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

DEEP PURPLE - Battle Rages On/Come Hell Or High Water UK $24.95
Deluxe two CD 20th Anniversary Edition includes the final recordings by the reunited Mk2 line-up of the British Hard Rock legends (Blackmore/Gillan/Glover/Lord/Paice). Released in July 1993, The Battle Rages On features some classic, ballsy Hard Rock, including the single 'Anya'. Despite playing what many consider to be some of their best ever shows in mainland Europe, especially during a lengthy 13 date German tour, Blackmore dropped the bombshell midway through the European leg that these would his last concerts with the band, making this a unique document of this remarkable band. Fortunately, two shows (in Stuttgart and Birmingham) were recorded, released in 1994 as Come Hell Or High Water, which makes up the second disc of this release.

DEEP PURPLE - Stockholm 1970 UK NTSC $36.95
Limited three disc (two CDs + NTSC/Region 0 DVD) live release from the celebrated MKII line up. In June '70, just five months prior to the recording of this incendiary Scandi-performance, Purple had unleashed IN ROCK, the album that both created and defined heavy Rock. For Purple, In ROCK was the ultimate statement of intent. IN ROCK was the turning point in the band's career. So to the Swedish capital of Stockholm on November 12, '70. Here, at the Konserthuset venue, riding high on In Rock's success, Purple had one simple, single-minded aim: to stretch the infant heavy rock genre to breaking point. With no borders, no boundaries, unburdened by gimmickry or heritage, on this live recording Purple simply erupt. There's an endearing naiveté to Purple's performance, too. A sense that, in unleashing the beast, the band didn't quite know how savage and dangerous this feral being would become.

DUNBAR, AYNSLEY RETALIATION - Aynsley Dunbar Retaliation UK $19.95
Digitally remastered edition of this 1968 album from the veteran British drummer and his band Retaliation. This first album from the group would prove the most successful of the four issued under the Retaliation banner, entering at least one of the charts that existed at the time. 'An exceptional debut,' purred Melody Maker, while New Musical Express also approved of the 'most attractive Blues music' it contained.

DUNBAR, AYNSLEY RETALIATION - Doctor Dunbar's Prescription UK $19.95
Digitally remastered edition of this 1968 album from the veteran British drummer and his band Retaliation. The second album recorded in 1968 has a rather spontaneous feel to it, which comes from the fact that, unlike the (also Ian Samwell-produced) debut, it had not been possible to take time off the road to routine it. Hence the songs were rather more straightforward in nature. Its title was a sly reference to Dr Ian Dunbar, an (unrelated) doctor who had prescribed cannabis as a medicine in the late '60s before it was classed as a banned substance.

DUNBAR, AYNSLEY RETALIATION - Remains To Be Heard UK $19.95
Digitally remastered edition of this 1970 album from the veteran British drummer and his band Retaliation. Curiously by the time this album saw the light of day, the Liverpool-born drummer who gave the group its name had left leaving singer, keyboardist and frontman Victor Brox to man the reins. But let this take nothing away from an album that is as accomplished and varied as any of its predecessors, as Brox enlists an assortment of talented musicians to complete what is a worthy addition, and end, to the Retaliation catalog.

DUNBAR, AYNSLEY RETALIATION - To Mum From Aynsley & The Boys UK $19.95
Digitally remastered edition of this 1969 album, the third from the veteran British drummer and his band Retaliation. At this point, Dunbar was looking to depart from straight Blues and take advantage of the musical freedoms that were letting Progressive Rock bands like Led Zeppelin and Black Sabbath make their mark. While they still retain their remarkable British Blues sound, this musical move is apparent in tracks such as the Bach-influenced instrumental "Journey's End" to the Jazz-Rock territory explored in "Let It Ride".

DYLAN V'S SEEGER - Singer & The Song UK $17.95
2014 two CD collection containing 40 legendary recordings. Pete Seeger, the granddaddy of the Folk protest movement turned out traditional Folk songs of the under classes and new songs with messages of peace, love and social justice played on simple chords; He was also one of the earliest champions of the young Bob Dylan, 22 years his junior, who would go on to become a reluctant 'voice of a generation' and one of the first true legends of popular music. The causes Seeger and Dylan championed over half a century ago may not burn so brightly in our collective conscience in these inward-looking days of social networking, but the words they wrote still resound. Their influence on the music of the last 50 years is impossible to overestimate.

Eloy - Reincarnation on Stage (Live) CD $36.95

Fairport Convention - Eagle Classics 3PC CD $38.95

FUNKADELIC - One Nation Under A Groove UK $29.95
Deluxe two CD mediabook edition including a bonus CD that contains the tracks from the EP that accompanied the original 1978 album from the Funk legends. Masterminded by the larger-than-life figure of George Clinton, Funkadelic was a key element of his highly influential P-Funk empire. With their unique combination of Rock, Psychedelia and Soul music, Funkadelic crossed over into the Pop mainstream and gained an international following. Regarded by many as the greatest Funk album of all time, ONE NATION UNDER A GROOVE was recorded at United Sound in Detroit and includes a live track from their concert appearance at the Monroe Civic Center in Louisiana in April 1978. The band's tenth studio album, One Nation... was also their most commercial and its title track spawned an international hit. Renowned for their wacky, cartoon-inspired artwork this is one of Funkadelic's most memorable and lauded creations. Featuring keyboardist and songwriter Walter Junie Morrison, the album also captures Michael Hampton at the pinnacle of his development as a guitarist.

G3 - Live in Tokyo 2PC CD $27.95

GLOVER, ROGER - Mask $18.95
Repressing. Digitally remastered reissue of this album from Deep Purple's ace bassist, originally released in 1984. Aside from his work with DP, Glover has also performed with, written and produced artists such as Ritchie Blackmore's Rainbow, Nazareth, Spencer Davis Group, Ian Gillan, Rory Gallagher, Michael Schenker and Status Quo amongst many others. This reissue includes the original artwork as featured on the vinyl release some 20+ years ago and bonus sleevenotes are also included. Eight tracks. Lemon Records.

Steve Hackett - Momentum CD $25.95

HACKETT, STEVE & JOHN HACKETT - Sketches Of Satie UK $27.95
EU repressing of this 2000 album. This collaboration by brothers Steve Hackett (ex-Genesis guitarist) and John Hackett is a skilled and sensitive interpretation of selected works by classical composer Erik Satie. The original works, composed for piano, were here arranged for classical guitar and the aforementioned flute. Flutist John Hackett has played on many of his brother Steve's solo albums, but this is the first full-scale collaboration between the two. The result is a soothing, satisfying, and sometimes haunting album.

KRISTINA, SONJA - Sonja Kristina UK $21.95
Digitally remastered edition of this 1980 album from the Curved Air vocalist. Sonja Kristina fronted Curved Air from its inception in 1970 until its split in 1976. She then embraced the vibrant music of the late 70s and formed her own band Sonja Kristina’s Escape (whilst her husband Stewart Copeland formed The Police). The album Sonja Kristina was released in 1980 and whilst it is credited to Sonja, it is really the band Sonja Kristina Escape who established themselves as one of the strongest bands on the club circuit in the late 70s.

Joachim Kuhn & Alexey Kruglov - Moscow CD $42.95

Yusef Lateef - Hush N Thunder (Limited Edition) (Remastered) CD $24.95

MAGNUM - Days Of Wonder UK $22.95
Live archive release from the British rockers. It isn't very often that you are afforded a front row seat at the birth of a legend...but this is one such opportunity! Recorded right back at the start of it all in a pub in Birmingham, UK, this invaluable recording shows the fledgling pomp masters Magnum honing the talents that would one day - and not so long after this show took place, if truth be told! - make them Rock n' Roll household names. Present here are early versions of classics like 'Kingdom Of Madness', 'The Battle' and 'Invasion'. This is a band waiting for its time to arrive and perfecting the skills to make the most of that time when it happens. The genius that is/was Tony Clarkin and the magnificent voice that is Bob Catley are all in place. So are the songs. Step aboard the time machine and enjoy the ride...

MAYFIELD, CURTIS - Superfly UK $29.95
Deluxe two CD edition of the chart-topping 1972 soundtrack album featuring a bonus CD that contains alternate takes, demos, radio spots, an interview and additional score. By the time Soul singer/songwriter Curtis Mayfield made his solo debut in 1970 he had already achieved much more than many artists do in a lifetime career. He had already enjoyed a string of hits as lead singer of The Impressions, for whom he was the principal songwriter, had produced successful recordings for other artists and was owner of his own record label and several publishing companies. This soundtrack to the 'blaxploitation' movie SUPERFLY stayed in the U.S. album charts for almost a year, topping it for four weeks in 1972 and earning Curtis a gold disc. Two singles taken from the album, the title song and the million-selling 'Freddie's Dead', both went Top 10. These two songs, along with the stark and sinister 'Pusherman', worked brilliantly in the context of the film, delivering a potent anti-drugs message.

Spirits Burning & Bridget Wishart - Make Believe Its Real 2PC CD $29.95

CRISPIAN ST. PETERS - Pied Piper: Complete Recordings 1965-74 UK $26.95
Two CD collection. Crispian St. Peters was a Folk/Pop singer/songwriter who enjoyed significant success in the mid-'60s, his career fuelled by some infamous boasts about his musical talents (his claim that he was better than Elvis and The Beatles caused an outrage at the time). Signing to Decca in 1965, Crispian broke through with the UK #2 hit 'You Were On My Mind' in 1966 (it also made the Top 40 Stateside), followed by perhaps his most famous song, 'The Pied Piper', which was Top 5 on both sides of the Atlantic. He also had a minor UK/US hit with 'Changes'. The Pied Piper does exactly what it says on the package: for the first time, this remastered set offers Crispian's complete recorded output for various labels across nigh on a decade, starting with early singles 'At This Moment' and 'No, No, No' and ending with a one-off single for Santa Ponsa.

WILD HORSES - Live In Japan 1980 UK $22.95
Live archive release from the Hard Rock outfit. Wild Horses had the pedigree to die for, tracing their lineage directly to Rainbow and Thin Lizzy, two of the most iconic Hard Rock acts in the history of the genre. In guitarist Brian Robertson and bassist/vocalist Jimmy Bain, they had a hard drinking, hard rocking heart and soul. Naturally, the land of the rising sun took Wild Horses to its heart in much the same way it had fallen head over heels for the band's illustrious parents and thus the band found themselves in Tokyo in October of 1980 in promotion of their second album. And the rest, as they say.... Recently discovered, this recording shows the band at the peak of its powers in front of a very adoring audience. Come back with us in time that magical evening....

WILLIAMS, LENNY - Spark Of Love: Expanded Edition UK $21.95
Digitally remastered and expanded edition of this 1978 solo album from the Tower Of Power vocalist. Lenny Williams really hit his stride as one of the premier black male vocalists of the '70s with the release of SPARK OF LOVE.

When it came to recording his sophomore ABC project, Lenny and producer Frank Wilson (known for his work with Eddie Kendricks, The Four Tops and others) decided to re-record the song as a ballad. Subsequently, the song has become Lenny's timeless signature tune, featured in numerous soundtracks and sampled by major rap and hip-hop artists, although never issued as a single

Ramsey Lewis - Lewis Ramsey-Complete Recordings 1957-1960 4 CD Set $15.98
This compilation features Ramsey Lewis' complete recorded output from his first album, 1956's Ramsey Lewis & His Gentle-men of Swing, through to 1960 and An Hour with the Ramsey Lewis Trio. The selection here includes eight complete albums originally released through this golden age for Jazz in general, and Ramsey Lewis in particular, including as it does collaborations with other jazz giants such as Jimmy Woods, Max Roach and Lorez Alexandria.

Ramsey Lewis - Lewis Ramsey-Complete Recordings 1960-1962 4 CD Set $15.98
By 1960 Ramsey Lewis and his Trio, while not yet the chart-toppers they would become by mid-decade, were among the hottest live draws on the US jazz circuit. Having already released eight albums, 1960's Stretching Out was their most commercial offering yet, but had a strong improv element that would continue on subsequent records. Its follow up, The Ramsey Lewis Trio In Chicago, was one of the Trio's most satisfying jazz albums, showing the group stretching out a little more than they had during studio sessions. Over the next couple of years the Trio would experiment with show-tunes, country, Bossa Nova and Christmas music, all of it of course in the group's inimitable keyboard-led infectious jazz style. Ramsey Lewis's fortunes were set to change within a few years, but this compilation, containing eight full original albums, all delightfully remastered, illustrates conclusively what a dynamic jazz ensemble The RLT were during the early years of their career.

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.

Paul Bley - Play Blue: Oslo Concert CD $17.98
A rare solo performance by one of jazz s great originals, Canadian pianist Paul Bley, recorded live at the Oslo Jazz Festival in 2008 by Jan Erik Kongshaug and Manfred Eicher. There is nothing else quite like a Paul Bley concert. As the New York Times noted, Mr. Bley long ago found a way to express his long, elegant, voluminous thoughts in a manner that implies complete autonomy from its given setting but isn't quite free jazz. The music runs on a mixture of deep historical knowledge and its own inviolable principles." Here Bley, encouraged by an attentive and enthusiastic Norwegian audience shapes music in the moment, plays his own compositions, and brings the music to a fine conclusion in a performance of Sonny Rollins s Pent-Up House.

Meredith Monk - Piano Songs CD $17.98
Celebrating Meredith Monk as composer, these Piano Songs give us a world at once playful and earnest. Written or derived from work composed between 1971 and 2006, the pieces inhabit Monk s unique universe, as played by two of new music s most distinguished interpreters, pianists Ursula Oppens and Bruce Brubaker. These pieces are songs because they have strong roots in Monk s pieces for voice, and because they are direct, specific, and imagistic. Meredith Monk on composing for two pianos: I delved into different relationships and possibilities between them; material passed back and forth, dialogues, interlocking phrases, shifts of figure and ground. In some pieces, I emphasized the individuality of each piano, writing for one player as the singer , the other as the accompaniment ; in other pieces I wanted the two pianos to make one large sound.

SACDs

Eric Clapton - Journeyman CD $31.98
Eric Clapton is a true legend. Journeyman reached #16 on the Billboard album chart and EC photo became Clapton's first solo studio album to go double platinum. Like any of his best albums, there is no grandstanding to be found on Journeyman...it's simply a laid-back and thoroughly engaging display of his virtuosity. The album was heralded as a return to form for Clapton, much of it has an electronic sound, mostly influenced by the 1980s rock scene, but it also includes blues songs like "Before You Accuse Me," "Running on Faith," and "Hard Times." There is an all-star assembly of guests: Dire Straits keyboardist Alan Clark, George Harrison, Chaka Khan, Daryl Hall, Robert Cray, Cecil and Linda Womack, Phil Collins and Gary Burton. Among the highlights are several cuts that feature slide-vs.-slowhand guitar dueling with Cray. George Harrison is particularly impressive on his little masterpiece "Run So Far," playing guitar and singing harmony vocals.

Styx - Paradise Theater SACD $31.98
Audio Fidelity - 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.

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

Djam Karet - Regenerator 3017 CD $18.98

DR JOHN THE NIGHT TRIPPER - Gris Gris RMST $16.98
Digitally remastered edition of this album from the New Orleans legend. 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. 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, he of the feathered headdresses and name taken from an 1840s New Orleans root doctor. The result was probably the spookiest and most hypnotic album ever made voodoo Psychedelia is about as close as you can come...

EDWIN, COLIN / FELICIATI, LORENZO - Twinscapes $20.98

With special guest appearances by acclaimed trumpeter Nils Petter Molvaer, saxophonist David Jackson (of Van der Graaf Generator), Swiss percussionist Andi Pupato (of Andreas Vollenweider and Nik Bartsch's Ronin) and drummer Roberto Gualdi (of the Italian Prog-Rock band PFM), this bass-dominant project, which was mixed by renowned bassist-producer Bill Laswell, travels from Ambient soundscapes to slamming Funk workouts and kinetic grooves to cinematic-sounding pieces that defy easy categorization.

PROFESSOR LONGHAIR - Last Mardi Gras $20.98
Digitally remastered two CD release. Professor Longhair was a seminal influence on several generations of Crescent City stars but was wasting away in comparative obscurity while the record companies either refused to cut him or sat upon the records he had already made. So Atlantic Records stepped forward with a 16-track mobile recording unit to get the job done. Thus armed, producer Albert Goldman set out to make the definitive Professor Longhair recording by capturing two nights of performances during (when else?) Mardi Gras in 1978 at (where else?) the Tipitina Club, and having the shows mixed by (whom else?) Cosimo Matassa, who engineered the original records of Fats Domino, Little Richard, Ray Charles et al. The result: the one indispensable audio document of the great man's career (and the last Mardi Gras he ever played).

