February 22, 2017

 

Hi, folks,

Before we get into the newsletter, I want to again pass along some information some of you might find exciting.  For those of you who were fans of Pierre Moerlen's Gong, three key alumni of the band - Hansford Rowe, Benoit Moerlen and Francois Causse - have come together with guitarist Julien Sandiford to form Gong Expresso!  Currently they're working on raising money to fund the new album.  If you'd like to find out more about it, go to http://www.pledgemusic.com/projects/hr3 .  There's only seven days left of their PledgeMusic drive and so far they've met 79% of their goal.


Now back to our regular programming.  Today we're going to continue on with Gary's Stash.  There's plenty still left from the previous offering.  All prices have been dropped a couple more dollars, so get'em now before someone else does!  Everything below can be found at http://www.artist-shop.com/sale.htm along with the Pittsburgh, Anonymous and BB Collections.  As is usual with collection sales there is only one copy of each title below.  So if you see something you want, let me know right away.  If you'd like to order anything you see in today's newsletter, you'll find ordering options at http://www.artist-shop.com/order.htm . Or if you're a regular customer and want to use the info from your last order, feel free to drop me an e-mail with your selections.

 

Gary's Stash

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

Clapton, Eric - Live In San Diego (With Special Guest JJ Cale) Blu-Ray $21.99
Clapton, Eric - Live In San Diego (With Special Guest JJ Cale) DVD $15.99

Cohen, Leonard - Mind Of A Poet DVD $14.99
While hearing Leonard Cohen sing his self-composed songs is one of life's finest experiences, to simply hear the man talk comes a close second. And while Leonard remains one of the best raconteurs in the business, to hear him converse and discuss all manner of topics across more than two hours of interviews with intelligent and sympathetic journalists, is a sheer joy. Never less than entertaining, wise, humorous and enlightening, Cohen is also majestically humble, appropriately self-depreciating and never mean spirited nor arrogant. And whether discussing his years spent meditating in an LA monastery or the wicked theft of his life savings while doing so - or indeed his oft- noted attraction to the opposite sex, a topic much prompted by one female interviewer - this sage-like man speaks with honesty, humour and dignity at all times. This DVD includes over 2 hours of rare filmed interviews with Leonard Cohen from various junctures across his career to date. A truly fascinating film is created from these sessions which all at once provide one of the best and most fascinating documents on this legendary performer.

Vaughan, Stevie Ray - 1984-1989: Lonestar DVD $17.99
In the mid-1970s, when Stevie Ray Vaughan first emerged as a modern blues guitarist with unparalleled ability and passion - skills which distinguished his playing from that of just about all his contemporaries - the blues world he represented had little impact in the mainstream market place. So despite his obvious gifts, he struggled to secure a record deal. But by the time his debut album, 1983's Texas Flood, was finally released, the tide had turned and Stevie Ray not only became an international phenomenon, but was also of paramount importance in the revitalisation of the blues genre. This film traces and reveals The Full, Previously Un-Told Story Of Stevie Ray Vaughan's Glory Years, the period between the release of his debut album and his tragic death in a helicopter crash in 1989. Featuring; rare film footage, exclusive interviews with many close friends and confidantes, contributions from the industry professionals and music writers who documented SRV's career as it unfolded, seldom seen photographs and numerous other features, which together make this program the finest documentary yet on the personal life and career of Stevie Ray during his most fertile and productive era. PLEASE NOTE: This film is the sister feature to Sexy Intellectual's previous documentary, Rise Of A Texas Bluesman - Stevie Ray Vaughan 1954 - 1983

Vaughan, Stevie Ray, Muddy Waters & Howlin' Wolf - Legends Of Blues DVD $15.99

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

Beyond the Fringe - Beyond The Fringe - 2PC CD $21.99
Beyond the Fringe was a British comedy stage revue written and performed by Peter Cook, Dudley Moore, Alan Bennett, and Jonathan Miller. It played in London's West End and then in America, both on tour and on New York's Broadway in the early 1960s. Hugely successful, it is widely regarded as seminal to the rise of satirical comedy in 1960s Britain. The show was conceived in 1960 by an Oxford graduate, Robert Ponsonby, artistic director for the Edinburgh International Festival, with the idea of bringing together the best of revues by the Cambridge Footlights and The Oxford Revue, which had both transferred to Edinburgh for short runs in previous years. John Bassett, a graduate of Wadham College, Oxford, who was Ponsonby's assistant, recommended Dudley Moore, his jazz bandmate and a rising cabaret talent. Moore in turn recommended Alan Bennett, who had had a hit at Edinburgh a few years before. Bassett also chose Jonathan Miller, who had been a Footlights star in 1957. Miller recommended Peter Cook. The majority of the sketches were by Peter Cook and were largely based on material written for other revues. Among the entirely new material were "The End of the World", "TVPM" and "The Great Train Robbery". Peter Cook and Dudley Moore revived some of the sketches on their later television and stage shows, most famously the two-hander "One Leg Too Few". Originally released in an edited form as a single album in 1961, this double CD issue contains for the complete 1961 Show Recorded at the Fortune Theatre in London.

Lost In The Ghost Light is a concept album revolving around the onstage and backstage reflections of a fictional 'classic' Rock musician in the twilight of his career. The album features some stunning solos and harmonically rich compositions that represent Bowness's most musically ambitious work to date. Lyrically, the album addresses how the era of streaming and ageing audiences affects creativity, how a life devoted to music impacts on real/family life, and how idealistic beginnings can become compromised by complacency and the fear of being replaced by younger, more vital artists.

Since then, there have been numerous leavings and joining's, far too many to mention here! Currently, both Randy Bachman and Fred Turner are fronting a revitalized B. T. O.

Captain Beefheart & His Magic Band - Electricity 1967-1968 CD $17.99
Electricity 1967-1968 is a collection of very rare recordings from Don Van Vliet AKA Captain Beefheart. The tracks were recorded live at MIDEM Pop Festival, Cannes Beach, France, at Frank Freeman's Dance Studio, Kidderminster, UK and Allegro Sound Studios, Los Angeles, CA. Track one, "Electricity" (1968 Live) Van Vliet's adaptation of the Howlin'; Wolf vocal-construction device is in full frontal view, as is the evolving Magic Band rhythmic concept and French/Drumbo's incredibly responsive manifestation thereof as he shadows Van Vliet's singing; an outstanding version of one of the most innovative songs in the proto history of avant-rock. "Kandy Korn" (live) is structurally perhaps the most adventurous of the lot, it's interlocking parts peering past any jam-o-philic indulgences at the martial art to come.

Carr, Ian - Old Heartland CD $17.99
Ian Carr (21 April 1933 - 25 February 2009) was a Scottish jazz musician, composer, writer, and educator. Carr performed and recorded with the Rendell-Carr quintet and jazz-rock band Nucleus, and was an associate professor at the Guildhall School of Music and Drama in London. Old Heartland is completely different to what a follower of Ian's workwith Nucleus might expect. It is a suite of four jazz-classical compositions, Northumbrian Sketches, performed with the Manchester String Orchestra (later Kreisler String Orchestra), which has also worked with Michael Nymnan, and three other tunes, performed with old colleagues from Nucleus, Geoff Castle and John Marshall, and others. There's elements of Joseph Haydn, Vaughan William's and Benjamin Britten as Carr builds an indigenous English vocabulary in which to add his knowledge of contemporary jazz, with influences of ECM artists and Miles Davis in his work with Gil Evans. Northumbrian Sketches was commissioned in 1986 by the Bracknell jazz and classical music festivals; and Carr wrote it as a tribute to his late friend, the author Sid Chaplin. It's lyrical trumpet lines are full of melancholy and majesty, soaring above landscapes of strings. It's sophisticated and highly cultured music, serious and concentrated finely into superb performances. The complementary material is beautifully crafted too, gentle and tastefully fitting the conceptual objective of the recording. The bass clarinet and flugelhorn combinations on Full Fathom Five are particularly lush, and Marshall's gentle percussive touches and Mark Wood's acoustic guitar melodies give the title track the rightbalance. A great album for quiet contemplation.

Dauner, Wolfgang & Flo - 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 Düsseldorf 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.

Fuse One - Fuse One / Silk - UK - Import CD $12.99
Digitally remastered two-fer containing a pair of albums on one CD plus bonus tracks. As far as supergroups are concerned, Fuse One is right up there with the likes of Crosby, Stills & Nash, Cream, Emerson Lake & Palmer, Bad Company etc. - the only difference is the genre. Jazz (funk) has it's superstars and when the likes of Stanley Clarke (bass guitar), Eric Gale (lead guitar), Lenny White (drums), Tom Browne (trumpet), John McLaughlin (guitars), Stanley Turrentine (saxophones), Wynton Marsalis (trumpet) and George Benson (guitar) plus many others pool their resources, that is one hell of a band. As producer, Creed Taylor commented Fuse One was conceived as a forum in which major contemporary musicians perform according to their own musical disciplines and interact without the constraints that accompany leader responsibilities. Each player brings in new compositions and ideas. The Fuse One album was released in 1980, and kicks off with a Ronnie Foster composition titled 'Grand Prix' where Stanley Clarke takes the lead, and creates a jazz (funk) classic. Other stand out tracks are John McLaughlin's 'To Whom It May Concern' and 'Taxi Blues' composed by Stanley Clarke. Silk was released one year later in 1981, and features 'In Celebration Of The Human Spirit' and 'Silk' which was the band's only single and the 7" version is included as a bonus track along with the George Benson composed b-side 'Ode To '.

Gosta Berlings Saga - Detta Har Hant CD $18.99
2017 release. The album was recorded during winter 08/09, partly assisted by Mattias Olsson of Änglagĺrd, and represents the band's evolution since the release of the critically acclaimed debut album Tid är Ljud (2006). Whereas the previous album dealt with the interaction between nature and city, Detta Har Hänt focuses on the latter with eight stories about the languishing welfare state, industrialism and love. The songs range from full-blown epic soundscapes via dissonant darkness to minimalistic powerful grooves without compromising when it comes to the strong melodies the band is known for. The basis for the album was recorded live in the band's own studio Pelikaan, which has preserved a genuinely organic and highly energetic feel to the music. Overdubs have been made with instruments such as Mellotron, Minimoog and pump organ to give even more dimensions to the colorful sounds of Gösta Berlings Saga. In conclusion Detta Har Hänt is a gigantic leap forward in all musical aspects, and should not be missed by anyone interested in new music.

Jarre, Jean-Michel - Oxygene Trilogy, 3PC CD $28.99
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 $15.99

Jethro Tull - Stand Up (Steven Wilson Remix) - Remix CD $15.99
Digitally remixed - by Steven Wilson - and remastered edition of this album from the classic British band led by Ian Anderson. Jethro Tull's second album, Stand Up, marked an early turning point for the band with the addition of guitarist Martin Barre along with Ian Anderson s introduction of folk-rock influences to the group's blues-based sound. Released in the summer of 1969, Stand Up rose quickly to the top of the U.K. Albums Chart, and eventually earned gold certification in the U.S. Before recordings for the album began, the band's original guitarist Mick Abrahams resigned because of musical differences with Ian Anderson; Abrahams wanted to stay with the blues rock sound of their 1968 debut, This Was, while Anderson wished to add other musical influences such as folk rock. Mick was replaced by guitarist Martin Barre, who appeared on every Jethro Tull album from this point on. Stand Up represents the first album project on which Anderson was in full control of the music and lyrics.

Ork - 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."

Ramses - Control Me CD $17.99

Rascals - Rascals - Complete Singles As & Bs - 2PC CD $34.99

Residents - Disfigured Night CD $19.99
Over the years, The Residents have been so prolific that it's easy to see that a year could have simply vanished and gone unnoticed. And one did - 1997! In the early to mid 90's, The Residents were quite active in the creation of CD-ROMs, releasing Freak Show, The Ginger Bread Man, and Bad Day on the Midway from 1992-95. So much time was devoted to writing and designing the CD-Roms that, other than some soundtrack music for the game and a short side project, Pollex Christi, no music was recorded in 1996. Having lost so much time on a dead concept, 1997 finally arrived, but the new year was not so happy. For the first time in decades, The Residents had absolutely nothing in the works. 1997 was born dead. And truthfully, the year never got much better, but the group did begin moving in some interesting new directions. Creatively, The Residents saw Pollex Christi as a successful experiment, consequently they decided to follow it up with another highly experimental, classically styled piece. Moving quickly, in the spring of 1997, the group began work on a new 15 min work, Disfigured Night. Soon afterards, inhabiting a position that normally would have been occupied by a string quartet, The Residents performed for a small, but wealthy crowd in San Jose. As the unsuspecting patrons entered the event, the group was seen perched 30 feet above the entrance to the cavernous lobby of software giant Adobe's world headquarters. Needless to say, The Residents hour long set was not quite what the rich nerds expected. Making sure no one missed it, the group performed the set, made up of a mix of prerecorded and live elements - some planned and some spontaneous - four times, and quickly left town.

Schulze, Klaus - Androgyn CD $17.99
Re-Release of Klaus Schulze's Androgyn (originally released 2002 as part of the strictly limited and long exhausted 5CD Boxset Contemporary Works II). The first track on Androgyn has again, like on Another Green Mile, the cello of Wolfgang Tiepold and some odd voice samples added to interesting synth sounds. The long second track has Klaus on electric guitar and for good reason it's called Back To The Future: Klaus plays the guitar with a Gleiteisen, a piece of iron that he used in the cosmic slide guitar technique from old Ash Ra Temple times, 32 years ago. The next four tracks belong together. There's No Mystery has a voice and the adequate and efficient cello again...and of course it has Klaus' famous string accord in the back; you already heard it on Another Green Mile (MIG 01712) and can hear it again on further albums. As Androgyn comes to it's end it gets more rythmic. For the final title This House Full Of Shadows I noticed at first listening: Will be liked by the people. We hear again Wolfgang Tiepold's expert cello. (KDM, 2002)The bonus track A Tiny Violin is a rare beautiful pearl from the 10thCD Adds & Edits of the limited wooden boxset Contemporary Works I. On violin: Thomas Kagelmann. After the successful releases of U.S.O. Privée (MIG 01412) and Another Green Mile (MIG 01712) MIG-Music proudly lifted another nugget of Klaus Schulze. We will continue to discover further gems!

Sun Ra & Arkestra - Secrets Of The Sun CD $16.99
Of this album, Troy Collins writes: 'Marking a transition in it's development between the advanced swing of the early Chicago-era recordings and the increased free-form experimentation of it's New York tenure, this album also reveals the first recorded versions of two Ra standards, "Friendly Galaxy" and "Love in Outer Space." Accessible, yet segueing into vanguard territory, this album highlights a fertile period in the Arkestra's history. Looser and more aggressive than it's Chicago recordings, these pieces find the Arkestra pushing at the limits of harmony and tonality.'

Sun Ra & His Myth Science Arkestra - When Angels Speak Of Love CD $16.99
Digitally remastered edition. Sun Ra was an American jazz composer, bandleader, piano and synthesizer player, poet and philosopher known for his experimental music, "cosmic philosophy", prolific output, and theatrical performances. He was inducted into the Alabama Jazz Hall of Fame in 1979. For much of his career, Ra led "The Arkestra", an ensemble with an ever-changing name and flexible line-up. As John Szwed writes about "When Angels Speak of Love was considered a bizarre record when it was heard even three years later, made more bizarre by extreme echo, horns straining for the shrillest notes possible, rhythms layered, their polyrhythmic effect exaggerated by massive reverberation (which was abruptly turned off and on). 'Next Stop Mars' is the centerpiece of the album, a very long work which opens with a space chant, followed by Allen and Gilmore taking chances on their horns beyond what almost any other musician would dare at that time. Sun Ra played behind them, again relentlessly spinning around a single tonal center with two-handed independence, then rumbling thunderously at the bottom of the keyboard against Boykins's bass, a clangor made heavier by electronic enhancement." In other words, Classic RA and now finally available on CD.

Twenty Sixty Six and Then - Reflections On The Future CD $17.99
In May 1972 Twenty Sixty Six And Then met first time and decided to found a band. Day and night they rehearsed and filed on their sound in their residence in Mannheim. Another journalist at that time: Dominating in their music is a dynamic, which is regulatory in the developing harmonies in the complex structured arrangements. When the musicians sometimes get lost in old hard rock stereotypes they kept enough distance to the sounds, to prove their intents with detailed inserted alienation. In a short way: the rediscovery of a Krautrock origin from the Mannheim-rock scene in the early 70ties. Twenty Sixty Six And Then were the singer Geff Harrison (the only member from the UK), Veit Marvos on organ, Steve Robinson played the second organ, Gagey Mrozeck guitar, Dieter Bauer on bass and Konstantin Heinrich Bommarius on drums. The CD contains the bonus tracks, originally released on the rare and strictly limited double-vinyl-edition re-released in 2002.

