Hi, all!

Today's newsletter is a special sale newsletter. It could be described as a 'stash sale.' However, it's not my stash. I've chosen to call this sale "The Anonymous Collection." Anonymous, who is one of your fellow Artist Shop Newsletter subscribers, has decided that he now has more music in his collection than he can ever listen to in a lifetime and has decided to break the ties to a large part of it while donating a portion of the proceeds to charity [and hopefully make room for new CDs!]. In his mother's memory, part of that will go to the American Cancer Society. Also benefiting will be the St. Jude Children's Reasearch Hospital and the Unicef International Children's Fund.

Below you'll find a list of books and CDs for sale. Anonymous is a real progressive music fan and the majority of the CDs from his collection are imports. As you browse the CDs, it may occur to you that the list is not what you might call 'alphabetically diverse.' Basically this is a VERY large collection and I've only made my way through the As, Bs and Cs. And I haven't even gotten to the DVDs yet!!! This will take quite a while to go through, but here's the start. Below is a list of books and CDs being let go at a nice price. You'll also find this list posted at http://www.artist-shop.com/sale.htm .  I should mention that for each title below, there is only ONE copy available.   So if you see something you want, let me know right away.

If you'd like to order anything you see in today's newsletter, you'll find ordering options at http://www.artist-shop.com/order.htm . Or if you're a regular customer and want to use the info from your last order, feel free to drop me an e-mail with your selections.

Bakerloo - Bakerloo: Remastered & Expanded Edition CD $26.95
A newly re-mastered and expanded edition of the classic self-titled 1969 album by BAKERLOO. This Progressive Blues outfit formed in Staffordshire in 1968 and comprised Dave "Clem" Clempson (vocals, guitar, harmonica, keyboards), Keith Baker (bass) and Terry Poole (drums). Originally known as The Bakerloo Blues Line, the band emerged at the tail end of the British Blues boom, and soon expanded their musical horizons with Clempson's exceptional guitar playing ability at the heart of their live shows. After shortening their name to Bakerloo, the band signed to Birmingham promoter Jim Simpson's Big Bear stable of artists, embarking on "The Big Bear Ffolly Tour" in the Autumn of 1968 with fellow acts Locomotive, Earth (later to change their name to Black Sabbath) and Tea and Symphony. Soon after Bakerloo had the distinction of supporting the newly formed Led Zeppelin at their first gig at The Marquee Club on October 18th 1968. The band signed to Tuesday Productions and recorded a sole eponymous album which was released on Harvest Records in November 1969. A promising live attraction, their career ended when Clem Clempson departed the group to replace James Litherland in Colosseum in 1970. This Esoteric Recordings release has been newly re-mastered and features five bonus tracks (including a B-side of a single and four studio out-takes), a booklet that fully restores the original album artwork and a new essay.

Banda Sinfonica Jovem do Estado de S o Paulo - 1984/ Out There CD $24.95
2 CD Set - Banda Sinfonica of Sao Paolo performs the works of Rick Wakeman

Pete Bardens - Seen on Earth CD $24.95
Digitally remastered edition of this 1987 album. Peter Bardens was the keyboardist and a founding member of the British Progressive Rock group Camel. He played organ, piano, synthesizers and mellotron and wrote songs with Andrew Latimer. Pete was featured on nine Camel albums before he left to do solo work. He enjoyed some great success with SEEN ON EARTH. This is the best that Cinema electronic music releases had to offer in the mid-'80s. Every one of these songs has an interesting element to it - whether it be the keyboard or synthesizer work or the melody or effects that drive them. This was 'Dark Side' for the synthesizer enthusiast.

Pete Bardens - Speed of Light CD $24.95
Digitally remastered edition of this 1988 release. Peter Bardens was the keyboardist and a founding member of the British Progressive Rock group Camel. He played organ, piano, synthesizers and mellotron and wrote songs with Andrew Latimer. Pete was featured on nine Camel albums before he left to do solo work. He enjoyed some great success with SPEED OF LIGHT. Bardens' follow-up to the popular SEEN ON EARTH is a collection of new age instrumentals and sleepy pop songs.

Martin Barre - Order of Play CD $29.95
2014 release from the Jethro Tull guitarist. On ORDER OF PLAY, the band set up just as they were performing a live gig. Every song on the album is a first take. Martin's guitar playing has earned him a high level of respect and recognition; he was voted 25th best solo ever in the USA and 20th best solo ever in the UK for his playing on Jethro Tull's 'Aqualung'. His playing on the album Crest of a Knave earned him a Grammy award in 1988. As well as numerous Jethro Tull albums, Martin has worked with many other artists including Paul McCartney, Phil Collins, Gary Moore, Joe Bonamassa and Chris Thompson and has shared a stage with such legends as Hendrix, Fleetwood Mac, Pink Floyd and Led Zeppelin. As Jethro Tull are taking a long break from touring, Martin has put together a band to play the classic music from the Tull catalog. His band is a total commitment to give the Tull fans and a broader audience the chance to hear tracks not performed for many years.

Goblin - Beyond the Darkness 1977-01 CD $22.95
Beyond the Darkness is an anthology of the second half of the career of the composers Goblin, perhaps best known for the propulsive, labyrinthic scores which illuminate the horror masterpieces of Italian film director Dario Argento.Goblin's genius lies in skilfully combining elements of progressive psychedelia with jazz-rock, Eastern European folk music and the Baroque. Their music often displays an eerie fairy tale quality that underscores tensions within a film to great effect. If Bella Casa's 2012 box set, The Awakening (CASA12BOX) documented Goblin's formative years, this edition comprises selections from ten films scored by the group across a twenty-five year period from 1977, culminating in Non Ho Sonno the Argento thriller for which this remarkable aggregation reformed to help create.

Ashley Hutchings - Riot of Spring CD $24.95
THE RIOT OF SPRING AND OTHER HISTORICAL DRAMAS, LARGE AND SMALL: A COLLECTION OF MUSIC COMPILED BY ASHLEY HUTCHINGS is a beautiful collection of music as chosen by the Godfather of Folk-Rock himself. The title track has been specially written for this album based upon Igor Stravinsky’s ballet. On the 29th May 1913, 'The Rite of Spring' by Igor Stravinsky premiered at the Théâtre des Champs Elysées in Paris. Not knowing whether to be more appalled by Stravinsky’s uncompromising experimentations in dissonance, tonality, rhythm and meter or by Vaslav Nijinsky’s unconventional, horizontal, pigeon-toed choreography, the Parisian audience reacted as their instincts told them. They rioted. Stravinsky and Nijinsky, it seemed, had succeeded in achieving the holy grail of art - they had created something entirely new.

This deluxe edition contains all the lyrics, and extensive notes by Paul Myers, extracted from his definitive book A Wizard, A True Star: Todd Rundgren In The Studio.

Todd Rundgren - Initiation CD $25.95
Digitally remastered edition in casebound book packaging. When it was issued in 1975, at 68 minutes, INITIATION was the longest album ever on one piece of vinyl. It starts with Todd’s classic Philly Soul single 'Real Man' and continues with the a cappella' Born To Synthesize'. Soul ballad 'Fair Warning' features Edgar Winter, Rick Derringer and Dan Hartman, while the title track features an amazing solo from sax legend David Sanborn. The entirety of side two was taken up with the 36 minute synthesizer extravaganza 'A Treatise On Cosmic Fire', which broke new ground in its use of technology for creating music.

Virtually a collaboration between Gary Usher and Curt Boettcher, both in their own right near-geniuses of Pop-Psych, the album also features a plethora of stars and strange bedfellows, from The Firesign Theatre to The Millennium, from Glen Campbell to The Wrecking Crew, from Beach Boy Bruce Johnston to future Bread man Jimmy Griffin, yep, they are all here! This release contains an extensively remastered version of the original 1968 release plus a whole raft of single mixes (so radically different), out-takes and demos, pretty much doubling the length of your immersion in this wonderful experience. Rev-Ola. 2009.

Schnauser - Protein for Everyone CD $26.95
"PROTEIN FOR EVERYONE" by the fabulously quirky band SCHNAUSER. "Protein for Everyone" caustically details the nagging neuroses bubbling under the surface of everyday life and imagines a brave new world where you can sell parts of your anatomy to be processed into cheap tasty meat for easy cash. Occasionally melancholic and blackly humorous lyrics are wrapped in a musical blanket of odd time signatures; fizzing with lively energetic progressive arrangements that have a pop sensibility, luring you in with three part harmonies and earworm melodies before wigging out on an inappropriate glockenspiel and fuzz bass solo in 10/8. The album includes the epic, eccentric and wonderful lengthy track 'Dipsosable Outcomes'. Schnauser have been nominated in the September 2014 PROG Magazine awards. With influences such as early Soft Machine, Supersister, White Denim, The Mothers of Invention, Stephen Malkmus and the Canterbury scene, "Protein for Everyone" is one of the most original and striking releases in Progressive music of 2014.

Soft Machine - Tanglewood Tails CD $25.95
2014 two CD archive release containing rare early Soft Machine cuts from 1963 -1970. These recordings feature Robert Wyatt, Kevin Ayers, Mike Ratledge, Hugh Hopper, Daevid Allen and others.

So while listening to the music, you can recall some of the pictures from the shows and also lots of material from the meet and greet backstage. This time we decided not just to record one single concert, we rather wanted to give you the best compilation on the most interesting performances of each of the titles played on various stages.

George Thorogood - 30th Anniversary Tour CD $22.95
2 CD Set - George Thorogood is an American icon, and together with his band The Destroyers he has become as much a part of American culture as the 4th of July, mom’s apple pie and rock ‘n’ roll itself. Now you can join the celebration of 30 years of high octane, hard rocking blues with this concert, on CD and DVD, recorded in England during their 2004 European tour. The show combines tracks from their Ride ‘Til I Die album with favourites such as 'Move It On Over', 'One Bourbon, One Scotch, One Beer', 'You Talk Too Much', 'I Drink Alone' and of course his seminal classic 'Bad To The Bone'.

Tin Spirits - Scorch CD $26.95
'Scorch', the much anticipated follow up to Tin Spirits debut album 'Wired to Earth'. As you would expect of a band that includes XTC's 6-string genius Dave Gregory, 'Scorch' is a celebration of guitars and harmony with songs that immediately captivate and engage. Lovingly crafted over two years 'Scorch' was mixed 'old school' with fingers on faders by acclaimed producer Paul Stacey (Black Crowes, Noel Gallagher), resulting in a sonic experience guaranteed to be a highlight of this year's new releases. Along with Dave Gregory, Tin Spirits' fellow Swindonians Mark Kilminster (Vocals, Bass) and Doug Mussard (Drums), as well as the Australian import Daniel Steinhardt (Guitar, Vocals) notably of TheGigRig, have carved themselves a unique niche being unashamedly progressive yet entirely accessible. From the rapturous tones of the instrumental opener 'Carnivore', to the introspective anthem 'Little Eyes' and the progressive epic 'Garden State', "Scorch" is an album that shows Tin Spirits have truly come of age with one of the most exhilarating and satisfying releases of 2014.

Travis & Fripp - Discretion CD $25.95
Travis & Fripp has, in recent years, become one of the most familiar & durable of the many duo collaborations involving Robert Fripp. Discretion is their fourth joint recording to be issued. It features material drawn from concerts in Cornwall, Barcelona & Rome - all recorded to hi-res multi-track - with minimal studio overdubs prior to being mixed down to hi-res stereo. The album is presented in a two disc CD/DVD-A format in a digi-pack at a special price enabling the music to be heard, as intended, in hi-res audio form on the DVD-A (playable on all dvd players), with a CD also included for conventional disc players. Travis & Fripp's music moves from the small-scale and intimate through to an epic grandeur that's filled with blissful reverie and on occasion, a mournful reflection. A masterclass in empathy, invention and vision Discretion is the sound of two musicians acting with one voice. The album also features two additional audio tracks previously only available in video format, including the stunning "Rhapsody On The Theme From Starless" - an improvisation based on one of the most revered King Crimson tracks in the band's 45 year history. Theo Travis' profile has been a member of Steven Wilson's band, most recently appearing on "The Raven That Refused To Sing" & the subsequent world tour supporting that release. For the first time since 2008, Robert Fripp is about to go back on the road with the new seven-piece incarnation of King Crimson.

The Ventures - Vol. 5-In the Vaults CD $24.95
It's been a long while since we released "The Ventures In The Vault Vol 4" in November 2007, but is has been worth the wait. Ventures fans and instrumental fans in general will be happy to hear Volume 5 contains two rare and 24 previously unreleased tracks. The album has been compiled with the band's help and all tracks are licensed from the Ventures.Of particular interest are the three tracks at the end of the CD. The case is not often, if ever, made for the band as significant forerunners to the psychedelic and heavy rock sounds of the late 60s and early 70s, but take a listen to how grungy and weighty 'Fuzz Factor', 'Sauerkraut' and 'Wipe Out' are.

Wally - Valley Gardens/ Wally CD $24.95
2 CD Set

Weather Report - Forecast: Tomorrow CD $46.95

Johnny Winter - Good Love in San Diego CD $25.95
Johnny's live performance in San Diego 1974, captures the legend at the start of a transitional phase in his career. With his roots in blues rock, Johnny spent much of the early seventies performing rock and roll tracks. By '74, Winter is still primarily a rocker, but his recordings start to take on a bluesier feel, going back to the music that started his career. The nine tracks performed are representatives of his last few years of hard rock and roll. This concert in support of his Saints and Sinners album also includes the customary crowd pleasers such as "Johnny B. Goode" and "Jumping Jack Flash" (a practice he will abandon later the decade).

Bruford - Live in Tokyo/ Introduction to Bill Bruford CD $21.95
2014 two CD release. Many people will know the name Bill Bruford and it isn’t just restricted to those in their middle 40s or early 50s who remember him as a member of Yes or King Crimson, or perhaps many of the sessions Bill has managed to notch up over the years. These days, Bill fronts the Jazz quartet Earthworks and in addition to playing the odd session Bill seems more than happy playing dates as far afield as Japan and South America to enthusiastic Jazz audiences and music lovers in general.

Bruford - Rock Goes to College/ Gradually Going Tornado CD $31.95
Digitally remastered two CD set containing a pair of albums from the legendary Rock/Jazz drummer: ROCK GOES TO COLLEGE and GRADUALLY GOING TORNADO. On ROCK GOES TO COLLEGE, this concert performance was recorded as part of a live television program aired in March 1979 and is thought to be Bruford’s debut gig following eighteen months with UK. Following his debut album FEELS GOOD TO ME and its successor ONE OF A KIND Bruford continued to produce intelligent, intricately crafted, and technically impressive music on GRADUALLY GOING TORNADO, the third in a four album series by his astonishing group, Bruford. the album also features a shift in the sound with the addition of guitarist John Clark in for the departed Allan Holdsworth. Vocal duties on this album are also handled by bassist Jeff Berlin, leading the band in a different but exciting direction.

Bill Brufords Earthworks - Earthworks Underground Orchestra + A Part and Yet Apart CD $31.95
Digitally remastered two CD set containing a pair of albums from the British Rock/Jazz drummer, best known for his work with Yes: EARTHWORKS UNDERGROUND ORCHESTRA and APART & YET APART. The close working relationship between two leading individuals on the London Jazz scene, Bruford and saxophonist Tim Garland, is mirrored in the creation of the EARTHWORKS UNDERGROUND ORCHESTRA. This little big band’s debut performance in the USA at Iridium, New York City, was captured live in full roaring swing, and the result will appeal alike to Earthworks fans, and fans from Bruford’s former life in King Crimson and Yes. APART & YET APART is a fine blend of melody and technical ability. The album was the first release from this particular line up of the band and one that is popular with many Modern Jazz fans.

J.J. Cale - Number 10 CD $20.95
CD reissue of this 1992 album from the late, great Blues/Americana singer/songwriter. As the title suggests, this was Cale's 10th studio album overall.

Cale was one of the originators of the Tulsa Sound, a loose genre drawing on Blues, Rockabilly, Country, and Jazz influences. Cale's personal style has often been described as "laid back".

The Crazy World of Arthur Brown - Zim Zam Zim CD $27.95
2014 album from the eccentric British Rock performer. 73 years young, the original God of Hellfire returns with the most surprising and astonishing album of his career, and his first in 10 years. A cross-generational outing with Jim Mortimore and Sam Walker, this is a joyous, triumphant, energetic and ambitious tour de force that shows Arthur to be more relevant today than when he had his #1 hit with 'Fire' and was pioneering Electronica (take note kids: first artist to ever use a drum machine live). A genre-spanning, time-travelling, world-bending, heavy-grooving and massively eclectic collection of songs with Arthur's vital, soulful and acrobatic voice at its heart. He creeps up behind like the original war-painted Mighty Boosh, kicking the likes of Tom Waits and Screaming Jay Hawkins into the orchestra pit. A celebration of life, he knows the unknown and the unknown knows him. Take note

Rupert got his deal and due to popular demand the Thinkman albums are now being reissued.

Producing HGTB(Y) was Wainwright's long time musical collaborator David Mansfield, who has backed him on numerous previous recordings as instrumentalist/arranger.

A highly original musician with an instantly recognizable style, Windo was involved in the '70s with various musicians of the Canterbury scene. Most notable was his work with Robert Wyatt. DEEP WATER, originally released on Island records in 1987, was an unsung classic, Windo spent the subsequent years in America doing copious session work, touring as special guest with Rock ’n’ Roll band NRBQ, and with the Psychedelic Furs. He played with Pam Windo & The Shades, and went on to record what would be his first released solo album, DOGFACE (1982).

Can/Saw Delight ....CD $13.99

Can/Saw Delight ....CD $13.99

Can was founded in 1968 by Irmin Schmidt, Holger Czukay, Michael Karoli and Jaki Liebezeit who formed a group which would utilize and transcend all boundaries of ethnic, electronic experimental and modern classical music.  Saw Delight is the ninth Can studio album.  It features two new band members who were ex-members of Traffic. The musical direction flirts with world music and precedes the mid 1980s world music trend set by artists such as Paul Simon and Peter Gabriel. Saw Delight was made as a binaural recording, a method of recording sound that uses two microphones, arranged with the intent to create a 3-D stereo sound sensation for the listener of actually being in the room with the performers or instruments.  The band's powerful influence has never diminished, and their indelible mark is apparent in the bands who freely acknowledge their importance as well as across other disciplines such as visual art and literature.

