White Willow/Future Hopes ....CD $16.99

White Willow/Future Hopes ....CD $16.99

White Willow's 2017 album - its first since 2011's Terminal Twilight - sees the Norwegians exploring some of the most 'progressive' territory the band has ever ventured into, with several lengthy tracks, complex instrumental passages, and a heavy use of synthesizers, including the unique textures of the Yamaha CS80.  The Future Hopes lineup - with multi-instrumentalists Jacob Holm-Lupo and Mattias Olsson at the core - sees the return of several White Willow stalwarts, including flautist Ketil Einarsen (Jaga Jazzist, Motorpsycho), keyboardist Lars Fredrik Froislie (Wobbler, Tusmorke), and bassist Ellen Andrea Wang (Pixel, Manu Katche Quartet). New arrival Venke Knutson is best known in her native Norway for a string of Top 10 solo hits and is a revelation in the fresh context of WW.  The striking artwork by Roger Dean has been specially commissioned for the album.

Vangelis/L'Apocalypse Des Animaux ....import CD $12.99

Vangelis/L'Apocalypse Des Animaux ....import CD $12.99

Digitally remastered edition of this album from the Greek composer and musician. L'Apocalypse des Animaux is a soundtrack album by Vangelis. The album's music accompanied a documentary series about the animal kingdom directed by Frederic Rossif that was first broadcast on French TV in 1970.

Vangelis/Earth ....import CD $15.99

Vangelis/Earth ....import CD $15.99

Digitally remastered edition of this album from the Greek composer and musician. Earth is the third solo album by Vangelis, originally released in 1973. The album was promoted by a concert, held in Paris, at the Olympia Theatre in February 1974.

Vangelis/China ....import CD $12.99

Vangelis/China ....import CD $12.99

Digitally remastered edition of this album from the Greek composer and musician. China is a studio album by Vangelis, originally released in 1979. Although he had never been to China, he employed Chinese instruments and compositional styles on this concept album. It was thematically ahead of it's time as the eastern cultural concepts were mostly unknown to the western audiences. It is one of his critically most acclaimed solo studio albums.

Vangelis/Opera Sauvage ....import CD $12.99

Vangelis/Opera Sauvage ....import CD $12.99

Digitally remastered edition of this album from the Greek composer and musician. Opera Sauvage is a soundtrack album by Vangelis, released in 1979. It is the score for the nature documentary of the same title by French filmmaker Frederic Rossif. It is considered as one of Vangelis best albums, and it is his second most successful album in the USA.

Vangelis/See You Later ....import CD $15.99

Vangelis/See You Later ....import CD $15.99

Digitally remastered edition of this album from the Greek composer and musician. See You Later is an album by Vangelis, released in 1980. It breaks quite violently with the style he had employed in the late 1970s and later, relying much more on vocals and being more experimental and returning (in many respects) to his early 1970s work like Earth or 666. It was never released in the United States, and is one of his rarest albums.

Vangelis/Antarctica ....import CD $15.99

Vangelis/Antarctica ....import CD $15.99

Digitally remastered edition of this album from the Greek composer and musician. Antarctica is a soundtrack album originally released in 1983. It is the score to the 1983 Japanese film Antarctica directed by Koreyoshi Kurahara and was nominated by the Japan Academy for Best Music Score. The synthesizers on "Theme from Antarctica" conjure cold and desolation. "Antarctica Echoes" has minimal melody showing the vastness of the landscape. "Song of White" is cold-sounding, while "The Other Side of Antartica" has sinister sound. "Deliverance" is the theme which plays in the end of the film.."

Vangelis/Soil Festivities ....import CD $12.99

Vangelis/Soil Festivities ....import CD $12.99

Digitally remastered edition of this album from the Greek composer and musician. This 1984 release was the first in what could be very loosely said to belong to a trilogy of his 80's albums, the other two being Invisible Connections and Mask, both from the following year (1985). It is a concept album which derived inspiration from the natural elements, life processes taking place on the Earth's surface and beneath our feet. He recalls that it "was made because I wanted to make music, not sell a million records. I don't think it's possible to guarantee commercial success for an album anyway, because nobody really knows what is commercial and what isn't. Even if I went out of my way to make an album that was more accessible to the public, that would not guarantee it's commercial success."

Vangelis/Mask ....import CD $12.99

Vangelis/Mask ....import CD $12.99

Digitally remastered edition of this album from the Greek composer and musician. Mask is a 1985 album by Vangelis. It was the last album he produced while living in London, and also the last he produced for the Polydor label. It is dramatic work in six movements, with somewhat dark mood and classical style which branches into ethnic styles. The album reached #69 position in the UK album charts.

Vangelis/Invisible Connections ....import CD $12.99

Vangelis/Invisible Connections ....import CD $12.99

Digitally remastered edition of this album from the Greek composer and musician. Invisible Connections is a 1985 album by Vangelis. One of his most experimental albums, Invisible Connections is quite different from the majority of Vangelis's work. Despite this, it can very loosely be said to belong to a trilogy of his '80s albums, the other two being Soil Festivities from 1984, and Mask from the same year as Invisible Connections. These all feature a willingness of the artist, at this time, to experiment with not only music itself, but his own album release-patterns, as the content differs so markedly from the style he was known for, up to this point. In fact, it may be that he was deliberately, and consciously, returning to a style he began in 1978, when he released Beaubourg, an album which is as experimental as Invisible Connections.

Jon & Vangelis/Short Stories ....import CD $12.99

Jon & Vangelis/Short Stories ....import CD $12.99

Digitally remastered edition of this album from Yes vocalist Jon Anderson and Greek composer and musician Vangelis. Short Stories is the 1980 debut album by Jon and Vangelis. This was not the first time that the two had worked together: Vangelis had auditioned to be Rick Wakeman's replacement in Yes in 1974 while Jon had contributed guest vocals to Vangelis' album Heaven and Hell.

Jon & Vangelis/Friends of Mr Cairo ....import CD $15.99

Jon & Vangelis/Friends of Mr Cairo ....import CD $15.99

Digitally remastered edition of this album from Yes vocalist Jon Anderson and Greek composer and musician Vangelis. The Friends of Mr Cairo is the second album by Jon and Vangelis, released in 1981. The title track, "The Friends of Mr. Cairo," peaked at #1 on the Canadian singles chart in late 1981. The track and it's accompanying music video serve as an ode to classic Hollywood films of the 1930s and 1940s. Most notable references are to the classic film noir The Maltese Falcon. The track incorporates sound effects and voice impressions of the stars of the era, most notably Humphrey Bogart, Sydney Greenstreet, Peter Lorre, and Jimmy Stewart.

Jon & Vangelis/Private Collection ....import CD $15.99

Jon & Vangelis/Private Collection ....import CD $15.99

Digitally remastered edition of this album from Yes vocalist Jon Anderson and Greek composer and musician Vangelis. Private Collection is the third album released by Jon and Vangelis, released in 1983 on Polydor Records. "He Is Sailing" was released as a single shortly before the album. The song "Polonaise" was written under the influence of events that took place in Poland a little earlier (martial law). The song is dedicated to the people of Poland.

Rick Wakeman/Crimes of Passion ....CD $16.99

Rick Wakeman/Crimes of Passion ....CD $16.99

Richard Christopher "Rick" Wakeman (born 18 May 1949) is an English 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. An Internet pundit identifying themselves only as 'Omnes' writes: "By adapting Dvorak's New World symphony into this wicked and erotic soundtrack consisted of saxophone and synthesizer, Rick Wakeman gives this movie the perfect touch to this satire both of the American dream and of the world of prostitution, showing both the strangeness and scary atmosphere in this kind of business. Although I loved all those tracks, I have to say that my three favorites were the It's a Lovely Life with Maggie Bell - for it's craziness and it's excellent musical rhythm - the romantic Stax -with it's excellent saxophone and erotic vocals - and also The Box - a very violent instrumental track - which involves a very controversial but crucial scene that was only shown in the unrated DVD release of this movie. Though I wished they could have put more tracks such as the funny song that Anthony Perkins character sings to Joanne Crane in her apartment or the erotic track played while Bobby sees China Blue in her waitress outfit, I was very pleased by this purchase which also allowed me to discover more of Rick Wakeman's work.

Rick Wakeman/Simply Accoustic ....import CD + DVD $18.99

Rick Wakeman/Simply Accoustic ....import CD + DVD $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.

Todd Rundgren/White Knight ....CD $14.99

Todd Rundgren/White Knight ....CD $14.99

Rundgren launches a major US tour April-June with dates in New York, St. Louis, Cleveland, and elsewhere!

Captain Beefheart & His Magic Band/Trout Mask House Sessions 1969 ....import CD $17.99

Captain Beefheart & His Magic Band/Trout Mask House Sessions 1969 ....import CD $17.99

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 driving relationship with 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!

Faust/Fresh Air ....CD $17.99

Faust/Fresh Air ....CD $17.99

faUSt has recorded a new album. It is entitled "Fresh Air" and differs in several respects from its predecessor "Just Us," from the year 2014. At the time, the recordings were made at Peron's rehearsal studio in Schiphorst in northern Germany, hypnotic pieces with the kind of noisemaking the band is known for. For the new album, Peron and Diermaier were looking for communication with musician friends and the audience. The tracks were recorded in changing ensembles at changing locations in the USA (during a 28-day tour in March/April 2016).

Atomic Rooster/Devil's Answer ....import CD $17.99

Atomic Rooster/Devil's Answer ....import CD $17.99

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.

