Esoteric Recordings are proud to announce the release of a newly re-mixed and expanded edition of the classic instrumental album by Genesis founder member Anthony Phillips, "Slow Dance." Released in 1990, the album is regarded by aficionados of Anthony's music as one of his finest and a two part orchestral rock suite which reflects him at his best and most imaginative.  This new three disc digipak deluxe edition of the album features a newly remastered original stereo mix and a 5.1 surround sound mix by Simon Heyworth (on an NSTC / Region Free DVD), along with a CD of previously unreleased 'Slow Dance' vignettes. It includes a lavishly illustrated booklet that fully restores the original album artwork and features a new essay by Jon Dann.

Wetton & Downes iCon/Urban Psalm - Live [Deluxe Edition] ....import double CD + DVD $21.99

From Esoteric distributor Cherry Red, iCon was the collaborative band of the late John Wetton and keyboardist Geoff Downes.  Wetton/Downes were the song-writing duo behind the Asia catalogue including the mega hit Heat of the Moment. Geoff Downes is a current member of Yes.  Urban Psalm has only been available as a DVD on the artists' merchandise store previously, so this is its first mainstream release, now with the audio as an accompanying additional two CDs.  This release is part of a prestigious re-issue campaign which will see all of the band's studio and live albums re-released as definitive editions.  This re-release is fully approved by Geoff Downes and the John Wetton Estate.

Colosseum/Those Who Are About to Die Salute You [Remastered & Expanded Edition] ....import CD $19.99

Colosseum/Those Who Are About to Die Salute You [Remastered & Expanded Edition] ....import CD $19.99

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

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

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

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

Rick Wakeman/The Art in Music Trilogy [Deluxe Remastered Edition] ....import triple CD set $31.99

Esoteric Recordings are pleased to announce the release of a newly re-mastered edition of Rick Wakeman's Art in Music Trilogy of albums.  Recorded in 1997 and originally released in 1999, the three disc set comprised three distinct volumes: "The Sculptor," "The Writer" and "Sketches." The music within the set was evocative and beautifully revealed a different side of Rick's musical nature.   The trilogy was prepared for a German record company that quickly ceased operations, making original copies hard to find. This welcome reissue is presented as a three disc digipack and has been newly remastered. The set includes a booklet with a new essay.

Pierre Moerlen Gong/Downwind ....import CD $21.99

A 2017 re-press of the Esoteric label 2010 re-master of Pierre Moerlen's Gong's 1979 album Downwind.  Inventively combining Fusion, Minimalism and Rock, the album featured contributions from the likes of Mike Oldfield, Steve Winwood, Didier Malherbe and Terry Oldfield on the stunning twelve and a half minute title track, plus Mick Taylor and violinist Didier Lockwood on other pieces.

Bill Nelson/Chance Encounters in the Garden of Lights [Remastered & Expanded Edition] ....import double CD $21.99

Bill Nelson/Chance Encounters in the Garden of Lights [Remastered & Expanded Edition] ....import double CD $21.99

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

Tim Blake/Caldea Music II [Remastered Edition] ....import CD $18.99

Esoteric Recordings are pleased to announce the release of a newly re- mastered edition of "Caldea Music II," the 2002 album by Tim Blake.  In 2002 Tim recorded and released "Caldea Music II," a work especially commissioned by the Caldea Spa centre in Andorra. The album saw Tim return to his purely instrumental roots, cited by some as a modern equivalent of his classic "Crystal Machine" album. Recorded once again at his Windmill studio, the album featured wonderfully evocative music and guest appearances by Christian Boule (Glissando Guitar) and Konan Mevel (Catalan Bagpipes, Flute).  Unavailable for many years (and highly sought after by collectors), "Caldea Music II" has been newly re-mastered and features a booklet with a new essay and fully restores the original album artwork.

Barclay James Harvest/Octoberon [Deluxe Remastered & Expanded Edition] ...import double CD + DVD $24.99

Esoteric Recordings are proud to announce the release of a newly re-mastered and expanded edition of the classic gold selling 1976 album by Barclay James Harvest, "Octoberon." Originally released at the end of October 1976, the album was a big selling release for the band achieving Silver disc status in the UK and Gold in Germany, their first breakthrough album in that territory.  The album struck a chord with the record buying public thanks to tracks such as 'The World Goes On,' 'Suicide?,' the epic 'Ra' and 'Rock n' Roll Star' and its popularity continues to endure.  This Deluxe edition includes two CDs and a DVD, and features a new re-master of the original album mix, along with stunning brand new stereo and 5.1 surround mix of the album. The set also includes new stereo and 5.1 Surround sound mixes. The DVD (which is region free and NTSC) also includes 96 kHz / 24-bit stereo re-mixes and a 96 kHz / 24-bit re-master of the original album mix and includes two rare promotional films of 'Rock and Roll Star' and 'The World Goes On,' as broadcast on the BBC TV show "The Old Grey Whistle Test." In addition the set features six bonus tracks, including the previously unreleased alternate introduction mix of 'May Day' and alternate mixes of 'Ra,' 'Suicide?' and more.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

'Sara Smile,' the Hall & Oates classic is given the Gale treatment on the "Ginseng Woman" album and creates his own reggae influenced jazz classic.  After leaving Columbia Eric signed with Warner Brothers and released the albums "Blue Horizon" and "Island Breeze" and tracks from those albums are featured on this package.  Also check out Lois Wilson's sleeve-notes, which gives you a great insight to the guitar legend that is Eric Gale.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

From warped pop, sonic tributes and mysterious recordings made among the Inuit to innovative interactive releases, film projects and installations spanning five decades, The Residents are unquestionably one of the most intriguing and notable acts in the history of recorded music.  Following their long tradition of projects based on narrative themes, The Residents are pleased to announce the release of The Ghost of Hope, a historically accurate new album based on great train wrecks of 19th Century USA.  After discovering a series of vintage news articles highlighting the dangers of train travel in the late 19th and early 20th centuries and inspired by the era's graceful language, the group contrast that eloquence against the sheer horror of these devastating events.   The album features guest collaborator Eric Drew Feldman - who has worked with everybody cool.  Utilizing various techniques, including music, sound effects and text from actual newspaper accounts from the era, The Ghost of Hope purports to recreate several of these horrific incidents.  Expect wide-ranging media support for this momentous release from one of the true avant- garde pioneers of contemporary music.

Ritchie Blackmore's Rainbow/Stranger in Us All [Expanded Edition] ....import CD $14.99

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

Mike Westbrook Concert Band/Marching Song: Vol 1 & Vol 2  + Bonus ....import triple CD $23.99

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

Andy Partridge/Powers ....CD $13.99

Andy Partridge/Powers ....CD $13.99

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

Steven Wilson/To the Bone ....CD Price TBA

A gloriously dynamic Modernist Pop record, To The Bone is Steven Wilson's fifth offical solo album and his first for Caroline International.  Fusing futurist rock and spectral electronics with elegant atmospheres and wild guitars, To the Bone references the hugely ambitious progressive pop records that inspired Wilson in his teens (Peter Gabriel's So, Talk Talk's Colour of Spring, Tears for Fears Seeds of Love etc).   Lyrically, the album's eleven tracks encompass the paranoid chaos of the post-truth era and the creeping self-loathing of the technology age, as well as steely fly-on-the-wall observations of the everyday lives of religious fundamentalists and a welcome shot or two of wide-eyed escapism.  To the Bone is a high definition snapshot of the disconcerting times we live in.

Musically, it's an aggressive up-tempo rock song that reflects the anger of the lyrics, but with a sense of sarcasm and humor." Gov't Mule has built a reputation as one of the great live bands in the jam community.  Deluxe edition includes 6 additional tracks.   Gov't Mule has built a reputation as one of the great live bands in the jam community.

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

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

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

The Tangent/The Slow Rust of Forgotten Machinery ....import CD $22.99

A rare slice of pointedly political prog rock, 2017's The Slow Rust of Forgotten Machinery, is The Tangent's ninth studio album. Band leader Andy Tillison is joined by a superb line-up including Jonas Reingold on bass, Luke Machin on guitars and vocals, and Theo Travis on sax and flutes, plus new member Marie-Eve de Gaultier on keyboards and vocals. There are also guest appearances from author/playwright and Chumbawamba founder Boff Whalley on vocals, and upcoming DJ/producer Matt Farrow.  Andy Tillison had this to say on the album, "Roger Waters did prove the ability of progressive music to act as a vehicle to communicate ideas about the current world scene. In both Pink Floyd's The Final Cut and his Amused to Death albums, Waters set a challenge to others in the genre. A challenge which has not been frequently accepted."  The album sees The Tangent in political commentary mode, focussing on the plight of refugees from war torn parts of the world and the way in which they are treated in the West and by the UK's tabloid press.   The Slow Rust of Forgotten Machinery is also an uncompromising progressive rock record full of intricacies, long pieces, challenging arrangements and virtuoso playing. New sounds and styles also enter the frame - the band have brought a DJ on board for some sections - as part of the band's desire to re-purpose the possibilities of progressive music.

Bent Knee/Land Animal ....CD $16.99

landanim.jpg (8165 bytes)

Bent Knee formed in 2009 as a democratic collective determined to push the boundaries of pop and rock. Lead singer and keyboardist Courtney Swain's soaring vocals are instantly arresting. Guitarist Ben Levin is one of the most dynamic and versatile guitarists around, shifting between the raging and raucous to the sublime and meditative. Bassist Jessica Kion and drummer Gavin Wallace-Ailsworth combine into an enthralling rhythm section that's equal parts powerhouse and nuance. Violinist Chris Baum's kinetic violin work provides drama, grace and intrigue. World-class producer and live sound designer Vince Welch weaves it all together with a captivating, expert touch. The band has gone from strength to strength in recent years. Its last two albums, 2016's Say So (on Cuneiform) and 2014's Shiny Eyed Babies, were hailed as significant art-rock achievements. The group has performed hundreds of shows across the world to date. During the fall of 2016, the band played for ecstatic audiences. With Land Animal, Bent Knee has elevated its storytelling ambitions to create narratives that reflect and refract the currents we're exposed to in the news every day. Like the band's previous work, Land Animal is full of fresh, sophisticated arrangements and beautiful vocal harmonies, but it's also its most direct statement to date.

Next to None/Phases ....import CD $21.99

There's been a strong feeling a while now that Next to None are stretching progressive metal into fresh areas. And the band's second album. 'Phases,' will seal their reputation as individuals who are making a mark on the scene in their own right. Formed in 2012, and based in Lehigh Valley area of Pennsylvania, the foursome released their well received debut 'A Light in the Dark' during 2015 on InsideOut. But if this set a template for the band's style, then this has now been excitingly stretched. "We actually began to write songs for the new record as soon as we finished the first one," explains drummer Max (son of Mike) Portnoy. As previously, this involved the duo of Portnoy and vocalist/keyboard player Thomas Cuce collaborating in this part of the process. And, also to some extent mirroring 'A Light in the Dark,' there's a partial concept here.

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

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

Mumpbeak/Tooth ....CD $15.99

On the follow up to their formidable self-titled debut on RareNoise Records in 2013, Mumpbeak again conjures up memories of vintage King Crimson, Emerson, Lake & Palmer, Gentle Giant and other prog-rock pioneers on Tooth. Led by the innovative keyboardist-composer and Oslo-based UK expatriate Roy Powell, whose other RareNoise output includes releases by Interstatic and Naked Truth, and featuring bassist and longtime collaborator Lorenzo Feliciati (Powell's band mate in Naked Truth who has also released the solo albums Frequent Flyer and KOI on RareNoise), this new edition of the prog-rock-jazz power trio showcases the remarkable Norwegian drummer Torstein Lofthus, who is also a member of the avant garde group Shining and the psychedelic prog-rock-jazz trio Elephant 9.

Led Bib/Umbrella Weather ....CD $15.99

Led Bib/Umbrella Weather ....CD $15.99

Easily the most adventurous and audacious outfit on today's UK jazz scene, Led Bib has built a reputation over the course of seven albums for expansive improvisations and treks into genre defying music of throbbing intensity. For their RareNoise Records debut, the five-piece group from London continues pushing the envelope on Umbrella Weather. Fueled by the muscular drumming of ringleader Mark Holub and the intense fuzz bass lines of Liran Donin, further tweaked by atmospheric washes and crunchy keyboard action from Toby McLaren and sparked by the pungent twin alto saxes of Peter Grogan and Chris Williams, Led Bib stakes out a unique spot in the musical terrain that falls somewhere between the realms of John Zorn, Ornette Coleman, Charles Mingus and Eric Dolphy.

Gaudi/Magnetic ....CD $15.99

Gaudi/Magnetic ....CD $15.99

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

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

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

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

Cuong Vu 4Tet/Ballet (the Music Of Michael Gibbs) ....CD $15.99

2017 release. On the heels of his acclaimed 2016 recording, Cuong Vu Trio Meets Pat Metheny and his 2014 collaboration with electro-acoustic pianist-composer and Director of the School of Music at the University of Washington Richard Karpen on their Ellington-Strayhorn tribute That the Days Go By and Never Come Again, trumpeter-composer Cuong Vu joins forces with guest guitarist Bill Frisell on Ballet, a tribute to renowned composer-arranger Michael Gibbs. With regular Vu 4Tet bassist Luke Bergman and drummer Ted Poor, the four exchange ideas in the moment in a collective fashion on the expansive opening track, "Ballet," which gradually morphs into a kind of quirky, dissonant blues waltz featuring brilliant solos from Vu and Frisell. Regarding this exhilarating Vu 4Tet project, Vu says, "This was a very collective/equal opportunity effort, so we just played and dealt with the cards collectively as they were dealt. I think it just comes down to the collection of players and our individual aesthetics coming together and trying to find a common goal/language." They succeed in triumphant fashion on Ballet, the second collaboration between Cuong Vu and Bill Frisell (their first was Vu's 2005 ArtistShare album Mostly Residual).

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

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

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

Ju/Summa ....CD $15.99

Following the success of their acclaimed RareNoise debut, 2014's Ju Meets Moster (a killer collaboration with renowned Norwegian saxophonist Kjetil Moster) the experimental Budapest-based trio of guitarist Adám Meszaros, bassist Erno Hock and drummer Andras Halmos once again bridges hellacious free jazz, throbbing hardcore rock and spacious world and ambient music on their ecstatic, envelope-pushing opus, Summa. Alternately calm (the 12-minute "Jimma Blue") and crushing ("Mongrel Mangrove," "My Heart Is Somewhere Else" and the blistering title track), Summa stands as another powerful manifesto against complacency by the renegade trio. Moster does appear as special guest alongside celebrated Hungarian electroacoustic composer Balint Bolcso on the expansive 12-minute track "Partir," providing a bridge to the first album.

Reflections in Cosmo/Reflections in Cosmo ....CD $15.99

Reflections in Cosmo/Reflections in Cosmo ....CD $15.99

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

The hellish abstract metalcore quartet of Lorenzo Esposito Fornasari on vocals, Eraldo Bernocchi on baritone guitars, Colin Edwin on bass and Jacopo Pierazzuoli on drums are back with their most focused and terrifying album to date. They attack the lands of mathcore, prog, ambient and drone with relentless and fear-inducing mathematical brutality.

The album is produced and mixed by Nigel Godrich (Radiohead, Paul McCartney, Beck, U2), and includes 12 new Roger Waters musical compositions and studio performances.

This long-awaited follow-up, Is This the Life We Really Want ?, is an unflinching commentary on the modern world and uncertain times, and a natural successor to such classic Pink Floyd albums as Animals and The Wall.