Wakeman, Rick & Friends - Gastank - 3PC CD $22.99
Three CD edition. Gastank was an English television show that aired between 1982-1983 on Channel 4. Hosted by Rick Wakeman and Tony Ashton the show featured a mix of interviews with 1970s musicians and impromptu performances where the guest artist would join Rick and Tony with their house band in playing re-arranged versions of their classic songs, or entirely new pieces created for the show. The format was very informal with the setting likened to a bar where Wakeman and Ashton would interview the guests over a drink or two followed by their performance in front of a small studio audience sitting in groups at tables. They would frequently cite the show as an opportunity for musicians from different bands to get the opportunity to work together. During it's run, the show featured guests as diverse as Ian Paice, Rick Parfitt, Steve Hackett, Andy Fairweather Low, John Entwistle, Godley and Creme, Eric Burdon, Suzy Quatro, Eric Burdon and Phil Lynott. Now for the first time on CD, you can cherish all the seminal music performances from Rick, Tony and their guests.

Derringer - Complete Blue Sky Albums 1976-1978 - UK - Import, 5PC CD $25.99
Limited five CD box. This release collects together music made across three short but prolific years, when the band Derringer released three studio albums plus two live albums. Rick Derringer first found fame aged just 17 in 1965, when his band The McCoys had a #1 hit in America with 'Hang On Sloopy', famously knocking The Beatles' 'Yesterday' off the top spot. Subsequently making significant appearances with Edgar Winter and Johnny Winter, as well as Steely Dan and Alice Cooper, and even squeezing in a solo hit with 1973's 'Rock 'N' Roll, Hoochie Koo', before deciding to put together his own band in 1976. Naming the band Derringer, the singer and guitarist was joined by bassist Kenny Aaronson, future Black Sabbath and Dio drummer, Vinny Appice, with the quartet completed by guitarist Danny Johnson. Going for a rockier, harder, less poppy sound than Rick's previous musical excursions, Derringer signed to Blue Sky Records, a subsidiary of Columbia Records, in 1976. This set includes the albums Derringer, Live In Cleveland, Sweet Evil, Derringer Live and If I Weren't So Romantic I'd Shoot You.

Fairport Convention - 5 Classic Albums Vol 2 - UK - Import, 5PC CD $21.99
2017 five CD box set containing a quintet of albums from British folk legends Fairport Convention. This second volume contains five classic studio albums packaged together in a slim-line slipcase. Includes the albums Angel Delight, Babbacombe Lee, Rosie, Nine and Rising For The Moon.

Hawkwind - GWR Years: 1988-1991 - UK - Import, 3PC CD $28.99
Three CD collection. The GWR Years 1988 - 1991 is comprised of all three of Hawkwind's albums originally released by the GWR label between 1988 and 1991 - The Xenon Codex, Space Bandits and Palace Springs. These recordings saw Hawkwind move into the 1990s with a trio of excellent albums recorded by slightly fluctuating line-ups. Alongside Hawkwind Captain Dave Brock and long-time member Harvey Bainbridge, The Xenon Codex would be the last album of the 1980s to feature Huw Lloyd Langton on guitar, whilst bass guitarist Alan Davey would come more to the fore within the band.

Jansch, Bert - Living In The Shadows - 4PC CD $46.99
Four CD set. Signifying a return to form that heralded one of the most prolific periods of his life, this special collection features some of Jansch's finest work. Living In The Shadows includes an extra disc of demos, alternate versions and never-before heard tracks, transferred from Jansch's personal tapes, alongside the three studio albums of the 1990s: The Ornament Tree, When The Circus Comes To Town and Toy Balloon. This trio of works represents quite different facets of Jansch's talent; where Circus is a bluesy, late-night sounding party, Ornament is altogether more subdued, drawing on Maggie Boyle's bodhran, flute and whistles to creative a sound that is nothing if not celtic. Toy Balloon falls somewhere in the middle, with that feeling of intimacy that is so Bert. Despite these apparent contrasts, the unifying element is of course, Jansch's guitar. There is an ease about these albums that suggests a musician that has found himself very at home-"just a simple soul", to quote the man himself. The real draw here for many Jansch fans will be disc four: unreleased tracks (including - let joy be unconfined! - one with John Renbourn), as well as alternative takes of familiar songs from the '90s period. Chosen specifically for their contrast to the studio versions, these tracks are often more stripped-down or without the embellishment typical of the era. Mostly recorded at Bert's home studio, this unheard and unreleased collection, transferred from Bert's own DAT tapes, has a intimate quality that is incredibly moving.

Ashton, Tony & Friends - Live At Abbey Road - With DVD, 2PC CD $22.99
Deluxe two CD + DVD edition of this live release from the British musician. Includes musical appearances from Jon Lord, Ian Paice, Bernie Marsden, Micky Moody, Neil Murray, John Entwhistle, Zak Starkey (Ringo's son), Zoot Money, Chris Barber and others. As you might expect given that it was recorded at Abbey Road, the sound quality is absolutely first rate. The concert itself was a magical event and this release captures the vibe perfectly. It all starts in earnest when Ewan McGregor introduces the main man himself and Tony Ashton and his band perform their set. Following on from the Ashton set we get the reformed version of the classic late 70's / early-80's formation of Whitesnake AKA Company of Snakes (Jon Lord, Ian Paice, Bernie Marsden, Micky Moody, Neil Murray, with Stefan Berggren handling David Coverdale's duties). These guys dish up a set of crowd-pleasing favorites from yesteryear that really give the old aficionado's in the audience exactly what the doctor ordered. Then what happened next would turn an otherwise brilliant night into legendary - Ian Paice, Tony Ashton Jon Lord (Paice, Ashton and Lord) took the stage for the first (and only time) since 1977. This release is a must for all Tony Ashton fans (obviously), as well as any fans of the original Whitesnake and Paice Ashton Lord. Fans of Deep Purple should enjoy this and general fans of British rock/jazz/blues should appreciate it.

Bowie, David - David Live (2005 Mix) - Remastered, 2PC CD $17.99
Digitally remastered two CD edition. David Live is David Bowie's first official live album, originally released by RCA Records in 1974. The album was recorded in July of that year, on the initial leg of Bowie's US Diamond Dogs Tour, at the Tower Theater in Upper Darby, PA, a suburb of Philadelphia. The album catches Bowie in transition from the Ziggy Stardust/Aladdin Sane glam-rock era of his career to the 'plastic soul' of Young Americans. While the cover featured a picture of Bowie in his latest soul threads - baggy trouser suit complete with shoulder pads and braces from October 1974 - the music was recorded in July of that year when he was showcasing his two most recent studio albums of original material, Diamond Dogs and Aladdin Sane, as well as selected favorites from Ziggy Stardust and earlier.

Bowie, David - Diamond Dogs - Remastered CD $13.99
Digitally remastered edition. Diamond Dogs is the eighth studio album by rock icon David Bowie, released on 24 May 1974 on RCA Records. Thematically, it was a marriage of the novel Nineteen Eighty-Four by George Orwell and Bowie's own glam-tinged vision of a post-apocalyptic world. Bowie had wanted to make a theatrical production of Orwell's book and began writing material after completing sessions for his 1973 album Pin Ups, but the author's estate denied the rights. The songs wound up on the second half of Diamond Dogs instead where, as the titles indicated, the Nineteen Eighty-Four theme was prominent.

Bowie, David - Live Nassau Coliseum '76 - 2PC CD $17.99
Two CD edition. Reissue of this live set from the rock icon originally released as part of the 2010 Special Edition reissue of Station To Station Recorded live at the Nassau Coliseum Uniondale, NY, U.S.A., 23rd March, 1976 during his Isolar Tour 1976 in support of Station to Station.

Bowie, David - Station To Station - Remastered CD $13.99
Digitally remastered edition. Station to Station is the tenth studio album by rock legend David Bowie, released by RCA Records in 1976. Commonly regarded as one of his most significant works, Station To Station was the vehicle for his performance persona, the Thin White Duke. Musically, Station to Station was a transitional album for Bowie, developing the funk and soul music of his previous release, Young Americans, while presenting a new direction towards synthesizers and motorik rhythms that was influenced by German electronic bands such as Neu! And Kraftwerk. Blending funk and krautrock, romantic balladry and occultism, Station To Station has been described as "simultaneously one of Bowie's most accessible albums and his most impenetrable". Preceded by the single "Golden Years", it made the top five in both the UK and US charts.

Bowie, David - Young Americans - Remastered CD $13.99
Digitally remastered edition. Young Americans is the ninth studio album by rock icon David Bowie, released on 7 March 1975 by RCA Records. The album marked a departure from the glam rock style of Bowie's previous albums, instead showcasing his mid-1970s interest in African-American soul and R&B music. Initial recording sessions for Young Americans took place in Philadelphia with producer Tony Visconti and a variety of musicians, including guitarist Carlos Alomar, to become one of Bowie's most frequent collaborators, and singer Luther Vandross. Bowie drew influence from the sound of "local dance halls", which were blaring with "lush strings, sliding hi-hat whispers, and swanky R&B rhythms of Philadelphia Soul." Later sessions took place in New York, and included contributions from John Lennon. Bowie would call the album's sound "plastic soul", describing it as "the squashed remains of ethnic music as it survives in the age of muzak rock, written and sung by a white limey".

Byrds - Boston Tea Party - Canada - Import CD $33.99

Chicago - Chicago II (Steven Wilson Remix) - Remix CD $15.99
Digitally remixed - by Steven Wilson - and remastered version of this 1970 release. For the first time, a stereo remix from the 16-track multi-track tapes made it possible for Steven Wilson to bring out elements that were muffled or submerged in the mix. The result is a new stereo version of Chicago II that boasts clearness, punch and definition that it didn't have before. Chicago II yielded some of the group's most enduring hits, which came from Pankow's suite "Ballet For A Girl In Buchannon," emulating the form of the great classical composers from a pop perspective. The album peaked at #4 on the Billboard charts. With the success of Chicago II, radio went back and discovered hits on the earlier Chicago Transit Authority album.

Delaney & Bonnie & Friends - Motel Shot - Expanded Version CD $19.99
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!

East of Eden - New Leaf CD $17.99
Prog Temple present a reissue of East of Eden's New Leaf, originally released in 1971. East of Eden had an unexpected top ten UK hit with "Jig-A-Jig" in early 1971. By that time they had undergone various changes in personnel and musical approach, though they were still led by violinist Dave Arbus (who guested on The Who's "Baba O'Riley" the same year). New Leaf was originally issued that November and found the band in fine form with a mixture of progressive and more laidback material. It makes a welcome return to CD here, together with background notes and images.

Giltrap, Gordon - Last Of England - UK - Import CD $17.99
2017 release. The Last Of England is an innovative album that crosses several styles from prog to folk rock to pop to classical in the unique style that Gordon has developed and honed over his career. Gordon Giltrap became a household name with his crossover and breakthrough in 1978 and over the past 40 years he has played his music in pretty much every kind of venue from the grandeur of Birmingham's Symphony Hall to small halls where he relishes the challenge of where audiences are "up close and intimate". Gordon has teamed up with keyboard player/producer Paul Ward who has a sizeable number of music production credits under his belt including a Christmas animation with David Jason and a drama mini series starring Martin Kemp, to produce his new album.

Goldberg, Barry - Street Man / Blast From My Pasts - UK - Import CD $13.99

Barry Goldberg'S career began in the early '60s playing with the likes of Howlin Wolf and Muddy Waters. In 1965 he played keyboards for Bob Dylan at the now legendary Newport Jazz Festival when Dylan went electric. In 1967, along with Mike Bloomfield he formed The Electric Flag.

Hayward, Charles & Gigi Masin - Les Nouvelles Musiques De Chambre 2 - Remastered, Reissue CD $16.99
Digitally remastered edition. Following the reissue of the entire recorded output of South London-based experimental act This Heat and it's successor, Camberwell Now, Modern Classics Recordings holds the lens up to a special split album created by one of the driving forces behind those groups - drummer Charles Hayward - in collaboration with Italian musician Gigi Masin, whose looping, rhythmic, electronic compositions have seen his cult following grow in his four decades as a recording artist. Originally released on Belgium's Sub Rosa label in 1989, Les Nouvelles Musiques de Chambre Volume 2 is a split LP on which Masin's eight tracks occupy side A and Charles Hayward's long-form piece (at 21 minutes long), "Thames Water Authority", occupies side B. Geography may have separated the two artists, who each recorded their pieces in isolation from the other, but there's a commonality to their approach. Previously, Masin had released the inspired 1986 album Wind, while Hayward's music had long been influenced by the landscape and society of London and the UK. For this album, the label challenged the two musicians to write about the waterways of their respective cities, Venice and London. For Masin, that meant describing the human interactions related to the Italian city's famous landmarks. "Places, faces, memories... that's what most of the people love to find when they travel to Venice - some kind of magic that's deep in the city," he writes in the new liner notes accompanying this re-release. For Hayward, it meant describing the physicality of water, the "densities and energies" as he puts it, and the politics of it too. Writes Hayward: "Water was being privatized at the time, the profit margin had been factored in, cost-cutting was implicit, people were being poisoned. Water was a political thing; it still is."

IQ - Wake: Expanded Edition - UK - Import CD $20.99
Digitally remastered and expanded edition. The Wake is the third studio album by the British neo-progressive rock band IQ and was released in 1985. It entered the UK album chart on 22 June 1985. It is the only album by IQ to enter the UK album chart. The cover art is by lead singer Peter Nicholls. Most of the characters in the image are original, but the central character is based on Rae Dawn Chong wearing clay face (and body) paint as Ika in the film Quest for Fire (1981). However, according to Nicholls, many of the band's fans misinterpreted this as a self-portrait, since he wore extensive stage makeup at the time.

Jansch, Bert - Live In Australia CD $24.99
Digitally remastered edition. There is something quite special about a live album - provided you can get over the envy at not having been present(!) It can sound a lot better than the gig itself without the risk of one's toes being trodden or a shower of a fellow reveler's beer. Certainly a Bert Jansch gig was a treat however you experienced it, especially when he was at the top of his game, as captured on Downunder: Live In Australia. Eschewing the familiar stalwarts of previous live sets, this memorable recording saw Jansch debut two new (at the time) songs; 'Downunder' and 'My Donald', as well as 'Little Max' which never had a studio outing (but will feature among the recently discovered home recordings in Earth's 2017 Living In The Shadows collection). There is a warmth about this recording which echoes that of Live at The 12 Bar, recorded three years before. It's mostly just Bert and his guitar, with the welcome addition of intuitively placed flourishes of bass and percussion. This ambience is heightened by Brian Pyle's sensitive remastering, bringing a real intimacy to this enduring collection of songs.

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.

Lee, Albert - Black Claw & Country Fever CD $16.99
2017 collection from the British guitarist. This was originally a German release with a collection of late-'60s material from Albert Lee's groups Black Claw and Country Fever. This release finally sheds some light on this era in Alberts history. As the Black Claw and Country Fever sessions have always been shrouded by apocrypha and mystery. There were two bands, with the same members who went by both names. The only difference between them in 1969 was the Country Fever vocalist was Albert Lee, and the Black Crow vocalist was Chas Hodges. To make matters more confusing there was another Country Fever in England in 1969, and Lee played with them in live settings. While some of this gets ironed out by the liner notes, two things are certain: the first is that Lee played guitar and/or sang on everything here and that all of the material with the exception of his two solo singles - the title track and a cover of Bob Dylan's "Too Much of Nothing" - was recorded in 1969. As for the music itself, there are a hell of a lot of Dylan covers here, and they were all recorded just after Dylan himself released them: "Lay Lady Lay," "Tonight I'll Be Staying Here With You," and a great cover of the Dylan/Richard Manuel classic "Tears of Rage." The Band is also referenced outside of this cut by the inclusion of a cover of "Across the Great Divide." Other covers include tough, rollicking reads of "Six Days on the Road" and "Rocky Top.", all highly sought after. The production on this CD sounds contemporary still and the integrity of the performances wears as well or better than the Byrds' attempts at country-rock and still astonishes with it's sheer verve and virtuosity. For anyone interested in hard country and alt-country, this is an essential addition to the collection.

Leimer, K. - Grey Catalog CD $16.99
2015 release. The Grey Catalog departs from Leimer's typical obsessions with understatement and homogeneity to range freely across rhythmic, melodic and disassembled forms. Incorporating percussion, electric guitar and bass as well as found sound, digital and analog synthesis and sampled instruments, The Grey Catalog spins off multiple intimations of musical forms. Compiled over a two-year period, as diverse as the pieces are, they are also related by a shared generative technique and a shared library of voices and processing. Track selection for the final 15 was made from more than 30 pieces, and curated with the input of Matthew Werth, Paul Dickow, Greg Davis and Ron Schepper. The result is an album of highly personal music, restless and shifting forms, with melodic passages drawn over sets of self- regulating sources and shaped by chance.

