Peter Hammill/Patience ....import vinyl LP $34.99
The follow up release to Peter Hammill's '80s solo work 'Enter K,' Madfish re-issue 'Patience,' recorded with the K Group following his split from the Van der Graaf Generator art rock band. Originally released in 1983, the record reached #15 in the UK Indie album charts. Hammill was known for covering dark motifs with his lyrics, which, along with his 34 solo studio albums and progressive work with the popular Van der Graaf Generator band, this led to him receiving the first ever Visionary Award in the Prog Awards 2012, and to collecting the Lifetime Achievement Award in 2016 alongside Van Der Graaf Generator bandmates. A founding member and primary song-writer for Van der Graaf Generator, Hammill's vocals have been a distinctive part of the Prog genre from 1967 to the Post-Prog output of the 2000s. Peter Hammill performed with the K group in the early 80s, following Van der Graaf's second split, writing more songbased, punchy new-wave rock. Originally set up as a touring band for Peter Hammill's solo work, Hammill brought material to the studio, where the band gave fresh and energetic backing to Hammill's philosophical lyrics.

"We took the whole as a normal show. We were in the middle of the tour. Upfront, we had quite re-arranged the songs so they were playable by a rock quartet. When I'm asked about my thoughts on this specific event there lays a veil over my memory somehow. There are only two things that I remember exactly: First, I recollect the unbelievable professionality of the Rockpalast team; second, in a bar next to our hotel I wrote the song Happy Hour which was on the first K Group studio release." - Peter Hammill 2016. Songs include: The Future Now, Losing Faith in Words, Stranger Still, Sign, My Experience, Modern, The Second Hand, Sitting Targets, The Sphinx in the Face, Flight, Central Hotel, The Spirit, Door, My Room

King Crimson/Great Deceiver: Live 1973-1974 ....4 CD Boxed Set $54.99
The Great Deceiver is a live 4CD box set by the band King Crimson, released on Virgin Records in 1992. In 2007, it was reissued as two volumes of 2 CDs each. The track listing on the volume 1 CD 1 lists 11 tracks, incorrectly listing The Talking Drum and the abbreviated "Larks' Tongues in Aspic, Part Two" from the Pittsburgh show from CD 1 of the volume 2 set. - The box set features live recordings of the band from 1973 and 1974. All recordings feature the lineup of Robert Fripp, John Wetton, David Cross and Bill Bruford. Jamie Muir, who left the band in early 1973, is not featured on the set. The band's 1974 concert from Providence, Rhode Island is presented in it's entirety on CDs One and Two; this was the second-to-last live concert ever performed by this incarnation of King Crimson. - Many of the recordings on this album are band improvisations. "The Law of Maximum Distress" appears in two sections, as the tape ran out in the middle of the song. Much of the missing material seems to be used on "The Mincer" from Starless and Bible Black. As Robert Fripp notes in the CD jacket, "Most live recording follows the policy of two machines in use simultaneously to meet an eventuality such as this. We learn."
King Crimson/Radical Action to Unseat the Hold of Monkey Mind ....3CD + Blu-Ray Box Set $39.99
"This is King Crimson... re-imagined" - Robert Fripp, June 2016.
It has been stated many times that King Crimson is not so much a band as it is "a way
of doing things." Less frequently stated but equally true, is the fact that the band
inevitably seeks different ways of doing things. The current incarnation of the band, 2014
- the present day, has already released two taster sets in the form of 2015's Live at the
Orpheum mini-album and the vinyl picture disc EP that accompanied the 2015 tours of Canada
and Japan, while the full raw concert performance from a single night in Toronto in 2015
was presented as a 2CD set earlier this year to great acclaim. Now, with the release of
Radical Action comes the most fully realised audio and visual statement from this band to
date, running to three themed CDs and a Blu-Ray disc offering the filmed content along
with an audio only option in lossless high resolution stereo and surround sound. The
set includes at least one performance of every song/piece of music played by King Crimson
in 2015, some pieces originally composed in 1969 the year of the band's inception, others
composed/initially performed at a variety of points since, some new to the tour, all
arranged for this specific line-up. Indeed it is characteristic of this King Crimson - in
direct contrast to all other post 1970s line-ups - to feature a broad range of material
from the 1969 - 1974 era, performed in such a manner as to maintain much of what made the
music so arresting when first issued, while arranged for fresh interpretation by the seven
piece line-up of today. As Fripp put it (when asked what the title of the album
meant to him): "What I like about this band is, that what it is actually doing is not
what it appears to be doing...." The idea of King Crimson re-imagined, that the music
as presented is new, irrespective of when originally composed, is the key element in this
band's makeup. The set will be released to coincide with King Crimson's most
extensive European tour since 1974, with performances slated to include, for the first
time ever, material from all seven of King Crimson's 1969 - 1974 iconic studio albums.
Audio: Three themed CDs of material recorded in 2015, each forming a separate discrete performance with audio selected from a variety of shows and fully mixed from multi-track tapes by Chris Porter, Robert Fripp and David Singleton. As no audience is audible between tracks, this allows for a "virtual studio album" effect. (The current King Crimson line-up was deliberately conceived as a performing band rather than as a band concerned with making full studio recordings). Video: Among the problems most associated with filming live performance, perhaps the key problems are those of the film-makers' cameras intruding on the audience's capacity to enjoy the show without interruption and the intrusion of the cameras on the band's performance. In effect, both performance and audience response must be misrepresented to approximate a live show for later consumption. In order to record the performances more accurately, a series of Japanese concerts was captured via a number of discreet cameras in a "video verite" style - with neither band nor audience disturbed by filming - by Trevor Wilkins who also edited and assembled the footage. Audio/Video: Blu-Ray features the concert film in high-resolution [24/48] stereo and 5.1 surround sound with additional video off' mode allowing for high-resolution audio only playback in stereo and surround sound. In essence the music can be experienced in a number of different ways - as continuous uninterrupted audio on CD, as a viewable concert performance in stereo or 5.1 surround, or in high-resolution, lossless audio stereo or 5.1 surround without pictures on the Blu-Ray. Presentation: 2 x gatefold mini-vinyl style card sleeves containing the 4 discs plus booklet containing photos and audio notes housed in an exterior slip case.

All material featured on both these CD/DVD-A sets will also appear on a forthcoming box chronicling King Crimson's 1980s material. The two sets are slated for a mid-October release. At this time there is no info on the pricing, contents and release date of the '80s big box set.
Alan Parsons Project/I Robot ....Hybrid SACD $29.99
Alan Parsons Project I Robot on numbered limited edition Hybrid SACD from Mobile Fidelity! Audiophiles needn't any introduction to the Alan Parsons Project's I Robot. Engineered by Parsons after he performed the same duties on Pink Floyd's Dark Side of the Moon, the 1977 record reigns as a disc whose taut bass, crisp highs, clean production, and seemingly limitless dynamic range are matched only by the sensational prog-rock fare helmed by the keyboardist. Not surprisingly, it's been issued myriad times. Can it be improved? Relish Mobile Fidelity's stupendous sounding hybrid SACD and the question becomes irrelevant. Mastered from the original master tapes, I Robot comes to life like never before on this numbered limited-edition reissue.

Put simply, there's more music, more information, more detail, more nuance, more everything.

Blackfield V [Deluxe Mediabook Edition] ....import CD + Blu-Ray $18.99
Blackfield/V ....import double vinyl LP $35.99
Blackfield V sees the duo of Steven Wilson & Aviv Geffen return to full collaborative mode! Blackfield is the collaboration between Israeli songwriter and musician Aviv Geffen and British musician and producer Steven Wilson. Blackfield V sees a return to the full partnership that made the first two albums such firm favourites with fans hinted at by the reprisal of the medicine bottle in the artwork from their first album. The pair makes for a formidable musical force; Geffen has worked with legendary producers Tony Visconti and Trevor Horn, has played live with U2 and Placebo, and is currently a judge on the Israeli TV show The Voice. Wilson, after a long tenure as the leader of the hugely influential band Porcupine Tree, has since embarked on a highly successful solo career achieving three UK top 40 albums and four Grammy nominations. Written and recorded over a period of 18 months in both Israel and England, Blackfield V contains 13 linked songs that form a flowing 45 minute ocean themed song cycle. With the pair expertly handling vocals, guitars and keyboards, they brought in Tomer Z from the Blackfield band on drums, Eran Mitelman on keys and string arrangements were performed by the London Session Orchestra. Blackfield V is a powerful journey through catchy melodies, lush arrangements and a stunning production with legendary producer/engeneer Alan Parsons working on three of the album's key tracks. Both musicians consider Blackfield V to be their best collaboration to date. The album will be released on three formats: CD Digipack, 2LP heavyweight 180g vinyl presented in single packaging with a four page booklet and a free mp3 download; and CD + Blu-Ray presented in a deluxe media book. The Blu-Ray offers audiophiles a listening experience second to none with the album in high resolution stereo and 5.1 surround sound.
The Pineapple Thief/Little Man ....import CD $12.99
Formed in 1999 by founder and chief songwriter Bruce Soord, The Pineapple Thief have continued to evolve and refine their sound ever since and they're seen by many as one of the most interesting and innovative rock bands the UK have produced in recent years. While the earlier releases, along with 2008's 'Tightly Unwound,' were many people's introduction to the band, they had actually spent the previous ten years quietly building up a dedicated fan base across the globe, selling over 25,000 records and nurturing their 'bittersweet' progressive sound. 'Little Man,' the band's fifth album, was originally released in 2006. The album has been re-mastered by The Pineapple Thief's Bruce Soord and is presented on CD in a digpack with a 4 page colour booklet as part of the Kscope mid price campaign. 'Little Man' is an astounding, emotional, atmospheric and satisfying piece of art, and should be essential for any avid prog fan. The Pineapple Thief are currently promoting their new studio album, the follow up to 2014's 'Magnolia,' entitled' Your Wilderness'.
The Pineapple Thief/Someone Here Is Missing ....import CD $12.99
Albums like 'Someone Here Is Missing' (2010); 'Show a Little Love' EP and 'All the Wars' (2012) have made Pineapple Thief's reputation and fan base stronger. Starting to gather interest from a wider spectrum of alternative rock followers only enhanced with the release of 'Magnolia' in 2014, they are described by The Guardian (UK) as "The perfect blend of brains, brawn, beauty and exquisite songwriting...a modern rock masterpiece;" and this year's new studio album 'Your Wilderness,' featuring guest musicians Gavin Harrison (Porcupine Tree) & John Helliwell (Supertramp) is already receiving rave reviews in the press "An outstanding and astonishingly refreshing release' Powerplay Magazine (UK). Someone Here Is Missing has been re-mastered by Bruce Soord and is presented on CD in a digpack with a 4 page colour booklet as part of the Kscope mid price campaign. "Elements of Rush, Muse and Porcupine Tree meld in a blast of how prog should sound." ~ CLASSIC ROCK (UK)
Porcupine Tree/Octane Twisted [Japanese Edition] ....import double CD + DVD $16.99
KScope reissue the mid-price three disc Japanese export edition set from Porcupine Tree featuring The Incident live on CD & bonus DVD. Porcupine Tree released 'The Incident' in 2009 and followed this with a lengthy tour before entering a hiatus period which allowed the members time to work on their various solo careers and other collaborations. 'The Incident' went top 30 in both the UK and USA, and the world tour climaxed with sold out shows at Royal Albert Hall in London and Radio City Music Hall in New York. The album marked another step forward in the incredible journey of the band from a solo studio project created by Steven Wilson in the late eighties to a multi grammy nominated act and one of the world's most revered live bands, selling out arenas across the globe and wowing fans with their incredible performances and are regarded as one of the most impressive experimental/ progressive/ psychedelic rock bands to emerge from the UK since their inception in 1991, having enjoyed a successful recording career spanning over 15 years.
The Pineapple Thief/Variations on a Dream ....import CD $12.99
'Variations on a Dream' was the band's third studio album and was originally released in 2004 on the Cyclops label.

