David Sylvian and Stephan Mathieu/Wandermude ....CD $15.99
David Sylvian's experimental breakthrough Blemish sees a new interpretation in the album Wandermude, by the remarkable electroacoustic musician Stephan Mathieu. Working from the instrumental source material, Mathieu brings us a new experience of the most stirring textures and darkest thoughts from this pivotal album. Mathieu first collaborated with Sylvian at 2011's Punkt festival in Kristiansand, Norway, when he performed a live remix of Sylvian's ambient classic Plight and Premonition. Sylvian recently began work on an iOS application to display a collection of his digital photography. He invited Mathieu to develop an ambient score for the application, using material from 2003's Blemish. "I've lived with Stephan's work for many years," says Sylvian. "After hearing his remix at Punkt I decided he'd be the right person to ask to rework the Blemish material. The recordings have a beautiful clarity about them due to their simple but sturdy frameworks, and their open ended architecture makes them ideal for a project of this sort." Although it was born from a different project, Wandermude is its own beast: exquisitely planned but executed in real time, drawn from old pains but breathing with new life.
David Sylvian/Amplified Gesture ....import DVD $29.95
When David Sylvian finished work on his new album Manafon he wanted to document the individual philosophies of the various musicians who contributed to the project, to ask what had driven them throughout a lifetime of experimentation and inquiry. The list of players includes Christian Fennesz, Toshimaru Nakamura, Evan Parker, Eddie Prévost, Keith Rowe, John Tilbury and Otomo Yoshihide, among others. Amplified Gesture, directed by Phil Hopkins and produced by David Sylvian, is the result. The film bears witness as the musicians discuss their work, influences, the evolution of ideas, their personal philosophies - in essence, how they came to find themselves on the particular paths they've taken. The original intention was to give context to Manafon, but the film grew in scale to become an intimate portrait of musicians pursuing a line of inquiry in their life and work to create innovative, free spirited music of uncompromising integrity.

Strawbs/Live in Tokyo '75 + Grave New World ....import DVD $15.99

GRAVE NEW WORLD 'The Movie' - In 1972 the Strawbs were in the UK album charts for over three months with this epic album, the film of the album was remarkable for being the first full-length video of a music album produced solely for cinema use.

Ian Boddy/Liverdelphia ....CD $14.99
In the autumn of 2012 Ian Boddy played two concerts on opposite sides of the Atlantic Ocean. The first was his fourth solo appearance at the Gatherings, hosted by Chuck van Zyl, in Philadelphia, USA. Four weeks later he then played at the Capstone Theatre in Liverpool, UK. There might have been over 5,000 kilometers separating the two gigs but Boddy played the same set at each and both his performances were multi track recorded. Back in his studio Boddy then proceeded to edit the audio down to a single CD length and to merge the two shows to create a composite concert. Nothing additional was added, but rather, a careful mix was made of the best sections from each performance to create a unique album that was true to the spirit of the original concerts. The album is released in a strictly limited edition run of 555 copies, in a beautifully designed digipak, featuring the 'pumpkin synth' design by Chuck van Zyl for the posters of the Philadelphia show. Thus 'Liverdelphia' is a perfect showcase for the unique style of live electronic music created by this well respected UK musician.
Blackfield/IV ....import CD + DVD-A $26.99

This is the limited double disc cd/dvd-av edition, presented in a digibook.
Bulbs/On ....import CD $21.99
Led by classical guitarist Neil Campbell (Ghost Stories) and featuring Andy Maslivec (bass), Joey Zeb (drums) and Marty Snape (electronics), Liverpool-based Bulbs create a progressive, classical, math rock fusion which blends unusual time signatures, electronic textures, speech samples and prog rock influenced melodies. "Wild and wonderful music." - Jon Anderson (Yes); "Like Mike Oldfield before him, Neil Campbell is an outstanding guitarist whose originality of thought makes him far more than just another gifted purveyor of finger acrobatics." - Paul Fowles (Classical Guitar Magazine)
Nick Beggs/The Darkness in Men's Hearts ....import CD $21.99
Topped and tailed with two new pieces, Nick Beggs's Burning Shed label debut is a compilation of the solo Chapman Stick pieces from his two albums, The Stick Insect (2000) and The Maverick Helmsman (2004). Containing superbly executed lyrical and atmospheric sketches that by turns suggest modern jazz (Metheny, Pastorious), art rock (Tony Levin), ambient, and classical guitar recitals, The Darkness in Men's Hearts is a consistently engaging and meditative experience that displays the more introspective side of a most extroverted performer.
Tenebris/Alpha Orionis ....import CD $18.99
Formed in 1990, Polish band Tenebris is known for its creative approach to metal and its incorporation of progressive elements into an epic vision. Rhythmically complex dark prog and echoed guitars meet heavy riffs and angst-laden growling on the 2013 release Alpha Orionis. Tenebris' most mature and ambitious offering to date.
Wojtek Fedkowicz Noise Trio/Post-Digital Dreamers ....import CD $18.99
Modern jazz meets electronica and drum'n'bass Eastern European style. With echoes of the likes of The Cinematic Orchestra in its sonic mix, Polish band Noise Trio have created an exciting debut that brings subtle and inventive electronic elements to a sophisticated jazz sensibility.
Porcupine Tree/The Sky Moves Sideways ....import double vinyl LP $33.99
Continuing Kscope's vinyl reissue series, this 1995 Porcupine Tree album is regarded by many fans as one of the band's most crafted and melodic releases. Spanning the period when the band evolved from being a Steven Wilson solo vehicle into a full band, the album centres around the two halves of the 35 minute title track. Awash with melancholic vocals, hypnotic guitar solos, spacious textures and dynamic instrumental passages, this vinyl edition is pressed on heavyweight vinyl and packaged in gatefold cover with printed inner sleeves.
Bruce Soord & Jonas Renske/Wisdom of Crowds ....CD $15.99
Wisdom Of Crowds is the new album from an exciting new project featuring Bruce Soord from The Pineapple Thief with Jonas Renkse from Katatonia. Originally writing material with Renkse's voice in mind, Soord sought out the acclaimed Katatonia vocalist to complete the compositions. Despite the busy schedules of both The Pineapple Thief and Katatonia, the two musicians managed to find time to connect. An intriguing album from an intriguing pairing.
Leafblade/The Kiss of Spirit and Flesh ....import CD $15.99
New album on Kscope from Daniel Cavanagh & Daniel Cardoso (Anathema) with Sean Jude and Kevin Murphy. Leafblade was formed in 2003 by Sean Jude, Kevin Murphy and Daniel Cavanagh of Anathema. Their powerful, yet subtle, blend of acoustic refrains, poetry and emotive vocals has been described as 'nature-mystical.' Leafblade have previously released one album, 2006's Beyond, Beyond. They return with their new album, The Kiss of Spirit and Flesh. They are joined on the new album by Dan's Anathema bandmate, Daniel Cardoso who plays drums. Produced by Cavanagh, The Kiss of Spirit and Flesh steps up the dynamics from Beyond, Beyond, with powerful anthemic refrains, uplifting orchestration and leaden guitar-work as well as the idiosyncratic lute-like nylon strings and multi-range vocals. Dan feels that the album has found a natural home at Kscope, the label that he has worked with extensively over the past few years, 'the writing is absolutely top class and the progressive nature of the music makes it very much part of Kscope's orbit.' He continues; 'we feel the album is a special one thanks to the beautiful lyrics, top class arrangements and excellent musicianship, and it should appeal to Anathema fans and progressive fans alike.'
Henry Fool/Men Singing ....import CD $15.99
Sometimes playful, sometimes intense, sometimes eerie and ethereal, Men Singing is equal parts dynamic drums, spiky guitars and atmospheric washes of fluttering flutes and vintage keyboards. Produced and arranged by band founders keyboardist Stephen Bennett and guitarist Tim Bowness (Steven Wilson's creative partner in No-Man), the album has been mixed by Jarrod Gosling (I Monster/Regal Worm), who also contributes Mellotron, glockenspiel and the wonderfully surreal artwork. Appearing on Everyone in Sweden and Man Singing, Phil Manzanera's legendary guitar skills can be heard in the context of long-form instrumental music for the first time since his celebrated stint in 1970s mavericks Quiet Sun. Other contributions come from Brian Eno collaborator and Slow Electric member Peter Chilvers (bass), lead guitarist Michael Bearpark, Andrew Booker (drums), Myke Clifford (sax/flute) and classical violinist Steve Bingham, all of whom have worked live with No-Man or as part of London underground club, Improvizone. Mastered by award-winning Pink Floyd sound engineer, Andy Jackson.
Nosound/Afterthoughts ....import double CD $15.99
Nosound return with Afterthoughts, their new studio album. For the album Giancarlo Erra and the band have been joined by the former Porcupine Tree and Blackfield drummer, Chris Maitland. Afterthoughts is Nosound's fourth studio album, their first since 2009's A Sense of Loss. That album was described by Goldmine as 'Nosound's most accomplished recording' (4/5) and Prog magazine stated that 'the expression of their loss is indubitably our substantial gain.' Since then Nosound have also released the 2011 semi-acoustic album, The Northern Religion Of Things and the recent EP, At The Pier, as well as playing regular live dates around Europe. Maitland also appeared on At The Pier and his powerful and inventive drumming has added a new dimension to the Nosound dynamic which is sure to impress fans, new and old.
Amplifier/Echo Street ....import CD $15.99
Twenty-four months after the release of their critically acclaimed third album The Octopus, Amplifier are back with a brand new album Echo Street, their first with the new four-piece line-up and first for Kscope. The band of Sel Balamir (guitars) and Matt Brobin (drums) re-emerge at the core of a very different animal, a four-piece line-up that has delivered a subtle shift in style allowing them to mix their epic space rock jams with accessible pieces boasting three-part vocal harmonies - sung by Sel, former Oceansize man Steve Durose (second guitar) and Alex "Magnum" Redhead (bass). Echo Street opens with four vast epics - Matmos, The Wheel, Extra Vehicular and Where the River Goes - and then shifts into more subtle and reflective territory; the haunting Paris in the Spring and the classy, CSN-like Between Today and Yesterday, the Floydian infinity of the title track Echo Street before ending on the anthemic and uplifting breeze of Mary Rose. "We are extraordinarily pleased with Echo Street. We didn't think that we could better The Octopus, but I think that Echo Street has a timeless quality about it. It's probably the Amplifier album that most people will know with time. There's something really special about it..." - Sel Balamir
Bob Dylan/Blonde On Blonde ....Hybrid SACD $29.99
Bob Dylan Blonde on Blonde on numbered limited edition hybrid SACD from Mobile Fidelity. "That thin, that wild Mercury sound:" Dylan's ground-shaking 1966 double LP sent tremors throughout the world. Blonde on Blonde: a double album that transcends time, defies space, suspends reality, and looks through the human soul and tells the listener characteristics about themselves they didn't know. Professor Sean Wilentz, historian-in-residence for Bob Dylan's Web site, comes as close to summing up its brilliance in his superb Bob Dylan In America as any who've tried: "The songs are rich meditations on desire, frailty, promises, boredom, hurt, envy, connections, missed connections, paranoia, and transcendent beauty - in short, the lures and snare of love, stock themes of rock and pop music, but written with a powerful literary imagination and played out in a pop netherworld." No lie. As part of its Bob Dylan catalog restoration series, Mobile Fidelity is thoroughly humbled to have the privilege of mastering the iconic LP from the master tapes and pressing it on hybrid SACD. The end result is the very finest, most transparent digital stereo edition of Blonde on Blonde ever produced.
Allman Brothers/Eat A Peach ....Hybrid SACD $31.99
The Allman Brothers Band Eat a Peach on numbered limited edition hybrid SACD from Mobile Fidelity. Tributes to fallen icons don't come any more poignant or illustrative than Eat a Peach. Released in early 1972, slightly more than three months after guitarist Duane Allman died in a motorcycle accident, the double album honors the musician via sides he recorded in the studio as well as several live performances that didn't fit on the mammoth At Fillmore East. The Allman Brothers Band, determined to press on, also contributes a trio of songs completed after their soulmate's passing. Its execution is near perfect, its concept timeless. Mastered from the original master tapes, Mobile Fidelity's hybrid SACD of Eat a Peach joins the unparalleled reissue imprint's other Allman titles in presenting the superlative ensemble's work in the most lifelike, uncompromising fidelity possible in the digital format. Not only is the punch of the concert fare transmitted with fullrange dynamics and realistic spaciousness, but the studio cuts - in particular, the acoustically framed "Melissa" and "Little Martha" - come through with astounding clarity and body, replete with textural richness that affords listeners images of fingers on frets and sticks hitting drum skins. Includes Standout 33-Minute-Plus Epic "Mountain Jam."
McCoy Tyner/Sahara ....Hybrid SACD $31.99
McCoy Tyner Sahara on numbered limited-edition hybrid SACD from Mobile Fidelity. The legendary pianist's 1972 milestone debut garnered two Grammy nominations. McCoy Tyner's Sahara is a seminal jazz record in more ways than one. In the years leading up to its release, the legendary pianist tread water. After spending six formative years in John Coltrane's peerless quartet, Tyner left to start his own band and signed to Blue Note. But the association didn't last. He regrouped with a new band featuring reedist Sonny Fortune, bassist Calvin Hill, and drummer Alphonse Mouzon and signed to Milestone Records. It was a fortuitous move. Tyner's solo career took off with the modal Sahara, which immediately garnered rave reviews from the mainstream and independent press. Remastered from the original analog master tapes, Mobile Fidelity's revealing version puts any sonic deficiencies to rest. The acoustic properties and orchestral tones of Tyner's piano register with full-bodied immediacy, while the invisible cover that had been obscuring the full range of high and low frequencies is removed. You can hear why he prefers a wood and metal instrument with gut strings. Every impressionistic detail and ringing note is here, as evidenced by "Valley of Life" (featuring Tyner on koto and Fortune on the flute) and the mellow solo poem "A Prayer for My Family." Tyner modeled the album around staying spiritually in touch with nature. That aim is reflected by astoundingly organic, pure sound that paints a lifesize image of Tyner's grand piano.
Foreigner/Head Games ....Hybrid SACD $29.99
Foreigner Head Games on numbered limited edition hybrid SACD from Mobile Fidelity. The moment Head Games begins, a nastier, grittier tone is established, and it becomes apparent that Foreigner is bringing something new to the table. Namely, an edgier, leaner sound built around stronger guitars and harder rhythms. The heaviest record of the band's career, the 1979 effort functions as irrefutable proof that the quintet rocked as hard as anybody in the mainstream and did so without losing sight of the melodies that put it at the top of the charts. And with Head Games, there Foreigner would stay. Half-speed mastered from the original master tapes, Mobile Fidelity's collectible audiophile hybrid SACD of this longtime favorite classic-rock staple bursts with tremendous dynamics, soaring vocal timbres, punchy dynamics, and newfound instrumental separation. With more emphasis placed on Mick Jones' guitar riffs and meatier grooves, you may just find yourself investing in a new power amp to get every last degree of detail that's been uncovered! Longtime fans will be thrilled to hear the subtle nuances now fully discernible amidst a gargantuan soundstage.
Foreigner/4 ....Hybrid SACD $28.99
Foreigner 4 on numbered limited edition hybrid SACD from Mobile Fidelity. Want to be a juke box hero? Here's your chance. Featuring Mutt Lange's spotless production, contributions from Motown legend Junior Walker and new-wave icon Thomas Dolby, no less than three huge singles, and Foreigner's most economical performances, 4 is classic-rock nirvana, a model of crystalline pop-rock melodies and lighter-flicking balladry. More than six million copies later, the 1981 record is still rightly discussed as a front-to-back masterpiece of precision, power, and economy. It's an album that demands to be experienced in the highest-possible fidelity. Mastered from the original master tapes, Mobile Fidelity's hybrid SACD presents 4 in a room-filling, stadium-big sound that simply crushes what's heard on all prior digital versions. Replete with energetic rockers such as "Urgent," "Night Life," and "Woman In Black," the record benefits from a sonic facelift that opens up the previously compressed dynamics, expands the dimensions of the soundstage, dials in a clear path to the instrumental images, and erases the ceiling that pressed down on Lou Gramm's superhuman vocals. For the first time, Lange's obsessive, detail-oriented production can be enjoyed in all its splendid glory.
Billy Joel/An Innocent Man ....Hybrid SACD $29.99
Billy Joel An Innocent Man on numbered limited edition hybrid SACD from Mobile Fidelity. After making The Nylon Curtain, Billy Joel felt the need to exhale and get back to the carefree music of his childhood. He also met supermodel Christie Brinkley, who brought serious degrees of levity and romance to his world. In love, relaxed, and out to have fun, the singer crafted An Innocent Man, arguably the most easygoing and pleasing album of his career. Featuring four Top 40 pop singles and the same number of Top 5 Adult Contemporary hits to grace the Billboard charts, the record remains a commercial staple. An essential title in Mobile Fidelity's Billy Joel catalog restoration series, An Innocent Man is mastered from the original master tapes and made available on fully transparent hybrid SACD. The resulting presentation effortlessly outshines that heard on all previous editions of this 1983 set. Particularly, the effervescent harmonies now possess an airiness and extension that lends to realistic tonal decay. Instruments are balanced and placed on a wider, deeper soundstage, contributing improved to improved imaging and spaciousness. Joel's voice, too, comes across with tremendous clarity, presence, and body. These songs have never sounded so contagious.
Gentle Giant/Three Friends + Octopus ....import double CD $20.99
Gentle Giant's third and fourth (and last) albums for Vertigo, released in 1973 and 1974. These recordings showed the band's development and instrumental skills, with both making the US Top 200 but not troubling the UK charts. Gentle Giant went on to enjoy great success in the States and Europe, but by 1980 they'd all had enough and split, never to reform. Digitally remastered and slipcased, and with new notes.
Incredible String Band/Hard Rope & Silken Twine ....import CD $18.99
The Scottish folk/hippy band's last album for Island Records, dating from 1974. These recordings feature founder members Mike Heron and Robin Williamson. The band split for 5 years after the release of this record, but reformed briefly for a while. Both Heron and Williamson continue to gig and record. Digitally remastered and slipcased, and with new notes.
Clover/Unavailable + Love On The Wire ....import CD $18.99
Critically-acclaimed US country rockers Clover's two albums for Vertigo Records, dating from 1977 and 1978. Huey Lewis was a member, going onto great success after the band folded. Clover's first two albums (for Fantasy Records) sold poorly, and the group was persuaded to move to the UK by Jake Riveria who went on to manage them. "Mutt" Lange produced both of these albums but although critically acclaimed, in a climate of punk frenzy they were out of fashion. Digitally remastered and slipcased, and with extensive new notes.
Eric Gale/Ginseng Woman + Multiplication ....import CD $19.99
The late Eric Gale's 1977 and 1978 albums for Columbia. Jazz guitarist Gale made his name as a session player on an amazing amount of albums (some say over 500!), accompanying artists such as Bob Marley, Van Morrison, Quincy Jones, Billy Joel and more! He also found time to be a member of Stuff along with Steve Gadd and Cornell Dupree. Sadly, Gale died from cancer in 1994. Digitally re-mastered and slip-cased. New notes
Marty Balin/Balin + Lucky ....import CD $19.99
Founder and joint lead singer of Jefferson Airplane, these are Marty Balin's first two solo albums for EMI. 'Balin' features the US Top 40 hits 'Hearts' and 'Atlanta Lady.' Balin has left and rejoined Airplane on more than one occasion, but currently is a member whilst still pursuing a solo career. Digitally re-mastered and slip-cased. Extensive new notes.
Atlanta Rhythm Section/Quinella ....import CD $18.99
From 1981, the band's only album for Columbia which features the Top 30 hit 'Alien.' They went into the studio to record a second album, but because of differences between the record company and the group it was never released. ARS continue to record and gig. Digitally re-mastered and slip-cased. New notes.
Angel/Sinful ....import CD $18.99
1979 album from the US Glamrockers and their last studio album for Casablanca Records. The album made the Billboard Top 200, but by now the Gene Simmons-discovered band had had enough and went their separate ways. Reforming in the 1990s with a revised line-up, they recorded further studio and live albums. Digitally remastered and slipcased. New notes.
Mad River/Mad River + Paradise Bar and Grill ....import CD $19.99
Californian Psychedelic band's two albums from 1968 and 1969. Based in Berkeley, the group was very much part of the West Coast scene not only musically but politically and with the poetry movement of the time. 'Paradise Bar and Grill' was a more folksy-country-bluesy album which gave them a Billboard Top 200. They disbanded in 1969. Digitally remastered and slipcased. Extensive new notes.
Ozric Tentacles/The Yum Yum Tree ....import CD $12.99
One of the most influential bands to emerge from the UK's festival scene, the Ozrics layer ambient and ethereal landscapes with freeform dub trips, incredible rave grooves and psychedelic progressive rock. It's an open exploration of music and the soul. For over 25 years, the Ozrics have experienced the vicissitudes of the rock and roll life. The band has flourished through a number of line-up changes, spawned several side projects (including Eat Static and Nodens Ictus), created their own record label (Dovetail & Stretchy), put out close to 25 albums, scored a hit record and sold over a million albums world-wide. And yet, the basic motivation behind the band's existence has never wavered. A campfire at the Stonehenge free festival in 1983 witnessed the birth of Ozric Tentacles. It was there that synth player Joie Hinton, stumbled upon brothers Ed Wynne (guitar) and Roly Wynne (bass), performing in a band known at the time as Bolshem People, along with drummer Nick 'Tig' Van Gelder (Jamiroquai). From that very first jam session, a musical compatibility was evoked that has since been a trademark of the Ozric Tentacles. It's a signature blend of hippy aesthetics and raver electronics with spiralling guitars, textured waves of keyboard and midi samplers, and supergroovy bass and drum rhythms. The Yum Yum Tree proved that despite being over 25 years into their career the band were still a force to be reckoned with, Classic Rock Prog stating: 'there are enough moments of brilliance here to make this the best thing the band have committed to tape since Jurassic Shift in 1993.'
Pendragon/Introducing... ....import double CD $11.99
Europe's premier 2CD mid-price re-issue label featuring single artist compilations covering all genres of music. Pendragon formed in 1978 and over the past 30-odd years have built up a fanatical fanbase around the world, releasing 8 albums along with countless EPs, live and mini-albums. The band returned in 2012 with their new album, Passion, which was hailed by Classic Rock Prog as 'an album that has both verve and real panache.' This 2CD set collects highlights from throughout their long career to offer a perfect introduction to the band's sound. The set has been compiled by the band's frontman Nick Barrett, who has also written new sleeve notes for the release, detailing the history of the band.
Pretty Things/Introducing... ....import double CD $11.99
Europe's premier 2CD mid-price re-issue label featuring single artist compilations covering all genres of music. The Pretty Things created some of the most exciting and innovative records of the mid to late sixties and early seventies. The band were recently awarded the Hero award at the Mojo Honours and have been name checked over the years by an array of artists ranging from The Clash, David Bowie and Aerosmith through to The Libertines and Kasabian. The band first burst onto the scene in 1965 with a blend of raw, explosive R&B. Over the course of several albums they evolved into psychedelic pioneers, releasing the first ever rock opera, with SF Sorrow, in 1968. They followed this with 1970's Parachute, which was named Rolling Stone's album of the year (ahead of Let It Be, Bridge Over Troubled Water, Atom Heart Mother and Led Zeppelin III). This 2CD set collects highlights from throughout their long career to offer a perfect introduction to the band's sound. The set has been compiled by the band's manager Mark St John who has also written new sleeve notes for the release, detailing the history of the band.
Marillion/Radiation (2013) ....import double CD $15.99
2CD Edition featuring new 2013 mix. Originally released in 1998, 'Radiation' was Marillion's 10th album. Abandoning the acoustic approach of the previous album "This Strange Engine," Marillion returned to a heavier sound. The album reached #35 in the UK. Heavily influenced by Radiohead's "OK Computer" release a year previously, this album shows off Marillion's pop sensibilities. This "2013" edition is a 2 Disc version which features the original 1998 mix by Stewart Every. Also included is the NEW 2013 Mix by Michael Hunter.
Various Artists/Jazz Actuel ....import triple CD $26.99
A champion of the free jazz movement, BYG Actuel was formed in Paris in 1967 by Jean Georgakarakos, Jean-Luc Young and Fernand Boruso, taking its name from the initials of the founders' surnames. In the summer of 1969, the label invited leading musicians of the American free jazz movement to Paris to record at a time when they were receiving scant attention in the US. Jazz photographer Jacques Bisceglia was instrumental in bringing the artists and label together, and the albums which resulted document many important recordings. This 3CD set compiles the cream of the legendary French label BYG Actuel's catalogue. Collecting recordings from 1969-1971 and comprising the best of its improv jazz, avant garde and psychedelic output, the set features Don Cherry, Sun Ra, Archie Shepp, Gong, Sunny Murray, Art Ensemble of Chicago and more.

