Dukes of the Orient/Dukes of the Orient ....CD $12.99

Dukes of the Orient/Dukes of the Orient ....CD $12.99

What do you get when you match a Brit from London who loves American AOR with an American from California who grew up on British prog? Dukes of the Orient is the masterful pairing of vocalist John Payne (ex-ASIA, GPS) with keyboardist Erik Norlander (Last in Line, Lana Lane, Rocket Scientists) who now present their eponymous debut album, ten years in the making. Payne's powerful arena-seasoned vocals carry soaring melodies and lush harmonies over the sea of classic synthesizers and keyboards artfully painted with Norlander's signature sonic palette. Payne says of the album, "With Dukes of the Orient we have dug deep with analog soundscapes, superlative musicians and song-driven epics. Add to this the masterful artwork of Rodney Matthews and a journey that started with the supergroup Asia, we give you the next chapter, one we are extremely proud of." 

The two are backed by a world-renown ensemble of top musicians including Jeff Kollman, Guthrie Govan, Moni Scaria and Bruce Bouillet on guitar, Molly Rogers on strings and Jay Schellen on drums. Payne provides bass guitar and additional lead and rhythm guitar parts to complete the audiophile production. The album was mixed on a traditional analog console to preserve and enhance the natural depth, clarity and soul of the tracks with great care taken to avoid over-compression, extreme equalization and distortion. Dukes of the Orient has its origins in 2007 as "Asia featuring John Payne," a band that continued on after ASIA keyboardist, Geoff Downes, left the band to re-form the original 1982 lineup. Payne recruited Norlander to join Guthrie Govan and Jay Schellen for tour dates in the US and initial recordings, some of which endured to appear on the Dukes of the Orient album here. Govan left the band to form The Aristocrats and was replaced by guitarist Bruce Bouillet followed by Jeff Kollman and Moni Scaria. The final lineup resulted in the track, “Seasons Will Change,” released as a video in 2013 and also now appears on the Dukes of the Orient album. Following the death of original ASIA vocalist, John Wetton, in early 2017, Payne and Norlander decided that these recordings should give birth to a new band, both out of respect for Wetton and for clarity with the Downes-led ASIA.

Supertramp/Breakfast in America ....SACD $39.99

Supertramp/Breakfast in America ....SACD $39.99

Supertramp's Breakfast in America has it all: Illustrious artwork. Sing-a-long hooks. Contagious melodies. Symphonic bluster. Rhapsodic thrust. Signature Wurlitzer electric piano sounds. Two Grammy Awards, including one for Best Engineered Album. More than 20 million copies sold. Four Billboard hit singles that continue to dominate radio airplay today. Every aspect of the chart-topping art-rock set screams blockbuster, not the least of which is the production, the result of painstaking studio setups and months of mixing. Indeed, aside from the undeniably catchy nature of the ten tracks, fun remains the most central element of Breakfast in America. The band even titled the record to fall in line with the overall joyful feeling of the material. About the latter: Few late 1970s rock albums feature a more cohesive, harmony-drenched parade of stunningly executed, wondrously arranged works. The collective offspring of members Rick Davies and Roger Hodgson, each tune reflects the creative pulses of each musician, with the resultant contrasts lending to their appeal. Davies' penchant for grittier, bluesy strands blends with Hodgson's witty, pop-leaning techniques. The combination proves unstoppable. Home to a quartet of commercial staples - 'The Logical Song,' 'Goodbye Stranger,' 'Take the Long Way Home,' and the title track - Breakfast in America teems with arena-sized drama, meticulous craftsmanship, and mesmerizing refrains. Shrewd lyrical turns abound, whether on the phonetic, adjective-stacked 'The Logical Song,' life-in-America portrait 'Child of Vision,' or move-to-L.A. saga 'Gone Hollywood.' U.S. references also dot the smash title track, which reflects the glib humor, romantic fantasies, and pop culture permeating the record. Breakfast in America also retains it's vitality because of it's expert instrumentation and placement. Deemed 'a textbook-perfect album of post-Beatles, keyboard-centered English art rock that strikes the shrewdest possible balance between quasi-symphonic classicism and rock & roll' by Rolling Stone shortly after it's release, the record serves as a blueprint of reference-setting production and mixing. Check the scorching guitar outro on 'Goodbye Stranger,' gospel accents on 'Lord Is It Mine,' saxophone lines on 'Take the Long Way Home,' or chemistry of the choruses on basically every piece here. It's enough to make one long for the '70s again.

Jaco Pastorius, Pat Metheny, Bruce Ditmas & Paul Bley/Jaco Pastorius, Pat Metheny, Bruce Ditmas & Paul Bley ....CD $14.99

This was originally a 1974 LP album on Paul Bley's Improvising Artists label. It is notable for being the first professional recording showcasing the talents of Jaco Pastorius and Pat Metheny. The two had gotten to know each other in Miami the year before. Their collaboration continued on Metheny's debut Bright Size Life together with Bob Moses, recorded in December 1975. The record was released the following year by ECM, also home to Bley since his Open, to Love from 1972. Although the original title was Pastorius/Metheny/Ditmas/Bley, it soon became known by the unofficial title of Jac.

Miles Davis/Star People ....import CD $17.99

On this 1983 release, Miles Davis rediscovers the blues. Beside the members of the band from the "We Want Miles" album, the recordings feature John Scofield for the first time, who worked alongside Mike Stern in Davis' band in late 1982 and early 1983 before Stern's departure later in the year. Marcus Miller played on five of the six tracks and would later be replaced by Tom Barney, Al Foster and Mino Cinelu are heard on drums and percussion. Miles Davis plays trumpet and Oberheim synthesizer often at the same time (without using overdubs) and also on separately recorded interludes for the over 18-minute long blues "Star People."

Wobbler/Hinterland ....import CD $25.99

This is the new version of Wobbler's debut album from 2005; remixed and remastered in 2016, now finally released on CD. Hinterland has never sounded better, finally capturing the sound the band initially aimed for back in 2004/2005 when it was mixed by a (then) unexperienced band. The album features tons (literally) of vintage keyboards such as mellotron, hammond organ, etc.

Galahad/Seas of Change ....CD $17.99

Galahad/Seas of Change ....CD $17.99

2018 release, the follow up to the 2017 Quiet Storms album which contained 15 short (ish) tracks and was a much more mellow affair whereas Seas of Change is the polar opposite and consists of just one 43 minute track, creating, what we think is, a full on no holds barred prog/rock rollercoaster of an album. Seas of Change is a kind of hybrid in terms of musical style, featuring more traditional, occasionally pastoral, elements reminiscent of the older Galahad sound whilst also incorporating the heavier guitar and more modern techno keyboard sounds of the last few studio albums. Seas of Change is also the first album to feature Lee Abraham on all guitars following his re-joining of the band in the Spring of 2017. Lee is already familiar to the band and a fully paid up part of the Galahad family having been the band's bass player from 2005 to 2009 and appearing on one of their most critically and commercially successful albums Empires Never Last as well as on a couple of live albums. We feel that Lee has added his own stamp and expanded the Galahad sound palette whilst still retaining the Galahad feel and overall sound. Seas of Change is also Tim Ashton's first appearance on a Galahad album containing completely brand-new material since he appeared on Nothing Is Written back in 1990! As ever the album was pulled together mixed and mastered by engineer/producer extraordinaire Karl Groom (Threshold/Dragonforce/Pendragon/Arena etc.) at Thin Ice Studios in Surrey. Seas of Change features long term honorary member Sarah Bolter who makes an appearance on flute, clarinet and soprano sax.

Gary Brooker/Echoes in the Night ....import CD $17.99

Gary Brooker's 1985 solo debut "Echoes in the Night" was the album for all those fans who had been waiting eight years for a Procol Harum reunion. In addition to Gary Brooker's singing and keyboard work, it featured Procol Harum organist Matthew Fisher, lyricist Keith Reid, and drummer B.J. Wilson. They didn't appear on every track, but when they got together, notably on the title song (which also featured Eric Clapton), "Saw the Fire," and especially the ambitious "Ghost Train," Procol Harum was back. Even when Fisher and Reid weren't collaborating, as on "Mr. Blue Day," Brooker aspired to a 'Procol' approach.

John Mayall/No More Interviews ....import CD $17.99

John Mayall, OBE is a legendary English blues singer, guitarist, organist and songwriter, whose musical career spans over fifty years. In the 1960s, he was the founder of John Mayall & the Bluesbreakers, a band which has counted among it's members some of the most famous blues and blues rock musicians. They include Eric Clapton, Peter Green, Jack Bruce, John McVie, Mick Fleetwood, Mick Taylor, Don "Sugarcane" Harris, Harvey Mandel, Larry Taylor, Aynsley Dunbar, Hughie Flint, Jon Hiseman, Dick Heckstall-Smith, Andy Fraser, Johnny Almond, Walter Trout, Coco Montoya and Buddy Whittington. In the late 1970s his career was often overlooked by Mayall purists, but it included some veritable gems including this album which was recorded & mixed at Kendun Studio D, Los Angeles, California.

Bert Jansch/A Man I'd Rather Be Part 1 ....import 4 CD Box Set $49.99

Bert Jansch/A Man I'd Rather Be Part 1 ....import 4 CD Box Set $49.99

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

Bert Jansch/A Man I'd Rather Be Part 2 ....import 4 CD Box Set $49.99

Bert Jansch/A Man I'd Rather Be Part 2 ....import 4 CD Box Set $49.99

Limited four CD set in 24-page hardback book. A Man I'd Rather Be (Part II) comprises Jansch's late '60s and early '70s output, an under-rated era, no doubt influenced by the now well-established Pentangle sound. Bandmates Danny Thompson (bass) and Terry Cox (drums) regularly feature among the musicians as well as cameo appearances by Mary Hopkin, Toni Visconti and Dave Mattacks. In this period, we see Jansch's take on pop (Nicola), blues (Birthday Blues funnily enough), handsome arrangements (Rosemary Lane) and baroque folk (Moonshine). All of this being conjured during a time when Pentangle was simultaneously releasing albums and constantly touring; to say that the man had a generous talent is something of an understatement. ?The lush orchestration of Nicola was partly recorded by John Wood who would later engineer Nick Drake's recordings at the same studio. The heart melting cover of Birthday Blues contains a set with some of the stalwarts of Bert's solo and Pentangle sets, 'Poison' and 'A Woman Like You' and some of his most arresting work including 'Come Sing a Happy Song' which featured on the soundtrack of Noah Baumbach's The Squid and the Whale in 2005. Rosemary Lane is considered by many to be one of Bert's finest records, a smooth mix of traditional folk such as the title track and 'Reynardine', timeless original compositions like 'Tell Me What Is True Love?' and in 'Alman' and 'Sarabanda', examples of early music including the 16th and 17th/18th centuries, all with the sympathetic production of Bill Leader. Moonshine, Bert's first release after Pentangle split, It was produced by fellow member Danny Thompson and the legendary Tony Visconti, who not only arranged a number of songs but also played on the record. It also features Mary Hopkin duetting with Bert on Ewan MacColl's 'The First Time Ever I Saw Your Face', Aly Bain and Charles Mingus' drummer Charlie Richmon.

Venetian Snares X Daniel Lanois/Venetian Snares X Daniel Lanois ....CD $14.99

Venetian Snares X Daniel Lanois/Venetian Snares X Daniel Lanois ....CD $14.99

"An appetite for the unknown" - Daniel Lanois. No collaboration is unlikely when the end goals are the same. A meeting of two artists who illustrate different corners of the musical landscape, come together to create a new statement that takes their collective strengths to higher elevations and encompasses new terrains. So it is on the first collaborative journey of Canadian musicians Venetian Snares and Daniel Lanois. What started as mutual respect for one another s work, led to several years of a creative germination resulting in an eight-track full-length exploration released May 4th on Timesig/Planet Mu. The path began in 2014, after Lanois reached out to Venetian Snares (Aaron Funk) as a fan of his work. The project started to take root in Summer of 2016, after Funk hung around Toronto between shows. Taking his gear to Lanois studio, the two began to play for the first time together in what would prove to be a formative moment in their creative journey together. I love making music with Dan, he has a real understanding of how to create a world and build what may exist within that world. Bassdrums are trombones and they are a colossal whale which floats on clouds of leaves speaking to the blast furnace feeding the mammoth. A small painting of forest horses hangs in the cranium of the sea horse. Aaron Funk Recorded live in a former Buddhist temple-turned-studio in Toronto, 'Venetian Snares x Daniel Lanois' travels to new zones in what Lanois describes as a body of work driven by exploration . Like all the best collaborations, it's brought something new out of both musicians. Equipped with their production acuity, they let their natural workflow guide them through uncharted waters. Funk laid the groundwork with drums while Lanois rode the pedal steel, weaving their sounds together in a new sonic tapestry. The two ultimately landed at their destination, their work ready to be shared with those willing to explore.

Man/The 1999 Party Tour ....import CD $17.99

Man are one of the most iconic British bands of the last half century. The Man band first came together as the Bystanders in 1964. The band were one of many pop bands in the sixties that were trying to climb the ladder of success and managed to release many singles during the period between 1964 and 1968. The band became Man when Deke Leonard from another Welsh band The Dream joined and the band signed to Pye records. The music that the Man band performed however was very much removed from the pop sensibilities of The Bystanders and more in keeping with the West Coast sound of American bands such as The Quicksilver Messenger Service. The band would record two albums for Pye (Revelation and 2ozs Of Plastic With A Hole In The Middle) before leaving the label to sign with the more progressively minded Liberty records in 1970 and were to remain with the label until 1976 when they signed with MCA. Following the deal with MCA the band released just one more studio album (The Welsh Connection) before announcing their decision to call it a day following one more tour that would be recorded and finally be released as All's Well That Ends Well. Throughout the seventies the band had undergone a number of changes with members coming and going at an alarming rate with Deke Leonard leaving and joining and Martin Ace leaving and also returning briefly. During the years that followed the split the various members all concentrated on solo projects however in 1983 the band decided to re-form and head out on the road and play gigs and record again. And they were just as good as ever, as you can hear on this extraordinary slice of vintage British head music.

The Guess Who/So Long Bannatyne ....CD $14.99

Digitally remastered and expanded edition. The Guess Who proved they could weather a significant personnel change with 1970's triumphant Share the Land. The 1971 follow-up, So Long, Bannatyne saw the band branching out, embracing more eclectic and less polished and commercial material, much of it with a considerably darker hue than the band's earlier material and heavily influenced by John Lennon's visceral Plastic Ono Band. A fascinating lyrical continuity emerges that reveals a band and it's principal writers burdened by success, cynical, tormented; the result being a kind of ad hoc concept record centering around themes of desperation, anger, disillusionment and resignation, topics frontman Burton Cummings would continue to explore throughout the rest of The Guess Who's lifespan.

