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

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

The combination of the band with an almost complete new line up, and a new record company seems very promising and will hopefully open new doors for us!" Kayak was founded in 1972 by keyboardist/composer Ton Scherpenzeel. Often compared to contemporaries like Yes and Focus, the band quickly developed their own style of symphonic rock that was rather concentrating on songs than elaborate solos and long instrumental passages while Kayak never shied away from including epic, longer tracks and captivating, dramatic arrangements. Throughout the years, Kayak has seen many line-up changes with Ton Scherpenzeel now being the only original member and leader of the band.

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

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

Residents - Ghost Of Hope CD $15.99
Residents - I Murdered Mommy CD $19.99
The Residents' soundtrack to a never completed CD ROM game. The 1990s saw The Residents release a series of groundbreaking CD-ROMs. Freak Show was followed up by interactive album Gingerbread Man and then role playing game Bad Day on the Midway. All of these stood head and shoulders above the drivel which increasingly clogged the CD-ROM market and all featured Residential music as an integral part. I Murdered Mommy would have been no exception. Inscape, the company which had released Bad Day, had some reservations with the proposed concept, "an interactive game based on the fantasy life of an emotionally abused 13 year old boy" but as the previous title had sold well they green lighted the project. Unfortunately, shortly after this the aforementioned mountain of inferior titles plus the limitations of the medium (poor capacity) caused the bottom to drop out of the market and Inscape went with it. Musically, all that was left of IMM were some "sketches." In 2004, The Residents took those sketches, fleshed them out and released them in a very limited edition on CD. This re-issue is the first time these music pieces have been made available again. Remastered for this re-issue.

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

Umphrey's McGee - It's Not Us CD $15.99
It's Not Us is the most vibrant, mature expression of that growing studio prowess yet. The evolution of the songwriting is a reflection of life lived, of confidence gained. Life is relentless, and so deserves a relentless soundtrack. For a band that is influenced by everything, there is clearly no fear to tread anywhere. The musical colors are pushed around with a fluidity that is both niche and accessible. From vulnerable, stripped down acoustic ("You & You Alone") to ferocious, blistering rock ("Dark Brush"), It's Not Us encapsulates a diversity that you rarely find in a single band. It's all over and it's all here. It's quintessential Umphrey's.

Wood, Ron & Ronnie Lane - Mahoney's Last Stand - Original Motion Picture CD $15.99
Zorn, John - Urmuz Epigrams CD $17.99
With The Urmuz Epigrams Zorn returns to his roots, using the recording studio as instrument to create an intensely personal suite of compositions in the style of his legendary File Card compositions and Zoetropes. Dedicated to the visionary Romanian writer Urmuz whose small, scattered body of work predated Dadaism by decades, The Urmuz Epigrams is a suite of surrealistic miniatures more akin to philosophical aphorisms than actual music. The pieces are presented here in two iterations, as a set of "rare 78rpm records" complete with surface scratches and limited dynamic range, and as a modern reconstruction of same with the full blown studio sound presented in all its perplexing glory. Some of the craziest music in the Zorn catalog!

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

Various Artists - Progressive Italia 70 / Various - Italy - Import, 15PC CD $72.99
The Italian progressive rock scene of the 70s is one with many different strands and styles a good deal of which you'll get to experience in this amazing little collection! Italian prog is the stuff of legend as tight and well-played as the most famous work from the UK at the start of the 70s, but much more obscure overall as many of the groups never got the kind of record contracts to get them global exposure which meant that, even back in the day, the movement was only limited to dedicated listeners who could get their hands on obscure imports! A good deal of those classic titles are presented here in a very cool 15CD package that not only features some of the most well-crafted records from the scene, but also some surprisingly experimental records, and a few left-field choices as well. All albums come as stand-alone CDs, complete with artwork, booklets, and jewel cases and the package also features a bonus book with notes in Italian.

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

Bodast with Steve Howe - Towards Utopia: RM Edition - RM, UK - Import CD $19.99
Digitally remastered edition of the 1969 recordings by Bodast, the short-lived band formed in late 1968 featuring Steve Howe (lead guitar, acoustic guitar, bass), Dave Curtis (bass, vocals), Bobby Clarke (drums) and Clive Skinner (vocals, acoustic guitar). Originally known as Canto, the trio of Howe, Curtis and Clarke adopted the name Bodast (and abbreviation of their first names) after a few months. Later joined by Clive Skinner, the band recorded a series of songs at Trident studios in London, produced by Steve Howe's former band mate in Tomorrow, Keith West. Sadly, despite being hailed for their live performances, Bodast failed to see any recordings released during their existence. Over four decades on from the sessions, the tracks recorded by Bodast are fascinating, revealing a phase of Steve Howe's career prior to him joining Yes and enjoying global acclaim. The track "Nether Street" featured a riff later reworked by Steve Howe as the basis of the "Wurm" section of the song "Starship Trooper" recorded by Yes. "Towards Utopia" features the original Keith West produced mixes of the Trident sessions, along with three bonus tracks by Canto recorded for Deep Purple's management company in 1968.

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

"There have been so many times in my life when an invitation has come from somewhere... The cosmos... The divine... to step out of the familiar into something new. I've found it's best to listen for and follow these promptings. The song is really about that. You can stay with what you know or you can pack your bag and go where you're called, even if it seems weird - even if you can't see why or where you'll end up." - Bruce Cockburn.
Colosseum - Daughter Of Time - Expanded Version, RM, UK - Import CD $19.99
Digitally remastered and expanded edition of the classic 1970 album by Colosseum.

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

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

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

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

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

Zodiac - Cosmic Sounds - UK - Import CD $15.99
Digitally remastered edition of this classic 1967 Elektra album conceived by label head Jac Holzman, who claimed that the success of the Doors was a primary inspiration for the project, the Zodiac's Cosmic Sounds is a concept piece based on the twelve signs of the Chaldean astronomical zodiac. It combines the music of electronics pioneer Mort Garson, performed on early Moog synthesizer by Paul Beaver, and the words of Jacques Wilson, which would be delivered in Morrison-esque style by the Iranian-born folk musician, Cyrus Faryar, a man dubbed by Holzman "the Persian minstrel of Barham Boulevard". One of the earliest psychedelic / progressive concept albums, Cosmic Sounds is performed by members of the Wrecking Crew, the loosely affiliated assembly of West Coast musicians, who during the 1960s worked extensively with Brian Wilson, Phil Spector, the Monkees, Simon & Garfunkel; Carol Kaye: bass guitar; Hal Blaine: drums; Bud Shank: flute; Mike Melvoin: keyboards, Emil Richards: exotic percussion. Technicians of the highest pedigree. The producer on the Zodiac sessions was Alex Hassilev, a former member of the Limeliters vocal group.
Zorn, John - Interpretation Of Dreams CD $15.99
Asia - Alpha SACD $28.99
Supergroup Asia, featuring bassist/vocalist John Wetton, drummer Carl Palmer, keyboardist Geoff Downes, and guitarist Steve Howe, was the logical successor to their collective bands of the 1970s - Yes, ELP, King Crimson, and The Buggles. The group's eponymous debut album exploded onto the music scene in March of 1982 with several Top 10 singles and sales exceeding 7 million copies. Released in 1983, one year before the departure of Howe, the Mike Stone-produced follow-up Alpha would be the band's last with the classic original line-up. Creative tensions and egos - not to mention the pressure of having to top the best selling album of the previous year - began to takes it's toll on the band. "We had a precious success," remembers Wetton. "We came in at the top, but it was an illusion to think we'd stay there. The band was still finding it's feet as a musical entity."
Dylan, Bob - Freewheelin' Bob Dylan SACD-Hybrid $39.99
Limited Mobile Fidelity SACD hybrid pressing. This is the very finest, most transparent digital stereo edition of The Freewheelin' Bob Dylan ever produced. Never before has the resonance of his nylon guitar strings, fingerpicked notes, shivering harmonica fills, or plainspoken timbre possessed such clarity, openness, body, or realism. Writing and singing with penetrating honesty, observational wit, moral conviction, and scathing emotion, he digs into the madness of war ("Masters of War," "A Hard Rain's A-Gonna Fall"), hypocrisy of segregation ("Oxford Town"), urgency of civil rights and freedom ("Blowin' in the Wind"), and multiple angles of unrequited love ("Girl From the North Country," "Don't Think Twice It's All Right") with a literate astuteness and depth that, nearly 50 years later, still leave audiences slack-jawed. Satire, absurdist humor, and traditional blues also pepper the album, which rests upon graceful melodies and sparse, poignant patterns.
Dylan, Bob - Love and Theft SACD $39.99
Limited Mobile Fidelity SACD hybrid disc. Mastered from the original master tapes. Love And Theft is the 31st studio album rock icon Bob Dylan. It was originally released on September 11, 2001 by Columbia Records. It featured backing by his touring band of the time, with keyboardist Augie Meyers added for the sessions. It peaked at #5 on the Billboard 200. The album continued Dylan's artistic comeback following 1997's Time Out of Mind and was given an even more enthusiastic reception. The title of the album was apparently inspired by historian Eric Lott's book Love & Theft: Blackface Minstrelsy and the American Working Class, which was published in 1993.
Flying Burrito Brothers - Gilded Palace Of Sin SACD $35.99
Limited Mobile Fidelity hybrid SACD pressing mastered from the original master tapes.