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

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

RPWL/A New Dawn ....double CD$15.99

The concept albums "Wanted" (2014) and "Beyond Man And Time" (2012) are widely recognized as the pinnacle of German art rock giants RPWL's discography which comprises more than a dozen releases. On the occasion of it's 20th anniversary, the band is now set to release the long-awaited concert movie "A New Dawn." It documents the last stop of the tour in support of the "Wanted" album and that evening the Bavarians played in their hometown of Freising, Bavaria in October 2015. The show is an elaborately assembled combination of elements of a rock concert, a multimedia event and a play. This was the first and only time that the mammoth-production was brought to the stage. In addition to the musicians themselves, the cast comprised around fifty actors and extras. The movie "A New Dawn" will be release Blu-ray as well as DVD.  The "Wanted" tour lead RPWL through eight European countries where the group celebrated the gigs as delicately woven multi-media events. The last show of the tour, on 31. October 2015, took place under very special circumstances: for the occasion of this very special performance the show was not only massively re-arranged altogether, but it even received a new title: "A New Dawn." Selected "Wanted" chapters were extended and the production directly established a connection with the "Beyond Man And Time" album - through the medium of acting. All in all the performance turned into a memorable show in front of an enthusiastic audience. RPWL refer to the night as one of the absolute highlights in their career - and rightly so. The "A New Dawn" Blu-ray and DVD versions comprise identical two-hour-long stereo and surround mixes of the concert, each with audio tracks in both English as well as German. For the English version the lines from the German-language live show were dubbed by the narrator and the actors. In both formats the following extras can be selected independently from the main movie: a fifteen-minute "Making of" of the concert movie, the recording of the encore of the Freising show "Unchain The Earth" as well as a hitherto unreleased video clip of the splendid "Beyond Man And Time" long track "The Fisherman."

Nektar/Live in Bremen ....double CD $17.99

Nektar/Live in Bremen ....double CD $17.99

In 1969, a band was formed that still is one of the most important and most famous progressive and art-rock formations in the world: Nektar. Founded by the Brits Roye Albrighton, Allan Freeman, Ron Howden and Derek Moore in Hamburg, the band quickly became world famous and turned into a legendary idol for other musicians at that time. Their terrific live performances have contributed to this reputation, which aside from elaborately created music also offered opulent light installation and slides projections. Even though the gentlemen in 1973 slightly self-ironically put the headline NOT the number one German band in England but the number one English band in Germany on one of their posters, they already were stars in all of Europe and the USA. The long-playing records Remember the Future and Down to Earth achieved gold status, to describe their tours as well attended would be a shameless understatement. But as life goes, after some ups and downs in the early 1980s, the band broke up. Luckily not forever, because in 2001, Albrighton, Freeman and Ray Hardwick revived the band Nektar. And with enormous success until today, as many fans in the world can confirm. This 2CD set was recorded in 2015 at a concert hosted by the well known Meisenfrei Blues Club in Bremen and is the next issue of a live-collection that is presented by Sireena Records and ON STAGE. It is also the last concert of Nektar with its founder Roye Albrighton, who died on July 26, 2016 after a long illness.

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

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

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

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

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

Snakefinger/Manual of Errors ....CD $18.99

Snakefinger/Manual of Errors ....CD $18.99

Snakefinger surely needs not much of an introduction. Born Philip Charles Lithman in London, he moved to San Francisco in 1971. His roots lie in the British blues scene, but he soon became friends with The Residents who also gave him the name Snakefinger based on a photograph of Lithman performing, in which his finger looks like a snake about to attack his violin. In 1972 Lithman returned to England and formed the pub rock band Chilli Willi and the Red Hot Peppers. After the lack of success of the second album, he returned to the states and work on his first solo album began. Both "Chewing hides the Sound" and "Greener Postures" were co-written with The Residents. His third solo effort, "Manual of Errors" still came out on Ralph Records, but it was mostly written by Snakefinger himself. A couple tracks were collaborations with the Eyeball ones again and some cover versions also appeared. As with our previous Snakey re-issues, "Manual of Errors" will feature lots of bonus tracks again and will be remastered carefully.

Neil Ardley's New Jazz Orchestra/On the Radio: BBC Session 1971 ....import CD $19.99

Archive release. This debut release of Neil Ardley and his New Jazz Orchestra BBC broadcasts from 1971 measure a year of change for the band's musical director. The first session captures the full majesty of the NJO at the height of it's powers in a Jazz Club session from February with a 20-performer line-up pre-recorded at London's Camden Theatre. Humphrey Lyttelton helms proceedings; musicians include Ardley, Harry Beckett, Ian Carr, Henry Lowther, Derek Wadsworth, Mike Gibbs, Don Rendell, Barbara Thompson, Dick Heckstall-Smith, Dave Greenslade, Dave Clempson Jeff Clyne, Jon Hiseman and Frank Ricotti. Fast forward to September of that year, and we have Ardley's epic 'The Time Flowers' on Jazz in Britain. Inspired by JG Ballard's sci-fi short story, 'The Garden of Time,' he plays alongside Carr, Rendell, Ricotti, Barry Guy, the London Studio Strings with Keith Winter on electronics in a 30-minute set that declares Ardley's growing intentions toward the electronic media that were to become increasingly integral to his later recorded work. Bearing faultless performances from the cream of modern British jazz, this latest Dusk Fire release is another essential purchase for connoisseurs of the genre.

Only a few German rock bands can bear the word legendary. Epitaph is one of them to all intents and purposes. Founded in 1969 they already wrote music history during the 70s. Touring with Joe Cocker, Rory Gallagher, Golden Earring or ZZ Top, as well as countless festival shows made them one of the hottest and most iconic German rock bands. The old station in Hannover-Anderten has become a lovely and popular starting point for the Epitaph tours over the years. The band especially appreciated intimate atmosphere and great sound. Reason enough to use this location for recording an concert for a release as DVD/2CD boxset. A Night at the Old Station contains old and new songs of Epitaph in a surprising -mostly acoustic- set. Epitaph was supported by Tim Reese on violin and Agnes Hapsari and Klaus Henatsch (Nektar) on piano/keyboards.

Harald Grosskopf & Eberhard Kranemann/Krautwerk ....CD $17.99

Harald Grosskopf & Eberhard Kranemann/Krautwerk ....CD $17.99

Harald Grosskopf and Eberhard Kranemann transmit cosmic sonic visions of today, tomorrow and beyond in one of the most exciting collaborations in recent years. Krautwerk - German efficiency, original, sensational and mind-melting man-machine transcending art, the philosophy of unbounded sonic colours and resistance thinking. For the first time ever, Harald Grosskopf (Synthesist, Ashra, Klaus Schulze) and Eberhard Kranemann (ex- Kraftwerk, Neu!, Fritz Muller) transmit their cosmic sonic visions of today, tomorrow and beyond. The Germans are great inventors. They gave us the automobile in 1886, Adidas in the 1920s and then Krautrock in 1970s. The golden children of the genre, Harald Grosskopf and Eberhard Kranemann, have united to celebrate the genre's reign as Krautwerk. Originating from the German cities Berlin and Dusseldorf, Krautrock dominated the musical field from 1969 – 1975. Its influential force impacted rock and techno. Lose yourself in the trippiness of Krautwerk's psychedelic soundscapes and celebrate a movement that changed music as we know it. Kranemann and Grosskopf did not know each other until they met for the first time in 2016 on a festival where they both performed their solo projects. They decided to merge the different sounds of Dusseldorf and Berlin school of electronic music together, resulting in energetic, contemporary new sounds.

Wolfgang & Flo Dauner/Elektronische Mythen ....CD $11.99

Wolfgang & Flo Dauner/Elektronische Mythen ....CD $11.99

They were exciting years, when Miles Davis used to drive through New York in an open sports car listening to Stockhausen's tape manipulations, and when Kraftwerk and Can in Dusseldorf and Cologne developed their own special style of Kraut rock. Experimentation with electronic music, and research into all its possibilities, were very exciting, but could be extremely frustrating too, especially under live conditions. There were no instructions, no one who could help you to find the different sounds and effects. Plus there was the problem that the Moog had no memory, so that each musical step had to be noted down and set up again in the same constellation for the performance.

The Electric Family/Terra Circus ....CD $17.99

The Electric Family/Terra Circus ....CD $17.99

Founded in Bremen by Tom The Perc Redecker, from the beginning the project became a multimusical association, which knows no boundaries and seems to feel comfortable in every genre, regardless of whether it is prog-, Kraut-, punk-, jazz- or folkrock. It's not surprising that numerous musicians from such diverse bands as Amon Duul II, Die Arzte, Grobschnitt, Boa's Voodoo Club, Lokomotive Kreuzberg, Pankow, Rockhaus, Mojo Club, Emsland Hillbillies - to name only a few - joined The Electric Family in the studio and on stage. One can say without exaggeration, that Terra Circus has become the most powerful and impulsive album of the Electric Family. The energy is almost tangible, and especially guitarist Rolf Kirschbaum (The Pachinko Fake, ex-Witt, ex-Fehlfarben) rages as if it were about his life. But the whole band is presented in the very best condition: Harry Payuta shows repeatedly that he is one of the best sitarists of the time, analogue keyboardist Anders Becker shines on his keys, the two drummers Janssen and Ulrich push and push forward uninterruptedly, and bandleader The Perc holds the band together with his 6 or 12 strings. The deeply self-contained cover versions were always the salt in the soup of the Electric Family, Lucrecia, my Reflection of the Sisters Of Mercy is a psychedelic monster with sitar support, and Mary, Mary so contrary from Can grows to a passionate contribution with slide guitar and a three-pipe organ solo in the key part. A strong,album!

John Cale/Live at Rockpalast ....double CD + double DVD $22.99

John Cale/Live at Rockpalast ....double CD + double DVD $22.99

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

Jane with Peter Pankas/Live at Rockpalast: Bonn 2004 ....double CD $21.99

Jane with Peter Pankas/Live at Rockpalast: Bonn 2004 ....double CD $21.99

To fit the nostalgic occasion at the Krautrockpalast in December 2004 Peter Pankas Jane played a colorful best of program with the most important and popular tunes of their career. The concert at the Bonn Harmonie ends with the ballad 'So, So Long,' a number which today - after more than twelve years and many Jane shows later - almost sounds like a farewell to singer and drummer Peter Panka. For Live at Rockpalast 2004 is among the last performances of the charismatic Jane founder having been captured on DVD. In contrast to the 2005 released DVD Krautrock-Meeting, where only three songs of the Jane performance were already released, this new CD/DVD-set Live at Rockpalast 2004 includes the whole concert of the Hanoverian Band and a detailed bonus interview with Nadolny and Epitaph-bassist Kolbe.

Gary Moore/Grinding Stone ....import CD $15.99

Gary Moore/Grinding Stone ....import CD $15.99

Gary Moore was a celebrated blues guitarist from Belfast. He started playing in the sixties with Phil Lynott and Brian Downey which led to him joining first Skid Row and then Thin Lizzy followed by Colosseum II. Moore also enjoyed a distinguished solo career sharing the stage with the likes of B. B. King, Albert King, John Mayall, Jack Bruce, Albert Collins, and Greg Lake. He is perhaps best known for his top ten hit Parisienne Walkways. Grinding Stone was his first solo outing released under the name Gary Moore Band. It's an eclectic mix of boogie, rock and blues as well as 17 minutes of guitar and keyboards (courtesy of Jan Schelhaas) in the surprisingly funky track "Spirit." Schelhaas went on to play in Caravan and Camel.

Neil Innes/Off the Record ....CD $16.99

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

Iain Matthews/Walking a Changing Line ....double CD $20.99

Iain Matthews/Walking a Changing Line ....double CD $20.99

Although Iain Matthews hadn't realised it at the time, Walking a Changing Line was one of the most important of his career. A comeback of sorts. It was his one and only concept album and it reaps dividends to this today. Behind his band cooperations with Fairport Convention, Plainsong, HiFi and Matthews Southern Comfort he always found time to work on his solo albums. On Walking a Changing Line he reinterpreted the songs of American singer/songwriter Jules Shear in his own and unique way. This re-release of the original album from 1988 contains tons of bonustracks on 2 CDs (demos, outtakes, live-recordings), carefully digitally remastered and in a beautiful digipack with a 16 page booklet, unpublished photos and extended linernotes by Iain himself.

Corky Laing's Mountain/Live in Melle ....double CD $17.99

Corky Laing's Mountain/Live in Melle ....double CD $17.99

Mountain is high-pressure hardrock in perfection. Songs like Mississippi Queen, Nantucket Sleighride, Theme From an Imaginary Western and Blood of the Sun, to name only a few, belong to the memorable classics of rock music that even decades after their creation haven't lost any of their vibes and fascination. Founded in 1969, the band has a turbulent history, as is expected of a formation existing for such a long time. Mountain in its original line-up only existed for three years but during that time the band was unusually productive and successful and even won three gold discs. After briefly renaming the band and multiple changes in line-up, the band can be experienced here with founding member Laurence Corky Laing of the band and his colleagues Phil Parker and Joe Venti. The gentlemen on this CD can prove that their music still belongs to the best there is and it can be enjoyed here by fans of harder tunes. This CD was recorded during the German Sleighride Tour at a concert hosted at the Burgerhaus Buer -Melle, Germany in February 2016. It is part of a live-collection that is presented and continuously extended by Sireena Records/ON STAGE.

Paul Carrack/Original Album Collection Vol 2 ....import 5 CD Boxed Set $24.99

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

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

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

Vangelis/China ....import CD $12.99

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

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

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

Vangelis/Antarctica ....import CD $15.99

Vangelis/Antarctica ....import CD $15.99

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

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

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

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

Vangelis/Mask ....import CD $12.99

Vangelis/Mask ....import CD $12.99

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

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

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

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

The title track, "The Friends of Mr. Cairo," peaked at #1 on the Canadian singles chart in late 1981. The track and it's accompanying music video serve as an ode to classic Hollywood films of the 1930s and 1940s. Most notable references are to the classic film noir The Maltese Falcon. The track incorporates sound effects and voice impressions of the stars of the era, most notably Humphrey Bogart, Sydney Greenstreet, Peter Lorre, and Jimmy Stewart.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Richard Christopher "Rick" Wakeman (born 18 May 1949) is an English keyboardist, songwriter, television and radio presenter, author, and actor. He is best known for being in the progressive rock band Yes across five tenures between 1971 and 2004 and for his solo albums released since the 1970s. An Internet pundit identifying themselves only as 'Omnes' writes: "By adapting Dvorak's New World symphony into this wicked and erotic soundtrack consisted of saxophone and synthesizer, Rick Wakeman gives this movie the perfect touch to this satire both of the American dream and of the world of prostitution, showing both the strangeness and scary atmosphere in this kind of business. Although I loved all those tracks, I have to say that my three favorites were the It's a Lovely Life with Maggie Bell - for it's craziness and it's excellent musical rhythm - the romantic Stax -with it's excellent saxophone and erotic vocals - and also The Box - a very violent instrumental track - which involves a very controversial but crucial scene that was only shown in the unrated DVD release of this movie. Though I wished they could have put more tracks such as the funny song that Anthony Perkins character sings to Joanne Crane in her apartment or the erotic track played while Bobby sees China Blue in her waitress outfit, I was very pleased by this purchase which also allowed me to discover more of Rick Wakeman's work.