Mike Keneally/Sluggo! (Deluxe Edition) ....CD + double DVD $34.99

SLUGGO! DONE RIGHT!  My 1997 album Sluggo! has been out of print forever, but it's finally coming back!  It features a great deal of unreleased audio and video material, and a new 2013 stereo and surround mixes of the Sluggo! album.  I've always felt the album is really good, but I've had reservations about the mix forever. It's a long story (told at length in the new liner notes in the reissue packaging), but the upshot is I'm finally completely happy with the sound of the album. Sixteen years after recording it, I finally feel like I've finished Sluggo!  Disc one is a CD containing the new stereo mix of Sluggo! (done in 2012 and 2013 by Mike Harris and myself), plus two bonus tracks.  "Craney" was recorded during the Sluggo! sessions, and originally released on Something With a Pulse, a benefit record for drummer Mark Craney. "Bob Dylan's Nose" was previously only available in a live version on the Soap Scum Remover VHS; it was originally intended to be part of Sluggo! This studio version of "Nose" was never completed, but it is a pretty scorching track recorded live in the studio by Bryan Beller, Joe Travers and myself.  Disc two is a DVD-Audio disc with the complete album in: PCM 16/48 Stereo, DTS 24/48 5.1 Digital Surround, MLP 24/96 Lossless Stereo, MLP 24/96 Lossless 5.1 Surround.  Disc Three is a standard DVD containing a plethora of material, including over two hours of live and studio video footage, the original 1997 Sluggo! CD mix, more bonus tracks, and additional ephemera.

Bigelf/Into the Maelstrom ....CD $16.99

Joined by Dream Theater's Mike Portnoy, on its fourth album Bigelf takes its cinematic heavy psychedelia to new heights.  Blending the band's root hard rock and prog influences with futuristic post-apocalyptic scenarios, Into the Maelstrom features some of Bigelf's most creative music and Portnoy's finest drumming.  Bludgeoning Sabbath guitars and dexterous ELP keyboards meet Mad Max!  Damon Fox says of the album, "It's about traveling through time into one's past and into the future to experience and examine your pain and fears in order to move forward in life.  A lot of my baggage from the my travels provides the cathartic inspiration. Deep, personal feelings like the tragic death of my best friend and former Bigelf guitarist A.H.M. Butler-Jones. And my fears of mankind eventually destroying itself a la Planet Of The Apes."

John Wesley/Disconnect ....CD $16.99

John Wesley/Disconnect ....CD $16.99

InsideOutMusic is extremely proud to announce the signing of renowned guitarist John Wesley for the release of his forthcoming sixth studio album 'Disconnect.'  John had this to say: 'Disconnect, is the culmination of all the musical input I have had in the past several years. I am a fan of so many different types of music and being able to perform with artists that take huge chances musically such as Fish, Porcupine Tree, and Steven Wilson led me to a new place creatively. My focus has been on playing guitar for so long, so the songs on this record really came to life on the guitar. I had a great team of musicians to work with and the result is my best work to date. With this album, I was able to achieve a more aggressive guitar-oriented sound that is coloured by my progressive influences. Disconnect has many of the same elements of my previous work -- lyrical depth, song orientation -- but I really feel that I pushed my boundaries musically, with my playing and the song arrangements, more so than in my past work. Inside Out is the perfect home for this album.'  John's last release was 'The Lilypad Suite' EP which came out in 2011 and since then he has been playing with the likes of Steven Wilson and Sound of Contact, as well as keeping busy with session work. 'Disconnect' marks his first full-length studio release since 2005's 'Shiver.'

Incura/Incura ....import CD $20.99

Everything about Incura appears to be as unique as their name, and the deeper you dig, the more you realize how true this sentiment really is. Their new self-titled album is the debut release for InsideOut Music and their first taste of new music since an independently released EP in 2009.  Incura's music is virtually unclassifiable. Genre-hopping across many different styles of hard rock and clearly inspired by the love of theatre, Incura takes you on a thrilling and adventurous ride. Their influences are an impressive, cross-cultural mix of the expected and the unexpected. Savage, crunching metal grooves segue into technical prog-rock prowess; classic rock arrangements nestle alongside operatic drama.  It's not the type of music you would expect from a young band who comes from a small Canadian city in the Prairies. And perhaps that's why the band packed their bags and moved to Vancouver shortly after forming in the late 2000's. It's clear this group has an original and creative vision for both their music and artistry. Even the band's name stands alone, with no other like it. In fact, it's a word they even created themselves by combining their old band name with that of a spell from the Final Fantasy games. And with that, Incura was born.  Incura spent a full two years writing numerous songs that would ultimately come to life on this new self-titled 10 song release. Yet despite the length of the creative process, which could cripple some young bands, the frantic urgency of this production is palpable. The songs literally scream to be let out, revealing a story waiting to be told and aching to be heard.

It's inspired by a bit of a dark time, but hopefully it's an uplifting record. I'm so proud of the people who played on it, working with people like Pat Mastelotto on drums from King Crimson and Jem Godfrey from Frost was amazing but all the players really were outstanding. Stuart Marshall (Fierce And The Dead) and Charlie Cawood (Knifeworld) were the rhythm section for a lot of the tracks. And it was great to have Chrissie back who played violin on the previous records. It's a record that reflects my love of Jesu and Celtic Frost as much as the Mahavishnu Orchestra and King Crimson or even Peter Gabriel and I'm really proud of it. If you're not going to take risks and try and do something interesting what's the point?"  As befits this most unique musician, "Lucid" is a carefully crafted work, and one that is surely to be one of the Progressive Rock highlights of 2014.

Sontaag/Sontaag ....import CD $26.99

In the grand tradition of high concept progressive rock comes an epic cross-media hybrid where cerebral science fiction meets visceral rock 'n' roll. Sontaag's eponymous debut album has been described as 'the rock opera that Pink Floyd never wrote,' 'a modern-day Tubular Bells,' 'a prog-rock War Of The Worlds,' but no reference point or sound-bite nails its seamless combination of space rock, narrative spoken word, and evocative ambience quite as neatly as 'sonic cinema.' Recorded in New York City and London, co-produced and mixed by Youth for Big Life Management, 'Sontaag' is a stunning and immersive listening experience. An evolutionary progression combining cutting edge sounds with classic dynamics, adapting the rock experience for today's digital environment.  Arriving in a landscape where music, books and movies often co-exist on a single handheld device, 'Sontaag' represents a seamless fusion of the finest elements of all three.   Sontaag (the band) features Richard Sontaag (composition, instruments, concept, co-production), Ian Fortnam (story, lyrics, voice, concept) with Milo Venter (drums) and Amanda Cross (vocals).

Dewa Budjana with Jimmy Johnson & Vinnie Colaiuta/Surya Namaskar ....CD $14.99

Recorded in Los Angeles during two sessions in 2013, Surya Namaskar (Salute to the Sun, in Balinese language) represents a significant change from Joged Kahyangan. While bassist Jimmy Johnson (Allan Holdsworth, James Taylor, Flim & the BBs) is back from that session, this time the drummer is the much in-demand powerhouse Vinnie Colaiuta (Herbie Hancock, Jeff Beck, Sting), with ubiquitous guitar session ace Michael Landau (James Taylor, Renegade Creation, Joni Mitchell) and drummer turned drummer/keyboardist Gary Husband (John McLaughlin, Jack Bruce, Allan Holdsworth, ) making valuable guest appearances on one track each.  The sum total of Surya Namaskar is most definitely greater than its individual parts. Together with his two previous MoonJune recordings - Dawai in Paradise and Joged Kahyangan - Surya Namaskar paints the ongoing portrait of a guitarist who may be a superstar in the Indonesian pop-rock world as a founding member of the multi-million selling Gigi (celebrating this year their 20th anniversary), but whose lesser-known credibility and, more important, visibility as a jazz guitarist is slowly but surely on the ascension as more and more international progressive jazz fans discover the depth, the heart, and the profound spirituality of Dewa Budjana, at fifty a new guitar hero of strength, creativity and significance.

Xavi Reija/Resolution ....CD $14.99

With the release of "Resolution," Xavi Reija's trio has delivered the goods first displayed in 2009's DVD of the Electric Trio (Live at Casa Murada). That release showcased three young and gifted progressive jazz players with impressive credentials and undeniable chops but, more importantly, brimming with fresh ideas. Shedding both keys and sax from the Xavi Reija Quintet format, the Catalan drummer from Barcelona has chosen to construct a leaner sound machine that, through careful sharpening of the remaining weapons in the arsenal, has produced some of the finest post-rock avant jazz out there today. Muscular polyrhythmic grooves of propulsive drumming and Bernat Hernandez' funk bass riffing lay the solid foundation for innovative guitar phrasings by Dusan Jevtovic which consider the space between the notes as significant as the notes themselves. And the notes? Elegantly played melodic jazz riffing and subtle volume pedalwork may ultimately yield to feedback and dissonance if the track calls for it. But the drum also waltzes. Delicate and thoughtful kit-work with deft guitar loops add texture and ambience to the sonic pallet making this trio feel more akin to a small orchestra scoring for some incredible film. There is an intelligence at work here – a painterly approach that enthusiastically seeks to redefine the sonic possibilities that the trio format can bring to the table. Another extraordinary talent discovered by MoonJune Records' cosmopolitan honcho Leonardo Pavkovic.

The band ventures into the fiery electro-jazz territories explored by Bianco and Delville's recent Machine Mass Trio, which also showcased both musicians' capacity to listen closely and improvise over unpredictable chord, rhythm and time changes while handling live electronics and computer loops.

Dewa Budjana/Joged Kahyangan ....CD $14.99

Dewa Budjana/Joged Kahyangan ....CD $14.99

Dewa Budjana may not be a household name outside of his native country, Indonesia, but with MoonJune Records picking up this exciting guitarist and composer, all that could be about to change. He's already garnered some serious attention with his first recording for the label, Dawai in Paradise, released earlier this year.  Joged Kahyangan, the guitarist's second international release, which features American jazz and fusion legends Larry Goldings (acoustic piano and Hammond organ), Bob Mintzer (soprano & tenor saxophone, bass clarinet), Jimmy Johnson (bass guitar), Peter Erskine (drums) and on one tune Janis Siegel (vocals) - may largely dispense with overt indications of Budjana's native roots, but there's another even more important differentiator: the album was recorded in a single day, with no prior rehearsals. Most of the songs were second or third takes, with the first take acting as the only rehearsal for the group, making Joged Kahyangan as close to a live album as Budjana has made to date, though he has released two live DVDs in Indonesia. What's most surprising is how well his musical partners navigate Budjana's charts; not unlike American guitarist Pat Metheny, despite an overall ambience that feels easy and accessible, Budjana's music reveals far greater depth under the hood. With more MoonJune recordings on the horizon and the possibility of taking his American friends on the road for the first time in 2014, Dewa Budjana's name is rightfully on the ascendance and his career on an equally upward trajectory.

Susan Clynes/Life Is... ....CD $14.99

Susan Clynes/Life Is... ....CD $14.99

"Life Is..." marks the international debut of Belgian singer/pianist Susan Clynes, on Moonjune Records. This release was compiled from three live concerts done at two different locations, each one with a unique band configuration.  The Archiduc, an historic Art Deco bar in Brussels dating back to 1937, served as the backdrop for two of these performances. The first was done in trio format with Nico Chkifi on drums and Pierre Mottet on bass. The second was a more intimate solo performance at the Library of The Cultural Center of Bree. The third and final performance saw the return to the Archiduc, this time as a duet with Simon Lenski on cello. Each band configuration provided its own framework and pallet of tonal colors for these diverse sound portraits.  "A Good Man" and "Ileana's Song" make playful use of the drumkit and bass. These clever songs lie somewhere between Slapp Happy-era Dagmar Krause, Elaine Di Falco's work with Thinking Plague, Annette Peacock and early period Kristin Hersh in her band, Throwing Muses. The chiefly instrumental piece, "Les Larmes," a composition about the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, is brimming with emotional expression making excellent use of the cello as a universal human voice.  The distilled and emotive songs for voice with piano accompaniment bring to mind such undervalued luminaries as Laura Nyro and Essra Mohawk. Susan's piano work runs the gamut from such radio-friendly performers as Tori Amos and Fiona Apple, briefly dipping into Tony Banks-like arpeggiations and cascades, and arriving at the jazz-inflected polytonality of French composer, Darius Milhaud.   (Susan Clynes provides vocals on one track on The Wrong Objects' album After the Exhibition, also released on MoonJune Records.)

Dusan Jevtovic/Am I Walking Wrong? ....CD $14.99

Dusan Jevtovic/Am I Walking Wrong? ....CD $14.99

The spectacular international debut of Serbian guitarist based in Barcelona, Spain - Dusan Jevtovic, is an edge-of-your-seat thrill ride, full of twists and turns that you never see coming. Am I Walking Wrong? showcases moments of immense raw, explosive power, interspersed with swatches of playful dissonance, contemplative ambiance, riveting R'n'B-tinged grooves, authoritative rock vamps, and more. The tight, abundantly-capable trio confidently stride through an engaging set of original barn-burners that are as catchy and accessible as they are spellbinding and unpredictable. Dusan wastes no time in making it clear that he is a vastly accomplished player, with a host of brilliant tones in his arsenal. Armed with a vocabulary most players would kill for (Oz Noy meets Robert Fripp, maybe? ...), this session cooks on high heat, providing fans of stellar guitar work -- especially the die-hard "tone freaks" out there! -- plenty of choice morsels into which to sink their teeth. This is progressive music at its most creative, and its most artfully- and skillfully-conveyed ... it just doesn't get any fresher or any more fun. With this fabulous release, Dusan Jevtovic has immediately cast himself as a vital, articulate new voice on guitar -- undeniably world-class, but nearly impossible to categorize or pigeonhole.  Featuring Bernat Hernandez from Barcelona on fretless bass and Serbian drummer Marko Djordjevic, based in New York City, a "world class drummers" and "a true innovator" (according to Modern Drummer Magazine).

Led by Jean-Jacques Goldman, Tai Phong was a very popular band of French melodic rock in the late seventies. Inspired by Pink Floyd and Yes, their elaborate music was perfectly sung and performed. It is not a coincidence that their former leader is now famous as one of the best French pop artists, especially sought after for his skills as a lyricist.

Fromage/Ondine ....import CD $21.99

Out of the bright Japanese symphonic era comes Fromage (French for "cheese"), a band created by Toshio Egawa (Gerard) and Ikkou Nakajima (Pageant). The first album, "Ondine," has been recorded without them though, in the year 1984. And that didn't prevent it for becoming one of the landmarks in the genre! The music of Fromage included all the ingredients and all the qualities of a style, magnified during the Eighties by the so-called Japanese progressive rock school. One could find sophisticated and complex themes, instrumental richness and worked-out arrangements, fineness of the melodies, beauty of the instrumental parts.  The Musea reissue adds the song "Kishibe No Nai Umi" as a bonus-track, to make this opus a real must-have!

The Musea reissue includes two live bonus-tracks, extending the album a quarter of an hour. Just brilliant!

Dave 'Knife' Fabris/Lettuce Prey ....import CD $21.99

Dave 'Knife' Fabris/Lettuce Prey ....import CD $21.99

The music of guitarist Dave 'Knife' Fabris has been steeped deeply in an eclectic pool of influences. A veteran of the New York and Boston rock scenes, he was a reserve guitarist for Bernie Worrell (Parliament), and played banjo for both of President Bill Clinton's inaugurations. He is currently a member of the experimental big-band, The Pittsburgh Collective, and is also involved with the punk cabaret trio, Impetus. Published on the Great Winds label, "Lettuce Prey" is music that is supported equally by the three legs of rock, jazz and classical. It has the guts and glory of rock heroes like Jimi Hendrix ("Angel" is featured as a guitar solo here). It possesses the surprise and intrigue of jazz improvisation, like Ornette Coleman's "Sadness," presented here in a quintet format. Lastly, it exudes the intricacy and depth of contemporary classical music: Charles Ives, Sergey Prokofiev and Aram Khasaturjan are among the composers presented here. But the intent is for the styles to coalesce.   That the heavy guitar bass and drum treatment of Alberto Ginastera's "String Quartet N. 2," for example, maintains the sublimation of the original while making the listener pump their fist in the air! Over the years, Dave 'Knife' Fabris has recorded and toured extensively with his mentor, third stream pianist Ran Blake, to great acclaim. The latter joins as a featured guest, including four tracks left over from their "Vilnius Noir" album. Ran Blake's fans will be interested to hear him playing Hammond B3 organ for the first time!

Amenophis is a very interesting German progressive rock band led by brothers Stefan & Michael Rossmann.  Recorded in 1983, their eponymous album shows a truly refined music, emphatic atmospheres full of rhythm changes.  There we can hear a blend of Steve Hackett, Genesis and Camel's best productions: a quiet, romantic and lyrical music.  The booklet of the Musea reissue includes a biography, archives and the integral lyrics. As a bonus, the album also has five previously unreleased tracks recorded that same year: an occasion to wander as a virtual tourist in the streets of Paris. After their first album's success, this German band added an excellent woman singer to its members, in order to record "You And I" (1991). "Time" is their brand new album from 2014. To be rediscovered without delay!

Skeem/...Just Suggesting ....import double CD $29.99

Neo progressive rock is a musical style dominated by Great-Britain since the eighties. While its historic bands IQ and Pendragon keep on with their careers with a true success, numerous modern line-ups try to perpetuate this tradition. If the Dutch and Italians were able to significantly erode this monopoly, the French are still waiting.  Arrakeen was the sole exception to this rule and achieved relative success in the early nineties. Nowadays, Skeem goes for it again, and with great style! Not only does it have excellent vocal lines in English (comparable to Jadis's Gary Chandler), but also Serge Barbaro himself performs excellent keyboards and guitar parts reminiscent of both Sylvain Gouvernaire and Nick Barrett. The line-up also includes a perfect rhythm section for it, given that it's no less than that of... Priam!!!

