Klaus Schulze/Deus Arrakis ....CD $18.99

Klaus Schulze/Deus Arrakis ....CD $18.99

Composer, musician and producer Klaus Schulze rolls out his extensive sounds, plays his legendary sequences and creates this unique 'Schulze atmosphere' for more than 50 years now. With "Deus Arrakis" the electronic legend now presents his new studio album. Through his collaboration with Hans Zimmer for the Oscar-winning soundtrack to the remake of the classic film 'Dune,' desert fever has broken out again in Klaus Schulze. "I needed more of that 'Spice,'" Schulze recounts. "From there I felt completely unleashed and just played and played... at the end of that second private 'Dune' journey I realized: 'Deus Arrakis' became another salute to Frank Herbert and to that great gift of life in general." Since his beginnings in bands like 'Tangerine Dream' and 'Ash Ra Tempel' or in his over 50 solo albums from 'Irrlicht' to Mirage,' 'X' and 'Dune' to 'Farscape,' 'Kontinuum,' Silhouettes' and now 'Deus Arrakis,' in his productions under the pseudonym 'Richard Wahnfried' or the numerous film scores and collaborations with artists like Arthur Brown, Michael Shrieve, Rainer Bloss, Lisa Gerrard or most recently Hans Zimmer: Klaus Schulze has always remained true to his unmistakable way of creating music and yet always remained open to the new, the innovative, the experimental.

Stomu Yamashta/Seasons: The Island Albums 1972-1976 ....import 7 CD Box Set $59.99

The first ever boxed set celebrating the work of Stomu Yamashta for Island Records between 1972 and 1976. Remastered set including the albums 'Floating Music,' 'The Man from the East,' 'Freedom Is Frightening,' 'One By One,' 'Raindog,' 'Go' And 'Go... Live from Paris.' Featuring Steve Winwood, Klaus Schulze, Michael Shrieve, Al Di Meola, Hugh Hopper, Gary Boyle, Morris Pert and more. Born in Kyoto, Japan, Yamashta studied music at Kyoto University and Berklee College of Music. His athletic and virtuoso percussion style came to prominence in the early 1970s when his work with the Red Buddha Theatre brought him to Europe. He teamed up with percussionist Morris Pert and members of his band Come to the Edge to record the album 'Floating Music' for Island Records in 1972. This was followed in 1973 by the release of the soundtrack album 'The Man from the East,' which also featured Morris Pert and keyboard player Peter Robinson. Later the same year Yamashta formed the band East Wind with Gary Boyle (guitar), Hugh Hopper (bass) and Brian Gascoigne (keyboards) and recorded the excellent jazz rock album 'Freedom Is Frightening.' This was followed in 1974 by another soundtrack work, 'One By One,' also featuring a fine ensemble of acclaimed jazz and rock musicians. The 1975 album 'Raindog'was met with critical acclaim and featured vocal contributions from singer Murray Head. 1976 would see Yamashta's work reach an ever wider public thanks to his contribution to the soundtrack of the film The Man Who Fell to Earth (starring David Bowie) and the release of his concept album 'Go.' The outstanding record saw him assemble a cast of outstanding musicians such as Steve Winwood (vocals, keyboards), Michael Shrieve (drums), Al Di Meola (guitar), Pat Thrall (guitar), Klaus Schulze (synthesisers) and Rosko Gee (bass). Featuring stunning arrangements by Paul Buckmaster, the album's fusion of rock, jazz and electronics was greeted with much acclaim. The success of 'Go,' led to a series of live concerts in Europe featuring the musicians who had appeared on the album. A concert at the Palais des Sports in Paris in June 1976 was recorded and released later that year.

David Bowie/Buddha of Suburbia [2021 Remaster] ....CD $15.99

Buddha of Suburbia [2021 Remaster] - Originally released on November 8, 1993, The Buddha of Suburbia is David Bowie's 19th studio album. After meeting with Hanif Kureishi, author of the 1990 novel of the same name, Bowie decided to score a British television adaptation of Kureishi's novel. The soundtrack album was poorly promoted and fell into obscurity, until it was reissued in 2007. It is one of Bowie's least known works, yet it is also one of his most innovative and captivating.

David Bowie/1. Outside (The Nathan Adler Diaries: A Hyper Cycle) [2021 Remaster] ....CD $15.99

In the cyber-drenched 1990s, David Bowie once again proves himself ahead of the game. Outside is more a monumental collage of techno-war coldness than a mere album. Bowie combines the most essential pieces of each of his previous personas and musical styles to make Outside into an all-too-dense song-cycle with a story-line.

David Bowie/Earthling [2021 Remaster] ....CD $15.99

Earthling [2021 Remaster] - Earthling is the twentieth studio album by David Bowie released in February 1997 via Virgin Records, later reissued on BMG Records. This was the first album Bowie self-produced since his 1974 album Diamond Dogs. Bowie's 1970s experiments in dance music, art-rock and other space-age pop forms helped lay the groundwork for modern styles like ambient and techno and here he comes full circle picking styles and ideas from those he heavily influenced.

David Bowie/'hours...' [2021 Remaster] ....CD $15.99

David Bowie/'hours...' [2021 Remaster] ....CD $15.99

'hours...' is the 22nd studio album by Bowie, originally released on October 4, 1999, is Bowie's most fearlessly autobiographical works to date. Written solely with longtime collaborator Reeves Gabrels, 'hours...' evoked the bare-bones aesthetic and raw personal nature of the Hunky Dory era - that brief window between the emergence of Bowie's singular songwriting voice and the coming creation of the personae through which it would be filtered. On emotionally charged tracks such as "Thursday's Child, " "Survive" and "The Pretty Things Are Going to Hell, " 'hours...' employs bold introspection in delivering it's deeply personal yet ultimately universal impact.

David Bowie/Toy ....CD $15.99

Toy was recorded following David's Glastonbury 2000 performance. Bowie entered the studio with his band to record new interpretations of songs he'd first recorded from 1964-1971. The plan was to record the album "old school" with the band playing live, choose the best takes and then release it as soon as humanly possible. Unfortunately, in 2001 the concept of the "surprise drop" album release and the technology to support it were still quite a few years off, making it impossible to release Toy at the time.