Leimer, K. - Permissions CD $16.99
2012 release. Permissions is somewhat of a collaboration with Taylor Deupree, given that the 12k head is credited with "additional voices, post-production, edit, mix, and mastering." The detail isn't insignificant, either, as Permissions largely collapses whatever stylistic differences might normally separate 12k and Palace of Lights recordings. Arranged into concise song-like structures, the material exemplifies the concentration on fluttering micro-sound textures, electro-acoustic sounds, and field recordings that's shared by the two creators and often captured on a typical 12k release. Listed sans titles on the CD cover as simply Permissions 01-16, the settings function like snapshots that cumulatively provide an in-depth portrait of Leimer's range. The mood is generally laid-back, meditative, and explorative, but the elements drawn upon are not only pastoral in nature as industrial sounds surface, too. Despite their brevity, the pieces are often striking, such as the fourteenth, which gracefully augments a series of percussion accents with a rising ambient wave, and the sixteenth, which finds minute guitar plucks resonating against a crackling mass. Permissions offers a compelling document of Leimer's artistry.

Lord, Jon - Before I Forget: Expanded Version - Expanded Version, UK - Import CD $17.99
Digitally remastered and expanded edition. Before I Forget was originally released on Harvest Records in June 1982, when Jon Lord was moonlighting from tinkling the ivories in Whitesnake. Originally making his mark with the Artwoods and then playing keyboards with Deep Purple, Lord also enjoyed a series of significant side projects. Following Deep Purple's split in 1976, Lord joined Whitesnake for their 1978 debut Trouble. Before I Forget features an impressive cast of supporting musicians, including Whitesnake's Bernie Marsden and Neil Murray on guitar and bass respectively, drumming legends Ian Paice (Deep Purple and Whitesnake), Cozy Powell (Jeff Beck, Rainbow, Whitesnake, MSG & Black Sabbath) and Simon Philips (Judas Priest, Jeff Beck, MSG, Mike Oldfield and Toto). They're joined by the singing talents of Vicky and Sam Brown as well as Elmer Gantry, and topped off with appearances from Boz Burrell, Simon Kirke and Mick Ralphs courtesy of Bad Company. The original eight track album is augmented by the 7" edit of the single 'Bach Onto This' plus the b-side 'Going Home', as well as an outtake from the album, 'Ravel's Pavane'. Booklet contains contemporary photos from the release of the album and liner notes from bassist Neil Murray.

Moebius - Musik Fur Metropolis CD $17.99
Dieter Moebius (1944-2015) was one of the most important protagonists of avant-garde electronic music in Germany. He was a founding member of Kluster/Cluster (with Conrad Schnitzer and Hans-Joachim Roedelius) and Harmonia (with Michael Rother and Hans-Joachim Roedelius) and worked with several artists such as Brian Eno, Conny Plank, Mayo Thompson, Hellmut Hattler, Asmus Tietchens, Mani Neumeier, Arno Steffen, Jürgen Engler, Jean Hervé Peron, Zappi Diermaier, and Chris Karrer. In 2012, Dieter Moebius was invited to perform music to Fritz Lang's legendary silent film Metropolis (1927). For this purpose, he produced pre-arranged tracks and samples to be treated with effects and combined during live improvisation according to the dramaturgical setting of the film. His impressive work reveals it's full power and depth in combination with the images from the film. It was his plan to create an album-length version of this music for release. Unfortunately, Dieter Moebius passed away on July 20, 2015 and was not able to complete the project. With the help and support of Dieter Moebius's widow Irene and two longtime musical partners, Tim Story and Jon Leidecker, the Berlin musician Jonas Förster finished the remaining work and completed the production.

Pinhas, Richard - Reverse CD $17.99
Richard Pinhas, leader of French space-rock pioneers Heldon in the '70s, has been prolific since returning to the form in the '90s. He has collaborate with Merzbow, Yoshida Tatsuya, Oren Ambarchi, Barry Cleveland, and Wolf Eyes. "Changes in my life really influenced this record," Richard Pinhas tells of his new album Reverse. "The wife of a friend of mine offered to read my Tarot cards... I don't believe in it - I am very materialist, not financially but in my philosophy - so it was very strange that in the year that followed I lost my two parents, broke up with my girlfriend, lost my flat, and moved to Nantes. So the album was done in this confusion, in this chaotic state of having lost all these things." Reverse's dark experimental noise and long repetitive tracks have an intimidating first impression. But listening to the whole 50 minutes leaves one feeling purified. Pinhas even says this album "fixed" and "resurrected" him: "It was a healing process for me to make this album. To get rid of all the negativity that occupied my brain." The main process of the album production was one of construction, with Pinhas and Oren Ambarchi (guitars, "dronz") forming the skeleton. After the initial sessions in Paris, they threw out everything except their own parts and then started searching for "the right parts. Not a drummer, but the drummer, not a bass guitarist, but the bass guitarist." He enlisted the talents of Arthur Narcy (drums), Florian Tatar (bass) along with Masami Akita (analog synths), his son Duncan Nilson-Pinhas (digital synths), and William Winant (percussion). Reverse reflects Pinhas's keen interest in Kabbalah. "Ketter" is an unknowable realm and the music reflects this. We catch traces of elements traversing the spectrum while the whole retains it's own mystery. Pinhas's immediately recognizable tone is tempered by Narcy's unique drumming style. "End" reflects the "reverse" of the album title, as sounds double back in on themselves whilst Narcy, frantic on the cymbals, pounds the drums themselves with military precision. "Nefesh" is the first level of the soul, the track's percolating sounds depicting such a pneumatic birth. "V2" brings to mind both Thomas Pynchon's Gravity's Rainbow (1973) and David Bowie. It sounds like the aftermath of an enormous futuristic electrical malfunction still lingering over a vast cityscape. Cover art by Yann LeGendre.

Possibly the thing in the world that you never expected to happen, but luckily you were wrong: Klanggalerie are proud to present you the brand new album by Renaldo & The Loaf. 30 years after The Elbow is Taboo, Renaldo & Ted The Loaf have created another fabulous record. 13 songs in classic RATL style with an incredible cover by the wonderful Poxodd. All the RATL trademark sounds are there, but of course technology has not passed unnoticed, so there is a 2016 approach to the music, too. This is what the band say: Olleh! Hard to believe almost 30 years have passed since Elbow Is Taboo but finally we have decided it's about time for a brand new album. So... (surprise!).... Gurdy Hurding is soon to be released by Klanggalerie . With a wonderful cover design and artwork by Poxodd, the collection of 13 tracks is scheduled to be released on October 25th.

Riley, Terry - Rainbow In Cologne - 2PC CD $27.99
Minimalist composer Terry Riley premiered his work 'In C' in 1964, a big influence on minimalism in contemporary composition and on subsequent works by composers like Philip Glass, Steve Reich and John Adams. 1967's 'A Rainbow In Curved Air' and its companion piece 'Poppy Nogood And The Phantom Band' - both mixing repetition, electronics and tape-manipulation - were often performed in marathon, trance-inducing performances, and Riley was regarded a cult musician in avantgarde rock music circles.

Roach, Steve - Spiral Revelation CD $16.99
The sound of life, interconnected and unfurling. The spiral - a visual symbol of eternity - is a reoccurring metaphoric theme in Steve Roach's pioneering electronic work. Interpreted into musical form, these six spiraling sonic experiences offer a living activation that connects with a sense of the infinite. Roach's long history and love of analog sequencer-based styles reveal a continuing, evolving awakening within Spiral Revelation's 63 minutes. Using only analog and hardware instruments to focus the mind's ear upon a filigree of intricate patterns woven with a direct hands-on approach, the artist sculpts and caresses sound into being in real time. An emotional through-line brings life to these pieces as the unfurling of time's windings connects to the vivid present and illuminates with anticipation a life-affirming future. A masterful expression of an artist who has infused his soul into the art form of electronic music.

RPWL - Plays Pink Floyd's The Man & The Journey - With DVD, 2PC CD $20.99
Deluxe CD/DVD live release from the German prog rock band. For more than eighteen years RPWL have been an important element of the global artrock scene now and they have long become an inevitable presence on the stages of the world. For their 2015/2016 History tour, RPWL have come up with something very special: Pink Floyd's legendary first concept show of 1969 was entitled The Man And The Journey. It is a true classic that, however, never managed to make it's way onto a sound carrier. RPWL have now revived that show - in the inimitable way that made RPWL famous themselves. But that's only the first part of the story: RPWL bring along a brand new live release that contains the very The Man And The Journey show, filmed and recorded during a performance at de Cacaofabriek in Helmond, Netherlands. The recording showcases a band in top form that brings the unorthodox set to life with playful lightness. RPWL take the audience on a trip through a human's life. From getting up in the morning, going to work, all the way to nightmares and a lot more: in the first part of the show the band lays out the regular course of a person's day. The second part, though, consists of the dreamlike spiritual contemplation of all the things that happened in the first part. In the process the musical implementation proves extremely imaginative: during "Work" all kinds of utensils create sounds - even a toolbox is made to come to life musically. On songs like "Nightmare" - the song that later became famous as "Cymbaline" - the band amazes with fascinating ensemble playing. The improvised solos do not only show the individual virtuosity of the respective band member in breathtaking manner but they also demonstrate the degree of ease with which the band manages to master the atmospheric, dynamic and sound-related hurdles hidden in this extraordinary example of psychedelic music. The magnificent and perfectly embedded visuals further enhance the artistic experience: they beautifully accompany the band as well as the audience on this journey through the early works of Pink Floyd.

Weather Report - Sweetnighter - UK - Import CD $17.99

White, Snowy - Released CD $16.99
2017 release from the veteran rock guitarist. Since the late 1960s, Snowy and his characteristic guitar-playing have made their mark on tasteful blues rock. Whether as a member of Thin Lizzy (on the albums Chinatown and Renegade), working with Peter Green (Fleetwood Mac), as an indispensable tour musician for Pink Floyd and later Roger Waters, or as a highly-respected solo artist, Snowy has always remained true to his love for excellent, handmade music. Over a period of two years, Snowy worked on Released at home in his studio. Mostly on his own... for the first time in his long and distinguished career. The result - 13 tracks that move between blues and rock, and show off his elegant guitar style which has enthralled fans the world over. If you're talking beautiful guitar tones, nuances and mature articulation, then that is Snowy's guitar-playing down to a T. The opening track, the instrumental 'Opening Peace', gives a nod to one of Snowy's great idols: "Every guitarist is influenced by someone, and in my case it was Peter Green. The association works perfectly, and the track is airy and atmospheric". The album however is not just "happy go lucky". White has seen and experienced a lot over the course of his eventful life, and this is reflected in the thoughtful 'Wrong Side Of The Tracks' and 'It's Always Love-That Breaks Your Heart' or the almost nine minutes of 'Out Of Control', in which Snowy gives himself the time and space to express his emotions. For 'Blues On A Borrowed Guitar', Snowy rang his old pals Kuma Harada (bass), Max Middleton (keys) and Jeff Allen (drums) and recorded the song in a spontaneous session - on a borrowed guitar, naturally. His White Flames colleagues - Juan van Emmerloot (drums) and Walter Latupeirissa (bass) - joined him on a second session in Holland, resulting in the two tracks 'Life Full Of Lonely' and 'Everything-It's Alright'. And everything is alright for Snowy White. An unassuming gentleman who is happy with his life and his career - even if he never quite received the adulation other guitarists with his skills enjoyed. Released is a mature, beautifully balanced and multi-facetted album by a true master of his art.

Sourced from the BBC Archives from three sessions on 25 November 1975, 29 April 1976 and 30 September 1976.  With lead singer Elmer Gantry of Velvet Opera fame and former Curved Air guitarist Kirby forming a dynamic front line, Stretch was always a band with great power and potential. They were one of the hottest 'live circuit' bands born out of the fury of the 1970s rock scene. Armed with powerful songs and fronted by top class performers, Stretch epitomised the best of the UK's touring and recording outfits in an era when great 'live' rock ruled.  They released a succession of fine albums that helped launch their career, but one of their great strengths were their 'live' shows, and where better to showcase their talents than at the BBC, recorded by some of the world's finest engineers?

Tohpati Ethnomission/Mata Hati ....CD $16.99

Tohpati Ethnomission/Mata Hati ....CD $16.99

For those of you who haven't forgotten Tohpati's electrifying emergence as a freshman bandleader in 2010 - catapulting onto the global stage with the critically acclaimed initial offering of Tohpati Ethnomission, "Save The Planet" - "Mata Hati" will come as a most welcomed follow-up.  Although six years is a lengthy gap between recordings, it is obvious that the players involved have been doing anything but resting. On the contrary, the proceedings are highlighted by a vibrant, cohesive group dynamic where powerful individual performances are subtlety interwoven into the exotic fabrics of its nine acute, ambitious and amazingly diverse musical tapestries. The power and authority of its improvisational content doesn't steal the show, but works as a perfect compliment to the ingenious underlying framework; this is truly a group effort, and a most potent delivery.  Featuring all the six-string acrobatics one would expect from a guitarist of Tohpati's considerable scope and creative brilliance, equally on display here is his mastery of western harmony and his uncanny melodic sense as both a player and a composer. Tohpati Ethnomission rocks with authority; they slither through the grass, unnoticed; they provide enticing glimpses of a rich, mystical music culture, begging to be further revealed ... and they dance on air.  Besides being one of Indonesia's most well known and celebrated guitarists, Tohpati is also one of its busiest session men. In a career which has seen him work as both a band leader and support player for many of his country's most celebrated pop, rock and jazz artists - in addition to seven albums with simakDialog (spanning more than 20 years), and three previous marquee projects for MoonJune - his chameleon-like ability to tailor his playing to suit a variety of diverse styles has always served him well. But on this particular outing, he reveals even further depths of both his dexterity and his creative genius.  This potent, engaging set features masterful work by veteran Indo Hardjodikoro (bass guitar), Diki Suwarjiki (suling bamboo flute and tarompet (Indonesian clarinet)), and is propelled by the flowing rhythmic combination of Endang Ramdan (kendang percussion) and; Demas Narawangsa (drums). The opening tune, "Janger," also features the Czech Symphony Orchestra, conducted by Michaela Ruzickova.  This is music which transcends boundaries, genre and expectations, capturing some of Tohpati's finest, most profound musical statements to date - this is one you certainly won't want to miss!

Wingfield Reuter Stavi & Sirkis/The Stone House ....CD $16.99

Wingfield Reuter Stavi & Sirkis/The Stone House ....CD $16.99

Occasionally, records are released which are an instant game changer: albums so profoundly innovative and compelling in their conception, construction and delivery that they are immediately essential. "The Stone House" sessions is just such a release. And it was recorded live in the studio with no overdubs and completely improvised, with no music written down or rehearsed.  The album features two of today's most original, ingenious and decidedly "risk taking" electric guitar proponents, easily among the instrument's most vital new voices - the UK's Mark Wingfield (Jane Chapman; solo artist, and; one half of the long-running guitar duo, with acoustic maestro, Kevin Kastning), and Germany's Markus Reuter (Stick Men; The Crimson ProjeKct; Centrozoon). Each, in their own unique way, has been stretching the bounds of the tonal and texutral limitations of the instrument, and, in the process, has respectively developed their own individual techniques, stylistic approaches and idiosyncratic vocabularies.  Accompanied by the sure-footed foundational tandem of the Israeli-born UK transplants, bassist Yaron Stavi (David Gilmour, Phil Manzanera, Robert Wyatt, Richard Galliano) and drummer Asaf Sirkis (Tim Garland, Mark Wingfield, Nicolas Meier) - a familiar pair, who by all appearances are more than capable of making most anything groove infectious and in perfect cadence - the album incorporates many of the elements which have drawn listeners to progressive music for decades. Not only is the album often a canvas hosting a grand experiment in spontaneous group interaction, but it is also an exploration into the tonal and textural possibilities of all the instruments involved. The resulting picture which takes shape is one where the whole is much greater than the sum of its profound parts, and emotion, above all, emerges victorious.  There is a pervasive sort of "thumb your nose at convention" corporate approach employed by the quartet through every turn, as the music alternately builds, floats suspensefully, resolves violently ... speaking fluently; interjecting, suddenly; setting flight on a whim, with complete abandon. Seldom has recorded music, of any genre, achieved the level of emotional candidness and intimacy with the moment that is captured here. The unit embraces free jazz, ambient, psychedelic, trance, rock, fusion, and more - producing a music so brilliant, fresh, honest and uniquely original that it truly defies categorization.  With all participants in peak form - at their most unpretentious and uninhibited best - The Stone House ranks as one of the most adventurous, intuitive, high-stakes gambles the genre has ever witnessed. These kind of moments just aren't supposed to happen in the confines of a studio. This is one bet that pays huge dividends ... prepare to be blown away!