The Gilded Palace of Sin is listed at number 192 in Rolling Stone magazine's 500 Greatest Albums of All Time.

Adorned with an evocative cover by the-one-and-only Hipgnosis, 1978's Pieces of Eight served as another hit Styx concept album this time themed around, "not giving up your dreams just for the pursuit of money and material possessions."

Pieces of Eight features the full extent of Styx's many talents and maintains it's quality while exploring a lot of different musical styles, all wrapped up in a compelling prog rock veneer.

CD Box Sets
Anathema - Optimist: Earbook Edition Germany - Import, 3PC CD $104.99
Cale, John - Live At Rockpalast With DVD, 4PC CD $22.99
Even today, JOHN CALE is renowned for having been a member of The Velvet Underground alongside Lou Reed, Maureen Tucker and Sterling Morrison. Though less known to many fans are his early collaborations with avant-garde musicians like John Cage or La Monte Young. His solo works have always been a mixture of classical influenced avant-garde, orchestral works and dynamic, experimental Rock. He has worked as a musician, producer (Nico, Patti Smith, Happy Mondays, to name a few) and arranger. His collaborations with artists such as Brian Eno, Kevin Ayers or Little Feat are legendary. When he was invited for the Rockpalast-Festival on October, 14th 1984, he had just released the desolate masterpiece "Music For A New Society" (1982), "Caribbean Sunset" (1983) and "John Cale Comes Alive" (1984). Compared to the official live album, JOHN CALE's performance at the Rockpalast was far more intense, desperate and wild. He performed the songs with a very hard edge, sometimes even deconstructed them ("Heartbreak Hotel"), receiving a mixed reaction from the audience, that just has survived performances of Level 24, Huey Lewis & The News and Chalice. When JOHN CALE appeared onstage it nearly was 3 o'clock in the morning, the atmosphere in the hall was as tense and menacing as the concert that followed. Up to this day, this performance remains one of the most spectacular concerts in the history of the Rockpalast-Series. In sharp contrast to this performance you will find a second concert at Zeche Bochum from 1983. Here you will find the more introverted JOHN CALE: a man and his piano performing his all-time-classics, including an extremely expressive version of "Fear Is A Man's Best Friend". Altogether, this set perfectly represents the many facettes of the JOHN CALE in the early 80s - it is a historic document which stands the test of time. Boxset with 2 DVDs and 2 CDs, booklet with fotos and linernotes.
Carrack, Paul - Original Album Collection Vol 2 UK Import, 5PC CD $22.99
Limited five CD set from the British blue-eyed soul vocalist. After the success of the Vol 1 Box comes Vol 2 of the Classic Album Collection. Spanning from Old New Borrowed and Blue to 2013's classic soul themed collection Rain or Shine the box comes in a slipcase and contains five albums housed in mini LP type sleeves. Paul Carrack, the hugely respected singer-songwriter who is the voice of many of the landmark British pop songs of the past 40 years, released a stunning new album, Soul Shadows, on January 15, 2016. The record sees him at the absolute peak of his powers as a vocalist, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist. Paul Carrack surely deserves the latter-day title of the hardest-working man in show business. Soul Shadows came in the wake of Carrack's latest sojourn as featured vocalist and keyboard player in Eric Clapton's band for his UK and international tour, the result of their longtime friendship and mutual respect. The new album was the follow-up to 2013's warmly-received Rain Or Shine, which maintained Paul's recurring status as a staple of the BBC Radio 2 playlist.

Delaney & Bonnie & Friends - On Tour With Eric Clapton UK Import, 4PC CD $32.99
Delaney & Bonnie On Tour with Eric Clapton This 42-minute, eight-song live album, cut at Croydon late in 1969, is not only the peak of Delaney & Bonnie's output, but also the nexus in the recording and performing careers of Eric Clapton and George Harrison. On Tour features Clapton performing the same blend of country, blues, and gospel that would characterize his own early solo ventures in 1970.
Dr Feelgood - Lee Brilleaux: Rock N Roll Gentleman - Canada - Import, 4PC CD $42.99
2017 four CD anthology that celebrates vocalist Lee Brilleaux's musical journey with Dr. Feelgood. Spanning two decades - from 1974 to his untimely death in 1994 - this set includes early recordings made in the classic Wilko Johnson era, music from the second Gypie Mayo line-up and then into the eighties and nineties, to his last live album Down At The Doctors. These records were issued on various record labels originally, such as United Artists, Liberty, Chiswick, Stiff and Grand. The set comes in bookset style packaging and offers a 48-page booklet which includes sleeve notes by Zoe Howe, author of the recent biography that bears the same name as this set.

Opposites attract, or so they say. And Jan Akkerman and Thijs van Leer certainly are opposites. Both incredibly gifted, the two musicians inspire each other when they meet in Focus. Here you find Akkerman and Van Leer's exciting legacy of superb continental European progressive rock. And jazz. And classical music. Plus the non-Akkerman Focus releases, with a rejuvenated band helmed by Thijs van Leer, innovative as ever, creating new sounds like no other band can. A box of groundbreaking music to say the least.
Grateful Dead - Road Trips, Vol. 4 No. 5 Boston Music Hall 3PC CD $53.99
It was our great honor at Real Gone Music to issue all 36 volumes of Dick's Picks, The Grateful Dead's landmark live concert series; over the four and a half years it took us to release all three dozen titles, we sometimes felt like we were on the greatest Dead tour ever, every single show a classic! Well, our diligence in releasing Dick's Picks has had a "Ripple" effect, for now the band is entrusting us with releasing it's subsequent live concert series, Road Trips! Unlike Dick's Picks, which saw about two-thirds of it's titles go to regular retail in their original incarnations, NONE of the entries in the Road Trips series were offered to retail outlets outside of the Dead's own website. The Road Trips series was also a little different from Dick's Picks in that the early volumes assembled tracks from different shows on the same tour, while later volumes presented single shows. Since it worked so well with Dick's Picks, we are reissuing the last titles first, and we have enlisted the series' original designer, Steve Vance, to convert the original wallet packaging to customer-friendly triple-CD jewel cases. Another cache of brilliant live Dead, finally available in record stores!
Kayak - Journey Through Time: Complete Studio Album Collection Boxed Set, Holland - Import, 21PC CD $109.99
Limited 21 CD set from the Dutch progressive rockers. This box holds the band's sixteen studio album (including three double albums) and two bonus CD's with non-album tracks, rarities and demo's. One of the bonus CD's most remarkable items is 'Happy New Year', a Kayak demo dating from '74 or '75, that has never been released. There are several Kayak-related tracks like the singe 'Fluffy'/ 'White Walls' (1970) by High Tide Formation (with Pim Koopman, Ton Scherpenzeel, Chiel van Praag and Ron v.d. Werff). Then there's an outstanding collection of no less than eight home-recorded demos of previously unreleased material by Pim, Ton, Johan Slager and Carwin Gijsing under the name of Ten Ride Ticket. The Plan (with Ton and the Kay-ettes) are represented by their 1982 single If This Ain't Love/Hit Bottom. Finally we mention the version of 'I Want You To Be Mine' that in 1978 took Kayak to the USA Top 50. Worth mentioning is the fact that an empty wallet has included an for the yet to be released album Seventeen, which enables the true Kayak collector to really complete this unique album set. Albums have been remastered from the original studio master tapes.
Marillion - Misplaced Childhood (Deluxe Edition)(4CD w/ Blu-Ray) 5PC CD $54.99
As openings go, they don't come any more enigmatic than the one that ushers in Marillion's third album, 'Misplaced Childhood'.

