Digitally remastered and expanded six CD box set of the legendary 1971 FILLMORE EAST RECORDINGS from four shows on March 12th and 13th, 1971 produced by Tom Dowd. After years on the road the band reached their pinnacle here. Bill Graham's theatre with a state of the art PA and Joshua light show always brought out the best in artists that performed on the stage. Graham called the ABB his favorite band and chose them as the closing act at the Fillmore East when he shut it down on June 27, 1971. That legendary performance is also included in this set. Contains 37 tracks including 15 that are previously unreleased. For years fans have clamored for the release of this material. The unique guitar interplay between the late Duane Allman and Dicky Betts is legendary and unique. Includes deluxe 34 page booklet with extensive liner notes by Hittin' the Note fan site editor John Lynskey.

CD

The album was recorded at Cederberg Studios and Oslo with favored producer Christer-Andre Cederberg. Alongside additional mixing by Grammy Nominated Steve Wilson, Anathema also brought in the legendary services of Dave Stewart (Porcupine Tree) to create the new album's extraordinary orchestral arrangements.

CROSBY STILLS NASH & YOUNG - CSNY 1974 3CD + DVD $45.98
Long-rumored and highly anticipated CSNY 1974 captures the band's one-of-a-kind harmonic alchemy during its remarkable outdoor stadium tour, a trek that spanned more than two months and included 31 concerts, in 24 cities, with combined audiences of over a million people. Produced by Graham Nash and Joel Bernstein, this 40th anniversary CD features 16 live tracks, electric and acoustic, selected from the band's boxed set.

DREAM ACADEMY - Morning Lasted All Day: A Retrospective $19.98
Two CD collection from the British trio. With a lush Psych-Pop sound and lyrics inspired by the likes of Nick Drake and composer Steve Reich, Dream Academy stood out from the '80s British Rock pack. The band's Nick Laird-Clowes compiled, annotated and remastered this definitive Dream Academy package: the hits 'Life in a Northern Town' and 'Love Parade' plus key album cuts and rarities. The unreleased 'Living in a War', 'The Chosen Few', and 'The Last Day of the War' join the unissued instrumental of 'Power to Believe' and more. 24 tracks with guests David Gilmour, Johnny Marr, Lindsey Buckingham, Polystyrene and J.D. Souther plus a new song, 'Sunrising'.

ELOY - Reincarnation On Stage (Live) $23.98

EMERSON LAKE & PALMER - Brain Salad Surgery DIG,WDVD,DLX $19.98
Digitally remastered and expanded three disc (two CDs + DVD-A) edition of the ground-breaking fourth album from the Progressive Rock trio. ''Welcome back my friends to the show that never ends'' With instantly recognizable cover art by H.R. Giger, BRAIN SALAD SURGERY was arguably the band's most successful and well-realized album, reaching #11 on the Billboard Top 200. Now Celebrating its 40th Anniversary, this classic album has been fully restored. The first disc contains a remastered version of the original album, Disc Two the Alternate Album Mix, and Disc Three, a DVD-A of Super Stereo Mixes with the remastered original and new 2014 stereo mix, both in MLB Lossless 24/96 & LPCMm 24/96. Flac files are also included.

ENO & HYDE - High Life $14.98
Within weeks of the release of their acclaimed debut album Someday World, Warp is excited to reveal that the collaboration between Brian Eno and Karl Hyde continues with a second full-length album, HIGH LIFE. Written and recorded across a series of recording sessions in April of 2014 (some of which were open to selected media from around the world), none of the music on HIGH LIFE existed before SOMEDAY WORLD was completed! The resulting record, at 6 tracks and 45 minutes, is the clearest expression yet of the 'Reichkuti' (Steve Reich meets Fela Kuti) direction that first brought the Eno Hyde collaboration into being.

Faithfull,Marianne - Dangerous Acquaintances $21.98
Digitally remastered edition housed in a mini LP sleeve that reproduces all the components of the original LPs and is an exact replica in compact disc size with authentic cardboard jacket and paper inner sleeve. Marianne Faithfull's 1981 sophomore album, DANGEROUS ACQUAINTANCES, represented a shift to a more mainstream rock sound with notable songs including ''For Beauty's Sake,'' co-written with Steve Winwood, and ''Intrigue'' written by her husband.

FRAMPTON, PETER - Hummingbird In A Box $10.98
Following a massive year of touring, including 2013's inaugural Frampton's Guitar Circus, Frampton is back on the road this summer. This time he will set out on a three-part catch-all tour including select solo dates, a co-headlining run with Grammy-winning American rock legends The Doobie Brothers and the return of Frampton's Guitar Circus.

Two CD set. GARCIALIVE 4 features over two hours of previously unreleased music mastered from original soundboard recordings. The fourth installment of the recently launched archival series presents the Jerry Garcia Band's performance from March 22nd, 1978 at Veteran's Hall in Sebastopol, California. This incarnation of the Jerry Garcia Band features Garcia and longtime collaborator John Kahn plus drummer Buzz Buchanan and Grateful Dead bandmates Keith and Donna Jean Godchaux. Grammy award winning vocalist Maria Muldaur ('Midnight at the Oasis') rounds out the line-up.

GLASS / DAVIES - Sym1 Low $19.98

GRATEFUL DEAD - Dick's Picks 17: Boston Garden 9/25/91 $47.98
Three CD live archive collection from the Rock legends. This Pick was, at the time it was released, chronologically the latest live show in the Grateful Dead discography, and it's still the second latest concert to be officially released in their vast library. And it chronicles a very special period in Dead history, when Bruce Hornsby sat in with the band to form, along with former Tube Vince Welnick, a formidable, two-pronged keyboard attack. This particular volume - culled from a complete 9/25/91show at the Boston Garden (a consistently good stadium venue for the band) and a bonus half hour from a 3/31/91 show in Greensboro, NC - is also notable for including the first-ever performance of Paul McCartney's 'That Would Be Something' and the first-ever appearance of Dylan's 'The Mighty Quinn' on a Dead album. Add to that the stunning, 23-minute version of 'Eyes of the World' that caps off the third disc and Dick's Picks Vol. 17 is a exemplary document of late-period Dead. Out of print for years!

The Guess Who - Power In The Music CD $13.98
When the members of the Guess Who entered the studio to record this album none of them expected it to be the group's last album. Burton Cummings decided to leave the group three months after the completion of the sessions and he was off for solo pastures. The album was remastered by Vic Anesini from the original session tapes. The informative essay by Co-Producer Ralph Chapman contains the very different takes on the album and session by long-time Guess Who members Burton Cummings and Garry Peterson.

Hunter,Ian - Strings Attached $25.98
Reissue of this two CD live set recorded in 2002. While Mott the Hoople were one of the greatest British rock bands of the 1970s, they were also a band unafraid to wear their hearts on their sleeves. Nearly 30 years after Mott the Hoople called it a day, frontman Ian Hunter was still rocking out. Recorded with a primarily acoustic band and a large string section helping out. In typical neo-Unplugged fashion, Strings Attached doesn't rock much, but it has a bit more backbone than you might expect -- the stripped-down versions of “All the Way From Memphis” and “Once Bitten, Twice Shy” are good rollicking fun -- and it finds Hunter in strong voice, calling up the sort of passion that marks his best music.

HYNDE, CHRISSIE - Stockholm DIG $11.98
2014 release, the first-ever solo album from Chrissie Hynde, the founder and singer for The Pretenders. STOCKHOLM is a suitably impressive addition to a Rock & Roll Hall of Famer's staggering legacy, a fresh debut. 'It's the first album with my name on it,' Chrissie says. 'But it's not a solo album. In fact, making this album was more of collaboration than any Pretenders album ever was.' Includes the single 'Dark Sunglasses'.

JARRETT, KEITH / HADEN, CHARLIE - Last Dance $17.98
Keith Jarrett and Charlie Haden broaden the scope of their duo project to showcase Jazz classics like Thelonious Monk's 'Round Midnight' and BudPowell's spritely 'Dance Of The Infidels'. Love songs, however, are to the fore in this selection, with tender versions of 'My Old Flame', 'My Ship', 'It Might As Well Be Spring', 'Everything Happens To Me', and 'Every Time We Say Goodbye' as well as alternate takes of 'Where Can I Go Without You and 'Goodbye', every bit as touching as the Jasmine renditions. ''When we play together it's like two people singing'' said Jarrett of his reunion with Haden. The intentions of the song are honored, the shades of meaning in a melody or a lyric explored instrumentally. As Charlie Haden put it, ''Keith really listens, and I listen. That's the secret. It's about listening.'' The music on LAST DANCE was recorded at Keith Jarrett's home studio.

OCONNOR,MARK - Moc4 $12.98

Phenomenauts - Escape Velocity $15.98
2014 album from the San Francisco-based Indie rockers. ESCAPE VELOCITY is the speed needed to break free from the gravitational attraction of a massive body, such as the Earth. The Phenomenauts felt it was a fitting title for an album that encourages people to break free of their own limitations, taking off on a boundless journey fueled by their unstoppable rhythms, inventive melodies and nimble lyrics. Songs were inspired by the arcane rhythms of intergalactic space and a wide variety of Earth music. 'Theme For Oakland' is an anthem in honor of Earth's Capital, Oakland, California, driven by a big, glittering British backbeat and a simple exuberant chorus of ''Hey Hey Heys.'' Angel Nova and special guest, Kepi Ghoulie trade vocals on 'When Greed Nearly Destroyed The World,' a sci-fi narrative that presents a vision of utopia, and what it cost to get there, in little more than three minutes. Chugging guitars, staccato power chords, electronic drum flourishes, new wavey synthesizers and a soaring chorus present a hopeful scenario that looks compassionately back on our tortured past.

PINNICK GALES PRIDGEN - Pgp2 $16.98
Dug Pinnick, Eric Gales and Thomas Pridgen enjoyed the experience of collaborating so much that they headed back into the studio to record a second album of psychedelic blues, hard rock and progressive soul / R&B together.

In addition, fans of artists as far ranging as Jimi Hendrix, Cream, Living Colour, Stevie Ray Vaughan, Tool and Liquid Tension Experiment might find something meaningful in these meaty, extended tracks.

Siday,Eric - Ultra Sonic Perception $23.98
2014 release, a compilation of electro-acoustic and early electronic music. Considered to be one of the pioneers of Psychoacoustics, Eric Siday is also acknowledged as a key name in the growth of 20th century electronic music. An important figure in the development of the Moog Synthesizer, Siday's compositions were a testing ground for Bob Moog ideas, in turn shaping the technical advancement of the instrument. An early experimenter of Musique Concrete and extended technique, he inaugurated these concepts into the world of television scoring and advertising. Pulling together a clutch of eerie atomic-age miniatures drawn from a series of rare 10'' 78rpm library discs, this compilation explores Siday's scientific study of sound, a concept he branded 'The Ultra Sonic Perception'. Partially used as the soundtrack to the early 1960s Doctor Who TV series, this document is an amazing insight into the early electronic music used in television as well as a showcase of the pioneering techniques used by this forward thinking composer.

STREAM OF PASSION - War Of Our Own $14.98

THOMPSON, RICHARD - Acoustic Classics $12.98
ACOUSTIC CLASSICS, a collection of newly recorded timeless Richard Thompson songs, features 14 tracks culled from his 40 plus year music career. 2014 release from the British Folk singer/songwriter, a collection of newly recorded timeless Richard Thompson songs.

The recipient of a BBC Lifetime Achievement Award, Mojo's Les Paul Award and curator of the prestigious Meltdown Festival at the Southbank in 2010, Thompson was most recently honored with a Lifetime Achievement Award for Songwriting by the Americana Music Association.

THREE DOG NIGHT - Three Dog Night $13.98
Digitally remastered edition of the 1968 debut album from the '60s and '70s hitmakers. The group relied on outside songwriters, which gave them their pick of the cream of materiel coming out of this very fertile artistic period. In fact their debut album and stage act was peppered with material written by Lennon-McCartney, Steve Winwood, Neil Young, Randy Newman and Robbie Robertson just to name a few! The album slowly crept up the charts as the singles released did progressively better until the Harry Nilsson-penned 'One' reached #5 on the singles chart catapulting the group and their debut album into the stratosphere. Their constant touring as well as the success of 'One' led to a gold album and the stage was set for their second album to ship gold, but more on that later.

And You Will Know Us by the Trail of the Dead - Live Rockpalast ‘09 3CD $34.95
In February 2009, the groundbreaking American Rock group And You Will Know Us By The Trail Of Dead released their sixth LP, The Century of Self. By this point, the project which had originally formed as a duo in the mid-'90s had transformed into a six-piece ensemble devoted to largescale, uncompromising sounds - music that had as much in common with Progressive and Art Rock as with Indie or Punk. This concert was filmed for Rockpalast on 14 May 2009 at the Live Music Hall in Cologne, Germany. For more than 80 minutes, the six members leave it all onstage like a boxer trying to knock out his opponent with multiple body blows before he collapses from exhaustion himself. Not a single minute of it can be classified as easy listening. It's no secret that And You Will Know Us By The Trail Of Dead resides at the other end of the artistic spectrum. In fact, one has to look long and hard to find anything comparable to their monumental walls of sound in contemporary rock music. Live at Rockpalast shows that reaching such heights is only possible with blood, sweat and tears.

AYERS, KEVIN & THE WHOLE WORLD - Howling At The Moon $22.95
Live release from the British Psych/Rock singer/songwriter. HOWLING AT THE MOON was recorded live in Hyde Park back in 1970. Ayers' bandmate, the late and very much missed David Bedford remembered it: ''There was a really nice gig in Hyde Park when Pink Floyd premiered ATOM HEART MOTHER with orchestra and choir. The chap conducting that had just commissioned me to write a piece for his choir, so it was sort of my two worlds mixing up. It was a really hot day and really nice, it was a good piece. After that came the first band album SHOOTING AT THE MOON and it was a typical mixture of things that happened at gigs; straight forward pleasant whimsical songs and crazy avant-garde plinky plonk stuff of the sort that I was doing in my concert music pieces.''

In 1971 they produced their magnum opus, the self titled EDGAR BROUGHTON BAND, also known as 'the meat album' for its obvious artwork connotations, which is one of the highlights of the renowned creative studio Hipgnosis.

Digitally remastered edition of this 1976 album. Over the years, Grant Green has become one of the most revered guitarists in Jazz and is cited by many as one of the most talented and original guitarists of all time in any genre. The Main Attraction is a remarkable recording bringing together as it does all of his influences from Blues, Gospel and Bebop and wrapping them up with Dave Matthew's compulsive arrangements. When originally released The Main Attraction gave almost equal billing to flautist, Hubert Laws, who as can be heard, takes as much of a soloing role as Green on the almost 17min long title track.

IL BALLETTO DI BRONZO - SIRO 2222 CD $18.95
Raw-edged heavy rock, fronted by Lino Ajello's powerful electric guitars, channeling the dark, jagged energy of Jimmy Page, Adrian Gurvitz, and Jeff Beck. IL Balletto Di Bronzo absorbed their influences (Led Zeppelin, Jimi Hendrix, The Yardbirds), but moved from there into an inspired, hard-edged musical space; the band's overwhelming power and great melodies make them irresistible. ‘Un posto' and ‘Neve Calda' are centered around simple but effective guitar riffs. ‘Eh eh ah ah' starts like a nice mellow ballad, but gets into a hard blues rock groove. On side two, there's the seven-minute mammoth heavy grind of ‘Incantesimo' and the colossal ‘Missione Sirio 2222,' almost ten minutes of droning acid rock with whirling guitars and heavy pounding drums, sandwiched between an acoustic intro and outro. No wonder Nurse With Wound cited IL Balletto Di Bronzo as an influence.