Tim Blake/Crystal Machine [Remastered & Expanded Edition] ....import CD Price TBA

Esoteric Recordings is pleased to announce the release of a newly re-mastered edition of the classic 1977 ambient masterpiece "Crystal Machine" 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.  After departing Gong in 1975 he teamed up with French lighting designer Patrice Warrener to form Crystal Machine, pioneering the use of lasers and synthesisers in a live setting.  Blake's debut album, "Crystal Machine," was originally released in 1977 on the French experimental label Egg and featured two pieces recorded live in the UK and in France.  Now regarded as a truly pioneering work, this edition of "Crystal Machine" has been newly remastered and includes three bonus tracks. 'Surf' was recorded in 1976 at Chateau d'Herouville studios in France and issued as a very rare single under the pseudonym Saratoga Space Messengers. The reissue also includes both sides of the rare Spanish single 'Synthese Intemporel' as bonus tracks.  The booklet features a new essay and fully restores the original album artwork.

Esoteric Recordings is pleased to announce the release of a newly re-mastered edition of the classic 1978 ambient masterpiece "Blake's New Jerusalem" by Tim Blake.

Fuse One/Fuse One + Silk ....import CD $12.99

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

In his notes for the original release, Bill explained the original recordings thus; "Between the years 1988 and 1992 my life underwent some severe changes ... both emotional and financial. During that time I used my home studios to create sketches of songs for possible development with a potential band. The band, for various and nefarious reasons, never materialised. What you will hear is the raw stuff of dreams, instant song writing with a vengeance."  "My Secret Studio - Volume One" has now become a highly regarded collection of songs in the prolific discography of Bill Nelson. Long out of print, this Cocteau Discs re-mastered limited edition presents these wonderful albums once again, restoring the original artwork in the collection in a clamshell boxed set.

Jody Grind/One Step On [Remastered & Expanded Edition] ....import CD $19.99

Esoteric Recordings are pleased to announce the release of a newly re-mastered and expanded edition of the highly collectable and legendary 1969 album "One Step On" by Jody Grind.  Formed in December 1968, by organist Tim Hinkley, Jody Grind was a powerful trio influenced by the dominance of such notable keyboard led bands as The Nice, Vincent Crane's work with The Crazy World of Arthur Brown and Traffic. Hinkley formed the first version of the band with guitarist Ivan Zagni and drummer Martin Harriman.  In June 1969 the band signed to Transatlantic Records (a UK independent label more widely associated with folk music who were seeking to develop an "underground" roster) with drummer Barry Wilson replacing Martin Harriman. Released in October 1969, the album was well received by the UK music press, and although failing to chart, "One Step On" was full of musical invention and is a true "lost" gem from the heady days of British progressive / underground rock.   The album was dominated by the side - long suite, "One Step On," which ended with an incendiary version of the Rolling Stones classic 'Paint it Black' as its last movement.  By the beginning of 1970, Jody Grind had settled to a new line up of Tim Hinkley, guitarist and vocalist Bernie Holland and drummer Pete Gavin, who recorded the excellent album "Far Canal" (also issued by Esoteric Recordings).  This Esoteric Recordings edition has been newly remastered from the original tapes and features two bonus tracks.

Esoteric Recordings are pleased to announce the release of a newly re-mastered and expanded edition of the highly collectable and legendary 1970 album "Far Canal" by Jody Grind.  By the beginning of 1970, Jody Grind had settled to a new line up of organist Tim Hinkley, guitarist and vocalist Bernie Holland and drummer Pete Gavin. Recorded in the early months of 1970, the band's second album, "Far Canal" was a fine work. The quality of material such as 'We've Had It,' 'Jump Bed Jed' and 'Bath Sister' was outstanding. Another highlight was the excellent Hammond organ led environmental protest "Plastic Shit" (recorded at The Roundhouse at the beginning of the year). Augmented by other fine material such as 'Vegetable Oblivion,' 'Red Worms and Lice' and 'Ballad for Bridget' (featuring Hinkley on vibraphone), "Far Canal" is a true "lost" gem from the heady days of British progressive / underground rock.  This Esoteric Recordings edition has been newly remastered from the original tapes and features a bonus track of a rare European mono single version of 'Paint it Black.'

Dave Swarbrick/It Suits Me Well: The Transatlantic Recordings 1976-1983 ....import double CD $21.99

Dave Swarbrick/It Suits Me Well: The Transatlantic Recordings 1976-1983 ....import double CD $21.99

From Esoteric distributor Cherry Red, It Suits Me Well by Dave Swarbrick assembles all four albums across two CDs, remastered, with new sleeve-notes by noted folk historian Colin Harper, drawing from contemporaneous Swarbrick interviews.  From the dawn of the 1960s up until his death earlier this year, Dave Swarbrick was, according to Ashley Hutchings, "the most influential British fiddle player bar none," whose presence loomed over the English folk scene for many years. His style has been copied or developed by many folk fiddlers both in the UK and around the world.  Having played with The Ian Campbell Folk Group across the early 1960s, and collaborated with Martin Carthy on several duo albums, Swarb - to use his nickname - joined Fairport Convention and became an integral part of their classic albums such as Liege & Lief, at the vanguard of the late 60s electric folk rock scene. He remained with the Fairports until their dissolution in 1979 while also playing very selectively as a session musician.  In 1976, Dave struck out on his own with the first of a string of six solo albums indulging his love of traditional music - a style of music his day-job band Fairport Convention had been moving away from at that point - helped by many respected guest musicians. Four of these largely instrumental albums are assembled on this new 2-CD, representing the totality of his solo work for the legendary folk imprint Transatlantic. His first two albums were simply entitled Swarbrick and Swarbrick 2: four tracks appear here for the first time ever on CD.   After two further LPs for a Scandinavian label, Swarb returned to the Transatlantic fold for Smiddyburn, issued in 1981 on the company's more contemporary Logo imprint. The fourth album to be included here is Flittin,' funded by Transatlantic but licensed out to a third party label, Spindrift, in 1983. Both albums were recorded in one set of sessions and are notable for featuring between them a clutch of performances by a one-off reunion of the legendary 1970 Full House Fairport line-up: Swarbrick, Richard Thompson, Simon Nicol, Dave Pegg, Dave Mattacks.  It Suits Me Well assembles all four albums across two CDs, remastered, with new sleeve-notes by noted folk historian Colin Harper, drawing from contemporaneous Swarbrick interviews.

Mick Softley/Any Mother Doesn't Grumble ....import CD $15.99

Mick Softley/Any Mother Doesn't Grumble ....import CD $15.99

From Esoteric distributor Cherry Red, Mick Softley's 1972 album released for the first time on CD.  Born in 1941 in South Woodford, Essex, Mick Softley was at the forefront of the folk revival scene of the early 1960s.  Mick helped Donovan with guitar-picking styles when they were both involved with the folk club in The Cock pub in St Albans. Later, Donovan would record two of Mick's songs 'The War Drags On' and 'Goldwatch Blues.'  Recorded at The Manor in Oxfordshire and at Sound Techniques, Chelsea, musicians included Jerry Donahue (Fotheringay / Fairport Convention), Gerry Conway (Fotheringay), Pat Donaldson (Fotheringay), Barry de Souza (Curved Air) and Lyn Dobson (Manfred Mann / Soft Machine).  Produced by Tony Cox, talented keyboard player who played with Sandy Denny and Mike Heron.  "Disc and Music Echo" magazine probably captured the essence of this unique recording most succinctly when they reviewed the album and stated that "listening to it, one almost feels an intruder into the man's soul."  Includes a comprehensive liner note.

Uriah Heep/Words in the Distance 1994-1998 ....import triple CD $22.99

Uriah Heep/Words in the Distance 1994-1998 ....import triple CD $22.99

From Esoteric distributor Cherry Red, Words in the Distance: 1994-1998 collects together three mid-90s classics from progressive heavy rock legends Uriah Heep, when the line-up comprised of founder member Mick Box on guitar, long-time Heep drummer Lee Kerslake, Phil Lanzon on keyboards, fronted by lead vocalist Bernie Shaw and completed by former Spider From Mars, the late Trevor Bolder, on bass.  Kicking off with "Sea of Light," Heep's 19th album, the cover art was created by legendary designer Roger Dean, who had previously painted the LP jackets for the classic Uriah Heep albums "Demons and Wizards" (1972) and "The Magician's Birthday" (1972). This version now features the bonus tracks, 'Sail the Rivers' and 'She Still Calls His Name' plus a single edit of 'Dream On.'  CD 2 was originally recorded in concert in Koln, Germany for broadcast on German radio in 1994 whilst the band were supporting the release of the "Sea of Light" album. Their fourth official live album, the cover was painted by Bloodstock festival founder Paul Gregory, who had also designed sleeves for Saxon, among many other heavy metal classics. This version now features the two studio bonus tracks 'Sail the Rivers' and 'Across the Miles' (Radio Version). It also includes unique live versions of Uriah Heep favourites 'Rainbow Demon,' 'The Wizard,' 'Gypsy' and arguably their biggest hit, 'Easy Livin'.'  Originally released in September 1998, "Sonic Origami" on CD3 was the 20th album since 1969 by this British heavy progressive rock institution. The album kicks off with the song 'Between Two Worlds,' a track dedicated to (sadly departed) former Heep members Gary Thain and David Byron. This version now features the bonus track 'Heartless Land' (Edited Version).  Each of these remastered albums feature an essay from Classic Rock and Metal Hammer's Malcolm Dome based on interviews with the band.

Leviathan/Leviathan: The Legendary Lost Elektra Album ....import CD $19.99

Leviathan/Leviathan: The Legendary Lost Elektra Album ....import CD $19.99

From Esoteric distributor Cherry Red, Although briefly available on limited edition vinyl a few years ago, Leviathan is the long-awaited, first-ever CD release of one of the legendary aborted projects of the late 1960s British psych/prog scene.  Signed to the prestigious Elektra label in early 1969, Brighton-based band Mike Stuart Span changed their name to Leviathan before issuing a trio of singles for their new paymasters. However, the release of their intended debut album was cancelled at the eleventh hour by label president Jac Holzman - a crushing blow that led to the break-up of the band.   Although briefly available on limited edition vinyl a few years ago, Leviathan is the long-awaited, first-ever CD release of one of the legendary aborted projects of the late 1960s British psych/prog scene.  Taken from the original Elektra master tapes, this Grapefruit package adds three non-LP tracks, including a rare remix of 'Remember The Times' that was only issued at the time in Australia.  With a lavish sixteen-page booklet that tells the band's story and includes some priceless period photos and memorabilia, this release is the final, tantalising missing piece in the Mike Stuart Span/Leviathan jigsaw.  In addition to belatedly satisfying the band's many admirers, it is also an essential purchase for anyone who has more than a passing interest in the late Sixties British rock scene.

Elf ft. Ronnie James Dio/Carolina County Ball ....import CD $15.99

Elf ft. Ronnie James Dio/Carolina County Ball ....import CD $15.99

From Esoteric distributor Cherry Red, this version of Carolina County Ball by Elf ft. Ronnie James Dio features a brand new and extensive liner note by Classic Rock and Metal Hammer's Malcolm Dome, based on new interviews conducted with producer Roger Glover, photographer Fin Costello, and Elf bandmates Mickey Lee Soule and David "Rock" Feinstein.  As a singer, songwriter and performer, Ronnie James Dio made game-changing, genre-defining music with Rainbow, Black Sabbath and his own band, Dio. But not everyone will know that prior to 1975's Ritchie Blackmore's Rainbow debut, Ronnie had been part of his own rock band "Elf" for three LPs during the first half of the 1970s.  Founded by Ronnie on bass guitar as well as lead vocals, and going by his birth name Padavona, he was originally joined by his guitarist cousin David "Rock" Feinstein (later of The Rods), and future, fellow Rainbow members Mickey Lee Soule on piano and Gary Driscoll on drums.  Coming to the attention of Epic Records in the States, Elf's 1972 debut was co-produced by none other than Deep Purple's bassist Roger Glover and drummer Ian Paice, then the hottest rock property on either side of the Atlantic.  Produced by Roger Glover alone, the band signed to Deep Purple's own Purple Records imprint for their second album, "Carolina County Ball" (known as "LA 59" outside of the UK), and took to the road supporting Deep Purple on their 1974 "Burn" tour.  Among the nine originals penned by Ronnie with keyboard player Mickey Lee Soule, is tellingly a song called... 'Rainbow.'

Elf ft. Ronnie James Dio/Trying to Burn the Sun ....import CD $15.99

From Esoteric distributor Cherry Red, this version of Trying to Burn the Sun by Elf ft. Ronnie James Dio features a brand new and extensive liner note by Classic Rock and Metal Hammer's Malcolm Dome, based on new interviews conducted with producer Roger Glover, photographer Fin Costello, and Elf bandmates Mickey Lee Soule and Mark Nauseef.   Originally formed by singing bass guitarist Ronnie James Dio in 1967, as the psychedelic sounding Electric Elves, shortened to the Elves, they settled on the more straightforward "Elf" in 1972. After discovering them in their native New York, Deep Purple's Roger Glover and Ian Paice took them into the studio to record their eponymous debut for Epic Records.  Switching to Deep Purple's own in-house record label "Purple Records" for 1974's "Carolina County Ball," they followed it up with third LP, "Trying to Burn the Sun" in 1975.  Both albums feature a collection of originals penned by Ronnie with Elf pianist Mickey Lee Soule, and both produced by Roger Glover alone.  Glover was evidently impressed with Ronnie's skills as a singer, inviting him to appear on the 1974 album, "The Butterfly Ball and the Grasshopper's Feast," plus hit single, 'Love Is All' (also to be reissued on Purple Records).  For those expecting to hear the hard rock and heavy metal that made Dio famous in Rainbow, Black Sabbath and Dio might be surprised by the more laid-back, Stonesy rock 'n' roll of Elf, but Ritchie Blackmore, dissatisfied with the funky direction Deep Purple had taken with "Stormbringer," was sufficiently impressed to base his new "solo" band, Rainbow, using four of Elf's five members. "Trying to Burn the Sun" was released in June 1975, by which time Elf had all but split up, as the debut Ritchie Blackmore's Rainbow LP was readied for an August release.

The Avengers/Everyone's Gonna Wonder: Complete Singles...PLUS ....import CD $19.99

From Esoteric distributor Cherry Red, The Avengers new CD compilation collects all of their singles for the first time and combines them with the best of their album tracks, all re-mastered from the original tapes for the first time.  The members of The Avengers (from New Zealand) were hand-picked by their manager Ken Cooper in early 1966 - to be the resident band at his new club in Wellington, New Zealand.  After signing with HMV Records in early 1967, and their first single came from an itinerant songwriter Chris Malcom who made up a song during an evening performance in front of an HMV A&R man. By the end of that week Chris and the group had recorded 'Everyone's Gonna Wonder,' which was released in October 1967 and stormed into the National Top 20.  The Avengers' harmony pop-psych sound soon got them noticed around the world, and 'Everyone's Gonna Wonder' was released in the UK on Parlophone and Jubilee in the USA where Billboard reviewed it as a 'Hit Pick.'  Legendary Australian singer- songwriter Brian Cadd (then with The Groop) predicated that "the Australian public is demanding a change and this must come. I think that The Avengers from New Zealand will be this change, their musical ability is exceptional."  The group spent 1967-69 chalking up hit records while extensively touring, leaving behind eight singles and three albums.   The Avengers new CD compilation collects all of their singles for the first time and combines them with the best of their album tracks, all re-mastered from the original tapes for the first time.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Eric Gales/Middle of the Road ....CD $16.99

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

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

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

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

Neil Young/Peace Trail ....CD $17.99

Neil Young/Peace Trail ....CD $17.99

Peace Trail features all new songs that Young wrote since the release of his album Earth, this past June. This new album is primarily acoustic and reflects an intimate, sparse approach to each of the ten songs within:  "Neil Young matches the fire in his belly to the poetry from his pen for one of the most gripping outings of his long career. This riveting collection, a spare acoustic-electric hybrid, seethes with righteous indignation over a plethora of social and political injustices, but also soothes with deeply felt empathy for those on the receiving end of iniquity." -- Los Angeles Times / Randy Lewis.  Peace Trail was recorded at Rick Rubin's Shangri-la Studios and features Young on vocals and guitar, Jim Keltner on drums, and Paul Bushnell on bass. It was produced by Young and John Hanlon, mixed by John Hanlon.  Most recently Young previewed five songs from the album during his performances during the Desert Trip Festival, in Indio, CA. last week which both Rolling Stone and Entertainment Weekly summed up as simply "explosive." "Neil slashed and bashed at his guitar, the sound intense and nearly out of control." - Rolling Stone.  The Los Angeles Times called Young's performance "intensely powerful," "furious" and concluded, "combining passion, energy and stinging content, Young served up a deeply rewarding performance."