The British Invasion contains 122 influential British tracks in all spread over eight CDs. Also includes a full-color, 24-page booklet chronicling this unprecedented and unparalleled period of music history. Bold new sounds and influences from overseas turned into a social and cultural phenomenon that transformed pop culture in the '60s. From 1964 to the end of the decade, American shores were invaded by British forces-designers, actors, singers and musicians-all armed with sophisticated style and accents and all of them marvelously and exotically "foreign." Dominating the airwaves were tunes from some of the greatest British rock and pop legends. Musical acts ranging from buoyant pop to harder-edged rock plus the most impressive guitar band in rock music climbed the charts and changed not only what Americans listened to, but also how we thought, dressed and lived. Time Life put together the essential music collection that celebrates this new sound that captured our hearts: The British Invasion. Includes tracks by Eric Burdon and the Animals, The Kinks, Herman's Hermits, The Who, The Beatles, Gerry and the Pacemakers, Rod Stewart, The Mindbenders, Elton John, The Troggs, Marianne Faithful, The Yardbirds, Deep Purple, The Spencer Davis Group, Chad & Jeremy, Mott the Hoople, Peter & Gordon and many others.

Anathema - Optimist 2PC CD $15.99

Argent, Rod - Red House CD $16.99
Reissue of this 1988 album from the musician best known for his work with The Zombies and Argent. Rod Argent is an English musician, singer, songwriter, composer, and record producer. An uncredited internet pundit on the One Good Song blog, writes: "This comes off as a new age movie soundtrack, but a good new age movie soundtrack. It's mostly instrumental, and mostly done on synthesizers - even the drums sound like drum machines - augmented by occasional sax, guitar (Clem Clempson, ex-Humble Pie), or bass (Mo Foster, ex-Jeff Beck). Argent scat sings on "Salvation Song" and delivers fantastic soul vocals on "Helpless" and "Baby Don't You Cry". He'd been doing movie and TV scores for years at this point, and he really had the form figured out.
Atomic Rooster - Devil's Answer - Atomic Rooster CD $16.99
CD reissue. Atomic Rooster was an English progressive rock band originally composed of former members of the The Crazy World of Arthur Brown. Throughout their history keyboardist Vincent Crane was the only constant member and wrote the majority of their material. Their history is defined by two periods: the early-mid-1970s and the early 1980s. Their genre in music is difficult to define since they went through radical changes in very short times during the life of the band. However, their best-known era represented a more hard rock/progressive rock sound. This CD is a collection of the band's radio broadcasts: tracks 1-2 recorded in session for Mike Harding Show 26.5.70; track 3 recorded in session for John Peel 14.1.71; tracks 4-5 recorded in session for Mike Harding 22.3.71; tracks 6-7 recorded in session for Johnnie Walker 12.6.72; tracks 8-9 recorded in session for Johnnie Walker 7.12.72; tracks 10-12 recorded in session 16.10.81; and tracks 13-15 recorded in session for Live 27.7.72.

Big Big Train - Second Brightest Star UK Import CD $18.99
2017 release from the progressive rock outfit. The Second Brightest Star is a companion album to Folklore and Grimspound and features seven new songs (about 40 minutes) which "explore landscapes, rivers and meeting places and take the listener on voyages of discovery across the world and to the stars." In addition, the release will comes with a bonus selection of 30 minutes of music (named 'Grimlore') where songs from Folklore and Grimspound are presented in extended format. "The Second Brightest Star is the last album in a cycle of releases which started back in 2009 with The Underfall Yard album. Our writing over this period has focused on the English landscape, the people that work on the land and their folklore stories. The band will be moving on to different landscapes and subjects in future years as we play more shows outside of England. But we had a few more stories left to tell and wanted to bring them together on The Second Brightest Star.
Blake, Tim - Caldea Music II: Remastered Edition UK Import CD $18.99
Digitally remastered edition of Caldea Music II, the 2002 album by Tim Blake. Tim first came to prominence as a member of Gong, where his synthesizer experimentation and mastery was demonstrated on albums such as Flying Teapot, Angel's Egg and You. He would also join Hawkwind from 1979 - 1980 and from November 2007. After departing Gong in 1975 he teamed up with French lighting designer Patrice Warrener to form Crystal Machine, pioneering the use of lasers and synthesizers in a live setting. Blake's debut solo album, Crystal Machine, was originally released in 1977 on the French experimental label Egg. Tim followed this with Blake's New Jerusalem in 1978. Unlike his previous work, the album featured songs and the lengthy title-track would dominate the album's second side. Tim Blake joined Hawkwind in 1979 and remained with the group for just over a year before returning to France and moving away from music. In 2002 Tim recorded and released Caldea Music II, a work especially commissioned by the Caldea Spa centre in Andorra. The album saw Tim return to his purely instrumental roots, cited by some as a modern equivalent of his classic Crystal Machine album. Recorded once again at his Windmill studio, the album featured wonderfully evocative music and guest appearances by Christian Boule (Glissando Guitar) and Konan Mevel (Catalan Bagpipes, Flute).

He would also join Hawkwind from 1979 - 1980 and from November 2007.
Bloomfield, Michael - Don't Say That I Ain't Your Man UK Import, 2PC CD $13.99
Two CD set. Mike Bloomfield was an American guitarist and composer, born in Chicago, Illinois, who knew and played with many of Chicago's blues legends before achieving his own fame popularizing blues music in the mid-1960s. Notably, he played a significant role in helping to launch the "electric" Bob Dylan, playing on most of the Highway 61 Revisited album and performing with Dylan at the 1965 Newport Folk Festival. He was ranked #22 on Rolling Stone's list of 100 Greatest Guitarists of All Time in 2003 and #42 by the same magazine in 2011. He was inducted into the Blues Hall of Fame in 2012 and, as a member of the Paul Butterfield Blues Band, the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2015. Don't Say That I Ain't Your Man: Essential Blues, 1964-1969 is an anthology that includes five songs from Bloomfield's original 1964 Columbia sessions produced by John Hammond. The remaining ten tracks move from his contributions to the Paul Butterfield Blues Band and Electric Flag, to his collaborations with Al Kooper, as well as some late-'60s solo material.
Bonnet, Graham - Live Here Comes The Night 2PC CD $15.99
Legendary rock vocalist Graham Bonnet is back with a new live album and home video captured during his acclaimed performance at Frontiers Rock Festival III in Trezzo (Milan, Italy) on April 24, 2016. - Accompanied by a stellar band featuring founding member Beth-Ami Heavenstone on bass, South American guitar sensation Conrado Pesinato on lead guitar, and Mark Zonder (known for his work with Warlord and Fates Warning) on drums, Bonnet masterfully delivered a thrilling "Best of" set which included songs from his stints with bands such as Rainbow, McAuley Schenker Group, Alcatrazz, Impellitteri, and of course his solo material too. - Bonnet says: "It's been a very long time since I last released a live video, 33 years to be exact, with Alcatrazz.