ILLSLEY, JOHN - Testing The Water $27.95
2014 album from the multiple Brit and Grammy winner and former Dire Straits bassist. Recorded and produced with Guy Fletcher at A-Bay Studios and British Grove, TESTING THE WATER sees the 'engine room of Dire Straits' in fine form. From the opening riff of the first single, 'When God Made Time', John's classic sound is unmistakable. As the man who was a significant element in the pace and feel of Dire Straits' music from the outset, this familiarity is not surprising ''''that's not me being influenced by the band, that's just the way I've always played and it continues in my own work'''' he reflects. Written over the last three years these songs are deeply personal narratives, ''the last few years have been so turbulent politically, militarily and personally and I wanted to try and create some songs that reflected these strange times and perhaps were worthy of sharing with others.''

They have built a loyal and cult following since their first album 16 years ago and in that time such luminaries as Steve Hackett, the late Richard Wright, and the late Jon Lord and the BBC's own Bob Harris are amongst their many fans. Bryan Josh is that rare beast - a hugely talented guitarist who knows how to play with feeling and for the song. His soaring guitar, always drenched in pure emotion, at times recall the golden era of guitar heroes such as David Gilmour but never outstays its welcome, always leaving the listener wanting a little more. Lead vocalist Olivia Sparnenn is a true talent, the range and beauty of her voice is world class.

Live archive release from the Mael brothers. Taped during their tour for SPARKS IN OUTER SPACE, this set includes tracks from that album as well as songs from WHOMP THAT SUCKER and ANGST IN MY PANTS. Sparks' brand of quirky Pop is personified in the decidedly odd disparity between the band's two founders and front men: the corkscrew-haired falsetto-voiced pretty-boy singer, Russell Mael, and his keyboard-playing brother, Ron - he of the deadpan demeanor, piercing glare and austere moustache. In the late '70s, Sparks had found their Electronic format too difficult to tour and decided to once again revert to their more traditional Pop-Rock sound. It is this era that is so well documented by the excellent live broadcast recordings on this disc, which features the cream of their early 1980's recordings whilst the band were touring the USA.

SYLVIAN, DAVID & ROBERT FRIPP - Damage $19.95
CD reissue of this classic live recording, a collaboration between vocalist David Sylvian (Japan) and guitarist Robert Fripp (King Crimson). .With a well received studio album in the form of THE FIRST DAY issued in summer 1993, Sylvian/Fripp took to the road for a lengthy tour to support the release. Trey Gunn reprised his role from the earlier tour and studio recordings as stick player, while Pat Mastelotto joined the group on drums, a position which led to his being offered a role in the 1990s King Crimson, a band in which he has remained a member of every line-up since. Producer and recordings artist Michael Brook completed the touring ensemble. DAMAGE was recorded at the final London concerts in December 1993 and issued in 1994. Whereas the studio album had a measured grace and power, the live album was even more muscular on the Rock pieces, drawing some extraordinary performances from all contributors. This made the contrast with the quieter, more ambient material even more pronounced, with audiences able to hear every nuance of the material. (NOTE: This reissue contains the 2001 remix of the album and not the original 1994 mix).

SYLVIAN, DAVID & ROBERT FRIPP - First Day $19.95
CD reissue of this 1993 collaboration between vocalist David Sylvian (Japan) and guitarist Robert Fripp (King Crimson). Fripp guested on David Sylvian's 1986 album GONE TO EARTH.

The album was recorded by David Bottrill in Woodstock NY and New Orleans. Experimental yet accessible, song driven yet leaving ample room for instrumental exploration, THE FIRST DAY is a great advert for such occasional meetings insofar as it manages to showcase the individual strengths of both artists while drawing something new and unexpected from their joint work. As such it is one of the best remembered of the many collaborative recordings by both artists.

The reason for the creation of Thinkman was that Rupert could not get a deal with a record company at the time due to the corporate music industry so the 'band' was created using actors for photo shoots. Rupert got his deal and due to popular demand the Thinkman albums are now being reissued.

THIRD EAR BAND - Abelard & Heloise $21.95
Digitally remastered edition of this 1970 album by the experimental British band.

This album was recorded in July 1970 in Munich for German television, and is the complete soundtrack of the movie of Abelard & Heloise's story. The tragic story, a classic in medieval culture was written by Alexander Pope. The soundtrack has been unavailable for many years and will be a welcome addition to the catalogue of one of the UK's unusual, underrated, and inventive bands.

Various Artists - Blues From The Checker Vaults 2CD $13.95
2014 two CD set. The Checker label was founded by brothers Leonard and Philip Chess in 1952, along with the famous Chess label that would prove a driving force in the rise of the Blues in the ‘50s. One of the reasons for opening another label was to maximize the chance of radio airplay, so Checkers, a board game similar to chess, was the logical choice of name. With the likes of Elmore James, Jimmy Witherspoon and Bo Diddley there's a treasure trove of music to be found on these discs. Checkers is a board game... you'll be anything but.

Many of the featured composers also worked for other libraries - John Fiddy for KPM and Bruton, Walt Rockman for Studio One, Sammy Burdson for Conroy and Colorsound and Claude Larson for MFP. Compiled by audio archivist and Electro producer Alan Gubby, who also produced the BBC Radiophonic Workshop compilation THE JOHN BAKER TAPES on Trunk. RARE PSYCH, MOOGS & BRASS is the first album release on Buried Treasure and a must for collectors of dusty grooves, moog-tastic Funk and Psychedelic Jazz.

Various Artists - Blues From The Vocalion Vaults 2CD $13.95
2014 two CD set. Our selection here from the legendary Vocalion label spans the period from 1926 to 1940, the year before the United States went to war. Though this includes the period of the Great Depression, significant numbers of Blues records were sold and Vocalion showcased a piano-based style the music business dubbed ‘Urban Blues', distinguishing it from the Mississippi Delta Country Blues. With gems from the likes of Leroy Carr, Robert Johnson and Memphis Minnie, there's no doubt the classic Vocalion repertoire on this compilation was, and still is, the cream of the Blues crop.

Tim Bowness/Abandoned Dancehall Dreams ....double CD $17.99

Tim Bowness/Abandoned Dancehall Dreams ....double CD $17.99

21 years after No-Man's debut and 10 years after Bowness's previous solo release My Hotel Year, Tim Bowness returns on the Inside Out label with his ambitious second solo album, Abandoned Dancehall Dreams.  Produced by Bowness and mixed by his No-Man band partner Steven Wilson, the album features performances from Pat Mastelotto (King Crimson), Colin Edwin (Porcupine Tree), Anna Phoebe (Trans-Siberian Orchestra) and members of the No-Man live band (Stephen Bennett, Michael Bearpark, Pete Morgan, Steven Wilson, Andrew Booker and Steve Bingham).  Classical composer Andrew Keeling, best known for his work with The Hilliard Ensemble, Evelyn Glennie and his orchestrations of Robert Fripp's Soundscapes, provides string arrangements for four of the album's eight tracks.   Distinctively combining art rock and singer-songwriter influences, Abandoned Dancehall Dreams alternates between the low-key and the large-scale, possessing the cinematic scope and sophisticated sheen of No-Man's best work, while taking Bowness's music into unexpected areas, including the propulsive drum and string chug of The Warm-Up Man Forever, the fretless bass, synth and choir combinations on Dancing For You, the Nick Drake-esque Waterfoot, and the grinding rock codas to Smiler at 50 and I Fought Against the South.  The CD edition of Abandoned Dancehall Dreams comes with a companion disc featuring strikingly beautiful mixes from collaborators old, Richard Barbieri and UXB, and new, highly rated Brighton band Grasscut, as well as outtakes and alternate versions of album material (including an extended 2 part No-Man live band take on Songs of Distant Summers).  Completed at Phil Manzanera's Gallery Studios and Steven Wilson's Nomansland in early 2014, the album was mastered by award-winning Pink Floyd engineer, Andy Jackson.  Abandoned Dancehall Dreams is a singular statement from a singular artist.

Magma/Zuhn Wohl Unsai Live 1974 ....import double CD $21.99

From the Made In Germany label comes this previously unreleased Magma concert from February 6, 1974, Sendesaal, Bremen, Germany. This amazing document has been lying in the archives at Radio Bremen for 40 years.  This is the entire radio broadcast, featuring the touring version of the Kohntarhosz band:  Jannick Top - bass; Christian Vander - drums & vocals; Gerard Bikialo & Michel Graillier - pianos and organ; Claude Olmos - guitar; Klaus Blasquiz - vocals.  The tracks are a particularly amazing Sowiloi (Soi Soi) & Theusz Hamtaahk, as well as Mekanik Destruktiw Kommandoh and a drum solo.   This is one of the great Magma shows by one of the greatest of their '70s line-ups. None of this has been heard or released before, with the exception of a 6' excerpt on the Utopic Sporadic Orchestra CD. It was mastered directly off of the master tapes in the archives of Radio Bremen, and those German engineers have always really known how to record a live band.  This is the real thing, kids; an unbelievably great recording by one of the strongest-ever lineups of one of the greatest, weirdest, truly original avant-garde rock bands that ever was and ever will be, because they don't put whatever it was that made them in the drinking water anymore. Hugely recommended!

This in turn led to Emerson being commissioned to compose and perform the music for the film "Nighthawks" in 1981. From here a succession of film scores were to follow for directors in Italy, Japan and the United States. "At the Movies" gathers together Keith's music for seven movies; "Nighthawks," "Best Revenge," "Inferno," "La Chiesa (The Church)," "Murderock," "Harmagedon" and "Godzilla Final Wars."  The set also includes an illustrated booklet with new essay and photographs.

He formed the group Tone in 1974 with drummer Ernest Carter (a fellow ex- Springsteen musician) and bass player Gerald Carboy. With Springsteen's assistance Sancious secured a contract with Epic Records that year and recorded the album "Forest of Feelings" soon after. The album was produced by legendary drummer Billy Cobham and drew on progressive rock and jazz rock influences and was a stunning debut record.  "Forest of Feelings" enjoyed a fleeting appearance on CD and has long been unavailable.

Esoteric Recordings are pleased to announce the expanded release of Man's classic 1992 studio album "The Twang Dynasty." Although Man had reformed in 1983 to perform live, "The Twang Dynasty" was Man's first studio record release in sixteen years. The album was a very strong "comeback" that stands alongside the band's work in the 1970s. Featuring a line-up of Micky Jones (guitar, vocals), Deke Leonard (guitar, vocals), Martin Ace (bass, vocals) and John Weathers (drums), "The Twang Dynasty" featured excellent material such as 'A Feather on the Scales of Justice,' 'The Chinese Cut' and 'The Wings of Mercury' (dedicated to the late John Cipollina of Quicksilver Messenger Service who had performed with Man).  The deluxe set is newly re-mastered and features two additional CDs of Man's complete set at Glastonbury Festival on 25th June 1994, featuring many tracks from "The Twang Dynasty" along with splendid performances of classic tracks such as 'C'Mon,' 'Many Are Called, But Few Get Up,' 'Bananas' and 'Romain.'

Help Yourself/Reaffirmation: An Anthology 1971-1973 ....import double CD $29.99

Esoteric Recordings are pleased to announce the release of "Reaffirmation," a comprehensive anthology by the unsung heroes of British early '70s rock, Help Yourself. Help Yourself was formed in London in 1970, originally as a backing band for singer-songwriter Malcom Morley and took their influences from American West Coast Country and Acid Rock. After Morley signed to the Famepushers management stable, his manager John Eichler suggested Morley form a new band and Help Yourself was born. Featuring Malcolm Morley (guitars, keyboards, vocals), former Sam Apple Pie member Dave Charles (drums, percussion, vocals), Richard Treece (guitars, vocals, harmonica) and Ken Whaley (bass), the band signed to United Artists in 1970 and their eponymous debut album was issued in 1971.  Following a tour with label mates Brinsley Schwarz and Ernie Graham (also Famepushers artists), Ken Whaley departed the band. An expanded line-up including Ernie Graham and Jonathan Glemser began work on the album "Strange Affair" in 1972, but Graham and Glemser's departure half-way through the recording saw roadie Paul Burton join the band to complete the album, (which would include the excellent extended track 'The All Electric Fur Trapper'). The band embarked on a tour of Switzerland with Welsh rock legends Man and a bond formed between the two groups. The band's "Beware the Shadow" was an even stronger effort, featuring the Help's twelve-minute anthem, 'Reaffirmation,' a track that displayed the instrumental excellence of the group. Prior to a tour to promote their most recent album Malcolm Morley fell ill with depression and Deke Leonard, recently dismissed from Man, took his place. When Morley recovered, Leonard remained with the band, appearing with them on the "Christmas at the Patti" concert in December 1972. In early 1973 Deke Leonard departed the band to pursue a solo career and the band began work on the album "Happy Days," a record that also featured The Flying Aces and Vivian "Spiv' Morris. Paul Burton's departure during these sessions saw Ken Whaley return to the band. Work then commenced on another album, "the Return of Ken Whaley." Both albums were released as a package by United Artists later that year. Although critically acclaimed, commercial success continued to elude the band and in August 1973 Help Yourself disbanded, with Malcolm Morley and Ken Whaley joining Man in 1974 for their album "Winos, Rhinos and Lunatics."   Forty years on, Help Yourself is now regarded as one of the great, unsung British bands of their era. This anthology gathers together the essential tracks from all of their albums released by United Artists, newly re-mastered from the original master tapes. It features a booklet with essay by Michael Heatley and is a tribute to their genius.

The Artwoods/Steady Gettin' It: The Complete Recordings 1964-1967 ....import triple CD $42.99

From Esoteric's distributor, Cherry Red, back in the mid-sixties, The Artwoods were one of the most vital, impressive R&B bands on the circuit, fronted by Art Wood (elder brother of future Faces/Rolling Stones guitarist Ronnie) and also boasting future Deep Purple organist Jon Lord, renowned drummer Keef Hartley, guitarist Derek Griffiths and bassist Malcolm Pool.  Between 1964 and 1967, the band recorded seven singles, the ultra-rare EP Jazz in Jeans and a nearly as scarce LP, Art Gallery, mostly for Decca but also for Parlophone and Fontana (the last under the pseudonym St. Valentine's Day Massacre). Their records have long been coveted by fans of 60s beat, R&B and Mod music.  Keep Lookin' is the most comprehensive anthology of The Artwoods' recordings to date. Alongside all of the band's A's and B's, this three CD set boasts four previously unissued early acetate recordings by the Art Wood Combo, several BBC radio sessions with unique tracks and a long-lost live recording in Denmark from that tail-end of their career.  The compilation benefits from the involvement of the band's guitarist Derek Griffiths and basisst Malcolm Pool, plus legendary blues producer Mike Vernon.  The sound quality of The Artwoods' recordings has never sounded better, due to some exemplary remastering and resourcing of some of their rarer tracks.  This vital addition to the collection of any discerning sixties fan boasts a superbly designed and annotated bumper booklet.

Deep Purple/Purpendicular [Expanded Edition] ....import CD $21.99

Deep Purple/Purpendicular [Expanded Edition] ....import CD $21.99

From Esoteric's distributor, Cherry Red, after a more than tumultuous quarter of a century making records, "Purpendicular," no less than the 15th studio record by Deep Purple, is the start of a period of relative stability in the Purple camp.   Following the departure of founder member Ritchie Blackmore during the 1993 tour to support "The Battle Rages On," the band would eventually find a more permanent and less temperamental axe-slinger in the shape of former Dixie Dregs guitarist Steve Morse.  Originally released in 1996, and with all songs credited to all five band members - Jon Lord on keyboards, Ian Paice on drums, singer Ian Gillan and Roger Glover on bass guitar - guitarist Morse certainly makes his mark on this guitar orientated, and often quite experimental record. Tracks such as 'Sometimes I Feel Like Screaming' and 'Vavoom: Ted the Mechanic' would soon become mainstays of Deep Purple's live set.   Also included on this edition is the Japan bonus track 'Don't Hold Your Breath' plus the single edit of 'Sometimes I Feel Like Screaming.'

