A.R. & Machines - Die Grune Reise (1971) A.R. Machines (or Achim Reichel) debut album is not just a classic kraut rock. Chronologically placed somewhere between early genre's works, this album is a strange, hypnotic and repetitive combination of guitar loops, unusual drumming and pop-elements. Heavily psychedelic, this work are more similar to some Brian Eno early works, but has nothing too much in common with many later classic kraut rock jazzy works.
A BOLHA - Um Passo A Frente After venturing to England to attend the Isle of Wight Festival, they decided to experiment with a heavier sound, more akin to UK bands of that era (Deep Purple, Cream, King Crimson, Humble Pie, with a little Beatles' White Album in for good measure) than that of their Brazilian cohorts. A name change to A Bolha later, still loaded with verve and swagger, fueled by drugs, they recorded their first album, which has secured a permanent place as one of the best hard psych rock albums to ever emerge from South America. Released in 1973 by the Continental label, the reissue of this masterpiece of the Brazilian rock, the LP is a replica in a gatefold cover, and includes the infamous hard- rocking 1971 single as bonus tracks."
A PASSING FANCY British influenced pop with elements of psychedelia and an American garage sound. The sound quality is superb and is taken from the original master tapes. An exciting and long lost piece of the early Canadian music scene that has thankfully been restored and made available once again for all to hear and a new generation to discover.
THE ABSTRACTS - from Long Island, N.Y. are best known for their classic song "Always, Always". As one of the first US bands to create an American answer to the British Invasion, their songs were already written and a master plan already in the works when the Beatles started their meteoric rise in the US. But like many of the first wave UK beat bands, The Abstracts were together only for a little more than two years and split when rock and roll moved into a direction that wasn't theirs. Though during this short period, with their storming and ingenuous beat, they recruited a huge following and accomplished a great deal. They were one of the first bands to utilize a light show and besides their sole 45, their legacy contains a cache of unreleased period recordings, some of them made for Columbia Records in 1964. Finally, over four decades later, this album collects the band's entire studio material alongside two excellent sounding 1966 live tracks. An in-depth insert with a wealth of never-before-seen-photos traces the history of the band that brought "Abstractmania" to the New York area in the sixties. It's a pleasure for Break-A-Way Records to celebrate the return of The Abstracts and hear them shout again, "Hey, Let's Go Now"...
ABSTRACT TRUTH - Totem This is the debut release by South African prog/jazz/folk/psych band, Abstract Truth. this is excellent early '70s melodic, wistful freak-rock blended with African rhythms in an assorted panoply of instruments: keyboards, flutes, electric guitars, saxophone, percussion, etc. A refreshing approach with an eastern touch. If you like UK bands such as Quintessence, If and Bloodwyn Pig, this album goes in the same direction. It is more trippy/stoned and acoustic than their follow-up from the same year, Silver Trees. Ken E. Henson on guitar, vocals and sitar; Robbie Pavid on percussion; Brian Gibson on bass & vocals; Sean Bergin on sax & flute. .
AFTER ALL - Hailing from Florida, After All was formed by well-experienced musicians with an R&B, jazz, and blues background who hooked up with poetry writer Linda Hargrove to record an ambitious album influenced by acid-rock and psychedelic, early progressive sounds. Originally released in 1969 on the Athena label, the album is now considered an obscure classic. Top level psych/prog dominated by Hammond organ, guitar, and explosive drumming. Here's a welcome new reissue in original artwork plus remastered sound, insert with liner notes, and 180 gram vinyl.
THE AGE OF REASON - Reason First ever vinyl reissue of this US' 69 private album by this ad-hoc studio band project featuring ex-Telstars bass player Terry Gorka plus drummer Bill Manning, lead guitarist Billy Windsor and keyboard player Tommy Dildy. Heavy bluesy / soulish / R&B club jamming sound full of powerful Hammond organ, hard guitar and passionate vocals, not unlike early Vanilla Fudge. Devastating covers of The Band's 'This wheel's on fire', Savoy Brown's 'Stay with me baby' and Sonny Bono's (via Nancy Sinatra / Vanilla Fudge / Terry Reid) 'Bang Bang' among others plus some choice originals. Starring guitar legend Danny Gatton on two tracks.