Crippled Black Phoenix/I Vigilante ....import CD $12.99
U.K. progressive post-rock supergroup Crippled Black Phoenix is a musical collective that has featured nearly 30 members in its rotating roster. The constant driving force is multi- instrumentalist Justin Greaves (Electric Wizard, Iron Monkey Se Delan), who formed the band in 2004 with Mogwai bassist Dominic Aitchison. Creating what they describe as "endtime ballads" to signify both the slightly macabre nature of their songs and the unusual blend of styles as the final evolution in music. The band have made live shows a focus by performing in unusual venues across the world as well as using Victorian-era instruments in tandem with more modern instruments, often involving more than a dozen members onstage. In 2006, Crippled Black Phoenix released their first album, 'A Love of Shared Disasters,' which will be re-issued on mid-price CD to follow the 'I Vigilante' re-issue. Originally released in 2010 on Invada Records, their fourth album 'I Vigilante' is a record of uncompromising soundscapes that garnered the band & album widespread critical acclaim within the media worldwide. 2012 saw the more conceptual studio album, '(Mankind) The Crafty Ape' and their seventh and most recent album is 'White Light Generator' from 2014. The band continued with two European tours that reached a summit in April 2016 at London's famed venue Electric Brixton.

Dalis Car/Ingladaloneness ....import CD $11.99
CD release of the highly sought after Ingladaloneness EP from Dalis Car. Dalis Car, formed in 1984 by Bauhaus' Peter Murphy (vocalist), Japan's Mick Karn (bassist, keyboardist, guitarist, saxophonist) and Paul Vincent Lawford (rhythm construction). Initially, they recorded one album, 'The Waking Hour' in 1984. In August 2010, Peter Murphy announced that he and Karn were planning on re-forming Dalis Car to record a second album, the project was cut short, as Karn had recently been diagnosed with cancer and passed away in the following January. The tracks they did record in that brief reunion included a re-working of 'Artemis' from 'The Waking Hour' with newly added vocals, guitar, and drums, and renamed 'Artemis Rise;' and were released in April 2012 as an EP entitled 'InGladAloneness.' The EP begins with the life-affirming 'King Cloud' and 'Sound Cloud' driven by Karn's dense and compelling bass and bassoon patterns and Murphy's singular voice, the songs contain lyrics that emotionally echo Murphy's response to Karn's condition and suggest musical directions the project might have pursued had it continued as a creative concern. Along with the inventively multi-layered re-imagining of 'Artemis,' these pieces operate as the rhythmically propelled spiritual storm before the glacial calm of the two closing numbers. The Arvo Part meets Turkish chant lament of 'Subhanallah' and - prefaced by a mournful Karn instrumental - the deeply personal reading of Jaques Brel's classic 'If You Go Away' (a favourite song of Karn's), provide a moving conclusion to a poignant final statement. The EP also features Karn's Japan bandmate Steve Jansen on drums and original Dalis Car drummer Paul Lawford on congas; and was mixed by Steve Jansen, mastered by Pieter Snaper in Istanbul, with artwork created by Murphy, Thomas Bak with a painting by Jaroslaw Kukowski. Kscope are re-releasing this highly sought after EP on CD with original cover artwork and will be presented in a digipack sleeve.
Mick Karn/Each Eye a Path ....import CD $12.99
KScope release the fifth solo album from bass pioneer Mick Karn (Japan) on CD. Originally released in 2001 on Medium Productions (Karn's joint venture with ex Japan colleagues Steve Jansen and Richard Barbieri), this powerfully inventive album featured Karn on vocals and a variety of exotic instruments. Steve Jansen (who mixed the album) adds some typically tasteful drum and percussion parts. This uniquely adventurous and evocative album - written and arranged between 1995 and 1999 - is minimal in terms of instrumentation, but extremely rich as regards the density of the playing and the quality of ideas on offer. An album of mood swings - mixing darkness and light, melancholy and hope 'Each Eye a Path' showcases Mick Karn at his most intimate and unfettered.
Mick Karn/The Concrete Twin ....import CD $12.99
Kscope are set to release 'The Concrete Twin' from Mick Karn, former bassist with Japan/Rain Tree Crow/Dalis Car. 'The Concrete Twin' was the last solo album from ex-Japan member Mick Karn, originally released on his own MK Music label in 2009. The follow on from 2006's 'Three Part Species,' 'The Concrete Twin' showcases an engaging performance with dazzling musicianship and a commercial know how that elevates it beyond your standard left-field art-rock. Here, Karn produced a more organic sound than some of his previous work. Assisted only by drummer Pete Lockett, Karn plays everything else on the album, including, for the first time since the early '80s, the ocarina. 'The Concrete Twin' is a densely complex but richly rewarding album touching on jazz, swing and drum'n'bass with synth waves that sound surreal, distort, morose and instrumental tracks that morph and expire eerily.
Mick Karn/More Better Different ....import CD $11.99
Kscope are set to release 'More Better Different' from Mick Karn, former bassist with Japan, Rain Tree Crow, and Dalis Car. More Better Different is Karn's sixth album and was originally released on Invisible Hands in 2004. 'More Better Different' sees Karn melding guitars, clarinet, samples and spoken word in nine mood pieces which swing from winningly funky "The Jump;" cinematic noodling on "The End Gag" to the wah guitar and '80s sci-fi soundtrack on 'Atyan B-Boot.' Each track carefully sculpted to produce deep atmospheric soundscapes that fans of Eno, Sylvian, Talk Talk or Radiohead will find transporting and beautifully optimistic. Kscope will be releasing More Better Different on CD presented in a digipack
Mick Karn/Three Part Species ....import CD $15.99
Kscope are set to release 'Three Part Species' from Mick Karn, former bassist with Japan/Rain Tree Crow/Dalis Car. 'Three Part Species' is the seventh album from ex-Japan member Mick Karn, originally released on his own MK Music label in 2006. Here, he blends elements of electronica, hiphop, jazz, world music and pop. Highlights include the Harold Budd-like piano/ambience of 'Floating Home' and 'Chocolate was a Boy' or the convincing Middle Eastern drawl of 'Pitta Pop.' 'Three Part Species' illustrates more than any other, how completely in command of musical composition Mick Karn was, with the blending of so many diverse types of music that never sound confused in direction. It's impossible with each piece to predict which genre will come next, as the listener is guided through Mick Karn's unique world.
Gazpacho/Bravo ....import CD $12.99
In 2002 Gazpacho entered a song contest on Make-A-Star with the song "Sea of Tranquility" and won. Their second entry, "Ghost" made it to second position, giving the band the opportunity to release an album through MP3.com. This led the band to release their first official album Bravo in 2003 - which contained five of the six tracks off the MP3.com album plus six new compositions. Utilizing the possibilities of the Internet the band had teamed up with the American singer/songwriter and fellow Make-A-Star contestee Esther Valentine, and New Zealand producer Peter Kearns. Valentine sang a duet with Ohme on the song Novgorod (which she also co-wrote) and Kearns produced two of the album tracks. 'Bravo' gained the band more international acclaim, with Dutch leading music magazine Oor stating "their debut album is a rare beauty." Kscope are releasing the 10 track album 'Bravo' on CD presented in a digipack.
Gazpacho/When Earth Lets Go ....import CD $12.99

