'Fluffy'/ 'White Walls' (1970) by High Tide Formation (with Pim Koopman, Ton Scherpenzeel, Chiel van Praag and Ron v.d. Werff). Then there's an outstanding collection of no less than eight home-recorded demos of previously unreleased material by Pim, Ton, Johan Slager and Carwin Gijsing under the name of Ten Ride Ticket. The Plan (with Ton and the Kay-ettes) are represented by their 1982 single If This Ain't Love/Hit Bottom. Finally we mention the version of 'I Want You To Be Mine' that in 1978 took Kayak to the USA Top 50. Worth mentioning is the fact that an empty wallet has included an for the yet to be released album Seventeen, which enables the true Kayak collector to really complete this unique album set. Albums have been remastered from the original studio master tapes.

Marillion - Misplaced Childhood (Deluxe Edition)(4CD w/ Blu-Ray) 5PC CD $54.99
As openings go, they don't come any more enigmatic than the one that ushers in Marillion's third album, 'Misplaced Childhood'.

The British Invasion contains 122 influential British tracks in all spread over eight CDs. Also includes a full-color, 24-page booklet chronicling this unprecedented and unparalleled period of music history. Bold new sounds and influences from overseas turned into a social and cultural phenomenon that transformed pop culture in the '60s. From 1964 to the end of the decade, American shores were invaded by British forces-designers, actors, singers and musicians-all armed with sophisticated style and accents and all of them marvelously and exotically "foreign." Dominating the airwaves were tunes from some of the greatest British rock and pop legends. Musical acts ranging from buoyant pop to harder-edged rock plus the most impressive guitar band in rock music climbed the charts and changed not only what Americans listened to, but also how we thought, dressed and lived. Time Life put together the essential music collection that celebrates this new sound that captured our hearts: The British Invasion. Includes tracks by Eric Burdon and the Animals, The Kinks, Herman's Hermits, The Who, The Beatles, Gerry and the Pacemakers, Rod Stewart, The Mindbenders, Elton John, The Troggs, Marianne Faithful, The Yardbirds, Deep Purple, The Spencer Davis Group, Chad & Jeremy, Mott the Hoople, Peter & Gordon and many others.

Anathema - Optimist CD $14.99
Anathema - Optimist 2PC CD $15.99

Formed in the mid 90s, they have risen to become one of the UK's most cherished and critically acclaimed rock bands.

Argent, Rod - Red House CD $16.99
Reissue of this 1988 album from the musician best known for his work with The Zombies and Argent. Rod Argent is an English musician, singer, songwriter, composer, and record producer. An uncredited internet pundit on the One Good Song blog, writes: "This comes off as a new age movie soundtrack, but a good new age movie soundtrack. It's mostly instrumental, and mostly done on synthesizers - even the drums sound like drum machines - augmented by occasional sax, guitar (Clem Clempson, ex-Humble Pie), or bass (Mo Foster, ex-Jeff Beck). Argent scat sings on "Salvation Song" and delivers fantastic soul vocals on "Helpless" and "Baby Don't You Cry". He'd been doing movie and TV scores for years at this point, and he really had the form figured out.

Atomic Rooster - Devil's Answer - Atomic Rooster CD $16.99
CD reissue. Atomic Rooster was an English progressive rock band originally composed of former members of the The Crazy World of Arthur Brown. Throughout their history keyboardist Vincent Crane was the only constant member and wrote the majority of their material. Their history is defined by two periods: the early-mid-1970s and the early 1980s. Their genre in music is difficult to define since they went through radical changes in very short times during the life of the band. However, their best-known era represented a more hard rock/progressive rock sound. This CD is a collection of the band's radio broadcasts: tracks 1-2 recorded in session for Mike Harding Show 26.5.70; track 3 recorded in session for John Peel 14.1.71; tracks 4-5 recorded in session for Mike Harding 22.3.71; tracks 6-7 recorded in session for Johnnie Walker 12.6.72; tracks 8-9 recorded in session for Johnnie Walker 7.12.72; tracks 10-12 recorded in session 16.10.81; and tracks 13-15 recorded in session for Live 27.7.72.