Marbin/Third Set ....CD $14.99

Marbin/Third Set ....CD $14.99

What does a band that has performed over 800 shows over the last three years do for an encore? Recording a scorching, balls-to-the-wall, three-alarm live album feels like a natural progression!  Without question, one of the hardest working, most motivated and driven independent bands in the world today, Marbin's The Third Set is a testimony to both that synonymous work ethic, as well as to the depth of musical diction, styles and textures these young gentlemen have achieved. Beyond that, it's a bone crushing, no-holds-barred, sonic feeding frenzy!! The "Two Danny's" (Dani Rabin on guitar and Danny Markovitch on sax) take a sizzling set of their best material to new heights and an unparalleled intensity: capturing facets of their style, sound and group interaction as only a smokin' live performance possibly could!  Ever the musical chameleons, Marbin continues to expand their horizons - pushing their music to the absolute limit, while keeping the accelerator pressed firmly to the floor! Both founders, Rabin and Markovitch, show more than ample evidence of the fire that burns in them both. Rabin's chops have never been more hard hitting, emotional and convincing; with blazing legatos lines alternately punctuating proceedings with Beck-like melodic phrasings and sweet chord comp work, Dani's many hours of off-stage preparation and sustained musical growth are clearly in evidence. Markovitch plays with more fervor than ever before, with his perfectly interspersed and articulated lines weaving their magic throughout. The band never sounded tighter or more on top of their game. (... who said "playing with fire" was a bad thing?).  The Third Set is the next step forward in the evolution of Marbin, as today's prodigies transform into tomorrow's progressive luminaries. Fasten your seat belts for this one, kids: it hugs the tight corners while refusing to ease off the gas!!

Moraine/Groundswell ....CD $14.99

Moraine/Groundswell ....CD $14.99

Moraine's most recent metamorphosis highlights their reoccurring theme of unbridled invention - undeterred by convention and delivered convincingly with abandon! Brushing all preconception aside, Dennis Rea and company courageously initiate proceedings from a place to which most modern progressive bands can only dream of ascending. Featuring a host of engaging new originals as well as pieces written for the band by composers Daniel Barry and Jon Davis, Groundswell is certain to cement the band’s standing as a singular voice like no other in the modern progressive jazz-rock continuum.  Building on the momentum generated by their previous releases for MoonJune Records, Moraine draws from the more exotic facets of the avant garde equation. Their critically heralded debut, 2009's Manifest Density and 2012's more than convincing follow-up, Metamorphic Rock: Live at NEARfest, are albums which garnered hundreds of glowing reviews worldwide - earning the band a diverse following, ranging from jazz aficionados, to metalheads, to world-music enthusiasts, and beyond.  Moments of "early-Crimsonesque" intensity are often balanced out by a more eastern approach to melody, arrangement and ensemble delivery; the music is delightfully fresh and unpredictable throughout. Brilliant compositions decorated by powerful themes, sudden shifts, sensitive group dynamics and fiery solo excursions dominate this session, as Moraine reveals a more psychodelic vibe, while remaining collectively and steadfastly plugged into the magic of the moment at hand.   Lovers of the best offerings from the RIO, classic fusion, prog rock, avant garde, progressive jazz, free jazz and Eastern music genres will all find plenty to sink their teeth into here, but that only starts to penetrate the surface of this delectable amalgamation. All of the band's components - leader/guitarist Dennis Rea; violinist Alicia DeJoie; sax/flutist James DeJoie; bassist Kevin Millard, and; the band's newest addition, seasoned veteran drummer Tom Zgonc - are in peak form and deliver the sonic goods in highly-inspired fashion on this very special outing.  Groundswell is to be one of the most ambitious, far-reaching albums from the progressive genre this year. This is "brave new avant-progressive-fusion" ... as it's title might infer, this one is destined to leave a mark!

Marbin/Marbin ....CD $14.99

Marbin/Marbin ....CD $14.99

The band's first album, self-released, featuring only Dani Rabin on guitars and Danny Markovitch on sax. Mixing washes of ambient jazz, junkshop minimalism, angular riffs, and spaced-out soundscapes, Marbin makes instrumental music for the new decade. This self-titled, dynamic release clearing conveys the sense that these players are reaching towards the distances without losing contact with one another, without sacrificing heart and soul, and proving that emotion and abstraction are not mutually exclusive. For fans of the ECM sound, Terje Rypdal, David Gilmour, Jan Garbarek and Gilad Atzmon.

The Sours/The Sours ....CD $14.99

The Sours/The Sours ....CD $14.99

The self-titled debut album by New York City's The Sours offers eleven original songs that range from cutting, slice-of-life observations, to raw, diaristic confessions. This acoustic project is the brainschild of singer/songwriter Sarah Schrift, joined by producer and guitarist Sasha Markovic (of Yagull and sashasonia) and special guest, pianist Kana Kamitsubo. Weaving through an amalgam of styles and textures, the artists create a rich, undulating sonic tapestry. The music is honest and straightforward, like the artist, herself. (...which is also reflected in the album's artwork, another side of Sarah's artistic expression; her work has been shown in international art galleries, as well as major motion pictures.) From the uplifting to the morose, The Sours hold nothing back, even injecting a little humor into the equation. Drawing inspiration from a variety of sources - broadly ranging in spectrum from Joni Mitchell, to Amy Winehouse, to Nick Drake and others - The Sours' music utilizes economy, touch and emotion to carry listeners on a unique musical journey.

Tohpati (with Haslip & Wackerman)/Tribal Dance ....CD $14.99

Tohpati (with Haslip & Wackerman)/Tribal Dance ....CD $14.99

For his third release for MoonJune Records [following 2010's Tohpati Ethnomission, Save The Planet, and 2012's Tohpati Bertiga, Riot], Tohpati is joined by renowned maestros, bassist Jimmy Haslip and drummer Chad Wackerman [who appeared together on the Holdsworth-Pasqua-Haslip-Wackerman Blues For Tony project]. The result is an album of brilliantly conceived and executed music, evidenced by a wellspring of inspired interplay, a delightful chemistry and bursts of intense, spontaneous genius.On Tribal Dance, there's no shortage of Tohpati's trademark breathtaking, acrobatic axe-wielding. Towering power chords, distorted spare-note lead lines, unexpected machine gun-blasting sonic assaults, chugging rhythmic grooves, and even a host of elegantly-nuanced jazz phrasings, are all in attendance - summoned at will, and in omnipotent fashion.His explosive fretwork often appears as the musical equivalent of a pounching cobra (or one that is coiled and ready to strike!), yet it is his intuitive, prescient interplay with this formidable world-class rhythm section that emerges victorious on this stage. A powerful synergy prevails, as Tohpati locks in with Haslip’s dubmaster basslines and the rubber-limbed, imaginative kitwork of Wackerman. The trio generate wave upon wave of infectious syncopations and robust grooves, gloriously decorating a very special session.

Peter Blegvad/Downtime ....import CD $17.99

The first release by the Blegvad Trio (Peter Blegvad, John Greaves, Chris Cutler). Compiled over two years without the pressure of Peter's major label releases, giving time for the songs and for Peter's singing to speak for themselves. Widely diverse in style, with many songs that have since become classics, this is a more personal and less marketable collection that Peter's Virgin releases, with the playing and production dedicated to the song, rather than its surface. Great songs, eccentric, subtle and always surprising. Guests Tony Maimone, Mick Hobbs, Stoffer Blegvad, Anthony Moore, Andy Ward, Phil Shaw and Jakko Jakszyk.

Bob Drake/Lawn Ornaments. ....import CD $17.99

After Bob's Drive-In, which, in terms of production was quite restrained and minimal, Ornaments sets off in the opposite direction, piling up great car crashes of overlapping fragments in a production that makes rococo look like shaker minimalism. Playing only drums, guitars, bass, banjo, fiddle, organ, trumpet and piano Bob herds tamed cataclysms of musical debris into the shapes of coherent - if episodic – songs, en route skipping through half a century of recording history. As to method well, you can't beat a year of work. The CD comes with a beautifully illustrated booklet that includes all the song texts as well as eighteen commissioned drawings by the meticulous fine-artist Joe Mruk. Extraordinary music, intriguingly wrapped.

Steve MacLean & MeRCy/Future(s) ....import CD $17.99

This CD of songs, grittily arranged and produced is noticeably more straight-ahead than ReR's usual releases though it sits comfortably within the broad range of Steve's tirelessly experimental output. This is a project with a long history: Steve and his main collaborator Todd Dadaleares have been writing, recording and performing together for longer than MeRCy's 20+ year existence and David Fields (drums) and Tim Inman (keyboards) are also long servers. New, for this phase of recordings and concerts, is five string bassist Greg Goodwin who steps into the previous incumbent, Mark Dickey's, shoes. MacLean scores the music, in scary detail, and Dadaleares supplies the words. This is America, so they all have day jobs: MacLean as professor of music technology and performance at Berklee, Dadaleares in health robotics, Inman as a computer consultant and Fields in industrial art.

Funkadelic/Hardcore Jollies ....import CD $27.99

Funkadelic/Hardcore Jollies ....import CD $27.99

2014 reissue in a deluxe CD mediabook with photos and comprehensive sleeve notes.   Hardcore Jollies was Funkadelic's ninth studio album and the band's first for Warner Bros. Records.  Released in October 1976 and dedicated to "the guitar players of the world," it followed hard on the heels of their last album for indie Westbound, which comprised outtakes from the same recording sessions. Hardcore Jollies was also the last Funkadelic album to feature three original members of The Parliaments, vocalists Fuzzy Haskins, Grady Thomas and Calvin Simon. Arguably lighter in tone than earlier outings, goofiness still abounds with standout moments including If You Got Funk, You Got Style and Soul Mate.  Spawning the singles Comin' Round the Mountain and Smokey, the album also includes a live remake of 1973's Cosmic Slop, from the album of the same name. Recorded during rehearsals for 1976's P-Funk Earth Tour, this version features a vocal introduction dropped from the 1973 studio cut and features prominent guitar solos by Michael Hampton, widely considered to be among the best of his early work. Although uncredited, Hardcore Jollies also features guitarist Eddie Hazel. Artist Pedro Bell delivers the band's trademark eccentric sleeve art, whilst the album's accompanying short story should raise a titter or two.  Very Funkalicious, my friends!

Funkadelic/Uncle Jam Wants You ....import CD $27.99

Funkadelic/Uncle Jam Wants You ....import CD $27.99

Funkadelic's politically provocative eleventh studio album from 1979.  2014 reissue in a deluxe CD mediabook with photos and comprehensive sleeve notes.  More militant in tone than its predecessor One Nation Under A Groove, which described a Funk utopia, Uncle Jam's stated mandate was to, 'Rescue dance music from the blah.'  A reference to the 'Uncle Sam Wants You!' US Army recruitment poster, the sleeve depicts George Clinton (aka Dr Funkenstein) in a Huey Newton Black Panthers pose.  The album contains a 15-minute plus version of the band's last significant hit (Not Just) Knee Deep. A veritable Funkathon, by Lord!

Deep Purple/Graz 1975 ....CD $14.99

On April 3, 1975 the Mk III line-up of Purple - guitarist Ritchie Blackmore, frontman David Coverdale, bassist/vocalist Glenn Hughes, keyboard player Jon Lord and drummer Ian Paice - played a concert at the Liebenauer ice rink, located on the outskirts of mountain-cradled Graz, Austria's second largest city after Vienna. Enthused by Purple's arrival in town, the local press dubbed the concert 'the rock event of the year.' And it was - in more ways than one. After Graz, Purple would play just two more shows - in Saarbrucken, Germany and Paris, France - before Blackmore left to form his new band, Rainbow. The remaining Purple members would regroup quickly with American guitarist Tommy Bolin in tow, in place of Blackmore.  But that's another story.  In order to preserve Blackmore's final run of Mk III concerts for posterity, Purple's managers had brought the Rolling Stones mobile recording studio over to mainland Europe.

The Golliwogs/Fight Fire: The Complete Recordings 1964-1967 ....CD $14.99

This comprehensive collection of the music of The Golliwogs, Fight Fire: The Complete Recordings 1964-1967, offers fans a unique opportunity to hear the artistic progression and apprenticeship of John and Tom Fogerty, Stu Cook, and Doug Clifford in the three years leading up to the band's transformation into Creedence Clearwater Revival.  The San Francisco Bay Area band had formed in 1959 as an instrumental trio (John, Doug and Stu) called The Blue Velvets. A year later, John's older brother Tom joined, adding vocals to the mix and cementing the eventual CCR lineup. By the end of 1964, the band had signed with Fantasy Records, whose co-owner Max Weiss changed their name to The Golliwogs, without consulting them.  Nevertheless, the band resolutely worked clubs and ballrooms throughout central California and released a half-dozen garage rock flavored singles, several of which became regional hits in markets across the US. Amongst collectors and aficionados of '60s garage rock, The Golliwogs' records are today held in the highest regard. In late 1967, the quartet became Creedence Clearwater Revival, releasing their eponymous album a few months later.  The rest is rock 'n' roll history.  This CD will be the only available collection of music by The Golliwogs on the market as a standalone product. It features all their singles sides, along with many tracks not released at the time. In his detailed liner notes, compilation producer Alec Palao states that "the triumvirate of singles that are 'Brown-Eyed Girl, 'Fight Fire' and 'Walking on the Water' would be jewels in the crown of any mid-1960s rock band, whether they were destined for fame or not."

They've both managed to take the instrument to places never before seen or heard.  Extensive national tour will follow album release.

Charlie Haden & Jim Hall/Charlie Haden - Jim Hall ....CD $15.99

Charlie Haden & Jim Hall/Charlie Haden - Jim Hall ....CD $15.99

Continuing with its inspired reactivation, the legendary jazz label Impulse! proudly presents a previously-unreleased recording of a stunning duo performance by these two recently departed masters at the 1990 Montreal International Jazz Festival. "This album documents a rarified journey," writes pianist Ethan Iverson in the album's liner notes. "Charlie Haden and Jim Hall knew each for over a half century, played more than a few concerts together, and shared many ideals, but this is their first concert-length recording. It is a major addition to the discography of both artists." At first this might seem an unusual pairing - the dean of the avant-garde bass and a fellow that defined mainstream jazz guitar - but Charlie Haden and Jim Hall shared much common ground. Besides the decades of jazz history they each walked on stage with on July 2, 1990, they also both proved themselves to be masters of the Art of the Duo over the course of their illustrious careers: Haden with Metheny, Keith Jarrett, Ornette Coleman, Alice Coltrane, Kenny Barron, and more; Hall with Metheny, Bill Evans, Ron Carter, and George Shearing, among others. Together Haden and Hall bring thundering intimacy and gentle envelope-pushing on this profound series of duos. Haden and Hall had something else in common as well, an earthiness that grounded whatever they're doing, something that gives a listener something to hold onto. Haden's background in folk music is never far away, just as shades of the blues and even folk-like simplicity are within Hall's approach. Both gents swing - Haden with that big, pliant, supple, buoyant sound, Hall with those lithe, carefully considered lines and often crystalline notes.  "What a treat it is to hear two of my heroes and my two favorite personal duet partners playing in a setting like this! This is a recording for the ages." - Pat Metheny

Sting/The Last Ship - Live at the Public Theater ....DVD $19.99

The Last Ship tells the story of the demise of the shipbuilding industry in 1980s Newcastle which had, for so long, shaped and overshadowed the city, its development, and its community. Inspired by this subject matter, Sting has written more than 40 original songs for the project, some of which will be included in a stage play of the same name. The defining songs featured on the album The Last Ship explore a myriad of universal themes including the complexity of relationships, the passage of time, transgressions, and redemption.  To support and celebrate its release, Sting performed a multiple night engagement at the Public Theater in New York City. The artists joining Sting and Musical Director/Producer Rob Mathes on this album include both longtime collaborators and musicians with roots in Northeast England.

Mark-Almond/Mark-Almond ....CD $15.99

Long out of print on CD the first album from Mark-Almond features the early seventies classics, "The Ghetto" and "The City."

Amoeba Split/Dance of the Goodbyes ....import CD $24.99

What if the Canterbury School had been relocated to the North of Spain? Hailing from A Coruna, Amoeba Split is a modern band that mixes progressive rock, jazz and classical music, not unlike Hatfield & The North, Soft Machine or Matching Mole in the '70s.. The quintet has been founded in the year 2001, and it took the musicians nine years to release their first album, "Dance of the Goodbyes." It was worth the wait, since it was nominated by ProgAwards as "Best Prog Debut Album Of 2010." The first edition was limited to five hundred copies, and is now reissued by Musea and Azafran Media. Here's an unique occasion to rediscover this piece of work, made of five long pieces, mainly instrumental but also featuring the English lyrics of Maria Toro.   Let's also mention the opening short-piece and its evocative title: "Dedicated To Us, But We Weren't Listening."

Jack Dupon/Tete De Chien ....import CD $24.99

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. Jack Dupon explores the vast landscapes of progressive rock, experimental and psychedelic. Sometimes reminiscent of a kind of modern Etron Fou Leloublan, this music may also be related with Sebkha-Chott's or King Crimson's electric dissonances. Gong also comes to mind.  Jack Dupon is all but consensual, for our own pleasure.  After their last release, an excellent concept album paying tribute to the Great Adventure ("Jesus L'Aventurier" 2013), here comes Jack Dupon, strong as ever, for an equally excellent "Tete De Chien" ("Doghead"). This common expression is mostly used by the French to name their "good friends" from the capital, Paris. If you want to know more about it, all you have to do is play this new masterpiece!

