Pink Floyd/Animals [2018 Remix Deluxe Edition] ....LP + CD + DVD + Blu-Ray Box Set $99.99
Animals 2018 Remix - The iconic 1977 Pink Floyd album has been remixed for the first
time by James Guthrie. Animals is a concept album, focusing on the social-political
conditions of mid-1970s Britain, and was a change from the style of the band's earlier
work. The album was developed from a collection of unrelated songs into a concept which
describes the apparent social and moral decay of society, likening the human condition to
that of animals. Taking inspiration from George Orwell's Animal Farm, the album depicts
the different classes of people as animals with pigs being at the top of the social chain,
dropping down to the sheep as the mindless herd following what they are told, with dogs as
the business bosses getting fat on the money and power they hold over the other. Although
it's been a long time since 1977, the narrative of the album still resonates today as our
social and economic situation mirrors that of the time. Please note - the Deluxe Box
Set will be released a few weeks after the CD and Blu-Ray.

Van der Graaf Generator/Interference Patterns: The Recordings 2005-2016 ....import 13 CD + DVD NTSC Region 0 Box Set $119.99
14 disc limited edition boxed set featuring all of the recordings by Van Der Graaf Generator issued between 2005 and 2016. Featuring 13 CDs and an NTSC/Region Free DVD. It includes the albums 'Present,' 'Real Time,' 'Trisector,' 'Live at the Paradiso,' 'A Grounding in Numbers,' 'Alt,' 'Merlin Atmos' and 'Do Not Disturb' plus rare additional live recordings issued only in Japan and the DVD 'Live at the Paradiso.' Van der Graaf Generator were one of the most original and inspiring bands of the 1970s. When Peter Hamill, Hugh Banton, Guy Evans and David Jackson announced their reformation in 2005 to perform concerts and to record a new album, it took many by surprise, but the group proved they were still making relevant and truly progressive music. Their reunion would not be a short-lived affair, as VdGG continued to record a series of excellent studio and live albums despite the departure of David Jackson in late 2005 following the release of the album 'Present.' Over the next ten years VdGG issued a string of albums and toured as the mood took them. This boxed set celebrates this second era of Van der Graaf Generator with all of the albums issued by the band between 2005 and 2016 and includes the long deleted live double album and concert DVD 'Live at the Paradiso' and the rare additional live CD previously issued only on the limited Japanese release of 'Real Time.' 'Interference Patterns' includes a 96-page book with an extensive new essay and band interviews by Sid Smith and features each album in replica album sleeves.

UK/Alive in America ....CD $15.99
2007 release. U.K. are a British progressive rock supergroup that were active from 1977 until 1980.

This live recording features the original quartet with Bruford and Holdsworth and includes songs that were later to be released on the Danger Money album recorded as a trio with Bozzio.

Two CD + Blu-ray edition & Limited 2CD/2DVD set. In September and October of 2021, Steve Hackett and his band embarked on their first tour in nearly two years, this time bringing the legendary Genesis live album, 'Seconds Out,' to life in full, alongside a host of solo favourites and tracks from his most recent studio album 'Surrender of Silence.' Recorded & filmed in Manchester on the 24th September 2021, this set saw the band in incredible form as they ram through tracks including 'Squonk,' 'Supper's Ready' and 'The Lamb Lies Down on Broadway,' as well as solo cuts including 'Every Day' & 'The Devil's Cathedral.' 'Genesis Revisited Live: Seconds Out & More' is a brilliant document of the bands triumphant return to the stage.

Esoteric Recordings are repressing their 2013 releases of these remastered and sonically enhanced editions of the albums recorded for the RCA label by Vangelis. All of these reissues come in deluxe digipak designs, with new masters personally supervised by Vangelis. The magnificent "Heaven & Hell" was the first album by Vangelis to be released by RCA Records in 1975 and was also the first album to be recorded at his personal Nemo Studios in London. This epic work in two parts featured the English Chamber Choir (conducted by Guy Protheroe) and Vangelis' first collaboration with Jon Anderson, 'So Long Ago, So Clear.' The superb "Albedo 0.39" was Vangelis' second album to be released by RCA Records and was recorded at Nemo, his personal studio in London, in 1976. This conceptual work, inspired by space and galactic physics, took its name from the planet Earth's albedo, (the proportion of the light a planet receives that is reflected back into outer space), as it was in 1976. The album features the iconic 'Pulstar' and saw Vangelis push the perceived boundaries of the synthesizer as a musical instrument to new dimensions. In addition, Vangelis played a wide variety of other instruments on this stunning work. Both Heaven & Hell and Albedo 0.39 were heavily drawn upon for the soundtrack of Carl Sagan's Cosmos series. The magnificent "Spiral" was Vangelis' third album for RCA Records. Released in 1977, the album was recorded at Nemo and was a defining electronic album of the era, with Vangelis demonstrating his total mastery of the synthesizer technology of the period. Pieces such as the majestic 'To the Unknown Man' brought electronic music to new dimensions. The ground-breaking experimental work "Beaubourg" was Vangelis' fourth and final album for RCA Records. Released in 1978, the album was recorded at Nemo. These Esoteric Recordings releases (undertaken with the full approval and supervision of Vangelis himself) feature booklets that restore the original album artwork.

Toto & Brian Eno/Dune [Original Soundtrack] ....import CD $21.99
Reissue. Grammy award winning band Toto, tasked with composing the soundtrack for the 1984 film; Dune. Accompanied by the Vienna Symphony Orchestra and a haunting single from Brian Eno ("Prophecy Theme"), they managed to inject Dune with the barren majesty it deserves. Toto, known for a musical style that combines elements of pop, rock, soul, funk, blues and jazz, can comfortably add ambient to their repertoire after creating a perfect synthesis of orchestral and synthesizer music. There is a beautiful calm flowing feel throughout with a splash of psychedelic ("Paul Takes the Water of Life"), and the occasional dramatic part ("First Attack") to create some diversity from the satisfying darkness. This album can be called a true sci-fi cult classic.
Tim Finn & Phil Manzanera/The Ghost of Santiago ....CD $15.99
The Ghost Of Santiago is the latest album to be released by Tim Finn and Phil Manzanera. This new album, featuring 10 new co-written songs, is the follow up to last years critically acclaimed album by the two, Caught by the Heart. During lockdown Tim and Phil, each working in their home studios some 12,000 miles apart, jointly wrote over 20 new songs, finding the time and space of a pandemic-restricted life leading to an incredible period of artistic creativity. There was no end goal in sight, just the sheer pleasure of two old friends making music together. This artistic freedom has produced songs that live in the moment. They are a moving and inspiring testament to a great singer-songwriter and composer-guitarist coming together in cyber-space and seeing where the music takes them.

Banco del Mutuo Soccorso/Orlando: Le Forme dell'Amore
Banco del Mutuo Soccorso/Orlando: Le Forme dell'Amore ....import Gatefold Black 2 LP + CD & LP-Booklet Set $69.99
Banco del Mutuo Soccorso celebrate 50 years in music with possibly their most ambitious concept album since the release of Darwin in 1972. Vittorio Nocenzi was working on this new album's musical concept for years together with his son Michaelangelo and lyricist Paolo Lugli. Narrating a real XIV century poem through different songs and possibly describing the facts and the ideals was a mountain to climb. The result of the immense work in the studio is fully represented in an epic album that will set new parameters for progressive rock fans. Undoubtedly Banco has always been strongly related to their roots, but 'Orlando: Le Forme dell'Amore' is a definitive proof of how traditional prog rock can evolve in a modern new blend of sound and spirit. The choice of singing the tracks on this album only in Italian (as before on Transiberiana) confirms the band's will to stay loyal to what they've been doing from the very beginning. In order to help the fans understand and follow the lyrics better on a track by track basis, English translations of the lyrics will be included in the artwork, along with the original Italian lyrics.