Gazpacho/Firebird ....import CD $12.99
Gazpacho's third album 'Firebird,' originally released in 2005 through Marillion's Racket Records label, saw the band stay faithful to melancholy-filled artistic music with it's somewhat serious themes. The support of Marillion also led to the collaboration with guitarist Steve Rothery who plays a solo on the track 'Do You Know What You Are Saying?' Other guest appearances on the album came in the form of fans who had been encouraged to send in sound samples which the band would use. Among the unusual instruments featured on the album are maracas, a comb and a Leopard II battle tank. The 11 track album, 'Firebird,' is being released via Kscope on CD and will be presented in a digipack.
Sweet Billy Pilgrim/Twice Born Men ....import CD $12.99
2015 saw the UK's unsung heroes of experimental art rock London based Sweet Billy Pilgrim, join the Kscope roster and release their label debut & fourth album 'Motorcade Amnesiacs' to critical media acclaim. Following on from the release of 'Motorcade Amnesiacs,' Kscope began the re-release campaign for the band's earlier albums with their 2005 debut 'We Just Did What Happened and No One Came,' Next is the band's 2009 Mercury Prize Nominated album 'Twice Born Men.' The 2016 CD version of 'Twice Born Men' has been remastered by Sweet Billy Pilgrim's Tim Elsenburg and Francis Kimberley (Hungry Bear Mastering), features 3 exclusive bonus tracks including 'Broken Down Procession' (a collaboration with Adem, taken from BBC Radio 3's Late Junction) & 'In The Flesh?' (Pink Floyd cover). The album has brand new cover artwork and also features sleeve notes written by current vocalist Jana Carpenter. The CD will be presented in a digipack with 4 page colour booklet featuring lyrics. The trio - Tim Elsenburg ( singing, guitar, producer, mixing), Anthony Bishop (banjo, bass) and Alistair Hamer (sequencing, drums) caused quite a stir with their, navigating the delicate path between self-referential art rock and melodic folk rock; their follow up in 2009 'Twice Born Men,' originally released on David Sylvian's Samadhi Sound label, saw the Sunday Times awarding it 5 Stars and CD of the Week as well as an inclusion in their Top 100 Albums of 2009. 'Twice Born Men' is at heart a melodic beast complimented by the exquisite swooning shiver of Elsenburg's vocal, ultimately, a beautiful album, which will appeal to fans of alt country and art-pop and should also be appreciated by lovers of great music everywhere.
The Anchoress/Confessions of a Romance Novelist ....import CD $14.99
Garnering comparisons to John Grant and Lana Del Rey, The Anchoress's concept driven compositions have been the talk of the music press in 2016. Prog Magazine - who've nominated her for best-newcomer at their awards - went as far as proclaiming her debut album as ."..Kate Bush's 'Hounds of Love' updated for the 21st century." Multi-instrumentalist, songwriter, PhD & producer Catherine Anne Davies (who also plays in the live line-up of Simple Minds) sums up her album's overall concept as, "Partly a concept album narrated by the titular potboiler author, partly a series of imaginary character pieces, and partly a deeply personal outpouring from someone who's been through a fair amount of personal hell." Whichever way you choose to describe The Anchoress' compelling debut 'Confessions of a Romance Novelist' (co-produced by Mansun's frontman Paul Draper) one thing's for certain, this is something truly different.

TesseracT/Polaris + Errai ....double CD $15.99
TesseracT vocalist Dan Tompkins comments: "It's been fantastic to re-visit & re-work the vocals to some of the Polaris tracks from a different angle and with the benefit of time and space. The normal process of writing TesseracT songs starts with the creation of the music followed by the lyrical content; this time Acle and Aidan have stripped away the music and re-created the songs based around the vocals. As a result this has allowed much more breathing space between both and also highlighted much more detail in the performance." Kscope will be releasing a 2 disc edition of TesseracT's critically acclaimed 2015 studio album 'Polaris.' The new 2016 edition of 'Polaris' will be released with a bonus second disc 'Errai' which features four re-worked tracks from 'Polaris' - "Survival," "Cages," "Tourniquet" and "Seven Names." The tracks have been re-imagined by the band's long time live producer and sound engineer Aidan O'Brien. The release will be supported with the launch of a new promotional video for the 'Polaris' track "Hexes," directed by George Laycock (Nordic Giants). After the phenomenal success of their own headline tour in support of 'Polaris,' TesseracT have confirmed they will be returning to North America as main support to Gojira between 21st September & 23rd October. Over the summer TesseracT will be appearing at various European festivals. 'Polaris / Errai' will be released as a 2 CD set presented in a digi-pack with a 4 page colour booklet.

Richard Pinhas, the founder of '70s legends Heldon is one of France's best known experimental musicians. He is a key figure in the development of rock fusing with electronic music. Cuneiform is simultaneously releasing two new, very different albums by Richard in conjuction with a US tour. Mu is a collaboration between Richard and noted guitarist and writer Barry Cleveland who has worked with many other artists in the field of ambient and experimental guitar. Barry was also an editor at Guitar Player Magazine for over a decade. Michael Manring is best known for his many-year collaboration with the late guitar genius Michael Hedges, but he has also worked with with players like Wadada Leo Smith, Attention Deficit, Spastic Ink, Henry Kaiser, Will Ackerman, Holy Near a.o. Celso Alberti is a Brazilian-born percussionist who has worked with many A-list musicians over the years, most recently working closely with Steve Winwood. This is a trancy, grooving work that is RIYL: Jon Hassell, King Crimson, Brian Eno, etc. Process and Reality is a collaboration between Richard and two innovators and giants of the current Japanese experimental scene. Tatsuya Yoshida has been one of the most important musicians of the Japanese experimental scene for the last 35 years, spearheading at least a half dozen of that country's most important groups, including Ruins, Koeji Hyakkei, YBO2 and Korekyojinn. Masami Akita, aka Merzbow, stands as probably the most important artist in noise music and has been so for nearly 40 years and hundreds of releases. From the beginning, his harsh sounds eschewed the anger often found in this music to reach a Zen state, a calm inside the storm. This is the first time these three musicians have all collaborated together.

Santana/Santana IV ....CD $13.99
2016 release. Santana IV is the 23rd studio album by Santana and the fourth album by almost the entire Woodstock-era classic lineup. The album reunites the early 1970s classic lineup of Carlos Santana, Gregg Rolie, Neal Schon, Mike Carabello and Michael Shrieve and marks the first time in 45 years - since 1971's multi-platinum classic Santana III - that the quintet has recorded together. Joining the core Santana IV band in the studio are current Santana members Karl Perazzo (percussion) and Benny Rietveld (bass), with vocalist Ronald Isley guesting on two cuts. The origins for the reunion go back several years, when Schon suggested that he and Carlos Santana record together. Santana liked the idea but went one better, proposing that they recruit Rolie, Shrieve and Carabello for what would be called Santana IV. After initial writing sessions and rehearsals took place in 2013, the group recorded throughout 2014 and 2015, amassing 16 new tracks that combined all their signature elements - Afro-Latin rhythms, soaring vocals, electrifying blues-psychedelic guitar solos, and irrepressible jubilant percussion work. About the Santana IV team, Santana stated: "It was magical, we didn't have to try to force the vibe - it was immense. From there, we then needed to come up with a balance of songs and jams that people would immediately identify as Santana."

Their self-titled debut album (1978) became a solid success in Canada, yet went big in Germany and with hits like "How Long?," "Humble Stance" and "The Perfectionist," they got noticed all over the world for their original mix of progressive rock, pop and classic rock. "Sagacity" (2014) kept the band's characteristic sound alive while adding a modern touch to their music and made it to Germany's top 20.Their popularity steadily increased and led to a huge loyal fan base in Europe and all over the world, selling an more than 8 million albums to date. As soon as the band walks on stage and the excited roaring of the crowd fills the venue, it becomes crystal clear that Saga still knows how to rock like in their glory days. The euphoric mood of the fans is reflected by the band's sensational performance and sound. By performing a setlist consisting of their most famous songs of almost 40 years of the band's existence, the concert paints an epic picture of one of the great progressive rock bands today.

"Live in Hamburg" recorded on April 28th, 2015 at Fabrik is a must have for every Saga fan.
Alcest/Kodama ....CD $13.99
Alcest/Kodama [Limited Edition] ....double CD $34.99
"Kodama" the fifth album from Blackgaze pioneers, Alcest, marks the French duo's ferocious return to the stylistic maximalism of its early albums while continuing the band's relentless pursuit for new sounds and fresh ideas. "Kodama" is the Japanese word for 'tree spirit' and 'echo' and from the album's structure and dynamics to its cinematic sound, "Kodama" indeed 'echoes' Alcest's 2010 classic, "Ecailles De Lune." But this is no simple back-to-the-roots album: the band has more punch, rhythm and organic feel than ever before. While clearly influenced by bands like The Smashing Pumpkins, Tool, Dinosaur Jr, Grimes and The Cure, "Kodama" ultimately reveals itself as Alcest's 'Japanese album,' drawing substantial inspiration from Japanese art and culture. Originally triggered by Hayao Miyazaki's anime film "Princess Mononoke," "Kodama" picks up on the fate of its protagonist and, at its core, deals with the sensation of not belonging; of living in between worlds, be it city and nature or the physical and spiritual one. Duality is also crucial for the visual approach of the album, realized by French graphic designer duo Fortifem. Paying tribute to Japanese illustrators like Takato Yamamoto, the visuals portray contrasting elements like nature/urbanity, youth/death, femininity/animality and combine poetic elements with darker ones that were not present in Alcest's earlier works. By giving the album a cultural, stylistic and compositional narrative, Neige and Winterhalter keep "Kodama" from just being the latest improvement on the Alcest sound and instead make the album a most rare and exciting thing: a vital, relevant record from a pioneer that not only upholds the band's trailblazing legacy but actually makes you want to see where they go next. "They'll give you rich five-part harmonies one minute, sound like bluegrass on steroids the next, and then rock you over the head with unbearably cool and raucous Celtic rhythms." NO DEPRESSION

Marillion's eighteenth studio album, features 5 tracks - consisting of 17 parts - and the feeling within the band is that it may be their best and most ambitious work ever. F. E. A. R. (f*** everyone and run) sees the band taking on big themes - The New Kings looks at the ravening beast that modern capitalism seems to have evolved into, El Dorado examines the notions of political entitlement and the modern challenges for the UK, and The Leavers examines the impact of a transient life on the road for those constantly waving goodbye. The job is simple, says Hogarth, "We use the amazing privilege of having both a platform and an audience to encourage people to look in the mirror and ask themselves the big questions - by doing just that ourselves."