ILDEFONSO AGUILAR - Erosion Spooky, meditative soundscapes inspired by the desolate volcanic environment of Lanzarote (Canary Islands), created using Minimoog, Polymoog, vocal loops, and field recordings. Originally recorded in Germany in 1978 by Spanish painter/sound artist Ildefonso Aguilar. Erosión is a masterpiece of proto-ambient, isolationism, and minimal synth music. For the first time ever, Erosión is reissued here on double LP, featuring the complete recordings, as Ildefonso conceived it at the time. Master tape sound; Liner notes in English/Spanish by Frankie Pizá (TIU Mag); Includes download code. RIYL: Edgar Froese, Conrad Schnitzler, Cluster, Klaus Schulze, Michael Stearns, Steve Roach, Brian Eno, Cozmic Corridors, Pina.
AGITATION FREE - 2nd Reissue of 1973 album by this German band. A masterpiece of progressive rock as they fell some more into this style and added a mellotron. Moving in a more progressive rock direction it's possibly better than the bands debut, full of trippy guitar work and spaced psych effects. It also features the bands only proper song "Haunted Island" based on an Edgar Allen Poe story. Convincing and innovative compositions.
AGITATION FREE - Fragments "Agitation Free are one of the most highly acclaimed bands in the field of krautrock music. This fourth vinyl edition (after the successful releases of Malesh, 2nd, and Last) comes from Made in Germany and is limited to 1000 numbered copies."
AGITATION FREE - Last Third album, originally released in 1976, now reissued on 180 gram vinyl with the original artwork. Featuring live jams recorded in '73 and '74, this is a psych prog jewel from these Krautrock legends. Includes in depth liner notes."
AIRTO FOGO - S/T Airto Fogo's sole album from 1976 is one of the best instrumental jazz-funk/rare-groove albums ever recorded in France. Heavy drums, Rhodes, analog keyboards, deep bass, hot horns, with Blaxploitation and Latin touches -- A Euro funk holy grail. RIYL: Placebo, CCPP, The J.B's, Eumir Deodato, Ben & The Platano Group, Godchild.
AK MUSICK - (S/T) 1972 Radical, freaked-out sound with hints of free-jazz, improv and avant-garde, A wide arrangement of instruments were used: clarinet, cello, oboe, organ, piano, darbuka, tam-tam, ektare, flute, zither. Includes the amazing "Impro-Vision" which sounds like electronic music, but using only natural instruments. RIYL: Anima, Annexus Quam, Albrecht D, Gulda, Nihilist Spasm Band, Nurse With Wound
ALRUNE ROD - S/T ROCK DANISH PSYCH! FOR FANS OF ARTHUR BROWN'S KINGDOM COME/PINK FLOYD/VAN DER GRAF GENERATOR)
GLI ALLUMINOGENI - Scolopendra "A trio from Turin, formed in 1970 by keyboard player Alluminio (hence the name of the band) and drummer Ostorero with various guitarists, they only lasted for a couple of years and their only album, Scolopendra, was issued when they had already split. Their sole album is very well made, mainly based on Hammond organ and other keyboards, with good instrumental parts and an outstanding B-side. A must-have for lovers of Italian prog! New vinyl reissue with the original artwork, label replicas and remastered sound." Gatefold sleeve.
ALTONA - (S/T) (1974) A great album from a time when the German prog scene was getting a bit tighter than before – going for shorter tracks and more focused instrumentation – but all without losing any of the sharpness that first got them going! There's lots of jazzy changes at the core of the album – a fast-moving mix of saxes and guitar, driven by bass and drums – by a group that features Wolfgang Wulff and Michael Von Ronn on tenors, plus Karl Heinz Blumenberg on soprano and baritone, plus vocals as well. The strong use of saxes really makes the music great – even when the guitars hit some harder rock moments – and titles include "Cocopus", "Uberlandfahrt", "7/4", "Hide Yourself", "Frustration", and "Boulevard".
