Magma/Riah Sahiltaahk ....import CD $16.99

riah.jpg (4176 bytes)

The original version of Riah Sahiltaahk that was recorded in 1971 is featured on the album 1001 Degrees Centigrade (vol. 2). But at the time its composer, Christian Vander,was unhappy with the arrangement written by the group. This radically new version, adapted to suit the group's current line-up, is more faithful to the spirit of Magma's music and its uniquely weird and wonderful prog-rock style.

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

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

Anthony Phillips/Harvest of the Heart - An Anthology [Deluxe Remastered] ....import 5 CD Box Set $89.99

Esoteric Recordings is proud to announce the release of a newly remastered deluxe 5CD boxed set anthology by legendary guitarist, composer and instrumentalist Anthony Phillips.   Anthony was a founding member of Genesis alongside Peter Gabriel, Mike Rutherford and Tony Banks with whom he recorded the albums From Genesis To Revelation and Trespass. After leaving the group in 1970, Anthony studied orchestration and harmony externally at the Guildhall School of Music and Drama in London. After passing his LGSM exams, he taught music at Reeds School and Peper Harrow whilst continuing to compose and record in his home studio.  He marked his return to the commercial music scene with the release of his debut solo album The Geese & The Ghost in 1977 and since then has created a large and diverse output as a recording artist. As well as album releases such as Wise After The Event, Slow Dance, 1984 and Field Day, he has to date also released ten albums in the Private Parts & Pieces series and four volumes in the Missing Links series. Amongst other projects he collaborated with Harry Williamson on the large-scale instrumental work Tarka and he also co-wrote the stage musical Alice with Richard Scott. Whilst Anthony continues to release solo albums to critical acclaim, increasingly his music has also been much in-demand for film and television. Commissions have included scores for both dramas and documentaries including the award-winning Land of Dragons and Creatures of the Magic Water. He has also established himself as one of the most prolific and successful composers of library music, with tracks from his extensive output being regularly featured on commercials, films and television series throughout the world.  His extensive back catalogue is celebrated with the release of "Harvest of the Heart" a 5CD deluxe boxed set, which celebrates Anthony's rich musical heritage by featuring recordings made between 1969 and the present day, drawn from his many albums. In addition the set will include ten previously unreleased tracks, the unreleased 1973 recording "Silver Song" (featuring Phil Collins as vocalist) and the rare track "Compression" by Mike Rutherford, (previously unreleased on CD) which features Anthony and was the B-side to Mike's 1980 single "Working in Line."

Quantum Jump/Quantum Jump [Expanded & Remastered] ....import CD $26.99

Esoteric Recordings are pleased to announce the release of a newly re-mastered and expanded edition of the classic 1976 debut album by Quantum Jump.  The band came together at Farmyard studios in Buckinghamshire in 1974 and comprised Rupert Hine (vocals, keyboards), former Caravan member John G. Perry (bass, vocals), Mark Warner (guitar) and former Peddlers member Trevor Morais (drums).  The band's self-titled debut album was written and recorded at Farmyard studios throughout 1975 and was eventually released on the Electric Records label in 1976 to critical acclaim. Stylistically the album featured a unique fusion of jazz and rock, displaying the excellent musicianship of the band members, along with a healthy sense of humour. The album featured outstanding tracks such as 'No American Starship,' 'Something at the Bottom of the Sea' and perhaps the band's most famous track 'The Lone Ranger' (originally issued as a single in 1976 and after considerable airplay was banned by the BBC for its lyrical content). Remixed in 1979 'The Lone Ranger' became a top five UK hit.  Newly re-mastered from the original tapes, this reissue includes five rare bonus tracks, taken from a single and the 1979 remix compilation album "Mixing." It also includes a booklet that fully restores the original album artwork and a new essay.

Fish on Friday/Godspeed ....import CD $26.99

Fish On Friday/Godspeed ....import CD $26.99

Esoteric Antenna is pleased to announce the release of "Godspeed," the new studio album by Fish on Friday.  The album is the third release by the band who formed in 2009 when Belgian Producer and musician Frank van Bogaert and keyboard player William Beckers established Fis on Friday as a studio-based progressive rock project. The band's debut album was released in 2010 and saw the band augmented by Californian guitarist Marty Townsend and drummer Marcus Weymaere. The album's melodic progressive approach soon drew very favourable critical stylistic comparisons with the progressive side of Alan Parsons Project. The reaction to the group was encouraging enough for them to embark on performing several live shows in Belgium, before embarking on their second album, "Airborne," which gained a wider audience and sales by receiving airplay on mainstream Belgian radio alongside specialist progressive rock stations globally. "Airborne" also featured the virtuoso bass player Nick Beggs (Steven Wilson band, Steve Hackett band, Lifesigns) guesting on one track, an experience that led to Nick officially becoming a member of Fish on Friday for the band's new (and arguably most progressive) album "Godspeed."  This stunning album features a grasp of melody on songs such as 'Callin' Planet Home,' 'Just a Nightmare,' 'Ghost Song,' 'Sanctuary' and the album's epic ten minute title track. "Godspeed" also features a special guest, Theo Travis, the virtuoso saxophonist and flautist noted for his work with Steven Wilson, Soft Machine Legacy, Robert Fripp, Gong, Bill Nelson et al. All in all "Godspeed" is a progressive rock album of fine songs, excellent musicianship and is the eagerly anticipated next step in the story of Fish on Friday.

P.F.M./Paper Charms: The Complete BBC Recordings 1974-1976 ....import double CD + DVD $44.99

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

Esoteric Recordings are pleased to announce the release of an official expanded and newly re-mastered two CD edition of the classic 1989 eponymous album by Anderson Bruford Wakeman & Howe.. At the close of the 1980s, fans of progressive rock were delighted and surprised to learn that members of the classic line-up of Yes, namely Jon Anderson, Bill Bruford, Rick Wakeman and Steve Howe were reuniting to record a studio album and to tour the world. The resulting self-titled album was originally issued on Arista Records in 1989 and was a global hit.  Featuring all of the trademarks of the classic Yes sound, "Anderson Bruford Wakeman & Howe" contained some fine extended works, including 'Brother of Mine,' 'Quartet' and 'Order of the Universe,' along with shorter compositions such as 'Let's Pretend' (co-written with Vangelis).  This Esoteric Recordings edition has been newly re-mastered from the Arista masters and includes an additional CD featuring rare mixes and tracks issued on the various singles and 12-inch EPs that were released to promote the album including the spectacular, but very rare, 'Vultures in the City.'  The original album artwork is fully restored and the booklet features a new essay.