Brecker Brothers - Heaven Detente - Holland - Import CD $15.99
Buckingham, Lindsey & Christine Mcvie - Lindsey Buckingham Christine Mcvie CD $15.99
2017 release. Longtime members of Fleetwood Mac, Lindsey Buckingham and Christine McVie have joined together to record their first-ever album as a duo. The Mac bandmates rediscovered their creative bond after McVie rejoined the group's lineup in 2014. The album offers what both partners see as the sensible - and long-overdue - culmination of a long-term partnership. "We were exploring a creative process, and the identity of the project took on a life organically," explains Buckingham. "The body of work felt like it was meant to be a duet album. We acknowledged that to each other on many occasions, and said to ourselves, 'what took us so long?'" "We've always written well together, Lindsey and I," adds McVie. "This has just spiraled into something really amazing that we've done between us." Tracked in Los Angeles, Lindsey Buckingham/Christine McVie serves as a de facto Fleetwood Mac album of sorts; although singer Stevie Nicks was not involved, the duo worked with Mac rhythm section Mick Fleetwood and John McVie, adding their distinctive "dynamic rhythmic engine" to the 10-song set.
Burdon, Eric & the Animals - Every One Of Us Holland - Import CD $15.99
CD reissue. The late sixties were the experimental years in 'pop' music, the years of flower power and psychedelica, the years of Jefferson Airplane and The Doors in the U.S.A. and The Move, The Animals and Sgt. Pepper in the U.K. The traditional two minute songs made place for stretched out tracks which could become up to a full LP sized 20 minute marathon. With Every One Of Us, originally released in 1968 on MGM records, Eric Burdon did his part in bringing music to a new level never heard before. Famous for many big hits in the mid 60's like 'House Of The Rising Sun' and 'It's My Life' Burdon, with Zoot Money on the Hammond, surprised the music world with this top psychedelic blues album.
Byrne, David - Live From Austin, TX With DVD, 2PC CD $17.99
David Byrne is a modern renaissance man - and that's not just a cliché. From the heady days as co-founder of the celebrated art new-wave group Talking Heads (1976-88) through his own constantly evolving and innovative solo music career, he has pursued his muse on many different artistic fronts. He's been the driving force behind a body of work that has been both intellectually daring and commercially successful... and he shows no signs of slowing down decades later. This show, captured on November 28, 2001, came on the heels of his hit single, Like Humans Do and the release of the album Look Into The Eyeball, which was another typically eclectic musical stew reflecting a variety of styles and influences, from Philly soul to a D.C. Go-Go inspired groove and his first-ever Spanish composition, Desconocido Soy. Critics at the time called it his best work in years, and his performance on the Austin City Limits stage shows why. Joined by Austin's own eclectic tango ensemble Tosca, Byrne takes us down many different musical roads in his ACL debut. Of course, besides the brilliant songwriter and performer that he is, he's also an accomplished performance artist, photographer, web journalist, film writer / director, composer of motion picture soundtracks, and founder of his own world music label, Luaka Bop Records. He also has a collection of Grammys, Oscars and Golden Globes on his mantel. His music may be complex and poetic, but he makes no bones about his ultimate intent: I want to move people to dance and cry at the same time. - Terry Lickona (Producer Austin City Limits).
Caligula's Horse - Tide The Thief & River's End Germany - Import CD $20.99
Can - Singles CD $16.99
Can were enormously influential on forward-thinking rock artists (their fingerprints are all over Radiohead, The Flaming Lips, Public Image Limited, Pavement, Mars Volta, The Jesus & Mary Chain) as well as crate dig hip-hop culture (sampled by the likes of Kanye West, A Tribe Called Quest, Earl Sweatshirt, Spank Rock), but one question persists: Where do you start? This unique document is the first time Can's singles have been presented together and shows the breadth of their influential career, includes cuts dating back to 1970, such as 'Soul Desert' and 'She Brings The Rain', as well as out of print single edits of tracks like "Halleluwah," "Vitamin C" and "I Want More" until the band's breakup in 1988. It also includes rare singles such as 'Silent Night' and a 7" cut of 'Turtles Have Short Legs' (originally recorded during the sessions for Tago Mago from 1971).
Captain Beefheart & His Magic Band - Trout Mask House Sessions 1969 CD $16.99
CD reissue. Zappa granted Beefheart unrestrained artistic freedom in making 1969's Trout Mask Replica, which ranked 58th in Rolling Stone magazine's 2003 list of the 500 greatest albums of all time. Van Vliet has been described as '... one of modern music's true innovators' with '... a singular body of work virtually unrivalled in it's daring and fluid creativity.' Although he achieved little commercial or mainstream critical success, he sustained a cult following as a 'highly significant' and 'incalculable' influence on an array of New Wave, punk, post-punk, experimental and alternative rock musicians. Known for his enigmatic personality and relationship with the public, Van Vliet made few public appearances after his retirement from music (and from his Beefheart persona) in 1982. He pursued a career in art, an interest that originated in his childhood talent for sculpture, and a venture that proved to be his most financially secure. His expressionist paintings and drawings command high prices and have been exhibited in art galleries and museums across the world. Van Vliet died in 2010, having suffered from multiple sclerosis for many years. The Captain had a notoriously sadomasochistic with some of his musicians especially during the recording of the album usually considered to be his greatest work Trout Mask Replica. Here, you can listen to some of those peculiar sessions for yourself!

Chilton, Alex - Baton Rouge 1985 CD $17.99
ALEX CHILTON - Baton Rouge 1985 - Klondike proudly presents the entire Louisiana Public Broadcast (WLPB) of Alex Chilton, live from the VFW Hall in Baton Rouge, Louisiana on September 27th 1985. With shades of Syd Barrett and other Anglophile figures, Chilton's adoption of obscure blues, R&B, soul and the American songbook provided an interesting and provocative return to form with 1985's Feudalist Tarts E.P. Here, Chilton's famed excesses are firmly denied, as he delivers a blistering set with all the Big Star trademarks firmly intact.
Clear Blue Sky - Clear Blue Sky: Remastered Edition UK Import CD $18.99
Digitally remastered and fully restored edition of the classic self-titled album by progressive power trio Clear Blue Sky, originally released on the Vertigo label in 1970. Clear Blue Sky came together in the late 1960s in Acton, West London. Comprising John Simms (guitar, vocals), Ken White (drums) and Mark Sheather (bass), the band came to the attention of musician and producer Patrick Campbell-Lyons (of the UK band Nirvana) in 1970.