Bert Jansch/Living in the Shadows Pt 2: On the Edge of a Dream ....4 CD Box Set $46.99

Bert Jansch/Living in the Shadows Pt 2: On the Edge of a Dream ....4 CD Box Set $46.99

Four CD set. Following on from Earth's definitive collection of Jansch's 1990s works, Living in the Shadows Part 2: On the Edge of a Dream picks up from where it left off, bringing together Bert Jansch's final recordings, made between 2000 and 2006. This remarkable anthology documents some of Jansch's finest work, and a man at the top of his game, some forty years (!) after his first release. From the brooding resonance of Crimson Moon (where Jansch is joined by Johnny Marr, Bernard Butler and Johnny "Guitar" Hodge, as well as son Adam Jansch and Bert's wife Loren Jansch) to the intimacy of Edge of a Dream (Bernard Butler, Hope Sandoval, Dave Swarbrick, Ralph McTell, Johnny "Guitar" Hodge, Paul Wassif, Adam Jansch and Loren Jansch) to the wondrous new folk / trad folk harmony of Black Swan (Beth Orton, Devendra Banhart, Kevin Barker, Helena Espvall, Paul Wassif), these seemingly very different albums all speak of one thing: Bert's natural talent for turning out extraordinary music, regardless of genre. Disc four, The Setting of the Sun, takes in more demos and unreleased material, with guest appearances from Gordon Giltrap and Johnny Marr adding additional delight for fans old and new. These peeks into Jansch's recording process are nothing if not fascinating, with his home studio lending itself perfectly to any recording fancy he might arrive at. Like Part 1, this deluxe case-bound set exhibits the sublime attention to detail that has become Earth Recordings' calling card. Liner notes come courtesy of colleague Bernard Butler and Bert's son Adam, while a comprehensive listening guide (by esteemed journalist, Dave Henderson) is also included.

Cluster/Konzerte 1972 + 1977 ....CD $17.99

Cluster/Konzerte 1972 + 1977 ....CD $17.99

The two authorized recordings presented here vividly conjure up the atmosphere, perhaps even the magic, of a Cluster performance back in the day. One took place in 1977 during a science fiction festival in Metz (France). The other dates back to an earlier show in Hamburg's Fabrik venue. Cluster played three gigs in the city in 1971/1972, including the one partially included on "Cluster II."  Cluster shows routinely lasted six hours or more, luring both the band and the audience into a state of intoxication, no doubt acutely enhanced by the intake of certain substances. The buzzwords of the moment were: psychedelic, magical, ritualistic, corresponding more or less to the Dionysian hedonism which pervades certain styles of contemporary music culture today. It is worth noting this context as useful background when listening to the live recordings presented here.

The Durutti Column/Domo Arigato Deluxe ....triple CD + DVD $28.99

The Durutti Column/Domo Arigato Deluxe ....triple CD + DVD $28.99

3CD+DVD (4 disc set). 51 tracks. Factory Benelux presents an expanded 4 disc edition of Domo Arigato, the acclaimed live album by Manchester ensemble The Durutti Column, recorded in Tokyo in April 1985. Domo Arigato followed on the heels of ambitious 'modern classical' album Without Mercy a year earlier, and saw composer/guitarist Vini Reilly and percussionist Bruce Mitchell augmented by John Metcalfe on viola and Tim Kellet on trumpet. Their show-cum-recital at the Kan'i Hoken Hall on 25 April was recorded digitally and filmed on two 35mm cameras. 'Mixing down was fun,' recalled Durutti manager/mentor Anthony H. Wilson. 'We were on a flight out next morning so Nippon Columbia hired a mobile studio recording truck and we mixed from midnight to 6 a.m.' In fact the group always considered this rather hurried mix imperfect, and therefore for this greatly expanded 2017 reissue Factory Benelux have returned to the original soundboard tapes and remastered the entire 90 minute performance, in the process restoring the original running order. Disc 1 of the 4 CD set presents the original digital mix from 1985, while Discs 2 and 3 include the 2017 soundboard remaster plus a previously unreleased gig from Tokyo Loft Club on 29 April 1984. Disc 4 is an NTSC format DVD featuring a pristine transfer of the original Japanese laserdisc edition of Domo Arigato, which is the filmed version of the show with the 1985 digital mix. A double disc vinyl edition is also available with a bonus 7" single, Dedications for Japan.

Michael Bloomfield/Don't Say that I Ain't Your Man ....import CD $13.99

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 popularising 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 number 22 on Rolling Stone's list of "100 Greatest Guitarists of All Time" in 2003 and number 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.

Rick Wakeman & Friends/Gastank ....triple CD $22.99

Two DVD edition and a three CD edition. Gastank was an English television show that aired between 1982-1983 on Channel 4. Hosted by Rick Wakeman and Tony Ashton the show featured a mix of interviews with 1970s musicians and impromptu performances where the guest artist would join Rick and Tony with their house band in playing re-arranged versions of their classic songs, or entirely new pieces created for the show. The format was very informal with the setting likened to a bar where Wakeman and Ashton would interview the guests over a drink or two followed by their performance in front of a small studio audience sitting in groups at tables. They would frequently cite the show as an opportunity for musicians from different bands to get the opportunity to work together. During it's run, the show featured guests as diverse as Ian Paice, Rick Parfitt, Steve Hackett, Andy Fairweather Low, John Entwistle, Godley and Creme, Eric Burdon, Suzy Quatro, Eric Burdon and Phil Lynott. Now for the first time on DVD all the episodes of Gastank are collected here. And for the first time on CD, you can cherish all the seminal music performances from Rick, Tony and their guests.

Allan Holdsworth/The Man Who Changed Guitar Forever ....12 CD Box Set $114.99 Allan Holdsworth/Eidolon ....double CD $17.99

Twelve CD box set collection featuring all of Allan Holdsworth's solo albums from 1982-2003. That title is no hyperbole-it was a proclamation that ran on the cover of Guitar Player Magazine in 2008, and is a feeling shared by fans and guitarists all around the world. Still, though, Holdsworth remains largely under-rated; many who admire his most famous work have overlooked dozens of fascinating finds to be made on his decades of recordings. This collection is a treasure trove of such discoveries, as it brings you all 11 of his albums as a solo artist, producer and group leader since 1980 plus the live-in-Tokyo album Then! And a 40-page booklet full of liner notes and archival photos. You also get previously unreleased bonus tracks, and all these albums have been newly remastered from the original tapes: I.O.U. (1982), Road Games (1983), Metal Fatigue (1985), Atavachron (1986), Sand (1987), Secrets (1989), Wardenclyffe Tower (1992), Hard Hat Area (1993), None Too Soon (1996), The Sixteen Men Of Tain (2000), Flat Tire (2001) and Then! (2003). These albums, many of which have been out of print and very hard to find for years, include one intriguing composition, ethereal track, dazzling fusion rocker and daredevil guitar passage after another.   12 CD box set featuring bonus tracks on the albums and everything newly remastered, includes 40 page booklet

Two CD collection spanning the years 1982-2003. Following his early work with Soft Machine and Gong, this innovative and highly influential guitar stylist (whose tapping and tone crossed over to players from rock to prog to metal to jazz) started a long solo career. This retrospective contains an unreleased Jack Bruce vocal version of "Road Games" plus "Eidolon," "City Nights," "Sphere of Innocence," "Funnels," "Mental Fatigue," "Tokyo Dream," "Against the Clock" and more key cuts from his albums, all hand-picked by Allan himself! 6 Panel CD Wallet and includes 20 page booklet

Jean-Michel Jarre/Oxygene Trilogy ....triple CD $27.99

Jean-Michel Jarre/Oxygene Trilogy ....triple CD $27.99

40 years after the huge international impact of Oxygene, and 20 years from its second volume Oxygene 7-13, Jean-Michel Jarre is fulfilling a trilogy of albums with Oxygene 3, containing seven newly composed and recorded pieces, consistently titled parts 14-20. His inspiration for the newly added parts on Oxygene 3 was not to go back in time, but to add a sense of "now" to his iconic piece of work. Plunging into the environment of Oxygene with its highly original dark, moody and at times quite upbeat musical language, Jarre references some of the music from his entire body of work on Oxygene 3. It s a state-of-the-art recording, embracing both classic and modern ways of music production.

Klaus Schulze/Androgyn ....import CD $17.99

Klaus Schulze/Androgyn ....import CD $17.99

Re-release of Klaus Schulze's Androgyn (originally released 2002 as part of the strictly limited and long exhausted 5CD Boxset Contemporary Works II). The first track on Androgyn has again, like on Another Green Mile, the cello of Wolfgang Tiepold and some odd voice samples added to interesting synth sounds. The long second track has Klaus on electric guitar and for good reason it's called Back to the Future: Klaus plays the guitar with a Gleiteisen, a piece of iron that he used in the cosmic slide guitar technique from old Ash Ra Temple times, 32 years ago. The next four tracks belong together. There's No Mystery has a voice and the adequate and efficient cello again...and of course it has Klaus' famous string accord in the back; you already heard it on Another Green Mile and can hear it again on further albums. As Androgyn comes to it's end it gets more rythmic. For the final title, This House Full of Shadows, I noticed at first listening: Will be liked by the people. We hear again Wolfgang Tiepold's expert cello. The bonus track A Tiny Violin is a rare beautiful pearl from the 10thCD Adds & Edits of the limited wooden boxset Contemporary Works I. On violin: Thomas Kagelmann. After the successful releases of U.S.O. Privee and Another Green Mile MIG-Music proudly lifted another nugget of Klaus Schulze. We will continue to discover further gems!

