Spock's Beard/Snow - Live! ....2CD + 2DVD Set $24.99

Spock's Beard featuring Neal Morse and all members past and present perform "Snow" for the first time ever at Morsefest 2016!  At last year's annual Morsefest in Nashville, the dream of every Spock's Beard fan in attendance came true. The band's original lineup, and current members, performed the critically acclaimed double-disc concept album, Snow, in its entirety. It was a moment in time fans never thought they'd ever get a chance to see. Snow was the last album that Neal Morse recorded with the band before quitting in 2002.  Now it's time for fans worldwide of Spock's Beard and Neal Morse to experience that night for themselves. Spock's Beard features Neal Morse (lead vocals, piano, synths, electric and acoustic guitar), Alan Morse (electric guitars, vocals), Ted Leonard (electric and acoustic guitar, vocals), Jimmy Keegan (drums, percussion, vocals), Nick D'Virgilio (drums, percussion, vocals, acoustic guitars), Ryo Okumoto (keyboards--hammond organ, mellotron, jupiter 8, minimoog, vocoder), and Dave Meros (bass, vocals).  "It is difficult for me to know what to say about Snow and Spock's Beard and this whole amazing event that happened in 2016," says Neal Morse. "I guess what I would like to share from my perspective is that this is an album that meant a lot to many people. It touched the hearts and lives and had profound meaning to people all over the world and in a way, it was like the child that myself and the band bore and then put up for adoption. Since we never played it live and I quit the band right after the album was finished, we never got to experience what it meant to others. We never got to see how it lived out in the world. Until now. I think we always knew that we were going to get together and play it at some point. It just needed to happen. But, as you can imagine, there was a lot of pain associated with this album. So, while Nick (D'Virgilio) had brought it up several times over the years, there was always so much going on in our lives that we put it off and said we were too busy. It just never felt like the right time. Or that's the way it seemed anyway." 

Progreport.com called the Morsefest 2016, "...an event for the ages. For any Spock's Beard and Neal Morse fan it was a wish come true but it also showed the power of this Prog community which continues to bring people from all corners of the world together to celebrate great music and make friends. If you were there, it will be a memory for a lifetime, if you weren't, don't miss the next one!"  As Neal Morse concludes, "Obviously, the stars aligned and many prayers were answered as we gathered to play the Snow album in its entirety for the first time at Morsefest 2016. Some brilliant person had the idea to enlist the extreme talents of both Jimmy (Keegan) and Ted (Leonard) which brought a dazzle and musicality that is off the chart. Between that and Rich Mouser's astounding mix, not to mention Thad Kesten's team of amazing video people, this is one of the finest live concert packages of which I have ever been involved."

Nexus explores a completely different side of Virgil's ability, as a writer and keyboard player. His talents were multi-diverse and he always gave his best. We hope that the music just completed will stand as a fitting tribute to his life and legacy." - Steve Howe.

"I want the heavy side of my music to be really heavy, and the soft acoustic stuff that I do to be almost silent and inward. I'm trying to find those outer limits. VuuR's music has the melancholy of The Gathering and certain elements from The Gentle Storm, but it's darker and with fewer folk elements."

Yes/Topographic Drama - Live Across America ....double CD $23.99

Topographic Drama - Live across America highlights the best performances from the 2017 leg of the 28-show tour and mirrors the set list from those concerts. Each night, Yes opened with all six songs from Drama (1980), the band's tenth studio album, which peaked at #2 on the U.K. album chart. Standouts include "Machine Messiah," "Tempus Fugit" and the album's only single "Into the Lens." After Drama, the band shifted gears for songs from two of its best-selling albums: "And You and I" from 1972's Close to the Edge and "Heart of the Sunrise" from 1971's Fragile. Next, the group played the opening and closing tracks of its concept album, Tales from Topographic Oceans. Howe's exceptional guitar work on "The Revealing Science Of God" and White's propulsive drumming on "Ritual" have always been regarded as ground-breaking. The album concludes with two live staples: "Roundabout" from Fragile (1971) and "Starship Trooper" from The Yes Album (1971). Among the world's most influential, ground-breaking, and respected progressive rock bands, Yes was founded in 1968. The Grammy-Award winning recording artists have sold more than 50 million records in a career that has so far spanned six decades.

Neil Young + Promise of the Real/The Visitor ....CD $17.99

When Neil Young entered Shangri La Studio with the band Promise of the Real a few months ago, there were a lot of images and feelings careening around his soul. The country was heading in a direction Young had never seen, even though up until then he thought he'd seen it all. But something different was happening, and it had gotten inside his music. "I'm a Canadian by the way and I love the USA," he sings on the first song "Already Great." The ethos of The Visitor can be summed up in the refrain of "Already Great" where Young insists, "Already great, you're already great. You're the promise land, the helping hand. No wall. No hate. No fascist USA. WHOSE STREET? OUR STREET." From those words, Neil Young was ready to take a musical journey on his new album The Visitor like he had never taken before. It was one where he'd even surprise himself, always the mark of a creative leap. By the end of the recording sessions, he knew he'd made his most diverse album going all the way back to Harvest in 1972, when America was also in the throes of becoming unhinged. Neil Young didn't blink then, and he is not blinking now.

Best known for his evocative solo hits, Parisienne Walkways and Still Got the Blues (live versions feature in this set), and his on/off membership of Thin Lizzy, Gary Moore's solo career comprises over twenty albums. Throughout the 1980s, Gary moved up the rock hierarchy, but turned his back on what he regarded as the empty flash of metal and reverted to his heart music - the blues - where ironically he scored his biggest commercial success through his 1990s and 2000s blues albums. As well as running his own bands, during a successful solo career, Gary mixed with the best that rock and blues could offer, playing live and on record with George Harrison, Jack Bruce, Ginger Baker, Greg Lake, BB King, Albert King, Albert Collins and many others. Gary was also the guitarist many looked up to, not just for the terrifying speed of his fretwork, but for the passion, fire and honesty in his playing.