Paul Kantner & Grace Slick/Sunfighter ....import CD $15.99

Sunfighter is a 1971 album by Paul Kantner and Grace Slick from Jefferson Airplane. The album was released shortly after the Airplane album Bark was released, and is the second record released on the Airplane's own Grunt label, backed by RCA. The album features a picture of Kantner and Slick's baby daughter, China Wing Kantner on the cover and the song "China" is named after her. The song "Sunfighter" is dedicated to Marty Balin, who had formed Jefferson Airplane with Kantner, and "Diana" is about Diana Oughton who was a member of the Weather Underground, an American militant left-wing organization founded on the Ann Arbor campus of the University of Michigan. Many Bay Area musicians perform on the album, including members of the Grateful Dead, Crosby, Stills, and Nash, and the horn group, Tower of Power. The album also features Craig Chaquico who would go on to become the lead guitarist for Jefferson Starship.

Pacific Gas & Electric/Are You Ready ....import CD $17.99

areyou.jpg (17203 bytes)

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

Ritchie Blackmore's Rainbow/Memories in Rock II ....double CD + DVD $18.99

Deluxe two CD + DVD live release including a brand new Rainbow song. Following the successful 2016 shows in Germany (Monsters Of Rock) and the UK, Ritchie Blackmore's Rainbow played three British shows in June 2017, which were recorded for this set. Together with Ronnie Romero (vocals), Jens Johansson (keys), Bob Nouveau (bass), David Keith (drums), Candice Night and Lady Lynn (backing vocals), the legendary guitarist performed a first-class mixture of classic Rainbow and Deep Purple tracks, which was exactly what the fans had requested. Ritchie Blackmore's brilliant guitar work can never be duplicated and is clearly a highlight of every track, but there will also be many Dio, Bonnet or Turner fans who will be very pleasantly surprised - and convinced! - by Ronnie Romero's incredibly powerful vocal performance. Apart from the 19 live tracks in excellent sound quality, this release boasts two further selling-points that will have fans excited: A brand new Rainbow song, 'Waiting For A Sign', as well as a DVD with over 80 minutes of interviews with all band members, a Bonus Backstage Clip and a backstage video clip set to the 2017 studio version of 'I Surrender.'

Love Is, originally released as a double vinyl album in 1968, was Eric Burdon & the Animals' most ambitious effort and it very much epitomizes that period. It's a recording that truly reflects it's times with equal amounts of great musicianship and inspiration. Seven and a half minutes of 'River Deep, Mountain High' opens the album, there's June Carter-Cash's 'Ring of Fire' and the final piece is the seventeen minutes 'Gemini'/'The Madman (Running Through The Fields)' by Zoot Money and a very young upcoming guitar virtuoso named Andy Summers.

"It's true! Mark, Vince, Tim, and Carmine were in California in July (2006) recording an album of Led Zeppelin covers. Mark said, "Basically, we rearranged some songs - we're doing a lot of their stuff Vanilla Fudge style. Some of the arrangements are slowed down, and some speeded up but I think we've done the songs justice."

Spiders from Mars/Spiders from Mars + 2 ....import CD $17.99

Digitally remastered and expanded edition containing two bonus tracks. In 1975 Trevor Bolder (bass) and Mick Woodmansey (drums) reformed the band without Mick Ronson, and were joined in this lineup by Mike Garson (keyboards), Dave Black (guitar) and Pete McDonald (vocals). Their self-titled album, released in 1976, was their only album before the group disbanded. They were subsequently named via the landmark 1972 David Bowie concept album The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust and The Spiders from Mars and were billed as such on the accompanying large-scale Ziggy Stardust tour and film. They were present again on David Bowie's 1973 album Aladdin Sane. The Spiders from Mars CD contains two bonus tracks: "National Poll" and "Roller" (Outtake).

Ry Cooder/Chicken Skin Music ....SACD $39.99

Ry Cooder/Chicken Skin Music ....SACD $39.99

Limited Mobile Fidelity Hybrid SACD. Mastered from the original master tapes. The title of Ry Cooder's Chicken Skin Music - Hawaiian slang for goosebumps - serves as a direct, simple description of the album's emotional appeal. But it barely scratches the surface of a 1976 effort that triggered an interest in 'world music' a decade before the term became commonplace and a genre into and of itself. Part of a series of inimitable mid-1970s records on which Cooder ignored traditional boundaries and instigated lasting cross-cultural communication, Chicken Skin Music blends gospel, Hawaiian, folk, blues, and Tex-Mex styles into a brilliant roots stew distinguished with virtuosic playing and inspired contextual surprises. Mobile Fidelity's SACD of Chicken Skin Music brings the brilliant instrumental textures and lively tonalities to the fore like no prior digital edition. Graced with silent, black backgrounds and generous soundstages, this reissue particularly underscores the depth of Flaco Jimenez's accordion contributions. You'll hear the air flowing through the reeds, pressure resonating from the bellows, and the wide-spanning timbres emanating from the register stops. Equally transfixing are the lifelike manners in which the rich assortment of guitars come alive, with each note occupying it's own space and portraying a character unique to the individual instrument, be it a slack-key, steel, or acoustic guitar. The result is a multi-detailed, organic-sounding musical tapestry that dazzles by way of beautiful interplay, unexpected dialogue, and connective eclecticism that proves music is indeed a common language when executed with a collaborative mindset, innovative exploration, and respectful authenticity - no easy feats, but achievements fully on display on Chicken Skin Music.

Blaine L. Reininger/The Blue Sleep ....CD $17.99

Blaine L. Reininger/The Blue Sleep ....CD $17.99

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

The Residents/Ghost of Hope ....CD $15.99

The Residents/Ghost of Hope ....CD $15.99

Following their long tradition of projects based on narrative themes, The Residents are pleased to announce the release of The Ghost of Hope, an historically accurate album based on train wrecks. Pursuing this theme in both a literal and metaphorical sense, the group discovered a series of vintage news articles highlighting the dangers of train travel in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. Inspired by the era's elegant language, the group then contrasted that eloquence against the sheer horror of these devastating events, resulting in an album that sounds both startlingly new and curiously nostalgic. Using the familiar elements of music, spoken voice, sound effects and audio textures, The Residents have constructed a highly original series of tone poems quite unlike the music of anyone else - except, of course, The Residents. The album features guest collaborator Eric Drew Feldman - who has worked with everybody cool, so he's already in your record collection.

Insurrection is an intense new instrumental project featuring guitar wizards Julian Lage and Matt Hollenberg with the incredible rhythm section of Trevor Dunn and Kenny Grohowski. Inspired by some of the greatest experimental novels of the 20th century the music is incredibly varied, combining rock, funk, blues, jazz, classical and more - often in the same song! Gnarly atonal melodies, bizarre harmonies, astonishing guitar fireworks and telepathic group interaction make this one of Zorn's most scintillating and adventurous new projects. Everyone is playing at their best here, and you have never heard such sounds! As always Zorn pulls the very best out of the musicians and they play some of the most outrageous solos you have ever heard.

Henry Kaiser/Deep Unreal ....import CD $25.99

Henry Kaiser/Deep Unreal ....import CD $25.99

From the resurrected Metalanguage label comes a new release; freshly recorded in December of 2017. Immediately after returning from his 12th deployment to Antarctica as a Scientific Diver, Henry Kaiser recorded this musical translation of 43 scientific dives installing an underwater remote sensing system under the ice near McMurdo Station. Kaiser has previously released 7 CDs of music inspired by his years working on and beneath the ice. The live electric guitar solos here are, perhaps, his favorite among that series of releases. Beautiful, mysterious, complex, and surprising - the guitar playing mirrors what it is like to enter the alien world below the ice. Kaiser received an Academy Award nomination for his production, cinematography and soundtrack work on Werner Herzog's Encounters at the End of the World, the documentary about people and science in the Antarctic. He knows from direct experience what he is playing about here. Kaiser s sub-surface explorations are fantastical, however much they are created in the mundane world. Each sonic incident has its counterpart below the ice, but not all of the guitarist's companions are his everyday scientific dive buddies. Imagine Conlon Nancarrow in a Day-Glo drysuit, Pete Cosey strapping on his midnight blue tanks, Robbie Basho with paisley fins, as Jerry Garcia gazes through a prismatic ice mask: Henry's ghostly companions, on a mission to go deep and unreal.

Splinter/Streets at Night ....CD $14.99

Splinter/Streets at Night ....CD $14.99

It has been said that legendary Beatles guitarist George Harrison, despite not being into the idea when Apple Records was first mooted, became so enamored of being a record company executive that he and Ringo wanted to buy Apple Records rather than have it stagger off into insolvency. As history shows, this didn't happen but, in 1974, he launched his own label Dark Horse Records. The most commercially successful act on the label was a duo called Splinter, whose debut album and single were both international hits. Although the duo of Purvis and Elliott continued to perform together until 1984, this 1977 record, the first recorded after they left Dark Horse for pastures new is still an unrecognised masterpiece. This is an extraordinary record, and one which I seriously hope is going to make more friends now than it did when it first came out.

Gordon Giltrap/Peace Will Fall ....import CD $17.99

Over the past forty five years Gordon Giltrap has graced the music business with his dedication to his craft and his affection for his audience. As one of the UK's most respected guitarists he has consistently proved the adage that respect cannot be bought. It must be earned. Although Gordon has collaborated on some of his albums over the years with other musicians this is the very first time it has been with a singer and a songwriter (Carol Lee Sampson and Martin Green). Peace Will Fall is an album that blends exquisitely Gordon's guitar and Carol's voice. As one reviewer said Gordon's guitar playing is difficult to categorize-it's not folk, or rock or classical, but there are elements of all these in his music. His style is simply his own-and there is something very English about his music

Tangerine Dream/Live at Coventry Cathedral 1975 - Directors Cut ....import DVD $21.99

Film director Tony Palmer had always been deeply unsatisfied with his film of legendary Krautrock band Tangerine Dream. For one thing it had contained the wrong music. Palmer explains: "Well, it was a cunning piece of Richard Bransonism! That is, it was the soundtrack of the yet-to-be-released album. So, he was doing a cunning bit of PR, because what they played in Coventry cathedral was music from two existing albums and that was of no interest to him whatsoever. What was interesting for Richard, and what was important for Richard - I respect that, of course - was to promote the new, not-yet-released album. And I was a sucker, and I fell for it, and we cut all the pictures to the new, yet-to-be-released album. So what we've done this time is we've actually gone back and listened again to the music they did actually play, and of course now, I realize that it was quite different. And I've had to recut not all the pictures, but a great many of the pictures to that soundtrack that was the music that they actually played. So, for the first time, we've got a decent cover, a proper restoration of the pictures, AND the real sound!"

Various Artists/Deutsche Elektronische Musik 3: Experimental ....double CD $22.99

Various Artists/Deutsche Elektronische Musik 3: Experimental ....double CD $22.99

This latest instalment in Soul Jazz Records successful Deutsche Elektronische Musik series delves deeper into the German nation's vaults to bring a fascinating new collection that again brings together a selection of classic German electronic and rock groups, including Neu!, Cluster, Popol Vuh, La Dusseldorf, Agitation Free, alongside a host of rare tracks by lesser known artists which includes Michael Bundt, Broselmaschine, Dronsz, Achim Reichel and others. The music of Deutsche Elektronische Musik 3 ranges from the introverted pastoralism of Hans Joachim Roedelius and Broselmaschine, to the angular and futuristic electronic experimentations of Klauss Weiss, Pyrolator, Deuter, Michael Bundt and others, to the proto-punk of La Düsseldorf and the heavy space, progressive and cosmic rock of Missus Beastly, Niagara and Dyzan. The music on Deutsche Elektronische Musik 3 was all recorded in the 1970s up to the early 1980s, at a time when forward-thinking German electronic and rock groups were searching for a new musical identity in order to separate themselves from both the cultural legacy of post-world war two Germany as well the cultural imperialism of USA and UK rock. In this process German groups created some of the most unique and inspired music, the defining motorik beat alongside a host of ethno-musical influences from far afield including Turkey, India, Brazil as well as the musical and futurist possibilities of developments in electronics and technology itself. The new extensive sleevenotes are by David Stubbs, who is the author of the acclaimed book, Future Days: Krautrock and the Building of Modern Germany (Faber & Faber).

Klaus Schulze/Angst ....import CD $20.99

Re-release of the impressive Klaus Schulze album Angst - soundtrack for the disturbing movie of the same title by Gerald Kragl. Originally released in 1984. The film was actually shot after Klaus Schulze's score. He got the script and on the basis of the script, he wrote the music. Director Kragl told him, You can write the music as you like - just stick to the script! I will cut the film to the music, not adapting the music to the film. Normally, the music takes its cue from the film but in this case it was the other way around. So Klaus had a lot of freedom and could compose real songs. Some of the music is outright scary but just perfect for Halloween.

Simon Phillips/Protocol 4 ....CD $14.99

Simon Phillips/Protocol 4 ....CD $14.99

Simon Phillips, drummer & producer extraordinaire has upped the ante with his newest instrumental recording Protocol 4. Building on his past Protocol projects, Simon has again enlisted the highly talented bassist Ernest Tibbs along with Protocol newcomers, the superb veteran guitar shredder Greg Howe and keyboard virtuoso Dennis Hamm. All compositions were written by Simon while on tour. "The first time I've really been able to concentrate on writing material on the road. Lots of creativity on airplanes and in hotel and backstage dressing rooms," says Phillips. Perhaps the vibe and energy of touring accounts for the slightly more "metallic edge" to this new album. But, as is always the case, Simon's music defies specific labels as he fuses elements of rock, jazz, funk, classical and even world music into the mix. A case in point being the track "Celtic Run" combining a Celtic rhythmic motif with blazing guitar and synthesizer leads all held together with Phillips signature ultra-tight drumming and Tibbs ever solid bass work. "Passage to Agra" is a rhythmic musical excursion to an exotic foreign land. The tracks "Pentangle" and "Solitaire" both contain some super funky grooves underlying jaw dropping metallic jazz/rock soloing. Greg Howe's guitar work shines throughout the recording, perhaps no more so than the plaintive and anthem-like track "Phantom Voyage." Dennis Hamm's keyboard work is stunning on each and every track, whether he's soloing or adding lush orchestration. The album concludes with the monster high energy fusion track "Azorez." In addition to awesome musicianship, Simon's impeccable production and recording technique shine once more on this album. Protocol 4 is certain to please longstanding Simon Phillips aficionados and is certain to also bring new Protocol fans into the fold.