Keith Emerson/At the Movies ....import triple CD $41.99

Esoteric Recordings are pleased to announce a newly re-mastered edition of "At the Movies," a 3 CD set issued in a clamshell box that gathers together Keith Emerson's film soundtrack music.  Following the break-up of Emerson Lake and Palmer at the end of the 1970s, Keith Emerson ventured into the world of film soundtrack composition with his score for Italian director Dario Aregento's horror film "Inferno" in 1980. This in turn led to Emerson being commissioned to compose and perform the music for the film "Nighthawks" in 1981. From here a succession of film scores were to follow for directors in Italy, Japan and the United States. "At the Movies" gathers together Keith's music for seven movies; "Nighthawks," "Best Revenge," "Inferno," "La Chiesa (The Church)," "Murderock," "Harmagedon" and "Godzilla Final Wars."  The set also includes an illustrated booklet with new essay and photographs.

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

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

Man/The Twang Dynasty [Expanded Edition] ....import triple CD $41.99

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

Esoteric Recordings are pleased to announce the release of an expanded official remastered edition of "Electric Shocks," the first solo album by the legendary multi-instrumentalist, eccentric and former Bonzo Dog Doo Dah Band member Roger Ruskin Spear.  Originally released in 1972 on the United Artists label, "Electric Shocks" carried on the wit, humour and musical eccentricity that Roger had first explored with the Bonzo's and featured musicians such as Peter Banks (Yes), The Flamin' Groovies, Thunderclap Newman and B. J. Cole on this delightfully off-the-wall record.   This Esoteric Recordings edition has been newly re-mastered from the original master tapes and features four bonus tracks that comprised the rare 1971 EP "Rebel Trouser." The reissue also features an illustrated booklet with new essay.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Primus/Primus & the Chocolate Factory with the Fungi Ensemble ....CD $13.99

Primus/Primus & the Chocolate Factory with the Fungi Ensemble ....CD $13.99

The definitive Primus line-up - Les Claypool, guitarist Larry LaLonde, and drummer Tim Alexander - is back together and set to release their first full length studio set in nearly 20 years, 'Primus & the Chocolate Factory,' on ATO Records. "The idea was to combine the Frog Brigade and Primus, and do this record,' says Claypool. I think like a good portion of the planet, we were all pretty put off by the remake of the 'Willy Wonka' movie - the Tim Burton version. I really wanted to pay homage to a film [1971's 'Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory,' starring Gene Wilder] that was very important to me as a kid and very influential to me musically. So that's what we did. And as opposed to just going in and recording the songs and playing them the way they are in the film, we twisted them up a bit....twisted them up a lot."  "The recording is about my early perception of the original Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory film," says Claypool. "The notion wasn't so much to go in and redo the soundtrack note for note as much as it was to utilize the classic elements of the music yet try to reflect some of the darker undertones of the Roald Dahl books, because when you read those books, there is an eerie and somewhat menacing aspect implied."

Dennis DeYoung/...And the Music of Styx Live in Los Angeles ....double CD + DVD $22.99

On March 18th, 2014, Dennis DeYoung, the legendary front man of Styx and author of five key songs that define that band's career, returned to Los Angeles for the first time during his solo career to play a sold out show at the El Rey Theater. Recorded live for AXS-TV and captured in pristine HD quality, the performance has been slated for release via Frontiers Records.  Los Angeles FM radio giant 100.3 The Sound aided in show promotion with morning show host Uncle Joe Benson offering tickets to listeners in limited supply, just 20 seats available to winning entrants. In just a few short hours of the show's announcement, tickets sold out at an astounding fan appreciation price of just five dollars. With gratitude to fans that have supported DeYoung over the years, the show was truly a gift of thanks to long-time fans that haven't seen him perform outside of Styx in Los Angeles, ever.  With doors slated to open at 8:00 pm, fans started to line the sidewalk on Wilshire Boulevard with tickets in hand hours beforehand. They were all buzzing about what songs the band might perform.....not even their wildest expectations came close to what they would get absolutely, positively blown away by.  The amazing stage set was designed by DeYoung's son. Through the black backdrop shone multiple gem-like circles that glowed from one side of the stage to the other like a blanket of stars with the colors of the rainbow. Neon-like spots aimed both high and low rained down an array of light that swept over the audience. Packed from the front of the stage to the back of the house, the inside of the El Rey seemed more like a night at the Forum in 1985; just bigger than life and ready for broadcast.  Opening the show with "The Grand Illusion," the band performed for an hour and a half, and saw DeYoung joyously and playfully interacting with the crowd. On two occasions he was handed items from the audience that he shared with fans. One was a copy of the Styx "Paradise Theater" album, on vinyl, and another was a fan-made sign requesting a personal song favorite - "Desert Moon."  AXS-TV brought in a 25+ foot boom arm and 8 cameras to capture the magic of the show and the house production offered simply the most crisp and well perfected tone the band could create for a night that fans are going to cherish owning documentation of!

Thank You Scientist/Maps of Non-Existant Places ....CD $12.99

Thank You Scientist/Maps of Non-Existant Places ....CD $12.99

For the uninitiated, Thank You Scientist was forged from the music program at Montclair State University in New Jersey when guitarist Tom Monda met saxophonist Ellis Jasenovic and trumpeter Andrew Digrius. The three bonded over their love for Frank Zappa, Mahavishnu Orchestra, The Beatles and Harry Nilsson. Those influences would become the seeds for what Thank You Scientist would evolve into today.  With the addition of vocalist Salvatore Marrano, bassist Greg Colacino, drummer Odin Alvarez and violinist Ben Karas, Thank You Scientist's lineup of virtuoso musicians was complete. The band would go on to self-release an EP, The Perils of Time Travel, in 2011 followed by their debut full-length, Maps of Non-Existent Places, in 2012, which caught the ear of Claudio Sanchez, a fellow purveyor of progressive stylings, and led to his signing of the band.   To pinpoint Thank You Scientist's sound would be inconceivable. On Maps of Non-Existent Places they hold a virtual master class on musicianship, fusing elements of progressive rock with jazz fusion, classical, metal, psychedelic and pop for a head spinning, mind-blowing listening experience. The seven-piece band, who collectively play some 20 instruments, boasts a hyper-composed sound which is indebted to their experience and formal training in both classical and jazz idioms.  A Frank Zappa for the indie generation?  Incubus jamming with the Mahavishnu Orchestra?  Mr. Bungle and Steely Dan joining forces to fight Godzilla?  King Crimson and the Brecker Brothers serenading you at your bedside? It all seems so strange on paper, yet it's sure to satisfy your ears in the best of ways.