Glass/Palindrome ....import CD $21.99

"Palindrome," Glass' fifth album for Musea Records, marks a return to a vintage live sound. Produced by Glass bassist Jeff Sherman, the album was recorded in the band's hometown in the space the band recorded in back in the mid 1970s. It was recorded mostly live to two track analog tape using vintage analog instruments. In addition, three of the tracks were augmented by the incomparable sound of the of the 125 year old 1889 Whalley Genung pipe organ which resides in the Pt. Townsend Presbyterian church. The vision here was to be as free of preconceptions as possible for the three Glass members to produce a true Zen recording. The music here embodies all the classic Glass music elements - great melodies, complex time signatures and musical experimentation that still sound fresh even in this over-hyped digital era. Fans of Glass' earlier, more jazz-influenced improvisational work should be doubly pleased by Palindrome.

It was about as relaxed as I have ever felt on a stage and I'm indebted to all who came and created such an atmosphere in such a beautiful little church. I'm thrilled to announce that the DVD of the concert; The Boom Boom Boys shot and edited it, I mixed it myself, and it looks and sounds great! The vibe was lovely and I think we've captured it. There's also bonus material of a handful of excerpts from my diary - a few interesting days including prison in Poland, the Pulp Fiction evening in San Diego and the bizarre 37 hour flight to Mexico City via most of America (so that the FBI could arrest Cat Stevens, and - very nearly - me too..) - Steve Hogarth

Outer Limits/Outer Mania ....import CD $21.99

Outer Limits/Outer Mania ....import CD $21.99

Outer Limits is one of the major acts of the so-called eighties Japanese school of progressive rock. Famous for its exceptional melodic refinement, the band was also keen on a romantism that can be linked with the Italian school (Quella Vecchia Locanda, PFM, Locana delle Fate...). The group displayed a brand of sophisticated art-rock, with delicate and precious sounds, enlightened by lyrical violin parts, Mellotron layers and fine guitar arpeggios. Considered as the best and most inspired Japanese band, Outer Limits could have been one of the masters of progressive rock, somewhere between King Crimson and U.K., if only it had been British. Tomoki Ueno shines in the role of the opera singer, in the unmistakable style he has made his own. "Outer Mania" is the last opus to date: it's a compilation indeed, published in 1993.

Taproban/Strigma ....import CD $21.99

Taproban is an Italian progressive rock trio formed by Gianluca de Rossi on keyboards, Roberto Vitelli on bass, guitars and bass pedals synthesizer and Francesco Pandico on drums and percussion. The new line-up aim from 2012 was to close up the four elements tetralogy. Started in 2002 with the album "Ogni pensiero vola," inspired to the Bosco di Bomarzo carved-in-stone statues (Earth), and continued with "Outside Nowhere" in 2004, this time dedicated to space explorations (Air), and "Posidonian Fields" in 2006, inspired to the ocean abyss as a metaphor of human subconscious (Water), the elements tetralogy had to close up with the fourth element of Fire, this time associated to the female figure. The new album, Strigma, from the two latin words strix (witch) and stigma (brand), "the brand of the Witch." It starts with the track Nesia al notturno congresso delle streghe, about a 12 year old girl processed and condemned to death by the Saint Inquisition as a Demon slave, after having occasionally taken part to a Sabbath. Beautiful and terrible, she will rise again from her own hushes, like a Phoenix, to revenge herself against her dull and bigoted persecutors. In Lo sguardo di Emily the Fire turns on as Love and Passion. A girl and a boy are railing on parallels railways, but in opposite directions. Watching out the train windows, they look at each other in just one moment and they fall in love. The track is the story of that moment. The third track is a suite titled La porta nel buio, and it's about loneliness, considered as a place to find ourselves and an opportunity to mature and fortify our own convictions and intentions.

Ange is, no doubt about it, the most popular of the French progressive rock bands. Its music is based on Christian Decamps' unmistakable and melodramatic voice, his brother Francis' powerful organ sounds as well as on the development of energetic and intense medieval lines. The line-up invented its own style, both epic and delirious, and that blends madness, emotions and exacerbated feelings.  Their classic album, La Gare de Troyes, from 1983 is now available from Musea in a paper sleeve format

Banda Elastica/Aqui Alla y Aculla ....import CD $25.99

With apparent natural ease and talent, the seven musicians of Banda Elastica (guitar, bass, drums, percussion, flute & saxophone) strive to create works wavering between traditional free-jazz, improvised progressive rock and unstructured tango. Far from being disagreeable, their music rather turns out to be fascinating by any means, having nothing to do with the usual noisy experiments of the kind. Some minimalist pieces can even remind you of Klimperei's works, some others the great Frank Zappa. Marimbas bring a typically Latin atmosphere to the whole. In 2013 "Aqui, Alla y Aculla" is released: in three decades on the road, Banda Elastica has become an isolated territory inside the Mexican music scenario: Way exquisite for rockers, adventurous in excess for jazz lovers and a bit too joyful for the academic circles. Banda Elastica celebrates its 30th anniversary with this compilation of live tracks from different stages and line-ups: Knitting Factory (New York, 1994); Museo de la Ciudad (Queretaro, Mexico, 1999); Dokhuset (Trondheim, Norway, 2006); and the FestivAlterNativo (Queretaro, Mexico, 2006 & 2008 -with Chris Cutler, on drums-). Difficult to define but somehow influenced by Henry Cow, Zappa (Uncle Meat era), Spanish prog fusion band Musica Urbana and Stormy Six's "Macchina Maccheronica" with some Crimson twist. Deluxe edition with extensive liner notes (English and Spanish).

Distillerie di Malto/Suono! ....import CD $21.99

After 12 years since their debut album, Distillerie di Malto comes back on the recording scene with what can be called, in all respect, the disc of their maturity. Already in their debut, the band showed a remarkable expressive force that made Progressive rock fans and professionals exulting. The disc gained excellent reviews from several specialized fanzines and e-zines of all aver the world, selling a considerable number of copies, although it was self produced. The interest on the group reached Franz Di Cioccio too. He wanted Distillerie di Malto on his new label and give them the chance to play live before a PFM concert in Vercelli in 2003. After this experience Distillerie di Malto, today composed by Marco Angelone (guitar), Fabiano Cudazzo (keyboards), Alessio Palizzi (drums), Giuliano Torelli (bass), continued to write complex, hard, original music but never crossing the lines, with respectable melodic cues, and, after a very long route, realized the so much waited disc: Suono! This time under the known French label Musea Records, the work hits the target the band always aimed to reach: classic progressive rock without virtuosities and compromises, sometimes truly noble music. The group included three songs recorded some time ago, when Maurizio Di Tollo on drums and Luca Latini on flute played with them, into the 8 pieces, to connect past and present virtually.

AlanG/Around Us ....import CD $21.99

On his eleventh birthday, AlanG had a revelation when receiving his first Steve Hackett's record, Voyage of the Acolyte. Moreover, he says that it is this album that made him aware that music had to be part and parcel of his life.  Word for word, he applies Jaco Pastorius's maxim "keep one's ears attentive" by taking his inspiration from multiple musical currents: progressive rock, pop, classical music, world music. In 2006, with four other musician friends, he sets up the music group Pygmalyons, for which he will compose mainly the music. The group will know some local successes but will part on 2008, due to the personal aspirations of the members. After this separation, he keeps on composing nevertheless, and undertakes his album project "Around Us." As a guitarist, he never stops seeking the chords combination and serves music instead of shining with endless solos. AlanG provides a dense and melodic music at the same time, he loves mixing different styles in order to create a sound and a consistency...this album is a succession of 12 titles to enjoy without moderation.

Glenn Thomson/Artaud's Cane ....import CD $21.99

Glenn Thomson has spent a lifetime in the service of music. His baptism was the progressive rock of the seventies. His first reference points the European electronica of Tangerine Dream, Vangelis or Rick Wakeman, and then to jazz and the avant-garde with Joe Zawinul, John Cage and Ssu Ra. A keyboards player, session musician, producer and film composer, the Australian is uncompromising in his vision and always responsive to its call.  With his follow up to 2012's exciting debut, "Spidercraft UFO," Glenn Thomson dives deep into the progressive with "Artaud's Cane."   Special mention should made to the design of Marisa Passos who has worked with Thomson to create a true work of art rich with liner notes and resources, complimenting the music perfectly and giving the collector something to treasure. Glenn Thomson combines visionary musicianship with an expansive melodic palette that brings to mind the best of the progressive greats: Yes, Genesis and Vangelis. Lovers of the symphonic will delight in the magic of "Artaud's Cane."

Philippe Cauvin/Voie Nacree ....import CD $21.99

The leader of the atypical progressive rock group Uppsala has reinvented his beloved instrument, the classical guitar, and has created for the occasion a unique music. It can be described as a delightful mix of middle-aged songs and current hymns. This is a strange mix of classic language, church prayers and vanguard rock. Philippe Cauvin has one more thing playing for him: his voice. An almost woman-like singing, displaying weird imaginary words, which has apparently been made for us to dream.  At last, Philippe Cauvin offers a new opus, "Voie Nacree."  This album can be seen as the key for exploring an inner world . Throughout these eight new compositions, the artist invites the listener to a renaissance, opening the way to a new music without any interference. In these precious moments where magic is in the air, the heart and the guitar get together in unison, with a sincere and courageous generosity. Here's the perfect occasion to reinstate that privileged link with one of the major creators of its generation.

Sylvain del Campo/Fukushima ....import CD $25.99

Sylvain del Campo/Fukushima ....import CD $25.99

In 2011, saxophonist Sylvain Del Campo formed a new group along side organist Laurent Coulondre and drummer Pierre-Alain Tocanier. With this project and after forty concerts in France, they recorded a new album in April 2012. On this disc and the ten original songs written by Sylvain Del Campo will be found as a guest guitarist Manu Codjia. From album to album, Sylvain Del Campo continues quietly and digs its groove, true to his aesthetic choices. It is close to Vincent Herring and Kenny Garrett, which he fully assumes the stylistic heritage. Knows he says in this quartet and around its own compositions as a high-class alto whose supple and elegant game is a rare refinement. Themes marked bearings, climb the son of an imaginary driver who operates in a crescendo sequenced by strata. This group truly rooted in the great tradition of guitar-sax quartets turns out to be the bearer of hard work of its creator, and an immeasurable love for his choice of actors. The aesthetics and precision of improvised phrasing Sylvain Del Campo reminds us of a Kenny Garrett high times, that is to say outside a real mature game.

Alejandro Villalon Renaud/Simbiosis ....import CD $24.99

An imaginary soundtrack to a sci-fi movie. Not as cosmic as the Berlin school but definitely influenced by Tangerine Dream or Ash Ra Tempel. You may also find connections with Vangelis or Michel Huygens' Neuronium, of course. The listener is invited to collaborate with Alejandro Villalon Renaud, a new name in the electronic music scene in Mexico, in "Simbiosis" by contributing imagination and emotion to translate the recording's six vibrant tracks into six personal images and experiences.

Mahya/Their Sanitaric Maternities Request ....import CD $21.99

Mahya is the name of a current Japanese band, led by Dave 'Dogface' Kawamura. Along with Ohtani Masanori and Aketagawa Mitsuru, the leader of folk-rock band Homunculus performs a different kind of music here. Firmly rooted in the experimental genre, Mahya uses Mellotron, Ondes Martenot, 43microtone-organ, flute and many percussion instruments, in a very artisanal way. The band also shows a certain sense of humour, with a title Acid Mothers Temple would have been proud of: "Their Sanitaric Maternities Request."

The concept-album lovers will be on cloud nine, with references as diverse as Tricky, Radiohead, Pink Floyd or Magma. With this cinematic album, let yourself be carried away in a new dimension, and create your own story with "This Something."

Bernard Ros/Carnet de Voyage ....import CD $21.99

French guitarist Bernard Ros made a strong impression in Philharmonie, the band created by Frederic L'Epee after Shylock, especially by the use of Warr Guitar. Now established as a solo musician, in the true sense of the term, our man reveals himself as a disciple of a soft and etheral music, based on improvisation and loops. The works by Robert Fripp (with Brian Eno), or the piling up by Guillermo Cides, may come to mind. Released on the Dreeaming label, the first opus by Bernard Ros is named "Carnet de Voyage." Here are five long compositions, never boring, always thrilling, that should enchant the listener.

Cyrax/Reflections ....import CD $21.99

Cyrax/Reflections ....import CD $21.99

Cyrax is the meeting of inventive musicians living in the neighborhoods of Milan. Their debut album, Reflections, ranges from soft, gentle melodies to sharp heavy-metal topics, exhibiting a great variety of styles and composing solutions. Its beginning is somewhat aggressive - it is also sustained by 'industrial' electronic creations, while the second track introduces more classical/epic themes (except for the instrumental intrusion in the ending). Then, after a curious introduction, hard matters are followed by technical guitar-drums passages. The 4th track wildly returns on classical landscapes, the 5th is an instrumental composition where fascinating harmonic experiments take place. The next step is a very epic-metal chapter, introduced by a choir execution. Another one song exists, but nothing should be disclosed about it!

Built for this purpose as an equation in three factors and two unknowns, the trio Algebre, established by the composer Francois Cotinaud, invites for this chamber and experimental music Bruno Chevillon (double-bass), and the two drummers Francois Merville and Denis Charolles. Their recordings draw parabols, holograms, algorithms like timber flowers.

Peter Hammill & Gary Lucas/Other World ....import CD $21.99

Esoteric Recordings are delighted to announce the release of the first album collaboration featuring Peter Hammill, (Van Der Graaf Generator) and Gary Lucas, (The Magic Band, Jeff Buckley) . The fourteen tracks of "Other World" are the result of an invitation from Peter to Gary suggesting they might convene at the former's studio to see if some musical sparks might fly. Having first met in Aylesbury after a Hammill solo show in 1973, it was not until January 2012 that Gary arrived at the studio armed with instruments and some pieces which might be worth working on. As Peter explains in the notes below, sparks flew and against the odds, "Other World" unfolded with seamless speed. The majority of the recordings are produced by Peter and Gary's guitars and Peter's vocal though they are aided by a couple of pieces of found sound and loops.   The duo are so pleased with the results of the recording that they intend to play live and dates are being booked for early 2014 and will be announced shortly.

Magma/Live in Tokyo ....import double CD $39.99

This album, which is only released in Japan and which will not be released in any other version, documents two different shows from their 2005 Japanese tour. The first disc is the complete Kontarkosz Anteria (K.A.) which is by the long lived and fantastic lineup of Magma that existed during the '00s (Christian Vander, Stella Vander, James Mac Gaw, Emmanuel Borghi, Frederic D'Oelsnitz, Philippe Bussonnet, Isabelle Feuillebois, Antoine Paganotti, Himiko Paganotti) and has since broken up with a mostly new line-up taking their place. A great piece and a great performance. The second disc is potentially even more interesting, as it presents Le Voix de Magma (Christian, Stella, Isabell, Antoine and Himiko on vocals and Emmanuel on piano) performing Theusz Hamtaahk, Wurdah Itah and M.D.K.

Christian Vander's Alien Trio/Antibes 1983 ....import CD $25.99

Christian Vander's Alien Trio/Antibes 1983 ....import CD $25.99

This is by Vander's Alien Trio, which was a regular working group in the 1980s. Consisting of Michel Gaillier (formerly of Magma, and then a well-known jazz pianist in France) on piano, Alby Cullaz on double bass and Vander on drums, the group appeared at jazz festivals frequently, but for some reason they never left a document of themselves. Both Gaillier and Cullaz have since died and a decision was made to somehow document the group on record. Part of this is live recordings of bootleg quality - well fixed up, but still bootlegs - of the group at Antibes PLUS a bonus of five studio sessions for an aborted studio recording that never was completed. The studio tracks are extremely good quality and so who knows why this session was never completed, as it sounds great, both musically and sonically. But it never was. From Seventh - "A rare witness to the memory of an exceptional trio, this album will combine a live performance recorded from the core of the crowd in Antibes, in 1983 with long extracts from fully unreleased studio sessions. In February 1988 the trio entered the studio to work on an album, but the project never got off the ground. Following the death of Alby Cullaz in 1998, and Michel Graillier in 2003, we thought these recordings would never see the light of day. Time, however, has passed by and the moment has come to share both the moving intimacy of the studio sessions and the incredible energy of this unique concert; not only this, to honour the memory of these great musicians, such dear friends of ours who passed away before their time."

"This is right up there with the best of them for me," says Neal Morse. "Some reviewers have said they think it's better than The Whirlwind, which is pretty high marks in my view.  I think we stretched into some new areas on this one that are really exciting. Working with the guys again was just great!" Mike Portnoy says "I can't believe we did it again!

The Butterfield Blues Band/East-West ....Hybrid SACD $25.99

The Butterfield Blues Band/East-West ....Hybrid SACD $25.99

The Butterfield Blues Band had already shown on their first album that they had a definite command of the Chicago blues idiom. On East-West they open up and branch out without losing the edge and drive of their first recording.  East-West represented a watershed for pop music...more maturity, better musicianship, more exploration, more successful blending of other genres.  East-West stretches the boundaries of the blues, above any other extended piece of the mid sixties, a rock band finally achieved a version of the musical freedom that free jazz had found a few years earlier. It can also be heard as part of what sparked the West Coast's rock revolution, in which song structures with extended improvisation became commonplace.