The Art Ensemble Of Chicago have been a major influence in the jazz world since the group's inception in the late '60s and the recordings they have made in the ensuing years continue to inspire.

Archie Shepp/Live In Antibes ....import double CD $18.99
By the late 1960's Archie Shepp, following his earlier patronage by the legendary John Coltrane, had established himself as a leading player in the field of avant-garde jazz. Although an enthusiastic advocate of musical experimentation, his music still retained a strong sense of tradition, his playing style being deeply tinged with a feeling for the blues and soul music. In 1969 he travelled to Algiers to perform at the Pan-African Music Festival and following this travelled on to Paris where he recorded a series of albums for the BYG Actuel label. This deluxe 2CD set captures Shepp's complete live performance at the Juan les Pins Jazz Festival in Antibes on July 18, 1970. Originally released on the BYG Actuel label as two separate albums, each disc features one extended piece, split into 2 parts.

S.O.S./Looking for the Next One ....double CD $22.99
S.O.S. [John Surman, Mike Osborne and Alan Skidmore] were one of the great but under-documented ensembles in '70s British jazz, consisting of three genuine superstars of the 'Brit-jazz scene.' The group formed in April 1973, and lasted until the end of 1976, toured widely and had a large body of work to draw from, but only released one album during their lifetime. Looking for the Next One, which is made up of previously un-issued studio and live recordings, greatly expands upon their legacy. Although all three men were saxophonists and the band is commonly thought of as a 'saxophone trio', they were much more than that, as this period found John Surman experimenting with synthesizers, sequencers and keyboards, while Alan Skidmore was a very able drummer; anyone expecting three saxes at once at all times will be very surprised when they hear the heavy synthesizer parts, reminiscent of Tangerine Dream, mixed with drums and sax parts; trad jazz this is not! Included in the 16 page booklet are rare, unpublished photos and in-depth liner notes.
Mats-Morgan/Radio Da Da + The Teenage Tapes ....double CD $17.99
Keyboardist/vocalist Mats Oberg and drummer Morgan Agren have been playing together for over 30 years, since Mats was 10 and Morgan was 14! They were 'discovered' at a very young age by Frank Zappa, who invited them to join his band (Zappa's ill health ultimately cancelled these tour plans) and they are musical legends in their native Sweden and beyond, winning Grammy Awards on both sides of the Atlantic and known for their wild and funny musical performances. Mats and Morgan began releasing records in 1996 on their own UAE label. Since 2005, Cuneiform has been releasing the group's new recordings as well as bringing back to print their earlier releases. Radio Da Da was their third album and was originally released in 1998, while The Teenage Tapes is a collection of their earliest recordings together. Both of these albums have been remixed and remastered with bonus material added and neither album has been available before other than by buying them from the musicians at their shows! "They played unbelievable, just unbelievable." - Frank Zappa "Morgan is quite simply one of the most interesting and exciting drummers I've ever heard. Rhythmically advanced and musical too. A rare combination of modern and classic." - Gavin Harrison [King Crimson, Porcupine Tree]
Richard Pinhas/Desolation Row ....CD $15.99
Richard Pinhas, the founder of 70s legends Heldon whose albums are considered some of the earliest releases of 'electronic rock' extant, is one of the most uncompromising artists on the international rock scene, having remained constantly innovative and true to his personal artistic vision for 40 years. He is one of France's best known experimental musicians and is a key figure in the international development of electronic music fused with rock. The styles range from spacey drones to psychedelic guitar rock to lurching, overwhelming mechanical racket. This new album features him in collaboration with well known avant-garde/experimental music names like Lasse Marhaug and Oren Ambarchi, [both of whom have collaborated with Sunn O)))], Noel Akchote and Etienne Jaumet (half of the French duo Zombie Zombie).
Sao Paulo Underground/Beija Flors Velho e Sujo ....CD
Sao Paulo Underground/Beija Flors Velho e Sujo ....vinyl LP $25.99
Beija Flors Velho E Sujo is the fourth album by Sao Paulo Underground. The trio formedaround Rob Mazurek (cornet and electronics), a key player in the Chicago post rock/modern jazz scene who spent several years living in the Brazil and developing a music that reflected those experiences. While in Brazil he met the co-founder of the group, Mauricio Takara (drums, cavaquinho [the 'miniature guitar' of Brazil], electronics). Performing as a duo, they soon brought in the group's third member, Guilherme Granado (keyboards, electronics, samplers). Each of the musicians is an example of the new vanguard in music; Rob in contemporary jazz and forward-looking rock and the two Brazilian musicians in updating and modernizing Brazilian musical forms. Sao Paulo Underground embodies a musical mixture of from samba, maracatu, rock and free jazz traditions. The album has a huge, modern sound which launches Brazil's 'Tropicalia' into a new, heavily electronic milieu. This is the second release from Sao Paulo Underground on Cuneiform; their first was one of their biggest sellers of 2011!
Blue Cranes/Swim ....CD $15.99
Blue Cranes/Swim ....vinyl LP $25.99
Blue Cranes are a key player in the Portland, Oregon creative music/DIY scene and are a microcosm of what "post-jazz" has become at the regional level as a result of bands like The Bad Plus, The Claudia Quintet, Happy Apple, Dave Douglas and others.