Big Big Train - Second Brightest Star UK Import CD $18.99
2017 release from the progressive rock outfit. The Second Brightest Star is a companion album to Folklore and Grimspound and features seven new songs (about 40 minutes) which "explore landscapes, rivers and meeting places and take the listener on voyages of discovery across the world and to the stars." In addition, the release will comes with a bonus selection of 30 minutes of music (named 'Grimlore') where songs from Folklore and Grimspound are presented in extended format. "The Second Brightest Star is the last album in a cycle of releases which started back in 2009 with The Underfall Yard album. Our writing over this period has focused on the English landscape, the people that work on the land and their folklore stories. The band will be moving on to different landscapes and subjects in future years as we play more shows outside of England. But we had a few more stories left to tell and wanted to bring them together on The Second Brightest Star.

Blake, Tim - Caldea Music II: Remastered Edition UK Import CD $18.99
Digitally remastered edition of Caldea Music II, the 2002 album by Tim Blake. Tim first came to prominence as a member of Gong, where his synthesizer experimentation and mastery was demonstrated on albums such as Flying Teapot, Angel's Egg and You. He would also join Hawkwind from 1979 - 1980 and from November 2007. After departing Gong in 1975 he teamed up with French lighting designer Patrice Warrener to form Crystal Machine, pioneering the use of lasers and synthesizers in a live setting. Blake's debut solo album, Crystal Machine, was originally released in 1977 on the French experimental label Egg. Tim followed this with Blake's New Jerusalem in 1978. Unlike his previous work, the album featured songs and the lengthy title-track would dominate the album's second side. Tim Blake joined Hawkwind in 1979 and remained with the group for just over a year before returning to France and moving away from music. In 2002 Tim recorded and released Caldea Music II, a work especially commissioned by the Caldea Spa centre in Andorra. The album saw Tim return to his purely instrumental roots, cited by some as a modern equivalent of his classic Crystal Machine album. Recorded once again at his Windmill studio, the album featured wonderfully evocative music and guest appearances by Christian Boule (Glissando Guitar) and Konan Mevel (Catalan Bagpipes, Flute).

Blake, Tim - Tide Of The Century: Remastered Edition UK Import CD $18.99
Esoteric Recordings are pleased to announce the release of a newly re-mastered edition of "The Tide of the Century", the 2000 album by Tim Blake.

He would also join Hawkwind from 1979 - 1980 and from November 2007.

Bloomfield, Michael - Don't Say That I Ain't Your Man UK Import, 2PC CD $13.99
Two CD set. Mike Bloomfield was an American guitarist and composer, born in Chicago, Illinois, who knew and played with many of Chicago's blues legends before achieving his own fame popularizing blues music in the mid-1960s. Notably, he played a significant role in helping to launch the "electric" Bob Dylan, playing on most of the Highway 61 Revisited album and performing with Dylan at the 1965 Newport Folk Festival. He was ranked #22 on Rolling Stone's list of 100 Greatest Guitarists of All Time in 2003 and #42 by the same magazine in 2011. He was inducted into the Blues Hall of Fame in 2012 and, as a member of the Paul Butterfield Blues Band, the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2015. Don't Say That I Ain't Your Man: Essential Blues, 1964-1969 is an anthology that includes five songs from Bloomfield's original 1964 Columbia sessions produced by John Hammond. The remaining ten tracks move from his contributions to the Paul Butterfield Blues Band and Electric Flag, to his collaborations with Al Kooper, as well as some late-'60s solo material.

Bonnet, Graham - Live Here Comes The Night 2PC CD $15.99
Legendary rock vocalist Graham Bonnet is back with a new live album and home video captured during his acclaimed performance at Frontiers Rock Festival III in Trezzo (Milan, Italy) on April 24, 2016. - Accompanied by a stellar band featuring founding member Beth-Ami Heavenstone on bass, South American guitar sensation Conrado Pesinato on lead guitar, and Mark Zonder (known for his work with Warlord and Fates Warning) on drums, Bonnet masterfully delivered a thrilling "Best of" set which included songs from his stints with bands such as Rainbow, McAuley Schenker Group, Alcatrazz, Impellitteri, and of course his solo material too. - Bonnet says: "It's been a very long time since I last released a live video, 33 years to be exact, with Alcatrazz. Myself and the band were very excited to film and record our performance at the Frontiers Rock Festival for a live album and video and are very happy with the final result!"