Allen & Lande/The Great Divide ....CD $16.99

Allen & Lande/The Great Divide ....CD $16.99

The first chapter of Jorn Lande and Russell Allen's collaboration, "The Battle" was unleashed in September 2005 with unanimous acclaim from fans and critics alike.  Many websites and magazines named it "Record of the Year." The success made it one of the most popular releases ever in the Melodic Heavy Metal sub-genre, thanks to beautiful, sweeping piano and keyboards, heavy guitar riffs, virtuoso guitar solos, hooky choruses and the vocal talents of two of the finest Heavy Metal singers around. A great part of the success of the release was also due to the presence of multitalented Swedish guitar player and songwriter Magnus Karlsson.  In 2007, the second chapter entitled "The Revenge" was released and again was met with an amazing reaction from press and fans. Heavier and with a tighter production, thanks to the involvement of Dennis Ward at the mix, the album excited the many fans who loved the first chapter. Another successful release followed in 2010, entitled "The Showdown" which closed the trilogy.  Russell Allen is the singer of the American progressive metal band Symphony X, who have released six studio albums and one live record so far. More than once Symphony X received accolades such as "Best Progressive Power Metal Band Worldwide" or awards for the "Best Progressive Metal Album of the Year." Russell Allen also sings for the more straight ahead hard rock/metal band, Adrenaline Mob. Highly rated Masterplan vocalist and solo artist, Jorn Lande has a vocal capability that is world class, distinctive, rich and spanning a large range.  He is in high demand and has appeared as guest or sung for such bands and projects as Avantasia, Ark, The Snakes and many others. He is also a well-known solo artist with various successful studio albums released, since the debut "Starfire" in 1999.  The new album, entitled "The Great Divide" sees a major change in the formula since songwriting and production is now in the hands of former Stratovarius guitartist, Timo Tolkki. After the success of the initial trilogy, a fresher musical direction was needed to move forward to the next logical chapter and certainly this new album, while operating in the usual musical landscape, offers fabulous songwriting and as usual some incredible vocals from the two amazing singers.

The Hilliard Ensemble/Transeamus ....CD $17.99

The Hilliard Ensemble/Transeamus ....CD $17.99

Having recorded more than 20 albums for ECM since the mid-'80s, The Hilliard Ensemble caps its discography before retirement with a final release: Transeamus, a collection of polyphonic Carols and Motets - in two, three and four parts - from 15th-century England. The British vocal ensemble's very first recording included music from the court of Henry VIII, and Transeamus brings their odyssey through the ages full circle. The album includes many of the group's favorite pieces from this era, including previously unrecorded items from its concert programs by the likes of John Plummer, Walter Lambe and William Cornysh. More of the album's works are by composers rendered anonymous by time, yet all of this music is rich with enduring personality.  Tenor David James says: "The sweet harmonies might appear uncomplicated, but this transparency of sound creates a cumulative effect that is mesmerizing. The album ends with 'Ah gentle Jesu.' We know the composer's name, Sheryngham, but virtually nothing else. On paper, it is a simple dialogue between Christ on the cross and a penitent sinner; however, the intensity of the music is so overwhelming that, from our experience in concert, both listener and performer are left in stunned silence."

Trevor Rabin/Live in L.A. ....CD $14.99

Trevor Rabin/Live in L.A. ....CD $14.99

Recorded in late 1989 at a star-studded Roxy Theater show on the Sunset Strip, Trevor Rabin's Live in LA was a triumphant showcase for the South African musician's considerable talents.  Bolstered by keyboardist Mark Mancina, drummer Lou Molino III and bassist Jim Simmons, the collection captures the best performances of two shows on the final night of the Can't Look Away tour (his current album at the time).  The show's version of "Owner of a Lonely Heart" leans heavily on audience participation, giving it the unlikely air of soccer match sing-along. Another show highlight, "Love Will Find A Way" from Yes' Big Generator had unlikely roots: in that it was originally intended for Stevie Nicks. "Solly's Beard," the bonus track on this edition, showcases Rabin's acoustic guitar prowess to great effect.  Tracks 1-10 were recorded Late 1989 at the Roxy Theatre in Los Angeles, California.

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

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

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

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

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

The artists joining Sting and Musical Director/Producer Rob Mathes on this album include both longtime collaborators and musicians with roots in Northeast England.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

When Sunn O))) first approached Scott Walker about appearing on their 2009 album Monoliths & Dimensions, they didn't know what it would actually lead to.  Four years on, Scott returned with something even more enticing, collaborating on Soused, a body of work he was writing with them in mind.  Recorded in London in early 2014 and produced by Scott Walker and long-time ally Peter Walsh with the assistance of musical director Mark Warman, Soused is a 5-track, 50-minute record that cements the status of both acts' wide-reaching and otherworldly renown.

Captain Beefheart/Sun Zoom Spark: 1970 to 1972  ....4CD Set $55.99

Captain Beefheart/Sun Zoom Spark: 1970 to 1972  ....4CD Set $55.99

In the legendary Captain Beefheart discography, attention usually focuses on the carefully wrought, experimental music heard on Trout Mask Replica. As a consequence, the three stellar albums recorded soon after - Lick My Decals Off, Baby, The Spotlight Kid and Clear Spot - are often overlooked.  Rhino intends to change that with a four-disc collection that revisits the albums Captain Beefheart (aka Don Van Vliet) recorded with the Magic Band in the early Seventies. It includes all three albums, which have been remastered for the first time, as well as an entire disc featuring 14 previously unissued outtakes from that era.

Can/Out of Reach ....CD $13.99

Can/Out of Reach ....CD $13.99

Can was founded in 1968 by Irmin Schmidt, Holger Czukay, Michael Karoli and Jaki Liebezeit who formed a group which would utilize and transcend all boundaries of ethnic, electronic, experimental, and modern classical music.  Out Of Reach, the 10th studio album by Can has been unavailable in any official format since its original release in 1978.  Out Of Reach is one of Can's lesser known albums. This is due in large part to the fact that bassist Holger Czukay left the band while this album was being recorded, and drummer Jaki Liebezeit had a reduced role. Most of the rhythm duties were left to percussionist, Reebop Kwaku Baah. New bassist Rosko Gee largely leads the group, and his jazz-inflected playing is marvellous, especially on the centrepiece improvisations "November" and "Serpentine."  The band's powerful influence has never diminished, and their indelible mark is apparent in the bands who freely acknowledge their importance - from Portishead, James Murphy, New Order, Factory Floor, Public Image Ltd, Mogwai and Radiohead - as well as across other disciplines such as visual art and literature.