Neil Young + Promise of the Real/Noise & Flowers ....CD $18.99

Neil Young + Promise of the Real announce a new live album, Noise & Flowers, that captures the group in all their glory on their 2019 European tour. The release will be accompanied by a similarly titled concert film that's included in the album's 2xLP+CD Deluxe Edition. Noise & Flowers documents a 9-date tour that began just two weeks after Young's lifetime friend and manager of more than 50 years, Elliot Roberts, passed away at age 76. Performing alongside a photograph of Roberts taped to his road case, Young approached each show as a celebratory memorial service to honor his late friend. It's a trek the legendary singer/songwriter describes as "wondrous." "Playing in his memory [made it] one of the most special tours ever," Young says in the album's liner notes. "We hit the road and took his great spirit with us into every song. This music belongs to no one. It's in the air. Every note was played for music's great friend, Elliot." In paying tribute to the manager who guided Young's career for over a half-century, Noise & Flowers explores all corners of his vast discography. It balances all-timer anthems ("Mr. Soul," "Helpless," "Rockin' in the Free World") with rarely aired '70s deep cuts ("Field of Opportunity," "On the Beach") and '90s gems ("From Hank to Hendrix," "Throw Your Hatred Down"). His frequent backing band since 2015, Promise of the Real effectively bridges the extremes in Young's sound, infusing his raging rockers and country serenades with their casual brilliance and telepathic intuition.

Keef Hartley Band/Sinnin' for You: The Albums 1969-1973 ....import 7 CD Box Set $67.99

A new seven disc boxed set anthology celebrating the music of Keef Hartley. Featuring 67 tracks including the albums 'Halfbreed,' 'The Battle of North West Six,' 'The Time Is Near,' 'Overdog,' 'Little Big Band,' 'Seventy Second Brave' and 'Lancashire Hustler.' With 15 bonus tracks drawn from rare live recordings and singles, all newly remastered, including an illustrated book with essay. Keef Hartley first came to prominence as a member of the British R&B group The Artwoods before joining John Mayall's Bluesbreakers in 1967 before leaving to form the first line-up of his own band. With Miller Anderson (guitar, vocals), Gary Thain (bass), Peter Dines (keyboards), Spit James (guitar) and a horn section that was a "who's who" of British jazz (Henry Lowther, Chris Mercer, Lyn Dobson and Harry Beckett), Hartley recorded his first album for Decca's Deram label in March 1969. Now regarded as a classic of the genre, 'Halfbreed' was a fine example of the fusion of rock, jazz and blues which would become the blueprint of the Keef Hartley Band. 'The Battle of North West Six,' issued in October 1969, heralded a period of popularity for the band on the live circuit and followed a US tour which saw the band perform at the Woodstock Festival. 'The Time Is Near,' issued in the Spring of 1970, was one of the band's most successful albums, while 'Overdog,' issued in 1971, headed in a rock direction and was perhaps the band's best album featuring such classic tracks as 'Roundabout' and 'Theme Song / en Route' with a guest appearance by Jon Hiseman of Colosseum. Following the album's release Hartley formed his own big band with a large horn section and performed a series of oncerts, including a show at the Marquee Club in London which was released as the album 'Little Big Band.' By this time, Miller Anderson had departed to pursue a solo career. The 1972 album 'Seventy Second Brave' would feature contributions from a variety of musicians and would be the last album to feature Gary Thain on bass before his departure to Uriah Heep. Hartley's final album for Deram was 1973's 'Lancashire Hustler,' a fine record which featured guest appearances by Robert Palmer, Elkie Brooks and other members of Vinegar Joe.

Bachdenkel/Rise & Fall: The Anthology ....import 3 CD Set $39.99

First-ever complete anthology of melodic UK progressive rock band Bachdenkel who issued two superb albums in the '70s. Includes numerous previously-unreleased studio out-takes and live cuts plus late '60s psych-pop demos under the previous name U-No-Who. Dubbed "Britain's greatest unknown group" in late 1970 by the former editor of the International Times' music section, Bachdenkel would remain a cult act, their brace of albums belatedly attracting the attention of collectors and the admiration of fellow musicians like the band Mercury Rev. Having come together in Birmingham in 1968, Bachdenkel were initially part of the burgeoning local underground scene, but would spend most of their career in France. In June 1970 they booked time at a studio in Paris to record debut album 'Lemmings.' Sessions took on prodigious proportions, but with an acceptable UK/US major label deal failing to materialize, the record was only issued in France some three years later. The late 1975 recording of second album 'Stalingrad' was a less complicated experience, but it again proved difficult to place. Eventually the set was self-issued in 1977, when its appearance unfortunately coincided with the punk explosion. A three-CD set, 'Rise and Fall' is the first complete anthology of this ill-fated but hugely talented band. It features both of their albums and adds contemporaneous out-takes, alternative versions, demos and live cuts as well as some 1967-68 demo recordings by pre-Bachdenkel outfit U-No-Who, who briefly attracted the interest of the newly-formed Apple organization.

With its liquid melodies, textures, hypnotic patterns, and pulsations subtly influenced by music of many cultures, it's an ideal introduction to his unique body of work. At different times Tibbetts might seem closer to minimalism, alternate rock, or ambient music, yet his artistic signature is unmistakable.

Tangerine Dream/Shy People [Original Motion Picture Soundtrack] ....CD $17.99

Dragon's Domain Records is excited to bring Shy People back into the marketplace, newly remastered by Digital Outland with previously unreleased bonus tracks. The booklet includes exclusive liner notes written by author Randall Larson, with the participation of composer Paul Haslinger and music editior Virginia Ellsworth. To score Shy People, director Andrei Konchalovski, who was a classically trained musician himself, was looking for someone to create an extra dimension through the music that would enhance the visual qualities of his film. Konchalovsky flew to West Berlin and met with band members Edgar Froese, Christopher Franke and Paul Haslinger in their studio to discuss in detail his preferences for the music, staying for several weeks as the process developed. When scoring films in their Berlin studio in those days Tangerine Dream would deliver their finished music mix to the production company and from then on wouldn't be involved with the final mix. In Shy People's case, it was left to Konchalovsky and supervising music editor Virginia Ellsworth and her team (assistant music editors Robin Katz and John Ganem) to edit the tracks and place them against scenes that Konchalovsky felt they'd be most effective. The band would be responsible for shaping the music into a listenable presentation. The score for Near Dark was produced around the same time as Shy People and both scores show a remarkable growth in the evolution of the band's sound.