Ian Carr/Old Heartland ....CD $17.99

Ian Carr/Old Heartland ....CD $17.99

Ian Carr was a Scottish jazz musician, composer, writer, and educator. Carr performed and recorded with the Rendell-Carr quintet and jazz-rock band Nucleus. Old Heartland is completely different to what a follower of Ian's workwith Nucleus might expect. It is a suite of four jazz-classical compositions, Northumbrian Sketches, performed with the Manchester String Orchestra (later Kreisler String Orchestra), and three other tunes, performed with old colleagues from Nucleus, Geoff Castle and John Marshall, and others. There's elements of Joseph Haydn, Vaughan William's and Benjamin Britten as Carr builds an indigenous English vocabulary in which to add his knowledge of contemporary jazz, with influences of ECM artists and Miles Davis in his work with Gil Evans. Northumbrian Sketches was commissioned in 1986 by the Bracknell jazz and classical music festivals; and Carr wrote it as a tribute to his late friend, the author Sid Chaplin. It's lyrical trumpet lines are full of melancholy and majesty, soaring above landscapes of strings. It's sophisticated and highly cultured music, serious and concentrated finely into superb performances. The complementary material is beautifully crafted too, gentle and tastefully fitting the conceptual objective of the recording. The bass clarinet and flugelhorn combinations on Full Fathom Five are particularly lush, and Marshall's gentle percussive touches and Mark Wood's acoustic guitar melodies give the title track the rightbalance.

Sun Ra & Arkestra/Secrets of the Sun ....CD $16.99

Of this album, Troy Collins writes: 'Marking a transition in its development between the advanced swing of the early Chicago-era recordings and the increased free-form experimentation of its New York tenure, this album also reveals the first recorded versions of two Ra standards, "Friendly Galaxy" and "Love in Outer Space." Accessible, yet segueing into vanguard territory, this album highlights a fertile period in the Arkestra's history. Looser and more aggressive than its Chicago recordings, these pieces find the Arkestra pushing at the limits of harmony and tonality.'

Sun Ra & His Myth Science Arkestra/When Angels Speak of Love ....CD $16.99

Sun Ra & His Myth Science Arkestra/When Angels Speak of Love ....CD $16.99

Digitally remastered edition. Sun Ra was an American jazz composer, bandleader, piano and synthesizer player, poet and philosopher known for his experimental music, "cosmic philosophy," prolific output, and theatrical performances. He was inducted into the Alabama Jazz Hall of Fame in 1979. For much of his career, Ra led "The Arkestra," an ensemble with an ever-changing name and flexible line-up. As John Szwed writes about "When Angels Speak of Love was considered a bizarre record when it was heard even three years later, made more bizarre by extreme echo, horns straining for the shrillest notes possible, rhythms layered, their polyrhythmic effect exaggerated by massive reverberation (which was abruptly turned off and on). 'Next Stop Mars' is the centerpiece of the album, a very long work which opens with a space chant, followed by Allen and Gilmore taking chances on their horns beyond what almost any other musician would dare at that time. Sun Ra played behind them, again relentlessly spinning around a single tonal center with two-handed independence, then rumbling thunderously at the bottom of the keyboard against Boykins's bass, a clangor made heavier by electronic enhancement." In other words, Classic RA and now finally available on CD.

Captain Beefheart & His Magic Band/Electricity 1967-1968 ....import CD $17.99

Electricity 1967-1968 is a collection of very rare recordings from Don Van Vliet AKA Captain Beefheart. The tracks were recorded live at MIDEM Pop Festival, Cannes Beach, France, at Frank Freeman's Dance Studio, Kidderminster, UK and Allegro Sound Studios, Los Angeles, CA. Track one, "Electricity" (1968 Live) Van Vliet's adaptation of the Howlin' Wolf vocal-construction device is in full frontal view, as is the evolving Magic Band rhythmic concept and French/Drumbo's incredibly responsive manifestation thereof as he shadows Van Vliet's singing; an outstanding version of one of the most innovative songs in the proto history of avant-rock. "Kandy Korn" (live) is structurally perhaps the most adventurous of the lot, it's interlocking parts peering past any jam-o-philic indulgences at the martial art to come.

The Residents/Disfigured Night ....CD $19.99

The Residents/Disfigured Night ....CD $19.99

Over the years, The Residents have been so prolific that it's easy to see that a year could have simply vanished and gone unnoticed. And one did - 1997! In the early to mid '90s, The Residents were quite active in the creation of CD-ROMs, releasing Freak Show, The Ginger Bread Man, and Bad Day on the Midway from 1992-95. So much time was devoted to writing and designing the CD-Roms that, other than some soundtrack music for the game and a short side project, Pollex Christi, no music was recorded in 1996. Having lost so much time on a dead concept, 1997 finally arrived, but the new year was not so happy. For the first time in decades, The Residents had absolutely nothing in the works. 1997 was born dead. And truthfully, the year never got much better, but the group did begin moving in some interesting new directions. Creatively, The Residents saw Pollex Christi as a successful experiment, consequently they decided to follow it up with another highly experimental, classically styled piece. Moving quickly, in the spring of 1997, the group began work on a new 15 min work, Disfigured Night. Soon afterards, inhabiting a position that normally would have been occupied by a string quartet, The Residents performed for a small, but wealthy crowd in San Jose. As the unsuspecting patrons entered the event, the group was seen perched 30 feet above the entrance to the cavernous lobby of software giant Adobe's world headquarters. Needless to say, The Residents hour long set was not quite what the rich nerds expected. Making sure no one missed it, the group performed the set, made up of a mix of prerecorded and live elements - some planned and some spontaneous - four times, and quickly left town.

East of Eden/New Leaf ....CD $17.99

East of Eden/New Leaf ....CD $17.99

Prog Temple present a reissue of East of Eden's New Leaf, originally released in 1971. East of Eden had an unexpected top ten UK hit with "Jig-A-Jig" in early 1971. By that time they had undergone various changes in personnel and musical approach, though they were still led by violinist Dave Arbus (who guested on The Who's "Baba O'Riley" the same year). New Leaf was originally issued that November and found the band in fine form with a mixture of progressive and more laidback material. It makes a welcome return to CD here, together with background notes and images.

Twenty Sixty Six and Then/Reflections on the Future ....CD $17.99

Twenty Sixty Six and Then/Reflections on the Future ....CD $17.99

In May 1972 Twenty Sixty Six And Then met first time and decided to found a band. Day and night they rehearsed and filed on their sound in their residence in Mannheim. Another journalist at that time: Dominating in their music is a dynamic, which is regulatory in the developing harmonies in the complex structured arrangements. When the musicians sometimes get lost in old hard rock stereotypes they kept enough distance to the sounds, to prove their intents with detailed inserted alienation. In a short way: the rediscovery of a Krautrock origin from the Mannheim-rock scene in the early '70s. Twenty Sixty Six and Then were the singer Geff Harrison (the only member from the UK), Veit Marvos on organ, Steve Robinson played the second organ, Gagey Mrozeck guitar, Dieter Bauer on bass and Konstantin Heinrich Bommarius on drums. The CD contains the bonus tracks, originally released on the rare and strictly limited double-vinyl-edition re-released in 2002.

Snowy White/Released ....CD $16.99

Snowy White/Released ....CD $16.99

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

Gosta Berlings Saga/Detta Har Hant ....CD $18.99

Gosta Berlings Saga/Detta Har Hant ....CD $18.99

2017 release. The album was recorded during winter 08/09, partly assisted by Mattias Olsson of Anglagard, and represents the band's evolution since the release of the critically acclaimed debut album Tid ar Ljud (2006). Whereas the previous album dealt with the interaction between nature and city, Detta Har Hant focuses on the latter with eight stories about the languishing welfare state, industrialism and love. The songs range from full-blown epic soundscapes via dissonant darkness to minimalistic powerful grooves without compromising when it comes to the strong melodies the band is known for. The basis for the album was recorded live in the band's own studio Pelikaan, which has preserved a genuinely organic and highly energetic feel to the music. Overdubs have been made with instruments such as Mellotron, Minimoog and pump organ to give even more dimensions to the colorful sounds of Gosta Berlings Saga. In conclusion Detta Har Hant is a gigantic leap forward in all musical aspects, and should not be missed by anyone interested in new music.

Pat Travers/Live at Rockpalast: Cologne 1976 ....import CD + DVD $22.99

On November 4, 1976, a young guitarist and singer performed with his band at Rockpalast, is not only delivering a sensational show but also giving definite proof of a musical potential yet to be fulfilled. Almost four decades later, these recordings were finally unearthed and are officially available. Travers played together with bass player Peter Mars Cowling and drummer Nicko McBrain, the same Nicko McBrain that pounds the skins for Iron Maiden. I first saw Nicko play with his band Street Walker, Travers recalls. They were about to split up, and I caught one of their last shows. Nicko's fiery, funky and energetic drumming style really impressed me. The trio's trip to Cologne itself was one to remember as well: We used a small plane, a Beechcraft King Air. When descending the air pressure increased too quickly, so we all had sore ears and sinuses for a while right up until the show. Also the setup for the gig at Rockpalast seemed a bit underwhelming at first: The vocal monitor speakers on stage were very small and not sufficient at all, Travers recalls smiling, overlooking the fact that the aforementioned sore ears possibly were also responsible for this impression. And although there was a live audience, they were very far away from us and not really visible due to the bright stage lighting. So what we could hear was not as loud as we were used to, and interacting with the audience proved to be a challenge. Looking back on the recordings today, there's no trace of these problems, none at all. The grooves hammered out by Cowling and McBrain are simply stunning and add that special something to Travers' blues-based (in the broadest sense), yet hard rocking and modern sounds. The man himself blasts out each and every riff and solo with energy and passion as well as singing his heart out. In other words: Just these three guys are making a hell of a lot of music.