All music written by Adriana Rubio, Alexander Ditzend (guitars & lead singing), Stefan Ditzend (bass guitar & saxophone), Nicolás Saganías (drums & percussion), and Fabrizio Gamba (keyboards & synthesizers).   A unique masterpiece of 12 tracks that truly reflect the early artistic concept of Pink Floyd founder Syd Barrett and his music legacy in modern times.

Gary Burton/Conception: Anthology of Early Landmark Recordings ....import double CD $28.99

Gary Burton/Conception: Anthology of Early Landmark Recordings ....import double CD $28.99

From Esoteric's distributor, Cherry Red, Gary Burton, the astonishing virtuoso of the vibraphone. A child prodigy who achieved renown among musicians who marveled at his dazzling technique and originality of conception. Throughout a long career that traversed Nashville, George Shearing, Stan Getz, psychedelia, improvisation, free jazz, jazz rock and fusion, he retained a creative disposition; looking always to broaden his musical horizon and to push the boundaries of musical convention. Burton's innovations include the revival and adaptation of the use of a four mallet technique which enabled him to significantly increase the scope of his sound.  That the iconic countrypolitan guitarist and producer Chet Atkins was responsible for signing Burton to his first recording contract, is testament to the universality of his musical appeal.  This two cd set, comprises, Gary's 1961 debut LP as leader, New Vibe Man In Town (with Gene Cherico and Dave Brubeck's drummer Joe Morello), the second album, Who is Gary Burton? (with Chris Swansen, Phil Woods, Bob Brookmeyer, Clark Terry., Morello, John Neves and Tommy Flanagan) that followed a year later, and historic sessions of the same era in which the vibist participated: The Nashville All-Stars' After The Riot at Newport, the impromptu live date recorded on the back porch of a rented mansion after the group of eight Nashville musicians, including the guitarists Chet Atkins and Hank Garland, the pianist Floyd Cramer and the 17 year-old Burton, had arrived at the Rhode Island festival at which they were due to appear to find the event in disarray because of an unruly crowd. Another auspicious occasion, and the fourth album of this edition, is Hank Garland's superlative Jazz Winds from a New Direction, the jazz debut of this most predominant of all Nashville session guitarists. Garland's group consists of Burton, bassist Joe Benjamin and Joe Morello. Burton and Garland are in perfect, at times, awe-inspiring synchronicity on what has come to be regarded as one of the definitive jazz guitar statements.  Completing the package is Floyd Cramer's million-selling single, Last Date, on which Gary provides a simple accompaniment. The record reached number two on the Billboard chart. The single that kept it from the top spot was Elvis Presley's Are You Lonesome Tonight.

Groovicity/Groovicity ....import CD $26.99

'New directions in jazz from ex-If saxophonist Dave Quincy and his new group.'  As key exponents of the 1970s UK jazz-rock scene, If conquered Europe and America with their dynamic and sophisticated 'live' performances. They also released a series of diverse albums, packed with well-crafted songs and instrumentals.  Dave Quincy, co-founder of If, now returns with his new group, Groovicity.  The members of Groovicity are from the Poole and Bournemouth areas of the UK, emerging from a thriving local gig scene. Dave Quincy teamed up with talented pianist Guy Gardner, with whom he had previously performed locally and in London. After a particularly well-received show last year at the Eagle Jazz Club in Rochester, Kent, they contacted jazz pianist Prof. Ray D'Inverno and booked time at his Dorset studio to lay down some tracks. Local Bassist Joe Limburn and drummer Lee Miller were added to line up, and so, in a few hours one afternoon, Groovicity was born.   Groovicity are currently lining up gigs in the UK and Europe and are also re-arranging some classic IF songs, and planning on further expanding the group to a six piece outfit for gigs and more recordings.

Magna Carta/Live at the Royal Albert Hall (1971) ....import CD $26.99

Magna Carta live in concert with the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra!  Lost for four decades, Magna Carta's legendary performance of their thematic masterpiece 'Seasons' with the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra at London's Royal Albert Hall in 1971 finally sees the light of day!  Main man Chris Simpson wrote 'Seasons' - a hugely moving and ambitious piece aligning the seasons of man with the seasons of the year. The original studio recording of 'Seasons' was a huge hit, but when jazz legend John Dankworth asked if he could score an arrangement of the piece, it took on a whole new life, which reached its pinnacle as Magna Carta (Chris Simpson, Glen Stuart and Davey Johnstone) enthralled a full house at the Royal Albert Hall.  The album features the first seven tracks played by the band - including one of their best-loved songs 'Sea & Sand' and a show-stopping virtuoso performance of the famous folk tune 'The Mason's Apron' by Davey Johnstone - before being joined by the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra for their final, epic and highly emotional delivery of the complete 'Seasons' suite.  Chris Simpson tracked down the long-lost tapes of the show, then mixed them for release, with Jon Astley mastering the finished recording. The extensive liner note by music journalist and author Colin Irwin includes an interview with Chris Simpson that details the full story behind the creation of 'Seasons,' the concert and the celebrations with Princess Margaret at Kensington Palace that followed the show.

Mostly Autumn/Dressed in Voices ....import CD $26.98

Singers of seasons, players of Floyd-tinged folk-prog, Mostly Autumn have been at one with nature and sweet pagin-ish tunes for nearly 20 years. Now they've written a concept album about the impact of murder. It's a blackened change of tack, but it could be one of the best musical decisions mainman Bryan Josh has made. The plantive story-telling-through-song aspect - propelled by Olivia Sparenenn's prettily articulated vocals - may arouse suspicion from those less keen on new-age girly singing.  And yet sharpened, majestic overtones and quietly ominous moments make this album a genuinely commanding prospect. Symphonic qualities develop in Not Yours, and as the melancholy narrative grows, some exquisite tones emerge - with moving, original vocal strains and guitar lines singing out of the title track. A pretty imaginative dive into the dark side. - Classic Rock Magazine

Little Tragedies/At Nights ....import CD $25.99

Little Tragedies/At Nights ....import CD $25.99

A Russian band including a variable number of musicians, Little Tragedies was born from the will of composer and musician Gennady Ilyin to experiment new musical forms of expression. More particularly, his art could be described as a hybrid mixture of seventies-like progressive rock, fusion, jazz-rock and contemporary classical musics. The whole thing played through vintage keyboards reminding of the Seventies, but especially with an obvious Slavonic personality. Apart from ELP and the classical composers, one could think of Pink Floyd, Genesis or Focus with the characteristic sound of the Russian bands. The music is a brilliant mix of rock, classical music and jazz, with heavy-metal traces in some guitar riffs. Keyboards parts are very keen on seventies sounds. If the vocals are in Russian, the music is mostly instrumental, played with brio and carefully produced. Gennady Ilyin is certainly one of the best keyboardist in progressive rock today.  In order to celebrate its twenty years of existence under its name (it was Paradox from 1988 to 1994), Little Tragedies offers today its twelfth studio album!   "At Nights" still pays hommage to the Russian tongue and culture, polishing its mixture with occidental progressive rock even further. And here comes another true achievement for Little Tragedies!

Sandrose is a very original French group, that became a legend for its unique 1972 eponymous album. This real masterpiece is considered as one of the ten international progressive rock classics.  Let's notice some beautiful dialogues between the heavy guitar played by Jean-Pierre Alarcen (Le Systeme Crapoutchik, Renaud.) and the elegant Mellotron. Some superb melodies are lightened by Rose Podwohny's powerful and crystal clear voice (Later on, she's going to experience success under the name Rose Laurens), by the majestic guitar soli and the splendid keyboards sonorities. This long-awaited reissue includes a biography and some unpublished photographs, that makes this album a must-have for every fan.

Lazuli/Tant que L'Herbe est Grasse ....import CD $29.99

Somewhere between progressive rock, song, world-music and electro, the atypical, dreamy and researched music of Lazuli takes us far from the beaten tracks with a quite unusual band. This French group uses actually in bulk Chapman Stick, Warr Guitar, marimbas, vibraphone, percussions, guitars, voice... An instrumentation not unlike Peter Gabriel's in his early years when his guitar player was named Robert Fripp. And that's not by chance! The Leode is also played here, invented and constructed in only one copy by Claude Leonetti, being the surprising mix of a guitar, a synthesizer, a melodic saw and a Martenot wave. This instrument controls a sampling machine and a multi-effect system through a MIDI module. The instrument must be played with only one hand: the musician unfortunately lost an arm in a motorbike accident when he was young. Lazuli conceives songs like pictures, mixing colours, depicting the world or repainting it. Words question the wounds of today. The ethereal, outlandish voice swarms with puns describing man in every forming and deforming. Lazuli will enchant and bewitch you.

Masal/Viens des Quatre Vents ....import CD $29.99

Masal is the band performing the compositions by French musician Jean-Paul Prat. This music exists since the seventies, and the Zeuhl lovers will certainly remember the album "Masal," a true classic recorded in 1982 under the name of Jean-Paul Prat. The instrumental line-up then included five to fourteen musicians. They performed with the likes of Gong, Magma or Soft Machine. "Galgal" (2009) is the sequel to the Masal discography. It's built around the same elements that made its glorious ancestor a success. As for every type of music, one could find traces of various influences, but they are deeply assumed here, giving a personal architecture, colorful and punchy. Once again, here's a near-perfect performance by the six musicians. The Master of Ceremonies left the drummer's seat to a certain Jean Prat (The son is as good as the father!), in favour of piano and music conduction. Here are six long pieces, highlighted by a 14 minute-suite, paying tribute to Masal's reputation.

Motis/Josquin Messonnier ....import CD $25.99

Singer, songwriter and multi-instrumentist, Emmanuel Tissot is at the origins of Motis, an interesting French band from the Franche-Comte region. Its musical influences are to be found in his own curriculum vitae: progressive rock with Oceane or Musical Box, independent rock with Les Coprins, jazz with Madjarocka and Le Ravings's Club Big Band, French chanson with Les Wagons de Queue.  The music of Motis offers a wide range of instruments, traditional (mandolin, epinette, flute...) or rock (Mellotron, Moog, Hammond organ...). The musicians' music is a mix of medieval and rock music, with progressive rock sounds and influences.  With their 2014 offering, here's the story of a fictitious character named "Josquin Messonnier." From the first feelings in the childhood to the adult days, through the commotions of the adolescence, you're invited on the Life Journey with him. A musical journey filled with vintage analogic instruments: Mellotron M400, Hammond organ, Solina, Rhodes... And still that particular sound of the motissian electric bouzouki, not to mention the powerful drumming of Tony Carvalho. And for the first time on a record, the various basses played by Martial Baudoin, on four or five strings, or even using the unique piano-bass ! Here are also two guest-stars: Delphine Tissot performing choirs on one title, and Andre Balzer (the voice of the legendary French progressive rock band of the seventies, Atoll!) responding to Motis on a track dealing with three and Mother Nature's arms. In the end, for the die-hard proggers out there, here's a 7 minute-instrumental piece in the middle of the album. And the booklet is beautifully illustrated by David Chazelet, the perfect companion for the saga of "Josquin Messonnier."

His first solo album was recorded in 1996 under the name Fred and Co., and released on the Musea Parallele label. Eighteen years later and after many albums and collaborations, our man is back with a new album: "Voyage."  This shows a cool and light music, kind of modern jazz-rock fusion leaving a large space for emotion.

Philippe Luttun/The Taste of Wormwood - Voices from Chernobyl ....import CD $25.99

We have just discovered a new shining star in the bright progressive rock universe, a comet named Philippe Luttun, whose forthoming arrival should make a deep impact! This amazing French multi-instrumentalist offers today a cinematic concept-album inspired by Chernobyl's nuclear disaster that happened April 26th 1986, from its causes to its most terrific consequences. This is not for all audiences! Published in the year 2014 on the Musea Parallele label, "The Taste Of Wormwood - Voices From Chernobyl" displays eight grandiose tracks, entirely performed by Philippe Luttun, only helped by a female singer here and there. One could be reminded of Pink Floyd, Clearlight, Porcupine Tree, Liquid Tension Experiment or Pulsar, these influences being perfectly assimilated and remixed, often completed by slavic (the action takes place in the U.S.S.R.) or electro touches. In the end, there's no other way than admitting that the word "masterpiece" has been tailor-made for this album !

The Healing Road/Birdbrain's Travels ....import CD $25.99

The Healing Road is the instrumental project led by German keyboardist HansPeter Hess (The Bearded's Project), whose name was inspired by the book by Neil Peart (Rush) "Ghost Rider - Travels on the Healing Road." To help him, this musician has invited numerous guests, for example, on guitars, keyboards and drums. His music is a mix of catchy and dreamy sequences, with dynamic rhythms. His skillful and lively keyboard playing and composing style are reminiscent of Genesis and ELP with some more aggressive and wild moments ala Dream Theater, and also a touch of electro. To create something different from the previous albums, HansPeter Hess set some guidelines: less Piano sounds, less synthesizers, Moog or Hammond sounds. The album should have an acoustic, rural, pastoral atmosphere and contain as much acoustic instruments as he can get and play. Guitar player Thommy Frank features here, as well as Roland Enders, the latter performing the closing track, being a folk-song written and sung by him. Faithful to the concept of an album split in two long instrumental suites, "Birdbrain's Travels" is a new achievement!

La Yne/La Grande Illusion ....import CD $25.99

La Yne aka artist Matti Laine is a folk musician of today, a fiddler who has traded his violin to MacBook. On the debut album ancient experssions of works, magic, rites, ceremonies and needs will find their new tonal form. "Music is a journey, not a destination!" Matti Laine's debut album, "La Grande Illusion" is a hypnotic experience of strong originality, blend of different cultures and brings forward completely its own and unique journey through the fascinating world of music. Musical influences picked from different corners of the world from personal explorations brings out the universality of music. Recorded on site and sampled in studio, sounds represent the urban sounds of world music - or music to the world – regardless of race, color, religion, ancestry, age, etc.  The result is a flirt between ethnic and modern. Masai warriors on Times Square and Abos in the Eiffel Tower. Camels on the foot of Big Ben. Religious symbols in perfect harmony with each other. Life is a trip and La Yne think it should be a positive one. The album also bows to the experimental masterpieces of the seventies and eighties such as "My Life In The Bush Of Ghosts" (Brian Eno & David Byrne), "Tin Drum" (Japan) and "Security" (Peter Gabriel), without forgetting their style and sound.

The Lost Generation/The Lost Generation ....import CD $24.99

The Lost Generation/The Lost Generation ....import CD $24.99

The Lost Generation is the new project from Diaries of a Hero's bass player Matteo Bevilacqua. The British musician takes a step away from his heavy-metal background and explores different musical paths, following the footsteps of bands such as Porcupine Tree, Anathema, Pain of Salvation and the softer side of Opeth. Recorded in the Sciolze Hills, Italy, the self-titled first album examines various themes focusing mainly on the conditions the youth are living in, and the overall tension that peeked in the 2011 London Riots. Like all concept-albums, it needs to be observed as a whole to fully capture the journey the listener is invited to follow as the musical genres intersect with one another. Progressive rock leads the way to ethereal acoustic sections, electronic experimentations and even a bluegrass track, but the atmosphere is one, undoubtably traveling on the same train that terminates where it began, leaving the listener with no question that the creativity displayed here is only just the beginning.

Loreweaver/Italic ....import CD $25.99

Italian progressive rock band Loreweaver really started in the year 2008, when Barbara Rubin joined on vocals to write and record "Imperviae Auditiones," out three years later on S.G. Records. Here's a collection of eight progressive heavy-metal influenced tracks that have been described as "an album that contains sounds that I have never heard before!"  The second piece of work, captured by the Musea Parallele label and entitled "Italic," is more focused on the "progressive" and imaginative approach to music. The band believes music is the most powerful way to create images and tell stories, and "Italic" is a bit of every member's own stories put down in music.

