An album with a horse on the cover, and a sound that's maybe even more soulful than the first mighty outing by Babe Ruth – quite a lot, given the strength of that debut! Female singer Jenny Haan seems to have an even greater presence here – working some nice currents of color through ... (Rock) read moreCD

There's few groups who could ever hope to wrap together influences from Stax Records, Ennio Morricone, and Curtis Mayfield – and whole the whole thing could ever turn out well – but the mighty Babe Ruth do exactly that, and still find time for some of their own unique grooves as well! ...

A group so great and so groovy, they ended up having a huge influence on the early sound of hip hop – thanks to a wonderfully funky sound at the core of their progressive rock groove! Babe Ruth have this rhythmic impulse that's really amazing – a way of working bass, drums, and ... (Rock) read moreCD
Pure genius from the mind of Pete Brown – and a seminal slice of sound from the Harvest Records empire – a record that's every bit as messed up as you'd guess from the title – and we mean that in the best way possible! The album flies its freak flag high, but never in a messed up ... (Rock) read moreCD
Long hair, jazzy riffing, and all the best hope that the early years of prog had to offer – all coming together on a record that's years ahead of its time! It's really hard to put a label on Pete Brown's sounds with Piblokto – music that's maybe more poetic than most of its ... (Rock) read moreCD
Michael Chapman —
Window ... LP Harvest/Light In The Attic, Early 70s. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)...
Out Of Stock
Maybe our favorite album ever from Michael Chapman – a bit more stripped-down and rootsy than his other Harvest Records classics, but in a really great way! There's a fluid spirit to the music right from the start – a great focus on Michael's vocals and guitar, but support from ... (Rock) read moreLP, Vinyl record album

A definite fireball from the legendary early lineup of Deep Purple – a record that has the group soaring to the skies in a blazing blend of guitars, keyboards, bass, and drums! A set like this is seminal for understanding just how far rock music stepped in just a few short years – ... (Rock) read moreCD
An incredible record – and one we wouldn't trade for anything! Despite what you may think about Roy Harper's later work, his early records are pure genius – and this one is easily the best! The album's a mindblowing set of folk rock tunes – with the feel of classic work by Tim ... (Rock) read moreLP, Vinyl record album
A rare US release by one of Japan's hippest combos of the 70s – The Sadistic Mika Band, a group who'd absorbed a heck of a lot of prog rock styles, but who also had a weird sound all its own. The group were "discovered" by Roxy Music – who had a big hand in bringing them to ... (Rock) read moreLP, Vinyl record album
A group with an English name, but a sound that's right up there with the best Italian prog groups of the 70s – and an approach that may well be more ambitious than most! The album's got a spacious approach at the start – never a leap right into jamming, and instead this way of building ... (Rock) read moreLP, Vinyl record album
A seminal 70s set from this key Aussie band – one that almost had more of an impact here in the US than they did in their homeland! The sound is pretty tight, even though there's some larger horns on some cuts – and The Saints have a razor-sharp guitar edge that doesn't profess to be ... (Rock) read moreCD
A later, oft overlooked gem from Soft Machine – 1975's Bundles, which was the first non-numbered Soft Machine LP, and a record that finds the group moving into electric Miles influenced jazz rock, perhaps more profoundly than ever before. With a lineup that was often in flux, and a sound ... (Rock) read moreLP, Vinyl record album

Spontaneous Combustion blast it out of the park with this early 70s gem – a record that has all the complicated changes of a long-winded prog session, yet packs the punch of a tighter trio outfit in the end! There's a focus here that goes way beyond most of their contemporaries – hard ... (Rock) read moreLP, Vinyl record album
A record that's as weird and wonderful as its cover – and every bit as colorful too! Tea & Sympathy may not have gone onto the fame as some of their late 60s UK contemporaries, but the group have a similarly groundbreaking, genre-busting quality on this classic set for Harvest Records ...

One of the best jazz rock combos to grace the Harvest label in the early 70s – a German trio who've got plenty of proggish inflections, and who really serve up some great keyboards and guitar over heavy drums! There's a bit of vocals on the set, natch, but the best tunes feature lots of ... (Rock) read moreLP, Vinyl record album