Andy Partridge/Powers ....CD $13.99

Andy Partridge/Powers ....CD $13.99

A 2017 mid-price reissue of the much sought after Powers.  CD in jewel case with 12 pages of sleeve notes and illustrations by long-time Ape House sleeve artist Andrew Swainson.  When Andy Partridge discovered a book about Richard M. Powers he became a time traveller, transported back to the smell of the paper, the plastic protective library book coverings and the universe laid out, jigsaw like, on his bed. Richard M. Powers had been the principal artist, illustrator among illustrators and guide to unleashing Andy Partridge's imagination among the stars and galaxies.  Andy's response was to record a sort of soundtrack to the paintings which had been so inspirational to him. The resulting album conjures, via 12 enigmatic pieces - akin to a virtual Musique concrete - a musical accompaniment to the variety of alien landscapes which Powers illustrated so profusely.  It also works as a standalone album of experimental music which, when issued as a limited edition in 2010, sold out immediately upon release.  Now a much sought after album, the album is reissued as a mid-price jewel cased CD with 12 pages of sleeve notes and illustrations by long-time Ape House sleeve artist Andrew Swainson.

Keith Emerson/Off the Shelf ....import CD $18.99

Esoteric Recordings are pleased to announce the re-release of the archive collection "Off the Shelf" by Keith Emerson. Originally issued in 2006 and long deleted, this collection (compiled by Keith Emerson) was a marvellous anthology of various recordings in Emerson's archives. Keith Emerson's work as a virtuoso keyboard player, composer and arranger for The Nice, Emerson Lake & Palmer is legendary. During his extensive career, Keith was never restricted by musical norms or classification. His music revealed the breadth of his musical influences, from classical composers such as Mussorgsky to Charlie Parker, rock & roll to The Band to Frank Zappa. Off the Shelf was Keith Emerson's means of revealing a collection of recorded works for various projects dating as far back as 1968 with The Nice, some of which were consigned to the archives for a variety of reasons and destined to remain unreleased until Off the Shelf was first issued. They feature recordings with the London Philharmonic Orchestra, the London Jazz Orchestra and legendary musicians including Levon Helm & Garth Hudson (of The Band), Aynsley Dunbar, Pat Travers, Cozy Powell and more.

Thinking Plague/Hoping against Hope ....CD $17.99

Thinking Plague/Hoping against Hope ....CD $17.99

Clouds scud across a storm-wracked sky, but while briefly exposing rare shards of blue, most often, blacker, gloomier grays lurk behind the mists.  Sometimes a work of art enables us to articulate our thoughts and feelings in times of upheaval and chaos. In an era when the world has seemingly come off its hinges, an album like Hoping Against Hope offers listeners the consolation that they are not alone. But more than that, this intellectually complex work offers tools to help us make sense, affectively at least, of the whole sorry mess.  Thinking Plague is a storied band, whose thirty-five year history has seen it cleave consistently to the extreme limits of what is possible to do within rock music. Much of the music it released has owed more to traditions external to rock, such as folk, chamber music, and particularly, the avant-garde tradition of twentieth-century classical music.  Thinking Plague are often cited as the leading light of the American arm of the 'Rock in Opposition' movement, genre-defying and, above all, unique.  The arrangements we hear on Hoping against Hope are those we will hear live. Even when singer Elaine di Falco's accordion is written and recorded in multiple voices, the parts are realizable by a single instrument.  Leader and composer Mike Johnson and newest member Bill Pohl's tightly scored twin guitars are panned out wide enough for the listener to balance the pursuit of an individual voice against the ensemble texture, which is the creative focus, a carefully crafted polyphony served by each instrumental voice. Pohl's addition brings a second electric guitar to the texture for the first time, enabling more sinuous scoring, rather than making the sound more 'rock.'   There is a familiar vocabulary in play, a harmonic palette and a phraseology that has evolved considerably over the band's lifespan without extreme points of rupture, despite major changes and sometimes long gaps between releases; this is clearly the same band that we heard in the 1980s, but Johnson is writing from a creative position that is fruitfully removed from that he occupied even four years ago. As demanding as this music may be, it is made to sound easy, and more importantly, beautiful.

The Ed Palermo Big Band/The Great Un-American Songbook: Volumes I & II ....double CD $24.99

The Ed Palermo Big Band/The Great Un-American Songbook: Volumes I & II ....double CD $24.99

Crazy times call for outrageous music, and few jazz ensembles are better prepared to meet the surreality of this reality TV era than the antic and epically creative Ed Palermo Big Band. The New Jersey saxophonist, composer and arranger is best known for his celebrated performances interpreting the ingenious compositions of Frank Zappa, an extensive body of work documented on previous Cuneiform albums.  But his fifth project for the label, The Great Un-American Songbook Volumes 1 & 2, is a love letter to the rockers who ruled the AM and FM airwaves in the 1960s via successive waves of the British Invasion. Featuring largely the same stellar cast of players as last year's gloriously eclectic One Child Left Behind, the 18-piece EPBB lovingly reinvents songs famous and obscure, leaving them readily recognizable and utterly transformed. The first installments in what he hopes to be an ongoing project, these two volumes give a whole new meaning to 'swinging London.'  More than any other EPBB release, The Great Un-American Songbook is like rummaging around Palermo's record collection and playing tracks at random after imbibing an espresso-laced bottle of absinth. He's the first to admit that the album is a highly personal and nostalgia-induced undertaking. "Almost everything I do lately is reliving my past," Palermo says. "With the craft and skill I've developed being an arranger for all these years, I can now take those songs that I grew up with and loved, and reinterpret them. I picked my favorite songs, songs that I'm going to want to hear and play a lot. There's really no other way to explain my selection process."  By the end of the long and winding road through Palermo's musical backpages there's no doubt that his nostalgia is our delight, as vintage rock songs make for state-of-the-art jazz. "Anything can be grist for the mill," Palermo says. "Once I start an arrangement I get so into it. I'm going to put my spin on it."  Nothing demonstrates the ensemble's ongoing vitality better than the stellar cast of players, with many longtime collaborators.  Many of these top-shelf musicians have been in the band for more than a decade, and they bring wide ranging experience, expert musicianship and emotional intensity to Palermo's music. From the first note, well, after the goat, the band manifests greatness in a truly Un-American cause.   From the Beatles, Rolling Stones and Jeff Beck to King Crimson, Traffic, and Jethro Tull, The EPBB storms the British invasion and plants the American flag (upside down)!

Chicago London Underground/A Night Walking through Mirrors ....CD $17.99

At a time when the world is mired in divisiveness, a time of wall-building and fear-mongering, it takes visionaries to build bridges rather than tear them down. "This is protest music," insists Rob Mazurek. "It always has been. That's why it's called 'Underground' - it's not just called that for fun. We really believe in it. The world has become so homogenized and leans so far towards the right, and this music expresses complete freedom and lack of borders. Our music is all about the obliteration of any kind of oppression, the tearing down of any kind of wall - freedom and equality, both sonically and spiritually."  For the last two decades the Chicago Underground Duo - Rob Mazurek and Chad Taylor - have created music meant to open minds and explore alien territory.  Now, on A Night Walking through Mirrors, they've created a new Transatlantic partnership in the form of Chicago / London Underground, inviting a pair of renowned British improvisers - Alexander Hawkins and John Edwards - into the creative fold. The result is an expansive sonic adventure whose every unexpected note and alchemical reaction runs counter to the limited imaginations ruling social media name-calling and clannish provincialism.  "We love their playing and thought they'd be a nice complement to what we do," Mazurek explains. When it comes to the rare occasions when he and Taylor do bring other musicians into the fold, he continues, "The only criteria is people who are completely open to anything, no matter how outlandish or crazy the idea is. They just have to be 100 percent into the moment and what we're doing."  Hawkins and Edwards are newcomers to one of Mazurek's longest-running musical partnerships. "We're sonic and spiritual brothers," Mazurek says of his profound partnership with Taylor. "It's a special relationship, one of those cosmic things where it just works. It's amazing that we've kept it going this long and hopefully we'll continue for another 20 years."  The album's title, A Night Walking through Mirrors, is an evocative fit for this exploratory set, capturing the sense of alluring disorientation, of sympathetic worlds upon worlds echoing into infinity. "It really felt like we would be playing and somebody would take a left turn and we'd be in another dimension," Mazurek recalls. "Another person would take a right turn and we'd be in yet another dimension, but everybody was right there. It really did feel like a night spent walking through mirrors in that respect."

