XTC/English Settlement ....import CD $19.99

With its distinctive cover depiction of the Uffington White Horse and its more prominent use of acoustic guitar, XTC's 1982 studio release was immediately hailed as a significant departure for the band and a future masterpiece.  While looking for the (still 'lost in the archives') multi-track tapes to enable Steven Wilson to undertake new stereo and 5.1 surround mixes of the album, the original half-inch master tapes were discovered and used as the source from which engineer John Dent has prepared this 2016 'original master edition'.  An album which set standards on its release sounds, if anything, even better now.

Ghost Medicine/Discontinuance ....import CD $22.99

Ghost Medicine/Discontinuance ....import CD $22.99

Driven by a need to communicate the indescribable, and drawing on influences ranging from Vaughan Williams to Sigur Ros and Nick Drake, to Meshuggah, Discontinuance is the debut album from Ghost Medicine (the working name of virtuoso Georgia based guitarist and composer Jared Leach).  Consisting of seven tracks that explore themes relating to the complex nature of human experience, Discontinuance is an astonishingly mature statement.  Demonstrating a deep knowledge of alternate tunings and guitar effects, Leach's expressive guitar work alternates between sensitive layered finger picked acoustic guitars and fiery electric solos.  Featuring drummer Scott Prian, bass player extraordinaire Colin Edwin (Porcupine Tree/ORk/Tim Bowness) and additional vocals from Sarah Hoefer, Discontinuance is a superb introduction to a potentially major talent.

Nosound/Scintilla ....import CD + Blu-Ray $29.99

Nosound/Scintilla ....import CD + Blu-Ray $29.99

After a decade of crafting a very particular type of widescreen melancholia and wistful imagery, Nosound's fifth studio album Scintilla introduces a wholly new musical and visual approach for Giancarlo Erra's ever-evolving band.  Inspired by personal upheaval and a desire for change, Scintilla is an emotionally complex and musically direct work presenting a stripped-down set of compositions that mark a major departure from Nosound's trademark symphonic lushness and production precision.  Taking in influences from post rock, shoegaze and alt-singer-songwriters, the album imaginatively utilizes a mostly organic and acoustic sound palette.  Musically looser and more sonically intimate than the band's previous releases, Scintilla's emphasis is placed firmly on feeling rather than technique.  Anathema's Vincent Cavanagh lends his distinctive vocals to two of the album's tracks, and cellist Marianne De Chastelaine returns once more to the Nosound fold (this time in a more free-flowing and improvisational capacity). Acclaimed Italian singer Andrea Chimenti co-writes and sings on the serene Sogno E Incendio.  Shifting from the uncharacteristic sarcasm of Love Is Forever and potent anger of The Perfect Wife to the dreamy sensitivity of Emily and the unusually uplifting Celebration of Life, Scintilla represents the boldest statement of Nosound's career so far.  A cathartic album of emotional extremes, Scintilla marks the brave beginning of the second phase of Nosound's fascinating career.  Deluxe CD/Blu-Ray in Mediabook with a 24 page booklet. The Blu-Ray contains HD 5.1 & stereo surround sound 24/96 lossless mixes, plus additional video content.

Astarta Edwin/Astarta Edwin ....import CD $24.99

astarta.jpg (10818 bytes)

An unusual pairing of bass player Colin Edwin with the close harmonies and distinctive Slavic vocals of top Ukrainian duo Astarta.  This collaborative, eponymous debut release was born out of a chance encounter whilst Colin Edwin was visiting Kiev to perform with his duo Ex-Wise Heads in early 2012.  Astarta/Edwin developed their sound throughout the recording process which was also aided by input from some remarkable and gifted musicians, namely US experimental/ambient guitarist Jon Durant, UK violin phenomenon Steve Bingham (No-Man) and legendary US drummer Pat Mastelotto (King Crimson).   Colin explains, "Whilst working on the Astarta/Edwin material, I purposely stayed away from attempting any sort of interpretation of the lyrics, instead remaining in wilful ignorance of the actual lyrical content. The Ukrainian language remains a mystery to me, so my focus was always on supporting the twin vocals and trying to create a sympathetic musical content to wrap around and highlight them."  Kicking off with the propulsive Pid Yalinoyu, Astarta/Edwin travel through an inviting collection of songs, ranging from the uplifting Orel (aided by inventive guitar work from Durant), via the mysterious atmospheric dub of Oy U Lisi, to the fragile, haunting acoustic ballad Kolisanka.

Anekdoten/From Within ....import CD $21.99 Anekdoten/Gravity ....import CD $21.99 Anekdoten/A Time of Day ....import CD $21.99

With its brooding King Crimson influenced and Mellotron dominated sound, Anekdoten are regarded as one of the most important Scandinavian progressive rock bands of the last two decades.  Vemod, Anekdoten's debut from 1993, shows the band a little rougher, more Gothic in tone, and less tonally subtle than in later years, but compelling nonetheless.  From the crashing bass and Mellotron in the opening track Karelia, it's clear that the spirit of King Crimson reigns over this work.  Nucleus, Anekdoten's second album from 1995, was an uncompromising, grungy and distorted affair. Some found it too heavy and extreme, while others found the album to be a major leap forward for the band. Regardless, Nucleus confirmed the Anekdoten's status within the prog community and is considered a cult album by many of the band's fans.  This is the remastered edition with bonus track and enhanced packaging from 2004.  On From Within, Anekdoten's third album from 1999, the band moved away from the 1970's influenced progressive rock of its predecessors towards a more contemporary sound.   Anekdoten reentered the darkness with a mature and confident release that has become many fan's favourite recording by the band.  Sometimes sweet, acoustic and psychedelic, and sometimes atmospheric, Gravity, Anekdoten's fourth album from 2003, succeeds in mixing Anekdoten's traditional style with more contemporary influences.  Mellotron meets Farfisa organ!  On A Time Of Day, the fifth Anekdoten album from 2007, Anekdoten plunge even deeper into its own uncompromising universe.  Progressive Rock at its most intense and wonderful!

EP ONE is the 2016 Kscope label debut for former Mansun frontman Paul Draper.  The EP features three tracks: Feeling My Heart Run Slow - a thundering juggernaut of a revenge rock n roll song; No Ideas - a mind-expanding spy movie soundtrack condensed into just under six minutes (and featuring Steven Wilson), and The Silence is Deafening - a gleaming pop song that perfectly melds together glacial synths and soaring guitar-bass-drums.   The EP also features an alternate mix of Feeling My Heart Run Slow by Andy MacFarlane of Scottish band The Twilight Sad.  The tracks on EP ONE were recorded at Paul's studio The Kitchen. No Ideas was recorded with Steven Wilson (who played bass, acoustic and electric guitar, Moog, Mellotron and Prophet synths on the track).

Hugh Hopper & Alan Gowen/Two Rainbows Daily ....CD $16.99

Two Rainbows Daily is a reissue of a long out of print classic from 1980 from these two fine composers and insrumentalists (keyboards and bass). While rich in sound due to overdubs, this doesn't have a full band sound, and this rather stripped-down approach makes for an "intimate" release filled with crafty melodies and subtle tonal colors. Mastered directly off the master tapes it sounds terrific; finally! No vinyl crackle! As a bonus there is 20' of extra live material and excellent liner notes by Hugh, which tell the story of this disc. Absolutely a "Canterbury" classic.

Formed in 2009, the band - Courtney Swain (vocals/keyboards), Ben Levin (guitar/vocals), Chris Baum (violin, vocals), Jessica Kion (bass/vocals), Gavin Wallce-Ailsworth (drums) and Vince Welch (synth/sound design) - combines immense depth and musicality with enthralling melody and arrangement. Touring constantly and reaching new converts nightly, Bent Knee is high art for the masses.

Claudia Quintet/Super Petite ....CD $16.99

Claudia Quintet/Super Petite ....CD $16.99

Short doesn't necessarily mean simple. Drummer-composer John Hollenbeck acrobatically explores the dichotomy between brevity and complexity on Super Petite, the eighth release by the critically-acclaimed, proudly eccentric Claudia Quintet. The oxymoronic title of the new album, captures the essence of its ten new compositions, which pack all of the wit and virtuosity that listeners have come to expect from the Claudia Quintet into the time frame of radio-friendly pop songs. As always, Hollenbeck's uncategorizable music - which bridges the worlds of modern jazz and new music in surprising and inventive ways - is realized by Claudia's long standing line-up: clarinetist/tenor saxophonist Chris Speed, vibraphonist Matt Moran, bassist Drew Gress, and accordionist Red Wierenga. Over the course of 19 years and 8 albums, the band has forged an astounding chemistry and become expert at juggling mind-boggling dexterity with inviting emotion and spirit.The concept was both a personal challenge for Hollenbeck as a composer always dealing with a wealth of ideas, but also a reaction to a tendency in modern music toward the epic. "I'm feeling things in the opposite direction," the composer explains. "When tunes are longer, there tend to be moments when not a whole lot is happening. If you have a really short tune, the whole thing has to be compelling." Speaking of compelling, the release comes with a fat, 20 page color booklet, filled with unusual artwork

Deus Ex Machina/Devoto ....CD $16.99

Devoto (`Devoted`) is the ninth album by Italy's Deus Ex Machina in a 30 year-long career. Founded in 1985 and bursting out of Bologna with their initial release in 1991, by the time they released their second, self-titled album in 1993, the group's line-up was exactly the same as it is today! Featuring the powerful and soaring vocals of Alberto Piras, the band is a unique blend of classic hard rock and avant-garde tendencies, having a big, heavy sound (not 'crunchy' but 'heavy') that is as equally influenced by Led Zeppelin as the Mahavishnu Orchestra. No one else sounds like Deus Ex Machina.

I.P.A./I Just Did Say Something ....CD $16.99

I.P.A./I Just Did Say Something ....CD $16.99

Maybe it's the region's boundless but stark natural beauty or its internationally envied social order, but whatever the cause Scandinavia has nurtured a particularly vivid jazz scene marked by a tantalizing balance of form and freedom. Over the past decade the quintet I.P.A. has come to embody the best of this volatile sensibility, which makes sense as the band draws its players from definitive Nordic ensembles such as Atomic, Motif, Ensemble Denada, Trondheim Jazz Orchestra, and The Thing. This is I.P.A.'s fourth release and their first to be released outside of Scandinavia. The quintet's most exhilarating statement yet, it's the work of a band fully alive to its own power, while eagerly investigating new directions. I.P.A. is strongly influenced by the seminal 1960s work of Don Cherry and Ornette Coleman. Harmonically unfettered, rhythmically unpredictable and melodically unvarnished, the quintet thrives on live-wire interaction with rapidly intersecting lines that swoop and collide, disentangle and divide. "We have melodies, but not really structured melodies," says Nymo, one of the band's primary composers. "We're definitely influenced by Don Cherry. I see us as part of this Scandinavian jazz scene, but we're open to influences from all over." I.P.A.'s origins go back to 2007 when Nymo, Flaten and Johansen released their electrifying interpretation of Don Cherry's classic 1966 Blue Note album Complete Communion. Broo joined forces with the triumvirate the following year and I.P.A. was born. The quartet introduced itself on Bolage with two critically hailed albums, 2009's Lorenaand 2011's It's A Delicate Thing. By 2014's Bubble, vibes master Mattias Stahl had expanded the band to a quintet. "Adding Mattias really opens up the possibilities," Nymo says. "He's a fantastic player, and helped us expand the colors and how we interact within the band." While all committed to an array of bands and projects, the five musicians in I.P.A. have found kindred exploratory spirits in the band. With I Just Did Say Something the combo has staked a larger claim, coming close to capturing the full creative breadth of this all-star ensemble. "We really cover a lot of ground," Nymo says. "That's something we realized while making this record. This is what we sound like now, but we're already off in new directions."

Rez Abbasi & Junction/Behind the Vibration ....CD $16.99

"Behind the Vibration is a collection of new music that seeks to answer the question: What might a modern jazz album sound like in the hands of contemporary musicians employing a breadth of influences and current technologies? More often than not, musicians I play with have developed a deep understanding of the jazz canon, yet also equally admire music vastly different than jazz. The members of Junction embody this epitome. Individually our present schedules include performing in a variety of settings from pop, heavy metal, electronica, Camatic, Indo-sub-Saharan African, qawwali, jazz and more. Junction is where it all meets. It is my most inclusive project to date in terms of engaging diverse musical influences and technology. For me, this is 'music of now.'" - Rez Abbasi

Esoteric Recordings are pleased to announce the release of a newly re-mastered and expanded edition of the classic 1971 album by Colosseum, "Colosseum Live." Originally released in June 1971 as double LP set housed in a sleeve designed by Marcus Keef, "Colosseum Live" spent six weeks on the UK album chart, peaking at number 17.  The album featured the "classic" Colosseum line-up of Jon Hiseman (drums), Dave Greenslade (organ & vibes), Dick Heckstall-Smith (saxophones), Dave "Clem" Clempson (guitar, vocals), Chris Farlowe (vocals) and Mark Clarke (bass). Recorded at concerts in Manchester and Brighton in March 1971, the album showcased the band at the peak of their powers on stage. "Colosseum Live" would also be the final album of the 1970s by the group. Four decades on, "Colosseum Live" remains one of the band's seminal releases, a fine combination of rock, jazz and blues.  This newly re-mastered and expanded reissue includes an extra CD of material recorded in Brighton, Manchester and Bristol in March 1971 (including a live version of their classic "Valentyne Suite"). It also features a booklet that fully restores the original album artwork and features a new essay.

