Released to coincide with the 46th anniversary of King Crimson's formation in January 1969, Live at the Orpheum comprises performances from the band's critically acclaimed, sold-out 2014 US tour.  Forty one minutes of live material from the new seven piece King Crimson line-up, including classics such as Starless, Sailor's Tale and The Letters.   King Crimson has performed, recorded and released material in its own inimitable manner for the past 46 years. As the band enters its 47th year of operation in 2015, the occasion is marked with the first release culled from the band's autumn 2014 US tour.   Comprised of 41 minutes of material by the newest incarnation of the band fronted by the line-up's formidable three drummer setup, Live at the Orpheum has been mixed from 24bit multi-track performances recorded at the band's two concerts at the Los Angeles venue. Featuring a mixture of new and old King Crimson material - some being performed live for the first time - the album makes an ideal recorded debut for the septet.   For those who travelled from all over the world to see the US shows, it's an opportunity to relive the power, precision and sheer musicality of the concerts. For those who couldn't attend but wanted to, it's an opportunity to hear why the concerts generated such excitement.  Tracks:  Walk On: Monk Morph Chamber Music; One More Red Nightmare; Banshee Legs Bell Hassle; The ConstruKction of Light; The Letters; Sailor's Tale; Starless.

Only Two Copies Left!!!

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

- 19 CDs of live performance material including: 7 CDs taken from multi-track tape including 4CDs of material from the Glasgow & Zurich shows, freshly assembled & mastered in Hi-Res from the original Great Deceiver mixes by David Singleton at DGM Soundworld in 2014, the Amsterdam show The Nightwatch mixed by Steven Wilson & a previously unheard preparatory of material from the same show prepared by George Chkiantz (engineer of all live KC shows of the era & the Red album).  11 CDs drawn from high quality stereo reel to reel soundboard tapes. 8 making their first appearance on CD with the remaining three re-mastered or drawn from new tape sources.  1 CD presenting the performance from the ORTF Paris TV broadcast.

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

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

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

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

Steve Hillage's live set at the Gong Family Unconvention in November 2006 provoked a rush of excitement and emotion at the event and was captured beautifully on audio and video.  Performing with Steve were his long-time musical partner Miquette Giraudy on synthesisers, and Gong members Mike Howlett and Chris Taylor.

Brian Eno/Nerve Net ....double CD $18.98

Brian Eno/Nerve Net ....double CD $18.98

Deluxe double CD reissue of Eno's eclectic release from 1992.  Featuring a mixture of vocal and instrumental excursions, Nerve Net found Eno returning to a more rock-oriented sound, albeit skewed through an aesthetic that was simultaneously playful, funky and claustrophobic. Includes contributions from Robert Fripp, Robert Quine and John Paul Jones.  The second disc includes the first ever commercial release of legendary lost album My Squelchy Life, which was originally scheduled for release in September 1991 but withdrawn at the last moment.  Contains 16 page booklet compiling photos, images and writing by Eno.

Brian Eno/The Shutov Assembly ....double CD $18.98

Brian Eno/The Shutov Assembly ....double CD $18.98

Deluxe double CD reissue of Eno's atmospheric Ambient album from 1992.  Dedicated to Russian artist and friend Sergei Shutov, the album is a continuation of the work found on records such as On Land and Thursday Afternoon. Eno had discovered that Shutov often painted to his music but was unable to obtain many of his records in then-communist Russia. He resolved to collate a tape of previously unreleased material (recorded between 1985 and 1990) to give to Shutov and upon listening himself discovered a previously unnoticed thread that ran through the pieces, creating an unintentional full length work. Each piece is named after and derived from one of Eno's audio-visual installations.   The second disc includes 7 completely unreleased recordings from Brian Eno archives taken from the same period as The Shutov Assembly.  Contains 16 page booklet compiling photos, images and writing by Eno.

Brian Eno/Neroli ....double CD $18.98

Brian Eno/Neroli ....double CD $18.98

Deluxe double CD reissue of Brian Eno's critically acclaimed 1993 single-track Ambient album.  Named after the precious sensual oil derived from the flowers of the Seville orange, Neroli is more than any other Eno work intrinsically linked with the idea of perfume and fragrance. The piece is formed from a single Phrygian mode melody which Eno constructs and deconstructs throughout the work with the subtle flair that has become his trademark. A piece of pure atmosphere that is considered by many to be the ultimate realisation of Eno's 'mood music,' Neroli has been played in maternity wards for its soothing effect and organic, natural feel.  Includes a previously unreleased 1992 Eno work - clocking in at just over an hour - New Space Music (a fine example of Eno's inimitable long-form drone music and a satisfying companion piece to Neroli).   Contains 16 page booklet compiling photos, images and writing by Eno.

Brian Eno/The Drop ....double CD $18.98

Brian Eno/The Drop ....double CD $18.98

Deluxe double CD reissue of Eno's underrated 'Space Jazz' album from 1997.  The Drop was intended not only as a new area for his sonic explorations but as an entirely new style of 'Drop' music.  Described by Eno as an interpretation of jazz from an alien perspective, The Drop also integrates Eno's interests in the melodic yet percussive basslines of Fela Kuti and the labyrinthine melodies of The Mahavishnu Orchestra.   The second disc includes 9 rarely heard bonus tracks from the same period as The Drop, previously only available as limited edition of 1000 sold at an exhibition of Brian Eno's 77 Million Paintings at La Floret in Japan in 2006, the original issue of which has since become a collector's item amongst Eno fans.  Contains 16 page booklet compiling photos, images and writing by Eno.

Dave Bainbridge/Celestial Fire ....import CD $29.99

Dave Bainbridge/Celestial Fire ....import CD $29.99

Celestial Fire is the second album by Iona's Dave Bainbridge.  A follow-up to the acclaimed Veil of Gossamer, Celestial Fire is an album Bainbridge has always wanted to make.  As Dave says, "It's an album which really draws upon the excitement and exhilaration I first felt, listening to many of my early musical heros (Yes, Gentle Giant, The Mahavishnu Orchestra, Curved Air, Hatfield and The North, Clannad, Mike Oldfield, The Enid, Keith Emerson, Allan Holdsworth, Alan Stivell, Ralph Vaughan-Williams to name but a few!). It was listening to all these great musicians and composers that first inspired me to become a musician and composer."  Merging the Celtic influenced soundscapes of Iona with an even more ambitious progressive rock style of hard-hitting invention, Celestial Fire is a beautifully played combination of new and classic sound combinations featuring evolving compositions with plenty of room for improvisation.  Includes performances from Troy Donockley, Damian Wilson, Joanne Hogg (Iona) and others.

Dave Bainbridge & David Fitzgerald/Life Journey ....import CD $27.99

Dave Bainbridge & David Fitzgerald/Life Journey ....import CD $27.99

Iona's co-founders reunited in 2009 to create an inspirational soundtrack to Mary Fleeson's book, Life Journey.  Dave Bainbridge offers, "In many ways this felt like we were returning to the source of the inspiration that birthed Iona the band.   Iona was born out of David and I improvising together during soundchecks on Adrian Snell gigs back at the end of the 1980's and David's mystical experience of God's powerful Presence one dark night on the Island of Lindisfarne. This book was also birthed by Mary on Lindisfarne and much of its imagery is inspired by that amazing place. At certain points during the album you can hear sounds that Mary's husband Mark recorded on the island - the St Mary's church bell, the sea lapping on nearby St Cuthbert's Isle, the sound of the seabirds."

Francis Dunnery's 2001 release, Man, is seen as the most personal work of his fascinating career, with Francis describing the album as, "A collection of songs I wrote during a turbulent period of my life."  Despite its dark subject matter, Man has proved to be one of Dunnery's most successful albums and has dictated much of his subsequent musical path.  Very different from his work with It Bites and Robert Plant, the album blends acoustic instruments (guitars, cellos) with strong melodic vocals and subtle electronic additions.  A collection of accessible and superbly played singer-songwriter reflections on youth, nostalgia and ageing.

Rhys Marsh/Sentiment ....import CD $28.99

The debut solo album of Rhys Marsh, the voice of The Autumn Ghost & Kaukasus.   A dense album, awash with thick atmospheres and intense dynamics, both musically and lyrically, Sentiment is the most personal statement of Marsh's career to date.   Following the success of Kaukasus' debut album, Marsh has sustained a similar mood to the band's while bringing its dark atmospheres into a more song-based setting - combining a comparable intensity with more conventional structures, leading to captivating and unexpected results.  The album was written, performed and recorded by Marsh over a two year period, in his own Autumnsongs Recording Studio.  Sentiment features the singles The Seventh Face and Last November.  "Multi-instrumentalist invokes Scandinavian melancholy and the spirit of the 70s."- Prog Magazine.

Martin Barre/Order of Play ....import CD $29.95

A live in the studio recording of the Martin Barre Band's current show, featuring several Jethro Tull classics, including Thick As a Brick (excerpt) and Minstrel in the Gallery.  'In January 2013, we headlined a festival in Somerset, UK. We wanted a live CD to be a summary of the last two years of our work. The fans had kept asking for a CD version of the show and this was the ideal opportunity, with the band in one place, and a couple of days off.  The festival was a great success and after a very late night, we met at Middle Farm Studio, about 50 miles away, the next morning. We set the back-line up, as we do onstage, with Dan in a booth, as he, rightly, felt that it was important to record all his vocals live. Every track was one take, except for Still Loving You Tonight. Dan and I did two versions, but used the first one anyway! It was really important to keep the feel and continuity the same as a live gig. By the end of the day, we had all the songs finished.' - Martin Barre.  Tracks:  New Day Yesterday, Fatman, Watch Your Step, Crossroads, Minstrel in the Gallery, To Cry You a Song, Steal Your Heart Away, Thick As a Brick (excerpt), Sweet Dream, Song for Jeffrey, Rock Me Baby, Teacher, Still Loving You Tonight, Locomotive Breath.  Credits:  Martin Barre - guitar, mandolin; Dan Crisp - vocals, guitar; Alan Bray - bass; George Lindsay - drums; Richard Beesley - saxophones / clarinet

Burnt Belief (Colin Edwin & Jon Durant)/Etymology ....import CD $27.99

Bassist Colin Edwin and guitarist Jon Durant return under their Burnt Belief moniker to release a new album of progressive ethno-ambient fusion instrumentals.  Whilst still retaining the strong sonic identity laid down on predecessor Burnt Belief, Etymology represents an expansion and natural evolution of the duo's sound, partly due to the input of three highly accomplished drummers (Vinny Sabatino, Dean McCormick and Jose Duque) who complement and reinforce the existing programmed electronic rhythms.  Etymology is further enriched by some sensitive, electric violin performances from highly regarded classical musician Steve Bingham (also known for his evocative work with No-Man).