Tom Rogerson with Brian Eno/Finding Shore ....CD $15.99

Tom Rogerson with Brian Eno/Finding Shore ....CD $15.99

Tom Rogerson's life as an improviser began when, as a toddler, he would clamber up onto his family piano stool and try to emulate his sister's playing. Now releasing his second solo album, a collaboration with Brian Eno, he feels that his musical life has come full circle: "I remember smashing out C Major chords again and again and really loving it. It's the same as what I do now, funnily enough, I've come back to it." After stints playing jazz in New York, a dilapidated Fenland Hotel and in noise rock band Three Trapped Tigers, Rogerson ran into Eno at a gig. Bonding over a love of the countryside of their Suffolk home, the pair entered the studio and worked with The Piano Bar, a device that converted the sound of the piano into midi signals, which were then further manipulated. "It was this classic Eno, almost scientific thing," Rogerson says now. "He always finds a system that can be a source of creativity." The result is an album that uses Eno's magic to pull deep from Rogerson's subconscious to evoke the strange flat landscape of Eastern England, all heathland, military testing sites and estuary mud. "I do totally hear it, I'll listen and think 'oh that sounds like the bells at Woodbridge, that's the birds, the wind rustling in the reeds'," Rogerson says. "I think it permeates my music, and Brian's ambient records. That 'is it organic or is it electronic thing' is so interesting."

Tom Waits/Real Gone [Remixed & Remastered] ....CD $14.99

Tom Waits/Real Gone [Remixed & Remastered] ....CD $14.99

On Real Gone, Tom Waits walks a fraying tightrope. By utterly eliminating one of the cornerstone elements of his sound - keyboards - he has also removed his safety net. With songwriting and production partner Kathleen Brennan, he strips away almost everything conventional from these songs, taking them down to the essences of skeletal rhythms, blasted and guttural blues, razor-cut rural folk music, and the rusty-edge poetry and craft of songwriting itself. Real Gone is like two records in one and the contrasting emotions of each play off of each other perfectly. The up tempo tracks are some of the rawest and most kinetic he's ever laid down, while the ballads are among his most haunting and beautiful, even chilling at times. Taken as a whole, the experience is breathtaking. Tom Waits and Kathleen Brennan have personally remixed and remastered Real Gone from the original master tapes bringing a new sonic brilliance to their 2004 creation.

Eric Johnson/Live from Austin TX ....CD + DVD $17.99

Eric Johnson/Live from Austin TX ....CD + DVD $17.99

Fasten your seatbelts for an extraordinary ride with guitar hero Eric Johnson. This is the performance that fellow guitarists, wannabes and fans have been waiting and dying for since this show first aired in 1989. And for good reason: Johnson's playing has a way of connecting to fans of every guitar style while still eliciting raves from the likes of Carlos Santana, Johnny Winter, Jeff Beck, Stevie Ray Vaughan and even country music legend Chet Atkins. His inspirations are the "3J's:" Jimi Hendrix, Jerry Reed, and Jeff Beck, but his style ranges wide and free throughout the entirety of guitar history while still infusing fresh ideas of his own. A long-time Austin mainstay, he took up guitar at age eleven and had his first professional group at fifteen. In 1974, he defied the musical mainstream by forming Austin's first jazz/rock fusion band, the Electromagnets, and he's been making guitar history ever since.  "Guitar genius" is an easy phrase to throw around, but when it comes to blending fires and finesse, Eric Johnson has it all. - Terry Lickona (producer Austin City Limits)

Nona Hendryx & Gary Lucas/The World of Captain Beefheart ....CD $15.99

Gary Lucas, who made his reputation as an outstanding guitarist with Captain Beefheart (Don Van Vliet), has been determined to keep Don's brilliant and groundbreaking legacy alive by leading tributes to his late friend and mentor for many years - including jazz-rock ensemble Fast 'N' Bulbous, and his own one-man Captain Beefheart Symposium. His latest tribute to the genius of Don Van Vliet is a 5 piece group, The World of Captain Beefheart - featuring Gary Lucas and legendary soul icon Nona Hendryx (Labelle) on vocals. They've just recorded a new studio album that spans the entire length and breadth of Captain Beefheart's groundbreaking catalog, from "Safe as Milk" through "Trout Mask Replica" and beyond. Also along for the wild ride are Fast 'N' Bulbous bassist Jesse Krakow, keyboard whiz Jordan Shapiro (Gods and Monsters), and drummer Richard Dworkin (Alex Chilton). Together they cover the cream of Beefheart's wildly original synthesis of r&b, free jazz, rock and blues which spans his recorded entire output. Gary and Nona first came together a few years ago in a big symphonic Beefheart tribute with The Metropole Orchestra at Amsterdam's Paradiso, produced by Co de Kloet. Now they're together again rocking out in a lean and mean Beefheart machine.

David Gilmour/Live At Pompeii ....double CD $21.99

Live At Pompeii is the project from David Gilmour, and follows his critically acclaimed studio album Rattle that Lock from September of 2015. Following the release of Rattle That Lock, David Gilmour set out to play a series of concerts in historic venues across the world. On July 7th and 8th, 2016, David Gilmour performed two spectacular shows at the legendary Pompeii Amphitheatre in the shadow of Mount Vesuvius 45 years after he first played there for Adrian Maben's classic film Pink Floyd Live at Pompeii. The concerts were the first-ever rock performances played to an audience in the ancient Roman amphitheater, which was built in 90 BC and entombed in ash when Vesuvius erupted in AD 79. David Gilmour is the only performer to play to an audience in the arena since the time of the gladiators, almost 2,000 years ago. Speaking about the Pompeii shows David Gilmour commented 'It's a magical place and coming back and seeing the stage and the arena was quite overwhelming. It's a place of ghosts...' Includes songs from throughout David's career including the title tracks of his two most recent #1 solo albums: Rattle that Lock and On an Island. Also included are other solo and Pink Floyd classics such as 'Wish You Were Here,' 'Comfortably Numb' and 'One of these Days,' the only song that was also performed by the band in 1971. Both concerts also saw extraordinary performances of 'The Great Gig in the Sky' from The Dark Side of the Moon, which David rarely plays as a solo artist.  The Deluxe collector's edition is presented in a box with lift-off lid containing 4 discs in wallets: the concert on 2 x audio CDs; the concert on Blu-ray; bonus Blu-ray with 208 minutes of extra content including 11 songs filmed in concert in stereo and 5.1 surround (5 from South America, 5 from Wroclaw, Poland, with an orchestra, plus Comfortably Numb with Benedict Cumberbatch at London’s Royal Albert Hall), plus 5 documentaries totaling more than 2 hours.

Klaus Schulze about En=Trance: "En=Trance is a pure Schulze record, I made it all on my own. I have to say I only get other musicians when I notice that the song has something missing. For instance if I feel that the song must have a violin I call (Thomas) Kagermann, and if I need a guitar I would always ask Manuel Goettsching or Michael Lucker. With the songs on En=Trance I didn't have the feeling that something was missing. This edition was completely new remastered 2017 by Tom Dams!