Steve Hillage/Live in England 1979 ....import CD $16.99
Steve Hillage first came to prominence as a member of the multi-national rock band Gong. Steve appeared on successful albums such as Angels Egg, You and his final album with the band Shamal. Steve recorded his first solo album in 1975 entitled Fish Rising. This album was recorded whilst still a member of Gong. In 1976 Steve recorded the album "L" with Todd Rundgren producing. The album was a huge success and Steve subsequently formed the Steve Hillage Band which included former Jethro Tull drummer Clive Bunker and future Camel bassist Colin Bass. The band made its live debut at the Hyde Park concert staged by Queen in September 1976. Following the live debut the band played numerous live concerts including a concert in Germany in early 1977 for German television. The track listing of this fabulous performance from the first Steve Hillage band includes: Salmon Song, Hurdy Gurdy Man, Solar Musick Suite, Lunar Musick Suite, It`s All Too Much, (Lunar Musick Suite)/ It's All Too Much II, Aftaglid Pt. I, Elecktrick Gypsies, Not Fade Away.
Hopper Dean Tippett Gallivan/Mercy Dash ....import CD $14.99
Hugh Hooper, who died of Leukaemia in 2009, started his musical career in 1963 as the bass player with the Daevid Allen Trio alongside drummer Robert Wyatt. All three members ended up in Soft Machine. Hopper/Dean/Tippett/Gallivan was an experimental jazz outfit formed in 1976 by former Hopper and Dean, teaming up with the renowned jazz pianist and composer Keith Tippett and the remarkable avant garde drummer/synth player Joe Gallivan. The material on this remarkable album is from these sessions and comes from the archives of the late Hugh Hopper.
Hugh Hopper/A Remark Hugh Made ....import CD $14.99
Hugh Hopper, who died of leukemia in 2009, started his musical career in 1963 as the bass player in the Daevid Allen Trio alongside drummer Robert Wyatt. An inessential but accomplished collaboration that slightly updates the Robert Wyatt/Hugh Hopper-era Soft Machine sound with some '90s New York downtown influences. Robert Wyatt fans will be interested to note his presence on "Free Will & Testament," for which he sings and writes the lyrics.
Daevid Allen & Kramer/Hit Men + Who's Afraid? ....import double CD $17.99
Whichever way you look at it, Daevid Allen is one of the most interesting and enigmatic characters in music. His musical partner in crime Mark Kramer was equally eccentric. Unsurprising when one considers that these records are a collaboration between two artistes for which the words 'idiosyncratic' is an understatement. The music they made together is impossible to categorize and even more impossible to describe.
Robert Calvert/Blueprints from the Cellar + At the Queen Elizabeth Hall ....import double CD $17.99
In the 1980s Bob Calvert - the late resident poet and on-and-off frontman for the space rock kings, Hawkwind - was developing a musical career of his own until he suddenly died of heart failure in August 1988. One of the best of the various archive projects unveiled since Robert Calvert's so untimely death, At the Queen Elizabeth Hall was recorded in London in October 1986 shortly after the release of his Test Tube Conceived album. This set, however, is firmly retrospective, drawing in the main from his solo debut, Captain Lockheed and the Starfighters, and the oddly overlooked Freq. The recording quality, on the other hand, is excellent, and this remains a fascinating document both for the chance to experience Calvert's onstage conversation and for the ferocious version of "Working Down a Diamond Mine," a wry look at life in his own South African homeland - "not a very fashionable place to have been born, these days," he remarks. At the Queen Elizabeth Hall represents a rare opportunity to hear one of British rock's most indisputable geniuses in full and fiery flight.
Robert Calvert/Hype ....import CD $16.99
The highly accessible 'Hype' album was the third of five solo albums by Calvert. Originally released in 1982, it consists of the 'Songs of Tom Mahler' - Mahler being the fictional rock star whose turbulent but somewhat jaunty story was earlier told in a Calvert novel, also called 'Hype.' The album - part concept album, part soundtrack - musically is a bridge between Calvert's new wave-ish 'Kerb Crawler' days with Hawkwind and the Eno-area electronic pop with which he experimented in the 1980s. It's the quirky zone where art prog and intellectual punk meet - and they're not so unlikely bedfellows as one might have thought. 'Hype' is often considered by his fans to be Robert Calvert's best album, in terms of song composition and production.
Paul D'Adamo/Tell Me Something ....import CD $16.99
Vocalist extraordinaire Paul D'Adamo is no stranger to the world of Phil Collins and Genesis. His debut CD 'Tell Me Something' not only showcases a mixture of original compositions and re-done, lesser known classics by Phil Collins and Genesis, but also features essentially the core of Phil Collins's touring band: Brad Cole, Leland Sklar, Daryl Stuermer, Chester Thompson, Luis Conte, Arnold McCuller, Amy Keys, Lynne Fiddmont, and renowned jazz saxophonist Gerald Albright (who also worked with the Phil Collins Big Band). Of course, many members of Phil's touring band are active session players, and there have been projects where a couple of them have played together, but 'Tell Me Something' represents the first time almost all of Phil Collins's entire ensemble of musicians have come together on a project...without Phil Collins!
Hugh Hopper/Monster Band ....import CD $16.99
The Monster Band was a 1973/4 ensemble formed by Hugh Hopper as a touring band with fellow Soft Elton Dean on saxophone, drummer Mike Travis from Gilgamesh, and two musicians from the French band Contrepoint, bassist Jean Pierre Weiller and keyboardist Jean Pierre Carolfi, with whom he had toured France the previous year. The Monster Band album also includes some extraordinary recordings made by Hopper solo. It is a very satisfying experience to be part of the team instrumental in bringing this music back into the public eye after so many years.
Frank Zappa/The Lost Broadcasts ....import DVD $14.99
Filmed on June 19th 1970, Frank Zappa is considered one of the most interesting musical artists in the last 50 years. Famous for his groundbreaking work both with The Mothers of Invention and later in his career as a composer of incredible breadth and imagination working in the genres of rock, jazz and classical composition. Since his death in 1993 his profile has been elevated to that of a true original groundbreaking artist whose work is appreciated worldwide.

John Zorn/Dreamachines ....CD $14.99
John Medeski, Kenny Wollesen, Trevor Dunn, Joey Baron. Zorn's work has been deeply influenced by the work of Gysin and Burroughs, beginning in the late '60s when he first become aware of their art, writing and revolutionary techniques of third mind collaboration. Dreamachines celebrates this connection with nine compositions combining the quirky atonality of Zorn's classical music, the cut up techinques of Naked City and the soulful lyricism of the Masada songbook. A companion piece to Nova Express (2011), the music is incredibly varied and jumps from tonality to atonality with dramatic surprise. Another complex and intense program of modern chamber music filled with meticulous detail and emotion performed by an all star quartet of virtuosos fro Zorn's inner circle.

Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan & Michael Brook/Star Rise ....CD $13.99
In 1997 young rising stars from London's fertile Asian underground - Talvin Singh, Asian Dub Foundation, Nitin Sawhney, Joi, State of Bengal, Aki Nawaz, Earthtribe and The Dhol Foundation & Fun^Da^Mental - were enlisted by Real World Records to remix the work of the inimitible Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan and his collaboration with Canadian guitarist/producer Michael Brook. The sad news of Nusrat's death arrived just as the album was being completed, with all remixes delivered except for Nitin Sawhney's which was created later. The spirit of the great singer lives on in the next generation as their way of saying "respect due." Long out-of-print, this powerful set of remixes is now re-issued for the first time - with a stunning new bonus remix by U.S. DJ Fabian Alsultany, co-creator of New York's mammoth Globesonic dance gatherings.
Lightnin' Hopkins/The Acoustic Years 1959-1960 ....4CD Set $25.99
In 1959 Sam Charters wrote in a letter, "I've found and recorded the legendary Lightnin' Hopkins. It took nearly every cent I had. He's the best, without much question; so I'm not going to record anyone else. I think you should get this out as quickly as possible. No matter what has to be delayed. He's pretty hot at this moment, and after we listened to the playback we both agreed he'd never sung better." Charters was intent on Lightnin' singing to an acoustic guitar. Lightnin's electric guitar was in pawn but in any case, Charters dismissed it in favour of an acoustic in poor condition and requiring a set of strings. Lightnin', needed the money, so didn't argue the point. Later, Charters added, "He sang until he became so tense emotionally that it was impossible to talk to him. He drank steadily but he seemed to play more brilliantly and sing with even greater intensity." That session, and later 1960 sessions featuring Lightnin' on acoustic guitar form the material for this collection. Music making, whatever the genre, doesn't get much more intense or masterly than this.

Roger Eno & Plumbline/Endless City + Concrete Jungle ....import vinyl LP + CD $24.99
It's been six years since the last Roger Eno / Plumbline collaboration, 'Transparencies,' and despite some nods to their earlier work, these new songs are a departure. While the sparse and minimal arrangements of field recordings, electronics and Roger's signature plaintive piano remain, this time around the two have added guitar, strings and koto to their distinctive sonic palette, lending an experimental momentum to these works. Deep drones and textures lay the foundation for choppy edits by Plumbline (aka Will Thomas), which in turn combine with Eno's melodies to evoke a darkly cinematic quality. Atmospheric and beguiling, 'Endless City/Concrete Garden' is a fine sequel to this musical partnership. Vinyl edition includes CD and download card.
Camerata Mediolanense/Vertute Honor Bellezza ....import CD $21.99
Ever since its foundation in 1994, Italian collective Camerata Mediolanense merges Wave and Post Punk with the musical spirit of the Renaissance and Baroque periods, not shying away from experimentation. After five years in the making, Camerata Mediolanense's fourth album "Vertute, Honor, Bellezza" ("Virtue, Honour, Beauty") continues to proceed on this path, mixing archaic, traditional and tribal music with experimental and electronic sounds. The album is conceptually based on the poetry of 14th century scholar, poet, and humanist Francesco Petrarca, one of the fathers of Italian language and literature.
Camerata Mediolanense/Musica Reservata [Deluxe Edition] ....import double CD $22.99

Contains the hit "Carrie-Anne!
The Hollies/Dear Eloise + King Midas In Reverse ....CD $13.99
Recorded in 1967, the Hollies' take on psychedelia, though less kaleidoscopic than that of the Beatles and the Stones, was every bit as riveting. And nobody could touch the Manchester duo of Allan Clarke and Graham Nash when it came to those goose-pimply harmonies. "King Midas In Reverse" proved the crowning achievement - an all-stops-pulled, hip pocket, rainbow-symphony that will live forever. This Sundazed release marks the first domestic issue of this incredible album, complete with tracks included only on the original UK version; package includes an exclusive interview with lead vocalist Allan Clarke, original liner notes and rare photos!
Youngbloods/Elephant Mountain ....CD $13.99
Elephant Mountain, the magnetic third album by the Youngbloods, is commonly looked upon as the pinnacle of the legendary Bay Area combo's abundant eight-year career. From its spine chilling opening track - the strains of a somber Appalachian fiddle permeating "Darkness, Darkness" - the listener is inexorably sucked into psychedelic quicksand by the haunting vocals of Jesse Colin Young, whose plaintive cry to "hide the constant yearning for things that cannot be" proves mournfully irresistible. In addition to Young's songwriting masterpiece, the 1969 album also spotlights a sharp, country-rocking vocal duet ("Smug") by Young and recently-departed singer Jerry Corbitt, as well as the jazzy interplay between electric keyboard whiz Banana and the locked-in groove of drummer Joe Bauer during magical instrumental "On Sir Francis Drake." More songwriting gems loom like sacred totems on this landmark longplayer, including Young's signature ballads "Sunlight," "Quicksand" and "Ride the Wind." It's the Youngbloods at the top of their game, indelibly writing their names in the ledger of consummate San Francisco rock 'n' roll.
The Buckinghams/Time & Charges + Portraits ....CD $16.99
2 Albums on 1 Disc! In 1967 and 68, the dam burst for Chicago's Buckinghams, and the airwaves were awash with that wonderful sound: heartfelt vocals riding over lush horn arrangements.

Each album jam-packed with all the hits, unseen photos, interviews and, as they used to say on Top Forty radio, much, much more.

Pink Floyd/Music Milestones: Piper at the Gates of Dawn ....DVD $16.99
Their first studio album, Piper at the Gates of Dawn, is key to understanding the phenomenon that went on to sell over 200 million albums worlwide. Pink Floyd's debut album, Piper at the Gates of Dawn, epitomized the remarkable year of 1967 and is today considered to be a prime example of English psychedelia. The album's tracks, predominantly written by the late great Syd Barrett, showcase poetic and surreal lyrics often referring to folklore (such as The Gnome). The eclectic mixture of music ranged from the avant-garde free-form piece Interstellar Overdrive, one of rock's first forays into deep space, to whimsical songs such as The Scarecrow. Recorded at Abby Road, the album reflected the new technologies in electronics through it's prominent use of stereo panning and electric keyboards.

Bevis Frond/White Numbers ....double CD $16.99
The Bevis Frond's 21st album follows on in the style of 2011's 'The Leaving Of London,' with great songs played in a panoply of styles all fed through the Bevis Frond's psychedelic mincer. We have heavy guitars, gentle acoustic balladry, punk, some great psych/pop, and even a smattering of prog organ, and if there was one complaint about the last record, it was that there were not enough of the Frond's signature guitar wig-outs. That has been well & truly rectified with the inclusion of a 42 minute instrumental. Eschewing the 'less is more' theory, 'White Numbers' comes as a double CD containing 24 new titles.

In the Silence/A Fair Dream Gone Mad ....CD $15.99
In the Silence first began in 2007 as the brainchild of Sacrament guitarist Josh Burke, with the goal of writing music that would be atmospheric, melodic and progressive, with heavy, dark guitars and drums and an overall epic, emotional arc. A Fair Dream Gone Mad is melancholic metal cut from a similar cloth to Katatonia and Opeth. Josh Burke sings in a clean and expressive style in contrast to the crushing guitar riffs that take ITS's music much further into the metal realms than bands they are compared to like Porcupine Tree and Riverside. A mesmerizing and emotional debut filled with tension.

Fleur de Lys/You've Got to Earn It ....CD $13.99
Latest installment in the Acid Jazz Rare Mod series is the first official album release from these legendary British soul / mod / psych heroes.

Peter Green's Splinter Group/The Very Best Of ....double CD $15.99
Deluxe 2CD set collecting the finest recordings from the British Blues legend's work with Splinter Group. Peter Green is widely regarded as one of the finest guitarists of his generation. His virtuoso blues playing was an integral part of the sound of the original Fleetwood Mac, which he founded in 1967. In the early '70s Green left the band and he was to spend much of the next three decades in the wilderness, battling a number of health issues. He re-emerged in the late 1990s, performing with the Peter Green Splinter Group. Between 1997 and 2004, Green and the group recorded seven albums and this 2CD set collects the best recordings from these albums for the first time. The highlights include tracks from the W.C. Handy award winning album 'The Robert Johnson Songbook,' guest appearances from Paul Rodgers, Buddy Guy, Otis Rush, Dr John and Hubert Sumlin and live renditions of the Fleetwood Mac classic 'The Green Manalishi.'

Cynthesis/ReEvolution ....CD $15.99
Cynthesis is a new band that reunites three of the original members of Zero Hour (Jason and Troy Tipton, and Erik Rosvold) along with Enchant drummer Sean Flanagan. ReEvolution is the middle part of a dystopian trilogy begun with 2011's DeEvolution. The central character, a shaman, is sent out to gather more slaves. He comes across a tribe and senses a light within them that triggers a distant memory of his past. He realizes this is the original tribe he was taken from. He brings them back to the city and encounters what was done to the population and sets them free. While Cynthesis maintains much of the Zero Hour tech metal influence, it also demonstrates the more melodic and atmospheric side of Jasun Tipton's songwriting. ReEvolution will appeal to fans of both progressive rock and metal.