In this second collection, the Regal Worm has created a monumental quintych as two eighteen minute-plus guardians bookend a trio of short unruly children (to prevent them from escaping and setting fire to things).  Birthed once again in Pig View studio (a vintage equipment-crammed garret of wonder); aided by choicest heavy friends, the new album knits dark, playful lyricism with rhythmic, angular, multi-layered PROG sound buds. Indeed, a distillation of the highly detailed, anarchic and lysergic tingle of 'Use and Ornament,' the critically acclaimed debut from last year.  All tracks written, performed, recorded and produced by Jarrod Gosling.  Personnel:  Jarrod Gosling: Mellotron M400, RMI 368 electra piano, Octave Kitten, Minimax ASB, ARP 2600, Hammond L122, Hammond T500, Fender Rhodes piano, Philips Philicorda AG-755 organ, Korg MS20, EDP Wasp Deluxe, Kawai S100, piano, bass guitar, voice, 6 and 12 string electric guitars, acoustic guitar, glockenspiels, drums, mandolin, stylophone, percussion, accordion, lap steel guitar, toy piano, recorder, bowed cymbal, field recordings;  with:  Louis Atkinson: tenor saxophone, soprano saxophone; Emily Ireland: voice; Graham McElearney: harp; Kevin Pearce: voice; Peter Rophone: voice, 12 string acoustic guitar, Portuguese guitarra; Mick Somerset-Ward: tenor saxophone, flute.

Zed (aka Bernard Szajner)/Visions of Dune ....import CD $27.99

French electronic pioneer Bernard Szajner's 1979 concept album based around Frank Herbert's cult Dune Trilogy featured hypnotic sci-fi drones and otherworldly melodies creating a multi-layered, deeply immersive listening experience.  Remastered from the original tapes by Rashad Becker in Berlin, and with a new sleeve reimagined by acclaimed Barcelona-based designer Arnau Pi (Young Turks, Hivern Discs, DJ Kicks), the reissue includes two lost pieces from the original sessions, left off because Pathe Marconi EMI considered them to be 'too futuristic.'  After years spent in relative obscurity, it is time for the best-kept secret of the French underground to leave its protective shadow and finally appear in the full light of day.  About Bernard Szajner:  Often described as the 'French Brian Eno,' and like his British counterpart he has a parallel career as a successful visual artist. Before he started recording music he established himself as the mastermind behind innovative lighting effects for Gong, Magma, Pierre Henry, Oliver Messiasen, Stomu Yamashta and The Who. Later he became a pioneer in laser technology and robotics, inspired in 1980 by Samuel Delany's novel Nova to create a laser harp which he used live on stage. He also collaborated with Howard Devoto of Magazine, and with Karel Beer in iconoclastic new wave outfit The (Hypothetical) Prophets.

KScope debut from Russion progressive duo featuring Gavin Harrison (Porcupine Tree, King Crimson).  Iamthemorning are the latest band to join the Kscope roster, joining the likes of Steven Wilson, Anathema & Porcupine Tree.  Formed in 2010 in St Petersburg, Russia, iamthemorning feature pianist Gleb Kolyadin and vocalist Marjana Semkina.  After self releasing their debut album in 2012 and an EP early 2014, the band are set to release their new opus entitled Belighted. Recorded and mixed by Marcel van Limbeek (Tori Amos), the album also features Gavin Harrison (Porcupine Tree, King Crimson) on drums. Gleb Kolyadin, himself a classically trained musician, took great care selecting the right musicians to ensure a high standard of musicianship for both their live performances and recording utilizing guitar, bass, drums, string quartet, and a number of rather unconventional instruments including harp, as well as performing as a an acoustic duet.  Taking their influence, both musically and lyrically, from the greats of the progressive rock arena including the likes of Porcupine Tree, Philip Glass and Kate Bush, their song writing is rich with metaphorical layers: referencing Shakespearean poetry, images of modern culture, visual aesthetics of Pre-Raphaelites leading the listener to deep emotional places. Marjana Semkina explains "there isn't just sadness, loneliness and pain in iamthemorning's lyrical field; there is beauty, happiness and hope as well."

All these albums were either self-released or on Marillion's Racket Records label but in 2010 the band signed to Kscope who gave an international release to the band's album Missa Atropos in 2011.  This was followed in 2012 by March of Ghosts which was also released on Kscope who have since released London, a live album recorded at Dingwalls in Camden in January 2011.  The band returns in 2014 with Demon, their latest studio album. Missa Atropos was a concept album that dealt with themes of death, fear and loneliness and March of Ghosts is a collection of short stories telling the stories of a variety of characters from beyond the grave and Demon continues this tradition of telling rich stories through the course of the album.  The album is made up of 4 songs. These songs are based on 'the mad ramblings left behind by an unknown tenant in an apartment in Prague,' and delve deep within the demon that possessed the inhabitant and explore the evil he has caused and all that he is capable of.

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

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

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

allsaid.jpg (9081 bytes)

Over the years Bloodwyn Pig & Jethro Tull co-founder Mic Abrahams recorded a number of solo albums, steeped in the delta blues DNA that had mystically been passed down to him by Robert Johnson.  Mick Abrahams' return album, 'All Said and Done' (1991), is as fine as anything he has ever done. This is an excellent blues album.  While Mick's originals are very strong, one cannot ignore the cover tunes like 'Black Night' by Jessie Mae Robinson, 'Let Me Love You Baby' by Willie Dixon, and 'I Wonder Who' by Alexis Korner.   On this album, Mick plays with Andy Pyle (bass guitar), Bruce Boardman (piano), Clive Bunker (drums and percussion), Dave Lennox (piano), Dick Heckstall-Smith (sax), Gordon Murphy (sax), Jim Rodford (bass guitar), Nigel Pegrum (drums and percussion), and Pete Fensome (bass guitar).

Hugh Hopper/Volume Three: North & South ....import CD $17.99

Technically, by processing his bass guitar with fuzz box, flanger, wha-wha, octave pedal effects, his use of tapes loops, and latterly computer programming, Hugh constructed multi-layer soundscapes with great attention to detail. His creative template embraced aesthetics well beyond the orthodox roles assigned to the bass guitar and its practitioner.  As example, Hugh cleverly adapted the time altering effects of the repetitive tape loops he was creating with two tape recorders in the early sixties - to his bass guitar - by playing such repeating patterns in real time.  This ten part series is to compliment an heretofore large body of work (over sixty titles) by presenting previously unreleased concert and studio recordings, with the focus on Hugh's compositions as performed by groups under his leadership.

This is the fourth of a ten part series compiled by Michael King, a Canadian Hugh Hopper Scholar. He writes: "My first encounter with the music of Hugh Colin Hopper backdates to the summer of 1976. While visiting a friend I was intentionally played a record titled Volume Two from a British rock group about whom I knew little, The Soft Machine. The experience was staggering and prompted a radical reappraisal for the conventions I had been conditioned to accept as 'Progressive.' Once smitten I undertook to follow and purchase a spate of seriously inventive record albums that Hugh Hopper released and appeared on.

After the release of Clearlight Symphony, the band returned to France to record their next album in March 1975 at the Pathe Marconi studios in Boulogne, Paris under the name Delired Cameleon Family. The group includes Ivan Coaquette of Musica Elettronica Viva.  In 1975 he released this obscure, but oddly entertaining record. It is a guitar tutorial, which - considering the fact that he is one of the greatest guitarists in the business - will have helped untold thousands of wannabe axemen along their chosen path.

Clearlight/Solar Transfusion ....import CD $17.99

Clearlight is a French progressive rock band from the 1970s, although their best known work was produced in England, and released by a major British record company, Virgin. While progressive rock is an appropriate overall genre for the band, much of their work delves into other genres including psychedelic music, jam band music, symphonic rock, space rock, jazz fusion, and new age music.  'Clearlight' consists of pianist and composer Cyrille Verdeaux alongside other musicians, who are usually guest participants. Clearlight has rarely performed live.  Solar TransFusion is the third chakra of Cyrille Verdeaux's magnum opus Kundalini Opera which is spread out over a series of his albums. Solar TransFusion has a full band sound in the tradition of Clearlight Symphony and features Gong's Didier Malherbe (saxophone and flute) and Christian Boule as well as Genevieve Meynier (violin), Chico (bass), Jacky (electric guitar) and the Chorus of Les Regresses Vertes. The African rhythms and infectious grooves of Solar TransFusion will awaken your inner fire. This is classic progressive music in the Clearlight tradition!

Joey Molland/The Pilgrim ....import CD $17.99

Poor Badfinger; if ever there was a pop group "born under a bad sign," it was them. Things started off quite auspiciously. As The Iveys they signed to The Beatles' Apple Records and had a hit single. However, they decided that their name, and their image were a little old fashioned and for reasons that remain obscure they also decided to change their guitarist. Exit Ron Griffiths and enter Joey Molland. Badfinger was born.   They had hit singles with the Paul McCartney penned Come and Get It (recorded just as Griffiths was leaving the band) and No Matter What, and perhaps their greatest moment was when Harry Nilsson had a massive worldwide hit with their song Without You in 1972.   Joey Molland, who had written the vast majority of the group's later output, remains an immensely under-rated and very talented songwriter, whose career has been blighted by the appalling catalogue of disasters which had overtaken his band. He put out a string of massively under-rated solo albums including this one from 2002 which was originally independently released.

Gong/I See You ....import CD $16.99

The enduring legend that is Gong - multi-National, multi-dimensional psychedelic combo - enters yet another new phase on their four-decades plus journey with I See You, a brand new album to be released on the Madfish label.  I See You is both timeless and timely, a welcome antidote to an increasingly homogenized musical mainstream.  Tracks such as This Revolution, a spoken piece which name checks Gil Scott-Heron and picks up on the vibe of his 'The Revolution Will Not Be Televised,' articulates the kind of concerns and theories that have always inspired Daevid Allen and informed the Gong worldview, contrasts with the ferocious inter-stellar funk of 'You See Me,' which is sure to be a live favourite. Thank You is a heavy slab of psychedelicized blues, whilst 'Shakti Yoni Dingo Virgin' is a moody, melodic instrumental piece that serves to illustrate the immense musical firepower and musical diversity that lurks within the current line-up of Gong.

Growing out of the R&B boom of the early '60s, Family's sound evolved into a unique mix of progressive rock, blues, folk, jazz, psychedelia and high energy rock 'n' roll built around the distinctive vocals of frontman Roger Chapman, Charlie Whitney's innovative guitar playing and Rob Townsend's thunderous drumming. During their seven year career Family released eight albums, scoring four hit singles and seven chart albums.   Regarded by many fans and critics as the band's finest album, Fearless was originally released in 1971 and entered the UK chart at #14. The album also gave the band its first US chart placing and features the classic tracks Between Blue & Me, Sat'D'Y Barfly, Spanish Tide and Children.  This new two disc version being released through Madfish in a deluxe media book has recordings remastered from the original master tapes with a bonus disc of the band's highest UK charting single 1971's single 'In My Own Time' and B side 'Seasons.'

They are now being reissued as one disc, in agreement with Howard Riley himself, who has always viewed these two records as being part of one larger, complementary piece.  Now reissued together on one CD for the first time, these recordings come with a CD booklet featuring full recording details, photographs and liner notes from Howard Riley.