Wigwam/Fairyport [Deluxe Edition] ....import 2 CD Set $32.99
Two CD deluxe edition with previously unreleased bonus material. We're proud to present an extravagant 51st anniversary edition of Wigwam's game-changing prog rock classic Fairyport. To create the anniversary package we teamed up with Jukka Gustavson and went through a plethora of material. Gustavson hand-picked the best possible bonus materials. The legendary jam Rave-up for the Roadies, featuring Jukka Tolonen, was located in its original 36 minute form and can now be appreciated for the first time. The original truncated 17-minute version is not included. Most original reels to Fairyport are lost, but we salvaged a few demo session tapes plus some eight track reels of the album's work-in-progress stage. Four tracks were chosen by Gustavson to be added here. It should be noted that the two album session tracks feature the original violin parts, which were left off the final product. All material was mixed from the original reels by Risto Hemmi at Finnvox. The set also features a set of live tracks. For this Gustavson picked material from a show the band played in Stockholm while working on the album's demo sessions. There's an earliest existing version of Losing Hold plus a 15-minute medley of several tracks. Also included is a 20-minute live set from the first ever Ruisrock in 1970, a couple of months before the band entered the studio. Here Wigwam perform three classics by The Band. All material has been remastered at Finnvox by Pauli Saastamoinen.

Flash/In the USA - Live Recordings 1972-73 ....3 CD Set $29.99
Restored live recordings of the classic progressive rock band Flash from the 1970s. Featuring ex-Yes guitarist Peter Banks, singer Colin Carter, bassist Ray Bennett and drummer Mike Hough, the band had three Billboard charting albums, and a top 30 single with "Small Beginnings." Across three discs, this beautifully curated set contains twenty-two tracks from seven performances, most of them previously unavailable. 32-page booklet features exclusive band interviews, unpublished photographs, and an itinerary of their tours during the golden age of rock concerts in the USA. Warning: be advised these are likely audience recordings.
Flash/In the Can ....import CD $24.99
Steamhammer/Wailing Again ....import CD $18.99
British blues-rock band Steamhammere was formed at the end of 1968 by Martin Quittenton (guitar), Kieran White (vocals, harmonica, guitar), Martin Pugh (guitar), Steve Davy (bass) and Michael Rushton (drums). Their first album Reflections (AKA Junior's Wailing) was released in 1969. Pete Sears played piano on this album before he joined Rod Stewart on his four early classic recordings. Pugh also played on Rod Stewart's first solo album, The Rod Stewart Album (AKA An Old Raincoat Would Never Let You Down) with Ron Wood, Mickey Waller, Martin Quittenton and Keith Emerson. After Reflections, Quittenton and Rushton both quit the band to be replaced by Mick Bradley (drums) and Steve Joliffe of Tangerine Dream (sax, flute), who gave a jazzy influence to the band in their second album, Mk. II (1969). Shortly after this release, Joliffe left the band, which continued as a four piece for their third album Mountains (1970), which was a returning to the blues-rock of the first album. After a major turnover, Pugh and Bradley invited Louis Cennamo of the original Renaissance (bass) and, along with special guest Garth Watt-Roy (vocals), recorded Speech in 1971. This last album was released posthumously, after Bradley's death in 1972. Now, exactly 50 years after the release of Speech and 53 years after Pugh and Sears collaborated on the band's first LP, Steamhammer will release a new album, Wailing Again. Featuring beside 1968 founder member Martin Pugh (guitars) and Pete Sears (bass, keys & background vocals), member of Jefferson Starship from 1974 to 1987, Manfred Mann's Earth Band - drummer John Lingwood, who joined Steamhammer in 1972, and Phil Colombatto (vocals & harmonica).

Various Artists/High in the Morning: British Progressive Pop Sounds of 1973 ....import 3 CD Set $36.99
Latest installment of Grapefruit's popular year-by-year overviews of the more melodic end of the early '70s UK progressive rock scene. A four-hour compilation featuring big hits, key album tracks, cult classics and rarities from 1973. 1973 was another significant year in British pop, with the recent arrival of glam - including the Bryan Ferry-led Roxy Music, who proved that "avant rock" could be a commercial proposition - inspiring many underground bands to adopt a more streamlined sound. That more song-based approach helped give the 1973 singles chart a new energy, with memorable 45s from Mott the Hoople, Manfred Mann's Earthband, Faces, Status Quo, Medicine Head and Nazareth. Though they fell short of the charts, some of the era's more idiosyncratic singer-songwriter talents - Kevin Ayers, Al Stewart, Kevin Coyne - also issued much-loved, radio-friendly singles. On the live circuit, the UK free festival scene was dominated by a new hippie/glam/space rock convergence, with brand leaders Hawkwind joined by the likes of The Pink Fairies and Arthur Brown's Kingdom Come. Featuring all of the above names as well as Thin Lizzy, The Kinks, Sensational Alex Harvey Band, Caravan, Procol Harum, Stealers Wheel, Roy Wood, Rare Bird, Badfinger, Free, Family and many others, 'High in the Morning' is a fascinating three-CD, four-hour appraisal of the 1973 British rock and pop scene. Housed in a clamshell box that features a classic crowd shot from that year's Windsor free festival, 'High in the Morning' includes a 48-page booklet that's packed with rare photos, quotes and biographical information.

The tribute album features reworkings by The National, Idles, Man Man, Mogwai, Guerilla Toss, Alexis Taylor, and more.
Ryuichi Sakamoto & Alva Noto/Revep ....import CD $21.99
Revep is the third collaboration record between Japanese composer Ryuichi Sakamoto and German electronic artist Carsten Nicolai (here credited as Alva Noto). This EP continues the series titled the Virus Series and was originally released in 2006. The compositions revolve around a collaborative new arrangement of Sakamoto's classic "Merry Christmas Mr. Lawrence," the theme music to the 1983 movie of the same title starring David Bowie, Takeshi Kitano, and Ryuichi Sakamoto himself.

Blackfield/Open Mind: The Best of Blackfield ....import CD $15.99
Blackfield is the collaboration between Israeli songwriter & musician Aviv Geffen & British musician & producer Steven Wilson. The collaboration, extending from their self-titled debut in 2004 to their superb return with album 'V' produced with Alan Parsons in 2017 has proven to be a prolific partnership for creating striking & affecting music. This collection, curated by Wilson & Geffen, selects the best works from an impressively rich Blackfield catalogue with each of the five records combining both sweet & tart elements. It's an uncommonly potent mixture. Perhaps the debut album's Lasse Hoile cover art-a bottled elixir lurking in the gloomy shadows of an apothecary-signifies that Blackfield is a dark medicine to be administered through the listener's ear. There's no recipe on the aged and frayed label of the bottle. Yet some lyrical ingredients can be discerned within the mix: Take a dash of childhood memory, sprinkle in some heartbreak, pour in a drop of blood from an open vein, add a pinch of angry conscience (carefully weighed), puree the dew of a kiss & then garnish with the bitter tears of adult disillusionment. Stir carefully & name it after the very first Blackfield collaboration: "Open Mind." Steven Wilson - "Blackfield appealed to me because it was a chance to focus firmly on the art of the classic pop song with concise songs and strong melodies, harmonies, orchestration & a very lush 'golden' production."