Ed Wynne's 2022 solo album Tumbling through the Floativerse sees Ed teaming up with Gre Vanderloo (Gracerooms). "I've always enjoyed the synth orientated musical worlds he creates with his project Gracerooms," says Ed of his new collaborator. "Shortly before lockdown 2020, whilst making the early stages of the recent Ozric Tentacles album Space for the Earth, we decided to try and make some tunes together. Gre came over from Holland where he lives to the Blue Bubble Studio here in Fife and we started recording pretty much straight away. We ended up with about six definite starting points, which then developed and unfolded into a harmonic realm we referred to as 'The Floativerse' -  a place where you might escape gravity for a moment." Featuring guest appearances from Gracerooms bassist, Paul Klaessen and longterm Ozrics synth player Silas Neptune, the album was recorded at Ozrics head quarters; Blue Bubble Studios, engineered and produced by Ed Wynne and mastered by Adam Goodlet. The mind-bending artwork comes courtesy of Valerie Fangman.

Amon Duul/Paradieswarts Duul ....import CD $18.99

Paradieswarts Duul is a 1970 psychedelic rock album by the German band Amon Duul. It was the final Amon Duul (I) album to be recorded. In contrast to the communal, free-form improvisations of the earlier Amon Duul albums (generally thought to have all been recorded in a single "jam session" with various commune members coming and going throughout), Paradieswarts Duul was recorded with a smaller, more stable lineup of musicians. The pastoral, folk-influenced sound of the record has been compared to the gentler work of American bands Love and The Velvet Underground. The first word of the title is a German construction meaning "paradise-wards", as in "towards paradise." Though the groups had split apart some years before due to differing musical aims, the album features contributions from Amon Duul II members John Weinzierl and Chris 'Shrat' Thiele on the track "Paramechanische Welt." In turn Rainer and Ulrich of Amon Duul (I) had appeared on the track "Sandoz in the Rain" on Amon Duul II's album Yeti, recorded the same year.

Faust/The Faust Tapes ....import CD $19.99

Reissue, originally released in 1973. There's something perversely fabulous about the thought of this warped masterwork wandering into 60,000 unsuspecting British homes in 1973. Faust's second-and-a-half album hit the shops to celebrate their signing to the nascent Virgin Records, who were looking to take advantage of the zeitgeist for German music at that time. Undeterred by the fact the band's unwillingness to engage with the commercial landscape had seen them dropped from Polydor, Branson and company cooked up a suitably spectacular marketing strategy, selling the LP for 49p, the bargain price of a single. What was lurking within the grooves was a condensed collage of outtakes, oddities, sketches and samples previously known to the band's nearest and dearest as The Faust Party Tapes - and how you wish you'd been to those parties. Cacophonous keys and roaring drones splinter into a deranged hybrid of tumbling toms and yelping vocals; committed experimentalism which in no way prepares you for the beautiful ballad which follows. Armed with acoustic guitar, playful piano and panning vocals, Faust fashion a pastoral idyll imbued with the most profound yearning.

O.R.k./Inflamed Rides ....CD $14.99

Re-released on KScope. Drawing on the singular talents of vocalist Lorenzo Esposito Fornasari (Berserk!, Obake), guitarist Carmelo Pipitone and a rhythm section comprising Pat Mastelotto (King Crimson) and Colin Edwin (Porcupine Tree), Inflamed Rides is an intriguing collaborative debut release which defies easy categorization. A primordial and energetic fusion of playful acoustic psychedelia, precise math rock and intense ambient electronica, O.R.k provide a soundscape rich with controlled chaos. 'A forward-thinking punch in the face of complacency!' - O.R.k.

Primus/Conspiranoid ....EP CD $12.99

The first, completely original Primus music in over a decade comes in the form of a 3-song EP. It kicks off with the 12-minute epic, "Conspiranoia," exploring the absurdity and darkness bubbling up in the contemporary world, perpetuated, as frontman Les Claypool says, "by anyone with a slight hint of web design aptitude." He goes on, "Because all three songs were bred in an odd time of divide, confusion, angst, frustration, and social senility, the title 'Conspiranoid' seemed appropriate."

Greenslade/Time and Tide [Remastered Expanded Edition] ....import 2 CD Set $22.99

Esoteric re-press of this 2019 release.  Esoteric Recordings is proud to announce the release of a newly re-mastered and expanded 2 CD edition of the classic 1975 album, Time and Tide by Greenslade. Formed in 1972 by former Colosseum keyboard player Dave Greenslade, the band also featured former Web and Samurai member Dave Lawson (keyboards, vocals), former Colosseum bass player Tony Reeves and drummer Andrew McCulloch (formerly with King Crimson and Fields). The calibre of the members of Greenslade ensured that the group would be innovative, ground breaking and dynamic in their musical approach and would also be notable due to the absence of a guitarist within their ranks. Following the release of the album Spyglass Guest, Tony Reeves departed the band and was replaced by Martin Briley, who was to feature on the band's next album. Originally issued in May 1975, Time and Tide was the band's final album of the 1970s and was a fine record that featured such compositions as 'Flattery Stakes,' 'Waltz for a Fallen Idol,' 'Newsworth' and 'The Ass's Ears.' Considered by many to be a band at their finest on stage, this expanded edition of Time and Tide includes a bonus CD featuring a superb sixty-minute concert recorded for Swedish Radio in March 1975 in Stockholm, re-mastered from the original Swedish Radio master tapes, offering a glimpse of the excellence of this short-lived line-up of band in a live environment and released officially for the very first time. This Esoteric Recordings expanded edition has been newly re-mastered from the original master tapes and features an illustrated booklet and includes an essay by Malcolm Dome and exclusive interviews with Dave Greenslade and Dave Lawson.