In 1966 when this album debuted, it was nothing less than astonishing. A mixed-race band? A white guy singing blues? A Jewish kid and a southern farmboy sounding like Robert Johnson on guitars? The album was recorded at the famed Chess Studios in Chicago. It peaked at #65 on the Billboard pop albums chart. This album features traditional blues covers and the guitar work of Mike Bloomfield and Elvin Bishop. The edge this band had was it had people from Chicago, the home of urban blues, who had grown up and played with all the greats. East-West combines the emotion and power of the blues along with the swing and instrumental dexterity of a great jazz band. The two centerpieces of the album, the instrumentals "Work Song" written by jazz great Nat Adderly, and the title cut "East-West" are recognized by many as the first recorded versions of jazz-rock fusion put to vinyl.  "One of the greatest guitar albums of all time...A breath taking performance from beginning to end."  "One of the essential albums everyone must own...an American milestone recording."

Eric Clapton/Behind the Sun ....Hybrid SACD $32.99

Eric Clapton/Behind the Sun ....Hybrid SACD $32.99

"...another great recording...perhaps the most experimental of his career"   The musical climate had changed dramatically from the days Eric Clapton had topped the charts in the '70s. Follow The Sun is not his first album of the decade, but he obviously understood it was time to modernize his sound. After signing with Warner Brothers in 1983, Clapton bounced back on the music charts for the first time in five years, and solidified his return in 1985 with the instant success of Behind the Sun his ninth album.  Backed with a line-up of stellar musicians and producers Lenny Waronker, Rod Templeman and Phil Collins, Clapton for the first time in years now had several songs that reached a wider audience scoring Top 40 hits with "Forever Man" and "See What Love Can Do." He didn't abandon his old music, he just blended it more effectively and brought the flavor up to date by mastering the more electronic sound of '80s radio.

This album also had a heavy soul flavor with a really well produced version of Eddie Floyd's "Knock On Wood" and Clapton remained true to the blues with a brilliant eight minute track, "Same Old Blues," which contains some of his most electric playing of the era.  The sessions featured Toto guitarist Steve Lukather and former drummer Jeff Porcaro, as well as Clapton's long-time collaborators, drummer Jamie Oldaker, bassist Nathan East and keyboardist Greg Phillinganes. Clapton's voice had a rich new depth, like whiskey aged to perfection. The recording showcased blistering guitar solos, a high-octane R&B beat and a slick synthesizer-backed production, that was well-suited for the pop-rock market - The Guitar God was now serenading to a new generation of admirers and fans alike.  "Back in the spotlight...this comeback album is an underrated classic - Don't miss out on this gem!"

Heart/Magazine ....Hybrid SACD $31.99

Heart/Magazine ....Hybrid SACD $31.99

Magazine shows Heart while they are still an idealistic young band, before they became such a worldwide phenomenon. Their second album shows the same impassioned songs that marked the band's debut, Dreamboat Annie. They were really hard rockers back then. Ann and Nancy Wilson wove a tapestry of gypsy meets modern woman, and it is highly involved in the early songwriting.  The 1978 release was a victim of legal hassles with the label that delayed its release, yet the album boasts a mix of light and heavy tracks that are pure Heart. The rockin' "Devil Delight" and the bluesy-rock stomp of "Heartless"- one of their best songs ever!  There's the beautiful, sweet acoustic moment of "Here Song" and the smooth "Just the Wine" and the Badfinger/Nilsson cover "Without You"- Ann's vocals are incredible, she has the chops to belt out like Janis Joplin! There's the pure, slow and chugging blues of the "Mother Earth Blues" and the stomping, live recording, "I've Got The Music In Me."  Magazine eventually went platinum and peaked at # 17 on the album charts and the album's only single, "Heartless" landed on the Top 40 charts.   "A rare gem...a mix of ballads and straight out rock blues-metal at its purest."

Peter Paul and Mary/Peter Paul and Mary ....Hybrid SACD $25.99

Peter Paul and Mary/Peter Paul and Mary ....Hybrid SACD $25.99

"...the group that transformed American folk music into '60s pop."   Featuring two of the biggest folk hits of all time,"Lemon Tree" and "If I Had A Hammer" along with such classics as "500 Miles" and "Where Have All The Flowers Gone," Peter, Paul and Mary's self-titled 1962 debut album introduced one of the most popular, innovative and enduring folk music groups or all time.  Peter, Paul and Mary is a collection of the best songs that the group knew, stirring in its sensibilities and its haunting melodies, crossing between folk, children's songs, and even gospel; light-hearted just where it needed to be and earnest where it had to be. For a young group on their first album, this was meticulously produced and already showed their incredible sense of professionalism. The angelic voice of Mary Travers blends with Peter Yarrow's tenor and Paul Stookey's bass on some gorgeous harmonies.  It's one of the rare folk albums to reach US #1, staying in the Billboard Magazine Top Ten for 10 months, including seven weeks in the #1 position. At the Grammy Awards of 1963, their recording of "If I Had a Hammer" won the Best Folk Recording and Best Pop Performance by a Vocal Group awards. This classic recording helped to bring modern folk stylings to a mass audience for the first time. The album's innocent good spirit and optimism remains infectious even 50 years later.

Jon Anderson/Olias of Sunhillow ....Hybrid SACD $32.99

"This album is not just good Progressive music, it's in a class by itself...a Prog masterpiece!"
"The joy in this music is undeniable...Few works of modern music have found such a powerful communion between form and content."

Jon Anderson's Olias Of Sunhillow was released in the summer of 1976 and is one of his most acclaimed solo works. It's one of five solo albums released by members of Yes around that time and one of the most successful of those solo efforts, reaching No. 8 in the UK charts and breaking into the US Top 50.  The music is written and performed almost entirely by Anderson using synthesizers, tape loops, ethnic instruments, sound effects and different voices. Some of the synthesizer sounds ring of those found on contemporary Vangelis pieces with whom Jon had just recorded the year before. He emphasizes his interest in Celtic and Central Asian musical ideas much more here than before and creates a rich, evocative world.  Anderson has stated the album's concept was inspired by Roger Dean's 1972 Yes "Fragile" cover art as well as works by J.R.R. Tolkien. It's all as detailed and rich as any fantasy novel. It is a progressive rock concept album which tells the story of an alien race and their journey to a new world, an interstellar exodus from Sunhillow on a spaceship designed by the architect, Olias.  Olias glides along seamlessly from one piece to another, showcasing Anderson's uncommon gifts for melody and harmony as well as for songwriting. Together with arrangements that veer from the rustic to sci-fi, the music appears to travel through Earth and Space, incarnating the elements of the material and ethereal worlds. The scope of the music is cinematic, freely pursuing concepts to every corner of its vision and fashioning an experience that is as breathtaking for its range as it is for its depth.  The packaging features a series of artworks by the artist David Fairbrother Roe. "Olias of Sunhillow" is a "must have" for any Yes fan!

Alice Cooper/Billion Dollar Babies ....Hybrid SACD $31.99

Alice Cooper/Billion Dollar Babies ....Hybrid SACD $31.99

With Billion Dollar Babies, Alice Cooper refined the raw grit of their earlier work in favor of a slightly more polished sound resulting in a mega-hit album that reached the top of the US and UK album charts. It's impossible to overstate how popular the band had become by the time their sixth album was released. The album, is brilliant, decadent and encapsulated all the celebrity trashiness of the 70s only three years into the decade.   Song for song, Billion Dollar Babies is probably the original Alice Cooper group's finest and strongest. The album's singles "Elected," "Hello Hooray," "Billion Dollar Babies,"and "No More Mr. Nice Guy" all became hits on the Billboard Hot 100. Also included are a pair of perennial concert standards - the disturbing necrophilia ditty "I Love the Dead" and the chilling macabre of "Sick Things."  After the album was released, the band embarked on a tour which broke the US box office records previously held by the Rolling Stones. The show climaxed with a guillotine execution of Alice. The album and the tour made the band into the world's preeminent pied pipers of teenage trash culture and the most successful rock band ever to be loathed by American parents.

Warren Zevon/Excitable Boy ....Hybrid SACD $25.99

Warren Zevon/Excitable Boy ....Hybrid SACD $25.99

Warren Zevon's "Excitable Boy" includes the hit "Werewolves of London" and it's the record that brought Zevon to commercial attention and remains the best-selling album of his career. The album announced he was one of the most striking talents to emerge from the Los Angeles soft rock singer/songwriter community.  With this 1978 LP, Warren Zevon stepped forward as something of the dark prince of California. Jackson Browne once called Zevon "the first and foremost proponent of song noir." Excitable Boy threw in a mix of werewolves, mercenaries, drug abusers and paranoid spoiled brats, yet while frequently offering exceptional tenderness and insight. It was easy to see why Jackson Browne was his mentor and Linda Ronstadt his patron angel.   The personnel involved ensured that this collection would stand the test of time. All involved were arguably at their creative peak, from the production of Jackson Browne and Waddy Wachtel, to the stellar group of musicians and back up singers...Linda Ronstadt, Jennifer Warnes, Karla Bonoff, Russell Kunkel, John McVie, Mick Fleetwood, Jeff Porcaro, Rick Marotta...it would be easier to name those in Los Angeles who aren't on the recording....AH-OOOH!

Boz Scaggs/Boz Scaggs ....Hybrid SACD $25.99

Boz Scaggs/Boz Scaggs ....Hybrid SACD $25.99

"Boz Scaggs" could be a candidate for the greatest overlooked, unjustly forgotten album of the classic rock era. It wasn't overlooked in its own day, when FM radio was "free form" and could play 10 minute-long tracks, the amazing "Loan Me a Dime," a delicately soulful blues wail that evolves into a monstrous Duane Allman guitar workout, was a late-night staple. But the whole album is as good as that climactic moment. "I'll Be Long Gone" is an emotional inspiration. There are many other highlights...the emotional directness of "Look What I Got" and "Sweet Release" is heavenly soul.  "Boz Scaggs" is the second album by Boz Scaggs...it was released in 1969. The players on the album include a set of studio musicians, known for their down-and-dirty backing work for Aretha Franklin and Wilson Pickett, among many other Southern soul legends. The Muscle Shoals rhythm section, occasionally augmented by guitarist Duane Allman, gives this music genuine grit, not necessarily a straight-up blue-eyed soul record, even if the opening "I'm Easy" and "I'll Be Long Gone" are as deeply soulful as anything cut at Muscle Shoals.   This album is so complete, so rich, Scaggs obviously loves the whole wide expanse of soul, blues and R & B. The album is sequenced beautifully...it is almost flawless.The record was co-produced by Jann Wenner, founder of Rolling Stone magazine.

XTC/Skylarking [corrected polarity edition] ....import CD $20.99

Dear God attached, Andy Partridge's cover concept realised, and polarity corrected, this is Skylarking as XTC intended the world to see and hear it.  Produced by Todd Rundgren, the album was famously the most troublesome recording experience of XTC's career, yet the combination of the 'quintessentially English' band and the American 'studio wizard' resulted in one of the most successful and artistically accomplished albums of the mid to late 1980s.  It looked perfect... on paper. Take XTC, add Todd Rundgren, musical Anglophile & legendary producer, place in a studio together in Woodstock for several weeks and expect an album of Abbey Road proportions to appear when finished and...it almost worked out that way.  It even managed, eventually, to fulfill some of the enormous weight of expectation that had been placed on its shoulders prior to recording and it now sounds better than it ever did, though it took a most circuitous route to get from there to here.

When it came time to master the album on vinyl in 2010, Andy Partridge - still never entirely happy with the overall sound of the finished album - took it to award-winning mastering engineer John Dent, who noticed something that had never previously been spotted.  Somewhere, possibly in the transfer from the multi-channel tape to the stereo master, a polarity had been reversed. This is not the same thing as a reversed left/right channel which puts a stereo picture out of phase and makes the sound unlistenable, but a much more difficult to pin down event that can be triggered by something as simple as a badly wired plug in the overall system which, nonetheless, removes some of the punch and presence from a finished recording.  With the polarity corrected, the album complete with original artwork and Dear God was issued on vinyl.   Now, some 28 years after its initial recording & release, Skylarking finally appears on CD as it was originally intended to sound and in the packaging as initially envisaged.

Roger Chapman and The Shortlist/Live at Rockpalast 1979 ....import double CD + DVD $49.99

Total over 1 1/2 hours of restored concert performance film footage on region free NTSC DVD with both stereo and 5.1 surround sound and accompanied by remastered stereo soundtrack CDs.  Rockpalast is a legendary 'live' music TV show hosted in Germany by the WDR channel. It first broadcast in 1974 and has become a pan-European television institution. It has its own fan club and online forum, and in almost four decades, it has become a trademark of quality viewing and listening.  Although best known as a founding member of British rock legends Family, in actual fact, singer Roger Chapman's solo career now spans five decades. This show from 1979 catches him in hot rocking mode.   The performance from Hamburg in November ended an epic year for the singer - his solo career had just kicked off with the 'Chappo' LP, and three months before, he had recorded his noted 'Live In Hamburg' album at the same Markthalle venue. The TV executives present at the gig demanded a repeat performance for the cameras.  The Shortlist (named after a Mickey Jupp song) included seasoned veterans Tim Hinkley (piano), Jerome Rimson (bass), Stretch (drums) and Nick Pentelow (sax). Ex-Humble Pie guitarist Clem Clempson, drafted in for a UK tour, gave way to Geoff Whitehorn, who has become a long-time associate in Roger's bands. Backing singers Helen Hardy and Kathi O'Donoghue added a soulful feel to numbers like 'Bo Diddley,' 'Hoochie Coochie Man' and 'Can't Turn You Loose.'  Highlights include 1972 Family hit single 'Burlesque' (a real rarity in his early solo sets) and a cover of the Rolling Stones' 'Let's Spend The Night Together,' released as a single.  24-page booklet includes quotes and reminiscences from pianist & musical director Tim Hinkley and sax player Nick Pentelow.

Roger Chapman and The Shortlist/Live At Grugahalle Essen 1981 ....import double CD + DVD $49.99

Roger Chapman and The Shortlist/Live At Grugahalle Essen 1981 ....import double CD + DVD $49.99

Total over two hours of restored concert performance film footage on region free NSTC DVD with both stereo and 5.1 surround sound accompanied by remastered stereo soundtrack CDs.  Roger Chapman's Rockpalast appearance in October 1981 from the 8,000-capacity Grugahalle in Essen was groundbreaking. He was subsequently acclaimed Singer of the Year and then current studio album 'Hyenas Only Laugh for Fun,' would be voted Germany's Record of the Year. He remains revered today and, in 2004 was accorded the prestigious Lifetime Achievement Award for Services to Rock Music.  "We were the last band appearing," he would later recall of the show, "Going on about two in the morning and not wanting to stop. I think they turned the video off for the last hour of our set!"  That broadcast featured material from the albums 'Chappo,' 'Mail Order Magic' and 'Hyenas Only Laugh For Fun.' Personnel included former Family keyboardist Poli Palmer, ex-Meal Ticket multi-instrumentalist Steve Simpson (who still works with Chapman today) and the late, great Bad Company bassist Boz Burrell.  Musical highlights include the Mickey Jupp song 'Shortlist' - the band's signature tune - plus versions of Hendrix's 'Stone Free' and the Beatles' 'Sgt Pepper' (the latter played for the first and only time).  24-page booklet with detailed liner notes includes quotes and reminiscences from pianist and musical director Tim Hinkley, sax player Nick Pentelow and guitarist Steve Simpson.  Expertly restored and remastered. Superb vision, outstanding sound. The best in the business!

The Fixx/Live at Rockpalast ....import CD + DVD $40.99

The Fixx/Live at Rockpalast ....import CD + DVD $40.99

Restored concert performance on regeion free NTSC DVD with both stereo and 5.1 surround sound along with a remastered stereo soundtrack CD.  Peformance date: Markthalle Hamburg, 22 February 1985.  The Fixx was something of an anomaly on the British music scene as the 1970s gave way to the 1980s - as they were a 'New Wave' quintet that enjoyed far more success in the USA and continental Europe than they did back home in the UK.   The Fixx wrote and recorded melodic, concise new wave rock, led by the powerful and emotive vocals of Cy Curnin, with the strong guitar work of Jamie West-Oram and keyboards of Rupert Greenall offering contrasting musical depth and texture.  The band was a mainstay of the early days of MTV, with the videos for hits such as 'Red Skies' and 'Stand Or Fall' receiving heavy rotation airplay. This, and their willingness to tour the USA, ensured that they became one of the most successful British acts in the States in the mid 1980s, and - unlike many of their 1980s contemporaries - their music has stood the test of time extremely well.  Their commercial peak came with the album 'Reach The Beach' (1983) and their follow-up, 'Phantoms,' was the album being promoted when they recorded this 'live' session on 22nd February, 1985. It is a heady mix of the US hit singles, with choice tracks from their albums, and the DVD shows the kind of powerful performance that turned them at the time into a popular 'live' attraction.  The detailed liner notes include new quotes from the band.  Expertly restored and remastered.