Ellips/Sight ....import CD $25.99

Ellips is a French alternative rock band created by Alexis and Charles Roman, the two sons of the famous keyboards player of Pulsar. After a first publication by Musea Parallele for one of them with the project Cosmos Dream, the two brothers begin months of recording and achieve what they had in mind since many years. Recorded in the year 2014 on the Musea Parallele label, "Sight" is a dreamed journey of alternative rock music. The songs reflect a certain taste for punchy rock (Close to M83, Bloc Party or Radiohead) mixed with improbable dreams of ambient music (Influenced by Sigur Ros or Jon Hopkins). The complexity of the recording, with electronic sounds and well-crafted production, create a musical landscape very rich and also very deep.

Il Castello di Atlante/Capitolo 8: Live ....import CD + DVD $39.99

Il Castello di Atlante/Capitolo 8: Live ....import CD + DVD $39.99

Il Castello di Atlante, a quintet (guitar, bass, drums, keyboards, vocals & violin) born in the mid-Seventies, only issued their first album in 1992. The line-up performs an airy symphonic rock, ethereal and pastoral, completely influenced by the romantic, lyrical and dreamy tradition of the Italian progressive rock masters of the time (Premiata Forneria Marconi, Banco del Mutuo Soccorso, Locanda Delle Fate, Le Orme...). The music is characterised by the preeminence of the vocals and the keyboards, and by a violin strongly influenced by classical music. A kind of progressive rock strongly marked by classical music, with delicate and natural atmospheres, sung in Italian. Recorded in 2000, "Come Il Seguitore Delle Stagioni" benefits from the production of Beppe Crovella (Arti + Mestieri).

Pearls of Swines/Pearls of Swines ....import CD $25.99

Pearls of Swines/Pearls of Swines ....import CD $25.99

The music is composed by Frederick Galiay and organized into tables. The texts sung by Sarah Murcia & Frederick Galiay are poems written by Edgar Allan Poe. If the energy and sound of the group clearly come from rock , the composition is harmonically rather in line with the contemporary music of the second part of the twentieth century. Jazz-electro-rock music Pearls of Swines contains the influences of each of its members. It is a bridge between a bunch of these different artistic approaches.  Poems of Poe, in their original versions, exhale odd structures, poisonous as squeaky harmony developed by Frederick Galiay.

The film has gotten rave reviews from art and film critics, during its run in UK art museums.

Ian Anderson/Homo Erraticus [Deluxe Edition] ....import 2 CD + 2 DVD + Artbook $74.99

Ian Anderson/Homo Erraticus [Deluxe Edition] ....import 2 CD + 2 DVD + Artbook $74.99

The 2014 conceptual masterclass from Jethro Tull frontman Ian Anderson reunites Anderson with Thick As a Brick lyricist Gerald Bostock for the first time since 1972.   A wonderfully ambitious fusion of folk, rock and metal stylings.  In 2012 Ian Anderson released Thick As a Brick 2, the follow-up to Jethro Tull’s legendary concept album. The album was a critical and commercial success, charting around the world. In April he returns with Homo Erraticus, his new studio album.  The original Thick As a Brick album, released in 1972, was based around the poem of disgraced child prodigy Gerald Bostock. For Homo Erraticus Anderson is reunited with Bostock, using lyrics written by Gerald based on an old historical manuscript. The manuscript examines key events from throughout British history before going on to offer a number of prophecies for the future.   Suitably dramatized and exaggerated by Bostock as metaphors for modern life, he presented Anderson with ideas for 14 songs, which have now been set to music. The result is Homo Erraticus. The album will be released on Anderson's own Calliandra Records label in conjunction with Kscope.  Following the release of this "Jethro Tull album" in all but name, Ian and his band will be embarking on an extensive UK tour, where they will play the album in its entirety followed by a selection of Tull classics. These shows will be followed by further tours in Europe, America and more later in the year.  This limited edition is a deluxe 4 disc set presented in a 60 page hardback book, including DVD interview disc, bonus CD with audio documentary and 'hotel demos,' and a 5.1 surround mix of the album on DVD.

Steven Wilson/Cover Version ....CD $15.99

Cover Version, the album, collects all the material issued on the limited edition Cover Version singles series released between 2003-2010.  The 12 tracks comprise 6 Steven Wilson originals and 6 covers and provide an essential insight into both Wilson's musical taste and his evolution as a solo artist.  In March 2003 Steven Wilson released Cover Version, a two track CD single which was limited to 1,000 copies. Despite an illustrious career fronting a number of acts, including Porcupine Tree and No-Man, and recording under various guises (IEM, Bass Communion, etc), this was the first piece to be released under his own name. The single was made up of one cover version along with one new self-written composition. this proved to be the first of a series of Cover Version releases as over the next few years he released a further five singles. The artists that he covered reflect the diverse range of music that influences him, taking in tracks by Alanis Morissette, Abba, The Cure, Momus, Price and Donovan. As Steven Wilson's popularity has grown, both through his work with Porcupine Tree and through his burgeoning solo career, these long sold out releases have become much sought after by collectors.  Compiled onto CD for the first time and due to be relesaed by KScope in a sleevepac with artwork 'remixed' from the box design by Carl Glover.

Fripp & Eno/No Pussyfooting ....vinyl LP $34.99

Fripp & Eno/No Pussyfooting ....vinyl LP $34.99

For the first time in nearly 30 years, this classic electronic music album is available once again in vinyl format, from newly cut masters approved by the artists. Manufactured on 200 gram super heavyweight vinyl & housed in a reworked version of the original gatefold sleeve, using variant photos from the original photo shoot by Willie Christie.   In August 1972 King Crimson guitarist Robert Fripp was producing some material for Robert Wyatt. Brian Eno - then a member of Roxy Music, came to the studio to add synth to the same sessions. Fripp & Eno found common cause.  On September 8th 1972, Robert Fripp brought his guitar and pedal board to Brian Eno's home studio. Using Eno's twin tape recorder/loop method setup Fripp provided two takes - one for the background guitar loop and one for the foreground solos with Eno selectively manipulating which signals were committed to the final tape. The 21 minute piece of music that resulted, "The Heavenly Music Corporation" became one of the most significant and influential pieces of electronic music ever recorded. The other track on the album "Swastika Girls" was not recorded until over a year later in August 1973 at Command Studios in London. No Pussyfooting was released in November 1973, and its unique achievement at the time was to place an album of uncompromising and experimental electronic music into the hands, homes and ears of rock music fans around the world. The album is now regarded as a seminal recording.

Fripp & Eno/Evening Star ....vinyl LP $34.99

Fripp & Eno/Evening Star ....vinyl LP $34.99

Fripp & Eno's electronic music classic "Evening Star" is once again available in vinyl format for the first time in nearly 30 years. The album's return to the 12" vinyl format is newly cut from masters approved by the artists. Manufactured on 200 gram super heavyweight vinyl & housed in a reprint of the original sleeve.   With King Crimson on hiatus from 1974 until 1980, Robert Fripp's first post-Crimson stage appearances were with a series of concerts with Brian Eno in Spain, France and England in late May 1975. Circumstances following an accident in January 1975 led to Eno formulating the idea of ambient music as detailed in the notes to "Discreet Music" - released in December 1975. The title track of "Discreet Music" was initially conceived as a backing loop for Fripp to play over at the Fripp and Eno concerts.  A short section from those concerts, reversed, provided the basic track for "Wind on Water" - the opening piece from the second Fripp and Eno album "Evening Star". The title track that follows features a Fripp solo that is regarded by fans as one of his most beautiful performances. The short, pretty loop called "Evensong" and "Wind on Wind" an extract from "Discreet Music" formed the remainder of the album's first half. Perhaps more pastoral than truly ambient, and in part indicative of the type of music that Eno would feature on his later "Music for Films" albums this was a firm step away from the long form pieces that had made up "No Pussyfooting." As if to balance the equation, the second side comprised a single piece "An Index of Metals." Running to almost 29 minutes it is almost the antithesis of the warm inviting music on the album's first half.   As starter points for a vast number of musicians, these albums are unparalleled, their influence only beginning to be fully understood and appreciated. Brian Eno is credited with the claim that everyone who originally bought a Velvet Underground album subsequently formed a band. It's no less valid to suggest that many of those involved in electronic music might not have been but for "No Pussyfooting" and "Evening Star."

Miles Davis/My Funny Valentine-Miles Davis in Concert ....Hybrid SACD $28.99

Miles Davis/My Funny Valentine-Miles Davis in Concert ....Hybrid SACD $28.99

Miles Davis My Funny Valentine on numbered limited edition Hybrid SACD from Mobile Fidelity.  Miles Davis' My Funny Valentine marks several historic turning points. For Davis, the live album represents the final time on record he'd perform standards rather than original compositions. It also stands as one of the last documents made by the same band that created Seven Steps of Heaven.  Boasting gorgeous sound, Mobile Fidelity's collectable SACD reissue is presented in reference-standard fidelity, the record boasts balances, tonalities, and airiness that duplicate the experience of witnessing live jazz in an acoustically ideal hall. The images of each individual instrument, the decay of the notes, the inner reaches of the piano, and symmetry of the horns - all are rendered with palpable detail. This is the very definition of reach-out-and-touch-it realism.   Staged as a benefit to support voter registration in the South, the February concert came amidst the height of the Civil Rights movement, a cause dear to Davis' heart.   Pianist Herbie Hancock, bassist Ron Carter, and drummer Tony Williams are their leader's equal, and would continue with Davis until later in the decade, helping form what's now known as the "second great quintet."  But the secret weapon arrives in the form of tenor saxophonist George Coleman. His lines are subtle and sophisticated, straight ahead but capable of unanticipated direction.  One listen confirms something special transpiring, and on this Mobile Fidelity reissue, those properties are rendered in a manner that's as transparent to the source as humanly possible.

Hall & Oates/Private Eyes ....Hybrid SACD $28.99

Hall & Oates/Private Eyes ....Hybrid SACD $28.99

Hall & Oates Private Eyes on numbered limited edition Hybrid SACD from Mobile Fidelity.  Hall & Oates could've easily followed the protocol established on their breakthrough Voices, done nothing else, and watched 1981's follow-up Private Eyes scale the charts. Yet the duo continues to press forward, further refining the era-defining stylistic melange that propelled them to mass stardom a year prior. The creative and artistic peak of the all-time best-selling male duo's output, Private Eyes delivers relentless pop bliss and functions as an instruction manual that, as Rolling Stone opined, still teaches "the way to make rock girls, disco girls, and new-wave girls scream together."  Mastered from the original master tapes, Mobile Fidelity's reissue presents the Top 5 album's sharp, widescreen production values with awe-inspiring detail and palpable realism. For the first time, listeners can get inside the songs' internal mechanisms by experiencing first-hand the vast surfeit understated sonic effects. Well-appointed tones now grace the array of guitars, pianos, basses, and voices placed against synthesized backdrops. Each member's singing also claims enhanced intimacy and balance. Offering tremendous insight, Mobile Fidelity's SACD doubles as a lesson in the construction and sustain of big, bold grooves.  Reflecting the album's infallible level of quality control, no song disappoints. The three Top 40 singles - the title track, "I Can't Go For That (No Can Do)," and "Your Imagination" - feature clever elements such as hand-clapped choruses and staccato piano lines. The distinctive traits complement the duo's hallmark harmony vocals and add R&B flavors to already-scintillating pop concoctions.  Yet Private Eyes' pleasures advance well beyond the radio singles.

13th Floor Elevators/Live Elevation Lost ....double import CD $15.99

Live Evolution Lost: The 13th Floor Elevators Live at the Houston Music Theatre is the first ever release of the complete performance of the band's legendary show from 18th February 1967 due for release by Charly Records on 8th July 2014.  The trailblazing 13th Floor Elevators released the first "psychedelic" rock album in America, transforming culture throughout the 1960s and beyond. Formed in late 1965 in a small town in Texas by Electric Jug playing Tommy Hall, guitarist & vocalist Roky Erickson, guitarist Stacy Sutherland they were joined by bass player Benny Thurman, and drummer John Ike Walton; at a time where Baptist and Mormon preachers fought for the population's spiritual wellbeing, and Country & Western music filled the bars on a Saturday night. Out of these conflicting extremes, the Elevators were born and began making a name for themselves in the burgeoning music scene in Austin, Texas.  Though Roky Erickson was the frontman, the group's sound and philosophy were created by the unpredictable and impulsive Tommy Hall. The Elevators followed their own spiritual cosmic route searching for a new path to enlightenment whilst all the while creating a reputation for excess. The band developed a sound that merged garage-punk and psychedelic experimentation.   Their music, from the beginning, played and created under the influence of LSD, was raw, ambitious and hugely experimental with Sutherland's pioneering use of reverb and echo, and bluesy, acid-drenched guitar mixed with Tommy Hall's innovative electric jug ... 'psychedelic rock' was conceived.  A two CD edition which for the first time features the whole of the Elevators' historic gig on 18th February 1967 at the Houston Music Theatre. It catches the band with its classic line-up before the release of 'Easter Everywhere' and is the only known complete recording of an Elevators' gig, and the latest to survive.  Mastered by Sonic Boom and put together by band expert Paul Drummond, it includes one reel unissued for over forty-five years.

Midge Ure/Fragile ....CD $15.99

'Fragile' is the first collection of new, original music from Grammy and Brit award winning musician Midge Ure in over a decade.  An album of beautifully crafted, atmospheric music which swings from 'Become' and 'Dark, Dark Night' where he collaborated with fellow musician Moby and shows more than a passing a nod to his electronic roots, all the way to the heady, cinematic soundscape of 'Fragile' or 'Star Crossed' which could almost be termed 'contemporary prog rock.'

Arc/Umbra ....CD $15.99

Arc/Umbra ....CD $15.99

Arc are Ian Boddy and Mark Shreeve, two veterans of the UK electronic music scene. Their music is deeply routed in the traditions of the German synthesizer music of the 1970s and as such they employ a vast range of vintage analogue equipment not the least of which is Shreeve's massive Moog IIIC modular system.  Umbra is a recording from their headline performance at the E-Live festival in Oirschot, the Netherlands on 19th October 2013. The duo played for 90 minutes and the set was recorded to multi-track to allow Shreeve to edit and mix the album to fit onto a single CD. The audience reaction to the music has been included to provide a genuine taste of the concert experience.  The powerful sequencing on the six tracks were recorded in the studio beforehand and these were triggered by Boddy using Ableton Live during the concert.  This allowed the duo to concentrate on interweaving complex layers of keyboards and textures throughout their performance. The set constantly evolves in an organic fashion from the traditional sequencing grooves of the opening track Arcadia through to the powerhouse encore track Cherry Bomb. The second piece, Proximo Obscuro, hearkens back to the classic, simple grooves of early Berlin style sequencing. Umbra and Panthera have a darker, more gothic feel and bookend the more delicate sequencing of Auto Stratus. This is only the fifth concert Arc have performed and as such Umbra provides a wonderful opportunity to hear what these two experienced musicians sound like in a live performance.

Steve Hillage/Live at the Rainbow 1977 ....import CD $17.99

Steve Hillage is one of the most idiosyncratic and instantly recognizable guitarists in the world. Besides his solo recordings he has been a member of Gong, Khan and System 7.   Hillage formed a touring band which toured in late 1976. During the latter half of the 1970s, Hillage made a name for himself as a guitarist and prog-rock/fusion composer and performer.  This album shows Hillage at the top of his game, playing a classic show at the Rainbow in 1977. It contains glorious, life affirming music, which is as gloriously spiritual and uplifting now as it was when it was recorded nearly 40 years ago.