Steve Reich/Radio Rewrite ....CD $15.99

Steve Reich/Radio Rewrite ....CD $15.99

Nonesuch releases Pulitzer Prize-winning composer Steve Reich's album Radio Rewrite on September 30, 2014. Co-commissioned for and recorded by Alarm Will Sound, the title piece references two songs by the English band Radiohead. Alan Pierson conducts this premiere recording of Radio Rewrite, which was composed in 2012. The album also includes recordings of Electric Counterpoint (1987) and Piano Counterpoint, which is a 2011 transcription by Vincent Corver of Reich's 1973 Six Pianos; the works are performed, respectively, by Radiohead's guitarist, Jonny Greenwood, and pianist Vicky Chow, who is a member of the Bang on a Can All-Stars.  Reich says of his new piece: "Over the years composers have used pre-existing music (folk or classical) as material for new pieces of their own. Radio Rewrite, along with Proverb (Perotin) and Finishing the Hat - Two Pianos (Sondheim), is my modest contribution to this genre." He continues, "Now, in the early 21st century, we live in an age of remixes where musicians take audio samples of other music and remix them into audio of their own. Being a composer who works with musical notation I chose to reference two songs from the rock group Radiohead for an ensemble of musicians playing non-rock instruments: 'Everything in Its Right Place' and 'Jigsaw Falling into Place.'"

Daniel Lanois/Flesh and Machine ....CD $16.99

Daniel Lanois/Flesh and Machine ....CD $16.99

Daniel Lanois is one of the most influential record producers of the modern era: the man who brought Bob Dylan back; longtime collaborator with Brian Eno, soundsculpting a series of mammoth releases for U2; and producer of breakthrough late-career albums by Willie Nelson and Emmylou Harris. But before all that, Daniel Lanois was an experimental musician, recording his unique guitar voicings for groundbreaking albums with guys like Brian Eno and Jon Hassell, along the way helping to invent a genre called ambient music. What is lost in the wild success of his production career is Lanois' musical life at the edge, which is where Flesh and Machine, his new album on ANTI-, comes full circle. A wildly ambitious, diverse exploration of modern sonics, Flesh and Machine careens from the huge guitar skronk of "The End" to the haunted landscapes of "Iceland." But perhaps for the first time, Lanois' new album highlights the strange parallel evolution that has taken place in Daniel's music; alongside the developments in IDM that launched from the same '70s avante-intrumental roots as Eno and company, Lanois' music has developed a rhythmic complexity heard in the most adventurous music by Autechre or Matmos. Only for Lanois, nothing is digital. Dense, visceral music that combines the primitive stomach-pounding volume of rock with the heartbreaking found sonics of early electronic music, Flesh and Machine reminds us that we are bodies in a mechanized world, and that in the midst of our digital noise we must not forget to breathe.

Thurston Moore/The Best Day ....CD $15.99

Thurston Moore/The Best Day ....CD $15.99

The Best Day, Thurston Moore's first solo record since 2011's Demolished Thoughts, radiates with both his signature dynamism of dense thrashing electric guitars as well as blissful 12-string acoustic ballads.  Recorded with Thurston's current band line-up of James Sedwards (guitars, UK), Deb Googe (of My Bloody Valentine, bass, UK) and Steve Shelley (Sonic Youth, drums, USA), there are also a some tracks that feature all instrumentation by Thurston.  Thurston Moore has been at the forefront of the alternative rock scene since that particular obriquet was first used to signify any music that challenged and defied the mainstream standard. He is the founder and ringleader of Sonic Youth, the band that turned on an entire generation to the value of experimentation in rock n' roll - from its inspiration on a nascent Nirvana, to Sonic Youth's own Daydream Nation album being chosen by the US Library of Congress for historical preservation in the National Recording Registry in 2006.  This is a record defined by positivity and radical love. The songs range from opener "Speak to the Wild," a Crazy Horse-like paean to anti-authority and activism, to "Vocabularies," a paean to a new realization of language which includes ALL people.

Opeth/Pale Communion ....CD $14.99

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

Robert Plant's new album, Lullaby and... The Ceaseless Roar, will be released on Nonesuch/Warner Bros. Records. Produced by Plant, the album is his label debut and features 11 new recordings, nine of which are original songs written by Plant with his band, The Sensational Space Shifters - Justin Adams: bendirs, djembe, guitars, tehardant, background vocals; John Baggott: keyboards, loops, moog bass, piano, tabal, background vocals; Juldeh Camara: kologo, ritti, Fulani vocals; Billy Fuller: bass, drum programming, omnichord, upright bass; Dave Smith: drum set; and Liam "Skin" Tyson: banjo, guitar, background vocals.

Justin Adams and John Baggott of The Sensational Space Shifters appeared on Plant's 2002 release Dreamland, while all but Camara and Smith appeared on 2005's Mighty Rearranger. "It's really a celebratory record, powerful, gritty, African, Trance meets Zep," Plant says. "The whole impetus of my life as a singer has to be driven by a good brotherhood. I am very lucky to work with The Sensational Space Shifters. They come from exciting areas of contemporary music...I have been around awhile and I ask myself, do I have anything to say? Is there a song still inside me? In my heart? I see life and what's happening to me. Along the trail there are expectations, disappointments, happiness, questions and strong relationships," Plant explains, "... and now I'm able to express my feelings through melody, power and trance; together in a kaleidoscope of sound, colour, and friendship."

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

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

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

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

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

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

Booker T. & The MGs/In the Christmas Spirit [Original Recording Master/Limited Edition] ....CD $16.99

Booker T. & The MG's delivered one of the coolest yuletide albums of the sixties with their soulful In the Christmas Spirit. This 1966 classic featured the legendary quartet of Booker T. Jones on organ, Steve Cropper on guitar and bass and the late greats Donald "Duck" Dunn on bass and claves and Al Jackson on drums and assorted percussion.  Featuring both standards and spiritual classics, In the Christmas Spirit has something nice for everybody. Check out their clever interpretation of Jingle Bells. Not only do these gentlemen kick things off with the funkiest groove this side of the North Pole, they also scored a gift for themselves with a holiday hit single. Dig further into this Christmas program and you will find more holiday favorites like Winter Wonderland, a stunning reading of Mel Torme's The Christmas Song and the stellar Irving Berlin champion White Christmas.  If you are seeking the true meaning of Christmas, it is found within the beautiful Booker T. & The MG's renditions of Sweet Little Jesus Boy, the solemn Silent Night, and the heartfelt We Three Kings Of Orient Are. All truly defining moments of this wonderful holiday treasure. Friday Music is no stranger to the hit sounds of Booker T. & The MG's. Therefore, it is with much pleasure to offer the wonderful In The Christmas Spirit for the first time on compact disc in quite some time. Impeccably mastered from the original Stax/Atlantic Records tapes by Joe Reagoso (Booker T. & The MG'S/Aretha Franklin/Wilson Pickett), we feel this limited edition compact disc will become one of those favorites holiday albums you can play 365 days a year.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Groovicity/Groovicity ....import CD $26.99