Fusion supergroup The Aristocrats collides with the classical Primuz Chamber Orchestra!   Who will survive? "This project began when we randomly stumbled upon a YouTube video of Primuz Chamber Orchestra performing one of our songs as reimagined by composer/arranger Wojtek Lemanski. Their flawless execution of a highly challenging arrangement (which was startlingly inventive and yet remained entirely faithful to the spirit of the original composition!) inspired us to reach out and propose a collaboration. The process ultimately led to this album, which comprises nine trio performances taken from our previous studio albums, remixed by Forrester Savell and transformed by the orchestra's rendition of Wojtek's string arrangements. This approach enabled Wojtek to create orchestrations that treated many of the spontaneous, improvised elements from our original "band in a room" takes as if they had been part of the actual compositions... yielding some unique results! We're truly proud of the way this project turned out... and we're profoundly grateful that serendipity somehow brought us all together for this collaboration. Enjoy!" - The Aristocrats - Bryan Beller (bass), Marco Minnemann (drums) & Govan Guthrie (guitar)

Simon Phillips/Protocol I ....CD $16.99

Originally released in 1989, the first Protocol album became the blueprint for four stellar jazz/fusion records to appear more than 20 years thereafter. These tracks are the original demos on which Simon played all the instruments. His keyboard sound might just remind you of a certain Jan Hammer! Guitar parts were added on just three tunes. Later, a variety of musicians would use the demos as guides to re-interpret the material on future Protocol recordings. While this album was made available as part of Simon's 6-CD box set in 2019, this is the first time it has been reissued as a stand-alone CD. (And yes, it is different than the streaming version, with 5 additional tracks!) Protocol comes in a beautiful 6-panel package, complete with technical liner notes and vintage photos from the maestro himself!

Tony Williams/Play or Die ....CD $18.99

Tony Williams certainly counts among those unique drummers in jazz today, whose work has had a lasting influence on styles and still does. At the tender age of 16, saxophonist Jackie McLean brought him to his band in New York. He also made his first recording with McLean. Soon after, aged 17, Williams was already making a splash in the second Miles Davis Quintet.  Almost twenty years later, in 1980, on May 30 and 31, Tony Williams went to the Zuckerfabrik recording studio in Stuttgart, Germany, together with Tom Grant (keyboards, synthesizer, he joined this band on the recommendation of Jeff Lorber) and Patrick O'Hearn (bass, synthesizer, from Missing Persons and Frank Zappa). In the 1970s and early 1980s, this studio was an illustrious address for audio productions of all kinds. Larry Coryell, Wolfgang Dauner, Stephane Grappeli, Elvin Jones, Martin Kolbe + Ralf Illenberger, Volker Kriegel, Alphonse Mouzon, John Scofield and the United Jazz + Rock Ensemble recorded there, to name just a few. Tony Williams and Peter Schnyder co-produced the recording. The album was recorded in just two days and mixed right there in the studio. This timeless album, released in an edition of only 500 copies, was hardly promoted at the time and may therefore have remained unknown to one or the other. All the better that now for the first time since the release of the vinyl it is also available on CD, with a significantly improved sound.

The fifth album from Bill Bruford's Earthworks, originally released in 1999. Featuring pianist Steve Hamilton who trained in the US, and played with Bobby Hutcherson, Freddie Hubbard and Gary Burton among others; with Patrick Clahar, the fast-rising London tenorist best known for his work with Incognito, and Mark Hodgson on bass. Following his mid '90s sojourn with King Crimson, drummer Bill Bruford returned to the scene with his fully-acoustic Earthworks Mark II, which hit the ground running in 1999 with 'A Part and Yet Apart.' Having effectively jettisoned electronic percussion Earthworks revisited the acoustic sax-piano-bass-drums line up with it's muscular, visceral acoustic fusion. This album has been out of print for some time and this re-release is on Bruford's own Summerfold Records and was overseen personally by Bill Bruford.

Larry Coryell: Guitar virtuoso, performer and composer of jazz and jazz- rock. Master of guitar improvisation, known in the jazz world as the "Godfather of Fusion." Larry's highly acclaimed improvised guitar stylings and compositions positioned him as one of the first innovators of the jazz-rock fusion movement in the late 1960s. A true legend and well established in the history books of jazz music, Larry knew and played with many of the well known jazz and rock greats of the 20th and 21st Centuries such as Jimi Hendrix, Eric Clapton, Chet Atkins, Chico Hamilton, Gary Burton, Chick Corea and Miles Davis. Larry's "Last Swing in Ireland" was his last visit to the Emerald Aisle and he made a lasting impression at Hellfire Studios and The Sugar Club with his favorite Irish rhythm section, Kevin Brady and Dave Redmond in May of 2016. They rock and they swing and everything in between.

The line-up includes Jennifer Batten (female guitar player who did three tours with Michael Jackson). 'Who Else!' marks an impressive return by the master of guitar after an hiatus of ten years. "What Mamma Said" is an explosive opener to an explosive album. Here we are introduced to Jennifer Batten, Jeff's composing and second guitarist/midi keyboard partner. The second track, "Psycho Sam" could not have been named more perfectly. "Brush with the Blues," the third song, is arguably one of the best tracks of Jeff's entire career. "Hip-Notica" is a fun tune and features some excellent organ-midi work by Ms. Batten.

Big in Japan was recorded in Japan in 2010, it clearly shows that while generally speaking, he's who he always was, his music has evolved over time.

Steeleye Span are amongst the biggest and most commercially successful folk rock bands. Their career, spanning over 50 years, has seen them achieve 4 Top 40 albums and 2 Top 20 singles as well as countless sold out live shows. Through an everchanging line up, their popularity has continued to this day. This collection brings together their recordings over an 11 year tenure with Chrysalis Records covering the years 1972-1983. Housed in a clamshell box with a 56 page perfect bound book, there are 145 tracks, (46 unreleased) over 12 CDs include a number of unreleased studio tracks including an expanded version of New York Girls (featuring Peter Sellers), a studio take of The Devil's Dream, three previously unavailable additional live tracks from the "Live at Last" album, an Australian only live album, as well as two completely new live concerts from The Rainbow Theatre in London from 1974 and the Boston Berklee Performance Centre from 1976. The Rainbow show in particular has been the subject of much speculation with a small selection of tracks appearing on various low quality bootlegs over the years. The band are undertaking a (delayed) 50 year celebratory UK tour with 17 dates in May and a further 7 dates in October.