Grateful Dead/The Grateful Dead (50th Anniversary Deluxe Edition) ....double CD $18.99

grateful.jpg (15466 bytes)

The Greatful Dead 50th Anniversary Deluxe 2-CD Set includes the original album remastered as well as the full unreleased show from P.N.E. Garden Auditorium, Vancouver, BC, Canada on July 29th, 1966. Also includes four additional tracks from the subsequent night at same venue.  Rock's longest, strangest trip, Grateful Dead, was the psychedelic era's most beloved musical ambassadors as well as its most enduring survivors. They spread their message of peace, love, and mind-expansion across the globe throughout three decades. The group had popular music's most fervent and celebrated fan following - the Dead Heads, whose numbers and devotion were legendary in their own right. Grateful Dead was the ultimate cult band, creating a self-styled universe all their own. The Dead became superstars solely on their own terms as tie-dyed pied pipers whose epic, free-form live shows were rites of passage for an extended family of listeners who knew no cultural boundaries. (via AllMusic)

The Band/The Last Waltz (40th Anniversary Edition) ....double CD $18.99
The Band/The Last Waltz (40th Anniversary Deluxe Edition) ....4 CD + Blu-Ray $59.99

The Band/The Last Waltz (40th Anniversary Edition) ....double CD $18.99

Original soundtrack with newly remastered audio from the original master tapes on two CDs and a deluxe four CD + Blu-ray edition. This 40th Anniversary Deluxe Edition of the original soundtrack has 54 tracks, including the entire concert, as well as rehearsals and outtakes. Original soundtrack to the critically acclaimed concert film. The Last Waltz was a concert by The Band, held on Thanksgiving Day, November 25, 1976, at Winterland Ballroom in San Francisco. The Last Waltz was advertised as the Band.'s farewell concert appearance, and the concert saw the Band joined by more than a dozen special guests, including Bob Dylan, Paul Butterfield, Neil Young, Emmylou Harris, Ringo Starr, Ronnie Hawkins, Dr. John, Joni Mitchell, Van Morrison, Muddy Waters, Ronnie Wood, Neil Diamond, Bobby Charles, The Staple Singers, and Eric Clapton. The Band, more than any other group, put rock and roll back in touch with it's roots. With their ageless songs and solid grasp of musical idioms, the Band reached across the decades, making connections for a generation that was, as an era of violent cultural schisms wound down, in desperate search of them. They projected a sense of community in the turbulent late '60s and early '70s - a time when the fabric of community in the United States was fraying. Guitarist Robbie Robertson drew from history in his evocative, cinematic story-songs, and the vocal triumvirate of bassist Rick Danko, drummer Levon Helm and keyboardist Richard Manuel joined in rustic harmony and traded lines in rich, conversational exchanges. Multi-instrumentalist Garth Hudson provided musical coloration in period styles that evoked everything from rural carnivals of the early 20th century to rock and roll revues of the '50s.

John Cale/Fragments of a Rainy Season ....double CD $16.99

John Cale/Fragments of a Rainy Season ....double CD $16.99

Fragments of a Rainy Season is the the first live John Cale album to feature him performing solo and "unplugged" - before that term became a mid-'90s buzzword. In contrast to the jaundiced punk truculence of Sabotage/Live (1979) or Even Cowgirls Get the Blues (1986), Fragments gives us Cale at his most melodic and moving, a mellowed and certainly a soberer man in a Yamamoto jacket and a lopsided haircut running through a selection of his prettiest songs, including his seminal take on Leonard Cohen's 'Hallelujah'.  The album features versions of 'Paris 1919,' 'Dying on the Vine,' 'Chinese Envoy,' cover versions of the Elvis classic 'Heartbreak Hotel' and the aforementioned Leonard Cohen, and a suite of Dylan Thomas' works 'On a Wedding Anniversary,' 'Lie Still, Sleep Becalmed' and 'Do Not Go Gentle into that Good Night.'   Fragments of a Rainy Season is available for the first time on CD and LP in 20+ years. This 2xCD package is the only physical format to contain the bonus tracks, comprised of recordings taken from live shows during the Fragments era. The 2xCD also contains a 24 page CD booklet.

Yoko Ono/Plastic Ono Band ....CD $15.99

Yoko Ono/Plastic Ono Band ....CD $15.99

This long-overdue reissue of Yoko Ono's seminal, but massively under-appreciated Plastic Ono Band has all the makings of a classic rock nostalgia trip: Ono, John Lennon, Ringo Starr, Klaus Voorman and free-jazz legend Ornette Coleman. All the pieces are here to stir up a dangerous amount of nostalgia. But once the needle drops, the record achieves something exactly perpendicular to nostalgia.  Released in 1971, the album not only influenced the approach of other musicians for decades, it also sounds absolutely modern 44 years out, eternally fresh despite the forward march of time.  Yoko Ono/Plastic Ono Band not only predicted the intersection of the avant-garde and rock that would take place in the second half of that decade, the album would sound right at home at where that intersection is happening today.

John Lennon & Yoko Ono/Unfinished Music No. 1: Two Virgins ....CD $15.99

John Lennon & Yoko Ono/Unfinished Music No. 1: Two Virgins ....CD $15.99

Turns out the very sound of falling in love is just as abstract, subjective and loopy as the concept itself. Yoko Ono and John Lennon are two of history's greatest lovers and Two Virgins is the document of the pair falling in love in real time. The album is a curious and amazing suite recorded over one weekend in Spring 1968 at Lennon's Kenwood home: Distant conversations; comedic role playing and footsteps; laughter, birdcalls and plunking piano lines; silly songs and space; tape delay stretching shrieks, bass rumbles and moans to the moon and back again.  The now-iconic cover (featuring Ono and Lennon standing nude together) notwithstanding, nothing about Two Virgins is safe. It would be a risky move today for artists in the larger, popculture conversation just as it was a risky move in 1969. But this is an uncomfortably private, two-person dialogue about - and celebration of - experimentation, inspiration and play. And these two souls bravely let us look through the keyhole.

John Lennon & Yoko Ono/Unfinished Music No. 2: Life with the Lions ....CD $15.99

John Lennon & Yoko Ono/Unfinished Music No. 2: Life with the Lions ....CD $15.99

Life with the Lions is the sound of Ono and Lennon validating their love as something impenetrable and timeless. It's when we, the listener, begin to fully understand that the scope of their recording efforts was much more than a recording collaboration, and something closer to a performative documentary, a declaration of "Our life and our love is our art -  every nitty, gritty part of it."

Trans-Siberian Orchestra/The Ghosts of Christmas Eve ....CD $14.99

Trans-Siberian Orchestra/The Ghosts of Christmas Eve ....CD $14.99

In addition to the tracks already familiar to and loved by TSO fans from the 2001 multi-platinum DVD and long running PBS fundraiser The Ghosts of Christmas Eve, this new album version contains a special bonus track, "Music Box Blues (Daryl Pediford Tribute New York 2004)."

William Basinski/A Shadow in Time ....CD $15.99

William Basinski/A Shadow in Time ....CD $15.99

World-renowned as one of experimental music's most vital and impressionistic composers of the past few decades, William Basinski's tape loop works have been especially influential, particularly on the historic series, The Disintegration Loops, where distorted, orchestral tape samples burrow deep into the listener's psyche through meditative repetition. On his new album, A Shadow in Time, Basinski plunges deeper than ever for the plaintive, solitary eulogy to David Bowie, aptly titled "For David Robert Jones." Conversely, the title track, "A Shadow in Time," is a subtle, celestial escalation of melody and drone. The result is one of the most truly transcendent pieces of music he has ever committed to - or wrung from - tape. William Basinski is a classically trained musician and composer who has been working in experimental media for over 30 years in NYC and most recently, California. Employing obsolete technology and analogue tape loops, his haunting and melancholy soundscapes explore the temporal nature of life and resound with the reverberations of memory and the mystery of time. His epic 4-disc masterwork, The Disintegration Loops received international critical acclaim and was one of Pitchfork's Top Albums of the Decade. Basinski was chosen by Music Director, Antony Hegarty to create music for the Robert Wilson opera, The Life and Death of Marina Abramovic which had its world premiere at the Manchester International Festival in July 2011 and toured Europe in 2012 and North America in 2013. RIYL: Brian Eno, Tim Hecker, Eluvium, Stars of the Lid.

Grand Funk/Shinin' On ....Hybrid SACD $27.99

Riding high off the success of their 1973 We're an American Band hit album and tour, Grand Funk retained Todd Rundgren to produce "Shinin' On."  "Shinin' On" is pure Grand Funk and is widely considered one of their best.  The cover of Carole King and Gerry Goffin's "The Loco-Motion" turned this dance classic on its ear with a stomping beat and shot the pop remake straight to #1 on the Billboard singles chart resulting in gigantic album sales.  The original album was packaged in a cosmic 3D sleeve that had a pair of 3D glasses embedded in the album jacket. Audio Fidelity has matched that unique packaging. Our SACD slipcase includes a pair of 3D glasses so the original art can be fully realized and enjoyed.

Joe Cocker/joe cocker! ....Hybrid SACD $27.99

Joe's distinctive covers of songs by Bob Dylan, the Beatles, Leonard Cohen and Leon Russell make this debut album a landmark. Cocker's cover of George Harrison's masterpiece "Something" is arguably the best interpretation of that song ever recorded. The album also features "Lawdy Miss Clawdy," "She Came in through the Bathroom Window" and "Delta Lady."  Joe Cocker ranks up there with Jimi Hendrix and Janis Joplin as the great performers of the '60s. "joe cocker!" was and continues to be one of the greatest albums of all time.

Hi, folks,

ukbox2.jpg (16609 bytes) ukbox3.jpg (30933 bytes)

As you all know, after months of working out quality control issues that plagues the UK Ultimate Collector's Edition, the box set was finally released...and then went immediately out of print!  New copies were fetching several hundreds of dollars!   Recently I noted that a second pressing was in the works and slated for a late December/early January release.  That pressing has been completed and is now available!!!  Be warned, though, there were only 2000 copies planned for this second pressing!  So there's no telling how long it will be available and, like the first run, it could disappear fairly quickly.  Don't waste time.  Order your copy right away!

 

 

Now back to our regular programming.  Today we're going to continue on with the "Pittsburgh" Collection.  There's plenty still left from the previous offering.  All prices have been dropped, so get'em now before someone else does!  This collection runs the gamut from progressive to jazz, blues, pop, soul, classic rock, etc.  As is usual with collection sales there is only one copy of each title below.  So if you see something you want, let me know right away.

If you'd like to order anything you see in today's newsletter, you'll find ordering options at http://www.artist-shop.com/order.htm . Or if you're a regular customer and want to use the info from your last order, feel free to drop me an e-mail with your selections.

Now you may ask yourself, if those titles are being let go at a 'nice price,' are there also some rarities in the collection that demand a 'not quite as nice price?' And the answer is yes. There are some that are just a few dollars more and some that are 'a bit higher.' If you're interested, here is the list of artists.


Area
Asturcon
Ginger Baker (with Jens Johansson & Jonas Hellborg)
Cargo
Glass Hammer
Isildurs Bane

 


 

And of course we still have the ever popular Anonymous  & BB Collections.   As customary, prices have dropped since the lists were last sent out with MOST titles down to a SINGLE DOLLAR!  For a single dollar you can try something you're curious about but have never heard before!  Everything must go!!!  Anonymous, who is one of your fellow Artist Shop Newsletter subscribers, has realized 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 while donating 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 Unicef International Children's Fund. (BTW, if anyone else out there is in the same situation and has a large collection, more than you'll ever listen to in a lifetime, that needs curating, please drop me a note.)  Below you'll find a list of books, DVDs and CDs for sale. Anonymous is a real progressive music fan and the majority of the CDs from his collection are imports. I should mention that for each title below, there is only ONE copy available. So if you see something you want, let me know right away!

Magma/Emhnthtt-R Trilogie ....import double DVD (NTSC Region 0) $60.99

2 DVD Digi-Pack & slipcase (NTSC All Regions, 4 hrs 23 mins, English Subtitles).   Initiated in 1973, it's composition beholds it's whole fulfillment after more than four decades. It is the testimony of an unwaveringly timeless inspiration, of which the expectant present asserts itself beyond history.  Connecting wide and contrasted scenes, it sets it's coherence within it's very dynamics, playing with chiaroscuro, between choral splendor, operatic jubilation and hurricane of spirits beyond graves. The different parts formerly scattered around are finally gathered in all their glory, finding their proper place in the grand scale of a now complete work, topped off with the bright blaze of a Grand Finale. The second DVD features The Crossroads of Times, 115 minutes of conversations with Christian Vander on composing each movement of the trilogy. Through a process of digging, expanding, anchoring and changing directions, his unique approach continues to propel Magma's music forward.

2016 two CD collection, a history of King Crimson featuring many extracts and tracks appearing on CD for the first time. Originally available only at concert venues on King Crimson's sold out European 2016 tour. Much sought after by fans, hence more widespread release. The Elements tour boxes were devised specifically for the King Crimson tours but have since gone on to great success with fans with both 2014 and 2015 editions becoming firm sellers. The depth & variety of King Crimson's archives allows for the presentation of such "alternate best of/introduction to..." style releases, providing a fascinating audio history of the band featuring extracts from rehearsals, new live recordings, elements from studio recordings, full tracks, alternate takes and finished recordings from 1969-2015, many of which make their first appearance on CD. Every line-up is featured across this set. The set also provides tantalizing audio extracts and hints of forthcoming King Crimson releases.

Richard Barbieri/Planets + Persona ....import CD $19.99

Richard Barbieri/Planets + Persona ....import CD $19.99

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

Flashback Caruso/The Flashback Caruso Memorial Barbecue ....CD $16.99

Flashback Caruso - a seven-piece Norwegian collective of psychedelic adventurers, fronted by Anders Bjermeland of Mollmaskin - return with its first ever full band release.   The legendary Trondheim-based band have released three albums to date solely featuring multi-instrumentalist Anders Bjermeland handling the instrumental parts.   The Flashback Caruso Memorial Barbecue was recorded live to sixteen-track tape and features the band's astonishing seven piece live incarnation at its most unfettered.   Across 50 minutes, the album showcases all of the band's many facets, from the sunshine pop of Going Home, to the gorgeous melancholy of Levitation Song, to the hard-edged Raggazza Italiano, to the prog influenced Aqualung Boy.  'A dizzying and somewhat unreal intersection between the safe and beautiful on one side, and the somewhat incomprehensible, wondrous and unsettling on the other. Campfire warmth organic soundscape in a mix of freak-folk and psychedelia.' - Adressa.  'Playful and hypnotising rhythms, with vulnerable vocal harmonies, wrapped in a '60-'70s-inspired prog-rock suit. This is a band you should hear.' - Kakao Musikk

...And You Will Know Us by the Trail of Dead/Live at Rockpalast 2009 ....import DVD $22.99

May 14, 2009 was perhaps a life-changing day for the audience present at the Live Music Hall in Cologne, Germany. Groundbreaking US group ...And You Will Know Us by the Trail Of Dead proved upon their very first guitar strum, that no other contemporary rock band's stage presence could even come close to what the Texas-born band created during its live performances.  With over 90 minutes of raw adrenaline-pumping rock music, instrument throwing, and mosh pits, this concert is sure to either drain every single energy cell in the one's body or the complete opposite, transferring a loaded dose of musical caffeine.   Jewelcase CD edition.  NTSC DVD edition.

Frank Zappa/Live at the Palladium New York Halloween 1977 ....CD $17.99

By October 1977, Frank Zappa was firmly established as an iconic and iconoclastic rock star. He had recently been preparing Lather (1977), a proposed four-LP set, due for release on Halloween. However, his label declined to proceed, leading to protracted legal hassles. This show, at The Palladium, New York was broadcast on the King Biscuit Flower Hour, was on the album's release date, and finds the great man in superb form, as he tackles a range of material, much of it from Lather. The entire broadcast is presented here with background notes and images.