Love/Forever Changes ....Hybrid SACD $28.99

Love Forever Changes on numbered limited edition SACD from Mobile Fidelity.  Any discussion about the finest psychedelic rock record ever recorded is incomplete if it doesn't grant consideration to Love's Forever Changes. Transcending language and convention, its magnitude and magnificence need to be heard again and again. For here is an effort whose mind-boggling acoustic complexities and kaleidoscopic nuances are tailored for high-fidelity playback.  Mastered from the original master tapes, Mobile Fidelity's numbered limited-edition hybrid SACD affords the masterpiece the white-gloves treatment and golden-hued sonics it has always deserved. Nearly unlimited headroom, vast instrumental separation, transparent clarity, artifact-free atmospherics, and faithful balances appear out of jet-black backgrounds.  Commercially ignored upon release in November 1967, Forever Changes confronts the alienation, paranoia, violence, and strife that would soon plague the countercultural movement and send the Summer of Love into a tailspin. Apart from its lyrical themes and prescient malaise, the record's enduring nature equally owes to intertwined arrangements sewn together with Latin guitar-picked lines, finessed folk harmonies, mariachi-inspired horn charts, and subdued strings.

The Grateful Dead/Workingman's Dead ....Hybrid SACD $29.99

Grateful Dead/Workingman's Dead ....Hybrid SACD $29.99

Grateful Dead Workingman's Dead on numbered limited edition Hybrid SACD from Mobile Fidelity.  Bookend to 1970's American Beauty, Workingman's Dead defies the erroneous belief that the Grateful Dead never attained brilliance in the recording studio. Forever prized for natural sonics, Workingman's Dead attains audiophile reference status courtesy of this first-ever hybrid SACD version. As flawless as any rustic album ever released, the 1970 set now brims with soaring harmonies, organic execution, intertwined textures, and uncomplicated structures that furnish the songs a transcendence associated with timeless American music. Colorful, relatable characters seemingly torn from working-class histories and old-time fables inhabit the narratives.  Mastered from the original master tapes, Mobile Fidelity's numbered limited edition SACD of this period-defining recording renders the stripped-down fare with immense detail, rich airiness, and reach-out-and-touch-it realism. Longtime Deadheads and newcomers alike will hear significantly more information, experience wider and deeper soundstages, and become swept away by incredible tonal and vocal balances. Instrumental melds and refined accents, such as guest David Nelson's nimble fills on "Cumberland Blues," are part of a larger whole that gives the impression you are witness to the world's coziest campfire session. Frontier tales and refined performances further this feeling.  The first Grateful Dead album to eschew cosmic jams and complex signatures, Workingman's Dead stakes its existence to great songs, homespun warmth, and bare essentials. Its wistful, relaxed state - immediately apparent via the innocent album-opening invitation "Will you come with me?" on "Uncle John's Band" - owes to the circumstances and conditions surrounding its creation. At the time, the Dead owed a considerable financial debt to Warner Bros. and were hobbled by a recent drug bust and financial scandal. Most significantly, the band was recovering from - and reacting to - the tragic events of the Altamont Music Festival and symbolic end of the peace and love era.

The Grateful Dead/American Beauty ....Hybrid SACD $29.99

The Grateful Dead/American Beauty ....Hybrid SACD $29.99

Grateful Dead American Beauty on numbered limited edition Hybrid SACD from Mobile Fidelity.  Companion to 1970's Workingman's Dead, American Beauty is the most perfectly realized, superbly played, and openly natural folk-rock record ever released. They don't make albums like this anymore, but thankfully, Mobile Fidelity's extraordinary hybrid SACD allows you to experience this 1970 masterpiece with unrivaled intimacy, realism, detail, and perspective.  The Dead might as well be sitting on a Persian carpet right in your living room.  The pinnacle of the Dead's studio output, American Beauty lives up to its name - as well as that of the "American Reality" ambigram on the iconic cover. Airy vocal harmonies blow like fresh breezes. Strummed acoustic guitars amicably intermingle with plaintive percussive beats. Warmth, relaxation, and poignancy envelop the performances and create sensations of bliss, peace, and honesty. Songs flower with majestic melodies and emotionally direct lyrics.  It's a rare album that makes one feel, restores one's faith, and renews one's appreciation for all life offers.  Mastered from the original master tapes, this collectable hybrid SACD possesses seemingly limitless dynamics, reference-grade presence, and expansive soundstages. The seamless, effortless integration of the group's vocals has always been a high point of American Beauty, and when you hear it here, you'll want every record you own to sound half as good. Every member's distinctive singing resounds with tube-like clarity; the intended expressionism is as plain as day. Instruments, too, resonate in glorious technicolor.

The Pretenders/The Pretenders ....Hybrid SACD $28.99

The Pretenders/The Pretenders ....Hybrid SACD $28.99

The Pretenders/The Pretenders on numbered limited edition SACD from Mobile Fidelity.   Mastered from the original master tapes: added extension, sharper imaging, multi-dimensional soundstaging place The Pretenders on a small stage in your room.   Mastered from the original master tapes, Mobile Fidelity's collectable SACD of The Pretenders grants the influential music newfound clarity, punch, dynamics, and perspective that enhance he realism and attack of everything from Hynde's vocal snarl to the band's myriad textures.  Originally recorded live in the studio at high volume levels by producer Chris Thomas, the record now boasts added extension, sharper imaging, multi-dimensional soundstaging, and a crispness that practically places the Pretenders onstage in your room. Replete with detail and nuance - particularly, Hynde's singing and Honeyman-Scott's terrific array of hovering chords, colorful palettes, and inventive effects - this is a record that rewards repeat listening and full-bloom playback.   The milieu the Pretenders create on their groundbreaking debut didn't exist when the album came out in early 1980. Such is the magnitude of originality, creativity, and nerve the band captured on a record that captivated each side of the Atlantic and both upended and advanced tradition. The no-nonsense set also announced the arrival of the inimitable Chrissie Hynde, one of the greatest singer-songwriters in rock history, gender be damned. Equally significant, the album remains just one of two studio efforts featuring the original members before tragedy ended the lives of guitarist James Honeyman-Scott and bassist Pete Farndon.  Pretenders is not only one of the most impressive album debuts in history, it's one of the most essential records, independent of genre or timing, ever made. Hear this energetic music in the finest-possible fidelity it's ever enjoyed.

Miles Davis/Bitches Brew ....Hybrid SACD $29.99

Miles Davis/Bitches Brew ....Hybrid SACD $29.99

The Allman Brothers Band/Brothers and Sisters ....Hybrid SACD $28.99

The Allman Brothers Band/Brothers and Sisters ....Hybrid SACD $28.99

The Allman Brothers Band Brothers and Sisters on numbered limited edition hybrid SACD from Mobile Fidelity.  Chart-topping album includes smash "Ramblin' Man" and favorites"Jessica" and"Southbound."  Mastered from the original master tapes, Mobile Fidelity's hybrid SACD of Brothers and Sisters joins the unparalleled reissue imprint's other Allman titles in presenting the superlative ensemble's work in the most lifelike, uncompromised fidelity possible in the digital format. Whether it's the feather-light harmonic layering of the collective's background vocals, echoing cavity of Leavell's gospel-tinted piano, skin-against-skin smack of Jaimoe's congas, or sweet dobro lines laid down by Betts, this version betters all previous digital pressings by bringing you, the listener, as close to the studio as any record feasibly can.  Brothers and Sisters is significant for myriad reasons. It's the first album the Allman Brothers Band made in its entirety after Duane Allman's death. It also came after bassist Berry Oakley's spookily similar passing, yet he appears on two of the songs.  The 1973 set also marks the emergence of guitarist Dickey Betts as the collective's leader, and pianist Chuck Leavell's arrival. But more than anything else, the record remains noteworthy for its incredible soulfulness and completeness.  Having stayed at the top of the Billboard charts for five consecutive weeks, Brothers and Sisters constitutes the Allman Brothers Band's biggest commercial triumph.

This suite of original music is perhaps Sample's most ambitious both compositionally and arrangement wise.  Coincides with UNESCO's 20th Anniversary of the Slave Route Project: A Commitment to Reconciliation. Sample's inspiration for his compositions was a performance at the St. Croix Jazz Festival. In the 17th century, St. Croix was a vital part of what is referred to as the "middle passage" for slavery. The juxtaposition of the beauty of the island, the brutality of slavery, and the helplessness the slaves must have felt, being the backdrop to Sample's compositions.  Certain to be a classic in the genre it will appeal to jazz fans as well as contemporary classical audiences.  Sample is an iconic pianist and seminal figure in contemporary jazz. A master at fusing elements of blues, R&B, & pop, with a heavy dose of "gulf coast funk."

Dean Magraw & Eric Kamau Gravatt/Fire on the Nile ....CD $16.99

A cosmic aural romp...spontaneous, bare bones, profound and dazzling!  "Fire on the Nile" is the exciting new jazz fusion album by guitarist Dean Magraw and drummer Eric Kamau Gravatt. The two have rich musical pedigrees...Gravatt acclaimed stints with Weather Report, MCCoy Tyner, Joe Henderson, Tony Hymas...and Magraw genre defying work with the likes of organist Jack MCDuff, Eight Head, folksinger Greg Brown, and the Irish band Altan, to name but a few. For two years they have been uniting in mind-bending shows and this new studio recording is the first to capture the magic. Using only guitar and drum set, the music is startlingly stripped down, but the result is expansive, thrilling and at times symphonic. "We went the Coltrane direction," says Magraw. "I really studied his compositions and the way he played music, improvised and writes music." Saint Paul native Magraw found and connected with a kindred spirit in the dynamic Gravatt, a Philly native who'd grown up immersed in the city's rich multi-cultural music scene. The end result is a rollicking foray into melodic/rhythmic interplay that captures their years and years of musical expression.

The long running Dutch progressive rock band had previously released four albums and toured Europe and USA extensively, performing at all major prog rock festivals.

Foghat/Drivin' Wheels: Best of 1972-1982 ....double CD $24.99

For the only double CD set that comprehensively covers the career of boogie-blues masters Foghat, look no further than Drivin' Wheels: Best Of 1972-1982. This stunning compilation combines the absolute best Foghat tracks, 32 in total culled from the band's astonishing run of superb Gold and Platinum-selling albums. Not only does Drivin' Wheels contain many key tracks from 10 albums but also most importantly the original full-length studio album versions of all their hit singles - 'I Just Want to Make Love to You,' 'Ride, Ride, Ride,' 'Fool for the City,' 'Drivin' Wheel,' 'Stone Blue' and their monumental, eight-minute showstopper 'Slow Ride.' When it comes to hard-driving blues rock and boogie, Foghat were masters of the form.  The band's sound was American in origin, but the members came from the UK with guitarists 'Lonesome' Dave Peverett and Rod Price once being part of the similarly styled Savoy Brown.  Throughout the 1970s Foghat reigned supreme on the US touring circuit. "They never deviated from their straight-ahead, three-chord romps and always lived up to audience expectations." (All Music). Their albums Energized, Night Shift, Fool for the City and Stone Blue stand up remarkable well but their pinnacle achievement came with the towering, two-million selling Live album. Included here are the killer, full-length live versions of 'Fool for the City,' 'I Just Want to Make Love to You' and 'Honey Hush.' Superb audio quality and detailed liner notes, this powerpacked double CD is a must for fans of classic rock and blues-tilted boogie.