AME SON - Catalyse CATALYSE (1970 RELEASE-GATEFOLD SLEEVE! THE ALBUM WAS CONCEIVED PRETTY QUICKLY, AND IT HAS A SPONTANEOUS, ENERGETIC PSYCHEDELIC/FREE ROCK FEEL WITH A PSYCHEDELIC PROG SOUND THAT DRINKS FROM THE SAME SPRINGS AS BANDS SUCH AS GONG, THE SOFT MACHINE, THE PINK FLOYD, AND GURU GURU. AME SON WERE ONE OF THE EARLIEST FRENCH ROCK BANDS TO GO BEYOND THE CONVENTIONAL ROCK & ROLL OF THE TIME, AND CATALYSE IS CONSIDERED TO BE ONE OF THE FIRST TRULY PROGRESSIVE/UNDERGROUND EFFORTS IN FRANCE. LIMITED EDITION OF 500 COPIES!)
AMBOY DUKES - Journey To the Center of the Mind (Mainstream/180 gram) LP Exact repro edition of this LP, originally issued in 1968. The guitarist of this group is a rather unfortunate human being and we can't bring ourselves to print his full name, sorry. "Journey to the Center of the Mind, The Amboy Dukes' second album, was released in April 1968 on Mainstream Records. The cover features 50 different marijuana smoking devices. The title track was released as a single and climbed the U.S. pop chart to number 16. *** ****** wrote the music for Steve Farmer's lyrics, even though ****** had never smoked a joint in his entire life."
AMON DUUL II - Made In Germany A big international record from Amon Duul – and for good reason, too – as the set's filled with catchy little tracks that have this really cool blend of prog and glam! The style's almost like Roxy Music at points – with the vocals all compressed in the guitars, and this sinister vibe in the instrumentation – played by a group who clearly know how to stretch out more, but instead pack a lot of experimentation into shorter, groovier space. The vocals are in English, but accented – which gives them a further offbeat vibe – and titles include "The King's Chocolate Waltz", "Emigrant Son", "La Krautoma", "Metropolis", "Gala Gnome", and "Mr Kraut's Jinx".
AMOS KEY - The First Key Amos Key is a classically influenced symphonic prog rock band from Germany. Their line-up and the leading role of keyboards puts them in a group of 70's bands, such as ELP, Ekseption or Deep Purple, while Triumvirat and Tyburn Tall are the closest german bands to Amos Key in that era. "First Key" was their first and sadly their last album. Their musical identity is evident from the moment the first notes of the album come out of the speakers. Heavy keyboard-orientated prog reminding of Keith Emerson's style. However, Amos Key were not an ELP (or Nice) clone, especially due to the comparativelly more "catchy" character of their songs. Apart from the wonderful melodies and solos of Thomas Molin, the bass lines of Andreas Gross are pounding throughout the album.
ANALOGY - Konzert This latest publication was recorded during the band's concert in Lamezia Terme on 14 April 2012
ANGELES DE OPIO - S/T An underground heavy-psych power trio formed in 2005 by Spanish guitar god JC Sisto (Mater Dronic, Shakti's Delirium) plus Sergio and Adrián Ceballos (RIP KC, Melange). Two side-long tracks of wild acid-fuzz-wah guitar jamming. You all know that JC Sisto is a killer guitar player but on these recordings he pushes his guitar to the stratosphere without any limits. 100% acid-fried guitar damage which brings to mind fellow Japanese travellers like High Rise or Mainliner and '70s hard-rock beasts like Stoned Guitar era Human Instinct. File under: Loud-In-Your-Face-Heavy-Psychedelic-Rock.
ANIMA SOUND - Musik Fur Alle "First ever vinyl reissue of their Musik Für Alle album, one of the rarest private pressings in the Krautrock scene. 1971 Two long pieces, 17 minute long improvisations titled 'N Da Da Uum Da' and 'Traktor Go Go Go', were to be privately released as an LP on their own Altepfarhof label. By some, these two tracks 'can surely be considered as one of the best psychedelic experiences ever created, due to the intensity of the recording.' On their performance the group produced many wonderful and inspired sounds, many of them coming from Paul Fuch's self-built instruments, and counted with the post-production collaboration of Neubauer's Echolette Ringmodulater. The Wah Wah reissue has been properly licensed from Limpe Fuchs herself, reproduces the original cover art and features an insert with photos."