Vangelis/Delectus - The Polydor & Vertigo Recordings 1973-1985 ....import 13 CD Box Set $164.99

Modern music visionary Vangelis has announced the release of a new 13 disc box set entitled "Delectus," featuring a chosen selection of his early discographic work. The mammoth collection will include all of his albums on Vertigo and Polydor, recently signed by Universal and remastered for the first time ever under the legendary composer's own supervision.  Presented in a lavish box with an essay and a plethora of rare photographs, the discs are housed in two die-cut, gatefold disc holders within a rigid 242mm square slipcase, and accompanied by a 64-page book illustrating a period of his prolific career of the iconic maestro. "I always welcome remastering my old work for two basic reasons," explains Vangelis, "firstly, I get the opportunity to bring the sounds to today's standards, secondly, it gives me the chance to go through the experiences and memories of the time."  "Delectus" gathers together Vangelis' seminal albums "Earth," "L'Apocalypse Des Animaux," "China," "See You Later," "Antarctica," "Mask," "Opera Sauvage,""Chariots of Fire," "Soil Festivities" and "Invisible Connections," plus his collaborative recordings with Jon Anderson as ‘Jon & Vangelis' - "Short Stories," "The Friends of Mister Cairo" & "Private Collection." The remastered originals will be complemented with rare B-sides and 4 previously unreleased tracks.

Rick Wakeman/Phantom of the Opera ....CD + DVD $18.99

Rick Wakeman/Phantom of the Opera ....CD + DVD $18.99

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. This album and dvd package is the first time the Phantom of the Opera with the Rick Wakeman Soundtrack has being released on DVD and accompanied with the full conceptual soundtrack (as a double CD) to one of the classics of American cinema. The film, The Phantom of the Opera is a 1925 American silent horror film adaptation of Gaston Leroux's 1910 novel Le Fantome de l'Opera, directed by Rupert Julian and starring Lon Chaney, Sr. in the title role of the deformed Phantom who haunts the Paris Opera House, causing murder and mayhem in an attempt to make the woman he "loves" a star. The film remains most famous for Chaney's ghastly, self-devised make-up, which was kept a studio secret until the film's premiere. The film was released on November 25, 1925. The print of the film has been fully restored using the latest 21st century technology and the long lost "Ballroom scene" has being reinserted into the film in it's rightful place. The DVD has many bonus features such as: Rick Wakeman Commentary throughout. Rick Wakeman Talks about the Phantom Original. Christopher Lee introduction. Extensive sleeve notes by Tim Scott. Deluxe artwork and 12 page booklet.

Rick Wakeman/Live at the Winterland Theatre 1975 ....import CD $15.99

Rick Wakeman/Live at the Winterland Theatre 1975 ....import CD $15.99

Recorded in 1975 at the Winterland Theatre, the majestic Wakeman is captured at his best on this timeless radio broadcast. Taken from the early stages of Wakeman's career, this album captures him in his freshest period, at a time when his flamboyant playing style was most respected. This recording features a great show with tracks from Six Wives, Journey and Myths. Sound quality is superb and The English Rock Ensemble and Rick are in fine form. Included are stunning versions of "Lancelot and the Black Night" and "Merlin the Magician," two of this album's finest cuts. Particular attention is given to "The Forest," a track rarely played live by Wakeman, but placed fittingly in the middle of the eight selections here.

Brian Eno/Reflection ....CD $16.99

Brian Eno/Reflection ....CD $16.99

Reflection is a studio album by British avant-ambient musician Brian Eno, released by Warp Records January 2017. All tracks written by Brian Eno. Actually "track."   "Reflection is the latest work in a long series. It started (as far as record releases are concerned) with Discreet Music in 1975 (or did it start with the first Fripp and Eno album in 1973? Or did it start with the first original piece of music I ever made, at Ipswich Art School in 1965 - recordings of a metal lampshade slowed down to half and quarter speed, all overlaid?)  Anyway, it s the music that I later called Ambient. I don t think I understand what that term stands for anymore - it seems to have swollen to accommodate some quite unexpected bedfellows - but I still use it to distinguish it from pieces of music that have fixed duration and rhythmically connected, locked together elements.  The pedigree of this piece includes Thursday Afternoon, Neroli (whose subtitle is Thinking Music IV) and LUX. Ive made a lot of thinking music, but most of it I ve kept for myself. Now I notice that people are using some of those earlier records in the way that I use them - as provocative spaces for thinking - so I feel more inclined to make them public.  Pieces like this have another name: they re GENERATIVE. By that I mean they make themselves. My job as a composer is to set in place a group of sounds and phrases, and then some rules which decide what happens to them. I then set the whole system playing and see what it does, adjusting the sounds and the phrases and the rules until I get something I m happy with. Because those rules are probabilistic (often taking the form perform operation x, y percent of the time) the piece unfolds differently every time it is activated. What you have here is a recording of one of those unfoldings." CD in case bound sleeve with 12 page booklet.

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

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

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

Nuova Era/Return to the Castle ....import CD $28.99

Nuova Era/Return to the Castle ....import CD $28.99

Nuova Era are a fundamental band in the Italian prog-rock scene: active between the late '80s and the first half of the '90s, they released in those years four albums which most of the prog enthusiasts consider unmissable for whoever nourishes even the slightest interest in the 'progressive rock matter.' "Return to the Castle" is no exception, and marks the true comeback for the group led by Walter Pini, the band's main composer, here joined among others by the historical singer and guitarist Alex Camalti. Over twenty years have passed since "Il passo del soldato" (1995), a long period interrupted in 2010 by an eponymous release, a compilation of already released songs, demos, new studio and live recordings. Given these premises, the publication of "Return to the Castle" therefore represents an important event: a 75-minute symphonic progressive rock, sung in English for the first time in the history of the band, which ranges from baroque sections to other ones more dreamy and atmospheric. To the considerable length of this album, consisting of six long passages alternated with shorter interludes called 'Carousels,' contribute many long-lasting instrumental parts. A must!

RPWL/Plays Pink Floyd's The Man & the Journey ....CD + DVD $18.99

RPWL/Plays Pink Floyd's The Man & the Journey ....CD + DVD $18.99

For their 2015/2016 "History" tour, RPWL have come up with something very special: Pink Floyd's legendary first concept show of 1969 was entitled "The Man and The Journey." It is a true classic that, however, never managed to make it's way onto a sound carrier. RPWL have now revived that show - in the inimitable way that made RPWL famous themselves. But that's only the first part of the story: RPWL bring along a brand new live CD and DVD that contains the very "The Man And The Journey" show, filmed and recorded during a performance at "De Cacaofabriek" in Helmond, Netherlands. The recording showcases a band in top form that brings the unorthodox set to life with playful lightness. RPWL take the audience on a trip through a human's life. From getting up in the morning, going to work, all the way to nightmares and a lot more. On songs like "Nightmare" - the song that later became famous as "Cymbaline" - the band amazes with fascinating ensemble playing. The improvised solos do not only show the individual virtuosity of the respective band member in breathtaking manner but they also demonstrate the degree of ease with which the band manages to master the atmospheric, dynamic and sound-related hurdles hidden in this extraordinary example of psychedelic music. The magnificent and perfectly embedded visuals further enhance the artistic experience: they beautifully accompany the band as well as the audience on this journey through the early works of Pink Floyd.

Nash the Slash/And You Thought You Were Normal ....CD $15.99

Nash the Slash/And You Thought You Were Normal ....CD $15.99

And You Thought You Were Normal was Nash the Slash's second full-length and at the time blew away expectations of what a sophomore album could bring. With the radio hit Dance After Curfew and the incredible Vincent's Crows alone, Nash cemented his cult status as an 80s new-wave legend. It is hard to imagine in hindsight that it would be his last original full-length for nearly a decade.  Years later, Nash would reissue Normal on CD with bonus tracks, including the haunting Lake Ontario Suites, originally recorded for Colin Brunton's film "A Trip Around Lake Ontario," as well as tracks recorded for the Bruce McDonald film Roadkill. These and three other unreleased bonus tracks make up the expanded 20-track CD reissue on Artoffact Records.  As a bonus high-light, the Artoffact CD includes an unreleased edit mix of Dance After Curfew, produced by none other than Daniel Lanois.

Nash the Slash/Decomposing ....CD $14.99

Nash the Slash/Decomposing ....CD $14.99

Decomposing is one of the treasures in the Nash the Slash discography. It includes perhaps his most loved song, Womble, the iconic status of which was confirmed when Trevor Jackson included it on his Metal Dance release for Strut Records. Three other (de)compositions round out the release, each as excellent as Womble, and each with a personality of its own.  The original 12" was released in 1981, when Nash claimed that it was the first record ever playable at three speeds: 33, 45, and 78 RPM. The original release is extremely rare, having been issued only by Nash's own independent label Cut-Throat, and, unlike other early Nash releases, never licensed to Europe.   The Artoffact Records reissue is fully remastered and the fantastic decomposing sheet music cover has been lovingly restored.  On the CD version, fans will find the album repeated three times, once at each vinyl speed, capturing the original 12" concept in high-definition, digital audio for the first time ever.

IQ/Wake: Expanded Edition ....import CD $20.99

IQ/Wake: Expanded Edition ....import CD $20.99

Digitally remastered and expanded edition. The Wake is the third studio album by the British neo-progressive rock band IQ and was released in 1985. It entered the UK album chart on 22 June 1985. It is the only album by IQ to enter the UK album chart. The cover art is by lead singer Peter Nicholls. Most of the characters in the image are original, but the central character is based on Rae Dawn Chong wearing clay face (and body) paint as Ika in the film Quest for Fire (1981). However, according to Nicholls, many of the band's fans misinterpreted this as a self-portrait, since he wore extensive stage makeup at the time.

Gosta Berlings Saga has been an active band for 10+ years and has released three well-received full-length albums on the Cuneiform Records (Guapo, Soft Machine, Heldon, Steve Moore) & Transubstans Records (Graveyard, My Brother the Wind) labels. During their existence they have played in the US as well as all over Europe. Their new album 'Sersophane' is dark and dystopian, and the album is characterized by an eclectic mix of references, combining tight minimalistic grooves and driving/aggressive rhythms with unruly noise and a vibrant edge. Sounds Like: King Crimson, Magma, Guapo, Mahavishnu Orchestra.

Sun Ra/Singles: The Definitive 45s Collection 1952 - 1991 ....triple CD $19.99

Sun Ra/Singles: The Definitive 45s Collection 1952 - 1991 ....triple CD $19.99

SUN RA Singles the Definitive 45's Collection 1952 - 1991 - Strut presents a new definitive collection of Singles released by jazz maverick Sun Ra during his Earth years, spanning 1952 to 1991. Released prolifically during the 1950s and more sporadically thereafter, primarily on the Saturn label, the 45s offer one-off meteorites from Ra's prolific cosmic journey, tracing the development of his forward-thinking "Space-Bop" and his unique take on jazz and blues traditions which sounded unlike anything else from the period. As with his LPs, most 45s were only pressed in small runs and were sold at gigs and have since become extremely rare and sought after. Only a small handful of copies of "Love in Outer Space" b/w "Mayan Temple" and "The Blue One" b/w "Orbitration in Blue" have ever been seen; some have only been discovered in physical form in recent years; some were planned and penciled in but allegedly never made it to vinyl (including "Saturn" and "Velvet" from the Jazz In Silhouette LP) and some appeared as limited one-off magazine singles and posthumous releases, including "Hell #1" aka "Out There a Minute." The set is the most comprehensive collection of Ra's singles to date. Sleeve note writers Francis Gooding and Paul Griffiths brilliantly illustrate the role of the single within Ra's career and break down each release with detailed track by track notes. Working with Sun Ra LLC and Sun Raarchivist Michael D. Anderson, Strut has also assembled the best possible master sources for each track.

Sun Ra/The Space Age Is Here to Stay ....CD $16.99

Sun Ra/The Space Age Is Here to Stay ....CD $16.99

The first-ever collection of Arkestra vocal tracks! Over 75 minutes of vocal performances - audible perfection! Featuring album art interpreted from the work of "the father of modern space art," Chesley Bonestell, plus extensive liner notes. Across the history of jazz, there is no wilder, more future-forward composer and performer than Herman Poole Blount, aka Sun Ra. Known as much for his wild on-stage persona as his innovative compositions, Sun Ra was the avant-garde bleeding edge of the jazz genre, introducing modal composition and electronic instrumentation before almost anyone else - not to mention bringing the space age to life with his obsession with all things extraterrestrial. Across more than 100 LPs released in his lifetime, Sun Ra charted a course to space and far, far beyond. Known primarily for his keyboard improv and freeform band arrangements, Sun Ra could also write great vocal songs when he set his mind to it. Such songs as "Space Is the Place" and "Interplanetary Music No.1" show Ra's unique approach to songwriting, using eerie chanting and repetition to create hypnotic moods. And Ra could get swingy when he wanted to as well - "Enlightenment" and "Sometimes I'm Happy" are gorgeous ballads, as pretty as any Tin Pan Alley tune. Of course, it wouldn't be Sun Ra without his space age lyrics - "Take your first step out to outer space/You're like a little baby who never walked before" shows up in the future-predicting "Walking on the Moon." At long last, Modern Harmonic has put together The Space Age Is Here to Stay, the very first collection of Sun Ra's vocal tracks, two albums worth of mind-blowing tunes from the mind of the Man from Saturn himself. Includes extensive liner notes from Charles Blass of Sun Radio. Cue this one up and get ready to visit other worlds in Sun Ra's jazz rocket ship!

Miroslav Vitous/Ziljabu Nights ....import CD $24.99

Miroslav Vitous/Ziljabu Nights ....import CD $24.99

Miroslav Vitous' 'Ziljabu Nights' is the eighth release in Intuition Records "European Jazz Legends" series, presenting famous names from the European jazz scene in a live performance.  In hindsight, 'Infinite Search,' the title of Miroslav Vitous' first album as a leader from 1970, which featured players like Herbie Hancock, John McLaughlin, Jack DeJohnette and Joe Henderson, seems prophetic. The bassplayer, composer, educator, former member of the Czech Olympic swimming team, co-founder of the trailblazing group Weather Report, is still constantly on a quest, and never without a project. At 68, Vitous is far from retiring, working on a symphony, preparing gigs with a Big Band or the Prague Symphony, and occasionally presenting his music in concerts with his current group.  This live recording from the Theater Gutersloh presents him with this band - featuring Aydin Esen from Turkey on keyboards, Roberto Gatto from Italy on drums, as well as Gary Campbell from the US and Robert Bonisolo from Canada on saxophones, interplaying with Vitous on his singing upright bass. The music is a fascinating fusion of modern Jazz traditions and new musical ideas and concepts.

John Mayall/Talk about That ....CD $13.99

John Mayall/Talk about That ....CD $13.99

Iconic musician and Blues Hall of Fame member John Mayall releases his latest CD, Talk About That. Joining Mayall (vocals, keyboards, harmonica and guitar) and Greg Rzab (bass), Jay Davenport (drums) and Rocky Athas (guitar).  As special guest is legendary guitarist Joe Walsh, who plays on two tracks, "The Devil Must Be Laughing" and "Cards on the Table," both John Mayall compositions. The songs showcase Walsh's amazing guitar work and are destined to be two of the many highlights on this new disc.   For Joe Walsh, playing on a session with one of his musical heroes also held a special place. "It has been a bucket-list item since 1970 to play with John Mayall," states Walsh. "John had a run of GREAT British guitarists (one after another) with his 'Bluesbreakers' albums, and that's how many of us in the States became aware of them. Clapton, Peter Green, Mick Taylor - I studied them all for hours and became a much better guitarist as a result. The albums were legendary stuff and I have wanted to work with John for years and years, wondering what it would be like.  Finally got the chance - and he was the complete gentleman and fine, fine musician I had always hoped he would be. When you meet a hero who helped shape your career – it's a wonderful feeling to find they're even cooler than you always thought they were."   Produced by John Mayall (who also designed the album package) and Forty Below Records president Eric Corne (who also engineered and mixed), Talk about That was recorded at House of Blues Studio in Encino, California, and contains 11 tracks: eight originals, plus covers from Memphis soul music songwriter Bettye Crutcher ("It's Hard Going Up"), blues great Jimmy Rogers ("Goin' Away Baby") and rock singer/songwriter Jerry Lynn Williams ("Don't Deny Me").  The album also showcases a three-piece horn section that adds extra punch on several tracks, including the infectious New Orleans-flavored "Gimme Some Of That Gumbo."

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

Digitally remastered and expanded edition. Before I Forget was originally released on Harvest Records in June 1982, when Jon Lord was moonlighting from tinkling the ivories in Whitesnake.

Spirit/Live at the Ash Grove 1967 Volume 1 ....CD $17.99

First ever recordings of the band. Produced with the full co-operation of the Randy California estate. Recorded in the summer of 1967 and mastered from original tapes. 'The Ash Grove was a legendary venue for folk and early Los Angeles rock, and really the birthplace of Spirit. We brought in a younger, less inhibited crowd, a mixture of hippies and jazz freaks. Spirit, at its inception, was more of an improvisational jazz / blues group than anything else. Our first shows had very few structured songs, lots of free-form going on. We were constantly writing, trying out, and discarding songs. Getting to play in a major L.A. club, building a following, trying out new ideas, and forging what the group would become... It was a magical time for us' Jay Ferguson, 2016

"The five concert recordings in this set are not of a standard that we would normally consider releasing. We have for many years been plagued by poor quality bootleg recordings which are sold to fans at high prices. The idea is to allow fans to collect these recordings at a reasonable price and at the same time offer the musicians and songwriters some recompense for their work. We hope you enjoy them for what they are."