Gary Wright's Wonderwheel/Ring of Changes [Remastered & Expanded] ....import CD $24.99

Esoteric Recordings are proud to announce the release of a genuine "lost" classic album from 1972, "Ring of Changes" by Gary Wright's Wonderwheel.   Following his departure from Spooky Tooth after the "Ceremony" album, Gary Wright participated in sessions for his friend George Harrison's classic album "All Things Must Pass" and enjoyed a solo career that culminated in him forming the band Wonderwheel. Originally featuring Mick Jones (guitar), Bryson Graham (drums) and Archie Leggett (bass), Wonderwheel was formed to enable Wright to promote his album "Extraction," and the group then participated on his second solo album "Footprint." In 1972 the band recorded "Ring of Changes" (with Tom Duffey replacing Leggett on bass guitar).  The album was a fine effort and arguably featured some of the finest material written and recorded by Wright to that date. The album would also feature the notable appearance of George Harrison on several tracks including 'Goodbye Sunday'. Gary's label, A&M Records elected to release 'I Know' as a single in 1972, but for reasons unclear, the release of "Ring of Changes" was shelved, leading Wright to participate in the recording of George Harrison's "Living in the Material World" and to reform Spooky Tooth soon after.  With full co-operation and involvement of Gary Wright, the original master tapes of "Ring of Changes" have been located and have been re-mastered in Hollywood by Gary himself. This first ever release of "Ring of Changes" sees the original album tracks restored in full, along with the addition of three bonus tracks. Forty four years on from its recording, one of Gary Wright's fine musical achievements can at last be experienced in full. This edition includes an illustrated booklet featuring an exclusive interview with Gary Wright.

Signing to producer Lou Reizner's production company, Three Man Army recorded their debut album for the newly established progressive imprint Pegasus. "A Third of a Lifetime" is a classic progressive rock album of the era that is now ripe for rediscovery, with tracks such as 'Together' featuring fine guitar work from Adrian Gurvitz, underpinned by a solid rhythm section and Mellotron keyboard.   From start to finish "A Third of a Lifetime" is an impressive listen.   This new, official release has been newly re-mastered from the original master tapes, features two bonus tracks originally released as a single in 1971 and includes a booklet with liner notes and fully restores the album artwork.

Steamhammer/Mountains [Remastered] ....import CD $24.99

Esoteric Recordings are pleased to announce the release of a newly re-mastered edition of the classic 1971 album by British progressive / blues rock band Steamhammer.   Formed in 1968 by Kieran White and Martin Quittenton, Steamhammer came to prominence on the second wave of the British blues boom of the late 1960s.  Their debut album was issued in 1968 and earned the band a loyal following which developed further thanks to their effective live performances. In Germany they became a popular concert attraction. Their second album "MK II" did much to enhance their reputation, but by this time, with line-up changes taking place, the band had moved into a more progressive direction, taking on board jazz influences.  By the close of 1970 Steamhammer had settled into a line-up of Keiran White (guitar, vocals), Martin Pugh (guitar), Steve Davy (bass, vocals) and Mick Bradley (drums). It was this line-up that recorded "Mountains" for the B&C label.  "Mountains" would feature seven original compositions and a cover version of 'Riding on the L&N.' Two of the album's eight tracks were recorded at the Lyceum in London.  This new, official release has been newly re-mastered and includes a booklet with liner notes and fully restores the album artwork.

Esoteric Recordings are pleased to announce the release of a newly re-mastered edition of the classic 1972 album by legendary Irish musician David McWilliams, "Lord Offaly."  David McWilliams first came to prominence with his 1967 classic 'The Days of Pearly Spencer' (later a hit for Marc Almond in 1992). The three albums McWilliams recorded for the Major Minor label in the late 1960s earned him a cult following and a well-deserved reputation as a songwriter. In the early 1970s he signed a contract with Pye Records newly established "progressive" label, Dawn Records, and would record three albums for the label. His first, released in 1972, was "Lord Offaly," arguably the finest of his work for Dawn.  The album was dominated by the epic title track, but featured a collection of well-crafted songs.  This new, official release has been newly re-mastered from the original Dawn master tapes and includes a booklet with liner notes and fully restores the album artwork.

Various Artists/I'm A Freak Baby: A Journey through the British Heavy Psych & Hard Rock Underground Scene 1968-72 ....import triple CD $27.99

From Esoteric's distributor, Cherry Red, housed in a clambox featuring a lavishly illustrated and annotated 36-page booklet, I'm A Freak, Baby is the most comprehensive and wide-ranging anthology to appear thus far of an underground scene that, in addition to being responsible for some magnificent music, also acted as a signpost to the subsequent emergence of British punk and heavy metal.  Although vintage British psychedelia is viewed by many these days as an Alice in Wonderland-style enchanted garden full of beatific flower children innocently gathering flowers or chasing butterflies, there was always a more visceral element to the scene. Pointedly free of such fripperies as scarlet tunic-wearing gnomes, phenomenal cats and talismanic bicycles, the power trio format that was popularised by the likes of Cream and the Jimi Hendrix Experience spawned a host of imitators. As the Sixties drew to a close and pop evolved slowly but inexorably into rock, psychedelia gave way to a sound that was harder, leaner, heavier, louder.  Across three discs and four hours of music, I'm A Freak, Baby: A Journey Through The British Heavy Psych And Hard Rock Underground Scene 1968-72 investigates that largely under-documented period, incorporating everything from some of the biggest names in the burgeoning hard rock/proto-metal firmament (Deep Purple, Uriah Heep) all the way down to a significant number of provincial semi-pro bands who gigged extensively but were unable to land a recording contract during their lifetime.  We feature some of British rock's pioneering acts (The Yardbirds, The Move), a handful of bands who travelled far beyond their blues boom roots (Fleetwood Mac, Chicken Shack, The Groundhogs), the infamous Ladbroke Grove scene (The Deviants, The Pink Fairies, Hawkwind, The Edgar Broughton Band), a smattering of inspired, where-the-hell-did-that-come-from one-shots like The Velvet Frogs and the mighty Egor, and a clutch of previously-unreleased recordings (The Kult, Hellmet, The Phoenix) that have even eluded the specialist reissue companies and bootleggers.

From Esoteric's distributor, Cherry Red, these Lalo Schifrin albums feature some of the greatest jazz musicians of the period including Eric Gale, Steve Gadd, Hubert Laws, Anthony Jackson & Joe Farrell to name but a few.  Lalo Schifrin has scored over one hundred & sixty movies including Bruce Lee's "Enter the Dragon," Clint Eastwood's "Dirty Harry" & Jackie Chan's "Rush Hour" trilogy as well as numerous TV show themes, but there is more to Lalo Schifrin.  Robinsongs is celebrating that fact with the release of two albums that Lalo Schifrin made for the legendary CTI label in the mid-seventies "Black Widow" and "Towering Toccata."  Lalo Schifrin puts a jazz funk vibe to some classic movie themes including Steven Spielberg's blockbuster "Jaws" which was released as a single and charted at 14 in the UK Singles chart, and became a worldwide Disco smash.   Schifrin's CTI debut "Black Widow" proved a hit as it landed at # 22 in the US list of jazz bestsellers, and it also appeared on the R&B chart. Buoyed by good sales and the encouraging public reception Schifrin returned to the studio to cut his second CTI album "Towering Toccata." Again there was plenty of effervescent disco-funk grooves plus big movie theme adaptations including "King Kong."   This package also features liner notes by Charles Waring, contributor to MOJO magazine & Record Collector.

As Steve says; "The Blues is a style of music that's intensely emotional and exciting. The music is the place where truly alive electric guitar sounds were first born. All the sonic developments that rock music inherited stem from that."  "Blues With a Feeling" demonstrated Steve Hackett's ability and affinity with the music form and was a very satisfying and entertaining excursion into a new genre for its creator.   This new release has been re-mastered from the original masters and is graced by two superb brand new bonus tracks, especially recorded for this reissue - On Cemetery Road and Patch of Blue.

Anthony Phillips/1984 [Remastered & Expanded Edition] ....import double CD + DVD $38.99

Esoteric Recordings are proud to announce the release of a newly re-mixed and expanded edition of the classic instrumental album by Genesis founder member Anthony Phillips, "1984."  Released in 1981, the album was born at the same time as Anthony was composing and recording the soundtrack to the British TV documentary series Rule Britannia.  "1984" was a radical departure from the more pastoral feel of Anthony's previous solo work, and saw him experiment with synthesisers to an extent he'd previously never done before, resulting in a keyboard dominated album.  At the time of release, the album divided opinions among some Anthony Phillips fans, but the passage of time has seen the album re-evaluated and it is now held in high esteem by fans, critics and musicians (including Steven Wilson), all of whom concur that "1984" now stands as a ground-breaking and influential work.  This new 3 disc digipack deluxe edition of the album features a new stereo mix and a 5.1 Surround sound mix, (on an NSTC / Region Free DVD), along with a CD of alternate mixes and out-takes. It includes a lavishly illustrated booklet that fully restores the original album artwork and features a new essay by Jon Dann (with a brief foreword text by Steven Wilson) and also includes a poster.

Recorded in December 1972 at The Rainbow Theatre in London (when Badger supported Yes on two shows that were filmed for the "Yessongs" concert movie).   The band were warmly received as an opening act and their live performances were well crafted, encouraging Atlantic Records to offer a contract to release the highlights of Badger's live set as a live album which was co-produced by Jon Anderson. "One Live Badger" featured material such as 'Wheel of Fortune,' 'Wind of Change' and 'On the Way Home' - fine tracks driven by Tony Kaye's Hammond organ and Mellotron playing - and was greeted with enthusiasm by the Yes fan fraternity.  This Esoteric Recordings edition is the first official UK CD release of the album and has been re-mastered from the original Atlantic Records master tapes. It includes a booklet featuring Roger Dean's original album artwork (officially reproduced for the first time) and an essay.

Gilli Smyth/Mother [Remastered Edition] ....import CD $24.99

Esoteric Recordings are proud to announce the release of a newly re-mastered edition of the classic 1978 album by Gong member Gilli Smyth, "Mother."  Comprised of recordings dating as far back as 1972 (some featuring Gong), "Mother" is arguably one of the finest albums in the wider Gong family. Described as "A psychedelic, spacey invocation of motherhood, an examination of gender roles and reincarnation," the album was mostly created in Mallorca by Gilli Smyth's then-partner and Gong visionary, Daveid Allen, who also played on the album.  The album also saw guest appearances from saxophonist Didier Malherbe, bassist Christian Tristch and drummer Pip Pyle among others. Featuring the customary Daevid Allen touch of imaginative edits and sound collages, "Mother" is a joy from beginning to end.   This new, official release has been newly re-mastered and includes a booklet with liner notes by Gong archivist and expert Jonny Greene.

Peter Baumann/Romance '76 [Remastered Edition] ....import CD $24.99 Peter Baumann/Trans Harmonic Nights [Remastered Edition] ....import CD $24.99

Esoteric Recording's Reactive label is pleased to announce newly remastered CD releases for the seminal German electronic & ambient musician Peter Baumann's solo albums, "Romance '76" and "Trans Harmonic Nights."  Peter Baumann came to prominence as a key member of Tangerine Dream, joining Edgar Froese and Chris Franke in the group in 1971 and making his debut on the album "Zeit." His contribution was felt on the classic Tangerine Dream albums released by Virgin Records issued between 1974 & 1976, "Phaedra," "Rubicon," "Ricochet" and "Stratosphere." In 1976 he embarked on a solo career with his classic work "Romance '76," recorded in July and August that year in Berlin and Munich. The result was a remarkable album that is now held in huge esteem by aficionados of German Electronic Music.  His next work as a solo artist was the equally remarkable and ground-breaking album "Trans Harmonic Nights," recorded in Berlin between July 1978 and January 1979, a release which pre-empted and influenced the protagonists of synthesiser based music that would burst forth in the 1980s.  Unavailable on CD for over twenty years, these Esoteric Recordings reissues are newly re-mastered and restore the original album artwork and includes booklets with new essays.

The Move/Something Else from the Move [Remastered & Expanded Live Edition] ....import CD $24.99

The Move/Something Else from the Move [Remastered & Expanded Live Edition] ....import CD $24.99

Esoteric Recordings are proud to announce the release of a newly expanded and re-mastered edition of the classic 1968 live recordings made by The Move at the legendary Marquee Club in London. Of all of the groups to emerge in Britain in the latter half of the 1960s, The Move was arguably one of the finest. A powerful act on stage, the group was blessed with one of the most imaginative songwriters of his generation in Roy Wood.   On 27th February 1968 the Move staged a concert at The Marquee Club with the intention of recording the concert for release as a live record. Due to technical issues, some of the material recorded was deemed to be unsuitable for release. In an attempt to rectify this, a further concert at The Marquee was recorded on 5th May. In the period between the first and second concert, Chris "Ace" Kefford had departed the fold, with guitarist Trevor Burton assuming bass guitar duties. After some repair work on five tracks, a seven-inch EP (playing at 33 rpm) was issued in June 1968 under the title "Something Else from the Move."  In 2007 the original multi-track master tapes were re-mixed and pieced together to present as full a record of The Move's Marquee performances as possible. Now these stereo tracks are gathered, along with the five mono mixes that formed the original 1968 EP on a CD version of "Something Else from the Move." The release is newly presented in a single digi-pack with illustrated booklet and liner notes.

The Move/Looking On [Expanded & Remastered Edition] ....import double CD $27.99

The Move/Looking On [Expanded & Remastered Edition] ....import double CD $27.99

Esoteric Recordings are proud to announce the release of a newly re-mastered and expanded edition of the classic 1970 album by The Move, "Looking On." Of all the Move albums, "Looking On" is probably the most experimental and progressive in its structure.  The departure of vocalist Carl Wayne in early 1970 and the arrival of Jeff Lynne in the ranks (from the acclaimed Idle Race) saw The Move take flight in previously unimagined ways. Lynne's compositional skills perfectly complimented Roy Wood's with his expansive track 'What?,' whilst Wood excelled himself on the album's title track and 'Feel Too Good,' along with the singles 'Brontosaurus' and 'When Alice Comes Back to the Farm.'  Newly re-mastered, this 2 CD Deluxe edition of "Looking On" has also been expanded to include 14 bonus tracks encompassing the single B-side 'Lightnin' Never Strikes Twice,' alternate mixes, and seven tracks and two interviews recorded for the BBC in 1970, all of which appear on CD for the first time. This expanded deluxe edition also includes a lavishly illustrated booklet that fully restores the original album artwork and features a new essay by Mark Paytress and also includes a poster.