ANIMATED EGG - GUITAR FREAKOUT (1968 RELEASE-DOUBLE ALBUM-GATEFOLD SLEEVE! STUPENDOUS PSYCHEDELIC EXPOITATION ALBUM LED BY GUITARIST JERRY COLE! SECOND DISC INCLUDES ADDITIONAL TRACKS FROM 1967-1968 BY OTHER JERRY COLE-RELATED PROJECTS: THE GENERATION GAP, T. SWIFT AND THE ELECTRIC BAG, THE PROJECTION COMPANY, & THE STONE CANYON ROCK GROUP)
ANNEXUS QUAM - Beziehungen A much more jazzy effort which headed straight into free jazz territory but retaining the typical inventive touch of the band. Much more space was given to free improvisation, with tracks like the two-part 'Leyenburg' coming out as free-form music whereas the 16-minute long track 'Dreh Ducht Nicht Um' bridged the gap between their two albums by combining the progressive fusion sonorities of Osmose with some brilliant free jamming. A classic album that is recommended to the lovers of the experimental leg of Krautrock and progressive musics as well as fans of all things free. Strictly limited to 500 copies -- single cover -- sealed copies w/ info sticker. Includes the bonus 1970 track 'Kollodium!'"
ANONYMOUS - Inside the Shadows "Originally released in 1976 in an edition of 300 copies, the sole album by Indianapolis' Anonymous stands today as a high-water mark in rock 'n' roll, combining the adventure of west coast ballroom groups, the 12-string majesty of Byrds, and breathtaking multi-part harmonies to forge something inimitable and one-of-a-kind, with powerful songs that pushed the limit and raised the bar at the same time. Long time top ten favorite with almost every head we know, a true classic recommended for everyone into amazing rock records of all varieties."
EMILIO APARICIO MOOG - Expansion Galactica Works of Guatemalan electronic experimental musician Emilio Aparicio, collecting five 45s he released from 1969-1971. Aparicio was an, a pioneer in using the Moog synth in Latin America. He released a series of private 45s, recorded at his home studio in collaboration with his patron and producer, the painter Roberto Abularach. It is from 1969-1971, when the recordings included here, were registered. Most of the tracks were written at the country house of Abularach, where Emilio built his own home recording studio and where he spent long periods of seclusion. It is in this house where they also spent weeks experimenting with hallucinogens (LSD and datura) in the company of other artists from the underground arts scene of Guatemala. The fruit of those two years of experimentation were released in less than one month as five volumes of a 45 housed in a generic picture sleeve and titled Música Electrónica ("Electronic Music"). These strange records were given away in exchange of four corks of a local drink called Salvavidas Roja, related to Abularach's family. Most of the 45s were destroyed and recycled and soon after Emilio created another experimental project, La Banda Plástica. Aparicio's music is a fascinating blend of primitive homemade electronics with Latin influences. Imagine "Psyche Rock" era Pierre Henry (1970), Gershon Kingsley, and Bruce Haackmeeting Joe Meek at the Guatemalan jungle. Emilio Aparicio passed away on 2012. Remastered sound; Insert with rare photos and liner notes by Ruffy Tnt (Discodelic).
APHRODITE'S CHILD - End of the World Aphrodite’s Child was Vangelis’ (Papathanassiou) and Demis Roussos’ first step to international fame. They have recorded 3 albums between 1969 and 1972 full of excellent pop, psychedelic and/or progressive rock tracks. This is their first album, featuring international hits like “End of the World” and “Rain and Tears”.
APHRODITE'S CHILD - 666 Stunning 180 gram double LP vinyl set taken from the original analogue master tapes. Pressed by Music On Vinyl exclusively for the Missing Vinyl label of Greece.
ARACHNOID (S/T) This 1979 record is the unique album from the french band ARACHNOÏD, architects of a dark progressive and psychedelic masterpiece, with a KING CRIMSON flavor. “Arachnoid” is not only one of the best classic symphonic rock albums of the second half of the 70’s, but also the most complicated and intriguing.
APOTEOSI (S/T) Their self-titled album from 1975 contains lofty musical ideals and is a conceptual work inspired by their homeland of Calabria in Southern Italy. Their main influences included UK giants ELP, Yes and Genesis, and the Italian big three of PFM, Banco and Le Orme. Despite the band members' tender years, they were technically accomplished musicians and their compositions have strong classical overtones. The album features the delicate female vocals of Silvana Idà, who also sang on some folk singles released on her father's label, although the disc is noteworthy for the lengthy instrumental passages spearheaded by brother Massimo's keyboards, which include Hammond B3 organ, Eminent string ensemble and Arp Pro-Soloist synthesizer. This album is definitely one for fans of melodic, keyboard-driven music, with 14-year old Massimo's expressive piano-playing being the cornerstone of the album.