King Crimson/Starless (Limited Edition Boxed Set) ....27 Disc Box Set $229.99

Only Two Copies Left!!!

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

• 19 CDs of live performance material including: 7 CDs taken from multi-track tape including 4CDs of material from the Glasgow & Zurich shows, freshly assembled & mastered in Hi-Res from the original Great Deceiver mixes by David Singleton at DGM Soundworld in 2014, the Amsterdam show The Nightwatch mixed by Steven Wilson & a previously unheard preparatory of material from the same show prepared by George Chkiantz (engineer of all live KC shows of the era & the Red album).  11 CDs drawn from high quality stereo reel to reel soundboard tapes. 8 making their first appearance on CD with the remaining three re-mastered or drawn from new tape sources.  1 CD presenting the performance from the ORTF Paris TV broadcast.

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

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

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

Peter Hammill/...All that Might Have Been... ....import CD $19.99

Peter Hammill/...All that Might Have Been... ....import CD $19.99

2014 release from the veteran Art/Prog Rock singer, songwriter and musician best known for his work with Van Der Graaf Generator. This is not a disc of conventional songs, though the fragments from which it's formed originally came from discrete examples of the standard form. These pieces, though, have been cut up and rearranged to form a continuous whole. As in a film, scenes blur into one another, moving backwards and forwards in time and space. Characters appear and disappear, wait in the shadows or are suddenly front of stage and under the spotlight. It's a chiaroscuro, quicksand world in which the music is both its own soundtrack and screenplay. Written and recorded over an eighteen month period - the longest ever for a PH solo work - the album has gone through many twists, turns and transformations before arriving in this final form. It's not a concept album as such but its use of jagged soundscapes, fletting and shadowed characters and elusive plotlines place it closer to a cinematic world than a narrative song one. The sound palate consists of guitars, synths, crushed beats and, of course, insistent vocals. This is unlike anything Peter has attempted before, even after 45 years at the game.

Van Der Graaf Generator/Merlin Atmos - Live Performances 2013 ....import CD $26.99

Esoteric Antenna, are pleased to announce the release of the marvellous new live album by Van der Graaf Generator, "Merlin Atmos."  In June 2013, Peter Hammill, Hugh Banton and Guy Evans took to the road in Europe to present a series of live concerts that featured a set list that excited devotees of Van Der Graaf Generator like no other for many years. The band had decided the time was right to present their epic classic piece "A Plague of Lighthouse Keepers" in its entirety on stage for the first time, along with Peter Hammill's equally epic "Flight."  As the centrepieces of the band's live set, a series of wonderful concerts took place, drawing on the classic material from the band's past, as well as their more recent albums such as "A Grounding in Numbers."  Fortunately, some of these shows were recorded for posterity and have now been gathered together to form "Merlin Atmos."   Arguably the finest live album in the history of the band, "Merlin Atmos" confirms Van der Graaf Generator as a continuing musical force and explains the loyalty and respect they continue to receive from devotees the world over. "Merlin Atmos" is a stunning musical statement from a stunningly innovative band.  The limited edition 2 CD digipack edition features a 70 minute CD of "Extras" recorded on the 2013 European tour including such classic tracks as 'Scorched Earth,' 'Man-Erg,' 'Meurglys III, the Songwriter's Guild' and 'Your Time Starts Now.'

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

French progressive legends Magma have signed to Jazz Village. Over the next 18 months the label will release new works as well as undertaking a major vinyl re-issue programme. The first release is a dramatic reworking of the epic track R´ah Sah´ltaahk - now available as a mini-album on CD and LP.  R´ah Sah´ltaahk, the Koba´an who set out after the others despite their disapproval, who considered himself superior, who thought he could convert the enemies of Kobaia to the Kobaian spirit. But he failed, and wound up alone. On the allegorical stopover planet of Malaria he confronts the full fury of the elements, imagining he will emerge triumphant. His ship almost completely submerged, he is finally forced to implore the elements for mercy but to no avail. He disappears, drowned, swept away in a storm of elemental trance. After the clamor... silence. History and Context: The original version of R´ah Sah´ltaahk formed Side 1 of the group's second album 1001Degrees Centigrades, recorded in 1971. At the time Christian Vander was unhappy with the arrangement written by the group, and indeed the line-up changed after the album's release. This radically new version, adapted to suit the group's current line-up and classical voices, is more faithful to the spirit of Magma's music and its uniquely weird and wonderful nature.

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.

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."

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

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

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

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.

 

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Esoteric Recordings are pleased to announce the release of a newly re-mastered and expanded edition of the classic self-titled 1972 album by John Kongos. South African born Kongos had some success in his native country in the early 1960s before moving to Britain to further his career. He recorded his first album for Pye Records' newly formed "progressive" label Dawn in 1970 before signing to Fly / Cube Records with whom he enjoyed two successful and highly creative hit singles "He's Gonna Step on You Again" and "Tokoloshe Man."  The album "Kongos" was released in 1972 and was a UK chart hit. Produced by Gus Dudgeon, "Kongos" featured a diversity of styles and experimentation and saw contributions from musicians such as Ray Cooper and Caleb Quaye. 'He's Gonna Step On You Again' was recorded by the Happy Mondays in 1990 as 'Step,' (a hit single), which brought Kongos' music to a new generation of followers.  This Esoteric Recordings release has been newly re-mastered and features nine bonus tracks (taken from his singles released by Fly / Cube Records), a booklet that fully restores the original album artwork and a new essay.

Michael Mantler/The Jazz Composer's Orchestra Update ....CD $17.99

Michael Mantler/The Jazz Composer's Orchestra Update ....CD $17.99

In 1968, composer-trumpeter Michael Mantler recorded The Jazz Composer's Orchestra. Released by ECM, this classic, groundbreaking album of composition and improvisation featured Mantler conducting a large jazz orchestra that included some of the era's iconic free improvisers as soloists: pianist Cecil Taylor, cornetist Don Cherry, trombonist Roswell Rudd, saxophonist Pharoah Sanders, guitarist Larry Coryell, saxophonist Gato Barbieri. In the process of digitizing his catalog, Mantler reacquainted himself with early scores, eventually envisioning fresh performances of this vintage material.   With The Jazz Composer's Orchestra Update, Mantler has re-imagined his 1960s music for the 21st century, with electric guitar and amplified string quartet added to the instrumentation. The Nouvelle Cuisine Big Band of energized young Europeans, conducted by Christoph Cech and featuring Mantler on trumpet, was recorded in these updated scores live at Vienna's Porgy & Bess club in 2013. Just as the original did in 1968, the result sounds stirringly contemporary, brimming with dark majesty and a bright sense of sonic possibility.

Jarrett Haden & Motian/Hamburg '72 ....CD $17.99

Jarrett Haden & Motian/Hamburg '72 ....CD $17.99

Keith Jarrett: piano, soprano saxophone, flute, percussion; Charlie Haden: double bass; Paul Motian: drums, percussion.  In the late 60s/early 70s when Keith Jarrett was working with Art Blakey and the Jazz Messengers and with the Charles Lloyd Quartet, he also began working as a leader with Charlie Haden and Paul Motian. This trio - formed in 1966 - became Keith's first great band, his choice of players a masterstroke. With the bassist who had learned his craft in Ornette Coleman's band, and the drummer from Bill Evans's ground-breaking trio, Jarrett was able to explore the full scope of modern jazz, from poetic balladry to hard-swinging time-playing to ferocious and fiery free music, the improvisation including episodes with Keith on soprano sax. The interaction between the three musicians is uncanny throughout, reaching a peak in an emotion drenched performance of Charlie Haden's "Song for Che."  ECM set up the 1972 tour of the Jarrett Trio, including the German radio concert from which this album is drawn. Manfred Eicher returned to the original tapes 42 years later, remixing the music for this edition in Oslo in July 2014, together with Jan Erik Kongshaug.  The music is extraordinary.

The Doors/Feast of Friends ....DVD $16.99
The Doors/Feast of Friends ....Blu-Ray $18.99

The Doors/Feast of Friends ....DVD $16.99

Feast Of Friends, filmed in 1968, was the first and only film produced about The Doors by The Doors. It offers a cinematic look at The Doors on the road during their summer '68 tour. While never truly completed, the film provides a stylistic approach in true sixties cinema verite style. Concert performances are intercut with fly-on-the-wall footage of the group in their natural habitat, sometimes playful, sensitive, chaotic and touching. Other than a few appearances in film festivals in 1968, an official release would never be seen until now. Completely restored from the original negative, as supervised by Jim Morrison, the film has been color corrected and cleaned in high definition with the soundtrack totally remixed and remastered by long-time Doors' collaborator Bruce Botnick.  Bonus Features:  1) Feast Of Friends: Encore - A newly produced feature using footage shot for Feast Of Friends, Encore is a complimentary piece which provides a deeper look into the life of the band at this period as they tour, record, travel and even vacation together. The program avoids the typical selection of hits and makes use of The Doors rare recordings to accompany this unreleased footage.  2) The Doors Are Open - A British TV documentary originally aired on December 17th, 1968, The Doors Are Open is focused around the band's performance at London's Roundhouse, which took place just days after the completion of filming for Feast of Friends. Although previously released, the film has suffered from numerous sound and picture quality issues. Now the image quality has been dramatically improved and the sound has been transformed by Bruce Botnick to be as true to the original live sound as possible.  3) The End - Filmed in Toronto, Canada in August 1967 and first broadcast in October that year, this performance of "The End" was for The O'Keefe Centre Presents: The Rock Scene - Like It Is. In addition to the performance it includes the introduction by Noel Harrison and later interviews by John Densmore, Robby Krieger, Ray Manzarek and Danny Sugerman. Many fans consider this recording to be one of the best Doors performances ever caught on film.

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."

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.

Dennis DeYoung/...And the Music of Styx Live in Los Angeles ....Blu-Ray $22.99

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!

The resulting album was a mixture of conventional Mott the Hoople-style rock and sonic experiments.  The album features six bonus tracks. Including alternate versions of "Letter To Britannia From The Union Jack," "Apathy 83," and "God (Take 1)."