Yes/Going for the One ....Hybrid SACD $29.99
This is Yes at their very finest! The music is splendid...soaring, lush, illuminating. The band's return at the height of the punk rock movement was a successful one, with Going for the One topping the UK Album Chart for one week. It peaked at number 8 on the US Billboard 200. The album spawned two singles; "Wonderous Stories" peaked at number 7 and "Going for the One" at number 24 in the UK singles chart. Going for the One marked Rick Wakeman's return to the band and also a return to shorter song forms...after constructing epic tracks for the last few years, Yes felt inspired to scale things back a bit and recorded some of their most direct and concise material since Fragile. In many ways, this disc could be seen as the follow-up to Fragile. Its five tracks still retain mystical, abstract lyrical images, and the music is grand and melodic, the vocal harmonies perfectly balanced by the stinging guitar work of Steve Howe, Wakeman's keyboards, and the solid rhythms of Alan White and Chris Squire. The title track features Howe on steel guitar. "Turn of the Century" and the album's single, "Wonderous Stories," are lovely ballads the way only Yes can do them. "Parallels" is the album's big, pompous song, so well done that in later years the band opened concerts with it. Wakeman also varied his sound by using the new polyphonic synthesizer the Polymoog and using church pipe organ on "Parallels" and the extended track, "Awaken." Wakeman's stately church organ, recorded at St. Martin's Church, Vevey, Switzerland, sets the tone for this "Roundabout"-ish track. The concluding "Awaken" is the album's nod to the extended suite. Jon Anderson and Squire are dead-on vocally. Jon Anderson has said of the song "Awaken", "We had a hit record! I loved listening to 'Awaken,' at last we had created a Masterwork" and has indicated in some interviews that he considers it to be Yes's most complete composition. Mastered for this SACD by Steve Hoffman at Stephen Marsh Mastering.
Vangelis/Blade Runner ....Hybrid SACD $29.99
Vangelis/Blade Runner O.S.T. (180+ Virgin Vinyl) ....vinyl LP $33.99
"..one of the most memorable and important soundtracks in movie history." The Blade Runner soundtrack was composed by Vangelis for Ridley Scott's 1982 film considered one of the finest sci-fi movies ever made. It is mostly a dark, melodic combination of classical compositions and synthesizers which mirrors the futuristic film noir envisioned by Scott. The soundtrack holds legendary status and at the time was well-received by fans and critics including Best Original Score nominations for a BAFTA and Golden Globe yet, except for a few cuts, it was not released until 1994. The movie remains a classic film with a long list of popular movie stars including Harrison Ford, Daryl Hannah, Rutger Hauer, Sean Young, and Edward James Olmos most of whom appear on this hybrid SACD in movie dialog samples mixed into the 12 tracks of nearly one hour of music. Vangelis makes each track flow into one another. The soundtrack features vocal contributions from Demis Roussos and the sax solo by Dick Morrissey on "Love Theme." The colorful 12-page booklet includes many stills from the film as does the gatefold jacket for the vinyl release. Blade Runner is a timeless classic on film and now on hybrid SACD and on 180g transparent red vinyl. Mastered by Kevin Gray at Cohearent Audio.
Bob Dylan/Bob Dylan's Greatest Hits Vol. 2 ....double Hybrid SACD $56.99
"...an accurate picture of the depth and breadth of Dylan's talents...possibly the best compilation available by any artist." Bob Dylan agreed to release a second "greatest hits" compilation, provided he could compile it himself, issue it as a double album, and include several older compositions which he had written but never issued. Dylan's first Greatest Hits collection included his most popular songs from the '60s, while this volume gathers most of the rest. "Bob Dylan's Greatest Hits Volume II" is close to perfection. Five of the cuts are previously uncollected or unreleased. Three of them have been established as indubitable classics by other artists, and the other two begin and end the album. There are sentimental romantic ballads ("Lay Lady Lay," "Tonight I'll Be Staying Here With You") and wordy rants ("Just Like Tom Thumb's Blues," "It's All Over Now, Baby Blue"). There are angry political rants ("Maggie's Farm," "A Hard Rain's A-Gonna Fall") and spiritually uplifting songs ("I Shall Be Released"). Dylan shows both his folkie side and his rock and roll side and he's never been in better voice. While the double SACD does contain several genuine hits, it is largely comprised of album tracks that became classics, either through Dylan's own version or through covers that were big hits for other artists, including "All I Really Want to Do" (The Byrds), "All Along the Watchtower" (Jimi Hendrix) and "The Mighty Quinn" (Manfred Mann), but nearly all of Dylan's versions remain definitive. The big draw, however, are the previously unavailable tracks unique to this edition: "Watching The River Flow", "When I Paint My Masterpiece," and "Tomorrow Is A Long Time" don't appear anywhere else and "You Ain't Goin' Nowhere" and "Down In The Flood" are different takes than heard on "The Basement Tapes." The songs flow nicely almost exclusively alternating between electric and acoustic. Some are obvious choices, others unexpected pleasures.
Crosby Stills & Nash/CSN (24 Karat Gold Disc) ....CD $29.99
"Intimate and powerful, sad and hopeful, this record has no flaws." CSN's 1977 album is a milestone in music. David Crosby, Stephen Stills and Graham Nash have always described their work as being about the changes that they go through, and every song here is a little gem about exactly that. CSN features strong writing from all three members. The songs show a great deal of lyrical maturity and compositional complexity compared to those earlier, more innocent, albums. All of the three are at their vocal peak. The harmonies here are delicately arranged and extremely well performed. CSN was the last recording on which the three principals handled all the vocal parts. "Just a Song Before I Go" was the latest of Graham Nash's radio-friendly acoustic numbers, and a Top Ten single. "See the Changes," "Fair Game" and "Dark Star" ranked with the best of Stephen Stills' work, while David Crosby contributed three distinctive classics: "Shadow Captain," "Anything at All," and the beautiful "In My Dreams." Nash's multi-part "Cathedral" became a staple of the group's live repertoire. CSN peaked at #2 on the Billboard Top Pop Albums chart behind Fleetwood Mac's, Rumours. Their debut LP was deservedly a landmark in modern music history - what's so striking about CSN is that it sounds so much like the debut LP even though its makers are so vastly changed. This is one of the very few times that CSN have actually managed to be more than the separate sum of their parts. The trio blends in together beautifully and yet each musician retains his indivdual stamp. Some of the very best of Crosby, Stills and Nash, the musicianship is breathtaking. Mastered for this CD by Steve Hoffman at Stephen Marsh Audio.
James Taylor/Gorilla (24 Karat Gold Disc) ....CD $24.99
1975's, Gorilla is James Taylor's sixth album and in many ways it showcases his electric, lighter side. Taylor's unique blend of well-crafted songs, meticulous production and heartfelt singing are all in abundance here on Gorilla. Several chart-topping singles came out of the album including "Mexico" and Taylor's take on Motown's "How Sweet It Is (to be loved by you)" thrust the introspective balladeer into the role of hit-making cover artist. The two big Billboard hits from this album shouldn't overshadow some other true classic James Taylor performances and compositions on Gorilla, such as "Music," "Fool to Care," "Lighthouse" and "Wandering" may very well be the most beautiful song ever created. The lush mini-suite "Love Songs" opens with a guitar and clarinet duet and finds James moving ever so discreetly into Gershwin territory. In this period of JT's creativity he was surrounded by a busy and fulfilling musical landscape where Philly Soul, Motown, funk and country rock were all over the charts and radio stations across the nation and he was more then willing to harness all of this into his own signature sound. Gorilla is a beautiful mature album that contains some very good easy listening soft rock music and Taylor is backed up by some of the greatest musicians around, like Graham Nash, David Crosby, Carly Simon, Randy Newman, David Sanborn, David Grisman, Lowell George and Linda Ronstadt.
Elvis Presley/King Creole ....Hybrid SACD $24.99
King Creole is Elvis Presley's sixth album and his fourth film, released in 1958, it was the last movie Elvis made before entering the army and features him in a serious dramatic role, rather than the light romantic comedies he would soon become known for in the early '60s. The album includes songs written and recorded expressly for the film and followed the film release by over ten weeks. The album peaked at #2 on the Billboard Top Pop Albums chart. The eleven songs include a hot title track by Jerry Leiber and Mike Stoller that was a dazzling showcase for Elvis' intense, exciting lead vocal. Leiber and Stoller had two other songs in the film including "Trouble," arguably the film's most memorable song. Years later Presley returned to this song for his tremendously successful television comeback special. Other hits featured in the album are "Hard Headed Woman" and "Don't Ask Me Why" which were also released as two sides of the first single on July 10, 1958, to coincide with the release of the film. "Hard Headed Woman," the A-side, and "Don't Ask Me Why" both made the pop singles chart, peaking at #1 and #25 respectively. Elvis Presley had said in interviews that of all the 30 odd pictures he had made "King Creole" was his personal favorite. Bonus: SACD package includes 4" x 5" replica of 1957 B & W Elvis US Army Collector Photo that was included in the original LP release.
Yes/Close to the Edge ....Hybrid SACD $29.99
Close to the Edge is the fifth studio album by Yes. This 1972 recording set a trend for Yes of structuring an album around a single epic song. Here the centerpiece is the song "Close to the Edge." The album reached No. 4 on the UK Albums Chart and No. 3 on the U.S. Billboard 200 during a chart stay of 32 weeks. Close to the Edge is pure progressive rock - thoughtful and intelligent compositions executed by the classic lineup of Chris Squire (bass, vocals); Rick Wakeman (mellotron, moog, Hammond organ, piano); Steve Howe (electric, acoustic guitars); Bill Bruford (drums and percussion); and Jon Anderson (vocals). All of the musicians in Yes are true virtuosos. The individual and group ensemble work on Close to the Edge is breathtakingly complex and the arrangements are incredible, everything flows flawlessly from one piece to the next. There's a spiritual influence introduced by Jon Anderson, in the music and lyrics of all three tracks on Close to the Edge. Renewal and repetition are other main themes. The album works incredibly well as a complete work that fuses music, lyrics and Roger Dean's album cover art together in one seamless totality. "Ranked No. 67 on the list of the 100 Greatest Guitar Albums of All Time." Guitar World
Rush/Counterparts ....Hybrid SACD $29.99
Rush's 1993 release, Counterparts is the band's fifteenth studio album and their highest charting album in the US, peaking at No. 2 on the Billboard 200. With the electronic era ending the band reunited with producer, Peter Collins and this album fully embraced the guitar as the main driver behind the music. Counterparts features some of Alex Lifeson's most inspired guitar playing. Geddy Lee's distinctive bass moved into a more traditional rock and roll sounding natural, smooth and powerful and his confidence as a vocalist allows him full control over his range. Neil Peart's groove oriented style drumming continued his transition from the progressive '70s and flashy '80s. The primary focus of Counterparts' lyrics feature dark and emotional themes mainly about relationships between men and women and Neil Peart pulls it off with some of the best writing of his career. The classic, pure hard rock "Cold Fire" is one of the finest relationship songs he has ever written with line after line of great dialogue between the two main characters in the song. Some songs are heavy such as "Animate" and the #1 Mainstream Rock track, "Stick it Out." Other highlights include the mostly acoustic hit "Nobody's Hero" which provides the album's most gripping moment with an impassioned plea for HIV consciousness and understanding - "Between The Sun And Moon," "The Speed Of Love" and "Double Agent" with Geddy Lee's strange spoken word style and the funky "Leave That Thing Alone" that earned a Grammy nomination for "Best Instrumental." Experimentation abounds on this fun album, with a lot of varied, intriguing, and successful material making it a worthy addition to any Rush collection.
Mike + The Mechanics/Mike + The Mechanics (24 Karat Gold Disc) ....CD $24.99
The self-titled Mike + The Mechanics' 1985 debut reached number 26 on the Billboard Top 200 album charts and is best known for the three hit singles that were released from this collection, "All I Need is a Miracle," "Taken In," and "Silent Running." The band was a side project for Genesis guitarist and co-founding member Mike Rutherford. The mood-setting drum work of Peter Van Hooke and the keyboard fills from Adrian Lee play a large part in setting the album's tone, and add some pop zest to the majority of the tracks. Rutherford recruited two lead vocalists to sing the words for his music, Squeeze's lead vocalist Paul Carrack and Sad Cafe's Paul Young while Rutherford handled guitars and bass. "Silent Running," featuring lead vocals by Paul Carrack was the single that launched the success of Mike + The Mechanics reaching #6 on the Billboard Hot 100, and the up-tempo "All I Need Is a Miracle," sung by Paul Young reached #5 on the charts. "Taken In" - a simple ballad that's bettered by Paul Young's genuine emotional charm - rose to #32 on the Hot 100 and #7 on the Billboard Adult Contemporary Singles chart. The songwriting throughout the album is top-notch including the marvelous "A Call To Arms," which began as a Genesis song, co-written by bandmates Phil Collins and Tony Banks. Relative to the era, the songs here aren't just about music videos and MTV but rich in themes of love, relationships, individuality, politics and social issues.
Bob Dylan/Bob Dylan's Greatest Hits (24 Karat Gold Disc) ....CD $29.99
Featuring Rolling Stone Magazine's #1 Song of All-Time -"Like a Rolling Stone." Bob Dylan's Greatest Hits is a masterful sampler of Dylan at his absolute peak, a first-rate summary of his incredible output and best-known songs from his first seven albums starting with a cut from The Freewheelin' Bob Dylan (1963) and ending with a selection from Blonde On Blonde (1966). It's hard to find ten songs that are better and more musically relevant than those on this disc. From folky classics like "The Times They Are A-Changin'" to poetic bluesy rock songs like "Subterranean Homesick Blues." Bob Dylan's early days were as tumultuous and groundbreaking as anything else in the history of popular music, he was the undeniable voice of the 60's and so many artists have covered songs included on this recording. In 1963 Peter, Paul and Mary enjoyed a #2 hit single with "Blowin' in the Wind" and in 1965 "Mr. Tambourine Man" was a number # 1 hit for The Byrds and the Turtles folk-rock version of "It Ain't Me Babe" reached #8. The epic "Like a Rolling Stone" was the biggest chart hit for Dylan himeslf and the tune Rolling Stone magazine chose as the #1 Pop Song of All Time. Dylan is by now a living legend and recently received the Presidential Medal of Freedom, America's highest civilian honour. At the award ceremony President Obama said, "Bob's voice, with its weight, its unique gravel power, was re-defining not just what music sounded like, but the message it carried and how it made people feel. There is not a bigger giant in the history of American music." The iconic album cover won the 1967 Grammy award for Best Album Cover, Photography. This release includes a booklet-size copy of the now-familiar psychedelic poster of Dylan done by Milton Glaser that was included in the original LP. Producers: John H. Hammond, Tom Wilson, Bob Johnston.
Joe Walsh/But Seriously Folks... (24 Karat Gold Disc) ....CD $24.99
But Seriously, Folks... is the fourth studio album by Joe Walsh, released in 1978. Although it looked like Walsh's solo efforts would be on hold indefinitely when he joined the Eagles, this album came as a pleasant surprise to many, and shows a wide diversity. So many subtle influences and sly hints at what sounds were drifting around Joe's head. There are pieces here of everything from reggae to country to pop to full-blown rock, and it all flows extremely well. Produced by Bill Szymczyk, this album features the core of Walsh's 1976 touring band including longtime collaborator drummer Joe Vitale from Walsh's former band Barnstorm, singer-guitarist Jay Ferguson, a former member of the group Spirit (who co-wrote one track on the album) and renowned bassist Willie Weeks, who is well known for his association with singer Donnie Hathaway. Walsh's signature slide guitar is present on this album, in the excellent solo on the reggae-tinged "Over and Over," and peppered throughout the nostalgic "Indian Summer," while "Second Hand Store" has a bit of a country feel to it, complete with pedal steel guitar courtesy of Don Felder. A bit of Eagles presence is heard in the harmonies of the laid-back "Tomorrow," with background vocals provided by Don Henley, Glenn Frey and Timothy B. Schmit. "At The Station" features the great double guitar work of Walsh and Felder. The sequence of "Inner Tube" and "Theme From Boat Weirdos" is beautifully done, and is widely considered to be the best of Walsh's instrumental work. The recording flows from one song to the next before capping off with the full version of the Top 10 hit and concert favorite, "Life's Been Good," Walsh's hilarious, nearly 9 minute satire on rock stardom.
Elton John/Rock of the Westies (24 Karat Gold Disc) ....CD $29.99
Rock of the Westies is the tenth studio album by Elton John, released in 1975, the album debuted on the Billboard chart at #1. Notable tracks include the #1 single "Island Girl," the light and funky and more than a little humorous, "Grow Some Funk of Your Own" and "I Feel Like a Bullet" is the one moment of seriousness on this album - a ballad about the breakup of a relationship and one of the most creative songs on the album similar in style to other songs from prior albums. Elton used mostly a new band on Rock of the Westies including drummer Roger Pope and bassist Kenny Passarelli, who had previously played with Stephen Stills and was an original member in Joe Walsh's band Barnstorm. James Newton-Howard on keyboards and Caleb Quaye on acoustic, electric and rhythm guitar. The holdovers from Elton's previous group and earlier records were Davey Johnstone on guitar, banjo and mandolin and Ray Cooper on percussion. This is a great Elton John rock 'n' roll record, he was just having fun and it shows. It most definitely rocks harder than most of his albums, but in a distinctive style consistent with and instantly recognizable as Elton John. It's clear even from the front cover photo of an unusually scruffy Elton, relatively conservatively dressed in a hat and shades, head resting on hand with a mischevous smirk, that this album is a departure from past efforts. In the end Rock of the Westies represents Elton John being at the very top peak of his best period of the '70s. 1975 was a turning point for rock music...soon funk and disco would be overwhelming the airwaves. But for one album we got to see Elton having a good time, and do it thoroughly and well. Worthy of being considered a classic Elton John album.
Big Brother & The Holding Company/Cheap Thrills (24 Karat Gold Disc) ....CD $29.99
After an appearance at the Monterey Pop Festival in 1967, Janis Joplin and Big Brother found themselves in the national limelight with a big-time manager and a recording contract with Columbia Records. Released in 1968, Cheap Thrills is the classic that became a #1 album and sold over a million copies. This is the album that cemented Janis Joplin's status as the first, true female rock superstar. Crowned by its hit single, a churning remake of Erma Franklin's "Piece of My Heart," the album also contained Joplin's Monterey showstopper, her signature tune, "Big Mama" Thornton's "Ball and Chain," as well as a raw and soulful recasting of the Gershwin jazz classic "Summertime," on which Joplin's always underappreciated band (especially guitarists Sam Andrews and James Gurley) match her vocal intensity with their own ferocious playing. Cheap Thrills endures as the best showcase of Janis Joplin's extraordinary singing talent. Her amazing, spectacularly expressive vocals, channeling the agony and the ecstasy of love and life. It is really extraordinary how many artists have been inspired by her. Upon listening, one is convinced that Janis was and is a one-of-a-kind vocalist who can not only not be equaled but apparently cannot be imitated, either. From the album art to the track selection, this album takes you right back to 1968.
Dio/The Last in Line (24 Karat Gold Disc) ....CD $24.99
Following the well-deserved success of Dio's debut album, Holy Diver, Ronnie James Dio did not mess with that winning formula when he released the band's second studio album, The Last in Line. The album is full of heavy and hard rocking songs that draw upon the fantasy lyrics for which the band is known, lots of guitar solos and of course, Ronnie James Dio's distinctive and unique voice. The 1984 release was was the first Dio album to be certified Platinum. The line up on the album is the same as that on Holy Diver - Dio, Vivian Campbell, Jimmy Bain, Vinny Appice plus the addition of keyboard player Claude Schnell who added to the band's sound. The album kicks off with "We Rock," a classic metal opener..it is fast, furious and indeed rocks! You can hear all of Campbell's nuances on the guitar, from harmonics to whammy bar divebombs. Jimmy Bain's bass playing comes forward in stunning clarity and, of course, Vinny Appice's drumming sounds brilliant. The title track which was a FM radio hit is next and may be the highlight of the album though the rest of the recording is a mixture of hard and heavy material such as "Breathless" and "Evil Eyes." There's the super-speed metal of "I Speed At Night," some melodic metal moments in "Mystery" and the epic riff that carries "Egypt."
Marianne Faithfull/Broken English (180+ Virgin Vinyl) ....vinyl LP $31.99
For Marianne Faithfull, 1979's Broken English was a radical departure, featuring a contemporary fusion of rock, punk, New Wave and dance, with liberal use of synthesizers. No one was prepared for the transformation of Marianne Faithfull's innocent flower child image, her immediately preceding albums had been in a relatively gentle folk or country and western style. Those who listened were in for a surprise, especially those who first heard her in the '60s as the virginal voice of her boyfriend, Mick Jagger's, "As Tears Go By." When seemingly she had disappeared entirely, she emerged with this dark but definitely musically modern work. And her voice! After years of drug abuse, her voice was in a lower register, far raspier, and had a more world-weary quality than in the past that matched the often raw emotions expressed in the newer songs. Broken English was widely hailed by critics and audiences alike on its release, a successful album without the aid of a huge hit single. The album reached # 57 on the UK album charts and # 82 in the US. The album contains some of her most famous songs, including the title track and "The Ballad of Lucy Jordan," and was notable for the controversy surrounding the final number "Why D'Ya Do It." Although the boundaries have shifted in the decades since this album's release, the language is still shocking, the album is still as potent as ever and remains Marianne's masterpiece, and one of the best albums by a female vocalist ever.
Scorpions/Love at First Sting (24 Karat Gold Disc) ....CD $29.99
The Scorpions are the largest selling German band in rock history - Klaus Miene, Rudolf Schenker, Matthias Jabs, Francis Bucholz, and Herman Rarebell are legends of the metal genre. Although the Scorpions had already achieved fame after 1982's Blackout, Love at First Sting was the first Scorpions album to please the overall radio world and brought them their biggest single of the decade. It is from this record that most of the group's hits originate, and the tracklist reads like a greatest hits collection. Love at First Sting is the ninth studio album by the band, it peaked at number 6 on the Billboard 200 chart in 1984 and went triple platinum. The album features an equal balance of heavier tracks, catchy metal driven by memorable riffs, and power ballads. "Rock You Like A Hurricane" is one of their biggest hits and remains their signature song. The tune reached number 25 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart, number 14 in Germany, number 2 in the French and Swiss Top 50. The ballad "Still Loving You" reached number 64 on the same US chart and is one of the best of the metal era and showcases pretty passionate soloing from lead guitarist Matthias Jabs. Tracks like "Big City Nights," "Bad Boys Running Wild," and "I'm Leaving You" are all very strong, featuring excellent melodies penned by rhythm guitarist Rudolf Schenker. The acoustic turned heavy rocker "Coming Home" is one of the strongest tracks and was the opening song for many of their live shows. This album is notable in that it was one of the first digitally recorded heavy metal albums ever released. The original cover photo was created by famed photogrpaher Helmut Newton.
Scorpions/Virgin Killer (24 Karat Gold Disc) ....CD $24.99
Virgin Killer is the first of four studio releases that really defined the Scorpions and their highly influential urgent metallic sound. It was released in 1976 and was the first album of the band to attract attention outside Europe. The album was a step in the band's shift from psychedelic music to hard rock. For the first time in the band's career the line-up stayed the same with Klaus Meine on vocals, Uli Jon Roth on lead guitar, Rudolf Schenker on rhythm guitar, Francis Buchholz on bass, and Rudy Lenners on drums. The nine tracks were laid down with Dieter Dierks producing. The band is in top form and churns out some melodic yet blistering heavy rock. Virgin Killer is full of heavy songs and exceptionally, fast, innovative guitar leads by Uli Jon Roth. These songs are infectious and Uli's guitar solo on the Jimi Hendrix inspired "Polar Nights" exhibits the thunder-heavy riffs and grooves that make it a classic. Virgin Killer should have made the band superstars, the recording draws the line of what was classic hard rock and true heavy metal. The metal is so clear cut and state-of-the-art, but since metal was still very much an underground movement, the Scorpions would have to wait until the '80's when the band cranked out their first hits. The Hendrix comparisons are endless, Virgin Killer is simply essential listening; a landmark album for the genre's development that made Uli Jon Roth a guitar legend.
The Byrds/Younger than Yesterday (24 Karat Gold Disc) ....CD $24.99
Four of the five original members of The Byrds appear on Younger Than Yesterday, their fourth album recorded in 1966 and released in 1967. Time has shown it to be among the most durable of the band's albums. David Crosby, Roger McGuinn, and Chris Hillman come into their own as songwriters and Michael Clarke continued to mature into an impressive drummer. The album successfully expands their musical styles into several different directions yet remains a focused set blending folk-rock, heavy psychedelia, jazz influences and early indicators of the country rock direction the band later pursued. While there's a somber, brooding tone that hangs over many of the songs, the album has a fresh playful quality capturing new musical textures, including reverse tape effects and brass instruments - notably, Hugh Masekela's trumpet solo on the hit single, "So You Want to Be a Rock 'n' Roll Star." The group's highly distinctive arrangements provide a solid backdrop for their exquisitely controlled vocal harmonies on tracks such as "My Back Pages", "Have You Seen Her Face," "Everybody's Been Burned" and "Renaissance Fair" among others. West Coast music at its creative peak - a masterpiece of psychedelic folk rock and roll.
Phil Collins/...But Seriously (24 Karat Gold Disc) ....CD $24.99
Phil Collins released his fourth solo album ...But Seriously in November of 1989 closing the year as well as the decade out on a very high note. The tone of the album is serious, as the title suggests. Instead of focusing entirely on personal relationships and simple fun, Collins expands his focus to the exploration of socio-economic and political themes. He does not abandon themes of love and relationships but sings with a greater maturity than he did on earlier records. Phil's singing, songwriting, playing and arranging is first rate, and he gets excellent help from some of his famous friends, including Eric Clapton, Steve Winwood, Stephen Bishop, David Crosby, Leland Sklar, Pino Paladino, and others. ...But Seriously contains five singles that reached the Billboard Top 40: "Another Day in Paradise" #1, "I Wish It Would Rain Down" #3, "Do You Remember?" #4, "Something Happened on the Way to Heaven" #4, "Hang in Long Enough" #23. "Another Day in Paradise" and its theme regarding the homeless won Collins a Grammy for Record of the Year.
James Taylor/Mud Slide Slim and the Blue Horizon (24 Karat Gold Disc) ....CD $24.99
Mud Slide Slim and the Blue Horizon is James Taylor's third album. It contained his biggest hit,"You've Got a Friend," which became his only #1 on the Billboard charts. The album included another Top 40 hit, "Long Ago and Far Away" and concert favorites, in particularly "You Can Close Your Eyes." The album won two 1972 Grammy Awards including Best Pop Vocal Performance and Song Of The Year ("You've Got A Friend"). Mud Slide Slim shows a different aspect of Taylor's talents in that he has a wider selection of different types of songs, lovely, lilting, uplifting, pensive, hopeful vignettes that convey a peace and serenity rarely found so early in one's career. The music is mostly based around Taylor's acoustic guitar with help here and there from Carole King on piano, John Hartford on banjo, Richard Greene on fiddle, The Memphis Horns and Joni Mitchell and Kate Taylor on background vocals. James Taylor perfectly synthesizes the white and black strains of American music. His undemonstrative singing style bespeaks great emotion, his harmonic songs are sophisticated and his embellishment of a melody line is almost always bluesy. This album is testimony to his wonderful talent and ability which has been there from the start...brilliant proof of just how incredibly talented an interpretive artist Taylor really is.
James Taylor/Walking Man (24 Karat Gold Disc) ....CD $24.99
Walking Man, James Taylor's fifth album, released in 1974 finds him at a transitional period. This album is the first that has the comtemporary JT feel to it, his sound and songwriting had matured. He still delivers the classic sound developed back in the Sweet Baby James era but the "one man and his guitar" format has given way to heavier orchestration and use of a horn secion that gives the general sound more of a bite. The production is precise and manicured and always features Taylor's unique guitar style and at the center of each song is Taylor's friendly, vulnerable voice. James alternates between ballads with strings, ballads with horns and ballads with himself, as well as jazz and folk. There is a strong jazzy feeling on the whole album and sometimes, the jazz takes risky, surprising and beautiful turns. The title song "Walking Man," released as the album's first single stands today as an often reprised fan favourite. Also included is the tender lullaby "Daddy's Baby," written in honor of Taylor's newly born daughter. Taylor delivers Chuck Berry's 1964 hit, "The Promised Land," with understated fidelity and joining James on his most unabashed rock effort to date, "Rock and Roll Is Music Now" is Carly Simon and Paul and Linda McCartney. Taylor has an understated way with a lyric but always hits his mark, which is the listener's heart.
Joe Walsh/The Smoker You Drink the Player You Get (24 Karat Gold Disc) ....CD 24.99
"Walsh's ability to swing wildly from one end of the rock scale to the other is unparalleled and makes for an album to suit many tastes." This is the album that proved to be Joe Walsh's commercial breakthrough, largely on the strength of two rock classics, one of the most beloved rock songs of the 1970s, "Rocky Mountain Way" and "Meadows." Though the album's front cover credits only Walsh, Joe shares the vocals and songwriting with the three members of his band, Barnstorm: drummer/multi-instrumentalist Joe Vitale, bassist Kenny Passarelli, and keyboardist Rocke Grace. This isn't your typical 70's classic rock album with bass, drums, guitar and vocals - it is a masterful score covering so many moods from the dark "Wolf" to the bouncy "Happy Ways" to the breezy "Days Gone By." Walsh's, "Rocky Mountain Way" vocal is way back in the mix, like he's already up where the air is rare. But his guitars are the real stars: the husky main riff, his powerful slide runs and that voice-box effect in the solo that would later be used by Peter Frampton on his blockbuster, "Frampton Comes Alive." The Smoker You Drink, The Player You Get is essential for Joe Walsh fans, a superb album by anyone's standards. This album belongs in the Art Rock category - Walsh is the king of the tasty fill. He's a favorite of guitar heroes like Eric Clapton, Jimmy Page and Pete Townshend who once said, "I don't want to sound ridiculous, but Walsh is one of the guys I go nuts-rapturous about."
Stevie Wonder/Music of My Mind (24 Karat Gold Disc) ....CD $29.99
Music of My Mind is widely hailed as Stevie Wonder's artistic rebirth, the beginning of his "classic period." The1972 release is a breathtaking exploration of soul, sound and the sonic possibilities of the recording studio, shaped as much by his roots in R&B as it is by his interest in electronic instrumentation. Compared to his earlier work, this music feels worlds away, the texture of the album was different from anything he had released. Performing almost entirely solo, Stevie ties overdubs of keyboards, drums, harmonica as well as his mastery of traditional song structure and his immense musical personality into well-woven audio tapestries. Standout tracks include "Superwoman (Where Were You When I Needed You)," "Happier Than The Morning Sun," "Keep On Running" and "I Love Every Little Thing About You." He makes a small job of transposing the passion of soul music into a synthesized world. At this point, people realized that Wonder was no longer suggesting brilliance. He had found it.
Gary Wright/Dreamweaver (24 Karat Gold Disc) ....$24.99
After succesful albums with the band, Spooky Tooth as well as critically praised solo albums, Gary Wright stretched the pop music envelope and released the first-ever all-synthesizer / keyboard album featuring his intense, soulful lead vocals and brilliant keyboard playing along with the drum work of Jim Keltner and Andy Newmark. The arrangements are quite traditional, the keys fill the roles of bass and guitar. The song "Dream Weaver" became a huge hit single and made Gary Wright a star and its follow-up single, "Love Is Alive" reached #2 as "The Dream Weaver" album made a steady climb into Billboard's Top 10. Other tracks on this album included album rock radio favorites, "Much Higher" and "Power of Love," (the only guitar track) that featured Ronnie Montrose on electric guitar. "The Dream Weaver" is filled with genuine authentic riffs and melodies mining funky grooves and blusey gospel beats straight from late '60s early '70s R&B.