Faust/Fresh Air ....CD $17.99

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

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

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

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

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

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

Miriodor/Signal 9 ....CD $17.99

Miriodor/Signal 9 ....CD $17.99

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

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

putting.jpg (11413 bytes)

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

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

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

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

Bubblemath/Edit Peptide ....CD $17.99

Bubblemath/Edit Peptide ....CD $17.99

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

David Bowie/Cracked Actor [Live Los Angeles '74] ....CD $18.99

David Bowie/Cracked Actor [Live Los Angeles '74] ....CD $18.99

David Robert Jones was born in Brixton on January 8, 1947. At age thirteen, inspired by the jazz of the London West End, he picked up the saxophone and called up Ronnie Ross for lessons. Early bands he played with - The Kon-Rads, The King Bees, the Mannish Boys and the Lower Third  - provided him with an introduction into the showy world of pop and mod, and by 1966 he was David Bowie, with long hair and aspirations of stardom rustling about his head. Kenneth Pitt signed on as his manager, and his career began with a handful of mostly forgotten singles but a head full of ideas. It was not until 1969 that the splash onto the charts would begin, with the legendary Space Oddity (which peaked at No. 5 in the UK). Amidst his musical wanderings in the late '60s, he experimented with mixed media, cinema, mime, Tibetan Buddhism, acting and love. The album, originally titled David Bowie then subsequently Man of Words, Man of Music, pays homage to all the influences of the London artistic scene. It shows the early song-writing talent that was yet to yield some of rock-n-roll's finest work, even if it would take the rest of the world a few years to catch up with him.

Neil Young/Decade ....double CD $18.99

One of the most influential artists of all time, Neil Young has set a standard of artistic integrity and iconoclastic creativity. Before starting his multi-platinum solo career, he was a founding member of the folk-rock band Buffalo Springfield and worked with the groups Crazy Horse and Crosby, Stills and Nash. The Canadian singer-songwriter was recognized by the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1995 for his work as a solo artist and was inducted into the Canadian Music Hall of Fame in 1982. Young's philanthropic work is as renowned as his musical legacy. His famous Bridge School Benefit Concert has become a yearly tradition since 1986 and continues to boast an incredible line-up of high-profile artists. Each year, Young donates all of the proceeds to the Bay Area's Bridge School, which assists children with severe physical impairments and complex communication needs. He was also one of the original founders of Farm Aid in 1985, and continues to be an active member on the organization's board of directors.

David Byrne/Live from Austin Texas ....CD + DVD $17.99

David Byrne/Live from Austin Texas ....CD + DVD $17.99

David Byrne is a modern renaissance man - and that's not just a cliche. From the heady days as co-founder of the celebrated art new-wave group Talking Heads (1976-88) through his own constantly evolving and innovative solo music career, he has pursued his muse on many different artistic fronts.  He's been the driving force behind a body of work that has been both intellectually daring and commercially successful...and he shows no signs of slowing down decades later.  This show, captured on November 28, 2001, came on the heels of his hit single, "Like Humans Do" and the release of the album Look into the Eyeball, which was another typically eclectic musical stew reflecting a variety of styles and influences, from Philly soul to a D.C. Go-Go inspired groove and his first-ever Spanish composition, "Desconocido Soy." Critics at the time called it his best work in years, and his performance on the Austin City Limits stage shows why. Joined by Austin's own eclectic tango ensemble Tosca, Byrne takes us down many different musical roads in his ACL debut.

Lindsey Buckingham & Christine McVie/Lindsey Buckingham & Christine McVie ....CD $15.99

Lindsey Buckingham & Christine McVie/Lindsey Buckingham & Christine McVie ....CD $15.99

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

Various Artists/The British Invasion ....8 CD + DVD Box Set $129.99

It came from across the pond ... bold new sounds and influences from overseas turned into a social and cultural phenomenon that transformed pop culture in the '60s. From 1964 to the end of the decade, American shores were invaded by British forces - designers, actors, singers and musicians - all armed with sophisticated style and accents and all of them marvelously and exotically "foreign."  Dominating the airwaves were tunes from some of the greatest British rock and pop legends. Musical acts ranging from buoyant pop to harder-edged rock plus the most impressive guitar band in rock music climbed the charts and changed not only what Americans listened to, but also how we thought, dressed and lived. Time Life put together the essential music collection that celebrates this new sound that captured our hearts: The British Invasion.  Includes: 8 CDs plus 1 DVD: Featuring 12 full-length performances from the world famous Ed Sullivan Show featuring the Beatles and The Rolling Stones.  Essential collection: 122 influential British tracks in all - over 6 hours of hit music.  Original songs by the original artists.  Also get a full-color, 24-page booklet chronicling this unprecedented and unparalleled period of music history.  Everything comes in a matching collector's box.  Featured artists include: Eric Burdon and the Animals, The Kinks, Herman's Hermits, The Who, The Beatles, Gerry and the Pacemakers, Rod Stewart, The Mindbenders, Elton John, The Troggs, Marianne Faithful, The Yardbirds, Deep Purple, The Spencer Davis Group, Chad & Jeremy, Mott the Hoople, Peter & Gordon and many more.

The Monks/Hamburg Recordings 1967 ....CD $10.99

The Monks/Hamburg Recordings 1967 ....CD $10.99

The Monks - a strange, rare group with a story that sounds like a drunk friend's generous hyperbole. A group of American G.I.s stationed in Germany on the precipice of Western cultural revolution starts playing music loosely connected to the rock n' roll craze, contrastingly incorporating a critical and often offensive avant-garde edge. Nothing was off limits - screeching vocals, dark aesthetics, staccato-strummed banjo, sardonic lyricism, critiques of the Vietnam War and full monk costuming down to the tonsure. When viewed on the whole, it seems like an art school student's senior thesis on what the craze means and its future possibilities. Due in large part to original Polydor vinyl collectability and years in the word-of-mouth hype machine, their legend and cult status has steadily blossomed since their last shows in 1967. Fast forward to 2017, the crew at Third Man, already huge fans, are presented with an honest-to-God treasure trove of original Monks photos, newspaper clippings, business cards, letterhead, contracts, postcards and, yes, analog tapes, containing trailblazing, wild compositions completely unheard by public ears. "I'm Watching You" would have been recorded on February 28th, 1967 at the same sessions that would produce the Monks' final single "Love Can Tame the Wild" b/w "He Went Down to the Sea." The remaining four songs were recorded after hours in the Top Ten Club later that year, just prior to the break-up of the band. These songs have been unreleased for 50 years and are quite possibly the last music left to be heard by this legendary band.

Sonny Landreth/Recorded Live in Lafayette ....import double CD $22.99

Sonny Landreth's unique spin on guitar playing has made him legendary. He combines the slide with fretted notes; this finger picking technique helps him create a complex, multi-layered sound onstage. Along the way Landreth has continued to develop his vision and his musical voice, growing increasingly original and diverse, expanding from blues, zydeco, folk, country and jazz into increasingly category- blurring musical excursions. The album Recorded Live in Lafayette is a perfect showcase of Landreth's talents and skills; disc one contains a full acoustic set and disc two his full electric set.

Magnum/The Valley of Tears - The Ballads ....CD $15.99

Magnum/The Valley of Tears - The Ballads ....CD $15.99

Renowned not only for their powerful rock songs but also for countless moving ballads, British rock icons Magnum are set to surprise their fans with a very special release, The Valley of Tears - The Ballads, an album featuring ten of their most accomplished ballads, all of them remastered and in parts even re-recorded and remixed.  Guitarist, composer and producer Tony Clarkin: "The release of this album was originally inspired by my daughter. A few months ago she asked me, 'Magnum have so many beautiful quiet numbers, why don't you put together a compilation highlighting some of the most powerful tracks?' Olly Hahn of Steamhammer/SPV was immediately taken by the concept, so I set down to work on it."  The Valley of Tears - The Ballads contains material from the band's different creative phases. Along with newly re-recorded, remixed and remastered versions of more recent ballads from albums such as Into the Valley of the Moonking, The Visitation and the current studio recording Sacred Blood-Divine Lies, there will also be a newly re-recorded acoustic version of their classic Lonely Night and a new haunting live version of their hit When the World Comes Down from their 1986 cult recording Vigilante.

Booker T. & The MG's/Stax Classics ....CD $11.99

Booker T. & The MG's/Stax Classics ....CD $11.99

This collection highlights the house band, and bedrock of Stax Records, Booker T. & the MGs. Along with providing the musical backdrop for everyone on the label, from Otis Redding and Eddie Floyd to Sam & Dave, and providing a ground-breaking example of racial integration in the segregated South, the four-piece would score a series of chart hits with their unique soulful instrumentals, "Hip Hug-Her," Time Is Tight," "Soul Limbo" and "Boot-Leg," all included on this collection. And it goes without saying, this album would not be complete without Booker T. & The MGs signature tune, the funky little single B-side, that later became a #1 R&B hit in its own right, "Green Onions."

Allen Ginsberg/The Complete Songs of Innocence and Experience ....double CD $22.99

Allen Ginsberg/The Complete Songs of Innocence and Experience ....double CD $22.99

The original 1970 MGM album on CD and Digital for the first time, plus a second disc of rarities and previously unissued songs. Lester Bangs, in Rolling Stone magazine, said the album was, "like a labor of love, a salute from a young visionary to an ancient sage." Allen Ginsberg began "tuning" William Blake's poetry in 1968 (inspired by attending the tumultuous protests at that year's Democratic Convention in Chicago), but the origin of the album dates back to a 1948 vision or "auditory illumination" as he called it, of William Blake reciting poetry to him in his Spanish Harlem apartment. Moved by this, Ginsberg began to set Blake's poetry to music. In 1969, he began recording musical versions of Blake's poetry with Peter Orlovsky, and jazz legends Bob Dorough, Don Cherry, Elvin Jones! 19 of those songs were released the following year as Songs of Innocence and Experience. That material finally arrives on CD as The Complete Songs of Innocence and Experience in 2017. In addition to the original LP, 2 previously unissued tracks have been added: an alternate take, as well as a song intended for the LP, but left off due to time constraints. But, that is not where the story ends. In 1971, Ginsberg returned to the Blake material, recording 11 songs in San Francisco with avant-garde cellist Arthur Russell - four of which were never issued. The ensemble also recorded 3 Tibetan mantras with a Buddhist choir - resulting in a full on psychedelic East-West experience - also all previously unissued. This material comprises a second CD, truly making this Complete. With restoration and mastering from Grammy winner Michael Graves, the material sounds timeless. Complied by producer Pat Thomas (who also worked on 2016's The Last Word on First Blues box set), this double CD package includes a new essay from Thomas, who tracked down several of the original musicians (never before interviewed) for this project uncovering rare session photos as well. Blake's writings from the late 18th century and Ginsberg's interpretations from the 20th come full circle in the 21st century's The Complete Songs of Innocence and Experience. And remember: "The Beats did everything first" - Jimmy Page.

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

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

Blondie/Pollinator ....CD $13.99

Blondie/Pollinator ....CD $13.99

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

He started in 1970 with Magnetic South and Loose Salute, country-rock albums that featured Nesmith and The First National Band, a group he collaborated with for several years. Infinite Tuesday features a song from each album: "Silver Moon" from Loose Salute and "Joanne" from Magnetic South, Nesmith's first Top 40 hit as a solo artist.

Wizz Jones, Pete Berryman & Simeon Jones/Come What May ....CD $16.99

Wizz Jones, Pete Berryman & Simeon Jones/Come What May ....CD $16.99

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Flip Wilson was an African American comedian and actor. In the early 1970s he hosted his own weekly variety series, The Flip Wilson Show. The show earned him a Golden Globe and two Emmy Awards. In January 1972, Time magazine featured him on their cover and named him "TV's first black superstar." His career took off during the 1960s when he became a regular at the Apollo Theatre in Harlem, and was a favorite guest on the Tonight Show. He was also on Laugh-In and The Ed Sullivan Show. The routine "Christopher Columbus" brought Wilson to the Hollywood industries attention and led to the development of his own television show. In this bit he retells the story of Christopher Columbus from an urbanized viewpoint in which Columbus convinces the Spanish monarchs to fund his voyage by noting that discovering America means that he can also discover Ray Charles. Cowboys & Colored People, reaching # 34 on the Billboard charts in 1967, is making it's worldwide CD debut. You Devil You, originally hitting the Billboard charts in 1968, is making it's worldwide CD debut. Tickle your funny bone and add Flip Wilson to your comedy CD collection!

Larry Coryell/At the Village Gate ....CD $14.99

Larry Coryell/At the Village Gate ....CD $14.99

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

Grateful Dead/Road Trips Vol. 4 No. 5 - Boston Music Hall 6-9-76 ....triple CD $49.99

Grateful Dead/Road Trips Vol. 4 No. 5 - Boston Music Hall 6-9-76 ....triple CD $49.99

It was our great honor at Real Gone Music to issue all 36 volumes of Dick's Picks, the Grateful Dead's landmark live concert series; over the four and a half years it took us to release all three dozen titles, we sometimes felt like we were on the greatest Dead tour ever, every single show a classic! Well, our diligence in releasing Dick's Picks has had a "Ripple" effect, for now the band is entrusting us with releasing its subsequent live concert series, Road Trips! Unlike Dick's Picks, which saw about two-thirds of its titles go to regular retail in their original incarnations, NONE of the entries in the Road Trips series were offered to retail outlets outside of the Dead's own website. The Road Trips series was also a little different from Dick's Picks in that the early volumes assembled tracks from different shows on the same tour, while later volumes presented single shows. Since it worked so well with Dick's Picks, we are reissuing the last titles first, and we have enlisted the series' original designer, Steve Vance, to convert the original wallet packaging to customer-friendly triple-CD jewel case. Another cache of brilliant live Dead, finally available in record stores!

In June 1976, the Grateful Dead ended its 20-month hiatus from touring with two shows at the Paramount in Oregon, then headed to Boston and the acoustically friendly confines of its Music Hall for a four-night run. This show is from the first night and was hence the third show on the "comeback tour." The band is clearly settling back into a groove here; in particular, Jerry Garcia's voice is as strong as it's ever been, and the inclusion of some unusual material (like the only encore version of "Franklin's Tower" ever performed) makes this a highly collectible show. Among the highlights are a dazzling "Crazy Fingers" from Blues for Allah (which had been released during the band's hiatus, so new to set lists), and an exceptionally long and tight "St. Stephen" to lead off the second set. The third disc offers bonus gems, like a rare version of "Mission in the Rain," from the last night of the run, too; excellent sound throughout, long out of print!

Laura Nyro/A Little Magic a Little Kindness - The Complete Mono Albums Collection ....double CD $22.99

Laura Nyro/A Little Magic a Little Kindness - The Complete Mono Albums Collection ....double CD $22.99

Can you surry? Can you picnic? Laura Nyro, to use her own fanciful word, surried onto the scene 50 years ago with the release of her debut album More Than a New Discovery. Its title was certainly apt. Throughout the course of her life, Nyro wrote and introduced some of the most beloved popular songs of all time with her singular fusion of pop, jazz, R&B, soul, Broadway, and folk sounds. Real Gone Music and Second Disc Records are proud to celebrate the golden anniversary of Laura Nyro's debut with a landmark 2-CD collection. A Little Magic, A Little Kindness: The Complete Mono Albums Collection features, for the very first time on CD, both of Nyro's original mono albums newly remastered by Vic Anesini at Sony's Battery Studios from the original master tapes. More Than a New Discovery, originally released on Verve Folkways in 1967, premiered the songs that Barbra Streisand, Blood Sweat and Tears, and The 5th Dimension would all take up the charts, including "Stoney End," "And When I Die," "Blowin' Away," and perhaps the most famous song Nyro ever wrote, "Wedding Bell Blues." This special edition restores the original album sequence and mono mix from the very first version of the album. In 1968, Nyro moved to Columbia Records for her most acclaimed album, Eli and the Thirteenth Confession. Its songs were once again adopted by other artists such as Three Dog Night, Frankie Valli, and of course, The 5th Dimension. Featuring "Eli's Comin'," "Emmie," "Sweet Blindness," and the era-defining "Stoned Soul Picnic," this ultra-rare album - thought by many Nyro connoisseurs to be superior to the familiar stereo version - also makes its maiden appearance on CD. A handful of bonus tracks round out this special package, including the Bones Howe-produced "pop" version of "Save the Country," and the CD debuts of the Verve "censored" single version of "Stoney End" and the single mix of "Eli's Comin'." The Second Disc's Joe Marchese provides new liner notes. A Little Magic, A Little Kindness: The Complete Mono Albums Collection pays tribute to one of pop's most enduring iconoclasts. It's a soul picnic you won't want to miss.