Groovicity/Groovicity ....import CD $26.99

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

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

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

The first, in April 1998, was at the Leverkusen Bluesfest, with a band comprising Neil Larsen on keyboards plus Blue Line stalwarts Roscoe Beck on bass and Tom Brechtlein on drums.  Highlights include 'The Brother,' the impressive opening cut from the Blue Line's 1992 debut recording that was inspired by the late Stevie Ray Vaughan, while The first three numbers played, Paul Butterfield's 'Lovin' Cup,' Charlie Singleton's 'Help The Poor' and the Duke Ellington-penned 'You Ain't Nothin' But The Blues,' were all performed acoustically. The second, in Leverkusen in 2007, saw him backed by Travis Carlton on bass (guitar legend Larry Carlton's son) and Toss Panos on drums. They each feature on the extended 'The Way You Treated Me'. Highlights of the TV performance include the title track of the 1999 album 'Supernatural,' and a tribute to BB King in 'Riley B. King,' written with Keb Mo. This and other highlights 'How Deep in the Blues (Do You Want To Go),' 'Lateral Climb,' 'Too Much' and 'Peace On My Mind' come from his concurrent Grammy-nominated album 'Truth' (2007). Robben Ford is, without doubt, one of the guitar greats, and this spot-on performance will delight all fans of well-crafted and highly refined guitar playing.   Expertly restored and remastered. Superb vision, outstanding sound. The best in the business!

OFFERING: LIVE AT TEMPLE UNIVERSITY documents a legendary concert by John Coltrane at Temple University in his hometown, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, on November 11, 1966, six weeks after his 40th birthday and nine months before his untimely death. OFFERING incorporates a look that is contiguous with the graphic identity of Impulse! Records, Coltrane s exclusive label from 1961 until the end of his life. This is the first officially sanctioned release of an undiscovered, complete Coltrane performance since 2005. It captures Coltrane in exemplary form, navigating the language he had developed during the last phase of his musical path with passion and pellucid logic. Operating at equivalent levels of invention and energy are three members of his working quintet of one year's standing his wife, Alice Coltrane, on piano; Pharoah Sanders on reeds and flute; and Rashied Ali on drums.

John Foxx - B-Movie: Ballardian Video Neuronica $20.98
2014 instrumental album from the Electronic Music pioneer. B-MOVIE: BALLARDIAN VIDEO NEURONICA was recorded and assembled for a cut-up/collage movie by Foxx and visual artist Karborn, inspired by the themes, influence and text of British writer J G Ballard. The album features two collaborations - 'Geometry, Collision And Coincidence' with Benge from John Foxx And The Maths, and 'Disaster Series', which was co-written with Steve D'Agostino. All the music is exclusive to this soundtrack except 'The Other Side', an extract from the forthcoming album due for release in 2015, which just happened to fit with the visuals. The soundtrack runs as a continuous piece of music in the first part of B-MOVIE including effects and links that relate to the film. The second half of the album features all the individual tracks plus 'Dashboard Melt' which Foxx recorded for the project but in the end didn't use. Jonathan Barnbrook's stunning artwork for the album features new, Ballard-inspired images created by Karborn.

John Foxx - Evidence of Time Travel $20.98
2014 release from the Electronic music pioneer. EVIDENCE OF TIME TRAVEL is a unique investigation of the terrors and pleasures of temporal displacement. A sinister sonic architecture of drum-machine-music and analogue synthesizers. Opens with 'The Forbidden Experiment', as surveillance TV glitches and the ghostly, ripped-up multi-temporal universe of Evidence of Time Travel infiltrates the labyrinth of dark electronica. Span 40 years in a moment...ultimate time transfusion...skin crackles, a rhapsody in flames...witness images of torn, ruthless smiles through the crashed distortion; try to recall the future memory of a figure lost on a distant shore.

Long out of print on vinyl this is the first CD release of the much sought after album.

George Harrison - All Things Must Pass $24.98
All Things Must Pass was released by Apple Records in November 1970. Co-produced by Harrison and Phil Spector, many musicians contributed to the album, including Eric Clapton, Ringo Starr, Billy Preston, Pete Drake, Gary Wright, Klaus Voormann, members of Badfinger, players from Delaney and Bonnie band, and John Barham. The triple-LP topped charts around the world and earned universal acclaim as a rock masterpiece. George became the first Beatle to have a solo number one single in both the UK and America with the album's lead single, My Sweet Lord, which introduced his signature slide guitar playing. George co-wrote the album's opening track, 'I'd Have You Anytime' with his friend Bob Dylan, who also wrote another song on the landmark album, 'If Not For You.' The new package includes the five additional tracks added to the album's 2001 reissue: 'I Live For You' (outtake), 'Beware Of Darkness' (demo), 'Let It Down' (alternative version), 'What Is Life' (backing track), and 'My Sweet Lord (2000).'

George Harrison - Dark Horse $14.98

George Harrison - Electronic Sound $14.98
As a direct result of The Beatles' keen curiosity about experimental music and other avant-garde artistic expression, Apple Records launched its short-lived Zapple subsidiary in February 1969 as a forum for unfettered sonic exploration, or, as announced at the time, 'more freaky sounds.' George's Electronic Sound and John Lennon and Yoko Ono's Unfinished Music No. 2: Life With The Lions, both released in May 1969, were Zapple's only releases before it was closed down. Electronic Sound's cover art, painted by George, depicts his Moog IIIP (which was later used on four tracks by The Beatles on their album Abbey Road) with the four modules from which the sound was synthesized. Each side of the Electronic Sound LP featured one exploratory long-form work. However, the American version of the album placed the pieces on opposite sides to the UK record, but with the same titles retained on the labels. Consequently, there has been confusion about which track is which. Research for the out-of-print album's new release revealed that the UK LP was correct with 'Under The Mersey Wall' on Side 1 and 'No Time Or Space' on Side 2. The CD booklet includes new essays by The Chemical Brothers' Tom Rowlands and Dhani Harrison, as well as newly written historical notes by Kevin Howlett.

George Harrison - Extra Texture $14.98
In late 1974, George returned to California to record his next album, the soul-tinged Extra Texture (Read All About It), his final album to be released through Apple Records. Leon Russell played piano on 'Tired Of Midnight Blue,' and for some of the sessions, Harrison was joined by guitarist Jesse Ed Davis, plus Jim Keltner, Paul Stallworth, and David Foster from new band Attitudes, who were later signed by George's newly formed Dark Horse label. Two of the LP's songs date from 1974 sessions for Dark Horse at George's home studio: the soulful love song 'Can't Stop Thinking About You' and the backing track of 'His Name Is 'Legs (Ladies & Gentlemen).' The new release adds 'This Guitar (Can't Keep From Crying),' a song Harrison rerecorded in 1992 as a demo for Dave Stewart, who plays electric guitar on it. More than ten years later, the track received overdubs by Ringo Starr on drums, Dhani Harrison on guitar, and vocalist Kara DioGuardi. The CD booklet includes newly written historical notes by Kevin Howlett.