Stella Vander/Passage du Nord Ouest ....import double CD $24.99
"Stella speaks of dreams, children, love, innocence, light... After many years
sharing the spotlight with Christian Vander, she steps up and takes center stage. From the
very beginning of her performance, she manages to create a double climate: transparency
flirts with depth, darkness specks the light. She leads us to a magic garden, haunted by
pixies, troubadours, and ancient tales. Stella glides through warm, fluid air, extends her
modulations to the tip of her wings, rises, as if spellbound, and sometimes fades out in a
whisper. Hers is, quite simply, a beautiful voice." Sound and recording
directly onto stereo tape by Francis Linon - December 29, 1991.

Copies of the original have been selling for $300.00 and up on eBay and are considered extremely rare. Sound Resources is bringing back the two original discs in a Deluxe Edition which features a third "Remix Disc" with performances by Jon Davison (Yes / Glass Hammer), Alan Shikoh, David Wallimann and other names well known to Glass Hammer fans. Remixed by Fred Schendel and Steve Babb, mastered by Bob Katz of Digital Domain and art and design by the legendary Roger Dean, the Deluxe Edition is a must for any fan of modern progressive rock. Admittedly it has taken us a very long time to repackage and reissue this CD, mainly because we wanted to do something very special with an album our fans think of as a 'classic.'
Love/Four Sail ....CD $12.99
Love was formed by Arthur Lee in 1966 and recorded four classic albums for Elektra Records, including the critically acclaimed Forever Changes.

Our CD reissue includes 3 rare bonus tracks.
Blood Sweat & Tears/Rare Rarer & Rarest ....CD $13.99

The soundtrack recordings are making their worldwide CD debut.

These are the first known recordings made by this group for Elektra Records in the late 1960s. They were meant to be the first album by Soft White Underbelly. Featuring Buck Dharma, the group eventually evolved into Blue Oyster Cult. B.O.C. sometimes played small clubs under the name Soft White Underbelly. These rare historic recordings should appeal to all those Blue Oyster Cult fans, especially Jude Crowbridge, who chanted "BOC really rules, man!"