The Rascals/The Complete Singles A's & B's ....double CD $32.99

The Rascals/The Complete Singles A's & B's ....double CD $32.99

With two fantastic singers and songwriters in Felix Cavaliere and Eddie Brigati, an underrated guitarist and songwriter in Gene Cornish, and the great Dino Danelli on drums (plus a pair of studio Svengalis in engineer Tom Dowd and arranger Arif Mardin to rival George Martin), The Rascals were the closest answer America had to The Beatles during the '60s. The resemblance wasn't limited to the composition of their line-up and the profusion of hit releases, either; like the Fab Four, The Rascals were able to author chart-topping singles while simultaneously crafting albums that held together as artistic statements. Witness the fact that The Rascals' albums have seen numerous reissues by multiple labels; their singles, on the other hand, have eluded a comprehensive collection, in large part because the band had two phases to their career, one with the Atlantic label, the other on Columbia. Now, just over 50 years after they first hit the top of the charts with "Good Lovin'," Real Gone Music is proud to present the first-ever compilation to collect all of the band's single sides in one place. At 47 songs strong, The Complete Singles A's & B's includes the A and B-side of every single The Rascals ever cut, both their hit Atlantic tracks and - for the first time ever on CD - their later Columbia 7" releases. Along the way you'll hear such legendary songs as "I Ain't Gonna Eat Out My Heart Anymore," "Good Lovin'," "Groovin'" (also here in its Spanish and Italian versions!), "I've Been Lonely Too Long," "A Girl Like You," "How Can I Be Sure," "A Beautiful Morning," "People Got to Be Free," "See," and more, the earlier tracks in their original mono single mixes (termed "the money mixes" by Cornish), the later songs in their stereo single mixes (28 of the 47 songs on the collection are mono). Such a monumental release deserves annotation commensurate with its importance, and for this 2-CD set Ed Osborne has penned a 4500-word essay containing exclusive quotes from Cavaliere, Brigati, and Cornish, punctuated with rare European picture sleeve singles and photos. Remastered by Mike Milchner at SonicVision, and featuring a total of 19 charting songs, The Complete Singles A's & B's takes its place as the definitive career-spanning collection from America's greatest blue-eyed soul outfit.

Jessie Ed Davis/Red Dirt Boogie - The Atco Recordings 1970-1972 ....CD $17.99

Jessie Ed Davis/Red Dirt Boogie - The Atco Recordings 1970-1972 ....CD $17.99

Throughout the 1960s and '70s, Native American guitarist Jesse Ed Davis was the "go-to" sideman for a remarkable group of musicians. Starting in the mid-sixties, he toured with Conway Twitty, then become a key part of Taj Mahal's band, playing on several albums and tours including an appearance on The Rolling Stones Rock and Roll Circus and his historic pairing with Leon Russell to play on Bob Dylan's "Watching the River Flow" at the Concert for Bangla Desh (after which he accompanied George Harrison). By now, he'd caught the eye of ATCO Records, which released his debut LP Jesse Davis in 1971 featuring Russell, Eric Clapton, Gram Parsons, Merry Clayton, Ben Sidran, John Simon (producer of The Band), Alan White (of Yes), and many others including Delaney Bramlett behind the mixing desk.  A year later, Atco released Ululu containing some of the same all-stars, plus Duck Dunn, Jim Keltner, and Dr. John - and a version of George Harrison's "Sue Me, Sue You Blues" before even George recorded it. Next up, Jesse become John Lennon's guitarist on Walls and Bridges and Rock n Roll, plus Harrison's Extra Texture and Ringo Starr's Goodnight Vienna.  Davis also produced and played on Gene Clark's 1971 album White Light and appeared on Clark's No Other, Leonard Cohen's Death of a Ladies' Man, and that's Jesse taking the solo on Jackson Browne's 1972 breakout hit "Doctor My Eyes."  Despite his status as one of the all-time great session guitarists, Jesse Ed Davis's solo LPs have been out of print for years and hard to find on CD - so for the very first time, the best of the ATCO material has been collected together,coupled with some unreleased gems from the Atlantic Records vault! Real Gone Music proudly presents Jesse Ed Davis: Red Dirt Boogie - The Atco Recordings 1970-72, a 19-track collection featuring liner notes (festooned with photos from the Atco vaults) by Pat Thomas that trace the ups and downs of this supremely talented musician whose life ended tragically at the age of 43 from a drug overdose . Remastered by Mike Milchner at SonicVision to bring out every stinging lead!  The timing couldn't be more perfect, as Davis is featured in a new documentary that debuted at Sundance a few months ago: Rumble: The Indians Who Rocked the World -  including Robbie Robertson and John Trudell.

Artful Dodger/The Complete Columbia Recordings ....double CD $22.99

Artful Dodger/The Complete Columbia Recordings ....double CD $22.99

Artful Dodger was a band ahead of its time, casting hard-edged hooks into a mid-'70s pond that wasn't quite ready to bite on the genre that came to be known as power pop. Had they come along a few years later, things might have been quite different for this outfit hailing from Fairfax, VA, for their three albums for the Columbia label hold up to this day as shining examples of the style. Their first two records, 1975's Artful Dodger and 1976's Honor Among Thieves, combine Beatle-esque pop and driving rock in the finest Raspberries tradition (interestingly, Artful Dodger had a big following in Cleveland, the Raspberries' home town); they feature refreshingly straightforward production from Jack Douglas (Aerosmith) and/or Eddie Leonetti and some really tremendous songwriting especially on tracks like "Wayside" and "Scream." And 1977's Babes on Broadway, while showing some signs of a group frustrated with its lack of commercial success, definitely has its moments, particularly on the song "Can't Stop Pretending." Unfortunately, without a stylistic pigeonhole to place them in, Columbia was unable to move any copies and dropped them, which explains why Artful Dodger has been so hard to find in the digital era, with CDs of their first two albums commanding huge sums online and the third one never coming out at all. Now, Real Gone Music is shining a long-overdue spotlight on this seminal power pop band with a 2-CD set that includes all three albums plus a couple of single versions, their COMPLETE recordings for the Columbia label, newly remastered by Maria Triana at Battery Studios in New York. Jeremy Cargill's notes feature fresh quotes from band members Steve Cooper and Steve Brigida, plus we've dug up some rare photos from the Columbia vaults. Power pop fans, prepare to have your minds blown!

Marc Johnson/Years [Expanded Edition] ....CD $14.99

Marc Johnson/Years [Expanded Edition] ....CD $14.99

The Vanguard Records label is known for some obscure gems, but Marc Jonson's 1972 debut album Years, just might be the rarest - and the fairest - of them all! Not only has it never been reissued on vinyl or CD or even bootlegged, but this lost psych folk/baroque pop masterpiece marked quite a departure for a label known for its traditional folk, blues, and roots music. Comparisons have been made to Tim Buckley's Goodbye & Hello, Phil Ochs' Pleasures of the Harbor, Bill Fay's first album as well as other obscure Popsike legends such as Bobb Trimble, John Pantry, and David Stoughton ... throw in a touch of the intimate vibe of Big Star and you'll have an idea of the coolness that awaits those who discover (or rediscover) this cult classic. As Jonson remarks in the liner notes, "I used left over harpsichords from classical sessions the night before. I hired string players and a string arranger. I even met a street player named Steven Gardner who played the recorder!"  Produced for reissue by Pat Thomas, this expanded reissue of Years sports many rare vintage photos, a detailed interview with Marc Jonson by Steve Simels, an ace remastering job (from the original tapes) by John Baldwin, and four bonus tracks featuring plus a non-LP single and several 7 inch single mixes, all never before on CD!

Cheap Trick/The Epic Archive Vol. 1 1975-1979 ....CD $17.99

Cheap Trick/The Epic Archive Vol. 1 1975-1979 ....CD $17.99

If a group's made up of two genuine rock star types, a Huntz Hall lookalike with a guitar fetish, and a guy who looks like an accountant, which one d'ya think would keep track of its recording archive? Don't worry, it's not a "trick" question - it is indeed the bespectacled Bun E. Carlos, the drummer for the original line-up of Cheap Trick, who has not only commented on every song (as faithfully transcribed by Ken Sharp) but provided much of the source material for this collection of rarities from the band's early days, 18 tracks that reconfirm that the singular blend of classic rock, power pop, and glam - and inspired visual style - wielded by this outfit of Rockford, Illinois places them among the first rank of American rock 'n' roll bands. First up are three 1975 demos (of "Come On, Come On," "Southern Girls," and "Taxman, Mr. Thief") they cut at Ardent Studios in 1975 prior to signing a record deal, followed by early, 1976-1977 studio takes (produced by Jack Douglas) of "You're All Talk" and "I Want You to Want Me," an outtake, "Lookout," from their debut record, and an alternate (and nasty) version of "I Dig Go-Go Girls." On deck are an instrumental version of "Oh Boy" (the B-side to "I Want You to Want Me") and live versions of "You're All Talk" and "Goodnight" from a 1977 stand at the Whiskey, and a pair of alternate takes from the Heaven Tonight album, "Stiff Competition" and "Surrender." Also inside are five rarities from the band's famed Japanese tours, including the single version of "Ain't That a Shame," the promo-only release "Lookout," and three tracks from the out-of print Budokan II album, "Stiff Competition," "How Are You," and "On Top of the World." The "no strings" version of "Dream Police" rounds out the collection in fine style.  Compiled by producer Tim Smith, remastered by Vic Anesini at Battery Studios in New York, and featuring photos by Robert Alford, The Epic Archive Vol. 1 (1975-1979) takes its place as a key release in the august Cheap Trick discography

Southside Johnny and the Asbury Jukes/The Fever - The Remastered Epic Recordings ....double CD $24.99

Southside Johnny and the Asbury Jukes/The Fever - The Remastered Epic Recordings ....double CD $24.99

Here at last is the anthology Jukes fans have been waiting for, the one that not only includes all four albums the group cut with Miami Steve Van Zandt (including the CD debut of the promo-only LP Jukes Live at the Bottom Line), but also finally, finally presents this seminal body of work in newly remastered form. Indeed, the Epic recordings of Southside Johnny and the Asbury Jukes, the crucial early sides that made their reputation (and featured a ton of Springsteen/E Street Band spillover), have long suffered from indifferent sound and packaging, as all reissues have been taken from the same digital masters made at the dawn of the CD era. The Fever - The Remastered Epic Recordings changes all that - all four Epic albums including I Don't Want to Go Home, Jukes Live at the Bottom Line, This Time It's for Real, and Hearts of Stone (plus the single version of "Havin' a Party") appear here in brand-new, sparkling versions remastered from the original master tapes by Mark Wilder at Battery Studios in New York. What's more, the 2-CD, 40-track collection offers new liner notes by Chris Morris that feature fresh quotes from Southside Johnny himself, and Bruce Springsteen's original liner notes for I Don't Want to Go Home. Speaking of Springsteen, his fingerprints are all over these projects, with such songs as "The Fever," "Little Girl So Fine," "Love on the Wrong Side of Town," "When You Dance," "Talk to Me," "Trapped Again," and "Hearts of Stone" all written or co-written by The Boss, while Van Zandt not only produced all four Epic albums but wrote much of the repertoire. But the real star here, of course, is Southside Johnny himself, one of the great white R&B singers of this or any other time, backed by a crack band including The Miami Horns and with such special guests as Ronnie Spector, The Coasters, The Drifters, and The Five Satins. Joyful, soulful music finally sounding the way it oughtta!

Kris Kristofferson & Rita Coolidge/Full Moon [Expanded Edition] ....CD $18.99

Kris Kristofferson & Rita Coolidge/Full Moon [Expanded Edition] ....CD $18.99

It is mighty, mighty hard to believe, but this famed duets album - which went to #1 on the country charts and #26 on the pop charts - has never been issued on CD outside of Japan, and even there only in the late '80s on a limited run.  This was a love album par excellence, as the two stars had just gotten married weeks prior to the record's release in 1973; interestingly, though Kris Kristofferson, fresh from recording his country chart-topper "Why Me," was the bigger star at the time, Full Moon really played to Rita Coolidge's strengths, as it was produced by her long-time producer David Anderle and set its songs in a higher key more suited to her dreamy vocals.  The album scored a huge hit with Kristofferson's "A Song I'd Like to Sing," and followed that up with a smash version of Tom Jans' "Loving Arms.;" the duo's rendition of Kristofferson's "From the Bottle to the Bottom" also won a Grammy for Best Country Vocal Performance by a Duo or Group. In short, Full Moon is and was a stone-cold classic; and our Real Gone Expanded Edition even adds adds no less than six unreleased tracks from the A&M vaults including a Kris & Rita duet and five more Rita solo recordings from the period! Cornerstone '70s country.

Rita Coolidge/Beautiful Evening - Live in Japan [Expanded Edition] ....CD $14.99

Rita Coolidge/Beautiful Evening - Live in Japan [Expanded Edition] ....CD $14.99

Originally released on LP only in Japan, Hong Kong, and Australia, this 1980 live album captures Rita Coolidge at the height of her powers and international popularity, and with a crack band featuring Booker T. Jones, Michael Warren, Salvatore Guglielmi, Mike Utley, Richard Adelman, Phyllis Battell and Carlena Williams. The set list is just killer, with big hits from throughout her career, like "(Your Love Has Lifted Me) Higher and Higher," "I'd Rather Leave While I'm in Love," a solo version of her then-current hit duet with Glen Campbell, "Somethin' 'Bout You, Baby I Like," her smash version of the Chiffons' "One Fine Day," "Fever," and "Fool That I Am." And for an "encore," we have rounded up five studio tracks that never surfaced outside of Japan. A long-lost delight from the Rita Coolidge catalog!

Various Artists/Honeybeat Groovy 60s Girl-Pop ....CD $17.99

Various Artists/Honeybeat Groovy 60s Girl-Pop ....CD $17.99

Hey, '60s pop collectors ... do you suppose there might be some killer rare tracks lurking inside the Sony archives?  Yeah, that's what we thought, too ... so we enlisted girl group expert extraordinaire Sheila Burgel (producer of the Grammy-nominated box set One Kiss Can Lead to Another: Girl Group Sounds Lost & Found and the Japanese girl pop series Nippon Girls among other prodigious collecting feats) to go tape spelunking and see what she could come up with. And man, was THAT a good decision - cuz Sheila (and Sony Legacy producer Rob Santos) have emerged triumphantly from their journey into the deepest nooks and crannies of the Sony vaults with 19 fantastic girl pop finds that sound like they shoulda been, coulda been hits had anybody heard them the first time around! Just to give you an idea of how deep these tracks are, these 19 songs hail from no less than nine different labels (Columbia, Date, RCA Victor, Epic, Bell, OKeh, Sound Stage 7, Groove, and Amy); about a third of them have never been reissued anywhere (one, Dorothy Jones' "Talk that Sweet Talk," is previously unreleased), and the rest have only appeared on obscure imports, some of dubious origin. What's more, for her detailed liner notes, Sheila has whenever possible tracked down and interviewed the artist(s) in question, in some cases stirring up long dormant and emotionally charged memories of their days in the music business, with rare, never before seen photos lending color to their accounts.  Remastered by Vic Anesini at Battery Studios in New York, Honeybeat: Groovy 60s Girl Pop offers a treasure trove of rarities for the girl group collector, a seamless listen for a vintage pop fan, and a much-needed journey back to a more innocent time in the record business.