Along with David Bowie's Last Band (Jason Lindner, Mark Guiliana, Tim Lefebvre and Donny himself), Donny reimagines two Bowie tracks (as well as tracks by Deadmau5 and Mutemath) alongside poweful originals, displaying the rich musicality and innovation that originally led to him joining forces with one of the most creative artists of all time.
Edensong/Years in the Garden of Years ....CD $15.99
Edensong is a progressive rock quintet from New York City. The band's selfreleased 2008 debut The Fruit Fallen was hailed as a "masterpiece" by critics, and helped to pave the way for live shows and notable festival appearances throughout North America.

The concept album features an extended song cycle on themes of time, each song a different scale and perspective. The melodies are more memorable, the riffs more powerful, the flute playing more inventive and propulsive. The songs prominently feature immersive new textures, from lush keyboard and orchestral arrangements to esoteric percussion from around the world, such as hang drum and balinese gamelan. Years in the Garden of Years is mastered with audiophile precision by grammy winning engineer Bob Katz, and the CD release features stunning original cover art and booklet illustrations from beloved surrealist painter Dan May.

Captain Crimson/Remind ....CD $13.98
The Swedish hotbed of Orebro has already produced the likes of Truckfighters, Graveyard, Witchcraft and Blues Pills. Prepare to add Captain Crimson to this exceptional tradition. Formed in 2010 by vocalist Stefan Lillhager, formerly of Blowback, Captain Crimson draws inspiration from the classic sounds of The Groundhogs, Blue Cheer, Emerson Lake & Palmer, Jethro Tull and Cactus, meeting heavy boogie head-on with a modern swagger that has carried over to their latest and third album, Remind - their first for Small Stone Records. Remind follows their 2012 debut, Dancing Madly Backwards, which led them onto their first tour that Fall. Emerging with the lineup of Lillhager singing, bassist/backing vocalist Chris David (ReinXeed), guitarist Andreas Eriksson and drummer/organist Mikael Lath, Captain Crimson earned rave reviews for their blues riffing and killer hooks, and they did what any band worth their salt would: They kept touring. Their second album, 2014's Ageless Time, aligned them to Moving Air Music and Nasoni Records and once again put them on the road. On the LP, they showcased a multifaceted songwriting process, benefiting from the contributions of each player working together to bolster the strengths of the whole, and with a stopgap jam session in Stockholm captured on a 2015 digital EP, they make their way into Remind having fully realized their vision of modern classic rock. Make no mistake: Captain Crimson's latest is nothing less than a testament to the timeless power of groove, of memorable choruses that take you back to when you felt such things deep in your soul, and indeed offer a reminder that you still can and that you still do.
Dan & Deryn Cullen/I Am Cello ....CD $14.99
UK-based husband and wife duo Dan and Deryn Cullen are releasing their debut album, I Am Cello. With a decade of film, TV and game composition behind them, the Cullens have forged a unique and exhilarating sound, defined by Dan's bold, expressive and epic compositional style and Deryn's rich, virtuosic cello playing. Deryn creates extraordinary textures by taking on the role of an entire string section, recording all violin, viola, cello and bass parts on various coveted celli in her broad collection. The result is at once a familar, yet exotic and truly one-of-a-kind sonic experience. I Am Cello draws from the troubled times engulding us, painting a musical world of light and dark, weeping over that which divides us and celebrating that which unites us. It is a master work quite unlike any other. Deryn's exquisite cello ensemble give Dan's dramatic orchestration the life and dynamics it deserves; a magnificent live choir recorded in LA accentuates the epic emotion; and Emmy award-winning epic music producer Yoav Goren's creative direction and lush three-dimensional mixes elevate each track to astonishing heights. The result is a musical experience that will evoke passion, tears and joy - sometimes all at once - and will have you reaching for the repeat button.

Betts, Dickey - Live At The Coffee Pot 1983 Music DVD $17.99
After the Allman Brothers split up in 1982, Dickey Betts formed a new band, recruiting the soulful vocalist and sax player from Wet Willie, Jimmy Hall as co-leader. They also got fellow ABB members Chuck Leavell, David Goldflies, and Butch Trucks to join, forming the Betts, Hall, Leavell, and Trucks Band (aka BHLT). The band never recorded an album, but their live shows were legendary. The repertoire includes Betts work in the ABB, Jimmy Hall's solo material and classic Wet Willie and several choice covers. BHLT supplied a unique, driving blues-rock sound that was quite impressive. The BHLT performance, recorded at The Coffee Pot, Roanoke, VA, in January of 1983 kicks off with the R&B flavored Nothing You Can Do. Betts and Hall alternate lead vocals and trade licks on guitar and sax. The band really begins to cook and includes one of the best versions of Betts' signature anthem, Ramblin' Man.

Green, Peter - Story: Man Of The World DVD $17.99
After replacing the legendary Eric Clapton in John Mayall's Bluesbreakers, Peter went on to form Peter Green's Fleetwood Mac, one of the most successful bands to come out of Britain in the 60's. Peter's genius on the guitar was matched by the songs he wrote including Black Magic Woman, later a huge debut hit for Santana, and the supernatural and sublime instrumental Albatross, as well as the classic Oh Well. The film traces that early success, explores Peter s drug use and his eternal spiral into schizophrenia. The film also examines how the treatment he received (electroconvulsive therapy) prolonged his illness and extended absence from the music scene. The story continues with Peter s fragile mental and artistic recovery, his return to the recording studio and live music scene in the mid 1990's that saw his most positive creative output for many years. It portrays an artist who has now come to express his feelings, not just through the guitar music he still loves, but also his art and photography. The film contains extensive and rare archive footage of live and studio performances, stills and original in-depth interviews with Peter Green, Mick Fleetwood, John McVie, Mike Vernon, (legendary producer of the original Fleetwood Mac Blue Horizons albums), Noel Gallagher, John Mayall, Dennis Keane (road manager), Martin Celmins, (Peter s official biographer), Carlos Santana, Jeremy Spencer, (the original Fleetwood Mac guitarist) and many others who were fortunate to work with or know this extraordinary Man of the World.
Last Of The Mississippi Jukes - With CD, 2PC DVD $17.99
Robert Mugge's 2003 music documentary, LAST OF THE MISSISSIPPI JUKES, explores the fading traditions of rural Mississippi juke joints. The blues was first played by itinerant musicians in juke joints on the edge of cotton plantations, later migrating into so-called urban lounges, and regional musicians still practice their craft and entertain their fans in both, as well as in modern blues clubs and casino lounges. The film focuses, in particular, on two well-known Mississippi venues: Jimmy King's legendary Subway Lounge which, for three decades, operated in the basement of the historic, black-owned Summers Hotel in Jackson, MS; and actor Morgan Freeman's and attorney Bill Luckett's Ground Zero Blues Club, a contemporary blues venue in Clarksdale, MS that incorporates the design elements, menu, and spirit of a traditional juke. The story of Mississippi jukes is told by blues historians Dick Waterman and Steve Cheseborough, by the club owners, by local politicians, and by participating musicians. The musicians also demonstrate styles of blues that originated in the Mississippi Delta and elsewhere around the state. For instance, performing at Ground Zero Blues Club in Clarksdale are Alvin Youngblood Hart with Sam Carr and Anthony Sherrod. Performing at the Subway Lounge in Jackson are Bobby Rush, Chris Thomas King, Vasti Jackson, Patrice Moncell, Eddie Cotton, Greg "Fingers" Taylor, Lucille, Abdul Rasheed, Levon Lindsey, J.T. Watkins, Dennis Fountain, Pat Brown, George Jackson, Steve Cheseborough, Casey Phillips, Jimmy King, David Hughes, Virgil Brawley, and the Subway's two alternating house bands: the House Rockers and the King Edward Blues Band. LAST OF THE MISSISSIPPI JUKES looks at the buildings, the landscapes, and the communities where the blues began, and it examines how original blues traditions have evolved over time, carried into a new century by committed musicians and club owners, both in Mississippi and around the world.
Lee, Alvin - Rockspective DVD $18.99

The show they delivered combined tracks from the new album with the classic hits from the band's first three albums, to which Santana IV is the natural successor. This was a hugely anticipated reunion of a line-up that had not performed and recorded together since the early seventies. It brought back the scintillating combination of rock, Latin, blues, jazz and African rhythms which was the band's trademark and made them truly unique.

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

Cain, who continues to tour the world with Journey, one of the most popular American rock bands of all time, crafted this solo album from his personal faith-journey that started in Chicago when, at a young age, he wanted to be a priest. His faith was challenged after he survived a horrific fire in third grade at his school, Our Lady of the Angels School, where 92 of his fellow students along with three nuns died that day. Cain found healing and redemption in music, and his long 'journey' eventually led him back to the seminal faith of his youth.

A folk-rock pioneer returns with a fantastic album of romantic songs, political punches, pleas for compassion-and inventive guitar tunings, too! Crosby has been inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame twice: once for his work in the Byrds and once for his work with CSN. Five albums he contributed to are included in Rolling Stone's 500 Greatest Albums of All Time, three with the Byrds and two with CSN(Y).