AQUILA (S/T) Led by Blonde On Blonde's guitarist Ralph Denyer and produced by Patrick Campbell-Lyons of ('60s) Nirvana, Aquila added sax and flute to their rock base to create some spellbinding music. Originally issued in August 1970, their sole album is a lost progressive classic that has been compared to the work of Audience, Family, Gravy Train and Raw Material, and makes its long-awaited return
ARCESIA - Reachin' The album was released in a private edition of 300 copies and most of them were given away to family and friends. In the late '80s, one of those copies was unearthed by record dealer Paul Major, who was one of the first people to appreciate the singularity of Reachin' Arcesia. Since then, the album, which mixes over-the-top crooner vocals with late '60s acid-rock and pop arrangements, has developed a reputation as a lounge-psych/real people masterpiece. Remastered and presented in a gatefold sleeve with the original artwork on the back and a new cover design on the front. Includes insert with lyrics. Features detailed liner notes and rare photos in the inner gatefold, telling the real story of John Arcesi.
ARK - Voyages Legendary USA private psychedelic album, a top-level rarity issued in a tiny edition of 100 copies in 1978. Really impressive concept album with religious/spiritual lyrics, raw basement sound, strong song-writing and superb musicianship. It combines some drifting, mellow tracks with some fuzz-rockers. "Monster top 5 US psychedelic garage LP. Eerie folk-rock, Doors-sounding spookers with a smattering of D.R. Hooker lounge/mind psychedelia thrown in, great drifty acid jams, desert wind effects, air raid sirens ... all the right moves & attitude." --Paul Major
ARMAGGEDON - (ST) One of the best and rarest early '70s German heavy progressive rock albums. It was originally released on the legendary Kuckuck label in 1970 and nowadays it is regarded as one of the finest heavy rock albums of the early '70s. It contains great originals and an excellent version of Spooky Tooth's 'Better By You, Better Than Me.' This album, is a perfect example of the early '70s German progressive Krautrock scene and should be part of every serious '70s progressive rock collection. English lyrics." Also includes a cover of Jeff Beck's "Rice Pudding."
THE ART OF LOVIN' - (S/T) (RI/180 GRAM) - This US bands sole 1968 release, originally on Mainstream, and very much in a similar bag to The Growing Concern / Love Exchange / Peanut Butter Conspiracy with female / male vocal harmonies and a Jefferson Airplane acid rock feel. Includes an excellent version of Tim Hardin's "How Can We Hang On To A Dream?". A great album and praised in Fuzz Acid & Flowers.
ASTRO SOUNDS FROM BEYOND THE YEAR 2000 The Astro-Sound of Magnificence, from Beyond the Year 2000...a unique capsule of a funky, psychedelic rhythm section jamming, with snarling, stabbing and swooshing cranked-up-to-infinity electric guitar voyages piloted by Wrecking Crew veteran Jerry Cole, polished and primed for takeoff with a string section playing eerie, beckoning melodies in unison.
ATLANTIDE - Francesco Ti RicordiIssued in Germany in 1976, singing in Italian, and with a very different style from the typical production of the time, being a hard-rock album with very small prog influences and based on the good fuzz guitar playing of Mimmo Sanseverino. The record is very well played and includes six long tracks varying in length from 5 minutes to the 11:15 of the long La luna.
ATMOSPHERA - (S/T) A limited edition release (150 copies on black vinyl) of a previously unissued work from 1977. Atmosphera was a band from Israel featuring guitarist and singer Efraim Barak, who'd previously released the LP 'Peace' with his -previous-progressive band, Zingale. With Atmosphera he recorded material in the vein of Yes. Barak's high voice certainly reminds of Jon Anderson and Atmosphera's music is definitely of interest for fans of the UK's '70s prog scene.