George Harrison - Living in the Material World $14.98
In May 1973 came the release of George's second studio album of new songs, Living In The Material World. He was joined in the studio by several musician friends who had also played on All Things Must Pass and others like Jim Keltner, with whom he had worked during The Concert for Bangladesh concerts in 1971. The album and its lead single, 'Give Me Love (Give Me Peace On Earth)' both reached number one in America and on charts around the world. The spiritual nature of Living In The Material World, described by Rolling Stone as 'miraculous in its radiance,' is also reflected in the inclusion of an illustration from the Bhagavad-Gita in the artwork. The new release adds a remix of the single version of 'Bangla Desh,' which has previously been available only on The Best Of George Harrison (1976), as well as two B-sides included on the album's 2006 reissue, 'Deep Blue' and 'Miss O'Dell.'

George Harrison - Wonderwall Music $14.98
Released in November 1968, George Harrison's Wonderwall Music was the first solo album released by a member of The Beatles and the first LP to be released by Apple Records. The soundtrack music for director Joe Massot's debut feature-length film, Wonderwall, the predominantly instrumental album is an intricate, vibrant tapestry of Western rock music and compositions in an Indian classical style. In 1992, George recalled, 'I decided to do it as a mini-anthology of Indian music, because I wanted to help turn the public on to Indian music.' Three bonus tracks have been added to the remastered album: 'In The First Place' by Liverpool group The Remo Four, who played the rock elements of the recording sessions, a previously unreleased alternate take of 'The Inner Light,' and the previously unreleased 'Almost Shankara,' a raga that was not used in the film or for the soundtrack LP. The booklet also includes a new essay of appreciation by the acclaimed musician, producer and composer Nitin Sawney and newly written historical notes by Kevin Howlett.

Magma - Riah Sahiltaahk $15.98
The original version of Riah Sahiltaahk that was recorded in 1971 is featured on the album 1001 Degrees Centigrade (vol. 2). But at the time, its composer, Christian Vander,was unhappy with the arrangement written by the group. This radically new version, adapted to suit the group's current line-up, is more faithful to the spirit of Magma's music and its uniquely weird and wonderful prog-rock style.

Primus - Primus & the Chocolate Factory with the Fungi Ense $13.98
The definitive Primus line-up Les Claypool, guitarist Larry LaLonde, and drummer Tim Alexander - is back together and set to release their first full-length studio set in nearly 20 years, 'Primus & the Chocolate Factory, due out on ATO Records on October 21. "The idea was to combine the Frog Brigade and Primus, and do this record, says Claypool. I think like a good portion of the planet, we were all pretty put off by the remake of the 'Willy Wonka' movie - the Tim Burton version. I really wanted to pay homage to a film [1971's 'Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory,' starring Gene Wilder] that was very important to me as a kid and very influential to me musically. So that's what we did. And as opposed to just going in and recording the songs and playing them the way they are in the film, we twisted them up a bit...twisted them up a lot." The recording is about my early perception of the original Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory film, says Claypool. The notion wasn t so much to go in and redo the soundtrack note for note as much as it was to utilize the classic elements of the music yet try to reflect some of the darker undertones of the Roald Dahl books, because when you read those books, there is an eerie and somewhat menacing aspect implied.

The Residents - 12 Days of Brumalia $13.98
Brumalia was a month-long party the ancient Romans threw at the end of the year. It was a kind of New Years Eve that didn't stop at midnight. Instead, it stopped on December 25th. This went on until 600-700 c.e., it's hard to know exactly. The Catholic church had set up a date they liked for the observance of the birth of Jesus. That date was January 6th. The problem was that the Brumalia party folks cast a bit of a pall over the approaching birthday of Jesus, as it occurred just a few days earlier. The Catholic solution was to move Jesus' birthday to December 25th, and pretend that everyone was celebrating Jesus rather than what they were actually celebrating. Fine, but they had to deal with the fact that January 6th was already set up as the correct date. Therefore, they invented the 12 Days of Christmas that lead up to January 6th. The explanation was something like, Jesus was born on December 25th but it wasn't until January 6th that people realized maybe he was more than just another human. So both dates became kind of an event. Okay, so the Residents made an online party and called it the 12 Days of Brumalia, a thin joke stealing the Christian ""12 days"" back for the Pagans. Settling the score, if anyone had noticed or cared. So, every day for 12 days starting December 25th, The Residents gave away a song on the internet. You also get an Epiphany tune, which is the one for January 6th celebrating Jesus being a god and not a human. You also get a single version of one of the Brumalia songs pumped up for radio. As if that isn't enough, you also get ""Prelude to the Teds."" The Residents were working on a story about two guys named Ted who were very dependent on each other. I mean, really dependent. They never finished the project but they did release these four songs through the They Might Be Giants HELLO record club. All in all, you get 18 tunes recorded between 1993 and 2003.

David Sylvian & Robert Fripp - Damage $15.98
CD reissue of this classic live recording, a collaboration between vocalist David Sylvian (Japan) and guitarist Robert Fripp (King Crimson). .With a well-received studio album in the form of THE FIRST DAY issued in summer 1993, Sylvian/Fripp took to the road for a lengthy tour to support the release. Trey Gunn reprised his role from the earlier tour and studio recordings as stick player, while Pat Mastelotto joined the group on drums, a position which led to his being offered a role in the 1990s King Crimson, a band in which he has remained a member of every line-up since. Producer and recordings artist Michael Brook completed the touring ensemble. DAMAGE was recorded at the final London concerts in December 1993 and issued in 1994. Whereas the studio album had a measured grace and power, the live album was even more muscular on the Rock pieces, drawing some extraordinary performances from all contributors. This made the contrast with the quieter, more ambient material even more pronounced, with audiences able to hear every nuance of the material. (NOTE: This reissue contains the 2001 remix of the album and not the original 1994 mix).

David Sylvian & Robert Fripp - First Day $15.98
CD reissue of this 1993 collaboration between vocalist David Sylvian (Japan) and guitarist Robert Fripp (King Crimson). Fripp guested on David Sylvian's 1986 album GONE TO EARTH. Sylvian/Fripp evolved as an extension of that collaboration, initially with gigs as a trio with future King Crimson member Trey Gunn on stick, followed by a full length studio album with the addition of Jerry Marotta on drums, Marc Anderson on percussion and vocalist Ingrid Chavez. The album was recorded by David Bottrill in Woodstock NY and New Orleans. Experimental yet accessible, song driven yet leaving ample room for instrumental exploration, THE FIRST DAY is a great advert for such occasional meetings insofar as it manages to showcase the individual strengths of both artists while drawing something new and unexpected from their joint work. As such it is one of the best remembered of the many collaborative recordings by both artists.