Al Di Meola/The Al Di Meola Collection ....CD $14.99

The Al Di Meola Collection focuses on the past two decades of Di Meloa's career, in which he has continued to conquer new musical horizons. The Collection kicks off with "Race with Devil on Turkish Highway," a guitar duel like none other with Steve Vai, off Di Meola's 1998 Telarc debut, The Infinite Desire. The album, featuring some of the most extensive and effective uses of midi technology, has sold more than 100,000 copies to date and logged over 3 months on Billboard's Contemporary Jazz Chart. 2002's The Grande Passion features Di Meola's acoustic group, World Sinfonia, and boasts diverse sounds taken from every corner of the world, such as the sultry, Latin-tinged "Libertango." Chick Corea cover "Senor Mouse" comes by way of 2002's critically acclaimed Flesh on Flesh, an album which put the spotlight back on Di Meola's outstanding electric guitar work. Several tracks are featured from 2006's Consequence of Chaos; a record of original compositions with guest appearances by Corea, among others. The Collection concludes with a dreamy cover of the classic song "Over the Rainbow," a selection from 2011's Pursuit of a Radical Rhapsody.

George Duke/The George Duke Collection ....CD $14.99

The George Duke Collection focuses on the versatile artist's time on the Heads-Up label - an era, seemingly, of reflection: whether Duke found himself returning to his funk roots, employing his signature synth sounds and vintage techniques in the studio (Deja Vu), or paying tribute to his beloved wife, after her passing (Dreamweaver). The Collection includes plenty of upbeat funk, as well as introspective pieces, like the autobiographical "Trippin'." Famous friends join in too: "Ball & Chain" features the late Teena Marie, while Rachelle Ferrell, Wayman Tisdale and Sheila E. join a handful of other luminaries on these tracks. A compilation for new and old fans alike, The George Duke Collection finds an artist who was 40 years into his career, yet still riding high on the top of his game when he left us, much too soon.

Shawn Phillips/Infinity ....CD $12.99

Shawn Phillips/Infinity ....CD $12.99

Shawn Phillips is one of most fascinating and enigmatic musicians to come out of the early '70s singer-songwriter boom.  In addition to recording more than 20 solo albums he has worked with Donovan, Eric Clapton, Steve Winwood, Bernie Taupin, The Beatles and many others. Shawn has been described as "The best kept secret in the music business," by the late rock impresario Bill Graham.  Infinity was recorded in 1989 using the "Infinity Device." It was an innovative experiment, but remained unreleased until now. The "Infinity Device," was a collection of pre MIDI analog synthesizers and drum modules modified to allow Shawn to perform alone yet sound like an entire band. Tracks 1-4 and 8 were done live by Shawn with no overdubbing. Tracks 2-3-5 and 7 were performed live by Shawn with additional parts played simultaneously by Elmo Peeler. Each track was recorded in one take. The entire album was recorded and mixed in two days at Cherokee Studios. This is the only studio recording of Shawn performing with the Infinity Device.

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.

Bela Fleck & Abigail Washburn/Bela Fleck & Abigail Washburn ....CD $15.99

Bela Fleck & Abigail Washburn/Bela Fleck & Abigail Washburn ....CD $15.99

Although they've participated in each other's projects in the past, this album represents the first true musical coming together of banjo royalty.  With 15 Grammy wins in more categories than any other artist as well as 30 nominations Bela Fleck is considered the premiere banjo player in the world.  Bela and Abigail jointly are fancied "banjo royalty" certainly in Bluegrass and Americana circles, but beyond that as well.

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.

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

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

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

Prior to his career with Mayall, Mark and Mick Jagger co-produced Marianne Faithfull's early albums, with Mark later writing material for her and touring with her. Almond, meanwhile, had played in Zoot Money's Big Roll Band, the Alan Price Set, and Johnny Almond's Music Machine. Both joined the Bluesbreakers in 1969 and appeared on the albums Turning Point and Empty Rooms; they left in 1970 and recruited bassist Rodger Sutton and keyboardist Tommy Eyre.   Includes two bonus tracks the single edits of "The City" and "The Ghetto."

Carolina Eyck & Christopher Tarnow/Improvisations for Theremin and Piano ....CD $14.99

Carolina Eyck & Christopher Tarnow/Improvisations for Theremin and Piano ....CD $14.99

Improvisations for Theremin and Piano is the American recording debut of German theremin virtuoso Carolina Eyck with pianist/composer Christopher Tarnow.  Eyck began studies at age seven with Russian thereminist Lydia Kavina, a student of Leon Theremin's protege Clara Rockmore. Frustrated with the limitations of her inherited technique, Eyck developed her own method of playing, using a highly modified theremin. She published The Art of Playing the Theremin, the first extensive and influential method book for the instrument, when she was 17. Improvisations captures the chemistry and musical intuition of Eyck and Tarnow playing in a completely improvised dialogue, and presents the instrument's most virtuosic performer in an exceptionally candid - and entirely unedited - recording.

Originally released in 1974, WarChild features one of the group's most prolific lineups and includes Ian Anderson, Martin Barre, John Evans, Jeffrey Hammond-Hammond and Barrie Barlow. Unlike its predecessors Thick As a Brick and A Passion Play which featured 40-odd minutes of continuous music, WarChild marked a return to songs of a more conventional length, including the FM-radio staple, Bungle in the Jungle. The new Theatre Edition unearths a trio of unreleased recordings: Tomorrow Was Today, Good Godmother, and a different arrangement of WarChild recorded after the version on the final album.   Fans intrigued by the appearance of WarChild Waltz on the 2002 reissue of WarChild will finally get the chance to hear the rest of the mostly orchestral music the band recorded for the soundtrack album. About 30 minutes was recorded during sessions in 1973 and 1974. Soon after, the music was consigned to the archives for 40 years until now.    In 1974, Jethro Tull announced plans for WarChild, a multi-faceted project that was to encompass a feature-length film, a soundtrack album, as well as a new album from the band. In October of that year, Tull released a 10-song album that would climb to #2 in the U.S. and the top 15 in the U.K., but the film and accompanying soundtrack were shelved. To commemorate the 40-year anniversary of this ambitious experiment, Parlophone revisits WarChild.  A new stereo remix of WarChild is available on single CD.    WarChild: The 40th Anniversary Theatre Edition will be available as a limited edition 2-CD/2-DVD.  Highlights from the set include:
- Original album and bonus tracks (three previously unreleased), remixed in 5.1 surround and stereo by Steven Wilson.
- 10 orchestral pieces (nine previously unreleased) written for the film's soundtrack, 4 of which are remixed in 5.1 surround and stereo by Steven Wilson.
- Flat transfers of the original LP mix at 96/24, and the quadrophonic version (with 2 bonus tracks) in 4.0.
- The Third Hoorah promo footage, and footage from a January 1974 photo session/press conference where the WarChild project was announced.
- An 80-page booklet featuring an extensive history of the project, a film script synopsis, track-by-track annotations by Ian Anderson, plus rare and unseen photographs.

Can/Saw Delight ....CD $13.99

Can/Saw Delight ....CD $13.99

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

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.

Foreigner/The Complete Atlantic Studio Albums 1977-1991 ....7 CD Box Set $39.99

Foreigner achieved massive success on a global scale during the '70s and '80s thanks to a long list of hit singles and sold-out tours. Today, the group's sales exceed 80 million records, a figure that places Foreigner among the best-selling bands of all time.

In 2001 Roger Taylor was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame with Queen, and is acknowledged as one of the most influential drummers in popular music.

Roger Taylor : Best draws from those releases with 18 tracks - from his first single, "I Wanna Testify" (recorded during Queen's News Of The World album sessions) through his latest album, Fun on Earth from 2013. In between are key cuts from Fun in Space (1981), Strange Frontier (1984), Happiness? (1994), and Electric Fire (1998) providing a select survey of Roger's solo work for new and old fans alike!  And if that's not enough for you, skip Best and go for the whole shebang with the 12 CD + DVD box set, The Lot.  The Lot includes Taylor's total solo output and includes a 64 page hard bound book with slipcase.

Circa Survive/Descensus ....CD $14.99

Circa Survive/Descensus ....CD $14.99

Circa Survive, the progressive 5-piece rock band from Doylestown, Pennsylvania self-produced their fourth album Violent Waves at Studio 4 in suburban Philadelphia and have recently re-released it on Sumerian Records. Now they are back with their newest effort Descensus.  Hailed as a remarkably visceral live act since their foundation, Circa Survive began their career with a genre-bending debut in 2005 entitled Juturna. Written and recorded before the band had ever performed a live show together, Juturna showcased the band's raw energy with "Act Appalled," and future-fans were introduced to Circa Survive through glistening tracks "The Great Golden Baby" and "In Fear and Faith."  In 2007, the band followed-up with an acclaimed sophomore album, On Letting Go, which brought the brand into another realm of success. "The Difference Between Medicine and Poison Is in the Dose" and "In the Morning and Amazing" highlighted the band's strength as musicians and songwriters and poised them to be one of the most respected bands in rock music.  After nearly two years of non-stop touring with Coheed and Cambria, Thrice, and more including jaw-dropping performances at such varied music festivals as Coachella and Bamboozle, the band needed a much-deserved break.  Emerging after months of writing sessions and major life experiences, Circa Survive teamed with producer David Bottrill (Tool, Muse, King Crimson) and signed with major label Atlantic Records to release Blue Sky Noise in April 2010. The album debuted at #11 on the Billboard Top 200.  Two years later - with no record label or traditional distribution outlet - Violent Waves debuted at #15. Charged with the lead track "Birth of the Economic Hit Man" clocking in at over 7-minutes in length, vocalist Anthony Green proclaims "we've become everything we criticize" shunning the safe and traditional and introducing fans to the next chapter of Circa Survive history.  Now with their new album on deck, the machine that is Circa Survive, is showing no signs of slowing down.

Circa Survive/Violent Waves [Deluxe Edition] ....CD + DVD $15.99

Circa Survive/Violent Waves [Deluxe Edition] ....CD + DVD $15.99

Since their formation in 2004, Circa Survive has not only garnered critical acclaim in the rock genre, but has also developed a strong and devoted fan base. A remarkably volatile live act, Circa Survive has headlined numerous sold out tours while also sharing stages with an array of the most respected like-minded artists, including My Chemical Romance, Coheed & Cambria and Rise Against - amongst others. Furthermore, the band has been featured on tours such as Coachella, Bamboozle, Warped Tour and South by Southwest. On a regular basis Circa Survive continues to increase their fan base, perform at sold-out tours and make critically acclaimed music.