The Microscopic Septet/Been Up So Long It Looks Like Down to Me: The Micros Play the Blues ....CD $17.99

The Microscopic Septet/Been Up So Long It Looks Like Down to Me: The Micros Play the Blues ....CD $17.99

It takes an unusual band to make news out of the blues, and The Microscopic Septet deliver a gripping investigation of the form on Been Up So Long It Looks Like Down to Me: The Micros Play the Blues, which continues the band's brilliant resurgence.  Since storming back into action in 2006 after a 14-year hiatus, the radically old-school combo has continued to evolve and extend its reputation. The new album builds on the band's longstanding love of that most basic and profound musical form, bringing the same reverently irreverent and insistently playful approach to the blues that has marked the Micros music from the beginning. The blues provide another avenue for the band to explore jazz history while forging a sound quite unlike any other ensemble.  Simultaneously embracing the past and the future makes perfect sense when you consider the fraught time and place that gave birth to the Microscopic Septet. In the early 1980s the New York jazz scene was divided, sometimes bitterly, between the emergence of the 'new traditionalists' as typified by Wynton Marsalis and the experimentation and stylistic mash-ups of the emerging downtown players. Rejecting allegiance to any particular camp or faction, the Micros forged their own path with an ethos succinctly summed up by co-leader Phillip Johnston: "Break all the rules and respect all the saints."  Embracing jazz's populist legacy, the Micros brought Uptown jazz back Downtown, where they made a compelling case that swing could look forward as well as backward. The band adopted a name that playfully alluded to its orchestral palette. As Johnston explained at the time, "The instrumentation is enough to give us a big range of colors and work compositionally in an expansive way."  The band is built upon the felicitous partnership of Johnston and Joel Forrester, who met in the early '70s and bonded over shared musical aesthetics, humor, and similarly skewed worldviews. Eager to break away from the jazz straightjacket of head-solo-head formats, they honed extended, lapidary jazz compositions that segued gracefully between different themes in a single piece, hearkening forward to forms employed by Sun Ra, Duke Ellington and Jelly Roll Morton. The music drew on the entire history of jazz, as well as polkas, tangos, antic cartoon themes, klezmer, and new wave rock. No matter how eclectic their influences, the Micros always hewed to the band's prime directive. "It's gotta swing, whether its Latin or R&B or straight-ahead blowing," Johnston says. "That's the foundation of what we do."

Bob Downes/It's a Mystery ....import CD $16.99

Bob Downes was a name you'd see everywhere in the late '60s/early '70s - always up to his neck in something interesting and experimental. Last year Chris Cutler tracked down a composition of his for Alphorns for the Probes series (it will be in No.22) and a few months later Bob sent Chris an unreleased recording of his 1970 Dream Journey, a great dance composition that speaks volumes about the general musical climate of the time (it's for 3 percussionists, two flautists, saxophone, trumpet and bass). Chris asked if there were more and soon this compilation came to be, which covers a lot of ground: from solo to 65-piece wind band, recording experiments to library music and the years 1970 to 2004. And, of course, Alphorns. Several tracks feature the legendary John Stevens, classical percussionist Derek Hogg and bassist Daryl Runswick. It's constantly engaging, inventive and a pleasure to listen to; and it's also a fascinating window onto a (sadly) vanished aesthetic.

Esoteric Recordings are pleased to announce the release of "Move into the Light - The Island Recordings 1969 - 1971," a deluxe 2 CD remastered anthology of the legendary psychedelic, underground & eastern influenced rock band Quintessence.

It also includes a live version of "Jesus, Buddha, Moses, Guaranga" which originally appeared on the Island double LP sampler "Bumpers" in 1970. One of the great underground acts of their era, Quintessence came together in the Ladbroke Grove area of London in 1969. The band comprised Australians Phil 'Shiva' Jones (vocals, keyboards), Ron 'Raja Ram' Rothfield (flute) along with Allan Mostert (lead guitar), Richard 'Shambhu Babaji' Vaughan (bass), Dave 'Maha Dev' Codling (rhythm guitar) and Jeremy 'Jake' Milton (drums). Within months of their formation the eastern influenced rock music of Quintessence had earned the band a dedicated following and they were signed by Chris Blackwell to Island Records. Over the next three years the band would record three classic albums for the label - "In Blissful Company," "Quintessence" & "Dive Deep" - along with the classic single version of one of their best known tracks, "Notting Hill Gate." The material Quintessence recorded during this period, mostly produced by John Barham, who would also work with George Harrison on his "All Things Must Pass" album, earned them admiration from such luminaries as Pete Townshend of The Who (who attended Quintessence concerts) and Jim Morrison of The Doors.

The extensive liner notes also feature a personal account from singer Doogie White, plus plenty of artwork and memorabilia from Doogie's own Rainbow collection. Rainbow split in 1984 when Ritchie joined Deep Purple's Mk2 reunion, and a further tumultuous decade. Ritchie quit Purple once more following a 1993 Helsinki gig, this time for good. Shortly after, it was announced that the guitarist was reforming Rainbow. Rumours abounded regarding who might feature in the line-up, but the new record would feature a band of relative unknowns.  The resulting record, "Stranger in Us All," was issued under the name Ritchie Blackmore's Rainbow in August 1995, with a band featuring Paul Morris on keyboards, Greg Smith on bass, John O'Reilly on drums and Blackmore's Night's Candice Night on background vocals. Fronted by Doogie White, the singer was an inspired choice; a huge fan of Ritchie's career in both Purple and Rainbow, the singer formed a strong writing partnership with the guitarist.

From Esoteric's distributor, Cherry Red, following the successful release on RPM of the Turtle Records box set in 2016, chronicling producer Peter Eden's early 1970's modern jazz label, we're pleased to announce a new series of modern jazz releases on the relaunched Turtle Records label. We begin with one of the most highly respected and collectable modern jazz figures today; composer, musician and band-leader Mike Westbrook. A pioneer of British jazz since the early 1960s and still creating today.  Marching Song began as a one-off nine minute composition for a shelved album, recorded by Mike with a sextet in 1966, previously unissued, it is included here as a bonus track on Disc 3. An expanded 15 piece Concert Band performance of the composition, by then developed into a 2 hour anti-war epic, first took place in 1967 at Plymouth's Athenaeum. The full piece was finally recorded in early 1969 and released by Decca Records in the UK on their Deram imprint on two separate single LP volumes. In 1970 the LPs were combined for a 2LP release in the US.  The recordings were produced by Peter Eden, then in the prime of his modern jazz producing tenure with Deram, capturing the cream of the British Jazz scene which had steadily risen from the mid 1960s onwards. This box set also features on Disc 3 both sides of a single produced by Peter of Mike's Concert Band with Norma Winstone for a one-off single in 1970, never before reissued.  Two further bonus tracks are on disc 3, a 16 minute piece entitled 'When Young' and a ten minute piece called 'But It Must Get Better,' both recorded as the Mike Westbrook Quartet in 1970, and previously unreleased.   This box set of the two remastered Marching Song volumes, plus the bonus material mastered from the analogue tapes in Mike's archive, are packaged with a booklet containing rare photographs from the 60's live performances plus a major essay on Mike, and these compositions, by noted jazz critic and writer Duncan Heining.

From Esoteric distributor Cherry Red - As far as supergroups are concerned, Fuse One is right up there with the likes of Crosby, Stills & Nash, Cream, Emerson Lake & Palmer, Bad Company etc, only difference is the genre.  Jazz (Funk) has its superstars and when the likes of Stanley Clarke (bass guitar), Eric Gale (lead guitar), Lenny White (drums), Tom Browne (trumpet), John McLaughlin (guitars), Stanley Turrentine (saxophones), Wynton Marsalis (trumpet) and George Benson (guitar) plus many others pool their resources, that is one hell of a band.  As producer Creed Taylor commented, Fuse One was conceived as a forum in which major contemporary musicians perform according to their own musical disciplines and interact without the constraints that accompany leader responsibilities. Each player brings in new compositions and ideas.  The "Fuse One" album was released in 1980, and kicks off with a Ronnie Foster composition titled 'Grand Prix' where Stanley Clarke takes the lead, and creates a jazz (funk) classic, Other stand out tracks are John McLaughlin's 'To Whom It May Concern' and 'Taxi Blues' composed by Stanley Clarke.  "Silk" was released one year later in 1981, and features 'In Celebration of the Human Spirit' and 'Silk' which was the band's only single and the 7" version is included as a bonus track along with the George Benson composed B-side 'Ode to Kudu,' which is available for the first time on CD.   Package includes sleeve notes by Charles Waring, contributor to MOJO & Record Collector magazines.

Esoteric Recordings' imprint Cocteau Discs, dedicated to the work of Bill Nelson, is proud to announce the release of a deluxe four disc clamshell boxed set limited edition of the classic collection "My Secret Studio - Volume One."  Originally issued as a limited edition release in 1995, "My Secret Studio" featured a collection of recordings made by Bill Nelson between 1988 and 1992; "Buddah Head," "Electricity Made Us Angels," "Deep Dream Decoder" and "Jukebox for Jet Boy." In his notes for the original release, Bill explained the original recordings thus; "Between the years 1988 and 1992 my life underwent some severe changes ... both emotional and financial. During that time I used my home studios to create sketches of songs for possible development with a potential band. The band, for various and nefarious reasons, never materialised. What you will hear is the raw stuff of dreams, instant song writing with a vengeance."  "My Secret Studio - Volume One" has now become a highly regarded collection of songs in the prolific discography of Bill Nelson. Long out of print, this Cocteau Discs re-mastered limited edition presents these wonderful albums once again, restoring the original artwork in the collection in a clamshell boxed set.