Barclay James Harvest/Everyone Is Everybody Else [Deluxe Remastered & Expanded Edition] ....import double CD + DVD $38.99

Barclay James Harvest/Everyone Is Everybody Else [Deluxe Remastered & Expanded Edition] ....import double CD + DVD $38.99

Esoteric Recordings are proud to announce the release of a newly re-mastered and expanded edition of the classic 1974 album by Barclay James Harvest, "Everyone is Everybody Else." Originally released in June 1974, the album was the band's first for Polydor records and followed on from four albums recorded for EMI's Harvest label. The album has now come to be regarded as one of the band's finest, featuring such classic songs as 'Child of the Universe,' 'Crazy City,' 'For No One,' 'The Great 1974 Mining Disaster,' 'Negative Earth' and more.  "Everyone is Everybody Else" would also introduce the band to a much wider audience both in Britain and abroad and would lead to a highly successful series of albums that continue to endure.  This deluxe edition includes two CDs and a DVD, and features a new re-master of the original album mix, along with stunning brand new stereo and 5.1 surround mixes of the album (with the exception of 'For No One' - omitted due to the multi-track master tapes having long since vanished). The set also includes new stereo and 5.1 Surround sound mixes of a different version of 'Child of the Universe,' recorded in February 1975 for an American single release. The DVD (which is region free and NTSC) also includes 96 kHz / 24-bit stereo re-mixes. In addition there are five further bonus tracks comprising two early 1974 mixes of 'The Great 1974 Mining Disaster' and 'Negative Earth,' along with two alternate single versions of 'Child of the Universe.'  This expanded deluxe edition also includes a lavishly illustrated booklet that fully restores the original album artwork, a new essay and also includes a reproduction poster.

Gandalf/To Another Horizon [Remastered Edition] ....import CD $24.99

Gandalf/To Another Horizon [Remastered Edition] ....import CD $24.99

Esoteric Recordings are pleased to announce the release of a newly re-mastered edition of "To Another Horizon," the classic 1983 album by Austrian composer and multi-instrumentalist Gandalf (the pseudonym of Hans Strobl).  A true visionary, Gandalf enjoyed major European success with his unique style of instrumental progressive and ambient music, which has been compared with great multi-instrumentalists such as Mike Oldfield or Vangelis. "To Another Horizon" was recorded in 1982 and released early the following year. It was an album that took both environmental and political concerns of the era as the inspiration behind the concept of the work.  Unavailable for some years, "To Another Horizon" has been re-mastered for the first time from the original source masters. The booklet of this new edition features an exclusive new interview with Gandalf and fully restores the original album artwork.

Gandalf/Magic Theatre [Remastered Edition] ....import CD $24.99

Gandalf/Magic Theatre [Remastered Edition] ....import CD $24.99

Esoteric Recordings are pleased to announce the release of a newly re-mastered edition of "Magic Theatre," recorded and released in 1983 and followed on from Gandalf's successful album "To Another Horizon."  "The album "Magic Theatre" was inspired by the novel "Steppenwolf" by Herman Hesse" Gandalf would explain. "In the Magic Theatre of Hermann Hesse's story there is a corridor with several doors, each leading into different chambers of our subconscious, which is why each track on the album is portrayed as representing a different door."   Regarded by fans as one of his finest albums, "Magic Theatre" has been un-available for some years. This Esoteric Recordings edition has been re-mastered for the first time from the original source masters. The booklet of this new edition features an exclusive new interview with Gandalf and fully restores the original album artwork.

Jon Anderson & Roine Stolt/The Invention of Knowledge ....CD $16.99

Jon Anderson & Roine Stolt/The Invention of Knowledge ....CD $16.99

Anderson / Stolt, the brand new duo of legendary Yes singer/songwriter Jon Anderson and progressive rock veteran Roine Stolt (The Flower Kings, Transatlantic), have announced the impending release of their collaborative album 'The Invention of Knowledge' via InsideOut Music. The idea came to life swiftly off the back of a performance from Roine's band Transatlantic and Jon Anderson on the Progressive Nation at Sea Cruise in 2014, and was initially instigated by InsideOut Music label boss Thomas Waber. The duo set about crafting new music in the spirit of early epic works such as 'Tales from Topographic Oceans,' 'Awaken' & 'Olias Of Sunhillow,' but giving it a modern twist. Written & recorded over the course of one and a half years, the tracks have been in a state of constant change as Roine and Jon swapped & refined ideas by sending tracks to each other via the internet. In March 2015, an ensemble was put together by Roine to realise the music live in the studio. Joining him there was Tom Brislin (who played on the Yes Symphonic tour) & Lalle Larsson on keys, Jonas Reingold & Michael Stolt on bass and Felix Lehrmann on drums. The sessions were also bolstered by appearances from Daniel Gildenlow, Nad Sylvan, Anja Obermayer, Maria Rerych and Kristina Westas who all provided backing vocals. The full track-listing for the album is as follows: Knowing 17:45, Everybody Heals 13:20, Invention Of Knowledge 23:10, Know 11.20.

Karmakanic/Dot ....CD + DVD $18.99

Karmakanic/Dot ....CD + DVD $18.99

Karmakanic kicked off their career in 2002, and now, 14 years, four studio albums and two live albums later, they are back with their fifth full-length album, Dot.  The band's founder, bassist Jonas Reingold says: "I got my inspiration to start writing Dot when I stumbled upon a text by the famous American author and astronomer Carl Sagan. He was talking about how small and insignificant we are in this vast universe.  The inspiration for him was actually a picture of the earth that Voyager 1 took 1990 from the outer areas of our solar system. The earth appeared in the picture as a small pixel, like a pale blue dot suspended in a sunbeam.  It's fascinating to think that this little dot is all we are and all we'll ever be  It gives us perspective. And I think perspective is a great tool for making good choices. Honestly, is it worth fighting over country borders, go to war, choose hate instead of love when you look at life from this perspective? So I decided to write a song about it: 'God - the universe and everything else no one really cares about.'"  This song, presented in two parts, forms the centerpiece of Dot and clocks in just shy of 30 minutes. Other songs are the short rocker "Steer by the Stars," co-written with Jonas's old buddy and colleague from The Tangent, Andy Tillison. Andy also contributes with some roaring Hammond organ on the aforementioned 30-minute epic.  Also featured on the album is "Higher Ground," a "mini epic" where Jonas writes about his upbringing and the good and bad of growing up in a small Swedish town; and "Traveling Minds," a majestic symphonic piece that brings us back to the vibe of the Yes classic "And You and I."  Karmakanic 2016 includes prominent members such as Morgan Agren, a Grammy-winning musician on both sides of the Atlantic and known from his work with Frank Zappa, Kaipa, Steve Vai, Tony Iommy, Terry Bozzio, and was voted No. 1 in Modern Drummer's Readers Poll in 2010.  Goran Edman worked with Swedish stringbender Yngwie Malmsteen between 1990-1992, touring the world and recorded the album Fire and Ice, and Eclipse.   Lalle Larsson is a leading star on the progressive rock scene having recorded with artists such as Agents of Mercy, Jon Anderson, Gary Willis, and Randy Brecker. He has also released three albums with his own Lalle Larsson's Weaveworld.

Ayreon/The Theater Equation [Deluxe Edition] ....double CD + double DVD + Blu-Ray $79.99

Ayreon/The Theater Equation ....double CD + DVD $19.99

Ayreon is the brainchild of producer Arjen Lucassen and composed of a superstar cast of progressive rock musicians. Contributors include James LaBrie (Dream Theater) and Anneke van Giersbergen (solo artist, Devin Townsend Project, The Gentle Storm, ex-The Gathering). This is a truly special moment for Ayreon, as they had never performed live before in 20 years. The make up of the group consisted of too many active touring artists. Over the course of four sold-out shows in September 2015 Ayreon had their first and last ever performances. On the last night they filmed a performance of their legendary album 'The Human Equation' in Rotterdam.

The progressive metal supergroup - featuring Damian Wilson, Adam Wakeman, Lee Pomeroy (Steve Hackett, It Bites), Pete Rinaldi and Adam Falkner - return with the concept album All that You Fear Is Gone.  Described by Prog magazine as, 'One of the most engaging and exciting heavy prog bands,' All that You Fear Is Gone is a powerful work that reflects upon 'the inability of the group to control the individual.'

Three Trapped Tigers/Silent Earthling ....CD $16.99

Three Trapped Tigers/Silent Earthling ....CD $16.99

Three Trapped Tigers second album Silent Earthling is its first for the Superball label.  Shimmering sci-fi explorations and rich cinematic landscapes collide with pulsing electronics, mammoth riffs and pounding drums to make one of the most enjoyable and inventive instrumental rock albums of the decade.  Using Oblique Strategies, Brian Eno and Karl Hyde worked with the band during the album's writing stages (an experiment so successful that TTT's keyboard player Tom Rogerson is currently working on a collaborative album with Eno).  Emotionally rich and warm, yet also dystopian and haunted, Silent Earthling is both gracefully intelligent and wildly primal.

Haken/Affinity ....double CD $17.99

Haken/Affinity [Limited Edition] ....import double CD $29.99

Haken's fourth album sees the band drawing influence from the oft-neglected Progressive scene of the 1980s.  "The 1970s was a golden age for prog music," explains guitarist Charles Griffiths. "In the past we've taken a lot from bands of that era, especially Gentle Giant, but this time, we've gone more towards the next decade for our inspiration. It means albums like 90125 from Yes, Toto IV and King Crimson's Three of a Perfect Pair. We all love the sounds they used and we've incorporated some of that approach on Affinity."  Includes the 16 minute The Architect featuring Leprous vocalist Einar Solberg.

Spiritual Beggars/Sunrise to Sundown ....CD $16.99

Spiritual Beggars/Sunrise to Sundown ....CD $16.99

Traditionally, Spiritual Beggars albums always turn out a little bit different from their predecessors. Sunrise to Sundown is no exception, to the point that the album's diversity was a cause for concern for Amott.  "When we come together we sound a certain way, but it's definitely more diverse," Amott says of the album. "There are a couple songs that actually go back to the '90s era, very riff-oriented, no traditional song structure, and some longer songs. I was a little worried about that initially because I was wondering if it was going to make any sense to people. Listening to the mixes while on the road with Arch Enemy, it makes sense to me now. It sounds like Spiritual Beggars."  Spiritual Beggars is a long running success in spite of - or perhaps because of - Amott's ongoing full metal assault with Arch Enemy. He has always insisted that he would never do two bands that sound similar, and credits Spiritual Beggars for being the haven he can get his rocks off doing something totally different.

Long Distance Calling/Trips ....CD $16.99

Long Distance Calling/Trips ....CD $16.99

After releasing three highly successful albums, "Avoid the Light," "Long Distance Calling," "The Flood Inside," via SuperBall Music, Long Distance Calling have moved to InsideOut Music for future albums including their upcoming one, "Trips."  After working on "Trips" together with Vincent Sorg at Principal Studios the band is looking forward to breaking the news about the album as well as their new line-up: "Since he wanted to focus on his private life Martin 'Marsen' Fischer has decided to step back from Long Distance Calling, but he didn't leave without recording most of the keyboards and sound effects on 'Trips.' In true Long Distance Calling fashion we have another surprise up our sleeves and would like to introduce Petter Carlsen on vocals. About half of the new songs come with vocals and Petter did one hell of a job. We are really happy to have him on board for 'Trips!' In case his name rings a bell you are totally right: He already did vocals on the song 'Welcome Change' on the album 'The Flood Inside.' We are sure that you'll love the new stuff with him singing!"   Petter has the following to add about him doing the vocals on "Trips": "I instantly became a fan of Long Distance Calling the moment we met on tour with Anathema back in 2010 - both their music and their personalities. I am grateful that they made a long distance calling to Norway, asking me to join in on this album, and I am very proud to be a part of it. We had a great time at Principal Studios, it was a focused, relaxed and very creative atmosphere at the same time. It was a pleasure to add my color to these well-crafted songs."  Long Distnace Calling are already itching to present songs from "Trips" live: "More news and details about 'Trips' will follow shortly and we cannot wait to hit the road again and bring you some love! Florian, Dave, Jan & Janosch"

Messenger/Threnodies ....CD $16.99

Messenger/Threnodies [Special Edition] ....import CD $26.99

Messenger's 2016 studio release Threnodies is a deep and enthralling listen.  A modern day mix of Floyd-tinged progressive rock, hard rock and psychedelia.  Recorded during an intense three month period at North London's Orgone Studios, and with Gomez-Arellano handling production duties, Threnodies could not help but be coloured by world events that occurred during its completion, not least the tragic shootings in Paris of November 2015. And indeed the album title refers to hymns or prayers to the dead. It all adds a gritty realism to proceedings which merely enhances the overall impact of this remarkable achievement. Threnodies stands as a deep and enthralling listen. A modern day mix of progressive rock, hard rock and psychedelia that looks set to carry Messenger's remarkable journey ever onwards into the future...

Devin Townsend/Casualties of Cool ....double CD + DVD $19.99

Devin Townsend/Casualties Of Cool ....double CD + DVD $19.99

You may know Devin Townsend as the founder of Strapping Young Lad, or as part of Steve Vai's Sx & Religion, but you can forget all that for now. Casualties of Cool is an escape from over 20 years of relentless productivity and of the pre-conceptions surrounding his work.  A project over four years in the making, Casualties of Cool revisits the rootsy country and North American folk music of Townsend's youth.   Townsend considers the album as a chance to switch off from the hyper-accelerated world. The themes of the record surround what he believes to be a bridge in his career; an acceptance of the artist he is today and an embrace of the fear of leaving behind what people know of him.  A 2cd/1dvd set. The dvd (ntsc, region 0) features a previously unreleased live performance filmed at a sold out show at London's beautiful Union Chapel (plus an interview and two music videos).