Kevin Ayers & The Whole World/Howling at the Moon ....import CD $17.99

Kevin Ayers was an English singer-songwriter and a major influential force in the English psychedelic movement. Ayers was a founding member of the pioneering psychedelic band Soft Machine in the mid-1960s, and was closely associated with the Canterbury scene.   This album was recorded live in Hyde Park back in 1970. Ayers' bandmate, the late and very much missed David Bedford remembered it: "There was a really nice gig in Hyde Park when Pink Floyd premiered Atom Heart Mother with orchestra and choir. The chap conducting that had just commissioned me to write a piece for his choir, so it was sort of my two worlds mixing up. It was a really hot day and really nice, it was a good piece Atom Heart Mother. After that came the first band album, Shooting at the Moon, and it was a typical mixture of things that happened at gigs; straight forward pleasant whimsical songs and crazy avant-garde plinky plonk stuff of the sort that I was doing in my concert music pieces.

The music on this album is powerful, selected to illustrate the yang side of the first chakra, the one in charge of life and death energies; designed to energize the body and to celebrate life. Samples of Inuits, Papoos, Tuvas, Ethiopian and Kurdish singers as well as samples of various wild animals facing extinction collected one by one by Pascal Menetrey between 1992 and 1999 and are musically shaped by Cyrille Verdeaux. The aim of Tribal Hybrid Music (THC) is to help stop all of these trails of tears, these massacres of innocents all around the globe.  Pascal Menetrey passed away accidently in 2006. This album is dedicated to his memory. RIP, Pascal.

Aviator/Aviator ....import CD $17.99

aviator.jpg (7832 bytes)

Aviator was founded in 1978 by Jack Lancaster (saxophone, flute, lyricon, synthesizer) and Mick Rogers (guitar & lead vocals) with the co-pilots Clive Bunker (drums) and John G. Perry (bass & vocals).  All four musicians already had an impressive background in different bands. They played a mixture of straightforward rock songs alternating with instrumental jazz-rock passages reminiscent of Colosseum and Blodwyn Pig, Jack Lancaster gave the band a typical sound with the lyricon and soprano saxophone.   The weak point was Mick Rogers's vocals. In early 1979 Aviator released their first record named 'Aviator' on Harvest/Electrola, coproduced by the band and Robin Lumley from Brand X. All tracks were cosigned by the band. The tracks are all different ranging from straightforward rock to jazz-rock and pop. This is a vastly under-rated artifact of a lost era; an era when music mattered far more than it does today.

Erik Norlander/Hommage Symphonique ....import CD $17.99

Hommage Symphonique celebrates the artist's progressive rock and jazz - fusion influences.  Hommage Symphonique is an album of progressive rock covers recorded by master keyboardist Erik Norlander along with the virtuoso band of Gregg Bissonette (d), Don Schiff (b) and Mark McCrite (g) with Kelly Keeling handling all of the vocal duties. Erik also employed a small ensemble of acoustic instruments featuring Jon Papenbrook (trumpets flugelhorn), Eric Jorgensen (trombones), Mike Alvarez (cello) and David Schiff (woodwinds). David is the brother of Don Schiff, and in addition to Don's NS/Stick work on the album, he also fills out the acoustic string ensemble with the new bowed guitar instrument.  Erik's choice of covers reflects his own broad musical taste, performing songs originally recorded by ELP, ELO, Yes, Rick Wakeman, King Crimson, Procol Harum and Jethro Tull and Chuck Mangione. The last artist may sound the most surprising, but Erik's stirring rendition of Mangione's 'Children of Sanchez' brings this jazz - fusion classic more into Erik's world of symphonic progressive rock supported by his seasoned and highly versatile band.

California prog rock team releases new instrumental opus!  After a 6-year hiatus, veteran prog rockers Erik Norlander (keyboards), Mark McCrite (guitars) and Don Schiff (NS/Sticks, cello) return with a powerful re-entry into the atmosphere with Supernatural Highways, a 30-minute allinstrumental deluxe EP that demonstrates the ongoing agility and perpetual motion of this accomplished group of musicians.  Keyboardist Erik Norlander explains, '2013 was the 20th anniversary of the first Rocket Scientists album, Earthbound, released in 1993. At the end of 2012, I got in touch with Mark and Don and suggested that we record some new music to mark the occasion.  We were all really into the idea, and like our last studio release -- the 5-disc Looking Backward set -- we ended up somewhere other than where we initially planned to go! But that's the spirit of rock 'n' roll, right?'  Supernatural Highways is available as a deluxe full-color 6-panel Digipak CD with original cover art and liner notes by producer, Erik Norlander.

Clepsydra is a Swiss neo-progressive band that was formed in 1990 by Aluisio Maggini (vocals), Lele Hofmann (guitars), Philip Hubert (keyboards), Andy Thommen (bass) and Pietro Duca (drums).  Says Andy: "We had no idea that there was a progressive rock scene.  In fact we never heard the expression progressive rock until about three months after the release of Hologram in 1991."  In 1998 Clepsydra released their third album Fears, the first album with Marco Cerulli on guitar. In the wake of the album release Clepsydra had a 10-day-long European tour and was booked for a concert in Canada on the strength of this production.

Pink Fairies were an English rock band active in the London underground and psychedelic scene of the early 1970s. They promoted free music, drug taking and anarchy and often performed impromptu gigs and other agitprop stunts, such as playing for free outside the gates at the Bath and Isle of Wight pop festivals in 1970, as well as appearing at Phun City, the second Glastonbury and many other free festivals including Windsor and Trentishoe.  Chinese Cowboys is an archive, unreleased live CD title that was recorded at two 1987 gigs the band had played in support of their '87 comeback album, Kill 'Em and Eat 'Em. These two shows took place at Leeds and at the Long Marston Speedway. If you're a Pink Fairies fan you need to get yourself a copy of this CD.

Rick Wakeman/1984 - Live at the Hammersmith Odeon 1981 ....import CD + DVD $18.99

Rick Wakeman teamed up with Tim Rice to write the 1984 album, a musical adaptation of George Orwell's book of the same name.  The project was a flop for a couple of reasons; critics panned it because Rice's lyrics tried to give the adaptation an upbeat ending, something the book did not have. Secondly, when Wakeman wanted to tour the production in the U.S. Orwell's estate would not give clearance.  The show was performed in the U.K. though and this concert features the opening overture and scattered later in the program, 'Julia' and 'The Proles.' The show overall is a mish-mash featuring 'Sea Horses' from the Rhapsodies album and then proven crowd pleasers from King Arthur, Henry VIII and Journey. The arrangements are changed on the familiar stuff from the three main albums and the band tackles the difficult 'Catherine of Aragon' and 'Anne of Cleaves' for the first time ever live. Wakeman introduces every song, joking that then the audience will have advance notice as to when to go to the bathroom.

Rick Wakeman/1975 Live at the Empire Pool - King Arthur on Ice ....import double CD $18.99

Rick Wakeman is one of those artists who really needs no introduction.  Rick writes: "There were just three performances of King Arthur on Ice and it was 'crucified' by most of the media before it had even had its opening night! Amazingly though, the demand from the press and media for tickets was unprecedented and which was met with a total refusal to all who had 'pre-reviewed' the event.  It was undoubtedly for me a high point of my musical career. I was pleased with the music and to this day feel that the main theme is probably the best I have written and will be hard to surpass. The shows were just great fun and were put on with virtually no outside assistance as very few people believed in it and indeed wanted it to happen.  Ice skating was not popular back in 1975 and so I enlisted the help of some of the world's greatest skaters from all over the world.  Thanks to people like Tony Burdfield at A&M Records, my band, the conductor David Measham and the English Chamber Choir, and the foresight of Alan Yentob, who filmed much of the show for the BBC, the memory still lives on. And my thoughts now? I'd just love to do it one more time!!!"

Clearlight/Forever Blowing Bubbles ....import CD $18.99

Cyrille Verdeaux, native of France, was born July 31, 1949 in Paris.  In 1963 at the age of 14, he entered the prestigious French National Conservatory of Music in Paris studying composition, harmony, and piano.  From 1966 to 1968 he won first place in student composition three successive times. During the student uprisings of 1968 he was dismissed from the Conservatory for his revolutionary activities. He then attended the Nice Conservatory earning a Masters diploma, returning to Paris to form the band Babylone with guitarist Christian Boule.  Forever Blowing Bubbles is a progressive rock album by Clearlight, released in 1975 on Virgin Records in the UK. It covers many contrasting genres including psychedelic, new age, folk, rock and jazz fusion jamming, and the closing track of abstract electronic music experimentation. Only two songs have vocals, and are sung in French.

Captain Beefheart/Harpo's Detroit Dec 11th 1980 ....import CD $17.99

Don Van Vliet has been described as 'one of modern music's true innovators,' with, 'a singular body of work virtually unrivalled in its 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.  This extraordinary record catches the Captain at his best; live on stage in 1980 during the tour for 'Doc at the Radar Station.'

Joey Molland, who had written the vast majority of the Badfinger's later output, remains an immensely under-rated and very talented songwriter, whose career has been blighted by the appalling catalogue of disasters which had overtaken his band. This collection of demos from various parts of his long career only proves to confirm, (as if any confirmation were needed) what an extraordinary songwriter this man is.   Originally from Liverpool, Molland now lives in America, where he continues to write and perform some beautiful music. Let's hope, with the re-release of this fantastic record that is star is finally in the ascendant.

Clepsydra is a Swiss neo-progressive band that was formed in 1990 by Aluisio Maggini (vocals), Lele Hofmann (guitars), Philip Hubert (keyboards), Andy Thommen (bass) and Pietro Duca (drums).  In 1991 Clepsydra released their first album, Hologram, which was followed by the EP Fly Man in 1993. Clepsydra then signed to InsideOut, who released their second album More Grains of Sand in 1994. This CD included the song Moonshine on Heights, which by many is regarded as neo-prog classic. 1994 also saw them performing two songs on national Swiss TV, a rare occurrence for a progressive rock band at that time. Following the release of four albums Clepsydra entered a state of hiatus. At this point they had established themselves as a popular entity among fans of neo-progressive rock, and they were often compared to the likes of Jadis, IQ and Fish-era Marillion.

PERRO/Planet Earth Rock 'n' Roll Orchestra ....import double CD $24.99

The Planet Earth Rock and Roll Orchestra (PERRO) was a loose conglomeration of Bay Area musicians who recorded together in the late 1960s and early 1970s. Best known as members of some of the greatest and most succesful recording ensembles of the era, such as The Grateful Dead, Jefferson Airplane and Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young, what many people don't realize that these musicians had been playing together for a decade or so before these home recordings were made.  Paul Kantner, Jerry Garcia, David Crosby and others had been friends for a long time. Way before they were famous they had played together in various folkclubs and coffee houses, as well as at private parties and in each others' homes.  It is all too easy to perceive superstars as having arrived into our communal consciousness fully fledged and with their repertoire fully formed. But, of course, the truth is nothing of the sort.  These extremely rare recordings give a uniquely valuable look behind the scenes at the creative processes of some of the most important songwriters and musicians of their generation, and it shows how the creative bond between them survived all the vicissitudes of fame and fortune, and was just as important in the early 1970s as it was when they were first starting out.

The Beatles/In Their Own Write ....import DVD $18.99

Almost universally accepted as the group who defined pop and rock music as we know it better and more conclusively than any other act before or since, The Beatles had, of course, many strings to their bow. But head and shoulders above any of their other talents and skills was the quite incredible songwriting genius of messrs Lennon and McCartney. Even before the boys had signed to EMI Records in 1962, John and Paul were creating the finest songbook ever composed in this idiom, a joyous body of work that would not only delight the world but would equally define modern music and provide a template for generations to come.  Run Time: 90 min.

When David Bowie first met Lou Reed in the early 1970s a bond was formed between the pair that would last until Lou's sad demise in 2013.  Built on huge mutual respect, a love of each other's music and a shared passion for living and working as close to the edge as anyone in the music industry has ever strayed, these two iconic artists, despite occasional rifts, remained close and worked together as late as 2003. This film charts the parallel careers of Bowie and Reed, focussing on their joint collaborations, shared interests and other connections. Replete with rare footage, exclusive and archive interviews, and contributions from those who were right there when the pair were at their most co-operative, this film takes an unusual and unique approach to documenting one of modern music's most fascinating partnerships.  Run Time: 107 min.

Their influence, profile and popularity are all as high today as ever they were since Led Zeppelin were forced to call it a day following the premature demise of their inimitable drummer, the legendary John Bonham in 1980. The band's extraordinary body of work still acts as a template for the entire rock genre and their every album is still seen as a classic. "Led Zeppelin: Way Down Inside" traces the entire story of Led Zep, from their formation in the late 1960s to their finale as a four piece in 1980.   60 minutes.

The Rolling Stones/A Golden Age ....import DVD $18.99

For most fans of 'the best rock & roll band ever' a favorite period or era is not uncommon. Some swear by the glorious mid-sixties when hit single after hit single was pouring out on an almost monthly basis. Others of course prefer the mid-to-late 1970s, but it would be no exaggeration to say that, for the majority of those who have shared a history with The Rolling Stones through the 60s, the 70s, the 80s and beyond, the period of Hyde Park, Let It Bleed, Stick Fingers, Exile On Main Street, and when Mick Taylor was on guitar watch, was the very finest period of Stones' career to date. This film documents, reviews and revises this period of history and with the aid of rare performance footage, archive and exclusive interviews provides the best program yet to emerge about The Rolling Stones and their Golden Age.  99 minutes.

Andy Colquhoun/String Theory ....import CD + DVD $18.99

Andy Colquhoun/String Theory ....import CD + DVD $18.99

For the best part of thirty years Andy Colquhoun was songwriting partner and collaborator with the legendary Mick Farren; a partnership which only ended with Mick's sad death in July 2013.  In 2001 he released his first ever solo album.  Andy writes: "There comes a time in the life of every guitar player when he or she gets the chance to make a solo album. This is my attempt, and I've put as much guitar on it as possible."  Contains bonus DVD.

Soon to be out of print

These classic Raisins and Psychodots titles from Adrian Belew cohorts and fellow Bears, Rob Fetters, Bob Nyswonger and Chris Arduser, will soon be going out of print.  Our remaining stock is all that's left.  Get them now while they're still available.

The Raisins/The Raisins ....CD $19.99

The Raisins/The Raisins ....CD $19.99

Before there was The Psychodots, before there was The Bears, there was The Raisins!  Including guitarist/vocalist Rob Fetters and bassist Bob Nyswonger (all hail the glory that is Bob), and produced by their future Bears co-hort Adrian Belew, The Raisins self titled album was originally released on vinyl in May of 1983.  Included is the Rob Fetters composition 'Fear Is Never Boring,' a regional number one hit which was later re-recorded by The Bears to become their first single.  Due to the original vinyl time limitations, there were three tracks left off the original record - Sucker Punch, Sugar Baby Honey Pie, and Interspecies Love.  The album has since been remastered and sequenced for CD and those three 'lost tracks' have been restored!

The Raisins/Everything & More (ltd. ed.) ....4 CD-R set $39.99

The Raisins/Everything & More (ltd. ed.) ....4 CD-R set $39.99

Everything & More started life as a 3 cassette package which contained all of the songs the Raisins had never released on vinyl. When they knew they were going to break up, this package became their swan song. This set had been unavailable for quite some time.  Eventually there was a small run of 4 CD-R sets printed.  But those disappeared almost immediately, reappeared many years later when the band printed up a batch for a reunion gig, only to disappear even more quickly.  Due to consistent demand, The Artist Shop has made arrangements with the band to do a small print run just for us!   Thank you Rob 'n' Bob (Fetters & Nyswonger)!  This is certainly a must have for any fan of The Raisins, The Psychodots and The Bears.  Order your copy now or be left out in the cold!  Features guitarist Rob Fetters, bassist Bob Nyswonger (both of the Psychodots and the Bears) drummer Bam Powell and keyboardist Rick Niehiesel.