Spirit/Time Circle ....import double CD $15.99

Spirit/Time Circle ....import double CD $15.99

Spirit was an American rock band founded in 1967 and based in Los Angeles, California. They are best known for their albums Spirit, The Family that Plays Together, Clear, and Twelve Dreams of Dr. Sardonicus. Time Circle (1968-1972), released in 1991, was a compilation that draws heavily from these four albums. The album also includes some outtakes and versions of songs from then unreleased soundtrack work. At the time that this album was released, Twelve Dreams of Dr. Sardonicus was the only studio album by the original band still available. Several of the outtakes were later included on the 1996 reissues of the first four albums. The remixes of the tracks on The Family that Plays Together (necessitated because the master mix was lost shortly after the album's release) are different from the 1996 re-release.

Gary Wright/Dream Weaver [Deluxe Remastered & Expanded Edition] ....import doubleCD $17.99

Gary Wright/Dream Weaver [Deluxe Remastered & Expanded Edition] ....import doubleCD $17.99

Digitally remastered and expanded edition including two bonus tracks. Includes booklet with 3,500 word essay, enhanced artwork with previously unseen photos and new interview. It's highly unlikely that you'd have wagered that a former member of early '70s hard rock band Spooky Tooth would resurface later that decade with a major selling solo album and an all persuasive, soft rock, hit single 'Dream Weaver.' It was a remarkable achievement and one that elevated Gary Wright to a new audience, allowing him the space to develop a solo career that continues to this day. Born in the USA, Wright moved to the UK and joined Spooky Tooth at the suggestion of Island records Chief Chris Blackwell. It was a match made in heaven but, as these things often pan out, the band's commercial appeal waned, leaving Wright with little choice but to return to the USA and contemplate a solo career. Securing a recording deal with Warner Brothers records, he set about taping a series of demos with just keyboards and a synthesizer. This combination of instruments produced a fascinating sound and one that he continued to pursue on the finished record. The Dream Weaver album was issued in 1975 and spawned the enormously successful us #2 hit single of the same name. It was an instant classic and a song that continues to be heard around the world to this day on radio, TV and in movies. Remarkably, the album also contained a successful follow up hit single, 'Love Is Alive,' a similarly structured track built on synths and a funky backbeat. Dig deeper and you'll find the surprising presence of guitarist Ronnie Montrose flexing his considerable muscle on 'Power of Love.'

Gary Wright/Light of Smiles [Deluxe Remastered & Expanded Edition] ....import CD $17.99

Digitally remastered and expanded edition including two bonus tracks. Includes booklet with 3,500 word essay, enhanced artwork with previously unseen photos and new interview. Gary Wright's place in musical history was undoubtedly secured by the huge international hit single 'Dream Weaver,' a recording that still has an afterlife to this day, selling close to a million copies. Refocusing his attention, he quickly set about recording the follow up album, once again recorded in Los Angeles, and building on the minimalist, layered keyboard style that he had become known for. It also featured a few of his highly regarded touring musicians such as drummer Jim Keltner, keyboardist David Foster and future Toto bassist Steve Porcaro. Partly spiritual in nature the tracks appear to conjoin both lyrically and musically. There is a decidedly progressive rock feel to the presentation, partly driven by precision musicianship and expansive arrangements. Tracks such as 'Watersign,' 'Time Machine' and 'Phantom Writer' are impressive slices of prog with a defined AOR edge, bringing to mind Supertramp, Procol Harum and the Alan Parsons Project.

Arthur Brown is an English rock singer best known for his flamboyant theatrical performances, powerful wide-ranging operatic voice and his number-one hit in the UK Singles Chart and Canada, "Fire," in 1968.

Though Brown has had limited commercial success, he has been a significant influence on a wide range of musicians and artists and due to his operatic vocal style, wild stage persona and concepts, he is considered a pioneer of shock rock and progressive rock and influential on heavy metal music. Now, with his most famous music played live to a rabidly appreciative audience, you, too can see what the fuss is all about.

Phil Manzanera/Corroncho 2 ....CD $16.99

Phil Manzanera/Corroncho 2 ....CD $16.99

Phil Manzanera's early musical accomplishments were Cuban folksongs learnt against the upheaval of the Cuban Revolution. The scenes witnessed at this time made a deep impression on the young Manzanera, impressions which have surfaced in much of his music. Phil, Roxy Music guitarist and record producer and Lucho Brieva, artist and sculptor, release Corroncho 2, the follow-up album to 2010's critically acclaimed Corroncho, on 31 January 2017, Manzanera's 66th birthday. The Spanish speaking concept album tells the story of two hapless compadres from the Caribbean coast of Colombia, "Corronchos," who go on a road trip to the' promised land, specifically Queens, in New York. Mistakenly turning right instead of left from Cartagena on the Caribbean coast, the 13 tracks document their incident-strewn adventures, as they navigate through the countries and cultures of South America, shining a light in their irreverent and humorous way, on the many issues of the Latino man, Love, Death, Politics and Dancing. The album's release coincides with Manzanera's appearance at the Hay Festival in Cartagena.

Gary Husband has been at the forefront of the international jazz scene for many years. He is that rare breed of musician who is equally fluent in expression, and internationally lauded on both drums and keyboard. Even more singular is his ability to bring together the fruits of a career that have included classical training, improvisational versatility and long experience on the pop, rock, funk and blues circuits into a distinctive and influential musical personality. Husband's latest album (his first for Edition), A Meeting of Spirits, is an innovative reinterpretation of the music of legendary guitarist, bandleader and composer John McLaughlin that demonstrates the totality of Husband's multifaceted talent.

Bruce Cockburn/Bone on Bone ....CD $15.99

Bruce Cockburn/Bone on Bone ....CD $15.99

Bone On Bone, Cockburn's 33rd album, arrives with 11 new songs and there's a prevalent urgency and anxious tone to much of the album, which Cockburn attributes to living in America during the Trump era. But, more than anything, Bone on Bone amounts to the deepest expression of Cockburn's spiritual concerns to date. The 12-time Juno winner and Canadian Music Hall of Fame's "Forty Years in the Wilderness" ranks alongside "Pacing the Cage" or "All the Diamonds" as one of Cockburn's most starkly beautiful folk songs. "There have been so many times in my life when an invitation has come from somewhere...the cosmos...the divine...to step out of the familiar into something new. I've found it's best to listen for, and follow these promptings. Produced by Colin Linden, Cockburn's longtime collaborator, the album is built around the musicianship of Cockburn on guitar and the core accompaniment of bassist John Dymond and drummer Gary Craig. Also very much part of the sound is the accordion playing of Cockburn's nephew John Aaron Cockburn and the solos of noted fluegelhorn player Ron Miles (check out his stunning work on the cascading "Mon Chemin," for example).