Soft Machine/Live at the Paradiso [Limited "Soft" Purple Vinyl Edition] ....vinyl LP $29.99

Soft Machine/Live at the Paradiso [Limited "Soft" Purple Vinyl Edition] ....vinyl LP $29.99

Soft Machine was one of the first prog-rock bands, but if your vision of prog-rock consists of musicians wreathed in pot smoke airily singing of fairies and wizards, it will be summarily dispelled by this fantastic "authorized bootleg," which captures the band in March 1969 at the Paradiso in Amsterdam, playing material that was to be released six months later on Soft Machine: Volume Two. The trio of Robert Wyatt on drums and vocals, Mike Ratledge on organ, and Hugh Hopper on bass launch what can only be called a high-decibel, jazz-rock sonic assault; "Like vindaloo for the ears" is how Hopper puts it on the accompanying notes on the inner sleeve, adding, "I do remember playing incredibly loud, Mike on fuzz organ and me on fuzz bass, both through hundred-watt Marshall stacks."  Some of the frenzied instrumental passages might recall Miles Davis' Agharta-era band, but remember, this is a trio making all this racket (in 1969, no less); Soft Machine at this point in time were on a journey all their own. This is the first-ever vinyl release of this notorious concert, and it comes on "soft" purple vinyl limited to 1000 copies. Anybody interested in just how far out rock got in the late '60s will want to give this repeated listens.

Larry Coryell/Coryell ....CD $14.99

Larry Coryell/Coryell ....CD $14.99

Larry Coryell is one of the greatest guitarists ever to walk the face of the earth, but he remains somewhat underappreciated - witness the fact that this, his second solo album, has never been released on CD until this Real Gone reissue!  1969's Coryell offers an intriguing blend of improvised and arranged pieces, with an all-star cast that includes Ron Carter, Bernard Purdie, Albert Stinson ("The Jam with Albert" is perhaps the highlight of the entire album), Chuck Rainey, and Free Spirits bandmate Jim Pepper.   Jimi Hendrix is definitely an influence on this jazz-rock gem, but Coryell takes his axe in directions only known to him; at this time, only John McLaughlin (with whom Coryell would shortly cut the one-off Spaces) could rival him in the fusion field.   Bill Kopp's notes include copious quotes from Larry Coryell himself; Mike Milchner's remastering lets this overlooked album shine.

Todd Rundgren & Utopia/Live at the Old Waldorf [Limited Gold Vinyl Edition] ....double vinyl LP $39.99

Todd Rundgren & Utopia/Live at the Old Waldorf [Limited Gold Vinyl Edition] ....double vinyl LP $39.99

This limited edition double-LP release once again proves that there were very, very few bands in the late '70s that could match the stylistic sweep, musicianly chops, and quality of repertoire wielded by Todd Rundgren & Utopia. This August 5, 1978 set at the Old Waldorf in San Francisco captures the band at the beginning of an extensive U.S. tour, but it had already been a busy year of touring for Todd, as back in May he had assembled an all-star band for residencies at the Bottom Line in New York City and the Roxy in Los Angeles. Performances from those shows that (along with a portion of an August 23 Utopia date from this tour) comprised the release of the double live LP Back to the Bars in December 1978, and fans of that album will find much to treasure here on this well-recorded release taken from the evening's stereo master tapes. Here you get a chance to hear Utopia back Todd on songs, like "Black and White" and "The Last Ride" (an epic version!), from which they were absent on Back to the Bars, and Live at the Old Waldorf offers such Utopia favorites as "Trapped," "Abandon City," "Back on the Street," and "Gangrene" from 1977's Oops! Wrong Planet that did not appear on Bars. Even more importantly, the band is on fire this night, displaying the rare mixture of note-perfect arrangements and improvisatory verve that made Todd Rundgren & Utopia such a must-see concert draw during the era. One last note about this release: because Todd was such a dynamic live performer, there have been a series of authorized live "bootlegs" that have come out on CD in recent years, but very few have come out on LP; we have cherry picked what just may be the best of the bunch and put it on double gold vinyl inside a gatefold package limited to 1000 copies. It belongs on your shelf right next to your other Rundgren records from the era...don't miss it!

Delaney & Bonnie and Friends/Motel Shot [Expanded Edition] ....CD $17.99

motel.jpg (18311 bytes)

Though they never achieved the popular success enjoyed by some of their peers, Delaney & Bonnie Bramlett spearheaded the roots-rock revolution of the late '60s and early '70s along with The Allman Brothers and The Band, turning away from the exoticism of psychedelia towards music "rooted" in blues, country, and soul.  Witness the fact that the "And Friends" that played with the pair included Eric Clapton, George Harrison, Leon Russell, Dave Mason and Bobby Whitlock....out of Delaney and Bonnie's various aggregations arose Derek and the Dominoes and Joe Cocker's band for the legendary Mad Dogs and Englishmen tour.  And for Motel Shot, the duo's fourth studio album and their third for Atco/Atlantic, the circle of "friends" included Cocker, Whitlock, and Mason, plus appearances by Duane Allman, Gram Parsons, and John Hartford among others!  But for the most part, this is a largely acoustic, charmingly informal affair dipped in gospel and dominated by the Bramletts and Whitlock; the Motel Shot title refers to informal, after hours jam sessions on the road. But there's a whole lot more to the story (and to this release!). The project began not in a hotel room but in the living room of engineer Bruce Botnick, with November 1970 sessions as a prospective release for Elektra Records. But, after Delaney had a falling out with label head Jac Holzman, the project moved to Atco, who put the "band" into a proper studio to re-record much of the material. Those later sessions comprise the original album, which has heretofore only appeared briefly on CD in Japan; but, after hours of tape research, co-producers Bill Inglot and Pat Thomas uncovered the original "living room" sessions that yielded the eight unreleased tracks on this Expanded Edition CD release - and notably is the first American CD release of the original Motel Shot album as well.   Remastered by Inglot, with an essay by Thomas that includes exclusive (and extremely candid) quotes from Bonnie Bramlett, Bobby Whitlock, Bruce Botnick, and Jac Holzman, Motel Shot finally is presented here the way it was originally conceived, and takes its rightful place as one of the great albums of the classic era of the roots rock movement.

Grateful Dead/Dick's Picks Vol. 33: 10-9 & 10-76 Oakland Coliseum Stadium Oakland CA ....4 CD Set $55.99

Grateful Dead/Dick's Picks Vol. 33: 10-9 & 10-76 Oakland Coliseum Stadium Oakland CA ....4 CD Set $55.99

Fresh from a year-and-a-half touring hiatus, and back to full, two-drummer strength, the Dead opened for The Who as part of Bill Graham's historic Day on the Green concerts in 1976. This 4-disc set - which is among the cleanest soundboard recordings in the entire series - captures both dates in their entirety, and features one of the most monumental medleys (and that's sayin' something!) in band history with a 60-minute, 10-song journey through St. Stephen/Not Fade Away/St. Stephen/Help on the Way/Slipknot!/ Drums/Samson and Delilah/Slipknot!/Franklin's Tower/One More Saturday Night on the first day. Day two offers excellent takes on two solo Garcia favorites, Might As Well and The Wheel, that were new to the concert repertoire and a particularly fine Ramble on Rose. Bill Graham had honored the Dead by selecting them to close the year's stellar series of Day on the Green concerts, and that - perhaps coupled with the presence of formidable co-headliners The Who - sparked some of the band's finest performances of the period.

Grateful Dead/Dick's Picks Vol. 34: 11-5-77 Community War Memorial Rochester NY ....triple CD Boxed Set $44.99

Grateful Dead/Dick's Picks Vol. 34: 11-5-77 Community War Memorial Rochester NY ....triple CD Boxed Set $44.99

This three-CD set won raves from the Dead collector community both for its pristine sound (mastered in HDCD) and blazing performances (check out the ever-ascending version of The Other One in the second set).  Includes the complete 11/5/77 show from the Community War Memorial in Rochester, leavened with some particularly inspired excerpts from the 11/2/77 show at the Seneca College Field House in Toronto.

Jim Kweskin/Relax Your Mind ....CD $14.99

Jim Kweskin/Relax Your Mind ....CD $14.99

After a couple of albums on Vanguard Records established Jim Kweskin and the Jug Band as a major force in the folk scene, their leader had something different in mind for his first LP without the group. Billed to Jim Kweskin, 1965's Relax Your Mind gave him the opportunity to, as he puts it in Richie Unterberger's liner notes, record "music that was a little more meaningful to me personally."  With accompaniment by the Jug Band members Fritz Richmond on washtub bass and Mel Lyman on harmonica, Kweskin delivered a set just as diverse as his records with the full Jug Band, encompassing traditional folk standards, blues, gospel, African music, and more. Mel Lyman's original, stream-of-consciousness liner notes (also included here) describe an uproarious, impromptu jam session in the Vanguard studios from which much of this record was taken; the rest comes from a live date recorded at Cambridge's Club 47 a year or two earlier.   Remastering by Mike Milchner at SonicVision and copious Kweskin quotes in the notes present this fine folk album - which sees its first domestic release to retail - in its best light.

Alice Babs & Duke Ellington/Serenade to Sweden ....CD $17.99

Alice Babs & Duke Ellington/Serenade to Sweden ....CD $17.99

Real Gone Music is proud to present what is probably the rarest album in the voluminous Duke Ellington discography, his 1963 date with Swedish singer Alice Babs, Serenade to Sweden. That year, Ellington was hired by the Reprise label as an A&R man, free to sign any artist he wanted and to record them. His first choice was Babs, who, in Ellington's words, was "the most unique artist I know...She sings opera, she sings lieder, she sings what we call jazz and blues, she sings like an instrument, she even yodels, and she can read any and all of it!" For her part, Babs (born Hildur Alice Nilson) had a hit in Sweden when was only 15 ("Swing It Teacher"), and was an iconic figure in her homeland, appearing in 14 Swedish films from 1938 to 1959. The result of this meeting of legendary musical minds was a sublime cool jazz masterpiece that, sadly, never received a proper release in the U.S. and appears to be the only Ellington album never to be reissued on CD or even digitally, having eluded even the most comprehensive compilers. Needless to say, original copies go for big Swedish krona online, and not just because it's rare; Babs' wordless vocals and scat singing on "The Boy in My Dreams," "Strange Visitor," and "Babsie" are positively Ella-worthy, and Ellington's masterful arrangements - at times filigreed with a French horn section - provide the perfect accompaniment. We've added liner notes by Scott Yanow, while the album boasts remastering by Aaron Kannowski. Fascinating for any jazz fan - essential for Ellington enthusiasts!

The 5th Dimention/The Complete Soul City-Bell Singles 1966-1975 ....triple CD $35.99

The 5th Dimention/The Complete Soul City-Bell Singles 1966-1975 ....triple CD $35.99

A 50th anniversary celebration calls for some champagne...champagne soul, that is! Back in 1966, Billy Davis, Jr., Florence LaRue, Marilyn McCoo, Lamonte McLemore, and Ron Townson first started making beautiful music together, and the world of pop music has never been the same. Now, in 2016, 50 years later, Real Gone Music is proud to present the most comprehensive 5th Dimension collection ever compiled, a 3-CD set containing their complete singles for the Soul City and Bell labels (plus their first single on the Bronco label as The Versatiles and their lone single release for Arista), 61 tracks of swinging, soulful harmonies, brilliant arrangements, groundbreaking production, and some of the best songwriting to come out of the '60s and '70s. This 3-CD set - which is housed inside a sumptuous, 8-panel digipak mini-album featuring rare photos - not only includes 30 Pop and 15 R&B hits, all in their hard-to find, mono mixes (only the last four tracks on the set are in stereo), featuring such legendary recordings as "Up - Up and Away," "Stoned Soul Picnic," "Aquarius/Let the Sunshine In," "Wedding Bell Blues," "One Less Bell to Answer," "(Last Night) I Didn't Get to Sleep at All," and "If I Could Reach You," but also some rare, non-LP single sides and single edits, nearly all making their CD debuts here! With production by the great Bones Howe, vocal arrangements by Bob Alcivar, and the instrumental accompaniment of the famed Wrecking Crew, the confluence of talent on these sides is simply staggering. And, of course, The 5th Dimension brought the songwriting genius of Laura Nyro and Jimmy Webb to the masses; their collaborations with Webb in particular remain among the pinnacles of '60s pop. Remastered by Mark Wilder at Battery Studios, and with notes by Paul Grein featuring quotes from Billy Davis, Jr. and Marilyn McCoo that trace the historic arc of the group, The Complete Soul City/Bell Singles 1966-1975 isn't just the definitive look at The 5th Dimension; it's a collection that defines the whole sunshine pop genre.

Original Soundtrack/The Fish that Saved Pittsburgh [Expanded Edition] ....CD $16.99

Original Soundtrack/The Fish that Saved Pittsburgh [Expanded Edition] ....CD $16.99

Real Gone Music and Second Disc Records are tipping off 2017 with a slam dunk release! The 1979 cult favorite film The Fish that Saved Pittsburgh featured an all-star team from the worlds of basketball and Hollywood - Julius "Dr. J" Erving, Meadowlark Lemon, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, Jerry Tarkanian, Stockard Channing, Jonathan Winters, Flip Wilson, Debbie Allen, Harry Shearer, and more - for its fantastical tale of a struggling Pittsburgh basketball team that beats the odds with a little help from the heavens. The movie's soundtrack was equally illustrious. Pop-soul maestro Thom Bell, renowned for his work with The Spinners, The Stylistics, The Delfonics, and Johnny Mathis, wrote, produced, arranged, and conducted his very first motion picture score, and the result was a soul symphony incorporating funk, disco, and jazz rhythms, and of course, Bell's trademark luscious balladry. An A-team of R&B's finest artists was enlisted to perform Bell's all-new songs, including The Four Tops, The Spinners, Bell and James, Phyllis Hyman, The Delfonics' William "Poogie" Hart, and The Sylvers, plus country superstar Loretta Lynn, ragtime legend Eubie Blake, and the one and only Doc Severinsen. Yet, when the movie came and went from theatres, so did the soundtrack album ... until now! The Fish gained a cult following on television and VHS, and now, it's time for its sizzling soundtrack to have its chance on the court, too.  Hip-hop's most tuned-in artists have already sampled these lost grooves; now you can hear the originals! The first-ever CD release of The Fish that Saved Pittsburgh boasts a sparkling new remastering from the original Lorimar Records tapes by Sean Brennan at Sony's Battery Studios, detailed liner notes by The Second Disc's Joe Marchese featuring fresh quotes from Thom Bell, and three rare bonus tracks: two distinctive 12-inch mixes of Bell and James' infectious title track, and the lush, dramatic "Pisces Theme." This deluxe Expanded Edition is nothing but net, and a must-have for classic soul fans from Philly to Motown ... and of course, Pittsburgh.  The Doctor is in!