Gary Lucas/The Great Lost Gods and Monsters ....CD $17.99
Somewhere between a steamroller and hellhound train, this record is here to run you over. The term that pops in my teeming word-cloud is drive. Taut and loose at the same time, monolithic, monomaniacal and when Lucas's guitar bellows and screams, just plain maniacal, this downtown supergroup - recorded live in 2006 - is more cohesive and focused than a hundred together-forever bands. So much so you wonder how the musicians could ever stand to be apart. Or how anyone could have left this on the shelf. Experience has taught me to look askance at live rock albums (and while this may be avant-rock, the emphasis is resolutely on the back of the hyphen). But these sturdy, mostly up-tempo tunes, mostly by Lucas, gain crazy authority amid the sweat and beer. And the driving sound, produced by band member - and as reaffirmed here, B3 virtuoso - Jerry Harrison, gains an overdriven quality that's perfect. In an imperfect, noisy way. You may know the origin story of Gary Lucas - which starts with Beefheart (the idol he would eventually serve as co-lead guitarist) and continues through Jeff Buckley (the protege with whom he wrote "Grace" and "Mojo Pin"). If you don't, it's a good 'un. You may know Billy Ficca, founding member of Television. Ernie Brooks from the Modern Lovers. Harrison, from the Lovers and Talking Heads. Jason Candler, downtown sax ace. And the gifted Joe Hendel on 'bone. But if you were curious about a through-line from "Sing Sing Sing" to "Third Stone from the Sun" to "20th Century Schizoid Man" - with stops for the Velvets, Wagner, Zappa, the Allmans, Sun Ra, Chet Atkins and Bukka White - climb abroad. Turns out, it's not this album that was lost. It was us.
Creedence Clearwater Revival/At the Royal Albert Hall
Creedence Clearwater Revival/At the Royal Albert Hall [Master Quality Authenticated, HQCD] ....Japanese import CD $45.99
This album marks the debut release of the highly-anticipated recording of Creedence Clearwater Revival live at London's prestigious Royal Albert Hall. More than 50 years after the legendary 1970 show, the original multitrack tapes have been meticulously restored and mixed by Grammy-winning producer Giles Martin and engineer Sam Okell. The hits-packed setlist includes such classics as "Fortunate Son," "Proud Mary," "Bad Moon Rising," "Born on the Bayou" and more. Please note this is the REAL Albert Hall concert and not a re-issue of the '70s album that later proved NOT to be the Royal Albert Hall performance and had to be retitled "The Concert."

Neil Young/Time Fades Away ....CD $18.99
Previously available as part of one of Neil Young's Official Release Series box sets, Time Fades Away finally gets a stand alone CD release! Time Fades Away is a 1973 live album. Consisting of previously unreleased material, it was recorded with The Stray Gators on the support tour following 1972's highly successful album Harvest. Due to Young's dissatisfaction with the tour, it was omitted from his catalogue and not released on CD until 2017. The album is the first of the so-called "Ditch Trilogy" of albums that Young recorded following the major success of Harvest, whereupon the scope of his success and acclaim became so apparent that Young subsequently experienced alienation from his music and career. Nevertheless, Time Fades Away received much critical praise and was widely pirated after lapsing out of print because of the ensuing demand from fans.

Ian Hunter/Overnight Angels ....import CD $19.99
Special deluxe collector's edition; fully remastered audio shaped from 24 BIT digital technology; 16 page full colour booklet - 4,000 word essay, enhanced artwork and new interviews. Ian Hunter IS unquestionably amongst the elite of British rock. As the leader of Mott the Hoople, his style, voice and song writing ability helped the band into the charts on both sides of the Atlantic and also secured him the respect and admiration of fellow musicians across the spectrum, from pop to rock. This was Ian's third solo album post Mott the Hoople, recorded with the intent to silence critics that he'd gone 'soft' on his previous solo album. Enlisting the heavy-duty firepower of producer Roy Thomas Baker (Queen, Foreigner, Free) and recruiting new band members, including lauded guitarist Earl Slick, Foreigner drummer Dennis Elliott (Curly Smith actually plays on the album), Sparks member Peter Oxendale on keyboards and former Chicken Shack bassist Rob Rawlinson. The results are spectacular, conjuring up a variety of styles but always heavy via the robust production values of Baker and his engineer Gary Lyons. Recorded in Canada at Le Studio, Quebec and polished in London, the record contains a selection of now classic tracks, including 'Justice of the Peace,' 'Wild 'n' Free,' 'Golden Opportunity' and 'Overnight Angels,' all indicating that Hunter had shed another skin in a serious intent to impress not only his existing fan base but also to attract curious onlookers keeping tabs on his career development.
Deep Purple/Bombay Calling [Live in '95] ....2 CD + DVD Set $22.99
Bombay Calling (Live in '95) (2 CD + DVD) "Bombay Calling" was recorded in early 1995 and is one of the first shows Deep Purple played with Steve Morse showcasing his virtuosic guitar skills and some of the new material would later make it onto the widely celebrated studio album "Purpendicular." Astonishingly, the long thought lost master tapes for this unforgettable show in Mumbai were found lying around in an old cardboard box in November 1999. A true gem for any fan, they offer rare insight into the extraordinary talents of this phenomenal rock band. The Indian press gave the concert rave reviews, with many claiming it to be the best rock show ever staged in India.
Grateful Dead/Madison Square Garden, New York, NY 3/ 9/ 81 ....3 CD Set $29.99
Three CDs. Madison Square Garden, the world famous New York City arena, was a home away from home for The Grateful Dead, a reliable sanctuary where the band would ultimately play 52 shows - a record at the time. The venue's fine acoustics combined with the fans' unbridled energy consistently brought out the best in the Dead. At the band's 2015 induction ceremony into Madison Square Garden's Walk of Fame, Bobby Weir said "This place was both horrifying and titillating with an audience that was discerning but ravenous. We had to rise to the occasion every time."
Alice Cooper/Live at the Astroturf ....CD + Blu-Ray $19.99
By 1974, the Alice Cooper group had risen to the upper echelon of rock stardom... and then, parted ways. In October 2015, over 40 years later, record store owner and superfan Chris Penn convinced the original line-up to reunite for a very special performance at his record store Good Records in Dallas, Texas. Alice Cooper (vocals), Michael Bruce (guitar), Dennis Dunaway (bass) and Neal Smith (drums) were joined on stage by Alice's current guitarist Ryan Roxie (standing in for the late Glen Buxton).