The release features an illustrated booklet, previously unseen photographs (courtesy of John Simms), an essay and interviews with John Simms and Patrick Campbell-Lyons and fully restores the albums original artwork.
Coryell, Larry - At The Village Gate CD $15.99
Larry Coryell unexpectedly passed away earlier this year right after our Real Gone reissue of his second solo album, Coryell, and with the renewed attention given to his monumental recorded legacy, we decided to move up our long-in-the-works domestic CD debut of his album At the Village Gate in order to expose this classic record to the largest audience possible. This is the recording where Larry really went axe-to-axe with Jimi Hendrix, who had passed away four months prior to the January 1971 gigs that formed the basis of this release; perhaps in response, Coryell formed his own power trio of his own composed of himself, drummer Harry Wilkinson, and bassist Mervin Bronson to play material that stylistically wasn't too far removed from the funk/jazz/rock of Jimi's Band of Gypsys. The result was a fan favorite that somehow has never been issued on CD in the U.S. (and came out overseas over a decade ago on a couple of lightly-distributed labels of suspect provenance). Coryell's Gibson 400 has seldom sounded as slashing as it does here, while Wilkinson's playing (aptly described as "busy" by Downbeat) is a cross between Mitch Mitchell, Tony Williams, and Buddy Miles; Bronson keeps things rooted when Coryell heads for the stratosphere. Which is often... this is maybe the most "heroic" of this underappreciated guitar hero's records. Mike Milchner's remastering captures every coruscating note, and Bill Kopp's liner notes feature an interview with drummer Wilkinson. One of the truly great jazz-rock guitarists, loud, free 'n' fiery.
Coryell, Larry's 11th House - Seven Secrets CD $16.99
2017 release, the final recording by legendary jazz fusion pioneers Larry Coryell and Alphonse Mouton in the reformed the Eleventh House. The late guitarist Coryell assembled founding members Randy Brecker (trumpet), long-timer John Lee (bass), the addition of son Julian (guitar) and the late Alphonse Mouzon (drums) to bring the rock and funk back to jazz again with a batch of eleven powerhouse tracks. The album is truly a group effort with Coryell relying on each member to contribute compositions to the new album (much like he did back in the 70's).
Cosmograf - Hay-Man Dreams UK Import CD $22.99
Dauner, Wolfgang & Flo - Elektronische Mythen CD $11.99
Davis, Miles - Cinema Of Miles Davis UK Import CD $15.99
UK collection. The Cinema of Miles Davis showcases superior examples of the use of the great jazz trumpeter's music in film. This edition includes his first complete score, sultry and improvised, for Elevator To the Gallows - Louis Malle's directorial debut starring the eternal Jeanne Moreau - which came in late 1957, a decisive time for Miles; marking the ending of his hard-bop period and anticipating the modal phase that would culminate in A Kind of Blue. With Parker and Dizzy Gillespie and Monk, Davis' music was central to the aesthetic of the Beat Generation so it is unsurprising to find it featured in documentaries on the life and work of both Jack Kerouac and Lenny Bruce. These iconic men of words considered their art to be a form of jazz with the latter referring to his voice as his "Horn". During the nineties, the Spanish director Pedro Almodóvar deployed powerful and ornate Gil Evans compositions, performed by Miles and inspired by flamenco, in High Heels and Flower of My Secret. Elsewhere, the incomparable Blue in Green appears in Sally Potter's passionate, Cold War meets the Sexual Revolution drama, Ginger & Rosa, while Miles' reading of the Eden Ahbez masterpiece Nature Boy, is heard under Mediterranean skies in Anthony Minghella's interpretation of Patricia Highsmith's The Talented Mr. Ripley.

Magnetic is the exciting 2017 album by London based music producer/musician GaudI, which features a choice selection of sounds from the catalogue of internationally respected experimental label RareNoiseRecords, as well as direct contributions by several top caliber musicians from the worlds of rock, jazz and electronica.

The initial idea of the project was to compose an album of entirely new music using sounds from the RareNoise catalog as his 'orchestra of musicians'; over the course of it's development it grew into a full spectrum artistic interaction with a further array of international music giants, some of which Gaudi has worked in past with. Best loved and noted to date for his genre blending and high quality dub-centric productions, in Magnetic, Gaudi has shown us another aspect of his musical self, other ranges in his musical landscape and he has done it with an all-star cast of supporting musicians.

Harrison, Gavin & O5Ric - Man Who Sold Himself CD $12.99
Haslinger, Paul - Halt & Catch Fire (original Soundtrack) CD $24.99
AMC's hit series 'Halt And Catch Fire' captures the rise of the PC-era during the early 80s and the technology revolution. Nominated by Vox as the best show in 2016, it's "a potent look back at the earliest days of the internet that also glimpsed, through some hazy curtain, the world we live in right now." Acclaimed for it's exceptional soundtrack by former Tangerine Dream musician and award winning composer, Paul Haslinger has created a period-appropriate synth score that admirably sets the mood and tone of the bygone era. Revisiting his time in the pioneering electronic band during the mid-80s, the Austrian composer writes with a uniquely knowledgeable yet less overtly nostalgic ear that keeps the show's current audience in mind. Acknowledging the time in which the series itself has been created alongside when the show is set, Haslinger's bold and innovative scores have seen his Hollywood career escalate over the last two decades. The man behind the music for Blow, Resident Evil and Death Race has become one of the industry's most sought after composers.

Landreth has released fifteen records over a career spanning over 35 years.

Mr Big - Defying Gravity CD $14.99
Mr Big - Defying Gravity Deluxe Edition, 2PC CD $13.99
DEFYING GRAVITY deftly showcases that patented MR. BIG blend of crunch and melody, from the freight-train ride of opening cut "Open Your Eyes" to the harmony-laden wonderment of "Damn I'm in Love Again" to the grateful/wistful nostalgia of "1992" (recalling the days when the band was flying high atop the singles charts with their international #1 smash "To Be With You") to the barnburning slide-blues closer, "Be Kind." Overall, DEFYING GRAVITY is prime evidence that the only thing MR. BIG remains tethered to is their ongoing pursuit of achieving creative excellence. Original members Eric Martin (singer) (lead vocals), Paul Gilbert (guitars), Billy Sheehan (bass) and Pat Torpey (drums) reunited with producer Kevin Elson (who was behind the boards for the band's 1989 self-titled debut, 1991's LEAN INTO IT and 1993's BUMP AHEAD) for an intensive six-day recording session in Los Angeles.

Ono, Yoko - Approximately Infinite Universe 2PC CD $15.99
There's a fury at the core of Yoko Ono's 1973 rock opus Approximately Infinite Universe that was not apparent on previously recorded efforts. Ono has always been a master of turning pain and sadness into art, but here, there's a clenched-fist intensity that sets it apart in her deep, unparalleled catalogue. Ono is angry. She proved that one can carry a boundless love for humanity and still be furious - furious at male/female relationships, at war, at your partner. Meanwhile, on a sonic level, Ono ups the ante on the more centered rock-n-roll sounds she approached with 1971's Fly. The album is one of the most traditional-sounding rock chapters in Ono's sprawling catalogue. There are moments here that absolutely rival Jersey legends the E Street Band ever dared tread. Approximately Infinite Universe is an essential and progressive piece of Ono's output, both in the advancements she made as a songwriter/conceptualist, and as a solidified statement of her staunch feminist role within the very male-dominated mainstream rock ghetto of the mid-1970's.
Ono, Yoko - Feeling The Space CD $15.99
Feeling the Space is Yoko Ono's fourth solo album, her last one on Apple Records and her last release of the 1970s. (A fifth album, A Story, would be recorded in 1974, but not released until 1997).

It's liner notes parody adult advertising, giving the telephone numbers, birthdates and vital statistics of the male band members. (John Lennon appears as "John O'Cean", with his number listed as "Not for Sale").
Ono, Yoko - Fly 2PC CD $15.99
What you hear on Fly is Yoko Ono's disarming combination of opacity and visceral, personal transparency in full bloom. It's one of the most unbridled, most captivating soul albums ever made. And that's right where she wants you: vulnerable, wide open to any-and-everything, ready to have your world tipped onto it's head. She's a master of spinning your head around. First, you get the Bar Band from Hell of "Midsummer New York" to kick things off. It's about the last thing you'd expect from Ono coming off Plastic Ono Band. But here you are, listening to Ono channeling Elvis. Why am I all of a sudden bopping along to it? At 16-minute-plus, the tranced-out, motorik-inspired boogie "Mind Train" is rough-and-ready for your next basement get down. Movement and perspiration required. Then, we have the absolutely gutting blues of "Don't Worry, Kyoko (Mummy's Only Looking For Her Hand in The Snow)." Full of ache and raw emotion, the song is a love note, a plea for forgiveness, to her estranged daughter Kyoko shot across the universe on a flaming arrow. Ono follows this stampede of emotion with the self-referential torch song "Mrs. Lennon," a wounded song that gets right into the Universal Loneliness. And so here you are. You're devastated. You're exhausted. You're exhilarated. And you're only 1/4 of the way up the mountain that is Fly. Dig deep, traveler, it's worth the climb.