New thre CD clamshell boxed set of the albums and singles by the band babe ruth recorded for the harvest label between 1972 and 1975. Featuring the albums 'First Base,' 'Amar Caballero' and 'Babe Ruth.' Newly remastered from the original Harvest master tapes with an illustrated booklet featuring an essay. Babe Ruth was formed in Hatfield in 1970 by guitarist Alan Shacklock and featured vocalist Janita "Jenny" Haan, bassist Dave Hewitt and drummer Jeff Allen. Their unique brand of soulful progressive rock soon gained many admirers and in 1972 they signed a contract with EMI Records' progressive imprint, Harvest. By this time Jeff Allen had departed and Dick Powell joined on drums. The band's line-up was also expanded by the arrival of keyboard player Dave Punshon. Babe Ruth stood out from many of their labelmates, partly due to Haan's vocals and through the band's ability to generate a soulful edge to their music. Their debut album, 'First Base' was issued in 1972 and featured the classic tracks 'Wells Fargo' and 'The Mexican' which gained considerable air play in Canada and the USA, but the record inexplicably failed to match this success in the UK. The arrival of Chris Holmes on keyboards and new drummer Ed Spevock in 1974 saw them follow their debut with 'Amar Caballero,' before the band's final album for Harvest in 1975, the eponymous 'Babe Ruth' which was a hit in the USA and Canada and featured the band's memorable cover of the theme from the film A Fistful Of Dollars and the Curtis Mayfield composition 'We People Darker Than Blue.' Soon after the album's release Alan Shacklock departed the band (to be replaced by Bernie Marsden) and Babe Ruth moved labels to Capitol Records.

Snowy White/Driving on the 44 ....CD $17.99

Snowy White is one of a handful of classic blues-orientated British electric guitar players - musicians whose sound, technique and style has echoed the originality of the blues with the excitement of contemporary rock. He has developed his own style of 'English' blues, a combination of clear, clean blues phrases and harder-edged riffs that are a recognizable feature of his very personal songs. In the Autumn of 1976 he was invited to tour America and Europe with Pink Floyd as their first augmenting musician, a gig which took up most of his time throughout 1977. In 1979, Peter Green decided to head for the studio once more and invited Snowy and his band along to jam. The result was the album entitled 'In the Skies,' now something of a collector's item. He was then asked by Pink Floyd to go to America to rehearse their new show entitled 'The Wall,' and at the same time Thin Lizzy invited him to become a full-time member. Snowy stayed with the band for nearly three years of touring, recording 'Chinatown' and 'Renegade' with them in 1982, before leaving to pursue his solo career. Snowy's first solo album was entitled 'White Flames.' This album included the timeless 'Bird of Paradise,' written by Snowy which became a hit single around the world. Every year from1999 to 2014 Snowy toured the world with Roger Waters, including the 'The Dark Side of the Moon' and massive 'The Wall' tour. In between tours, he founded the Snowy White Blues Project. Driving on the 44 is Snowy's brand new album, featuring 10 tracks of the best in modern blues-rock. Featuring Thomas White - drums, percussion; Max Middleton - piano, Rhodes, strings; Ferry Lagendijk - Hammond, Rhodes.

Philip Glass/Symphony No. 12 >>Lodger<< ....CD $22.99

Symphony No.12 "Lodger" represents the conclusion of a thirty year artistic collaboration for Philip Glass using elements of music and texts by David Bowie and Brian Eno. It premiered in January 2019 with vocalist Angelique Kidjo, organist James McVinnie and John Adams conducting the Los Angeles Philharmonic. Philip Glass began his path as a composer of symphonies in 1992 at age of 55 with "Low Symphony" based on music by Bowie and Eno. It was followed in 1995 by Symphony No.4 "Heroes" also based solely on the music of Bowie and Eno. Over two decades later, after Bowie's death in 2016, Glass returned to the idea of concluding the trilogy by approaching the album Lodger as a symphonic subject. This world-premiere recording from Filharmonie Brno and conductor Dennis Russell Davies features Angelique Kidjo and organist Christian Schmitt and includes a 24-page booklet including photos, the complete lyrics, and essays.

K. Leimer/The Starting Errors ....CD $16.99

K. Leimer/The Starting Errors ....CD $16.99

K. Leimer's The Starting Errors serves as a handy index of catastrophes. The album documents the way in which the repetition of unexamined cultural behaviors spread as established-even acceptable-practice in the service of the few, no matter how damaging and destructive those practices prove. Music of conscience and consequence set within a general theme of things-gone-wrong, the album is built around a set of errors carefully indexed by the title track: a text-centric piece read by Tallula Bentley, exhibiting an ideological kinship with the work of Henry Cow, here set in an orchestral pastiche. Vocal works are rare for Leimer, but using spoken words in addition to instrumental voices was the most direct path to making his views explicit. Throughout the album techniques surface from jazz-inflected improvisation to classic tape manipulation to granular processing and chamber ensemble airiness. The results catalog most of Leimer's long history of sonic preoccupations, embracing broken song structures, dark ambience, noise, calamitous repetition, and modular constructs. He describes it this way: "The goal was to use a wide range of approaches, techniques and voicing to best express the subject matter of each piece. And, despite the thematic unity, the pieces evolved in many directions."

Pete Bardens/Long Ago, Far Away - The Recordings 1969-1971 ....import 2 CD Set $24.99

Newly remastered 2 CD release anthology of Camel member Peter Bardens' recorded work issued between 1969 and 1971. Prior to Bardens joining Andrew Latimer, Andy Ward and Doug Ferguson to form Camel, he had recorded a single in 1969 with his band Village (also featuring Bill Porter on drums and future Elvis Costello & The Attractions' member Bruce Thomas on bass) for the short-lived Head Records label. In 1970 Bardens signed to Transatlantic and recorded his debut solo album 'The Answer' featuring Bruce Thomas, guitarist Andy Gee and Reg Isadore on drums, plus an uncredited Peter Green guesting on guitar. The album included the long opus 'Homage to the God of Light,' later performed by Camel in their live sets. In 1971, Bardens recorded his second, eponymous solo album with a band featuring Reg Isadore, Vic Linton (guitar), Victor Brox (electric violin) and John Owen (bass). 'Peter Bardens' did much to enhance Bardens' reputation as a musician and composer. The music on both of Bardens' solo albums mapping the route that he would take as a member of Camel. This 2 CD remastered anthology gathers together all the material recorded for Transatlantic Records (including the studio out-take 'Long Ago, Far Away' recorded during sessions for 'The Answer'), both sides of the rare single by Village originally issued in 1969 and both sides of a rare French single of 'Homage to the God of Light.'