Joni Mitchell - Love Has Many Faces: A Quartet a Ballet Waiting CD Box Set $49.98
2014 newly remastered career-spanning box set: Love Has Many Faces: A Quartet, a Ballet, Waiting to Be Danced. The box set collects 53 tracks over four discs from her early Reprise label recordings through her later Geffen Records & back, personally chosen by Joni. Long time listeners should find the music familiar but fresh. There has been a lot of sonic adjustment. Newcomers to this music have an adventure before them - a journey into highly-original, harmonically innovative, unusually rhythmic music. Some of the greatest musicians in the world are gathered here - supporting this emotionally charged exploration of love's many faces. This set truly is an artist-curated collection. Joni personally selected the material from 40 years of recording. She designed the complete package. It includes a deluxe hardcover book by Joni that contains 53 lyrical poems (one for each song), six new paintings and extensive liner notes with an autobiographical text illuminating her recording process. It is funny, mystical, and informative. This set was first conceived as the music to a ballet about love. After several years, she had created a four-act ballet based on the 53 songs that make up this inspiring collection. "I am a painter who writes songs. My songs are very visual. The words create scenes... What I have done here is to gather some of these scenes (like a documentary filmmaker) and by juxtaposition, edit them into a whole new work," the artist writes. She organized the music into different thematic acts, which allowed her songs to interact with one another in a whole new way. The process, she says, was a lot like making a film. "I had forty years of footage to review. Then, suddenly, scenes began to hook up. Then series began to form. Instead of it being an emotional roller coaster ride as it was before - crammed into one disc - themes began to develop. Moods sustained. I was getting there... When this long editorial process (two years) finally came to rest, I had four ballets or a four-act ballet - a quartet. I also had a box set."

Captain Beefheart & His Magic Band - Commodore Ballroom Vancouver 1981 CD $24.98
Live archive release from the eccentric musical visionary. Noted for his powerful singing voice with its wide range, Don Van Vliet AKA Captain Beefheart also played the harmonica, saxophone and numerous other wind instruments. His music blended rock, blues and psychedelia with avant-garde and contemporary experimental composition. Beefheart was also known for exercising an almost dictatorial control over his supporting musicians, and for often constructing myths about his life. This extraordinary record catches the Captain at his best; live on stage in 1981. Someone who was in the audience that night later wrote: "The Captain Beefheart show was beyond my expectations, it washed over us with a magic gumbo of free-jazz, swampy blues, avante garde squawking and punky insolence. We loved it. We didn't know what it was, but we loved it. Captain Beefheart was at least twice as old as most of us in the room, but that wasn't an issue, not in the least. It rocked our world."

The Crazy World of Arthur Brown - Zim Zam Zim CD $13.98
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.

The band originally formed in 1966 but split up 8 years later. They reunited in 1999 and continued to perform until 2006.

It's a Beautiful Day - Workin the Goldmine CD $14.98
That 1998 show was called "I Want to Take You Higher" Psychedelic Era 1965-1968 at the Fillmore West on May 10th 1997. This was for a national tour starting in SF for the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame Museum. Everyone of the the bands on that bill played 3 songs - that's all. It was the short beginning of putting some of the original guys back together. We did a few more shows after that for about a year and then decided it wasn't going anywhere. Old feelings from the past arose and reasons why the band broke up in the first place came into play. We had some bigger shows coming on the east coast so we decided to hook up with Toby Gray and band members he knew and the rest was history. Our gig at The Goldmine in Aug. 2000 was pretty special since it marked the first time we played with our new (and currect) lineup: Toby Gray on Bass, Val Fuentes on Drums, Gary Thomas on Keyboards & recording equipment, Rob Espinosa on Guitar and of course Linda on vocals with me on vocals and violin, as always. We were very excited about playing together and felt the magic of the music we were creating and recreating from our early days in the sixties and seventies, There was, and still is, a definite connection which has kept us together for the last 15yrs. We got signed with Fantasma Music Agency not long after this gig and played all over the US ever since and made several recordings along the way. I'd like to take this opportunity to say thanks to all of you who have stuck with us all these years. It's had its ups and downs - mostly ups, thank god! We are all still in good health and raring to go to keep entertaining you as best we can. As an additional "thank you" we've included the 4 original demos we recorded in 1968 to get our deal with Columbia Records. Hope you enjoy them! - David LaFlamme 2014

Jefferson Airplane - Family Dog at the Great Highway Sf-June 11th 1969 CD $17.98

Jefferson Airplane - Last Stand at Winterland CD $14.98
This KSAN radio broadcast marks a pivotal moment in the convoluted history of one of the West Coast's foremost bands, Jefferson Airplane. On this particular evening, Sunday 4th October 1970, San Francisco's Winterland Ballroom played host to the very cream of the city's psychedelic pioneers. But it was a supremely memorable event for two other reasons. Firstly, Janis Joplin had died the night before in Hollywood of a heroin overdose, and secondly, it marked the last appearance of Airplane founder and co-lead vocalist Marty Balin as a member of the band for almost 20 years. Deeply affected by the news of Janis' untimely death, Balin had wanted to cancel the show, but was out-voted by his band mates. The Jefferson Airplane formed in San Francisco in 1965 when pop singer Marty Balin hooked up with folk singer & guitarist Paul Kanter. After some initial juggling with personnel, the line-up solidified to also include bassist Jack Casady, guitarist Jorma Kaukonen, vocalist Grace Slick and drummer Spencer Dryden. They were soon signed by RCA Victor and their first album Jefferson Airplane Takes Off was issued in August 1966. A second album, Surrealistic Pillow, which was more psychedelic in direction, was recorded and released in February 1967. This was the Airplane's big breakthrough and the album peaked at No 3 on the Billboard chart. Two singles drawn from it became the band's highest scoring Top 40 hits: 'Somebody to Love' peaked at No 5 and 'White Rabbit' at No 8. The Airplane's set this evening draws most heavily of their fourth and fifth albums, Crown Of Creation (1968) and Volunteers (1969). This performance's ultimate track, 'Volunteers', marks Marty Balin's last moments with the band as he finally sings: "Gotta revolution - oh yeah, and I need a new band!" and then it was all over. A second concert, the following evening, saw the debut of the now Balin-less line-up and the addition to the ranks of electric violinist, Papa John Creach.

Jethro Tull - Warchild CD $17.98
Digitally remastered 40th Anniversary Edition of the original version of the band's 1974 seventh studio album. This reissue has been newly remixed by Porcupine Tree's studio wizard Steven Wilson. Includes the FM radio hits 'Skating Away (On the Thin Ice of the New Day)' and 'Bungle In the Jungle'.

Joachim Kuehn - Dynamics & Im Not Dreaming: Collectors Premium CD $19.98
Free jazz, free rock, rock jazz, modal jazz, sound experiments, and chamber music just to name a few. Joachim Kuehn unites the most distinct expressions, forming a culture with his polystylistic experiences including romanticism, tonal and atonal qualities, modern compositions, and European but also global characteristics. The "clean style" doctrine never interested him as purism had always bored him. He associated his name with everything including a distinct personal style as well as his improvisational and compositional handwriting. It is more complex than a one-dimensional acoustic picture of the virtuous energetic musician, the Dionysian and ecstatic friend, shimmering waterfalls, a steady pace, and than that of what the occasional testosterone-filled machismo radiates. Each CMP album documents his sources of inspiration, which are so rich of pianists and their microcosms. Independent and uncompromising. There is a lot included in the music, but one thing isn't for sure: mainstream.

Gyorgy Ligeti - Cello Concerto-Mysteries of the MacAbre-Piano Concerto CD $15.98

Little Feat - Hellzapoppin CD $14.98
It's not surprising that Little Feat are on such blistering form during this 1975 WCBN broadcast, transmitted from the prestigious Orpheum Theatre in Boston on that year's Halloween Night, as the band had been honing their already-considerable skills to razor-sharp perfection during a consecutive 5-night residency at Paul's Mall - a smaller club in the city - prior to moving to the larger, 2,500-seat Orpheum for this concert. The North American tour of which these shows were part, was in support of Little Feat's fifth LP, The Last Record Album, released just days after this gig. Little Feat's first two albums were firmly rooted in the Blues, with the first featuring a medley of Howlin' Wolf numbers, Forty-Four Blues and How Many More Years. Released a year later, Sailin' Shoes, was another highly acclaimed release. Unfortunately, at this stage, critical success had yet to translate into sales, and the band split up. They quickly reformed - Estrada was replaced by Kenny Gradney and the line-up expanded to include second guitarist Paul BarrŔre and percussionist Sam Clayton. The new members brought new influences and the group's Blues roots were now tempered with New Orleans style R'n'B and funkier elements. The first recorded evidence of this was the 1973-released Dixie Chicken album. The anthemic title track is a stone cold classic and undoubtedly the band's best known recording. The band's fourth album, Feats Don't Fail Me Now was released in 1974, and was notable for the inclusion of new recordings of Cold Cold Cold and Triple Face Boogie. Little Feat only completed one more studio album (1977's Time Loves A Hero), before the untimely death of Lowell George from a heart attack - whilst working on the posthumously released Down On The Farm. But thankfully recordings like this remain to remind us how great they were. So crank up that amp and witness the mighty roar of Little Feat in their prime, with Lowell and his compadres firing on all cylinders!

Little Feat - Live at Ultrasonic Studios Long Island April CD $17.98

Mark-Almond Band - Mark-Almond CD $13.98
Long out of print on CD the first album from Mark-Almond features the early seventies classics, "The Ghetto" and "The City." British session musicians Jon Mark (vocals, guitar, drums) and John Almond (vocals, woodwinds, vibes, percussion) met while playing together in John Mayall's Bluesbreakers and left in 1970 to form Mark-Almond, sometimes referred to as the Mark-Almond Band. Prior to his career with Mayall, Mark and Mick Jagger co-produced Marianne Faithfull's early albums, with Mark later writing material for her and touring with her. Almond, meanwhile, had played in Zoot Money's Big Roll Band, the Alan Price Set, and Johnny Almond's Music Machine. Both joined the Bluesbreakers in 1969 and appeared on the albums Turning Point and Empty Rooms; they left in 1970 and recruited bassist Rodger Sutton and keyboardist Tommy Eyre. Includes two bonus tracks the single edits of "The City" and "The Ghetto."

Lou Reed - Hassled in April CD $14.98
The broadcast recordings included on this release showcases Lou Reed's eighth solo album, 'Street Hassle', which was issued in April 1978, during the most prolific period of the man's recording career. Lou Reed had embarked as a solo artist in the early 1970's, following his departure from the extraordinarily influential Velvet Underground. Every one of their four albums recorded during Reed's tenure with the group is included in Rolling Stone magazine's list of 'The 500 Greatest Albums of All Time'. Lou's own versions of two of the most commercially successful tracks from the fourth VU album, Loaded, are included here. After leaving the Velvets during the recording of Loaded in August 1970, Lou moved to RCA Records and issued his eponymous solo debut the following year. The follow-up, 'Transformer' (1972) and co-produced by David Bowie and Mick Ronson was a different matter entirely. It boasted an insistently memorable hit single in the shape of the marvelously affectionate tribute to the Warhol/Factory era, 'Walk On The Wild Side', a song that Lou reprises here, together with the glorious ballad 'Satellite Of Love' - surely two of the most widely known and best-loved songs in the entire Reed solo canon. The album was a triumph and really served to establish Lou Reed as a solo artist of considerable stature internationally. Lou quickly followed up with the much darker-hued and heavily orchestrated rock opera Berlin and what became his highest-charting album, Sally Can't Dance, which reached the Top 10 in the USA. Subsequent records Metal Machine Music, the more accessible Coney Island Baby and Rock And Roll Heart were not as well-received, before 1978's Street Hassle marked a strong return to form, with AllMusic's Mark Deming described the record as "among the most powerful and compelling albums he released during the 1970s, and too personal and affecting to ignore.