Jon Lord/Before I Forget [Expanded Version] ....import CD $17.99

From Esoteric distributor Cherry Red, "Before I Forget" was originally released on Harvest Records in June 1982, when Jon Lord was moonlighting from tinkling the ivories in Whitesnake.  Originally making his mark in the Artwoods and then playing keyboards with Deep Purple on their debut hit 'Hush,' Lord also enjoyed a series of significant side projects, from 1970's "Concerto For Group & Orchestra," 1972's "Gemini Suite," followed by "First Of The Big Bands" and "Windows," both in 1974, and "Sarabande" in 1976. Following Deep Purple's split in 1976, Lord joined Whitesnake for their 1978 debut "Trouble."   "Before I Forget" features an impressive cast of supporting musicians, including Whitesnake's Bernie Marsden and Neil Murray on guitar and bass respectively, drumming legends Ian Paice (Deep Purple & Whitesnake), Cozy Powell (Jeff Beck, Rainbow, Whitesnake, MSG & Black Sabbath) and Simon Philips (Judas Priest, Jeff Beck, MSG, Mike Oldfield & Toto). They're joined by the singing talents of Vicky & Sam Brown as well as Elmer Gantry, and topped off with appearances from Boz Burrell, Simon Kirke and Mick Ralphs courtesy of Bad Company.  The original eight track album is augmented by the 7" edit of the single 'Bach onto This' plus the B-Side 'Going Home,' as well as an outtake from the album, 'Ravel's Pavane.' As well as contemporary photos from the release of the album, the booklet includes liner notes from bassist Neil Murray.

Derringer/The Complete Blue Sky Albums 1976-1978 ....import 5 CD Box Set $27.99

From Esoteric distributor Cherry Red, This release collects together music made across three short but prolific years, when the band Derringer released three studio albums plus two live albums.  Rick Derringer first found fame aged just 17 in 1965, when his band The McCoys had a number one hit in America with 'Hang on Sloopy,' famously knocking The Beatles' 'Yesterday' off the top spot. Subsequently making significant appearances with Edgar Winter and Johnny Winter, as well as Steely Dan and Alice Cooper, and even squeezing in a solo hit with 1973's 'Rock 'N' Roll, Hoochie Koo,' before deciding to put together his own band in 1976. Naming the band Derringer, the singer and guitarist was joined by bassist Kenny Aaronson, future Black Sabbath and Dio drummer, Vinny Appice (brother of Cactus, Iron Butterfly, Beck Bogart & Appice and Rod Stewart drummer Carmine Appice), with the quartet completed by guitarist Danny Johnson.  Going for a rockier, harder, less poppy sound than Rick's previous musical excursions, Derringer signed to Blue Sky Records, a subsidiary of Columbia Records, in 1976. Simply titled "Derringer," among the original tracks the debut included lyrical collaborations with famed song writer Cynthia Weil. Although the band had yet to perform live together, they nevertheless set out on the road, forging a formidable live reputation, playing shows with the cream of '70s rock, giving Journey, Tom Petty, Boston, Foghat and Peter Frampton a run for their money.  Although only achieving cult status, the 1976 debut was followed up by "Sweet Evil" in 1977. Although the "Derringer" debut was produced by Rick himself, Jack Douglas, famed for his work with Aerosmith, was enlisted for the 1977 follow up for a more commercial edge.  As it was felt that the band didn't quite capture their onstage fire in the studio, the release of a live album in 1977, simply titled "Derringer Live," made perfect sense. It was also to be the final recording from the original quartet, as the band slimmed down to a three piece in 1978. With future Pat Benatar drummer Myron Grombacher coming in to join Aaronson and Derringer for the more contemporary sound on "If I Weren't So Romantic, I'd Shoot You," Derringer's final album was produced by Mike Chapman, famed for his work with Blondie, Sweet and Suzi Quatro, among many others.  This set also features the rare, promo only "Live In Cleveland" album, which includes an onstage version of 'Rock And Roll, Hoochie Koo' as well as a cover of Bowie's 'Rebel Rebel.' This collection is also completed with rare mono single versions for 'Let Me In,' 'Don't Stop Loving Me' and the Warren Zevon song 'Lawyers, Guns And Money,' plus liner notes from Malcolm Dome based on new interviews with Derringer members Kenny Aaronson and Vinny Appice.

Atomhenge, the label home for the Hawkwind catalogue between 1975 - 1997 is pleased to announce the release of "The GWR Years 1988 - 1991," a 3 CD set comprising all three of Hawkwind's albums originally released by the GWR label between 1988 & 1991 -"The Xenon Codex," "Space Bandits" and "Palace Springs."   These recordings saw Hawkwind move into the 1990s with a trio of excellent albums recorded by slightly fluctuating line-ups. Alongside Hawkwind Captain Dave Brock and long-time member Harvey Bainbridge, "The Xenon Codex" would be the last album of the 1980s to feature Huw Lloyd Langton on guitar, whilst bass guitarist Alan Davey would come more to the fore within the band.  For "Space Bandits," Richard Chadwick would join Hawkwind on drums (a role he continues to fulfil to this day), whilst former member Simon House would guest on the album, along with vocalist Bridget Wishart.   "Palace Springs" was Hawkwind's final album for GWR Records and featured excellent new tracks such as 'Treadmill' and 'Back in the Box,' alongside some live recordings of classic Hawkwind tracks.

Esoteric Recordings are pleased to announce the release of a newly re-mastered edition of "Journey to an Imaginary Land," the classic 1980 debut album by Austrian composer and multi-instrumentalist Gandalf (the pseudonym of Hans Strobl).  A true visionary, Gandalf enjoyed major European success with his unique style of instrumental progressive and ambient music, which has been compared with great multi-instrumentalists such as Mike Oldfield or Vangelis. "Journey to an Imaginary Land" was recorded in 1980 and was to be Gandalf's first album, a record made all the more remarkable as it was recorded entirely at his home studio, prior to him becoming a full-time musician.   The album was issued in Europe to acclaim and Gandalf embarked on a long career.   Unavailable for some years, "Journey to an Imaginary Land" has been re-mastered for the first time from the original source masters.  The booklet of this new edition features an exclusive new interview with Gandalf, features previously unseen photographs and fully restores the original album artwork.

Esoteric Recordings are pleased to announce the release of a newly re-mastered and expanded edition of "Reflections on a Life," the classic 1971 album by Welsh progressive rock group Blonde on Blonde.  Featuring a line-up of David Thomas (vocals, guitar, bass, harmonica), Gareth Johnson (guitars), Graham Davies (bass, acoustic & electric guitars) and Les Hicks (drums), "Reflections on a Life" was the third and final album by the band (who hailed from Newport in South Wales). Issued in 1971, the record followed on from the band's albums,"Contrasts" (recorded for the Pye label in 1969) and "Rebirth" (released by Ember Records in 1970). Recorded at Rockfield studios in Monmouthshire in 1971, "Reflections on a Life" was a further step forward in creative terms for the progressive rock band and saw them create a conceptual work for their final album. The record also featured a guest appearance by Kips Brown from the band Spring on Mellotron.  Original vinyl copies of "Reflections on a Life" now demand huge sums among collectors, based upon the quality and originality of the music within.  This Esoteric Recordings edition has been newly re-mastered from the original Ember masters and includes a bonus tracks. The booklet of this new edition features exclusive new interviews with David Thomas and Gareth Johnson, features previously unseen photographs and fully restores the original album artwork.

Mike McGear/Woman [Remastered Edition] ....import CD $18.99

Esoteric Recordings are pleased to announce the release of a newly re-mastered edition of the classic 1972 album "Woman" by Michael McGear.  Release by Island Records in February 1972, "Woman" was the first solo album by Mike McGear (McCartney) and was a more "serious" record than his work with the Liverpool satirical trio Scaffold, or his work with Roger McGough on the "McGough & McGear" album. Recorded at Strawberry studios in Stockport and completed at Abbey Road studios, the album had a long gestation period and sessions featured such notable guests as organist Brian Auger, Ginger Johnson and his African drums, Andy Roberts et al, the material comprising the album was song-based, (interspersed with recorded dialogue between Mike and his daughter), with some lyrics provided by Roger McGough. Being removed from his work with Scaffold, "Woman" was rejected by EMI Records for release, but was eagerly signed by Island Records.  Over the years, the songs on the album, including the emotive title track, have earned both appreciation and a cult following. The album's title track was even featured in an episode of the BBC TV series "Cradle to Grave."  A gorgeous, eccentric, collection of music, "Woman" is an album to savour. This Esoteric Recordings edition has been newly remastered and includes an illustrated booklet with a new interview with Mike McGear McCartney.

Neal Morse Band/Morsefest 2015: "?" and "Sola Scriptura" LIVE! ....4 CD + 2 DVD Set $35.99

Hot on the heels of 2016's most acclaimed progressive rock release, The Similitude of a Dream, the Neal Morse Band announces the massive live release of a once-in-a-lifetime concert event: Morsefest 2015.  In addition to the Neal Morse Band, featuring Mike Portnoy, the 38 musicians on stage create a prog orchestra. Over two nights (one on each video disc) in 2015, they perform new arrangements of material from Neal Morse's career. The two concerts span over five hours, venturing beyond the studio versions they're based on. In addition to complete performances of the Sola Scriptura and Question albums, there are songs from Spocks's Beard (featuring guest Nick D'Virgilio), Transatlantic, and surprises - including performances with guitar legend Phil Keaggy. Accompanied by extravagant visuals, including three video screens and live dancers, Morsefest 2015 is the most massive live release of Morse's career.  Morsefest 2015 was an epic show with epic music and epic performances!  Free from the constraints of studio recording deadlines, Morse added any instrumentation he imagined, including live strings, a 5-piece horn section, and a 14-piece choir (in addition to background singers, and the vocals of the band). At the center is the Neal Morse Band: singer/guitarist/keyboardist Neal Morse, drummer Mike Portnoy, bassist Randy George, keyboardist Bill Hubauer and guitarist Eric Gillette.