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

The Anonymous Collection

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

#724

May 2, 2017

 

Hi, folks,

Today's newsletter has the latest new and future general import and domestic releases. If you'd like to order anything you see in today's newsletter, you'll find ordering options at http://www.artist-shop.com/order.htm . Or if you're a regular customer and want to use the info from your last order, feel free to drop me an e-mail with your selections. Also be sure to check out the Gary's Stash, Pittsburgh, Anonymous & BB Collection Sales at http://www.artist-shop.com/sale.htm . The page has recently been updated so everything listed there should still be available as of the time of this mailing.



Now some of you may be thinking, "Newsletter 724?  Hmmm, did I get # 723?"   As it happens, a good number of you did not get it possibly due to an overly descriptive paragraph of a Rick Wakeman soundtrack to a Ken Russell film.  Ooop!!!   If you were one of those that didn't get it, you'll find that newsletter here.  Now on with # 724!



Let's start with future releases which you'll find at http://www.artist-shop.com/catalog/domestic/preorder.htm .

In 2004 The Who returned to the Isle Of Wight Festival for the first time since their legendary performance in 1970. After a long absence, the festival had been reborn in 2002 and continues to this day. Their UK concerts in 2004 were the first in their home country since the death of founder member John Entwistle. As the evening shadows lengthened across the festival site, The Who took to the stage and delivered an incendiary performance packed with hit singles and classic album tracks and the concert more than lived up to the fan s expectations and memories of 1970.

The Beatles - Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band Super Deluxe Edition [4 CD/DVD/Blu-ray Combo] - Named the Greatest Album of All Time by Rolling Stone Magazine, Sgt Pepper celebrates it's 50th Anniversary this year with a new mix.

Drake, Bob - Antiquities - Boxed Set, 6PC CD $44.99

Durutti Column - Domo Arigato Deluxe with DVD, 4PC CD $28.99
3xCD+DVD  (4 disc set). 51 tracks. Factory Benelux presents an expanded 4x disc edition of Domo Arigato, the acclaimed live album by Manchester ensemble The Durutti Column, recorded in Tokyo in April 1985. Domo Arigato followed on the heels of ambitious 'modern classical' album Without Mercy a year earlier, and saw composer/guitarist Vini Reilly and percussionist Bruce Mitchell augmented by John Metcalfe on viola and Tim Kellet on trumpet. Their show-cum-recital at the Kan'i Hoken Hall on 25 April was recorded digitally and filmed on two 35mm cameras. For this greatly expanded 2017 reissue Factory Benelux have returned to the original soundboard tapes and remastered the entire 90 minute performance, in the process restoring the original running order. Disc 1 of the 4 CD set presents the original digital mix from 1985, while Discs 2 and 3 include the 2017 soundboard remaster plus a previously unreleased gig from Tokyo Loft Club on 29 April 1984. Disc 4 is an NTSC format DVD featuring a pristine transfer of the original Japanese laserdisc edition of Domo Arigato, which is the filmed version of the show with the 1985 digital mix.

Dylan, Bob - Bootleg Series Vol 1-3 Bookset Boxed Set, UK - Import, 3PC CD $32.99

Free - 5 Classic Albums Boxed Set, UK - Import, 5PC CD $25.99

Goblin - Awakening UK - Import, 6PC CD $84.99
Six CD set. An outstanding progressive rock group in their own right, Goblin's name is synonymous with the cinema of Dario Argento, the imperious director of stylized Italian horror. For him they composed such celebrated scores as Profondo Rosso - that starred David Hemmings and which provided the group with a domestic number one hit - and the hallucinatory Suspiria, where Goblin's blend of primal rhythms, haunting celeste arpeggios and unearthly voices add immeasurably to the film's delirious sensory overload. The full original soundtracks for both Profondo Rosso and Suspiria, along with a multitude of bonus tracks are featured in this six CD box set. The package also includes Goblin's scores for Argento's Tenebre and George Romero's also legendary, Zombi (Dawn of the Dead), along with the band's 1976 album Roller, their uncompromising psychedelic concept work, Il Fantastico Viaggio del Bagarozzo Mark and the rare non-album singles Chi? And Yell.

Harvey, Alex and Sensational Alex Harvey Band - 5 Classic Albums UK - Import CD $25.99

Hudson-Ford - A&M Albums UK - Import, 3 CD Set CD $26.99
Though best remembered for their membership in The Strawbs, the duo of John Ford and Richard Hudson worked together both before and after their '70 - '73 stint with the folk-prog band. Previously working in Elmer Gantry's Velvet Opera and then The Velvet Opera, the two moved on from The Strawbs and its accompanying disputes to form their own group, Hudson-Ford, in 1975. They settled on a sound that ranged from soft rock to glam, without ever completely forgetting their electric folk background. Previously just the rhythm section (bass and drums) in The Strawbs, Hudson and Ford embraced being centre stage in their new project, with Hudson leaving the drums to others in order to focus on singing and lead guitar, and Ford expanding his vocal and acoustic guitar duties. "The A&M Albums" celebrates their three album run at A&M Records, and contains debut album "Nickelodeon" and the hit single "Pick Up The Pieces," and subsequent releases "Free Spirit" and "Worlds Collide."

Humble Pie - Official Bootleg Vol 1 UK - Import, 3PC CD $21.99
Three CD set. Humble Pie's Official Bootleg Box Set Volume 1 is a raw testament to what this band did best; playing bluesy, gutsy, soulful and often hard rock, live on stage to an adoring audience. Drawn from a variety of mainly audience recordings that have previously only been available as "under the counter" pirate releases, this is an honest, and often unforgiving, tribute to a classic and much missed '70s supergroup. As well as plenty of rare memorabilia, the booklet features an essay from Malcolm Dome based on new interviews with Pie drummer, Jerry Shirley. Whilst every effort has been made to produce the best possible audio, limitations in the material drawn from various, non-standard, and unofficial 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 alternative anthology of Humble Pie live on stage from 1972-1974.

Jansch, Bert - Living In The Shadows Pt 2: On The Edge Of A Dream - 4PC CD $46.99
Four CD set. Following on from Earth's definitive collection of Jansch's 1990s works, Living In The Shadows Part 2: On The Edge Of A Dream picks up from where it left off, bringing together Bert Jansch's final recordings, made between 2000 and 2006. This remarkable anthology documents some of Jansch's finest work, and a man at the top of his game, some forty years (!) after his first release. From the brooding resonance of Crimson Moon (where Jansch is joined by Johnny Marr, Bernard Butler and Johnny "Guitar" Hodge, as well as son Adam Jansch and Bert's wife Loren Jansch) to the intimacy of Edge Of A Dream (Bernard Butler, Hope Sandoval, Dave Swarbrick, Ralph McTell, Johnny "Guitar" Hodge, Paul Wassif, Adam Jansch and Loren Jansch) to the wondrous new folk / trad folk harmony of Black Swan (Beth Orton, Devendra Banhart, Kevin Barker, Helena Espvall, Paul Wassif), these seemingly very different albums all speak of one thing: Bert's natural talent for turning out extraordinary music, regardless of genre. Disc four, The Setting Of The Sun, takes in more demos and unreleased material, with guest appearances from Gordon Giltrap and Johnny Marr adding additional delight for fans old and new. These peeks into Jansch's recording process are nothing if not fascinating, with his home studio lending itself perfectly to any recording fancy he might arrive at. Like Part 1, this deluxe case-bound set exhibits the sublime attention to detail that has become Earth Recordings' calling card. Liner notes come courtesy of colleague Bernard Butler and Bert's son Adam, while a comprehensive listening guide (by esteemed journalist, Dave Henderson) is also included.

Jethro Tull - Songs From The Wood with DVD, Boxed Set, 5PC CD $47.99
3CD/2DVD.

Kraftwerk - 3-D: The Catalogue UK - Import, 8PC CD $84.99
8 CD set. 3-D The Catalogue features new recordings of Kraftwerk's 8 classic albums performed / filmed at various locations around the world between 2012-2016 and mixed at the band's own state-of-the-art, Kling Klang Studio, Düsseldorf. Rigid board box set with lift-off lid, holding 8 x capacity wallets, with 8 CDs, plus 16-page booklet

Various Artists - Keep It Light: Panorama Of British Jazz Modernists UK - Import, 3PC CD $22.99
Keep It Light is an anthology of British modern jazz spanning the decade from the mid-fifties until eclipsed by the advent of The Beatles, R&B and Beat. The early British modernists were influenced by such black American masters as Charlie Parker, Thelonious Monk and Dizzy Gillespie, and they based their lives and art on similar premises as their heroes, affecting dark glasses and a hip stance. In contrast to the beer-swilling revivalists, pot and pep-pills were their chosen stimulants though such were the physical and psychological demands of touring, some suffered damaging encounters with hard drugs. 3CD Set. • Keep It Light captures the atmosphere of the late 50s, early 60s British jazz scene; a time of creativity, style and excitement. The sound is not American. It's not East Coast, or West Coast, but unmistakably, London.

Various Artists - The British Invasion - Boxed Set, 9PC CD $134.99
8 CDs + 1 DVD.

Allman Brothers Band - Hell & High Water: Best Of The Arista Years UK - Import CD $14.99
The giants of Southern Rock formed by brothers Duane and Gregg Allman and guitarist Dickey Betts need no introduction. This MID PRICE collection covers material recorded for Arista Records during the 1980's

Art of Noise - In Visible Silence: Deluxe Edition UK - Import, 2PC CD $22.99

Ashton Gardner & Dyke - Let It Roll Live 1971 CD $16.99
Ashton, Gardner and Dyke were a power rock trio, most popular in the early 1970s. They are best remembered for their song, "Resurrection Shuffle", a transatlantic Top 40 success in 1971. Largely taken from a concert in Belgium in 1971, this captures the offbeat British group when it was at the peak of it's popularity. The nine principal tracks are drawn from all three of the band's albums. Included, as most anyone interested in a release like this will be relieved to know, is the trio's big hit, "Resurrection Shuffle," the one Ashton, Gardner & Dyke song that most rock fans will know.

Berry, Chuck - Complete 1955-1961 Chess Singles RM, Spain - Import, 2PC CD $15.99
Two CD set. Signed to the Chess label on Muddy Waters' recommendation in 1955, he scored a million seller with his first hit 'Maybellene', and over the next few years recorded a string of classics, the songs articulating the experiences of teen life and the new consumerism in brilliantly observed lyrics as well as a musical style that combined the best of R&B and country. Even B-sides like 'Round And Round', 'Reeling And Rocking' and 'Memphis Tennessee' have become classics which have been essential elements of many bands repertoire over the years. This set comprises every A &B side released by Chuck during these phenomenal formative years, and it's a must-have for every true fan of rock' n' roll.

Big Big Train - Grimspound UK - Import CD $18.99
Three time Progressive Music Awards winners, Big Big Train, set a course for the stars with the release of their 2017 album, Grimspound, Big Big Train tell stories from the oceans and the skies, from the meadowland and the mead hall, tales of scientists and artists and poets and dreamers. Here can be found songs drawn from history and folklore, true-life tales of a flying ace, of Captain Cook's 'experimental gentlemen' on his first voyage of discovery and the legend of a ghost waiting outside an ivy gate whilst the carriers of souls circle overhead.

Blackmore's, Ritchie Rainbow - Stranger In Us All: Expanded Edition UK - Import CD $14.99
"Stranger In Us All," was issued under the name Ritchie Blackmore's Rainbow in August 1995, with a band featuring Paul Morris on keyboards, Greg Smith on bass, John O'Reilly on drums and Blackmore's Night's Candice Night on background vocals. Fronted by Doogie White, the singer was an inspired choice; a huge fan of Ritchie's career in both Purple and Rainbow, the singer formed a strong writing partnership with the guitarist. Revisiting The Yardbirds' 'Still I'm Sad', which had been recorded for Rainbow's debut, 20 years earlier, Ritchie's classical flights of fancy were able to truly fly on his arrangement of Edvard Grieg's 'Hall Of The Mountain King'. 'Wolf To the Moon', 'Hunting Humans (Insatiable)' and 'Ariel' were all worthy additions to the Rainbow catalogue. When it came to playing live, songs from both Rainbow and Purple were revisited, and we are lucky enough to have a unique live recording from a 1995 Swedish concert of 'The Temple Of The King', a song that originally appeared on the band's first record, in 1975. Also featured are a "radio edit" of the single 'Arial', plus the song 'Emotional Crime' that has previously only been released in Japan. The extensive liner notes also feature a personal account from singer Doogie White, plus plenty of artwork and memorabilia from Doogie's own Rainbow collection.

Blake, Tim - Magick RM, UK - Import CD $18.99
Digitally remastered edition of Magick, the 1991 album by Tim Blake. Tim first came to prominence as a member of Gong, where his synthesizer experimentation and mastery was demonstrated on albums such as Flying Teapot, Angel's Egg and You. He would also join Hawkwind from 1979 - 1980 and from November 2007. After departing Gong in 1975 he teamed up with French lighting designer Patrice Warrener to form Crystal Machine, pioneering the use of lasers and synthesizers in a live setting. Blake's debut solo album, Crystal Machine, was originally released in 1977 on the French experimental label Egg.

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

Brooks, Albert - A Star Is Bought (2017 Reissue) CD $13.99
Worldwide CD debut! Albert Brooks (born Albert Lawrence Einstein) is an American actor, filmmaker and comedian. A Star Is Bought was originally released on vinyl in 1975.

Browne, Duncan - Planet Earth: Transatlantic / Logo Years 1976-1979 UK - Import, 2PC CD $20.99
The proverbial musical chameleon, Duncan Browne recorded the post-psych chamber pop classic Give Me, Take You album in 1968 before re-emerging four years later with the introspective singer/songwriter hit single 'Journey'. By the mid-1970s, he had signed to the Transatlantic label as a member of Euro art rock sophisticates Metro, a trio whose calling card, 'Criminal World', was covered by David Bowie on his 1983 album Let's Dance, which went on to sell over ten million copies. Leaving Metro after their debut album, Duncan resumed his solo career, recording two highly-regarded late 1970s albums for Transatlantic (by now re-branded Logo), with The Wild Places and it's title track single both reaching the Top Ten in one or two European territories. This anthology covers his time with Transatlantic/Logo, both with Metro and as a solo performer. It includes the long-lost late 1979 recording 'China Girl' (no relation to the Bowie/Iggy Pop song), which now gains it's first-ever release in any format.

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

Alice Coltrane's devotion to spirituality was the central purpose of the final four decades of her life, an often-overlooked awakening that largely took shape during her four-year marriage to John Coltrane and after his 1967 death.

She quietly began recording music from the ashram, releasing it within her spiritual community in the form of private press cassette tapes.

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

Hughes, Glenn - Play Me Out: Expanded Edition UK - Import, 2PC CD $17.99
The first fruits of Glenn's post Purple career appeared with "Play Me Out", issued in July 1977. In many respects, this album is the logical progression from the soul, funk and R&B influences Glenn brought to the three LPs he recorded with Purple.

The album is now augmented with a second disc of bonus tracks, these include 'Smile', 'Getting Near To You' and 'Fools Condition' from 1978, originally recorded for the follow up to "Play Me Out", and 'Take Me With You' and 'She Knows', recorded by Glenn in 1994. Also featured is the disco-era mini-album "Four On The Floor", originally released by Casablanca (home to both KISS and Donna Summer) in 1979.