Oboes, woodwinds, mellotrons and Rickenbackers are just some of the instruments creating a pastoral, almost neo-classical sound melded with heavier, more gothic moments. A Scandinavian rock classic.

JANE 12-21 is the companion to JANE 1-11. Minimal, modern classical piano and avant-garde electronics by the master. "It's simple. I broke out and broke back to my earlier days: A triangle of risk, improvisation and joy -- as I say, very simple. My rules to myself were: No plan, no notes, no ideas, no microphones; except for Jane 1 I stuck to it. My other rule -- the most important one -- was: At least one piece per day, finished, mixed and not to be revisited again. Jane 7, 8, 9 were done in one day... Brad Ellis was my guide through this: An untiring day, ready to go again... To quote a letter to me from Mark Tobey: ... "It fell off the edge of my brush."" -- Harold Budd

The Byrds - Straight for the Sun $14.98
For this 1971 radio broadcast of a concert at the McDonough Gym at American University in Washington DC, the Byrds (McGuinn/White/Battin/Parsons line-up) chose to perform an eclectic cross-section of material, drawing from albums across their career to date. From those recorded by the same line-up come the dynamic Lover of the Bayou and McGuinn's perennial ballad Chestnut Mare, I Want To Grow Up To Be A Politician, Citizen Kane and Tiffany Queen. Delving way back into their illustrious history, the band draw on a slew of Sixties classics including their hit version of Dylan's Mr. Tambourine Man (from the eponymous 1965 debut album), Mr. Spaceman and Eight Miles High and So You Want To Be A Rock n Roll Star. Gram Parsons brief sojourn with The Byrds is recalled via a version of Pretty Boy Floyd (from Sweetheart of the Rodeo 1968). The subsequent Dr. Byrds and Mr. Hyde (1969) is represented by the sparkling instrumental Nashville West whilst 1969s Ballad of Easy Rider album contributes Jesus Is Just Alright. Finally, there are versions of the traditional Black Mountain Rag (Soldier's Joy) and set-closer, Chuck Berry's rocking Roll Over Beethoven. In short, a superb aural snapshot of a band at an undoubted peak in an unusually tumultuous career.

The Byrds - Younger Than Yesterday $18.98
Digitally remastered edition of this 1967 album from the Folk/Rock legends housed in a miniature LP sleeve. YOUNGER THAN YESTERDAY was the fourth album by The Byrds and was released on February 6, 1967.

John Cale - Academy in Peril $18.98
Digitally remastered edition of this 1972 album housed in a miniature LP sleeve. Like his previous release, the Terry Riley collaboration, CHURCH OF ANTHRAX, it is mostly instrumental. As the title suggests, the album was inspired by Cale's classical training. The cover concept and art was designed by Andy Warhol.

Captain Beefheart - Full Moon in Cowtown $15.98
There are very few truly iconoclastic figures in the history of popular music since the mid 20th century, but Don Van Vliet (1941-2010), aka Captain Beefheart, is certainly one of them. Although initially perceived as a purveyor of grizzly electric R'n'B, from the outset the Captain routinely distinguished his compositions with surreal lyrics and unusual time signatures. In 1969 the Captain presented the world with his third record, the outstandingly arcane masterpiece, 'Trout Mask Replica'. Amalgamating a breathtaking diversity of sounds incorporating blues, free jazz and the avant-garde, this seminal work remains one of 'pop' music's most aurally challenging listening experiences! Although never a huge commercial success, it was a massively inspirational work. By the time of this April 1974 broadcast, Captain Beefheart - and the 29th incarnation in a long line of ever-mutating Magic Bands - had reverted to more traditionally-structured compositions. The touring band included some highly revered players including reedsman Del Simmons, guitarists Dean Smith and Fuzzy Fuscaldo, bassist Paul Uhrig, and drummer Ty Grimes. Caught live in Kansas City, Beefheart was amidst an extensive US tour promoting his eighth album, 'Unconditionally Guaranteed'. The album does indeed feature some of Beefheart's most overtly commercial songs - including Upon The My-O-My and This Is The Day. Many of the album's lyrics were declarations of love in honour of Don's wife - and by now co-composer - Jan Van Vliet. The often truculent Beefheart is in an unusually upbeat mood throughout and even plays Peaches - another cut drawn from 'Unconditionally...' - twice. Also included in the set are a version of the 1925 jazz standard Sweet Georgia Brown and Blues workouts Be Your Dog and Keep On Rubbing - the latter based in part on Lightnin' Slim's 1957 recording, Mighty Crazy. Delving into his own back-catalogue Beefheart also essays versions of Abba Zaba, Mirror Man, and Crazy Little Thing.

Trilok Gurtu - Crazy Saints & Believe $18.98
2 CD Set. When ""Crazy Saints"" was released, he announced ""'No more east or west!' Loathe when exotic spices suppliers take over the growing musical ethno-supermarket. Indian culture as sounding curry? No thanks. ""Crazy Saints"" once again presented his mother, who was a well-known singer in India. Pat Metheny, Joe Zawinul as well as two world-renowned Jazz names also appeared on the album, undoubtedly attracting additional attention. It was key that he had found a like-minded aesthetic in a musician such as Zawinul. ""Crazy Saints"" and ""Believe"" document a changing period, in which Gurtu newly orientated himself. The bonus tracks (a live recording from Radio Bremen, recorded between both studio productions) particularly prove, that jazz during this particular time was still a crucial component of his music. This changed in the time that followed. He feels the often testified sincerity of jazz as the opposite, as constricting. Two original albums by Trilok Gurtu kicking off the new series Collectors Premium Jazz"" Digitally remastered 2 CD Deluxe Edition Digipak with new liner notes Included bonus tracks

Rick Wakeman - Rick Wakeman's Criminal Record $14.98
Rick Wakeman was always something of a maverick within the proggy confines of Yes, so it’s no surprise that for his sixth solo release - recorded right after he rejoined Yes in 1977, he turned to the transgressive subjects of crime, punishment and villainy. And he got his just desserts - CRIMINAL RECORD hit the charts in both the U.S. and U.K., where it went Top 30, and remains a favorite among his fanbase. Both Alan White and Chris Squire play on the record, which features the same church organ from St. Martin’s church in Vevey, Switzerland used on the Yes album GOING FOR THE ONE to great effect. Oddly, this standout record from Wakeman’s catalog has only been available domestically on a limited-edition, long out-of-print CD. This reissue adds notes by Bill Kopp and includes the text from the inner sleeve, which sets the stage for each song with scholarly notes on such charming subjects as the guillotine.