Black Sabbath/The Complete Albums 1970-1978 ....8 CD Box Set $62.99

Black Sabbath/The Complete Albums 1970-1978 ....8 CD Box Set $62.99

The original lineup of Ozzy Osbourne, Tony Iommi, Geezer Butler, and Bill Ward, four childhood friends from the north of England-grew out of the U.K's late '60s blues/hard rock scene, which also included Led Zeppelin, Cream, Blue Cheer, and other greats. Sabbath's sweeping and masterful metamorphosis away from that tradition spawned heavy metal music, inventing the template for everything that would follow. With crushing rhythms, torpedo riffs, haunting songs, and Ozzy's other-worldly vocals, the band conjured a dark, menacing, and resonant sound that reverberates still.  Warner Bros./Rhino brings together the original quartet's groundbreaking eight-album run for Black Sabbath: The Complete Studio Albums (1970-1978)  Presented in a clamshell box, the set contains all of the studio albums Black Sabbath recorded for Warner Bros. Records during the 1970's, including its iconic, eponymous debut (1970), the multi-platinum landmark Paranoid (1970), the platinum albums Master Of Reality (1971), Vol. 4 (1972), and Sabbath Bloody Sabbath (1973), as well as the gold albums Sabotage (1975), Technical Ecstasy (1976), and Never Say Die! (1978).

Pat Metheny/Kin (<-->) ....CD $17.99

Pat Metheny/Kin (<-->) ....CD $17.99

Last year, for the first time since 1980, guitarist Pat Metheny recorded with a band that highlighted tenor saxophone. Unity Band, which went on to win Metheny his 20th Grammy Award, featured Chris Potter on sax and bass clarinet, longtime collaborator Antonio Sanchez on drums, and Ben Williams on bass. Now, Metheny has added another musician, multi-instrumentalist Giulio Carmassi, and christened the ensemble Pat Metheny Unity Group. The Group's first record, Kin (<-->), will be released by Nonesuch. The Pat Metheny Unity Group will tour to 44 cities throughout North America this winter, beginning February 3, then tour Europe from April through June.  Metheny says of this new Group, "The core quartet of Chris, Ben, Antonio, and me played more than 100 concerts over the year that followed the release of our Unity Band record. Over the course of that period, the band became one of those rare combinations of players where the whole is greater than the sum of its parts; it gelled in every way, and that just seemed to beg for expansion and further research." He continues, "Simultaneously, I had been itching to write using more of a lush and orchestrated kind of concept that went beyond the sonic limits of what a straight-ahead quartet might invoke. But I really didn't want to lose the energy, focus, and intensity of what this band had developed. I wanted to take it further. If the first Unity Band record was a thoughtful, black and white documentary of four musicians in a recording studio playing, this record is more like the Technicolor, IMAX version of what a band like this could be - but with that hardcore thing still sitting right in the middle of it all."

Asia/Gravitas [Deluxe Edition] ....CD + DVD $18.99

Asia's self-titled debut album exploded onto the worldwide music scene in April of 1982. Driven by the wildly popular single, "Heat Of The Moment," it became the best selling album of the year around the globe. Featuring John Wetton (bass, lead vocals), Steve Howe (guitar), Carl Palmer (drums), and Geoff Downes (keyboards), Asia was the logical successor to the members' collective bands of the '70s - Yes, ELP, King Crimson, UK and The Buggles.  32 years later, the legendary British rock band returns with a brand new studio album entitled "Gravitas." This album introduces new guitarist Sam Coulson who was recommended to the band by none other than Paul Gilbert of Mr. Big.  The new album, which is being hailed as Asia's best album since its classic early '80s releases, will be released as both a CD and as a collector's edition CD/DVD (featuring two bonus tracks and a DVD with a videoclip for first single "Valkyrie," behind the scenes footage and three Asia classics recorded live with a full symphonic orchestra in Plovdiv, Blugaria).

Mike Oldfield/Man on the Rocks ....double CD $20.99

Mike Oldfield/Man on the Rocks ....double CD $20.99

Virgin EMI are delighted to announce Mike Oldfield's first album of new material since 2008. Featuring 11 brand new tracks, Man on the Rocks is a deeply personal song-based album that reflects many of Mike's different influences. Recorded in the Bahamas, Mike's 25th studio album has been produced by Mike with legendary British producer Stephen Lipson.  Last seen performing at the personal request of Danny Boyle to a global audience of 900 million at the London 2012 Olympics Opening Ceremony, Man On The Rocks underlines Mike Oldfield's status as one of the most singular talents to ever emerge from the UK.  " It has been a pleasure making Man On The Rocks with such a dedicated team of performers," says Oldfield. "For a long period, I felt that I wasn't going to record any new music again. But, after the elation of the Olympics and the explorations of my catalogue, I felt the time was right to return with this, one of my favourite albums to date."  Man On The Rocks features players such as legendary bassist Leland Sklar (Phil Collins, Crosby, Stills & Nash, James Taylor) and drummer John Robinson (Michael Jackson, Eric Clapton, Daft Punk). Although Oldfield has worked with some of the world's most famous vocalists in the past, here he has found an incredible young talent to interpret his words, Luke Spiller from the Struts.  Its working title, 'Rock' emphasises the album's directness, heard especially on the guitar-driven 'Irene,' inspired by the category 3 hurricane that hit the Bahamas in 2011.   However, it is - as you would expect from the man who gave the world Tubular Bells and so much more besides - an album of great variance and contrast; from the commercial punch of opening track, 'Sailing,' to the beautiful folk-influenced 'Dreaming In The Wind' to the emotional gravitas of its closer, a cover of William McDowell's gospel song, 'I Give Myself Away.'

Ronnie Lane & Slim Chance/Ooh La La: An Island Harvest ....double CD $23.99

Ronnie Lane & Slim Chance/Ooh La La: An Island Harvest ....double CD $23.99

There was no one quite like Ronnie Lane - a talented songwriter and born entertainer, he would initially find fame as part of the Small Faces. He co-wrote many of their classic '60s songs and then with the Faces some of the biggest hits of the '70s. It was Ronnie Lane with Steve Marriot who would write the Faces legendary classic Ooh La La.  When Ronnie went solo it would be in Ronnie's way. The Passing Show is the stuff of musical legend, born from Ronnie's love of entertaining it was a travelling musical show performed in a Big Top with associated circus performers and financed by the money Ronnie earned from the Faces. However it wasn't a commercial success and Ronnie signed with Island Records.  The Island years would produce some of his most magical songs performed with his band Slim Chance.  'Ooh La La: An Island Harvest' looks at Ronnie and Slim Chance's time with Island Records where Ronnie released two albums - 'Ronnie Lane's Slim Chance' and 'One for The Road.'  This collection features highlights from those albums as well as covers of classic tracks delivered in the inimitable "Plonk" style. Tracks such as Tin and Tambourine, One For the Road and Burnin' Summer showcase Ronnie's beautiful melodies and imaginative lyrics.  It is easy to see why Lane was and still is admired by so many musicians. The collection also unearths some previously unreleased alternate takes of classic Ronnie compositions such as Ooh La La, The Poacher and Anniversary. Also included is the BBC concert Ronnie performed in 1974 which features Faces classics as well as a rip roaring version of How Come and a cover of Gallagher and Lyle's I Believe In You who were part of the original Slim Chance line up and incidentally perform alongside Ronnie at this concert.  Ooh La La is more than a collection - it is a celebration of an individual who embodied the spirit of a troubadour - beguiling melodies, haunting lyrics and performances filled with joy - this was Ronnie Lane.

Leon Russell/Life Journey ....CD $15.99

Leon Russell/Life Journey ....CD $15.99

"This is a record of my musical journey though this life. It reflects pieces of things that I have done and things I never did.  Nearing the close of my adventure, I feel that I may be the luckiest guy in the world." - Leon Russell, liner notes to Life Journey.  It seems like there's almost nothing Leon Russell hasn't done. The Tulsa-born pianist and songwriter came to prominence as a member of Phil Spector's legendary studio band and a session player who recorded with everyone from Frank Sinatra to the Rolling Stones. He was one of the highlights of George Harrison's historic "Concert for Bangladesh" and produced several songs for Bob Dylan. During the 1970s, his own albums - released on his own pioneering label, Shelter Records - made him one of the biggest concert draws in America, and he wrote two songs that would go on to become true modern standards: "Superstar" (co-written with Bonnie Bramlett) and "A Song For You."  Yet even for Leon Russell, the Life Journey album is an impressively wide-ranging tour of American music. The album's twelve selections range from compositions by such giants as Robert Johnson ("Come On In My Kitchen") and Duke Ellington ("I Got It Bad and That Ain't Good") to such incomparable standards as "Georgia on My Mind" and "That Lucky Old Sun" to more contemporary tunes like Billy Joel's "New York State of Mind," with a couple of Russell's own songs to cap it all off.  The making of Life Journey began when Russell ran into producer Tommy LiPuma at the Montreux Jazz Festival. "I first met Tommy fifty years ago," explains Russell. "He was one of the first guys I met when I went to LA when I was 17. He launched George Benson with one of my songs ("This Masquerade"), he worked with Diana Krall, he just finished with Paul McCartney - he's done a lot of amazing stuff, so I asked if he might want to work on this record. I was afraid he might have jazz damage, but he turned out to be quite a blues hound, an all-around musical guy."

Wilko Johnson & Roger Daltry/Going Back Home ....CD $15.99

Wilko Johnson & Roger Daltry/Going Back Home ....CD $15.99

The album features at total of 11 tracks, 10 of which are Wilko originals from both his Dr Feelgood days and solo years while one track is a cover version of Bob Dylan's Highway 61 Revisited classic "Can You Please Crawl out Your Window."  The album mostly features re-makes of vintage Wilko gems, including the Feelgoods' "All Through The City", "Keep It Out Of Sight" and "Going Back Home" - the latter co-written in 1975 with Johnny Kidd & The Pirates' guitarist Mick Green - plus "Everybody's Carrying A Gun," originally recorded by his post-Feelgoods group The Solid Senders, and the solo '80s rockers "Ice On The Motorway" and "I'm Going To Keep It To Myself." There is also a hidden gem, the heart-wrenching ballad Turned 21, which has never been properly released or performed live.

Ralph Towner & John Abercrombie/Five Years ....CD $17.99

Ralph Towner & John Abercrombie/Five Years ....CD $17.99

ECM Resolutions: These seven historical albums are mastered from original analog sources.  John Abercrombieacoustic and electric guitars, electric 12-string guitar, mandolin guitar; Ralph Towner12-string and classical guitars.  "Something special happens when they play together" observed Robert Palmer in the New York Times, and the participants concurred. "Playing with John is one of my favorite things to do," said Ralph Towner. "I can play as much as when playing solo, and still get to ply my skills as accompanist. John is such an amazing person to play with that, even when he's playing intensely or aggressively, we somehow fit together and there's really no way that we could collide." On Five Years Later, follow-up to their debut duo disc Sargasso Sea, their improvisations draw on a wider sonic palette, to telling effect.

Keith Jarrett/Arbour Zena ....CD $17.99

Keith Jarrett/Arbour Zena ....CD $17.99

Arbour Zena is another of the ECM Resolutions seven historical albums, mastered from original analog sources.  "I consider this one of my most richly lyrical and consistently inspired works," wrote Keith Jarrett of "Mirrors," the almost half-hour long concluding piece on Arbour Zena. "Jan Garbarek's contribution is irreplaceable and ecstatic." It is easy to agree that Arbour Zena as a whole is one of Jarrett's most exceptional albums. Evocative writing for strings, beautiful playing by Keith and Jan and by Charlie Haden at his most soulful, and a glowing panoramic production make this 1975 recording one of the finest of the early ECMs.

Keith Jarrett & Russell Davies/Ritual ....CD $17.99

Keith Jarrett & Russell Davies/Ritual ....CD $17.99

ECM Resolutions - Keith Jarrett and conductor-pianist Dennis Russell Davies have been friends and musical comrades for forty years. In the mid '70s the St Paul Chamber Orchestra, under Davies' direction presented Jarrett's chamber music. In the '90s Jarrett recorded the Mozart piano concertos with Davies and the Stuttgarter Kammerorchester.   Near the beginning of their association, Jarrett invited Davies to play a composition he had written for solo piano. To listen to Ritual is akin to experiencing the core of a Jarrett solo concert. The interpreter may be different, but the lyrical expression is remarkably consistent. As Dennis Russell Davies says: "Those who know Keith will hear him in this music. It couldn't have been written by anyone else."

Miroslav Vitous Group/Miroslav Vitous Group ....CD $17.99

Miroslav Vitous Group/Miroslav Vitous Group ....CD $17.99

ECM Resolutions:  This is one of seven historical albums, mastered from original analog sources.  Between 1979 and 1982, the Miroslav Vitous Group was the primary outlet for the abundant improvisational skills of leader Vitous and John Surman. They made three ECM albums: this eponymously-titled disc from 1980 is the middle one. Vitous and Surman were well-matched in lots of ways, with roots and influences that extended beyond jazz, a love of playing freely, a commitment to using all the sound potential of their respective instruments: Surman singing at the top of the baritone sax's range to match Miroslav's fiddle-like arco flourishes on the double bass. The redoubtable Jon Christensen shared their passion for playing, as did Kenny Kirkland, just 24 at the time of this session, on his way to becoming one of modern jazz's outstanding pianists. Repertoire includes classic Miroslav pieces ("When Face Gets Pale"), collective improvising, and an early sighting of Surman's relentlessly driving Number Six.

Gary Burton/Seven Songs for Quartet & Chamber Orchestra ....CD $17.99

Gary Burton/Seven Songs for Quartet & Chamber Orchestra ....CD $17.99

This is one of ECM Resolutions seven historical albums, mastered from original analog sources. Follow the great arc of music on these early ECM productions, with works for orchestra and improvisers, guitar duo, solo piano, and jazz quartet.  Sounding as fresh today as it did in 1973, Seven Songs places the Gary Burton Quartet in an orchestral context, with compositions of Michael Gibbs - inspired by Messiaen and Charles Ives as well as Miles and Gil Evans - and exceptional soloing by Mick Goodrick, Steve Swallow and Burton himself.  The production is exemplary: Seven Songs set a new standard for recordings of orchestral jazz.

Abdullah Ibrahim/African Piano ....CD $17.99

Abdullah Ibrahim/African Piano ....CD $17.99

Continuing ECM Resolutions collection of seven historical albums, sometimes a musical message is so urgent that questions of recording quality are almost beside the point. Informally recorded in 1969 in a noisy club - Copenhagen's famous Jazzhus Montmartre - the flavour of this album is 'documentary' rather than luxuriantly hi-fidelity, yet the essence of Abdullah Ibrahim's communication comes through loud and clear. The listener is drawn into the robust rhythms of his solo piano style, as he re-examines the history of jazz from a South African perspective, with echoes of songs of the townships, and vamps that hint of Monk and Duke and much more. African Piano was a highly influential album, and it has lost none of its power.

Sam Rivers/Contrasts ....CD $17.99

Sam Rivers/Contrasts ....CD $17.99

ECM Resolutions: This is one of seven historical albums, mastered from original analog sources.  Dave Holland always described Sam Rivers' groups as his finishing school. It was Sam who instructed him to play "all the music" - inside, outside, atonal, swing, blues, and all the hues of the jazz and chamber music traditions. By the time of Contrasts, Rivers and Holland had been working together consistently for seven years (with Dave's Conference of the Birds at the start of the story), a powerhouse combination of multi-reeds and double bass. Of the drummers who passed through the line-up, Thurman Barker was one of the most creative, rippling across drum kit and marimba. Young trombone innovator George Lewis had already worked with Holland and Barker in Anthony Braxton groups. For Contrasts everyone was fired up and ready to play.

Paul McCartney/Off the Ground ....CD $12.99

Paul McCartney/Off the Ground ....CD $12.99

A special re-issue of the ninth solo studio album by the legendary Sir Paul McCartney, originally released in 1993. As his first studio album of the 1990s, it is also the follow-up to his acclaimed 1989 endeavor, Flowers in the Dirt.  Sir Paul decided to record the album "live in the studio," meaning that the band would rehearse an entire song then record it in one take, instead of recording each vocal track and instrumental track separately. This approach gave a new, raw and direct feel to the work.   His increased interest in social issues came to prominence on this album, with the anti-animal cruelty rocker "Looking for Changes," or paeans for a better world ("Hope of Deliverance & "C'mon People").  This is an important album in the McCartney catalog of music, and is a pivotal addition to all McCartney music collections, and rock music collections in general.

Paul Rodgers/The Royal Sessions ....CD $15.99

Paul Rodgers, longtime singer, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist with Bad Company, has partnered with 429 Records and is gearing up for the release of "The Royal Sessions" - a lovingly crafted collection of classic R&B and soul songs re-imagined by the iconic rock singer recorded at Memphis' Royal Studios, historic home of Willie Mitchell and Hi Records, with many of the musicians who played on the original tracks.  Truly a lifetime in the making, Rodgers has come full circle with "The Royal Sessions" as he pays homage to the legendary hits he collected on 45s released on Stax/Volt, Goldwax and Hi Records - recordings by Otis Redding, Albert King and Ann Peebles which made such an indelible impression on the young Rodgers inspiring him to pursue a career as a singer.