'Some of these tracks may contain jazz, rock, rhythm n blues, Americana, and/or other less-well-defined genres- I'm not too sure. But what I am sure about is that PEARLS, represents the kind of music that s been around me, and inspiring me for years. So if, dear listener, a couple of these tunes strike an agreeable chord in you, then, job done!' Chris Spedding

Suzanne Vega - Live at the Speakeasy CD $14.98
This superb broadcast captures Suzanne Vega at an early but pivotal moment in her rapid rise to world renown. The concert, at New York's intimate but influential SpeakEasy club in Greenwich Village, was performed the week her eponymous debut album was released in April 1985. This beautifully rendered show is also of particular note because, unlike at her later gigs, Suzanne appears entirely solo. Although born in Santa Monica, California, in 1959, Suzanne Vega spent almost all of her formative years in the frenetic environs of New York City. In the early 1980's, she began to perform at Greenwich Village's smaller venues, such as the Cornelia Street Cafe - then a hotbed of aspiring writers, poets and folk performers. It was there she hooked up with Jack Hardy's songwriters' co-operative and consequently had some of her earliest recordings released on vinyl albums under the auspices of the small-circulation Fast Folk Musical Magazine. Several of the songs that were first issued on these relatively obscure anthologies between February 1982 and May 1985, are reprised in this evening's set. With high quality songwriting like this on display, it is little surprise that Suzanne was soon signed by a major label, A&M Records. Her debut album was recorded during the first months of 1985 at Celestial Sound Studios in New York. With the exception of Tom's Diner and Gypsy - all the above mentioned songs were re-recorded for inclusion on her debut. Tonight's performance includes that outstanding album in its entirety, and thus there are also live versions of Freeze Tag, Marlene On The Wall, Undertow, Straight Lines and Neighborhood Girls. Her eponymous debut was a critical success in the USA and reached number 91 on the Billboard 200 chart and in the UK it reached number 11, with the record eventually achieved platinum status. This delightful recording broadcast remains a timely reminder of where it all began, back in the bohemian environs of New York's Greenwich Village.

Evergrey - Hymns for the Broken CD $17.98
Limited Edition digipak. Three and a half years after 'Glorious Collision', acclaimed Swedish metallers Evergrey return with their brand new piece of work HYMNS FOR THE BROKEN. As is tradition for the band, none of their albums does sound like the other - but they all have the typical Evergrey trademarks: energetic riffs, strong melodies, clever arrangements, dark poetry and Tom S. Englund's unique voice towering above it all.

Mix and mastering this time was handled by Jacob Hansen (Volbeat, Pretty Maids, Amaranthe, Primal Fear) who undoubtedly made it the best sounding Evergrey album ever.

Bryan Ferry - Avonmore CD $14.98
After his beguiling detour into "The Jazz Age" and a significant contribution to Bazz Luhrmann's hit film of "The Great Gatsby", Ferry returns to the present day with a compelling collection of eight brand new compositions and two intriguing covers. Johnny Marr , Nile Rodgers and Marcus Miller feature throughout the album, together with a shifting cast including Flea, Ronnie Spector, Mark Knopfler and Maceo Parker. From the darkly driven title track, through to the contemplative "Soldier Of Fortune", from the swirling groove of "One Night Stand" to the dreamlike first single "Loop De Li" - 'Avonmore' is both contemporary and classic. The two covers are unique Ferry musical interpretations - a beautiful and lush take on Sondheim's "Send In The Clowns" and Robert Palmers "Johnny and Mary", a collaboration with the Norwegian DJ and producer Todd Terje, transformed into a melancholic hymn to love and loss.

Flying Burrito Brothers - Seattle Pop Festival July 29th 1969 CD $17.98

2014 instrumental album from the Electronic Music pioneer.

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.

Burnt Friedman & Daniel Dodd-Ellis - Cease to Matter CD $15.98

Robert Fripp & Brian Eno - Live in Paris May 28, 1975 CD $23.98
Three CD live archive release. Much bootlegged, though never heard in even reasonable audio quality, this concert - one of a handful undertaken for Fripp & Eno in 1975 - is routinely described as "legendary". Hearing the tapes in fully restored audio quality, it's easy to understand why it attracts such reverence now and perhaps, why the shows attracted such hostility then. No Roxy Music hits, No King Crimson riffs, just a duo sitting in near darkness with a reel to reel tape recorder, improvising over the pre-recorded loops with a filmed background projection. Replace the reel to reel machine with a couple of laptops/iPads/sequencers and the core of much current live performance from Electronica to Hip Hop was there some 30 years in advance. At the time, audiences responded to such a glimpse of the future with booing, walkouts and general confusion. Thanks to the discovery and restoration of the original backing tapes, it was possible - with much painstaking restoration work by Alex Mundy at DGM - to isolate, de-noise and match the live elements from the performance tapes to the studio loops to produce the final recording.

Bill Frisell - Guitar in the Space Age CD $14.98
For this 2014 album, GUITAR IN THE SPACE AGE, guitarist and composer Bill Frisell mines the catalog of guitar-based music from the '50s and '60s that first inspired him to pick up the instrument. Joining Frisell for this album of musical memories are the members of his working trio, bassist Tony Scherr and drummer Kenny Wollesen, along with frequent collaborator Greg Leisz, a master of the lap and pedal steel guitars. This superb quartet explores the music of Pete Seeger, The Byrds, Junior Wells, Dick Dale, The Ventures, The Astronauts, Chet Atkins, Merle Travis and others with Frisell's own compositions sprinkled in. The album offers a rare look into Frisell's formative influences, from a time when the electric guitar was in its infancy and creating a startlingly new sound, pushing popular music into the future.

Magma - Riah Sahiltaahk CD $15.98
French prog legends MAGMA have signed to Jazz Village. Over the next 18 months the label will release new works as well as undertaking a major vinyl re-issue programme. The first release is a dramatic reworking of the epic track R´ah Sah´ltaahk - now available as a mini-album on CD and LP. R´ah Sah´ltaahk, the Koba´an who set out after the others despite their disapproval, who considered himself superior, who thought he could convert the enemies of Koba´a to the Koba´an spirit. But he failed, and wound up alone. On the allegorical stopover planet of Malaria he confronts the full fury of the elements, imagining he will emerge triumphant. His ship almost completely submerged, he is finally forced to implore the elements for mercy but to no avail. He disappears, drowned, swept away in a storm of elemental trance. After the clamor... silence. History and Context: The original version of R´ah Sah´ltaahk formed Side 1 of the group's second album 1001░ Centigrades, recorded in 1971. At the time Christian Vander was unhappy with the arrangement written by the group, and indeed the line-up changed after the album's release. This radically new version, adapted to suit the group s current line-up and classical voices, is more faithful to the spirit of Magma s music and its uniquely weird and wonderful nature.

Patrick O'Hearn - Beautiful World CD $13.98
Reissue of this 2003 album from the acclaimed musician. Bassist and synthesist Patrick O'Hearn began his career backing up music wizard Frank Zappa in the 1970s before forming the new-wave band Missing Persons in the early '80s and later striking out on his own. On Beautiful World, Patrick paints a picture that embraces the dank, fecund undergrowth where life is formed. His music is textural, roiling with atmosphere, but not buried in it. Taking a cue from Erik Satie simplicity, O'Hearn employs melody sparingly, as if he's hoarding the last bottle of water in the Sahara. Which makes it all the more powerful when he finally deploys it creating the crescendo of the title track.

Patrick O'Hearn - Glaciation CD $13.98

Metaphor is a fine testament to O'Hearn's talent for songwriting. He deftly layers his ambient pieces with blankets of lulling rhythm or washes before tucking a soft melody into the cotton of airy synth and chiming sequences. If you've checked out Tangerine Dream, if you've checked out Steve Roach, and are now wondering where to go from here, give Patrick O'Hearn a listen; he may be your next favorite electronic artist.

Patrick O'Hearn - Slowtime CD $13.98

The album is largely generated by analog electronics, each piece a study in timbral flux and ambient design.

Patrick O'Hearn - So Flows the Current CD $13.98
Reissue of this 2001 album from the acclaimed musician.

2014 release from the Alt-Rock veterans. The definitive Primus line-up-Les Claypool, guitarist Larry LaLonde and drummer Tim Alexander - is back together for this release; their first full length studio set in nearly 20 years. ''Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory starring Gene Wilder was very important to me as a kid and very influential to me musically. 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."

Sun Ra & His Intergalactic Research Arkestra - It's After the End of the World CD $16.98
I play space music. When one day humans on far away planets hear the sounds of cosmic beings, the music will seem familiar, for while they were on Earth they had heard Sun Ra. Herman Poole Blount, the ex-Fletcher Henderson pianist, changed his name to Sun Ra and formed an Intergalactic Research Arkestra. The myth-driven, avant-garde big band, which also incorporated elements of Duke Ellington and Count Basie, divided the jazz world. It wasnt just the music that caused the uproar: Sun Ras musical commune drew in dancers and fire-eaters, and the band performed in outlandish costumes. Sun Ra could thank the benediction of Germanys jazz authority Joachim-Ernst Berendt for the black jazz gurus invitations to the 1970 Donaueschinger Jazz Days as well as the Berlin Jazz Festival. This MPS Album was produced from the recordings of these concerts. They are certainly a documentation of jazz history; with an unusual instrumentation, the 21 piece band creates noises and percussive sounds that are, and remain, out of this world.

The Doors - Feast of Friends DVD $16.98
FEAST OF FRIENDS, filmed in 1968, was the first and only film produced about The Doors by The Doors. It offers a cinematic look at The Doors on the road during their summer 68 tour. While never truly completed, the film provides a stylistic approach in true sixties cinema verite style. Concert performances are intercut with fly-on-the-wall footage of the group in their natural habitat, sometimes playful, sensitive, chaotic and touching. Other than a few appearances in film festivals in 1968, an official release would never be seen until now. Completely restored from the original negative, as supervised by Jim Morrison, the film has been color corrected and cleaned in high definition with the soundtrack totally remixed and remastered by long-time Doors collaborator Bruce Botnick.

As ever with Genesis, the show is visually stunning and it captures the band in their transition from their progressive days in the seventies through to the hugely successful pop/rock act they became from the mid-eighties onwards.

=====Import CDs=====

Mick Abrahams - Best of Aby 2 CD $24.95
It is a story as old as time itself. I'm sure that it predates rock'n'roll, but it is a paradigm which has appeared so many times within the canon of the sort of bands that I have spent the last four decades listening to, but it hardly bears repeating. Except, of course, that I must - because without the back story the extraordinary tale of Blodwyn Pig would just be another rags to... well, if not exactly riches, then slightly more expensive rags.