Seven is the seventh studio album by the Canterbury associated band Soft Machine, released in 1973. The album is the last Softs release with a numbered title and also the last released by Columbia. Mike Ratledge composed a trio of connected tracks for Seven, a mini-suite beginning with the modal 9/8 "Day's Eye," including a solo feature for him to cut loose with his patented fuzz organ tone, bridging through the brief burst of "Bone Fire" to the truly heavy "Tarabos," its bass/keyboard vamp pulling upward and resolving at skewed points along an 18-beat sequence while Jenkins solos wildly with a signal splitter on his horn.

'Live Dates' is the legendary first live album from Wishbone Ash containing songs from their first four studio albums. The album kicks off with three tracks from their album 'Argus' and ends with an epic over 17 minutes version of 'Phoenix.' In the early seventies Wishbone Ash were one of the leading bands in prog-rock, not only with their studio albums but certainly also through their live reputation for being even better on stage than in the studio. They were famous for their dual lead guitars played by Ted Turner and Andy Powell on his famous Gibson Flying V guitar. 'Live Dates,' recorded in the summer of 1973, is remastered and wraps up the best of their classical line-up.

John McLaughlin & 4th Dimension/Live at Ronnie Scott's ....CD $16.99

'Live at Ronnie Scott's' offers the listener a wonderful souvenir of a sold-out, two-night stand at the beloved venue by boundary-shattering guitarist John McLaughlin and the 4th Dimension, recorded in March of 2017. In the 4th Dimension - Ranjit Barot (drums, konokol), Gary Husband (keyboards, drums), and Etienne M'Bappe (bass) - McLaughlin has gathered a band with the technical dexterity and soulful musicality to do ample justice to his vast catalogue. They can follow him anywhere, and together on 'Live @ Ronnie Scott's' McLaughlin and the 4th Dimension explore everything from early Mahavishnu Orchestra classics to compositions from their most recent studio LP, 'Black Light.' Most striking about Live @ Ronnie Scott's is the restraint and fluidity on display: So connected are the band's four members that the interplay approaches telepathic levels, making for powerfully evocative performances without any wasted gestures. Longtime fans will be thrilled to hear favourites like "Vital Transformation" (from Mahavishnu's 1971 Inner Mounting Flame album) and "Miles Beyond" (from 1973's Birds of Fire) re-examined through the lens of the 4th Dimension's unparalleled sensitivity and facility. Hearing such standards alongside recent compositions like "El Hombre Que Sabia" and the moving "Gaza City" serves to demonstrate the breadth and scope of McLaughlin's vision, honed over a career now spanning fifty years.

Jon Lord & Tony Ashton/First of the Big Bands Live ....CD $17.99

Tony Ashton was one of the great, underrated, British rock musicians. Starting out as organist and vocalist with the Liverpool band 'The Remo Four,' he appeared on George Harrison's first solo album and went on to a long standing on/off collaboration with Deep Purple's keyboard player, Jon Lord. In the meantime, he formed a trio with Remo drummer Roy Dyke and bass player Kim Gardener, who had been in The Birds with Rolling Stone's Ronnie Wood. The eponymous trio had a hit single with 'Resurrection Shuffle' and quietly broke up after their third album. In the summer of 1974, Ashton and Lord recorded a beautifully eccentric record called 'First of the Big Bands.' It was a brave career move for them both, mainly because Jon Lord wanted to move away from his signature sound with Deep Purple (neo-classicism played on a Hammond organ with lashings of bravado and flash). He wanted to concentrate more on a sound featuring piano and a brass section, and between them, the two maverick musicians produced a bravely peculiar, but oddly enthralling album. As you can probably guess, from the title of this record, it is a welcome document of what happened when Tony and Jon 'First of the Big Bands' live.

Atomic Rooster/The Devil Hits Back ....import CD $17.99

The Devil Hits Back is a compilation album by Atomic Rooster.

As well as containing a dozen latter-era Atomic Rooster tracks, all it's reissues are rounded out by Atomic Rooster's three Beat-Club appearances, dating from 1971 and 1972.

Captain Beefheart & His Magic Band/Just Got Back from the City ....CD $17.99

Captain Beefheart & His Magic Band/Just Got Back from the City ....CD $17.99

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

Third Ear Band/Spirits ....CD $17.99

Third Ear Band/Spirits ....CD $17.99

The Third Ear Band were one of the most interesting improvisational groups to come out of London in the late '60s. Unlike so many of their peers, they used traditional acoustic instruments rather than electric and electronic ones. Dave Tomlin was interested in free form jazz, and initiated sessions of this music at the London Free School, and later at the UFO club. He was soon joined by drummer and percussionist Glen Sweeney, and the result became known as 'The Giant Sun Trolley.' Later they combined with members of another free improvisational group to become the Third Ear Band, whose first music was recorded with legendary composer and arranger Ron Geesin. Italian writer Luca Ferrari, who is an expert on the Third Ear Band and allied artists, described this record thus: 'Recorded at Tuxedo Club, Piacenza (Italy), on January 14th, 1989, TEB's Spirits is a great live gig in a strange day-off tour date with a rare performance of Dave Tomlin's "Lark Rise" played by a wonderful line-up: Glen Sweeney (hand drums), Mick Carter (electric guitar and effects), Lyn Dobson (flute, sax) and Ursula Smith (violin).

Third Ear Band/Brain Waves ....CD $17.99

Third Ear Band/Brain Waves ....CD $17.99

The Third Ear Band fused traditional and early music with a psychedelic sensibility, and - amongst other things - they produced the soundtrack to Roman Polanski's notoriously nasty version of Shakespeare's MacBeth. They appeared at the Rolling Stones' free concert in Hyde Park in July 1969 and the Isle of Wight festival a month later: two impressively high profile gigs for such a determinedly esoteric band. It is impossible to think of something like that happening these days, mores the pity. The band split up in the early 1970s, but reformed (to everyone's surprise) in the late 80s when, one would have thought, the culture of rampant consumerism under Margaret Thatcher was even less conducive to their weird experimentation than had been the early 1970s. This record was released in 1993 and highlights include "Dance with Dolphins," the very English folk-sounding ten-minute "Water into Wine" and the tribal "Psychedelic Trance Dance." Line-up: (seems that a few of these members play OTHER instruments on other TEB discs) Mick Carter - guitar, Glen Sweeney - percussion, Neil Black - violin and Lyn Dobson - synthesizer, flute & vocal.