Detective - It Takes One To Know One UK - Import CD $15.99
The unique and inimitable Michael Des Barres made his first foray into the world of rock 'n' roll fronting the glammed-up, London proto-rock/metal, scuzz punks Silverhead. Recording two LPs for Deep Purple's own label, Purple Records from 1972 until the band imploded in 1974, Des Barres made brief stab at a solo career, before catching the attention of Led Zeppelin's own label imprint, Swan Song. Joined by Michael Monarch on guitars, Tony Kaye on keyboards, Bobby Pickett on bass and Jon Hyde on drums, Detective were born. Fuelled by the phenomenal success of Led Zeppelin, Swan Song didn't appear to be in a rush to hear the fruits of Des Barres's labours with his new band, who spent a year making their self-titled debut. Evidently taking some inspiration from their new patrons, their first LP carried a dark swagger, with enough punch to make some quarters at least want to believe it was in fact a Zep record in a secret guise. Having previously been happy to let the band sit on their debut for a year until it's 1977 release, their label suddenly wanted a follow-up, and quick. Possibly in an act of too much too soon, "It Takes One To Know One" was released before the end of 1977, a mere six months after their debut. Picking up where the first LP left off, it in fact made a better placing on the US charts, no doubt helped by a heavy touring schedule with the likes of KISS. Detective even made a brief foray into the mainstream, appearing on popular US TV show, WKRP In Cincinnati as "Scum Of The Earth", as a sort of US vision of a punk rock group. A move from Swan Song to parent label Atlantic, with Tom Dowd lined-up to produce their third record, sadly came to nothing, and the band subsequently split. This new version of "It Takes One To Know One" features liner notes based on interviews by Malcolm Dome with Michael Des Barres, recording engineer Richard Digby-Smith and guitarist Michael Monarch. Long out of print, this is the first time it has been made available on CD outside of Japan and the U. S. and Germany
Detective - Live From The Atlantic Studios UK - Import CD $15.99
LIVE FROM THE ATLANTIC STUDIOS was a short lived, promo only series of in concert albums, recorded live before a small, invited audience. In fact, this series of now highly collectable releases, produced to be played just on the radio, only lasted three albums; by AC/DC, The Le Blanc & Carr Band, and short lived Swan Song hard rockers, DetectiveFronted by Michael Des Barres, Detective featured Michael Monarch on guitars, Tony Kaye on keyboards, Bobby Pickett on bass and Jon Hyde on drums. No slouches, after signing to Led Zeppelin's own imprint, Swan Song, they released both of their only two LPs in 1977. Des Barres had previously cut his teeth with Deep Purple protégés Silverhead, a London based band that recorded two LP for Purple Records in 1972 and 1973. Where Silverhead could be seen as the bridge between early 70s glam rock and 80s style hair metal, Detective were firmly based in the gutters of LA and the clubs of Sunset Strip. Where Detective really shone was on stage, and this is self-evident on "Live From The Atlantic Studios", even before a very small, invited audience, a world away from the enormodomes that the band had been playing in support of their first two LPs as guests of the likes of KISS. Although the Swan Song Icarus logo appears proudly on the cover, the LP demonstrates the growing interest parent label Atlantic had in developing the band, even going so far as to bring famed producer Tom Dowd on board to produce the proposed third album. "Live From The Atlantic Studios" remains a fitting testament to the short-lived band. Originally issued in 1978, but never officially made available commercially, this is the very first time this album has been legitimately released on CD.

Drake, Bob - Arx Pilosa CD $16.99
Electric Prunes - Rewired - 2PC CD $15.99
Embryo - It Do CD $17.99
100 years of dada and a half-century of Embryo - Two good reasons for Embryo to celebrate and a perfectly good reason for a new record. "Do It", one of the slogans of the beatniks and hippies of the sixties, has been and still is a statement enormously important to Embryo. Inspired by dada, the group has changed the slogan to "It Do" and has named their new album accordingly. The Embyro collective has been active for almost fifty years, always led by their musical leader and visionary Christian Burchard. That Burchard energy has doubled now, as his daughter Marja, who stood on stage with the group the first time when she was only 11 years old, has now stepped into the spotlight. The multi-instrumentalist lives and breathes the "Do It" concept with the same conviction as her father Christian. On It Do the group for the first time has recorded songs composed by her. Embryo played right after Jimi Hendrix at his last live show at the Fehmarn Open Air in 1970. They founded the first artist-run independent label in Germany, Schneeball. They played with international musical legends such as Charlie Mariano and Mal Waldron. Embyro were one of the first European bands to combine jazz and rock music. Later they became pioneers of the then still un-named world music genre, with countless travels through Africa and Asia where they were joined by local musicians. Always on the move, always incorporating new players, the band has been a force in the music scene for almost 50 years now. "Embryo - real krautrock based in Germany, connected worldwide." - John Peel. "Embryo is not so much a musical style, but an attitude. It's about the serious study of traditional music. And it's the wish to bring the world together via music." - Nick McCarthy, Franz Ferdinand (with Embryo from 1999-2002). "Embryo - they are these crazy creative musicians playing really weird stuff." - Miles Davis.

Jody Grind - Far Canal Remastered, Expanded Version, UK - Import CD $19.99
Esoteric Recordings are pleased to announce the release of a newly re-mastered and expanded edition of the highly collectable and legendary 1970 album "FAR CANAL" by Jody Grind. Formed in December 1968, by organist Tim Hinkley, Jody Grind was a powerful trio influenced by the dominance of such notable keyboard led bands as The Nice, Vincent Crane's work with The Crazy World of Arthur Brown and Traffic. Hinkley formed the first version of the band with guitarist Ivan Zagni and drummer Martin Harriman. In June 1969 the band signed to Transatlantic Records (a UK independent label more widely associated with folk music who were seeking to develop an "underground" roster) and recorded their debut album "One Step On", released in October 1969 (and also released by Esoteric Recordings), By the beginning of 1970, Jody Grind had settled to a new line up of Tim Hinkley, guitarist and vocalist Bernie Holland and drummer Pete Gavin. Recorded in the early months of 1970, the band's second album, "Far Canal" was a fine work. The quality of material such as 'We've Had It', 'Jump Bed Jed' and 'Bath Sister' was outstanding. Another highlight was the excellent Hammond organ led environmental protest "Plastic Shit" (recorded The Roundhouse at the beginning of the year. Augmented by other fine material such as 'Vegetable Oblivion', 'Red Worms and Lice' and 'Ballad for Bridget' (featuring Hinkley on vibraphone), "Far Canal" is a true "lost" gem from the heady days of British Progressive / Underground Rock. This Esoteric Recordings edition has been newly remastered from the original tapes and features a bonus track of a rare European mono single version of 'Paint it Black'.

Released in October 1969, the album was well received by the UK music press, and although failing to chart, "One Step On" was full of musical invention and is a true "lost" gem from the heady days of British Progressive / Underground Rock. The album was dominated by the side - long suite, "One Step On", which ended with an incendiary version of the Rolling Stones classic 'Paint it Black' as it's last movement.
King Crimson - Beat - With DVD, Anniversary Edition, 2PC CD $24.99
40th anniversary edition includes DVD. "Beat" was released in June 1982 just eight months after the 80s Crimson lineup debut album "Discipline". It marked the first occasion where a King Crimson line-up had remained intact for a two album stretch and was also the first album by the band to employ a separate producer - Rhett Davies. The juxtaposition of lyrics heavily influenced by 50s beat luminaries Jack Kerouac and Neal Cassady. The complex polyrhythmic musical textures of the '80s Crimson, the strength of the songs and the cohesion of the studio performances, all helped the album chart upon release in the US and the UK.

King Crimson's final album of the 1980s is augmented with extra tracks newly mixed for the 2016 edition on CD.

Schnitzler, Conrad - Con-struct CD $17.99
Conrad Schnitzler (1937-2011), composer and concept artist, was one of the most important representatives of Germany's electronic music avant-garde. When Jens Struver, the producer of the Con-Struct series, was granted access to this audio library at the outset of the 2010 decade, he came up with the idea of constructing new compositions, not remixes, from the archived material. On completion of the first Con-Struct album, he decided to develop the concept into a series, with different electronic musicians invited into Schnitzler's unique world of sound. Schneider TM on his involvement: "I am very happy and honored to be invited to do an album for the Con-Struct series and wanted to do something special and genuine in this posthumous collaboration with Conrad Schnitzler. I wanted to get as close to his spirit as possible, so I created a musical situation as if we were actually collaborating together in the same room, with Conrad playing his pre-recorded sound-files or modular system and me dubbing and processing it live on the fly - almost as if it was a live-concert situation. Next to many other aspects of Schnitzler's vast oeuvre, I am fond of the noisy, poly-harmonic, poly-rhythmic and sometimes quite humorous minimalism of his music, as well as his way of using chance, which often leads to magical and raw beauty. There are no other sounds on this record except for ones created by Schnitzler, sent through my system and processed live. During the sessions I had the feeling of being in a conversation with him."

Swarbrick, Dave - It Suits Me Well: Transatlantic Recordings 76-83 UK - Import, 2PC CD $21.99
From the dawn of the 1960s up until his death earlier this year, Dave Swarbrick was, according to Ashley Hutchings, "the most influential British fiddle player bar none", whose presence loomed over the English folk scene for many years. His style has been copied or developed by many folk fiddlers both in the UK and around the world. Having played with The Ian Campbell Folk Group across the early 1960s, and collaborated with Martin Carthy on several duo albums, Swarb - to use his nickname - joined Fairport Convention and became an integral part of their classic albums such as Liege & Lief, at the vanguard of the late 60s electric folk rock scene. He remained with the Fairports until their dissolution in 1979 while also playing very selectively as a session musician. In 1976, Dave struck out on his own with the first of a string of six solo albums indulging his love of traditional music - a style of music his day-job band Fairport Convention had been moving away from at that point - helped by many respected guest musicians. Four of these largely instrumental albums are assembled on this new 2-CD, representing the totality of his solo work for the legendary folk imprint Transatlantic. His first two albums were simply entitled Swarbrick and Swarbrick 2: four tracks appear here for the first time ever on CD. After two further LPs for a Scandinavian label, Swarb returned to the Transatlantic fold for Smiddyburn, issued in 1981 on the company's more contemporary Logo imprint. The fourth album to be included here is Flittin', funded by Transatlantic but licensed out to a third party label, Spindrift, in 1983. Both albums were recorded in one set of sessions and are notable for featuring between them a clutch of performances by a one-off reunion of the legendary 1970 Full House Fairport line-up: Swarbrick, Richard Thompson, Simon Nicol, Dave Pegg, Dave Mattacks. It Suits Me Well assembles all four albums across two CDs, remastered, with new sleeve-notes by noted folk historian Colin Harper, drawing from contemporaneous Swarbrick interviews.