Lumpy Money part of a Zappa Family Trust Project/Object Audio Documentary series celebrates the 40th Anniversary of Frank Zappa's Masterworks 'Lumpy Gravy' & 'We're Only in It for the Money.' Contains unique & rare versions of both legendary albums (released digitally in pristine audio quality for the 1st time), nuggets from the Vault (studio outtakes, single versions, instrumental mixes, FZ interviews) with extensive booklet featuring photos & liner notes from David Fricke & Gail Zappa.

Frank Zappa/Road Tapes Venue #1 ....double CD $21.99

Frank Zappa/Road Tapes Venue #1 ....double CD $21.99

The Road Tapes Series focuses on audio from the Vault that is historical yet sonically less than stellar. Described by the man himself as 'Guerilla Recordings,' Frank Zappa tried to document every performance. Road Tapes Venue #1, first in the series, takes us to summertime '68, Vancouver, B.C., where the Mothers of Invention played Kerrisdale Arena to an enthusiastic crowd. Captured on mono reel-to-reel, the concert is inspired and showcases a mixture of classic Mothers & live improvisations.

Frank Zappa/Road Tapes Venue #2 ....double CD $21.99

Frank Zappa/Road Tapes Venue #2 ....double CD $21.99

Road Tapes Venue #2 takes us back to August '73 in Helsinki, Finland. The performances, compiled from 3 shows at Finlandia Hall, are recorded by engineer Kerry McNabb while on his first tour with FZ. This band consists of a lineup that is often regarded as one of FZ's finest. Stars like George Duke, Jean Luc Ponty and Ruth Underwood shine. The compositions become increasingly challenging yet still maintain the humor expected at a live Zappa show. A potent and rewarding release.

Frank Zappa/Road Tapes Venue #3 ....double CD $21.99

Frank Zappa/Road Tapes Venue #3 ....double CD $21.99

Road Tapes Venue #3 features two complete shows from Tyrone Guthrie Theater in Minneapolis, MN. The July '70 Mothers line-up featured Flo & Eddie, George Duke, Ian Underwood, Aynsley Dunbar & Jeff Simmons. FZ's vast Vault does not contain many full shows from this time period, so that alone makes this release a special one. The tapes were recorded to stereo reel-to-reel, but not without problems. Due to their historical relevance, we felt it was worth it, warts 'n all! Venue #3 does not disappoint.

Security Project/Live 1 ....CD $16.99

Security Project/Live 1 ....CD $16.99

The timeless music of Peter Gabriel finds new life with The Security Project. Members of King Crimson, Shriekback and Gabriel's original band take these classics and give them new wings for the 21st Century. Added to the pedigree of these players is the voice of Brian Cummins. His startling interpretations add a haunting authenticity to the live shows. This live CD (part 2 out in October) is a first - no one has dared take on Gabriel's material at this level before. These immaculate arrangements show a live band brewing something deep from these original musical recipes. The Security Project tours worldwide. A West Coast tour starts in May and an East Coast one in October.

Billy Cobham/Broad Horizon ....CD $14.99

Billy Cobham/Broad Horizon ....CD $14.99

In the summer of 2016, Billy Cobham & Frankfurt Radio Big Band will release a CD titled "Broad Horizon," a brand new fusion/rock full length album. Ever since his breakthrough in the early 1970s - as a founding member of the Mahavishnu Orchestra, and as a drummer/leader whose recordings (such as Spectrum 40 and Tales from the Skeleton Coast) and powerful, complex style of play exerted a strong influence on the course of jazz and jazz-fusion - Billy Cobham has remained a tireless musical explorer. Panamanian by birth, a New Yorker by upbringing, and a resident of Switzerland for more than 25 years, Cobham has pursued an ever-broadening, ever-deepening engagement with the world not only as a master drummer and percussionist but as a composer, producer, educator, and clinician who gives service through music even as he constantly expands his personal creative expression.

Robert Reed/Sanctuary II ....import double CD + DVD $28.99

Tigermoth Records is pleased to announce the release of the follow up to the acclaimed 2014 "Sanctuary" album by multi-instrumentalist and producer Robert Reed (Magenta / Kompendium / Kiama / Chimpan A).  "Sanctuary II" is produced, mixed and engineered by Reed, who also plays most of the instruments himself, although for this new album he is joined by legendary drummer Simon Phillips (Toto / Mike Oldfield / The Who) while the original "Tubular Bells" production team of Tom Newman and Simon Heyworth have once again made important contributions to the sound of the album.   Robert comments about the spirit behind the two Sanctuary albums: "There's a well-known interview with Mike Oldfield in which he said that he was so disappointed that nobody had carried the torch forward that he had lit with 'Tubular Bells' - creating long form music; completely hand-played with real instruments; music that relied on emotion and melody; music you could lose yourself in. What I am trying to do with the "Sanctuary" albums is to carry that ideal forward."  Robert also discusses the participation of legendary drummer Simon Phillips on "Sanctuary II": "I wanted to do something different on this new album. I had played all the instruments on the first, so this time I decided to use real drums. There was one person at the top of my wish list, and it was Simon Phillips. I grew up listening to Simon's playing on Mike Oldfield's "Crises" album, and went to see him play with Mike at Wembley. I could never have thought, then, that one day he would play on my own album. I feel amazingly lucky. His trademark sound is perfect for the album. It really has taken 'Sanctuary II' to another level."  The album will be released as a 3 disc set. CD1 will contain the new album while CD2 includes unreleased tracks, remixes and Tom Newman's alternative mixes. The third disc will be a DVD containing the 5.1 mix of the album and various promotional and interview videos.

Rick Wakeman, Jeff Wayne & Kevin Peek/Beyond the Planets      import CD $21.99

Rick Wakeman, Jeff Wayne & Kevin Peek/Beyond the Planets     import CD $21.99

Have you even wondered what would happen if the king of progressive rock keyboards teamed up with the bloke who wrote The War of the Worlds rock opera and the guitarist with the late lamented classical rock group Sky? Well, you need wonder no longer! Beyond the Planets is essentially the performance of Holst's The Planets in a rock context. Wayne's contribution is limited to the composition of an Overture for the album. As this ends, some brief narration by Patrick Allen is heard. Allen does a great impression of Richard Burton, which when combined with Wayne's distinctive sound, immediately creates echoes of War of the Worlds. Allen returns a couple of times during the album to link tracks together with further brief narration. The familiar introduction to "Mars" (as used by Rainbow on "Eyes of the World" among many others) then takes over, and we launch into a full rendition of "The Planets Suite." The music is performed dramatically and faithfully throughout, with Peek using various guitar sounds according to the mood of the piece.

Klaus Schulze & Pete Namlook/Dark Side of the Moog Vol 5-8 ....5 CD Set $32.99

Klaus Schulze & Pete Namlook/Dark Side of the Moog Vol 5-8 ....5 CD Set $32.99

The influence Pete Namlook had on Klaus Schulze's music in the middle of the nineties should not be taken lightly, because although Klaus dearly loved those early analogue elements from his own music, they had become, to an extent, lost. It was Pete who fortified him to go back to the analogue charm of his early albums and it was Pete who supported him in the modification of his analogue instruments, leading finally to the epoch-making Schulze album from 1996, "Are You Sequenced?"  For Namlook, the curiosity of Klaus Schulze and their collaboration on a level playing field of mutual respect was inspiring: And so a legendary series of recordings was born. 'Dark Side Of The Moog' grew more or less unplanned to a sprawling, stately-sized series of eleven volumes recorded between 1994 and 2008, only ending with the early, tragic death of Pete on November 8th 2012. Retrospectively, the approach to and exchange of music and ideas, the growing together and cross-pollination of emotion and logic, makes for a rewarding and fascinating listening experience that still holds it's own today.  This five CD box set continues the Dark Side of the Moog series with volumes 5-8 including Psychedelic Brunch, The Final Dat, Obscured by Klaus, and Careful with that AKS Peter. The bonus fifth disc includes the tracks SQ1, Voices in the Dark and SQ4.

Samurai of Prog/Lost & Found ....import double CD $32.99

The Samurai of Prog will release their new double album, "Lost and Found," this summer. Working with original members of Pavlov's Dog, Lift, Cathedral, Odyssey, and Quill, the band has discovered lost prog epics from the 1970s. Because of dissolving record contracts, band line-up changes, and the shifting landscape of popular music, these amazing compositions were never properly recorded...until now! The Samurai have created stunning, brand-new versions, and the result is a prog-lover's paradise. The recording is audiophile quality. The band remains the core trio of Marco Bernard, Kimmo Porsti and Steve Unruh, plus Stefan Renstrom and Tom Doncourt. Special guests include Jon Davison (Yes), Mark Trueack (UPF, Unitopia), K. Alan Shikoh (Glass Hammer), David Myers (The Musical Box, solo artist), Linus Kase (Anglagard), Chip Gremillion (Lift), Keith Christian (Quill), Johan Oijen (Brighteye Brison), and Steve Scorfina (Pavlov's Dog). Album includes a 57 minute-track "The Demise" written by Ken DeLoria and other Quill members.

Residents/Daydream B-Liver ....CD $19.99

Residents/Daydream B-Liver ....CD $19.99

Daydream B-Liver was released by The Residents' Fan Club UWEB in 1991. It's an assortment of music from the years 1971 to 1991. The oldest material is a recording of a live show at The Boarding House in '71. The Residents were assisted by Snakefinger for the event. Then there is three tracks from the Stars & Hank Forever sessions that were not used on the original album. Daydream in Space was recorded by the band especially for this compilation. It is a nod to Sun Ra and Barry White. Dog Glue is an unused snippet from the Baby King music used on The King and Eye. The 1990s are represented by music from the Freak Show and Cube E sessions, including a live rehearsal for a German TV show. The song that gives the album its title (apart from it being part B of Liver Music) is a cover version of The Monkees' hit single of the (nearly) same name. As a bonus, we have included the Special Almost Dance Mix of Hit the Road Jack, a song that The Residents recorded in 1987 as a follow-up to Kaw-Liga. This version has previously never been available on CD.

Captain Beefheart/Somewhere over California: Live at the Country Club Reseda California 1981 ....import double CD $26.99

Don Van Vliet 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.  As Beefheart.com put it: "Autumn 1980 through January 1981 Captain Beefheart and the Magic Band promoted their latest album, Doc at the Radar Station, with a tour in Europe and the States. However, as Don hadn't performed live for well over a year and a half, it took a while before he found the right groove. After a terrible first week, the group came into shape (also because last-minute member Richard Snyder 'fell in place') and when the band returned to the USA in late November it was tight. One of the last concerts of what would turn out to be Beefheart's last tour, took place on January 29, 1981 in one of the many towns surrounding Los Angeles.

John Illsley/Long Shadows ....import CD $25.99

2016 release, the sixth solo studio album from multiple Brit and Grammy award winner John Illsley. After cutting his teeth as bass player and one of the founding members of Dire Straits, Illsley has also released a steady stream of solo material, an output that, although never rushed, has been critically acclaimed. Undertaking lead vocal, acoustic guitar and bass duties on all of the album's eight tracks, Illsley's unmistakable sound, approach to arrangement and song writing is paired with his faultless lyrical storytelling. A departure from the previous album's themes of personal trials and tribulations, Illsley comments that the lyrical content pertains to "the obvious political and social elements which have always concerned me." Illsley enlisted a roster of top friends and musicians for this release, including Simon Johnson (Lana Del Rey, James Morrison) on electric guitar and Guy Fletcher performing keyboard duties, as well as co-producing the album with Illsley. The Mark Knopfler owned British Grove Studios along with Room with a View Studio and A Bay Studios were used to record and produce the record, with Illsley's children Jess and Dee Dee Illsley also contributed backing vocals.

On the 12th January, Rick Wakeman joined Simon Mayo on Drive Time BBC Radio 2, to pay tribute to his friend David Bowie and perform a very special version of 'Life on Mars' as a tribute. The public response was considerable, with over 3,000,000 views on the BBC web site and rising, the demand for this track is increasing daily. This all was totally unexpectedly. Then the public started to email both the BBC and Rick's own web site suggesting that Rick's version of 'Life on Mars' be released to help raise awareness and funds for a cancer charity. Rick thought this was a wonderful idea and has agreed to donate all his artist royalties to the Macmillan Cancer Support. Includes 'Life On Mars,' 'Space Oddity' and 'Always Together.'

Alongside The Mahavishnu Orchestra, Weather Report, Mwandishi and Return To Forever, The Eleventh House were one the most important bands of the 1970s jazz-rock explosion.   With a line-up of guitar ace Larry Coryell, trumpeter Randy Brecker, Mike Mandel on keyboards, bassist Danny Trifan and drummer Alphonse Mouzon, the band produced a powerfully original brand of Fusion.  The Funky Waltz derives from a high quality live broadcast by WBCN-FM on 4th December 1973 (at The Jazz Workshop, Boston), and was recorded a few months before the release of the band's incendiary debut Introducing Eleventh House.

When "In Blue" was released, many fans thought that this was the most typical Schulze record for a long time. They were probably right because Klaus did the songs a little bit with the fans in mind for whom the sound of the previous album were too modern. In this respect "In Blue" is a more traditional Schulze record because it featured Manuel Goettsching on "Return of the Tempel."

Seven years on from their iconic Last Waltz in San Francisco, Rick Danko, Levon Helm, Garth Hudson, and Richard Manuel reunited, performing (with backup from the Cate Brothers) to rapturous receptions in the US and Canada. Manuel in particular was in better form than he'd been for years, as The Band tore through a selection of classics from their back catalog, as well as the new track Java Blues and numerous oldies they'd played during their long apprenticeship. This remarkable set at the University of Chicago's Mandel Hall on July 1, 1983, was broadcast on WXRT-FM at the outset of their reunion, and is presented here in it's entirety with background notes and images.

