AMMAMMMusic 1966 ... LP
Elektra/Black Truffle (UK), 1966. New Copy (reissue)... $20.99
Noisy brilliance from AMM – one of the most important avant acts of the 60s – and an incredible bridge between jazz, psych, and 20th Century classical worlds! The group were a powerhouse on the London scene of the middle of the decade – reportedly a huge influence on Pink Floyd, too – and all these many years later, there's hardly been a record to match the power of this amazing debut – a record that was even more equally amazingly released by Elektra Records on its first pressing! These guys may have made the most noise anyone had in the studio for this set – and that even includes the Velvet Underground, and any 60s electronic musician too – and the legendary lineup features Cornelius Cardew on piano, cello, and transistor radio; Lou Gare on tenor and violin; Eddie Prevost on drums, xylophone, bells, and cymbals; Keith Rowe on guitar and transistor radio; and Lawrence Sheaff on cello, accordion, clarinet, and one more transistor radio. Titles include "Later During A Flaming Riviera Sunset" and "After Rapidly Circling The Plaza". LP, Vinyl record album

Philip GlassComplete Sony Recordings (24CD set) ... CD
Sony, Late 70s/1980s/1990s/Early 2000s. New Copy 24CD ... $89.99 119.98
A stunning collection of sounds from the legendary Philip Glass – a complete set of every single one of his recordings for Columbia Records – which is the label at which he did most of his important music! The set's a treasure trove of modernist musical moments – not just a blueprint for minimalist composition near the end of the 20th century, but also a showcase for the many different paths that mode followed over the years – from vocal performances, through solo moments, ensemble explorations, soundtracks, and more. The box features 24 CDs in all, each with mini LP-styled covers, plus all the original liner notes, more discographical notes, and even librettos for all of the operas. In addition to the three important operas – Einstein On The Beach, Satygraha, and Akhnaten – plus early albums like Glassworks, Dance Pieces, and The Photographer – and the soundtrack to Naqoyqatsi, Solo Piano, Dance Nos 1 to 5, Itaipu, Passages, Organ Works, and more – as well as a bonus CD of recent recordings. A beautiful package – and the only time these works have been presented completely together. CD

VariousExpo 1 ... CD
Deutsche Grammophon, 2017. New Copy 2CD ... $11.99 21.99
Call it neo-classical, post-classical, or whatever you want – there's been a heck of a lot of new sounds and styles happening in the world of "serious" music – recordings that include both newly experimental work from artists who'd previously played in a more conventional mode – and other sounds from composers who finally are getting their due! This collection presents a nicely expansive overview of this great wave of music – surprisingly large in its array, but maybe linked at times by a new sense of understatement – a mode that's different than the bolder sounds of 20th Century classical, and more spacious than late century minimalism – although some of the artists here could certainly be tied to that world too. Most tracks are pulled from the Deutsche Grammophon catalog of the past decade or so – and really resonate well together, given the strength of the selection. Titles include "Clock Winder" by Hilary Hahn and Hauschka, "Vladimir's Blues" by Max Richter, "Marmont Overture" by Chilly Gonzales, "Eclipse" by Thomas Enhco, "Schlaflied" by Sven Helbig, "432" by Joep Beving, "Signals" by Lambert, "Berlin By Overnight" by Max Richter, "Rolling" by Hans Joachim Roedelius and Arnold Kasar, "Portrait Gallery" by Luke Howard, "Letters Of A Traveller" by Olafur Arnalds, "In A Landscape" by John Cage, "Etude No 5" by Philip Glass, and "Duet" by Steve Reich.