Brecker Brothers - Heaven Detente - Holland - Import CD $15.99

Buckingham, Lindsey & Christine Mcvie - Lindsey Buckingham Christine Mcvie CD $15.99
2017 release. Longtime members of Fleetwood Mac, Lindsey Buckingham and Christine McVie have joined together to record their first-ever album as a duo. The Mac bandmates rediscovered their creative bond after McVie rejoined the group's lineup in 2014. The album offers what both partners see as the sensible - and long-overdue - culmination of a long-term partnership. "We were exploring a creative process, and the identity of the project took on a life organically," explains Buckingham. "The body of work felt like it was meant to be a duet album. We acknowledged that to each other on many occasions, and said to ourselves, 'what took us so long?'" "We've always written well together, Lindsey and I," adds McVie. "This has just spiraled into something really amazing that we've done between us." Tracked in Los Angeles, Lindsey Buckingham/Christine McVie serves as a de facto Fleetwood Mac album of sorts; although singer Stevie Nicks was not involved, the duo worked with Mac rhythm section Mick Fleetwood and John McVie, adding their distinctive "dynamic rhythmic engine" to the 10-song set.

Burdon, Eric & the Animals - Every One Of Us Holland - Import CD $15.99
CD reissue. The late sixties were the experimental years in 'pop' music, the years of flower power and psychedelica, the years of Jefferson Airplane and The Doors in the U.S.A. and The Move, The Animals and Sgt. Pepper in the U.K. The traditional two minute songs made place for stretched out tracks which could become up to a full LP sized 20 minute marathon. With Every One Of Us, originally released in 1968 on MGM records, Eric Burdon did his part in bringing music to a new level never heard before. Famous for many big hits in the mid 60's like 'House Of The Rising Sun' and 'It's My Life' Burdon, with Zoot Money on the Hammond, surprised the music world with this top psychedelic blues album.

Byrne, David - Live From Austin, TX With DVD, 2PC CD $17.99
David Byrne is a modern renaissance man - and that's not just a cliché. From the heady days as co-founder of the celebrated art new-wave group Talking Heads (1976-88) through his own constantly evolving and innovative solo music career, he has pursued his muse on many different artistic fronts. He's been the driving force behind a body of work that has been both intellectually daring and commercially successful... and he shows no signs of slowing down decades later. This show, captured on November 28, 2001, came on the heels of his hit single, Like Humans Do and the release of the album Look Into The Eyeball, which was another typically eclectic musical stew reflecting a variety of styles and influences, from Philly soul to a D.C. Go-Go inspired groove and his first-ever Spanish composition, Desconocido Soy. Critics at the time called it his best work in years, and his performance on the Austin City Limits stage shows why. Joined by Austin's own eclectic tango ensemble Tosca, Byrne takes us down many different musical roads in his ACL debut. Of course, besides the brilliant songwriter and performer that he is, he's also an accomplished performance artist, photographer, web journalist, film writer / director, composer of motion picture soundtracks, and founder of his own world music label, Luaka Bop Records. He also has a collection of Grammys, Oscars and Golden Globes on his mantel. His music may be complex and poetic, but he makes no bones about his ultimate intent: I want to move people to dance and cry at the same time. - Terry Lickona (Producer Austin City Limits).