Continuing his productive creative surge, the guitar master rediscovers his rock chops in this new studio package. Ten great new songs, phenomenal guitar playing, and that signature tone that only Robin Trower can cultivate from his Strat. Where You Are Going To is more of a rocker than the last one, but still squarely based in Robin's love for the blues. Robin's voice is much more confident on these ten new studio recordings, and the guitar work is stunning. A continuation of Mr. Trower's creative upsurge, Robin is credited with guitar, vocals, and bass with Chris Taggart on drums and with Livingstone Brown also on bass, co-production and mixing/mastering. Robin created the art piece that was turned into a classy package by graphic artist Eric Krause.

In 1976, with six albums and eight years after being founded, the German Krautrock legend Guru Guru was the first German band to be invited to play at Rockpalast. Guru Guru with their outstanding drummer Mani Neumeier have always been considered the perfect hippie band. Every festival of alternative music from Burg Herzberg to Finkenbach was their playground. Hence, this Rockpalast with two Rockpalast shows from 1976 and 2004 is also a document of Germany's music history. Guru Guru presents a wild mixture of rock, jazz and horseplay combined with rhythms of bossa nova or tango. Our special recommendation! Since 1968 up to this day Guru Guru is still live on the road throughout the world.

Digitally remastered edition. The debut of Steeleye Span (Mark II), with Peter Knight on fiddle and Martin Carthy on guitar, Ashley Hutchings on bass and vocals by Maddy Prior, is more solid in almost every area from repertory to production. The group still had its feet in both modern and traditional sounds simultaneously, so Please to See the King mixes very beautiful, distinctly archaic sounding songs such as "Boys of Bedlam" with amplified, electric numbers.

Steeleye Span/Ten Man Mop or Mr. Reservoir Butler Rides Again ....import CD $22.99

Digitally remastered edition. Ten Man Mop or Mr. Reservoir Butler Rides Again is the third album by Steeleye Span, recorded in 1971. Of all their albums, it is the most acoustic and it also has considerable Irish influence. Ten Man Mop opens with possibly the most beautifully sung number of their entire history, "Gower Wassail," which also makes a very strong case for the use of electric guitars in a traditional folk setting. "Paddy Clancy's Jig/Four Nights Drunk" was the group's first great electric adaptation of traditional dance. Highlighted by Maddy Prior's haunting performance on "When I Was on Horseback" the delightful "Marrowbones," the riveting "Stewball," and the rousing reels "Dowd's Favorite," "?10 Float," and "The Morning Dew." This was the last album to feature founding member Ashley Hutchings, and with this releaase we have Ashley helping out with liner notes.

The Electric Prunes/The Complete Reprise Singles ....CD $16.99

Though the Electric Prunes were responsible for some of the boldest and most experimental pop of the late '60s, they always were, more than just about any band of their ilk, a singles-oriented act, at least in their earliest incarnation. In fact, according to vocalist James Lowe, the engineers at American Recording, where many of their early singles were recorded, used to transmit the single mixes to a radio in a car parked outside the studio to make sure the songs sounded good in the medium through which most people would hear them. As a result, the Prunes singles were punchier than their album counterparts, and were, above all, mono - yet to date, no legitimate collection has ever compiled these singles, many of which have never been on CD in their original mix. Now, for the first time, Real Gone Music has assembled all 23 of their original single sides for Reprise, which span several band line-ups and several legendary producers (Dave Hassinger, David Axelrod) with very different visions, yet remain of remarkably consistent high quality. Richie Unterberger's notes include track commentary from the band and shots of the original singles themselves. Special bonus: the band's demonstration of the Vox Wah-Wah Pedal!

The Tubes/Young & Rich + Now ....double CD $18.99

The Tubes/Young & Rich + Now ....double CD $18.99

The fact that these two albums, their second and third releases, were out of print for years is eloquent testimony to the fact that the Tubes are one of the most underrated bands of the '70s. This was a band that blended disparate strands of Album-Oriented Rock into a vision all their own. Salacious Zappalike satire? Check. Over the top theatricality a la Alice Cooper? Check. BOC-like hard rock? Check. Even avant-garde, Beefheart-ian atonality cropped up in unexpected places. Yet underneath all the pomp and circumstance this San Francisco group was still just a bar band, and it was these radically different stylistic directions that held back these records from widespread commercial success even as they rewarded those listeners that hung on for the ride. Whether live, with the various personas adopted by Fee Waybill, or in the studio, the Tubes approached each song as a conceptual art piece; such songs as "Don't Touch Me There," "Slipped My Disco," "Cathy's Clone" and "God-Bird-Change" attest that they damn well pulled it off. One CD wasn't enough to hold these records; we've given them each their own disc, and added liner notes by Gene Sculatti drawn from a new interview with drummer Prairie Prince along with the original inner-sleeve art. Essential '70s artifacts whose vision remains vital and relevant.

This is the only Dick's Picks volume to feature the final Dead line-up, with Vince Welnick assuming all keyboard duties after the departure of Bruce Hornsby, and, fittingly enough, it provides quite the showcase for the ex-Tubes keyboardist's vocal chops on the unexpected covers of the Who's "Baba O'Riley" and the Beatles' "Tomorrow Never Knows!" Those are two of the four bonus songs taken from the next night's show at the same venue; the rest of this 3-CD set presents the complete 12/16/92 Oakland show, which offers among its treasures a rare (albeit abbreviated), '90s reading of "Dark Star," a great, Pigpen-tribute rendition of "Good Lovin'," Bob Weir's fine reading of Willie Dixon's "The Same Thing" and a marvelously exploratory "Playing in the Band/Drums/Space" segment. One of the best '90s Dead shows, presented in HDCD sound.

Grateful Dead/Dick's Picks Vol. 29 - 5/19/77 Fox Theatre Atlanta GA & 5/21/77 Lakeland Civic Center Arena ....6 CD Set $62.99

Grateful Dead/Dick's Picks Vol. 29 - 5/19/77 Fox Theatre Atlanta GA & 5/21/77 Lakeland Civic Center Arena ....6 CD Set $62.99

Start talking tours to any Deadhead you know and just say "Spring '77" - chances are a big smile will steal across his or her face. That's because of all the road trips in the Dead's long history, arguably the one that saw the most consistently high level of playing was the Spring '77 tour the band undertook in support of its forthcoming Terrapin Station album.  And that's why, out of the 36 volumes in the Dick's Picks series, only one, this one, is a 6-CD set (there isn't even a 5-CD set)! Inside are two complete shows minus one encore (from the Florida show), plus some equally fantastic, unlisted bonus tracks from a 10/11/77 show in Norman, Oklahoma, all impeccably recorded by Betty Cantor-Jackson.  Highest among the many highlights from the Fox Theatre show are the version of Sugaree and the incredible segue from Playing in the Band to Uncle John's Band (also don't miss the unbilled, primal version of Not Fade Away). But the Lakeland show just may take the cake - two medleys, a breathtaking Scarlet Begonias/Fire on the Mountain and a jaw-dropping Estimated Prophet/He's Gone/Drums/The Other One/Comes a Time/St. Stephen/Not Fade Away/St. Stephen/One More Saturday Night, are the icing. Comes with original slipcased packaging.

Sea Level/Sea Level + Long Walk on a Short Pier ....CD $15.99

Sea Level/Sea Level + Long Walk on a Short Pier ....CD $15.99

Having put out Sea Level's second and third albums, we're now polishing off their Capricorn album catalog by releasing the first and last albums on a single CD! Sea Level had begun as a Allman Brothers spinoff, with three members of the mid-'70s ABB (keyboardist Chuck Leavell, percussionist Jai Johanny "Jaimoe" Johanson and bassist Lamar Williams) leading their proto-jam band mixture of jazz, blues, and rock on the debut record, which was highlighted by such instrumentals as "The Rain in Spain" and "Tidal Wave" as well as the Leavell organ showcase "Grand Larceny." And though the band had changed quite a bit between the first and fourth record - Jaimoe and drummer George Weaver had left, and guitarist Davis Causey, saxophonist/keyboardist Randall Bramblett, and drummer Joe English had joined - the band maintained its superb "level" of musicianship, even though Long Walk on a Short Pier didn't come out in the U.S. for 20 years due to contractual problems with Capricorn. Both albums have been out of print on CD for over a decade and command huge prices on the reselllers' market; they appear here with notes by Scott Schinder featuring exclusive quotes from Chuck Leavell himself!

The Delfonics/40 Classic Soul Sides ....double CD $19.99

The Delfonics/40 Classic Soul Sides ....double CD $19.99

Hey Philly Soul fans - we are going to blow your minds this time! Here is (by far) the biggest anthology ever afforded the trio that pioneered the Philadelphia Sound, The Delfonics, featuring 40 sweetly soulful tracks, most of 'em recorded under the watchful eye of the great Thom Bell and featuring the potent songwriting team of Bell and lead singer William Hart. In fact, this collection is so comprehensive that it's missing only six tracks from the group's four classic Philly Groove studio albums, and has thrown on three non-LP sides to boot! Every key track is here, including "La-La Means I Love You," "You Got Yours and I'll Get Mine," "(Didn't I) Blow Your Mind This Time," "Trying to Make a Fool of Me," "I'm Sorry," "Break Your Promise," "Ready or Not Here I Come (Can't Hide from Love), and more, all beautifully remastered by Vic Anesini at Battery Studios in New York. And for an extra special treat, Joe Marchese's notes include exclusive quotes from Thom Bell, William Hart, and legendary Philly Soul sideman Bobby Eli. Undeniably definitive Delfonics!

Survivor/The Definitive Collection ....double CD $21.99

Survivor/The Definitive Collection ....double CD $21.99

After leading The Ides of March (Vehicle) and recording a solo album for Epic in 1976 (whose liner notes termed him "a survivor," thus inspiring the band name), vocalist/guitarist/keyboardist Jim Peterik formed Survivor in 1978 along with guitarist Frankie Sullivan. After recording a couple of moderately successful albums for the Scotti Brothers label, the band struck gold when Sly Stallone tapped them to record the theme song for Rocky III. "Eye of the Tiger" went to #1, took the album of the same name to #2, and cemented Survivor's place in rock history. Now, Real Gone Music is proud to present the most comprehensive collection ever devoted to this Windy City legend, a 2-CD set offering 35 tracks taken from the peak 1978-1988 years, featuring key tracks from both the Dave Bickler and Jimi Jamison lead vocalist eras. All but two of the band's hits are here, including such indelible tracks as, of course, "Eye of the Tiger," "Poor Man's Son," "American Heartbeat," "I Can't Hold Back," "High on You," "The Search Is Over," "Burning Heart" (from Rocky IV), "Is This Love," and more.  Liner note writer Bill Kopp sat down for a nice, long interview with Jim Peterik, and we've included photos and album art. The definitive collection indeed....get your '80s groove on!

Fairport Convention/Live in Finland 1971 ....CD $14.99

Fairport Convention/Live in Finland 1971 ....CD $14.99

Hosts of the annual Cropredy Festival and a mere year shy of their 50th anniversary, Fairport Convention is the British folkrock group, and many of the most talented and celebrated musicians in the scene have passed through their ranks. Of their many line-ups, generally it's the Richard Thompson-Ashley Hutchings-Sandy Denny era that gets the most attention, followed by the return of Denny in the mid '70s with husband Trevor Lucas. But if there is one line-up that really doesn't get its due, it would be the quartet of guitarist Simon Nicol, bassist Dave Pegg, fiddler Dave Swarbrick, and drummer Dave Mattacks that remained after Richard Thompson departed following Full House. Together, the four made two fine, underrated studio albums, Angel Delight and "Babbacombe" Lee, but live - as this unreleased August 1971 concert demonstrates - they were a revelation. Never during any of its eras did Fairport rock harder, and, though the band lacked any lead vocalist of the stature of Denny or Iain Matthews, all four members of the group sang and sang well, which lent their on-stage act extra energy. The show begins with the viola/violin duet between Nicol and Swarbrick on "Bridge over the River Ash" that appeared on Angel Delight along with the second track, "The Journeyman's Grace," but then the set list gets delightfully obscure for Fairport fans with a piledriving version of "Mason's Apron," a tune that never showed up on any of their studio albums. Old faves "Sir Patrick Spens" (from Full House) and "Matty Groves" (from Liege and Lief) follow, but then the band launches into the rollicking three-song medley "Sir B. McKenzie's Daughter's Lament" which only appeared on a 1970 single and whose extended original title vied for entry in the Guinness Book of World Records as the longest of its kind. The show winds up with the more elegiac "Sir William Gower" from Angel Delight, but, make no mistake, this is one blazing set of music, and the ample low-end of this concert recording - mastered by Mike Milchner at SonicVision - will have you dancing a jig across your living room. With notes by Richie Unterberger featuring quotes from the band, and photos from the Fairport archives, this is a major addition to the band's vast discography.

The Paul Butterfield Blues Band/Got a Mind to Give Up Living - Live 1966 ....CD $16.99

The Paul Butterfield Blues Band/Got a Mind to Give Up Living - Live 1966 ....CD $16.99

If the Summer of 1967 was the Summer of Love, the Summer of 1966 set the stage for the musical revolution that was to come. Albums released during the season, like The Beatles' Revolver and The Byrds' Fifth Dimension, brilliantly blended the burgeoning influence of Eastern exoticism into the rock music format, and the term "psychedelia" entered the common lexicon to stay. But beating them all to the punch was a multi-racial blues band that cut its teeth in Chicago, far from the hippie havens of London, Los Angeles and San Francisco. Issued in July 1966, The Paul Butterfield Blues Band's East-West took blues-rock to places only free jazz had dared to tread, offering lengthy, modal improvisational passages that sparked the West Coast rock revolution, and, in Mike Bloomfield and Elvin Bishop, fully unleashing the first great guitar tandem in rock history. Now, Real Gone Music is very proud to release, for the first time in legitimate fashion, a legendary bootleg that captures this singular sextet on the brink of the stylistic breakthrough that would shake the rock 'n' roll world to its core: recorded live at Boston's Unicorn Coffee House 50 years ago in May 1966, two months before the release of East-West, Got a Mind to Give Up Living - Live 1966 reaffirms that The Paul Butterfield Blues Band was simply untouchable live, capable of turning on a dime from slowburning blues tunes to up-tempo rave-ups. And, particularly on a pair of tunes that were soon to be released on East-West, "Work Song" and "I Got a Mind to Give Up Living," the raga influence (check Bloomfield's solos!) comes through loud and clear, combining with the band's blues tropes to create a truly new style of rock and rock guitar playing.  Butterfield fans will also delight in the early appearances of "One More Heartache" (from The Resurrection of Pigboy Crabshaw) and "Walking by Myself" (from Keep On Movin'), plus a pair of tunes, "Comin' Home Baby" and "It Serves You Right to Suffer," that the band never commercially recorded. Notes by Chris Morris featuring fresh quotes from Elvin Bishop and Mark Naftalin, rare pictures and memorabilia, editorial input from Bloomfield aficionado and coproducer Toby Byron, and some audio spit 'n' polish from Mike Milchner at SonicVision make this a package indispensable for any '60s rock (or jazz or R&B!) fan.