Cymbeline/1965 - 1971 ....import CD $18.99

Cymbeline/1965 - 1971 ....import CD $18.99

Previously unreleased DIY homemade psychedelia, teen beat, and fuzz-psych/prog by the amazing Swedish band Cymbeline, recorded from 1965-1971. Tracks like "Third Image" or "Look at the Stars" are an incredible find for anyone into US garage-psych (they wouldn't sound out of place on any Pebbles or Psychedelic Unknowns volume) and others like "Flicka," "Stolta Vingar," or "Mittuppslag" are top-notch, '70s fuzzed-out Scandinavian psych/prog. Formed in the industrial town of Norrkoping in the mid '60s, Cymbeline (also known as Motala Strom and W&J) only released a 45 in 1971 before breaking up. But during their existence, the band recorded a lot of stuff, included here for the first time along with their rare 45. Cymbeline was basically two guys, Michael Journath and Anders Weyde, who met in 1965 while they both played in beat bands. They started recording songs at Anders's little home studio with help with some friends, and that's how songs like "Imagination" and "Look at the Stars" - amazing examples of homemade teen beat - were born. At the same time, Michael and Anders were feeling a bit tired of playing cover versions with their beat bands, so they decided to start recording more experimental stuff, using armchairs and furniture as percussion, sounds from seagulls and birds, an electric cocktail mixer, and improvising lyrics - these incredible experiments were recorded as "Images," including the killer garage-psych sounding "Third Image." As the years passed by, the home studio improved and new songs were recorded in a more psych-prog vein, some of them included here. They also played a few live gigs with some help from other local musicians. In 1970, Ulf Ryberg joined the group and soon after a 45 was released containing his song "New York." The flip side was "Sixth Image," originally one of the "Images" but rearranged and re-recorded (1971). In 1971, demos for an LP were recorded at Europafilm Studios in Stockholm. Two fantastic songs are included here and the sound is different from the earlier recordings - closer to the groups live performances. So, 40 years later, here is the LP that Cymbeline always dreamed of. Remastered sound. Insert with photos and liner notes by band member Michael Journath.

Out of print in the U.S.! The Eleventh House was an important jazz fusion group of the 1970s led by the guitarist Larry Coryell. The band was formed in 1973 and disbanded in 1976 and alongside bands such as The Mahavishnu Orchestra, Weather Report and Return to Forever, is considered to be one of the pioneering jazz rock bands of the mid-1970s. Other band members were Randy Brecker (trumpet), Mike Mandel (keyboards), Danny Trifan (bass) and Alphonse Mouzon on drums. Level One is The Eleventh House's second album and was released in 1975. The album reached #23 on Billboard magazine's Jazz album chart and #163 on the Billboard 200 chart. Considered by some to be "a forgotten gem from the fusion era" that captures the band at their creative and technical peak.

Umphrey's McGee/It's Not Us ....CD $15.99

Umphrey's McGee entered I.V. Labs Studio in Chicago in November of 2016 to record what would become the band's eleventh full-length studio album. The result was It's Not Us, the most vibrant, mature expression of the band's growing studio prowess to date. "We decided to go in for a week, live, eat, and breathe Umphrey's McGee," recalls Joel.   "We're known as a strong live band, but we take so much pride in our writing. [In this album] the focus is on that writing."

Richard Thompson/Live at Rockpalast ....import 3 CD + 2 DVD Set $25.99

Richard Thompson/Live at Rockpalast ....import 3 CD + 2 DVD Set $25.99

Three CDs and two DVDs of Richard Thompson live in 1983 and 1984. In 1983, Thompson went on tour to promote his current album "'Hand of Kindness." For the show on December 12, 1983, at the Hamburg Markthalle the WDR also put up their cameras to record the event for the Rockpalast. The studio crew from the recording sessions of "Hand of Kindness" was also present live. Among them three musicians who stood on stage with Thompson with Fairport Cnvention more than ten years before: Simon Nicol, Dave Pegg and Dave Mattacks. Nearly seven weeks later, on January 26, 1984 Richard Thompson & Band gave another concert in the French luxury resort Cannes on occasion of MIDEM being recorded by the WDR as well. Gerry Conway, today the drummer with the still active folk rock institution Fairport Convention, replaced Dave Mattacks, Rory McFarlane (bass) came for Dave Pegg who had to go into the studio to record a new album with his band Jethro Tull. In both concerts it is to be heard how well the musicians know each other and how they have been harmonizing for years. They are building an integrated whole with Richard Thompson. They carry the music of their ''boss'' and give him the lightness and the leeway to fully unfold his potential. Both concerts are an absolute must for every Thompson fan.

Green & Philharmonic Orchesterhagen/Symphonic Floyd ....double CD $28.99

Green & Philharmonic Orchesterhagen/Symphonic Floyd ....double CD $28.99

Atom Heart Mother and some more by Pink Floyd in an outstanding symphonic style! After having performed several sold out concerts with the philharmonic orchesterhagen, the philharmonic chorhagen and the kinderchor, the German band project Green (with members of Gorbschnitt, Faithful Breath and Extrabreit) received many requests for a live recording of this extraordinary event. Since they've also been overwhelmed by the reaction of the audience and the unique atmosphere, the band finally tried to catch the special live feeling of these concerts on CD. The idea of playing the music of Pink Floyd in a symphonic style has been on their minds for a long time. Especially the live performance of the outstanding Atom Heart Mother - a composition that is only playable with orchestra and choir - held a particular fascination. Arranging the songs for band and orchestra took nearly a whole year. Luckily, Green worked together with Andres Reukauf, an excellent and experienced arranger who was on the same wavelength as the band. Additionally, there were the orchestra and choirs who were able to implement and adapt all ideas. However, Green has never been a band that tries to sound like the original. When they play songs by other artists, they always do it in their own unique way. Therefore, you won´t hear a double of Pink Floyd but a band that, together with an orchestra, tries to adapt these great Pink Floyd compositions in its own way.

Kyle Dixon & Michael Stein/Stranger Things 2 [Netflix Original Series Soundtrack] ....CD $15.99

Original soundtrack to the Netflix series. A love letter to the '80s classics that captivated a generation, Stranger Things is set in 1983 Indiana, where a young boy vanishes into thin air.

Volume 2 features completely different music from Vol. 1, and is the second half of the full Stranger Things soundtrack. This installment continues to wander through the '80s world of Stranger Things, floating between the sweeter moments which temporarily blossom amidst the danger and decay as the season comes to an end. The music is instantly reminiscent of works by John Carpenter, Tangerine Dream and Vangelis, whilst also delving into the ambience of Aphex Twin and more modern composers such as Cliff Martinez.

Electric Sandwich/Electric Sandwich ....import CD $18.99

Hiatus present a reissue of Electric Sandwich's self-titled album, originally released in 1972. Bonn, Germany, the birthplace of not only Ludwig van Beethoven, but Arktis, Satin Whale, and Electric Sandwich. The stature of progressive rock or what we term as "krautrock" is not widely considered to be quite as tall as the classical giants, but Jochen Carthaus, Jorg Ohlert, Klaus Lormann, and Wolf Fabian made their own impressive and historic niche in 1972 with the release of their eponymous self-titled album for Hamburg's progressive outlet: Brain Records. Includes two bonus tracks; professionally re-mastered from original sound recordings. Includes interviews, background liners, and rare archival photographs.

The Residents/I Murdered Mommy ....import CD $19.99

The Residents/I Murdered Mommy ....import CD $19.99

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

The Guess Who/American Woman [Deluxe Edition] ....double CD $20.99

The Guess Who/American Woman [Deluxe Edition] ....double CD $20.99

Digitally remastered and expanded deluxe two CD edition. The Guess Who's most successful album begins with the one-two punch of the title track and "No Time," the first single from the album. The original album sustained a chart run that lasted for more than a year, produced three hit singles and sent the band's career to new heights. Curiously following the successes came such turmoil that after an aborted attempt at the next album founding member Randy Bachman found himself on the outside of the band looking in. This expanded edition of the album features single edits, unreleased tracks from the album sessions and different takes on album tracks as well as material that was attempted but not released. The second disc is comprised of the tracks that were meant to be released as the follow-up album. Though these tracks, with Randy, were never completely finished they were released by RCA in 1976 as an album called The Way They Were. Once Randy departed the band decided to start the recording process over completely with new members Kurt Winter and Greg Leskiw and produced the highly successful Share the Land album. The in-depth essay by co-producer Ralph Chapman documents the sometimes confusing events surrounding the wonderful music created during the turbulence of the band's situation. This release is remastered from the original tapes by Vic Anesini and has never sounded better.

Rare Earth in Concert is a live album by rock band Rare Earth, which was released as a double-LP in 1971. It contains a 23:33 version of their signature hit "Get Ready," as well as a studio song: "Nice To Be With You." It was issued a RIAA gold record award.

Sun Ra/Monorails & Satellites ....CD $16.99

Sun Ra/Monorails & Satellites ....CD $16.99

CD reissue. This is an album of solo piano compositions by the American jazz musician Sun Ra, (real name Herman Poole Blount) recorded in 1966. The album showcases Ra's skills as a pianist, which are often compared to Cecil Taylor's. Monorails and Satellites, a 1966 solo piano recording, showcases Ra's unique style, which bridges the bluesy architecture of Jelly Roll Morton with the angularity of Monk and Cecil Taylor's ascent beyond traditional structure. According to Ra's biographer, John Szwed, the title might refer to Stanley Kubrick's 2001, featuring a monolith that Ra remembered as a monorail, 'perhaps connecting it to his UFO experience.' Both albums shared the same sleeve of disembodied hands playing a keyboard that seems to be plugged directly into Saturn.

Brian Auger + Julie Driscoll & The Trinity/Untold Tales of the Holy Trinity .....CD $14.99

Brian Auger + Julie Driscoll & The Trinity/Untold Tales of the Holy Trinity .....CD $14.99

In May 1968, Brian Auger and the Trinity & Julie Driscoll were part of an international rock 'n' roll disaster. That fiasco created a stash of urgent, commanding recordings, capturing a golden moment that took half a century to reach the wider world. A year after Monterey Pop but a year before Woodstock, The Pop Musica Festival was envisioned as a four-day event in Rome featuring musicians from all over the world: Donovan, Pink Floyd, The Byrds, Traffic, Captain Beefheart and Fairport Convention were just a few of the acts lined up for the big Roman blowout. Poor planning, inadequate sound and an underwhelming turnout made the festival a flop and Auger, Driscoll and company ended up at the Piper Club. And that potent Piper set is paired here with an equally intense appearance at Ce Soir On Danse in Paris, from the previous month. In 1968, the partnership between keyboardist Brian Auger and singer Julie Driscoll was at its peak; the blend of psychedelia and post-mod soul that powered their radical reinventions of Bob Dylan's This Wheel's on Fire and Donovan's Season of the Witch earned them both the embrace of the emerging counterculture and a place on the British pop charts. The Ce Soir On Danse set opens with Auger a deep-swinging take on Wes Montgomery's Bumpin' on Sunset. Driscoll turns up on the third song, as she pushes Auger and the lads into Aretha Franklin's Save Me. On the final Paris cut, Auger weds his organ-trio jazz influences with the psychedelic sorcery of the time on an instrumental version of The Beatles' A Day in the Life. The Rome set begins with Auger displaying his prowess on Mose Allison's If You Live. That tone is amplified in a spooky Season of the Witch, with Driscoll's soul-inflected vocal bouncing off the band's vibe.The eerie mood segues into the apocalyptic of This Wheel's on Fire. This is a magical double-header of live material from the band's heyday, a phenomenon as rare as the proverbial hen's tooth

This is the superb follow-up to 2016's The Seasons Turn. Lee Abraham: "The album features seven new songs that have a slightly different feel to my previous albums. Still very much a prog blueprint, but I have explored more AOR influences on this album with nods to Toto, Asia and FM. Once again the album will feature my core band of Gerald Mulligan on drums, Rob Arnold on piano and Alistair Begg on bass, with me handling all guitars and keys. Vocals feature stunning performances from Dec Burke, Marc Atkinson, Gary Chandler, Robin Armstrong, Simon Godfrey and the ever stunning Steve Overland! Lyrical themes touch on love and relationships, both good and bad and also how in modern life bad things happen yet we just seem to carry on, almost ignoring it all.." Artwork produced by Robin Armstrong (Cosmograf).

Greg Lake/Live in Piacenza ....import CD $24.99

Recorded in sound demonstration quality this is the documentary of Greg Lake's last tour, recorded on November 28, 2012 in a sold out Teatro Municipale in Piacenza. It was a very special, magical evening, as Greg remembered in his outstanding autobiography, Lucky Man. The concert was a triumph and eventually on January 9, 2016 the trustees of Conservatorio Nicolini of Piacenza gave Greg Lake the first honorary degree ever given by the Conservatorio. This is a wonderful record, bringing the "Songs of a Lifetime" project to its highest point. Exclusively for this concert, Greg performed with some special guests: Le Orme's leader Aldo Tagliapietra, ex PFM and Acqua Fragile's great vocalist Bernardo Lanzetti and the young and talented Annie Barbazza, making the Piacenza show even more special and rare.

Neal Morse/Life & Times ....CD $16.99

Neal Morse/Life & Times ....CD $16.99

Now in his mid-fifties and his children grown up, there is a sense on his new album, Life & Times, that Morse is looking around and taking stock. "I've come through a lot of difficult times and I'm in a fairly content place now," he says. "You can feel that on some of the songs." Much of this ‘acoustic-orientated, singer/songwriter' album was written while he was travelling around the world on "The Road Called Home" tour in 2017, with some of the songs being inspired by the places he visited, while others are from spending time with his family.  For example, "Manchester" is a musical portrait of that notorious rarity - a sunny day in Manchester, England - when Morse was sitting in a coffee shop watching the world go by. "Selfie in the Square" captures what he saw walking around Luxembourg City, hearing the cathedral bells and children playing, but realizing what a difference it makes to share these experiences. "Luxembourg was really nice, but I knew that if my wife was there, it would feel like a holiday, so I wrote a song about it to send to her," he explains.  Some of these slice-of-life portraits also resonate with other people's heartaches, such as "Joanna," which focuses on Morse's son dealing with the loss of a relationship and -  most poignantly - "He Died at Home," about a mother's grief over the loss of her soldier son.  Life & Times gives listeners the chance to hear a different but equally powerful side of this artist's musical heart.