Centipede/Septober Energy ....import 2 CD Set $27.99
Newly remastered from the original RCA tapes, the classic double album from 1971 by the legendary ensemble Centipede. Produced by Robert Fripp and featuring Keith Tippett, Julie Tippett, Robert Wyatt, Ian McDonald, Elton Dean, John Marshall, Brian Godding, Roy Babbington, Karl Jenkins, Ian Carr, Brian Belshaw, Mike Patto, Zoot Money, Maggie Nichols and many more. Fully restored artwork with an illustrated booklet and essay by Sid Smith. Celebrated free jazz pianist and composer Keith Tippett formed the legendary jazz/progressive rock ensemble Centipede, a group of more than 50 musicians formed in 1970, to perform his extended work 'Septober Energy' on the concert stage. The musicians involved were the finest performers in the worlds of British jazz and progressive rock and featured members of Soft Machine (Robert Wyatt, Elton Dean, Nick Evans, Mark Charig), Nucleus (Ian Carr, Karl Jenkins, Jeff Clyne, Roy Babbington, John Marshall) King Crimson (Robert Fripp, Ian McDonald, Boz Burrell) and Blossom Toes (Brian Godding, Brian Belshaw) and vocalist Julie Tippett. The first Centipede concert took place at The Lyceum in London in November 1970 and was enthusiastically received by both critics and aficionados (including Mike Oldfield who was inspired to compose 'Tubular Bells' as a result of attending the concert). In April 1971 the group was signed to RCA Records' "progressive" imprint Neon, and the album 'Septober Energy' was recorded at Wessex Studios in London in June 1971. Robert Fripp would concentrate his talents solely on the role of producer of the sessions and a number of vocalists including Julie Tippett, Mike Patto, Zoot Money and Maggie Nichols would also bring their abilities to the sessions. The resulting album was issued in October 1971. This new Esoteric Recordings edition has been newly remastered from the original RCA Records master tapes and includes an illustrated booklet with a new essay by Sid Smith.

Miles Davis/The Bootleg Series Vol. 7: That's What Happened 1982-1985 ....3 CD Set $29.99
That's What Happened 1982-1985: Bootleg Volume 7 is the next installment in the celebrated, award-winning archival series that began in 2011, shining an in-depth light onto different eras of the legendary career of Miles Davis. In the 1980s, popular music had moved to a smoother, electronic-based sound that traded the steam of previous years for subdued arrangements meant to elicit peace and deep reflection. Miles Davis embraced this era, pulling inspiration from FM radio and an upstart music video channel called MTV. He was searching for the next frontier, letting his creativity roam. This music on The Bootleg Series Vol. 7 captures that exploration, and finds Miles beginning to re-emerge in a creative landscape far different than the one he left in 1975. He's touched every inch of pop culture while keeping true to his iconoclastic vision of jazz as amorphous art that's supposed to bend and flow and mutate to something else. On That's What Happened, we get to play in the rubble of what would become yet another period of unprecedented innovation. Beauty resides in evolution. The set collects nearly 4 hours of unreleased music including 2 CDs of studio material from 1982 to 1985 plus another CD containing a complete, blistering show of one of Miles' last amazing bands captured live at the Festival International de Jazz de Montreal in July 1983. Side men include a multi-generational who's who of jazz talent from JJ Johnson, John McLaughlin, Al Foster and John Scofield to Mike Stern, Marcus Miller, Daryl Jones and Vince Wilburn.

Fairport Convention/Fairport Convention ....import CD $21.99
Reissue. Digitally remastered and expanded edition. Originally released one year after forming the band, 'Fairport Convention' is their debut album and widely recognized as a piece of history of Fairport Convention's origin sound. Before Sandy Denny joined, their style focused on a psychedelic infected Westcoast rock combined with some jazz inspired passages. Creating acid-jazz-rock classics with breathtaking guitar work ("It's Alright Ma, It's Only Witchcraft") from Richard Thompson and stunning pure vocals ("Portfolio") from Judy Dyble. They set a wonderfully fetching melancholic mood that many feel they didn't get enough credit for and gives an interesting contrast to their post transformation sound.

Two CD set. 2022 collection, the first Marianne Faithfull compilation since 2001's An Introduction to... and the first to contain rare and unreleased material since the Island Anthology A Perfect Stranger in 1998. Containing four previously unreleased recordings including one completely unheard song. This compilation offers a definitive overview of the first 30 years of Marianne's recording career on the Decca and Island labels, and features versions of all of her notable singles including the original issue of her final Decca 7" 'Something Better' / 'Sister Morphine' featuring alternate takes unavailable since 1969. It acts both as a primer to the uninitiated and a rarities collection for those already converted. The title Songs of Innocence and Experience acknowledges the change in vocal style between Marianne's orchestral folk-pop of her '60s career with her high pure voice and her new wave punk influenced comeback at the end of the '70s with Broken English featuring her trademark fractured vocals.

Erik Wollo & Ian Boddy/Revolve ....import CD $19.99
Revolve is the fourth collaborative project between Ian Boddy and the Norwegian guitarist Erik Wollo. Revolve is a continuous sonic journey with the tracks joined together by slices of sonic ambience and field recordings. The combination of Boddy's Moog and modular sequencing with Wollo's ostinato guitar patterns creates sections that ebb and flow structurally with a beguiling sense of space and freedom. Beautifully ethereal textures give way to pulsing rhythmic sequencers underpinned by solid bass lines and shimmering percussion lines. Revolve is a stunning musical travelogue that cries out to be listened to as a whole album and shows the mastery both these composers have in their craft.

Events in our life shape who we are. Kintsugi teaches us that when we think we are broken, we can pick up the pieces and with help, put them back together sometimes becoming stronger as a result. We can learn to embrace the flaws and with time and healing, be spiritually repaired. John Holden's Kintsugi features contributions from an array of Prog luminaries.

Pascal Comelade/Le Non Sens Du Rythme ....CD $16.99
Following Le Cut-Up Populaire, Pascal Comelade announces the release of his new album Le Non-Sens Du Rythme. Since his first record published in 1975, Pascal Comelade, a child of the frenzy rock of the '60s and '70s, has developed a profuse body of work including many musical collaborations (PJ Harvey, Robert Wyatt, Jaki Liebezeit [Can], Lee Ranaldo, The Liminanas, etc.). His compositions are a language that dances on a musical skeleton in perpetual movement by successive fusions, mixing folklore and underground, repetitive music and French chanson, pataphysical riffs and toy instruments. As a multiple artist, he has developed an aesthetic approach via a particular link to visual arts. He draws, paints and occasionally performs with painters Miquel Barcelo and Herve Di Rosa. On his new album, Le Non-Sens Du Rythme (to be translated "the nonsense of rhythm," the title says it all), Pascal Comelade plays almost all the instruments, not only multiple pianos but also the Rickenbaker bass, the Indian Harmonium, various keyboards, and even the tin can. He remains the undisputed master of the instrumental ritornello inspired by popular music as well as krautrock.
Dominik Hauser/Music from the Motion Picture "The Bounty" ....CD $14.99
Soundtrax is proud to announce the release of a new recording of the score for the 1984 film, The Bounty, composed by electronic music pioneer Vangelis (Chariots of Fire, Blade Runner). Vangelis' music is faithfully recreated by multimedia composer, orchestrator and arranger Dominik Hauser. For such an epic picture, the choice of hiring Vangelis may seem a bit odd. Respected film music writer Randall Larson, who contributed the liner notes, describes: Vangelis Oscar-winning 1981 score for Chariots of Fire had set a precedent in electronic film scoring (even though its primary instrument was, in fact, an acoustic piano). By eschewing music of the film's 1924 time period and introducing a recognizably synthetic sound design, Vangelis proved capable of underscoring not milieu or period, but subtext, raw emotion, and psychological landscape, laying down an aesthetic musical tableau that expressed much of the story's purpose and that of its characters. The same approach gave The Bounty a continual pulse of inevitable foreboding in the clash of personalities in conflict while also musically reflecting the dappled rhythm of winds and waves and shipboard sounds that were so much a part of the film's sound design. Vangelis recorded the score playing freely to the visual image. He wrote nothing down on paper, but created the music on his keyboards. "With every movie I take a very spontaneous approach," Vangelis told interviewer Dan Goldwasser in a 2001 interview posted on Soundtrack.net. "By this I mean that as I'm watching the footage, I am composing, playing what comes naturally and spontaneously in that moment." In addition to the score for The Bounty, the recording features traditional Irish, Scottish and British folk shanties, along with bonus tracks - short suites from three other unreleased Vangelis scores: Bitter Moon, Francesco, and La Peste (The Plague), arranged by Hauser.