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

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

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

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

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

Sandrose/Sandrose (Musea Digisleeve) ....import CD $29.99

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Fred Schneider/Voyage ....import CD $25.99

Fred Schneider is a bass prodigy. At 19, this French musician got increasingly interested in jazz and related musics: he got trained in ball bands, then he became a bass-player of the alternative jazz fanfare Toxicomoon. His first solo album was recorded in 1996 under the name Fred and Co., and released on the Musea Parallele label. Eighteen years later and after many albums and collaborations, our man is back with a new album: "Voyage."  This shows a cool and light music, kind of modern jazz-rock fusion leaving a large space for emotion. A touch of welcome humour appears here and there.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

The Lost Generation/The Lost Generation ....import CD $28.99

The Lost Generation/The Lost Generation ....import CD $28.99

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

Loreweaver/Italic ....import CD $25.99

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

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

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

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

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

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

King Crimson/Starless (Limited Edition Boxed Set) ....27 Disc Box Set $199.99

King Crimson/Starless (Limited Edition Boxed Set) ....27 Disc Box Set $199.99

David Cross: violin & keyboards; Robert Fripp:  guitar & Mellotron; John Wetton: bass and voice; Bill Bruford: percussives.  Few bands of the era offered as much variety in material from night to night. King Crimson's propensity for improvisation and fondness for playing its newest material often unreleased on record at the time of the concerts is legendary. Fewer bands still, whether by accident or design, recorded so many of their live shows.   Starless offers an in depth overview of one of the era's most significant bands in its most celebrated live line-up.  Autumn 1973 - as King Crimson's second lengthy US tour of that year was coming to a close, a short series of UK concerts for the end of October, followed by a more extensive European tour in November was already planned. Three of these concerts Glasgow, Zurich & Amsterdam were recorded as full multi-track recordings, with material from the Amsterdam show being used as core material for the January 1974 recording of Starless & Bible Black. From mid-March to the start of April, the band was on the road in Europe again, promoting the album with their final European concerts of the decade, prior to undertaking a further US tour. A number of these concerts were recorded on stereo reel to reel machines, fed directly from the signal as sent to the PA system on the night of the performance. These soundboards are often referred to as "The Blue Tapes," named after the outer color of the original tape boxes and are especially valued for both the quality of recording and performance.  This boxed set includes:

* 19 CDs of live performance material including: 7 CDs taken from multi-track tape including 4CDs of material from the Glasgow & Zurich shows, freshly assembled & mastered in Hi-Res from the original Great Deceiver mixes by David Singleton at DGM Soundworld in 2014, the Amsterdam show The Nightwatch mixed by Steven Wilson & a previously unheard preparatory of material from the same show prepared by George Chkiantz (engineer of all live KC shows of the era & the Red album).  11 CDs drawn from high quality stereo reel to reel soundboard tapes. 8 making their first appearance on CD with the remaining three re-mastered or drawn from new tape sources.  1 CD presenting the performance from the ORTF Paris TV broadcast.
* CD 20 features the 2011 stereo mix of Starless & Bible Black by Steven Wilson & Robert Fripp
* DVD-A 1 features the Starless & Bible Black album in 5.1 Surround, with new & original stereo album mixes in High Resolution Stereo plus bonus audio material.
* DVD-A 2 features material from Mainz (mixed by David Singleton), Amsterdam (mixed by Steven Wilson) & a later show from Pittsburgh (mixed by George Chkiantz) in quadraphonic audio & High-Resolution Stereo.
* Both DVD-A discs are region 0 playable in all areas & compatible with all DVD players & DVD Rom players
* Blu-Ray Disc 1 features full lossless audio 24/192 transfers of material from the Glasgow and Zurich shows, freshly assembled & mastered from the original Great Deceiver mixes by David Singleton at DGM Soundworld in 2014 in LPCM stereo.  Blu-Ray Disc 1 also features the Amsterdam show The Nightwatch, mixed by Steven Wilson and the George Chkiantz preparatory mix stereo in 24/96 High-resolution stereo & a 24/96 transfer of the original David Singleton/Robert Fripp mix of The Nightwatch.
* Blu-Ray Disc 2 features Starless & Bible Black in 5.1 Surround (DTS-HD MAS & LPCM 24/96) alongside new and original stereo masters of the album, a needledrop of an original vinyl pressing plus audio extras.  Blu-Ray Disc 2 also features the Quad mixes of material from the Mainz, Amsterdam & Pittsburgh concerts as well as the ORTF Paris TV footage in a new hi-res transfer from the original source files.

Fripp & Eno/Live in Paris May 28 1975 ....3 CD Set $22.99

Fripp & Eno/Live in Paris May 28 1975 ....3 CD Set $22.99

Much bootlegged, though never heard in even reasonable audio quality, this concert - one of a handful undertaken by Fripp & Eno in 1975 - is routinely described as "legendary." Hearing the tapes in fully restored audio quality, it's easy to understand why it attracts such reverence now and perhaps, why the shows attracted such hostility then. No Roxy Music hits, no King Crimson riffs, just a duo sitting in near darkness with a reel to reel tape recorder, improvising over the pre-recorded loops with a filmed background projection. Replace the reel to reel machine with a couple of laptops/iPads/sequencers and the core of much current live performance from electronica to hip-hop was there some thirty years in advance. At the time, audiences responded to such a glimpse of the future with booing, walkouts and general confusion.  Thanks to the discovery and restoration of the original backing tapes, it was possible - with much painstaking restoration work by Alex Mundy at DGM - to isolate, de-noise and match the live elements from the performance tapes to the studio loops to produce the final recording.

Edited from the album sleeve notes by Frippertronics expert Allan Okada:  "This historic recording documents an extremely rare and classic performance of a mysterious collaborative tour from two of the most creative and fascinating figures in rock. It is one of the most rewarding live recordings this writer has ever heard. For any fan of 'No Pussyfooting' or 'Evening Star,' this live recording is of epic significance and is now also comparable in audio quality, by synchronizing the most complete and best (by a mile) available live bootleg recording with Eno's recently discovered stage tapes. This tour also represented a turning point for both artists, about to enter new frontiers professionally and personally: Eno as an ambient music pioneer and Fripp's re-emergence as a "small, mobile, intelligent unit." This Paris Olympia performance was technically flawless and from a musical standpoint, incredibly inspired. This lucky audience was treated with the entirety of both classic albums as well as enough new material to constitute a third. As a bonus, we are also presented with Eno's stage tapes in pure format including Test Loops from the sound check. What more could you ask from a live recording? Absolutely essential listening."

David Sylvian & Robert Fripp/The First Day ....CD $15.99

David Sylvian & Robert Fripp/The First Day ....CD $15.99

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

David Sylvian & Robert Fripp/Damage ....CD $15.99

David Sylvian & Robert Fripp/Damage ....CD $15.99

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

Fripp & Eno/Equatorial Stars ....vinyl LP 31.99

Fripp & Eno/Equatorial Stars ....vinyl LP 31.99

Robert Fripp's personal favorite out of his trilogy of genre-defining collaborations with Brian Eno.  Originally released in 2004 and now available for the first time on (super-heavyweight 200g) vinyl.  Brian Eno is usually credited with the claim that everyone who originally bought a Velvet Underground album subsequently formed a band. It's no less valid to suggest that many of those involved in electronic music might not have been but for No Pussyfooting and Evening Star. Indeed few contemporary albums can claim as much lasting influence as No Pussyfooting by Fripp & Eno. It's safe to say that for the vast majority of buyers at the time of its initial release in 1973, this was their first exposure to the small world of electronic music. It's equally safe to say it wasn't their last. The equipment used was, by modern standards, primitive. The ideas expressed were, by any standards, enormous. Many went on to have careers based on the possibilities suggested by the album. Fripp & Eno - to their eternal credit - were too busy working as musicians to ever 'milk it' in that sense. One further full album, Evening Star, was issued in 1975. There were occasional collaborations, but no further recordings under the Fripp & Eno banner until the emergence of The Equatorial Stars in late 2004 as a limited edition release via the artists' websites, followed by a full release in 2005 on CD.  However, it was never issued on vinyl, until now.  The Equatorial Stars consists of a series of seven soundscapes. The evident care taken in the construction and presentation of the sound world makes the totality of the work so convincing. The textures and atmospheres forming the heart of each track manage to subtly change and alter, while leaving ample space for Robert's guitar solos to emerge from the center. The album was Fripp & Eno's opportunity to redefine an area of music they helped to launch into the mainstream in the first instance.

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

No-Man/Together We're Stranger ....import CD $15.99

No-Man's fifth album 'Together We're Stranger' undoubtedly comprises the band's most ambitious and personal project in its history.  Originally released in 2003, 'Together We're Stranger' saw No-Man (the duo of Tim Bowness and Porcupine Tree's Steven Wilson) further extending the reach of its panoramic soundscapes and cracked, mournful, ballads.  Boasting impressive performances from Ben Castle (clarinets), Roger Eno (harmonium) and Gramophone's David Picking (percussion, trumpet), amongst others, the album is a powerful and emotionally direct statement that has deservedly garnered cult acclaim and led to a growing fanbase and internet presence for the band.  This 2014 sleevepac version has been remastered by Steven Wilson and includes 2 bonus tracks with the included booklet features sleeve notes from Mojo Magazine's Johnny Black.

Pineapple Thief/Magnolia ....import CD $15.99

Anthemic, catchy and straight from the heart, Magnolia represents the ultimate culmination of songwriter and guitarist Bruce Soord's ongoing quest to expand their musical horizons beyond the progressive sphere. With a sound more akin to Biffy Clyro and Muse, Magnolia has all the potential to bring The Pineapple Thief to the masses, having created a devastating collection of 12 beautifully crafted songs, cramming a vast array of emotional shades and inspirational ideas into its 47 mesmerising minutes. Veering from the strident opening assault of 'Simple As That', due to be released as the first single, through to the cinematic sweep of the closing track 'Bond.'  Magnolia was recorded at Snap Studios and mixed at Strongroom Studios in London, by Adam Noble, whose previous work includes albums from Placebo, Guillemots, Paul McCartney, Robbie Williams and Get Cape, Wear Cape, Fly. Formed in 1999 by founder and chief songwriter Bruce Soord The Pineapple Thief have continued to evolve and refine their sound ever since and they're seen by many as one of the most interesting and innovative rock bands the UK have produced in recent years.  Recent albums like Someone Here Is Missing (2010) and All The Wars (2012) have made their reputation and fan base stronger, starting to gather interest from a wider spectrum of alternative rock followers. Bruce Soord also collaborates with other Kscope artists, joining forces with Katatonia's Jonas Renske on the 2013 Wisdom Of Crowds project and joining Katatonia on their recent Dethroned & Uncrowned Unplugged acoustic European tour.

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

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

Cover Version, the album, collects all the material issued on the limited edition Cover Version singles series released between 2003-2010.  The 12 tracks comprise 6 Steven Wilson originals and 6 covers and provide an essential insight into both Wilson's musical taste and his evolution as a solo artist.  In March 2003 Steven Wilson released Cover Version, a two track CD single which was limited to 1,000 copies.

The single was made up of one cover version along with one new self-written composition. this proved to be the first of a series of Cover Version releases as over the next few years he released a further five singles. The artists that he covered reflect the diverse range of music that influences him, taking in tracks by Alanis Morissette, Abba, The Cure, Momus, Price and Donovan. As Steven Wilson's popularity has grown, both through his work with Porcupine Tree and through his burgeoning solo career, these long sold out releases have become much sought after by collectors.  Compiled onto CD for the first time and due to be relesaed by KScope in a sleevepac with artwork 'remixed' from the box design by Carl Glover.

Happy Family/Minimal Gods ....CD $16.99

Happy Family first appeared in the early 1990s as part of the explosion of exciting, underground bands roaring out of Japan at that time, such as Ruins and Boredoms.  An instrumental quartet of keyboards, guitar, bass and drums, they released two albums of over-the-top, metal, King Crimson and Magma influenced avant-progressive rock for Cuneiform Records in 1995 (Happy Family) and 1997 (Toscco) and then fell silent....until now!  Reforming with original personnel 15 years later, they are back and just as heavy and intense as they ever were.  And they still sound like no one else except Happy Family!  "Skewered blasts of noisome, Red metal shatters through rough and tumble landscapes of shuddering percussion, ominous, gravelly basslines and wheezing synths. An all-instrumental bulldozer of an album..."

Happy Family/Toscco ....CD $16.99

A Cuneiform classic returns!  This new printing of the band's second album includes the previously Japanese-only bonus track "Dear My Daughter."   Toscco is the much anticipated second release from Japan's premier Zeuhl smokers. Still an instrumental quartet of keyboards, guitar, bass and drums, the years of work and playing since their first release have given them even more confidence and a more "gritty" sound. The addition of new guitarist Takahiro Izutani has also notched up the energy level. He's also a fine songwriter, and has contributed a new slant to their sound. This is a big step forward from their much appreciated first.

Jonathan Badger/Verse ....CD $16.99

Jonathan Badger/Verse ....CD $16.99

Experimental guitarist / musician / composer Jonathan Badger releases his third studio album, Verse, his first on Cuneiform Records.  Jonathan studied composition at Duke University. He also studied in Guitar Craft, a guitar school founded and guided by Robert Fripp of King Crimson.  Jonathan's work ranges from post-rock sludge to neo-baroque chamber music. His compositions and improvisations show themselves in electronic garb, all the while maintaining the character of solo guitar.  The guitar and percussion tracks of Verse were recorded to half-inch tape, after which Jonathan brought in a number of musicians to help orchestrate the pieces with brass, voice, reeds and strings. The album begins with simple guitar textures that slowly devolve and descend into vast subterranean soundscapes.  "This melancholic, mosaic record . . . shuffles nimbly between extremes of darkness and light the way an Olympic figure skater transitions from twirls and spins to Lutzes and Axles, a suite of fluid, involving instrumentals that draws from disparate genres to arrive at a sort of post-ambient survey course." - Baltimore City Paper

Dylan Ryan & Sand/Circa ....CD $16.99

Drummer and composer Dylan Ryan, who has his feet firmly planted in indie rock and creative jazz (playing in Cursive and Herculaneum), returns with the second album by his band Sand. Throughout Circa, Ryan, guitarist Timothy Young (John Zorn, David Sylvian, Beck) and bassist Devin Hoff (Nels Cline, Cibo Matto) build upon their debut, an already inventive take on the guitar power trio, borrowing elements of James 'Blood' Ulmer, Fugazi, Bill Frisell and Fred Frith's Massacre.  Regarding his intentions for Sand's second record, Ryan said, "The most important thing for me while putting this record together was the idea of playing on the strengths of the first record without completely abandoning the sound we stumbled onto. When I did the first record, Hoff, Young, and I hadn't played a single show, or even played that much together yet so we were kind of feeling things out. After touring that record, I knew that I wanted to build on four main things; the harmonic openness or simplicity, the dramatic dynamic shifts, the ensemble passages, and especially group unison parts as on songs like 'Visionary Fantasy'."   Circa takes the most memorable elements of the debut record and expands upon them, honing the craft, and further distinguishing their sound. The sheer size of the band's sound has increased immensely. Introspective pastoral moments of "Visionary Fantasy" are book-ended by sludge-trodden group passages and the shadows of Dark Americana in "Slow Sculpture," which in turn are countered in "Possession" with highly imaginative Melvins-esque ensemble figures. Young's blissful guitar phrases lend an almost vocal capacity to these songs as Ryan and Hoff offer a perfect vehicle for his exuberance.

Anthony Pirog/Palo Colorado Dream ....CD $16.99

Palo Colorado Dream - recorded with the all-star trio of Michael Formanek on bass and Ches Smith on drums - is guitarist Anthony Pirog's debut solo album, and it marks the young innovator's entrance onto the national stage. The album's 11 tracks have an immersive depth and understated allure that hold the listener rapt. And they illustrate all the various realms of Pirog's artistry: the spinning fantasy-scape of his loops and the hard-nosed technical power of his soloing, his patience with a slow build and his knack for moments of fierce catharsis.

"I have always thought of the idea of passing as a beautiful thing, in which the soul or life force of the individual is somehow transferred to the immensity and brilliance of the entirety. The idea of Heaven and Hell (and everything in between) has always been a hallmark within the limited spectrum of what we humans can come up with and the idea of God or Gods has, for some, been an interesting way of putting a life and circumstances into some kind of mysterious belief system that can at times be fed off of and at times be fed to." - Rob Mazurek, excerpt from Return the Tides

The Cellar and Point/Ambit ....CD $16.99

The Cellar and Point/Ambit ....CD $16.99

The Cellar and Point is an adventurous 'garage chamber' band, developed and led by childhood friends Joseph Branciforte and Christopher Botta. They had long imagined a fluid synthesis of their wide-ranging interests: the detail of modern concert music, the improvisational sensibilities of downtown jazz and the emotional directness of rock, combined with the production values of hip-hop and electronica. Might it be possible to draw equally upon these influences, while transcending mere collage and to present it in the context of a working ensemble, not just a studio project? Ambit, the group's impressive debut album, is one answer to those questions.

Rick is one of the most fluid and intuitive keyboard players in the world today, whether in the rock genre in which he is most famous, or within any other genre of the broad gamut of contemporary musicianship.  About this album Stephen Raiteri writes: "The final installment in Rick Wakeman's new age piano trilogy (the first two being Country Airs and Sea Airs), Night Airs is an elegant collection of new compositions, with the overall mood being one of reflection. A few pieces, such as 'The Sad Dream' strike a pensive note, and the lively 'Jack Frost' provides contrast. ~ Stephen Raiteri, All Music Guide

Technically, by processing his bass guitar with fuzz box, flanger, wha-wha, octave pedal effects, his use of tapes loops, and latterly computer programming, Hugh constructed multilayer soundscapes with great attention to detail. His creative template embraced aesthetics well beyond the orthodox roles assigned to the bass guitar and its practitioner.

Mick Abrahams just wanted to play the blues. Robert Johnson hadn't sold his soul to the devil in order to make progressive rock albums about a nine-year-old boy poet. There was a purity and an integrity to the blues, and it was the path along which Mick Abrahams intended to walk. And it is a path that he has walked ever since, both with Blodwyn Pig and under his own name, like this remarkable live album from The Mick Abrahams Band live in Forli, Italy.

Les Contes du Singe Fou (roughly translated, Tales of the Mad Monkey) is a progressive rock album by Clearlight, released in 1976 on Isadora Records in France.  Returning again to France, Clearlight turned to conceptual space rock with science fiction lyrics. (The lyrics do not have anything to do with a mad monkey, however.) Les Contes du Singe Fou is the only Clearlight album in which vocals and lyrics play a significant role. In reverse of the previous album, the title is in French, but all lyrics are in English. This is not apparent from the cover, which contains no song titles on the outside. English Lyrics with French translations are printed on the cover's gatefold. Musically, the album contains psychedelic, new age, and jazz fusion elements.

This extraordinary record catches the Captain at his best; live on stage in 1977. A few days after the show he said: "This band is so good - the best I have ever had! They play with a smile. They really breathe up there when they are playing. After all this time I have finally found the band I'm looking for. It's amazing! Playing with this group is like going for a walk: they are so happy when they play. People I meet from the audience have been coming up and telling me how pleased they are that I have finally found a band that I am content with - and they are right.  This group, I tell you, I couldn't believe that there were such nice people still around on this earth. True, they are playing what I have written, but they really are playing. This band is moving so fast that very soon I won't have to tell them anything. I really must say: this band is the best ...."

Peter Banks Empire/The Mars Tapes ....import double CD $22.99

Empire was born from the end of Flash, and was known for a while as Flash Mk. II. One time member of Yes, guitarist Peter Banks, formed a band called ZOX and the Radar Boys, and some of the band's jams saw Phil Collins on the drums. However, Collin's obligation with Genesis meant he could not be on all the tracks of the 1974 recordings of Empire.   Unusually for a progressive band, Empire was fronted by a woman, Sydney Foxx.   Whereas Annie Haslam provided the airy vocals for Renaissance, Foxx's voice contributed a strong bluesy vocal, very much like Lydia Pense, of Cold Blood, and Janis Joplin on occasion. While Empire's sound covered a variety of genres, from blues to country blues, the band - as expected with the influence of both Banks and Collins - incorporated the basics of progressive music.