Edgar Winter/The Definitive Collection ....double CD $19.99

Edgar Winter/The Definitive Collection ....double CD $19.99

After gaining notice as a sideman on his brother Johnny's Second Winter album, keyboardist/saxophonist/composer Edgar Winter signed to Epic Records and quickly became one of the biggest stars of the '70s, releasing eight charting albums during the decade including the #3 smash They Only Come Out at Night. But aside from his commercial success, what makes Edgar Winter such an intriguing artist - and worthy of a 2-CD, 30-track retrospective, his biggest ever - is that he never stayed in one stylistic rut. Elements of blues, jazz, soul, rock and funk swirl within his music, sometimes even in the same song (e.g. "Frankenstein"), and the level of musicianship - with such sidemen/band members as Rick Derringer, Ronnie Montrose, Dan Hartman, and, of course, brother Johnny Winter - is never less than top shelf. This 30-track collection hits all the high points in chronological order, offering such hits and album tracks as "Give It Everything You Got," "Keep Playin' That Rock 'n' Roll," "Rock & Roll, Hoochie Koo," "Free Ride," "Frankenstein," "River's Risin'," "Easy Steet," and more, and pulls tracks from all 11 of the albums he recorded for Epic and Blue Sky featuring all of the various aggregations (Edgar Winter's White Trash, The Edgar Winter Group, and his Together album with Johnny) that he led. Bill Kopp's liner notes share the fruits of a 2 1/2 hour-long interview, and we've included copious photos and album shots. Remastered by Darren Salmieri at Battery Studios in New York....some of the best blues-rock of the '70s!

Loudon Wainwright III/Loudon Wainwright III + Album II: The Atlantic Recordings ....CD $18.99

Loudon Wainwright III/Loudon Wainwright III + Album II: The Atlantic Recordings ....CD $18.99

No singer-songwriter has ever stared at himself in the mirror with quite the intense honesty displayed by Loudon Wainwright III throughout his career, but his first two albums, cut for Atlantic in 1970 and 1971, respectively, really bare the soul to a degree perhaps only rivaled by John Lennon's first solo album with the Plastic Ono Band. Lust, suicidal feelings, fear of parenthood; all are grist for Loudon's songwriting mill - with such fearless introspection, little wonder he later became an acclaimed actor. But if this all sounds like a tedious wallow, it's not, for Wainwright is also probably the funniest singer-songwriter ever (sample rhyming couplet: "And a baby can spot your shtick/All the coochy coochy coo is a lot of poo poo when you spread it on that thick"). This Real Gone release finally brings to retail the original limited edition Rhino Handmade set that was only available online, and then only for a heartbeat before it sold out, complete with bonus track ("Drinking Song"). These 24 tracks represent Loudon's complete Atlantic recordings....indispensable stuff!

 

The Cannonball Adderly Quintet/The Price You Got to Pay to Be Free ....CD $15.99 The Cannonball Adderly Quintet/Music You All ....CD $12.99
The Cannonball Adderly Quintet/The Price You Got to Pay to Be Free ....CD $15.99 The Cannonball Adderly Quintet/Music You All ....CD $12.99

Julian "Cannonball" Adderley first gained notice as the bluesier saxophone voice on Miles Davis' Kind of Blue (John Coltrane being the other), and in the late '60s and early '70s, he was engaged in an ongoing artistic conversation with Miles, often trading musicians (e.g. Joe Zawinul) with him and taking the electric innovations of Bitches Brewand filtering them with through his own earthy sensibility. The height of Cannonball's fusion phase arguably came in 1970, a year that yielded no less than three live albums - all produced by David Axelrod - that have since ascended to cult favorite status. We at Real Gone have already issued one of them, the double-album Black Messiah; now, we're back with a double-barreled blast of Cannonball, as we reissue for the first time on CD his albums The Price You Got to Pay to Be Free and Music, You All. Both releases feature liner notes by Bill Kopp that include quotes from Cannonball's drummer at the time, Roy McCurdy, and remastering by Mike Milchner at SonicVision!

Drawn from a performance at the 1970 Monterey Jazz Festival and "live in the studio" tracks cut at Capitol, the double-album The Price You Got to Pay to Be Free was a testament to Cannonball Adderley's sprawling artistic vision, embracing abstract improvisation, funky soul-jazz, hard bop, and world music. It also offered the lone lead vocal of the saxman's entire career (on Milton Nascimento's "Bridges"), and was the last Cannonball Adderley album to feature keyboardist Joe Zawinul, who contributes the key compositions "Directions," "Painted Desert," and "Rumplestiltskin." The record went to #5 on the Billboard Jazz chart and #169 on the Top 200, quite a remarkable showing given the avant-garde stylings of such numbers as "Out and In" and "Alto Sex," although the album also did include such trademark populist Cannonball fare as "Down in Black Bottom" and "Get Up off Your Knees." CD debut and a essential modern jazz recording!

Drawn from the same 1970 Troubadour performances that yielded the album Black Messiah (also issued by Real Gone Music), and featuring the same line-up (the two Adderley brothers, Cannon and Nat; keyboardist George Duke; bassist Walter Booker; drummer Roy McCurdy, and special guests guitarist Mike Deasy, percussionist Airto Moreira and saxman Ernie Watts), Music, You All displayed the same uncompromisingly eclectic rock/soul/jazz fusion as did its companion release. But on Music, You All, Cannonball's warmly iconoclastic stage personality really comes to the fore....witness the two tracks simply entitled "Cannon Raps!" And George Duke fans will flip over this album; check his solo on "Capricorn" for starters. One of those live albums that REALLY makes you wish you were there!

Grateful Dead/Dick's Picks Vol. 1 - Tampa Florida 12/1/73 ....double CD $36.99

Grateful Dead/Dick's Picks Vol. 1 - Tampa Florida 12/1/73 ....double CD $36.99

"Dick" was Dick Latvala, the official tape archivist for the Grateful Dead until 1999, whose inspiration and encyclopedic knowledge of the band's vaults spawned the fabled Dick's Picks series of live Dead concert recordings. Comprised of 36 volumes, Dick's Picks follows the band on its long, strange trip through a multitude of eras, tours and venues, featuring handpicked shows that display the band at its visionary, improvisational height. Now, Real Gone Music is finally bringing this unparalleled cache of Dead concert brilliance to record stores!  With this release, we at Real Gone Music conclude our reissue campaign of all 36 volumes of the Dick's Picks series; we went in reverse order, so we're ending with the first volume in the series, which you know had to have a special place in compiler Dick Latvala's heart! And right off the bat you'll hear why; the version of "Here Comes Sunshine" that leads off disc one is pretty much universally considered the best ever. Throw in a great rendition of the rarely-performed "Nobody's Fault but Mine" that leads into a stellar 16-minute jam that flirts with a full-fledged "The Other One" but dances spacily away, and a moving "Stella Blue" before the "Around and Around" finale and you have another great night - in fact, the LAST night - from a great year (1973) of touring.....and, as such, the perfect way to begin and end the long strange trip that is the Dick's Picks series. Out of print for years!

Grateful Dead/Dick's Picks Vol. 25 - 5/10/78 New Haven CT + T 5/11/78 Springfield MA ....4 CD Set $54.99

Grateful Dead/Dick's Picks Vol. 25 - 5/10/78 New Haven CT + T 5/11/78 Springfield MA ....4 CD Set $54.99

This pair of Grateful Dead shows, taken from an extended East Coast run in the Spring of 1978, not only were among the best of the year, but - with the loving touch of Bear and Betty Cantor-Jackson at the controls - rank as one of the most beautifully recorded entries in the Dick's Picks series. Both concerts - which appear here minus just two and three songs, respectively - find the group in exceptionally lyrical form on ballads like "Loser," "Stella Blue," "Looks Like Rain" and "They Love Each Other." Also not to be missed is a superlative, slowed-down version of "Friend of the Devil" and the rare performance of Warren Zevon's "Werewolves of London" as an encore (the band only played it about a dozen times live). Full of diamonds for Deadheads.

Grateful Dead/Dick's Picks Vol. 31 -  8/4-5 Philadelphia Civic Center & 8/6/74 Roosevelt Stadium Jersey City ....4 CD Set $54.99

Grateful Dead/Dick's Picks Vol. 31 -  8/4-5 Philadelphia Civic Center & 8/6/74 Roosevelt Stadium Jersey City ....4 CD Set $54.99

This Dick's Picks volume captures the Dead right in the thick of the legendary 1974 Wall of Sound tour and only two months away from leaving the road for a year-and-a-half hiatus. The Wall of Sound was, of course, the massive sound system designed by Owsley "Bear" Stanley that was so meticulously constructed that, for example, each string of Phil Lesh's bass had its own speaker (and was so daunting to transport and assemble that it was dismantled after the tour). The result was a crystal-clear sound that to this day stirs controversy among the band's fans. It certainly complemented and even encouraged the band's continued move away from the country-rock of Workingman's Dead towards a jazz fusion sound best expressed by the two epic versions of "Playing in the Band" found here. As opposed to most Dick's Picks collections, this four-disc set offers highlights from three consecutive nights of shows rather than presenting shows in their entirety; the result is that each disc stands on its own as a musical statement. Highly rated by aficionados, and possibly the best Wall of Sound set of shows available, in HDCD sound to boot.

Grateful Dead/Dick's Picks Vol. 36 - The Spectrum Philadelphia 9/21/72 ....4 CD Set $54.99

Grateful Dead/Dick's Picks Vol. 36 - The Spectrum Philadelphia 9/21/72 ....4 CD Set $54.99

This 1972 performance comes with a very good pedigree, as Dick Latvala had this show on his short list of candidates for the very first release in the Dick's Picks series! Includes the complete Philadelphia concert (check out the Dark Star/Morning Dew transition) plus some bonuses from a 9/3/72 show at Folsom Field in Boulder, CO. Back in print by popular demand!

The Staple Singers/Amen! + Why ....CD $18.99

The Staple Singers/Amen! + Why ....CD $18.99

One could make the argument that no gospel group before or since has so successfully straddled the sacred and secular worlds as has The Staple Singers. The enormously influential blues guitar stylings of Roebuck "Pops" Staples, the astonishing, wise-beyond-theiryears lead vocals of Mavis Staples, and the exalted harmonies of Cleotha, Pervis, and (later) Yvonne Staples packed a punch whether singing about salvation or civil rights. Now, Real Gone Music welcomes "God's greatest hitmakers" into the fold with its release of two classic albums by The Staple Singers, their second and third releases and first two studio records for the Epic label, both produced by Billy Sherrill. 1965's Amen! features the infectious title track along with Pervis' doleful recitation on the powerful "Be Careful of the Stones You Throw," while 1966's Why actually scored a minor hit with the timely "Why (Am I Treated So Bad)," and highlights Mavis at her deep, moaning best on "Move Along Train." CD debuts for both records, with annotation by Gene Sculatti and remastering by Mike Piacentini at Battery Studios in New York. Two fantastic records....get ready to move and be moved!

The Beau Brummels/Triangle + Bradley's Barn ....CD $18.99

The Beau Brummels/Triangle + Bradley's Barn ....CD $18.99

While San Francisco's Beau Brummels are best known to casual fans for the British Invasion style hits "Laugh, Laugh" and "Just a Little," the two albums they cut for Warner Bros. with producer Lenny Waronker, Triangle and Bradley's Barn, remain their most artistically ambitious and critically acclaimed records, and continue to exert an influence on modern-day rockers well beyond their modest commercial success. The group was at a low point when they recorded Triangle; they were fresh off the debacle of Beau Brummels '66, the album of covers that was their ill-conceived Warner debut, and the original quintet had shrunk down to a trio of vocalist Sal Valentino, guitarist and principal songwriter Ron Elliott, and bassist Ron Meagher. But with Waronker as producer, the band was for the first time given the freedom to craft a coherent project from beginning to end, with help from some creative sidemen like Van Dyke Parks; the result was a moody, mysterious masterpiece that spoke to the psychedelic spirit of 1967 yet stood apart from it with such ethereal songs as "Magic Hollow" and "Painter of Women." Triangle also had hints of the newly emerging country rock style, and for 1968's Bradley's Barn, the Beau Brummels (now just consisting of Valentino and Elliott with Meagher off to the military) went to Nashville to record with such crack Music City session men as Jerry Reed, David Briggs, Norbert Putnam, and Kenneth Buttrey. Unfortunately, Bradley's Barn met the same fate as Triangle, scoring big with critics but not with audiences; today, however, highlighted by such twangy tunes as "Loneliest Man in Town" and "Long Walking Down to Misery," it's reckoned as a country rock landmark and a true alt-country precursor.  Real Gone Music is proud to present these two classic albums together on one CD for the first time, complete with Richie Unterberger's liner notes featuring quotes from songwriter Ron Elliott. Essential listening from perhaps the most underrated band of the '60s.