Complimenting this level of musicality, is a multimedia visual presentation. It begins with the most elaborate lighting set-up Morse has ever used, constructed specifically for this event, designed by Ryan Proplesch. A video graphics track, projected on three screens, was created by media artist Christian Rios to illustrate every moment of each song. Live dancers provide further visual interpretations, adding a dimension to the performance that is rare in progressive rock.  In addition to both concerts, a one-hour documentary puts audiences behind the scenes for this epic event. Featuring candid moments from the band, other musicians, and crew - it's an engaging glimpse into the whirlwind staging of this event. And there's even a Prog Jeopardy featurette.   Sonically, outstanding audio is delivered by veteran mix engineer by Rich Mouser, who has helmed every Neal Morse, Spock's Beard, and Transatlantic studio album. The package is presented as either 2 Blu-ray discs, or 2 DVDs with 4 CDs.   "Morsefest 2015 was absolutely incredible for me! We performed Question and Sola Scriptura plus a lot of other really cool stuff with full choir, horns, orchestral percussion, strings, piano harp, Cuika and dancers! The artwork on the video wall was absolutely mind blowing. Combine that with the atmosphere of the community of fans and the love in the room ... it was definitely a peak experience in my career, and I think the DVD and Blu-ray are among the finest we've ever produced.  -  Neal Morse.   Morsefest 2015 happened only once. Viewers can now experience it any time, with stunning visuals and audio fidelity. And audiences can hear the next chapter of the Neal Morse Band, performing The Similitude of a Dream in its entirety, across Europe and selected world locations, throughout the spring of 2017.

Tim Bowness/Lost in the Ghost Light ....import CD + DVD $26.99

Tim Bowness follows 2015's Stupid Things that Mean the World (Top 10 in the UK Rock, Vinyl and Prog charts) with a release unlike any in his back catalogue.  Mixed and mastered by Steven Wilson, Lost in the Ghost Light uses a core band of Stephen Bennett, Colin Edwin (Porcupine Tree), Bruce Soord (The Pineapple Thief), Hux Nettermalm (Paatos) and Andrew Booker, plus guests including Kit Watkins (Happy The Man/Camel), Steve Bingham (No-Man), David Rhodes (Peter Gabriel / Kate Bush) and the legendary Ian Anderson (Jethro Tull). Andrew Keeling (Robert Fripp/Hilliard Ensemble/Evelyn Glennie) arranges for string quartet and flute on three of the album's songs.  Lost in the Ghost Light is a concept album revolving around the onstage and backstage reflections of a fictional 'classic' rock musician in the twilight of his career. Ranging from the hypnotic opener Worlds of Yesterday to the wistful climax of Distant Summers, via the thrilling rage of Kill the Pain that's Killing You and the orchestral expanse of You'll Be the Silence, the album features some stunning solos and harmonically rich compositions that represent Bowness's most musically ambitious work to date.  Jarrod Gosling provides the fantastically detailed artwork, which includes a visual history of the career of the concept's subject.  Limited CD/DVD edition with hi-res stereo files and Bruce Soord 5.1 surround mixes of both the Lost in the Ghost Light and Stupid Things that Mean the World albums.

Blackfield/V ....import CD $14.99

Blackfield V sees the duo of Steven Wilson & Aviv Geffen return to full collaborative mode! Blackfield is the collaboration between Israeli songwriter and musician Aviv Geffen and British musician and producer Steven Wilson. Blackfield V sees a return to the full partnership that made the first two albums such firm favourites with fans hinted at by the reprisal of the medicine bottle in the artwork from their first album. The pair makes for a formidable musical force; Geffen has worked with legendary producers Tony Visconti and Trevor Horn, has played live with U2 and Placebo, and is currently a judge on the Israeli TV show The Voice. Wilson, after a long tenure as the leader of the hugely influential band Porcupine Tree, has since embarked on a highly successful solo career achieving three UK top 40 albums and four Grammy nominations. Written and recorded over a period of 18 months in both Israel and England, Blackfield V contains 13 linked songs that form a flowing 45 minute ocean themed song cycle. With the pair expertly handling vocals, guitars and keyboards, they brought in Tomer Z from the Blackfield band on drums, Eran Mitelman on keys and string arrangements were performed by the London Session Orchestra. Blackfield V is a powerful journey through catchy melodies, lush arrangements and a stunning production with legendary producer/engeneer Alan Parsons working on three of the album's key tracks. Both musicians consider Blackfield V to be their best collaboration to date. The album will be released on three formats: CD Digipack, 2LP heavyweight 180g vinyl presented in single packaging with a four page booklet and a free mp3 download; and CD + Blu-Ray presented in a deluxe media book. The Blu-Ray offers audiophiles a listening experience second to none with the album in high resolution stereo and 5.1 surround sound.

Planets + Persona, the 2017 studio album from Richard Barbieri, is the most sonically expansive work to date from the former Japan and Porcupine Tree keyboard maestro.   The album combines vintage analogue synthesisers with acoustic instrumentation, and incorporates jazz elements, pitching Barbieri's unique sound designs against improvisations from a personally hand-picked group of guest musicians that includes Percy Jones, Luca Calabrese and Lisen Rylander Love.  As on Stranger Inside, manipulated voices (mainly courtesy of Rylander Love's real time experiments) are present.   Recorded across Europe in studios in London, Italy and Sweden, Barbieri's third album is without doubt his most ambitious solo release to date.  Highlighting the album's central theme of duality, the artwork on the 16 page booklet features photographic scenes of dramatic Icelandic landscapes.  CD in digipak. Mastered by Simon Heyworth.

U.K. progressive post-rock supergroup Crippled Black Phoenix is a musical collective that has featured nearly 30 members in its rotating roster.

Mike + The Mechanics/Let Me Fly ....CD $14.99

Mike + The Mechanics is set to release their new studio album 'Let Me Fly.'  Even inside Genesis, Mike Rutherford's forte has always been his melodic songwriting. With the successful side project Mike & the Mechanics, the artist managed to find a further way to express himself working with other composers and different teams. Since 1985, Mechanics became a brand in their own, releasing seven albums, selling more than 10 million records, launching many hit singles and touring worldwide with a two frontmen led band.  The sudden death of one of the original singers, Paul Young, needed a period of adjustment but, after one experimental album with Paul Carrack as the only vocalist, Rutherford changed the face to the band recruiting two new singers, Andrew Roachford and Tim Howar. While the album including their most famous song, Living Years, celebrates its 25th anniversary, Mike & The Mechanics are still hitting the road, to the pleasure of the fans worldwide.

It included two musical offerings from Wizz, one of them a song in the style of Woody Guthrie called 'Hard Times in Newquay' (if you've got long hair!). The youthful Wizz explained to Alan 'All I'm interested in is playing the guitar and travelling.' Unfortunately for the local councillors who spoke about how they were trying to expel the beatniks, the latter had already had a profound effect on the local youth in the shape of Pete Berryman; Pete's first experience of live acoustic guitar was seeing the very same Wizz Jones, barefoot and busking on the beach in Newquay. Simeon Jones often travelled with father Wizz and Mrs Wizz (that's Sandy who played banjo on the 'Lazy Farmer' album) together with his brothers during the 1960s and 1970s to Cornwall in a variety of jalopy VW buses and Citroens as well as to numerous festivals in the UK and Europe. Avoiding the guitar (perhaps sensibly!) he developed into a superb sax, harmonica and flute player and has been playing since the 1980s a wide variety of music in sessions and on tours with countless blues bands. And so, the music on this album results from three musicians who have nothing to prove, getting together for a few days and playing assuredly on a few songs and tunes they all love. It's rhythmic, melodic and relaxed, sometimes foot-tapping sometimes almost delicate.... There are original songs from both Pete and Wizz along with Bert Jansch's 'Moonshine' and Fran Landesman's wonderful 'Ballad of the Sad Young Men'. And Wizz revisits the classic Alan Tunbridge song 'See How the Time Is Flying' which seems to become more poignant with every performance and the passage of time. Wizz's song 'Alone in My Car' perhaps sums up the overall mood; driving through the night, heading for Cornwall, looking forward to playing some music with Pete and other friends. 'Playing the guitar and travelling' - still doing it after all these years. Long may it continue - come what may!

Blondie/Pollinator ....CD $13.99

Blondie/Pollinator ....CD $13.99

In 'Pollinator' exists a giant feedback loop - one in which Blondie created, then generations were inspired, then those generation created and inspired, and are now teaming up with Blondie. When the time came for Chris, Debbie and drummer Clem Burke to "get the band back together" and make an album, choice pioneers from the decades since Blondie's birth were called upon to contribute songs for the record, thereby weaving their own way into the living, breathing story of the band, a group that directly affected their own genetic makeup. The list is enviable and reflects the dynamism of Blondie's very own cross-pollinating past: Johnny Marr, Sia, Dev Hynes, Charli XCX, Dave Sitek (TV On The Radio), Nick Valensi (The Strokes) and The Gregory Brothers all lent their creations for Blondie to interpret, each building upon the aspect of their heroes that's bolstered their own sound.

The Jazz Passengers/Still Life with Trouble ....CD $14.99

The Jazz Passengers/Still Life with Trouble ....CD $14.99

The Jazz Passengers are a fantastical fusion of post-bop and musical comedy, once called a perverse mainstream hard-bop group as imagined by Frank Zappa. (Bob Blumenthal, Boston Globe, 1989). Their name, a take-off on Art Blakey's Jazz Messengers, reveals the musicians wild ride along the eccentric currents in modern American music.   Saxophonist Roy Nathanson and trombonist Curtis Fowlkes, who found strong affinity in their Brooklyn roots while together in the band of the Big Apple Circus and John Luries seminal band, The Lounge Lizards, founded the band in 1987.  Since their early days on the downtown jazz scene, the Jazz Passengers have travelled on a journey around the world, touring with Deborah Harry for seven years, recording and performing with Elvis Costello, Mavis Staples, Jimmy Scott and so many more. They've appeared on the David Letterman Show and The House of Blues, and they are known for their creative adventures in performance - such as their live music and dialogue performance to Creature from the Black Lagoon in 3D in Prospect Park, Brooklyn, and their theatrical adaptation of 'Exiles in Eden,' Paul Reyes' nonfiction exploration of the housing crisis in Florida.  The Jazz Passengers will be releasing their 13th album, 'Still Life with Trouble.'