'In Exile' begins with haunting Mellotron strings that immediately sets the tone for this very cinematic piece of music with great dynamics and drama along with some odd meter bits that help to tell the story. The musicians are all working overtime on this one.'

Lunar Muzik is the third album by Ant-Bee, originally released in 1997 through Divine Records. In 1998 Aural Innovations magazine had this to say about the album: 'Did you ever lie awake at night straining to imagine what kind of music would result from a collaboration that included Daevid Allen, Harvey Bainbridge, the original Mothers Of Invention, and the original Alice Cooper Group (minus Vince)? Well Ant Bee's 'Lunar Muzik' puts this question to rest once and for all'.  Three years in the making, Lunar Muzik (1997), explored both the pop and experimental side of the psychedelic spectrum and was bolstered by strong production and appearances from Daevid Allen of Soft Machine and Gong and Harvey Bainbridge of Hawkwind and the original Alice Cooper Group.

Clepsydra is a Swiss neo-progressive band that was formed in 1990 by Aluisio Maggini (vocals), Lele Hofmann (guitars), Philip Hubert (keyboards), Andy Thommen (bass) and Pietro Duca (drums).  When the band first arrived they were concurrent with the early 1990s British prog dream which produced bands like IQ, and Pendragon, and Galahad, Clepsydra didn't even realize that they were part of such a movement. Alone is their fourth album, released after Andy had left the group for a while.  Andy Thommen described the process of recording these early albums as a labor of love.  They made music purely for the innate joy of doing so, with no commercial considerations whatsoever.

Lenny Breau/LA Bootleg 1984 ....CD $14.99

Lenny Breau is regarded as one of the greatest guitarists of all time, both by fans and fellow guitarists. On the 30th anniversary of his untimely death - his murder remains unsolved - a newly discovered live recording containing songs never previously recorded or released by the revered jazz guitarist, is being released globally, alongside his best selling catalog - many of which have been unavailable for several years, under a new deal between Randy Bachman's Guitarchives label and Linus Entertainment.  Lenny Breau is famous for being one of the first virtuoso guitarists to blend many styles of music including: jazz, country, classical and flamenco guitar. Breau, inspired by country guitarists like Chet Atkins, used fingerstyle techniques not often used in jazz guitar, and with his use of the 7 string guitar and approach to the guitar like a piano, opened up new possibilities for the instrument.  During his lifetime, Lenny's ability to play the guitar has been described in many ways. Chet Atkins once called Lenny "the greatest guitar player in the world. If Chopin could have played the guitar, he would have sounded like Lenny Breau." Respected guitar great Danny Gattin once said, "Lenny Breau played more great stuff at one time than anybody on the planet, with feeling and tone. He was the best that ever lived, bar none."

Various Artists/Real World 25 ....3 CD Box Set $19.99

How to condense a quarter century of a record label that's blazed trails, opened doors, and introduced a whole new world of music? With the celebratory Real World 25 - a three CD set boasting big names, hidden gems and tracks chosen by our fans - we're giving it a go. "We worked hard to create an evironment where artists felt respected and supported so that they were able to deliver extraordinary performances," says Peter Gabriel of the label he launched in 1989.

It's a little piece of blues history - and great fun to watch and enjoy.  Watch for yourself and you will see this: this film - and it deserves to be called a film - is the equal of any high budget contemporary TV production or slick promo video.

Four Chet Atkins master class albums featuring sessions with Les Paul, Mark Knopfler, Jerry Reed and Tommy Emmanuel on this essential double CD. Chet Atkins C.G.P. (Certified Guitar Player) - with a 50-year legacy as the epitome of the modern guitar master made an indelible impression as a session guitarist and record producer. If Chet was an impeccable craftsman in his own right, then when he recorded with other elite players the results were sheer brilliance.  This collection combines four genuine master class guitar duets albums: Guitar Monsters (1978) with Les Paul (recorded for RCA) was described as "an enjoyable disc, one whose best moments are hard to resist. For guitar mavens, it's a joyous truffle" (All About Jazz); Neck and Neck (1990) with Mark Knopfler (recorded for Columbia), the single ‘Poor Boy Blues' won the Grammy for Best Country Collaboration while the album itself is "the most focused and arguably the most rewarding record Atkins has released" (All Music); Sneakin' Around (1992) with Jerry Reed won the Grammy for Best Country Instrumental Performance, with Chet and Jerry "trading and stealing licks from each other with acute, long-simmering telepathy" (All Music); At 73-years of age Chet was at the top of his game when he recorded the splendid duo session The Day Finger Pickers Took Over the World (1997) with Australian guitarist / composer Tommy Emmanuel. Chet and Tommy chose "superior material for their acoustic guitars, with the rhythm section laying down swinging country beats underneath" (Guitar Player), it took his career out on a very high note.

Real Gone Music is a fairly recent reissue label created by the founders of Collector's Choice and Hep Cat Records. It pretty much runs the gamut in musical styles, part of which includes classic rock, psychedelic, progressive, jazz, '60s & '70s, soul, R&B, soundtracks, country and much more. Before we get to that, though, there are a couple items from Radiant Records that got left off of last week's newsletter.

Flying Colors/Second Nature .....CD $16.99

Flying Colors/Second Nature .....CD $16.99

Flying Colors' second studio album, Second Nature. The finest in muso-prog-pop!    Flying Colors band members, Mike Portnoy (drums, vocals), Dave LaRue (bass), Neal Morse (keyboards, vocals), Casey McPherson (lead vocals), and Steve Morse (guitar), have created their second, slightly proggier album that Portnoy says he likes even better than the first! Perhaps Steve Morse summed it up best when he said, "This is an album full of many layers. The more you listen, the more you can hear. It's an album to keep listening to."   Teaming the talents of such heavyweight names as Deep Purple/Dixie Dregs/ex-Kansas guitarist Steve Morse, drummer Mike Portnoy (Transatlantic, Winery Dogs, ex-Dream Theater), Neal Morse (Transatlantic, Spock's Beard and a prolific solo artist), bass player Dave LaRue (Dixie Dregs, Joe Satriani, Steve Vai and more) with a comparatively new talent, pop singer/songwriter Casey McPherson, the band challenged conventional wisdom about combining virtuoso music and melodic songwriting. Or, as the quintet's modus operandi was once memorably defined by founder Bill Evans, 'crafting new-fashioned music the old-fashioned way.'  Sporting stunning artwork from the legendary designer Hugh Syme (Rush, Aerosmith, Def Leppard, Whitesnake) and bookended by two tracks of truly epic stature - 'Open Up Your Eyes' and the multiple-part 'Cosmic Symphony' - the album is every bit as breathtaking as the debut. Portnoy stresses that the music's proggier path was "not conscious at all." The drummer continues: "Direction was never even discussed. We just did what we do. I think perhaps not having a producer to 'trim the fat' possibly led to the songs breathing and expanding a bit more." Perhaps Steve Morse sums things up best with the statement: "This is an album full of many layers. The more you listen, the more you can hear. It's an album to keep listening to."

Neal Morse/Songs from November ....CD $16.99

Neal Morse/Songs from November ....CD $16.99

The new album, set to be released on August 19, 2014, is said to be Neal's, "singer-songwriter - 'feel good' album."  Full of strong melodies and powerfully personal stories, it's not the prog album you might expect from the progmeister - these songs are from Neal's mellower, simpler side. In the words of one reviewer, 'Songs From November' is, "more in the vein of 1999's self titled CD and 2001's It's Not Too Late... despite the lack of Prog moments, this album is every bit Neal Morse."

Rick Wakeman/Rick Wakeman's Criminal Record ....CD $14.99

Rick Wakeman/Rick Wakeman's Criminal Record ....CD $14.99

Rick Wakeman was always something of a maverick within the proggy confines of Yes, so it's no surprise that for his sixth solo release - recorded right after he rejoined Yes in 1977 for the Going for the One album - he turned to the transgressive subjects of crime, punishment and villainy. And he got his just desserts - Criminal Record hit the charts in both the U.S. and U.K., where it went Top 30, and remains a favorite among his fanbase. Both Alan White and Chris Squire play on the record, which features (on "Judas Iscariot") the same church organ from St. Martin's church in Vevey, Switzerland used on Going for the One to great effect. Oddly, this standout record from Wakeman's catalog has only been available domestically on a limited-edition, long out-of-print CD; our Real Gone release adds notes by Bill Kopp and includes the text from the inner sleeve, which sets the stage for each song with scholarly notes on such charming subjects as the guillotine.

Dream Academy/Morning Lasted All Day: A Retrospective ....double CD $19.99

Dream Academy/Morning Lasted All Day: A Retrospective ....double CD $19.99

With their varied instrumentation, intimate song stylings, and poetic, allusive lyrics, the Dream Academy always stood apart from their '80s British rock brethren.  That they dedicated their hit song, "Life in a Northern Town," to Nick Drake and minimalist composer Steve Reich spoke volumes as to the reach of their intellectual and artistic ambition. Indeed, though they were together for only three albums and a handful of singles, Nick Laird-Clowes, Kate St. John and Gilbert Gabriel left behind a body of work as captivating as that of any of their contemporaries, their solid songwriting, unusual arrangements and innovative production touches (thanks in part to co-producer David Gilmour of Pink Floyd) only sounding better with age. Such a band deserves a proper retrospective; and so we at Real Gone Music enlisted none other than the band's own Nick Laird-Clowes to put together the definitive Dream Academy collection, a 2 CD, 24 track set chock-full of rarities and even including a new track ("Sunrising") recorded for this release! Alongside such hits as "Life in a Northern Town" and "The Love Parade" and key album tracks, The Morning Lasted All Day features such nuggets as the unreleased songs "Living in a War" (with David Gilmour on guitar), "The Chosen Few" (with Gilmour playing electric and slide guitar) and "The Last Day of the War" (a lost track recorded right after "Life in a Northern Town"); the unreleased and much requested instrumental of "Power to Believe" from the John Hughes directed film Trains, Planes & Automobiles, co-produced by Hugh Padgham; the rare B-side "Girl in a Million," and the long lost 12-inch side "The Demonstration."   Remastered by Laird-Clowes, and sporting photos taken from the band's personal archive as well as from a lost session by the legendary Arthur Elgort, The Morning Lasted All Day just may be the best double-album released this year, new or old!

Ides of March/Vehicle [Expanded Edition] ....CD $16.99

Ides of March/Vehicle [Expanded Edition] ....CD $16.99

With our release of well-received titles by Blood Sweat & Tears and Tower of Power, we at Real Gone have become something of a home for the great "horn bands" of the late '60s and early '70s, and with our reissue of The Ides of March's classic Vehicle album on the 50th anniversary of the band's founding, we are bringing another one into the fold. "The Ides" began in a basement in the Chicago suburb of Berwyn on October 16th, 1964, and have stayed together ever since; only the Rolling Stones really rival them for longevity. And this album, Vehicle, was their commercial highwater mark; its title track went to #2 and the album to #55 on the 1970 charts. It's a happy collision (no pun intended) of the band's garage-y British pop influences and the more progressive sounds of Chicago and BS&T that were sweeping through FM radio at the time.  Our Expanded Edition features four single bonus tracks and notes by Richie Unterberger featuring quotes from the band's Jim Peterik and Larry Millas.

Grateful Dead/Dick's Picks 16: Fillmore Auditorium San Francisco 11-8-69 ....triple CD $46.99

Grateful Dead/Dick's Picks 16: Fillmore Auditorium San Francisco ....triple CD $46.99

Reputedly one of Dead archivist Dick Latvala's favorite concerts, and the first of the Dick's Picks series to present a '60s show, Vol. 16 or, more specifically, disc one of Vol. 16, captures a crucial turning point in the band's history. There you will find embryonic versions of the songs that were to form Workingman's Dead, as the group begins to steer away from the psychedelic, blues-based jamming of their early years towards the country-rock pole star that was to guide much of their early '70s music (and the friendly hometown crowd at the Fillmore proves the ideal audience for the premiere of the new material). The rest of the show, however, features the earlier incarnation of the band at its finest; in fact, it's sort of an alternate version of Live Dead, which was recorded about eight months earlier and hit the stores just days after this concert, offering a truly inspired, 90 minute medley of "Dark Star"/"The Other One"/"Dark Star"/"Uncle John's Band Jam"/"St. Stephen"/"The Eleven"/"Caution"/"Feedback" capped off with a 25 minute "Turn On Your Lovelight" from the previous night. Pivotal performances from a remarkable period of growth for the Grateful Dead.

Esther Phillips/Alone Again Naturally [Expanded Edition] ....CD $14.99

Esther Phillips/Alone Again Naturally [Expanded Edition] ....CD $14.99

Following the 1972 release of her groundbreaking From a Whisper to a Scream album, Esther Phillips - who had enjoyed hits as a child star (Little Esther) in the '50s and as a R&B/jazz stylist in the '60s - was experiencing a career rejuvenation with Creed Taylor's Kudu label after kicking a long-time drug addiction and a spell in rehab. Keeping with the same basic formula of surrounding the distinctive soulful vocalist with redoubtable arranger Don Sebesky, top class label mates Hank Crawford, George Benson, Eric Gale and Ron Carter and all-star players (James Brown alumni Maceo Parker and rhythm arranger Pee Wee Ellis, Billy Cobham, Richard Tee, Cornell Dupree, Ralph MacDonald and Gordon Edwards), producer Taylor provided the perfect setting for Esther's interpretative skills. The result was the best selling Alone Again Naturally, a Top 20 jazz and Top 30 R&B album in 1973.

Cass Elliot/Don't Call Me Mama Anymore Plus Rarities [Remastered] ....CD $16.99

Dream Academy/Morning Lasted All Day: A Retrospective ....double CD $19.99

It is very hard to believe, but July 2014 marks the 40th anniversary of Cass Elliot's passing, and we at Real Gone are commemorating the occasion with a deluxe reissue of the great lady's final album, garnished with six bonus tracks. The package features rare photos and liner notes by Cass Elliot expert Richard Barton Campbell, with remastering at Battery Studios in New York. There's no telling how far Cass would have gone if she had had the opportunity to fully pursue this new artistic direction.  Don't Call Me Mama Anymore is the final statement of a true icon whose career was cut short way too soon.   As the title indicates, 1973's Don't Call Me Anymore marked a real break with Elliot's previous incarnation as Mama Cass of the Mamas and the Papas; at RCA Records, Cass was able to take control of her recording career, choosing songs that she wanted to sing. During this time, Cass decided to strike off in a new direction as a cabaret singer and put together a live show that barnstormed the U.S., with a particularly successful run in Las Vegas. This record, recorded over two nights at the renowned Mister Kelly's night club in Chicago, captured Cass reveling in her newfound role as an entertainer and singer of show tunes ("Extraordinary" from Pippin) and standards ("I'll Be Seeing You") as well as new songs like "I'm Coming to the Best Part of My Life" and the title tune. Our deluxe reissue of this wildly entertaining album - released with the full support of Cass' daughter Owen Elliot - offers six bonus tracks representing her complete final recordings, including the unreleased album outtakes "Make Your Own Kind of Music/New World Coming/Dream a Little Dream of Me" and "Don't Make Me a Memory," plus the RCA single tracks of "Listen to the World" and "I Think a Lot About You," a motion picture tune "Theme from L'Amour" and another previously unreleased gem, "Give A Little Laughter." The package features rare photos and liner notes by Cass Elliot expert Richard Barton Campbell, with remastering at Battery Studios in New York.

Gene Rains/Far Away Lands: The Exotic Music of Gene Rains ....CD $18.99

Gene Rains/Far Away Lands: The Exotic Music of Gene Rains ....CD $18.99

Among devotees of exotica music and tiki culture, vibraphonist Gene Rains is one of the Big Three of exotica - Martin Denny and Arthur Lyman being the other two. (Though Les Baxter had some notable releases in the genre, exotica was not his primary focus, so he isn't generally considered in the same league as the Big Three). Yet, while Denny and Lyman have seen their entire album catalogs come out on CD, and many collections compiled of their work, to date Gene Rains has remained a true cult figure, with NONE of his albums released on compact disc. Now, with its release of Far Away Lands - The Exotic Music of Gene Rains on CD, Real Gone Music is restoring Rains to his rightful place in the exotica pantheon. Liner notes by the CD's compiler, Randy Poe, and with art and sound assistance from exotica expert Mark Riddle.

Shirelles/Happy and in Love + Shirelles [Remastered] ....CD $16.99

Shirelles/Happy and in Love + Shirelles [Remastered] ....CD $16.99

One of the pioneering girl groups of the '60s, The Shirelles (originally Shirley Alston nee Owens, Doris Coley, Micki Harris and Beverly Lee) were the mainstay act at New York-based Scepter Records for a number of years, scoring hits with such classic songs as "Will You Love Me Tomorrow" (considered the first No. 1 single by a girl group), ""Dedicated to the One I Love," "Baby It's You" and "Soldier Boy" (another No. 1 single).  Both Happy and in Love and Shirelles are making their worldwide CD debut with this release, which also includes three non-album RCA singles as bonus tracks and liner notes by renowned UK writer David Cole with interview quotes from Shirley Alston. Remastered at Battery Studios in New York - another soulful collaboration between Real Gone Music and SoulMusic Records!

One of the most respected and active session singers of the mid '70s and early '80s, Ullanda McCullough's distinctive voice could be heard on numerous popular jingles (including 1971's Coca-Cola campaign, "I'd Like to Teach the World to Sing") as well as albums by Eddie Floyd, Blood Sweat & Tears, Patti Austin, Cissy Houston, Bionic Boogie, Carly Simon, Chic, Roberta Flack, Diana Ross, the soundtrack for the movie The Wiz and Ashford & Simpson, with whom she toured as a primary background vocalist during the late '70s. In 1979, Ullanda recorded her first solo album (Love Zone) for Ocean/Ariola Records before signing with Atlantic Records where she recorded two albums, a 1981 self-titled set and 1982's Watching You, Watching Me. Real Gone Music in association with SoulMusic Records is proud to present the worldwide CD debut of these two rare LPs, together on a two-on-one CD.  Ullanda McCullough was written and produced in its entirety by Nick Ashford & Valerie Simpson and includes the cut "Warm And Gentle Explosion," which became a popular rare groove track in the UK in the '90s along with other gems penned by the famed pair such as "Bad Company" (with a single edit included here as a bonus track), "Rumors," "It's You" and "You're Gonna Wanna Come Back." Key musicians included Simpson on piano, guitarist Eric Gale, drummer Yogi Horton, keyboardist Philip Woo and percussionist Ralph MacDonald.   Watching You, Watching Me was produced by renowned arranger/conductor and producer Bert DeCoteaux and featured an all-star cast of famed players (such as keyboardist Ray Chew, bassists Marcus Miller, Tinker Barfield and Wayne Brathwaite and percussionist Sammy Figueroa) and the cream of New York's session singers, including Luther Vandross - who did the background vocal arrangements for four of the album's eight tracks - Tawatha Agee (of the band Mtume) and Brenda White, who would go on to sing on albums by Vandross and tour with Aretha Franklin. Standout tracks include "Men Kiss and Tell," (originally recorded by Carrie Lucas), Ullanda's own "What's It All About" and William Eaton's compelling title track, covered in 1985 by Bill Withers. Liner notes by SoulMusic Records' founder David Nathan include an interview with Valerie Simpson.