From Repertoire comes the first studio album from the new Colosseum line-up featuring Chris Farlowe, Clem Clempson and Mark Clarke together with new members Kim Nishikawara (saxophone), Nick Steed (Keyboards) and Malcolm Mortimore (drums). Recorded in London and New York during 2021 and produced by Clem Clempson and Mark Clarke, Restoration comprises ten brand new tracks. Originally formed in 1968 by ex-New Jazz Orchestra members Jon Hiseman (drums), Dick Heckstall-Smith (saxophones) and Dave Greenslade (keyboards), Colosseum were at the forefront of the jazz/prog rock vanguard. Hugely innovative and dynamic live, the band broke up in 1971, only to reform in 1994 for a series of tours and new albums which lasted into the 2000s. Fast forward to 2022 and Colosseum will be on the road again with a new line-up comprising original frontman Chris Farlowe, guitarist Clem Clempson and bassist Mark Clarke. Joining on Hammond organ, piano, synths and vocals is Nick Steed, keyboard wizard and songwriter whose previous credits include Van Morrison, PP Arnold, Chris Farlowe and Sonja Kristina. One of Canada's top saxophone players, Kim Nishikawara has been in great demand as a blues/jazz saxophonist, working with Jack Bruce, Alan Price, Maggie Bell and Chris Farlowe. Kim is thrilled to be stepping into the role formerly held by one of his great heroes, Dick Heckstall-Smith. Completing the new line-up on drums is Malcolm Mortimore, whose drumming style has been described as "free, quirky and complex," and who was a member of legendary prog band Gentle Giant, as well as playing with Arthur Brown, Van Morrison and many jazz legends including Barney Kessel, Charlie Byrd, Buddy Tate and Oliver Jones.

Embryo/Every Day Is OK ....import CD $22.99

In 1969 the band was founded by multi instrumentalist Christian Burchard (drums, vibraphone, santur, keyboard) and Edgar Hofmann (saxophone, flutes). To date more than 400 musicians have played with the collective, some, such as Charlie Mariano, Trilok Gurtu, Ramesh Shotham, Marty Cook, Yuri Parfenov, Allan Praskin, X.Nie, Nick McCarthy, Monty Waters and Mal Waldron, have played on multiple occasions. Longtime members are Burchard and Hofmann, Dieter Serfas (drums), Roman Bunka (guitar, oud), Uve Mullrich (bass), Michael Wehmeyer (keyboard), Chris Karrer (guitar, oud, violin, sax), Lothar Stahl (marimba, drums), and Jens Polheide (bass, flute). Every Day Is OK was first released in 1980 with the original title of "Anthology." But that was a misleading title as all of the tracks, recorded from 1970 to 1979, had been previously unreleased.

Envy of None/Envy of None ....CD $16.99

2022 release, the debut self-titled album from this band featuring Alex Lifeson (Rush), Andy Curran (Coney Hatch), Alfio Annibalini and singer Maiah Wynne. "One of my favorite things about these songs is the intimacy of them," reveals Maiah Wynne. "It makes them feel different and more honest. There are some heavier songs too, like 'Enemy,' and then tracks like 'Kabul Blues,' that sound completely different to anything else." The album closer, 'Western Sunset,' which was penned by Alex Lifeson in tribute to his dear friend Neil Peart. It's a highly emotive piece of music to honor a man deeply missed by the rock community at large, and even more so by those who were lucky enough to know him. "I visited Neil when he was ill," says Alex Lifeson. "I was on his balcony watching the sunset and found inspiration. There's a finality about a sunset that kinda stayed with me throughout the whole process. It had meaning. It was the perfect mood to decompress after all these different textures... a nice way to close the book."

The band called it 5, fans referred to it as the "Munich Album" and for almost fifty years it's been the missing chapter in Faustian mythology. Now for the first time, the German iconoclasts' previously unreleased fifth album sees the light of day as Punkt. Not only does this title place a bold full stop after the final recording by the group's seminal line up of Peron, Irmler, Sosna, Wusthoff and Diermaier, but it also references the unflinching anarchism of German rock's ultimate outsiders. Punkt is Faust at their most unhindered, untethered and unstoppable.

Mixed and produced by David Singleton from audio restored by Alex R. Mundy and available as a 200g double LP edition and a CD/DVD in digipak with slipcase (the DVD features the material in 24/48 hi-res stereo and DTS-HD Surround Sound (quad, 4.1).

Gentle Giant/Civilian [Expanded] ....CD $16.99

Gentle Giant/Civilian [Expanded] ....CD $16.99

From Alucard Records comes Gentle Giant's last album 'Civilian,' originally released in the spring of 1980 a little over a decade after the band's formation and which, like all their albums, defied categorization. 'Civilian' was the final stage in the Giant's move toward a more concise and direct approach while still maintaining it's musical integrity. It was unique among their albums in that the material was written and recorded in North America. The band recruited Beatles engineer Geoff Emerick to man the console at Sound City and Bijou Studios in Hollywood to record this final album. What emerged from these sessions was a comparatively straightforward high-energy rock album, with hook laden songs and clever choruses.  Despite having paired down earlier characteristic elements, Gentle Giant retained their quintessential brilliant musicianship moving forward into the new decade. As a bonus on this CD, a rare previously unissued track is included. 'Heroes No More' was recorded during the 'Civilian' sessions but failed to appear only because of the need to keep running times down on the old vinyl format. Remastered, it is a fantastic addition to the album. 'Civilian' was the last in a line of strikingly original albums, each with it's own character, but each recorded with the same care and attention to detail. Gentle Giant were a unique proposition, five talented musicians with the ability to blend widely differing musical traditions into a coherent whole. Decades after the initial release of "Civilian' fans of the band old and new have come to realize what an incredibly strong and superbly written and produced album Civilian really was. It is with this knowledge that we are proud to re-release the final album of a truly innovative and original band.