Caligula's Horse - Tide The Thief & River's End Germany - Import CD $20.99

Can - Singles CD $16.99
Can were enormously influential on forward-thinking rock artists (their fingerprints are all over Radiohead, The Flaming Lips, Public Image Limited, Pavement, Mars Volta, The Jesus & Mary Chain) as well as crate dig hip-hop culture (sampled by the likes of Kanye West, A Tribe Called Quest, Earl Sweatshirt, Spank Rock), but one question persists: Where do you start? This unique document is the first time Can's singles have been presented together and shows the breadth of their influential career, includes cuts dating back to 1970, such as 'Soul Desert' and 'She Brings The Rain', as well as out of print single edits of tracks like "Halleluwah," "Vitamin C" and "I Want More" until the band's breakup in 1988. It also includes rare singles such as 'Silent Night' and a 7" cut of 'Turtles Have Short Legs' (originally recorded during the sessions for Tago Mago from 1971).

Captain Beefheart & His Magic Band - Trout Mask House Sessions 1969 CD $16.99
CD reissue. Zappa granted Beefheart unrestrained artistic freedom in making 1969's Trout Mask Replica, which ranked 58th in Rolling Stone magazine's 2003 list of the 500 greatest albums of all time. Van Vliet has been described as '... one of modern music's true innovators' with '... a singular body of work virtually unrivalled in it's daring and fluid creativity.' Although he achieved little commercial or mainstream critical success, he sustained a cult following as a 'highly significant' and 'incalculable' influence on an array of New Wave, punk, post-punk, experimental and alternative rock musicians. Known for his enigmatic personality and relationship with the public, Van Vliet made few public appearances after his retirement from music (and from his Beefheart persona) in 1982. He pursued a career in art, an interest that originated in his childhood talent for sculpture, and a venture that proved to be his most financially secure. His expressionist paintings and drawings command high prices and have been exhibited in art galleries and museums across the world. Van Vliet died in 2010, having suffered from multiple sclerosis for many years. The Captain had a notoriously sadomasochistic with some of his musicians especially during the recording of the album usually considered to be his greatest work Trout Mask Replica. Here, you can listen to some of those peculiar sessions for yourself!

Chilton, Alex - Baton Rouge 1985 CD $17.99
ALEX CHILTON - Baton Rouge 1985 - Klondike proudly presents the entire Louisiana Public Broadcast (WLPB) of Alex Chilton, live from the VFW Hall in Baton Rouge, Louisiana on September 27th 1985. With shades of Syd Barrett and other Anglophile figures, Chilton's adoption of obscure blues, R&B, soul and the American songbook provided an interesting and provocative return to form with 1985's Feudalist Tarts E.P. Here, Chilton's famed excesses are firmly denied, as he delivers a blistering set with all the Big Star trademarks firmly intact.

Clear Blue Sky - Clear Blue Sky: Remastered Edition UK Import CD $18.99
Digitally remastered and fully restored edition of the classic self-titled album by progressive power trio Clear Blue Sky, originally released on the Vertigo label in 1970. Clear Blue Sky came together in the late 1960s in Acton, West London. Comprising John Simms (guitar, vocals), Ken White (drums) and Mark Sheather (bass), the band came to the attention of musician and producer Patrick Campbell-Lyons (of the UK band Nirvana) in 1970. In a role as A&R man for Philips' "progressive" label, Vertigo, he signed the trio to the label and produced their self-titled album the same year. The release features an illustrated booklet, previously unseen photographs (courtesy of John Simms), an essay and interviews with John Simms and Patrick Campbell-Lyons and fully restores the albums original artwork.

Coryell, Larry - At The Village Gate CD $15.99
Larry Coryell unexpectedly passed away earlier this year right after our Real Gone reissue of his second solo album, Coryell, and with the renewed attention given to his monumental recorded legacy, we decided to move up our long-in-the-works domestic CD debut of his album At the Village Gate in order to expose this classic record to the largest audience possible. This is the recording where Larry really went axe-to-axe with Jimi Hendrix, who had passed away four months prior to the January 1971 gigs that formed the basis of this release; perhaps in response, Coryell formed his own power trio of his own composed of himself, drummer Harry Wilkinson, and bassist Mervin Bronson to play material that stylistically wasn't too far removed from the funk/jazz/rock of Jimi's Band of Gypsys. The result was a fan favorite that somehow has never been issued on CD in the U.S. (and came out overseas over a decade ago on a couple of lightly-distributed labels of suspect provenance). Coryell's Gibson 400 has seldom sounded as slashing as it does here, while Wilkinson's playing (aptly described as "busy" by Downbeat) is a cross between Mitch Mitchell, Tony Williams, and Buddy Miles; Bronson keeps things rooted when Coryell heads for the stratosphere. Which is often... this is maybe the most "heroic" of this underappreciated guitar hero's records. Mike Milchner's remastering captures every coruscating note, and Bill Kopp's liner notes feature an interview with drummer Wilkinson. One of the truly great jazz-rock guitarists, loud, free 'n' fiery.