Panka, Peter - Peter Panka's Jane Live At Rockpalast-Bonn 2004 2PC CD $22.99
Peter Panka's Jane Live At Rockpalast-Bonn 2004 - Of the eleven albums that Jane released on Brain between 1972 and 1982 alone, more than two million copies were sold. Cult status albums like their debut "Together" (1972), the successor "Here we are" (1973) or "Lady" (1975), "Fire, Water, Earth & Air" and "Live At Home", both released in 1976 and characterized by powerful organ driven melodic rock, are classified in German rock history as mile stones. The live recorded album "Live At Home" even became the bands' bestseller receiving the "Golden Brain Label" from the record company in September 1977. This era is characterized by tours throughout Europe, TV performances, permanent radio presence and sold-out concerts. - To fit the nostalgic occasion at the "Krautrockpalast" in December 2004 Peter Panka's Jane played a colorful best of program with the most important and popular tunes of their career. Indispensible alongside songs like 'Fire, Water, Earth & Air' or 'Daytime' were, of course, both outstanding compositions of the band, the wonderful dreamy 'Out In The Rain' and the vigorous piece 'Hangman', a classy boogie rocker with an orgiastic guitar solo. The concert at the Bonn "Harmonie" ends with the ballad 'So, So Long', a number which today - after more than twelve years and many Jane shows later - almost sounds like a farewell to singer and drummer Peter Panka.

This, the band's third album, was released in 1972 and featured classic tracks such as 'Flat Footed Woman', 'Singing the Blues on Reds', 'Loud Green Song' and 'Turn Turtle'. This Esoteric Recordings edition of Roll 'Em, Smoke 'Em, Put Another Line Out has been fully sanctioned by all members of the band and their representatives (for the first time ever) and includes three previously unreleased bonus tracks taken from a BBC Radio One John Peel show session from 24th January 1973.

However, as early as 1982 the two prime movers teamed up with original chanteuse Nico, for this historic album which was recorded during a live show at the Bataclan club in Paris, on January 29, 1972, and was originally broadcast on French TV. The concert marked the first time since the breakup of The Velvet Underground that Reed, Cale and Nico were on stage together. Get ready for a little slice of history.

Various Artists - Gotta Get Up: Songs Of Harry Nilsson 1965-1972 UK Import CD $14.99
UK collection. Bookended by his daughter Annie's recording of the title track and Andy Williams' version of 'Remember (Christmas)', this release in Ace Records' highly regarded Songwriters series celebrates the one and only Harry Nilsson. It's one of the great paradoxes of contemporary pop music that Nilsson, one of the most talented and respected American songwriters of the 20th century, is primarily remembered for his stone classic recordings of two songs written by others: Fred Neil's 'Everybody's Talkin' and Badfinger's 'Without You'. Gotta Get Up aims to remedy that by spotlighting two-dozen Nilsson songs from the years 1965 to 1972, including several of which he made no official recordings. Among the highlights are 'Cuddly Toy' and 'Daddy's Song' performed by Nilsson champions the Monkees, Al Kooper's harmony-filled recording of 'Mournin' Glory Story', Canadian folkie Tom Northcott's version of Nilsson's autobiographical '1941' and the MFQ's Phil Spector-produced 'This Could Be The Night', one of Brian Wilson's favorite records.

Waters, Roger - Is This The Life We Really Want? CD $14.99
2017 release from the rock icon. Roger Waters, the creative power and songwriting force behind Pink Floyd, presents Is This The Life We Really Want ?, his first rock album in 25 years. The album is produced and mixed by Nigel Godrich (Radiohead, Paul McCartney, Beck, U2), and includes 12 new Roger Waters musical compositions and studio performances. Roger Waters' last studio album, 1992's Amused To Death, was a prescient study of popular culture, exploring the power of television in the era of the First Gulf War. This long-awaited follow-up, Is This The Life We Really Want ?, is an unflinching commentary on the modern world and uncertain times, and a natural successor to such classic Pink Floyd albums as Animals and The Wall. The musicians on Is This The Life We Really Want? are: Roger Waters (vocals, acoustic, bass), Nigel Godrich (arrangement, sound collages, keyboards, guitar), Gus Seyffert (bass, guitar, keyboards), Jonathan Wilson (guitar, keyboards), Joey Waronker (drums), Roger Mannning (keyboards), Lee Pardini (keyboards) and Lucius (vocals) with Jessica Wolfe and Holly Proctor.
Westbrook, Mike - Live 1972 UK Import CD $19.99
Young, Neil - Decade CD $19.99
Two CDs. Digitally remastered edition. Decade is a compilation by Neil Young, originally released in 1977 as a triple album. It contains 35 of Young's songs recorded between 1966 and 1976, among them five tracks that had been unreleased up to that point. It peaked at #43 on the Billboard Top Pop Albums chart, and was certified platinum by the RIAA in 1986. Compiled by Young himself, with his hand-written liner notes about each track, Decade represents almost every album from his career and various affiliations through 1977 with the exception of Four Way Street and Time Fades Away. Of the previously unreleased songs, "Down to the Wire" features the New Orleans pianist Dr. John with Buffalo Springfield on an item from their shelved Stampede album; "Love Is a Rose" was a minor hit for Linda Ronstadt in 1975; "Winterlong" received a cover by Pixies on the Neil Young tribute album from 1989, The Bridge; and "Campaigner" is a Young song critical of Richard Nixon. The track "Long May You Run" is a different mix to that found on the album of the same name, featuring the harmonies of the full Crosby Stills & Nash before David Crosby and Graham Nash left the recording sessions.
Zorn, John - Midsummer Moons CD $15.99
Blue Cheer - Vincebus Eruptum SACD $28.99
Many have drawn a line from '70s metal back to the thunderous rocking blues of late-'60s Blue Cheer. Bands engaged in experimental rock, garage, stoner rock and grunge owe a debt to this San Francisco group, too; they exploded onto the charts in '68 with this #11 LP and their hit spin on "Summertime Blues. Blue Cheer originally formed in 1966 in San Francisco, California as a sextet. This early line-up did not last though as numerous members departed soon after. Vocalist and bassist Dickie Peterson (R. I. P) then reformed the group with guitarist Leigh Stephens and drummer Paul Whaley, in the process becoming the dynamic trio it is now known as today. According to research, the group's name was taken from a potent form of LSD that was derived from a laundry detergent (supposedly called "Blue Cheer"). In 1968 Blue Cheer released their first album, "Vincebus Eruptum" (some say the title is Latin for "controlled chaos" or "conquering explosion" while others say it is a nonexistent term). On this album Blue Cheer radiates extreme decibels of noise by turning up the volume to maximum capacity on their monolithic wall of Marshall amplifiers. " Their sonic assaults-which also include "Parchman Farm," "Rock Me Baby," "Doctor Please" and more-come through with stunning clarity on this hybrid SACD, available now in a limited, numbered edition! Audio Fidelity.
Dylan, Bob - Times They Are A-changin' SACD-Hybrid $39.99
Limited Mobile Fidelity SACD hybrid pressing. Immediately distinguished by the you're-either-with-us-or-against-us messages of the landmark title track, Bob Dylan's The Times They Are A-Changin' sounds an unmistakable clarion call on behalf of progress and it's unstoppable advancement. One of the Bard's trademark songs, it remains a timeless anthem with a clear sense of common purpose, a musical line in the sand that helped unite various social movements and multiple generations. The reverential 1964 record feeds off the opening tune and it's unmistakable sentiments, marching forward to confront racism, poverty, injustice, and upheaval in a stark, immediate manner unlike few albums before or since. Marking a shift from the looseness and comedy that pepper the preceding The Freewheelin' Bob Dylan, The Times They Are A-Changin' skirts any attempt at humor, sarcasm, or goofiness in favor of utmost seriousness and severity. Seemingly anticipating the dark events surrounding President Kennedy's assassination and the turmoil that followed, Dylan eliminates with conjecture and disguise. Akin to dispatches from the typewriter of literary icons John Steinbeck and William Faulkner, his songs give voices to the voiceless, challenge cultural precepts, upend traditional beliefs with rapier wit and truths, and underline tragedies swept under the rug. As correctly relayed by Dylan expert and cultural critic Greil Marcus, "[The record] forever fixed Bob Dylan in the popular imagination: the protest singer, the young man 'able to see through metal' (again, from Chronicles), to see through the lie and find the truth, then to hammer the truth into words and send them out with a voice that would never break."
Procol Harum - Salty Dog SACD $39.99
Limited numbered hybrid SACD from Mobile Fidelity. Mastered from original master tapes. Procol Harum stood apart for it's aptitude to blend classical figures with rock motifs without coming across as self-indulgent or contrived. Graced with commanding mood pieces, the group's 1969 album - appointed with evocative artwork that pays homage to the Player's Navy Cut logo - exhibits the band's distinctive talents and genre-jumping breadth with an idyllic fusion of performance, composition, and sound.
Spirit - Family That Plays Together SACD $28.99
The Family That Plays Together was originally released in December 1968. On this, the second Spirit album, the group put all of the elements together that made them the legendary band that they were. More than it's predecessor, Spirit, their self-titled and surreal debut, The Family That Plays Together displays the band's ability to play beyond the genre of psychedelic rock. Jazz, rock & roll, and even classical elements combined to create one of the cleanest, most tasteful syntheses of it's day. The group had also improved measurably from their fine debut album, especially in the area of vocals. The album's hit single, "I Got a Line on You," boasts especially strong harmonies as well as one of the greatest rock riffs of the period. - The album's title was inspired by the stepson-stepfather relationship between guitarist Randy California and percussionist Ed Cassidy. The album cover was shot at the Sunset Highland Motel, located at 6830 Sunset Boulevard in Hollywood, California, just across from Hollywood High School. - Spirit's songs covered about every subject under the sun. The first half of the recording is a wonderful and seamless suite, and taken in it's entirety, one of the greatest sides on Los Angeles rock. The SACD includes some excellent bonus tracks. "So Little to Say" is one of Jay Ferguson's finest compositions ever, and the jazz-inspired instrumentals such as "Fog" and "Space Chile" showcase pianist John Locke as one of the most inspired and lyrical players in the rock idiom. All in all, a classic album and a true landmark. - Tracks such as "It Shall Be" and "Silky Sam" demonstrate the ease with which the ensemble can incorporate jazz into their idiosyncratic form of rock, while "Jewish" and "Aren't You Glad" show the band's competence in exploiting both world music and jam rock.
Spirit - Spirit SACD $28.99
Stealers Wheel - Stealers Wheel SACD $35.99
'Stuck in the Middle Top-Ten Hit Single in the UK and US! FM Radio Classic Stuck in the Middle Immortalized in Quentin Tarantino's Reservoir Dogs! 'K-Billy's Super Sounds of the '70s weekend just keeps on truckin'...' The short but legendary recording career of Stealers Wheel is defined by the pinnacle reached with it's first two albums. Listening to this extraordinary debut effort it's easy to hear why many thought Gerry Rafferty and Joe Egan's Stealer's Wheel would become the UK's answer to Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young. The duo's distinctive style is in full evidence, marrying ultra-catchy hooks and melodies to thoughtful lyrics and gorgeous vocal harmonies. As a band, Stealers Wheel was already disintegrating even as it was being formed. Players were being shifted in and out of the lineup right up to the recording sessions for this debut record, and leader Gerry Rafferty split from the band before the LP's official release (see the vintage video for 'Stuck in the Middle' below, with Egan miming the lead vocal in Rafferty's absence!). However, as 'Stuck in the Middle' streaked up the charts in the US and the UK, peaking at #6 in the US, Rafferty came back and the band eventually became Rafferty and Egan with backing players in the studio and on tour. Songs from Stealers Wheel's stellar first pair of LPs have gotten steady airplay since they were released, and of course Gerry Rafferty's breakout success with his solo album City to City shined a bright light on his earlier efforts. Stealers Wheel became an indelible element of pop culture for new generations when maverick director Quentin Tarantino built a major set piece of his own debut Reservoir Dogs around the infectious hooks of 'Stuck in the Middle.' The scene is as grisly as it is unforgettable and of course it's set up brilliantly by Steven Wright's voice as the world's dryest DJ Format: SACD, Hybrid, Stereo, Remastered:

Holdsworth, Allan - The Man Who Changed Guitar Forever - Bonus Tracks, Boxed Set, 12PC CD $114.99
Twelve CD box set collection featuring all of Allan Holdsworth's solo albums from 1982-2003. That title is no hyperbole-it was a proclamation that ran on the cover of Guitar Player Magazine in 2008, and is a feeling shared by fans and guitarists all around the world. Still, though, Holdsworth remains largely under-rated; many who admire his most famous work have overlooked dozens of fascinating finds to be made on his decades of recordings.

And a 40-page booklet full of liner notes and archival photos. You also get previously unreleased bonus tracks, and all these albums have been newly remastered from the original tapes: I.O.U. (1982), Road Games (1983), Metal Fatigue (1985), Atavachron (1986), Sand (1987), Secrets (1989), Wardenclyffe Tower (1992), Hard Hat Area (1993), None Too Soon (1996), The Sixteen Men Of Tain (2000), Flat Tire (2001) and Then! (2003).

Ashley, Robert - Crash - 2PC CD $24.99
Ashton Gardner & Dyke - Ashton Gardner & Dyke CD $16.99
Digitally remastered and expanded edition. Ashton, Gardner and Dyke were a power rock trio, most popular in the early 1970s. They are best remembered for their song, "Resurrection Shuffle", a transatlantic Top 40 success in 1971. Their debut album is a markedly different beast than fans of their former bands, the Remo Four and Creation, might have expected. Heavily influenced by the trio's shared love for jazz-rock, it's nine songs are moods as much as music, only occasionally stepping out into something instantly recognizable - distinctive covers of the Bee Gees' "New York Mining Disaster 1941" and Mose Allison's "Young Man Blues" are highlights. But the album peaks with it's closing track, "As It Was in the First Place" a lengthy Ashton adaptation from the classical "Adagio from Concierto de Aranjuez." With an arrangement borrowed from the Modern Jazz Quartet's own interpretation of the piece (among Tony Ashton's idols, few were more significant than MJQ's John Lewis), Ashton and Roy Dyke had already had one stab at the track, recording it with producer George Harrison during the last days of the Remo Four. The new version completely rewired that earlier performance, and stands as one of the pinnacles of British jazz-rock. The single "Maiden Voyage" offers another, while the group's sense of humor is well-evidenced by the similarly titled and themed pieces "Billy and his Piano Without" and "Billy and His Piano With."
Atomic Rooster - Devil's Answer - Atomic Rooster CD $16.99
CD reissue. Atomic Rooster was an English progressive rock band originally composed of former members of the The Crazy World of Arthur Brown.

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

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

Garcia, Jerry - Garcialive Volume Eight: November 23rd, 1991 Bradley Center - 2PC CD $15.99
Two CD live archive release from the late Grateful Dead leader. GarciaLive Volume Eight presents the Jerry Garcia Band's November 23rd, 1991 performance at the Bradley Center in Milwaukee, WI. The fall '91 tour as a whole is widely regarded as one of Garcia's finest and this particular Saturday evening serves as a further testament to the legend. Fans in attendance at the Bradley Center braved an intense snowstorm and the audience's palpable energy and enthusiasm was a likely catalyst for this spirited performance. Keyboardist Melvin Seals summarized the group nicely stating 'That was the magic band. It's not that the other scenarios didn't work out but once we got to that level of the band with (drummer) Dave Kemper, John Kahn, Jerry, myself and the singers, Jackie (LaBranch) and Gloria (Jones) we all knew we had something special. That was the band.'

Written, performed, produced and mixed by Steve Jansen.

It s a state-of-the-art recording, embracing both classic and modern ways of music production.