Police - Syncronicity Japan - Import SACD $38.99
Return to Forever - Musicmagic SACD $24.99
SACD - Chick Corea/Return To Forever includes: Chick Corea (keyboards); Stanley Clarke (vocals, bass). This is a specially imported limited edition 20-bit digital remaster from Japan. All tracks have been digitally remastered. Musicmagic is Return to Forever's seventh and final studio album and one of the best jazz recordings released in the fusion genre. The album contains the final line-up of the band with only founders Chick Corea and Stanley Clarke returning from the previous recordings. This 1977 release was the first Return to Forever album in five years to contain vocals, performed here by Corea's future wife Gayle Moran and the surprisingly enjoyable Stanley Clarke. This album also marked the return of original member Joe Farrell on saxophone and flute, along with several new members making up a killer five-piece horn section. - The sound is remarkably more orchestral than anything the group had previously done, a cross between fusion, jazz vocals, big band and grassroots acoustic jazz. Musicmagic celebrates the pure joy of music with contributions from Corea ("The Musician"), Moran (the existential jazz ballad "Do You Ever"), Corea and Moran together ("Musicmagic" and "The Endless Night") and Clarke ("Hello Again" and the album's single greatest moment, "So Long Mickey Mouse," offering particularly great spots for Farrell's flute and soprano, Corea's keyboard kaleidoscope and Clarke's entrancing bass).

Tale Spinnin' is the sixth album by Weather Report, recorded and originally released in 1975, featuring the addition of Leon "Ndugu" Chancler on the drums.

That session ended up lasting a week and produced Tale Spinnin'. After the record, Ndugu was asked to join the band as a permanent member, but declined in favor of continuing to work with Carlos Santana. SACD

All Things Must Pass: The Story of Tower Records DVD $17.99
Established in 1960, Tower Records was once a retail powerhouse with 200 stores, in 30 countries, on five continents. From humble beginnings in a small-town drugstore, Tower Records eventually became the heart and soul of the music world, and a powerful force in the music industry. In 1999, Tower Records made an astounding $1 billion. In 2006, the company filed for bankruptcy. What went wrong? Everyone thinks they know what killed Tower Records: The Internet. But that's not the story. Directed by Colin Hanks, and featuring music icons like Dave Grohl, Elton John and Bruce Springsteen, All Things Must Pass is a feature documentary film examining this iconic company's explosive trajectory, tragic demise, and legacy forged by its rebellious founder Russ Solomon.
Ayreon - The Theater Equation Blu-Ray $18.99
Ayreon is the brainchild of producer Arjen Lucassen and composed of a superstar cast of progressive rock musicians. Contributors include James LaBrie (Dream Theater) and Anneke van Giersbergen (solo artist, Devin Townsend Project, The Gentle Storm, ex-The Gathering). This is a truly special moment for Ayreon, as they had never performed live before in 20 years. The make up of the group consisted of too many active touring artists. Over the course of four sold-out shows in September 2015 Ayreon had their first and last ever performances. On the last night they filmed a performance of their legendary album 'The Human Equation' in Rotterdam.
Beach Boys - The Beach Boys: Pet Sounds Classic Album DVD $16.99
Beach Boys - The Beach Boys: Pet Sounds Classic Album Blu-Ray $22.99
The latest addition to the acclaimed & award winning Classic Albums series tells the story behind the making of The Beach Boys ground breaking album Pet Sounds, which celebrates it's 50th anniversary this year. Pet Sounds was recorded in late 1965 and early 1966, about a year after Brian Wilson had withdrawn from playing live with The Beach Boys in order to concentrate on composing and studio work. While the rest of the band were out on tour, Brian Wilson worked in the studio creating multi-layered compositions with painstaking attention to detail utilizing orchestration, sound effects and unusual instruments. When the band returned from tour they went into the studio to add their trademark complex vocal harmonies. - The new direction of the music caused some consternation within the group and the program explores the band's relationship at this time as well as the creation of the music through interviews with all the surviving Beach Boys and others involved in the creation of the album. The US press didn't know what to make of the album at first, although it later became acknowledged as both important and influential. In the UK the album was immediately acclaimed and commercially successful, peaking at No. 2 in the albums chart and remaining in the Top 10 for 6 months. Pet Sounds is now universally regarded as one of the finest albums of the sixties and thoroughly merits it's place in the Classic Albums series.

Tangerine Dream came from a complete different angel of the musical world. Being the first band ever using Moog sequencer rhythm live on stage, being called the early masterminds of ambient sound and highly acclaimed Hollywood film composers for many years, Tangerine Dream have set more than one landmark in musical history. Now here is the result of a very unusual concert of the two legends at the Starmus Festival on the Island of Tenerife. In June 2011 this festival was held in the honor of the 50th Anniversary of Juri Gagarin's first spaceflight. Among the guests you could witness Neil Armstrong (first man on the moon) in one of his last public appearances and Buzz Aldrin (second man on the moon), Alexei Leonow - first man stepping out of his capsule into space, Jim Lovell and many more. The first track of the DVD - "Supernova" - integrates original, real star sounds - something very special. Prof. Garik Israelian, astrophysicist and founder of the Starmus Festival captured these unique sounds. Can you imagine how the sun sounds in space? Get an idea of this sound when listening to "Supernova." Enjoy with this release the highlights of TD's musical career in combination with Brian May's unique guitar. Dedicated to Edgar.

10cc - I'm Not In Love: Essential 10Cc UK - Import, 3PC CD $13.99
Alcest - Kodama CD $13.99
Alcest - Kodama - 2PC CD $38.99
"Kodama" the fifth album from Blackgaze pioneers, Alcest, marks the French duo's ferocious return to the stylistic maximalism of it's early albums while continuing the band's relentless pursuit for new sounds and fresh ideas. "Kodama" is the Japanese word for 'tree spirit' and 'echo' and from the album's structure and dynamics to it's cinematic sound, "Kodama" indeed 'echoes' Alcest's 2010 classic, "Écailles de Lune". But this is no simple back-to-the-roots album: the band has more punch, rhythm and organic feel than ever before. While clearly influenced by bands like The Smashing Pumpkins, Tool, Dinosaur Jr, Grimes and The Cure, "Kodama" ultimately reveals itself as Alcest's 'Japanese album', drawing substantial inspiration from Japanese art and culture. Originally triggered by Hayao Miyazaki's anime film "Princess Mononoke", "Kodama" picks up on the fate of it's protagonist and, at it's core, deals with the sensation of not belonging; of living in between worlds, be it city and nature or the physical and spiritual one. Duality is also crucial for the visual approach of the album, realized by French graphic designer duo Fřrtifem. Paying tribute to Japanese illustrators like Takato Yamamoto, the visuals portray contrasting elements like nature/urbanity, youth/death, femininity/animality and combine poetic elements with darker ones that were not present in Alcest's earlier works.

Bevis Frond - It Just Is CD $21.99
Digisleeve including booklet. Digitally remastered edition. Released in 1993 It Just Is was dedicated to one of Nick Saloman's favorite guitarists Ollie Halsall. This beautifully poignant album is stripped back similarly to the earlier Bevis Frond releases with Nick going solo. Playing everything on the record, the hard hitting 'Desperate', 'What's It All About' and 'Can't Stop Lying' are notably more downbeat whilst the psych pop of 'Dreamboat Sinking' and 'Day One's lyrics make "this album for the dedicated Frond obsessive more than anyone else" (Allmusic). The Bevis Frond is a British group whose range covers hard edge to melancholy vintage indie rock to poetic, classic-rock songcraft. Nick Saloman is the band's frontman and songwriter. They have recorded many singles and albums on various independent labels.
Bevis Frond - Sprawl - Bonus Tracks, 2PC CD $21.99
Double CD edition including bonus tracks. Digitally remastered edition. 1994's Sprawl, originally released on Woronzow, features Nick with Jimmy Hastings (flute), Tony Aldridge (violin) and Andy Ward on drums. Vocals here were provided by Ade Shaw, Dean Carter and Mick Donovan along with Current 93's David Tibet guesting with spoken word on the spiritual 'Right On (hippy dream)'. Hypnotic 12 minute psych piece 'Awake' is interspersed with instrumentals and the grungy guitars of 'The Puller' are offset by Aldridge's strings. The tenth studio album release in less than a decade since and Sprawl - once again - demonstrates Nick's immeasurable songwriting power. The Bevis Frond is a British group whose range covers hard edge to melancholy vintage indie rock to poetic, classic-rock songcraft. Nick Saloman is the band's frontman and songwriter. They have recorded many singles and albums on various independent labels.
Bevis Frond - Superseeder CD $21.99
Digitally remastered edition. Released on Nick Saloman's label Woronzow in 1995, The Bevis Frond's Superseeder arrived after Sprawl. At this point, Nick began releasing albums annually compared with his earlier recordings that would see multiple releases per year. Soaring and melodic rock workouts prevail with a notably strong rhythm section making this record another favorite. Eastern tinged opener 'Superseded', 'I Can't Cry' and 17-minute 'House Of Mountains' are exemplary workouts whilst the garage-punk of 'Dolly Bug' takes a different tone as do 'Golden Walks Of London' and 'Queen Of May' which have more traditional British influences. Playing many instruments on the record, Nick continues here to work with his live band with Andy Ward on the drums, Adrian Shaw on bass and guest second guitarist Bari Watts returns (tracks 6 & 12). The Bevis Frond is a British group whose range covers hard edge to melancholy vintage indie rock to poetic, classic-rock songcraft. Nick Saloman is the band's frontman and songwriter. They have recorded many singles and albums on various independent labels.
Biosphere - Departed Glories CD $14.99
Brand X - Live In Rochester 1977 CD $18.99
Brand X - LIVE IN ROCHESTER 1977 - Brand X are unfairly best known as Phil Collins's side project when he wasn't singing and playing drums for Genesis. This is of course true but they were so much more than that. The interplay between bassist Percy Jones and guitar player John Goodsall has seldom been surpassed, which is why the band have become synonymous with the concept of jazz fusion. This record catches them one evening in Kent. While the rest of the music industry was paying lip service to punk rock, Brand X were doing what they did best; playing a blistering set in front of a rabidly enthusiastic audience.