Andersen Smith & Vinaccia/Mira ....CD $17.99

Andersen Smith & Vinaccia/Mira ....CD $17.99

Tommy Smith tenor saxophone, shakuhachi; Arild Andersen double bass, electronics; Paolo Vinaccia drums.  After the eruptive excitement of their Live at Belleville album, which was widely praised around the world (and secured for leader Arild Andersen the Prix du Musicien Europeen 2008 from the Academie du Jazz in France), the trio now delivers a studio album. In Oslo's Rainbow, bassist Andersen, tenorist Tommy Smith and drummer Paolo Vinaccia rechanneled their music's energies into a program of soulful ballads and mid-tempo free-floating sound explorations. The pairing of Anderson's muscular bass and Smith's vaulting tenor is exceptionally compelling (as the recent Celebration album also confirmed). Most of the tunes on Mira are from Arild's pen, though his cohorts also contribute material, and there is an unexpected interpretation of Burt Bacharach's "Alfie," beautifully played by Tommy Smith here.

Les Claypool's Duo de Twang/Four Foot Shack ....CD $14.99

Les Claypool's Duo de Twang/Four Foot Shack ....CD $14.99

How "deconstructed" can a group get? How about just one vocal, one bass, one guitar, and a basic beat supplied by stomping on a mini-tambourinedoohickey?  That's exactly what everyone's favorite storyteller/narrator, Les Claypool, is incorporating in his new band, Duo de Twang. While Les is still pulling double duty with the Primus lads, he has also found the time to unite with his old buddy, Bryan Kehoe. But unlike Primus, DDT focuses more on the Americana/rootsy side of things - as heard throughout the band's debut recording, 'Four Foot Shack.'  "I was asked a year before last to put together a project for the Hardly Strictly Bluegrass Festival in San Francisco," recalls Les about DDT's formation. "So I thought, 'I'll do a little duo thing." Upon hearing 'Four Foot Shack,' you'll quickly discover that Les and Bryan made it a point to keep things as live sounding as humanly possible. "It was very live," admits Les. "In fact, it was a little difficult, with all the bleed of the stomping and the bass and the vocals.  The Twang project is me exploring a lot of stuff that I personally listen to; Johnny Horton, Vernon Dalhart, Jerry Reed, Bob Wills, Eddy Cochran stuff like that - it's another door for me to open. I'm doing this sort of Luther Perkins, Johnny Cash guitar-ish type part on my bass, by doing the old ding-dinka-ding, dinka-ding-dinka-ding on a lot of the stuff. It took me a little bit to get that. Now that I've gotten it, I can pull songs out of the air and it's surprising how many songs easily succumb to the twang, and can be complimented by the twang. When all is said and done, it's just a hell of a fun project for me right now. I'll do it 'til it's not fun anymore." From the sounds of their debut recording and shows, Les and Bryan are having a grand old time BS'ing, drinking, twanging, and laughing.

Iain Matthews/The Art of Obscurity ....CD $15.99

Iain Matthews/The Art of Obscurity ....CD $15.99

"The realization that The Art of Obscurity is my 25th solo album, prompted me to do some deep thinking about where I am, where I'm going and what I still want to achieve from this life in music.  In my heart I feel vital and passionate about the creative process and that my best work is the next one I finish. It doesn't necessarily work out that clean, but for me, it can be the only touchstone."  - Iain Matthews.   While probably best remembered in the United States for his 1978 smash "Shake It" (#13 Billboard Pop Singles), Iain Matthews has been a worldwide music icon for over 45 years. Whether as a founding member of Fairport Convention, Matthews Southern Comfort (who hit #23 with their cover of Joni Mitchell's "Woodstock" in 1971), Plainsong or as a solo artist, Matthews has taken listeners on a journey with each recording.  Welcome to The Art of Obscurity, Iain Matthews' first new release in his staggering fifth decade of recording and performing music, and his first American album in 15 years. Recorded in his adopted home of Austin, Texas with producer Bradley Kopp (Jimmie Dale Gilmore, Joe Ely, and Tish Hinajosa), this 12 track release highlights Matthews' knack for acoustic folk with jazzy undertones - capped off by his rich singing voice and reflective and insightful lyrics.

Benmont Tench/You Should Be So Lucky ....CD $15.99

Benmont Tench/You Should Be So Lucky ....CD $15.99

Produced by legendary producer Glyn Johns, You Should Be So Lucky was recorded to tape at Sunset Sound in Los Angeles and features Tench handling lead vocals, piano and organs, joined by a team of collaborators including a core band of Don Was, Ethan Johns, Blake Mills and Jeremy Stacey with contributions by Ryan Adams, Gillian Welch & David Rawlings, Tom Petty and Ringo Starr. The album is a dynamic and distinguished set of songs written almost entirely by Tench over the course of his thirty-seven year career not only as a keyboardist and founding member of Tom Petty and The Heartbreakers, but as a first call musician for artists from Johnny Cash and Bob Dylan to The Rolling Stones and Elvis Costello; from the Jayhawks and Ryan Adams to Fiona Apple and John Prine. The only non-originals are covers of the traditional Corrina Corrina; and the Bob Dylan track Duquesne Whistle from 2012's Tempest.  Tench had always intended on making his own album, but the project gained momentum when Glyn Johns heard Tench's demos and encouraged him to begin recording. Says Tench about Johns: "Glyn is one of the greatest producers and engineers in the story of rock & roll. Hell, he was present at the creation. He has excellent taste, and he brooks no nonsense. He tells you exactly what he thinks, and he backs it up. I love him to death."  With Johns on board to produce, Tench was thrilled when many of the musicians he most admires, many of which also happened to be friends, jumped at the chance to participate in the sessions.

Ian Anderson/Homo Erraticus ....import CD $14.99

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 dramatised 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.  A wonderfully ambitious fusion of folk, rock and metal stylings. Or, put another way, prog.  The regular edition comes packaged in a standard gem case. The special limited edition which includes a bonus DVD comes packaged in a media book including a 5.1 surround mix of the album and the video "Creations - The Making of Homo Erraticus" on DVD and a 32-page booklet and an exclusive postcard.

Synth supergroup Node return with their first new release since 1995! "Node 2" features three of the original members, maverick producer and sonic legend Flood, renowned producer and composer Ed Buller and classically trained Doctor of music Dave Bessell. The band are joined by new member, Hollywood composer Mel Wesson, who has most recently provided the soundscapes for Hans Zimmer's run of blockbuster films. This extraordinary collective take time out from their high flying day jobs to indulge their secret passion for all things analogue. The result, "Node 2," is the culmination of two recording sessions that took place over the last year and a half at Battery studios in London.  Featuring what is quite possibly the largest collection of vintage analogue equipment that has been assembled in a studio in recent times, this quartet drag their favoured analogue tools, crackling and bleeping into the 21st century. Staying true to their roots the band improvised everything live and recorded straight to two track. The final result is edited down from the mass of material that was recorded but is otherwise presented as it was played, without the computer tidying up or overdubbing that has become part and parcel of most contemporary recordings.

The resulting nine tracks range from the classic Berlin sequencing of Shinkansen East and West to the moody introspection of Dark Beneath the Earth. Along the way we are served up such unclassifiable treats as March MA©chanique, which mixes martial rhythms with Arabic flavours and subtle sequencing, or the extraordinary No Signal which pushes sonic boundaries, mixing custom written physical modelling software with analogue microtones.   Don't miss this increasingly rare chance to hear what these legendary machines can do in the hands of experts. Presented with an extensive accompanying booklet that contains fascinating insights into the recording sessions and working methods "Node 2" is another must have release on the DiN label.

Ed Palermo Big Band/Oh No! Not Jazz!! ....double CD $22.99

The Ed Palermo Big Band is led by alto saxist and arranger Ed Palermo; he has had this big band with much of the same personnel for over 30 years, which is an impressive feat in itself, and has had his band performing the music of Frank Zappa for 20 years.  There are a number of ensembles performing the music of Frank Zappa, who is now recognized as one of the great 20th century American composers.  But no one does it with this ease, skill and originality!  The band is an 18 piece ensemble of five woodwind players, four trumpeters, three trombonists, two keyboardists, guitar, violin, bass and drum. All of these musicians are NYC professionals, and they have been playing this music for years with Ed, because, like Ed, they recognize and appreciate the genius inherent in the huge body of Zappa's work, and they want to keep this great music alive and in front of the public.  Oh No! Not Jazz!! consists of two discs: The first disc further explores Ed's distinctive, big band interpretations of the music of Frank Zappa, while the second disc features Ed's own, colorful compositions.  "Palermo developed these charts during years of live shows with these musicians, and their mastery of the material shows in the performances, which turn on a dime yet feel fierce with spontaneous invention. Palermo's arrangements and these performances are precise, dedicated, raucous and incisive - just like Zappa himself." - JazzTimes

Present/Triskaidekaphobie (Remastered/Expanded) ....CD $15.99

Present was founded in 1979 by guitarist/composer Roger Trigaux, who first came to attention as the co-leader of Univers Zero, which he co-founded in 1974.  After two now legendary albums with Univers Zero (Univers Zero - 1977 and Heresie - 1979), he left to have the chance to create his own, personal, musical vision. A quartet of guitar, piano, bass and drums, Present featured the stupendous drumming of Daniel Denis, the other co-founder of Univers Zero, so Present's sound is a more rock-oriented encapsulation of the unique music Roger had been composing, performing and honing for years.   Originally released in 1980, Triskaidekaphobie (the fear of the number 13), the band's first album, was an instant classic of complex, Rock In Opposition-style electric chamber rock. It is presented here in a newly remastered edition and featuring a 16 page booklet of the story of the band and this album, as well as many never-before seen photos, as well as 20' of never-released bonus material!

Fleetwood Mac/Boston ....import triple CD $26.99

Fleetwood Mac/Boston ....import triple CD $26.99

Boston is a 3CD set which collects live recordings from an earlier era of the band's colourful history.  The set features the classic blues line-up of Mick Fleetwood, Peter Green, Danny Kirwan, John McVie and Jeremy Spencer.  Originally recorded at the Boston Tea Party venue over three nights in February 1970, for a planned release later the same year, these recordings were left in the can, unissued, following leader Peter Green's sudden decision to leave the band a few weeks after the dates. Tracks from the shows were eventually released in various forms in the mid '80s but these releases were blighted by poor sound sources. The discovery in the late '90s of the original 8-track tapes and a number of previously unreleased tracks allowed the material to be re-mixed, re-mastered, and substantially overhauled for release on 3 separate CD volumes.  This new set brings together all of these re-mastered recordings in a 3CD set to present a complete document of these historic shows. The booklet contains new sleevenotes and reworked artwork.

Lightnin' Hopkins/Free Form Patterns ....import triple CD $22.99

Lightnin' Hopkins/Free Form Patterns ....import triple CD $22.99

Recorded in January 1968 it stands out in Lightnin' discography due to unusual line-up on the sessions, with the veteran bluesman fuelled by homemade moonshine supported by a young hippy rhythm section, comprising Danny Thomas and Duke Davis from the Thirteenth Floor Elevators, both high on acid at the time.  This, however, is no failed hippy/blues amalgam, just a straightforward honest blues album with the great man backed by fans, who happened to be members of a psychedelic band. Its significance lies in how the music cut across the generation and racial boundaries within the segregated and repressive atmosphere of late 1960s Texas.  3CD digibook edition of the Texax blues legend Sam Lightnin' Hopkins' only album for the International Artists label in Houston - 2 bonus discs featuring previously unheard and unreleased songs, studio chatter and a candid conversations with Lightnin'.

Ozric Tentacles/Vitamin Enhanced ....import 6 CD Box Set $49.99

Ozric Tentacles/Vitamin Enhanced ....import 6 CD Box Set $49.99

Vitamin Enhanced boxset reissued - 6CD set fully re-mastered.  A raggle-taggle, unpretentious assortment of punk-infused, dreadlocked hippies, the Ozric Tentacles wove psychedelic audio-tapestries that captured the almost dangerous musical diversity of the free festival scene, blending acid rock with dub, reggae, ethnic world music and electronic, jazzy experimentation.  This was the soundtrack to the herb fragranced, alternative lifestyle that wound its way around country lanes looking for a place to set up and party, away from the psychoses of corporate life.  Fittingly, the band was formed at the Stonehenge Festival in 1983. Ed and Roly Wynne, Nick Van Gelder (Tig) and Gavin Griffiths (at that point known as the Bolshem People) were joined for a jam by Joie 'Ozroonuiculator' Hinton - a synth wizard who had just returned from India loaded with ethnic sound recordings that he had collected.  At some point, having attracted an audience, someone asked what the name of the new ensemble was and Ed responded 'Ozric Tentacles' mainly because he couldn't think of anything else. The name stuck and a mainstay of the UK festival scene for the next 30 years was born.

Without any desire or need for a record label, it was the Ozric Tentacles' cassette releases that funded and supported their journey through the '80s. These simple artefacts with photo copied inserts and rainbow, spray painted labels were sold in vast quantities at festivals, on the merchandise table at Club Dog and through a mail order outlet called Better Days Tape distribution.  So treasured were the bands six cassette albums that in '94, just after the Ozrics hit the big time, the albums were re-mastered and packaged together in a six CD box set called Vitamin Enhanced which was sold in a limited edition of 5000 copies on the band's Dovetail Records label. Legend has it that the box set had been withdrawn due to complaints about the similarity of the packaging design to that found on Kellogg's Cornflakes boxes. Kellogg's were supposedly concerned about consumers confusing their musical tastes with their breakfast cereal requirements, although it remains uncertain if anyone requested a packet of Ozric Tentacles at the local supermarket.  Thirty years after that initial jam, the band are still going strong, having survived a string of personal tragedies, line-up changes, not to mention the ever changing vagaries of the music industry. Now, to mark this anniversary, Vitamin Enhanced is to be reissued, bringing confusion to breakfast buyers once more. All six of the albums have been carefully re-mastered, ensuring that they have never sounded better.  The band are also emabarking on an extensive 30th anniversary tour.

Los Lobos/Kiko ....Hybrid SACD $28.99

Los Lobos/Kiko ....Hybrid SACD $28.99

Los Lobos Kiko on numbered limited edition hybrid SACD from Mobile Fidelity.  Only a few years removed from breaking through with their cover of Ritchie Valens' "La Bamba," Los Lobos turned even more heads with Kiko, a beautifully textured and flawlessly executed musical statement that reveals the group taking on ambitious musical challenges and surmounting every one. In pairing with producer Mitchell Froom, the band yielded this critically acclaimed 1992 set that remains the apex of its distinguished career.  Mastered from original master tapes, Mobile Fidelity's hybrid SACD version of Kiko presents the record in previously unimaginable fidelity. In particular, Froom's exquisite production can now be experienced in full relief, with the vintage tape-loop keyboards and spare arrangements yielding an ethereal feel, otherworldly ambience, and colorful finish that complement the ace playing. The subtleties of the richly detailed backdrops - splashed with distortion, feedback, random sound effects, sonorous horns, ominous chants, delicately plucked harps - are greatly enhanced, turning the multifaceted Kiko into the aural equivalent of a sensational IMAX presentation.  The material, too, ravishes the senses. In Rolling Stone's original review of Kiko, David Okamoto remarks "the music sounds more created than contrived, thanks to the compassionate touch of the group's main songwriters, singer-guitarist David Hidalgo and drummer Louis Perez." Indeed, the Los Angeles ensemble tackles tough-minded social issues such as alcoholism, suicide, abuse, homelessness, death, and rape without coming across as preachy or melodramatic. The record's power relates to that possessed by the most timeless albums - the emotional and metaphysical capacities to transcend problems, overcome adversity, and deliver catharsis.  And still, it remains impossible to ignore the use of the studio as the record's secret-weapon instrument.  Imaginative tricks such as noise gates, filters, and psychedelic devices help establish a surrealism that never lets up. Neither does Kiko.

Ray Charles/The Genius After Hours ....Hybrid SACD $29.99

Ray Charles/The Genius After Hours ....Hybrid SACD $29.99

Ray Charles The Genius After hours on numbered limited edition SACD from Mobile Fidelity.  There's no doubting Ray Charles became a legend only after moving to Atlantic Records where, in the mid and late 1950s, he rung up a string of hits that redefined popular music and gave birth to R&B. Yet the label refused to shoehorn Charles into strictly sticking with vocal fare. Recognizing his jazz and blues roots, Atlantic both permitted and encouraged him to record instrumental sides with jazz combos and pursue piano-based material with which he was originally associated.  Mastered from the original master tapes, and restored to a quality that hasn't been realized since the initial pressings more than 50 years ago, Mobile Fidelity's hybrid SACD version of The Genius After Hours takes its place as one of the most unsurpassed-sounding examples of Charles' first love affair: jazz and blues. Opening up the veil onto these early 1960s sessions, the collector's disc functions as a tableside-seat at a smoky jazz club where, for sheer fun and amusement, Charles gathers with a handful of cohorts and lets loose with hard-bop standards and swinging rhythms.  The cavity of Charles' instrument, acoustic signatures of the stand-up bass lines, and swish of the percussion are all presented with unfettered realism.  Taken from the same three studio gatherings that yielded The Great Ray Charles, the eight tunes here feature the icon pairing with both a trio and a septet. Longtime collaborator David "Fathead" Newman plays tenor and alto sax, while trumpeter Joseph Bridgewater and bassist Oscar Pettiford also contribute memorable performances. Hall of Fame producer Quincy Jones handles the arrangements on the bigger-band tracks. Yet the star of the program remains Charles, and the carefree, charming manner in which he causes the music to move in any direction he wills.