Mike Bloomfield/Live at Mccabe's Guitar Workshop January 1 1977 ....CD $15.99

Mike Bloomfield/Live at Mccabe's Guitar Workshop January 1 1977 ....CD $15.99

Mike Bloomfield was one of the great and unique artists of our era. Considered by millions to be America's answer to Eric Clapton, his effect on both musicians and public alike has been no less. A master guitarist, arranger and writer, Bloomfield has the honor of being responsible for turning many millions of white American teenagers and young adults to authentic black blues music over the years. Bloomfield was born in Chicago and by the time he was a teenager he was playing guitar in local rock bands. He soon became enamored with the power and originality of such bluesmen as John Lee Hooker, Muddy Waters and Lightnin' Hopkins and became highly proficient as a blues guitarist and also became one of the most in-demand session musicians in the country. In the mid-1960's Mike Joined the Paul Butterfield Blues Band, one of the most successful blues groups of the sixties. Much of the group's success was due to Bloomfield's superb guitar work, and led to his break with Paul to form his own group, The Electric Flag. The group was quickly signed by Columbia Records and achieved instant super group success. Both critics and public alike found their fresh approach to both blues and rock material electrifying, and their influence on most other musicians cannot be overstated. In spite of great critical and financial success, the group broke up because of ego problems, After the demise of the Flag, Bloomfield teamed up with Al Kooper and Steve Stills for the incredibly successful Super Session, still a staple of most record libraries. Until his death, Bloomfield continued to record both on his own and with other major artists He never lost his love of blues, and continued to be one of America's most popular blues and rock artists, and one of it's most influential, until his untimely death. This album stands as a tribute to one of our great musicians, as Mike performs a selection of original and classic rock and blues material. - Robert Scheri

Sun Ra/Pictures of Infinity ....CD $16.99

Sun Ra/Pictures of Infinity ....CD $16.99

Pictures of Infinity is a live album, originally release in 1968 by the American jazz musician Sun Ra and his Arkestra; one of the recordings authorized and issued during his lifetime. As Lindsay Planer points out, although no precise date is given, these five cuts are thought to have been documented circa 1967-1968 by Sun Ra (piano) and his Arkestra in New York City, where the band was in residence at the time. Planer goes on to say: "There is a mixture of older works as well as newer selections. That said, even the established compositions - most notably the full-throttled reading of "Saturn" that commences the collection are given fresh sonic visages. Tenor saxophonist John Gilmore is particularly potent with his flawless fluidity running melodic yet hard bopping lines over top of the solid rhythm section. He gives a hearty personality to his interjections as they dart in and out of the spiralling mile-a-minute arrangement. Bassist Ronnie Boykins is commanding, especially as his solo emerges out of drummer Nimrod Hunt's rapid-fire timekeeping. "Song of the Sparer" is an exquisite and rarely documented tune that begins with some intricate phrases from Ra before evolving into a languid and practically dirgelike improvisational piece. "Spontaneous Simplicity" is highlighted by some warm and inviting interplay between a flutist - presumably either Danny Davis or Pat Patrick - and Ra, whose strident piano accompaniment is remarkably suited to the earthy nature of the woodwind's ethereal, alternately liberating and plaintive sound. Immediately contrasting the more rural expressions is the aggressive extended free jazz attack heard on "Somewhere There." The bombastic percussion and practically sadistic sax-and-drum onslaught thrash about in an almost definitive example of the sheer power possessed by the Arkestra. The "Outer Spaceways Incorporated" chant concluding this long-player is similar to other versions and remains an affirmative statement juxtaposing an inescapably dissonant introduction with the playful nature of the singalong quality of the verses."

Sun Ra/Continuation ....double CD $21.99

Sun Ra/Continuation ....double CD $21.99

2013 release. An expanded reissue of Sun Ra's Continuation, originally released in 1970.

Loaded with John Gilmore, one of the greatest and rarest slabs of Sun Ra vinyl, on CD for the first time. Recorded on March 10, 1963 at the Choreographer's Workshop in New York City. Remastered from the original tapes.

The Residents & Renaldo and the Loaf/Title in Limbo [Special Edition] ....double CD $23.99

The Residents & Renaldo and the Loaf/Title in Limbo [Special Edition] ....double CD $23.99

OK, we know you all waited for this a very long time, but now the wait is over. We are happy to be able to present you a special 2 disc edition of Title in Limbo including the legendary 4 Daze! Many of you have heard about this legendary recording for a long time now, over 35 years after its recording it is made available to the public for the first time. Title in Limbo is an album that was recorded with The Residents in San Francisco in 1981.The bands played a very experimental jam session together and went back to these recordings 2 years later, in 1983. Title in Limbo finally came out in November of that year on vinyl. 1998 saw the first complete CD release as a numbered limited edition on Ralph America, copies of which are scarce and now collectors' items. But that CD differed from the vinyl in that some tracks had short fade ups applied to them which did not truly reflect the original release. So we are excited for the first time on CD to now offer this album re-mastered with all tracks fully restored to their originally recorded states. The second disc is the legendary 4 Daze recording. Also included is a booklet with rare photographs and of course the lyrics for all the songs.

Performing is the powerful young vibraphonist Sae Hashimoto, along with JACK quartet, Steve Gosling, Shanir Ezra Blumenkranz and Tyshawn Sorey from Zorn’s devoted inner circle.

Ronson, Mick - Beside Bowie: Mick Ronson Story - With DVD, 2PC Blu-Ray $25.99
From Emperor Media Ltd. and acclaimed producer/director Jon Brewer, music icon David Bowie narrates this unprecedented celebration of the life and works of guitar virtuoso Mick Ronson - a rock hero virtually unknown despite his direct contribution and involvement in countless compositions, lyrics and recordings that changed the face of music forever. His humble beginnings in Hull, England underpinned the values and modest, unpretentious personality of Mick Ronson, who worked with the city's council while he pursued his craft with consummate dedication. Soon word of his talent reached David Bowie, who grabbed at the chance to work with Ronson, in what would become a career-long association, alongside collaborations with other greats such as Bob Dylan, Ian Hunter, Lulu and Lou Reed. The Man Who Sold the World, Aladdin Sane, Hunky Dory, The Jean Genie - all were constructed with Ronson on guitar. Sadly in 1993, while working on a solo album, Ronson passed away before receiving the recognition he so richly deserved or before taking that final bow. Now, with unprecedented access to archival backstage footage - never before released - and iconic imagery from superstar photographer Mick Rock, this fascinating and at times controversial special reveals the ultimate authentic chronicle of the career of a cornerstone of rock. Bonus interview footage from Angie Bowie, Rick Wakeman, Glen Matlock, Cherry Vanilla, Ian Hunter, David Stopps and more!