Tangerine Dream/Quantum Gate ....import CD $16.99

Tangerine Dream/Quantum Gate ....import CD $16.99

Tangerine Dream have been a fundamental influence on electronic and progressive music since their formation in West Berlin, 1967.  Inspiring genres, musicians and other art forms, from The Future Sound of London to Porcupine Tree, the widely popular TV show Stranger Things (for which their music also featured in) to seminal video game Grand Theft Auto V (for which they helped to write the soundtrack). The group have also received seven Grammy nominations, written over 100 studio albums and were lead by Edgar Froese, who developed an instantly recognizable synth-based instrumental music based on a meditative musical experience that came to prominence in the '70s and '80s. Quantum Gate promises an updated, contemporary development of their trademark sound: sequencer-driven electronica covering a wide range of moods and atmospheres from ambient soundscapes to energetic, upbeat moments. The album began as a concept and series of musical sketches by Froese before he passed away in 2015. Remaining band members Thorsten Quaeschning, Ulrich Schnauss and Hoshiko Yamane worked together to realize Edgar's visions and expectations of a conceptual album that attempts to translate quantum physics and philosophy into music. New member Ulrich Schnauss comments: "At the moment hardly any other area of science questions our concept of reality (linearity of time etc. ) as profoundly as research in Quantum physics - it's no surprise therefore that Edgar was drawn to these ideas since he had always aimed at reminding listeners of the existence of 'unopened doors.'

Daniel Cavanagh/Monochrome ....import CD $17.99

Daniel Cavanagh/Monochrome ....import CD $17.99

Monochrome is the stunning debut album from Daniel Cavanagh of Anathema. Inspired by internal feelings of love and loss, Monochrome is a deeply reflective and personal offering. Cavanagh elaborates: "The album has a late night, candlelit feeling, evoking the light of dusk as the summer sun sinks below the horizon, setting the scene for thoughts and meditations that many people will relate to. A lot of this material could easily have made it on to the last Anathema album (or any future Anathema album) as that's how highly the band rate it. There are several highlights for me and The Exorcist and The Silent Flight of the Raven Winged Hours are among some of my best works of the last decade. Taking them from the band was not an easy decision but I am glad; they're so personal as to not need more input." Anneke Van Giersbergen guests and Anna Phoebe provides violin on three of the album tracks. Recorded at Grammy Award-winning Parr Street Studios, engineered by Andrea Wright, mastered by Anathema's Daniel Cardoso, and with artwork by illustrator Danny Branscombe, Monochrome is a special addition to the Kscope catalogue.

Godsticks/Faced with Rage ....import CD $17.99

Fresh off a European tour with The Pineapple Thief, Godsticks went into the studio to finish work on 2017's Faced with Rage. As hard-hitting as the band's self-released 2015 album Emergence, Faced with Rage burns with a fearless energy and introduces a more industrial sound into the Godsticks mix. Lyrically the album explores the theme of people dealing with emotional conflict in various scenarios. It features for the first time a four-piece line up, with drummer Tom Price bringing a more aggressive playing style to back up Darran Charles' highly developed vocal technique. The drums and vocals were recorded at the world renowned Monnow Valley Studio in Wales (Led Zeppelin, Black Sabbath, Rush and Manic Street Preachers).

White Moth Black Butterfly/Atone ....CD $15.99

White Moth Black Butterfly/Atone ....CD $15.99

Daniel Tompkins (TesseracT) and Keshav Dhar (founder of one of India's biggest rock bands Skyharbor) join forces in experimental pop project White Moth Black Butterfly.   Daniel Tompkins began WMBB as a creative outlet outside of his writing for rock band TesseracT.  Giving voice to his wider musical influences from Massive Attack, Enigma, Sigur Ros, David Bowie, Michael Jackson, Tool, Dredg and Thrice, Tompkins teamed up with Keshav Dhar after the two had collaborated previously on early Skyharbor material.   Atone is built on organic, textured and cinematic sounds and revolves around two opposing themes of loss and hope.  Tompkins explains - "Whilst songs like 'Tempest' and 'Atone' focus on faith and forgiveness, others like 'Rising Sun' and 'An Ocean Away' linger on love and nostalgia; throwing the listener into a bygone world of having less and caring more. The front cover artwork captures the beauty of nature and the harsh realities of life: power and dominance. White Moth Black Butterfly represents that very same struggle." The album was recorded across the globe at studios in India, the UK, US and Taiwan, bringing in an international roster of performers. This included the band's other writers, Randy Slaugh (the producer and string arranger for Skyharbor who has worked with Devin Townsend and Periphery) and co-singer and lyricist Jordan Turner.

Lunatic Soul/Fractured ....import CD $14.99

Lunatic Soul/Fractured ....import CD $14.99

Lunatic Soul's cinematic fifth studio release represents a journey of personal catharsis for Mariusz Duda (Riverside). Mariusz explains, "The main theme of Fractured is coming back to life after a personal tragedy. It's inspired by what happened in my life in 2016 and by everything that's happening around us and what's making us turn away from one another and divide into groups, for better and for worse. Musically it's the most original album I have ever made." As well as representing a conceptual development, Duda experimented more with electronics and rhythm on this release taking inspiration from the likes of Massive Attack, Depeche Mode, Peter Gabriel and David Sylvian. The album features the Sinfonietta Consonus Orchestra on two of the most personal tracks, plus saxophonist Marcin Odyniec who first worked with Duda in Riverside. The album was recorded in Poland at Serakos Studio and Custom 34 Studio, mixed by Magda & Robert Srzedniccy and Mariusz Duda. The artwork was created by the renowned cover artist Travis Smith, whose previous work includes the likes of Opeth and Riverside.

Paul Draper/Spooky Action ....CD $15.99

Paul Draper/Spooky Action ....CD $15.99

Paul Draper was the frontman of Mansun - one of the most iconic bands of the late '90s. Over the course of three albums (a fourth issued posthumously), they achieved something unique - after fostering a fervent cult following, they managed to maintain critical and commercial success with a series of intensely radio friendly yet increasingly experimental records. Off the back of their biggest radio record, Mansun imploded in 2003 and Paul all but disappeared from view.  Released on Kscope, Spooky Action is the result of a decade of thinking, tinkering, writing, recording and focusing.  Lyrically, it's biting and brutally honest - an autobiography set to captivating, addictive melody across eleven songs that peak then peak again, then peak again. Taking its cue from 2016's two EP releases and recorded in collaboration with Catherine AD (the Anchoress) and long time Mansun collaborator PDub.  The record's eleven tracks veer from warped voodoo psych (Don't Poke the Bear) to glistening synthetic soul (Things People Want); from warped, razor wire rock'n'roll (Grey House) to glorious widescreen analogue pop music (Jealousy Is a Powerful Emotion). Collectively, they represent Paul's strongest, most consistent set of songs to date - half a lifetime's work condensed into just over an hour of perfectly formed music.

Many of the sounds on the album bear no relationship with traditional guitar, but there are no synthesisers or additional instruments employed at all (bar Durant playing fretless bass on four pieces).

Face is a 2017 release from Pat Mastelotto and Markus Reuter.   Housed in a surreal cover featuring artwork by Tool's Adam Jones, Face consists of a 35 minute-long instrumental rich in detail and panoramic in scope.  Boasting sixteen guest contributors, including Steven Wilson (on 'vocal chords'), David Lynch collaborator Chrysta Bell, The Rembrandts' Danny Wilde, Tim Motzer and Luca Calbrese, Face was nine years in the making.  Combining the duo's trademark experimental approach with echoes of Mike Oldfield's melodicism, King Crimson's complexity, Chris Squire's storming bass and Pink Floyd's languid soloing, the link to an epic progressive rock vocabulary is unmistakable.  CD in special high-size digipak.

Martin Springett/The Gardening Club ....import CD $17.99

Martin Springett/The Gardening Club ....import CD $17.99

A lost - Canterbury and Genesis flavoured - prog gem from 1983, The Gardening Club was the debut album by illustrator Martin Springett. Containing 12 string guitars and flutes galore alongside the clean sheen of a typical 1980s production.  Martin Springett is an extraordinary artist, and was a friend of the legendary Pauline Baynes. He was born in Crayford, Kent, England, in 1947. He studied art (that is he learned to play the guitar) for two semesters at the Brassey School of Art in Hastings, Sussex. He emigrated to the West Coast of Canada in 1965, but returned to the UK in 1973 to pursue music in various bands. He spent time in Germany, and toured through Europe. While in London Martin started to illustrate and design record covers for Columbia records. Upon his return to Vancouver, Martin carried on with music and illustrated various books and magazines. In 1978 he moved to Toronto, maintaining activity in every area where illustration is required. He released his own album, "The Gardening Club," in 1983. This is a gloriously melodic and original album, and we are very pleased to bring it back into the public eye for the first time in many decades.

Aug 1970: With Jim's ongoing Miami obscenity trial casting a shadow over the band, The Doors flew to the IOW.  They took the stage at 2am and showed fans they still had the magic.  "We played with a controlled fury and Jim was in fine vocal form," said Ray Manzarek.

Django Bates' Beloved/The Study of Touch ....CD $17.99

British pianist Django Bates, an original member of Bill Bruford's Earthworks, returns to ECM with one of his very finest constellations - three highly individual players subtly challenge the conventions of the jazz piano trio. Bates' freewheeling, free-flowing virtuosic melodic sense. The terse, percussive edge of Eldh's bass provides momentum and drummer Bruun details the music with an almost painterly touch. In the crowded world of the piano trio, Beloved has developed a sound all its own.

Anouar Brahem/Blue Maqams ....CD $17.99

Released on the occasion of Anouar Brahem's 60th birthday, Blue Maqams offers many reasons to celebrate. Recorded in New Yorks Avatar Studios in May 2017 and produced by Manfred Eicher, it brings the Tunisian oud master together with three brilliant improvisers: the Maqams of the title refers to the Arabic modal music system, rendered kind of blue by the jazz players. For Anouar Brahem and Dave Holland the album marks a reunion: they first collaborated 20 years ago on the very widely-acclaimed Thimar album. Brahem meets Jack DeJohnette for the first time here, but Holland and DeJohnette have been frequent musical partners over the last half-century beginning with ground-breaking work with Miles Davis their collaborations are legendary. British pianist Django Bates, an original member of Bill Bruford's Earthworks band, also rises superbly to the challenge of Brahems compositions. And Anouar in turn is inspired to some of his most outgoing playing.

Anthony Phillips/Private Parts & Pieces IX - XI ....import 4 CD Box Set $35.99

Anthony Phillips/Private Parts & Pieces IX - XI ....import 4 CD Box Set $35.99

Esoteric Recordings is proud to announce the release of a four CD clamshell boxed set anthology by legendary guitarist, composer and instrumentalist Anthony Phillips. Anthony was a founding member of Genesis alongside Peter Gabriel, Mike Rutherford and Tony Banks with whom he recorded the albums "From Genesis to Revelation" and "Trespass." After leaving the group in 1970, Anthony studied orchestration and harmony externally at the Guildhall School of Music and Drama in London. After passing his LGSM exams, he taught music at Reeds School and Peper Harrow whilst continuing to compose and record in his home studio.  He marked his return to the commercial music scene with the release of his debut solo album "The Geese & The Ghost" in 1977 and continued to create a large and diverse output as a recording artist on albums such as "Wise After the Event," "Sides," "Slow Dance," "1984" and "Field Day." Alongside these releases, Anthony is known for the successful series of the Private Parts & Pieces albums. Beginning in 1978, the first four volumes featured an extensive range of music recorded by Ant for various projects (going as far back as 1972) and came to be regarded by fans as essential collections of his wide and diverse compositional work.  Now, Anthony Phillips and Jonathan Dann have compiled this four disc deluxe set, which gathers together Volumes IX to XI of the Private Parts & Pieces albums, Dragonfly Dreams, Soiree and City of Dreams, along with an additional 18-track CD of previously unreleased material, Private Parts and Extra Pieces III, featuring recordings made between 1991 and 2012. Private Parts & Pieces IX - XI is the definitive statement on these classic albums. The set includes a lavish booklet with an essay by Jonathan Dann and fully restores the artwork of the original releases.

Colosseum II/War Dance [Remastered Edition] ....import CD $20.99

Esoteric Recordings are pleased to announce the release of a newly re-mastered edition of the classic 1977 album by Colosseum II "War Dance." The album was the final record release by the band. Orginally formed in 1975 by virtuoso drummer Jon Hiseman, Colosseum II also featured legendary guitarist Gary Moore, keyboard player Don Airey and, in it's first incarnation, Mike Starrs (vocals) and Neil Murray (bass). Following the release of the album "Strange New Flesh," Starrs and Murray departed and bass guitarist John Mole joined the fold, with Gary Moore undertaking vocal duties. This line-up recorded "Electric Savage" in early 1977 and this, their final album, later that year. Never officially issued on CD in the UK, this Esoteric Recordings edition has been newly re-mastered from the original MCA Records master tapes and the booklet restores the original album artwork and features an essay by Malcolm Dome with an exclusive interview with Jon Hiseman.

Peter Banks/Be Well Be Safe Be Lucky... The Anthology ....import double CD $16.99

From Esoteric distributor Cherry Red - Peter Banks was one of the original members of Yes and an accomplished guitarist, but sadly passed away in 2013.  This set is being released in his memory, by his estate, during the 5th anniversary of his passing and the 50th Anniversary of Yes.  This is the FIRST EVER compilation of his solo career.   This set includes 'Knights (Reprise)' which features Phil Collins, Steve Hackett and the late John Wetton.  This set also includes the first release of the short instrumental 'Knights (Revisited)' which features Billy Sherwood, Jay Schellen and Tony Kaye of Yes.  The second disc features numerous rarities, (including two previously unreleased extended tracks) collected together from seven different sources... a 'catch all' of Peter Banks tracks that fans may not have heard before.  The second disc includes the astonishing guitar led instrumental re-record of Yes' 'Astral Traveller.'   The booklet features an original poem by Bill Ward of Black Sabbath, included with kind permission.  The set also features new artwork and the audio has received a 2018 remaster.

