Max Eastley, Derek Bailey, Coum, & OthersAnother Evening At Logos – 1974/1979/1981 ... LP
Sub Rosa (Belgium), 1974/1979/1981. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... $22.99
An incredible document of the European scene of the 70s – music that shows just how much criss-crossing there was between improvised music and other avant styles that would break free into other scenes in the post-punk years! The record acts as a snapshot of this under-recorded time – and features four different performances, with heavy input from the London scene – all extended improvisations, with a side each of work by Derek Bailey on solo guitar; the Feminist Improvising Group with Georgie Born, Lindsay Cooper, Maggie Nichols, Sally Potter, and Irene Schweizer; the percussive Logos Ensemble with Max Eastly; and the pre-Throbbing Gristle Coum, with Genesis P-Orridge and Cosey Fanni Tutti, working with the Logos Ensemble, which also includes Luc Houtkamp! There's not much in the way of notes – but the music speaks volumes by itself. (Jazz, Out Sound) LP, Vinyl record album

Eric FeremansAntwerp Killer ... LP
Finders Keepers (UK), 1983. New Copy (reissue)... $22.99
A very cool electronic soundtrack for this obscure early 80s slasher film – music that's a lot more complex and sensitive than the usual sounds used for slashers – with a style that reminds us of some of the hippest late 70s music on the Sky Records label! Eric Feremens comes from a relatively similar place – working here on self-built synthesizers, tailored specially to produced these wonderful sounds and tones – not tinny commercial keyboards, but much more thoughtful electronic elements that make the music way more appealing than just its use in a film. In fact, this is one of the few soundtracks of its type that could stand alone as a batch of spacey electronics – far from the schlocky images on the screen. Titles include "Harbour Fight", "Persecution", "Lady", "Hippy Song", and "Beat". (Soundtracks, Out Sound) LP, Vinyl record album

Ariel KalmaMusique Pour Le Reve Et L'Amour ... LP
Black Sweat (Italy), 1981. New Copy 2 LPs (reissue)... $36.99
Music for dreams and love – served up here in a stunning double-length set from Ariel Kalma – who works through the whole thing in one long performance of keyboards and electronics – with no overdubs or other tricks at all! The music has a stretched-out electronic vibe that reminds us of early Tangerine Dream at their spacious best – a way of creating these sounds in a live environment, without the need for later layering – as Kalma handles all keyboards, other instruments, and recording himself! The long work is divided into four sections – one for each side of the record – and appears here on vinyl for the first time ever, as it was originally a cassette-only release.

Manuel GottschingInventions For Electric Guitar ... LP
OMM/MG Art (Germany), 1975. New Copy (reissue)... About May 27, 2016
A wonderful electronic classic from Ash Ra Tempel founder Manuel Goettsching – a record that features nothing but his own guitar experiments, filtered through a variety of effects – but at a level that feels a lot more like a keyboard or analogue electronics workout overall! In fact, the record's maybe a wonderful distillation of the role that guitar played in so many of these great electronic sets from the German scene of the 70s – use of the instrument in ways that are completely different from American or British guitar, and with a great ear towards the more sensitive, longform aspects of the instrument – especially when combined with additional processing – yet all with a style that's a lot more subtle than Frippertronics. "Echo Waves" is a 17+ minute, uber-hypnotic piece that's another case of material living up to the title, one that reminds us a bit of some of Tangerine Dream's soundtrack work of a decade later. "Quasarsphere" is atmospheric and spacey, a shorter piece. "Pluralis" is the 20+ minute epic closer, very much akin to "Echo Waves". (Rock, Out Sound) LP, Vinyl record album