Mike Bloomfield-Al Kooper-Steve Stills/Super Session ....Hybrid SACD $31.99

Mike Bloomfield-Al Kooper-Steve Stills/Super Session ....Hybrid SACD $31.99

Al Kooper was an A&R executive with Columbia Records in the early 1960's after leaving the group Blood Sweat & Tears. The Super Session album was conceived as a jam session with Kooper on keyboards and former Paul Butterfield Blues Band member Mike Bloomfield on lead guitar along with veteran studio musician and Wrecking Crew member "Fast" Eddie Hoh on drums and Barry Goldberg, also on keyboards. Bloomfield was available during the first day of recording for Side 1 (Tracks 1-5) of the LP. For the second day of recording, Kooper brought in former Buffalo Springfield guitarist Stephen Stills to perform on the music that became Side 2 (Tracks 6-9) of the LP. Recorded on a shoestring budget over a 2-day period in Los Angeles, Super Session went on to become a rock classic and earned the trio a gold record for sales of over one million copies.   The package includes new liner notes written by Al Kooper that tells the story of the Super Session album and the new 5.1 Multichannel mix. The 5.1 mix by Al Kooper with mastering by Bob Ludwig was never released and yet it has acquired some fame from industry insiders familiar with the Multichannel mix with comments like "excellent" and "it deserves to be heard."  The new mastering of the stereo tracks for new SACD Stereo and CD Stereo audio are by mastering engineer Steve Hoffman.

George Benson/Breezin' ....Hybrid SACD $31.99

George Benson/Breezin' ....Hybrid SACD $31.99

Breezin' by singer and guitarist George Benson is the best-selling jazz album of all time. Breezin' is a true virtuoso performance: a four-time Grammy nominee and two-time winner, the first album by a jazz artist to earn platinum certification.  Originally released in 1976, Breezin' - spearheaded by the hit single "This Masquerade" - was the album that first alerted the publc at large to Benson's talents. Long before that, however, he was known to jazz fans as "very probably the most gifted guitarist since Wes Montgomery."  Produced by Tommy Lipuma, Breezin' features Benson with keyboardists Ronnie Foster and Jorge Dalto, rhythm guitarist Phil Upchurch, drummer Harvey Mason, bass player Stanley Banks and percussionist Ralph MacDonald.  Leon Russell's "This Masquerade" (the first song in music history to occupy the #1 spot in jazz, pop and R & B charts), featuring Benson's soulful vocal and his trademark guitar-voice scatting technique, is the album's only non-instrumental. The other numbers include Bobby Womack's title song, the winner of Grammies for Record of the Year and Best Pop Instrumental.  The 5.1 Surround Sound mix is produced by Al Schmitt. The 5.1 Surround Sound mastering is by Doug Sax at The Mastering Lab. The original 2-track stereo and DSD mastering is by Steve Hoffman at Marsh Mastering studio.

Yes/Heaven & Earth ....CD $16.99

Yes is an English rock band who achieved worldwide success with their progressive, arty, and symphonic style of rock music.

Saga/Sagacity ....double CD $17.99

Saga/Sagacity ....double CD $17.99

With Saga's new album 'Sagacity,' the Canadian progressive rockers manageto keep their signature sound alive with a touch of modernity. Or as Michael Sadler puts it: 'For me this album marks a return to many of the signature elements that put Saga on the map, while maintaining a firm grip on the here and now. The balance between past, present and future is the key and I think that's what we've managed to achieve. Quite simply, this is SAGA...2014!'  Sagacity - the English expression which in other words means wisdom and cleverness - pun intended - has always been a huge part of the band philosophy.   Saga has gotten wiser over the years which shows in their thoughtful, multi-leveled lyrics. They have gotten smarter with their music arrangements, always leaving the listener amazed with their creativity and inventiveness.  Their richness of ideas reflects on the always newly sounding keyboard sounds as well as in its striking melodies. On top of it is MichaelSadler's distinctive voice which molds the sound of Saga, and he does so in an extremely good way.  Sagacity includes a bonus CD - 'Saga Hits' - including nine live recordings from an energetic performance at the SWR1 Rockarena Festival in 2013.  Ranging from one classic like 'The Cross' to another like 'On the Loose,' the bonus CD surely proves why Saga are still going stronge!

Marillion/A Sunday Night Above the Rain ....CD $16.99

Marillion/A Sunday Night Above the Rain ....CD $16.99

Every two years since 2002, Marillion and their most dedicated fans gather together for a very special weekend in the UK, the Netherlands andCanada.  On three nights, Marillion perform three different shows with different set lists, consisting of full albums played from start to finish, fan favorites and rarities.  Fans travel from all over the world to be part of these truly amazing nights.  Between March 8 to March 10, 2013 Marillion and their fans gathered in Port Zelande, Netherlands. On March 10, Marillion (for the first time)performed their most recent and widely acclaimed studio album, "Sounds That Can't Be Made" in its entirety. What a performance it was: the venue, the 2,500 strong audience and the songs were what made the night unique.   Besides the eight album tracks, the band also performed a selection of fan favorites ranging from "This Strange Engine" to "Garden Party," the most successful single from the band's debut album from the Fish-era. Rarely or hardly ever performed by front man SteveHogarth, the song definitely is one of the evening's highlights.

Warren Cuccurullo & Ustad Sultan Khan/The Master ....CD $13.99

Warren Cuccurullo & Ustad Sultan Khan/The Master ....CD $13.99

The Master is a once in a lifetime collaboration between guitar virtuoso Warren Cuccurullo and legendary, Indian sarangi master, Ustad Sultan Khan.  Khan, who passed away in 2011, is considered the greatest sarangi (a bowed, short-necked stringed instrument that figures prominently in Hindustani music) player of modern times. He performed with Ravi Shankar, composed for Bollywood blockbusters and was a member of Bill Laswell's East/West supergroup, Tabla Beat Science.  Cucurrullo came to prominence at a young age, recording and touring as a guitar wunderkind with Frank Zappa, most notably performing all of the rhythm guitar parts on the Joe's Garage albums. He also was a founding member of New Wave hit makers Missing Persons and most recently, has been a member of Duran Duran, co-writing some of their most famous songs including "Ordinary World" and "Come Undone."  These two very different players met through Cuccurrullo's passion for Indian music and collaborated in 1998 during two days of duet sessions that featured Warren's beautiful and textural ambient guitar loops and Khan's sweeping sarangi playing and vocals. The recordings were never released however, until after Khan's passing, Cuccurrullo uncovered the outdated, 24 track Tascam tapes. While bass and drums were added in 2014, no changes have been made to the original guitar and sarangi parts, as Warren had no intention of changing the magic that occurred over those original sessions.  Since he was given his first sitar when visiting Frank Zappa in 1977, Indian music has circulated around Warren Cuccrullo's life, predominantly as a fan, occasionally as a player. With the release of The Master, Cuccurullo is the same age that Khan was when they sat together in his London apartment sixteen years ago. The rest, as they say, is history...one that we can listen to now, for the first time.

Karen Mantler/Business Is Bad ....CD $17.99

Karen Mantler/Business Is Bad ....CD $17.99

"Business is bad," confesses Karen Mantler, and many in the music world will sympathize. Almost 20 years have passed since Karen's last leader album on XtraWatt (Farewell). In the interim she has been a Virgin artist with her Pet Project disc, appeared on several recordings with parents Michael Mantler (The School of Understanding) and Carla Bley (The Carla Bley Big Band Goes To Church, Looking for America, Appearing Nightly), been a member of the Golden Palaminos, participated in diverse Robert Wyatt tribute bands and homages to Disney and Nino Rota, played accordion on street corners, given harmonica lessons, and served coffee in SoHo.

The Allman Brothers Band/The 1971 Fillmore East Recordings ....6 CD Set $75.99
The Allman Brothers Band/The 1971 Fillmore East Recordings ....triple Blu-Ray Audio $95.99

The Allman Brothers Band/The 1971 Fillmore East Recordings ....6 CD Set $75.99

Since its opening chord, rock and roll has been about playing live, and no group did it better, and with more passion and improvisational skill than the original Allman Brothers Band. Nothing is truer than when the band achieved its artistic and commercial breakthrough in 1971 with the release of At Fillmore East, featuring extended renderings of their songs "In Memory of Elizabeth Reed" and "Whipping Post." It is often considered one of the best live albums ever made.  "The 1971 Fillmore East Recordings" is the five Fillmore east concerts compiled together in Blu-Ray, CD and LP formats - 37 tracks, 15 of which are previously unreleased. This is a never before released look into those epic live shows and it showcases the Allman Brothers Southern rock at its most elastic, bluesy, and jazzy. It also includes extensive liner notes within the accompanying booklet, which allows us a look into what made those concerts so special, both for the audience and the band.

Grammy award winning vocalist Maria Muldaur ("Midnight at the Oasis") rounds out the line-up.

Chicago/Now - Chicago XXXVI ....CD $16.99

Chicago/Now - Chicago XXXVI ....CD $16.99

When Chicago exploded onto the music scene with their stellar 1969 double-LP debut, Chicago Transit Authority, the band's innovative fusion of up-front horns in a rock 'n' roll context and impeccable pop sensibilities was an instant smash. According to Billboard chart history and stats, Chicago is second only to the Beach Boys as the most successful American rock band of all time, in terms of both album and singles sales. Judged by album sales alone, as certified by the R.I.A.A., the band is still among the Top Ten best-selling U.S. groups in history.  "Now" (Chicago XXXVI) is the band's first new album of original material since the release of "XXX" in 2006, and once again these icons offer their signature fiery, jazz-rooted brass arrangements over slick pop rock songs.

Keith Jarrett & Charlie Haden/Last Dance ....CD $17.99

Keith Jarrett and Charlie Haden broaden the scope of their duo project to showcase jazz classics like Thelonious Monk's "Round Midnight" and Bud Powell's spritely "Dance Of The Infidels." Love songs, however, are to the fore in this selection, with tender versions of "My Old Flame," "My Ship," "It Might As Well Be Spring," "Everything Happens To Me," and "Every Time We Say Goodbye" as well as alternate takes of "Where Can I Go Without You" and "Goodbye," every bit as touching as the Jasmine renditions. "When we play together it's like two people singing," said Jarrett of his reunion with Haden. The intentions of the song are honored, the shades of meaning in a melody or a lyric explored instrumentally. As Charlie Haden put it, "Keith really listens, and I listen. That's the secret. It's about listening."  The music of Last Dance was recorded at Keith Jarrett's home studio.

Uriah Heep debuted in 1970 with the release of one of hard rock music's milestones "Very 'eavy... Very 'umble" and have since sold in excess of 30 million albums worldwide.

Michael Bloomfield/Between the Hard Place & the Ground and More ....CD $14.99

Michael Bloomfield/Between the Hard Place & the Ground and More ....CD $14.99

Despite a few high-profile '70s outings (KGB, the Electric Flag reunion), Michael Bloomfield had no interest in living up to the unseemly mythology surrounding his guitar-hero past, whether with the Paul Butterfield Blues Band, Bob Dylan's "Highway 61" recording sessions, the Electric Flag, or his collaboration with Al Kooper and Stephen Stills' Super Session. And he'd had it with the dog and pony show of the music biz. A liberating, raucous, to-hell-with-all-expectations vibe permeates the live 1979 "Hard Place" sessions - music played without guile, simply for the sheer joy of it. Still, Bloomfield struggled with bottling that kind of fervour in the studio. Raw and unfocused, "Cruisin' For A Bruisin'" (recorded 1980), discounting posthumous releases, was Bloomfield's studio swansong. By all accounts the sessions were difficult. Producer Norman Dayron, who curated Bloomfield's career from the mid '70s on, is candid regarding "Cruisin' For A Bruisin'," telling journalist Ralph Heibutzki that it suffered a tortured birth, "because Michael was using drugs and the musicians were a very odd assortment of people." Nevertheless, one could envisage what Bloomfield was grasping for: a no-borders amalgamation of American music - encompassing blues of all styles, Crescent City funk, rockabilly, folk, and instrumentals both atmospheric and electrifying.  17 tracks, unavailable for over 10 years as a domestic release.   Contains tracks from "Between the Hard Place & the Ground" and "Cruisin' for a Bruisin'."  Remastered from the original master tapes.

Winger/Better Days Comin' ....CD $14.99
Winger/Better Days Comin' [Deluxe Edition] ....CD + DVD $17.99

Winger/Better Days Comin' ....CD $14.99

Brand new studio album from these classic hard rockers. Once again Winger offers an exciting mixture of the melodic and commercial approach of their first two albums (which catapulted Winger into massive popularity in the height of the era where massive MTV play equated to instant stardom) with the more technical and almost progressive rock feel of such albums as "Pull" or "IV."  "Better Days Comin'" is a logical follow up to the critically acclaimed "Karma," which was hailed as one of the band's best releases ever. "Better Days Comin'" is an amazing new record where the four band members: Kip Winger (ex-Alice Cooper), Reb Beach (Whitesnake), Rod Morgenstein (Dixie Dregs, Steve Morse) and John Roth (Starship, Giant) shine with an intense display of incredible instrumental and vocal prowess. A fine set of hard rock songs with an uncanny sense of melody.  Deluxe edition includes one audio bonus track and a DVD including a documentary "Making of the album" and two videoclips.

Alice Cooper/Super Duper Alice Cooper ....DVD $15.99

From Banger Films, the creators of 'Iron Maiden: Flight 666' and 'Rush: Beyond The Lighted Stage,' comes 'Super Duper Alice Cooper' on - the story of Vincent Furnier, the preacher's son who struck fear into the hearts of parents everywhere as Alice Cooper, the most outrageous rock star of his generation. This unique 'doc opera,' a dizzying blend of documentary archive footage, animation and rock opera goes from the early days of Alice as the frontman for a cutting edge rock band in the sixties through the hazy decadence of global celebrity in the seventies and on to his winking comeback as the glam metal godfather in the eighties.

David Sylvian & Robert Fripp/The First Day ....import CD $21.99

David Sylvian & Robert Fripp/The First Day ....import CD $21.99

1993's Sylvian and Fripp's The First Day surprised many with its hard-hitting sound.   Perhaps closer in spirit to the mid-1990s King Crimson to come than Sylvian's past work, the album boldly fused the accessible and the experimental, and in the exquisite Bringing Down the Light offered the first recorded example of Fripp's contemporary Soundscapes approach.  Robert Fripp guested on David Sylvian's 1986 album Gone to Earth. Sylvian/Fripp evolved as an extension of that collaboration, initially with gigs as a trio with future King Crimson member Trey Gunn on stick, followed by a full length studio album with the addition of Jerry Marotta on Drums, Marc Anderson on percussion & vocalist Ingrid Chavez. The album entered the UK Top 30 on release in summer 1993, its eclectic mix featuring short songs, extended, looped funk and rock hybrids surprised and pleased fans of both artists with, perhaps, only the beautiful closing track Bringing Down the Light with its Soundscapes over ambient backdrop washes coming close to that which might have been expected prior to release. A single, Jean the Birdman, was issued shortly after the album and the releases were supported by a full band tour.  Song driven yet leaving ample room for instrumental exploration, The First Day is a great advert for such occasional meetings insofar as it manages to showcase the individual strengths of both artists while drawing something new and unexpected from their joint work.  As such, it is one of the best remembered of the many collaborative recordings by both artists.

David Sylvian & Robert Fripp/Damage ....import CD $21.99

David Sylvian & Robert Fripp/Damage ....import CD $21.99

The 2001 David Sylvian mix of Sylvian and Fripp's powerful live album from 1994 Damage.   With a well-received studio album in the form of The First Day issued in summer 1993, Sylvian/Fripp took to the road for a lengthy tour to support the release. Trey Gunn reprised his role from the earlier tour and studio recordings as stick player, while Pat Mastelotto joined the group on drums, a position which led to his being offered a role in the 1990s King Crimson, a band in which he has remained a member of every line-up since. Producer and recordings artist Michael Brook completed the touring ensemble.  Damage was recorded at the final London concerts in December 1993 and issued in 1994. Whereas the studio album had a measured grace and power, the live album was even more muscular on the rock pieces, drawing some extraordinary performances from all contributors. This made the contrast with the quieter, more ambient material even more pronounced, with audiences able to hear every nuance of the material. David Sylvian had rarely sounded better or more comfortable in a live setting. Robert Fripp provided some of his most blistering solos. Songs from the recent studio album were featured as were fan favourites from David's solo albums and Rain Tree Crow, alongside one new song The First Day.  Initially released as a limited edition in 1994, the album quickly sold out and became a highly sought after recording. The album was remixed by David Sylvian and issued in 2001 with a slightly altered track-listing and running order.  It is this second edition of the album that is now being reissued.