Bowie, David - Becoming Bowie DVD $23.98
When, in 1969, David Bowie had his first UK hit with 'Space Oddity', at the time it was largely viewed as a moon-landing novelty record and so it didn't take long for the populace at large to forget all about this ""one-hit-wonder"" when the event it was allegedly released to ""cash-in"" on had been and gone. But when, a few years hence, this same performer appeared on prime time television looking like something that might have hijacked the very spaceship he had sung about almost three years before, the hipper viewers sat up and took notice. And those with an enquiring mind would have discovered that David Bowie had been making records since 1964, had already been in more groups and had more images than just about any other performer since the dawn of rock, and following his debut hit, had released three quite remarkable albums. This 2 DVD set tells the complete, incredible story of the making of David Bowie. From his very first recordings made under his real name of David Jones (with his group of the time, The King Bees) up to the release of his enormously influential breakthrough record Ziggy Stardust and The Spiders From Mars, the entire build-up to Bowie's enormous success is here dissected. Disc one features a 90 minute documentary film which investigates the period in question and features archive footage, contributions from those who worked alongside Bowie through this era plus exclusive interviews, news clips and much more. Disc two features filmed interviews with David recorded at different stages of his career, during which the man himself relays this exciting time from his own perspective. Finished in deluxe 6-panel digi-packaging, this double disc set is destined to become the standard work on this defining period in David Bowie's long and illustrious career.

Hi, all!

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

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

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

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

Banda Sinfonica Jovem do Estado de S o Paulo - 1984/ Out There CD $24.95

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

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

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

Bevis Frond - Miasma CD $26.95
The long out of print debut album by The Bevis Frond from 1987 featuring seven additional tracks. Acclaimed in Rolling Stone by David Fricke as "a Hendrix devotee every bit as tough and contemporary as the serrated guitar chorales of Sonic Youth and Pixies."Covered by Teenage Fanclub and Dinosaur Jr among many others, this is a psychedelic pop masterpiece with gorgeous pop overtones. The first of a lengthy re-issue campaign also available on CD/LP with different bonus tracks.Featuring three never before released tracks. Issued in its original sleeve

Big Country - Steeltown CD $32.95
Digitally remastered and expanded two CD edition of the 1984 sophomore album by the Scottish quartet, issued to coincide with the 30th anniversary of its original release. STEELTOWN was recorded at ABBA's Polar Studios in Stockholm with Steve Lillywhite producing. It was the band's only UK #1 album, topping the chart for one week in October 1984. This expanded edition features the original album on Disc One and 17 additional tracks on Disc Two including non-album tracks, radio edits, demos and rough mixes.

Joe Bonamassa - Different Shades of Blue CD $35.95
Digipak pressing. GRAMMY-nominated guitar superstar Joe Bonamassa releases his first studio album since 2012 and the first album of his career to feature all original material. The result is a record with more of an experimental edge than previous Bonamassa records. It’s a blues record that explores the outer reaches and the many different sounds that shape the genre.

Canned Heat - Live in Europe 1973 CD $22.95
Canned Heat were one of the hardest living and hardest working bands of the late sixties and seventies. Led by the inimitable Bob ‘The Bear’ Hite, a huge man with a personality to match, their formidable performances established them as one of the greatest white blues bands of all time. This set from the 1973 Montreux Jazz Festival, their only appearance at the esteemed festival, captures them at their peak, and features a guest appearance from the engaging Clarence ‘Gatemouth’ Brown on four tracks. Includes spirited renditions of two of their best known numbers, ’On The Road Again’ and ’Let’s Work Together’, and 8 more hard driving songs. 8 page booklet features liner notes by Michael Heatley (John Peel: A Life In Music, Neil Young In His Own Words).

Michael Chapman - Live at Folk Cotttage Cornwall1967 CD $31.95
2014 album of the 1967 first known recordings by British folk guitar hero Michael Chapman. Previously unreleased, these are the earliest known recordings of this great British guitar hero, or as Michael Chapman calls it "The album I had no idea I had made!" . The TreeHouse44 label has worked closely with Michael Chapman, being allowed full access to his private archive, to produce a unique album that captures the earliest stages in the career of this phenomenal artist. Recorded by Folk Cottage regulars Lionel Rigby and Dave James using an AKG D119 microphone hung over a rafter and hooked up to a Ferrograph 5AN open reel tape machine, these recordings capture the essence of a live show at a pivotal time in the chronology of Michael's career, barely 8 months since he "turned pro" and within two years of the release of "Rainmaker", his debut album on Harvest/EMI.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Weather Report - Forecast: Tomorrow CD $46.95

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

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

J.J. Cale - Number 10 CD $20.95
CD reissue of this 1992 album from the late, great Blues/Americana singer/songwriter. As the title suggests, this was Cale's 10th studio album overall. Originally released on the Silvertone Records label, the album features musical assistance from Spooner Oldham, Tim Drummond, Bill Boatman, Christine Lakeland, Nick Rather and Jimmy Karstein. Cale was one of the originators of the Tulsa Sound, a loose genre drawing on Blues, Rockabilly, Country, and Jazz influences. Cale's personal style has often been described as "laid back".

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

EU-only two CD set. This release contains all existing collaborative recordings by Thelonious Monk and Sonny Rollins.

Rollins and Monk’s conjunct works consist of two 1953/54 studio dates for Prestige, the amazing 1956 LP BRILLIANT CORNERS, and two songs from a 1957 Rollins session for Blue Note. As a bonus we have added all of the other tunes from the 1957 Blue Note date (with Horace Silver on piano replacing Monk), and two further interpretations of Monk’s compositions by Rollins: a wonderful 1956 live reading of '’Round Midnight' with the saxophonist sharing solo space with Clifford Brown, and a 1949 studio recording of '52nd Street Theme', featuring Rollins with Fats Navarro and Bud Powell.

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

Thompson was named by Rolling Stone Magazine's as one of the Top 20 Guitarists of all time and considered one of the UK's most outstanding songwriters and musicians. The recipient of a BBC Lifetime Achievement Award, Mojo's Les Paul Award and curator of the prestigious Meltdown Festival at the Southbank in 2010, Thompson was most recently honored with a Lifetime Achievement Award for Songwriting by the Americana Music Association.

2014 release, the 26th album in the long and illustrious career of Loudon Wainwright III.

Producing HGTB(Y) was Wainwright's long time musical collaborator David Mansfield, who has backed him on numerous previous recordings as instrumentalist/arranger. Other top players grace HGTB(Y), and include ace banjoist Tony Trischka, saxophonist Steve Elson, drummer Sammy Merendino, bassist Tim Luntzel, and another longtime musical cohort, Chaim Tannenbaum, on background vocals.

Gary Windo - Deep Water/ Dogface CD $31.95
Digitally remastered two CD set containing a pair of albums from the late Jazz tenor saxophonist: DEEP WATER and DOGFACE.

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