Ghost of the Machine formed in January 2021 when five former members of This Winter Machine - Graham Garbett (guitars), Mark Hagan (keyboards and piano), Stuart McAuley (bass, Moog pedals and Mellotron), Andy Milner (drums) and Scott Owens (guitars) - joined forces with Charlie Bramald (flautist for Nova Cascade, and former lead vocalist for all-eras prog tribute Harmony of Spheres). Taking the best elements from their previous endeavours and key influences such as Rush, Marillion and Genesis, while pushing forward in a heavier, adventurous and exciting direction, Ghost of the Machine spent its first year writing and recording Scissorgames. With the debut album complete, Ghost of the Machine geared up for the release and accompanying performances, bringing its powerful six-piece sound and thrilling, theatrical live show to a stage near you in 2022. There's no doubting the pedigree of Ghost of the Machine; its respective members achieved critical acclaim with their contributions to The Man Who Never Was (2017) and A Tower of Clocks (2019) under the This Winter Machine banner, and Nova Cascade's releases such as A Dictionary of Obscure Sorrows (2019) and Back from the Brink (2021) were warmly received by the progressive music community. The band is confident that Scissorgames will find favour with fans both old and new.

2022 Esoteric repress. Digitally remastered and expanded two CD edition of the classic 1974 album. Formed in 1972 by former Colosseum keyboard player Dave Greenslade, the band also featured former Web and Samurai member Dave Lawson (keyboards, vocals), former Colosseum bass player Tony Reeves and drummer Andrew McCulloch (formerly with King Crimson and Fields). The caliber of the members of Greenslade ensured that the group would be innovative, ground breaking and dynamic in their musical approach and would also be notable due to the absence of a guitarist within their ranks. Originally issued in August 1974, Spyglass Guest was the band's most successful album and featured such classic compositions as 'Joie de Vivre,' 'Spirit of the Dance,' 'Melancholic Race' and the band's interpretation of the Jack Bruce/Pete Brown composition 'Theme for an Imaginary Western.' The album was also notable for the appearance of guitarist Clem Clempson (formerly a member of Colosseum) on 'Little Red Fry Up' and 'Siam See Saw.'  Considered by many to be a band at their finest on stage, this expanded edition of Spyglass Guest includes a bonus CD of previously unreleased recordings made for BBC Radio One's In Concert program and Sounds of the Seventies in November 1974, offering a glimpse of the excellence of the band in a live environment and released for the very first time. This Esoteric Recordings expanded edition has been newly remastered from the original master tapes and features an illustrated booklet with many rare cuttings and includes an essay by Malcolm Dome and exclusive interviews with Dave Greenslade and Dave Lawson.

Akira Inoue's masterpiece album "Tokyo Installation," released in 1986, has finally been reissued.

Buddy Miles/Live ....import 2 CD Set $26.99

Buddy Miles/Live ....import 2 CD Set $26.99

CD reissue. Buddy Miles was not only a great soul singer and all-around music man, he was also one of the best drummers ("The Baddest of the Bad") of an era. He was a founder member of the Electric Flag and played the drums on Jimi Hendrix best-selling album Electric Ladyland. Live is a tour de force of funk drenched rock and soul. The intro is a manic reading of "Joe Tex" and "Take It Off Him and Put It on Me" followed by a killer version of Neil Young's "Down by the River." The album closes with a rousing reading of "Them Changes" and a funky "We Got to Live Together," almost unrecognizable from the earlier version that Miles recorded with Hendrix.

Graham Nash/Live: Songs for Beginners & Wild Tales ....CD $18.99

Graham Nash: Live is a unique project on which Nash revisits his first two classic solo albums, Songs for Beginners and Wild Tales, recorded live in concert.  The live albums were recorded in 2019, each in their entirety with their songs in familiar sequence. Nash was joined on stage by a seven-piece band led by his longtime collaborators, Shane Fontayne (guitar and vocals) and Todd Caldwell (keyboards and vocals).  The album was mixed by Kevin Killen and mastered by Bob Ludwig. An extraordinary Grammy winning renaissance artist - and self-described "simple man" - Nash was inducted twice into the Songwriters Hall of Fame, for his work with CSN and his work as a solo artist, beginning with these two landmark albums, Songs for Beginners and Wild Tales. Nash's lifelong commitment to his work is unwavering. His inspiration is simple: "All the things we stood for, that love is better than hatred, that peace is better than war, that we have to take care of our fellow human beings, because that's all we have on this planet - those things are still true today. I need to know that I've brought something into the world that was positive and not negative."

Pinder Brothers/Melancholy Sea ....CD $15.99

Pinder Brothers/Melancholy Sea ....CD $15.99

The Pinder Brothers' new 'Melancholy Sea' makes waves with sing-a-long melodies and crafty alt-rock rrrangements.  Sons of Moody Blues founding member Mike Pinder carry on the tradition, as their own SoCal followers continue to burgeon.  The Pinder Brothers may not be the first pair of siblings to proffer an intrinsic fusion of vocal harmonies, but add to the mix crafty sing-a-long melodies and enough of a rock edge to engage the masses. That is the musical mantra of these brothers in arms' third full-length release "Melancholy Sea."  Of course, the many current fans of Matthew and Michael Lee are already aware of one other essential factor. Let's call it pedigree. Their dad Mike Pinder was a founding member of the legendary Moody Blues, who not only fulfilled the enduring band's mellotron duties, but also contributed harmony vocals.   The Pinder Brothers mesh the harmonies of Crosby, Stills and Nash alongside the songwriting style of Simon & Garfunkel, and ultimately add their own modern spin.   Listeners will hear all of this and more in "Melancholy Sea," which the pair wrote, played and arranged.  The project's masterfully penned lyrics create a sonic tapestry that dazzles the ear....much like the colors of a seashell inspire the eye. The brothers' voices harmonize beautifully, accompanied by arrangements that deftly ease from a bed of crunchy electric guitars into warm overdriven tones that layer as naturally as sheets and a blanket.  It could be said that The Pinder Brothers have '60s Brit-rock heritage in their DNA, with a healthy dose of California style thrown in. Hailing from Northern California, Matt and Michael Pinder grew up playing music and performing together whenever possible.   How could they not, with the sounds of the lost chord echoing softly in their ears. Thankfully, Mike Pinder's innate talent has been passed on to his sons - who are now creating their own legacy.