Spock's Beard - Snow - Live - 2 Pack, 2PC Blu-Ray $24.99 -

Zappa, Frank - Summer '82: When Zappa Came To Sicily Blu-Ray $25.99
In an unexpected convergence of art and life, Summer '82 - When Zappa Came to Sicily is a story of two families--Sicilian filmmaker Salvo Cuccia and the children of Sicilian American rock icon Frank Zappa--as they try to reconnect with fathers who died young. The tumultuous summer of 1982 is the playing field on which these parallel stories unfold and ultimately merge. The backdrop is the bloody mafia war that is raging in Sicily, Italy's triumphant win of the World Cup, and Zappa's World Tour, which climaxes with the first ever rock concert in Palermo. Told through the lens of the Italian portion of the tour in a style as eclectic as Zappa's music, the film features rare performance footage and interviews with Dweezil, Moon, Diva and Gail Zappa and Massimo Bassoli, Frank's friend and biographer, who was eyewitness to the events of that summer. The film crescendos in Palermo in an unexpected and emotional homecoming in which all of the seekers reach back though time to connect to something lost: parents, ancestry, homeland, and ultimately a more complete sense of identity.

Marriott, Steve & Packet of Three - Watch Your Step: Final Performances Live 91 - UK - Import, 4PC CD $28.99
This 4CD box set lovingly documents the final musical years of a true legend, a great songwriter, musician, and formidable frontman. Steve Marriott was sadly taken from us prematurely at the age of 44 on the 30th April 1991. Vocalist and guitarist in such great bands as Small Faces and Humble Pie, Steve clearly had so much more to give, as is evidenced here, and this box set attempts to pay respect to the inspirational talent that is Steve Marriott by compiling four of his last ever live shows from his final year with us in 1991. These live sets contain many old favourite Marriott classics such as 'Itchycoo Park', 'All or Nothing', 'Whatcha Gonna Do About It' and 'Big Train Stops at Memphis', live Packet of Three staples, a smattering of rhythm & blues standards, plus a number of Chuck Berry classics in 'Talking 'Bout You' and 'Memphis Tennessee'. This collection of live sets demonstrates the fact that not only was Steve an immense performer throughout his whole career, but that he was sadly taken from us far too early.

Ten Years After - 1967-1974 - UK - Import CD $164.99
10 CD Box Set

Thompson, Richard - Live At Rockpalast - With DVD, 5PC CD $25.99
3 CDs and 2 DVDs of Richard Thompson live in 1983 and 1984. In 1983, Thompson went on tour to promote his current album ''Hand Of Kindness''. For the show on December 12, 1983, at the Hamburg Markthalle the WDR also put up their cameras to record the event for the Rockpalast. The studio crew from the recording sessions of ''Hand Of Kindness'' was also present live. Among them three musicians who stood on stage with Thompson with FAIRPORT CONVENTION more than ten years before: Simon Nicol, Dave Pegg and Dave Mattacks. Nearly seven weeks later, on January 26, 1984 Richard Thompson & Band gave another concert in the French luxury resort Cannes on occasion of MIDEM being recorded by the WDR as well. Gerry Conway, today the drummer with the still active folk rock institution FAIRPORT CONVENTION, replaced Dave Mattacks, Rory McFarlane (bass) came for Dave Pegg who had to go into the studio to record a new album with his band JETHRO TULL. In both concerts it is to be heard how well the musicians know each other and how they have been harmonizing for years. They are building an integrated whole with Richard Thompson. They carry the music of their ''boss'' and give him the lightness and the leeway to fully unfold his potential. Both concerts are an absolute must for every Thompson fan.

Next, the group played the opening and closing tracks of its concept album, Tales From Topographic Oceans (1973).

SACDs

Beck, Jeff - Truth - SACD - $28.99

Dylan, Bob - Highway 61 Revisited SACD-Hybrid $39.99
Limited Mobile Fidelity SACD hybrid pressing. Ranked the fourth-greatest album ever made by Rolling Stone, it's reach, power, and content boggle the mind nearly five decades after it's release. Teeming with organic energy, palpable voltage, and countless textures, the disc faithfully recreates the dimensions, vibes, and events associated with the six days Dylan and Co. Spent at Columbia's Studio A. Everything from the soundstages to dynamics, instrumental separation to balances, resonates with enormous might and insightful perspective.

Head, Murray - Nigel Lived SACD $35.99
Murray Head's Nigel Lived is a groundbreaking classic and one of the boldest, most daring and inventive albums of all time. Recorded by the great recording engineer Phill Brown, Nigel Lived is from the golden era of all-analog recording, a sonic and musical masterpiece that every music lover and audiophile simply must have. In Spring of 1972 Murray Head was just 25, coming off amazing success on the stage and screen, when he recorded his debut album, Nigel Lived. And Nigel isn't just any album, it's an ambitious, experimental album full of great songs that required stunningly diverse recording techniques and instrumentation on every track. There are beautiful acoustic works that draw a straight line to Murray's later albums like 'Ruthie' and 'When You Wake Up In The Morning,' there are straight-up rockers and amazingly innovative tracks like 'Religion' and the sprawling 'Junk.' Nigel's story arc unfolds as a three-act play in which Nigel leaves a small town for the big city, finds love and success before crashing into addiction and despair. The background locations, characters and scenes change sonically throughout as Nigel was a adventurous & pioneering effort in blending studio recording with an incredible array of location recordings captured all over London's West End. In the same way that films today operate on the 'found footage' motif, Murray's ahead-of-it's-time conceptual treatment for Nigel consisted of hand writing a 'diary' for Nigel that was then 'found' by Murray, who put Nigel's life to song. It's a brilliant narrative tool that allowed Murray to weave aspects of his own rich experiences in the whirlwind of late 60s London into the songs. Murray saw great success, making a splash on stage in Hair and on-screen in films like The Family Way and John Schlesinger's avant-garde Sunday Bloody Sunday. And he saw the depths working in a drug-addiction clinic and watching friends disappear into and eventually succumb to heroin.