Steeleye Span/Dodgy Bastards ....import CD $21.99

Steeleye Span/Dodgy Bastards ....import CD $21.99

In an age when it is not uncommon for an artist to take five years to follow up a successful album, the creativity that Steeleye Span displayed in their early years is still astonishing. In the decade between their debut and 1980's Sails Of Silver, they released twelve records alongside touring the world and enjoying a string of hits. Now with their 50th anniversary fast approaching, the band have come close to matching that work rate - readying themselves for the release of Dodgy Bastards, their eighth album in twelve years. Such inspiration has come both from the individuals involved (Steeleye mainstays Maddy Prior, Rick Kemp and Liam Genockey alongside Jessie May Smart, Andrew Sinclair and Julian Littman in the current line-up) and the source material. Having set the writings of the late Terry Pratchett to music on the successful Wintersmith album and revisited their own past on 2015's Catch Up, this latest outing finds them returning to the folk tales and characters that have always been at the heart of the Steeleye sound. Dodgy Bastards draws on the work of 19th century American scholar Francis James Child and his collection of English and Scottish Ballads. The album is appropriately titled, containing stories of murder, religion, incest, skulls, honour killings and tormented spirits - the perfect subject material for Steeleye Span's dark take on the music of the British Isles. Such epic tales require a suitable musical backdrop and the record is firmly in the band's classic musical mould. 'Brown Robyn's Confession' sets the tone but with a new twist, violinist Jessie May Smart taking the lead vocal before the distinct tones of Maddy Prior join her on the striking chorus. Elsewhere each member plays their part, allowing the music to explore a variety of different paths as the songs ebb and flow in keeping with their characters and events - with Prior and Littman even adding a spoken word / rap element to long time band favourite 'Boys Of Bedlam.' Always moving forward, always in touch with their roots, Steeleye Span are as inspired and as inspirational as ever. - Phil Udell

Philip Glass & Kronos Quartet/Dracula ....CD $18.99

Philip Glass & Kronos Quartet/Dracula ....CD $18.99

Orange Mountain is pleased to announce for the reissued CD album of Philip Glass's 1998 score to the 1931 film Dracula starring Bela Lugosi. For his new score, Philip Glass tapped the all-star Kronos Quartet and wrote specifically for them. In the late-1990s Universal Pictures approached composer Philip Glass to compose a new score for one of it's classic monster movies. Glass chose to compose a score for Tod Browning's 1931 Dracula because it never had an original score. He composed the work for string quartet to evoke an ancient sound and now almost 20 years later Glass and Kronos continue to perform the music live to film around the world. In the end Glass's music gave the film new life, perhaps adding something that had been missing before there was music: structure and pacing and above all a new sense of mystery and soul.

Moebius/Musik fur Metropolis ....CD $17.99

In 2012, Dieter Moebius was invited to perform music to Fritz Lang's legendary silent film Metropolis (1927). For this purpose, he produced pre-arranged tracks and samples to be treated with effects and combined during live improvisation according to the dramaturgical setting of the film. His impressive work reveals it's full power and depth in combination with the images from the film. It was his plan to create an album-length version of this music for release. Unfortunately, Dieter Moebius passed away on July 20, 2015 and was not able to complete the project. With the help and support of Dieter Moebius's widow Irene and two longtime musical partners, Tim Story and Jon Leidecker, the Berlin musician Jonas Forster finished the remaining work and completed the production.

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!

John Hammond/Mirrors ....CD $13.99

John Hammond/Mirrors ....CD $13.99

The cleverly-conceived cover shot tips you off to the fact that this 1967 record - comprised of outtakes from sessions for his John Hammond, Big City Blues, So Many Roads, and Country Blues albums - displays two different sides of the great white bluesman John Hammond, one electric, one acoustic. The electric side features a backing band for the ages, consisting of Band members Levon Helm and Robbie Robertson plus Mike Bloomfield (on piano!) and Charley Musselwhite, while the acoustic side is just Hammond on guitar. There is little doubt that members of blues-rock bands both current and future listened carefully to this record; "Death Don't Have No Mercy" (Grateful Dead), "Statesboro Blues" (Allman Brothers), and "Keys to the Highway" (Derek & the Dominos) all appear here, and indeed Hammond was friends with Eric Clapton and Duane Allman as well as with the members of The Band that play on the album. More importantly, however, Hammond lays a convincing claim to being one of his generation's greatest bluesmen, especially with his takes on the Robert Johnson tunes "Travelling Riverside," "Stones in My Passway," and "Walking Blues." This is the only Hammond album recorded for Vanguard in the '60s yet to be released on CD, and our Real Gone reissue includes notes by Richie Unterberger with exclusive quotes from John Hammond himself. A long-lost classic!

Cat Mother & The All Night Newsboys/The Street Giveth...and the Street Taketh Away ....CD $13.99

Cat Mother & The All Night Newsboys/The Street Giveth...and the Street Taketh Away ....CD $13.99

Let's get the preliminaries over with right away by stating that this album, the 1969 debut release from Cat Mother and the All Night Newsboys, was co-produced by none other than Jimi Hendrix (they were long-time friends, the band opened for The Experience on tour, and had the misfortune of sharing the same manager, Mike Jeffrey). But Cat Mother was far more than a footnote to a superstar's career. Not only did this record score a Top 40 hit with "Good Old Rock 'N Roll," but it's also a marvelously eclectic affair beloved by record collectors of every stripe - just do a quick Google search - with elements of folk, country and late '60s riff rock alongside the hit's tongue-in-cheek revivalism. Not JUST for Hendrix completists (though they will want it, too)!

Sandy Bull/Fantasias for Guitar and Banjo ....CD $13.99

Sandy Bull/Fantasias for Guitar and Banjo ....CD $13.99

Multi-instrumentalist Sandy Bull's debut, Fantasias for Guitar and Banjo, was for all intents and purposes the beginning of the "world music" movement. And if that seems like a bold claim, keep in mind that while many classical composers had borrowed folk motifs throughout the centuries, the melange of folk, jazz, blues, classical, gospel, and even rock 'n' roll that this record offered - back in 1963! - was simply unprecedented. It all comes together on the album's first track, a 21 minute and 51 second stylistic odyssey appropriately entitled "Blend."  Backed by jazz drummer Billy Higgins, Bull improvises in a fashion akin to jazz, but his guitar style displays elements of folk, and the droning quality and raga-like climax echo aspects of Middle Eastern and Indian music. The rest of the album is no less peripatetic, offering interpretations of German composer Carl Orff, English Renaissance composer William Byrd, a Southern mountain tune, and a gospel song.  Nowadays, of course, this kind of stylistic leapfrogging is commonplace; but Bull was so far ahead of his time in 1963 that the record predictably did not sell well, though it did attract an avid cult following and gained praise from the New York Times and Down Beat. Now, Real Gone Music takes great pleasure in bringing this groundbreaking recording back into print for the first time ever on CD, with notes by Richie Unterberger supplementing Nat Hentoff's original notes and remastering by Joe Tarantino. One of the great lost treasures of the '60s, ripe to be rediscovered.

The B-52's/Live! 8.24.1979 ....CD $13.99

The B-52's/Live! 8.24.1979 ....CD $13.99

Best to let the band itself describe this live album, which is only the second B-52's concert recording and the only one to capture them during their early years: "We opened for the Talking Heads at the Berklee Center in Boston just six weeks after our first record was released. We were a little scared of the audience so we kept our heads down and focused - and we danced like mad when there was a break! Ricky was so fierce on the guitar - so intense - it was all so raw and live and we loved it."  Now, Real Gone Music is very proud to present this key live document of one of America's most beloved and distinctive New Wave groups on CD for the first time, complete with liner notes by Jason Gross featuring fresh quotes from the band members and rare photos. From "Rock Lobster" to "Private Idaho," you WILL dance this mess around when you hear this, we promise!

The Isley Brothers/Groove with You ... Live! ....CD $15.99

The Isley Brothers/Groove with You ... Live! ....CD $15.99

"The Great Lost Isley Brothers Album" is coming to CD from Real Gone Music and Second Disc Records! In 1980, Ronald, Rudolph, O'Kelly, Ernie and Marvin Isley and Chris Jasper were riding high with their electrifying fusion of rock, funk and soul. After having transformed in 1973 from a three-man vocal group to a self-contained six-man band, The Isleys cranked out hit after hit: original powerhouses like "That Lady," "Fight the Power," and "For the Love of You," and dramatic covers of pop songs introduced by Seals and Crofts, Carole King, and Todd Rundgren. "Don't Say Goodnight (It's Time for Love)" had given the Isleys their longest stay atop the R&B charts since 1969's "It's Your Thing," and savoring its success, they decided to follow in the footsteps of The Commodores, Parliament, and Earth Wind & Fire to record a live album. Rather than bring a mobile truck to a concert venue, however, The Isley Brothers chose to cut Groove with You...Live! at Bearsville Sound Studio in Woodstock, New York. The resulting recordings had all of the incendiary thrills of a live performance, but with pristine studio fidelity. The band overdubbed an audience's frenzied reception and the energetic introduction of MC "Gorgeous" George Odell to create an in-studio live album as captivating as the real thing. It was presented to CBS for release on the band's T-Neck imprint, but the label opted to wait for an original studio record.  Groove with You...Live! was shelved. Fast forward to 2015, and the Bearsville sessions were remixed, sans crowd ambiance, for inclusion as one disc of a massive Isleys CD box set. Later that year, Groove with You...Live! was restored and released in its originally-intended "live" version on limited edition vinyl. Now, this sizzling, swooning and immersive double-album document of The Isleys at the peak of their powers comes to CD for the very first time as The Isley Brothers originally intended it!  Featuring classic hits like "Take Me to the Next Phase," "Summer Breeze," and "Livin' in the Life," Groove with You...Live! has been remastered by Mark Wilder and Chris Le Monde and features new liner notes from The Second Disc's Joe Marchese with quotes from Ernie Isley and Chris Jasper. This must-have for fans of R&B, soul, funk and rock will, without a doubt, make you want to shout!

Fanny/Fanny ....CD $15.99

Fanny/Fanny ....CD $15.99

It's hard to overstate the importance of Fanny's 1970 debut album. For the first time, a group of women (sisters June and Jean Millington, Alice De Buhr and Nickey Barclay) wrote and sang their own songs, played their own instruments and, perhaps most importantly, rocked just as hard as any male band out there. And, as the first all female band signed to a major label (Reprise) and with superstar producer Richard Perry at the board, these four women became perhaps L.A.'s biggest "buzz band," landing repeated bookings at the Whisky-a-Go-Go with a who's who of rock's glitterati in attendance. But, without a reference point with which to review them, the rock press was less than kind, often dismissing them as a novelty act.  Fanny would have to become that reference point, and so they did for the generations of female rockers to come after them, from Joan Jett to Girlschool to Courtney Love and beyond.  They were truly the Godmothers of Chick Rock.  Now, Real Gone Music is proud to reissue, the self-titled debut release from Fanny, complete with the original gatefold album art and sporting new liner notes from none other than June Millington, whose tales will take you inside the studio and out to the front lines of rock's feminist makeover. Grrl power starts here!

Fanny/Mother's Pride (Expanded Edition) ....CD $15.99

Fanny/Mother's Pride (Expanded Edition) ....CD $15.99

With the release of Fanny's 1973 album Mother's Pride, Real Gone Music concludes its reissue campaign of the groundbreaking female rock group's classic Reprise catalog. And while there might be some argument as to whether or not we have saved the best for last - all four Reprise albums the band put out have their champions among Fanny followers - there is no question that we have saved the biggest for last, as this expanded edition clocks in with no less than eight bonus tracks! Indeed, Mother's Pride is perhaps the most controversial entry in the Fanny catalog, as Todd Rundgren agreed to produce the album on the condition that he and he alone oversee the album mix. The result was a record that cemented Fanny's popularity in the U.K. but failed to make a dent in the charts here in the States. Like our previous Fanny reissues, this release features track-by-track annotation from the band as well as rare photos.  Another seminal '70s rock record from everybody's favorite "forgotten" all-female rock group, supplemented with rare demos and lost tracks!

Wilson Pickett/Land of 1000 Dances - The Complete Atlantic Singles Vol. One ....CD $16.99

Wilson Pickett/Land of 1000 Dances - The Complete Atlantic Singles Vol. One ....CD $16.99

Are you ready for the wickedest Real Gone soul collection yet? Here, in one smokin' hot set, are the first 22 single sides that the great Wilson Pickett recorded for the Atlantic label, some of the most hallowed recordings in the history of soul music. Along with the intoxicating mix of hits - "In the Midnight Hour," "Mustang Sally," "634-5789 (Soulsville, U.S.A.)," "Land of 1000 Dances," "Don't Fight It," and more - and rare B-sides that come with the territory on a singles collection, you also get those punchy mono single mixes/versions that bring out the raw excitement of these seminal performances, not to mention the incredible musicianship of folks like Steve Cropper, Al Jackson, Donald "Duck" Dunn, and Isaac Hayes. Indeed, even if you purchased Rhino Handmade's collection of Pickett's complete Atlantic studio sessions, you don't own the single versions - this volume (and the two to come after it) are necessary complements to that outstanding set. Remastered by Mike Milchner from sources derived from the original tapes, and annotated by Joe Marchese, who penned the notes on Real Gone's previous collection of the Wicked Pickett's RCA recordings, Land of 1000 Dances - The Complete Atlantic Singles Vol. One presents some of the greatest soul ever waxed exactly how it was originally waxed - as singles for airplay on the radio. It's the material that made Wilson Pickett a legend.

Eddie Money/The Complete Hits & More! ....double CD $19.99

Eddie Money/The Complete Hits & More! ....double CD $19.99

After famously dropping out of the New York Police Academy to pursue his rock and roll dreams, Eddie Money burst on to the scene in the late '70s with a series of sweaty, blue collar hits in the mold of Bob Seger, Mitch Ryder, and Bruce Springsteen, then capitalized on the MTV era by narrating a series of funny videos that cemented his image as a rock and roll Everyman, albeit one with a sneaky good songwriting touch and a powerful blue-eyed soul set of pipes. The lifestyle got the best of him during the mid-'80s, but he made a remarkable comeback in the late '80s and continues on the circuit to this day offering his trademark mix of no-nonsense rock 'n' roll and regular guy stage persona. The Complete Hits and More is by far the biggest Eddie Money collection ever, offering, like the title says, all 24 chart hits plus tracks drawn from 10 different albums and some rare live tracks drawn from the promo-only Livin' It Up EP (which debuts on CD here in its entirety), featuring "Two Tickets to Paradise," "Baby Hold On," "Think I'm in Love," "Shakin'," his comeback duet with Ronnie Spector, "Take Me Home Tonight"/"Be My Baby," "I Wanna Go Back," "Walk on Water," and "Peace in Our Time." Bill Kopp supplies the liner notes, with added photos and album art. 35 tracks remastered by Maria Triana at Battery Studios...two CDs to paradise for Eddie Money fans!

The Meters/A Message from The Meters - The Complete Josie Reprise & Warner Bros. Singles 1968-1977 ....double CD $26.99

The Meters/A Message from The Meters - The Complete Josie Reprise & Warner Bros. Singles 1968-1977 ....double CD $26.99

How would you like to hear a new side - or should we say sides - of the world's greatest funk band? This 40-track set presents the A and B-side of every single that organist Art Neville, guitarist Leo Nocentelli, bassist George Porter, Jr., and drummer Joseph "Zigaboo" Modeliste cut for the Josie, Reprise & Warner Bros. label, virtually their entire singles output save for a few odds 'n' ends issued mostly overseas. That means that you not only get every hit along with its hard-to-find B-side but also the rare single mixes, including the especially rare original mono single mixes of the 1968-1971 Josie sides, very few of which have appeared on CD (the first CD is all mono; the second, featuring the later Reprise and Warner Bros. singles, presents all stereo single mixes). These songs represent the mother lode of New Orleans funk, classic tracks like "Sophisticated Cissy," "Cissy Strut," "Look-Ka Py Py," "Chicken Strut," "Hand Clapping Song," "Hey Pocky A-Way," and more, all but two tracks co-produced by the late, legendary Allen Toussaint. And, with liner notes by Bill Dahl featuring quotes from Nocentelli, Neville, and Porter, this 2-CD set offers probably the best retrospective to date of this enormously influential band. And how's the sound? Well, after extensive and exhaustive tape research, we were able to come up with original tape sources for all but five of these single sides, and the remastering - by Mike Milchner at SonicVision - is tight! Just maybe the year's most indispensable R&B release.