Masked Marauders/Complete Deity Recordings ....CD $12.99
In January of 1970, The Masked Marauders were touted as a supergroup consisting of Paul McCartney, John Lennon, Bob Dylan and Mick Jagger. The group and album were based on a fictional article publishing in Rolling Stone magazine on December 13th, 1969. Based on the hype, and the speculation that some of those artists may have actually been involved, it has been one of the most sought after collector's items over the past four decades. The album was even featured recently on Brian Williams NBC news program, Rock Center. This CD reissue contains the complete recordings issued on Deity Records in 1970.
Sha Na Na/The Night Is Still Young ....CD $12.99

Butterfield Blues Band/Original Lost Elektra Sessions ....CD $12.99
The Paul Butterfield Blues Band set the standards in the 1960s for kick-ass white electric blues. Arguably no other group could hold a candle to them. In 1964 The Butterfield Blues Band recorded what was to be their first album for Elektra Records. For unknown reasons the album was never issued and sat quietly in the vaults for 30 years. The Original Lost Elektra Sessions features original versions of some their most beloved tracks, plus some tracks very few people have ever heard. The album features Mike Bloomfield, Elvin Bishop & Sam Lay. Includes 19 tracks.
Butterfield Blues Band/Live Vol. 2 ....CD $13.99
The Paul Butterfield Blues Band set the standards in the 1960s for kick-ass white electric blues. Arguably no other group could hold a candle to them. In 1971 Elektra Records issued a two record set of The Butterfield Blues Band live at the L.A. Troubadour. The two LP set did not include the full concert. This CD, Live Vol. 2, picks up the balance of the concert with 8 rare tracks - Gene's Tune, Nobody's Fault But Mine, Losing Hand, All In A Day, Feel So Bad, Except You, You've Got To Love Her With A Feeling, Love March. Butterfield fans are going to want this disc to add to the first Live CD.
Tangent/Le Sacre du Travail ....CD $16.99
Le Sacre Du Travail (The Rite Of Work) is the group's first fully blown "concept album" but band-leader Andy Tillison is keen to point out that this concept is something that involves all of us now rather than a rambling fiction. Formed from a single hour long piece of music in 5 movements and referred to by the band as "An Electric Sinfonia" based around a working day of a typical Western-world citizen, the album has a very personal feel. It's highly orchestral and 20th century classical in tone, very much inspired by Stravinsky's The Rite Of Spring. Described by Inside Out CEO Thomas Waber as "A very mature album" with "Stellar Musicianship" - this album sees the lineup of The Tangent revert to an earlier formation, Andy Tillison (composer/keyboards/singer) again bringing on board Jonas Reingold on bass (The Flower Kings, Karmakanic), Jakko Jakszyk on guitar & vocals (Schizoid Band, Level 42), Theo Travis on wind instruments (Soft Machine, Steve Wilson Band) with the new additions of Gavin Harrison on drums (Porcupine Tree, King Crimson) & David Longdon on vocal harmonies (Big Big Train). In addition there are cameo appearances by Rikard Sjoblom (Beardfish) and Guy Manning amongst others.
Sound of Contact/Dimensionaut ....CD $16.99
With three of his own albums under his belt, Simon Collins, son of legendary musician Phil Collins, decided to try something he had always wanted to do. Having grown up on tour with Genesis, Simon had a rare and unique perspective that inspired him to eventually pursue his own music career. After a decade of writing, producing and promoting his solo career, Simon kept in touch with a handful of musicians with whom he had a strong connection and a rare chemistry. With a shared vision and strong musical bond they embraced what was clearly an organic evolution and decided to bring their creative forces together. That band is now here and called "Sound of Contact." At its core the band consists of Simon and co-producer/co-writer and keyboardist Dave Kerzner (Sonic Reality, Kevin Gilbert) with the additon of such great co-writers and guitarists/bassists as Matt Dorsey and Kelly Nordstrom as well as Hannah Stobart (Rocket Moth, Wishing Tree) as a special guest in the studio. The live touring line up for Sound of Contact includes Simon Collins on vocals and drums, Dave Kerzner on keyboards, Matt Dorsey on bass and John Wesley (Porcupine Tree, Fish) on guitar. Sound of Contact's debut album "Dimensionaut" is a concept album about a dimensional time and space traveler called "Dimo" who is on a mission to expand the boundaries of the human experience. The album features a wide range of styles and dynamics from dark and mysterious progressive rock to nostalgic classic rock to high energy alternative to sci-fi film score-infused "space rock."
Leprous/Coal ....CD $16.99
With their 2011 album and Inside Out Music debut, "Bilateral," creating more than just a few ripples on the surface, Leprous was suddenly faced with the daunting task of having to follow up, and hopefully build upon, a true underground success and one many fans and media critics had heralded as a stroke of genius and a little masterpiece of its own. The absolute pinnacle of their career this far is, however, their brand new album "Coal." "Coal" was produced by Heidi Solberg Tveitan and Vegard Tveitan of Mnemosyne together with Leprous and mixed by Jens Bogren as well as mastered by Tony Lindgren at Fascination Street Studios (Kreator, Opeth, Symphony X; etc.). From the pounding opener "Foe" to the boundary-pushing closer of "Contaminate Me," "Coal" is an album full of surprises and with an intense complete flow. Via their first single of "Chronic," a tune balancing between laid-back melancholy and drama played out almost like a theatre-performance, Leprous lays the foundation of an album that, while fitting nicely into the string of always further developing releases so far, also has something quite new to offer; something that becomes evident already by the third song, the album's title track, where Leprous effortlessly mix grandiose prog rock with a darker and more minimalistic approach.
White Willow/Ignis Fatuus ....import double CD $28.99
An early entry in the 1990's prog revival canon, White Willow's debut Ignis Fatuus was an acknowledged influence on numerous later prog bands and has been praised by the likes of Cathedral's Lee Dorrian and Opeth's Mikael Akerfeldt. One of the earliest freak-folk albums, Ignis Fatuus is also seen as a precursor to bands like Espers and Circulus. A unique mixture of retro prog (mellotrons and Moogs galore) and medieval folk (crumhorns are go!), this reissue features extensive liner notes by Sid Smith, the original album remastered, and an extra CD of previously unreleased material including demos, outtakes and live recordings.

Toyah/In the Court of the Crimson Queen ....import CD $21.99
In the Court of the Crimson Queen was Toyah's fifteenth solo studio album. Originally released in 2008, the album title (referencing King Crimson's debut album) was suggested by producer/co-author Simon Darlow and was endorsed by Crimso head honcho (and Toyah's husband) Robert Fripp. "At last my husband's done something for my career!" Toyah commented. A powerful Bowie-esque art rock statement, the album was New York Good Times 'Album Of The Year.' This is the 2013 reissue with bonus track, 21st Century Supersister.
Bass Communion/Loss ....import CD + DVD-A $24.99
Loss is not about the violent moment of loss, but its aftermath. The crushing melancholia, the endless questions of what if and why?, as well as the concepts of regret, missed opportunity, or a feeling or moment in time that can never be recaptured. But even in the midst of this gloomy scene, hope and light are born, for loss is never total. Memory lingers, a residue of evidence is left behind, and life goes on. Steven Wilson says "For me, the album is an extension of the previous release, Ghosts on Magnetic Tape, which relates to Electronic Voice Phenomena, or the idea that the dead can still communicate with the living world through recorded media. In order to try to capture this feeling I wanted the music to leave a spectral, ghostly impression, and to have an organic decaying quality, like something trying to break through from another world. To this end my musical sources were mainly 78 rpm records, a vibraphone and an upright piano. No synths or electronics were used, only organic sources or instrumentation that has been around for at least the last century." Loss consists of a 5.1 surround sound DVD-Audio disc (which also contains a higher resolution stereo version) and a standard stereo CD. The DVD-Audio disc is compatible with all DVD players, but will sound best in a player with DVD-A capabilities. And the CD of course can be played pretty much everywhere else.
Guthrie Govan/Erotic Cakes ....import CD $16.99
The re-release of Guthrie Govan's legendary 2006 debut CD. Guthrie has been called 'the greatest guitar player on the planet' by many, and alongside his recent work with Steven Wilson, Erotic Cakes - one of the classic guitar virtuoso albums of all time - is one of the reasons why. Gone are the days of scouring eBay for a dusty old copy of this rock/fusion masterclass.

The Allman Brothers Band/Brothers and Sisters (Remastered)
The Allman Brothers Band/Brothers and Sisters (Deluxe Edition) ....double CD $28.99
The Allman Brothers Band/Brothers and Sisters (Super Deluxe Edition) ....4 CD Set $64.99
The Allman Brothers Band/Brothers and Sisters ....vinyl LP $29.99
By the time they released their fifth album, Brothers and Sisters, in August 1973, the
Allman Brothers Band had experienced dizzying highs and soul-crushing lows. The group had
spent its first two years developing its formidable collective chemistry into an
unprecendented stylistic fusion that extablished it as the era's most influential American
rock act. But just as the band had achieved a hard-won commercial breakthrough with 1971's
At Fillmore East, it suffered a devastating loss with the death of Duane Allman, it's
founder, leader and musical visionary, in a motorcycle crash on October 29, 1971.
Following Duane's traumatic passing, the band regained its bearings and soldiered on with
Duane's brother, singer/organist Gregg Allman, and guitarist/vocalist Dickey Betts - now
the lone axeman in an act famous for its dual-guitar fireworks - assuming more prominent
roles in its direction. The musicians marshalled their strengths to make Brothes and
Sisters - their first album recorded completely without Duane - a decisive creative
rebirth as well as their best-selling release to date. Brothers and Sisters bested the
sales of At Fillmore East and Eat a Peach, spending five weeks at #1 and becoming the
first Allman Brothers Band release to gain Platinum sales status.
The vinyl and single CD include the original recordings remastered. Disc two of the Deluxe and Super Deluxe Editions includes a collection of nine previously unreleased jams, rehearsals and outtakes. The Super Deluxe Edition also include a third and fourth CD - Live at Winterland, September 26, 1973 - including a total of 17 tracks, 11 of of which are previously unreleased.
Pat Travers Band/Can Do ....CD $15.99
Toronto born Pat Travers has delivered one tasty release after another. From the powerhouse, rockin' '70s sounds that launched his career to a classy melodic '80s rock period to a blues phase in the '90s. In 2013, Pat isn't looking to the past for his musical future. As the second decade of the millennium dawned, Pat and his Band showed no sign of letting up. The proof of this is in the eight hands of Mr. Travers, second guitarist Kirk McKim, bassist Rodney O'Quinn and longtime sticksman, Sandy Gennaro. There is an energy in the new album that is tangible, an enjoyment that is infectious, and, quite frankly, you owe it to yourself to catch this band live whenever and wherever you can. Just don't forget to bring a bottle of your beverage of choice to enjoy!
John Scofield/Uberjam Deux ....CD $15.99
John Scofield is an artist who is almost impossible to pigeonhole. Such is his mastery of the guitar that he is comfortable in any setting whether it be jazz, blues, rock or just about any other genre; including some genres, as he demonstrates on his latest Emarcy release, Uberjam Deux, which have yet to be defined. Uberjam Deux, has been a decade in the gestation, following in direct line of descent from 2002s Grammy nominated Uberjam; not that Scofield has been inactive in the interim, far from it. There have been seven John Scofield albums in the intervening years, as well as five others on which he is a co-leader on the project. Those who loved the original Uberjam will not be disappointed by Uberjam Deux. And yet Scofield's new album is arguably even more of its time than his earlier record. According to Sco, "We used all kinds of different grooves for this record, but they are all basically dance grooves. Some might say they are from the African diaspora; there's Rhythm and Blues, Afro-beat, reggae and house, but whatever they are they are all funky. We used all these amazing world-grooves to blow over. Certain songs have been evolving over the ten years since Uberjam; Avi Bortnick had been working on some of these groove ideas and we took them and developed them into what you hear on our new record."
George Duke/Dreamweaver ....CD $17.99
George Duke describes this as his "strongest album in years." The brilliant keyboardist-composer-producer has gathered a myriad of voices and crystallizes them into a multi-faceted whole that far outweighs the sum of its parts. From bassist Christian McBride's work on the funky jam tune "Burnt Sausage" to Rachelle Ferrell's contemporary jazz singing on "Missing You," every song offers something special. The powerful centerpiece of the album, the positive and politically charged "Change the World," spotlights several up-and-coming young singers alongside some of the most prominent funk, soul, gospel and R&B artists of the last few decades: Lalah Hathaway (daughter of soul legend Donny Hathaway), Jeffrey Osborne, BeBe Winans, Lori Perry (of sister group Perri), Freddie Jackson and Terry Dexter, among others. A special bonus cut, "Ball & Chain," features a duet with Duke accompanying the late R&B singer Teena Maria - one of the last tracks she recorded before her sudden death in 2010.

Paul McCartney & Wings/Rockshow ....Blu-Ray $33.99

Frank Zappa/A Token of His Extreme ....DVD $15.99
Eagle Rock Entertainment and the Zappa Family Trust are pleased to announce the first official release of A Token of His Extreme, an original program created by Frank Zappa for TV. Recorded on August 27, 1974 at KCET in Hollywood, A Token of His Extreme features Frank Zappa with five incredibly talented band members for this extravaganza of live music.

Stereo Mixes Produced by Frank Zappa with Kerry McNabb at Paramount Studios, 1974. Mastered by Bob Ludwig, Gateway Mastering, 2009. FZ: "This was put together with my own money and my own time and it's been offered to television networks and to syndication and it has been steadfastly rejected by the American television industry. It has been shown in primetime in France and Switzerland, with marvelous results. It's probably one of the finest pieces of video work that any human being has ever done. I did it myself. And the animation that you're gonna see in this was done by a guy named Bruce Bickford, and I hope he is watching the show, because it's probably the first time that a lot of people in America got a chance to see it." - FZ appearing on the Mike Douglas Show, 1976. Because Token has never been commercially released until now, it is one of the most sought after Frank Zappa programs. The program, as edited and thoroughly tweezed & produced by FZ for Honker Home Video includes these delights: 1/2) The Dog Breath Variations/Uncle Meat 3) Montana 4) Earl Of Duke (George Duke) 5) Florentine Pogen 6) Stink-Foot 7) Pygmy Twylyte 8) Room Service 9) Inca Roads 10/11) Oh No/ Son Of Orange County 12) More Trouble Every Day 13) A Token Of My Extreme.
Deep Purple/Copenhagen 1972 ....double CD $17.99
Imagine a world without Machine Head. Imagine a Deep Purple set-list without Smoke On
The Water. Imagine a time when the music business had yet to become a vast multi-national
conglomerate. This was the primordial landscape on March 1st, 1972 when Deep Purple took
to the stage at the Kobenhavns Boldklub (KB) Hallen in Copenhagen. It was a time of no
boundaries or restrictions, no blueprints or formulas. Rock music wasn't exactly in its
infancy, but there were still plenty of new territories to explore, mountains to climb,
peaks to conquer. It was a time when anything was possible. And Purple were on a mission
to prove it. Purple had completed their Machine Head album at the tail-end of 1971
but at the time of this recording it hadn't arrived in the shops yet. Nevertheless,
their show contained three songs Highway Star, Lazy and Space Truckin from that legendary
release. It must have been a mind-boggling hang on a minute, make that life-changing
experience, to be part of the Danish audience this stellar night.
Everything about this recording is spontaneous and un-choreographed, loose and lethal, teetering and tempestuous. An explosive combination of brinkmanship and barely controlled chaos. Which, in a lip-synched and auto-tuned modern-day music world, comes as a breath of fresh air. The high spots just keep on coming. Jon Lord s heroic keyboard playing on Lazy, the mischievous guitar-vocal sparring between Blackmore and Gillan on Strange Kind Of Woman, the positively progressive vibe of The Mule, before Ian Paice's epic drum solo kicks in, Gillan showing exactly why he gained the proud title of silver-throated screamer on Child In Time and Glover's often under acknowledged bass-lines underpinning each song like a network of steel girders. The list goes on... As if that isn't enough, the reissue also includes three bonus live tracks Strange Kind Of Woman, Smoke On The Water and Space Truckin recorded in New York (at Hofstra University, Hempstead, Long Island, to be precise) on May 29th, 1973. Not to mention an insightful interview piece from Purple's 1971 Australian tour. Copenhagen 1972 is the second of a 10 releases spanning re-issue series of Deep Purple.
Deep Purple/Now What?! ....CD $14.99
Deep Purple/Now What?! [Deluxe Edition] ....CD + DVD $19.99
Eight years after the release of Rapture Of The Deep, following many rumors later revealed to be unfounded, Deep Purple, one of the most important and influential British rock bands of all time, have confirmed the release of an album completely made of new studio material. After various songwriting sessions in Europe, the band recorded and mixed the album in Nashville with producer Bob Ezrin (whose impressive hit records include: Pink Floyd's The Wall, Alice Cooper and many others). The album is rumored to be the perfect match from the original spirit of '70s Purple with a fresh and modern production. The deluxe edition is being released with a bonus track and a bonus DVD featuring Deep Purple in conversation plus additional audio material. Line-up includes Ian Gillan (vocals), Ian Paice (drums), Roger Glover (bass), Steve Morse (guitar) and Don Airey (keyboards)

On the new album the band that defined heavy metal picks up immediately where they left off with eight sprawling songs (five of them are over eight minutes in length) that possess every ounce of the maniacal vitality of the Grammy-winning, Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductees' trailblazing work in the '70s. Songs such as End of the Beginning, Loner, Dear Father and Age of Reason reinforce 13's testament to the enduring relevance of Black Sabbath's long-running reign. The deluxe edition includes three bonus audio tracks. 11 tracks total.6 panel softpak with 3 pockets and a lenticular cover. Produced by Rick Rubin (seven-time Grammy winner, two of those as Producer of the Year), 13 will be released on Vertigo/Republic in the U.S.
Moody Blues/Threshold of a Dream-Live at the IoW Festival 1970 ....DVD + CD $19.99
The Moody Blues were formed in Birmingham in the early sixties and were immediately successful, going to No.1 with their second single Go Now. In 1970 The Moody Blues were at their creative and commercial peak. After reinventing themselves from their R&B roots to a much more sophisticated sound, between 1967 and 1970 they released five albums, four of which hit the Top 5 in the UK with two of them going to No.1. They enjoyed similar success in the USA where four of the albums hit the Top 20 and the other was just outside. At the end of August 1970, shortly after the release of their album A Question Of Balance, The Moody Blues took to the stage of the Isle Of Wight Festival in front of an audience estimated at over half a million.
Moody Blues/Live at Montreux 1991 ....DVD + CD $19.99
The Moody Blues were formed in Birmingham in the early sixties and were immediately successful, going to No.1 with their second single Go Now. As the sixties progressed their music evolved into a fuller, more progressive sound and with the arrival of Justin Hayward and John Lodge the classic line-up came together and produced the masterpiece Days Of Future Passed, which contained their classic hit single Nights in White Satin and Tuesday Afternoon. This propelled the band to a new level of success which they have sustained ever since. This show from July of 1991 is the band's only Montreux appearance to date. With a line-up including John Lodge, Justin Hayward, Ray Thomas and Graeme Edge they made it a very special night with inspired performances of all their classic hits.