Rick Wakeman/White Rock ....CD $14.99

Rick Wakeman/White Rock ....CD $14.99

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

Vanilla Fudge/Complete Atco Singles [Remastered] ....CD $16.99

Vanilla Fudge/Complete Atco Singles [Remastered] ....CD $16.99

Vanilla Fudge: The Complete Atco Singles continues the story from there with the singles taken from the band's epic, self-produced album Near the Beginning - featuring their fantastic cover of Lee Hazlewood's "Some Velvet Morning" - and from their last album for Atco, Rock & Roll, recorded while the band was headlining a tour with Led Zeppelin. Also included are the two single sides ("Mystery"/"The Stranger") from their 1984 comeback, and, as a bonus, the DJ promo edit of "Some Velvet Morning." With track-by-track liner notes from all four members of the band, great photos, and remastering by Mike Milchner at SonicVision, Vanilla Fudge: The Complete Atco Singles represents the finest single CD ditillation of the Vanilla Fudge discography yet assembled.

Grateful Dead/Dick's Picks 17: Boston Garden 9-25-91 ....triple CD $46.99

Grateful Dead/Dick's Picks 17: Boston Garden 9-25-91 ....triple CD $46.99

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

Grateful Dead/Dick's Picks 18: Dane County Coliseum Madison WI 2-3-78 + Cedar Falls IA 2-5-78 ....triple CD $46.99

Grateful Dead/Dick's Picks 18: Dane County Coliseum Madison WI 2-3-78 + Cedar Falls IA 2-5-78 ....triple CD $46.99

Sparking the critical hosannas was the truly revelatory "Scarlet Begonias"/"Fire on the Mountain" pairing from the Cedar Falls show (this 3-CD set actually contains excerpts from three shows: the 2/3/78 Madison show, an uncredited 2/4/78 Milwaukee show and the 2/5/78 Cedar Falls date), but "The Other One" from Cedar Rapids is easily one of the most intense versions extant, and the "Estimated Prophet"/"Eyes of the World"/"Playing in the Band"/"The Wheel"/"Playing in the Band" medley from Madison presents the band at their seamless, exploratory best. Out of print for years and a good place to start for the newly initiated.

Grateful Dead/Dick's Picks 19: 10-19-73 Oklahoma City Fairground ....triple CD $46.99

Grateful Dead/Dick's Picks 19: 10-19-73 Oklahoma City Fairground ....triple CD $46.99

The first full 1973 concert to be released, and the first concert of their uniformly excellent Fall '73 Midwest tour, Dick s Picks Vol. 19 captures the Dead a matter of days after the release of Wake of the Flood, the first release on their own Grateful Dead Records label, and over half the tracks from the album appear here, highlighted by stellar (no pun intended) renditions of Stella Blue and Eyes of the World. Both of those songs appear as the first encore on Disc Three, which may well be one of the finest single discs in the entire Dick s Picks canon; the disc leads off with a 15 minute Dark Star which segues effortlessly to Mind Left Body Jam leading into a truly transcendent reading of Morning Dew. Add Sugar Magnolia and a show-ending Johnny B. Goode to the set and you know everybody went home happy. Out of print for years!

Cannonball Adderley/Black Messiah [Remastered] ....double CD $20.99

Cannonball Adderley/Black Messiah [Remastered] ....double CD $20.99

In 1970, Cannonball Adderley recorded a series of concerts that resulted in three cult classic live albums, of which this double-album-produced, like other landmark double albums of the time like Soul Zodiac and Soul of the Bible, by David Axelrod - is the hardest to find. It captures Cannonball and the Quintet (brother Nat Adderley on cornet, Roy McCurdy on drums, Walter Booker on bass and George Duke - fresh from replacing Joe Zawinul, who had left to form Weather Report - on keyboards) at the forefront of the burgeoning electronic jazz-rock fusion movement, sounding at times every bit like the early '70s band of Cannonball's former bandleader Miles Davis, except maybe even funkier and more out there. Our Real Gone Music/Dusty Groove release features liner notes by Cannonball devotee Bill Kopp, with original art and added photos. Remastered by Maria Triana at Battery Studios in NYC.

Robert Bearns & Ron Dexter/Best of the Golden Voyage ....CD $16.99

Robert Bearns & Ron Dexter/Best of the Golden Voyage ....CD $16.99

Before New Age existed as a genre, Robert Bearns and Ron Dexter began creating their Golden Voyage series of albums in the 1970s to help listeners cross over "the rainbow bridge" and awaken "an all new fourth dimensional horizon." Now Real Gone Music is pleased to present the first-ever anthology of The Golden Voyage, offering a full-length, 79-minute collection of the best instrumental recordings from Bearns and Dexter's pioneering series. The liner notes by Greg Adams contain an exclusive interview with Bearns and Dexter's bass player, Ron Sukenick, who tells the untold story of this eccentric and visionary duo who helped shape California's New Age subculture in the 1970s and helped set the course of New Age music.

Spanky & Our Gang/Complete Mercury Singles ....CD $18.99

Spanky & Our Gang/Complete Mercury Singles ....CD $18.99

Having compiled the singles of such hit-happy artists as Gary Lewis & the Playboys and the Grass Roots, Real Gone Music now turns its attention to another quintessential '60s singles band, Spanky and Our Gang, with a 21 track collection that includes every unique A and B-side the band released on Mercury during their spectacular 1966-69 stint with the label! Liner notes by co-producer Ed Osborne that feature fresh interviews with Spanky McFarlane, producers Jerry Ross and Bob Dorough and arranger Jimmy Wisner along with some great photos. The definitive Spanky and Our Gang single-CD retrospective!

Patti LaBelle & The Blue Belles/Complete Atlantic Sides Plus ....double CD $29.99

Patti LaBelle & The Blue Belles/Complete Atlantic Sides Plus ....double CD $29.99

Before Patti LaBelle, Nona Hendryx and Sarah Dash morphed into the futuristic soul trio known as Labelle and became one of the greatest girl groups of the '70s, all three women - along with Cindy Birdsong were members of one of the greatest girl groups of the '60s, Patti LaBelle and the Bluebelles. Originally based in Philadelphia, the quartet enjoyed a modicum of chart recognition and sales during a two-year period (1962-64) with Newtown Records and then Parkway Records. After an appearance on a 1964 Atlantic LP, Saturday Night at the Uptown, the quartet signed with the label and recorded over thirty tracks for the label over a four-year period. This 2-CD anthology from Real Gone Music, produced and annotated by soul music historian David Nathan/SoulMusic Records and remastered by Alan Wilson at Western Star Studio.

X/Under the Big Black Sun [Remastered] ....CD $16.99

X/Under the Big Black Sun [Remastered] ....CD $16.99

A lot of people consider 1982's Under the Big Black Sun to be X's best album. And even those people who don't think it's their best album still consider it one of the best albums of the '80s. That's because it's their most personal and fearless record. The death of Exene Cervenka's sister spurred her to write some of the most wrenching, evocative lyrics ("Riding with Mary;" "Come Back to Me") of her career, and the band departed from their hard-and-fast roots to explore everything from Latin-cum-surf-tinged Tin Pan Alley ("Dancing with Tears in My Eyes") to something close to country rock ("The Have Nots"), while still serving up some anthemic rock and roll with "The Hungry Wolf." Our Real Gone reissue resurrects the expanded (with five bonus tracks) and remastered edition.

X/More Fun in the New World ....CD $16.99

X/More Fun in the New World ....CD $16.99

1983's More Fun in the New World marked yet another masterpiece for X; produced, like their first three albums, by ex-Doors keyboardist Ray Manzarek, it offered a surplus of great songs, highlighted by the riposte to the Reagan years ballad "I Must Not Think Bad Thoughts" and the rockers "Breathless," "Devil Doll" and "Hot House." This is the Expanded & Remastered Edition (complete with four bonus alternate demo/remix tracks and great liner notes/lyrics and photos) that went out of print years ago; it's an essential part of any rock library.

Fanny/Charity Ball [Remastered] ....CD $16.99

Fanny/Charity Ball [Remastered] ....CD $16.99

With the release of their debut self-titled album (also available from Real Gone Music), Fanny made history as the first all-female rock band ever signed to a major label, but it was on their second album when the girls really settled into a groove; in the words of drummer Alice DeBuhr, who supplies the notes for our Expanded Edition release, "We'd found our feet and were settling into the sound that would be Fanny." Indeed, buoyed by such tracks as "Cat Fever," "Thinking of You" and "Place in the Country" (which appears here in its original album version for the first time on CD), Charity Ball was a quantum leap forward for the group, and displays a much more surehanded lyrical and musical approach than its predecessor. Remastered by Mike Milchner at SonicVision - alternately tough and tender, and ALWAYS tuneful!

Eddie Kendricks/Love Keys ....CD $16.99

Eddie Kendricks/Love Keys ....CD $16.99

Having recently released a quartet of albums by David Ruffin, Real Gone Music now turns its attention to Ruffin's former running mate in the Temptations, Eddie Kendricks, whose mellifluous tenor and falsetto were such an integral part of the group's sound. Kendricks began his solo journey in 1971, leaving Motown in 1977 for a two-album, two-year stint at Arista Records. In 1981, Eddie signed with Atlantic Records for the one-off LP, Love Keys, which would be his last major label album (aside from a 1987 collaboration with fellow ex-Temptation, David Ruffin). The album represented Eddie Kendricks' first venture into Southern soul, and was the last charting solo set for the great soul singer, who passed away in 1992. It makes its worldwide CD debut here, with notes and added photos. A must for fans of Kendricks and the Temps, brought to you by Real Gone and SoulMusic Records!

Fifth Dimension/Earthbound [Remastered] ....CD $16.99

Fifth Dimension/Earthbound [Remastered] ....CD $16.99

The Soul City and Bell recordings of the original line-up of the 5th Dimension - Billy Davis, Jr., Marilyn McCoo, Florence LaRue (Gordon), Lamonte McLemore and Ron Townson - have been amply reissued in the digital age, with reissues of all their albums and collections too numerous to name. But Earthbound, the final album they recorded together after moving to the ABC label in 1975, has, due to some contractual confusion, been lost in limbo for almost four decades. Now, after years of persistent efforts, the legal log jam has come unstuck and Earthbound has been "unearthed" for this CD debut! Remastered by Mike Milchner at SonicVision, with liner notes by Joe Marchese featuring extensive, exclusive quotes from Marilyn McCoo and Billy Davis, Jr., and added photos and memorabilia.

Cowboy/Reach for the Sky ....CD $16.99

Cowboy/Reach for the Sky ....CD $16.99

Led by Scott Boyer and Tommy Talton, the Jacksonville band Cowboy was discovered by none other than Duane Allman, who, as legend has it, banged on their door at 7 am one day and asked to hear some songs. He then recommended them to Capricorn label owner Phil Walden, who sent Allman Brothers producer Johnny Sandlin to check them out; Sandlin ended up producing several Cowboy albums for Capricorn, of which this 1970 release was the first. Reach for the Sky features some great songs from Boyer and Talton, and has a loose, informal feel with acoustic guitars and harmonies a-plenty; over the years it s become quite the cult item, with copies of its long, long out-of-print CD release trading hands for well over $100. Our Real Gone reissue features notes by Scott Schinder, the original gatefold artwork (with lyrics) and photos. Fine, soulful Southern rock, long overdue for rediscovery!

Keith Allison/In Action: The Complete Columbia Sides Plus [Remastered] ....CD $18.99

Keith Allison/In Action: The Complete Columbia Sides Plus [Remastered] ....CD $18.99

Keith Allison took listeners where the action is on his 1967 Columbia Records debut LP In Action, packing its grooves with tunes from Tommy Boyce and Bobby Hart (including Action, Action, Action, the theme to ABC-TV s Where the Action Is, which featured Allison), Donovan, Neil Diamond, Ray Charles, and his future bandmates Paul Revere and the Raiders. On the album produced by California music icon Gary Usher Allison even introduced a future country-and-western staple in his own song Freeborn Man, co-written with the Raiders Mark Lindsay. Real Gone Music's first-ever compact disc reissue offers more action than before, adding twelve original mono single bonus tracks to the original eleven stereo pop nuggets. Joe Marchese's in-depth liner notes explore the Keith Allison legacy, Vic Anesini's remastering lets the music shine.

Ohio Express/Beg Borrow & Steal: The Complete Cameo Recordings ....CD $16.99

Ohio Express/Beg Borrow & Steal: The Complete Cameo Recordings ....CD $16.99

The tangled history of the Ohio Express is difficult to unwind, but the one constant in the band's chronology are the guiding hands of legendary bubblegum/garage producers Jerry Kasenetz and Jeffrey Katz, whose Super K Productions were behind hits by everybody from the Shadows of Knight to the 1910 Fruitgum Company to the Music Explosion. With regard to the Ohio Express, their first hit ("Beg, Borrow and Steal") was actually a song recorded by another band: the Rare Breed, who recorded it for Attack Records in 1966. The Cameo label then re-mixed and released the song, which went to #29 on the 1967 charts.Now, for the first time, ABKCO and Real Gone Music have assembled ALL the tracks recorded by this legendary bubblegum band for the Cameo label, including the entire Beg, Borrow and Steal album, four single sides and two unreleased tracks

Sweet Inspirations/Complete Atlantic Singles Plus [Remastered] ....double CD $28.99

Sweet Inspirations/Complete Atlantic Singles Plus [Remastered] ....double CD $28.99

Real Gone Music/SoulMusic Records is proud to present The Complete Atlantic Singles Plus, the largest collection of the work of The Sweet Inspirations ever compiled, drawn from their tenure with Atlantic Records from 1967 to 1971. Included in the 37 tracks are the A and B sides of the group's 18 singles (with the 1970 hit, "(Gotta Find) A Brand New Lover," originally released as Pt. 1 & 2, combined into one track), one cut unearthed from the Atlantic vaults in 2004 and previously only available on an out-of-print US compilation, and three previously unreleased sides (including a six-minute-plus medley of "Little Green Apples," Aretha Franklin's "Think" and The Beatles' "Something"). The 2-CD set includes photos and notes by SoulMusic Records' David Nathan, with remastering by Mike Milchner of SonicVision.

New York Community Choir/Make Every Day Count [Expanded Version] ....CD $14.99

New York Community Choir/Make Every Day Count [Expanded Version] ....CD $14.99

Released in 1978, their follow-up set, Make Every Day Count (with a group name change to NYCC), was produced - like its predecessor - by RCA executive Warren Schatz, and included seven original songs along with a cover of "I'll Keep My Light in My Window," a tune originally recorded by the duo Caston & Majors for Motown (later also cut by Diana Ross & Marvin Gaye). The album boasted arrangements by Leon Pendarvis (the co-leader of the Saturday Night Live band) and featured such stellar New York session musicians as Paul Shaffer and Richard Tee on keyboards, Jeff Mironov and John Tropea on guitars, Errol "Crusher" Bennett on percussion, Will Lee on bass and Steve Gadd on drums.

Lulu/Atco Sessions 1969-1972 ....double CD $28.99

Lulu/Atco Sessions 1969-1972 ....double CD $28.99

Atco/Atlantic had struck artistic and commercial gold when they brought Dusty Springfield to the States to record with Jerry Wexler, Arif Mardin and Tom Dowd and topnotch Southern session musicians, so it made sense for the label to introduce another great British pop-soul singer, Lulu, to the same stellar production team. And Lulu, who had just married Bee Gee Maurice Gibb, didn't need much convincing given the success of Dusty in Memphis. The result was two overlooked classics: New Routes paired the Scottish singer with the classic Muscle Shoals session squad of Barry Beckett, David Hood, Roger Hawkins and Jimmy Johnson, with Eddie Hinton, Cornell Dupree and Duane Allman all sitting in on guitar. And Melody Fair, which also came out in 1970. Those two albums comprise disc one of this two-disc set; the other disc features almost an album's worth of unreleased material produced by Dowd.

The Animals/The Mickie Most Years and More ....5 CD Boxed Set $89.99

The Animals/The Mickie Most Years and More ....5 CD Boxed Set $89.99

They were right among the first rank of British Invasion bands, with 11 American chart hits in their first two years of existence. They were responsible for some of the most enduring recordings of their era, songs like "The House of the Rising Sun" (which famously caused Bob Dylan to jump out of his car seat when he first heard it on the radio) and "Don't Let Me Be Misunderstood."! The Mickie Most Years and More offers for the first time ever on CD the group's first four American albums in their original mono versions, all newly remastered by Adam Ayan at Gateway Mastering from the original tapes. Liner notes to each album are by Rolling Stone's David Fricke and, to sweeten the pot even more, we're including an Animals T-shirt (size extra large) exclusive to this set.

Chet Atkins & Les Paul/Guitar Monsters [Remastered] ....CD $16.99

Chet Atkins & Les Paul/Guitar Monsters [Remastered] ....CD $16.99

After their 1976 smash Chester and Lester guitar duet album, Chet Atkins and Les Paul reunited in 1978 for another round of pickin' and grinnin' on Guitar Monsters. The front cover illustration shows a couple of dragons dueling, and it's appropriate; for all the often-hilarious byplay between the two ("I'm Your Greatest Fan" is a must-hear routine where each of them tries to compliment the other by attributing and playing famous guitar instrumental pieces by other guitarists to each other), there's no question that these two legends were friends and rivals, as each trade-off between solos just sets the bar higher. Guitar Monsters appears here for the first time on stand-alone CD with added notes by Chris Morris and a fresh remastering by Mark Wilder at Battery Studios in NYC. An absolute delight.

David Axelrod/Messiah: David Axelrod's Rock Interpretation of Handel's Messiah ....CD $15.99

David Axelrod/Messiah: David Axelrod's Rock Interpretation of Handel's Messiah ....CD $15.99

Cult composer/arranger/producer David Axelrod had already set classical themes to rock music on the Electric Prunes' Mass in F Minor when he went for Baroque in 1971 and tackled Handel's Messiah with frequent collaborator Cannonball Adderley conducting the orchestra. The instrumentation is psychedelic, swinging and groovy, but Axelrod's masterstroke was using a gospel choir for the vocal parts. First time reissued in any format - a Real Gone resurrection!