Bill Nelson's Red Noise/Art | Empire | Industry: The Complete Red Noise ....import 4 CD + 2 DVD Box Set $89.99
Following the release of the album 'Drastic Plastic' and a subsequent tour, Bill Nelson disbanded Be Bop Deluxe. Aware of the emergence of the so-called New Wave artists and out of a desire to continually evolve and progress as a musician, he announced the formation of a new band, Red Noise. In hindsight Nelson's new venture can be seen as taking up the musical baton from where he left off with 'Drastic Plastic.' Working with co-producer John Leckie, Bill recorded a new wave masterpiece, a record that would influence a new generation of musicians with it's intelligent and punchy material. Upon it's release, Bill Nelson's Red Noise took to the road with a line-up of Andy Clark (keyboards), Ian Nelson (saxophone), Rick 'Pinky' Ford (bass) and Steve Peer (drums). 'Sound on Sound' and the subsequent live shows would divide opinion of both fans and critics, but with the passage of time, the album is now regarded as one of Bill Nelson's finest works and the band is viewed as a great musical unit. This 2 CD set features a newly remastered original stereo mix (from the original master tapes), along with stunning a new stereo and mix by Stephen W Tayler. The set also includes two tracks from a 1979 EP and a further Red Noise studio session from May 1979. The boxed set features the complete Red Noise recordings; the original album newly remastered from the original master tapes, along with stunning new stereo and 5. 1 surround sound mixes. The set also includes an outstanding complete live concert recorded in Leicester in 1979, newly mixed from the original 24-track tapes, a session recorded for BBC Radio One and a further Red Noise studio session from May 1979 plus a bonus CD of Bill Nelson's home demos. The set also includes video material, including the video for 'Revolt into Style' and the band's session for the BBC TV show The Old Grey Whistle Test from February 1979.

Tangerine Dream/Machu Picchu ....import CD $18.99
'Machu Picchu' is one of the more intimate projects by Tangerine Dream - not planned for a release during the composing and recording process. It is a homage to a man who - like no other person in the business - had 'created' TD's career from a distance many years ago, believing in their talent and extraordinary skills. His name was John Peel. The background story and atmospheric influence of this one-piece-42-minutes-composition came to life after this music driven character and long-time BBC progressive pioneer passed away in October 2004 in the city of Cusco (Peru) close to the sacred Inca site Machu Picchu. This album is more than just another record, it is a non-verbal applause, a greeting, a respectful obeisance for a man who truly was remarkable and unique in the best sense of those words. Edgar Froese didn't want to release these compositions in the first place - "I've made them for myself" he said. But as years passed by his wife argued with him about his decision. Edgar gave in and here it is, one of TD's most personal releases within their enormous musical output. Originally not made available until 2012, 'Machu Picchu' is reprinted and available on digipack CD now.

Bill Bruford's Earthworks/The Sound of Surprise ....import CD $21.99
The last fully studio album that Bill Bruford's Earthworks ever recorded - all subsequent albums were live. Originally released in 2001, the CD title 'The Sound Of Surprise' is credited as New Yorker writer Whitney Balliett's definition of jazz. Out of print for some time; this re-issue is on Bruford's own Summerfold Records and was overseen by him personally. The crisp timekeeping and muscular fills of drummer Bill Bruford's rock work are very much in evidence in this acoustic fusion setting. A penchant for tricky time signatures continues to inform Bill's writing; and it's not impossible to imagine such quirky uptempo tunes as 'Revel without a Pause' and 'Cloud Cuckoo Land' fitting neatly on one of his records from the late 70s. Stand-out tunes include the title track featuring a rare but blistering Bruford solo and the beautiful siren-song 'Come To Dust.'

Ryo Kawasaki/Juice ....CD $14.99
Classic jazz-funk fusion from the late, great Japanese guitarist Ryo Kawasaki. Recorded in New York, and originally released in 1976, 'Juice' presents Ryo at the height of his powers. Born in Japan in 1947, Ryo had a long and stellar career recording and releasing music up until his passing on 13 April 2020, in Tallinn, Estonia. Ryo is one of the pioneers of the jazz fusion genre. His track 'Trinkets & Things' became a bonafide underground classic. In the US he worked with some of the greats of jazz, such as Elvin Jones, Chico Hamilton and Bobbi Humphrey, to name but a few. A forward-thinking and ever-evolving musician, Ryo collaborated with the Roland Corporation and Korg on the 'guitar synthesizer' and later wrote music software for computers. Later in life he relocated to Estonia and worked there, as well as Finland, Sweden, and the Baltic states. 'Juice' has become a much-loved album for crate diggers and jazz-funk enthusiasts. The album was released in 1976 on RCA Records and features the musicians' drummer Jimmy Young, rhythm guitarist Hugh McCracken, and bassist Stu Woods amongst other luminaries. A solid album throughout that incorporates a heavy dose of tripped-out synths courtesy of Tom Coster. Tracks such as the opener 'Raisins', with it's drum beat intro and bubbling bass-line, rivals The Headhunters at their finest. A superb album from an underground legend.