Composed by Jon Lord and the German composer and conductor Eberhard Schoener, 'Windows' was recorded live on June 1st, 1974 at the Herkulessaal of the Munich Residenz with the Orchestra of the Munich Chamber Opera conducted by Eberhard Schoener. The band for this special occasion is star-studded with musicians like Jon Lord's former bandmates David Coverdale and Glenn Hughes as well as Tony Ashton, Ray Fenwick and Pete York. Windows consists of two parts. "Continuo on B. A. C. H" is based on an unfinished fugue by J. S. Bach, which was based on a scale using the notes represented by his own name. Lord and Schoener interpreted and 'finished' it. "Window" is based on the idea of a form of chain poetry called Renga, developed during the 14th century in Far-East, where a group of poets co-writing would lock themselves away, writing each verse in turn and continue until the finished product emerged. The recording was re-mastered by Rob Cass at Abbey Road Studios and the artwork was reinterpreted.

Reed, Lou, John Cale & Nico - Live At The Bataclan 1972 with DVD, 2PC CD $16.99
Deluxe CD/DVD edition. The Velvet Underground were undoubtedly one of the most important bands on the history of rock music. But their greatest line-up broke up in the late 1960's, and were not to reform for nearly 30 years. And when they did, the results were generally deemed to be pretty unsatisfactory. However, as early as 1982 the two prime movers teamed up with original chanteuse Nico, for this historic album which was recorded during a live show at the Bataclan club in Paris, on January 29, 1972, and was originally broadcast on French TV. The concert marked the first time since the breakup of The Velvet Underground that Reed, Cale and Nico were on stage together. Get ready for a little slice of history.

Vanden Plas - The Seraphic Live Works - 2PC CD $16.99

Vangelis - Antarctica Canada - Import CD $15.99
Digitally remastered edition of this album from the Greek composer and musician. Antarctica is a soundtrack album originally released in 1983. It is the score to the 1983 Japanese film Antarctica directed by Koreyoshi Kurahara and was nominated by the Japan Academy for Best Music Score. The synthesizers on "Theme from Antarctica" conjure cold and desolation. "Antarctica Echoes" has minimal melody showing the vastness of the landscape. "Song of White" is cold-sounding, while "The Other Side of Antartica" has sinister sound. "Deliverance" is the theme which plays in the end of the film.".

Vangelis - China Canada - Import CD $12.99
Digitally remastered edition of this album from the Greek composer and musician. China is a studio album by Vangelis, originally released in 1979. Although he had never been to China, he employed Chinese instruments and compositional styles on this concept album. It was thematically ahead of it's time as the eastern cultural concepts were mostly unknown to the western audiences. It is one of his critically most acclaimed solo studio albums.

Vangelis - Earth Canada - Import CD $15.99
Digitally remastered edition of this album from the Greek composer and musician. Earth is the third solo album by Vangelis, originally released in 1973. The album was promoted by a concert, held in Paris, at the Olympia Theatre in February 1974.

Vangelis - Invisible Connections Canada - Import CD $12.99
Digitally remastered edition of this album from the Greek composer and musician. Invisible Connections is a 1985 album by Vangelis. One of his most experimental albums, Invisible Connections is quite different from the majority of Vangelis's work. Despite this, it can very loosely be said to belong to a trilogy of his '80s albums, the other two being Soil Festivities from 1984, and Mask from the same year as Invisible Connections. These all feature a willingness of the artist, at this time, to experiment with not only music itself, but his own album release-patterns, as the content differs so markedly from the style he was known for, up to this point. In fact, it may be that he was deliberately, and consciously, returning to a style he began in 1978, when he released Beaubourg, an album which is as experimental as Invisible Connections.

Vangelis - L'Apocalypse Des Animaux Canada - Import CD $12.99
Digitally remastered edition of this album from the Greek composer and musician. L'Apocalypse des animaux is a soundtrack album by Vangelis. The album's music accompanied a documentary series about the animal kingdom directed by Frederic Rossif that was first broadcast on French TV in 1970.

Vangelis - Mask Canada - Import CD $12.99
Digitally remastered edition of this album from the Greek composer and musician. Mask is a 1985 album by Vangelis. It was the last album he produced while living in London, and also the last he produced for the Polydor label. It is dramatic work in six movements, with somewhat dark mood and classical style which branches into ethnic styles. The album reached #69 position in the UK album charts.

Vangelis - Opera Sauvage Canada - Import CD $12.99
Digitally remastered edition of this album from the Greek composer and musician. Opera sauvage is a soundtrack album by Vangelis, released in 1979. It is the score for the nature documentary of the same title by French filmmaker Frederic Rossif. It is considered as one of Vangelis best albums, and it is his second most successful album in the USA.

Vangelis - See You Later Canada - Import CD $15.99
Digitally remastered edition of this album from the Greek composer and musician. See You Later is a album by Vangelis, released in 1980. It breaks quite violently with the style he had employed in the late 1970s and later, relying much more on vocals and being more experimental and returning (in many respects) to his early 1970s work like Earth or 666. It was never released in the United States, and is one of his rarest albums.

Vangelis - Soil Festivities UK - Import CD $12.99
Digitally remastered edition of this album from the Greek composer and musician. This 1984 release was the first in what could be very loosely said to belong to a trilogy of his 80's albums, the other two being Invisible Connections and Mask, both from the following year (1985). It is a concept album which derived inspiration from the natural elements, life processes taking place on the Earth's surface and beneath our feet. He recalls that it "was made because I wanted to make music, not sell a million records. I don't think it's possible to guarantee commercial success for an album anyway, because nobody really knows what is commercial and what isn't. Even if I went out of my way to make an album that was more accessible to the public, that would not guarantee it's commercial success".

Various Artists - Closed Circuits: Australian Alternative Electronic Music Of The 70s & 80s V. 1 Australia - Import CD $22.99
2017 collection. Closed Circuits: Australian Alternative Electronic Music Of The '70s & '80s, Volume 1 looks at what happened in Australia when the machines started taking over in the wake of punk in the late '70s. Synthesizers and other new technology accompanied a new DIY mentality and very quickly made their presence felt right across the pop spectrum. The collection looks at some of the underground innovators - the likes of Whirlywirld, Essendon Airport, Voigt/465 and Scattered Order - and also some of those who wedded the new sounds with more commercial instincts and created new styles of pop music, like the Dugites, Models, the Reels and the Machinations. It is a range of music that is sometimes fun, sometimes intensely serious, and always innovative. Closed Circuits features detailed liner notes and track-by-track commentary as well as an original design by Michael Trudgeon, the graphic designer for the seminal Melbourne '80s cassette fanzine Fast Forward (which was a vital outlet for this music back in the day), as well as numerous images. Closed Circuits provides a unique and invaluable look at the specifically Australian beginnings of key elements of the music of the '80s: music that is more popular and examined more closely now than at any time since it was originally made.

Various Artists - Guitar Masters 1 CD $13.99
Jeff Beck, Joe Satriani, Zakk Wylde, Steve Morse, Billy Sheehan, John Paul Jones, Stanley Clarke, John Scofield, Trey Gunn plus many more incredible players! Guitar Masters, Vol.1 aggressively celebrates the art of guitar and bass by serving up 18 tracks of unfettered and often astonishing brilliance. Rather than document the obvious or sate the expectations of the casual enthusiast every track challenges, puzzles, thrills, inspires, and, ultimately, delights the listener. This strategy is especially critical when dealing with the recordings of bona fide guitar heroes, as those cats are carefully crafted with angelic DNA to shift musical gears, juggle styles, and blow minds. A greatest hits package might make commercial sense for casual fans or greedy record companies, but it also does a grave disservice to the vast and diverse pool of creativity transcendent musicians employ to advance their art.

Wakeman, Rick - Crimes Of Passion CD $16.99
CD reissue of the soundtrack to this 1984 motion picture composed by former Yes keyboardist Rick Wakeman. The Ken Russell film starred Kathleen Turner, Anthony Perkins, John Laughlin and Annie Potts and explored themes of relationships and mental illness. Wakeman says: "Working with Ken Russell was not only a highlight in my musical life but also a great learning time for me as well - Ken truly understood film and film music like no other. He knew what he wanted, but after telling you then expected you to take his ideas to another level. "He was always involved and came to stay with me during my writing period. He would listen and make suggestions. He would always be complimentary if you did something he really liked and if he felt something wasn't working musically, he would discuss it with you and explain what he needed for the film."

Westbrook, Mike Concert Band - Marching Song: Vol 1 / Vol 2 Plus Bonus UK - Import, 3PC CD $22.99
Marching Song began as a one-off nine minute composition for a shelved album, recorded by Mike with a Sextet in 1966, previously unissued, it is included here as a bonus track on Disc 3. An expanded 15 piece Concert Band performance of the composition, by then developed into a 2 hour anti-war epic, first took place in 1967 at Plymouth's Athenaeum. The full piece was finally recorded in early 1969 and released by Decca Records in the UK on their Deram imprint on two separate single LP volumes. In 1970 the LPs were combined for a 2LP release in the US. This box set also features on Disc 3 both sides of a single produced by Peter of Mike's Concert Band with Norma Winstone for a one-off single in 1970, never before reissued. Two further bonus tracks are on disc 3, a 16 minute piece entitled 'When Young' and a ten minute piece called 'But It Must Get Better', both recorded as the Mike Westbrook Quartet in 1970, and previously unreleased. This box set of the two remastered Marching Song volumes, plus the bonus material mastered from the analogue tapes in Mike's archive, are packaged with a booklet containing rare photographs from the 60's live performances plus a major essay on Mike, and these compositions, by noted jazz critic and writer Duncan Heining.

Blue Cheer - Vincebus Eruptum SACD $28.99
In 1968 Blue Cheer released their first album, "Vincebus Eruptum" (some say the title is Latin for "controlled chaos" or "conquering explosion" while others say it is a nonexistent term). On this album Blue Cheer radiates extreme decibels of noise by turning up the volume to maximum capacity on their monolithic wall of Marshall amplifiers. " Their sonic assaults-which also include "Parchman Farm," "Rock Me Baby," "Doctor Please" and more-come through with stunning clarity on this hybrid SACD, available now in a limited, numbered edition!

Dylan, Bob - John Wesley Harding Hybrid SACD $39.99

Dylan, Bob - Times They Are A-changin' Hybrid SACD $39.99
Limited Mobile Fidelity SACD hybrid pressing. Immediately distinguished by the you're-either-with-us-or-against-us messages of the landmark title track, Bob Dylan's The Times They Are A-Changin' sounds an unmistakable clarion call on behalf of progress and it's unstoppable advancement. One of the Bard's trademark songs, it remains a timeless anthem with a clear sense of common purpose, a musical line in the sand that helped unite various social movements and multiple generations. The reverential 1964 record feeds off the opening tune and it's unmistakable sentiments, marching forward to confront racism, poverty, injustice, and upheaval in a stark, immediate manner unlike few albums before or since. Marking a shift from the looseness and comedy that pepper the preceding The Freewheelin' Bob Dylan, The Times They Are A-Changin' skirts any attempt at humor, sarcasm, or goofiness in favor of utmost seriousness and severity.

Holdsworth, Allan - The Man Who Changed Guitar Forever - Bonus Tracks, Boxed Set, 12PC CD $114.99
Twelve CD box set collection featuring all of Allan Holdsworth's solo albums from 1982-2003. That title is no hyperbole-it was a proclamation that ran on the cover of Guitar Player Magazine in 2008, and is a feeling shared by fans and guitarists all around the world. Still, though, Holdsworth remains largely under-rated; many who admire his most famous work have overlooked dozens of fascinating finds to be made on his decades of recordings. This collection is a treasure trove of such discoveries, as it brings you all 11 of his albums as a solo artist, producer and group leader since 1980 plus the live-in-Tokyo album Then! And a 40-page booklet full of liner notes and archival photos. You also get previously unreleased bonus tracks, and all these albums have been newly remastered from the original tapes: I.O.U. (1982), Road Games (1983), Metal Fatigue (1985), Atavachron (1986), Sand (1987), Secrets (1989), Wardenclyffe Tower (1992), Hard Hat Area (1993), None Too Soon (1996), The Sixteen Men Of Tain (2000), Flat Tire (2001) and Then! (2003). These albums, many of which have been out of print and very hard to find for years, include one intriguing composition, ethereal track, dazzling fusion rocker and daredevil guitar passage after another.

CDs

This one-off project is best known for featuring the legendary Bill Bruford (Yes, Genesis, King Crimson), on drums. As a result this CD will be of interest to Prog Rock fans the world over.

The music on "In Search of Ancient Gods" varies from symphonic and spacey multi-part suites to short electronic exercises. In Search of Ancient Gods" is a minor classic of spacey instrumental symphonic progressive rock that will take you on a cosmic journey beyond your physical senses.

Ashley, Robert - Crash - 2PC CD $24.99

Ashton Gardner & Dyke - Ashton Gardner & Dyke CD $16.99
Digitally remastered and expanded edition. Ashton, Gardner and Dyke were a power rock trio, most popular in the early 1970s. They are best remembered for their song, "Resurrection Shuffle", a transatlantic Top 40 success in 1971. Their debut album is a markedly different beast than fans of their former bands, the Remo Four and Creation, might have expected. Heavily influenced by the trio's shared love for jazz-rock, it's nine songs are moods as much as music, only occasionally stepping out into something instantly recognizable - distinctive covers of the Bee Gees' "New York Mining Disaster 1941" and Mose Allison's "Young Man Blues" are highlights. But the album peaks with it's closing track, "As It Was in the First Place" a lengthy Ashton adaptation from the classical "Adagio from Concierto de Aranjuez." With an arrangement borrowed from the Modern Jazz Quartet's own interpretation of the piece (among Tony Ashton's idols, few were more significant than MJQ's John Lewis), Ashton and Roy Dyke had already had one stab at the track, recording it with producer George Harrison during the last days of the Remo Four. The new version completely rewired that earlier performance, and stands as one of the pinnacles of British jazz-rock. The single "Maiden Voyage" offers another, while the group's sense of humor is well-evidenced by the similarly titled and themed pieces "Billy and his Piano Without" and "Billy and His Piano With."

Atomic Rooster - Devil's Answer - Atomic Rooster CD $16.99
CD reissue. Atomic Rooster was an English progressive rock band originally composed of former members of the The Crazy World of Arthur Brown.

Their genre in music is difficult to define since they went through radical changes in very short times during the life of the band. However, their best-known era represented a more hard rock/progressive rock sound. This CD is a collection of the band's radio broadcasts.

Brown, Arthur - Arthur Brown's Kingdom Come (Manchester Free Trade Hall Live 1973) CD $16.99
Though Arthur Brown never released another recording as commercially successful as "Fire", he worked with a varied group of musicians on projects called Strangelands, Puddletown Express, and (briefly) the Captain Beefheart-influenced Rustic Hinge, before releasing three albums with his new band Kingdom Come in the early 1970s. The stage acts for all three albums featured a wild mix of special effects, dramatic costumes and colourful theatrics, which were sometimes controversial. Brown had declared when Kingdom Come was formed that the intention was to create a multi-media experience and the band always followed that policy. The concepts, the music and the theatrics proved very popular on the university circuit but proved too way-out for a mainstream audience. This album captures Arthur Brown and Kingdom Come at their live pinnacle and shows them at their blistering best on stage in front of a wildly enthusiastic audience.

Jansen, Steve - Extinct Suite CD $16.99
With Steve Jansen on drums, Japan enjoyed huge success whilst simultaneously creating a back catalog of music that still inspires today. Fast forward to 2007, after many years collaborating with artists such as Richard Barbieri, Yukihiro Takahashi, Ryuichi Sakamoto, and Bernd Friedmann, Steve released his debut, solo album Slope.

