Intense improvised session from Alex Machacek (guitars), Jeff Sipe (drums), and Matthew Garrison (bass). Easily the best thing Alex has done since Featuring Ourselves. There is more than enough fireworks from each musician to go around. There is a strong similarity to the electric disc of McGill Manring Stevens "Controlled By Radar". Highly recommended. Comes in a nice digipak.

SEE ALL
  • This album compiles and releases for the very first time all of the studio recordings (as well as two live recordings) made by guitarist and composer Kerry Livgren with the 2nd edition of Kansas, a seven-piece band that immediately preceded the formation of the lineup of the band that the world knows as Kansas. These recordings present a different and fascinating contrast to the music that Kerry would develop and release upon the world with Kansas just a couple of years later. Yet, as composer of all the tracks here, they still have his obvious imprint. In fact, two of the songs here would later reappear in different versions on Kansas' albums; Belexes would show up on the band's self-titled debut album, while Incomudro would appear on their 2nd album, Song For America. With dual keyboards (one of whom doubled on reeds) and an electric saxist/flautist featured in addition to the more standard rock instrumentation, the sound is obviously influenced by jazz/rock pioneers such as Don Ellis, Soft Machine and Frank Zappa and The Mothers Of Invention as well as early progressive rock bands such as Van Der Graaf Generator and King Crimson. Early Recordings From Kansas 1971-73 is an exciting archival release of dark and exploratory early American progressive rock. The fact that these musicians were not able to find success while making this adventurous music in the heartland of agricultural America over 30 years ago should not be a surprise, but the fact that the tapes have survived and are able to finally be presented to the world in an authorized form will give fans of Kansas as well as all fans of early progressive rock a very pleasant surprise. These recordings have been licensed from, and released with the full consent and agreement of all the musicians. Kerry Livgren has returned to the original tapes and worked on all tracks in his studio to present this material in the best possible light. He also contributed liner notes and provided archival photographs.

  • The US "35th Anniversary Edition" is now out of print and truth be told it sounded like crap. This is the UK edition overseen by Kerry Minnear and is light years better. It features better sound, nicer package and a lot of live bonus tracks. One of the greatest prog albums of all time. A cornerstone album for any collection.

  • First album from these excellent Genesis influenced neoproggers.

  • I'm still amazed at the success of this Swedish band. I'm also still amazed to have seen Reine Fiske playing on the Conan O'Brien show a few years ago. Latest album carries on their delicious mix of pop and psychedelia with Fiske laying down the law Landberk style.

  • Latest effort from one of the original enrollees of the New Wave Of British Progressive Rock. Unlike Marillion, IQ has pretty much stayed the course, holding fast to their progressive rock roots. "Dark Matter" is just 5 songs long but clocks in at 50 minutes. Three shorter tunes are framed by the 12 minute "Sacred Ground" and the near 25 minute epic "Harvest Of Souls". To these ears the music reverts back a bit to the 70s influenced sound of "Subterranea". IQ has always seemed to have worn their Genesis influences on their sleeves and it's quite apparent here. A solid release sure to please both fans of classic prog and neoprog as well.LIMITED TIME SPECIAL PRICING

  • Trio of Alex Skolnick (Testament) on guitar, Tim Alexander (Primus) on drums, and Michael Mannring on bass. Although there is some structure to the songs they have a loose improvisational feel. Pretty uncommercial and not at all what you would have expected from a Magna Carta release.

  • Budget priced reissued features different mastering than then Esoteric version and missing the detailed liner notes...but it's a lot less expensive.

  • Second album from this German progressive rock band. It was recorded sometime after Fading Beauty as the band found themselves on the up and coming Sky label. The music had a slightly harder edge but the symphonic elements were still present. The killer was the side long "Judgement Day" which was as good as anything on the debut. Comes with a bonus track.

  • Essential third album from the Mwandishi band. A pure kosmigroov classic in which the ensemble touches on African based rhythms and electric fusion. Hancock and Patrick Gleeson somehow integrate a battery of electric keyboards into the jazz realm but in a way that was organic and seems just about right. A must own.

  • Emerging from the post-Beat era band I Quelli, Premiata Forneria Marconi (or PFM) is one of the most important progressive rock bands of all time. Storia Di Minuto is the album that kicked it off. The interplay between violinist/flautist Mauro Pagani and guitarist Franco Mussida is breathtaking. Keyboardist Flavio Premoli is perhaps one of the most overlooked virtuosos of the progressive rock era - every much the equal of Emerson and Wakeman.