Dan Fogelberg/The Definitive Anthology ....double CD $19.99

Dan Fogelberg/The Definitive Anthology ....double CD $19.99

He's commonly thought of as the quintessential West Coast singer songwriter, but, as his celebrated collaborations with jazz flautist Tim Weisberg and soundtrack composer Domenic Frontiere demonstrate, the Peoria-born Dan Fogelberg had a restless artistic spirit that took him beyond the typical country influenced, folk-rock sound of his contemporaries. And it is that constant thirst for experimentation and change that make this new 2-CD career-spanning retrospective such a great listen. From rockers like "Phoenix," "As the Raven Flies," and "The Power of Gold," to chart-topping, radio-friendly fare like "Longer," "Same Old Lang Syne," "Hard to Say," and "Leader of the Band," to more idiosyncratic offerings like "Tucson, Arizona (Gazette)" and "Heart Hotels," The Definitive Anthology cherry picks 28 tracks from ten of Fogelberg's studio releases plus two tracks ("Missing You" and "Make Love Stay") that first were released on his Greatest Hits album to form a full portrait of a multi-faceted, complex songwriter and musician. Bill Kopp's liner notes guide the listener through each album and track. Remastered by Vic Anesini at Battery Studios in New York!

Sam Samudio/Sam Hard and Heavy ....CD $13.99

Sam Samudio/Sam Hard and Heavy ....CD $13.99

After the late '60s collapse of Sam the Sham & the Pharaohs, the band's front man and lead singer Domingo "Sam" Samudio signed a solo deal with Atlantic and recorded this 1971 slice of collector nirvana. Why nirvana? Well, aside from Sam's estimable vocal and songwriting contributions, the album boasted contributions from, oh, about a half-dozen different flat-out legends, including producers Tom Dowd and Jerry Wexler and sidemen the Dixie Flyers (led by Jim Dickinson), the Memphis Horns, the Sweet Inspirations, and some session guitarist named Duane Allman! Sam's born-to-be-wild pose on the front cover tips you off to the sound; this album updated the Pharoahs' frat-boy garage raunch with a nod towards hard rock ("Relativity" and "Don't Put Me On"), while also harkening back to his Tex-Mex ("Don't Put Me On") and blues ("Key to the Highway") roots. Little wonder, then, that vinyl copies of this record - which makes its CD debut here - fetch a pretty penny when and if you can find it. The album also won a Grammy for Sam's hilarious, stream-of-consciousness liner notes ("Thank the monkey"), which we've reproduced here along with new notes by Richie Unterberger. Don't miss this one!

Maynard Ferguson/The New Sounds of Maynard Ferguson + Come Blow Your Horn: The Complete Cameo Recordings ....CD $17.99

Maynard Ferguson/The New Sounds of Maynard Ferguson + Come Blow Your Horn: The Complete Cameo Recordings ....CD $17.99

Released through Real Gone by arrangement with ABKCO Records, this twofer features two of the most collectible albums in the entire Maynard Ferguson catalog, the two records he recorded in 1963 for the Cameo label in between his stints at the Roulette and Mainstream labels. Maynard still has his great Roulette band of Lanny Morgan, Willie Maiden, Frank Vicari, Mike Abene, Ronnie Cuber and master arranger Don Sebesky et al. with him on these recordings.  Sourced from the original master tapes, this marks the first time these rare gems will be legitimately released on CD. Both albums feature driving big band arrangements of both standards and originals, and we have unearthed an unreleased bonus track from the New Sounds sessions, a take on the classic "The Song Is You," exclusively for this reissue. Remastered straight from the original tapes with new liner notes - Maynard's complete Cameo recordings!

Goraguer, Alain - Fantastic Planet (Criterion Collection) Special Edition, 4K Mastering, Restored, Widescreen Blu-Ray $34.98
Nothing else has ever looked or felt like director Rene Laloux' animated marvel Fantastic Planet, a politically minded and visually inventive work of science fiction. The film is set on a distant planet called Ygam, where enslaved humans (Oms) are the playthings of giant blue natives (Draags). After Terr, kept as a pet since infancy, escapes from his gigantic child captor, he is swept up by a band of radical fellow Oms who are resisting the Draags oppression and violence. With it's eerie, coolly surreal cutout animation by Roland Topor; brilliant psychedelic jazz score by Alain Goraguer; and wondrous creatures and landscapes, this Cannes-awarded 1973 counterculture classic is a perennially compelling statement against conformity and violence.

CDs

3 - Live Boston 88 [Import] UK - 2PC $20.98
Two CD live archive release. This British/American progressive rock band 3 was a spin off from Emerson, Lake, & Palmer. They made one album in 1988 called To the Power of Three produced by Palmer. This release was recorded on the tour to promote the then-new album. The tour was extremely successful as the band mixed material from the new record with classics from ELP and The Nice. The show ended with a storming version of The Byrds classic 'Eight Miles High'. Sadly, Keith Emerson passed away recently and this live set is a strong reminder of what a maestro he was on the keyboards.

Recording this album has been a very rich experience that fulfilled my creative desires, with more to come. I’m delighted that German record label Bureau B will release the recording this year." ~ Peter Baumann

Beck, Jeff - Loud Hailer CD $17.98
LOUD HAILER, legendary guitarist Jeff Beck's first studio album in six years, combines fluid fretwork with topical lyrics to make a powerful statement about everything from the love of power, to the power of love. Loud hailer, which is another name for a megaphone, is a suitable moniker for an album that isn't shy about speaking its mind. The two-time Rock and Roll Hall of Famer explains, "I really wanted to make a statement about some of the nasty things I see going on in the world today, and I loved the idea of being at a rally and using this loud device to shout my point of view." To help him write the 11 tracks on LOUD HAILER, Beck enlisted two fierce young females from London - singer Rosie Bones and guitarist Carmen Vandenberg. Beck produced LOUD HAILER with Filippo Cimatti, who also works with Rosie and Carmen. In addition to the core trio, the album also features drummer Davide Sollazzi and bassist Giovanni Pallotti, who were both recruited by Cimatti. Bones lends her powerful voice to nine of the 11 songs on LOUD HAILER, which is then rounded out by two signature Beck instrumentals.

Buchanan, Roy - Genius Of The Guitar: His Early Records [Import] UK $19.98
During the early 1970s Roy Buchanan was feted as the greatest rock guitarist the world had ever known. This superb new CD from Jasmine takes a step back into his early career where he spent many years scuffling as a guitar slinger in numerous bands and doing a substantial amount of session work. Collected across this 44 track 2 CD set are examples of his dynamic guitar contributions to a bevy of national, regional and downright parochial recording artists including Dale Hawkins, Bob Luman, Freddy Cannon, and Danny and The Juniors. As well as all that there a couple of singles released under his own name plus a couple or more tracks where the jury is still out as to the identity of the guitar player. Outstanding guitar work is what this CD is all about and although these early recordings don't quite give the full picture of his exemplary talent for improvisation and creativity that would come in the 70s, they certainly show the signs of it developing, and tracks such as "The Jam (Part 1 and 2)" demonstrate his dynamic and original guitar sound.

Cobham, Billy - Broad Horizon CD $14.98
In the summer of 2016, Billy Cobham & Frankfurt Radio Big Band will release a CD titled "Broad Horizon," a brand new Fusion/Rock full length album. Ever since his breakthrough in the early 1970s - as a founding member of the Mahavishnu Orchestra, and as a drummer/leader whose recordings (such as Spectrum 40 and Tales from the Skeleton Coast) and powerful, complex style of play exerted a strong influence on the course of jazz and jazz-fusion - Billy Cobham has remained a tireless musical explorer. Panamanian by birth, a New Yorker by upbringing, and a resident of Switzerland for more than 25 years, Cobham has pursued an ever-broadening, ever-deepening engagement with the world not only as a master drummer and percussionist but as a composer, producer, educator, and clinician who gives service through music even as he constantly expands his personal creative expression.

Robert Glasper produced the collaboration. "I didn't want to do just a remix record," Glasper noted when discussing the 11-song set. "My idea was to show how Miles inspired people to make new art." Knowing that "Miles didn't have one audience," Glasper recruited a legion of diverse guest artists to add to the magic of the project including familiar collaborators like R&B musicians Erykah Badu, Ledisi, Bilal and KING. They are joined by British soul singer-songwriter Laura Mvula; hip-hop producer Rashad Smith; Grammy-nominated Australian neo-soul quartet Hiatus Kaiyote, rapper/producer Illa J; jazz guitarist John Scofield, who collaborated with Davis; and the legendary Stevie Wonder.

Deus Ex Machina - Devoto CD $17.98

Al Di Meola at Peabody's Down Under in Cleveland, Ohio on January 19th, 1995. This legendary US jazz-fusion guitarist is perhaps best-known for his work with Chick Corea's Return To Forever and his collaborations with Paco de Lucía and John McLaughlin, but has always defied categorization. This is typified by his mid-90s World Project ensemble, which combined his electric and acoustic approaches, using various different guitars and a remarkable band to offer a musical history of his career to date. This superb show was originally broadcast on WPCN-FM radio. Presented here with background notes and images.

Smyth, Gilli - Mother [Import] Remastered, UK $22.98
Comprised of recordings dating as far back as 1972 (some featuring Gong), "Mother" is arguably one of the finest albums in the wider Gong family. Described as "A psychedelic, spacey invocation of motherhood, an examination of gender roles and reincarnation", the album was mostly created in Mallorca by Gilli Smyth's then-partner and Gong visionary, Daveid Allen, who also played on the album. The album also saw guest appearances from saxophonist Didier Malherbe, bassist Christian Tristch and drummer Pip Pyle among others. Featuring the customary Daevid Allen touch of imaginative edits and sound collages, "Mother" is a joy from beginning to end. This new, official release has been newly re-mastered and includes a booklet with liner notes by Gong archivist and expert Jonny Greene.

Sun Ra - To Saturn And Back (Best Of) 2PC $12.98

Surman, John - Morning Glory CD $15.98
At the time of it's original release in 1973, Morning Glory, seemed a surprising departure for saxophonist John Surman. It seemed to owe more to the music being made by Miles Davis, Weather Report and Tony Williams' Lifetime in the USA or Ian Carr's Nucleus and Soft Machine in the UK than it did to the often abstract, free but determinedly acoustic music that Surman had pioneered up to that point. Hindsight tells another story. Morning Glory stands as both a consolidation of his work to date and, like the solo Westering Home, it offers a signpost for his work in subsequent years. Surman chose his partners for the recording very carefully, drawing from his friends and trusted collaborators. In particular, Terje Rypdal on electric guitar and John Taylor on both acoustic and electric pianos allows for an expanded musical palette. The rhythm section of Malcolm Griffiths on trombone, Chris Laurence on bass and John Marshall's chattering drums lay down a remarkably elastic rhythmic counterpoint. All of these musical signatures would become even more evident in his later recordings for ECM. Re-mastering from the original master tapes supervised by John Surman.

Surman, John - Westering Home CD $15.98
Fledg'ling are very proud to bring Westering Home to CD. Westering Home was originally released in 1972. John Surman plays everything on the album, drawing together many of the threads of his earlier recordings with the possibilities offered by technology (and his own prodigious musicality). "I took a break from being on the road. This was just around the time when mono had become stereo, and then - in a flash - multi-track recording became possible. I was fascinated by the possibilities of, say, three bass clarinets on different tracks improvising together. Plus I had a curiosity about 'radiophonics' and tape manipulation and Pierre Henry's musique concrete. So it was in that spirit that I started work on what was to become Westering Home."

Three disc (two CDs + DVD) set contains Vol. 1, Vol. 3 with bonus tracks, and a DVD with a True History of The Traveling Wilburys mini-documentary and the five music videos. Packaged in a digipack and includes a 16 page booklet. Deluxe Edition has three disc (two CDs + DVD) set packaged in a linen wrapped rigid slipcase including 40-page casebound books, an envelope containing two postcards, a fabric sticker and a numbered certificate of authenticity. Contains Vol. 1, Vol. 3 with bonus tracks, and a DVD with a True History of The Traveling Wilburys mini-documentary and the five music videos. The Traveling Wilburys were a British-American supergroup consisting of Bob Dylan, George Harrison, Jeff Lynne, Roy Orbison, and Tom Petty. The band recorded two albums in 1988 and 1990, though Orbison died before the second was recorded. Despite Orbison's death, the remaining group members recorded the second and final studio album, which they intentionally misnumbered Traveling Wilburys Vol. 3. The album title is credited to "George being George" - apparently Harrison was making a wry reference to the appearance of a bootleg that served as a sort of Volume 2.

Wakeman, Rick, Jeff Wayne & Kevin Peek - Beyond The Planets [Import] UK $21.98
Have you even wondered what would happen if the king of progressive rock keyboards teamed up with the bloke who wrote The War Of The Worlds rock opera and the guitarist with the late lamented Classical Rock group Sky? Well, you need wonder no longer! Beyond The Planets is essentially the performance of Holst's The Planets in a rock context. Wayne's contribution is limited to the composition of an Overture for the album. As this ends, some brief narration by Patrick Allen is heard. Allen does a great impression of Richard Burton, which when combined with Wayne's distinctive sound, immediately creates echoes of War Of The Worlds. Allen returns a couple of times during the album to link tracks together with further brief narration. The familiar introduction to "Mars" (as used by Rainbow on "Eyes Of The World" among many others) then takes over, and we launch into a full rendition of "The Planets Suite". The music is performed dramatically and faithfully throughout, with Peek using various guitar sounds according to the mood of the piece.

Wilson, Ray - Song For A Friend [Import] UK $29.98
2016 album from the former Stiltskin/Genesis vocalist. Inspired by the many intimate experiences from his acoustic storytelling concerts, Ray decided to write a collection of musical short stories. Stories, simply, about life. Stiltskin guitarist and collaborator, Uwe Metzler, sketched out some acoustic ideas, and the journey began. Moving through jealousy, anger, hurt, regret, disappointment, fate, and love. Ray often exposes his innermost feelings through his music, and the minimalist production on this collection of songs provides a particularly intimate expression of those emotions.