There's more to come soon!!!  Spread the word!

Videos

Magma - Emhnthtt-R Trilogie - UK - Import, NTSC Region 0 DVD $60.99
2 DVD Digi-Pack & slipcase (NTSC All Regions, 4 hrs 23 mins, English Subtitles) Initiated in 1973, it's composition beholds it's whole fulfillment after more than four decades. It is the testimony of an unwaveringly timeless inspiration, of which the expectant present asserts itself beyond history. Connecting wide and contrasted scenes, it sets it's coherence within it's very dynamics, playing with chiaroscuro, between choral splendor, operatic jubilation and hurricane of spirits beyond graves. The different parts formerly scattered around are finally gathered in all their glory, finding their proper place in the grand scale of a now complete work, topped off with the bright blaze of a Grand Finale. The second DVD features The Crossroads of Times, 115 minutes of conversations with Christian Vander on composing each movement of the trilogy. Through a process of digging, expanding, anchoring and changing directions, his unique approach continues to propel Magma's music forward.

Naming the band Derringer, the singer and guitarist was joined by bassist Kenny Aaronson, future Black Sabbath and Dio drummer, Vinny Appice, with the quartet completed by guitarist Danny Johnson. Going for a rockier, harder, less poppy sound than Rick's previous musical excursions, Derringer signed to Blue Sky Records, a subsidiary of Columbia Records, in 1976. This set includes the albums Derringer, Live In Cleveland, Sweet Evil, Derringer Live and If I Weren't So Romantic I'd Shoot You.

In 2012, Dieter Moebius was invited to perform music to Fritz Lang's legendary silent film Metropolis (1927). For this purpose, he produced pre-arranged tracks and samples to be treated with effects and combined during live improvisation according to the dramaturgical setting of the film. His impressive work reveals it's full power and depth in combination with the images from the film. It was his plan to create an album-length version of this music for release. Unfortunately, Dieter Moebius passed away on July 20, 2015 and was not able to complete the project. With the help and support of Dieter Moebius's widow Irene and two longtime musical partners, Tim Story and Jon Leidecker, the Berlin musician Jonas Forster finished the remaining work and completed the production.

Pinhas, Richard - Reverse CD $17.99
Reverse's dark experimental noise and long repetitive tracks have an intimidating first impression. But listening to the whole 50 minutes leaves one feeling purified. Pinhas even says this album "fixed" and "resurrected" him: "It was a healing process for me to make this album. To get rid of all the negativity that occupied my brain." The main process of the album production was one of construction, with Pinhas and Oren Ambarchi (guitars, "dronz") forming the skeleton. After the initial sessions in Paris, they threw out everything except their own parts and then started searching for "the right parts. Not a drummer, but the drummer, not a bass guitarist, but the bass guitarist." He enlisted the talents of Arthur Narcy (drums), Florian Tatar (bass) along with Masami Akita (analog synths), his son Duncan Nilson-Pinhas (digital synths), and William Winant (percussion). Reverse reflects Pinhas's keen interest in Kabbalah. "Ketter" is an unknowable realm and the music reflects this.

RPWL - Plays Pink Floyd's The Man & The Journey - With DVD, 2PC CD $18.99
For their 2015/2016 "History" tour, RPWL have come up with something very special: Pink Floyd's legendary first concept show of 1969 was entitled "The Man And The Journey." It is a true classic that, however, never managed to make it's way onto a sound carrier. RPWL have now revived that show - in the inimitable way that made RPWL famous themselves. But that's only the first part of the story: RPWL bring along a brand new live CD and DVD that contains the very "The Man And The Journey" show, filmed and recorded during a performance at "De Cacaofabriek" in Helmond, Netherlands. The recording showcases a band in top form that brings the unorthodox set to life with playful lightness. RPWL take the audience on a trip through a human's life. From getting up in the morning, going to work, all the way to nightmares and a lot more. On songs like "Nightmare" - the song that later became famous as "Cymbaline" - the band amazes with fascinating ensemble playing. The improvised solos do not only show the individual virtuosity of the respective band member in breathtaking manner but they also demonstrate the degree of ease with which the band manages to master the atmospheric, dynamic and sound-related hurdles hidden in this extraordinary example of psychedelic music. The magnificent and perfectly embedded visuals further enhance the artistic experience: they beautifully accompany the band as well as the audience on this journey through the early works of Pink Floyd.

Deep Purple - California Jam 74 - UK - Import DVD $25.99
DVD (NTSC/Region 0), Blu-ray/All Region pressing. The phenomenon now known as arena rock was born at the California Jam - and Deep Purple were at it's epicenter. In many ways, the California Jam was the equivalent of the Woodstock festival to a burgeoning generation of hard rock and heavy metal fans. The Jam took place at the Ontario Motor Speedway in Ontario, California on a hot and sunny spring day on April 6, '74. The event attracted an enormous crowd of a quarter-million people and represented a baptism of fire - in more ways than one - for Purple's 'new boys', frontman David Coverdale and bassist/vocalist Glenn Hughes, who in '73 had replaced Ian Gillan and Roger Glover, respectively, to usher in the band's so-called Mk III line-up.

Lukather, Steve & Edgar Winter - Live At North Sea Festival DVD $17.99
Recorded live at the North Sea Jazz Festival in The Hague on July 14th 2000. When these two extraordinary musicians, Steve Lukather and Edgar Winter, came together on stage at the North Sea Festival 2000, they had already achieved legendary careers in their own right. Together with Phil Soussan (Bass) and Gary Ferguson (Drums) the concert at the North Sea Jazz Festival was not only a firework of improvisation, but an intense demonstration of the perfection and skills of Lukather and Winter.  Feeling totally free from stylistic barriers, this concert is a perfect symbiosis of these two talents, presenting the best of Winter's collection ('Fly Away,' 'Frankenstein') and some breathtaking highlights penned by Lukather (as exemplified in his tearful tribute to Toto drummer Jeff Porcarco in 'Song for Jeff').  A specific standout among the many other highlights of this concert is the medley of rock'n roll classics. Summing up the genius of these two outstanding artists, their improvising on songs such as 'Johnny B Good' and 'Whole Lotta Shakin' Going On' remaining as colorful, fresh and dynamic, never to be heard before.  A brilliant evening of musicality quality as you will never experience again.

Santana - Live At The House Of Blues Las Vegas - UK - Import, NTSC Region 0 DVD $19.99
NTSC/Region 0 DVD edition. On March 21st, 2016, a few weeks prior to the release of the Santana IV album, the classic line-up of Santana took to the stage at the House Of Blues in Las Vegas. The show they delivered combined tracks from the new album with the classic hits from the band's first three albums, to which Santana IV is the natural successor. This was a hugely anticipated reunion of a line-up that had not performed and recorded together since the early '70s.

Coltrane, John - Trane 90 - 4PC CD $22.99
Like Parker, Ellington, Davis and Armstrong, Coltrane is a name that requires no forename prefix to identify it's owner as one of the greatest of all jazz icons. It's also a names that instantly conjures a sound: spearing, questing, earnest, deep and intense, that of a man who, in a recorded career of around a dozen years transformed not only his own music but much of the jazz landscape around him. His death, aged 41 in 1967, left an aching chasm at the heart of an art form and nearly fifty years after his passing his legacy continues to inform much of what is thought of as innovative within contemporary jazz. Even more unbelievably, a staggering nine decades have passed since the birth of this still controversial figure, a man whose music continues to generate passionate debate both for and against. Was Coltrane really the last true jazz innovator? Or did he, as some maintain, unhinge a Pandora's Box that has since proved impossible to close, resulting in a fragmentary collapse of the idiom?

Various Artists - Circus Days: Pop Psych Obscurities 1966-1972 / Var - Boxed Set, 6PC CD $33.99

Various Artists - Krautrock & Progressive Box Set / Various - 6PC CD $19.99
Six CD set. The year 1965 suffered an unexpected detour in pop culture: starting the explosion of psychedelia and the influence of Bob Dylan's poetry, rock, as an aesthetic movement, wanted to earn the recognition that genres such as jazz or classical music had. Due to this, many virtuoso performers and complex arrangements and improvisation were incorporated to rock's catalog. That's how psychedelic rock and then progressive rock came to be. Meanwhile in Germany, and influenced by both the English rock and by German avant-garde artists such as Karlheinz Stockhausen, a new way of understand rock music was born, with poetry inspired by outer space and a remarkable use of electronics and experimentation. This musical movement was dubbed by British press as krautrock. The Krautrock And Progressive Rock Box is the definitive album that illustrates both these cultural moments, with a range of artists that never before were compiled together. The Krautrock and Progressive Box is a work of unusual magnitude that will delight not only those experts in the genres, but any fan of rock music.

Band. - The Last Waltz (40th Anniversary Edition) - 2PC CD $19.99
Band. - Last Waltz (40th Anniversary Edition) - With Blu-Ray, Deluxe Edition, 5PC CD $59.99
Digitally remastered two CD edition and deluxe four CD + Blu-ray edition. This 40th Anniversary Deluxe Edition of the original soundtrack has 54 tracks, including the entire concert, as well as rehearsals and outtakes. Original soundtrack to the critically acclaimed concert film. The Last Waltz was a concert by The Band, held on Thanksgiving Day, November 25, 1976, at Winterland Ballroom in San Francisco. The Last Waltz was advertised as the Band.'s farewell concert appearance, and the concert saw the Band joined by more than a dozen special guests, including Bob Dylan, Paul Butterfield, Neil Young, Emmylou Harris, Ringo Starr, Ronnie Hawkins, Dr. John, Joni Mitchell, Van Morrison, Muddy Waters, Ronnie Wood, Neil Diamond, Bobby Charles, The Staple Singers, and Eric Clapton. The Band, more than any other group, put rock and roll back in touch with it's roots. With their ageless songs and solid grasp of musical idioms, the Band reached across the decades, making connections for a generation that was, as an era of violent cultural schisms wound down, in desperate search of them. They projected a sense of community in the turbulent late '60s and early '70s - a time when the fabric of community in the United States was fraying. Guitarist Robbie Robertson drew from history in his evocative, cinematic story-songs, and the vocal triumvirate of bassist Rick Danko, drummer Levon Helm and keyboardist Richard Manuel joined in rustic harmony and traded lines in rich, conversational exchanges. Multi-instrumentalist Garth Hudson provided musical coloration in period styles that evoked everything from rural carnivals of the early 20th century to rock and roll revues of the '50s.

Cale, John - Fragments Of A Rainy Season - 2PC CD $15.99
Fragments Of A Rainy Season is the the first live John Cale album to feature him performing solo and "unplugged" - before that term became a mid-'90s buzzword. In contrast to the jaundiced punk truculence of Sabotage/Live (1979) or Even Cowgirls Get the Blues (1986), Fragments gives us Cale at his most melodic and moving, a mellowed and certainly a soberer man in a Yamamoto jacket and a lopsided haircut running through a selection of his prettiest songs. The album features incredible versions of "Paris 1919," "Dying On The Vine," "Chinese Envoy," cover versions of the Elvis classic "Heartbreak Hotel," his devastating treatment of Leonard Cohen's "Hallelujah" and a suite of Dylan Thomas' works "On A Wedding Anniversary," "Lie Still, Sleep Becalmed" and "Do Not Go Gentle Into That Good Night."

Canned Heat - Future Blues - Bonus Tracks, Expanded Version CD $15.99
Digitally remastered edition of this 1970 album from the blues rockers. Canned Heat approached their fifth studio album with great care following the disappointing sales of the album Hallelujah. Despite some great material the band had failed to come up with a hit to follow up the chart success of 'On The Road Again' and 'Going Up the Country'. They approached the songs on this album with great care and when they covered Wilbert Harrison's 'Let's Work Together' they were sure that they had another hit on their hands. The boogie and jams remained but they were now more concise. Henry Vestine had left the band and Harvey Mandel had joined as lead guitarist. The band with Mandel had caused a stir when they played the Woodstock festival among others in the summer of 1969. Sadly, Alan Wilson would pass away shortly after the completion of Future Blues. This edition of this great album features a true stereo version of the hit single 'Let's Work Together', as well as the long version that remained unreleased for years. First time U.S. release with all new mastering and liner notes.

International dark rock collective Crippled Black Phoenix return with the towering new full-length 'Bronze'. On 'Bronze', Crippled Black Phoenix meld dark psychedelia, haunting post-rock, Victorian and Gothic influences, progressive tendencies and classic heavy rock into one of the most unique sounds in the world. 'Bronze' is more than just music; it teems with a dark sensuality and the simmering rage of people longing to feel; tearing themselves away from the modern dystopian nightmare at any cost. Epic tracks such as "Deviant Burials", "No Fun", "Rotten Memories", "Turn to Stone" and the haunting "Goodbye Then" are just part of the amazing onslaught 'Bronze' contains. Crippled Black Phoenix are the antidote to the tepid dross that modern music has become, and 'Bronze' arguably the most vital in their canon of true protest music against a world gone mad.

Rik Emmett and his new band, RESolution9 release RES 9 via Mascot Label Group/Provogue. Much of the album was recorded and mixed at the famed MetalWorks Studios, where Rik re-connected to his own roots. In fact, the other two founding members of Triumph (Gil Moore and Mike Levine) reunite with Rik as special guests on "The Grand Parade," a song that conjures 1979's "Suitcase Blues."

The journey of Neal Morse has seen three decades of musical accomplishments, the latest being the inception of THE NEAL MORSE BAND. The Los Angeles born Prog-Rocker Neal Morse (Spock's Beard, Flying Colors, and Transatlantic) has forged many relationships over the years. The most compelling and fruitful efforts have been those with Mike Portnoy (ex-Dream Theater, The Winery Dogs, Twisted Sister, Transatlantic, Flying Colors, and more). As Neal Morse explains, "THE SIMILITUDE OF A DREAM is loosely and sometimes directly based on the book, Pilgrim's Progress by John Bunyan. The original title was The Pilgrim's Progress From This World To The That Which Is To Come; Delivered Under The Similitude Of A Dream, and it was originally published in 1678.

Guitarist David Gilmour joined in December 1967; Barrett left in April 1968 due to deteriorating mental health.

Queen - Queen On Air - CD $22.99
Queen - Queen On Air - (6 PC) CD $54.99
Two CD and deluxe six CD edition. Queen's meteoric ascendancy during the 1970s has been well documented. From their gloriously ambitious self-titled debut album of 1973 through to the album that put them in the superstar bracket, 1975's A Night At The Opera, and beyond, this unique group carved out a singular path as the most visionary, inventive and charismatic band of that epic decade. But there is another side to Queen's rise that has been largely overlooked. Between February 1973 and October 1977, the band recorded six radio sessions exclusively for the BBC. The twenty four recordings these landmark sessions produced include alternate versions of the debut single, unique takes of classic album tracks and even a radically reworked reimagining of one of their best known anthems that has never previously appeared on any Queen studio release. Now, for the very first time, all six Queen BBC sessions - meticulously restored by Queen engineer Kris Fredriksson and mastered by Grammy Award winner Adam Ayan - have been brought together on Queen On Air. Queen On Air is more than just a collection of rare recordings, it is a glorious snapshot of the growth of a legend.

Sun Ra - SUN RA Singles the Definitive 45's Collection 1952 - 1991 - With Booklet, 3PC CD $17.99
SUN RA Singles the Definitive 45's Collection 1952 - 1991 - Strut presents a new definitive collection of Singles released by jazz maverick Sun Ra during his Earth years, spanning 1952 to 1991. Released prolifically during the 1950s and more sporadically thereafter, primarily on the Saturn label, the 45s offer one-off meteorites from Ra's prolific cosmic journey, tracing the development of his forward-thinking "Space-Bop" and his unique take on jazz and blues traditions which sounded unlike anything else from the period. As with his LPs, most 45s were only pressed in small runs and were sold at gigs and have since become extremely rare and sought after. Only a small handful of copies of "Love In Outer Space" b/w "Mayan Temple" and "The Blue One" b/w "Orbitration In Blue" have ever been seen; some have only been discovered in physical form in recent years; some were planned and penciled in but allegedly never made it to vinyl (including "Saturn" and "Velvet" from the Jazz In Silhouette LP) and some appeared as limited one-off magazine singles and posthumous releases, including "Hell #1" aka "Out There A Minute." The set is the most comprehensive collection of Ra's singles to date. Sleeve note writers Francis Gooding and Paul Griffiths brilliantly illustrate the role of the single within Ra's career and break down each release with detailed track by track notes. Working with Sun Ra LLC and Sun Raarchivist Michael D. Anderson, Strut has also assembled the best possible master sources for each track.