Nirvana/Black Flower [Remastered & Expanded] ....import CD $20.99

Nirvana/Black Flower [Remastered & Expanded] ....import CD $20.99

Esoteric Recordings are pleased to announce the release of a new re-mastered and expanded edition of the legendary album Black Flower, recorded by the UK band Nirvana in 1969. Black Flower was the final album under the Nirvana name to feature the duo of Patrick Campbell Lyons and Alex Spyropoulos, who had recorded two classic albums for Island Records in 1967 and 1968 (The Story of Simon Simopath and All of Us). Black Flower was begun with the intention of being Nirvana's third album release for Island, but Island founder Chris Blackwell declined to release the project, returning the master tapes and rights to Campbell Lyons and Spyropoulos. Black Flower eventually appeared at the end of 1969 on the American label Metromedia Records under the erroneous title Dedicated to Markos III, actually a dedication on the album artwork and not the album's intended title. The record was withdrawn soon after release with the collapse of the label. The album was issued by Pye International in the UK, but was also withdrawn from release after a very limited pressing run. Original vinyl copies of the album now attain vast sums at auction, making this Esoteric Recordings edition most welcome. Now released under the title originally intended, this edition of Black Flower has been newly re-mastered from the original master tapes and includes five bonus tracks (three of which are previously unreleased). The wonderfully illustrated booklet features an essay by Malcolm Dome and an exclusive interview with Patrick Campbell Lyons.

Stray/Live at the Marquee [Expanded & Remastered] ....import CD $20.99

Esoteric Recordings are pleased to announce the release of a new re-mastered and expanded edition of the 1984 album "Live at the Marquee," by the legendary British rock band Stray. The album was the first record release by Stray since their 1977 album "Hearts of Fire," following which the band went on a hiatus. The line-up of Del Bromham (lead guitar), Pete Dyer (vocals), Gary Giles (bass) & Ritchie Cole (drums) reunited in 1983 to play a triumphant concert at The Marquee Club in London, featuring many Stray classics such as 'All in Your Mind,' 'Suicide,' 'One Night in Texas' and 'Houdini,' all captured on this album released the following year. Unavailable on CD for over 15 years, this welcome Esoteric Recordings edition has been newly re-mastered from the original master tapes and includes the bonus track 'Feel Like I've Been Here Before,' recorded at the same concert, along with both sides of a rare solo single by Del Bromham, issued in 1979. 'Who Do You Love' and 'The Best Friend I Ever Had' appear on CD for the very first time. The booklet restores the original album artwork and features an essay by Malcolm Dome and an exclusive interview with Del Bromham.

Humble Pie/Official Bootleg Box Set Vol 2 ....import 5 CD Box Set $31.99

Humble Pie/Official Bootleg Box Set Vol 2 ....import 5 CD Box Set $31.99

From Esoteric distributor Cherry Red - Hot on the heels of last year's Humble Pie's Official Bootleg Box Set Volume 1 comes the Official Bootleg Box Set Volume 2, collating rare and previously (officially) unreleased live shows that were illicitly recorded between 1971 and 1981. Originally emerging from the remnants of The Small Faces, Humble Pie formed in 1969 when guitarist and vocalist Steve Marriott joined forces with Peter Frampton, drummer Jerry Shirley and bassist Greg Ridley, and began their ascent to conquering the theatres and then arenas of North America, culminating in 1972's double live Performance: Rockin' The Filmore. Frampton left in 1971 for a highly successful solo career, replaced by Colosseum's Clem Clempson, and it was this line-up that was captured in New York in 1971 at one of Clem's first shows with the Pie. The extemporisations of Performance: Rockin' The Filmore became the basis for much of Humble Pie's live repertoire for the remainder of the '70s, but this 1971 New York show does include their unique take of Eddie Cochran's 'C'mon Everybody' and 'I Wonder' from the soon to be released Smokin' LP. Their March 1972 set from Boston also includes 'The Fixer' and '(I'm A) Road Runner' (also from their Smokin' opus, as well as 'Four Day Creep,' and Ray Charles' classics 'Hallelujah (I Love Her So)' and 'I Don't Need No Doctor' from their Fillmore set. Humble Pie would split in 1975 following their Street Rats record, but not before their Philadelphia show on March 15, 1975, captured on Disc 3. Disc 3 is completed by three tracks featuring the Blackberries, including 'Oh La-De-Da' from Thunderbox. The Pie would reform for 1980's On To Victory comeback, this time with a line-up featuring Bobby Tench from the Jeff Beck Group on guitar and vocals and bassist Anthony "Sooty" Jones. Disc 4 from Privates Club, N. Y. C. , March 25, 1981 features 'Infatuation' and 'Fool For A Pretty Face' from the latest On To Victory, plus their take on Elvis's classic 'All Shook Up' and their reworking of Small Faces' classic 'Tin Soldier' from their soon to be released Go For The Throat. Recorded a month later, their show from the Country Club, Reseda, Los Angeles on May 17, 1981, completes this collection on Disc 5 with a mixture of Pie classics as well as new numbers from On To Victory and Go For The Throat. As well as plenty of rare memorabilia, the booklet features an essay from Malcolm Dome based on new interviews with Pie drummer, Jerry Shirley, as well as first-hand accounts from Humble Pie associate, Iain McGonigal. Whilst every effort has been made to produce the best possible audio, limitations in the material drawn from various, non-standard, and un-offical sources means that the quality may not be up to the standard usually expected. All tracks have been included for their historical importance, and to present an anthology of Humble Pie live on stage from 1971-1981. The Official Bootleg Box Set Volume 2 is a raw testament to what this band did best; playing bluesy, gutsy, soulful hard rock, live on stage. Drawn from a variety of mainly audience recordings that have previously only been available as "under the counter" pirate releases, this is an honest, often unforgiving, tribute to a classic and much missed '70s super-group.

Humble Pie/Back on Track + Live in Cleveland [Expanded Edition] ....import double CD $21.99

Humble Pie/Back on Track + Live in Cleveland [Expanded Edition] ....import double CD $21.99

From Esoteric distributor Cherry Red - The late 1960s was the era of the "super-group," and with the dissolution of the Small Faces and the Herd, Steve Marriott and Peter Frampton joined forces in 1969 to record for Andrew Loog Oldham's Immediate label, joined by drummer Jerry Shirley and bassist Greg Ridley. Frampton moved on to huge solo acclaim following the obligatory double live LP, Performance: Rockin' The Fillmore, an album that would become Humble Pie's template on stage for the next decade. Joined by former Pie alumnus, Greg Ridley on bass and Bobby Tench from the Jeff Beck Group on guitar and vocals, drummer Jerry Shirley enlisted Bad Company guitarist Dave "Bucket" Colwell in 2001 for a new line-up and record from Humble Pie. Their 11th studio album, Back On Track, has much to offer fans of classic Humble Pie as much as fans of classic, blues-based hard rock. Produced with Andy Jackson, famed for his work with Pink Floyd, the album also features guest appearances from Zoot Money on Hammond organ. The album was recorded at Jacobs Studios near Farnham in Surrey, as well as David Gilmour's famed houseboat Astoria Studios, between December 2001 and January 2002, and released the following month. 16 years on, Back On Track remains a worthy addition to the Humble Pie catalogue. Going back a further 12 years, Jerry Shirley and Humble Pie were touring with a line-up featuring Charlie Huhn, Wally Stocker and Sean Beavan, with a set heavily peppered with Performance: Rockin' The Fillmore classics including 'Four Day Creep,' 'Stone Cold Fever,' 'I Don't Need No Doctor' and 'Hallelujah (I Love Her So),' as well as a cover of The Babys' 'Head First' and 'Fool For A Pretty Face' from the Pie's On To Victory. Captured at the legendary Agora in Cleveland, Ohio on January 12, 1990, this mid-west venue is evidently a stronghold of Humble Pie fans, if the audience reaction is anything to go by. With plenty of rare pictures, and a new essay with Malcolm Dome based on interviews with Jerry Shirley, HNE are pleased to add this set by a legendary band to their extensive catalogue.

Roger Glover & Friends/The Butterfly Ball & The Grasshopper's Feast [Remastered] ....import triple CD Box Set $35.99

From Esoteric distributor Cherry Red - Deep Purple were originally signed in 1968 to Parlophone Records in the UK, before switching to EMI's progressive imprint, Harvest, the following year. In 1971, the band's management set up Purple Records, to release Deep Purple's records from Machine Head onwards, but also the various side projects the band members were developing, and artists that they were discovering and respected. The label would eventually become home to debut solo releases from Jon Lord, David Coverdale and Glenn Hughes, as well as early releases from Michael Des Barres' Silverhead and Ronnie James Dio's Elf. Following expanded reissues from the resurrected Purple Records by Deep Purple's Jon Lord, Glenn Hughes, Silverhead, Elf and Hard Stuff, Cherry Red are proud to announce the new 3 disc edition of The Butterfly Ball And The Grasshopper's Feast. After leaving Purple in 1973, Roger Glover was asked to compose music to the illustrated book of the same name by William Plomer and Alan Aldridge. His first major project since leaving Purple, Roger was able to enlist many top names to help him realise his vision, including Glenn Hughes and David Coverdale, then both in Deep Purple as well as Elf's Micky Lee Soule and Ronnie James Dio. Not included on the original vinyl LP, the single 'Little Chalk Blue' featuring future Uriah Heep singer John Lawton is also featured on CD 1. As well as the remastered album, a second disc features nine demos and alternative mixes, plus the very rare Butterfly Ball Radio Special, a 1974 promo only release where the album's creator and producer, Roger Glover, discusses and explains the story behind the creation of the project. The third disc is a replica of the 'Love Is All' EP, a huge hit single across Europe on it's 1974 release, featuring Ronnie James Dio on lead vocals. Presented in a clamshell box set with booklet, individual wallets and poster, with sleeve-notes from Malcolm Dome, who has written a new essay based on interviews with Roger, plus text reproduced from the original 1974 press release.

Chris Squire/Fish Out of Water [Deluxe Limited Edition] ....import 2CD + 2DVD + LP + 2 7" Singles Box Set $95.99

An expanded double CD edition of Yes founder Chris Squire's extraordinary 1975 solo album Fish Out of Water, featuring a 2018 stereo mix by Jakko Jakszyk, a 2018 remaster of the original mix, and bonus tracks.  Recorded in the late spring and summer of 1975 while Yes was on hiatus, Fish Out of Water was a breathtaking work, equal to any Yes album in terms of sheer invention and creativity. The album was essentially a collaboration between Chris Squire and his friend Andrew Pryce Jackman, a gifted arranger who had been a member of The Syn, Squire's pre-Yes group.  The sessions saw typically brilliant contributions from former Yes drummer Bill Bruford, Yes keyboard player Patrick Moraz and Mel Collins (King Crimson) and Jimmy Hastings (Caravan).   Released in November 1975, Fish Out of Water was a Top 30 chart hit in the UK and made the US Billboard Top 75 album chart, going on to sell around 500,000 copies worldwide.  The four bonus tracks include the single edits of Lucky Seven and Silently Falling, and both sides of the 1981 single by Chris Squire and Alan White Run with the Fox and Return of the Fox (both tracks appearing on CD for the first time).  The double CD set also contains an illustrated booklet with an essay by Sid Smith featuring exclusive interviews with Bill Bruford, Patrick Moraz, Gregg Jackman and Jakko Jakszyk

The highlight of the limited edition deluxe boxed set is a stunning new 5.1 Surround Sound mix (exclusive to this set on an NTSC / Region Free DVD), along with a new stereo mix, from the original multi-track master tapes by Jakko Jakszyk and a new re-master of the original 1975 mix by Paschal Byrne. Fish Out of Water also includes four bonus tracks of the single edits of 'Lucky Seven' and 'Silently Falling,' along with both sides of the 1981 single by Chris Squire and Alan White, 'Run With the Fox' and Return of the Fox (appearing on CD for the first time).  The boxed set also includes a replica 180 gram gatefold LP with poster of Fish Out of Water (mastered and cut from the original tapes at Abbey Road studios), along with two seven inch singles of 'Lucky Seven' b/w 'Silently Falling' and 'Run With the Fox' b/w 'Return of the Fox,' both in picture sleeves. To complete the content is a visual DVD (NTSC / Region Free) featuring the 1975 Fish Out of Water promotional film featuring the songs Hold Out Your Hand and 'You By My Side,' along with a 2006 interview with Chris Squire conducted by Jon Kirkman and a 2006 audio commentary by Chris Squire. Finally, the set also contains a 36-page book with an essay by Sid Smith featuring exclusive interviews with Bill Bruford, Patrick Moraz, Gregg Jackman and Jakko Jakszyk.  Always justly proud of his first solo album, it was Chris Squire's long held wish that a 5.1 surround mix would be undertaken of the work someday. This Esoteric Recordings edition finally brings this to fruition and is a fitting tribute to the artistry of Chris and his collaborator, Andrew Pryce Jackman.

Disc seven features the entire sixty-five minute recording session of a performance for the German Musikladen series in October 1973, most of which was never shown on television. Disc eight features more BBC TV performances, including a rendition of Pandora's Box from Top of the Pops in September 1975 and the band's set for the Sight and Sound In Concert series in March 1977.   This lavish re-mastered set also features a 68-page hard backed book with an essay by Patrick Humphries and a lengthy in depth commentary on the performances featured by respected Procol Harum authority Roland Clare. The book also includes many previously unseen photographs and memorabilia from Gary Brooker's private collection. Still There'll Be More also includes a 60cm x 40 cm reproduction poster from a Procol Harum concert (featuring support from Vivian Stanshall) in 1976.  Still There'll Be More is the most elaborate celebration of Procol Harum's music released to date and this deluxe boxed set is a fine tribute to 50 years of one of Britain's greatest bands.

Esoteric Recordings is proud to announce the release of a new expanded and re-mastered 2 CD edition of Curved Air's classic 1970 album "Air Conditioning." Originally issued on the Warner Bros. Label in November 1970, "Air Conditioning" showcased the highly innovative talents of Sonja Kristina (vocals), ex-Royal College of Music student Darryl Way (violin), former Royal Academy of Music student Francis Monkman (electric guitar, piano, mellotron, VCS3 synthesiser), Rob Martin (bass) and Florian Pilkington-Miksa (drums). Taking their name from the album "A Rainbow in Curved Air" by American composer Terry Riley, Curved Air's debut album perfectly demonstrated the band's innovative musical approach, blending classical, electronic and folk music influences in their work and featuring Sonja Kristina's sublime vocals. Featuring such classic tracks as 'It Happened Today,' 'Propositions,' 'Vivaldi' and 'Situations.'  "Air Conditioning" was a Top Ten hit in the UK and firmly established Curved Air as one of Britain's foremost progressive bands.