Various Artists - Progressive Italia 70 / Various - Italy - Import, 15PC CD $72.99
The Italian progressive rock scene of the 70s is one with many different strands and styles – a good deal of which you'll get to experience in this amazing little collection! Italian prog is the stuff of legend – as tight and well-played as the most famous work from the UK at the start of the 70s, but much more obscure overall – as many of the groups never got the kind of record contracts to get them global exposure – which meant that, even back in the day, the movement was only limited to dedicated listeners who could get their hands on obscure imports! A good deal of those classic titles are presented here – in a very cool 15CD package that not only features some of the most well-crafted records from the scene, but also some surprisingly experimental records, and a few left-field choices as well. All albums come as stand-alone CDs, complete with artwork, booklets, and jewel cases – and the package also features a bonus book with notes in Italian. Albums include Storia Di Un Minuto by Premiata Forneria Marconi, Banco Del Muto Soccorso by Banco Del Muto Soccorso, Crac by Area, Caronte by The Trip, Tilt by Arti & Mestieri, Metrodora by Demetrio Stratos, Il Volo by Il Volo, Melos by Cervello, Gudrun by Pierrot Lunaire, Reale Accademia Di Musica by Reale Accademia Di Musica, La Bibbia by Il Rovescio Della Medaglia, Dies Irea by Formula 3, Napoli Centrale by Napoli Centrale, Viaggio by Claudio Rocchi, and Sulle Corde Di Aries

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

They had originally planned to team up with Brian Jones, who had only just been kicked out of the Rolling Stones.

Shortly after the death in 1989 of Atomic Rooster founder member Vincent Crane, it was compiled as a tribute by his widow, Jean, and former bandmate John Du Cann. As well as containing a dozen latter-era Atomic Rooster tracks, all it's reissues are rounded out by Atomic Rooster's three Beat-Club appearances, dating from 1971 and 1972.

Originally known as Canto, the trio of Howe, Curtis and Clarke adopted the name Bodast (and abbreviation of their first names) after a few months. Later joined by Clive Skinner, the band recorded a series of songs at Trident studios in London, produced by Steve Howe's former band mate in Tomorrow, Keith West. Sadly, despite being hailed for their live performances, Bodast failed to see any recordings released during their existence. Over four decades on from the sessions, the tracks recorded by Bodast are fascinating, revealing a phase of Steve Howe's career prior to him joining Yes and enjoying global acclaim. The track "Nether Street" featured a riff later reworked by Steve Howe as the basis of the "Wurm" section of the song "Starship Trooper" recorded by Yes. "Towards Utopia" features the original Keith West produced mixes of the Trident sessions, along with three bonus tracks by Canto recorded for Deep Purple's management company in 1968.

Caligula's Horse - In Contact CD $16.99

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

"There have been so many times in my life when an invitation has come from somewhere... The cosmos... The divine... to step out of the familiar into something new. I've found it's best to listen for and follow these promptings. The song is really about that. You can stay with what you know or you can pack your bag and go where you're called, even if it seems weird - even if you can't see why or where you'll end up." - Bruce Cockburn.

Flock - Truth - The Columbia Recordings 1969-1970 - RM, UK - Import, 2PC CD $21.99
Esoteric Recordings are pleased to announce the release of a new 2CD anthology celebrating the fine American Jazz rock band The Flock. Hailing from Chicago, The Flock was one of the most original groups to emerge on the late 1960s buoyant music scene. Along with their fellow Chicagoans Blood Sweat & Tears and Chicago, The Flock were highly original in their musical approach, successfully fusing jazz, rock, blues and even classical influences. The band recorded three singles in 1966 and 1967 before changing musical direction and recruiting virtuoso electric violinist Jerry Goodman to their ranks. With a line-up of Fred Glickstein (guitar, lead vocals), Jerry Goodman (violin), Jerry Smith (bass), Ron Karpman (drums), Rick Canoff (saxophone), Tom Webb (saxophone) and Frank Posa (trumpet), The Flock came to the attention of manager Aaron Russo, owner of Chicago's famous Kinetic Playground venue.

Foxx, John & Maths - Machine CD $16.99
Directed by York Theatre Royal's associate director Juliet Forster, Neil Duffield's adaptation of E.M. Forster's chilling short story The Machine Stops (1909) explores humanity's increasingly intricate and complex relationship with technology. The acclaimed production, which opened in 2016 and toured again in 2017, features a specially composed soundtrack by John Foxx And The Maths - John Foxx and Benge. This forms much of the music on The Machine, although there are new mixes and some extended material as the pair developed stage music into a fully-fledged album. Described as "eerie", "evocative", and "a triumphant score of chest-crushing anxiety" by The Independent and The Guardian in their stage reviews, the music (created entirely on analog synthesizers and drum machines) is some of the finest the pair have created yet. The Machine's rich atmospheres move from the sinister breathing effects that start on "The Ghost In The Machine" through moments of beauty on "The Other Mother" and ARP Odyssey-soloing "Transworld Travelogue" into an ancient, mythic song on "Memory Oxide" where Foxx further investigates a style that he first explored on his own Cathedral Oceans (1997). Elizabeth Bernholz (Gazelle Twin) provides the high, lilting vocals on "Genetic Hymnal" and the album ends - as does the stage production - with the elegiac theme of "Orphan Waltz".

Only a few songs from each of the band's first three albums are known to exist as multi-tracks, with the rest presumably lost, and it is these nine tracks - plus the previously unreleased pre-debut song 'Freedom's Child' - that have been remixed by Steven Wilson for this very special release. 'Three Piece Suite' includes the songs 'Giant', 'Nothing At All' and 'Why Not' from the first album Giant, 'Pantagruel's Nativity', 'The House, The Street, The Room' from the second album Acquiring The Taste, and 'Schooldays', 'Peel the Paint', 'Mr. Class And Quality' and 'Three Friends' from the album Three Friends. The previously commercially unreleased song 'Freedom's Child' is from the first recording sessions with legendary producer Tony Visconti. The liner notes contain an essay by noted journalist Anil Prasad, in which Gentle Giant's members reflect upon the writing and recording sessions. Furthermore, Steven Wilson and Tony Visconti share their observations about the early days of this unique collection of timeless music from one of progressive rock's most influential bands.

Montrose, Ronnie - 10x10 CD $15.99
2017 release. Before his untimely death in 2012, renowned American rock guitarist Ronnie Montrose began recording an ambitious passion project with bassist Ricky Phillips (Styx, Bad English) and drummer Eric Singer (Kiss, Alice Cooper). The idea was to record 10 songs with 10 different singers and call the album 10X10. Sadly, Montrose was unable to see the album through during his lifetime. Instead, Phillips made it his mission to finish the songs by enlisting a small army of Ronnie's musician friends to record the vocals and the guitar solos for each song, completing the album in recent years. - Phillips says the songs represent some of Montrose's best work. On 10X10, we hear Ronnie at the top of his game. 10x10 features inspired pairings, like Deep Purple singer Glenn Hughes with Def Leppard guitarist Phil Collen ("Still Singin' With The Band") and singer Sammy Hagar with Toto guitarist Steve Lukather ("Color Blind"). Legendary blues guitarist Joe Bonamassa also showcases his guitar talents on the track "The Kingdom's Come Undone" with Ricky Phillips on vocals.