Coming over 50 years since his remarkable contributions to the all-time masterpiece Trout Mask Replica, The Fantasy of Reality is the debut solo release from Jeff Cotton of Captain Beefheart and his Magic Band fame. Beefheart / Zappa designer Cal Schenkel provides the artwork: A perfect fit for the playful and psychedelic nature of Cotton's music. After playing guitar, lap steel and vocals with the legendary Captain Beefheart and his Magic Band, appearing on the ground breaking album Trout Mask Replica (under the pseudonym Antennae Jimmy Semens), as well as playing on Strictly Personal & Mirror Man, Cotton withdrew from the commercial music business for nearly 50 years. Using the island state of Hawaii as a home base, he emerges from his seclusion in 2022 with his first ever solo album; The Fantasy of Reality. Whimsical, playful and tongue-in-cheek - Cotton delivers a psychedelic journey that will delight Beefheart devotees while bringing plenty of new ideas to the table across the sprawling 22 track, 66 minute runtime. Across the decades, the Magic Band's power and influence has only grown in might, and the cult following of 1969's Trout Mask Replica still excites fans to this day, in part due to the mystery and enigma of members such as Antennae Jimmy Semens (aka Jeff Cotton). In 1967, Cotton was scoped by Don Van Vliet - Captain Beefheart himself, replacing Ry Cooder on guitar. He then went one to help craft some of Captain Beefheart and the Magic Band's most vibrant recordings and later contributed to the cult band MU. Now blending together musical strands such as jazz, delta blues, Hawaiian and the avant-garde to create a melting pot of ideas, Cotton will astonish fans with his comeback.
Gary Moore/After the War ....import CD $20.99
'After the War' is the seventh solo studio album by the Northern Irish guitarist Gary Moore originally released in 1989 by Virgin Records. This is the remastered 2002 version. It contains elements of Celtic music. The instrumental "Dunluce" is named after Dunluce Castle in Northern Ireland. On "Led Clones" Ozzy Osbourne, with whom Moore had worked before the singer united with Randy Rhoads, shares lead vocals. The song pokes fun at bands such as Kingdom Come which were popular at the time, and is based on a Led Zeppelin-type sound and image. "That song was great fun," Ozzy recalled, "and it was an honour to record with Gary." The Sisters of Mercy frontman, Andrew Eldritch, provides backing vocals on the songs "After the War," "Speak for Yourself" and "Blood of Emeralds." Moore again pays tribute to the memory of his long-time friend and colleague Phil Lynott with the song "Blood of Emeralds."

There is no doubt that Johnny Winter is one of the great blues and rock guitarists of all time. He has been making records for over three decades and playing live with the best, for example James Marshall Hendrix and James Douglas Morrison. 'Hey, Where's Your Brother?' from 1992 is great. Pure blues in a state of grace. On the classic 1972 live album Roadwork, Edgar Winter immortalized the words, when introducing brother Johnny: "Everybody asks me... where's your brother?" It's a question that fans have besieged both Winters with for over two decades, and Johnny returned the tribute with this album. Edgar does in fact guest on the sessions, blowing sax and tinkling keys on a few tracks, and duetting with big bro on a superb, seasonal rendition of "Please Come Home for Christmas."

Bridget St. John/From There | To Here: UK & US Recordings 1974-1982 ....import 3 CD Set $39.99
Three CD set charting Bridget St. John's post-Dandelion career, 1974-1982. features 17 previously unreleased tracks! Including alternate versions and previously unheard compositions. Following three classic albums on John Peel's Dandelion imprint in the early 1970s, Bridget St. John found herself seeking new outlets and a new path as that label ceased operations in 1972. The album 'Jumblequeen' followed on Chrysalis, and after a number of other possible new options came and went, Bridget found herself drawn towards New York City, and in 1976 relocated there and began to move within the city's underground folk music and singer-songwriter circuit. What followed was a wealth of new material that fed her trademark sound into the melting pot of New York's musical landscape, pulling in different influences and sounds, different musicians and different approaches to songs which were explored on a number of recording sessions. The recent rediscovery of Bridget's tape archive has unearthed numerous recordings captured during that very fertile period in her career, and the artist herself has hand-picked 17 previously unheard highlights, presented here alongside her own contextual sleevenotes. Also including 'Jumblequeen' and 1995's 'Take The 5ifth' (which comprises material from that same New York era), 'From There / To Here' at last provides a definite overview of the decade that followed Bridget St. John's association with John Peel and Dandelion, and is a perfect companion to our previous box set covering those years.
Roger Clark Miller/Eight Dream Interpretations for Solo Electric Guitar Ensemble ....CD $17.99
Roger C. Miller : Custom Stratocaster 6-string; three Rogue lap-steels [on legs], two prepared, one tuned unison E; multiple foot-pedals/sound-altering devices; Boomerang III Looper - all music performed in real time. Roger Clark Miller is best known for being the guitarist in Mission of Burma, where he expanded the vocabulary of rock guitar playing by incorporating elements of free jazz and 20th Century classical music. His "Solo Electric Guitar Ensemble" expands the vocabulary in a new direction, with or without rock music. He began conceptualizing his "Dream Interpretations for Solo Electric Guitar Ensemble" in 2018. He currently uses a regular electric guitar and three lap-steel guitars on stands, two of them loaded with alligator clips or bolts, the other to a post-Glenn Branca full unison E. These instruments and their electronic effects result in percussive grooves and bass-lines. Combining looping technology with new guitar stomp-boxes, many in stereo, the sound palette is enveloping. In performance, Miller sits in his cockpit, able to reach all four guitars and a plethora of pedals from one position. It requires intense concentration to play these compositions, but they could not have occurred any other way.
Thank You Scientist/Perils of Time Travel ....CD $17.99
Thank You Scientist/Maps of Non-Existant Places ....CD $17.99
Thank You Scientist/Stranger Heads Prevail ....CD $17.99
Remixed and remastered. For the uninitiated, Thank You Scientist was forged from the music program at Montclair State University in New Jersey when guitarist Tom Monda met saxophonist Ellis Jasenovic and trumpeter Andrew Digrius. The three bonded over their love for Frank Zappa, Mahavishnu Orchestra, The Beatles and Harry Nilsson. Those influences would become the seeds for what Thank You Scientist would evolve into today. With the addition of vocalist Salvatore Marrano, bassist Greg Colacino, drummer Odin Alvarez and violinist Ben Karas, Thank You Scientist's lineup of virtuoso musicians was complete. The band would go on to self-release an EP, The Perils of Time Travel, in 2011 followed by their debut full-length, Maps of Non-Existent Places in 2012 which caught the ear of Claudia Sanchez (Coheed and Cambria), a fellow purveyor of progressive stylings, and led to his signing of the band on his new label Evil Ink Records. Stranger Heads Prevail came in 2016. To pinpoint Thank You Scientist's sound would be inconceivable. This band defies a specific label, other than progressive. This music is dense, rich, and creamy. Uncork these fine progressive albums and you get hints of jazz, funk, metal, big band, and even a note of Klezmer. This is the Seven-Layer Dip of prog; seven amazing musicians who have created something greater than the sum of their individual talents. On Maps of Non-Existent Places they hold a virtual master class on musicianship, fusing elements of progressive rock with jazz fusion, classical, metal, psychedelic and pop for a head spinning, mind-blowing listening experience. The seven-piece band, who collectively play some 20 instruments, boasts a hyper-composed sound which is indebted to their experience and formal training in both classical and jazz idioms. A Frank Zappa for the indie generation? Incubus jamming with the Mahavishnu Orchestra? Mr. Bungle and Steely Dan joining forces to fight Godzilla? King Crimson and the Brecker Brothers serenading you at your bedside? It all seems so strange on paper, yet it's sure to satisfy your ears in the best of ways.
Philip Glass, Lucinda Childs & Sol LeWitt/Dance ....DVD $29.99
Orange Mountain Music is proud to announce the release of the iconic 1979 work Dance by choreographer Lucinda Childs, composer Philip Glass, and film by Sol LeWitt. "See the music, hear the dance." Never was the great George Balanchine's exhortation more fully realized than in Dance. Dance, American dancer and choreographer Lucinda Childs's first major show, is set to an especially commissioned score by Philip Glass and framed by a video by the visual artist Sol LeWitt. Three exponents of minimalism in their respective fields come together to create something that was once justly described as "close to stage heaven." A work of uncompromising purity, it's choreography meticulously follows every subtle nuance and shifting pattern of Philip Glass's score, so that you can see the music in the bodies of the 12 white clad dancers, the audiences two senses, sight and hearing, completely fused. LeWitt shot a film of the dance, and then cut, layered and floated it onto a scrim over the live performance. The dancers in Sol LeWitt's film, featuring Lucinda Childs herself, appear to flit through the live dancers. The result is one of the most popular ballets of the 20th century. Filmed in Paris in 2014 by the director Marie-Helene Rebois, produced by Daphnie Productions with the participation of France Televisions, the performance was produced by Pomegranate Arts.