Cactus - Black Dawn CD $15.99
They were called "The American Led Zeppelin" back in 1970. Tall words, indeed, but Cactus - Carmine Appice, Tim Bogert, Jim McCarty and the late Rusty Day (who died in 1982) - came out only months after their Brit counterparts, only to flame out brightly after four albums (Cactus, One Way Or Another, 'Ot 'n' Sweaty, and Restrictions) before 1973 even started. Now, four decades later, the band that made such an impression with their loud blues-edged hard rock madness?the band that influenced the likes of Van Halen, Joe Bonamassa, David Coverdale, and Kid Rock... The band that foreshadowed heavy music itself?are back. This time, Carmine and Jim (along with ex-Savoy Brown lead singer Jimmy Kunes, harmonica player Randy Pratt; and bassist Pete Bremy) are providing the lusty macho soul. Kunes' leather-lunged pipes atop this hot 'n' nasty blues-metal machine made some quality head-first rock 'n' roll. BLACK DAWN is the band' newest studio album; a compelling step into the future upon a bridge firmly built in the past.

How We Live - Dry Land Remastered, UK - Import CD $20.99
Digitally remastered and expanded edition of the 1987 album Dry Land by How We Live. How We Live was formed in 1985 by vocalist and keyboard player Steve Hogarth and guitarist Colin Woore in 1985. Both musicians had previously been in the new wave band The Europeans. Signing to the CBS imprint Portrait Records, Dry Land was the band's sole album. Issued in 1987, the album was a fine collection of melodic and imaginative rock music that, despite featuring some excellent songs, somehow failed to make any commercial headway. By 1988 a disillusioned Steve Hogarth was considering abandoning music when he was invited to replace Fish as vocalist in the Progressive Rock band Marillion, where he reached a wider audience. The song "Dry Land" would later be recorded by Marillion on their album Holidays in Eden and was also a Top 40 hit when released as a single. Dry Land was reissued briefly on CD and is now sought after by Marillion collectors. This new expanded edition of Dry Land has been newly remastered from the original Portrait masters and includes the bonus tracks 'English Summer' and the 12-inch remix of 'All the Time in the World', both originally issued as 12-inch singles in 1987.

Karn, Mick - More Better Different CD $13.99
Karn, Mick - Three Part Species CD $13.99
Kitajima, Osamu - Benzaiten CD $15.99
Psychedelic Sounds International present a reissue of Osamu Kitajima's Benzaiten, originally released in 1976. Benzaiten is world music and ethno sounds with an obvious Japanese origin, meeting progressive rock and psych rock. The result is a captivating piece of melodic and deeply atmospheric music that paints pictures of life in ancient Japan. If Pink Floyd were Japanese, their music might have sounded like this album. The frequency of the arrangements on Benzaiten is reminiscent of what English prog bands created in the early to mid '70s, just with a different ethnical approach. Benzaiten is even a more progressive effort than anything most British bands have ever managed to fabricate and is still utterly natural and vivid concerning the flow of the music. All participating musicians here are professionals and their performances are tight and still passionate. The sound is warm and vivid and the song structures are wide open and welcoming. Electronic elements in the percussion section add some oddity to the whole musical picture. The cool aspect of Benzaiten is the rocking guitar which keeps the whole album together. Must be the Japanese equivalent to German acts like Amon Düül II, Embryo and Guru Guru.
Led Zeppelin - Complete BBC Sessions - 3PC CD $22.99
Three CD set. Nearly 20 years ago, Led Zeppelin introduced BBC Sessions, an acclaimed two-disc set of live recordings selected from the band's appearances on BBC radio between 1969 and 1971. The Complete BBC Sessions is an updated version of the collection that's been newly remastered with supervision by Jimmy Page and expanded with eight unreleased BBC recordings, including three rescued from a previously "lost" session from 1969. In addition, the set includes extensive session-by-session liner notes written by Dave Lewis. For the first time ever, it provides accurate details and notes about all of the band's BBC sessions. Musical highlights on this new collection include the debut of a long-lost radio session that has achieved near-mythic status among fans. Originally broadcast in April 1969, the session included three songs: "I Can't Quit You Baby," "You Shook Me," and the only recorded performance of "Sunshine Woman." Also included are two unreleased versions of both "Communication Breakdown" and "What Is And What Should Never Be." Separated by two years, the performances vividly demonstrate the young band's rapid evolution over a short period of time.
Leimer, K. - Re-enact CD $15.99
2016 release from the founder of Palace Of Lights. Following a few years of back-catalog recovery, K. Leimer has completed work on his first solo album since The Grey Catalog. These ten new tracks follow an emergent arc, a refinement of the techniques he has used since Permissions. Highly tactile, with an emphasis on subharmonics, Re-enact sketches an antediluvian soundstage of deteriorating fragments scattered among still-recognizable artifacts. This multitude of points-of-collapse in textural, timbral, harmonic and rhythmic relationships, continually folds in on itself to reveal moments of inner coherence and cognition. Embedded throughout with a wealth of digital and analog detail, Re-enact sets a new post-ambient direction for Leimer's work.

Marillion - F.E.A.R CD $15.99
British rock band Marillion, founded in 1979, have, over the course of 17 albums, become one of the most commercially successful neo-progressive rock band of the 1980s and are still one of the most outstanding representatives of their genre. As the first of their peers, Marillion have started to embrace the potential of the Internet for both their commercial approach and to interact with their audience. They have sold more than 15 million albums. This, the band's eighteenth studio album, features 5 brand new tracks - consisting of 17 parts - and the feeling within the band themselves is that they may well have produced their best ever work. Marillion has certainly not mellowed with age: Whilst the album title itself is certainly provocative, it's not meant to be offensive. The title itself features as a line in the track "The New Kings" and is delivered as a plaintive falsetto. Steve Hogarth said, "We've used 'F E A R' as a title with some relish, but only as it shows that we haven't shied away, but it's said with sadness. There are two basic impulses behind human behavior: Love and Fear, and all the good stuff comes from love".

Marillion - Radiation 2013 - 2PC CD $13.99
Mercury, Freddie - Messenger Of The Gods - 2PC CD $17.99
2016 two CD set. Freddie Mercury was a man of many talents and many different sides. The songs he wrote for and with Queen filled stadiums around the globe and have rightly gone down in history, but he also embarked on a solo career that took him from the clubs of Munich and New York to the great opera houses of the world. All the different sides of this iconic musician can be found on Freddie Mercury: Messenger Of The Gods: The Singles. From his debut solo single 'I Can Hear Music', released under the name Larry Lurex, through the dance floor-influenced solo anthems of the '80s and up to his collaborations with legendary opera singer Montserrat Caballé including the timeless 'Barcelona', this is a journey through the career of a unique talent. Messenger Of The Gods is completed by two posthumous singles, 'In My Defence' and 'Living On My Own' (No More Brothers Radio Mix), the latter of which became Freddie s first solo #1 and was the biggest selling European single of the year in 1993.
O.S.T. - Man Who Fell To Earth / O.S.T. - CD $21.99
Two CD release. Original soundtrack to the 1976 motion picture released to coincide with the 40th anniversary of the film's release. While David Bowie didn't contribute any music to the film, the soundtrack features the work of John Phillips of The Mamas and The Papas fame (who composed specifically for the film), and Stomu Yamash'ta. This is the first audio release of the music. Though an album was promised on Bowie's then-label RCA in 1976, it never materialized for a variety of reasons. That story is explored in the 48-page hardcover book that accompanies the deluxe two CD release. Paolo Hewitt and film editor Graeme Clifford provide the liner notes.

Pavlov's Dog - House Broken - Live 2015 - 3PC CD $38.99
Pentangle - Finale CD $17.99
'Finale' was recorded live during the innovative folk band's 2008 tour - their first in 35 years and sees the original line up (Bert Jansch, John Renbourn, Jacqui McShee, Danny Thompson and Terry Cox) revisiting classic repertoire. In February 2007 the original members of Pentangle - Bert Jansch, John Renbourn, Jacqui McShee, Danny Thompson and Terry Cox received a BBC Radio 2 Lifetime Achievement Award from Sir David Attenborough. On 29th June 2008, marking the 40th anniversary of the recording their monumental live album 'Sweet Child' at the Royal Festival Hall, they returned to the very same venue to begin their first British tour since 1973. As Robin Denslow wrote in his review of the show for the Guardian, it was "an emotional, at times nervous, evening that was far more than an exercise in nostalgia, both because they are now even finer musicians than before, and because their sophisticated, quirky fusions sound as in tune with the current acoustic scene as with the more chaotic hippy era". Formed in swinging '60s London, Pentangle were one of the most exciting and innovative groups in the world, genuinely pushing boundaries and exploring new musical avenues. Simultaneously stars of the underground and darlings of the mainstream, they enjoyed an unprecedented degree of worldwide success for an acoustic band and their influence and musical impact is still revered and relevant today. The beautifully recorded and packaged 2CD set captures the band in a series of scintillating performances.

Suzanne Vega - Lover, Beloved: Songs From An Evening With Carson Mccullers CD $14.99
Suzanne Vega celebrates the remarkable life of another distinguished writer, Carson McCullers, with the release of the new studio album inspired by the novelist entitled Lover, Beloved: Songs from an Evening with Carson McCullers. The songs, which she co-wrote with longtime friend and theatrical collaborator Duncan Sheik, richly capture the essence of McCuller's insightful words and forward-thinking philosophies on gender and love. "I feel that McCullers' ideas and thoughts are very modern," Vega says, "and she incarnates them in a way that other authors don't. She tried to live them and paid a price for it." In songs like "New York Is My Destination," "We of Me" and "Lover, Beloved," you can hear the signature cool detachment of Vega's singing and revel in the characteristically incisive observation of her lyrics, many of which deftly draw on McCullers' own writing. But the songs' elastic melody lines, loping rhythms, idiosyncratic instrumentation (including clarinet, harmonium, banjo, ukulele, trombone and accordion), and surprising arrangements (by guitarist extraordinaire Gerry Leonard, who also produced the album) are like nothing we've heard from Vega before.