Blood Sweat & Tears/The Complete Columbia Singles ....double CD $20.99

Blood Sweat & Tears/The Complete Columbia Singles ....double CD $20.99

They were a pioneering jazz-rock outfit and a hit singles band (which shows how progressive pop music got in the late '60s/early '70s) that wowed fans and critics alike. Along the way, they also integrated elements of psychedelia, R&B, folk and classical music into their jazz-rock framework to produce an eclectic mix of recordings unlike that of any other band of the era. Blood, Sweat & Tears: The Complete Columbia Singles follows the band through every phase and configuration, and features five single versions/mixes making their first appearance on CD. Producer Ed Osborne s notes include fresh quotes from Steve Katz, and the entire set is beautifully remastered by Vic Anesini at Battery Studios in NYC.

Blue Oyster Cult/Imaginos ....CD $16.99

Blue Oyster Cult/Imaginos ....CD $16.99

The tangled history of Imaginos, Blue Oyster Cult's last (1988) album for Columbia, has passed into legend for BOC fans. The name and concept comes from late '60s sci-fi/fantasy writings by band manager/producer Sandy Pearlman that inspired the original band name; they then became the basis for a planned trilogy of solo albums by BOC drummer/songwriter Albert Bouchard, who had been working on the material since the early '70s with Pearlman. After Bouchard was fired from the band in 1981, he recorded a 90 minute album with such sidemen as Aldo Nova and the Doors Robbie Krieger, but this version of the album was rejected by Columbia execs in 1984. Our Real Gone reissue features a new 2012 remaster and new notes by BOC expert Scott Schinder, along with the original album and inner sleeve art.

Dr. John [The Night Tripper]/Gris Gris [Remastered] ....CD $16.99

Dr. John [The Night Tripper]/Gris Gris [Remastered] ....CD $16.99

"Gris Gris" is the New Orleans term for voodoo, and one could be forgiven for thinking this album was recorded in the dead of night in one of the city's famed graveyards. Well, it was recorded in the dead of night - at Los Angeles' famed Gold Star Studios, where Phil Spector recorded many of his classics. Long-time New Orleans session man Mac Rebennack wangled some free, after-hours studio time originally intended for Sonny & Cher, gathered the Los Angeles diaspora of New Orleans musicians - including Jessie Hill (known for "Ooh Poo Pah Doo"), Shirley Goodman (of Shirley and Lee), saxman Plas Johnson and percussionist Richard "Didimus" Washington - and adopted a new persona of Dr. John the Night Tripper. Our Real Gone reissue features notes by Richie Unterberger and added photos, with new remastering by Vic Anesini at Battery Studios in NYC.

The Electric Prunes/The Complete Reprise Singles ....CD $18.99

The Electric Prunes/The Complete Reprise Singles ....CD $18.99

The Electric Prunes' singles were punchier than their album counterparts, and were, above all, mono - yet to date, no legitimate collection has ever compiled these singles, many of which have never been on CD in their original mix. Now, for the first time, Real Gone Music has assembled all 23 of their original single sides for Reprise, which span several band line-ups and several legendary producers (Dave Hassinger, David Axelrod) with very different visions, yet remain of remarkably consistent high quality. Richie Unterberger's notes include commentary from the band and photos from lead vocalist James Lowe's private archive.

Maynard Ferguson/The New Sounds of Maynard Ferguson + Come Blow Your Horn: The Complete Cameo Recordings [Remastered] ....CD $18.99

Maynard Ferguson/The New Sounds of Maynard Ferguson + Come Blow Your Horn: The Complete Cameo Recordings [Remastered] ....CD $18.99

Everything the trumpet titan recorded for Cameo, his two 1963 albums plus an unreleased track, a version of "The Song Is You." Big band bop at its best, remastered straight from the original tapes and featuring liner notes and photos. First legitimate CD release!

Mick Fleetwood's Zoo/I'm Not Me ....CD $14.99

Mick Fleetwood's Zoo/I'm Not Me ....CD $14.99

Though this 1983 album is commonly thought of as a Mick Fleetwood solo record, it really was the product of a band, and one helluva band at that! Aside from the Fleetwood Mac drummer, the denizens of this Zoo include the great Billy Burnette and Steve Ross on guitar and vocals, session bass player supreme George Hawkins and, on background vocals, none other than Christine McVie and Lindsey Buckingham. Though the album was produced by Richard Dashut, who had produced Rumors and Tusk, I'm Not Me was almost the anti-Tusk, a low-key affair showcasing the considerable singing and songwriting talents of Burnette, Ross and Hawkins. CD debut!

The Grass Roots/The Complete Original Dunhill + ABC Hit Singles ....CD $18.99

The Grass Roots/The Complete Original Dunhill + ABC Hit Singles ....CD $18.99

The Grass Roots were, without a doubt, one of the great singles bands of the '60s and early '70s. So, why hasn't a collection of their complete, original Dunhill/ABC hit singles ever been released? Well, there's the little matter of the original mono master tapes. There are various stories about what happened, including one with Dunhill head Jay Lasker pitching all the label's multi-track recordings and mono masters after having deemed them obsolete. After a worldwide search for the best sources available, we are thrilled to announce that we have rounded up all two dozen Dunhill/ABC hit singles (including the censored and uncensored versions of "Let's Live for Today" and their biggest smash, "Midnight Confessions") and put them together into one AMAZING-sounding package!

"Dick" was Dick Latvala, the official tape archivist for the Grateful Dead until 1999, whose inspiration and encyclopedic knowledge of the band's vaults spawned the fabled Dick's Picks series of live Dead concert recordings. Comprised of 36 volumes, Dick's Picks follows the band on its long, strange trip through a multitude of eras, tours and venues, featuring handpicked shows that display the band at its visionary, improvisational height. Now, Real Gone Music is finally bringing this unparalleled cache of Dead concert brilliance to record stores - many of these volumes have never been available at music retail, and the others have been unavailable for close to a decade!

Jefferson Starship/Live in Central Park NYC May 12 1975 ....double CD $20.99

Jefferson Starship/Live in Central Park NYC May 12 1975 ....double CD $20.99

This is the Starship on the eve of the release of Red Octopus, mere months away from ascending commercial heights never attained by the Airplane, and the band is absolutely on fire there s a reason this concert ranks among the most treasured bootlegs in Airplane or Starship tape collector circles. And speaking of tape collectors, for this first-ever legitimate release we have worked with a tape provided by the band and filled in some gaps (including the long-lost ending of "Volunteers") with recordings contributed by collectors to present the complete show on two CDs mastered by Vic Anesini at Battery Studios.

The Mamas & The Papas/A Gathering of Flowers: The Anthology of The Mamas & The Papas ....double CD $18.99

The Mamas & The Papas/A Gathering of Flowers: The Anthology of The Mamas & The Papas ....double CD $18.99

Though A Gathering of Flowers was put together by ABC/Dunhill Records in 1970 immediately after the demise of the Mamas & The Papas, it was much, much more than the typical record label greatest hits collection cash-in. Not only did the 20 song double album include classic '60s cuts like "California Dreamin'," "Monday, Monday," "I Saw Her Again," "I Call Your Name," "Creeque Alley" and "Dedicated to the One I Love," but it served as something of an audio documentary of the band, offering rehearsals, outtakes and interview snippets from John Phillips and Cass Elliot in between the tunes. Remastered from the original tapes by Mike Milchner at SonicVision.

McGough & McGear/McGough & McGear ....CD $16.99

McGough & McGear/McGough & McGear ....CD $16.99

A spot of 1967 psychedelic whimsy from Roger McGough and Mike McGear (a.k.a. McCartney) of Scaffold fame, featuring some very 'eavy friends including Jimi Hendrix, John Mayall, Spencer Davis, Graham Nash and Mike's brother himself! Includes great photos and notes featuring quotes from our two protagonists.

Billy Preston/16 Yr. Old Soul ....CD $14.99

Billy Preston/16 Yr. Old Soul ....CD $14.99

Many folks only became aware of Billy Preston in the late '60s through his work as a Beatles sideman and his signing to their Apple Records label as a solo artist. But Preston had actually been recording for many years before that, and his first big break came courtesy of none other than Sam Cooke. Preston then still in high school was hired to play on Cooke's 1963 album Night Beat, and Cooke was so impressed with the teenager that he signed him to the Derby imprint of his SAR Records label, and got him in the studio right away to record 16-Yr. Old Soul. This CD debut yours courtesy of Real Gone Music and ABKCO Music & Records adds a couple of bonus tracks, "Sweet Thing" and "Win Your Love for Me," with sound overseen by ABKCO's Chief Audio Engineer Teri Landi and notes by Bill Dahl. '60s soul instrumental fans, take heed!

Maggie & Terre Roche/Seductive Reasoning [Remastered] ....CD $16.99

Maggie & Terre Roche/Seductive Reasoning [Remastered] ....CD $16.99

The transfixing, 1975 debut release from the Roche family, made by Maggie and Terre Roche right after their background vocal gig for Paul Simon on There Goes Rhymin' Simon. Simon and the Yardbirds' Paul Samwell-Smith are producers of this lost gem, while the Muscle Shoals rhythm section accompanies; Maggie Roche contributes liner notes and photos to this Real Gone reissue.

Sea Level/Cats on the Coast + On the Edge ....CD $18.99

Sea Level/Cats on the Coast + On the Edge ....CD $18.99

Sea Level started as an Allman Brothers offshoot, boasting three members (keyboardist Chuck Leavell, percussionist Jai Johanny "Jaimoe" Johanson and bassist Lamar Williams) from the mid '70s edition of the band, but became a major act in its own right with its tasty blend of jazz, blues and Southern rock. These two albums both came out in 1978 but chart major changes in the group; Cats on the Coast saw the addition of guitarist David Causey, percussionist George Weaver and multi-instrumentalist Randall Bramblett to the line-up, while Jaimoe and Weaver left and drummer Joe English (from Paul McCartney's Wings) joined for On the Edge.  Our reissue offers both records on a single, 70 minutes-plus CD, with notes by Scott Schinder.

Jeremy Steig/Wayfaring Stranger [Remastered] ....CD $14.99

Jeremy Steig/Wayfaring Stranger [Remastered] ....CD $14.99

One of the hippest, funkiest, most soulful albums ever from flute man Jeremy Steig - and a rare session for Blue Note! The feel here is a bit more stripped-down than other Steig albums of the time, with an especially strong focus on the bass of Eddie Gomez, who really gives the record a soulful sparkle. Don Alias plays drums, and there's also some sweet guitar from Sam Brown on the record too. Produced in 1970 by Sonny Lester - never before on CD, and reissued with new liner notes by Pat Thomas and the original gatefold art featuring Gomez's original notes!

T.O.N.T.O.'s Expanding Head Band/Zero Time ....CD $14.99

T.O.N.T.O.'s Expanding Head Band/Zero Time ....CD $14.99

Who is Tonto? Sure, he's the Lone Ranger's sidekick....but for electronic music fans, Tonto is T.O.N.T.O., or The Original New Timbral Orchestra, still the largest multitimbral polyphonic analog synthesizer in the world. "Multitimbral" means the instrument can play simultaneous notes with different tone quality, and in the hands of synthesizer designer Malcolm Cecil and producer Robert Margouleff, Tonto was featured by Stevie Wonder on such classic '70s albums as Music of My Mind, Talking Book and Innervisions as well as on albums by Weather Report, Stephen Stills, Quincy Jones, Steve Hillage and many other artists. But the Tonto legend got started right here, on this 1971 release from the Embryo label, and despite its huge influence on popular and electronic music, this reissue featuring Malcolm Cecil's own remastering from the original analog tapes marks its first domestic release on CD.

Tower of Power/Hipper Than Hip: Yesterday Today & Tomorrow (Live-on the Air & in the Studio 1974) ....double CD $23.99

Tower of Power/Hipper Than Hip: Yesterday Today & Tomorrow (Live-on the Air & in the Studio 1974) ....double CD $23.99

On May 14, 1974, Tower of Power went to radio station WLIR in Hempstead, Long Island and played a in-studio show that set the station ablaze as well as the radios of any listeners that were lucky enough to hear it. Flash forward nearly 40 years. On a whim, a tape collector sends us the show, saying that of his 10,000-plus recordings of live concerts, this set was his favorite. Well, people send us stuff all the time; but within five minutes of listening to this show, we know we HAVE to find a way to expose the public to this performance. So, fingers crossed, we send it to the band, and much to our delight, they agree with us. In the words of Emilio Castillo, founding member and leader of Tower of Power: "We were clearly at the top of our game firing on all 10 cylinders." Our release includes photos and liner notes by Leo Sacks.

The Tubes/Young & Rich + Now ....double CD $20.99

The Tubes/Young & Rich + Now ....double CD $20.99

One of the most original bands of the '70s has not been well-served by the CD era, as their classic second and third albums have been unavailable on CD for years (and Now never on CD in this country at all)! Includes such Tubes essentials as "Don't Touch Me There," "Slipped a Disco," "Cathy's Clone" and "God-Bird-Change." Gene Sculatti's liner notes feature fresh quotes from drummer Prairie Prince.

Rick Wakeman/No Earthly Connection ....CD $16.99

Rick Wakeman/No Earthly Connection ....CD $16.99

Coming on the heels of his epic Journey to the Centre of the Earth and The Myths and Legends of King Arthur and the Knights of the Round Table projects, erstwhile Yes keyboardist Rick Wakeman's 1976 LP No Earthly Connection was a relatively stripped-down affair with respect to its orchestration, employing the six-piece English Rock Ensemble for a metaphysical exploration of the musical essence of mankind's soul. This departure from the symphonic sound of hi _previous releases met with a decidedly mixed reaction from Wakeman's fan base; yet, of all his solo records, No Earthly Connection, with its move away from classical themes, has probably the most appeal to modern-day prog rockers. Our Real Gone release includes new notes by Gene Sculatti.

Mason Williams/The Mason Williams Ear Show ....CD $16.99

Mason Williams/The Mason Williams Ear Show ....CD $16.99

Released within a few months of his smash debut The Mason Williams Phonograph Record, The Mason Williams Ear Show is very much of a piece with its predecessor, except that its musical roaming goes even farther afield, as "Generatah-Oscillatah" brings a moog synthesizer into Wiiliams' ever-eclectic mix. Listeners drawn to this record expecting another "Classical Gas" definitely got more than they bargained for; The Mason Williams Ear Show is one of the first post-modernist pop albums. CD debut!

Mason Williams/The Mason Williams Phonograph Record ....CD $16.99

Mason Williams/The Mason Williams Phonograph Record ....CD $16.99

Produced by Mike Post with arrangements by Al Capps, Mason Williams' 1968 debut record for Warner Bros. scored a #1 hit with the instrumental "Classical Gas," and went to #14 on the charts. But there's a lot more to Phonograph Record than "Classical Gas" - check out the rollicking "Baroque-A-Nova" and the somber "Sunflower" for other sides of this multi-faceted artist.

Wishbone Ash/Live Dates II ....CD $16.99

Wishbone Ash/Live Dates II ....CD $16.99

Generally heralded as the best of the three Live Dates albums, this 1980 release never came out in America, and has only (briefly) come out previously on CD in Japan. It's the definitive record of the Andy Powell - Laurie Wisefield - Martin Turner - Steve Upton line-up, and this Real Gone reissue includes the limited-edition bonus material that accompanied only the first 25,000 copies made. We've added new liner notes to the original gatefold artwork - 79 minutes of twin-guitar magic!

Gentle Giant have been asked numerous times over the years by loyal fans of their music to provide high end audiophile 5.1 mixes of their recordings.It was not until the acclaimed musician and producer Steven Wilson approached the band to inquire whether he could become involved in remixing the album that the band decided to present this and future albums in their most state of the art form.

Renaissance/Scheherazade and Other Stories ....Hybrid SACD $25.99

Renaissance/Scheherazade and Other Stories ....Hybrid SACD $25.99

1975's "Scheherazade And Other Stories" is a beautifully crafted album, expertly sung and played by Renaissance. The recording is filled with lush, orchestral progressive pop-rock and considered by many music critics to be their best album.   Renaissance is a band that went through various permutations, the best known being the line up featured here and they shine throughout the album: Annie Haslam's soaring, pure vocals, John Tout's considerable piano prowess, Jon Camp's imaginative bass, Michael Dunford on guitar and Terence Sullivan on drums.  There are only four pieces on the album: "A Trip To The Fair" is a heavenly 11-minute dreamscape. "The Vultures Fly High" is a short but very effective prog-rocker. "Ocean Gypsy" is a gorgeous song, and one of the band's all-time classics. And then, of course, there's the 25-minute, nine-part epic, "Song Of Scheherazade," one of the highlights of rock history featuring the prog icon's unique interpretation of the Scheherazade legend accompanied by the London Symphony Orchestra and a chorus.  Aficionados of classical music will also appreciate the album.  Produced by Renaissance, mastered by Kevin Gray at Cohearent Audio.

Rush/Presto ....Hybrid SACD $31.99

Rush/Presto ....Hybrid SACD $31.99

Rush were never a band known to play the same sort of thing for any extended period, they often pushed the boundaries of rock and their formidable list of albums helped to bring prog to a wider audience. By 1989 a change was inevitable and with their 13th studio album, Presto, it was a change for the good. Presto marked the beginning of a transition period, moving away from a sound dominated by synthesizers and toward more traditional rock instrumentation. The synths were toned back while the guitars were brought up to a reasonable level allowing the emphasis to return to the rhythm instruments, resurrecting the groove that Rush maintains so very well.  Geddy Lee and Neal Peart are in good form, but Alex Lifeson is the real story, he can be heard in grand force and even pulls out the acoustic guitar. Lifeson's leads in "Superconductor" are brilliant, Geddy Lee does great solo work on "Show Don't Tell" and Peart's percussion on "Scars" features a complex tribal rhythm drum pattern in which both acoustic and electronic drums are utilized - a synthesis of the two that's accessible without compromising. Each of these tracks, along with "The Pass," reached the top of the Album Rock Tracks charts with "Show Don't Tell" hitting #1. Presto climbed to #16 on the Billboard Top 200 album chart.  Rush made a stab at greatness with Presto and Rupert Hine's deft production had much to do with its success.  Produced by Rupert Hine, mastered by Kevin Gray at Cohearent Audio.