Coryell, Larry's 11th House - Seven Secrets CD $16.99
2017 release, the final recording by legendary jazz fusion pioneers Larry Coryell and Alphonse Mouton in the reformed the Eleventh House. The late guitarist Coryell assembled founding members Randy Brecker (trumpet), long-timer John Lee (bass), the addition of son Julian (guitar) and the late Alphonse Mouzon (drums) to bring the rock and funk back to jazz again with a batch of eleven powerhouse tracks. The album is truly a group effort with Coryell relying on each member to contribute compositions to the new album (much like he did back in the 70's).

Cosmograf - Hay-Man Dreams UK Import CD $22.99

Dauner, Wolfgang & Flo - Elektronische Mythen CD $11.99

Davis, Miles - Cinema Of Miles Davis UK Import CD $15.99
UK collection. The Cinema of Miles Davis showcases superior examples of the use of the great jazz trumpeter's music in film. This edition includes his first complete score, sultry and improvised, for Elevator To the Gallows - Louis Malle's directorial debut starring the eternal Jeanne Moreau - which came in late 1957, a decisive time for Miles; marking the ending of his hard-bop period and anticipating the modal phase that would culminate in A Kind of Blue. With Parker and Dizzy Gillespie and Monk, Davis' music was central to the aesthetic of the Beat Generation so it is unsurprising to find it featured in documentaries on the life and work of both Jack Kerouac and Lenny Bruce. These iconic men of words considered their art to be a form of jazz with the latter referring to his voice as his "Horn". During the nineties, the Spanish director Pedro Almodóvar deployed powerful and ornate Gil Evans compositions, performed by Miles and inspired by flamenco, in High Heels and Flower of My Secret. Elsewhere, the incomparable Blue in Green appears in Sally Potter's passionate, Cold War meets the Sexual Revolution drama, Ginger & Rosa, while Miles' reading of the Eden Ahbez masterpiece Nature Boy, is heard under Mediterranean skies in Anthony Minghella's interpretation of Patricia Highsmith's The Talented Mr. Ripley.

Quiet Life is an album of ten beautifully crafted Progressive songs of the highest quality and is the band's finest album to date.

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

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

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

Ono, Yoko - Feeling The Space CD $15.99

It's liner notes parody adult advertising, giving the telephone numbers, birthdates and vital statistics of the male band members. (John Lennon appears as "John O'Cean", with his number listed as "Not for Sale").

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

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

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

The former being released in 1989 and the latter being released in 1990.

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

Westbrook, Mike - Live 1972 UK Import CD $19.99

Young, Neil - Decade CD $19.99
Two CDs. Digitally remastered edition. Decade is a compilation by Neil Young, originally released in 1977 as a triple album. It contains 35 of Young's songs recorded between 1966 and 1976, among them five tracks that had been unreleased up to that point. It peaked at #43 on the Billboard Top Pop Albums chart, and was certified platinum by the RIAA in 1986. Compiled by Young himself, with his hand-written liner notes about each track, Decade represents almost every album from his career and various affiliations through 1977 with the exception of Four Way Street and Time Fades Away. Of the previously unreleased songs, "Down to the Wire" features the New Orleans pianist Dr. John with Buffalo Springfield on an item from their shelved Stampede album; "Love Is a Rose" was a minor hit for Linda Ronstadt in 1975; "Winterlong" received a cover by Pixies on the Neil Young tribute album from 1989, The Bridge; and "Campaigner" is a Young song critical of Richard Nixon. The track "Long May You Run" is a different mix to that found on the album of the same name, featuring the harmonies of the full Crosby Stills & Nash before David Crosby and Graham Nash left the recording sessions.