The concert took place in a stunningly beautiful location within the framework of the SOUNDLab concert series. This special concert was the first official big concert for the three remaining TD members to perform live within the new period of The Quantum Years, the period Edgar Froese, founder and head of Tangerine Dream until his death in January 2015, still had the chance to introduce in Australia in 2014. Thorsten, Ulrich and Hoshiko chose a series of well-known and popular TD tracks, but also came up with many new arrangements and some very new tracks from their Quantum Key EP. Enjoy listening to a great live concert in Poland in a special atmosphere and with a wonderful audience. Dedicated to Edgar.

"The result of this process is a record that I truly think the intention of is special" he says of the album. "I 'found' gas to put into the tank and am glad I did. I think the intention, the theme, and the participation of everyone involved allows this album to act like a fulcrum between the past few years and what I intend to do next with the symphony. I am very proud of it and everyone involved." Devin comments: "Transcendence, like every record I've done prior, is an extension of what's been going on in my world, represented in a new batch of songs. I'm 44 years old now, and this is where I have been over the past two years since Z2."

The Traveling Wilburys Vol. 1 is the Grammy Award winning debut from The Traveling Wilburys (George Harrison, Jeff Lynne, Tom Petty, Bob Dylan and Roy Orbison) featuring the worldwide hits "Handle With Care" and "End Of The Line". The Traveling Wilburys (sometimes shortened to the Wilburys) were a British-American supergroup that recorded two albums, the first in 1988 and the second in 1990, though Orbison died before the second was recorded. George Harrison first mentioned the Traveling Wilburys during a radio interview with Bob Coburn on the Rockline radio station in February 1988. When asked what he planned to do as a follow-up for his Cloud Nine album, Harrison replied: "What I'd really like to do next is... to do an album with me and some of my mates... a few tunes, you know. Maybe the Traveling Wilburys... it's this new group I got: it's called the Traveling Wilburys, I'd like to do an album with them and later we can all do our own albums again." "Wilbury" was a slang term first used by Harrison during the recording of Cloud Nine with Jeff Lynne. Referring to recording errors created by some faulty equipment, Harrison jokingly remarked to Lynne, "We'll bury 'em in the mix". Thereafter, they used the term for any small error in performance and the term was used again when the group were together. Harrison suggested "The Trembling Wilburys" as the group's name; instead, Lynne suggested "Traveling", with which the group agreed.
Traveling Wilburys - Traveling Wilburys, Vol. 3 CD $16.99
Digitally remastered edition. With Roy Orbison's unexpected passing shortly after their debut, the Wilburys would continue as a foursome and release their second album, whimsically entitled The Traveling Wilburys, Vol. 3 featuring the singles "Inside Out", "She's My Baby" and "Wilbury Twist". George Harrison first mentioned the Traveling Wilburys during a radio interview with Bob Coburn on the Rockline radio station in February 1988. When asked what he planned to do as a follow-up for his Cloud Nine album, Harrison replied: "What I'd really like to do next is... to do an album with me and some of my mates... a few tunes, you know. Maybe the Traveling Wilburys... it's this new group I got: it's called the Traveling Wilburys, I'd like to do an album with them and later we can all do our own albums again." "Wilbury" was a slang term first used by Harrison during the recording of Cloud Nine with Jeff Lynne.

Vangelis - Rosetta CD $14.99
2016 release from the iconic Greek musician and composer. Vangelis' name and unique sound are synonymous with some of the most iconic films of the past 35 years. Over his 50-year career he's achieved countless multi-platinum album sales and #1s. This album is devoted to music inspired by his long-held passion for space, as well as marking 50 years since he first signed to Decca. Vangelis was inspired by the Rosetta Mission, an extraordinary and ground-breaking project by the European Space Agency [ESA] to land a probe on a comet for the first time in history, and he has composed this suite of inter-connected music especially for ESA. The album release marks the culmination of the 12-year mission in September 2016 and accompanies some incredible footage captured by the probe.

Mark, Vince, Tim, and Carmine were in California in July recording an album of Led Zeppelin covers. Mark said, "Basically, we rearranged some songs - we're doing a lot of their stuff Vanilla Fudge style. Some of the arrangements are slowed down, and some speeded up but I think we've done the songs justice."

Various Artists - Let It Be: Black America Sings Lennon Mccartney & Harrison UK - Import CD $13.99
2016 collection. The highly anticipated second volume of songs by John Lennon, Paul McCartney and George Harrison is no less potent than 2011's Come Together. The compositions of Lennon, McCartney and Harrison were no less appreciated by their black American peers than they were by their fellow pop and rock acts. Here are 22 reinterpretations of Beatles classics that frequently take the songs in new directions, but never lose sight of the original intention of the writers. We welcome back a few artists from Come Together but the majority of acts here have not been featured previously. Four of the songs are reprised from the previous volume and offer a really fascinating comparison as they are heard here in very different arrangements. While many familiar names are on board there are some who you might not expect to hear covering a Beatles song.
Various Artists - Many Faces Of The Beatles / Various 3PC CD $12.99

CD One is dedicated completely to the years when Pete Best was The Beatles drummer (before Ringo Starr). CD Two is a tribute to their songs, and includes versions by stars such as Ike & Tina Turner, John Denver and Marmalade (who reached at # 1 in the UK with their version of 'Ob-La-Di, Ob -La-Da' and that is included in The Many Faces). CD Three is a fascinating tour through the originals versions of songs that The Beatles covered on their early EPs and albums. Includes songs like 'Anna', 'Twist And Shout' and 'Money (That's What I Want)'. The Many Faces Of The Beatles is a wonderful trip through the world of The Beatles, an album to collect and to treasure.

Wakeman, Rick - Black Knights At The Court Of Ferdinand 4th UK - Import CD $19.99
Digitally remastered edition. On this extraordinary 1989 album, legendary keyboard player teamed up with an Italian singer named Mario Fasciano. Recorded on the Isle of Man, the album contains eight Neapolitan songs and it is the result of a prodigious concurrence of a number of talented artists that somehow reached a propitious zenith of creativity here, on this album. Exotic, Mediterranean, evocative, timeless, classic and classical, and wonderful are a few of the adjectives used to describe this exciting release. Rick's signature piano playing and Mario's warm Jon Anderson-like voice weave a web of medieval fantasy. This is an unjustly overlooked record which fans of Rick Wakeman are certainly sure to enjoy.

Blue Oyster Cult - Secret Treaties SACD $27.99
Secret Treaties is the third studio album and final part of the powerful early '70s trio of albums by Blue Öyster Cult. While the speed-freak adrenaline heaviness and shrouded occult mystery of Tyranny and Mutation is the watermark for the band's creative invention, it is Secret Treaties that is widely and critically regarded as the band's classic. The album spent 14 weeks in the US album charts, Melody Maker rated it "Top Rock Album of All Time" in 1975 and in 2002 Rolling Stone magazine called it one of "The 50 Coolest Records of All Time"

Marillion - F.e.a.r SACD $21.99
British rock band Marillion, founded in 1979, have, over the course of 17 albums, become one of the most commercially successful neo-progressive rock band of the 1980s and are still one of the most outstanding representatives of their genre. As the first of their peers, Marillion have started to embrace the potential of the Internet for both their commercial approach and to interact with their audience. They have sold more than 15 million albums. This, the band's eighteenth studio album, features 5 brand new tracks - consisting of 17 parts - and the feeling within the band themselves is that they may well have produced their best ever work. Marillion has certainly not mellowed with age: Whilst the album title itself is certainly provocative, it's not meant to be offensive. The title itself features as a line in the track "The New Kings" and is delivered as a plaintive falsetto. Steve Hogarth said, "We've used 'F E A R' as a title with some relish, but only as it shows that we haven't shied away, but it's said with sadness. There are two basic impulses behind human behavior: Love and Fear, and all the good stuff comes from love". SACD

Russell, leon - Leon Russell And The Shelter People SACD $27.99
Leon Russell's accolades are monumental in a number of categories, from songwriting to session playing, to his solo work. Leon Russell and the Shelter People is the second solo album by the singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist. This 1971 gem shot to #17 on the Billboard album charts. This recording is a prime example of Russell's instrumental dexterity and ability to produce some energetic rock & roll. Poignant and expressive tracks such as "Of Thee I Sing," "Home Sweet Oklahoma," and "She Smiles Like a River" all lay claim to Russell's soulful style and are clear-cut examples of the power that he musters through his spirited piano playing and his voice. His Dylan covers, "It Takes a Lot to Laugh, It Takes A Train To Cry" and "A Hard Rain's A Gonna Fall" are especially strong and have him sounding so forceful, they could have been his own compositions.

Now you may ask yourself, if those titles are being let go at a 'nice price,' are
there also some rarities in the collection that demand a 'not quite as nice price?' And
the answer is yes. There are some that are just a few dollars more and some that are 'a
bit higher.' If you're interested, here is the list of artists.
Monty Alexander's Ivory & Steel
Ginger Baker (with Jens Johansson & Jonas Hellborg)
And of course we still have the ever popular Anonymous & BB Collections. As customary, all prices have dropped since the lists were last sent out with MANY titles down to a single dollar! For a single dollar you can try something you're curious about but have never heard before! Everything must go!!! Anonymous, who is one of your fellow Artist Shop Newsletter subscribers, has realized that he now has more music in his collection than he can ever listen to in a lifetime and has decided to break the ties to a large part of it while donating all his proceeds to charity. In his mother's memory, part of that will go to the American Cancer Society. Also benefiting will be the St. Jude Children's Reasearch Hospital and the Unicef International Children's Fund. (BTW, if anyone else out there is in the same situation and has a large collection, more than you'll ever listen to in a lifetime, that needs curating, please drop me a note.) Below you'll find a list of books, DVDs and CDs for sale. Anonymous is a real progressive music fan and the majority of the CDs from his collection are imports. I should mention that for each title below, there is only ONE copy available. So if you see something you want, let me know right away!