Spirit/It Shall Be: Ode & Epic Recordings 1968-1972 ....import 5 CD Box Set $57.99

Esoteric Recordings are pleased to announce the release of a new five CD remastered clamshell box set by the legendary American band Spirit. Formed in Los Angeles in 1967 from the remnants of The Red Roosters, Spirit was one of the great bands to emerge on the US West Coast in the psychedelic era. Featuring the talents of 16 year old guitarist Randy California (who had played guitar with Jimi Hendrix in New York the previous year), his step-father drummer Ed Cassidy along with Jay Ferguson (vocals, percussion), John Locke (keyboards) and Mark Andes (bass), Spirit signed to producer Lou Adler's newly established Ode Records label in late 1967. Their self-titled debut album appeared some months later and demonstrated the breadth and diversity of the band covering psychedelic, rock and jazz influences and featuring such legendary cuts as Fresh Garbage, Uncle Jack, Topanga Windows, Mechanical World, Elijah and Taurus. The band's follow-up album, The Family that Plays Together, spawned the hit single I've Got a Line on You and was one of their finest works thanks to material such as It Shall Be, Aren't You Glad, Silky Sam and Darlin' If. Leading up to the recording of 1969's Clear album Spirit recorded the soundtrack to Jaques Demy's film The Model Shop. In 1970 Spirit recorded the classic The Twelve Dreams of Doctor Sardonicus for Epic Records, from which the single Animal Zoo was taken and included excellent material such as Nature's Way, Mr Skin, Space Child, Morning Will Come and Soldier. Sadly the original line - up of Spirit fell apart some months later leaving just Ed Cassidy and John Locke to assemble a new incarnation of Spirit for 1972's Feedback, which saw brothers Al and John Staehely join the band on bass and drums respectively. Spirit went on hiatus soon after, although California and Cassidy would continue to tour and record as Spirit on and off until California's untimely death in 1997.

Tim Blake/Noggi Tar ....import CD $19.99

Esoteric Recordings are pleased to announce the first ever CD release of "Noggi Tar," Tim Blake's 2012 album, previously only available as a download from his official website. Tim first came to prominence as a member of Gong, where his synthesiser experimentation and mastery was demonstrated on albums such as "Flying Teapot," "Angel's Egg" and "You." He would also join Hawkwind from 1979 - 1980 and from November 2007. After departing Gong in 1975 he teamed up with French lighting designer Patrice Warrener to form Crystal Machine, pioneering the use of lasers and synthesisers in a live setting. Blake's debut solo album, "Crystal Machine," was originally released in 1977 on the French experimental label Egg. Tim followed this with "Blake's New Jerusalem" in 1978. Unlike his previous work, the album featured songs and the lengthy title-track would dominate the album's second side. Tim Blake became a member of Hawkwind in 1979 and remained with the group for just over a year before returning to France and moving away from music. He returned to the music scene with the album "Magick" in 1991 and would even rejoin Hawkwind in the new millennium. In 2012 Tim recorded the album "Noggi Tar," an album which he described as "A digital theses on virtual lead guitar." The album was only made available for a short time via Tim's website but has now been newly re-mastered for CD release for the first time and features a booklet with a new essay and interview with Tim.

Neil Young/Roxy - Tonight's the Night Live ....CD $17.99

One of the most sought-after recordings from his vast archives, Roxy - Tonight's The Night Live. This was the first public performance of many of the songs that would make up Young's seminal album Tonight's the Night, which would not be released until June 1975. The album's final track "Walk On" would not appear until the release of On the Beach, in July 1974.  Young would be the first artist to christen the stage at what would become one of the world's great clubs, The Roxy Theater on the riotous Sunset Strip, right next door to the already infamous Rainbow Bar & Grille. The shows took place on September 20-22, 1973.  Produced by Young and the late David Briggs, these resultant recordings were mixed by John Nowland with updated post-production and mastering by John Hanlon - along with Chris Bellman - at Bernie Grundman Mastering using the original analog master tape source. Close your eyes and you'll be right there in that dark, smoky, 500 capacity room in West, L.A. on a hot summer night in 1973.  Tonight's the Night would go on to be named one of Rolling Stone's 500 Greatest Albums of All Time, and universally praised for its dark honesty and unapologetic raw delivery. The very same can be said for Roxy - Tonight's The Night Live.

rockbott.jpg (12826 bytes)

Mascot Label Group announces the arrival of the latest from certified LA guitar legend Michael Landau, Rock Bottom and it's a mind blowing trip. Rock Bottom sounds like it left the Morrison Hotel in 1970, got lost in Laurel Canyon, and finally found its way out onto Ventura Boulevard in 2017. It suggests Joni Mitchell's heady brew of imagery laden words and mystical melodies as easily as it evokes Hendrix, Arthur Lee and Love's Forever Changes, and Buffalo Springfield. It is, however, above all, an album with a singular voice of its own. Have you ever been experienced? Well, this album will get you where you're going.

Steve Reich/Pulse + Quartet ....CD $16.99

Steve Reich/Pulse + Quartet ....CD $16.99

2018 release. Pulse is performed by the International Contemporary Ensemble - an artist collective committed to transforming the way music is created and experienced-and Quartet (2013) is played by the Colin Currie Group, an ensemble led by percussionist Colin Currie that specializes in the music of Steve Reich; these are also the ensembles that gave the world premiere performances of the respective works. Reich says, "Pulse, for winds, strings, piano and electric bass, was completed in 2015 and was, in part, a reaction to Quartet, in which I changed keys more frequently than in any previous work. In Pulse I felt the need to stay put harmonically and spin out smoother wind and string melodic lines in canon over a constant pulse in the electric bass and or piano. From time to time this constant pulse is accented differently through changing hand alternation patterns on the piano. All in all, a calmer more contemplative piece." He continues, "Quartet, when mentioned in the context of concert music, is generally assumed to mean string quartet. In Quartet, there is just this group alone: two vibes and two pianos."

David Byrne/American Utopia ....CD $16.99

David Byrne/American Utopia ....CD $16.99

American Utopia fits hand-in-hand with Byrne's vision for his series "Reasons to be Cheerful," named for the song by the late Ian Dury. Over the last year, Byrne has been collecting stories, news, ideas, and other items that all either embody or identify examples of things that inspire optimism, such as a tech breakthrough, a musical act, a new idea in urban planning or transportation-something seen, heard, or tasted. Just as the album questions the current state of society while offering solace through song, the content of the series recognizes the darkness and complexity of today while showcasing alternatives to the despair that threatens us.  While David Byrne has collaborated on joint releases with Eno, Norman Cook (aka Fatboy Slim), and most recently St. Vincent over the past decade, American Utopia is Byrne's first solo album since, 2004's Grown Backwards, also on Nonesuch. American Utopia morphed during the writing and recording process, beginning with longtime collaborator Eno, and eventually growing to include collaboration with producer Rodaidh McDonald (The xx, King Krule, Sampha, Savages) alongside a diverse cast of creative contributors including Daniel Lopatin (aka Oneohtrix Point Never), Jam City, Thomas Bartlett (St. Vincent producer, aka Doveman), Jack Penate, and others.

Chris Hillman/The Asylum Years ....CD $16.99

Chris Hillman/The Asylum Years ....CD $16.99

Chris Hillman co-founded some of the most classic, seminal, groundbreaking acts of the '60s and '70s including The Byrds, The Flying Burrito Brothers, Manassas, and The Souther-Hillman-Furay Band. But, in the mid 1970s, Hillman decided it was time to try things on his own. 1976 brought Slippin' Away, the musical journeyman's first solo release. Produced by renowned engineers Ron and Howard Albert (Derek And The Dominoes, Allman Bros., Jimi Hendrix), it was a star-studded affair, featuring members of Booker T. & The M.G.'s, Poco, Buffalo Springfield, The Turtles, and ace studio musicians. Hillman took his place as front-man, and the results were the epitome of the classic '70s LA sound. He returned the following year with Clear Sailin,' which saw him dial back the flashy supporting cast for a more traditional release - much like the iconic music he had created in his early years with The Byrds and Burritos. For Clear Sailin' Hillman assembled a core band (including soon-to-be-superstar Richard Marx) with production helmed by Jim Mascon (Poco, Firefall). A number of songs feature co-writes with Crawdaddy magazine's founder, Peter Knobler. Hot on the heels of his 2017 critically acclaimed album (produced by Tom Petty), The Asylum Years presents both of those '70s albums on one compact disc, with an essay from Scott Schinder, featuring a new interview with Hillman. Having been a catalyst and innovator on the musical landscape for decades, The Asylum Years sees this byrd take flight.

David Bowie/Low [2017 Remaster] ....CD $15.99

David Bowie's Low (2017 Remastered Version) CD - Low is the eleventh studio album by English musician David Bowie, released on RCA Records on 14 January 1977. Recorded following Bowie's move to West Berlin after a period of drug addiction and personal instability, Low became the first of three collaborations with musician Brian Eno and producer Tony Visconti, later termed the "Berlin Trilogy." The album was in fact recorded largely in France, and marked a shift in Bowie's musical style toward an electronic and avant-garde approach that would be further explored on subsequent albums "Heroes" (1977) and Lodger (1979).

David Bowie/Stage [Live (2017)] ....double CD $18.99

David Bowie - Stage (2017)(Live)(2CD). Stage is David Bowie's second live album, recorded on the Isolar II world tour, and released by RCA Records in 1978. Though it was rumoured at the time that this would be his final outing with the label, following dissatisfaction over the promotion of Low and "Heroes," Bowie would in fact remain with RCA until 1982. The recording was culled from concerts in Philadelphia, Providence and Boston, US, in late April and early May 1978. It primarily included material from Bowie's most recent studio albums to that date, Station to Station, Low and "Heroes," but, in a surprise show of nostalgia, also featured five songs from The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders from Mars.

Scary Monsters (And Super Creeps) (2017 Remastered Version) - Scary Monsters (and Super Creeps), also known simply as Scary Monsters, is the fourteenth studio album by David Bowie, released on 12 September 1980 by RCA Records. It was his final studio album on the label and his first following his Berlin Trilogy of Low, "Heroes" and Lodger (1977-1979). Though considered very significant in artistic terms, the trilogy had proven less successful commercially. With Scary Monsters, Bowie achieved what biographer David Buckley called "the perfect balance" of creativity and mainstream success as well as earning critical acclaim; the album peaked at No. 1 in the UK and restored Bowie's commercial standing in the US.

Joshua Trinidad/In November ....CD $15.99

Joshua Trinidad/In November ....CD $15.99

Denver-based trumpeter-composer Joshua Trinidad makes a strikingly original statement on his RareNoise debut, In November. Recorded in Giske, Norway, this highly evocative trio outing features the adventurous Norwegian guitarist-composer and ECM recording artist Jacob Young and drummer Stale Liavik Solberg, a central figure on Oslo's improvising music scene. Brimming with deep and winding lyricism, Trinidad's elegiac seventh album as a leader is a compelling mix of bold long tones on trumpet, atmospheric guitaristry, fluid melodic invention and daring group improv, all delivered with rare authority by the three intrepid improvisers. From the minor key rubato opener "Beside" to the melancholy soundscape "Bell (Hymn)" to a darkly entrancing "The Attic" and the stirring title track, Trinidad and his empathetic crew of deep listeners show respect toward space and silence on these spellbinding noirish numbers.

Dave Liebman with Adam Rudolph and Tatsuya Nakatani/The Unknowable ....CD $15.99

Dave Liebman with Adam Rudolph and Tatsuya Nakatani/The Unknowable ....CD $15.99

The Unknowable is a completely improvised, spontaneous group-composed body of music created by legendary saxophone and flute player Dave Liebman together with celebrated percussionists Adam Rudolph and Tatsuya Nakatani. Dave Liebman, whose legendary, more than fifty year-long, career has seen him work with Miles Davis, Elvin Jones, John Scofield, Chick Corea, Dave Holland, Bob Moses and Richie Beirach, collaborates here with Adam Rudolph, himself one of the deepest percussionists of the last half century, whose collaborations encompass Don Cherry, Pharaoh Sanders, Bill Laswell, Herbie Hancock, Omar Sosa and several members of the AACM, and with Japan-born percussionist and sound innovator Tatsuya Nakatani. The result of this extraordinary meeting of the minds is music that stems from the worlds of free and spiritual jazz, yet goes beyond. It is incredibly open, has no north, south, east and west, it is simultaneously music of all humanity and of the cosmos.

Roswell Rudd/Embrace ....CD $15.99

For his follow-up to 2016's purely improvised studio recording Strength & Power (a cooperative quartet album featuring pianist Jamie Saft, bassist Trevor Dunn and drummer Balazs Pandi), the ever-adventurous trombonist-composer Roswell Rudd made a decided shift in direction on his first RareNoise Records release as a leader by embracing jazz standards he has loved and played throughout his long and illustrious career. Accompanied by the brilliant pianist Lafayette Harris, upright bass virtuoso Ken Filiano and soulful vocal sensation Fay Victor, the 81-year-old jazz master delivers with rare potency and poignancy on the aptly-titled Embrace. This intimate, drum-less quartet session is brimming with conversational playing between all the participants, with Rudd and Victor partaking in some particularly interactive exchanges on jazz classics like Billy Strayhorn's "Something to Live For," Charles Mingus' "Goodbye Pork Pie Hat," Thelonious Monk's beautiful ballad "Pannonica," the standard "Can't We Be Friends" and the traditional "House of the Rising Sun."

Eraldo Bernocchi/Rosebud ....CD $15.99

Experimental Italian guitarist, electro-producer and sound designer Eraldo Bernocchi joins forces with percussionist FM Einheit (a founder of the influential German industrial group Einsturzende Neubauten) and London-based cellist Jo Quail on Rosebud, a compelling mix of tranquil ambient sounds and pummeling industrial onslaughts. From the opening "Bloom," an 11-minute suite that travels from evocative ambiance to caustic crescendo, to the closing theme "The Inquirer," which emerges gradually over a haunting drone and builds to a hellacious distortion-laced guitar climax, Rosebud carries a dark, foreboding undercurrent while showcasing the trio's uncanny group-think in the throes of organized chaos.