Zorn, John - Midsummer Moons CD $15.99



SACDs

Blue Cheer - Vincebus Eruptum SACD $28.99
Many have drawn a line from '70s metal back to the thunderous rocking blues of late-'60s Blue Cheer. Bands engaged in experimental rock, garage, stoner rock and grunge owe a debt to this San Francisco group, too; they exploded onto the charts in '68 with this #11 LP and their hit spin on "Summertime Blues. Blue Cheer originally formed in 1966 in San Francisco, California as a sextet. This early line-up did not last though as numerous members departed soon after. Vocalist and bassist Dickie Peterson (R. I. P) then reformed the group with guitarist Leigh Stephens and drummer Paul Whaley, in the process becoming the dynamic trio it is now known as today. According to research, the group's name was taken from a potent form of LSD that was derived from a laundry detergent (supposedly called "Blue Cheer"). In 1968 Blue Cheer released their first album, "Vincebus Eruptum" (some say the title is Latin for "controlled chaos" or "conquering explosion" while others say it is a nonexistent term). On this album Blue Cheer radiates extreme decibels of noise by turning up the volume to maximum capacity on their monolithic wall of Marshall amplifiers. " Their sonic assaults-which also include "Parchman Farm," "Rock Me Baby," "Doctor Please" and more-come through with stunning clarity on this hybrid SACD, available now in a limited, numbered edition! Audio Fidelity.

Dylan, Bob - Times They Are A-changin' SACD-Hybrid $39.99
Limited Mobile Fidelity SACD hybrid pressing. Immediately distinguished by the you're-either-with-us-or-against-us messages of the landmark title track, Bob Dylan's The Times They Are A-Changin' sounds an unmistakable clarion call on behalf of progress and it's unstoppable advancement. One of the Bard's trademark songs, it remains a timeless anthem with a clear sense of common purpose, a musical line in the sand that helped unite various social movements and multiple generations. The reverential 1964 record feeds off the opening tune and it's unmistakable sentiments, marching forward to confront racism, poverty, injustice, and upheaval in a stark, immediate manner unlike few albums before or since. Marking a shift from the looseness and comedy that pepper the preceding The Freewheelin' Bob Dylan, The Times They Are A-Changin' skirts any attempt at humor, sarcasm, or goofiness in favor of utmost seriousness and severity. Seemingly anticipating the dark events surrounding President Kennedy's assassination and the turmoil that followed, Dylan eliminates with conjecture and disguise. Akin to dispatches from the typewriter of literary icons John Steinbeck and William Faulkner, his songs give voices to the voiceless, challenge cultural precepts, upend traditional beliefs with rapier wit and truths, and underline tragedies swept under the rug. As correctly relayed by Dylan expert and cultural critic Greil Marcus, "[The record] forever fixed Bob Dylan in the popular imagination: the protest singer, the young man 'able to see through metal' (again, from Chronicles), to see through the lie and find the truth, then to hammer the truth into words and send them out with a voice that would never break."

Procol Harum - Salty Dog SACD $39.99
Limited numbered hybrid SACD from Mobile Fidelity. Mastered from original master tapes. Procol Harum stood apart for it's aptitude to blend classical figures with rock motifs without coming across as self-indulgent or contrived. Graced with commanding mood pieces, the group's 1969 album - appointed with evocative artwork that pays homage to the Player's Navy Cut logo - exhibits the band's distinctive talents and genre-jumping breadth with an idyllic fusion of performance, composition, and sound.