Styx/Paradise Theater ....Hybrid SACD $31.99

Styx/Paradise Theater ....Hybrid SACD $31.99

Styx's 10th album, the 1981 release, Paradise Theater was the band's fourth consecutive triple-platinum album. A resounding success, Paradise Theater was their greatest commercial triumph and their only #1 album. It remains one of the best examples of the convergence between progressive rock and AOR which typified the arena rock sound of the top groups of the late-seventies and early-eighties such as Journey, REO Speedwagon, Cheap Trick and Kansas.  Styx was a great group of talented musicians - Dennis DeYoung, Tommy Shaw, James "JY" Young, Chuck Panozzo and John Panozzo. The album included three Billboard Hot 100 hits, "The Best of Times," "Nothing Ever Goes As Planned" and "Too Much Time on My Hands" considered among Tommy Shaw's finest singles ever. Another track, "Rockin' The Paradise" reached #8 on the Top Rock Track Chart.  The concept album is a fictional account of Chicago's Paradise Theatre from its opening to closing, used as a metaphor for America's changing times from the late 1970s into the 1980s.

In the UK they performed three sold-out shows at the legendary Rainbow Theatre in London's Finsbury Park, one in March on the "Queen II" tour and two in November following the release of "Sheer Heart Attack." To mark the 40th Anniversary of these shows, fans can finally enjoy Queen "Live At The Rainbow '74," lovingly restored, re-edited, mixed and digitally mastered and including much previously unseen footage. The main show is from November with, as a bonus, the only surviving footage from the March show. This is Queen dazzling their audience with an unforgettable show delivered with a skill and confidence which belied their youth.   Super deluxe collector's edition includes two CDs, a DVD and Blu-ray, a 60 page hardcover book containing rare photographs and various items of memorabilia such as reproductions of the tickets, show souvenir program and poster, as well as material from the band members' personal archives.

Nils Lofgren/Face the Music ....9 CD + DVD Box Set $145.99

Nils Lofgren/Face the Music ....9 CD + DVD Box Set $145.99

The stellar 45-year career of singer-songwriter-guitarist Nils Lofgren receives a comprehensive retrospective in Face the Music, a limited edition nine CD + one DVD boxed set that is individually hand signed and numbered by the artist.  The collection's music component, selected by Lofgren himself, comprises 169 tracks, stretching back to Lofgren's early work with his Washington, D.C. area band Grin, which he founded at the age of 17 in 1968, and surveying both his major label solo albums and independent self-released music. Two of the CDs contain 40 previously unreleased tracks and rarities. The DVD features 20 video clips selected from a body of performances as diverse as Nils' career.  A detailed, lavishly illustrated 136-page booklet, with an introduction by noted rock journalist Dave Marsh, contains Lofgren's track-by-track commentary and personal reflections on his work, as well as his tours of duty as a sideman with such luminaries as Neil Young, Bruce Springsteen, and Ringo Starr.  The set also contains homages to Lofgren by such colleagues as Bonnie Raitt, Joe Walsh, Sting, Bono, and Paul Rodgers.  In its entirety, the set gives a comprehensive, intimately detailed picture of the performer Neil Young - who hired the 18-year-old Lofgren to play piano and guitar on After the Gold Rush in 1969 - calls "an inspiration to me for many years." A true triple threat, Lofgren has distinguished himself as the writer of melodic, affecting, and hard-rocking songs, a sensitive and seemingly ageless singer, and a guitarist of incomparable power and imagination.

Chick Corea/Trilogy ....triple CD $23.99

Chick Corea/Trilogy ....triple CD $23.99

Trilogy is a recording to rank with the landmarks of Corea's career. Trilogy is a triple-CD set recorded live around the world with his spectacularly virtuosic trio featuring bassist Christian McBride and drummer Brian Blade, both star leaders in their own right (and previously the rhythmic backbone in Corea's Five Peace Band). A marvel of live recorded sound, particularly for having been captured in multiple stops on the road, Trilogy sees the trio reinvent classic Corea compositions (such as "Spain"), as well as previously unreleased originals ("Piano Sonata: The Moon"). The group also performs an array of jazz standards (including two Thelonious Monk tunes) and even re-imagines a Prelude by fin-de-siecle Russian composer Alexander Scriabin ("Op. 11, No. 9"). The recordings were made live in Washington, D.C., and Oakland, CA; in Spain, Switzerland and Austria; and in Slovenia, Turkey and Japan. Corea, McBride and Blade are joined by special guests on three tracks: flutist Jorge Pardo and guitarist Nin~o Josele in Madrid ("My Foolish Heart" and, aptly, "Spain") and vocalist Gayle Moran Corea, the pianist's wife, in Sapporo ("Someday My Prince Will Come").

Dr. John/Ske-Dat-De-Dat...The Spirit of Satch ....CD $15.99

Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee and six-time Grammy winner Dr. John is New Orleans' most prominent living musical icon. The embodiment of his hometown's freewheeling creative spirit and multiple musical traditions, he's built a visionary, idiosyncratic body of work that's deeply rooted in the Crescent City's myriad blues, R&B, jazz and rock 'n' roll traditions. So it's fitting that Dr. John's August 19, 2014 release on Concord Records, Ske-Dat-De-Dat...The Spirit Of Satch, pays heartfelt tribute to another larger-than-life New Orleans legend: the seminal trumpeter and vocalist Louis "Satchmo" Armstrong, whose musical innovations created the template for 20th-century jazz, and whose playful attitude and life-embracing spirit made him a beloved figure whose worldwide appeal transcended music. "He's the most famous guy that ever came out of my neighborhood," notes Dr. John. "He became a legend all over, for his trumpet playin' and everything else, and he was the United States' ambassador to the world."

Big Star/#1 Records ....CD $12.99

Big Star/#1 Records ....CD $12.99

Originally released in 1972, #1 Record is the debut album from Big Star, a critically acclaimed, Memphis-based band which is often credited with creating the power pop sound. Remastered from the analog stereo masters, this reissue will allow fans to appreciate #1 Record as a standalone CD - this is the first time in many years that the CD version of the album will be sold independently of Big Star's second album, Radio City. #1 Record is the only Big Star album which has the combined writing power of both founders, Alex Chilton and Chris Bell. Fervent Anglophiles, Chilton and Bell employed a Lennon/McCartney style of collaborative songwriting to create their debut - Chilton taking a visceral approach, often laying down guitar and vocal tracks in one take, while Bell added polish with overdubs and harmonies.  #1 Record has become widely recognized as a milestone album in the history of rock 'n' roll. In 2003, Rolling Stone included it in their "500 Greatest Albums of All Time" list, while the publication included song "Thirteen" in their "500 Greatest Songs of All Time" list the following year.

Big Star/Radio City ....CD $12.99

Big Star/Radio City ....CD $12.99

Radio City is the 1974 follow up to Big Star's debut, #1 Record. Remastered from the analog stereo masters, this reissue will allow fans to appreciate Radio City as a standalone CD - this is the first time in many years that the CD version of the album will be sold independently of #1 Record. One half of Big Star's songwriting duo, Chris Bell, made the decision to leave the band following the 1972 release of #1 Record, which left Alex Chilton at the helm as primary songwriter on album number two. Chilton was able to use this opportunity to shine and prove himself to be an incredible songwriter on his own. Journalists noticed: bearing a tongue-in-cheek title, Radio City garnered rave reviews and produced several cult favorites, including "September Gurls," which has been covered by everyone from The Bangles to Superdrag.  In his liner notes, Mike Mills writes, "On Radio City, Chilton confirms his place as one of the best songwriters in rock and roll. While 'September Gurls' may be the best-known song from this album, every other song here is one that I wish I'd written."

Saga/Sagacity ....double CD $17.99

Saga/Sagacity ....double CD $17.99

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

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

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

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

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

Since its opening chord, rock and roll has been about playing live, and no group did it better, and with more passion and improvisational skill than the original Allman Brothers Band. Nothing is truer than when the band achieved its artistic and commercial breakthrough in 1971 with the release of At Fillmore East, featuring extended renderings of their songs "In Memory of Elizabeth Reed" and "Whipping Post." It is often considered one of the best live albums ever made.  "The 1971 Fillmore East Recordings" is the five Fillmore east concerts compiled together in Blu-Ray, CD and LP formats - 37 tracks, 15 of which are previously unreleased.

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

When Chicago exploded onto the music scene with their stellar 1969 double-LP debut, Chicago Transit Authority, the band's innovative fusion of up-front horns in a rock 'n' roll context and impeccable pop sensibilities was an instant smash.

Premiata Forneria Marconi, better known in English speaking countries as P.F.M., were arguably the finest Italian progressive rock band of the 1970s and certainly one of the most well known. A successful act in their homeland, they came to international attention when they signed to Emerson Lake & Palmer's label Manticore in 1973. A series of albums such as "Photos of Ghosts," "The World Became the World," "Cook" and "Chocolate Kings" earned the band a loyal following in the UK, the USA, Canada and Japan, with interest in PFM in Britain gaining enough momentum to see the band being invited to perform two radio concerts for BBC Radio in 1975 and 1976 (at the BBC's Paris Theatre in London) and to participate in the classic BBC 2 TV series "The Old Grey Whistle Test" on a number of occasions.  These audio and video recordings have remained in the BBC archives and are released for the first time in this clamshell boxed set over two CDs and a DVD (NTSC / Region Free).  The set also includes an illustrated booklet with essay.

Goblin/Beyond the Darkness 1977-2001 ....import CD $22.99

Goblin/Beyond the Darkness 1977-2001 ....import CD $22.99

From Esoteric's distributor, Cherry Red, Beyond the Darkness is an anthology of the second half of the career of the composers Goblin, perhaps best known for the propulsive, labyrinthic scores which illuminate the horror masterpieces of Italian film director Dario Argento.  Goblin's genius lies in skilfully combining elements of progressive psychedelia with jazz-rock, eastern European folk music and the baroque. Their music often displays an eerie fairy tale quality that underscores tensions within a film to great effect.  If Bella Casa's 2012 box set, The Awakening documented Goblin's formative years, this edition comprises selections from ten films scored by the group across a twenty-five year period from 1977, culminating in Non Ho Sonno the Argento thriller for which this remarkable aggregation reformed to help create.

Tin Spirits/Scorch ....import CD $26.99

Esoteric Antenna are pleased to announce the release of the album 'Scorch,' the much anticipated follow up to Tin Spirits debut album 'Wired to Earth.'  As you would expect of a band that includes XTC's 6-string genius Dave Gregory, 'Scorch' is a celebration of guitars and harmony with songs that immediately captivate and engage. Lovingly crafted over two years 'Scorch' was mixed 'old school' with fingers on faders by acclaimed producer Paul Stacey (Black Crowes, Noel Gallagher), resulting in a sonic experience guaranteed to be a highlight of this year's new releases.  Along with Dave Gregory, Tin Spirits' fellow Swindonians Mark Kilminster (vocals, bass) and Doug Mussard (drums), as well as the Australian import Daniel Steinhardt (Guitar, vocals) notably of TheGigRig, have carved themselves a unique niche being unashamedly progressive yet entirely accessible. From the rapturous tones of the instrumental opener 'Carnivore,' to the introspective anthem 'Little Eyes' and the progressive epic 'Garden State,' "Scorch" is an album that shows Tin Spirits have truly come of age with one of the most exhilarating and satisfying releases of 2014.

Thee Image/Thee Image + Inside the Triangle [Remastered] ....import CD $26.99

Thee Image were formed in 1973 by former Blues Image, Iron Butterfly and Cactus guitarist Mike Pinera and keyboard player Duane Hitchings, formerly with Buddy Miles. Pinera's first band, Blues Image scored a US hit with the single "Ride Captain Ride" and had begun life as the house band of a Miami rock club called Thee Image. Pinera's skill as a guitarist meant he was a much in demand musician. After a spell in a reformed line-up of the hard rock group Cactus in 1973, Pinera formed Thee Image with Duane Hitchings on keyboards and talented drummer Donny Vosburgh (who had also played with Blues Image). The band was signed to Manticore in 1974 by Mario Medius who had known Mike Pinera from his time at Atlantic Records in New York whilst he was a member of Iron Butterfly.  Thee Image recorded their self-titled debut album at Criteria studios in Miami, producing a work of polished and sophisticated rock. Although "Thee Image" failed to chart, sales were encouraging enough for Manticore to continue to support the band with the recording of their next album, "Inside the Triangle" in 1975, albeit with a release in the USA only. This release gathers together all the tracks from both albums by Thee Image released by Manticore, newly remastered. The booklet features a new essay and fully restored artwork.

Bakerloo/Bakerloo [Remastered & Expanded] ....import CD $26.99

Esoteric Recordings are pleased to announce the release of a newly re-mastered and expanded edition of the classic self-titled 1969 album by Bakerloo. This progressive blues outfit formed in Staffordshire in 1968 and comprised Dave "Clem" Clempson (vocals, guitar, harmonica, keyboards), Keith Baker (bass) and Terry Poole (drums). Originally known as The Bakerloo Blues Line, the band emerged at the tail end of the British Blues boom, and soon expanded their musical horizons with Clempson's exceptional guitar playing ability at the heart of their live shows.  After shortening their name to Bakerloo, the band signed to Birmingham promoter Jim Simpson's Big Bear stable of artists, embarking on "The Big Bear Ffolly Tour" in the Autumn of 1968 with fellow acts Locomotive, Earth (later to change their name to Black Sabbath) and Tea and Symphony. Soon after Bakerloo had the distinction of supporting the newly formed Led Zeppelin at their first gig at The Marquee Club on October 18th 1968. The band signed to Tuesday Productions and recorded a sole eponymous album which was released on Harvest Records in November 1969. A promising live attraction, their career ended when Clem Clempson departed the group to replace James Litherland in Colosseum in 1970.  This Esoteric Recordings release has been newly re-mastered and features five bonus tracks (including a B-side of a single and four studio out-takes), a booklet that fully restores the original album artwork and a new essay.

Schnauser/Protein for Everyone ....import CD $26.99

Esoteric Recordings are pleased to announce the latest release on Esoteric Antenna - "Protein for Everyone" by the fabulously quirky band Schnauser.   "Protein for Everyone" caustically details the nagging neuroses bubbling under the surface of everyday life and imagines a brave new world where you can sell parts of your anatomy to be processed into cheap tasty meat for easy cash. Occasionally melancholic and blackly humorous lyrics are wrapped in a musical blanket of odd time signatures; fizzing with lively energetic progressive arrangements that have a pop sensibility, luring you in with three part harmonies and earworm melodies before wigging out on an inappropriate glockenspiel and fuzz bass solo in 10/8.  The album includes the epic, eccentric and wonderful lengthy track 'Dipsosable Outcomes.' Schnauser have been nominated in the September 2014 PROG Magazine awards. With influences such as early Soft Machine, Supersister, White Denim, The Mothers of Invention, Stephen Malkmus and the Canterbury scene, "Protein for Everyone" is one of the most original and striking releases in Progressive music of 2014.

John Kongos/Kongos [Remastered & Expanded] ....import CD $26.99

Esoteric Recordings are pleased to announce the release of a newly re-mastered and expanded edition of the classic self-titled 1972 album by John Kongos. South African born Kongos had some success in his native country in the early 1960s before moving to Britain to further his career. He recorded his first album for Pye Records' newly formed "progressive" label Dawn in 1970 before signing to Fly / Cube Records with whom he enjoyed two successful and highly creative hit singles "He's Gonna Step on You Again" and "Tokoloshe Man."  The album "Kongos" was released in 1972 and was a UK chart hit. Produced by Gus Dudgeon, "Kongos" featured a diversity of styles and experimentation and saw contributions from musicians such as Ray Cooper and Caleb Quaye.

The Gasoline Band/The Gasoline Band [Remastered] ....import CD $26.99

Esoteric Recordings are pleased to announce the release of a newly re-mastered edition of the super rare and now classic self-titled progressive jazz rock album by The Gasoline Band. The group came together in Berlin in 1969 when two Americans, keyboard player Fred Schwartz and trumpeter (and US Army bandsman) Larry "Fish" Brown came together to form a group that would fuse the influences of rock and jazz.  By 1970 Schwartz had assembled an ensemble of ten musicians, all hailing from a US military service background. Stylistic differences caused the band to come apart, but the Gasoline Band was the result. After playing concerts in Germany, Schwarz was offered a contract by Cube Records and in 1971 the various members of the band left the US Army and came to London to record their only self-titled album.  A fine fusion of rock and jazz, "The Gasoline Band" were championed by Old Grey Whistle Test presenter Bob Harris but sadly failed to make any commercial impact. The album is now hailed as one of the finest (and rarest) records of the genre and this Esoteric Recordings edition marks the album's first official UK CD release.  Newly re-mastered from the original tapes, the reissue includes a booklet that fully restores the original album artwork and a new essay.

Esoteric Recordings are pleased to announce the release of the official remastered edition of "Softsword," the album inspired by the life of the English King John and the story of the Magna Carta, recorded in 1991.  The album came to life following a commission Rick received to compose music for the finale of the 1991 Dickens Festival at Rochester on Medway in Kent. Rick subsequently adapted the themes he had written for this event and developed them into songs and instrumental pieces. The resulting album featured guest musicians Chrissie Hammond (vocals), David Paton (guitars and bass) and Annabel Blakeney (gemshorn) and took its title from the nickname given to King John by medieval English Barons.  Unavailable for some years, "Softsword - King John & the Magna Carta" has been newly re-mastered and features an illustrated booklet with a new sleeve design and continues the series of official Rick Wakeman releases on Esoteric Recordings.

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

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

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

United States Of America/The United States Of America - The Columbia Recordings [Remastered & Expanded Edition] ....import CD $25.99

Esoteric Recordings is pleased to announce the release of a newly remastered and expanded edition of the classic 1968 psychedelic rock album by The United States of America.  Perhaps one of the finest and most original of bands to emerge in the USA during the psychedelic era, the United States of America was formed in 1967 by the avant-garde musician Joseph Byrd (an associate of Yoko Ono who had studied with composer John Cage). After studying at UCLA in California, Byrd decided to form a band that would combine performance art, radical politics and experimental rock music. Recruiting former partner Dorothy Moskowitz (vocals), Gordon Marron (violin, ring modulator, vocals), Rand Forbes (bass) and Craig Woodson (electric drums), the band signed to Columbia records and recorded their self-titled album in December 1967. The sessions produced some of the most extraordinary music of the time, with pieces such as "The American Metaphysical Circus" combining tape looped effects, electronic sounds and rock to create a stunning opening to a fine album. Such a radical approach led to the album being hailed by critics upon release but receiving a poor commercial reception. Internal friction soon took hold and the United States of America had disbanded by the end of 1968.  This Esoteric Recordings edition is newly remastered and includes ten bonus tracks recorded during the sessions for the band's sole album and in May and July 1968. The reissue also features an illustrated booklet with new essay.

Esoteric Recordings are pleased to announce a newly re-mastered CD release of the classic 1972 debut album by the British rock outfit, Ellis. Formed in December 1971, the band was the brainchild of former Love Affair vocalist Steve Ellis.