Voyager/A Voyage through Time [Live] ....Blu-Ray $22.99
Australian electro-proggers Voyager celebrate 20 years with a fan picked set list covering their vibrant and varied back catalogue. Aussie electro-proggers Voyager delivered a light-hearted and warming live stream with A Voyage through Time. Their second live stream event, celebrating 20 years and seven albums of their genre-blending, hook laden music with a fan chosen set list. The set, which chronologically worked its way through their diverse and transformative discography, was a fascinating way to see where their musical evolution has taken them over the years. Performing in an empty venue with a full production, including a tangled structure of LED lights which moved around above their heads, not only was it a musically pinpoint and glossy, it was pulled off with a smile and a sense of humour, too. They may have started out as a much heavier band - with opener To The Morning Light attesting to that with gruff guitars and hammering blast beats - than the melodically driven and pop adorned sound they now excellently emanate, but they've always been a band not to take themselves too seriously and that spirit is prevalent throughout.

The Aristocrats with Primuz Chamber Orchestra/The Aristocrats with Primuz Chamber Orchestra ....CD$15.99
Fusion supergroup The Aristocrats collides with the classical Primuz Chamber Orchestra! Who will survive? "This project began when we randomly stumbled upon a YouTube video of Primuz Chamber Orchestra performing one of our songs as reimagined by composer/arranger Wojtek Lemanski. Their flawless execution of a highly challenging arrangement (which was startlingly inventive and yet remained entirely faithful to the spirit of the original composition!) inspired us to reach out and propose a collaboration. The process ultimately led to this album, which comprises nine trio performances taken from our previous studio albums, remixed by Forrester Savell and transformed by the orchestra's rendition of Wojtek's string arrangements. This approach enabled Wojtek to create orchestrations that treated many of the spontaneous, improvised elements from our original "band in a room" takes as if they had been part of the actual compositions... yielding some unique results! We're truly proud of the way this project turned out... and we're profoundly grateful that serendipity somehow brought us all together for this collaboration. Enjoy!" - The Aristocrats - Bryan Beller (bass), Marco Minnemann (drums) & Govan Guthrie (guitar).
Babe Ruth/Darker than Blue: The Harvest Years 1972-1975 ....import 3 CD Set $38.99
New thre CD clamshell boxed set of the albums and singles by the band babe ruth recorded for the harvest label between 1972 and 1975. Featuring the albums 'First Base,' 'Amar Caballero' and 'Babe Ruth.' Newly remastered from the original Harvest master tapes with an illustrated booklet featuring an essay. Babe Ruth was formed in Hatfield in 1970 by guitarist Alan Shacklock and featured vocalist Janita "Jenny" Haan, bassist Dave Hewitt and drummer Jeff Allen. Their unique brand of soulful progressive rock soon gained many admirers and in 1972 they signed a contract with EMI Records' progressive imprint, Harvest. By this time Jeff Allen had departed and Dick Powell joined on drums. The band's line-up was also expanded by the arrival of keyboard player Dave Punshon. Babe Ruth stood out from many of their labelmates, partly due to Haan's vocals and through the band's ability to generate a soulful edge to their music. Their debut album, 'First Base' was issued in 1972 and featured the classic tracks 'Wells Fargo' and 'The Mexican' which gained considerable air play in Canada and the USA, but the record inexplicably failed to match this success in the UK. The arrival of Chris Holmes on keyboards and new drummer Ed Spevock in 1974 saw them follow their debut with 'Amar Caballero,' before the band's final album for Harvest in 1975, the eponymous 'Babe Ruth' which was a hit in the USA and Canada and featured the band's memorable cover of the theme from the film A Fistful Of Dollars and the Curtis Mayfield composition 'We People Darker Than Blue.' Soon after the album's release Alan Shacklock departed the band (to be replaced by Bernie Marsden) and Babe Ruth moved labels to Capitol Records.

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

It premiered in January 2019 with vocalist Angelique Kidjo, organist James McVinnie and John Adams conducting the Los Angeles Philharmonic. Philip Glass began his path as a composer of symphonies in 1992 at age of 55 with "Low Symphony" based on music by Bowie and Eno. It was followed in 1995 by Symphony No.4 "Heroes" also based solely on the music of Bowie and Eno. Over two decades later, after Bowie's death in 2016, Glass returned to the idea of concluding the trilogy by approaching the album Lodger as a symphonic subject.

Pinder Brothers/Melancholy Sea ....CD $15.99
The Pinder Brothers' new 'Melancholy Sea' makes waves with sing-a-long melodies and crafty alt-rock rrrangements. Sons of Moody Blues founding member Mike Pinder carry on the tradition, as their own SoCal followers continue to burgeon. The Pinder Brothers may not be the first pair of siblings to proffer an intrinsic fusion of vocal harmonies, but add to the mix crafty sing-a-long melodies and enough of a rock edge to engage the masses. That is the musical mantra of these brothers in arms' third full-length release "Melancholy Sea." Of course, the many current fans of Matthew and Michael Lee are already aware of one other essential factor. Let's call it pedigree. Their dad Mike Pinder was a founding member of the legendary Moody Blues, who not only fulfilled the enduring band's mellotron duties, but also contributed harmony vocals. The Pinder Brothers mesh the harmonies of Crosby, Stills and Nash alongside the songwriting style of Simon & Garfunkel, and ultimately add their own modern spin. Listeners will hear all of this and more in "Melancholy Sea," which the pair wrote, played and arranged. The project's masterfully penned lyrics create a sonic tapestry that dazzles the ear....much like the colors of a seashell inspire the eye. The brothers' voices harmonize beautifully, accompanied by arrangements that deftly ease from a bed of crunchy electric guitars into warm overdriven tones that layer as naturally as sheets and a blanket. It could be said that The Pinder Brothers have '60s Brit-rock heritage in their DNA, with a healthy dose of California style thrown in. Hailing from Northern California, Matt and Michael Pinder grew up playing music and performing together whenever possible. How could they not, with the sounds of the lost chord echoing softly in their ears. Thankfully, Mike Pinder's innate talent has been passed on to his sons - who are now creating their own legacy.