No-Man/Schoolyard Ghosts (mini-LP sleeve packaging) ....import double CD $29.99

The second release on the Kscope label and No-Man's sixth official studio album, Schoolyard Ghosts - its first since 2003's atmospheric break-up album, Together We're Stranger - generated some of the best press and sales of the band's career.   Re-released as a 2CD set in vinyl replica packaging, the new edition features a bonus disc of rare material including demos and alternative versions of tracks from the album, plus b-sides. The bonus disc also includes an EP's worth of Tim Bowness's home studio recordings, which formed the basis of several of the album's songs.  Recorded between Autumn 2007 and Spring 2008, Schoolyard Ghosts is a distinctive combination of beautifully detailed songwriting, haunting melodies and inventively cinematic production.   The album saw No-Man's core duo of Tim Bowness and Steven Wilson expanding the band's sonic palette by collaborating with, amongst others Californian pedal steel ace Bruce Kaphan (American Music Club), saxophonist/flautist Theo Travis, drummers Pat Mastelotto and Gavin Harrison, and the London Session Orchestra (arranged by Dave Stewart).  Contains the semi-orchestral 12 minute epic Truenorth, fan favourite Wherever There Is Light and the intense sonic maelstrom of Mixtaped.  Includes sleeve notes on the making of the album.

"This is the start of a new Journey," says Rick Wakeman, "the original score for the album had been lost for so many years, making any new performances impossible.  But after it turned up without warning, we managed to restore it and add previously missing music that was not included in the original performances. It has taken another half decade to develop it into this album and tour, but I can't wait to take Jules Verne's magnificent story on the road again."

Is there a song still inside me? In my heart? I see life and what's happening to me.

Neil Young/A Letter Home ....CD $17.99

Neil Young/A Letter Home ....CD $17.99

Neil Young recorded a collection of covers with Jack White on a refurbished 1947 Voice-O-Graph recording booth at Third Man's Nashville headquarters. Imagine a very simple recording studio not much larger than a phone booth and you'll get the idea. He describes the album as "an unheard collection of rediscovered songs from the past recorded on ancient electro-mechanical technology captures and unleashes the essence of something that could have been gone forever." Recorded live to track to one-track, mono, the album has an inherent warm, primitive feel of a vintage Folkways recording.  As for the track-listing, Young chose songs that have personal meaning for him, such as British folk artist Bert Jansch's "Needle of Death" (which inspired Young to write 1972's "Needle and the Damage Done"), Bob Dylan's "Girl from the North Country," Willie Nelson's "Crazy," Don Everly's "I Wonder If I Care as Much," Bruce Springsteen's "My Home Town," and many others.

Deep Purple/Made in Japan (Deluxe Edition) ....double CD $24.99
Deep Purple/Made in Japan (Deluxe Limited Edition) ....4 CD + DVD + Vinyl Single $89.99

Deep Purple/Made in Japan (Remastered) ....CD $12.99

Together with Led Zeppelin and Black Sabbath, Deep Purple have been referred to as the unholy trinity of British hard rock and heavy metal in the early to mid-Seventies. One of the most influential and important guitar bands in history, they have sold over 100 million albums worldwide.  Made in Japan was recorded live over three nights during August 15 17, 1972 at Festival Hall, Osaka and Budokan, Tokyo. Four of the tracks come from the band's 1972 Machine Head album. It featured what many consider the classic Deep Purple lineup Ian Gillan (vocals), Ritchie Blackmore (guitars), Roger Glover (bass), Jon Lord (organ) and Ian Paice (drums). Originally recorded only for the Japanese market, the album has since become seen as one of Deep Purple's seminal albums, and one of the greatest live albums of all time (a Rolling Stone reader's poll in 2012 voted Made in Japan as the sixth greatest live album of all time).  For 2014, the album has been newly remastered and presented in a number of special formats. The format options include previously unseen footage on DVD, bonus material and mixes, memorabilia and a hardback book.  The Limited Edition Deluxe Boxed Set includes remastered audio of all three complete shows across 4CDs, a DVD featuring rare documentary and live footage, a 7" promo single, and a 60+ Page hard bound book filled with rare and previously unseen photos and memorabilia.

Dream Theater/The Studio Albums 1992-2011 ....11 CD Set $69.99

Dream Theater/The Studio Albums 1992-2011 ....11 CD Set $69.99

The Studio Albums 1992-2011 collects the first 10 studio albums from Dream Theater's groundbreaking two-decade-plus career, from 1992's RIAA gold-certified classic debut, Images & Words to 2011's Grammy nominated milestone, A Dramatic Turn of Events.   With total sales exceeding 10 million albums and DVDs worldwide, Dream Theater have long stood among the upper echelon of hard rock giants. Albums such as Images & Words (featuring the breakthrough top 10 single, "Pull Me Under") and 2002 s double album, Six Degrees of Inner Turbulance have earned the Long Island-based band countless accolades for their visionary synthesis of melodic power and virtuosic experimentation, including being named as one of Rolling Stone's top 10 "Best Prog Rock Bands of All Time."

Jefferson Airplane/Grace's Debut ....CD $16.99

Jefferson Airplane/Grace's Debut ....CD $16.99

Live at the Fillmore Auditorium 10/16/66 Early & Late Shows. This is it, folks, the first set of concerts featuring Grace Slick as a member of the Jefferson Airplane, a mere day after Signe Anderson officially left the band. It's too early for the band to play any of the material (Somebody to Love; White Rabbit) that Grace brought to the band, but her harmony work with Marty and Paul is remarkable, and you can literally hear her confidence growing from the first show to the next! Includes The Other Side of This Life; Let's Get Together; Let Me In; Don't Let Me Down; Run Around; It's No Secret; Tobacco Road; Kansas City (this Leiber & Stoller song has never been released on any other Airplane album or compilation!); Bringing Me Down; This Is My Life; High Flyin' Bird; Thing (a version of this jam appeared on the Live at the Fillmore East CD released a few years back), and 3/5 of a Mile in 10 Seconds. Things would never be the same for the band or for '60s rock.

The Doors/Weird Scenes Inside the Goldmine ....double CD $18.99

The Doors/Weird Scenes Inside the Goldmine ....double CD $18.99

After releasing a now sold out, limited edition vinyl pressing for Record Store Day 2014, The Doors will now make their legendary, long out-of-print compilation Weird Scenes Inside the Gold Mine available for the first time as a 2-CD set.  The 22 songs that appear on the collection provide a wide-ranging introduction to the music recorded between 1967-71 by the original quartet, John Densmore, Robby Krieger, Ray Manzarek and Jim Morrison. The band's longtime engineer Bruce Botnick remastered the music heard on this reissue, which takes its title from a lyric in "The End."

Long John Baldry/The Best of the Stony Plain Years ....CD $13.99

Long John Baldry/The Best of the Stony Plain Years ....CD $13.99

Stony Plain Records has been releasing outstanding roots and blues music since 1976. This series dips into the vaults and helps celebrate some of the label's most acclaimed artists.  British Blues pioneer Long John Baldry (1941 - 2005) recorded for Stony Plain from 1991 up until his death.  He had started performing acoustic blues in London in the late '50s and worked with fellow blues pioneers Alexis Korner and Cyril Davies in the early '60s. Baldry was an inspiration to The Rolling Stones and Eric Clapton, and mentored Rod Stewart and Elton John.  Stony Plains felt honored to release his new albums, reissues and to work with him on many additional projects and tours.

Iain Matthews & Searing Quartet/Joy Mining ....CD $16.99
Iain Matthews & Egbert Derix/In the Now ....CD $16.99

Iain Matthews & Searing Quartet/Joy Mining ....CD $16.99                Iain Matthews & Egbert Derix/In the Now ....CD $16.99

Hot off the release of The Art Of Obscurity, Ian Matthews' first U.S. release in 15 years, Omnivore Recordings is proud to reissue two titles which are also making their debut on this side of the world.  Originally released in 2008 and 2011 respectively, Joy Mining and In the Now are collaborative works with Dutch pianist Egbert Derix, who also co-wrote eight of the tracks on the critically acclaimed The Art Of Obscurity.   A master of many genres, Matthews' storied career has seen him with the original line-up of Fairport Convention, Matthews Southern Comfort ("Woodstock") and his solo hit "Shake It" in 1978. For these releases, he raises that bar, with his distinctive vocals gliding over a jazz backing provided by Derix and the Searing Quartet.   Joy Mining takes the listener on a journey they may not have expected. This unique collaboration marries sharp songwriting and intricate arrangements featuring Derix's keyboards, saxophone, upright bass and drums across its twelve tracks.   In the Now combines Derix's keyboards, plus saxophone, upright bass, drums, guitar and a string section, moving effortlessly from the plaintive "Restless" to the epic 8+ minute "Be Small."

The Moody Blues/Seventh Sojurn (180 Gram Audiophile Vinyl/Limited Anniversary Edition) ....vinyl LP $34.99

The Moody Blues/Seventh Sojurn (180 Gram Audiophile Vinyl/Limited Anniversary Edition) ....vinyl LP $34.99

"Seventh Sojourn" was a huge multi-platinum smash for The Moody Blues and a stellar example of how important their symphonic progressive rock sound was for the fans of this legendary English quintet. Although four decades young, the album stands as a modern day classic. Out of print on vinyl for years, "Seventh Soujourn" was impeccably mastered from the original Threshold Records tapes onto 180 gram vinyl and packaged in a gatefold jacket with the original full color album art unavailable since the original 1972 release.

BARCLAY JAMES HARVEST - Barclay James Harvest & Other Short Stories $20.95
Digitally remastered edition of this album is presented as a mini-LP gatefold replica (including original liner notes and pics) with paper spine (obi) plus inner sleeve containing complete lyrics. More than 40 years since its original release (November 1971) and more than 10 since its last reissue, we proudly announce the ultimate remastered edition of one of the most acclaimed UK progressive rock bands in the world: Barclay James Harvest. Presented here is the third album from the great Oldham group, titled BARCLAY JAMES HARVEST & OTHER SHORT STORIES. It was produced by the band and Wally Allen, formerly bassist of The Pretty Things and debuting here as a producer. Although this album does suffer slightly from having been rather rushed in the studio, it still sounds extraordinarily fresh, and contains at least two bona fide BJH classics: 'Medicine Man' and 'After The Day'.

EDGAR BROUGHTON BAND - Edgar Broughton Band $20.95
Digitally remastered and expanded reissue of this 1971 album is presented as a mini-LP gatefold replica (including original liner notes and pics) with paper spine (obi) plus inner sleeve containing complete lyrics. Formed in Warwick, England, The Edgar Broughton Band arrived on the London underground music scene in 1968. Led by the Broughton brothers, vocalist/guitarist Edgar and drummer Steve, and fleshed out by bassist Arthur Grant and guitarist Victor Unitt (who also briefly served with The Pretty Things), they soon signed with the Harvest label where they released five albums. In 1971 they produced their magnum opus, the self titled EDGAR BROUGHTON BAND, also known as 'the meat album' for its obvious artwork connotations, which is one of the highlights of the renowned creative studio Hipgnosis. Despite its misleading title, this is in fact the Edgar Broughton Band's third album.

DAVIS, MILES - 1958 Miles $21.95
Digitally remastered and expanded edition in mini LP sleeve with obi. Miles Davis' quintet was formed in 1955 and is widely regarded as one of the greatest combos in jazz history. Each of its members were individual creative forces that could have easily been leaders. This CD follows an extremely rare Japanese LP edition, and includes sides from Miles' initial years with the Columbia label.

DAVIS, MILES - Complete 1960 Holland Concerts $39.95
EU-only three CD set. Miles Davis gave two concerts at Amsterdam's Concertgebouw in 1960 as part of a Jazz at the Philharmonic package, one on April 9 and the other on October 15. On the first, his quintet showcased John Coltrane, who had reticently agreed to join Miles for the gig and left the group shortly after. For that reason, he was replaced on the October performance by Sonny Stitt. Both concerts (in excellent sound quality) are presented here in their entirety, along with a second concert given by the group with Coltrane on April 9 in Scheveningen. As a bonus, we have added a quartet set by Coltrane with Miles' rhythm section recorded in Dusseldorf during that same tour (Miles didn't play on this filmed session because he wanted more money than what was available for the project).

In typical neo-Unplugged fashion, Strings Attached doesn't rock much, but it has a bit more backbone than you might expect -- the stripped-down versions of ''All the Way From Memphis'' and ''Once Bitten, Twice Shy'' are good rollicking fun -- and it finds Hunter in strong voice, calling up the sort of passion that marks his best music.

It features songs written throughout her entire career, from her very first song, ''Sweet Joy'', to the previously unrecorded Nick Drake & Beverley Martyn song ''Reckless Jane'' which was started in 1974 when Drake lived nearby Beverley in Hampstead. I couldn't look at it for a long time after he died, but then finally I decided to finish it.'' Les Cousins Music Antologia , Wim Mertens

SOFT MACHINE - Live In 1970 UK $33.95
Limited deluxe four CD set. These live recordings feature the band in a transitional stage from the darlings of the London Underground scene of the late '60s to the Jazz Rock outfit they became. The line up of the band on these recordings features Mike Ratledge, Robert Wyatt, Hugh Hopper and Elton Dean. Discs One and Two were recorded at Ronnie Scott's, and cover material from their first three albums. Discs Three and Four feature musician Lyn Dobson, and this line up only lasted three months, and includes a 22 minute version of Hopper's classic 'Facelift'.

UK two CD set from the British Avant-Jazz/Prog band. The Soft Machine, along with The Pink Floyd and The Crazy World Of Arthur Brown, were part of the UFO/London Underground scene in the mid-'60s. This set combines two separate albums that featured a collection of material that formed much of their live set of the day, and went on to be their classic debut album The Soft Machine. Features the original line up of Robert Wyatt, Mike Ratledge, Kevin Ayers and Daevid Allen. We have done our best to improve, and enhance the sound from the limited material we had, and it sounds pretty good to us!

Tagliapietra.Pagliuca - Prog Exhibition 2010 Live in CD $48.95

TANGERINE DREAM - Chandra - The Phantom Ferry - Part Ii $29.95
It was on December 7th, 1977 at 7 pm when Carlos Enduras climbed up his way to the data shelter in the Greenland hills to check a malfunction which occurred on the monitors at the military headquarter near Thule, Greenland's capital. Carlos all in a sudden was confronted by a character whose behaviour was strange and unknown to him as a human being. Sentences of serious concerns did strike him mentally like ''You're not even able to understand your own life plans full of confusion and you don't have any knowledge at all about the manifestation of other life forms - how will you identify any data outside the range of your imperfect equipment which is totally useless for the aims of your project?'' After a longer conversation, the character disappeared, but offered a second talk next day 7pm, same place up in the mountains of Greenland. Now this is the continuation of the Chandra story: Part two - exciting and unique music developed from of a mysterious unusual story. Amazing how precise some information has been given about the future of the human race, way beyond pure fiction, reflected by sounds and driving sequences

TANGERINE DREAM - Sorcerer 2014 $35.95
2014 two CD set from the German Electronic pioneers led by Edgar Froese. This double disc release contains the music the band performed in Copenhagen from the last rehearsal session in Vienna, 2014. As the title suggests, this is the music from the soundtrack of the 1977 film newly arranged and re-recorded with fresh sounds plus one hour of additional material not included on the original soundtrack.