The Creation/Action Painting ....double CD + Book $27.99

The Creation/Action Painting ....double CD + Book $27.99

A dynamic band with an equally engaging image, they would burn brightly for less than two years, yet would leave an indelible mark upon music history. With producer du jour Shel Talmy at the helm (The Who, Kinks, Easybeats, Cat Stevens, et al) the Creation went on an incredible two year tear of singles, including "Making Time," "How Does It Feel to Feel," "Tom Tom," and "If I Stay too Long." By 1968 it was over.  Eddie Phillips' trademark guitar bowing would be nicked by Jimmy Page and Boney M would cheese-up "Painter Man."  Over the nearly five decades since, the Creation has seen a tremendous resurgence in interest. First it was the Jam flossing "Making Time" on the inner sleeve of All Mod Cons. A few years later Alan McGee formed the band Biff Bang Pow and his Creation record label. By the turn of the century a new generation had discovered the band via a strategic placement in Wes Anderson's Rushmore.  Presented here for the first time are the complete Creation studio recordings. All 46 tracks have been remastered from the original tapes by Shel Talmy, and given fresh stereo mixes where previously unavailable. New essays by Dean Rudland and Alec Palao tell the band's story and dive into their complete studio sessions. Scores of previously unpublished photographs adorn the accompanying 80 page hard bound CD book. We've rounded the whole package out with four tracks by pre-Creation freakbeat quartet the Mark Four, making Action Painting the definitive collection of this legendary UK band. LP version features a 16 page book and 24 of the best tracks including all Mark Four songs.

Edenbridge/The Great Momentum ....CD $15.99

Edenbridge/The Great Momentum ....CD $15.99

The album's amazing energy is only one of a whole number of quality features that make The Great Momentum stand out. At its epicentre are nine awesome songs penned by Lanvall, each one of them consisting of anthemnic melodic metal and all of them potentially addictive. Any band wanting to leave their mark in our fast-lived world needs first and foremost two things: compositional substance and consistency. After all there are plenty of one-hit wonders in this industry, those overnight sensations with their artificial fast food-like products that frequently don't even have the shelf-life of fresh fruit and veg. Edenbridge, on the other hand, have already proved their great musical potential, eight studio albums since their debut in 2000, in addition to a number of live recordings, DVDs and compilations speaking for themselves. Having said that, it's surprising that the Austrian band surrounding vocalist Sabine Edelsbacher have once again succeeded in raising the bar for symphonic melodic metal even further with their latest album The Great Momentum. Composer and multi-instrumentalist Lanvall has produced another offering that's ambitioned in every respect and will without a doubt go down in the band's history as their toughest release to date.

Simon Kirke/All Because of You ....CD $14.99

Simon Kirke/All Because of You ....CD $14.99

Born and raised in London, the Beatles perked a teenage Simon's interest in rock music, and he picked up the drums - leading to a gig with a local band called the Maniacs, on which Simon supplied drums and lead vocals (something quite uncommon at the time).   Simon worked out a deal with his parents after graduating high school, that if he couldn't "make it" as a drummer in a band within a two-year period, that he would begin a college career. Just a few months before the deadline, Simon landed a gig with a group called the Black Cat Bones. The drummer befriended the group's talented guitarist, Paul Kossoff, who in turn convinced Simon to leave the group with him and begin a new outfit with singer Paul Rodgers.  Soon ex-John Mayall's Bluesbreakers bassist Andy Fraser signed on and Free was officially formed in 1968. Mixing blues with hard rock, the group would prove to be quite influential, especially on the strength of their classic 1970 release, Fire and Water, and its strutting, anthemic hit single, "All Right Now."  When the band broke up, it didn't take Simon long to find another gig, joining Paul Rodgers in a new band, Bad Company, which was quite similar stylistically to Free. Joined by ex-King Crimson bassist Boz Burrell and ex-Mott the Hoople guitarist Mick Ralphs, Bad Company was the first group signed to Led Zeppelin's record label, Swan Song.   Their debut album, 1974's Bad Company, would go on to become one of hard rock's all-time classics, as it birthed such long-standing rock radio standards as "Can't Get Enough," "Ready for Love," and the title track, written by Paul and Simon himself. The group hails as one of the all-time top rock outfits. Simon Kirke is the only member of Bad Company who's been in every lineup of the band.

Ayreon/01011001 ....double CD $16.99

With a new Ayreon album in the works, Mascot Label Group is set to re-release his comprehensive back catalog, which includes The Final Experiment, Into the Electrick Castle, Universal Migrator Part I & II, The Human Equation and 01011001.  Ten years with hard rock band Vengeance brought Lucassen recognition in the US, UK, Netherlands, Germany, Switzerland and Japan.  When he started writing and recording on his own in the early '90s, it was the funding of a Japanese record label that got the ball rolling.  The Final Experiment was Ayreon's first labum.  Released in the Netherlands in 1995 by start up label Transmission Records, it set the tone for the project with intricate sci-fi/fantasy storytelling and timeless progressive rock.   The follow-up, Actual Fantasy (1996) turned out to be a relatively modest production, but the phenomenal reception of theese first Ayreon albums exposed Lucassen to world famous singers and instrumentalists.  Into the Electric Castle was released to critical acclaim in 1998 and went on to sell over 100,000 copies.  The twin albums The Dream Sequencer and Flight of the Migrator - aka Universal Migrator Parts I & II (2000) - proved that Lucassen was not afraid to take Ayreon to yet another level of larger than life creativity.  With The Human Equation (2004) Lucassen turned away from his earlier sci-fi themes to explore the realm of human emotions.  The Human Equation was adapted for stage and performed in 2015 by a cast that included almost everybody from the original album in 2006.  Lucassen returned to the sci-fi concept and linked all of the previous Ayreon albums together musically as well as lyrically on 01011001.

T. Rex/T. Rex (Remastered) ....CD $12.99

T. Rex/T. Rex (Remastered) ....CD $12.99

Remastered CD - The most iconic band of the U.K. glam rock scene of the '70s, T. Rex were the creation of Marc Bolan, who started out as a cheerfully addled acolyte of psychedelia and folk-rock until he turned to swaggering rock & roll with boogie rhythm and a tricked-up fashion sense. For a couple years, T. Rex were the biggest band in England and a potent cult item in the United States. If their stardom didn't last, their influence did, and T. Rex's dirty but playful attitude and Bolan's sense of style and rock star moves would show their influence in metal, punk, new wave, and alternative rock; it's all but impossible to imagine the '80s new romantic scene existing without Bolan's influence.

Middle of the Road is Eric Gales fourth album on Provogue/Mascot label Group after Transformation (2011), Relentless (2010) and The Psychedelic Underground (2007) and it sees him at his most expressive yet; it is a deeply personal and reflective record that echoes where he is in his life right now and he opens himself up and allows himself the chance to really flourish. Middle of the Road is the running theme throughout the record. "It's about being fully focused and centered in the middle of the road. If you're on the wrong side and in the gravel you're not too good and if you're on the median strip that's not too good either, so being in the middle of the road is the best place to be," according to Eric.

His career took off during the 1960s when he became a regular at the Apollo Theatre in Harlem, and was a favorite guest on the Tonight Show. He was also on Laugh-In and The Ed Sullivan Show. The routine "Christopher Columbus" brought Wilson to the Hollywood industries attention and led to the development of his own television show.

Albert Brooks (born Albert Lawrence Einstein) is an American actor, filmmaker and comedian. A Star Is Bought, originally released on vinyl in 1975, is making its worldwide CD debut. The concept of this album was that Albert has decided to become a massive crossover music star and designed an album to appeal to many different clienteles as possible. He appeals to many famous friends, asking such musicians as Alice Cooper & Linda Rondstadt for advice. Albert King, Andrew Gold and David Geffen make appearances too. This CD will help remind you of how clever his comedy is. A true classic!

Hi, folks,

Today we're going to bring together the sales for Gary's Stash and the Pittsburgh, Anonymous and BB Collections.  All prices have been dropped a couple more dollars (unless, of course, it's already down to $1 and there's LOTS of those), so get'em now before someone else does!  Everything below can be found at http://www.artist-shop.com/sale.htm .  As is usual with collection sales there likely is only one copy of each title below.  So if you see something you want, let me know right away.  If you'd like to order anything you see in today's newsletter, you'll find ordering options at http://www.artist-shop.com/order.htm . Or if you're a regular customer and want to use the info from your last order, feel free to drop me an e-mail with your selections.

 

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.)

Another of your fellow Artist Shop Newsletter subscribers has decided it's time to thin out his collection.  Below you'll find a list of progressive, new age, ambient, pop, rock and a few other genres thrown in for good measure all being let go at a nice price.  (If you need to thin out your own collection, drop me a note and let me know what you've got).   As is usual in the case of such collections, there is only one copy available for each title on the list.  So if you see something you want, let me know ASAP.   You can order at https://www.artist-shop.com/secure.htm .  Or if you're a regular customer and want to use the info from your last order, just email me at artshop@artist-shop.com .