The Extinct Suite is a reinterpretation of the more ambient and orchestral elements of this last album Tender Extinction. Not a remix by any means, some familiar passages are woven together with additional pieces to create a suite of instrumentals lasting over 55 minutes as one single track. Written, performed, produced and mixed by Steve Jansen. Personnel: Steve Jansen - piano, synths, sampled instruments, string arrangements, sound design; Additional contributors: Melentini Toila - trumpet; Seigen Tokuzawa - cello; Thomas Feiner - background vocals; Stelios Romaliadis - flute; Giorgos Varoutas - guitar treatments.

2017 three CD set containing all three of the composer's Oxygene releases. 40 years after the huge international impact of Oxygene, and 20 years from it's second volume Oxygene 7-13, Jean-Michel Jarre is fulfilling a trilogy of albums with Oxygene 3, containing seven newly composed and recorded pieces, consistently titled parts 14-20. His inspiration for the newly added parts on Oxygene 3 was not to go back in time, but to add a sense of "now" to his iconic piece of work. Plunging into the environment of Oxygene with it's highly original dark, moody and at times quite upbeat musical language, Jarre references some of the music from his entire body of work on Oxygene 3. It s a state-of-the-art recording, embracing both classic and modern ways of music production.

Jazz Passengers - Still Life With Trouble CD $14.99

Jethro Tull - An Introduction To CD $8.99

Jethro Tull - Jethro Tull - The String Quartets CD $16.99
A massive treat for Jethro Tull fans and classical aficionados alike: The String Quartets is an album of classic Jethro Tull repertoire, imaginatively arranged for Classical string quartet with the flute, guitar and vocals of songwriter and producer Ian Anderson. For some time, Ian (Jethro Tull frontman and virtuoso flautist) and John O'Hara (keyboard player with Tull and Anderson) had discussed the prospect of a specially conceived album of classic Jethro Tull repertoire orchestrated for a string quartet. Ian and John first saw the Carducci Quartet at the London Symphony Orchestra's LSO St Luke's and, mesmerized by the group's symbiotic relationship which results in their playing as one single musical organism, Ian invited them to take part in the recording. Two violins, a viola and a cello make up that perfect combination of instruments that is the string quartet. Composers such as Beethoven, Bartók and Britten have written for it, and Anderson's music is reborn in this format. With judicious additions of flute, acoustic guitar and mandolin along with a few vocal sections, this album offers Tull fans the opportunity to enjoy familiar melodies and songs within the styling and traditions of Classical Music.

Leimer, K. - Closed System Potentials CD $15.99
Following the RVNG reissues of A Period Of Review and Artificial Dance, Closed System Potentials, recorded in 1979 and originally released in 1980, finds it's way back to CD. In their review of A Period of Review, Pitchfork said, "These pieces most closely evoke the work of Roedelius and Moebius in Cluster: meditative, wistful, lovely, giving off gentle glimmers of light. In trying to think if the closest American corollary for this set, the possibility emerges that Kerry Leimer is one of the lone examples of American kosmische music, that elegant hybrid that falls somewhere between the Velvets-style mesmerism of Can in the early '70s and the placid tones of new age music that arose in the next decade. It's a sound that applies to mid-'70s Cluster, Ash Ra Tempel, Popul Vuh, the second side of Kraftwerk's Autobahn, and others."

Marino, Frank - Juggernaut RM, With Book, UK - Import CD $18.99
Digitally remastered edition of this 1982 album from the legendary guitarist. Includes 16 page full-color booklet, new essay about the making of the album, enhanced artwork and previously unseen photos. For Frank, despite his reputation for endless soloing, the goal was always about crafting songs that had meaning and weight. Nowhere is this better demonstrated than on the Juggernaut album. Recorded and released in 1982, the record showcases Frank in spectacular form, setting out a stall that solidly welds his penchant for blistering hard rock and memorable songs. The title track alone is arguably his greatest triumph, fusing a rock solid riff with a synthetic dusting of melody.

Marino, Frank - Power Of Rock N Roll RM, With Book, UK - Import CD $18.99
Digitally remastered edition of this 1981 album from the legendary guitarist. Includes 16 page full-color booklet, new essay about the making of the album, enhanced artwork and previously unseen photos. Released in 1981 and once again self-produced, The Power Of Rock And Roll was a triumph, seeing Frank setting fire to convention with a collection of hard hitting, no nonsense rock that sounded like a defiant call to arms. It also signaled other major changes; splitting with long time management Leber-Krebs and cementing the appointment of his brother Vince Marino, on rhythm guitar, as a full time member of the group. Sharper, infinitely more focused and taking no prisoners, the eight tracks are veritable firecrackers, making good on his intent to deliver a record that, by all rights, should have catapulted him to sizeable success beyond his cult appeal.

Marino, Frank & Mahogany Rush - Live Bonus Tracks, RM, With Book, UK - Import CD $18.99
Digitally remastered and expanded edition of this live album from the legendary guitarist. Includes two bonus tracks plus 16 page full-color booklet, new essay about the making of the album, enhanced artwork and previously unseen photos. The commonly held belief about Frank Marino, leader of Mahogany Rush, is that he was motivated by the dead spirit of Jimi Hendrix. This was a misquote taken from an early interview which persisted throughout his career and, to a degree, still dogs his activities to this very day. Of course it was pure hokum and a myth utilized to successfully advance his presence in the market place. Harnessing a wealth of strong material the band recorded several dates on their 1977 world tour in order to compile a comprehensive selection of choice cuts. Of course Frank's guitar is the prominent instrument showcasing incredible fluidity and aggression as well as an obvious nod in the style of Jimi Hendrix, but as a power trio the dexterous support of bassist Paul Harwood and drummer Jimmy Ayoub makes the recordings all the more arresting. We've added two bonus tracks taken from the bands performance at the 1978 California Jam II festival held in front of an impressive 350,000 fans.

Marino, Frank & Mahogany Rush - What's Next RM, With Book, UK - Import CD $18.99
Digitally remastered edition of this 1980 album from the legendary guitarist. Includes 16 page full-color booklet, new essay about the making of the album, enhanced artwork and previously unseen photos. Amazingly this was Frank Marino's seventh studio album in almost as many years, an accomplishment made even more impressive by the amount of live work that he had stashed under his belt. Marino had become a notorious road dog, playing everywhere and anywhere, helping to establish him as one of the great showmen of the era. What's Next was an important milestone in Frank's career, not only because the music was getting far more precise but because the band had expanded to a four piece after years working as a power trio.

Old Crow Medicine Show - 50 Years Of Blonde On Blonde CD $11.99
2017 release. 50 Years of Blonde on Blonde was recorded live at the CMA Theater located inside the historic Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum located in Nashville, TN in May 2016. The album was mixed by Grammy Award-winning Ted Hutt and Ryan Mall. "Fifty years is a long time for a place like Nashville, Tennessee. Time rolls on slowly around here like flotsam and jetsam in the muddy Cumberland River. But certain things have accelerated the pace of our city. And certain people have sent the hands of the clock spinning. Bob Dylan is the greatest of these time-bending, paradigm-shifting Nashville cats," says Ketch Secor, the primary vocalist of the Old Crow Medicine Show. "By deciding to record his newly found rock n' roll voice in 1966 Nashville, Bob swung the gates of country music wide open; so wide, in fact, that 50 years later there was still enough of a crack left for Old Crow Medicine Show to sneak it's banjos and fiddles through the gates with string band swagger."

Osi - Blood CD $13.99

Pacific Gas & Electric - Pacific Gas & Electric Holland - Import CD $15.99

Partridge, Andy - Powers UK - Import CD $13.99
Reissue of this 2010 experimental release from the former leader of XTC. CD in jewel case with 12 pages of sleeve notes and illustrations by long-time Ape House sleeve artist Andrew Swainson. A Long time ago, in a library far away, (well, Swindon, actually), a shy schoolboy who loved books but was a slow reader, borrowed three science fiction books per week. He didn't read them. Instead, mesmerized by the covers, he imagined his own stories to match the cover paintings which he stared at intently for hours. Richard M. Powers had been the principal artist, illustrator among illustrators and guide to unleashing Andy Partridge's imagination among the stars and galaxies. Andy's response was to record a sort of soundtrack to the paintings which had been so inspirational to him. The resulting album conjures, via 12 enigmatic pieces - akin to a virtual Musique concrete (with the computer/editing process replacing the more cumbersome scissors/tape method) - a musical accompaniment to the variety of alien landscapes which Powers illustrated so profusely. It also works as a standalone album of experimental music.

Pell, Axel Rudi - The Ballads V CD $15.99
Even if you are not attending the mighty School of Rock, you know one of those bloody emotional moments when the lead guitar sings it's way through the solo and the chorus comes back while you are flying on the wings of heaven. Or something else. We all need a little bit of silence sometimes, just to stop from being part of this crazy world we live in. One of the finest moments on this ballad compilation is the new song "On The Edge Of Our Time", being one of the best ballads he's ever written to date. But the climax of "The Ballads V" is without a doubt the fascinating new song "Love's Holding On". Singer Johnny Gioeli is joined by Bonnie Tyler here! There are 9 more songs, of course, pretty much known from his previous albums (e.g. Neil Young' "Hey Hey My My " and Deep Purple' "Mistreated") which wraps up another classic, dynamic and high-quality Axel Rudi Pell album. As one fan from Israel said on Facebook: "If there was justice in the music business, your ballads would be as big as the Scorpions one."

Schenker, Michael - Fest: Live Tokyo International Forum Hall A with DVD, 3PC CD $21.99
35 years have passed since the legendary MSG concert Live At The Budokan. Like a miracle Michael Schenker returns to Japan with his past original singers from the '80's to celebrate the Michael Schenker Fest with Gary Barden, Graham Bonnet and Robin McAuley at the amazing Tokyo International Forum. 5000 fans witnessed an anthology moment of quintessential hard rock music of the highest caliber. It's a miracle that after all these years, something like this took place with the original band members of MSG. Being able to go back to those days and celebrate the music is an exciting experience for the band, as well as for old and new fans. To being able to re-experience, and for the new audience to get a feel of what it was like, is incredibly enjoyable. For Michael Schenker it was an amazing feeling to have all of his MSG Family from the '80's performing together and especially with Graham Bonnet, who he never got to play any concerts after their Assault Attack album that was originally released in 1982. Fortunately, being able to have the participation of original MSG members such as Gary Barden, Chris Glen and Ted McKenna being part of it, and somehow, to perform with Robin McAuley and Steve Mann again as well, was pretty awesome for Michael Schenker.

2017 release from the veteran British guitarist. Triboluminescence is the follow up recording by Andy Summers to his 2016 release Metal Dog. In this release, Summers once again delves into the deep exotic textures which characterized Metal Dog saying that part of his quest is always to find fresh if not alien sounds that avoid all the standard electric guitar cliches. If Summers takes a position on his music, he proves it with the disparate exotic threads and lyricism heard on the tracks of Triboluminescence - generated from non-standard tunings hammered guitars in tandem, looping, baritone guitar, terz guitar percussion and fretless bass and cello. Summers plays all instruments on the album apart from cello by Artyom Manukian

Sun Ra - Thunder Of The Gods - Wallet CD $14.99
Years after Herman Poole "LeSony'r Ra" Blount "left the planet" he's still trying to reach us, to wake us up and to change our destiny. Sun Ra and the Arkestra weren't a traditional studio band, and every star in the vast galaxy of their discography reflects this. The origins of these records can be hard to pinpoint at times, but when it comes to Thunder Of The Gods, it's a bit easier. "Calling Planet Earth - We'll Wait For You" was discovered on tapes from Ra's, Universe In Blue, believed to be recorded in '71. The raucous title track and "Moonshots Across the Sky" are unearthed from the '66 Strange Strings sessions. Modern Harmonic has once again paired Ra's sonic art with the visual art of "The Father of Modern Space Art," Chesley Bonestell, whose 1952 work "Formation of the Earth's Continents" spralls across the front and back covers.

Sun Ra & His Myth Science Arkestra - A Black Mass CD $16.99
'A Black Mass' is an ultra rare recording of a play by Amiri Baraka (LeRoi Jones), featuring Sun Ra & the Myth-Science Arkestra. Originally released by Jihad Productions on vinyl 1968. It has only been briefly available on CD previously and has been lovingly re-mastered. Baraka was an African-American writer of poetry, drama, fiction, essays and music criticism. Le Sun R (aka Sun Ra) was an American jazz composer, bandleader, piano and synthesizer player, poet and philosopher known for his experimental music, "cosmic philosophy", prolific output, and theatrical performances. As LeRoi Jones wrote, "Sun Ra was only musician in my mind, not just because of his otherworldliness of the tale, but the sensuous outness. I knew Ra, with his (then titled, the name changed continuously) Myth-Science Arhestra, would bring, which I felt give a material life to the text".

Various Artists - Many Faces Of Jimi Hendrix / Various 3PC CD $12.99
2017 triple CD collection celebrating the music of guitar legend Jimi Hendrix. We start Disc One with Hendrix playing with Curtis Knight, a little-known Harlem artist, who had his own band, The Squires, in which Jimi played for a while. Next, we find Jimi playing with rock and roll pioneer Little Richard on the track 'I Do Not Know What You've Got But It's Got Me'. Then, we meet Noel Redding and Mitch Mitchell, bass player and drummer of Experience, the trio with whom Hendrix became a superstar, guided by the hand of producer and manager Chas Chandler. We can hear Mitch Mitchell playing with Bruce Cameron, a fantastic guitarist with a style very reminiscent of Hendrix. We also include in The Many Faces the band Cork, that Noel Redding created along Corky Laing (from Mountain) and with guitarist Eric Schenkman from the Spin Doctors. The second CD of The Many Faces consists of recording sessions prior to Jimi's rise to stardom, some alongside saxophonist Lonnie Youngblood, others with the very same Experience (a brilliant version of the song 'Red House') and also with Little Richard's band. Finally, on CD 3 we immerse ourselves in Jimi's repertoire, his fantastic songs, songs that sometimes have ended up being eclipsed by the fact that he was a guitar God. These recordings are performed by artists who in many cases have Hendrix's music as a starting point for their own career.

They succeed in triumphant fashion on Ballet, the second collaboration between Cuong Vu and Bill Frisell.

Wakeman, Rick - Simply Accoustic with DVD CD $16.99
CD reissue. Here with just a grand piano, Wakeman manages to roll thirty-plus years of music into an entertaining and quite rewarding trip down memory lane in front of a live audience. He gives forth with arrangements of his work from every point in his career, from his time with the Strawbs ("A Glimpse Of Heaven"), his days as a marathon session musician (David Bowie's "Space Oddity," Cat Stevens' "Morning Has Broken"), his various stints with Yes and ABWH (a lovely version of "Wonderous Stories" and a medley of "The Meeting" and "And You And I") and high points from his solo career in the bargain. Wakeman intersperses these performances with stories of how the songs and pieces were written, and he is a natural racounter and howlingly funny at times. If the music thing doesn't work out, he'd make a killing doing stand-up comedy in the Catskills! All told, Simply Acoustic is a concert recording that makes you wish you'd actually been there.

James Gang - James Gang Rides Again SACD $39.99
Limited numbered hybrid SACD from Mobile Fidelity mastered From the original master tapes. Led by future Eagle Joe Walsh, the James Gang establishes a power-trio template for all times on it's 1970 sophomore album. Home to the top-down favorite "Funk #49," Rides Again sparks with a stylistic versatility, hard-rocking edge, and balladic vulnerability united by tight-knit musicianship. The quartet's penchant for crunch-laden boogies and focused jamming pours out on the first half of the record before the band pulls it's trick bag out on the second half and injects keyboards into the stylistically varied mix. From start to finish, Rides Again is a '70s rock classic - and, now, one that at last features first-rate sonics to match the music.