Klaus Schulze & Pete Namlook/Dark Side of the Moog Vols. 1 - 4 ....import 5 CD Set $34.99

Complex re-release of the most remarkable and worldwide sought after series The Dark Side of the Moog by German electronic pioneers Klaus Schulze and Pete Namlook (aka Peter Kuhlmann) in three slip lid boxsets, each with 5 CDs, including bonus material and new liner notes. The first box contains Vol. 1 to Vol. 4 and the best of album The Evolution of the Dark Side of the Moog. The relationship between Klaus and Pete and the exchange of ideas was unorthodox from the beginning of their co-operation in that they rarely met personally. The most remarkable contacts they had were outside of their studios, for instance their concert of April 1999 at the Jazz Festival in Hamburg which was released as an edited version on 'Dark Side of the Moog, Vol.8' (which will be released in the second boxset) - the interplay and chemistry between them is clearly evident, and it becomes even clearer on the un-edited version of the concert (which will be released as bonus CD on the third boxset). The influence Namlook had on Klaus's music in the middle of the nineties should not be taken lightly because, although Klaus dearly loved those early-analogue elements from his own music, they had become to an extent lost. It was Pete who fortified him to go back to the analogue charm of his early albums and it was Pete who supported him in the modification of his analogue instruments leading finally to the epoch-making Schulze album from 1996 - Are You Sequenced? And so a legendary series of recordings was born. 'Dark Side of the Moog' grew more or less unplanned to a sprawling, stately-sized series of eleven volumes recorded between 1994 and 2008, only ending with the early, tragic death of Pete on November 8th 2012.

Benberg), brass and woodwind player John Helliwell, bassist Dougie Thomson, and co-producer Ken Scott.

David Sylvian/Sleepwalkers [Deluxe Edition] ....import CD $24.99

In the '00s, David Sylvian produced two of his strongest and most solitary statements, Blemish and Manafon. But those records don't tell the whole story. During that the same period, Sylvian created an alternate body of work: a series of collaborations and side projects with leading talents of pop and improv, electronic and contemporary classical music. The best of these recordings are gathered here on Sleepwalkers, meticulously sequenced and remixed: the fruits of one-off meetings and lifelong partnerships, they jump from bliss to intrigue, romance to sensuality, as arch experiments lead into the lushest pop. 17 tracks.

Tangerine Dream/La Divina Commedia ....import 5 CD + DVD Set $95.99

Tangerine Dream has been a fundamental influence on electronic music since Edgar Froese founded the band in West Berlin in 1967. Providing the groundwork for multiple electronic music genres including ambient and electronica, inspiring musicians and other art forms, with seven Grammy nominations to their credit. In recent years their music has featured in popular TV shows such as Stranger Things and video games including Grand Theft Auto V. Edgar Froese was an artist with a truly clear vision. His life and work were characterized by holding on to his belief in the evolution of music as an art form. That became a predominant principle within Tangerine Dream following his encounter with painter and sculptor Salvador Dali. Tangerine Dream went fully independent in 1996, launching their own TDI label and company.  At the start of the new millennium Froese met painter and artist Bianca Acquaye which subsequently led to the first part of the Dante Trilogy, Inferno, being recorded. This followed with seven live performances, partly with an orchestra, across Europe. La Divina Commedia aka The Dante Trilogy was to be Tangerine Dream's most ambitious and elaborate project to date, Edgar Froese's life work. Now, the entire trilogy (Inferno, Purgatorio, Paradiso) is presented in a deluxe 60-page hardback book set via Kscope. All albums have been remastered by close collaborator Harald Pairits with the 2002 live concert DVD (NTSC 0) filmed at Castle Nideggen, Cologne featured as a bonus disc. The hardback book features extensive liner notes by noted author Wouter Bessels, an essay by Edgar's close collaborated and wife Bianca Froese-Acquaye and previously unseen photographs from Edgar's private archive.

Stephen Thelen & Jan-Peter Schwalm/Transneptunian Planets ....CD $17.99

The demotion of Pluto remains a topic of controversy more than a decade and a half later, but the now dwarf planet is hardly alone way out on the fringes of our Solar System. On their first collaboration, Transneptunian Planets, electro-acoustic composer J. Peter Schwalm and guitarist/composer/mathematician Stephan Thelen journey beyond the beyond to draw inspiration from the outer limits of the cosmos.  Due out via RareNoiseRecords, Transneptunian Planets further evolves the already innovative body of work that both Schwalm and Thelen have created for the label. Schwalm's relationship with RareNoise began in 2016 with the release of his entrancing album The Beauty of Disaster, followed by the sound sculptures of 2018's How We Fall and continued through collaborations with electro-jazz trio Chat Noir, Norwegian trumpeter Arve Henriksen and guitarist Markus Reuter. Thelen first came to RareNoise in 2018 with Vortex, which combined his minimalist quartet Sonar with the expansive guitarist David Torn. Two more meetings, Tranceportation Volume 1 and Volume 2, followed over the next two years. Under his own name, Thelen released World Dialogue in late 2020, collecting a decade's worth of his contemporary classical compositions performed by the renowned Kronos Quartet and Al Pari Quartet. Transneptunian Planets was built on a back and forth communication between the two composers, with each given complete freedom to build on, transform or mutate the other's contribution. The music is also enriched by contributions from Norwegian guitarist Eivind Aarset and British bassist Tim Harries, both regular collaborators of Schwalm's, and Swiss drummer Manuel Pasquinelli, Thelen's bandmate in Sonar.

The band members were excellent, including drummer Motohiko Hino, bassist Yoshio Suzuki and keyboardist Hideo Ichikawa. It's the reason why the album accomplished something. When I listen back to the album now, it's not a mature statement, but it's a satisfying document of a recording by a 17-year-old guitarist."

Neil Young announced the release of three albums from his Official Bootleg Series.   Royce Hall 1971, comes from his January 30 solo acoustic performance on the UCLA campus, and Dorothy Chandler Pavilion 1971 also captures a solo acoustic show - the final of the "Don't Be Denied" singer's '71 tour - from Los Angeles.  The third release, Citizen Kane Jr. Blues [Live from the Bottom Line], is from Young's 1974 New York City performance.  All three shows come from recordings that readily have been available to collectors for decades, and where "no (official) tape exists, the original bootleg has been restored and remastered to bring listeners the best audio experience possible," a press release notes.  Replications of the artwork that originally appeared with the bootlegged LPs comprise each album's cover, "lending each release that treasured collector's vibe and conjuring the era in which they were first created," the release says.