Aretha Franklin/Aretha's Gold ....Hybrid SACD $28.99

Aretha Franklin/Aretha's Gold ....Hybrid SACD $28.99

Aretha Franklin Aretha's Gold on numbered limited edition Hybrid SACD from Mobile Fidelity.  Aretha Franklin made her Hall of Fame reputation at Atlantic Records between 1967 & 1968. This astonishing two-year period witnessed the singer score nine Top 10 hits and defines soul music.  Pairing with producer Jerry Wexler and a flawless Muscle Shoals studio band, Franklin unleashed bolder sides of her artistry kept under wraps during her tenure at Columbia. The rest is history - a history that, until now, has never been in heard in true audiophile sound. And if there's any voice you want to experience to the most realistic extent, it's that of the vocalist Rolling Stone crowned the Greatest Singer of All Time.  Mastered from the original master tapes, Mobile Fidelity's hybrid SACD of Aretha's Gold presents Franklin's most seminal early Atlantic songs with reference-standard sonics. Finally, hear the full range of the Queen of Soul's depth, reach, and expressiveness. Complementing her timeless classics with tremendous dynamics, restored balances, and stunning clarity, this collectable SACD sheds new light on Franklin's power and technique, honesty and confidence, enunciation and directness.  Hear why Franklin is even better than you likely think or remember. You just haven't been able to hear the Detroit native on a format that mirrors exactly what went down in the studios when she recorded songs that, to this day, remain the bar by which all other singers are measured. On this edition of Aretha's Gold, experience every picked guitar note, brushed snare, and fluid bass line. Seldom has a band and vocalist ever made a more formidable, memorable, and emotional combination.  You know the songs by heart. You know the voice by memory. But you've never quite known them so intimately. Aretha's Gold on Mobile Fidelity gives the Queen the royal treatment she deserves.

Axel Rudi Pell/Into the Storm ....CD $14.99

There aren't many artists around whose career has already lasted a quarter of a century. But then, there are even fewer who have experienced no setbacks whatsoever in 25 years. And there are only a few guitarists in the world of rock music who have created their own brand just with their name, causing over 1.5 million people to buy their music. Axel Rudi Pell is one of those rare exceptions.  And so it doesn't come as a surprise that his latest offering "Into The Storm" is also one of his best; after all, anniversaries are always special.  Although this is the fifteenth studio album (featuring his own material) in Pell's career to date, he didn't approach it any different than its predecessors. "There hasn't been one day in my life when I haven't been pushed by Ronnie James Dio's spirit to write something mystical," the 53-year-old explains his motivation.  Despite the fact that the omens weren't so good: in July of 2013 he unfortunately had to part ways with drummer Mike Terrana because their schedules didn't match. After 15 years together, this wasn't an easy step for either of them. So what to do? As Bobby Rondinelli (Rainbow, Black Sabbath, Blue Öyster Cult etc.) has always been one of his favorite drummers, he was on the top of Pell's list. And now Rondinelli has joined the band, as simple as that. No miracle, but the result of Axel's excellent reputation within the hard rock and metal community.

Percy Jones/Cape Catastrophe ....import CD $17.99

Brand X was another one of those bands who were beloved of other musicians, and the more discerning of critics, but which despite everything never had the commercial success that it deserved.  Jones' utterly idiosyncratic bass playing defined the sound of Brand X as much as Phil Collins' drumming, and the band would not have been anywhere near as interesting without him. He also appeared on classic Brian Eno LPs such as Another Green World and Before and After Science.  He recorded Cape Catastrophe in 1988 and 1989 at a studio in East Harlem. Using an array of the era's available hardware (including a Casio synthesizer, Roland sequencer, Yamaha drum machine, and Korg digital delay), Jones laid down tracks ranging from two-and-a-half minutes to over 23 minutes in length, and then accompanied the tracks live on his five-string (Wal V, for those interested in brands) bass as the direct-to-digital recording was made. The results were generally quite impressive, and stand the test of time well over a decade later.  Jones composed everything on the album himself, except for the closing number which - of all things - turns out to be an arrangement of Thomas Arne's Symphony in F major, tinged with a bit of the feeling of Krautrock experimentation.

Percy Jones/Tunnels ....import CD $17.99

In the early 90's, Swiss born musician Marc Wagnon sought to create his own music project. He enlisted the help of bassist Percy Jones of Brand X fame and created a jazz fusion band dubbed Tunnels.  In 1994 they released their first album simply named 'Tunnels.' With Wagnon, himself a Berkley College of Music graduate, playing vibraphone and Percy Jones on fretless bass, Frank Katz, also of Brand X, was picked up to provide percussion duties.  Throughout their career, Tunnels has worked with a variety of musicians to add diversity to their three piece format. At one time guitarists Van Manakas, Julien Feltin, and John Goodsall have either guested on Tunnels' albums or played with them live. Percussionist Lance Carter guested on their self titled album, and took on full drumming duties on their album 'The Art Of Living Dangerously.'  The trio creates a strikingly unique jazz fusion sound largely thanks to Marc Wagnon's rather unique instrument and choice of synth sounds. Rhythmically the band resembles Brand X. Not surprising considering at one point 2/3 of the band was previous members of Brand X.

Brand X/Is There Anything About? ....import CD $17.99

Brand X was another one of those bands who were beloved of other musicians, and the more discerning of critics, but which despite everything never had the commercial success that it deserved.  They were a jazz fusion band active 1975-1980. Noted members included Phil Collins (drums), Percy Jones (bass), John Goodsall (guitar) and Robin Lumley (keyboards). Not long after jazz/rock fusion greats Brand X put out their 1980 album, 'Do They Hurt?,' the band members went their separate ways.  However, they still owed their record label one more album.  The solution? Release a rarities album! The problem, though, was that Brand X hardly had any unreleased material in the vaults at all---about three or four tracks at the most. But with a little doctoring & remixing of tapes, keyboardist Robin Lumley extended that number to six tracks (still scant, but better than four), and released Brand X's appropriately-titled collection, 'Is There Anything About?' in 1982.

Pierre Moerlen's Gong/Live at the Bataclan Paris ....import CD $17.99

Many people believed that the idea of Gong without Daevid was like the Rolling Stones without Keith Richards. However, they had already played a stint as Paragong in 1973 while Daevid Allen and Gilli Smyth took a 6 week break so they regrouped as Gong with guitarist Steve Hillage at the helm. The band recorded a new album, but Hillage left before its release. Gilli Smyth and Tim Blake had left at around the same time as Daevid, so the rump of Gong now featuring Didier Malherbe aka Bloomdido Bad de Grasse, Mike Howlett on bass and noted French percussionist Piere Moerlen. There has been some confusion about the exact order of events, as various internet sources contradict each other, but bass player Mike Howlett confirms: "Pierre was already in the group and had played on the same albums as I did, "Angel's Egg" and "You," which are also known as the "classic" Gong line up. Pierre was also in the band and played on and wrote a couple of songs for "Shamal" where most of the material on your release was first recorded. The band known as Pierre Moerlen's Gong only existed after Didier left, I think it was 1978, but I had already left after touring the "Shamal" album, which is where your recording comes from."  Tracks: Cat in Clark's Shoes, Wingfull of Eyes, Bambooji, Isle of Everywhere, Drum Solo, Get It Inner.

Audio CD with bonus DVD of the show.  Rick Wakeman is one of those artists who really needs no introduction, but just in case you have spent the past four decades with your head in a bucket, or ensconced on a desert island somewhere... Wakeman began his solo career during his first run with Yes. His perhaps most known records being his first three, The Six Wives of Henry VIII, Journey to the Centre of the Earth and The Myths and Legends of King Arthur and the Knights of the Round Table. He has produced over 100 solo albums that have sold more than 50 million copies. In November 2010, Wakeman was awarded the Spirit of Prog award at the annual Marshall Classic Rock Roll of Honour Awards, and in 2012 was crowned as a 'Prog God' at the Prog Rock awards."  This album was recorded at Farnham Maltings in 1976; a year when Rick was just about to take a break from his solo career and rejoin Yes for the triumphant album that was Going for the One.

Mick Abrahams & The This Was Band/This Is! ....import CD $17.99

When Jethro Tull signed to the legendary Island Records, home of the cream of what was then known as 'the underground,' and during the summer of 1968 recorded their first album This Was. Ian Anderson, the aforementioned gentleman of the rock and roll road, described their music as 'a sort of progressive blues with a bit of jazz.'  The blues influence came largely from guitarist Mick Abrahams. It was Abrahams who - on the first album - provided the only non-Anderson lead vocal in Jethro Tull's recorded history, and with the benefit of hindsight it is easy to see that both he and Anderson were jostling for position as the prime creative mover behind the band.  Unsurprisingly, there was a massive falling out between the pair, and Abrahams left the group.  But what of Abrahams? One of the main reasons that he had fallen out with Anderson was that he was a blues purist, he just wanted to play the blues. There was a purity and an integrity to the blues, and it was the path along which Mick Abrahams intended to walk. So he started his own band and for reasons which remain obscure he named it Blodwyn Pig.  Mick Abrahams and chums toured in 1998 playing the entire Jethro Tull debut album This Was, authentically recreating the live sound of Jethro Tull, 1968 style. This superbly recorded CD is a great reminder of the tour if you caught it, or a scintillating taste of what you missed!

Gary Windo was one of those people who never achieved the full recognition due to him. At least, not while he was alive. A highly original musician with an instantly recognizable style, Windo was involved in the seventies with various musicians of the Canterbury scene. Most notable was his work with Robert Wyatt on the albums Rock Bottom (1974) and Ruth Is Stranger Than Richard (1975), and with Hugh Hopper on 1984 (1973) and Hoppertunity Box (1976).  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), an unsung classic.  In 1976 and 1977 Gary recorded the Steam Radio Tapes album at Pink Floyd's Britannia Row studios with none other than Nick Mason serving as producer and drummer (for selected tracks). Mason remembers: "Brit Row had just been completed and we were able to do the recordings as a test sessions to check out all the systems."

Cyrille Verdeaux, native of France, was born July 31, 1949 in Paris. In 1963 at the age of 14, he entered the prestigious French National Conservatory of Music in Paris studying composition, harmony, and piano. From 1966 to 1968 he won first place in student composition three successive times. During the student uprisings of 1968 he was dismissed from the Conservatory for his revolutionary activities. He then attended the Nice Conservatory earning a Masters diploma, returning to Paris to form the band Babylone with guitarist Christian Boule.  In 1975 Virgin Records released the first album of Cyrille Verdeaux compositions titled Clearlight Symphony. Clearlight became the first French progressive rock band signed to a major British record label.

Two years after their ambitious 'A Dying Man's Hymn,' Dutch prog rockers Sky Architect are now back with 'A Billion Years of Solitude.'  Prepare for a launch into space. Prepare for wormholes. Prepare for planet eaters, supernovae, and lots of unexpected twists and turns.  This time heavily inspired by the vintage science fiction classics, Sky Architect boldly venture into new territories, once again proving themselves to be pioneers within the genre.  On 'A Billion Years of Solitude,' Sky Architect sound heavier, are more daring and inventive, and have challenged themselves more than ever before. In every step in the process, including the cover artwork, the band have taken full creative control.  The result: a stunning outburst of creativity, featuring typical Sky Architect elements such as surprising changes, crazy rhythmic devices, polyphonic arrangements and extensive song structures.  Fans of Gentle Giant, The Flower Kings, Beardfish and Pain Of Salvation take note.

Quicksilver Messenger Service gained wide popularity in the Bay Area and, through their recordings, with psychedelic rock enthusiasts around the globe and several of their albums ranked in the Top 30 of the Billboard Pop charts.  By 1970 the band were working and recording largely in Hawaii. The next two albums, Just for Love and What About Me?, are sometimes called the Hawaiian albums because they were recorded mostly in a studio in that state, and both have a similar Hawaiian motif to their cover designs. This excellent live album captures a changing band at the peak of their game. A real treat for psychedelic music fans.

Joey Molland/Return to Memphis ....import CD $17.99

Poor Badfinger; if ever there was a pop group "born under a bad sign" it was them.  Things started off quite auspiciously. As The Iveys they signed to The Beatles' Apple Records and had a hit single. However, they decided that their name and their image were a little old fashioned and for reasons that remain obscure they switched guitarists. Exit Ron Griffiths and enter Joey Molland.  Badfinger was born. They had hit singles with the Paul McCartney penned Come and Get It (recorded just as Griffiths was leaving the band) and No Matter What, and perhaps their greatest moment was when Harry Nilsson had a massive worldwide hit with their song Without You in 1972. After that it was all downhill.  The band was the last non-Beatles artists to release an album on Apple, and a move to Warner Brothers was not a success. Originally from Liverpool, Molland now lives in America, where he continues to write and perform some beautiful music. Let's hope, with arrival of this fantastic record that is star is finally in the ascendant.

Round about the time of his 70th birthday, Paul Kantner, founder member of Jefferson Airplane, started a new project. The Marin Independent Journal reported: "Apparently, getting old is not on his agenda. At the moment, he's excited about the Windowpane Collective, a recording group that includes Novato's David Freiberg, who was in Quicksilver and the Starship; West Coast folkie Jack Traylor, an early idol of Kantner's, and the two women who replaced Slick in the Starship, Darby Gould and Cathy Richardson.   At an age where most men have adjusted to a lifestyle of pipe and slippers and taking the dog for a walk at Closing Time, Paul Kantner is still experimenting, and still breaking new ground.

This recording of Brand X captured live at the peak of the bands career has never been previously issued.  Brand X was another one of those bands who were beloved of other musicians, and the more discerning of critics, but which despite everything never had the commercial success that it deserved.  They were a jazz fusion band active 1975 - 1980. Noted members included Phil Collins (drums), Percy Jones (bass), John Goodsall (guitar) and Robin Lumley (keyboards). Not long after jazz/rock fusion greats Brand X put out their 1980 album, 'Do They Hurt?,' the band members went their separate ways (until their comeback in 1992 which only featured Goodsall and Jones). This is a soundboard recording from one of Brand X's shows recorded at the Roxy, Los Angeles, California on Sunday, 23rd September 1979 11:30 pm to 1:00 am, recorded shortly after the release of Product.  As a historical document, it's interesting to hear Phil Collins and the band ham it up ("You've been a credit to Poland...") with silly asides before launching into lifelike versions of not-so-old favorites plus new songs from the just-released Product.

This album represents the earliest known recordings of Brand X Circa 1975-76. Recorded shortly before the release of the group's debut album - Unorthodox Behaviour - the source tapes for this material were recently recovered by John Goodsall from family members in England, who presented John with a box containing all sorts of Brand X memorabilia. At the bottom of the box were some old reels of tape of unknown origin. Upon review John and Percy realized that they had uncovered a long lost treasure - excellent quality recordings of Brand X's classic lineup performing previously unreleased material. This documents a period of the band's history which has been missing for over twenty years.

A mostly instrumental affair, Breakthrough is dominated by synthesizers. This is a great addition to the ever-increasingly diverse Gong canon.

Mick Abrahams/Leaving Home Blues ....import double CD $22.99

Original Jethro Tull guitarist Mick Abrahams had a falling out with front man Ian Anderson and left the band. One of the main reasons that he had fallen out with Anderson was that he was a blues purist, and didn't want to follow some of the more esoteric paths that Anderson was to lead the band into. No, he 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. So he started his own band and for reasons which remain obscure he named it Blodwyn Pig.  Over the years he also recorded a number of solo albums, steeped in the delta blues DNA that had mystically been passed down to him by Robert Johnson. Mick is 70 now, and not in the best of health, but he still has the heart of a bluesman and the remarkable musicianship on this gem of an album pays testament to that.

Most notable was his work with Robert Wyatt on the albums Rock Bottom (1974) and Ruth Is Stranger than Richard (1975), and with Hugh Hopper on 1984 (1973) and Hoppertunity Box (1976).  This album, Deep Water, originally released on Island records in 1987, was the result. An unsung classic!

Jack Lancaster & Rick van der Linden/Wild Connections ....import CD $16.99

Jack Lancaster, famous producer and member of Bloodwyn Pig, describes this record: "It's actually a fairly peculiar experimental album really. It's just - do you know Barry Morgan? Barry Morgan is the drummer out of Blue Mink and he had his own studios in London so it was me, Barry and Rick van der Linden, the Dutch keyboard player. It was an experimental album because it was completely synthesized, except for the drums of course. Rick and I wrote the stuff in Holland."

Corky Laing & The Perfect Child/Playing God ....import CD $16.99

Corky Laing & The Perfect Child/Playing God ....import CD $16.99

Mountain meets bioethics! Legendary Mountain drummer Corky Laing teams up with two internationally acclaimed philosophers (Prof. Matti Hayry and Dr. Tuija Takala) in this joint effort that brings together '70s style music and contemporary moral problems of gene technology. 'Playing God' is a concept album. 'Playing God' is a musical metaphor for today's attempt to attain perfection.  Musically the album covers many feels and approaches from soft ballads to riff-driven guitar rock, from meditative instrumentals to operatic melody lines.