Captain Beefheart & His Magic Band - Commodore Ballroom Vancouver 1981 CD $24.95
Don Van Vliet (born Don Glen Vliet; January 15, 1941 December 17, 2010) was an American musician, singer-songwriter, artist and poet known by the stage name Captain Beefheart. His musical work was conducted with a rotating ensemble of musicians called the Magic Band (1965-1982), with whom he recorded 13 studio albums. Noted for his powerful singing voice with its wide range, Van Vliet also played the harmonica, saxophone and numerous other wind instruments. His music blended rock, blues and psychedelia with avant-garde and contemporary experimental composition. Beefheart was also known for exercising an almost dictatorial control over his supporting musicians, and for often constructing myths about his life.This extraordinary record catches the Captain at his best; live on stage in 1981. Someone who was in the audience that night later wrote: "The Captain Beefheart show was beyond my expectations, it washed over us with a magic gumbo of free-jazz, swampy blues, avante garde squawking and punky insolence. We loved it. We didn't know what it was, but we loved it. Captain Beefheart was at least twice as old as most of us in the room, but that wasn't an issue, not in the least. It rocked our world."

Chicken Shack - Ok Ken CD $25.95

Devo - Miracle Witness (Live in Ohio 1977) CD $29.95

Dr. John - Anutha Zone & Duke Elegant CD $29.95
Digitally remastered two CD set containing a pair of albums from iconic New Orleans singer/songwriter Mac Rebennack AKA Dr. John. By the end of the '90s, Dr John was again embracing the mysterious bubbling gumbo of his Gris-Gris era, which was music to the ears of a generation of younger British musicians such as Paul Weller, Gaz Coombes of Supergrass and Jason Pierce of Spiritualized. While Pierce is credited with producing two tracks here, the lion's share of ANUTHA ZONE was helmed by UK producer legend John Leckie. Although much of the album was recorded in New York in 1998, six tracks were recorded at Abbey Road, with guest appearances from the UK stars above. The following year saw Dr John pay his respects to the music of Duke Ellington - like he says: ''Doesn't sound like these tunes were written by a hundred year-old cat, but they were. You want to know the ticket to immortality, write a bunch of tunes that people keep on singin' and playin'''

Dr. John - Creole Moon & N'awlins CD $29.95
Digitally remastered two CD set containing a pair of albums from iconic New Orleans singer/songwriter Mac Rebennack AKA Dr. John. With Cajun guests Sonny Landreth and Michael Doucet and arrangements by Fred Wesley, CREOLE MOON featured four co-writes with songwriting legend Doc Pomus, and is, in Dr John's words, ''a collection of tunes so close to my heart that I feel strongest about - a personal interpretation of New Orleans, and each song is a story or a vignette''. N'AWLINZ: DIS DAT OR D'UDDA is a further tribute to the city, helmed this time by legendary producer Stewart Levine. Rebennack had both a desire to celebrate and pay back the many musicians who had given him the music he loved, and had taken the time to show him how to do it too. The album features a who's who of those talents, most notably the indefatigable Mavis Staples, B.B. King, Cyril Neville, plus wild card guests like Willie Nelson, and Randy Newman.

Electric Flag - Best of Electric Flag / An American Music Band CD $20.95
The Electric Flag was an American Blues Rock band formed and led by guitarist Mike Bloomfield along with Barry Goldberg on keyboards, and Buddy Miles on drums.

Les Paul also made his mark as the man responsible for inventing the solid base electric guitar - a design which he had made at his own expense by Gibson. He was also into experimenting in the studio with various recording techniques with overdubbing/multi-tracking and an echo chamber. His guitar playing was to be a massive influence on guitarist from the '50s, '60s and beyond. These EXTENDED PLAY sides will evoke nostalgic memories, not only from the music of the day but fond memories of the EP's they came from.

Cirque Surreal - Originally released in 1995 this album is considered a true treasure in Rick Wakeman's vast catalogue and has been unavailable for some time.

The album's musical director is also a well known name to many Rick Wakeman fans Rick's son Adam Wakeman.

The concert features many of the songs that have become favourites with Rick's fan base over the last thirty plus years including an edited version of Journey To The Centre Of The Earth alongside Catherine Parr and even a couple of Yes Tracks in Starship Trooper and Wurm.

Galahad - Guardian Angel (Extended Play) CDsngl $14.95
Following on from the release of two critically acclaimed full length albums in 2012 (Battle Scars and Beyond the Realms of Euphoria) and the recent release of the 'Seize the Day' EP, Galahad are proud to announce their second release of 2014, the 'Guardian Angel' EP. This release contains a stripped down version of the title track featuring only piano, vocal and strings, which shows a more sensitive side to the band. A Guardian Angel 'Hybrid' has also been included which contains elements of the original track and parts taken from 'Guardian Angel - Reprise' melded together to create a more organic and distinctly different version. The EP which also contains the original album versions of 'Guardian Angel' and 'Guardian Angel - Reprise' also features a piano and vocal version of 'Beyond the Barbed Wire', the full original band version of which appears on the 'Battle Scars' album. The 'Guardian Angel' EP will be available as a download from the band's website as well as from several digital on-line platforms such as I-tunes, CD Baby, Amazon etc. It will also be available, as a limited edition CD EP, directly from the merchandise section of the Galahad website. As with the previous 'Seize the Day' EP we hope that this release will appeal to existing fans of the band as well as those who are intrigued and interested in the band but have yet to dip their toes in to the murky world of Galahad music.

Galahad - Mein Herz CDsngl $14.95
Following on from the release of two EP's earlier in the year Galahad are pleased to announce their third and final EP of 2014, 'Mein Herz Brennt', which completes the trilogy of releases for the year. This particular offering contains four differing versions of Mein Herz Brennt, ranging from an atmospheric laid back piano, vocal and violin interpretation to the full on industrial metallic blast of the 'fully loaded' version. What started out as just a bit of fun jamming a in the rehearsal studio eventually morphed in to several fully fledged versions of this 'Rammstein' classic. The track was recorded and mixed by the rather wonderful Karl Groom at Thin Ice Studios in Surrey. 'Mein Herz Brennt' will be available as a limited edition CD EP, directly from the merchandise section of the Galahad website. It will also be available to download from the band's website as well as from the usual digital on-line platforms such as I-tunes, CD Baby, Amazon etc. As with the previous 'Seize the Day' and 'Guardian Angel' releases we hope that this EP will appeal to existing fans of the band as well as those who are intrigued and interested in the band but have yet to dip their toes in to the murky and varied world of Galahad music, even if this particular release contains, at times, unusual cover versions of a Rammstein track!

Gasoline Band - Gasoline Band: Remastered Edition CD $26.95
Digitally remastered edition of the super rare and now classic self-titled Progressive/Jazz Rock album by The Gasoline Band. The group came together in Berlin in 1969 when two Americans, keyboard player Fred Schwartz and trumpeter (and US Army bandsman) Larry "Fish" Brown came together to form a group that would fuse the influences of rock and jazz. By 1970 Schwartz had assembled an ensemble of ten musicians, all hailing from a US military service background. Stylistic differences caused the band to come apart, but the Gasoline Band was the result. After playing concerts in Germany, Schwarz was offered a contract by Cube Records and in 1971 the various members of the band left the US Army and came to London to record their only self-titled album. A fine fusion of rock and jazz, The Gasoline Band was championed by Old Grey Whistle Test presenter Bob Harris but sadly failed to make any commercial impact. This reissue includes a booklet that fully restores the original album artwork and a new essay.

Goblin - Beyond the Darkness 1977-01 / O.S.T. CD $22.95
2014 collection from the Italian outfit. 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.

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 Theatre des Champs ElysÚes 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.

The innovative musician has continually experimented with other artists' music over the last 60 years and this new album takes his interpretations to new levels. Manfred uses his talents to provide different takes on well-known anthems of modern rock and pop, such as 'Light My Fire', 'We Will Rock You' and 'Nothing Compares To You' as well as using other people's samples of his own tracks: Kanye West sampled 'You Are - I Am' on his track 'So Appalled' and in return Manfred has completely rearranged and changed the track which now appears as 'Hands In The Air'. He has also improvised and played over the tracks by The Prodigy and Disco Boys, adding to them. By his own admission, Manfred has recorded hugely familiar songs as a challenge. He says "I chose the songs deliberately as a challenge to alter these tunes and to change elements freely, leaving sections out because the listener's mind fills in the missing bits."

Travis & Fripp - Discretion CD $25.95

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.

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.

Various Artists - Shapes & Shadows: Psychedelic Pop / Var CD $26.95
2014 colleciton. Founded by highly successful songwriter Les Reed in 1968, the Chapter One label had a five-year run before eventually succumbing to the law of diminishing chart returns. Despite scoring a handful of hits (step forward Gerry Monroe and Leeds United F. C.), their most enduring releases have turned out to be a swathe of singles that met with little success at the time, but which are now in great demand amongst collectors of late '60s/early '70s UK Psychedelic Pop and associated genres. A few tracks have found their way onto unauthorized compilations over the last few years, but SHAPES AND SHADOWS - taken from the masters, and with the full co-operation of Les Reed and Chapter One - proudly assembles these recordings in one place for the first time. Complete with rare photos, quotes and the full story behind the various bands as well as the label itself, SHAPES AND SHADOWS is a fascinating look at the soft white underbelly of the British pop industry during the late '60s/early '70s as well as an essential listen for genre aficionados.

Rick Wakeman - 1984/ Out There CD $24.95
Two CD set containing a pair of albums from the British Prog keyboardist.

The album features vocal performances from Jon Anderson, Kenny Lynch, Chaka Khan, Steve Harley and Tim Rice who also provided the lyrics throughout. This album is one of the few Rick Wakeman albums never to receive an official commercial release on CD. OUT THERE was originally released in 2003 and considered by many to be the true follow up album to NO EARTHLY CONNECTION from 1976. The album features Rick alongside The New English Rock Ensemble. The album is a true Progressive Rock masterpiece and was hailed at the time of release as being one of Rick Wakeman's best albums and was supported at the time by an extensive British tour taking in almost 50 dates in 50 days.

Bob was so impressed with the band that he helped secure them a contract with Atlantic Records. Wally recorded their debut album with Bob Harris producing and Rick Wakeman acting as executive producer. Once the record was released the band embarked on a series of live dates including a high profile appearance at the Crystal Palace Garden Party supporting Rick Wakeman who had recently left Yes and was presenting his Journey To The Centre of The earth Show. VALLEY GARDENS was the bands second album, released in 1975. By this time Nick Glennie-Smith had replaced Peter Gerret on keyboards.

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).

Hi, folks,

Today's newsletter is a continuation of the Anonymous Collection Sale. 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 his proceeds to charity. In his mother's memory, part of that will go to the American Cancer Society. Also benefiting will be the St. Jude Children's Reasearch Hospital and the Unicef International Children's Fund.

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, you'll notice we still have quite a way to go before we reach the end of the alphabet!!! Below is a list of books, DVDs 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.