Jamie Saft/Solo a Genova ....CD $15.99

Jamie Saft/Solo a Genova ....CD $15.99

Over the decades, Jamie Saft has recorded or performed with (among many others) The Beastie Boys, Bad Brains, B-52's and Iggy Pop. His discography spans over 160 recordings as a leader or sideman.  This is his first solo piano album.  Solo a Genova contains Jamie's interpretations of some of tunes from some of his favorite musicians: Z.Z. Top, Bob Dylan, Joni Mitchell, John Coltrane, Miles Davis, Curtis Mayfield, Stevie Wonder, Jimmy Jam & Terry Lewis & Charles Ives.  Jamie Saft's first solo album is an unrestrained experience, taking an eclectic mix of material – jazz, rock, pop, blues, modernist classical, and a few Saft originals – and creating an hour's coherent listening without sacrificing any of the variety. In other words, some choices might seem odd on paper but aurally, it works, and then some.  The reasoning behind the choices goes back to the original idea for a solo concert in 2007 in Italy. Saft wanted, "...to present American music as an example of positive, forward thinking art ...art that resisted hatred and negativity, art that promoted a positive path forward..."

David Fiuczynski & Phillip Gerschlauer/MikroJazz ....CD $15.99

2017 release. On MikroJazz, their cutting edge joint project for RareNoise Records, German saxophonist Philipp Gerschlauer and guitarist David Fiuczynski explore the world of music that falls between the cracks of the tempered scale. Joined by jazz drumming legend Jack DeJohnette, fretless electric bassist Matt Garrison and microtonal keyboardist Giorgi Mikadze, this daring crew creates dreamy, otherworldly soundscapes on tunes by Gerschlauer like aptly-titled "Hangover (Schlechter Kater)" and "LaMonte's Gamelan Jam" along with a swinging microtonal tune "Mikro Steps" and other originals like Fiuczynski's "MiCroY Tyner," "Zirkus Macabre" and "Lullaby Nightmare." Fiuczynski, who heads up the Planet MicroJam Institute at the Berklee College of Music in Boston, previously released two microtonal recordings on RareNoise - 2012's Planet MicroJam, which opened a Pandora's Box on non-Western tuning, and 2016's Flam! Blam! Pan-Asian MicroJam!, which was jointly dedicated to 20th century classical composer Olivier Messiaen and innovative hip-hop record producer JDilla. Gerschlauer, who was inspired by French composer Gerard Grisey and Paul Desmond had been independently exploring the world of microtonal music in Berlin and New York before developing a method of dividing an octave (12 notes in equal temperament) into 128 notes on the alto saxophone.

Greg Lake/Live in Piacenza ....import CD $24.99

Recorded in sound demonstration quality this is the documentary of Greg Lake's last tour, recorded on November 28, 2012 in a sold out Teatro Municipale in Piacenza. It was a very special, magical evening, as Greg remembered in his outstanding autobiography, Lucky Man. The concert was a triumph and eventually on January 9, 2016 the trustees of Conservatorio Nicolini of Piacenza gave Greg Lake the first honorary degree ever given by the Conservatorio. This is a wonderful record, bringing the "Songs of a Lifetime" project to its highest point. Exclusively for this concert, Greg performed with some special guests: Le Orme's leader Aldo Tagliapietra, ex PFM and Acqua Fragile's great vocalist Bernardo Lanzetti and the young and talented Annie Barbazza, making the Piacenza show even more special and rare.

Frank Zappa/Summer '82: When Zappa Came to Sicily ....Blu-Ray $25.99

Frank Zappa/Summer '82: When Zappa Came to Sicily ....Blu-Ray $25.99

In an unexpected convergence of art and life, Summer '82: When Zappa Came to Sicily is a story of two families - Sicilian filmmaker Salvo Cuccia and the children of Sicilian American rock icon Frank Zappa - as they try to reconnect with fathers who died young. The tumultuous summer of 1982 is the playing field on which these parallel stories unfold and ultimately merge. The backdrop is the bloody mafia war that is raging in Sicily, Italy's triumphant win of the World Cup, and Zappa's World Tour, which climaxes with the first ever rock concert in Palermo. Told through the lens of the Italian portion of the tour in a style as eclectic as Zappa's music, the film features rare performance footage and interviews with Dweezil, Moon, Diva and Gail Zappa and Massimo Bassoli, Frank's friend and biographer, who was eyewitness to the events of that summer. The film crescendos in Palermo in an unexpected and emotional homecoming in which all of the seekers reach back though time to connect to something lost: parents, ancestry, homeland, and ultimately a more complete sense of identity.

Digitally remastered two CD edition of this live release from the French progressive band. Recorded on November 12th, 1971 at the Theatre 140, this CD is an outstanding document in that it represents the only live recording of Magma on CD at the time. With the musicians featuring on the album Magma 2, the band plays pieces taken from Kobaia and from 1001° Centigrades, the first two albums of the band. The most interesting thing about this recording though is that it also introduces two pieces that were not fully complete at the time: Sowiloi, where Teddy Lasry shows how talented a flute-player he is, and Mekanik Kommandoh, played in public for the first time.

Long Distance Calling/Boundless ....import CD $24.99

2018 release from German instrumental progressive rock powerhouse Long Distance Calling. Following the release of two albums that saw the band exploring the addition of vocals to their sound, the band have gone back to basics and created a purely instrumental record. The band comments: "This time around, the four of us locked ourselves in a room over a couple of months and pretty much got back to where we started as a band to catch this "go with the flow" feeling. This is probably the purest LDC album ever, no guests, no vocals, all instrumental. We´re stoked how it turned out and this album got a lot of energy, heaviness, melodies and twists, we hope you will enjoy it as much as we do."

Steve Hackett/Wuthering Nights: Live in Birmingham ....double CD + Blu-Ray $24.99

Wuthering Nights: Live in Birmingham, the new live release from guitar legend Steve Hackett. Wuthering Nights was filmed at the Birmingham Symphony Hall during Hackett's recent, critically-acclaimed Genesis Revisited & Classic Hackett tour.

To celebrate Steve and his band played five of the best-loved tracks from this iconic album: Eleventh Earl Of Mar, One For The Vine, Blood On The Rooftops, In That Quiet Earth and Afterglow. Other fan favourites from Hackett's Genesis days were 'revisited': Dance On A Volcano, Inside & Out, Firth Of Fifth, The Musical Box and the classic Los Endos. This mesmerising show marks the first ever live performance by Hackett & his band of the tracks One for the Vine and Inside & Out, and also includes many of Hackett's solo fan-favourites as well as material from his latest studio album The Night Siren. Steve recalls the Birmingham performance... "I'm excited about imminent release of 'Wuthering Nights'. It felt special to celebrate the 40th anniversary of Wind & Wuthering, the Genesis album I had the most songwriting involvement with and a favourite among many fans. Songs like One for the Vine, Eleventh Earl of Mar and Blood on the Rooftops come across powerfully on this release, which also features other Genesis and solo Hackett favourites along with songs from my latest album The Night Siren... Sit back and enjoy!" The band are: Roger King (keyboards), Gary O'Toole (drums/percussion), Rob Townsend (saxes/flutes), Nick Beggs (bass, stick & twelve string) and Nad Sylvan on vocals plus special guests John Hackett and Amanda Lehmann.

Kayak/Seventeen [Special Edition] ....import double CD $25.99

Kayak/Seventeen [Special Edition] ....import double CD $25.99

Formed back in 1972, Kayak is the most legendary Dutch progressive rock act and now presents its highly anticipated 17th studio album! "Seventeen" contains 60 minutes of epic & melodic rock that finds a perfect balance between diverse long tracks such as 'La Peregrina,' 'Cracks' or 'Walk through Fire' and straighter anthems like 'All that I Want,' 'Somebody' or the hard rocking 'Feathers and Tar!' A brilliant union of '70s classic rock, progressive arrangements and straight-forward, catchy rock with excellent musicianship and powerful vocals. Kayak achieved tremendous success from the late '70s onwards, cracking the US top 50 charts with the single 'Want You to Be Mine' in 1978, holding number #1 in the Dutch charts for several weeks with the Platin awarded “Phantom of the Night” album, which was released in 1979 and included the hit single 'Ruthless Queen.' Now, with singer Bart Schwertmann and guitarist Marcel Singor joining Ton Scherpenzeel as the band's creative core and additional members Kristoffer Gildenlow (bass / ex Pain of Salvation) and Collin Leijenaar (drums / Affector, Neal Morse, Dave Bainbridge), a reborn Kayak once again proves that the band's name - though chosen randomly back in 1972 - is as appropriate as ever. Just when everyone expects the boat to sink, it miraculously resurfaces and sails on. The Special Edition includes a bonus disc with 36 minutes of demo recordings created back in 2016.

On 11th September 2017, Virgil Howe unexpectedly passed away at the age of 41. "Virgil and I had only recently completed recording Nexus, which contains eleven of his tunes to which I added a guitar to suit each one. Nexus explores a completely different side of Virgil's ability, as a writer and keyboard player. His talents were multi-diverse and he always gave his best. We hope that the music just completed will stand as a fitting tribute to his life and legacy." - Steve Howe

After 19 years, the return of the Peter Blegvad Trio, in supernal form and now a quintet with Karen Mantler and Bob Drake. Recorded over 10 days at studio Midi-Pyrenees the old way: sitting in a room, working on arrangements, rehearsing a bit and then quickly recording to capture every nuance and interaction: your front seat in our hi-tech sitting room. The sound is the best so far and the playing is organically elastic, giving form to a glittering chain of lapidary songs crafted by a master of the form. You'll laugh, you'll cry, you'll change your life and join the circus. It's never too late.

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.

Zoot Money's Big Roll Band was one of the most popular and entertaining groups of the British R&B boom era.

Denver was always one of the Dead's favorite stops, and the pair of shows they played there on the hallowed Fall 1973 tour were a high time indeed. This three CD set - which has never before been released at retail - offers the complete November 21, 1973 show along with some choice excerpts from the night before, all beautifully recorded by Kidd Candelario and mastered by Jeffrey Norman in HDCD sound. Appropriately enough for the setting, the first set is laced with cowboy tunes like "Jack Straw," "Mexicali Blues," and "Big River" (a particularly good rendition), but the real revelation is the second set, which launches into an unprecedented and seamless 62 minute medley of "Mississippi Half-Step Uptown Toodeloo"/"Playing in the Band"/"El Paso"/"Playing in the Band"/"Wharf Rat"/"Playing in the Band" (three times!)/"Morning Dew." Wow! The November 20 material at the end of disc three is quite worthy as well, highlighted by an adventurous "The Other One." The 16-page full-color booklet features notes by Blair Jackson. A keeper!

Ron Wood & Ronnie Lane/Mahoney's Last Stand-O.S.T. ....CD $14.99

Ron Wood & Ronnie Lane/Mahoney's Last Stand-O.S.T. ....CD $14.99

What do two Faces do when their lead singer (bon vivant Rod Stewart) doesn't show up for the Ooh La La recording sessions? They work on a soundtrack for an obscure film by actor and friend Alexis Kanner (most famous for his guest roles on the late '60s TV series The Prisoner), and draft the uppermost rank of British rock royalty to play on it! Indeed, given the pedigree of the personnel on this project, it is rather stunning how obscure this 1976 album from Faces members Ron Wood and Ronnie Lane remains, having only been issued on CD abroad and for a brief time at that; one suspects it has much to do with the flop of the film (which appears to have only been screened at the Canadian Film Festival), and the fact that the original LP was released four years after it was recorded in 1972. Just listen to the roll call of session men on Mahoney's Last Stand, which was produced by Glyn Johns, himself a British rock and roll noble of good standing and fresh from producing Paul McCartney and Wings' Red Rose Speedway when he worked on this album: Pete Townshend (guitar and "special electronic effects"), Blind Faith and Family member Rick Grech, fellow Faces Ian McLagan and Kenney Jones, soon-to-be fellow (for Wood) Rolling Stones habitues Ian Stewart, Bobby Keys, and Jim Price, Micky Waller (Wood's fellow member in the Jeff Beck Group of the late '60s), and Grease Band member Bruce Rowland to name but a few. As for the music, much of it has a rustic, rural feel in keeping with the film's setting, which follows the misadventures of a recluse who rents a ramshackle farm in the Canadian countryside, with some nods ("Woody's Thing") towards the blues-rock Wood would explore with Keith Richards in the Stones. But without a doubt the highlight is Lane's "Just for a Moment,' which is here in both vocal and instrumental versions; it's a prime example of the wistful roots-rock that made Lane's post-Faces solo career so compelling. Richie Unterberger's liner notes examine this little-known detour in the careers of two British rock legends ... fascinating for Faces and Stones fans!

Denny Doherty/Of All the Things - The Complete ABC-Dunhill Masters ....CD $16.99

Almost to the day we released our The Mamas and The Papas: Complete Singles - 50th Anniversary Collection back in January 2016, fans of the group (and they are legion!) started asking us about reissuing Papa Denny Doherty's criminally overlooked 1971 solo album on the ABC/Dunhill label, Watcha Gonna Do.  This record came out on CD only in Japan back in 2002, and commands hundreds of dollars online, so a straight reissue would have worked just fine. But that's not how we do things at Real Gone Music ... and so we aren't stopping with the album. We're adding six bonus tracks, five of ‘em previously unreleased, to fashion a brand-new compilation, Of All the Things - The Complete ABC/Dunhill Masters! Arranged by Jimmie Haskell, produced by Bill Szymczyk, and featuring songs written by Denny with his first wife Linda Woodward with such session players as Barry McGuire, Buddy Emmons, Russ Kunkel, "Fast" Eddy Fischer, and Eric "The Doctor" Hord, Watcha Gonna Do is truly a lost gem of early '70s roots rock, sort of The Mamas and Papas meeting The Band and The Eagles (Szymczyk went on to produce all of The Eagles albums). The bonus tracks include the rare single of the non-LP track "To Claudia on Thursday" - with additional vocals supplied by Spanky McFarlane of Spanky & Our Gang - plus five other tracks unearthed from both album session tapes and follow-up recordings left in the vaults. Joe Marchese provides liner notes featuring quotes and reminiscences from Eddy Fischer, Denny's daughters, Bill Szymczyk, Michelle Phillips, and others.

Jansch, Bert - A Man I'd Rather Be Part 2 - 4PC CD $49.99
Limited four CD set in 24-page hardback book.

In this period, we see Jansch's take on pop (Nicola), blues (Birthday Blues funnily enough), handsome arrangements (Rosemary Lane) and baroque folk (Moonshine).

The song was forgotten until Dennis Dunaway, the bass player of the original Alice Cooper band, rediscovered it and played it to Alice, after which the two of them updated the song and then recorded it for the Paranormal album. With it's psychedelic sound, swirling guitars and the mysterious Hammond organ, it is one of the most hypnotic songs on Paranormal. This release features the title track plus four live tracks.