Melting Euphoria/From the Madness We Began ....import CD $16.99

Melting Euphoria/From the Madness We Began ....import CD $16.99

Melting Euphoria were formed in San Francisco by bassist Anthony Budziszewski, keyboardist Don Falcone and drummer Mychael Merrill.  They debuted with Through The Strands of Time, a work characterized by spacey synthesizer sounds and tribal drumming.   The synthesis offered by this album was truly a synthesis of two worlds, the world of 1960s drug-addicted hippies and the world of 1990s high-tech addicted cyberpunks, one a self-centered spiritual world and the other a visionary but angst-ridden world.

RPWL/Wanted ....CD $15.99
RPWL/Wanted ....CD + DVD $19.99

RPWL/Wanted ....CD $15.99

Germany's outstanding art rock act RPWL was recently confronted with a rather difficult question: how do you follow up an epic and highly celebrated album as the Nietzsche-themed 'Beyond Man And Time'? Here's the answer: you tackle the really, really huge topic on your new record 'Wanted' - the ultimate liberation of the spirit.   But... How does an idea like that spring to the minds of an art rock band in the first place?  RPWL tell of the hero of two worlds, Giuseppe Garibaldi - who, being a tremendous admirer of the Greek antiquity, became aware of a scroll of Plato's in which he analyzes the work of Hippocrates. It can be read in Garibaldi's diaries that Hippocrates had in fact found the formula for a medicine that leads the spirit into a real and absolute world, free of all illusion and invisible ghost worlds. The question, however, that inevitably arises at that point is the following: is the human race ready for what Plato called the gift of absolute freedom?  On 'Wanted,' RPWL bring the principle of the concept album to a new level. That is how this gigantic piece of art evolves into a true explosion of creativity. Furthermore, the intellectual firepower of the content is in every way matched by the artistic and emotional depth of the music. More than ever, a sharp artistic edge and the hunger for discovery is what drives this record forward. Despite more than fifteen years in the scene, Yogi Lang (vocals, keyboard), Kalle Wallner (guitar), Marc Turiaux (drums), Markus Jehle (keyboard, piano) and Werner Taus (bass) brilliantly avoid playing it safe.  Limited digipak edition includes a bonus disc with DVD audio 5.1 Surround sound.

Missing Persons featuring Dale Bozzio/Missing in Action ....CD $15.99

Albert Lee & Hogan's Heroes/Frettening Behaviour ....import CD $18.99

"Frettening Behaviour" is the latest studio album by Grammy award winning guitar legend Albert Lee and his UK based band Hogan's Heroes. It brings together some fine and diverse material and features five songs penned by members of the band. Released under the band's own Heroic Records imprint and also including a number of gems written by the likes of Jim Lauderdale, Rodney Crowell, Gerry Goffin and Glen Campbell, the set runs the musical gamut, as one might expect from this most eclectic of acts.  The album opens with the Green Day classic "Good Riddance" and is followed by Paul Kennerly's retro rocker "Spellbound."  Then comes "No One Can Make My Sunshine Smile" a cover of an Everly Brothers' single form the '60s. These are followed by "Oh Marie" penned by band members Gavin Povey and Brian Hodgson and "The King Of Broken Hearts" which features Peter Baron on lead vocal.  Peter takes the lead vocal slot again on the Brian Hodgson / Ray Peters' songs "Showdown" and "You Know You Just Might." Gavin Povey is the featured vocalist on his own compositions "Big Town Girl," "hen Elvis Broke The News" and "Looks Like Love."  Albert is the lead vocalist on all the other tracks, which include the evergreen "My Window Faces The South," Rodney Crowell's beautiful "A Song For The Life," Richie Havens' "Dreaming As One" and Glen Campbell's poignant "A Better Place."  The cover artwork will be recognizable to many as that of Klaus Voormann, known of course for The Beatles' "Revolver" and "Anthology" album covers.

Dawn/Darker ....CD $15.99

Dawn/Darker ....CD $15.99

'Darker' is the long awaited second album from Swiss progressive rock band Dawn. It has been 6 years since the quartet rocked the prog world with their expert take on old school symphonic rock. Their music is riddled with vintage keyboard sounds and flowing guitar solos. Plaintive vocals ascribe a kinship to the British Canterbury school. The album is conceived as a series of compositions dealing with Man in the 21st century: his fears, his conception of life, his reaction to technology, nuclear power, and the planet's suffocation. Audiophile engineer Bob Katz mastered the superb production.

Frequency Drift/Over ....CD $15.99

Allman Brothers Band/Boston Common 8/17/71 ....CD $13.99

Allman Brothers Band/Boston Common 8/17/71 ....CD $13.99

Formed in Jacksonville, Florida in late-March 1969, the Allman Brothers Band - guitarists Duane Allman and Dickey Betts, Gregg Allman on vocals and keyboards, Berry Oakley on bass, and drummers Jaimoe and Butch Trucks - eventually would revolutionize the American music scene with their wicked and volatile blend of improvised rock, blues, country and jazz, and their live performances would soon become the stuff of legend. After re-locating to Macon, the band played a handful of shows in Florida and Georgia before journeying up the coast for their first-ever gig in the Northeast, which would be at a club called the Boston Tea Party, in May 1969.  1971 was a watershed year for the Allman Brothers Band - they recorded their seminal live album, At Fillmore East, in March, and continued to tour relentlessly. By this point, their performances had reached a level of musicianship and intensity that other groups could only dream of. At Fillmore East was released in July to massive critical acclaim, and a month later, they rolled back into Boston to once again jam in the Common, playing two shows on August 17th.  Boston Common 8/17/71 allows one to journey back to those halcyon days of Duane and Berry, when the ABB was hittin' the note like no one else.  Features original lineup (Duane, Gregg, Dickey, Butch, Jaimoe & Berry).  Single-CD live show includes 80 minutes of classic Allman material.  Recorded 10 weeks prior to Duane's passing, and one month after the release of the legendary At Fillmore East album.  Boston Common show is an uncirculated album that has not been bootlegged

Steve Roach & Kelly David/The Long Night ....CD $15.99

Steve Roach & Kelly David/The Long Night ....CD $15.99

The Long Night is a deep-breathing sigh of the eternail nocturnal: gossamer atmospheres for the still hours of the night. focusing on the non-thythmic, textural-harmonic electronic soundscapes, its midnight path leads to a state of gleaming serenity and calmness. The meditative environment is filled with open spaces and tendrils of sound, composed of shifting subtle moods and gleaming handworked electronic passages. The Long Night is a 61-minute contemplative zen noir of minimal radiant ambience.

Erik Wollo/Timelines ....CD $15.99

Erik Wollo/Timelines ....CD $15.99

John Zorn/Psychomagia ....CD $14.99

John Zorn/Psychomagia ....CD $14.99

Psychomagia is the new album by the fabulous quartet of Abraxas, the acclaimed Moroccan Rock arrangements for the Book of Angels series. Here they perform a complex new suite of music written expressly for them by Downtown alchemist John Zorn. Drawing inspiration from the magical writings of Giordano Bruno and Alejandro Jodorowski and others, Zorn has written a bold collection of compositions that challenge the musicians to the breaking point. With a program ranging from some of the most intense ritualistic sounds you are likely to hear to tender minimalistic odes, this is a surprising new volume in Zorn's mystic series that matches the intensity and power of Moonchild, PainKiller and Naked City. Recorded at Orange Music and mixed by Bill Laswell.

John Zorn/The Alchemist ....CD $16.99

John Zorn/The Alchemist ....CD $16.99

Zorn's string quartets are some of the most important modern contributions to the canon and a new Zorn quartet is truly a cause for celebration. His sixth quartet is inspired by the hermetic Angelic actions of John Dee and his mystical medium Edward Kelley and contains some of the most intense contrapuntal writing he has yet achieved. Replete with the procedures of distillation, calcination, crystallization, sublimation, purification, rotation as well numerology, prayers, canons, contrapuntal complexity and the ghost of a familiar fugue, this music is part seance, part science, and all Zorn - in short, a trip through an alchemist's laboratory! Performed here by Zorn's own Quartet, this is the definitive recording of this important and powerful string quartet, already considered a modern classic. Also included is Zorn's mystical response to the ancient Newgrange sacred site in Ireland, a beautiful and evocative setting of Amergin, one of the oldest Celtic sacred texts, written for three female voices.

John Zorn/The Hermetic Organ Vol. 2 - St. Paul's Chapel ....CD $14.99

John Zorn/The Hermetic Organ Vol. 2 - St. Paul's Chapel ....CD $14.99

Drawing upon traditions as varied as Messiaen, Xenakis, Ligeti, Bach, Tournemire, Ives, Korla Pandit and The Phantom of the Opera, Zorn's organ improvisations are transcendent, inspiring, ecstatic experiences, offering a direct line to the workings of his rich compositional imagination. Performed at St. Paul's Chapel at a time when the organ was undergoing extensive reconstruction, the limited number of stops available to him focused his imagination to new heights, resulting in Zorn's most revelatory recital to date. The second volume documenting these legendary organ recitals is a transcendent experience filled with moments of passion, tenderness, fragility and extraordinary power.

Velvet Underground/Velvet Underground ....CD $14.99
Velvet Underground/Velvet Underground ....vinyl LP $24.99

Velvet Underground/Velvet Underground ....CD $14.99

Originally released as part of MGM's Golden Archive Series, this 1970 album (simply referred to as Velvet Underground) is a terrific sin-and-salvation selection from the first three VU albums - just the kind of thing to take along to a desert island or to the end of the world. It's essentially their earliest greatest hits collection and the perfect encapsulation of their Verve/MGM run. Long prized by collectors, Sundazed presents it on campact disc and 180-gram vinyl from the original master tapes with new liner notes by Rolling Stone's David Fricke.

Nico/All Tomorrow's Parties ....CD $10.99

Subsignal/Paraiso ....CD $14.99
Subsignal/Paraiso (Deluxe Edition) ....double CD $16.99

Subsignal/Paraiso ....CD $14.99

Guitarist and producer Markus Steffen explains the new album: "For me, Paraíso is the perfect missing link between our first two albums. Regarding the style of songwriting we did not want repeat ourselves, but at the same time we paid heed not to deny our typical trademarks (strong melodies, the mix of harder and softer passages, strings, acoustic guitars, etc.).  So, the biggest challenge was to get our points across in a 60-minute album. But I am convinced that we have been successful - and hopefully our fans will share our opinion."  2CD-Deluxe version with a 24-page booklet!

Grateful Dead - Dick's Picks 10: Winterland Arena December 29 1977 3PC $44.98

GRATEFUL DEAD - Dick's Picks 20: Capital Centre Landover Md $61.98
Four CD set. At a mere two songs short of two complete shows and those two songs, 'Bertha' and 'It's All Over Now', were played at both shows, so they appear on the set at least once Dick's Picks Vol. 20 is one of the more jam-packed (or is that packed with jams?) entries in the series. But this volume has a lot more going for it than just five hours-plus of music. 1976 marked the return of the band to the road after a 20-month hiatus with Mickey Hart back in tow for the first time in five years, and it is a newly rejuvenated outfit we hear playing a mix of the new and old. Perhaps the most sublime moment is the transition from 'Comes a Time' to 'Eyes of the World' (and then to the out-of-nowhere 'Orange Tango Jam') during the second set of the Syracuse show, but both shows are full of sparkling performances propelled by the newly reunited Rhythm Devils. Another keeper from the vaults.

HELLBORG, JONAS - Jazz Raj $16.98
The Jazz Raj is a Jonas Hellborg trio recording continuing his collaboration with guitarist Mattias 'IA' Eklundh and introducing drummer Ranjit Barot. The music is seamlessly bonding Western and Indian improvised music while avoiding the stylistic clichés that are so often the pitfalls of this type of music. The Jazz Raj continues the tradition of the bass/drums/guitar trios that Hellborg has been fronting for more than 2 decades featuring wonderful musicians such as Shawn Lane, Buckethead, Michael Shrieve and Jeff Sipe. The tracks on the record are two half hour extended compositions with sections interrelated thematically using western interpretation of Indian Ragas. It is a genre defying work; it is Jazz Metal and Indian music but primarily music for the pleasure of listening.

HELLBORG, JONAS - Silent Life / Solo Bass 1990 $16.98

HUSBAND, GARY / MACHACEK, ALEX - Now $16.98
Now brings together two maverick voices of contemporary improvisation in a engaging, open-hearted conversation. Collaborating as a duo for the first time, pianist Gary Husband and guitarist Alex Machacek opt for a spare, stripped-down approach that highlights their intuitive, borderline-telepathic interplay across a program of original compositions. Whether locked in dazzling unison runs or gracefully yielding to evocative, sparse passages, Husband and Machacek prove to be both formidable performers and remarkably attuned listeners - making their collaboration a vibrant, exchange in which one voice supports, enhances, and enriches the other.

MAMAS & PAPAS - Gathering Of Flowers: The Anthology Of The Mamas $18.98
Digitally remastered edition of this 1970 collection. THOUGH A GATHERING OF FLOWERS was put together by ABC/Dunhill Records immediately after the demise of the Mamas and 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. The set also offered a photo-packed, 16 page booklet with excellent liner notes by Andy Wickham alongside the dozens of rare images, all of which we have reproduced here on Real Gone Music for this historic collection's CD debut.

Iggy Pop - Party CD $21.98
Digitally remastered deluxe edition housed in a replica mini LP sleeve. Acknowledged as one of Punk Rock’s founders, Iggy Pop shows a remarkable stylistic range on 1981’s Party. 'Pumpin' For Jill' sounds like twisted bubblegum pop and the album’s single, 'Bang Bang,' brushed the Billboard charts.

Iggy Pop - Soldier CD $21.98
For Soldier, the album he released in 1980, Iggy Pop teamed up with veterans of luminary bands including the Sex Pistols, XTC and the Patti Smith Group. "Knocking 'Em Down (In The City)" and "Loco Mosquito" are standout tracks here.

TORN, DAVID - That Awkward Moment (Score) - O.S.T. $14.98

TOWER OF POWER - Hipper Than Hip (Yesterday Today & Tomorrow) 2CD $25.98
Two CD set. On May 14, 1974, Tower of Power went to radio station WLIR in Hempstead, Long Island and played a live-in-the-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 about five minutes of listening to this show, we know we HAVE to find a way to expose the record-buying public to this performance. So, fingers crossed, we send it to the band, and much to our delight, they agree with us. Indeed, Hipper Than Hip captures the band at their commercial peak, fresh from releasing their fourth album, Back to Oakland. What makes the recording particularly overpowering aside from the band's performance, which is so on the money that calling it "tight" doesn't really do it justice is that it was a live-in-the-studio session, so the fidelity is the equal of a studio recording, yet it has all the passion and immediacy of a live concert.

VEGA, SUZANNE - Tales From The Realm Of The Queen Of Pentacles $13.98
2014 release, the first studio album of new material in seven years from the singer/songwriter. TALES FROM THE REALM... features 10 new songs, each telling a story that has to do with the material world and the world of the spirit and how they intersect. Suzanne spent the past few years writing and recording these new gems on the road, recording portions in Chicago, London, Prague, LA and New York City, and Kyserike Station, an old train station in upstate New York. Tracking for the album took place mostly at the Clubhouse Studios in Rhinebeck, and the album was mixed by Kevin Killen, who has worked with Peter Gabriel and Kate Bush.

VELVET UNDERGROUND - Golden Archive Series $16.98
Digitally remastered edition of this collection from the Alt-Rock pioneers, originally released in 1970. Features "Candy Says", "Femme Fatale", "Heroin", "Sunday Morning" and more.

Good Ol Freda DVD $25.98
Freda Kelly was just a shy Liverpudlian teenager when she was asked to work for a local band hoping to make it big. Though she had no concept of how far they would go, Freda had faith in The Beatles from the beginning, and The Beatles had faith in her. History notes that The Beatles were together for 10 years, but Freda worked for them for 11. Many people came in and out of the band's circle as they grew to international stardom, but Freda remained a staple because of her unfaltering loyalty and dedication. As the Beatles' devoted secretary and friend, Freda was there as history unfolded; she was witness to the evolution advances and setbacks, breakthroughs and challenges of the greatest band in history.

Hand - Other Side of the World Limited Edition CD $17.95
It has been said that a story isn’t over "until it’s over". 2012 Golden Pavilion reissue of 1972’s "Everybody’s Own" by the Swiss/ American progressive rock band HAND, celebrating the 40th anniversary of that seminal and unique album, seemed like a fitting conclusion to a small but significant body of music. The reissue sold out within days of its vinyl release, and its success appeared to gracefully close the chapter on a short lived but notable band. And yet…no one, least of all principal songwriter and singer Marc Osborne, seemingly retired from music and a teacher for the past 22 years, and his founding partner Nick Zoullas, the remarkable harmonica player whose haunting playing anchored "Everybody’s Own", could have anticipated the new chapter that was to unfold.

These touchstones marked a ‘satellitic’ beginning for Penguin Cafe’s new album entitled RED BOOK, which then presents a collection of songs that return to earth to undertake a rich, cross-continental musical journey.