June Tabor-Iain Ballamy-Huw Warren/Quercus ....CD $17.99
Quercus means 'oak' in Latin and the roots of this particular tree dig deep into British folk music, while leaves and branches reach upward to embrace jazz-inspired lyrical improvising. The trio features the venerable English singer June Tabor whose dark voice has an uncanny ability to underscore the emotional essence of a ballad: "As I get older, I understand more the depths of sorrow and joy that made the song," she has said. Tabor, who was recently voted BBC Folk Awards Singer Of The Year, is joined in the Quercus project by Welsh jazz pianist and composer Huw Warren, and by English saxophonist/composer Iain Ballamy, well-known to ECM listeners as co-leader of the band Food and well-known to fans of Bill Bruford as one of the orignal members of Bruford's incredible Earthworks ensemble. This is the first Quercus album but the trio has existed already for five years, patiently developing its unique idiomatic blend.
Keith Jarrett Trio/Somewhere ....CD $17.99
ECM - Now in its 30th year, the Keith Jarrett Trio with double bassist Gary Peacock and drummer Jack DeJohnette is widely considered, as the NY Times recently remarked, to have set the gold standard for jazz groups. And this sparkling concert recording from 2009 is issued to mark a milestone anniversary. The Somewhere in which the Standards trio find themselves is Lucerne, Switzerland with a performance both exploratory and in-the-tradition. The Neue Zurcher Zeitung headlined its review of the show Kontrollierte Ekstase controlled ecstasy an apt metaphor for a set that begins in improvisational Deep Space modulates into Miles Davis Solar, soars through the standards Stars Fell On Alabama and Between The Devil And The Deep Blue Sea and climaxes with an extended romp through West Side Story, as Bernsteins Somewhere and Tonight are bridged by the freely associative Jarrett original Everywhere.
The Wrong Object/After the Exhibition ....CD $14.99
Belgian jazz-prog heavyweights, The Wrong Object, make a spectacular return to center stage, with a studio album of brilliant original compositions - and epic proportions! The band's previous CD "Stories from the Shed" is one of the most critically acclaimed albums in the MoonJune catalog. After a five-year absence, After The Exhibition showcases a variety of fresh, powerful material, masterfully delivered by a capable, cohesive new lineup. With their aesthetics still rooted in an array of storied inspirational models, The Wrong Object ventures further into hybrid musical territories - pushing the boundaries of progressive jazz, rock and contemporary music, yielding results that are as stunning as they are superb. Perhaps the influence of the late Frank Zappa has never been more apparent. The songs continually weave, duck, dart, and 'stop on a dime,' while exhibiting the "controlled reckless abandon" and a similar zany, humorous approach to both harmony and melodic/thematic motifs, akin to that which characterized his work. This is a herculean effort; one that goes a long way to filling the very noticeable long-standing void left in the wake of Zappa's departure.
Dialeto/The Last Tribe ....CD $14.99
The Last Tribe is a "take no prisoners" progressive rock steamroller. From the opening chords, guitarist Nelson Coelho gives clear evidence that the band is ready to tread over new ground - and fully prepared to take it by force! Dialeto's long-awaited international debut shatters the power trio template: visiting styles and textures that could have been just as 'at home' forty years ago as they are today, while remaining undeniably contemporary and accessible. Quirky, unpredictable and overflowing with power and energy, the trio rips through an original set of barn-burners that defy categorization, but are fresh, compelling and masterfully delivered. The band is as tight as it is explosive - never allowing the listener to get comfortable in one spot for too long, before catapulting them into their next frenzied foray. They deliver the sonic goods in an enthralling, cohesive package. Coelho's grandiose guitar work is always firmly at the forefront: the music guided confidently by a seasoned player possessed of intrinsic melodic sensibilities, but unafraid to follow those senses along paths previously untread. His tones are monstrous; his playing is flawless, instinctive and full of passion and fire.The Last Tribe conjures images of what some of progressive rock's most vaunted acts might have achieved, had they been as daring and self-assured. Moments of sheer creative brilliance abound on this fantastic outing, Dialeto's first offering for MoonJune Records.This is a scorching effort that will win over fans with its rare combination of power, grace, ambition and spontaneity, and showcases the brilliant Nelson Coelho as one of progressive music's most vital new voices on guitar. Crank up this album and prepare to be blown away!!
Allan Holdsworth/FLATTire ....CD $14.99
MoonJune Records is once again proud to re-release another classic Allan Holdsworth album, FLATTire. The album is subtitled "Music from a Non-Existent Movie," and easily qualifies as one of his most mysterious, yet introspective works. Originally released in 2001, the album had a small print run, received little notice and no fanfare. Comprised predominantly of performances played on his beloved SynthAxe, Holdsworth delivers a set of stunningly beautiful, emotional tunes. "I had just gone through a difficult divorce and was experiencing a lot of pain and feeling very lost and introspective," Holdsworth said, when reflecting upon the circumstances which preceeded his making the album."I had always wanted to compose music for movies, but had never been given the opportunity," he elaborated. "Whenever I watch a movie I like to imagine what sort of music I might compose for a scene, to create a particular kind of atmosphere, because when I see something, I hear something. So, while recording FLATTire I tried to create these imaginary movies in my head and then write themes for them."
In the same way that the more impressionistic and even orchestral-sounding compositions on FLATTire differ significantly from those on Holdsworth's other albums, his performances and even his approach to playing his instrument also differed. "Most of the things I played weren't particularly technical in the sense of requiring exceptional dexterity," he explained. "They were all about the emotion and staying true to the concept of supporting visual images. That's very different than making a normal record, where the focus is just on a piece of music and soloing within that." While for more than a decade the original release has lingered in relative obscurity, this re-release finally provides a unique, essential work - from one of progressive music's greatest masters - with the attention and distribution it deserves. The album is presented in digipak format, with some new, engaging liner notes written by Guitar Player Magazine's prolific writer and editor (and MoonJune Records' recording artist), Barry Cleveland (portions of which were used herein). Featuring a guest appearance on two tracks by the late, great jazz bassist, Dave Carpenter, FLATTire is an album completely unique in the Allan Holdsworth discography - highlighting an entirely different side of his creative persona, as well as his genius as an engineer and producer. Don't miss out on this intimate personal statement from one of progressive music's finest treasures.
Kidney Brothers/Coal Tattoo ....CD $18.99
Contemporaries of Pere Ubu and best known for their work with the Numbers Band, Bob and Jack Kidney were also key members of David Thomas' late '90s Mirror Man extravaganza. Early members of the Ohio generation - which included Rocket from the Tombs, Devo, Pere Ubu, Tin Huey, The Dead Boys and the Waitresses - the Numbers Band (aka 15 60 75) was formed in 1969, in Kent. They quickly became established as a local fixture, playing for four nights a week in a series of local clubs. With periodic changes of personnel, they continued to do this over the following decades, still performing sporadically today. 'This group' David Thomas wrote, 'inspired everyone, regenerated everyone, and was a nagging doubt in the back of everyone's minds....the Numbers are better than you can ever hope for.' On this CD, Bob and Jack play their own kind of stripped down, guitar-based, narrative songs - stained dark with deep, bluesy roots - and a gravitas born of five decades of concentration and club audiences. In 1990, Robert Kidney survived a kidney transplant, and in 2012 he was awarded the Cleveland Arts Prize Lifetime Achievement Award for Music.
Jon Rose/Rosin ....3 CD Box Set $54.99
To mark Jon Rose's 60th birthday, we are releasing this 3 CD box of previously unreleased works ranging from radio documentary and radio fiction to virtuoso performances - taken from all manner of contexts, using both the acoustic violin and the hyperstring interactive bow system. There's a remarkable improvised violin concerto (the rest of the mini-orchestras's parts are written out), as well as collaborations with Australian locals (multiple brassbands, musical whips, lounge pianists, aboriginal choirs, orchestrated corrugated iron, musical gum leaves, auctioneers, chainsaws, singing dingos, bowed saw orchestras, and so on). There's a duo with George - an Albert's Lyrebird, and concerts with contemporary ensembles and heavy earthmoving equipment. It comes accompanied by a great deal of extraordinary film - and some purely audio - material collected together on a supplementary data disc. Plus there's a generous booklet of texts, documents and photographs and, of course, a souvenir sample of bow-hair.
Paolo Angeli/Sale Quanto Basta ....CD $18.99
Welcome to Paulo's sixth release for ReR, an extraordinary collection of pieces that explore the full range of his highly modified, extended and prepared Sardinian guitar. And although it's just him and electricity, it seldom sounds like fewer than three people playing. There are twelve fine compositions, each as crafted as a short novel, and beautifully recorded. Paulo's is a music that pretty much defies genre or category; accessible, experimental, tuneful, tactile and ambient - with a folk root, a rock inflection and a contemporary outlook.
Mir/Shock Your Money Maker ....CD $18.99
Mir, a final bastion of noise, has been working hard throughout Europe since their inception in 2005. Stylistically, they work in the sonic worlds somewhere between the primordial oozings of Industrial Rock, No Wave, Japan Noise, Anarchic Grind and Drone. This live album was recorded in Basel, Switzerland, and then produced and mixed by Alex Buess (God, Ice), who got some fairly strange press opinions from the pre-release demos he sent: "Perfect dance music for Klingons"..."Experiments in terror"...."Like a road trip through a Napalm ravaged tea plantation"... While such hyperbole is usually associated with conceptual over- indulgence and is mostly unjust, in the case of "Shock Your Money Maker" this simply does not ring true. The road that this band has embarked upon is truly unique and bizarre because, against all odds, it manages somehow to re-asses the term, "experimental."
|Alvin Lee & Ten Years Later/Live at Rockpalast 1978 ....import CD + DVD $31.99||The Blues Band/Live at Rockpalast 1980 ....import CD + DVD $31.99|
|Climax Blues Band/Live at Rockpalast 1976 ....import CD + DVD $31.99||Mickey Jupp/Live at Rockpalast 1979 ....import CD + DVD $31.99|

Pete Brown & Phil Ryan Psoulchedelia/Perils of Wisdom ....import CD $19.99
Renowned Cream lyricist Pete Brown is back with a brand new album. This is the fourth record by Pete Brown and Phil Ryan, who have worked together on and off since Phil joined Pete's band Piblokto in 1970. This time they have used their working band, Psoulchedelia, for this latest venture. It is an organic mixture of original songs, with elements of soul, blues and jazz, with featured virtuoso instrumentalists Annie Whitehead, Lee Goodall and Alan Weekes. Not by any means a retro record, 'Perils' is soulful, lyrical, humorous and angrily political by turns. Standout tracks include the mournful 'Eva's Blues' (predicting an Amy Winehouse style tragedy, but written three years before that event) and the hilarious and rather rude 'Motormother' (is a car a male or female organ? That's the question for the listener!).
Sparks/Pulling Rabbits Out of a Hat ....import CD $21.99
Conjuring fresh and original material out of thin air can be as tricky as pulling rabbits out of a hat. But that's just what Ron and Russell Mael of Sparks have been doing throughout their extraordinary career. The talented duo came to fame with 'This Town Ain't Big Enough For The Both Of Us' in 1974 and went to create many more hit singles and extraordinary albums. 'Pulling Rabbits Out Of A Hat' is a fine example of their post-disco period, when they were moving into the realms of novelty electronica pop. And if that sounds like a convoluted description of their art, that's because Sparks have always been difficult to categorise - so why bother categorising! Just enjoy these eleven quirky and entrancing performances from a 1984 album that has Ron Mael let loose on hi-tech synthesizers and Russell singing with all his high pitched charm. Check out 'Pretending To Be Drunk' and 'Kiss Me Quick,' with lyrics devoted to the odder aspects of love relationships, and tune into the freaky instrumental track 'Sparks In The Dark.' The CD has detailed liner notes, original artwork and is expanded with 5 bonus tracks. Our verdict? Big hat. Bigger rabbit!! Booklet with authoritative liner notes by respected author and journalist Chris Welch. Expertly remastered - superb sound - top quality reproduction. The best in the business!