Winter, Johnny - I'm A Bluesman [Import] UK $22.98
Winter, Johnny - Woodstock Revival 10 Year Anniversary Festival 79 CD $17.98
There have been several high profile anniversary reunions for Woodstock 10, 25 and 30 years after this iconic event first took place, but one of the most interesting occurred when many of the original musicians converged on Long Island's Parr Meadows in Brookhaven, New York to celebrate the tenth anniversary. Unlike later events, this was a true reunion for many of the musicians who played the 1969 festival. Johnny Winter was undoubtedly one of the main attractions and festival high points and the combination of Winter with Bobby Torello and Jon Paris makes for immense impact both on the ears and the memory banks. Klondike proudly presents the entire original WBAB-FM broadcast of Johnny Winter live from Woodstock Reunion 1979, at Parr Meadows, Brookhaven, New York on Saturday 8th September 1979. Professionally re-mastered original broadcast with background liners and rare archival photos.

Young, Neil & Promise of the Real - Earth 2PC $20.98

Zappa, Frank - Lumpy Money Project/ object 3PC $29.98
Lumpy Money part of a Zappa Family Trust Project/Object Audio Documentary series celebrates the 40th Anniversary of Frank Zappa's Masterworks 'Lumpy Gravy' & 'We're Only In It For The Money.' Contains unique & rare versions of both legendary albums (released digitally in pristine audio quality for the 1st time), nuggets from the Vault (studio outtakes, single versions, instrumental mixes, FZ interviews) with extensive booklet featuring photos & liner notes from David Fricke & Gail Zappa.

Zappa, Frank - Road Tapes, Venue #1 2PC $21.98
The Road Tapes Series focuses on audio from the Vault that is historical yet sonically less than stellar. Described by the man himself as 'Guerilla Recordings, ' Frank Zappa tried to document every performance. Road Tapes, Venue #1, 1st in the series, takes us to summertime 68, Vancouver, B.C., where the Mothers of Invention played Kerrisdale Arena to an enthusiastic crowd. Captured on mono reel-to-reel, the concert is inspired and showcases a mixture of classic Mothers & live improvisations.

Zappa, Frank - Road Tapes, Venue #2 2PC $21.98
Road Tapes, Venue #2 takes us back to August '73 in Helsinki, Finland. The performances, compiled from 3 shows at Finlandia Hall, are recorded by engineer Kerry McNabb while on his first tour with FZ. This band consists of a lineup that is often regarded as one of FZ's finest. Stars like George Duke, Jean Luc Ponty and Ruth Underwood shine. The compositions become increasingly challenging yet still maintain the humor expected at a live Zappa show. A potent and rewarding release.

Zappa, Frank - Road Tapes, Venue #3 2PC $21.98
Road Tapes, Venue #3 features two complete shows from Tyrone Guthrie Theater in Minneapolis, MN. The July '70 Mothers line-up featured Flo & Eddie, George Duke, Ian Underwood, Aynsley Dunbar & Jeff Simmons. FZ's vast Vault does not contain many full shows from this time period, so that alone makes this release a special one. The tapes were recorded to stereo reel-to-reel, but not without problems. Due to their historical relevance, we felt it was worth it, warts 'n all! Venue #3 does not disappoint.

Deluxe DVD/CD Edition. On Saturday, August 16th, 1980 Rainbow took to the stage to headline the first rock festival to be staged at Castle Donington. It was the culmination of the band s tour in support of the hugely successful Down To Earth album, released in 1979, and would prove to be the last live show featuring this particular line-up of the band: Ritchie Blackmore (guitars), Don Airey (keyboards), Graham Bonnet (vocals), Roger Glover (bass) and Cozy Powell (drums). The set featured tracks from the then-new album alongside classics from earlier in their career. There are virtuoso solo spots for Blackmore, Airey and Powell which serve to highlight the sheer musical prowess in the band. The show climaxes with Ritchie Blackmore destroying his guitar and thrusting it into an amp which promptly bursts into flames before fireworks burst overhead at the conclusion of an explosive show.

Russell, Leon - A Poem Is A Naked Person (Criterion Coillection) - Restored, Special Edition, Widescreen Blu-Ray $34.98
Les Blank (Burden of Dreams) considered this free-form feature documentary about beloved singer-songwriter Leon Russell, filmed between 1972 and 1974, to be one of his greatest accomplishments. Yet it has not been released until now. Hired by Russell to film him at his recording studio in northeast Oklahoma, Blank ended up constructing a unique, intimate portrait of a musician and his environment. Made up of mesmerizing scenes of Russell and his band performing, both in concert and in the studio, as well as off-the-cuff moments behind the scenes, this singular film has attained legendary status over the years. It's a work of rough beauty that serves as testament to Blank's cinematic daring and Russell's immense musical talents.

Live in Sweden 1987 Johnny Winter with Dr. John - Blues legend Johnny Winter is joined by the equally legendary Dr. John on Swedish TV, recorded in 1987. From the opening notes of Sound the Bell to the finale of a positively incendiary Jumpin Jack Flash, Winter is in great form. The blues and rock take a side trip to New Orleans when the masterful Dr. John joins the band on piano. Bonus song: Prodigal Son from 1972!

Wishbone Ash - Live in Paris 2015 DVD $19.98
In this era of DVDs and Online-Downloads, we wanted to offer a selection of songs that people have not heard them play live so frequently, alongside some much loved favorites. The song selection therefore, reflects the later evolution of the band with some recent material like the atmospheric 'Heavy Weather' from the Elegant Stealth album as well as some 'deep tracks' from the band's long history. Hidden gems like 'Leaf and Stream' from the Argus album, have rarely been featured in live performance, for example. The same is also true for songs like 'Front Page News' and 'Surface To Air' from later recordings in the 1970s. - This intimate 8 camera shoot of the band playing in Paris over the course of 3 nights, features the best performances of the concert residency at Le Triton Theatre during the spring of 2015. We think you will enjoy this production whether you are a casual Ash fan or a diehard completist. Recorded over 3 nights at Le Triton Paris May 2015 - Part of "Jailbait" is used for the closing titles and fade out.

And the powerful three part title composition which addresses the trials and tribulations of recovery from addiction - moves through sorrow to hopefulness and joy.

Blues Magoos - Mercury Singles (1966-1968) $14.98
In their '60's heyday, the Blues Magoos were one of the first garage-punk bands to achieve mainstream success, and one of the first to embrace psychedelia. Early in their existence, the Bronx-bred quintet's high-energy live sets made them a popular attraction on the Greenwich Village club scene. Once they began making records, they quickly emerged as one of one of the earliest and most inventive exponents of the psychedelic sound. The band's 1966 debut album Psychedelic Lollipop and it's 1967 follow up Electric Comic Book, are two of that period's most beloved and enduring albums.

Original soundtrack to the 2016 motion picture. Miles Ahead is Don Cheadle's wildly entertaining and moving exploration of Miles Davis.

These cues include "What's Wrong with That?" a jam that closes the movie imagining Cheadle as Miles playing in the present day with guest performers Glasper, Herbie Hancock, Wayne Shorter, Gary Clark, Jr. And Esperanza Spalding; plus "Gone 2015," an end-credits song featuring guest verses from rapper Pharoahe Monch. Cheadle also pens new liner notes for the album discussing the selection and creation of the songs on the soundtrack.

Eno, Brian - The Ship with Booklet $15.98
Eno, Brian - Ship with Booklet, Deluxe Edition $17.98
Originally conceived from experiments with three dimensional recording techniques and formed in two, interconnected parts, The Ship is almost as much musical novel as traditional album. Eno brings together beautiful songs, minimalist ambience, physical electronics, omniscient narratives and technical innovation into a single, cinematic suite. The album opens with the 21-minute eponymously titled 'The Ship' on which Eno's cyclically sung sea-chant builds in ominous drama, followed by 'Fickle Sun', a song in three movements. The first continues where 'The Ship' left but with Eno's voice sounding more upfront, determined, even despairing. The albums finale is a Lou Reed penned cover of The Velvet Underground's 'I'm Set Free', a band who were famously credited by Eno as the inspiration behind his early music explorations as an art student. The Limited collector's edition comes in a beautiful cloth bound case with a spot gloss cover and four individual art cards.

Mayall, John & the Bluesbreakers - Live in 1967- Volume 2 CD $14.98
Live archive release. In 1967, before there was a Fleetwood Mac, Peter Green, John McVie and Mick Fleetwood were John Mayall's Bluesbreakers. The four musicians were only together for three months, which makes it even more remarkable that a staunch fan from Holland was able to sneak a one channel reel to reel tape recorder into five London clubs and capture this exciting glimpse into music history. For almost 50 years these tapes have remained unheard until John recently got them and began restoring them with the technical assistance of Eric Corne of Forty Below Records. Corne adds "While the source recording was very rough and the final result is certainly not hi-fidelity, it does succeed in allowing us to hear how spectacular these performances are."

McGuinn, Clark & Hillman - Armadillo World Headquarters Austin TX 1979 CD $17.98
The McGuinn, Clark & Hillman project came when the three founding members of The Byrds undertook a triple-bill tour with their respective solo bands in Europe in 1977. The subsequent reunion two years later was felt to be an extension of what the original band had accomplished -- and no disco lick from their latest album could dilute it. Their legendary appearance together at the famed Armadillo World Headquarters in Austin, Texas, on May 22, 1979, survives as one of only a handful of FM broadcasts that capture the pivotal essence of the legendary Byrds.

Roach, Steve - Second Nature CD $16.98
Pushing the boundaries of perception-expanding music, Steve Roach and Robert Logan release two vastly different albums ('Second Nature', here on CD, and 'Biosonic') which serve as transmissions of powerful emotion and exploration - a blending of man and machine. 'Biosonic's elegant futurism and 'Second Nature's romantic minimalism are distinct, yet intimately linked within subtle, pulsing, body-mind states. The former's darkly ecstatic, deeply-layered, electro-neural atmosphere contrasts with the latter's nuanced, spare, ambient-atmospheric piano tone paintings.

Rocchi, Claudio - In Alto CD $9.98

Rundgren, Todd - For Lack of Honest Work [Import] UK - 3PC $24.98
Three CD set. Todd Rundgren's live shows are notoriously unpredictable, and on one tour he'll be a four-on-the-floor guitar hero, the next he'll be the ravemaster, jamming along with synthesized EDM backing tracks, or the solo troubadour fudging away at the dimly lit intersection of Memory Lane and Tin Pan Alley. As such, any attempt at compiling the best moments of his live recordings requires not only a large bucket, but an open mind, and his ardent and devoted fan base is often divided over which Todd they prefer. Newly annotated by acknowledged Rundgren expert Paul Myers, this compilation of board mixes, demos and live in-studio recordings, arranged roughly in chronological order, provides a history of Todd Rundgren live, a necessarily eclectic selection of audio snapshots of a true star at work.

Rundgren, Todd - Live at the Forum: London 1994 2PC $19.98
In October 1994 Todd performed two concerts at The Forum in London's Kentish Town, which were captured on tape. This set is derived from these recordings and captures this unique performer at yet another key stage in his career, with a set comprising material from No World Order alongside classic material from his wide ranging and diverse back catalogue. Live At The Forum perfectly captures the energy and excitement of a memorable tour.

Samurai of Prog - Lost & Found [Import] UK - 2PC $32.98
The Samurai of Prog will release their new double album, “Lost and Found”, this summer. Working with original members of Pavlov’s Dog, Lift, Cathedral, Odyssey, and Quill, the band has discovered lost prog epics from the 1970s. Because of dissolving record contracts, band line-up changes, and the shifting landscape of popular music, these amazing compositions were never properly recorded...until now! The Samurai have created stunning, brand-new versions, and the result is a prog-lover’s paradise. The recording is audiophile quality. The band remains the core trio of Marco Bernard, Kimmo Porsti and Steve Unruh, plus Stefan Renstrom and Tom Doncourt. Special guests include Jon Davison (Yes), Mark Trueack (UPF, Unitopia), K. Alan Shikoh (Glass Hammer), David Myers (The Musical Box, solo artist), Linus Kase (Änglagard), Chip Gremillion (Lift), Keith Christian (Quill), Johan Oijen (Brighteye Brison), and Steve Scorfina (Pavlov’s Dog). Album includes a 57 minute-track “The Demise” written by Ken DeLoria and other Quill members.

His startling interpretations add a haunting authenticity to the live shows. This live CD (part 2 out in October) is a first - no one has dared take on Gabriel's material at this level before. These immaculate arrangements show a live band brewing something deep from these original musical recipes. The Security Project tours worldwide. A West Coast tour coincides with this release in May and an East Coast one in October.

Now for the first time ever the crucial and most creative period of Johnny Winter's career is compiled on this thirty-six song, two CD set, covering the years 1965 to 1968. The sound Winter was creating during these three short years, varied from Byrds and Dylan influenced folk-rock (Avocado Green, The World Turns All Around Her, Leavin' Blues) to psychedelic (Birds Can't Row Boats, Take A Chance On My Love, Livin' In The Blues, Comin' Up Fast) to the blues (Be Careful With A Fool, Goin' Down Slow, Kind Hearted Woman, Pneumonia Blues) to hard rock (Hook You and Rock Me).

Young, Dennis - Wave: Electronic Music 1984-1988 CD $17.98
Dennis Young is best known as the percussionist of the New York band Liquid Liquid, who are themselves known for their 1983 track Cavern, sampled the same year by Grandmaster Flash for White Lines. In parallel to his work with Liquid Liquid, Young produced his own solo work, including three cassettes released between 1985 and 1988 that form his tribute to the pioneers of electronic music. Wave: Electronic Music 1984-1988 contains the best pieces from these cassettes, as selected by Young himself. Those who don't know otherwise might guess that this music originated in the '70s. As Young recalls, My love for electronic music goes back to the late 70's when I decided to buy my first synthesizer, a rare used vintage Davolisint made in Italy, after seeing Keith Emerson perform live with ELP. This lead to my discovery of more electronic music artists using synthesizers such as Klaus Schulze, Tim Blake, Larry Fast, Edgar Froese, Brian Eno, and Cluster just to name a few. -Dennis Young