AUNT MARY - Barbed Wire Waves (Live 1971) BARBED WIRE WAVES (AUNT MARY WAS ONE OF THE LEADING NORWEGIAN BANDS DURING THE EARLY SEVENTIES. THEY CAME FROM FREDRIKSTAD, BUT WENT TO LIVE IN DENMARK WHERE THEIR FIRST SELF TITLED ALBUM WAS RELEASED IN 1970. IN ADDITION TO TOURING EXTENSIVELY THEY ALSO DID COUPLE OF RADIO SHOWS INCLUDING ONE IN STOCKHOLM FOR SWEDISH RADIO AT OCTOBER 1971, RECORDED LIVE WITH NO OVERDUBS AND GOOD SOUND QUALITY. SO HERE YOU HAVE 4 TRACKS INCL. A 6 MIN. EXTENDED VERSION OF IN THE HALL OF THE MOUNTAIN KING AND 2 PREVIOUSLY UNRELEASED TRACKS THAT SHOULD HAVE APPEARED ON THEIR SECOND ALBUM BUT RECORD LABEL SOMEHOW LOST THEM THE DEMO AND SOON AFTER JAN GROTH LEFT. THESE TWO TRACKS ARE AMONG THE MORE HEAVY STUFF THEY DID WITH IMPRESSIVE ELECTRIC GUITAR AND ORGAN.)
AZITIS - Help Vinyl reissue of rare 1971 Christian psychedelic concept record that some consider one of the best in the genre. This deluxe reissue is pressed on 180-gram vinyl, with sound from the original master tapes. The artwork and labels are reproduced form the original LP. Limited edition of 750 copies.
BACHS - Out of the Bachs '60s garage-psych moody monster! Out of The Bachs was originally released in 1968 as a private pressing of 150 copies; it's one of the rarest USA '60s garage/teenbeat albums ever, Out of The Bachs offers 12 amazing self-penned songs with a sound ahead of its time. Pure teenage-angst vocals, crashing Rickenbackers, fuzz outbursts, killer moody tracks... Sadly, all previous reissues of the album failed to capture the true sound of the original, until the Time-Lag label reissued it in 2011 with remastered sound from a pristine original vinyl copy. This reissue uses the same audio master as the out-of-print Time-Lag edition. File next to The Rising Storm, The Fantastic Dee-Jays, The Savages. Includes insert with detailed liner notes and rare photos.
BARDS - MOSES LAKE RECORDINGS CLEARSPOT presents on 180 gram vinyl and housed in nice hardcarton sleeve! for the first time ever, the great Pacific Northwest band that released over a dozen 45s on both the Piccadilly, Parrot and Capital labels. They opened for such national acts as THE TURTLES and PAUL REVERE & THE RAIDERS. This is their previously unreleased LP from 1968, produced by CURT BOETCHER and KEITH OLSEN, who teamed up on THE ASSOCIATION's recording and many others out of LA in the 60's. From the master tapes. Experimental and psychedelic in nature, it features outstanding keyboard, vocals and fuzz-driven guitar work.
THE BATCH - Wait 'Til Tomorrow Priceless 60s and 70's rarities w insert) 180 gram
BAZAR - Drabantbyrock Bazar was one of the hardest-working progressive bands from Scandinavia. This is the first reissue of their killer second album from 1974. Wah-wah-fuelled guitar action, organ, flute, melodic vocals, and radical lyrics. Drabantbyrock combines heavy numbers, West Coast guitar jams, and dreamy moments, featuring the superb guitar playing of Bent Patey. Kick-ass psychedelic/progressive hard rock from Norway, highly recommended for those into Swedish hard rock bands such as November. 24-bit remastering. Includes insert with liner notes by Klemen Breznikar (It's Psychedelic Baby!) and photos. Features original artwork in gatefold sleeve.
BENT WIND - Sussex "The Holy Grail of Canadian rock, this raw, murky slab of heavy psych was released by local indie label Trend in autumn 1970 and immediately sank without a trace. Over the decades, however, obsessive fans and collectors of the era's unsung greats gradually came to recognize the obscure Toronto band's genius, the now impossible-to-find original LP eventually trading hands for $5000+ plus in the rare vinyl market. After years of bootlegs, compact discs and pricey European pressings, this mythical Canadian LP is finally available at home in its intended format for the first time in 44 years."