Jean-Pascal Boffo/Le Chant des Fleurs ....import CD $21.99
Jean-Pascal BOFFO was the first artist signed by Musea, when the French Progressive rock label started in 1985. This incredible guitar player from Eastern France created a beautiful discography displaying a rarely equaled diversity and brilliance. "Le Chant Des Fleurs" can be seen as an overview of the artist's career, renewed and embellished throughout the fourteen tracks. These songs of the flowers evolve between intimate and acoustic moods, to lyrical and orchestral passages. Wonderful!
Lazuli/Live @ L'Abeille Rode ....import DVD (PAL Region 0) $29.99
Somewhere between progressive rock, song, world-music and electro, the atypical, dreamy and researched music of Lazuli takes us far from the beaten tracks with a quite unusual band. This French group uses Chapman Stick, Warr Guitar, marimbas, vibraphone, percussions, guitars, voice...an instrumentation not unlike Peter Gabriel's in his early years, when his guitar player was named Robert Fripp. And that's not by chance! The Leode is also played here, invented and constructed in only one copy by Claude Leonetti, being the surprising mix of a guitar, a synthesizer, a melodic saw and a Martenot wave. This instrument controls a sampling machine and a multi-effect system through a MIDI module. The instrument must be played with only one hand: the musician unfortunately lost an arm in a motorbike accident when he was young. Lazuli conceives songs like pictures, mixing colours, depicting the world or repainting it. Words question the wounds of today. The ethereal, outlandish voice swarms with puns describing man in every forming and deforming. Lazuli will enchant and bewitch you.
Alms/Beyond ....import CD $21.99
Alms is a musical project created by the Spanish composer and multi-instrumentalist Aitor Lucena. "Beyond," his debut album, is a musical and very personal adaptation of the "journey" after death, and revolves around the three mythological characters Hypnos, Thanatos and Caronte (Charon). Pure symphonic prog-rock, in which you'll appreciate influences from ELP to Mike Oldfield, from classical music to heavy metal, and also a strong influence from Italian progressive rock bands such as Il Balletto di Bronzo, Le Orme or Banco del Mutuo Soccorso. Doubtlessly, it will astonish classic prog-rock lovers.
Gerard Maimone/Onka Ponka ....import CD $21.99
In the Seventies, Gerard Maimone founded the jazz-rock band Spheroe, with guitarist Michel Perez, bassist Rido Bayonne and drummer Patrick "Cactus" Garel. During the next decade, Angel-Maimone Enterprise, in collaboration with singer Olivier Angele, made strong impressions and gained the cult status within the French rock scene with numerous shows, records, videos and movies. Since the nineties, our man is pursuing his solo career of composing for the visual (over seventy scores for theatre, dance or cinema), as well as performing live, exploring the various esthetical styles that he likes to share in his own atypical ways: from tango to jazz, oriental melodies to opera lieder. The new millenium has been synonymous for Gerard Maimone with a more pronounced return to the jazz idiom.
Nemrud/Ritual ....import CD $21.99
Despite showing a passport not so common in the genre, Turkish band Nemrud develops an Anglo-Saxon type of progressive rock, of the highest quality. One might even be reminded of Eloy's "Ocean" opus. This is no surprise then to learn that the leader Mert Gocay is a close friend of Frank Bornemann! It's a very sophisticated music, based on seventies sounds but with an excellent production. Floating keyboards sounds, guitar arpeggios and a sense of slowness obviously recall Eloy and Pink Floyd, but there are other influences, like Camel, Genesis, Jethro Tull. Here's a highly spiritual music, carefully composed and played.
Radiation 10/Bossa Super Nova ....import CD $24.99
One of the surprising specificities about Radiation 10 is its orchestral attributes, compiling punch and flexibility of a small band with sound wealth of a massive orchestra. Its uncommon instrumentation evolves between all-electric and acoustics. Radiation 10 claims a music with no leader and no border, mixing jazz, progressive rock, chamber music, industrial, with huge tendence to improvising. The multiplicity of instrumental combinations allows a free and inventive musical purpose.
Poor Genetic Material/A Day in June ....import CD $24.99
Poor Genetic Material is a five-man German symphonic progressive band with an exceptional lead singer from the United Kingdom in Philip Griffiths, whose father Martin was the singer for Beggars Opera. After their successful adaptation of William Shakespeare's "The Tempest" on their previous album "Island Noises," Poor Genetic Material spent two years to develop another literature-inspired project which also gave them the opportunity to realize a plan they had been brewing for quite a while: that of bringing together Phil and his dad, Martin, as lead singers on one album. On "A Day in June" son and dad share vocals on three songs, and each of them has two lead tracks. James Joyce's novel "Ulysses," on which the new album is based, provides an ideal frame of reference for this collaboration in that it both tells of father-son-relationships and opens up a wide array of themes and motifs to play around with. Apart from the resulting lyrics, which are refreshingly different from the run-of-the-mill fare of much of today's rock music, the album features what over the years has matured into the band's distinctive musical style. Excellent playing combined with inventive songwriting went into creating tracks that range from the delicately melodious to the more noisily progressive rock, from accessible tunes to quirkily complex arrangements. All in all, "A Day in June" shows Poor Genetic Material at the height of their creative powers.
Jupiter Society/From Endangered to Extinct ....import CD $24.99
After four years of silence Jupiter Society is back. Led by Chairman Carl Westholm, Jupiter Society is now releasing its third album "From Endangered to Extinct." This is an isolated apocalyptic story about the last hours of humanity...more than a sequel to the previous two albums. With a slight change of crew and a transformation in composition, it is darker and harder than its predecessors. With members from Carptree, Krux, Candlemass, Soilwork, Opeth, and Evergrey this is one more step foreward for Symphonic Sci fi Metal. The end of the world, but Jupiter Society still at the beginning.
The Samurai of Prog/Secrets Of Disguise ....import double CD $27.99
The multi-national band The Samurai of Prog is back with a double-album, putting its own spin on classic progressive rock tunes plus new compositions. Performances and recordings are of the highest quality, and the CDs are accompanied by a beautiful forty-page booklet. This is a lovely homage to many of progressive rock music's great works, some well-known and some lesser-known gems. We also see the band maturing into their own identity, as this, their second album, finds them penning fresh original tunes as well. The Samurai of Prog is joined by a bevy of guest artists, making "Secrets Of Disguise" a rich and textured feast for the ears. Guests include Jon Davison (Yes, Glass Hammer), Roine Stolt (The Flower Kings), Guy LeBlanc (Camel), Robert Webb (England), David Myers (The Musical Box), Mark Trueack (Unitopia), Phideaux Xavier, Kamran Alan Shikoh (Glass Hammer), Linus Kase (Anglagard), Mento Hevia (Crack), Lalo Hubere (Nexus), Srdjan Brankovic, Akos Bogati-Bokor (Yesterdays), Stefano Vicarelli, Risto Salmi, Octavio Stampalia (Jinetes Negros), Matthijs Herder, Andrew Marshall (Willowglass)... And many more!
Faton Cahen Quintet/Amalgama - Live au Grand Casino de Forges Les Eaux ....import DVD $27.99
Francois "Faton" Cahen and Francois Causse are friends since the seventies, crossing ways through bands like Magma, Gong ZAO, Ethnic Trio with Christian Vander, Didier Malherbe, Yochk'o Seffer and many more. After having played this music at the Satellit Cafe in Paris under the name of Don Faton, it was then recorded in 2010 in Francois Causse's studio in Massy, using the computer technology, without losing the warmth of live music. No more preconceived ideas about style, but simply a process where each musician brings his ideas and feeling. Then, comes the selection of the best moments, which explains the title "Amalgama," a word coming from classical arab language, which means fusion of metals. Tracks are build step by step, with generous unexpected guests, and this process takes some time. This is what is called fusion music. (The format is not given so best to assume it is PAL [which can be played on your computer if not your DVD player]).
Vermilion Sands/Spirits of the Sun ....import CD $21.99
Vermillion Sands is a Japanese quintet with a standard line-up for a progressive rock band (bass, drums, guitar & keyboards). The feminine vocals sung by Yoko Royama strongly evoke Annie Haslam, whereas the musicians perform a delicate, elegant and refined music close to something the British musicians of Renaissance could have issued in their heyday. This true legend of the Japanese scene of the eighties makes an unexpected come-back today. "Spirits Of The Sun" is a collection of pastoral paintings, in the spirit of the first album by Renaissance, recorded half-live and half in the studio. Many guests are featured here, such as violinist extraordinaire Akihisa Tsuboy on the live-track "Don't Forget Your Love Mind." This wonderful piece of art was almost finished when female singer Yoko Royama sadly passed away of cancer. The composer of all tracks, keyboards player Masahiro Yamada pays tribute to his "dying beauty" with thrilling instrumentals like "Autumn" or "Seven Clouds." A splendid return!
Crack the Sky/All Access ....import DVD-NTSC $29.99
This is the first authorized film production of the band ever. The main portion of this concert DVD was filmed during Crack The Sky's performance headlining the 2008 Rites of Spring Festival in Philadelphia, PA. Also included is an additional hour of material from the 2008 New Hazlett Theater show in Pittsburgh, PA. It includes songs from their catalog of over 20 records from the past 30 years.

Crack the Sky/Machine ....import CD $24.99
Crack the Sky/The Sale ....import CD $24.99
Robert-John Godfrey/The Art of Melody ....import CD $24.99
Robert-John Godfrey is the leader of The Enid and on this album, he performs a comparable music. The Art Of Melody is an album of romantic music for piano and orchestra accessible to all, yet wholly uncompromising in its content. Of the eight compositions, some are rooted in Robert John Godfrey's past containing themes and motifs to which he has often returned.
Gerard/Keyboards Triangle II ....import CD $21.99
Gerard is not only a French-flavoured first name! It's also the name chosen by the Japanese keyboards wizard Toshio Egawa (Novela, Sheherezade, Earthshaker...), at the time he created his own band at the beginning of the eighties. The beginnings of the band were marked by an elegant and elaborated symphonic music relying on the progressive rock played by Yes, Genesis and friends during the previous decade. One may remember that, at the end of the second millenium, Gerard invited its female alter-ego Ars Nova to jam on some famous themes composed by some of the big names of the international progressive rock scene. The first "Keyboards Triangle" payed tribute to such bands as Emerson Lake & Palmer, Rick Wakeman, Banco and Trace. Some years after, Toshio Egawa and his accomplices decided to add another milestone, under the moniker Gerard alone. "Keyboards Triangle - Volume Two" was dedicated to three major bands of the genre: Emerson Lake & Palmer, U.K. and King Crimson. Only published in Japan in the year 2002, "Keyboards Triangle - Volume Two" is now internationally available, thanks to the Musea label. And as the tradition has it, the five original tracks are complimented with a bonus-track, the fabulous "In The Dead Of Night."
|Anyone's Daughter/Anyone's Daughter (Remastered with bonus) ....import CD $24.99||Anyone's Daughter/In Blau (Remastered with bonus) ....import CD $24.99|
|Anyone's Daughter/Live (Remastered with bonus) ....import double CD $29.99||Anyone's Daughter/Neue Sterne (Remastered with bonus) ....import CD $24.99||Anyone's Daughter/Piktors Verwandlungen (Remastered with bonus) ....import CD $24.99|
Anyone's Daughter were one of the late seventies masters of symphonic progressive rock. Often compared to the musicians of Camel, those four Germans share with their British counterparts this particular liking for ethereal melodies filled with subtle guitar solos (Uwe Karpa) and warm vocals (Harald Bareth). The difference, and this is quite evident, is the language in which they sing: they use in majority the German tongue, and this gives back a specific identity to this band.
Dificil Equilibrio/La Perdua ....import CD $21.99
Dificil Equilibrio is an excellent trio (guitar, bass and drums-percussions) from Spain that plays a powerful instrumental progressive rock influenced by King Crimson, Van der Graaf Generator, Peter Hammill and even Magma.
Yuka & Chronoship/Dino Rocket Oxygen ....import CD $21.99
Yuka & Chronoship is a Japanese progressive rock band formed in 2009 by keyboardist, vocalist and composer Yuka Funakoshi, along with three leading studio musicians: bassist Shun Taguchi, guitarist Takashi Miyazawa and drummer Ikko Tanaka. Highly reminiscent of late '70s progressive rock, the sound of the band is reputed for its philosophical depth, lyrical brilliance, and technical virtuosity. Japan, a country consisting of four main islands surrounded by the sea, have long benefited, but at times greatly suffered, from water during ancient times. The debut album "Water Reincarnation" depicts such an ever-recurring water cycle. From an almost cosmic perspective and with technical and musical richness, this grandiose concept-album portrays the reincarnation of water: the rain turned into a river, a river poured into the sea, the sea forming clouds, and clouds turned back into the rain. Two years later, the Japanese band strikes back with "Dino Rocket Oxygen" illustrated by a logo designed by none other than Roger Dean, this fantastic second album offers three philosophical epics and mixes symphonic rock, jazz-rock, new-age and ethnic music.
Ataraxia/Adolescence of an Ancient Warrior ....import CD $21.99
Ataraxia started its career on the Japanese progressive rock scene along with Outer Limits at the beginning of the eighties. Here you have some kind of nippon-flavoured neo progressive, that's reminiscent of the music played by IQ during that era. Bassist Hideaki Murata's vocals strongly relates to the theatrical school led by Peter Gabriel. Considering all this, it's no surprise that "Adolescence of an Ancient Warrior," originally released by the band in 1986, was regarded as a true achievement in the path of Genesis.
Yiannis Glezos/The Roses of Pieria ....import CD $21.99
Yiannis Glezos was born in Athens where he grew up. He quit the School of Economics & Finance to devote himself to music. His first album was released back in 1968 and it was a collection of art-folk songs of his. Since then, he has released eleven albums with more or less complicated music structures that varied from art-folk song to chamber music and progressive rock on poetry. Published in the year 2013 on the Musea Parallele label, "The Roses of Pieria - Instrumental Music Inspired by Ancient Greek Lyric Poetry" contains twenty-one instrumental pieces and one song. Aside the rock band, additional instruments were used like trumpet, violin, viola, oboe, clarinet or traditional Greek instruments like Cretan lyre, Pontiac lyre, which give an exceptional Greek or even archaic color to the project. It is difficult to define the music of the album, but there are certainly Greek traditional music, progressive rock structures and the so called entehno (Greek art folk-song) melodic passages. The recursion to ancient Greek poetry signifies a conscious reference to the pure lyricism, as an artistic protest against the roughness of modern life and the absence of values and pure sentiments.
Apocalypse/The Bridge of Light ....import DVD $24.99
Apocalypse was the first Brazilian band signed by Musea. More than the usual quality of progressive rock with symphonic influences, it delivers us those forgotten feelings like peace, love and compassion. "The Bridge Of Light" has been captured live in front of an enthusiastic Brazilian audience in november 2006. You just need to listen to the two opening songs to realize how good this band is: the first one gets closer to the best of Deep Purple, whereas the second one strongly evokes Fish era Marillion. And what about the remaining tracks? They just sound like...Apocalypse! NTSC 99 minutes.
Tolerance/When Time Stops ....import CD $21.99
Tolerance is a Venezuelan band formed on April 2003 by singer Ricardo Figueroa and drummer Rodrigo Nunez. After several line-up changes and ten years of hard work, the group finally recorded its debut album, "When Time Stops," on the Musea Parallele label. Here's a blend of hard-rock, funk, heavy-metal, classical music and electronic sounds, full of musicianship defined by overwhelming drumming, powerful guitar riffs, clever keyboards arrangements and remarkable vocals. The lyrics are related to topics such as existence, science, politics and environmental issues. Some of the most important band's influences are Deep Purple, Rush, Steve Vai, Magellan, Planet X, Living Colour and Dream Theater among others. "When Time Stops" was recorded and mixed in Caracas, Venezuela, and mastered in Nashville, Tennessee. Some Venezuelan guest musicians took part of this recording, including three bassists.
Sunrise Auranaut/Childhood's End? ....import CD $21.99
Sunrise Auranaut is an instrumental progressive rock band, led by Russian multi-instrumentalist Vitaly Kiselev. Release on the Musea Parallèle label, "Childhood's End?" reflects the musical breath of the progressive rock of the seventies made popular by the likes of Yes, Emerson Lake & Palmer, Eloy, Camel or Manfred Mann's Earth Band. Here's a contemporary personal vision of childhood, illustrated with the beauty of nature, boundless inner freedom, a sea of energy, vivid feelings and images, mystical fear, mystery, magic and belief in miracles. Throughout the album, quiet and peaceful parts alternate with fast and energetic sequences, linked with a cosmic inspiration. Keyboards and electric guitar rule, leaving room for acoustic guitar though. All this is combined with a powerful rhythm section.
Jack Dupon/Jesus l'Aventurier ....import CD $24.99
There's no need to search for Jack Dupon in the civil registration, because that legendary character doesn't exist! We're talking of a young French band here, made of four crazy people, flegmatic adventurers of the imaginary, improvisers and storytellers, polite and rude, full of oppositions, contradictions... In one word: alive. Their music is like their existence: out of styles and boundaries, far away from the usual technical show-off, their performances tell the story of the crazy Jack Dupon: manitou and mentor, big brother, a genious criminal of thousand masks...
Motoi Sakuraba/What's Up? ....import CD $21.99
Keyboards virtuoso Motoi Sakuraba performs a truly majestic and melodious symphonic rock. He has a special taste for rich and refined sonorities and for energetic, emphatic and luxuriant moments. From his beginnings as a solo artist, Motoi Sakuraba alternates between symphonic progressive rock opuses and video games music, a domain where his reputation is now big. This makes us realise that these two universes are not so far away. "What's Up?" makes a welcome return to the Japanese school of progressive rock. Here are fourteen tracks between energy and illustrative music, worthy of the master.
Yochk'o Seffer/From New York to Budapest ....import CD $32.99
Yochk'o SEFFER always created varied and interesting works during his long of career, be it with Magma, Zao, Neffesh Music, his duos with Francois "Faton" Cahen or all alone. In each of his records, the French saxophone-player tries to pay tribute to his Hungarian roots, with jazz-rock music close to Zao, but with free tendencies.
Talc/Talc ....import CD $21.99
It was in Lausanne during the '90s that Vincent Verselle and Herve Baumgartner started playing with Nicolas Julliard (aka Fauve) in a pop-rock quintet called "The Unexpected." When the band split up, they decided to carry on under the form of a bass & drum duo. They become a trio in 2009 when Antonin Wiser joined them, giving birth to Talc under its current form. Two years of intense creation process enable them to record a demo CD containing a few compositions, rapidly followed by their first home-recorded LP. At this time they drew the attention of Musea Records for their first CD. As a rock trio, Talc created a musical world swinging between electric energy and subtle architecture, complexity and spontaneity. Its compositions revisit the progressive and psychedelic rock, mixing it with contemporary post-rock laced with a light touch of jazz-fusion.
Stephane Lemaire/Tentatives d'Envol ....import CD $21.99
The keyboard player of the reformed Moving Gelatine Plates this album contains different soundscapes where keyboards, synthesizers, tap guitar, concrete sounds, noises and voices are blended. Inspiration is definitely coming from minimalists American music, especially the works of masters such as Philip Glass, Steve Reich or Terry Riley. Robert Fripp & Brian Eno's experimentations also left a mark here, as well as Klaus Schulze or Scandinavian jazz.
Franc Albir/Hoc ....import CD $21.99
Franc Albir is a veteran Catalan band formed in the mid-eighties. They have released very few records, this is their fourth one, because they take much care about their productions trying to find the best in terms of sound and writting. Their influences come from the classic British progrock such as Genesis, Camel or Marillion, but they also like to explore some other fields, introducing some hints of jazz, Mediterranean sounds, and powerhouse passages close to metal.

Jean-Paul Prat/Light ....import CD $21.99
Surrounded by a large line-up (bass, three guitars, five brass instruments, keyboards, flute, percussions, piano & vocals), French drummer Jean-Paul Prat presents an instrumental, powerful symphonic work. The recurent themes are perfectly orchestrated and their many variations are full of melodic richness. The growing bass and brass instruments are close to Weidorje, but this music shows much more contrast and violent sequences follow quietest passages. Originally recorded as an eponymous one-title album clocking at more than 40 minutes, "Masal" (1982) is now reissued by the Musea label with complete biography and four bonus-tracks. Those have been recorded in 1985 and 1990 with a smaller line-up, but with similar inspiration.

Published in 2012 on the Musea Parallele label, "Desnudo" showcases the sensivity of an unique musician as well as Light in 2013. Don't miss this beautiful piano solo album!