Spirit - Family That Plays Together SACD $28.99
The Family That Plays Together was originally released in December 1968. On this, the second Spirit album, the group put all of the elements together that made them the legendary band that they were. More than it's predecessor, Spirit, their self-titled and surreal debut, The Family That Plays Together displays the band's ability to play beyond the genre of psychedelic rock. Jazz, rock & roll, and even classical elements combined to create one of the cleanest, most tasteful syntheses of it's day. The group had also improved measurably from their fine debut album, especially in the area of vocals. The album's hit single, "I Got a Line on You," boasts especially strong harmonies as well as one of the greatest rock riffs of the period. - The album's title was inspired by the stepson-stepfather relationship between guitarist Randy California and percussionist Ed Cassidy. The album cover was shot at the Sunset Highland Motel, located at 6830 Sunset Boulevard in Hollywood, California, just across from Hollywood High School. - Spirit's songs covered about every subject under the sun. The first half of the recording is a wonderful and seamless suite, and taken in it's entirety, one of the greatest sides on Los Angeles rock. The SACD includes some excellent bonus tracks. "So Little to Say" is one of Jay Ferguson's finest compositions ever, and the jazz-inspired instrumentals such as "Fog" and "Space Chile" showcase pianist John Locke as one of the most inspired and lyrical players in the rock idiom. All in all, a classic album and a true landmark. - Tracks such as "It Shall Be" and "Silky Sam" demonstrate the ease with which the ensemble can incorporate jazz into their idiosyncratic form of rock, while "Jewish" and "Aren't You Glad" show the band's competence in exploiting both world music and jam rock.

Spirit - Spirit SACD $28.99

Stealers Wheel - Stealers Wheel SACD $35.99
'Stuck in the Middle Top-Ten Hit Single in the UK and US! FM Radio Classic Stuck in the Middle Immortalized in Quentin Tarantino's Reservoir Dogs! 'K-Billy's Super Sounds of the '70s weekend just keeps on truckin'...' The short but legendary recording career of Stealers Wheel is defined by the pinnacle reached with it's first two albums. Listening to this extraordinary debut effort it's easy to hear why many thought Gerry Rafferty and Joe Egan's Stealer's Wheel would become the UK's answer to Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young. The duo's distinctive style is in full evidence, marrying ultra-catchy hooks and melodies to thoughtful lyrics and gorgeous vocal harmonies. As a band, Stealers Wheel was already disintegrating even as it was being formed. Players were being shifted in and out of the lineup right up to the recording sessions for this debut record, and leader Gerry Rafferty split from the band before the LP's official release (see the vintage video for 'Stuck in the Middle' below, with Egan miming the lead vocal in Rafferty's absence!). However, as 'Stuck in the Middle' streaked up the charts in the US and the UK, peaking at #6 in the US, Rafferty came back and the band eventually became Rafferty and Egan with backing players in the studio and on tour. Songs from Stealers Wheel's stellar first pair of LPs have gotten steady airplay since they were released, and of course Gerry Rafferty's breakout success with his solo album City to City shined a bright light on his earlier efforts. Stealers Wheel became an indelible element of pop culture for new generations when maverick director Quentin Tarantino built a major set piece of his own debut Reservoir Dogs around the infectious hooks of 'Stuck in the Middle.' The scene is as grisly as it is unforgettable and of course it's set up brilliantly by Steven Wright's voice as the world's dryest DJ Format: SACD, Hybrid, Stereo, Remastered:

Gary's Stash

These are from my own collection that I'm letting go at a nice price. As I go through my collection, I'm finding a LOT of unnecessary duplication as well as some titles that just aren't my cup of tea. The list below is just the start. I'll add to the list as time goes on. The prices below are good only on existing supplies and in most cases, that means just ONE COPY!  Sorry.  Also some of these are promos and so may be in alternate packaging, have holes punched in bar codes or creases in tray cards, etc.

The Anonymous Collection

Anonymous, who is one of your fellow Artist Shop Newsletter subscribers, has decided that he now has more music in his collection than he can ever listen to in a lifetime and has decided to break the ties to a large part of it and use it to donate all his proceeds to charity.  In his mother's memory, part of that will go to the American Cancer Society. Also benefiting will be the St. Jude Children's Reasearch Hospital and the George Harrison Fund for UNICEF.  (BTW, if anyone else out there has a large collection that needs curating, feel free to drop me a note.)