VariousL'Avant Garde 1888 to 1970 – Musique Experimentale, Genies, Visionnaires, Revolutionnaires, Incompris, Et Innovateurs Excentriques (3CD set ... CD
Fremeaux & Associates (France), 1900s/1910s/1920s/1930s/1940s/1950s/1960s. New Copy 3CD ... $19.99 29.99
A very unusual look at the sound of the avant garde – one that begins much earlier than most other collections, and that features a fairly wide range of musical genres too! The set offers up a comprehensive look at modern music in many forms – from initial moments in more serious compositional fronts, to the explosion of new means of vocal expression in the early 20th century, with a shift into jazz and soundtrack moments, interspersed with changes taking place in more "serious" music too – all ending up in a late 60s moment when so many different styles exploded and expanded together! As with other packages on the excellent Fremeux label, the whole thing is as much of an historical document as it is a musical delight – with a big booklet of notes in English, to support a total of 45 tracks by artists as diverse as Sun Ra, Erik Satie, Yoko Ono, Charlie Parker, Pierre Schaeffer, Harry Partch, Johnny Guitar Watson, Terry Riley, Ornette Coleman, Pierre Boulez, Edgard Varese, Bix Beiderbecke, Bernard Herrmann, John Cage, Karlheinz Stockhausen, Jelly Roll Morton, Yoko Ono, Art Tatum, George Russell, Gyorgy Ligeti, James P Johnson, and many others – a musical journey that's as vivid as the range of artists listed here!

✨✧ VariousBrian's Imaginary Jukebox – Discreet Ruminations & Oblique 45s ... CD
Righteous (UK), Late 50s/1960s/Early 70s. New Copy 2CD ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
The "Brian" in the title is Brian Eno – as you might guess from that image from Another Green World in the middle of the cover – but the sound of this set is quite different than what you might expect! CD1 imagines the sounds that Eno would talk about informing the music of his youth – tracks that showed up often on jukeboxes stocked to service visiting American GIs, which meant that the were full of raw soul, R&B, and even a bit of jazz – elements that most folks wouldn't tie to Eno, but which you can definitely hear here in arranging and production elements that would show up on his early solo vocal music, and some of the Roxy Music sounds too. Titles include work by The Tokens, Paradons, Lafayettes, Little Willie John, Dinah Washington, Ernie K Doe, Raymond Scott, The Cosmic Rays, Moondog, and Leadbelly. CD2 features more modern moments – a mix of avant jazz, early electronics, and 20th century compositions that tie a more direct link to the ambient universe – titles that include "Dream" by John Cage, "Come Back To Earth With Me" by Louis & Bebe Barron, "Atmospheres (excerpt)" by Gyorgy Ligeti, "Sleepy Time" by Raymond Scott, "Fordommelse" by Elsa Marie Pade, "Rhythmic Variations 1" by Daphne Oram, "Low Speed (excerpt)" by Otto Lueninng, "Ignition" by Tom Dissevelt, "Ectoplasm" by Raymond Scott, and "The Bewitched (Scene 1)" by Harry Partcy.

✨✧ MoondogMoondog – The Viking Of Sixth Avenue ... LP
Honest Jons (UK), 1950s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... Out Of Stock
A long-overdue tribute to the legendary Moondog – one of the true visionaries of American music in the 20th Century! Moondog got his starts as a blind musician working the streets of New York at the end of the 40s, but he did so (as you'll note on the cover photo) with a range of unusual instruments of his own invention, and in a minimal, rhythmic style that linked together primitivism with higher musical ideals. Moondog's often been called "the father of minimalism" – and while his experiments of the 50s prefaced the work of Steve Reich, Terry Riley, and others, his work was also much more personal, and had an earthy intensity that's still tremendously powerful even decades later! This collection is one of the first to dip into the earliest of Moondog's recordings – his recordings for the Mars, SRC, Brunswick, and Moondog labels – which are presented here alongside selected tracks from his albums for Epic and Prestige, also of similar vintage. Nearly all the tracks here offer a very primitive blend of percussion that's sometimes mixed with unusual woodwind or stringed instruments – nearly all of Moondog's own invention – and the package also features some great notes on his long career, plus some photos that are as gripping as the music itself! Titles include "Down Is Up", "Big Cat", "Bumbo", "Rimshot", "Rabbit Hop", "Instrumental Round", "Be A Hobo", "Dog Trot", "Oasis", "2 W 46th Street", and "Why Spend The Dark Night With You".