Ten Years After - Positive Vibrations (Bonus Tracks) 2PC Remastered CD $27.95

TOTO - Hydra W/BK $22.95
Digitally remastered edition of this sophomore album from the AOR superstars. When they returned with their second album HYDRA, originally released in 1979, their fans and critics were confronted with a work that although immediately recognizable, was considerably more advanced and complex. Instead of serving up another dish of stylistic pop rock, they reached deep inside and committed to elaborate compositions and intricate arrangements. In many respects the approach could be traced directly back to the band's progressive rock leanings; something that their musical ability and dexterity had always hinted at. Actually HYDRA is arguably Toto's finest hour. It is a record that combines all the positive aspects of a band that not only wrote great songs but also presented them in a format that wasn't cliched or pedestrian. The title track, for instance, is a seven minutes plus anthem that has become a career cornerstone, whilst shorter, sharper tracks such as 'White Sister' and 'All Us Boys' reinforced the AOR backbone in spectacular form.

TOTO - Toto W/BK $22.95
Digitally remastered edition of the AOR band's debut album. The release of the debut Toto album signaled a significant tipping point in the development of Rock. Similar sounding acts such as Foreigner, Journey and Steely Dan had sowed the seeds of melodic AOR but none at that point had truly crafted the definitive role model. Toto took basic elements and turned them into pure gold by crafting a sound that was precise, cultivated and pretty much flawless, blending memorable songs with state of the art production and melodies that would propel their songs onto the airwaves from Los Angeles to London and all points in between. The album included two massive worldwide hit singles, 'Hold The Line' and 'I'll Supply The Love', securing them a top ten album in the Billboard Charts and double Platinum certification. Elsewhere the tracks range from the soulful pop of 'Georgy Porgy' to the raging, almost malevolent, hard rock of 'Girl Goodbye'.

TOTO - Turn Back W/BK $22.95
Digitally remastered edition of this 1981 album from the AOR band. You could say that TURN BACK is the lost Toto album. Whilst their debut record achieved double platinum sales figures, producing two global hit singles, and it's follow up HYDRA, was eventually acknowledged as a neo progressive rock triumph, TURN BACK flew beneath the radar and barely caused a blip on the charts before disappearing from sight. The fact that their follow up album Toto IV has won an unprecedented seven Grammys and contained three top 10 hit singles only seems to emphasize the point. Originally issued in 1981, it found the band taking a far more aggressive approach, dialing down the keyboards and upping the guitar quota by a considerable margin. Once again, much of the material was written or co-written by David Paich but the songs are tougher and far more dynamic than their previous work. Much of this was due to the enlistment of renowned British co-producer Geoff Workman who provided a raw, heavy sound.

Genesis vs. Stiltskin: 20 Years & More was captured live on tape and video for Radio Trojka (Warsaw) in 2013 and finds Ray performing with his band, accompanied by a five piece brass and string Ensemble. This performance was a celebration of Ray's diverse musical career which has spanned over 20 years.

WILSON, RAY - Up Close & Personal-Live At Swr1 UK $35.95

BEARNS, ROBERT / DEXTER, RON - Best Of The Golden Voyage $16.98
Before New Age existed as a genre, Robert Bearns and Ron Dexter began creating their GOLDEN VOYAGE series of albums in the 1970s to help listeners cross over the rainbow bridge and awaken an all new fourth dimensional horizon. The fathers of the New Age, Bearns and Dexter blended New Age spirituality, space music themes, primitive synthesizers, beautiful music melodies, environmental sounds, wind chimes, and traditional instruments into what they called a galactic exploration through celestial harmonics. Books and magazines on energy medicine, guided imagery, stress reduction, and music therapy promoted the therapeutic and meditative value of the GOLDEN VOYAGE albums. The six volumes in the Golden Voyage series, originally released between 1977 and 1987, have been out of print for over 25 years. Now, Real Gone Music is pleased to present the first-ever anthology of THE GOLDEN VOYAGE, offering a full-length, 79-minute collection of the best instrumental recordings from Bearn’s and Dexter's pioneering series.

BLOOMFIELD, MICHAEL - Between The Hard Place & The Ground & More $13.98
Digitally remastered reissue of this compilation from the guitar great. Despite a few high-profile '70s outings, Michael Bloomfield had no interest in living up to the unseemly mythology surrounding his guitar-hero past, whether with the Paul Butterfield Blues Band, Bob Dylan's Highway 61 recording sessions, the Electric Flag, or his collaboration with Al Kooper and Stephen Stills' Super Session. And he'd had it with the dog and pony show of the music biz. A liberating, raucous, to-hell -with-all-expectations vibe permeates the live 1979 HARD PLACE sessions - music played without guile, simply for the sheer joy of it. Still, Bloomfield struggled with bottling that kind of fervor in the studio. Raw and unfocused, CRUISIN' FOR A BRUISIN (recorded 1980), discounting posthumous releases, was Bloomfield's studio swansong.

BLUE NILE - Peace At Last DLX $29.98
Scottish pop-soul perfectionists The Blue Nile (Paul Buchanan, Robert Bell and Paul Joseph Moore) present a remastered version of their 1996 album PEACE AT LAST on the Virgin EMI label via UMC. Formed after graduating from Glasgow University in the early 1980's by guitarist Paul Buchanan, bassist Robert Bell and keyboard player Paul Joseph Moore, The Blue Nile have released four albums - A WALK ACROSS THE ROOFTOPS (1984), HATS (1989), PEACE AT LAST (1996) and HIGH (2004). PEACE AT LAST has been digitally remastered by Paul Buchanan and Robert Bell alongside the original The Blue Nile engineer Calum Malcolm, and is presented in a special double pack with a bonus CD of rarities.

CLINE, NELS - Macroscope $16.98

Cluster - Apropos Cluster CD $17.98

DAVIS, MILES - Miles Live At The Fillmore: Miles Davis 1970 $44.98
This four CD set presents four nights of historic performances at the legendary Fillmore East in New York. Presented in their complete unedited form for the first time, MILES LIVE AT THE FILLMORE : 1970 captures a moment in time and tells a compelling story through its electrifying music, images and cultural impact!

DAVIS, MILES - Take Off: The Complete Blue Note Albums $29.98

DEVO - Something Else For Everybody $12.98
Devo needs no introduction, but this release may. SOMETHING ELSE FOR EVERYBODY is a compilation of early Devo demos and focus group rejects written between 2006 to 2009. In the words of founding member Gerald Casale, ''They were relegated to Bin 86 for various inexplicable reasons. You sniffed the wheat in 2010, now lick the chaff aged to perfection.'' Included in this compilation is ''Monsterman, '' which was previously featured on the Syfy Network series ''Monster Man'' in an episode revolving around the video shoot for this song.

DIO - Live In London Hammersmith Apollo 1993 $16.98
Filmed at London's Hammersmith Apollo on 12th December 1993 this previously unreleased concert film captures the then newly reformed Dio on the last night of their European tour in support of the STRANGE HIGHWAYS album in high definition. With a line-up of Ronnie James Dio (vocals), Vinny Appice (drums), Jeff Pilson (bass) and Tracy G (guitar) the band delivered a blistering performance on tracks from their new album, previous Dio classics and favorites from Ronnie's career with Black Sabbath and Rainbow. So take a ride on STRANGE HIGHWAYS and be blown away by one of the greatest rock bands of all time.

George Duke - Rendezvous (Expanded Edition) CD $20.98

DURUTTI COLUMN - Return Of The Durutti Column $19.98
Digitally remastered and expanded edition of this 1980 album from British guitarist Vini Reilly AKA The Durutti Column. While still a live fixture at Factory's Hacienda club, Reilly entered the studio with legendary producer Martin Hannett to work on a spontaneous, organic recording that would become the Durutti Column's classic debut LP. The album was comprised of gentle guitar instrumentals incorporating jazz, folk and classical touches, and sounded unlike anything produced by other post-punk bands of the time. Though its music defies categorization, THE RETURN OF THE DURUTTI COLUMN has a lasting allure. Reilly explains the reason himself: ''In the end, I don't know if it's good music or bad music or indifferent music.... it's the truth, and it's honest. All I've ever tried to do is be truthful.''

EDGUY - Space Police $16.98
After more than two million records sold worldwide with a usual entry in the Top-10 album charts and sold out headlining tours in 39 countries, Edguy are back with a vengeance with their tenth studio album SPACE POLICE. Never trying to live up to expectations of the music industry, Germany's most successful nineties born Heavy Metal act, paved their way by designing their own cosmos.

ENO, BRIAN & HYDE - Someday World $14.98
Eno, Brian & Hyde - Someday World 2PC Special Edition CD $22.98

Following his 2013 Grammy nominated album LUX, Brian Eno produced this new album with 20 year old Fred Gibson, and continues an ongoing collaboration between Hyde & Eno which sees the two together on a complete album for the first time. ''I had a big collection of 'beginnings' sitting around waiting for something to galvanise them into life, to make them more than just 'experiments'. That something turned out to be Karl Hyde.'' -Brian Eno

FRIEDMAN, MARTY - Inferno $14.98
Few guitar virtuosi are as respected and revered as Marty Friedman. After first rising to prominence in the influential band Cacophony and via his well received solo debut DRAGON'S KISS, Friedman joined Megadeth, with whom he soon wrote and recorded the thrash landmark RUST IN PEACE. His 10-year tenure with the iconic group - during which they sold more than 10 million albums worldwide and earned multiple Grammy nominations - saw Friedman's unique sonic contributions become heavy metal DNA that to this day continues to inspire new generations of fans. Now, Friedman triumphantly returns with INFERNO, his first solo album of original material in four years, and his first recording in more than a dance that will be release worldwide simultaneously.

GABRIEL, PETER - Hits $15.98

GLASS / DAVIES - Sym1 Low $19.98

GRATEFUL DEAD - Dick's Picks 18: Dane County Coliseum Madison Wi $48.98
Official reissue of this three CD live set. Grateful Dead fans are by a nature an enthusiastic lot, but their reactions to the original release of this DICK'S PICK, the first to feature music from a 1978 show, were ecstatic even by their standards, with some long-time Deadheads labeling it the best concert in their collection (and that designation included both official and unofficial recordings)! Sparking the critical hosannas was the truly revelatory 'Scarlet Begonias'/'Fire on the Mountain' pairing from the Cedar Falls show (this set actually contains excerpts from three shows: the 2/3/78 Madison show, an uncredited 2/4/78 Milwaukee show and the 2/5/78 Cedar Falls date), but 'The Other One' from Cedar Rapids is easily one of the most intense versions extant, and the 'Estimated Prophet'/'Eyes of the World'/'Playing in the Band'/'The Wheel'/'Playing in the Band' medley from Madison presents the band at their seamless, exploratory best. Out of print for years and a good place to start for the newly initiated.

GRATEFUL DEAD - Dick's Picks 19: 10/19/73 Oklahoma City Fairground $48.98
3-CD live set from the Grateful Dead. The first full 1973 concert to be released, and the first concert of their uniformly excellent Fall 1973 Midwest tour, DICK'S PICKS VOL. 19 captures the Dead a matter of days after the release of WAKE OF THE FLOOD, the first release on their own Grateful Dead Records label, and over half the tracks from the album appear here, highlighted by stellar (no pun intended) renditions of ''Stella Blue'' and ''Eyes of the World.'' Both of those songs appear as the first encore on Disc Three, which may well be one of the finest single discs in the entire DICK'S PICKS canon; the disc leads off with a 15-minute ''Dark Star'' which segues effortlessly to ''Mind Left Body Jam'' leading into a truly transcendent reading of ''Morning Dew.'' Add ''Sugar Magnolia'' and a showending ''Johnny B. Goode'' to the set and you know everybody went home happy. A superb sound mix on this one, too, and as always it's presented in HDCD sound. Out of print for years!

MEREDITH MONK - Piano Songs $18.98
Celebrating Meredith Monk as composer, these PIANO SONGS give us a world at once playful and earnest. Written or derived from work composed between 1971 and 2006, the pieces inhabit Monk's unique universe, as played by two of new music's most distinguished interpreters, pianists Ursula Oppens and Bruce Brubaker. These pieces are 'songs' because they have strong roots in Monk's pieces for voice, and because they are direct, specific, and imagistic. Meredith Monk on composing for two pianos: ''I delved into different relationships and possibilities between them; material passed back and forth, dialogues, interlocking phrases, shifts of figure and ground. In some pieces, I emphasized the individuality of each piano, writing for one player as the 'singer', the other as the 'accompaniment'; in other pieces I wanted the two pianos to make one large sound.''

Oz Noy - Twisted Blues Vol 2 CD $15.98

PORKY'S REVENGE - O.S.T. $14.98

Featuring: Dave Edmunds, Jeff Beck, George Harrison, The Fabulous Thunderbirds, Carl Perkins with Slim Jim Phantom & Lee Rocker, Clarence Clemons, Willie Nelson, and The Crawling King Snakes (Robert Plant, Paul Martinez, Phil Collins with Dave Edmunds). If there's an award for third-rate sequel with a first class Soundtrack, 1985's teen sex romp PORKY'S REVENGE remains a perennial contender. While it grossed a fraction of the original PORKY'S (itself inspired by true events in the '50s high school life of writer-director Bob Clark), its Dave Edmunds produced songs (the franchise's first soundtrack release) became a landmark in the '80s roots-rock boom spawned by the Punk-New Wave explosion.

SHARP, ELLIOTT / TERRAPLANE - 4am Always $16.98

Schwalm / Eno / Aarset / Schutze - Wagner Transformed CD $16.98
In 2013, the world celebrated Wagner s 200th birthday. As godfather of the cross-genre work of art, he revolutionized the direction of theatre and operas into a modern multimedia experience. If Wagner were around today, how would he use the technical possibilities of modern studio technology and to what extent would he once again break away from conventions? In this new project, Wagner's music is not retold but newly told, transporting his feeling for melody and dynamics into the modern age. J. Peter Schwalm, the artistic initiator of this project, belongs to the most versatile exponents of contemporary electronic music. His first experimental electro-jazz project begat a cooperation with Brian Eno, which has continued throughout the years.

VANILLA FUDGE - Complete Atco Singles RMST $15.98
Vanilla Fudge are on the short list of the heaviest bands ever to hit the charts, which they did eight times. They are also quite possibly the greatest cover band of all time, with their version of the Supremes' ''You Keep Me Hangin' On'' easily among the most inventive covers ever recorded. And they are the missing link between psychedelia and heavy metal.

Various Artists - MANY FACES OF DEEP PURPLE (3PC, Boxed Set) $22.98

WAKEMAN, RICK - White Rock $14.98
With the memories of the Sochi Winter Olympics still fresh in our minds, it seemed the perfect time to reissue WHITE ROCK, the soundtrack that Yes keyboardist Rick Wakeman composed for Tony Maylam's documentary about the 1976 Winter Olympic games in Innsbruck, Austria (Maylam directed a Genesis concert film around that time, too, and the two films played as a well-received double feature in the U.K.). The genius of Wakeman's music is such that you don't necessarily need to see the film to enjoy the soundtrack or, for that matter, to figure out what Olympic images each composition accompanied, but for those keeping score, the ski jump, luge, downhill skiing, ice hockey and figure skating events were all the lucky recipients of the composer's interpretation. And for fans of vintage keyboard sounds, this 1977 album is a treasure trove, with the moog, clavinet, mellotron, Hammond organ and Fender Rhodes all prominently featured. First time on CD in America, with liner notes by Gene Sculatti and added photos - this one definitely belongs on the podium with Wakeman's other solo releases!

In 1991 he established himself as a successful solo artist and remains a respected singer, lyricist and guitarist. By the mid-'90s, he had released three successful albums that were both critically acclaimed and massively popular in England, where contemporary bands like Ocean Colour Scene were citing him as an influence. Just as importantly, many observers, while occasionally criticizing the trad rock nature of his music, acknowledged that Weller was one of the few rock veterans who had managed to stay vital within the second decade of his career.