Jazz Passengers - Still Life With Trouble CD $14.99
Jethro Tull - An Introduction To CD $8.99
Jethro Tull - Jethro Tull - The String Quartets CD $16.99
A massive treat for Jethro Tull fans and classical aficionados alike: The String Quartets is an album of classic Jethro Tull repertoire, imaginatively arranged for Classical string quartet with the flute, guitar and vocals of songwriter and producer Ian Anderson. For some time, Ian (Jethro Tull frontman and virtuoso flautist) and John O'Hara (keyboard player with Tull and Anderson) had discussed the prospect of a specially conceived album of classic Jethro Tull repertoire orchestrated for a string quartet. Ian and John first saw the Carducci Quartet at the London Symphony Orchestra's LSO St Luke's and, mesmerized by the group's symbiotic relationship which results in their playing as one single musical organism, Ian invited them to take part in the recording. Two violins, a viola and a cello make up that perfect combination of instruments that is the string quartet. Composers such as Beethoven, Bartók and Britten have written for it, and Anderson's music is reborn in this format. With judicious additions of flute, acoustic guitar and mandolin along with a few vocal sections, this album offers Tull fans the opportunity to enjoy familiar melodies and songs within the styling and traditions of Classical Music.

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

Marino, Frank - Juggernaut RM, With Book, UK - Import CD $18.99
Digitally remastered edition of this 1982 album from the legendary guitarist. Includes 16 page full-color booklet, new essay about the making of the album, enhanced artwork and previously unseen photos. For Frank, despite his reputation for endless soloing, the goal was always about crafting songs that had meaning and weight. Nowhere is this better demonstrated than on the Juggernaut album. Recorded and released in 1982, the record showcases Frank in spectacular form, setting out a stall that solidly welds his penchant for blistering hard rock and memorable songs. The title track alone is arguably his greatest triumph, fusing a rock solid riff with a synthetic dusting of melody.
Marino, Frank - Power Of Rock N Roll RM, With Book, UK - Import CD $18.99
Digitally remastered edition of this 1981 album from the legendary guitarist. Includes 16 page full-color booklet, new essay about the making of the album, enhanced artwork and previously unseen photos. Released in 1981 and once again self-produced, The Power Of Rock And Roll was a triumph, seeing Frank setting fire to convention with a collection of hard hitting, no nonsense rock that sounded like a defiant call to arms. It also signaled other major changes; splitting with long time management Leber-Krebs and cementing the appointment of his brother Vince Marino, on rhythm guitar, as a full time member of the group. Sharper, infinitely more focused and taking no prisoners, the eight tracks are veritable firecrackers, making good on his intent to deliver a record that, by all rights, should have catapulted him to sizeable success beyond his cult appeal.
Marino, Frank & Mahogany Rush - Live Bonus Tracks, RM, With Book, UK - Import CD $18.99
Digitally remastered and expanded edition of this live album from the legendary guitarist. Includes two bonus tracks plus 16 page full-color booklet, new essay about the making of the album, enhanced artwork and previously unseen photos. The commonly held belief about Frank Marino, leader of Mahogany Rush, is that he was motivated by the dead spirit of Jimi Hendrix. This was a misquote taken from an early interview which persisted throughout his career and, to a degree, still dogs his activities to this very day. Of course it was pure hokum and a myth utilized to successfully advance his presence in the market place. Harnessing a wealth of strong material the band recorded several dates on their 1977 world tour in order to compile a comprehensive selection of choice cuts. Of course Frank's guitar is the prominent instrument showcasing incredible fluidity and aggression as well as an obvious nod in the style of Jimi Hendrix, but as a power trio the dexterous support of bassist Paul Harwood and drummer Jimmy Ayoub makes the recordings all the more arresting. We've added two bonus tracks taken from the bands performance at the 1978 California Jam II festival held in front of an impressive 350,000 fans.
Marino, Frank & Mahogany Rush - What's Next RM, With Book, UK - Import CD $18.99
Digitally remastered edition of this 1980 album from the legendary guitarist. Includes 16 page full-color booklet, new essay about the making of the album, enhanced artwork and previously unseen photos. Amazingly this was Frank Marino's seventh studio album in almost as many years, an accomplishment made even more impressive by the amount of live work that he had stashed under his belt. Marino had become a notorious road dog, playing everywhere and anywhere, helping to establish him as one of the great showmen of the era. What's Next was an important milestone in Frank's career, not only because the music was getting far more precise but because the band had expanded to a four piece after years working as a power trio.

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

Osi - Blood CD $13.99
Pacific Gas & Electric - Pacific Gas & Electric Holland - Import CD $15.99
Partridge, Andy - Powers UK - Import CD $13.99
Reissue of this 2010 experimental release from the former leader of XTC. CD in jewel case with 12 pages of sleeve notes and illustrations by long-time Ape House sleeve artist Andrew Swainson. A Long time ago, in a library far away, (well, Swindon, actually), a shy schoolboy who loved books but was a slow reader, borrowed three science fiction books per week. He didn't read them. Instead, mesmerized by the covers, he imagined his own stories to match the cover paintings which he stared at intently for hours. Richard M. Powers had been the principal artist, illustrator among illustrators and guide to unleashing Andy Partridge's imagination among the stars and galaxies. Andy's response was to record a sort of soundtrack to the paintings which had been so inspirational to him. The resulting album conjures, via 12 enigmatic pieces - akin to a virtual Musique concrete (with the computer/editing process replacing the more cumbersome scissors/tape method) - a musical accompaniment to the variety of alien landscapes which Powers illustrated so profusely. It also works as a standalone album of experimental music.
Pell, Axel Rudi - The Ballads V CD $15.99
Even if you are not attending the mighty School of Rock, you know one of those bloody emotional moments when the lead guitar sings it's way through the solo and the chorus comes back while you are flying on the wings of heaven. Or something else. We all need a little bit of silence sometimes, just to stop from being part of this crazy world we live in. One of the finest moments on this ballad compilation is the new song "On The Edge Of Our Time", being one of the best ballads he's ever written to date. But the climax of "The Ballads V" is without a doubt the fascinating new song "Love's Holding On". Singer Johnny Gioeli is joined by Bonnie Tyler here! There are 9 more songs, of course, pretty much known from his previous albums (e.g. Neil Young' "Hey Hey My My " and Deep Purple' "Mistreated") which wraps up another classic, dynamic and high-quality Axel Rudi Pell album. As one fan from Israel said on Facebook: "If there was justice in the music business, your ballads would be as big as the Scorpions one."

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

Summers, Andy - Triboluminescence UK - Import CD $14.99
2017 release from the veteran British guitarist. Triboluminescence is the follow up recording by Andy Summers to his 2016 release Metal Dog. In this release, Summers once again delves into the deep exotic textures which characterized Metal Dog saying that part of his quest is always to find fresh if not alien sounds that avoid all the standard electric guitar cliches. If Summers takes a position on his music, he proves it with the disparate exotic threads and lyricism heard on the tracks of Triboluminescence - generated from non-standard tunings hammered guitars in tandem, looping, baritone guitar, terz guitar percussion and fretless bass and cello. Summers plays all instruments on the album apart from cello by Artyom Manukian
Sun Ra - Thunder Of The Gods - Wallet CD $14.99
Years after Herman Poole "LeSony'r Ra" Blount "left the planet" he's still trying to reach us, to wake us up and to change our destiny. Sun Ra and the Arkestra weren't a traditional studio band, and every star in the vast galaxy of their discography reflects this. The origins of these records can be hard to pinpoint at times, but when it comes to Thunder Of The Gods, it's a bit easier. "Calling Planet Earth - We'll Wait For You" was discovered on tapes from Ra's, Universe In Blue, believed to be recorded in '71. The raucous title track and "Moonshots Across the Sky" are unearthed from the '66 Strange Strings sessions. Modern Harmonic has once again paired Ra's sonic art with the visual art of "The Father of Modern Space Art," Chesley Bonestell, whose 1952 work "Formation of the Earth's Continents" spralls across the front and back covers.

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

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

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

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