By the mid-1960s, his career was largely forgotten, but he met and made friends with drummer Joey Covington in 1967, and when Covington joined Jefferson Airplane, he brought Papa John Creach with him. Creach also joined the related band Hot Tuna, and played with them until the middle of the 1970s, when he joined Jefferson Starship. He stayed on good terms with them all, and played with various members of the Jefferson Starship family for the rest of his life, until dying in 1994 at the age of 76. The Cat and the Fiddle was Creach's 6th solo album, and was his first with DJM records.

Galahad - Seas of Change CD $16.99
We at Galahad Towers are very pleased and proud to announce the release of our new studio album 'Seas of Change', which consists of just one forty three minute track, creating, what we think is, a full on no holds barred prog/rock rollercoaster of an album.

'Seas of Change' is also the first album to feature Lee Abraham on all guitars following his re-joining of the band in the Spring of 2017.   'Seas of Change' is also Tim Ashton's first appearance on a Galahad album containing completely brand new material since he appeared on 'Nothing Is Written' back in 1990!  Musically, as well as the core band  'Seas of Change' features long term honorary member Sarah Bolter who makes an appearance on flute, clarinet and soprano sax.

Heldon - Allez-Teia (Heldon II) CD $17.99
Before making his own music in the early '70s, Richard Pinhas was a King Crimson fan. The British group has buzzed in Pinhas's mind for decades, but their greatest impact came early. When he first saw them play, Pinhas was struck by music played during intermission. "When I saw (King Crimson guitarist) Robert Fripp and Brian Eno perform in Paris later, I realized that the intermission music was their work," Pinhas said. "I didn't know that when I first heard it, but I was very impressed by it. It was the most important influence on Heldon." That influence is clear on Allez- Teia, originally released in 1975 on Pinhas's own Disjuncta label. "In The Wake Of King Fripp" is a soaring mix of string-like electronics and smeared guitar, a reference both to the guitarist and King Crimson's second album In The Wake Of Poseidon (1970). The meditative "Omar Diop Blondin," in which free tones float above a repetitive guitar figure, is dedicated to Fripp and Eno. A strong influence also comes from The Soft Machine's Robert Wyatt, who was slated to record some tracks with Pinhas for Allez-Teia until the expense of his travel from London to Paris proved prohibitive. Over four decades after he made Allez-Teia, Pinhas's admiration for King Crimson remains profound. He actually met Fripp in 1974, and the two still stay in touch. "We have a great friendship; he has been very helpful," says Pinhas. "Fripp has always been my Hendrix." Some artists might balk at admitting such strong influence over their own work, but for Pinhas it's all about respect. "In the academic world in France, you list your sources," says Pinhas, who received a PhD in philosophy before launching his music career. "So I thought it was good to say, 'Yes, we are influenced by this, and we are proud of it, and people have to know it.' The work of King Crimson at that time was very important. It's not a secret." 2018 remaster by Willem Makkee.

Heldon - Electronique Guerilla (Heldon I) CD $17.99
When Richard Pinhas submitted a few tracks to British label E.G. (home of King Crimson and Roxy Music), the imprint was interested, but Pinhas was frustrated to find out he'd have to wait a year for them to release anything. So Pinhas put out his first album on his own label, Disjuncta. He called the project Heldon (from a location in Norman Spinrad's 1972 sci-fi novel The Iron Dream).  Most of Electronique Guerilla was made by Pinhas alone, but "Ouais, Marchais, Mieux Qu'en 68" featured five collaborators, including one of his mentors, Gilles Deleuze. Over winding guitars and pointed percussion, the French philosopher reads lyrics taken from Friedrich Nietzsche's "The Voyager and His Shadow" (1880). Despite being self-released - with Pinhas himself delivering some stock directly to record stores - Electronique Guerilla quickly sold over 19, 000 copies. That convinced Pinhas he should make and release more music by himself - but he would have little time for philosophy. "I had to make a decision, because at that point in France, you couldn't do two jobs, " he remembers. "So I made this very bad choice to be a rock 'n' roll musician." It's a choice he's stuck to for four decades, and the fiery Electronique Guerilla provided a potent spark. 2018 remaster by Willem Makkee.

Hendrix, Jimi - Both Sides of the Sky CD $14.99
Both Sides of the Sky presents 13 studio recordings including 10 which have never before been released. All but two of these studio recordings were made during a fertile two year period between January 1968 and 1970.

Both Sides of the Sky completes a trilogy of albums [with Valleys of Neptune and People, Hell & Angels] intended to present the best and most significant unissued studio recordings remaining in the Hendrix archive. The songs include fascinating alternate versions of "Stepping Stone," "Lover Man" and "Hear My Train a Comin'" as well as recordings where Jimi is joined by such special guests as Johnny Winter and Stephen Stills. Both Sides of the Sky was mixed by Eddie Kramer, the engineer for all of Hendrix's albums throughout the guitarist's lifetime, and produced by Janie Hendrix, Kramer and John McDermott.

Closing Time is the debut record of Tom Waits and it foreshadows the distinctly lyrical storytelling and original blending of jazz, blues and folk styles that would come to be associated with the artist. Waits performs enduring classics of his career such as Ol' 55 (covered by the Eagles), the heartbreaking "Martha" and the gentle acoustic folk of "I Hope I Don't Fall In Love With You."

Wakemen, Rick - Piano Vibrations CD $16.99
This is a very peculiar, nay controversial, part of the Rick Wakeman canon. In 1971 Rick Wakeman was one of the hottest properties in rockmusic. Then, out of the blue came this record. Piano Vibrations, though promoted in it's re-release as the first studio album by English progressive rock keyboardist Rick Wakeman, is not considered a Wakeman album, even by himself. His contributions were limited to performing as a session musician and he did not compose any of the tracks. He says: "This was never meant to be a solo album and to be honest I certainly don't count it as a solo album in any respect. I was actually booked to play piano on a session at Pye Studios in London's Marble Arch and it was to play on some backtracks for an unknown singer who was due in later that week to put his vocals on. Shortly afterwards I started having some success with Strawbs and the next thing we knew was that the album was being put out by PYE Records as "Piano Vibrations" with no vocalist and with a picture of me on the back. I was unhappy and A&M Records, who had Strawbs and myself signed, were furious. I received £9 for my trouble."

Winter, Johnny - Live Bootleg Series, Vol. 14: It's Johnny's Birthday - Ltd Ed, Remastered, Original Master Recording CD $17.99

ZNR - Traite De Mecanique Populaire CD $16.99
The second and last release by this most exquisite and eccentric of groups, who hardly touched the world of working bands, and whose existence was tenuous, flickering, mythological – and yet who managed, stealthily, to find its way in time to legendary status – rather like Duchamp's fountain - by leaving an indelible trace in recorded form of their verifiable existence. There's been nothing like them before or since. Though, if Captain Beefheart had been Erik Satie...

Henry, Pierre - Polyphonies - Boxed Set, 12PC CD $89.99

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

Digitally remastered two-fer containing a pair of albums on one CD.

The production is enhanced by the presence of vocalist Nicolette Larson and her sidekick Charra Penny giving many of the tracks a strong female singing presence that works well with Commander Cody's own vocals. The set list marks something of a change in musical direction from the earlier influence of Western swing to a style more typical of a local bar band. Flying Dreams came the following year and is full of catchy tunes.

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

Digitally remastered and expanded two CD edition of Curved Air's classic 1970 album Air Conditioning. Originally issued on the Warner Bros. Label in November 1970, Air Conditioning showcased the highly innovative talents of Sonja Kristina (vocals), ex-Royal College of Music student Darryl Way (violin), former Royal Academy of Music student Francis Monkman (electric guitar, piano, mellotron, VCS3 synthesizer), Rob Martin (bass) and Florian Pilkington-Miksa (drums). Taking their name from the album A Rainbow in Curved Air by American composer Terry Riley, Curved Air's debut album perfectly demonstrated the band's innovative musical approach, blending classical, electronic and folk music influences in their work and featuring Sonja Kristina's sublime vocals. Featuring such classic tracks as 'It Happened Today', 'Propositions', 'Vivaldi' and 'Situations', Air Conditioning was a Top Ten hit in the UK and firmly established Curved Air as one of Britain's foremost progressive bands. This expanded Esoteric Recordings edition features the original album, remastered from the original master tapes, along with eleven bonus tracks which include the rare single version of 'It Happened Today' and the non-album track 'What Happens When You Blow Yourself Up.' Disc Two of the set features three previously unissued session out-takes of 'It Happened Today', 'Rob One' and the highly sought after 'Thinking on the Floor' and six tracks recorded in session for BBC Radio One between November 1970 and January 1971. This edition of Air Conditioning also includes an illustrated booklet with a new essay by Malcolm Dome featuring exclusive interviews with band members.

Curved Air - Air Cut: Official Edition - Remastered, UK - Import CD $19.99
Digitally remastered edition of Curved Air's classic album Air Cut. Originally released on the Warner Bros. Label in 1974, Air Cut featured a new line-up of Curved Air featuring Sonja Kristina (vocals, acoustic guitar), Mike Wedgwood (bass, vocals), Kirby Gregory (guitar), Eddie Jobson (keyboards, violin) and Jim Russell (drums). Although original members Darryl Way, Francis Monkman, and Florian Pilkington Miksa had departed, Sonja Kristina assembled a new group drawn from some immense talents, including those of eighteen year old Eddie Jobson. Perhaps one of Curved Air's most progressive albums, Air Cut featured some outstanding compositions such as 'The Purple Speed Queen' and the ten-minute epic 'Metamorphosis.'

Isildurs Bane - Off The Radar - Sweden - Import CD $31.99

Kayak - Seventeen - UK - Import, 2PC CD $25.99
2018 release, the seventeenth album from legendary Dutch progressive rock band Kayak. The band's mastermind Ton Scherpenzeel comments: "Kayak are excited about signing to InsideOutMusic, and are looking forward to a long lasting and successful collaboration. The combination of the band with an almost complete new line up, and a new record company seems very promising and will hopefully open new doors for us!" Kayak was founded in 1972 by keyboardist/composer Ton Scherpenzeel. Often compared to contemporaries like Yes and Focus, the band quickly developed their own style of symphonic rock that was rather concentrating on songs than elaborate solos and long instrumental passages while Kayak never shied away from including epic, longer tracks and captivating, dramatic arrangements. Throughout the years, Kayak has seen many line-up changes with Ton Scherpenzeel now being the only original member and leader of the band.

Leimer, K. - Imposed Order / Imposed Absence - Remastered, Expanded Version, 2PC CD $18.99
Digitally remastered and expanded two CD edition. The first phase of K. Leimer's recorded work began in 1972 with the production of the Grey Cows cassette and culminated in 1983 with the release of Imposed Order. Though work seemingly stopped following the release of I/O, Leimer continued to record and experiment with sound during what proved to be a 15-year interegnum for his Palace of Lights label. That work, never before issued, is included in this expanded remaster. Imposed Absence features ten tracks recorded in the years between Imposed Order and his return to releasing music with The Listening Room. Imposed Absence features the addition of Mellotron and early digital synths, some excursions into lo-fi and, unusual in his catalog, a few improvised tracks. Combined with the VOD double album of his earliest tape recordings and RVNG's A Period Of Review double album, the release of Imposed Order/Imposed Absence brings the entirety of Leimer's early work into view.

Long Distance Calling - Boundless - Special Edition, Germany - Import CD $24.99
2018 release from German instrumental progressive rock powerhouse Long Distance Calling. Following the release of two albums that saw the band exploring the addition of vocals to their sound, the band have gone back to basics and created a purely instrumental record. The band comments: "This time around, the four of us locked ourselves in a room over a couple of months and pretty much got back to where we started as a band to catch this "go with the flow" feeling. This is probably the purest LDC album ever, no guests, no vocals, all instrumental. We´re stoked how it turned out and this album got a lot of energy, heaviness, melodies and twists, we hope you will enjoy it as much as we do."

Magma - Concert 1971: Theatre 140 Bruxelles - UK - Import, 2PC CD $34.99
Digitally remastered two CD edition of this live release from the French prog rock band. Recorded on November 12th, 1971 at the Theatre 140, this CD is an outstanding document, in that it represents the only live recording of Magma on CD at the time. With the musicians featuring on the album Magma 2, the band plays pieces taken from Kobaia and from 1001° Centigrades, the first two albums of the band. The most interesting thing about this recording though is that it also introduces two pieces that were not fully complete at the time: Sowiloi, where Teddy Lasry shows how talented a flute-player he is, and Mekanik Kommandoh, played in public for the first time.

Mayall, John - Blues Express CD $10.99
The seven concerts from which these recordings are taken span just ten years (1972-82) in John Mayall's forty-years-plus-and-still-going-strong career. Musically, though, what you have here are brilliant performances which resonate with virtually all stages of his remarkable journey as a band leader, multi-instrumentalist, songwriter and blues crusader on both sides of the Atlantic. There's a 1982 Bluesbreakers' reunion featuring Mick Taylor and John McVie; and there are also jazz soloists from the lineup that produced what Melody Maker then regarded as John's finest album to date - 1972's Jazz-Blues Fusion. In effect, the music on this CD takes you anywhere from the Flamingo club to Fillmore East and West.

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

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

Residents - Ghost Of Hope CD $15.99

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

Satriani, Joe - What Happens Next CD $13.99
2018 release. What Happens Next is the sixteenth studio album by the acclaimed guitarist. Joe Satriani consciously went in a more simplistic direction than on his previous album, Shockwave Supernova. As opposed to an alien alter ego, this time he wrote songs "about a human being, two feet on the ground, heart pumping, with emotions, dreams, and hopes. That seemed to be the direction I really was yearning for." He referred to it as an 'internal artistic rebirth' and collaborated with Red Hot Chili Peppers drummer Chad Smith, Deep Purple bassist Glenn Hughes and producer Mike Fraser. It was recorded in Los Angeles and San Francisco, with Satriani abandoning progressive elements of his last two albums and utilizing a more straightforward, accessible sound he termed "pure rock and soul."

Umphrey's McGee - It's Not Us CD $15.99
It's Not Us is the most vibrant, mature expression of that growing studio prowess yet. The evolution of the songwriting is a reflection of life lived, of confidence gained.

The musical colors are pushed around with a fluidity that is both niche and accessible. From vulnerable, stripped down acoustic ("You & You Alone") to ferocious, blistering rock ("Dark Brush"), It's Not Us encapsulates a diversity that you rarely find in a single band. It's all over and it's all here. It's quintessential Umphrey's.

Wood, Ron & Ronnie Lane - Mahoney's Last Stand - Original Motion Picture CD $15.99

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

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