Tangerine Dream - Quantum Gate - UK - Import CD $15.99
Quantum Gate promises an updated, contemporary development of their trademark sound: sequencer-driven electronica covering a wide range of moods and atmospheres from ambient soundscapes to energetic, upbeat moments. The album began as a concept and series of musical sketches by Froese before he passed away in 2015. Remaining band members Thorsten Quaeschning, Ulrich Schnauss and Hoshiko Yamane worked together to realize Edgar's visions and expectations of a conceptual album that attempts to translate quantum physics and philosophy into music. New member Ulrich Schnauss comments: "at the moment hardly any other area of science questions our concept of reality (linearity of time etc.) as profoundly as research in Quantum physics - it's no surprise therefore that Edgar was drawn to these ideas since he had always aimed at reminding listeners of the existence of 'unopened doors'.

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."

Wollo's signature use of shining, consonant chord structures, tender melodic phrasing, and masterful sound design give this release it's adventurous and vibrant character. Possessing a boundless, sonorous and textural character, sometimes rhythmic, sometimes ambient and abstract, these aural landscapes possess a sense of drama, full of feeling and powerfully evocative. These soundscapes were created to complement a story or an event, yet still possess their own self-containing inner life.

2017 archive release from the iconic singer/songwriter. The songs on Hitchhiker were recorded in a single night with the intent of being released as an album. In his memoir Special Deluxe, Young described the session, "It was a complete piece, although I was pretty stony on it, and you can hear it in my performances... I laid down all the songs in a row, pausing only for weed, beer, or coke. Briggs was in the control room, mixing live on his favorite console." Many of the songs surfaced on Young albums American Stars 'n Bars, Decade, Comes a Time, Rust Never Sleeps, Hawks & Doves, and Le Noise, albeit in different forms. Hitchhiker also contains a pair of never-before-released songs: "Hawaii" and "Give Me Strength," which Young has occasionally performed live.

Zodiac - Cosmic Sounds - UK - Import CD $15.99
Digitally remastered edition of this classic 1967 Elektra album conceived by label head Jac Holzman, who claimed that the success of the Doors was a primary inspiration for the project, the Zodiac's Cosmic Sounds is a concept piece based on the twelve signs of the Chaldean astronomical zodiac. It combines the music of electronics pioneer Mort Garson, performed on early Moog synthesizer by Paul Beaver, and the words of Jacques Wilson, which would be delivered in Morrison-esque style by the Iranian-born folk musician, Cyrus Faryar, a man dubbed by Holzman "the Persian minstrel of Barham Boulevard". One of the earliest psychedelic / progressive concept albums, Cosmic Sounds is performed by members of the Wrecking Crew, the loosely affiliated assembly of West Coast musicians, who during the 1960s worked extensively with Brian Wilson, Phil Spector, the Monkees, Simon & Garfunkel; Carol Kaye: bass guitar; Hal Blaine: drums; Bud Shank: flute; Mike Melvoin: keyboards, Emil Richards: exotic percussion. Technicians of the highest pedigree. The producer on the Zodiac sessions was Alex Hassilev, a former member of the Limeliters vocal group.

Zorn, John - Interpretation Of Dreams CD $15.99



SACDs

Asia - Alpha SACD $28.99
Supergroup Asia, featuring bassist/vocalist John Wetton, drummer Carl Palmer, keyboardist Geoff Downes, and guitarist Steve Howe, was the logical successor to their collective bands of the 1970s - Yes, ELP, King Crimson, and The Buggles. The group's eponymous debut album exploded onto the music scene in March of 1982 with several Top 10 singles and sales exceeding 7 million copies. Released in 1983, one year before the departure of Howe, the Mike Stone-produced follow-up Alpha would be the band's last with the classic original line-up. Creative tensions and egos - not to mention the pressure of having to top the best selling album of the previous year - began to takes it's toll on the band. "We had a precious success," remembers Wetton. "We came in at the top, but it was an illusion to think we'd stay there. The band was still finding it's feet as a musical entity."

Dylan, Bob - Freewheelin' Bob Dylan SACD-Hybrid $39.99
Limited Mobile Fidelity SACD hybrid pressing. This is the very finest, most transparent digital stereo edition of The Freewheelin' Bob Dylan ever produced. Never before has the resonance of his nylon guitar strings, fingerpicked notes, shivering harmonica fills, or plainspoken timbre possessed such clarity, openness, body, or realism. Writing and singing with penetrating honesty, observational wit, moral conviction, and scathing emotion, he digs into the madness of war ("Masters of War," "A Hard Rain's A-Gonna Fall"), hypocrisy of segregation ("Oxford Town"), urgency of civil rights and freedom ("Blowin' in the Wind"), and multiple angles of unrequited love ("Girl From the North Country," "Don't Think Twice It's All Right") with a literate astuteness and depth that, nearly 50 years later, still leave audiences slack-jawed. Satire, absurdist humor, and traditional blues also pepper the album, which rests upon graceful melodies and sparse, poignant patterns.

Dylan, Bob - Love and Theft SACD $39.99
Limited Mobile Fidelity SACD hybrid disc. Mastered from the original master tapes. Love And Theft is the 31st studio album rock icon Bob Dylan. It was originally released on September 11, 2001 by Columbia Records. It featured backing by his touring band of the time, with keyboardist Augie Meyers added for the sessions. It peaked at #5 on the Billboard 200. The album continued Dylan's artistic comeback following 1997's Time Out of Mind and was given an even more enthusiastic reception. The title of the album was apparently inspired by historian Eric Lott's book Love & Theft: Blackface Minstrelsy and the American Working Class, which was published in 1993.

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

Spirit - Clear SACD $28.99

Styx - Pieces Of Eight SACD $28.99
Adorned with an evocative cover by the-one-and-only Hipgnosis, 1978's Pieces of Eight served as another hit Styx concept album this time themed around, "not giving up your dreams just for the pursuit of money and material possessions." And like The Grand Illusion before it, the album went triple-platinum, selling more than three million copies in the U.S. alone thanks to the hit singles, "Sing for the Day," "Blue Collar Man (Long Nights)" and "Renegade" - climbing to No. 6 on the Billboard 100 in the process. Pieces of Eight features the full extent of Styx's many talents and maintains it's quality while exploring a lot of different musical styles, all wrapped up in a compelling prog rock veneer.