The line-up of the band was completed with the addition of guitarist Andy Gee, drummer Dave Lutton (formerly with Heavy Jelly and The Grease Band) and bass player Jim Leverton (formerly with Fat Mattress and Juicy Lucy). Championed by former Jimi Hendrix Experience drummer Mitch Michell, the band secured a contract with Epic Records in 1972 and recorded their debut album the same year.

Their self-titled debut album was released independently on their own imprint, Negative Drive Records, and they released a 7" single - a cover of the Third Ear Band's 'Fleance' on the Fruits de Mer label, (which promptly sold out of its initial pressing after the band received BBC 6 Music airplay from Stuart Maconie on the Freakzone and by Tom Robinson.)  Hi Fiction Science now return with their sophomore, self-produced album 'Curious Yellow' - an album of original material that further defines the band's unique sound and optimises the haunting and soaring vocal talents of Maria Charles.  The album was recorded in Bristol at State of Art Studio and mixed with Jim Barr (Get The Blessing / Portishead). "Curious Yellow" is one of the most sensory provoking and memorable albums to be released in 2014.

I was pretty consistent with that frame of mind throughout the writing process."  Recently, Metal Injection's Greg Kennelty broke down Opeth's Pale Communion in a track by track review, exclaiming "This record knows exactly what it's doing and nails it through and through... one of my favorite records of 2014. If not my favorite record of 2014."  Pale Communion follows 2011's critically acclaimed Heritage which proved a milestone album for Opeth, earning them widespread acclaim and an ever-growing fan following. Debuting Top 20 on the Billboard 200 and racking up numerous 'Best Of' accolades in 2011, Heritage landed at #2 on both Decibel's "Top 40 Albums of 2011" and Guitar World's "Top 50 Albums of 2011" lists.

For this special occasion, we are including the rare original CD only release of Heartaches featuring a stellar duet with Valerie Carter and the super rare mono 45 rpm promo version of What Do You Want the Girl to Do.  In addition to the newly impeccably mastered original recording, we are also enclosing the original artwork elements featuring Neon Park's stunning front cover to enhance this wonderful and classic self-produced Lowell George album.  Mastered impeccably from the original Warner Bros. tapes by Joe Reagoso (Warren Zevon/ Boz Scaggs/ Elvis Presley), this amazing rock classic truly shines once again.

Ian Matthews/Stealin' Home ....CD $15.99

Ian Matthews/Stealin' Home ....CD $15.99

Iain Matthews' 1978 breakthrough solo release, reissued and expanded!  Iain Matthews rose to prominence as a vocalist for Fairport Convention in 1969. In 1971, he hit #23 on the Billboard charts and #1 in the UK with his band Matthews Southern Comfort and their cover of Joni Mitchell's "Woodstock." But, it was his ninth solo album, 1978's Stealin' Home, (released during the time he had temporarily dropped the second "i" from his first name) that solidified his place in the ears and on the radios of America with the album's #13 single, "Shake It."  Omnivore Recordings is proud to follow their reissues of Matthews' jazz collaborations (Joy Mining and In The Now) and his critically acclaimed "final" solo album (2014's The Art Of Obscurity) with the expanded reissue of this 1978 classic.  In addition to his cover of Terence Boylan's "Shake It," Stealin' Home features Matthews' mix of folk-pop, rock and R&B on originals and versions of tracks written by everyone from Robert Palmer to John Martyn to Rogers & Hammerstein! Matthews' rich tenor helps all of the songs blend perfectly.  To top it off, the CD features a bonus 9 track live set, recorded during the album's tour and previously available only in Japan, which contains songs from Stealin' Home, as well as material from other solo releases and his previous band, Plainsong. Add in a booklet with photos and notes, including a conversation with Iain and set co-producer Pat Thomas (who has overseen Omnivore's Matthews reissue campaign), and you'll want to get home for Stealin' Home!

David Lynch & Alan R. Splet/Eraserhead: Orignal Soundtrack Recording ....CD $17.99

David Lynch & Alan R. Splet/Eraserhead: Orignal Soundtrack Recording ....CD $17.99

It is with great pride that Sacred Bones Records announces its official, expanded, re-release of the soundtrack to David Lynch's landmark 1977 film, Eraserhead. This edition includes: a 16 page booklet, a four panel fold out double sided poster, digital download. The bonus song "Pete's Boogie" is a newly discovered Peter Ivers recording taken from the original audio tapes and mixed by Lynch himself. It was previously only available on the long out of print limited edition LP.   Eraserhead rests firmly at the top of that canon of American underground culture for which there is no genre. A staple of the dark underbelly of popular cinema that was originally only viewable at arthouse screenings or on the Midnight Movie circuit, Eraserhead is a truly unadulterated offering; and much of its sensation lies beyond the purely visual realm. The stark, dusty black and white images put forth are caked with and submerged in a dense jungle of industrial hums, buzzes, screeches and screams. Eraserhead is a narrative made up of two intertwined veins: one of bleak and beautiful pictures elegantly painted in gray and black, and one of blankets of sublime, enveloping noise and static, the tinkering of Fats Waller organ rolls echoing in the background.  To lay in the dark and listen to this dizzying succession of blissful noise is a different way to get "lost" than in the visuals of the film itself. It's no stretch to consider this soundtrack an experimental, early industrial masterpiece. Eraserhead's individual passion and personal tone shines through even in the thickest moments of fierce static, an audio undertaking that took David Lynch and sound designer Alan Splet years to perfect. Eraserhead's most famous piece of music is undoubtedly Peter Ivers' unforgettable, oft-covered haunting ballad "In Heaven," and the most exciting attribute of this edition of the soundtrack is no doubt its expansion, and it's present here, along with "Pete's Boogie," an Ivers recording previously only available on the long out-of-print limited edition LP of this soundtrack.   This CD version compliments the new release of the Criterion Collection edition of the film, Lynch's first entry in that prestigious series, and it will remain the only in-print edition of the soundtrack.

Celebrating the 40th anniversary of the release of his landmark concept album, Rick Wakeman presents the repackaged, re-recorded, extended Journey to the Centre of the Earth.   Based on the novel by Jules Verne, which will also mark its 150th anniversary in 2014, the album is one of the rock era's landmark achievements - a record that sold 15 million copies and rewrote the rules. "This is the start of a new Journey," says Rick Wakeman, "the original score for the album had been lost for so many years, making any new performances impossible.  But after it turned up without warning, we managed to restore it and add previously missing music that was not included in the original performances. It has taken another half decade to develop it into this album and tour, but I can't wait to take Jules Verne's magnificent story on the road again." The new, extended re-recorded CD of 'Journey to the Centre of the Earth' comes beautifully packaged complete with new original artwork from legendary artist Roger Dean.

Late for the Sky is the autobiography of his young manhood. Updated and re-released on CD from Inside Recordings.

Digitally remastered and expanded six CD box set of the legendary 1971 FILLMORE EAST RECORDINGS from four shows on March 12th and 13th, 1971 produced by Tom Dowd.

Bill Graham's theatre with a state of the art PA and Joshua light show always brought out the best in artists that performed on the stage. Graham called the ABB his favorite band and chose them as the closing act at the Fillmore East when he shut it down on June 27, 1971. That legendary performance is also included in this set. Contains 37 tracks including 15 that are previously unreleased. For years fans have clamored for the release of this material.

DREAM ACADEMY - Morning Lasted All Day: A Retrospective $19.98
Two CD collection from the British trio. With a lush Psych-Pop sound and lyrics inspired by the likes of Nick Drake and composer Steve Reich, Dream Academy stood out from the '80s British Rock pack.

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

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

Faithfull,Marianne - Dangerous Acquaintances $21.98
Digitally remastered edition housed in a mini LP sleeve that reproduces all the components of the original LPs and is an exact replica in compact disc size with authentic cardboard jacket and paper inner sleeve.

FRAMPTON, PETER - Hummingbird In A Box $10.98
Following a massive year of touring, including 2013's inaugural Frampton's Guitar Circus, Frampton is back on the road this summer.

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

GLASS / DAVIES - Sym1 Low $19.98

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

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

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

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

IRON BUTTERFLY - Live In Sweden 1971 $17.98
Brilliant vintage live performance from Iron Butterfly featuring a mind-blowing 24 minute version of the all-time psych rock classic ''In-A-Gadda-Da-Vida!'' The CD comes with 3 bonus studio tracks from the band s first two 1968 7 singles and is packaged in a deluxe reverse board digipak with detailed liner notes!

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

JETHRO TULL - Passion Play $39.98
Digitally remastered and expanded four disc (two CDs + two DVD-As) case-bound book edition including the original album, earlier Chateau d'Herouville sessions and two DVD-As containing 5.1 surround sound mixes of all of these recordings by Steven Wilson. A PASSION PLAY was the sixth studio album by Jethro Tull. Like its predecessor, THICK AS A BRICK (1972), it is a concept album the theme being the spiritual journey of one man in the afterlife. On release it had chart success around the world hitting #1 in the US and #13 in the UK.

JOHNSON, ERIC - Europe Live $15.98
EUROPE LIVE was recorded in venues across Johnson's tour of the continent, with the majority of the album capturing his appearance at Amsterdam's Melkweg along with selections from two dates in Germany. Each appearance featured a unique set list, offering Johnson the opportunity to cull this track listing from a wealth of repertoire captured.

MONTY PYTHON - Sings (Again) $15.98
Digitally remastered and expanded 25th Anniversary Edition of this collection of songs by the British comedy troupe. Alongside classic tracks like 'The Lumberjack Song' and 'Always Look On The Bright Side Of Life', this expanded edition features seven bonus tracks including four new recordings and three previously unreleased tracks.

MONTY PYTHON - Monty Python Sings (Again) (2cd) DLX $22.98
Deluxe two CD edition includes bonus CD containing 1970 album MONTY PYTHON'S FLYING CIRCUS, which consists of sketches from their TV show. Digitally remastered and expanded 25th Anniversary Edition of this collection of songs by the British comedy troupe. Alongside classic tracks like 'The Lumberjack Song' and 'Always Look On The Bright Side Of Life', this expanded edition features seven bonus tracks including four new recordings and three previously unreleased tracks.

NRBQ - Brass Tacks $16.98
BRASS TACKS is simply one of the best ever albums from NRBQ, overflowing with the unmistakable NRBQ sound and spirit, an original mix of pop, rock, jazz, swing, and more, delivered with impeccable musicianship, love, fearlessness, and joy, joy, joy. The new songs are great from start to finish, with 11 originals and a captivating version of Rodgers & Hammerstein's ''Getting To Know You''.

OCONNOR,MARK - Moc4 $12.98

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

PINNICK GALES PRIDGEN - Pgp2 $16.98
Dug Pinnick, Eric Gales and Thomas Pridgen enjoyed the experience of collaborating so much that they headed back into the studio to record a second album of psychedelic blues, hard rock and progressive soul / R&B together. Produced by Mike Varney, PGP 2 contains all the stinging bite and all-out sonic boom of King's X, The Mars Volta and the Eric Gales band. In addition, fans of artists as far ranging as Jimi Hendrix, Cream, Living Colour, Stevie Ray Vaughan, Tool and Liquid Tension Experiment might find something meaningful in these meaty, extended tracks.

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

STREAM OF PASSION - War Of Our Own $14.98

THOMPSON, RICHARD - Acoustic Classics $12.98
ACOUSTIC CLASSICS, a collection of newly recorded timeless Richard Thompson songs, features 14 tracks culled from his 40 plus year music career. 2014 release from the British Folk singer/songwriter, a collection of newly recorded timeless Richard Thompson songs. ACOUSTIC CLASSICS features 14 tracks culled from his 40 plus year music career. For the first time ever, acoustic versions of songs like “I Want To See The Bright Lights Tonight” and “Dimming of the Day” mingle with cornerstone classics like “1952 Vincent Black Lightning” and “Beeswing” as well as other acoustically rendered gems. His last proper solo acoustic release was the live SMALL TOWN ROMANCE and that was more than 30 years ago! In the meantime, the acoustic shows have evolved as a full parallel to his band tours. Thompson was named by Rolling Stone Magazine's as one of the Top 20 Guitarists of all time and considered one of the UK's most outstanding songwriters and musicians. The recipient of a BBC Lifetime Achievement Award, Mojo's Les Paul Award and curator of the prestigious Meltdown Festival at the Southbank in 2010, Thompson was most recently honored with a Lifetime Achievement Award for Songwriting by the Americana Music Association.

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

TOTO - Hydra LTD,COLL,RMST $21.98
Digitally remastered edition comes housed in a mini LP sleeve that replicates almost every aspect of the original album release.

Other highlights include the title track and 'White Sister.'

TOTO - Toto LTD,COLL,RMST $21.98
Digitally remastered edition comes housed in a mini LP sleeve that replicates almost every aspect of the original album release. Totos self-titled debut album from 1978 introduced the talents of a unique band unrestricted by music genre or style. Hit singles like 'Hold the Line,' 'Ill Supply The Love,' and 'Georgy Porgy' earned Toto a loyal following right from the start.

TOTO - Toto IV LTD,COLL, $21.98
Digitally remastered edition comes housed in a mini LP sleeve that replicates almost every aspect of the original album release. Toto's biggest album success worldwide was their 1982, Grammy-winning, hit-filled, triple platinum, TOTO IV. The album features some of the bands greatest singles including 'Africa,' 'Rosanna,' 'Make Believe' and 'I Wont Hold You Back.'

TOTO - Turn Back LTD,COLL $21.98
Digitally remastered edition comes housed in a mini LP sleeve that replicates almost every aspect of the original album release. Turn Back, Toto's third studio album, is a transitional album with stand-outs like the fast-paced opening track 'Gift With A Golden Gun', the catchy melodious 'If It's The Last Night' and the anthemic 'I Think I Can Stand You Forever'.

TROUT,WALTER - Blues Came Callin $15.98
TROUT,WALTER - Blues Came Callin SPEC,WDVD    $16.98
Recorded throughout 2013 and early 2014, the new album features twelve new songs including ten originals. Walter reunites with John Mayall on the title track ''The Blues Came Callin''' along with Mayall's ''Piano Boogie.'' Walter searches his soul on this album and lays it bare allowing new appreciation for life.

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

Here we have a collection of early recordings and curios, many previously unreleased versions.

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

BAKER, GINGER - Drummers Tale $31.95

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

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

2014 two CD release. Many people will know the name Bill Bruford and it isn't just restricted to those in their middle 40s or early 50s who remember him as a member of Yes or King Crimson, or perhaps many of the sessions Bill has managed to notch up over the years. These days, Bill fronts the Jazz quartet Earthworks and in addition to playing the odd session Bill seems more than happy playing dates as far afield as Japan and South America to enthusiastic Jazz audiences and music lovers in general.

Bruford - Rock Goes To College/Gradually Going Tornado 2CD $31.95
Digitally remastered two CD set containing a pair of albums from the legendary Rock/Jazz drummer: Rock Goes To College And Gradually Going Tornado.

Following his debut album Feels Good To Me and its successor One Of A Kind Bruford continued to produce intelligent, intricately crafted, and technically impressive music on Gradually Going Tornado, the third in a four album series by his astonishing group, Bruford. the album also features a shift in the sound with the addition of guitarist John Clark in for the departed Allan Holdsworth.

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

DAVIS, MILES - Complete 1960 Holland Concerts $41.95
EU-only three CD set. Miles Davis gave two concerts at Amsterdam's Concertgebouw in 1960 as part of a Jazz at the Philharmonic package, one on April 9 and the other on October 15. On the first, his quintet showcased John Coltrane, who had reticently agreed to join Miles for the gig and left the group shortly after. For that reason, he was replaced on the October performance by Sonny Stitt. Both concerts (in excellent sound quality) are presented here in their entirety, along with a second concert given by the group with Coltrane on April 9 in Scheveningen. As a bonus, we have added a quartet set by Coltrane with Miles' rhythm section recorded in Dusseldorf during that same tour (Miles didn't play on this filmed session because he wanted more money than what was available for the project).

Grant Green - Main Attraction With Hubert Laws CD $27.95
Digitally remastered edition of this 1976 album. Over the years, Grant Green has become one of the most revered guitarists in Jazz and is cited by many as one of the most talented and original guitarists of all time in any genre. The Main Attraction is a remarkable recording bringing together as it does all of his influences from Blues, Gospel and Bebop and wrapping them up with Dave Matthew's compulsive arrangements. When originally released The Main Attraction gave almost equal billing to flautist, Hubert Laws, who as can be heard, takes as much of a soloing role as Green on the almost 17min long title track. The albums concept has a cinema motif.

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

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

2014 album from the British Classic/Folk/Prog band.

Since forming back in 1996, Mostly Autumn have garnered themselves a name for their relentless touring schedule and outstanding live shows. They have built a loyal and cult following since their first album 16 years ago and in that time such luminaries as Steve Hackett, the late Richard Wright, and the late Jon Lord and the BBC's own Bob Harris are amongst their many fans. Bryan Josh is that rare beast - a hugely talented guitarist who knows how to play with feeling and for the song. His soaring guitar, always drenched in pure emotion, at times recall the golden era of guitar heroes such as David Gilmour but never outstays its welcome, always leaving the listener wanting a little more. Lead vocalist Olivia Sparnenn is a true talent, the range and beauty of her voice is world class.

SPARKS - Left Coast Angst Live Radio Broadcast $24.95
Live archive release from the Mael brothers. Taped during their tour for SPARKS IN OUTER SPACE, this set includes tracks from that album as well as songs from WHOMP THAT SUCKER and ANGST IN MY PANTS. Sparks' brand of quirky Pop is personified in the decidedly odd disparity between the band's two founders and front men: the corkscrew-haired falsetto-voiced pretty-boy singer, Russell Mael, and his keyboard-playing brother, Ron - he of the deadpan demeanor, piercing glare and austere moustache. In the late '70s, Sparks had found their Electronic format too difficult to tour and decided to once again revert to their more traditional Pop-Rock sound. It is this era that is so well documented by the excellent live broadcast recordings on this disc, which features the cream of their early 1980's recordings whilst the band were touring the USA.

STUMP - Does The Fish Have Chips $21.95
2014 collection from the quirky British band. Stump were definitely one-of-a-kind, a peculiar and highly innovative mix of Talking Heads, Captain Beefheart, '70s Art Rock and '80s Post-Punk. The Anglo-Irish quartet emerged in 1986 with an EP on Ron Johnson and the track 'Buffalo', which also appeared on the NME's C86 cassette. After a debut album QUIRK OUT on their own label, they signed in 1987 to Ensign and enjoyed some success with the single 'Charleston Heston' and album A FIERCE PANKCAKE.

The master tapes for this release have been supplied by Andy Scott from his archives.

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

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

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

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