Ryuichi Sakamoto & Alva Noto/Insen [Remastered] ....import CD $21.99
A musical game of chess played by electronic musicians Alva Noto and Ryuichi Sakamoto. Sakamoto begins using the old Karkowski frontal attack, but Noto (aka Carsten Nicolai) counters, employing the little used but highly effective Yellow Magic defense. Ivories are tickled, knobs are twiddled and long phrases of white-room-with-black-curtain electronica are pushed across a lovely parquet floor with a feather duster made of the finest peacock plumage.
The Samurai of Prog/The Lady and the Lion and Other Grimm Tales I ....import CD $22.99

The Samurai have become known in progressive rock circles for their symphonic prog creations, which feature lush and varied keyboard sounds, powerful picked bass guitar, dynamic drums, virtuosic violin and flute, and always mixed and mastered for audiophiles. This is a great addition fo TSoP's ever growing catalog of lovingly crafted new symphonic prog, rooted in the classics, but looking forward.
Klaus Schulze/Deus Arrakis ....CD $18.99
Composer, musician and producer Klaus Schulze rolls out his extensive sounds, plays his legendary sequences and creates this unique 'Schulze atmosphere' for more than 50 years now. With "Deus Arrakis" the electronic legend now presents his new studio album. Through his collaboration with Hans Zimmer for the Oscar-winning soundtrack to the remake of the classic film 'Dune,' desert fever has broken out again in Klaus Schulze. "I needed more of that 'Spice,'" Schulze recounts. "From there I felt completely unleashed and just played and played... at the end of that second private 'Dune' journey I realized: 'Deus Arrakis' became another salute to Frank Herbert and to that great gift of life in general." Since his beginnings in bands like 'Tangerine Dream' and 'Ash Ra Tempel' or in his over 50 solo albums from 'Irrlicht' to Mirage,' 'X' and 'Dune' to 'Farscape,' 'Kontinuum,' Silhouettes' and now 'Deus Arrakis,' in his productions under the pseudonym 'Richard Wahnfried' or the numerous film scores and collaborations with artists like Arthur Brown, Michael Shrieve, Rainer Bloss, Lisa Gerrard or most recently Hans Zimmer: Klaus Schulze has always remained true to his unmistakable way of creating music and yet always remained open to the new, the innovative, the experimental.

Tangerine Dream/Shy People [Original Motion Picture Soundtrack] ....CD $17.99
Dragon's Domain Records is excited to bring Shy People back into the marketplace, newly remastered by Digital Outland with previously unreleased bonus tracks. The booklet includes exclusive liner notes written by author Randall Larson, with the participation of composer Paul Haslinger and music editior Virginia Ellsworth. To score Shy People, director Andrei Konchalovski, who was a classically trained musician himself, was looking for someone to create an extra dimension through the music that would enhance the visual qualities of his film. Konchalovsky flew to West Berlin and met with band members Edgar Froese, Christopher Franke and Paul Haslinger in their studio to discuss in detail his preferences for the music, staying for several weeks as the process developed. When scoring films in their Berlin studio in those days Tangerine Dream would deliver their finished music mix to the production company and from then on wouldn't be involved with the final mix. In Shy People's case, it was left to Konchalovsky and supervising music editor Virginia Ellsworth and her team (assistant music editors Robin Katz and John Ganem) to edit the tracks and place them against scenes that Konchalovsky felt they'd be most effective. The band would be responsible for shaping the music into a listenable presentation. The score for Near Dark was produced around the same time as Shy People and both scores show a remarkable growth in the evolution of the band's sound.

Snowy White/Driving on the 44 ....CD $17.99
Snowy White is one of a handful of classic blues-orientated British electric guitar players - musicians whose sound, technique and style has echoed the originality of the blues with the excitement of contemporary rock. He has developed his own style of 'English' blues, a combination of clear, clean blues phrases and harder-edged riffs that are a recognizable feature of his very personal songs. In the Autumn of 1976 he was invited to tour America and Europe with Pink Floyd as their first augmenting musician, a gig which took up most of his time throughout 1977. In 1979, Peter Green decided to head for the studio once more and invited Snowy and his band along to jam. The result was the album entitled 'In the Skies,' now something of a collector's item. He was then asked by Pink Floyd to go to America to rehearse their new show entitled 'The Wall,' and at the same time Thin Lizzy invited him to become a full-time member. Snowy stayed with the band for nearly three years of touring, recording 'Chinatown' and 'Renegade' with them in 1982, before leaving to pursue his solo career. Snowy's first solo album was entitled 'White Flames.' This album included the timeless 'Bird of Paradise,' written by Snowy which became a hit single around the world. Every year from1999 to 2014 Snowy toured the world with Roger Waters, including the 'The Dark Side of the Moon' and massive 'The Wall' tour. In between tours, he founded the Snowy White Blues Project. Driving on the 44 is Snowy's brand new album, featuring 10 tracks of the best in modern blues-rock. Featuring Thomas White - drums, percussion; Max Middleton - piano, Rhodes, strings; Ferry Lagendijk - Hammond, Rhodes.
Tony Williams/Play or Die ....CD $18.99
Tony Williams certainly counts among those unique drummers in jazz today, whose work has had a lasting influence on styles and still does. At the tender age of 16, saxophonist Jackie McLean brought him to his band in New York. He also made his first recording with McLean. Soon after, aged 17, Williams was already making a splash in the second Miles Davis Quintet. Almost twenty years later, in 1980, on May 30 and 31, Tony Williams went to the Zuckerfabrik recording studio in Stuttgart, Germany, together with Tom Grant (keyboards, synthesizer, he joined this band on the recommendation of Jeff Lorber) and Patrick O'Hearn (bass, synthesizer, from Missing Persons and Frank Zappa). In the 1970s and early 1980s, this studio was an illustrious address for audio productions of all kinds. Larry Coryell, Wolfgang Dauner, Stephane Grappeli, Elvin Jones, Martin Kolbe + Ralf Illenberger, Volker Kriegel, Alphonse Mouzon, John Scofield and the United Jazz + Rock Ensemble recorded there, to name just a few. Tony Williams and Peter Schnyder co-produced the recording. The album was recorded in just two days and mixed right there in the studio. This timeless album, released in an edition of only 500 copies, was hardly promoted at the time and may therefore have remained unknown to one or the other. All the better that now for the first time since the release of the vinyl it is also available on CD, with a significantly improved sound.

Neil Young + Promise of the Real/Noise & Flowers
Neil Young + Promise of the Real/Noise & Flowers [Deluxe Edition] ....CD + DVD + Blu-Ray + 2 LP Box Set $85.99
Neil Young + Promise of the Real/Noise & Flowers [SHM] ....Japanese import CD $38.99
Neil Young + Promise of the Real announce a new live album, Noise & Flowers, that captures the group in all their glory on their 2019 European tour. The release will be accompanied by a similarly titled concert film that's included in the album's 2xLP+CD Deluxe Edition. Noise & Flowers documents a 9-date tour that began just two weeks after Young's lifetime friend and manager of more than 50 years, Elliot Roberts, passed away at age 76. Performing alongside a photograph of Roberts taped to his road case, Young approached each show as a celebratory memorial service to honor his late friend. It's a trek the legendary singer/songwriter describes as "wondrous." "Playing in his memory [made it] one of the most special tours ever," Young says in the album's liner notes. "We hit the road and took his great spirit with us into every song. This music belongs to no one. It's in the air. Every note was played for music's great friend, Elliot." In paying tribute to the manager who guided Young's career for over a half-century, Noise & Flowers explores all corners of his vast discography. It balances all-timer anthems ("Mr. Soul," "Helpless," "Rockin' in the Free World") with rarely aired '70s deep cuts ("Field of Opportunity," "On the Beach") and '90s gems ("From Hank to Hendrix," "Throw Your Hatred Down"). His frequent backing band since 2015, Promise of the Real effectively bridges the extremes in Young's sound, infusing his raging rockers and country serenades with their casual brilliance and telepathic intuition.
